Trivia

The average career for a Pan Am Stewardess in the 1960's averaged around 18 months due to the strict weight, age, marital status and childlessness requirements. Pan Am required its stewardesses to be at least five foot two and weigh no more than 130 pounds. They also couldn't be married or have children. On top of that the mandatory retirement age for flight attendants was 32. At 5'1", Christina Ricci would have been too short to have been accepted, and at 31, would only have had a few months as a stewardess until she would have hit the mandatory retirement age.

Goofs

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 liked it!

Four Beautiful women, Great setting, My GF loved it. The show brings back a wonderful era when people had class and self-respect.

Yes, the pilots seemed sort of too young, almost like they had to land the plane quick to catch 7th period geography class. A Grizzled ex-navy pilot from the Korean war with a young, fresh co-pilot would have been better but whatever i guess.

Show seemed fresh, fun, and adding cold war intrigue to make it even more interesting. I can't wait for the disaster episode. You know, when the plane loses 2 engines in a storm half-way across the Atlantic. I'll watch again next week. Let's see what happens.....

Oh yea, did i mention the girls are super hot? They HAD to be back then.
