    Obviously, UA has made no changes and picked up the old Continental lock, stock and barrel. Yep. You betcha.

    Clearly I'm joking around here. But it's fun to watch stuff like this, for me anyway.

    UGLY uniforms and passenger clothing, too!

    Hard to imagine how anyone thought this was aesthetically pleasing in any way... but as ugly as it looked, there was still The Pub!

    PSA was a classy airline from what I could see and hear from my US Air friends. Its a shame I wasn't around yet to fly them.

    I really don't miss the pre-deregulation airfare prices, though.

    All in all, I'm happy to trade all of that for the transcon and TATL/TPAC prices we have today.

    They were still flying those pubs around in 1993 when I went SFO-HNL-GUM (HKG). It was hilarious when they announced "the pub is open!" at 1 am in the morning.
