By the late 1930s, with the introduction of the Douglas DST (Douglas Sleeper Transport) and DC-3 Mainliners, United Air Lines provided standardized beverage service. Coffee was stored in thermos-type dispensers in the galley and served in plastic cups with saucers, while hot and cold water was available from lavatory dispensers for drinking and washing. See "Flying the Main Line: A History of United Airlines", on display, post-security, in Terminal 3. http://bit.ly/TheMainLine Image: United Air Lines stewardesses prepare to serve coffee in the Douglas DC-3 gallery, late 1936.
