Why Flying On The Hindenburg Zeppelin Was So Expensive

The only thing most of us know about the German airship called the Hindenburg is that it caught fire in 1937, a disaster that was recorded on film with the announcer proclaiming “Oh, the humanity!” The Hindenburg had made 36 Atlantic crossings in its short life, for which passengers paid $400, equivalent to more than $7,000 today. It had cabins that could sleep 70 passengers, although they were small. No matter, because there was plenty of room to socialize in the dining room, lounge, writing room, bar, and even a smoking room. Take a peek into the luxury travel offered by the Hindenburg in a gallery of photos at Bored Panda.
