By the time this ad ran in 1941, the Boeing 314 had been in service for two years, and things were doing so well it was time for more Clippers (12)

Years ago, I knew a man who had twice been a passenger on the 314.  Of course it was the most luxurious flight imaginable, but he also said it was much noisier than he expected.  Bumpy too.  Makes sense though: it was unpressurized and had to fly low.
