Back in the U.S.S.R.

Last October, we gathered a group of experts together to find out what U.S. air travel will look like ten years from now.

If you want to remember what air travel looked like twenty years ago, try booking a flight to Russia on American Airlines’s website, which appears to give you the option of flying to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (and Yugoslavia, too, for good measure).

How many other extinct countries are still on this list? And what about newborn countries — like Kosovo — that don’t appear at all?
