Fisrt class air transportation is what you get when you win a contest (where the grand prize is a trip to London) sponsored by British Airways! That's what made it better--it didn't cost me a nickel!

What's first class. I always flew military standby or military confirm when I could afford it which was rare.

The best meal I ever had on a flight was in first class on a British Airways flight from London to Toronto in 1987. My sister and I enjoyed champagne cocktails with our meals!

Before my time but I would have preferred a small cigar. Also, I remember having a meal on flights.

What a bizarre cross-promotion--cigarettes and an airline!

Great post, Cliffy!
