My angel. Flung out of space.
There were very few direct flights in the 1950s and most were within states or to neighboring states. Direct flights between major cities only really came into vogue in the 1970s when commercial plane technology had improved and fewer stops were required, Additionally, few airlines could have afford direct flights as commercial air travel really only became widespread and popular in the mid to late 1960s.
So a flight from Chicago to New York would have almost certainly consisted of one to as many as three stops before arriving.
While flight crew service hour limits prohibited coast to coast non-stops, NY to Chicago non-stop was available in this era. A copy of a 1951 American Airlines schedule shows six non-stop flights daily from New York to Chicago, using the DC-6. American's longest non-stops that year were between New York and Dallas. TWA would have been competing on the NYC-Chicago, using Lockheed Constellation aircraft, but I don't have a contemporary schedule. TWA was flying NYC-Chicago non-stop as early as 1948, using much slower DC-4 aircraft, per a schedule from that year. This was TWA's longest non-stop in their short DC-4 era.
