It wasn't just the cereal bar. Since the first passenger flight departed Tampa to St. Petersburg, Florida on January 1, 1914, much has changed. That day, pilot Tony Jannus drove a single occupant on the 23-minute ride.
Today, the glamor of early travel has been replaced by the flip flops. With the modernization of the jets and access to pricing, air travel has become available to millions of people around the world. To commemorate 100 years of commercial aviation, the British newspaper The guardian is launching a really impressive interactive site. Made by design studio Klin, In Flight shows all airplanes that are in the air across the planet in real time.
Still, the material shows in a timeline the history of aviation in photos and information on how many tickets have been sold to date. The number goes up from 1, for that inaugural flight, to absurd 2 billion and 700 million.
