Great shots, Aharon, I remember these shuttles well, I was on several every week for many years. The best years of the NY/DC/BOS shuttle were pre-jet, however. EAL flew the old Constellations back then. What a joy to relax in the rear lounge with a stiff cocktail and a good smoke... Those were the days, my friend!

Thanks NMLW, Hoggydog, KCD, Hornetdriver25, and Lifejogger for kind words.

 

Hoggydog, I am using FSX default Boston scenery

 

KCD, glad that my screenshots reminded you of actual flights that you flew on as passenger. I did not know that Eastern Electras had exclusive lounges in the back that served drinks and offered smoking areas!!!!

 

Hornetdriver25, it is good old fashioned timeless masterpiece 11 year old freeware SGA model made in year 2004!!!!!!

 

Regards,

No, Aharon, they weren't "exclusive" lounges. for special passengers, at least on the shuttle. That was the aircraft configuration, a semi-circular lounge in the very rear of the aircraft. The seats were highly sought so you had better be early in line if you wanted to sit there. They were comfortable and they were in the smoking section (remember those?), and in those early days you could buy a cocktail. Later on all those amenities went away as the "isle cart" made its debut. Loved those shuttles!
