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 »

Pan Am
26 September 2011 | by mikelang330See all my reviews

Well written script - the intrigue is great. Nice job of weaving the stories together. Good to see all involved in creation of this series understand the airline industry. Frankly, was not expecting such a high degree of detail and accuracy as few people understand the industry. It looks simple from the outside but is full of deep and highly complex issues. What you saw was true. Lots of emotional drama in the airline industry draw from. Would occasionally like to see some of the serious side too. If the remainder of the series is as good as the first it will be a winner. Thanks for wonderful entertainment - look forward to next Sunday night.
