Ladies and Gentleman--

Pan Am is baaaack!!! Geez.. Pan Am is the Resputin of the airlines. It just refuses to die.

Pan Am will operate 1 flight a day from Portsmouth, NH to Orlando starting October 7.

I hope it gets off the ground. I would love to Clipper regain it's former glory.

I for one am rather sceptical about this new Pan Am's ability to regain the original PAs glory. But I sure do hope it makes it! Good luck Pan Am and welcome back!  

I've flown on 9V-SPK.

If the *new* Pan Am has good management and a game plan for making money, then I don't see why it can't. It already has a good name and history behind it (barring PA103).

I hope it can make it through. Their site looks like it was cheaply made.

Who nows if all goes right (and that is a BIG IF) maybe one day I'll be the captain on a veteran 747-500 or 777-200 winging its way across the Atlantic to Heathrow for them!

I too am kind of skeptical, but you know, they have a decent little fbo/maintenance at pease...and they are making money w/ the charters. The 1996 version of PA screwed up by starting off w/ A300's and flying JFK-MIA/LAX......not too wise. 727's w/ 150 pass. are the perfect size plane. PSM might not be a very large city, but it taps into BOS, which is only 50 miles away. Is Pan Am pulling a Southwest tactic? Avoid the large cities, but fly into a city near a large city? It could work out very well for them. And flying into Sanford is good as well......no chance for delays, no huge check in lines, and its not that much farther to disney and other attractions then MCO is. Go Pan Am......."The World's Most Experienced Airline" will regain its glory one day!!!!!

I live in Orlando and about 20 minutes away from the Orlando/Sanford airport, which is where Pan Am is operating out of, please remember this is not the Orlando International Airport it is a small holiday charter airport, where Monarch, AirTours, and Air 2000 fly into. Recently i got to meet all thier employees at their maintenance faciltity at Sanford and they gave me a complete tour in and out of their 727, it is all economy, very very nice inside, completely renovated, they seats are OK their isnt enough leg-room. I personally find that it will be hard to make $ from Portsmouth, NH which is their supposed "connection" to New England, although it is a whole 2 hours away from Boston! Portsmouths' airport only has 1, yes i said 1 gate, sanford has 5, which are only for international aircraft. Domestic has walk-out gates.
