Nostalgic Pan Am stewardess photos (and more)

Posted

September 30, 2011

Many flight attendants like myself are excited about the new show "Pan Am" that premiered this past Sunday on ABC. It's fun to see how much air travel has changed the past several decades, with everything these days being much more casual.

That said, I see on planes how passengers still enjoy being pampered like they were back in the day. That's what motivated me to start making the PamBee travel blanket set: to help bring back a little bit of the style and luxury from those Pan Am days while providing what they need to get some restful sleep.

My friend Joanne was a Pan Am stewardess during it's heyday, and she was kind enough to let me post some of the photos she has collected over the years. Thanks Joanne!

Love this photo of a flight attendant in the engine! Obviously these days
this isn't allowed because of stricter security!
