The Age of Mass Travel is overwhelmingly associated with the introduction in 1958 of the Boeing 707, the first commercially successful jet. Overnight it changed the economics of flying. Much faster and larger than the turboprop, it meant slashed ticket prices and more travelers, ushering in a boom in travel..

American Airlines was the first to introduce the enhanced Boeing 707 Fanjets, pictured here, two years later. Dubbed the Astrojet, with lightning bolt pin striping, it was quieter and more fuel-efficient, with longer range and less pollution. These improvements hastened the already precipitous decline in transatlantic ocean travel.
