TWA to the New York World's Fair.
I used to fly often enough that I would get sleepy on the way to the airport thinking about the nap I would get. Now not so much and I just can't get to sleep even on long flights.
First "solo" flight included a very short leg from Indy to Cincinnati they actually took drink orders on the ground to be able to serve them as soon as we reached altitude. Now, many of our flights come through Chicago. The return flight is too short for beverage service.
