Wishing We Could Pack Our Boogie Shoes

passengers on Air Canada on dance floor

“The pilot has turned off the seatbelt sign. You may now get your groove on.”

Passengers on a transatlantic flight on Air Canada may have heard that when the airline used the top floor of the new Boeing 747 as a dance floor in the early ’70s. Disco and other groovy tunes came from 8-track tapes.

People in the marketing department wanted to call it the Mile High Club until being told that name was already taken for a different activity.

Wouldn’t we all be less stressed if we could “dance ’till you feel better” as James Brown would say?
