Classic Clip Monday: Air travel in the '70s

Ah, air travel. I don't think I've been on a flight in the past few years where my knees haven't been jammed into the seat in front of me, and I got more than a two-pack of ginger cookies for my meal.

But remember when traveling by plane was still surrounded by a bit of romance and luxury -- not to mention ashtrays in the armrests? Check out these great '70s commercials. Holy cow -- prime rib! Salad tossed seatside! Stewardesses to help sew on buttons! And I LOVE the United Airlines "Friendship Room" -- a little lounge smack in the middle of coach.

Fly anywhere in the '70s? We'd love to hear if any of this stuff actually happened.
