"Aloha ladies and gentlemen and welcome aboard your United Airlines flight to Hawaii. I see the captain has turned off the no cocktail sign so order up a Mai Tai. You may now stagger around freely and enjoy the flight."

"Aloha and welcome aboard"


United Airlines began service to Honolulu Hawaii on May first 1947. Along the way they have had a strong relationship with Hawaii, Trader Vic and even Tiki. I thought it may be fun to have a place to post the many items that United has
put out over the years. So if you have some good stuff in your collection please post some pictures.

Now grab your tickets.
(Chicago to Hawaii 1965)

Jump On the Stratocruiser and lets go.


Out the right side of the aircraft you will notice beautiful Diamond Head


Here a few things from my collection. United Trader Vic's Service menu.

Inside of the menu.

A great little in flight menu with great graphics and an insert about Hawaiian culture
Front and back.

Inside.


The loose insert.

Back.


That's all I have but it's a start.
Thanks for flying with us...watch your step when exiting the aircraft...buh-bye now..buh-bye

Trav,

Here are a couple of menus I have

This one has a downstairs Hawaiian Lounge on the StratoCruiser aircraft. Now that is one swinging lounge - free drinks and smoking promoted!










The menu is from United Airlines Royal Hawaiian service. Mai Tais are now $2





Also the Trader Vic's United Airlines Postcard.






Here is another post with a pretty comprehensive listing of Trader Vic's and United Airlines.

I love this one...

"Two Tourists Drown in 20 Foot Surf."

Looks like a dry hair paddle out.


Great collection of advertising, though!

United Airlines was the official airlines for Disney in the 60's and early 70's.
There were signs thru out the park at Disneyland promoting air travel with
United Airlines .Here is a kids menu depicting the Enchanted tiki room on the
back cover of the menu.


Not from my personal collection, photos courtesy of World Toy.

1961surf, That menu from the enchanted Tiki Room is classic. Here are a couple of photos of the statehood commission flight from Hawaii to Washington. The first photo is the flight crew in Hawaii and the second photo is a group of veterans ready to welcome the flight in D.C.
