Im sure you guys know of the Pan Am that operates out of Sanford Florida. Do you think that they will be replacing their 727's any time soon? Arent these aircraft very expensive to operate? What aircraft do you think they will replace the 727's with when they do?

I don't think they'll do anything with the 727s anytime soon. They bought a whole @ss load of -222s from United for spares and to increase their fleet.


Caution wake turbulence, you are following a heavy jet.

They'll replace the 727's with Chapter 11's.

The 722's they purchased from UA are fairly late model aicraft built in the 1979 to 1981 timeframe, give or take a year or so. They still have life left in them, especially with the new winglets and engine modifications meant to decrease fuel burn. Besides, why would anybody want to see them replace the 727's? The U.S airline industry has seen a good chunk of its 727 fleet sent out to retirement. Like the venerable Northwest DC-9's, might as well hold on to them as long as we can. You know they'll be missed the day they exit the fleet.

Pan Am is BASED out of PSM in New Hampshire. Not Sanford in Florida.

Anyway I don't think they will need a plane to replace the 722's I think at least another 3 or 4 years min. until they get a replacement. And if they do maybe the 738 or 739??

Who cares about status?

I just can't believe they're still around. I remember when they used to fly into Chicago/Gary. Does anyone know how their flow of passengers is?

I don't know exactly how PAN AM is doing, but there are about 4 or 5 ex United 727's sitting on the ramp at Sanford, at least one of which is being completely parted out. Also on an average day there are about 3 or 4 PAN AM 727's sitting on the ramp as well. I have no idea how big their total fleet is though.

One thing is for sure, between PAN AM and Transmeridian Airlines both flying 727's out of Sanford, if you like to see 727's you should come visit since we get more of those in and out of here than any other airliner I think. They are so beautiful when they takeoff towards you by the way.

Pan Am would be a good airline to order the 717's
