Pan Am was a very special and iconic airline. They made flying be a luxury, and they did it well.

25 years ago my dad lost his job with them and pretty much every airline he has worked for has either gone bust or is struggling.

It’s hard to keep airlines running when consumers are only focused on price.

“Now anyone can fly”, is that such a good thing after all?

I was ashamed when Delta bought it, I really hoped that it went into a airline that can atleast continue its reputation

I actually neally cried. My eyes watered up on the last flight. It’s like loosing a family member.

PanAm folded its wings 25 years ago today. Here’s the internal memo that shutdown the original legendary Pan American World Airways forever.
