A pioneering in-flight editor comes to the end of the line
Interesting obituary earlier this week for Rose Benas Lustig, who recently died at age 97. Lustig was described as the editor of "the first consumer in-flight monthly," called Airlanes Magazine. Airlanes, which seems to have started up in 1936, was apparently published in New York and made available aboard the planes of several different airlines. As far as I know, the first in-flight published by a single airline was Pan Am's Clipper Magazine, begun in 1956.
