MEET YOU AT THE BAR

Onboard Hospitality - - Galley Gossip -

BOAC and Pan Am had a 14-seater down­stairs bar on their Stra­tocruis­ers, ideal for the 18-hour flights (with two stops) to New York from Lon­don. Uniquely, TWA of­fered the 707 Coach Lounge for Econ­omy pas­sen­gers, while Pan Am's Boe­ing 707s in­cluded an at­trac­tive six seater Clip­per Lounge for­ward of the First cabin, with an in­di­vid­u­ally-de­signed bulk­head and curved seat­ing on North Amer­i­can routes. United’s DC-6 flights (and air­lines us­ing Lock­heed Elec­tras) fea­tured a so­cial­is­ing lounge at the rear with a dressed ta­ble.
