Blast From The Past - When Lagos To New York Round Trip Flight Was N17,000

Posted in: , , , ,
I can't claim to have experienced those good old days, but a lot of older Nigerians enjoyed the largese of a rich, young and vibrant Nigeria, when out Naira had value, and our country was respected around the world.

A friend shared this on Nigeria Airways newspaper advert from the early 80s on FB and a commenter added his own reminiscence -

Them good ol' days. I still remember paying N1,040 as airfare for Nigeria Airways to and fro London from Lagos in 1980 (British Caledonian then was N1, 240). Reminiscence.

do you think inflation accounts for the high price now, more than 10X what it used to be, or the general decline of the economy is to blame? Is Nigeria Airways still working now BTW?

  1. Wow, is this really from the 80s? It looks like it's from the 60s for some reason. Those were the days, though! May Nigeria be restored to her former glory.
