Throwback Thursday: The First Airline Lounge Opened 75 Years Ago

November 20, 2014 at 12:40 PM | 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.

This week we got a little restless and hopped down to Dallas for the day, with the express purpose of wandering around AA's C.R. Smith Museum, about a 10-minute drive from DFW Airport. We'll have more on it later since it is a very worthwhile diversion, but allow us to highlight their small exhibit on the history of airline lounges.

You see, American Airlines originated the ideas of airport lounges way, way back when commercial aviation was still in its infancy. 2014 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Admirals Club, the first of which debuted in December 1939 as the "Flagship Club" at what is now New York's LaGuardia Airport.

Travel Contest Alert: Win Tickets on a KLM Final Flight

October 21, 2014 at 4:09 PM | by | Comments (0)

When we talk about exciting, historical flights we typically talk about inaugurals. First flights are celebrated for a reason; they are a promise of travel to come and often a demonstration of the growth of a community or the prowess of new technology. Why, then, shouldn't we also celebrate the end of a service, after an airplane has delivered on its promise?

KLM agrees, and they're now holding a contest for one lucky AvGeek to join the final flight of their MD-11 on November 11.

KLM has been flying the three-holers since 1993, and will retire them from the fleet next month.
