The 747 Piano Bar.

Jump to last reply

I traveled to Hawaii often in 70's . Early on, people got dressed up to fly - like going on a date or out to dinner at a nice restaurant. Men wore coats and ties, women wore dresses and high heels.

A stewardess friend, now Flight Attendants, said she knew the glamorous days of flying were coming to an end when a passenger boarded her 757 to Hawaii wearing slippers and curlers. Then there were the polyester leisure suits.

I flew several flights to and from HNL on a United 747 that had a piano bar in the center of the cabin and accessible to all flight classes. The five hour airborne parties to and from SFO were incredible. One flight had a Polka band, and people danced. (1972?)

The following is a nice article about the piano bar and different flight experience.
