You are right, the Euro was much later. But the European currencies prior to the Euro, like the pound were very high too. (I did travel with my brothers and parents after 2002 actually. But no longer on the free ticket.) And no, even with the free tickets, it was always economy. My father wasnt senior enough to get us business or first class. But it was still a very good perk, even travelling in economy.
