The Air Strip

Check out this laughably sexist early Seventies TV spot touting Braniff International stewardesses and their mid-flight "air strip." I'm not sure you could even get away with this in a beer commercial today.

Between Braniff's Emilio Pucci-clad stews and Southwest's flight attendants in short shorts, it must've been a great time to be alive for an unenlightened male business traveler flying in and out of Dallas Love Field, which is just down the block from where I'm typing this.
