X: An Airship's Passengers
A zeppelin is traveling across the Atlantic to Boston and is three days into it's voyage.
The men and women are very happy to be riding on one of the first commercially safe airships of their time. The passengers are very wealthy to be in their seats, with their fine suits and elegant dress-gowns tailored to impress the other members of their flight.
