Back when travel was special

One of our readers shot us an email, and in an aside, bemoaned the hassle that air transport has become. Crowds, indignities at security, and of course, jam packed planes where you feel more like livestock than person. Sure, it’s cheap. But for a time, there was a vision of air travel that showed elegance and comfort as the way forward.

  1. It would be cheaper if not for the taxes piled on. Air travel to Europe is an atrocity of taxes these days.

    I just got back from Alaska, and the flights were not at all fun. TSA was actually reasonable at Asheville and Anchorage. We got jabbed between Minneapolis and Detroit because of the fire at the Chicago Center, which made that leg even more of atrocity.
