Air France poster, 1936

Again featuring a trimotor.  The 1h 30 min flight time has been shortened since then, but allowing for the time it takes to get to the airport, check in, wait, fetch your luggage at the other end and get in to the city, it is probably just as quick if not quicker, to take the Eurostar fast train which, following the opening of the dedicated track in Kent, now takes 2 hrs 15 min from La Gare du Nord to St Pancras.
