Post Scriptum. I got an annoying feeling that ‘Delta Air Lines – The History In Magazine Advertising’ series, ended in May, is incomplete without the most recent ads. So the series is back for just one final post containing the most important history fact, summary of this series, and ads from a digital era. Complete!
June 17, 1929 – Delta operates first passenger flight carry five passengers and one pilot.
Happy 85th Anniversary, Delta!

It’s amazing how the airlines have changed and are still changing. I know a lot of older men are so disappointed in how flight attendants are chosen these days.

Michelle, one blogger (Pam) has commented on one of my previous posts –
“They are the same attendants, they’ve just become older :)”

I’ve told you many times how much I love these posts, Alex! Especially the old nostaglia. That is amazing on 85 years, isn’t it? The biggest change for me will always be how I remember when the adults smoked on the flights. But, my favorite memory is forever that I got to sit in the cockpit on the ramp! That was sooooo much fun. I always traveled by myself being “shipped” between cities (family) as a little boy :)

Mike, I would love to be shipped between cities in one of the old jets! And I would definitely smoke on those flights… Impossible! However, the “cockpit” is still on my list [smile]

Memo – give them a birthday hug from me! Love the shot with the airport and also the one with the iconic Hollywood signage. Delta gets you there!

Thanks, Maria! Unfortunately, I had to miss the Grand opening of Delta’s Flight Museum on the 17th. But, I’ll give them your hug very soon [smile]

What a great way to end the series, so interesting to see how the ads have changed.

Thank you, Catherine! Yes, the advertisements are so different novadays. I wish Delta would use old ads.
I like this post, Alex, because the imagery is very interesting.

Thank you, Andrew. “Interesting” is a very good word to describe Delta’s modern ads. Unfortunarely, these are not as attractive as vintage ads [sad face]
