The backdrop is an unknown relaxed terminal, with arrivals and destinations boards featuring to the left of the screen.
The chilled soundtrack adds to the relaxed atmosphere for the player.
The graphics also try to replicate that golden era.

Frequent Flyer Bonus Features and Free Spins
Free spins can be activated in two ways on Frequent Flyer. First off, Jetsetter Free Spins occur when five flaps are hit on the reel, provided they spell out one of the cities on the information boards. The player is rewarded with three free spins and between two and ten shuffling wilds, or alternatively a multiplier which can range between x2 and x6.
If you land a +3 icon when you land a city, an additional three spins are allocated.
Every time you spell out a city, your passport is stamped and this appears next to the city on the board. Once you have stamped off each city, you enter Frequent Flyer mode for more free spins. There are four options to choose from here, with different rewards.
These are as follows:
• Unpack Relax - here you will receive five free spins, three wilds and a x3 multiplier.
• Skytours - Six Wilds, a x2 Multiplier and 3 free spins are available here
• Travel Gurus - this provides a x6 multiplier, just one wild and five free spins.
• Tour It - this gamble option means you can win a multiplier of between x2-x6, 1-10 wilds and anything between 4-20 free spins.
• When the Frequent Flyer round has been played, passport stamps need to be collected again as the game resets.
The final bonus is Final Call which appears randomly. This adds two flap symbols at the beginning of a spin, enhancing the chance of hitting the required five to spell out a city.
Frequent Flyer Verdict
The layout and features of this game add elements of fun which are key to enjoying this game, and there is lots of action to keep the player entertained, especially the flickering boards spelling out city destinations.
This is one of the more relaxing pokies to play and collecting passport stamps keeps players engaged, as winning lines continue to appear.
There are, however, some aspects of this pokie which are frustrating.
The absence of a genuine bonus game is a drawback. Also, the excitement of getting five flicker boards is diluted when they reveal the name of a city you have already collected.
Finally, the number of paylines does not really reach what you might expect from the size of the grid.
