Back to the future of airfare


Check out this mid-1960s Braniff ad about the future of air travel. I'm not sure which I find scarier, the line: "You don't have to carry a passport, because a computer already knows more about you than you do," or those weird egg-like seats. I like the idea of being able to set your mood to a certain level, though. And the idea that you could just push a button and chow appears. Unfortunately, the reality is oh so much different!

Would anyone right now even be willing to hazard a guess at the future of air travel?
