Never had the chance to fly Pan Am? Well, for $297 you can get a ride in their first class cabin… sort of.
Here’s how it’s described:
From its birth in 1927, Pan American Airways was the pioneer airline whose routes spanned 6 continents and more than 80 countries. Almost a century later, the name Pan Am is still a very powerful brand, and inside this Southern California motion picture studio sits an exact replica of the airline’s Boeing 747 and everything that made it so special.Your Pan Am experience starts on the main deck with a cocktail and beverage service in the First Class cabin. Each stewardess that greets you will be adorned in her original 1970’s Pan Am uniform. Our Pan Am crew will offer various video & audio selections while you sit back in your Pan Am Sleeperette seat and sip a cocktail.
Soon after, you’ll climb the winding staircase where the crew will set your table for a truly memorable dining event. In classic Pan Am style, you’ll be offered your favorite cocktail and served a delightful gourmet meal. Everything from the china to the glassware is authentic with careful attention to the exquisite service delivery of the era and menu offerings of Pan Am.
After dinner, you will have an opportunity to view the vast collection of airline memorabilia and view other film production sets.
For the first time since Pan Am ceased operations, you can now relive the magic of this golden era in travel. We cordially invite you to personally experience this unique “flying” opportunity in the tradition of Pan Am.
This will be taking place three times in their Los Angeles studio over the coming months:
- October 18, 2014, 6:30-10:30PM PT
- November 1, 2014, 6:30-10:30PM PT
- December 6, 2014, 6:30-10:30PM PT
There are two types of tickets available:
First Class — $297
First Class Cabin Seat for cocktails and movie and access to Upper Deck Dining Room for dinner.
Clipper Class — $197
Clipper Class Cabin Seat for cocktails, dinner, and movie. Access to Upper Deck Dining Room for viewing but only prior to and after dinner service.
They better be serving caviar, chateaubriand, and Krug for those prices. 😉
I’m incredibly tempted to do one of these. Anyone else up for chartering a Pan Am “flight?”
