Trivia

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 »

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 »

What ABC always did best....
10 October 2011 | by jwrowe3See all my reviews

Good old fashioned "escapist fun". That was ABC's forte back in the day. "Fantasy Island", "Love Boat"...shows like this took you away from your standard drama show. And in some ways "Pan Am" does just that.

No, there's no schlocky comedy or anything along those lines, but you go back to a day and age where flying was glamorous, and there was an air of 'excitement' in faraway places. I'm, just a little too young to recall travel like we see on the show, having been born in 1961... My first flight wasn't until the late 60's and by then jet travel was almost the norm than the exception...and then deregulation came along and flying was more a chore than an event to look forward to.

I agree with another poster who thinks the flight crew is a little young. The "jet boys" tended to be a little older. I recall when the pilots of the planes I flew were all old WWII pilots, all in their late 50's or so when I flew through the 1970's...

Aside from THAT, I have very little to grouse about.

Should this show have really great legs and last a while, it'll be interesting to see where we go as Pan Am's fortunes were at their peak in the 60's, but the decline began as the 70's arrived.

Good show. Good Job, ABC!
