Food

Feeding air passengers, always a problem, is rapidly becoming a major consideration as competition becomes more intense. The author who has studied the matter from both the airline and the research-consumer point of view, believes that free picnic box lunches must give way to piping hot attractive meals served at the passengers’ expense.

Side Slips

WE SEE by the papers that one of the competitors in the EnglandAustralia Derby was expected to land at an intermediate point “where fresh fuel will be waiting for him.” Has aviation now reached the point where we are going to have to have “fresh” fuel in order to “eliminate the harsh irritants” from our motors ? Heaven help us if we are going to begin to “look for the date on the can” in order to prevent aeronautical halitosis, pink tooth brush, or B.O.
