Introducing Round Trip Check-In from TWA

I would not say that the seventies are the “Golden Age” of air travel, but certainly a bronze or silver age compared to now. In this ad from late in the decade, TWA introduces the convenience of Round Trip Check-In. This timesaver allows you to get BOTH of your boarding passes when you take the first leg of your trip, so getting through the airport on the way home is a breeze.

You just show up 5 minutes before the flight, walk onto the plane, light up a cigarette and enjoy the journey home.
