For all the wonderful advances in modern technology there are still a handful of goods and services that have gone to Hell in a hand-basket in present day. One such service is that of riding on a commercial airplane. Those of you who spent the holidays traveling by plane know exactly what I'm talking about. But just compare the smelly, cramped and uncomfortable seats of today's planes with some vintage photos of a Boeing 747 taken back in the 1970s.
It just makes me sad that we've deviated from something so luxurious in order to save a few dollars.
