Just look at those seats! They really were wide in those days. http://www.boeing.com/companyoffices/gallery/images/commercial/707-02.jpghttp://2.bp.blogspot.com/_tX5QsEFCZwE/TTMfX5v5q4I/AAAAAAAAABU/qHSIdYDu7WI/s640/0312914.jpg
Or perhaps the people were thinner in those days...
That's first class, and so the seats ARE (and were) wider up there. I flew BOAC (British Overseas Airway Corporation) a couple of times back in the 1960's but never saw service like that. The few times I was lucky enough to be upgraded to First Class (mostly, if not always on TWA, or Pan Am), again, I never saw service like that.DaBris
