Businessmen call it... (and so wll yoa!) "The world's most relaxing jetliner!" Executives don't hesitate to voice their enthusiasm about the Douglas DC-8 Jetliner. "Felt fresher when I got there than when I took off." "You can get in some good licks of work in those Douglas seats!" "The lounges are almost like clubs!" Your first DC-8 flight will show you what relaxation aloft really can mean. Individual lighting is built right into your seat. Service buttons are at hand. Aisles are wide, seats are broad and deep, windows are large. And on every DC-8 flight, you're accompanied by that famous Douglas feature-peace of mind! When you make your maiden flight in the DC-8 you'll agree: "It's the world's most relaxing jetliner!"
