What European routes did Pan Am serve?

Pan Am's major US gateway to Europe was JFK Airport in New York. The airline operated nonstop services to
London Heathrow (3 daily) until it sold them to United
for around $300 million in 1991. Pan Am also flew non-
stop to Paris, Milan, Rome, Madrid, Amsterdam, Nice,
Berlin, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Frankfurt, Brussels, Oslo,
Stockholm, Helsinki, Shannon, Dublin, Lisbon, Zurich,
Moscow, and Vienna. It also operated via Frankfurt,
to St. Petersburg, Prague, Budapest, Bucharest,
Bombay, Karachi, Zagreb, Warsaw, and probably a
few other East European cities I am now not really
sure of. The airline operated 747-100's and A310-
200/300ER's across the Atlantic.

Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco were other
US gateways, as well as Detroit (for a short while,
Pan Am operated CLE-DTW-LHR services with an
A310). Frankfurt became Pan Am's European hub
airport, even before the airline sold off its London
routes although from Heathrow it also had quite
a few connections to Amsterdam, Brussels, and
Frankfurt.

Despite its financial condition and sad state of
business affairs, Pan Am provided a good over-
all service to Europe from New York right until
the routes were sold to Delta. The cabin crew
were friendly and proud of their company's rich
history and tradition as America's flagship airline.

Alas no. They did not serve MAN. I guess demand was not sufficient to warrant it because at the time, Pan
Am would have been the first one in. They operated
many flights to secondary cities (not to diminish the
importance of Manchester) but they did fly to many
other destinations that were not necessarily capital
cities.

An A310-300ER service from JFK to MAN would have
been awesome. Too bad.
