1,000,000 Passengers Can't Be Wrong

The story of some of the people who made American Airlines what it is to-day

We Lead the Way

AMERICA is justly proud of her commercial air transport. None other of her industries has made such brilliant progress in so short a time. No other has ever attracted to it such a distinguished clientele,—nor drawn into its ranks such enthusiastic and outstandingly competent talent.


“Like a Kitten” in Sound-Proofed Sleepers

PASSENGERS SLEEPING COMFORTABLY IN AIRPLANES cruising close to 200 miles an hour are beginning to complain of being awakened by over-enthusiastic snoring or the click of a reading light switch from the far end of the cabin. No surprise then if companies operating the latest Douglas DSTs must soon display the familiar “Quiet is requested for the benefit of those who have retired” sign in night flying airliners.

Our Two Planes Are Indispensable

ONLY A FEW YEARS AGO I foolishly said I would never fly. I thought that aviation was not safe and I had too many responsibilities to take any chances in the air. However, I was persuaded to take a little spin over Lake George in an amphibian plane owned by Noel Macy who had an exceptionally good pilot from the Sikorsky factory.
