I haven't been to A.net in quite some time now and the first thing I went to search was for any news regarding HVN and I stumbled upon this tastey vittle. I was quite skeptical about this news until I went to the airport website, http://www.flytweed.com, and see for myself. I am actually a bit surprised that PA Clipper Connection wants to commence service out of my hometown. I can see the sense in having the service HVN-BWI and HVN-BED, but I don't see the reason to have a HVN-ELM. Surely, Pan Am has there reasons to begin this market and perhaps they feel they should have a test run.
I kinda miss having DL for that matter, for I thought they were doing well. Maybe, if the service to BWI is successful it may bring in interest from WN.

Quoting FlyAAS80 (Reply 7): I saw one of the pseudo Pan Am 727's on short final into ORD last week.
Wow, I didn't know PA was operating out of ORD. Was it a charter? If it's scheduled service, where to?
Quoting Mush (Reply 10): The new Pan Am is nothing like her glorious predecessor.
Ain't it the truth.
Quoting PanAmOldDC8 (Reply 9): Hope they don't screw up the name, I worked for them and was damned proud of it
I think even casual travelers who flew back in the old Pan Am's glory days know the new incarnation is fake. Isn't this the 2nd Pan Am rip-off since the original ceased operations in '91? I remember another reincarnation of the name in the late '90s with a couple of old A300's.
Quoting N1120A (Reply 13): They screwed up that name the moment they bought it.
It is what it is. But even still, the service can't be worse than any other legacy carrier nowadays. I for one am just happy someone is still flying 727's.
