National Geographic : 1966 May
It took Mrs. Sullivan 27years to get Mr. Sullivan to Hawaii. A United jet did it in an afternoon. An afternoon of relaxing in seats like small sofas. (Zzzzzz.) Of eating a 6-course gourmet dinner. (Sir loin steak with all the trimmings.) Of watching the latest movie. (Color and wide-screen, even.) Of listening to six channels of music. (First time he'd ever heard stereo.) "Do they really kiss you When you get off the plane?" Of being pampered by beautiful steward esses. (How can anyone that pretty be so nice?) Of knowing that the biggest airline in the world is everlastingly on the job. ("Another pillow, Mr. Sullivan?") When he stepped off the jet, Mr. Sullivan didn't say much about the flight. All he said was, he'd wasted 27 years. jofythe friendly skies gf United.
