When did we start using planes as mass transportation?

    Commercially, flight as a popular means for mass transportation started around the 1950s. Back when it was first starting out, pilots were often asked for autographs and treated like celebrities. When travelling, people would dress up in their nicest clothes, since it was such a new, exciting, and expensive thing. That’s a far cry from the way people travel on airplanes today.

    Airplanes can actually be a greener way to travel depending on the distance being travelled. If you’re going to be travelling just a short distance, it’s probably cheaper for you and better for the environment to simply drive. However, if you’re travelling long distances, planes will actually use less fuel and cost you less money.
