FIZ-X — Pan Am Experience Will Take You To The Olden Days

Original Story

For a $300 ticket you can experience Pan Am first-class with cocktails, dining and hat-wearing
stewardesses.
You have an opportunity to spend $300 on a ticket for an airplane that never takes off. What you’re paying for is time travel back to the go-go days of Pan American World Airways in the 1970s. The airline famously went bust in 1991, but not before setting the standard for polyester-era travel luxury.
Air Hollywood, an aviation-themed film studio, is now offering the Pan Am Experience, an immersive
jaunt back to a world where orange was a fashionable color and in-flight menus featured items like
chicken in wine sauce, grilled filet mignon, and cognac.
The experience takes place in a re-creation of a Pan Am 747, complete with first-class and
clipper-class cabin seats. You’ll be treated to cocktails, dinner, and video and audio selections
suited to the time period. “Everything from the china to the glassware is authentic with careful
attention to the exquisite service delivery of the era and menu offerings of Pan Am,” Air Hollywood promises. The flight attendants are all decked out in original uniforms, complete with gold buttons,wide collars, and weird beige and blue colors.
The next date is October 18. A first-class ticket costs $297, while a clipper-class ticket will cost you $197.
This will be the best $300 you ever spend. The experience is brilliant and give you a flavor of hippy era with a hint of gorgeous colors.
