    1953 was many years before my time but this clip is interesting for three reasons.

    It was the launch of long-haul tourist or economy class by BOAC.

    It shows how much fares have fallen in real terms since the 1950s.

    This Trinidad flight by Constellation took 28 and a quarter hours.
