    As far back as the late 20’s airplanes were being designed as means for travel.  Planes before then were mainly used as war machines.  A Boeing model 80 was designed in 1928 for the sole purpose of passenger flight, followed shortly by a Ford Trimotor (The Tin Goose” in the early 30’s.  So from that point onward in history air travel has become more and more common and the quickest means for traveling great distances.

    Most early advances in sophisticated airplane design came in the 1930’s, but it wasn’t until after World War 2 that commercial flights really became prevalent on a massive scale. Old war planes and bombers became repurposed to fly passengers to numerous locations. The first real commercial planes as they exist today began in the 1950’s, with designs and features that supported the comfort of passengers, such as food and beverages served in-flight and comfortable seating. It was also during this time that airlines began to adopt jet-propelled planes as their main transportation standard.
