Air Hollywood in Los Angeles has made it possible for anyone to experience what it was like to fly with Pan American World Airways in the 70’s.
Passengers have the experience of immersing themselves in the glamorous
world of air-travel introduced by the pioneer airline Pan Am whose routes
spanned 6 continents and more than 80 countries. Authentic uniforms, airline
seats, vintage Pan Am memorabilia, 70’s music and magazines create a
theatrical atmosphere inside an exact replica of a Pan Am Boeing 747.
The Pan Am Experience begins at check-in desk where a Pan Am customer
service agent provides each passenger with a 70’s style boarding pass, ticket
jacket and first class carry-on tags. Once passengers enter the aircraft (which
is stationary throughout the experience), they are transported back in
time. The interiors of each cabin have all been uniquely restored to Pan Am’s
original cabin décor and branding elements and the stewardesses have been
trained in classic “Pan Am style”.
Before “take off”, the crew performs an in-flight safety demonstration followed
by a brief welcoming message from the flight deck and then a memorable
gourmet four-course meal begins. Main Deck passengers will sit back in plush
Sleeperette seats and relax in a quiet, intimate dining setting while Upper Deck
passengers will climb the winding staircase and enjoy a dynamic social
atmosphere. Everything from the china to the glassware is authentic with
careful attention to the service delivery of the era and menu offerings of Pan
Following dinner, Pan Am stewardess offer period specific video selections
while you sit back and relax with a cocktail. At the end of the experience, all
passengers can have a tour of the various production sets at Air Hollywood,
including the original cockpit from cult classic Airplane! as well as sets and
props used in major motion pictures such as Bridesmaids, The Wolf of Wall
Street, and the hit television show Lost.
What a way to dine!
