DIEPRESSE.COM – Viel schöner als fliegen

08.05.2015 | 16:35 | Georg Weindl (Die Presse) Air Hollywood ist keine Airline und die Boeing 747 auch nur eine Attrappe. Bei der Pan Am Experience genießen die Passagiere First-Class-Nostalgie der 1970er-Jahre. Nur geflogen wird nicht. Es gab einmal eine Zeit vor gefühlten hundert Jahren, da hatten die Menschen hierzulande etwas, was sich heute keiner mehr vorstellen kann: eine große Leidenschaft fürs Fliegen. Es war die teuerste und luxuriöseste Art, um die Welt zu reisen. Selbst ein Flug von Wien an die Adria hatte etwas Exotisches und verschlang locker ein halbes Monatsgehalt. Die Piloten in ihren dunklen Uniformen und den sportlichen Sonnenbrillen genossen einen Starkult, wie ihn heute nur noch die Fußballer von Real Madrid erreichen. Stewardessen mit ihren eleganten […]

METASCOTT.COM – My Time Traveling Pan Am Experience

JUNE 8, 2015 by Scott Walker “And where are you flying today?” Where, indeed? I’ve just stepped up to the check-in counter for my Pan Am Experience “flight,” and according to Air Hollywood‘s website, I’m about to “relive the magic of flying onboard a luxurious Pan Am 747.” In this case, I’ll be flying on board a specific 747, the Pan Am Clipper Juan T. Trippe, named after the airline’s founder. And the entire trip will happen in a Pacoima, CA warehouse.

NOMASCOACH.COM – THE WORLD’S MOST EXPERIENCED AIRLINE – THE PAN AM EXPERIENCE

May 28, 2015 Just north of Burbank, CA in a sleepy little town called Pacoima stands Air Hollywood, a set full of airplane fuselages, cockpits, and one special hangar, the Pan Am Experience! For the uninitiated, Pan Am was born in 1927 and since its fall in 1991, it has grown to have a following of aficionados and airplane buffs who yearn for a time when airplane travel truly was glamorous and fancy. Air Hollywood started offering the Pan Am experience last year, and has been selling out tickets for every departure within about 15 minutes of their offering. Demand is high, and for good reason.

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

The INDEPENDENT Tim Walker checks in and checks out a four-hour journey with a difference Tim Walker Wednesday, 6 May 2015 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. Yes, nostalgia is in the air – or rather, on the ground – at Air Hollywood, a studio in Los Angeles that specialises in aircraft sets. This is where the famous in-flight scenes from […]
