Just doing some deep cleaning :)
Another piece of airline trivia
This is Cathay playing cards
Did many other airlines have branded playing cards ? IMG20200330102304.jpg

I've had QF ones sitting in my cricket kit bag for probably 15 years now. They were handy during rain delays and quiet nights on tours. With mobile phones they hardly get used anymore.
The whole deck smells a lot like dencorub now!

My mother loved playing Patience so for many years cards were all over their place. So I suspect that is why mother made sure she picked up the airlines cards

The first pack I laid my hands on was TEAL (Forerunner of AirNZ) cards. They measured an inch across and two down. About late 1960s when I would have been around 10

I also have a Cathay pack that looks to be the same vintage as mrsterryn's. Gets used on the odd occasion when young relatives come to visit and we play a game of Snap!

I have a set from JAL somewhere. They came in handy over the years as a kid when camping, smaller cards for small hands.

I think I will keep these for those games. I have a grandson and will be able to tell him his great grandmother got these just for him :)
