Trans-Canada Air Lines Lighter

Share

Flying aboard the Vickers Viscount in the 1950s and 60s was a luxury experience for passengers who enjoyed full steak dinners, large windows, and tons of legroom. In that era, smoking was permitted in passenger planes. To promote a relaxing in-flight experience, Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA) provided complimentary lighters to passengers.
