That airplane is a lot nicer than my apartment!! :-)
I read somewhere that it may be a fake picture for marketing purposes. No seat belts in sight either! I can only imagine what Business or First class would have been like:)
That would be nice today.
And a half-empty flight, too - now that would be nice today as well! (Perhaps not for the airline's bottom line, but certainly for economy class passengers - think of being able to stretch out over those rows of seats without having to pay extra for the privilege...)
Does look like an advertising mock-up, though.
At the prices they charges in those days, they could afford to fly with empty seats and still make a profit.
Not sure about the late 60s though - the 747 didn't take to the skies till 1970.My first flight on one was in 1972 and it didn't look anything like that.Edited: 4:55 am, January 21, 2014
Looks lovely but if you think about the fact that smoking would've been allowed... yuck.
