BREAKING NEWS: Is Pan-Am Relaunching?!
Pan American World Airways, aka Pan Am, was the largest carrier in the United States until its demise in December 1991.
Many people think Pan Am relates back to a better time when flying used to be prestigious and cherished experience. So much so in fact that in Los Angeles they’ve created a “Pan Am Experience” where you can relive the best of Pan Am. A glamorous, exciting time in flying’s golden age, that has since been replaced by screaming kids, long TSA lines, packaged peanuts, and grim stares from well-weathered flight attendants. We did the experience back last year, and it was EPIC.

Pan Am still exists today, by selling a very diverse line of bags, passport cases, clothing, and accessories, all helping us remember the awesome brand that is no more…
Ben was just strolling around the Internet today and stumbled across Pan Am’s website… Well, in what I hope is a sign of things to come, if you head over to the website today, you’ll see something very interesting.
WHAT? SERIOUSLY? NO … This would be amazing. Pan Am resurgence?! It looks like they’ll be offering concierge services, business travel, empty legs (private jets!?), and more! I called the number listed and prodded for some more information. It looks like they’ll be launching in a few months, starting from the Midwest/Mountain area and then heading to the coasts. They want to start with smaller jets and expand service into jets that can seat 20, 30, and even up to 100 people. I tried to get a little bit more, but he said that we’ll just have to wait until later in the fall when they get over their “soft” launch. DRATS!
I, for one, could not be more excited to see what this means. The only tag line is “Coming This Fall” and “Booking Options Coming Soon,” so we’ll have to wait and see what this means. Stay tuned to NoMasCoach via twitter and facebook, and when we know more we’ll update you.
