In the late 1960's, airline traffic was increasing rapidly and predicted to overwhelm airlines. Airports were getting gridlocked. (Sound familiar?). The wide-body jets, first introduced with the 747, were hailed as the answer to everything. Airlines fell over themselves to order the 747, then the DC-10 and L-1011.
