Every time I think about .50s on a plane I think of Bud Peterson:

You don't suppose they just painted 'em flat black and put jet engines on 'em?

No, for some reason everytime they tried to fly somewhere the plane would circle around to where it started.

I used to know the scientific name for that effect, but, I've forgotten it.

Maybe it'll come back to me.

According to Boeing's site:
Quote:
The first DC-3 built was the Douglas Sleeper Transport also known as Skysleepers by airline customers and it was the height of luxury. Fourteen plush seats in four main compartments could be folded in pairs to form seven berths, while seven more folded down from the cabin ceiling. The plane could accommodate 14 overnight passengers or 28 for shorter daytime flights. The first was delivered to American Airlines in June 1936, followed two months later by the first standard 21-passenger DC-3.
14 paying customers on an overnight flight.

According to Wikipedia the range was 1,500 miles and the cruise speed was just over 200mph. So a flight of maximum range, say NYC to Dallas, would take 7.5 hours. I can see why they would want a sleeper.

But I bet those tickets were expensive, adjusted for inflation. Only 14 customers to split the cost of the 7.5 hour flight.

The president of American Airlines talked Douglas into building the DC-3 because the DC-2 was too narrow to have berths on both sides. He promised to buy 20 planes. That's why the sleepers were built before the regular DC-3s and why the DC-3s were created in the first place. I'll bet the private cabin for two was really expensive, probably reserved for celebrities...

or honeymooners.
