Long before the days of cramped seats, slovenly attire and crappy in-flight food, airplane travel was, well, glamorous. Travelers wore pillbox hats and heels, in-flight food was restaurant-grade and there was no such thing as too much champagne. But don’t take it from us. Experience it for yourself at Air Hollywood’s Pan Am Experience in Los Angeles. Offering monthly dinner parties aboard a replica Pan Am Jumbo Jet from the 1970s, the restaurant serves dinner and cocktails by flight attendants decked out in original 1970s Pan Am uniforms. There’s also an after-dinner movie and the chance to view huge collection of airline memorabilia. A note on your threads: “Guests are expected to dress the part, and dress nicely, just like passengers did in the 1970s,” Rob Shalhoub of Air Hollywood told TravelSkills back in 2014.
