Times Past: A living room that flies? In coach, no less
Snapshot from the Los Angeles Times' archives: Aug. 15, 1971
Sit back, stretch out, relax -- and remember how airlines could make you feel right at home. That's because there might have been as much room as home, even in coach. Yes, this was the lounge in coach. Of course, the party wasn't on every flight; this United ad says its Friend Ship Room was on 747s bound for New York, Chicago and Honolulu. Still, it was enough to make even today's first-class fliers a little envious.
