Pan-Am Flight 001
On Easter we visited my aunt, who used to be a flight attendant for Pan Am back in the 60s and 70s. She brought out some of her mementos she saved and an album of photos from a trip she took with my grandparents and my uncle, who was her fiance back then. They took Flight 001, the famous around-the-world flight which had stops in places like Hong Kong and Paris.

My cousin told me that ABC filmed a pilot called Pan Am which is a Mad-Men-esque show about Pan Am flight attendants in the 60s, the heyday of “coffee, tea, or me?” Hopefully it will get picked up. Here’s a classic commercial and a clip from Catch Me If You Can showing that time.
