 TWA


002
Company: Trans World Airlines
Photo taken by: TWA, 1958-1959
Photo sent by: Dan Uscian
Aircraft Type/class: Lockheed Starliner/Super Constellation 1649A, 1st class
Meal Type: Appears to be steak, spuds and mushrooms with salad, fruit cocktail, roll with butter and dessert cake (carrot cake?)
Drink: coffee cake
Note: Don't know what this tasted like, but from speaking with those who worked for TWA back in the 50s, the airline served delicious meals-better than today's meals. Despite this being a 1st class meal, all dishes, plates and bowls are made of plastic. Weight was more of a critical factor with the older piston powered airliners and this was also reflected in the meal service


001
Photo taken by:
Chris Smith
Flying from: Frankfurt to Washington DC, July 1974
Class: First
Meal type: Second meal service - smoked loin of port, Westphalian ham, veal aspic, Bierschinken, Mettwurst, liver sausage, bratwurst, sauerkraut, german potato salad, mixed pickles, giant beer pretzels, assorted breads and rolls, draft beer
Comments: TWA called this the Oktoberfest beer party, and it was set up on the table of the first class lounge in a 707. There were only three passengers in first class that day, and it was impressive to see that the entire set up was made just for us.
