How old were you when you first flew on an airplane and what was it like?

I was 8: it was the flight on which we returned to Greece from Australia for four years: 1979. Singapore Airlines, I believe.

I don’t remember much about the last time I flew to Sydney, let alone anything from the ’70s. But I do remember:

  • Cool exotic beverages, the like of which I had never had. In the 90s, it was Ginger Ale. In the 70s, it was mineral water.
  • Me commenting to the stewardess that this mineral water stuff tasted cool.
  • It was somehow a fun adventure.
  • It certainly felt more luxurious than the bus with wings experience I’ve had the last 20 years.
  • And we got Singapore Airlines playing cards! And they were cool!
  • And we stopped over at Perth! And that was so cool! Because it was still in Australia, but it was so so SO far away from Launceston!
