Monarch were still using the drop down TV last time I used them to fly to Florida! Think it was 2011.

While clearing my late Fathers house founds photos of me in the 60s on Pan Am upstairs in the cocktail lounge and it was thick like smog with all the smoke - and no seat belts !

I remember c30 years ago when working in Hong Kong and flying a lot between London and there getting films in cassette type of thing that went into your seat arm rest to watch your film of choice - BA flights

The smoking section was awful and I was a smoker back then,I remember coming back from Alicante and being sat in the row in front of the smoking section,the smell actually made me decide to stop and I sold my duty free cigs when we got home. Remember when the photographer's would be standing at the bottom of the steps taking photos of you as you got off the plane, they had them displayed on a board in the airport for you to buy when you flew home.

I only started flying in 2003. I remember being able to bring liquids on as well. And those drop down screens. I hated those.

Found this on-line. First flights for me were around 1983-84, as an unaccompanied minor. Always with BA, in Economy, sat alongside the other divorcee kids as we were shuttled between parents on both sides of the pond. Was always a real adventure. Toward the end of the flight theyd move you into any empty seats in First Class to get you off the plane first. They were exactly like the above. Today these look barely better than PE and nowhere near Business or First. So thats one thing thats got better..

First aircraft I went to Spain on didn't have overhead lockers, just a shelf like you have on a bus. Can't remember what the aircraft was but I think the airline was Dan-air London.
