42 Futuristic Airline Features

Inspired by the Era of Mad Men with Don Draper

— October 11, 2010 — Autos
Back in the days where people like Don Draper of Mad Men were traveling in style, there was comfortable, luxurious and spacious seating, a stewardess doting on your every need with an impeccable smile and in-flight smoking was definitely not frowned upon. Nowadays, each flight has sardine-like seating, aggressive and uptight stewardess and airline travel is less than glamorous.

Needless to say, airline travel has changed tremendously since the 60s. However, there are still the few remaining airlines who view luxury and glamor as priority when it comes to air travel.

Check out the gallery to see these ultra-glamorous airlines living it up.
