Watched a random episode out of Seinfeld DVD set and this was the opening shot.

I went looking:

https://www.businessinsider.com/don...portation-pan-am-eastern-new-york-2019-1 interesting video of a younger Donald Trump there.

Info on his airline:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_Shuttle

Quote
Its aircraft were newly painted in white livery and the interiors redecorated with such features as maple wood veneer, chrome seat belt latches, and gold colored lavatory fixtures. The airline also was a leader in the adoption of advanced technologies; it introduced some of the first passenger self-service check-in kiosks in coordination with Kinetics at its LaGuardia base and partnered with LapStop, a startup firm which rented laptop computers to passengers. The airline was also an early adopter of the GTE Airfone in-flight telephone system.[6][8] Flights offered free meals, including chicken and steak on some flights, as well as complimentary champagne, beer and wine.[10] Both Trump and Pan Am spent millions on advertising campaigns around this time in an attempt to maintain a strong competitive position.[5]


I think most airlines now don't even offer free meals on domestic flights and on international flights, unless you are in business or first, you get a bologna sandwich or may even have to pay $ to get that sandwich.

I took the Trump shuttle once back in the day. Great flight good fare. Only problem was due to traffic the ride from LaGuardia to mid-town Manhattan was longer than the flight itself.

Another one of his failed business endeavors.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Friend once told me if you ever fly into NY or fly out of it, never use LaGuardia.
