TWA Skyliner Comforts
Here is a glimpse into a Skyliner cabin in which Jack Frye and company spearheaded for the benifit of in-flight passenger comforts. A pioneering concept made into reality thanks again to Mr. Frye's vision and desire to make air travel as comfortable and safe as possible. The one characteristice of the flight crew I see here is - Service. A similar purpose that was and is exhibited in hotel management taken to the skies.
TWA president Jack Frye with Miss Lilly Pons, noted operatic and radio star, and Miss Pons fiance, Andre Kostelonetz, composer and conductor. The three were photographed before one of the company's displays at the 1937 Kansas City motor show.
