Back in the 60's my friend worked for a company that was American Airlines largest single customer by far. He and his boss had missed an evening flight home and were stuck for the night.

His boss picked up the phone, made some loud noises and within an hour, a plane was pulled up! They got on as the only passengers and were flown back home. AA actually brought in a plane special for them.

I trust my friend's story; he never embellished or stretched facts. Of course this was the 60's and things were quite different.
