Did You Know?


Despite all the exotic destinations featured on the show, principal shooting is done on a back lot in Brooklyn, and other shots are done around New York City. (For example, London hotel scenes are shot in a mansion on Long Island, and some scenes in Italy have been shot in Manhattan.) See more »


For the entire series, they refer to the head of Pan Am as "Juan Trippe." Juan Terry Trippe was named after a maiden aunt named Juanita Terry, and he positively loathed the name Juan. Everyone called him Terry, Terry Trippe, or simply Mr. Trippe, under fear of being fired, killed, or worse. See more »

I really enjoyed the show
26 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

It is in a way a soap, so there is going to be multiple story lines, but if you have even half a decent attention span this will be no problem. It is a history lesson of how things were not so long ago and shows how women had to put up with crap just to do their jobs. But, for me it is a thrill of an era that opened doors.

When the jets became part of commercial flying the world changed. It was exciting! Being able to go to another country in a matter of hours. Meeting and seeing people from foreign countries you would never imagine getting to do.

As for the pilots being too young, that is true. Especially handling the new jets. I just ignored that.

The music is great. The period clothes are on the money. The pride of being a stewardess (that is what they were called then) was right on. The first episode was very enjoyable and I hope that it continues and has great success.
