Continental Airlines, Now Featuring Electronic Pub Pong: Retro Video

I spent part of this morning online searching for additional Vintage Airline Seat Maps to add to my collection, and I came across this video montage of Continental Airlines TV commercials from the 1970s and 1980s.

It’s a pretty amusing look back, and a couple of them highlight Continental’s DC-10s with both a first class lounge and pub in coach, the latter of which included a video pong console. Yes… this pong:

I love the theatrics of some of the commercials, too… enjoy!
