The seats were roomier, they had actual stewardesses that gave actual customer service and the airlines made money - lots of money. Now, flying is like being sealed up in a coffin with 'flight attendants' and the airlines are hemorrhaging money.

What happened?

The price of a ticket was much more expensive back then and they weren't making "lots of money". In fact, they were losing money since they weren't flying those crafts at full capacity on domestic flights. The airlines found they could fill the flights to full capacity on those aircraft they had added more seats to. They began phasing those in slowly at first but due to the higher demand, they instead phased out the old Boeings with larger seats out entirely.

By adding more seats, they were able to reduce the prices of the tickets thus making them more affordable to John and Jane Doe. Within a decade of making those changes, PanAM, Eastern, United, American Airlines, and British Airways more than quintupled their profits and added more than 500 new aircraft and hundreds of more destinations to their itinerant flight plans.

The consumer is still given the options of larger seating and up-scaled service in Business Class and First Class cabins today, but at a higher price.
