THE INDEPENDENT — The Pan Am Experience is a ‘flight’ back to the 1970s that never takes off-at least not literally

By Tim Walker May 6, 2015 Original Story Tim Walker checks in and checks out a four-hour journey with a difference. The flight is on time, the seats are capacious, the drinks are free and plentiful. The stewardesses are beautiful and beautifully dressed. The in-flight meal is a perfectly pink-centred chateaubriand. This probably doesn’t sound like any commercial flight you’ve ever been on – or, at least, not in the past 35 years. That’s because the Pan Am Experience is a first-class trip to the 1970s.

Every other Saturday night, customers line up outside a warehouse in Pacoima to relive a nostalgic experience. As a small boy, said Anthony Toth, “I started collecting airplane models, and small things like timetables and luggage tags.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA LIFE MAGAZINE — Come Fly With Me – A Retro Air Experience That Harkens Back to Aviation’s Golden Era

By Erika Thomas March/April 2015 Original Story Take one part aviation geek, one part Hollywood production, combine them with chateaubriand and manhattans served up by stewardesses decked out in powder blue uniforms and you’ve got the Pan Am Experience. “I became obsessed with aviation at a very young age. I took my first Pan Am flight in 1971 at four years old, going from J.F.K. to Zurich. The minute I walked on board and saw the giant winding staircase, red carpet and two beautiful girls in matching outfits, that was it,” says Anthony Toth, Founder and CEO of Pan Am Experience. “Before I could really put it into words, the glamour of the Pan Am brand had resonated with me, […]
