BOAC Monarch Service Menu & Wine List 1950s
British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) was the UK's state-owned airline created in 1939 by the merger of Imperial Airways and British Airways Ltd. It continued operating overseas services throughout World War II and was the first airline to operate a jet service across the North Atlantic.
BOAC launched its premium Monarch Service in 1951 on its London to 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.
