Once upon a time, air travel was out of reach for many; while it broadened people’s horizons and made the world a much smaller place, it was also very expensive. If you’ve flown for many years you probably remember a time when air travel was exciting and people got dressed up for the occasion. With improvements in technology and increased competition, the price of air travel has fallen dramatically since its early days. This has taken some of the excitement and spectacle away (air travel is no longer the “event” it used to be) but the upside is that affordable flights are available to everyone!
