I ran into this little memento going through old photo albums. It is a boarding pass from a flight from 1986.
Nothing peculiar about the front. But once you flip to the reverse… The menu of inflight drinks was conveniently placed behind the boarding pass! I guess so you could plan how to get your drink on while waiting to board the plane at the gate? Or, more likely, back then these were not in the inflight magazine -or- there was no inflight magazine to begin with… And note the rules.
I don’t remember much from those flights. Of course, I remember the smoking and non-smoking sections. I do remember getting a tray with a full meal (of airplane food, mind you) no matter how long the flight was. I remember being able to get a free deck of cards or my own wings. Those were the days, ey?
