At first it was a charter airline, but in the late 70's Laker Airways introduced the first "no frills" air service between the UK and the USA. Laker Sytrain offered very cheap flight tickets, were onboard "extras" such as meals were charged separately. It was a revolutionary idea at the time, pretty much like Air Madrid only that it was 40 years before and it was done seriously ... There were plans to expand the service to other destinations such as Hong Kong and Australia, but the airline did not manage to survive the 1980 crisis. This timetable was issued right that year, and it included rental car and hotels in London information.
