Here’s one invention we all can be grateful for. Planes in the early 1900s were rudimentary compared to the powerful jets of today. Back in the day, airplanes were used for military purposes or for leisure, but were not quite yet a significant mode of transportation. In today’s ever increasingly globalized world, airplanes are a necessity as people travel regularly for work or pleasure.
Today’s airplanes can seat hundreds of people and some even offer beds, showers, and other luxury features. Today airlines also serve multiple meals, beverages, and more as passengers sometimes fly 12+ hours in one stretch. Now, if only someone could do something about the problem of leg room!
