The Evolution of the Airline Cabin
In the early days of commercial passenger flights, the airline cabin wasn't the comfortable experience it is today. Although scheduled passenger flights had been available since 1910, these were often short basic services that allowed fast travel between major cities and airports. Therefore, development was slow. The public were initially scared to fly and the frequent turbulence from these early commercial planes made airsickness very common.
However, when the First World War began, armies were quick to invest into the development of the airplane, increasing capabilities and opening the doors for the first commercial airline passengers. Join us as we delve into the history of the airline cabin and how it has changed from the early days of air flight to the modern, technology packed cabins of today.
