Product description

A celebration of an iconic British airline which although short lived (1940 to 1974) came to symbolise luxury and exclusivity in the jet age which followed World War II. The relatively short period during which BOAC existed coincided with what is sometimes known as the Golden Age of Flying. An era when people dressed to fly and thought that air travel was special, almost as important as the destination itself. This book is not a history of BOAC, although history obviously comes into it. It is more a celebration of an era which will never return. In our times air travel has become much safer, much cheaper, but infinitely less glamorous. This book recalls the days when flying was thought to be so exotic that major Hollywood movies were set entirely in airport departure lounges.
