BOAC Monarch Service London - New York 1967
New York is one of the world’s most exciting places to visit and this in-flight menu cover perfectly reflected the glamour of the city in 1967.
It showed elegantly dressed revelers on the terrace of a Manhattan skyscraper, the lights of the Big Apple twinkling in the background.
It was created for the British Overseas Airways Corporation, the British state-owned airline established in 1940 with the merger of Imperial Airways and British Airways Ltd.
BOAC launched its premium Monarch Service in 1951 on its London New York route.
Six or seven course lunches and dinners were served to passengers in First Class and complimentary cigarettes were offered after take-off and after meals.
In 1974, BOAC and BEA (British European Airways) merged and formed today’s British Airways. Its main rival was Pan Am, which ceased operations in 1991.
