Excellent entertainment and historic air travel fun!
Glad to see that others enjoyed the movie on TCM this evening. I'm rather disturbed that they used an older "cut-up" version that was intended for network showing. Several good scenes were cut out of the way. (I have several different versions and cuts of this movie on DVD and VHS). Yes, I still enjoy watching the movie.
I think the important thing to observe is that during the 1970's air travel was considered "much more" luxurious than it is now, and a majority of middle class Americans had not yet taken to the sky. Believe it or not, you really did get real wine glasses while in coach. :-) The set design of the 707 is EXACTLY perfect. I flew with my parents many times and remember those interiors well. I wish the airlines would take a look at this movie while they are doing personnel reviews. HEHE..
Sure, the writing is a little "campy" but overall it is an excellent movie with actual historic value.
