Those were great days to fly... I flew PanAm a lot, and they were incredibly generous with complimentary upgrades on transoceanic segments for their frequent fliers. Granted, the hard product was not comparable to current lie-flat seats, but service was outstanding and meals were prepared by a chef on the plane and were generally competitive with that in better restaurants.

CSX (otherwise known as Crash, Smash, or Xplode) may run into regulatory issues w/the Pan Am RR purchase as it would create a virtual monopoly in the New England states.

When we missed our LACSA flight, we were put on PAA's flight from SJO-MIA. Later that day, it was announced they had shutdown operations. Truly a sad day.

Some of the finest people one could ever meet flew for Pan Am. Bob Cassidy (Berlin), Kit Sanders (Berlin), Fran Stull (Berlin), Brian C. & Ken M. (JFK) - pioneers - mentors - good people with humility and class!
...So true of this airline....
