Throwback Thursday: What Airline Websites Looked Like Over 10 Years Ago

March 13, 2014 at 10:22 AM | by | Comments (0)

Sure, we love all the speed and comfort of modern travel, but it didn't get that way overnight. Every Thursday, we're going to take a look back at travel the way it used to be, whether that's decades or centuries ago. This is Throwback Thursday, travel edition.

It's hard to imagine, we know...but a whole 14 years ago the internet did exist. It not only existed, but it was hot enough at the time for airlines to take notice, and begin shifting focus to things like online bookings, flight status, web specials and—we laugh now—pager alerts.

Today we're rewinding to 2000, the good old days before smartphones, before the TSA, and before airlines understood that flash-heavy welcome pages made for horrible user experience. Let's take a look:

aeroflot.com in 2000, and 2014

airindia.com in 2000, and 2014

alaskaairlines.com in 2000, and 2014

alitalia.com in 2000, and 2014

britishairways.com in 2000, and 2014

cathaypacific.com in 2000, and 2014

delta.com in 2000, and 2014

japanairlines.com in 2000, and 2014

lan.com in 2000, and 2014

lufthansa.com in 2000, and 2014

qantas.com in 2000, and 2014

southwest.com in 2000, and 2014

united.com & continental.com in 2000, and 2014

usairways.com in 2000, and 2014

Bonus: two airlines with websites that existed after 2000:

hawaiianairlines.com in 2004, and 2014

jetblue.com in 2002, and 2014

Note: We really wanted to include American Airlines and some other international carriers, but the wayback machine wasn't playing nicely for all searches.
