Trivia: Airlines smoking edition.

I'm relatively young, so I have no recollection of being on an airline flight that allowed smoking. But I know that through the 1980s, smoking on planes was fairly common. 

I find this shocking, and I can only imagine how bad it was. 

Anyways, I was talking with an airline executive last week, and he proudly mentioned the fact that his carrier was the first scheduled airline to ban smoking on flights between North American and Europe. 

Do you know which airline this is? And for good measure, do you know the year?

Leave your guesses in the comments section. Among the correct guesses, I'll randomly selection one winner and send you this week's prize -- a snazzy Frontier Airlines lanyard. 

Good luck! And no cheating!
