Though commercial aviation has become a tedious exercise in repeatedly proving that your shampoo is not actually made of C-4, it's easy to forget that air travel used to be too expensive for the average American. Flying was an event, something you dressed up for. It wasn't so easy to book a relatively inexpensive flight one evening and be in a faraway land the very next day. Adjusted for inflation, flying has never been a better deal.
