CONSUMERIST — Recreated Pan Am Plane Transports Guests To 1970s – All For The Price Of Real Airline Ticket

By Ashlee Kieler September 19, 2014 Original Story What if I said you didn’t need a speeding Delorean and 1.21 gigawatts to revisit the past? No, you just need a few hundred dollars and the willingness to spend that money to sit on a movie set and pretend you’re flying in a Pan Am jet from a bygone era. The Pan Am Experience, which is really just a set at aviation-themed film studio Air Hollywood, aims to take guests on a trip back to the 1970s when travelers enjoyed five-star dinners and unlimited cocktails in the lap of luxury – all without actually going airborne.

GIZMODO — For $300, You Can “Fly” on a Perfectly Recreated Pan Am 747

By Kelsey Campbell-Dollaghan September 18, 2014 Original Story Pan Am ceased to exist 23 years ago, but the defunct airline enjoys a dedicated cult following—whose fixation with the past that doesn’t seem quite so odd when considered in light of the stinky, knee-obsessed, genital-groping present of air travel. Now, for roughly what it costs to fly to Ft. Lauderdale, you can turn back the clock. Air Hollywood is a company in LA that specializes in movie sets for airplane footage—this is where, for example, airborne scenes in Bridesmaids and The Wolf of Wall Street were filmed.
