The "Universal Air Travel Plan"
When you subscribe to the Universal Air Travel Plan, originated by American Airlines, you actually open a travel charge account good anywhere in the world. Holders of Air Travel Cards can charge tickets at any airlines office for travel all over the world (with the green card) or anywhere in North America (with the red card).
Under the Air Travel Plan, American can arrange for you to hold you own stock of tickets and, literally, write your own ticket
None of this would fly (no pun attended) these days! "Write your own ticket?" How long did this go on at American? And we're sure the "business wives" loved going along on trips for 2/3 the ticket price, like they were children. So yeah, things have definitely changed in air travel.
