To assert that we are in a new golden age of air travel we should first define the first golden age. As we mention in a previous article, the golden age we are all most familiar with was characterized by new cabin designs and longer flights.
It was a time when air travel had become more comfortable and was finally able to connect major cities of the world with just one or two flights. This air travel was still only restricted to the wealthiest of our society.
It’s true – what some think of as the golden age still had separate upper and lower classes. But even economy class still meant amazing service and full meals.
