Mo-Eye,

I just saw this Continental Airlines menu on ebay featuring Don the Beachcombers Food and Grog. I always knew about Trader Vic's and United Airlines but never knew about Don and Continental.

Nice to see one in the great / bad 1970s color.

Those 2 guys must have competed on everything!

I picked up another 1970's version of the Don the Beachcomber menu for Continental Airlines.



You could get a Chi Chi, a Proud Bird or a Beachcomber Mai Tai - take that Trader Vic!



And to think, you got all of that food for free back in the day...



$7.00 snack box anyone?

Cutaway showing the Micronesian Room, Hawaii Room, Polynesian Pub and California Room on a Continental 747.


Look at the pictures or carvings on the back wall.


Polynesian Pub

Fantastic brochure! The aircraft illustrated is a DC-10.

Fantastic! Will those days ever return? Now that's what I call a Dreamliner. Donn Beach mentions his airline connection in an interview here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=30245&forum=5&start=240&246 .

Air travel used to be depressingly amazing. I wish I'd been able to take a trip or two in that era.
