A 1963 commercial airmail cover from a petroleum equipment supplier in Libya with what I call a "partial" airmail designation on the envelope. That is, there is no airmail designation along the edges of the cover, but with just a small area having a design that indicates airmail service, in this case a DC-8 type aircraft and a Via Air Mail.

This one I found very interesting, especially the back cancels. Also a nice etiquette is used.

Laurie 02:
https://www.thisdayinaviation.com/28-april-1937/

28 April 1937: The first transpacific flight by a commercial passenger airliner is completed when Pan American Airways' Martin M-130, China Clipper, arrived at Hong Kong. The flight had departed San Francisco Bay, California, on 21 April with 7 revenue passengers and then proceeded across the Pacific Ocean by way of Hawaii, Midway Island, Wake Island, Guam, Manila, Macau, and finally Hong Kong.

Oooh thanks perf12, I did not realise this was another clipper cover, I'll add it to my other clipper covers.
I have 2 from New Caledonia I can put up later and a Sunderland first flight too.

Nice Canadian covers Laura2! I especially like the border on the Clipper cover to Hong Kong.

Here is a philatelic cover out of Costa Rica with a Pan Am Airways etiquette and airmail service designation of a single red line trailing a jet aircraft.
