First Class Airplane Lounges of 60’s and 70’s

The 1970s was without doubt, a golden age of air travel. It was the era that saw the upper decks of Boeing 747s turn into full-scale cocktail lounges and restaurants for first class flyers. On the lower deck, there were also coach or economy lounges.


To many industry insiders, it looks as though First Class is not so much disappearing as it is experiencing a reshuffling and renaming. But airlines might be finding that they just have too many classes.
