Believe it or not, flying was once romantic and glamorous.  It was actually a thing to look forward to with passengers being pampered and cosseted rather than herded through terminals like cattle and crammed into uncomfortable seats like so many battery hens.  Transatlantic flights were an adventure, not an exercise to see how long one could remain in a shoebox eating foul meals.  Flight was the stuff of dreams. 

In the early decades, flying was promoted with a spirit that can only be called evangelical.  No one was entirely sure what the aeroplanes of the future would be like, but they would certainly be worthy of the visions of the pioneers.  They foresaw many of the technical advances we enjoy, but not the development of the indispensable/nonessential transport system constantly distorted by relentless economic pressures of today that serves as the greatest advert for rail travel ever conceived.
