Founded in 1946, the Scandinavian Airlines System has, over the years, grown immensely and is now the eighth largest air carrier in all of Europe. It recently celebrated its 70th anniversary. On that occasion, it released advertising photographs from the time between 1950s and 1980s, which are exhibited in SAS Museum in Oslo, Norway.
The photographs feature the airplane meals service for first-class passengers during flights in their airlines. They show an exquisite display of menu served by flight attendants and chefs, containing the top notch dishes including lobsters and caviar. There are even wide variety of drinks, probably even aged, to suit the finely dressed ladies and gentlemen travelling on board.
