WASHINGTON — Reagan National Airport’s 75th anniversary celebrations kick into high gear next week, and if you’re traveling through Reagan National next week, you can have a leisurely sit-down meal for $19.41.
Several restaurants at Reagan National are offering a “First Class Meal Deal” for $19.41, a nod to the year 1941, when National Airport opened.
The airport will be marking its 75th anniversary all next week with promotions, giveaways and performances.
On Wednesday, the Flagship Detroit, a restored American Airlines DC-3 will fly into Reagan National. It is the same model as the first airplane that landed at the newly opened airport, an arrival observed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt .
Airlines drew straws to decide who would be the first to land at Reagan National, and American won. (An Eastern Airlines plane was the second to land.)
Below is a list of the $19.41 meals being offered next week by some of the participating restaurants:
