Airline Trivia

World First Scheduled Airline

The first scheduled airline was the St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line. It operated between St. Petersburg and Tamp in 1913. It reduced the travel between the two cities from a day to 22 minutes.

For more information, please see the Wikipedia entry on the airline.



Airlines of the World

One of my main interests is commercial aviation. For those of you out

The DC-3 is the airplane that made airlines able to make money by flying passengers without a subsidy.

Even now, over 75 years after it first entered service, the DC-3 is still flying and earning a living.

Michael Prophet has a great pictorial essay on surviving DC-3's.

there who are too young to remember, flying use to be fun. There was none of the TSA crap you had to go through. Pilots were permitted to allow passengers into the cockpit. You got real food onboard. Luggage, at least the first two bags, didn't cost you anything to check in. The airlines didn't nickel-and-dime you to death by charging for every single thing.

My main interest in airlines is in their "Golden Age" - the 1950's and 1960's. Flying was fun back then. People actually dressed up to fly. Many families went to the airport on a Sunday afternoon just to watch the planes. You got real food

onboard. You didn't have to go through so-called security to board the airplane.
