This is for you people that have flown pan Am #1. The one that flew all over europe......
How would you rate their in-flight service? Was it different in USA then it was in Europe? Did Pan Am ever fly to Canada? were they comfortable in terms of seat pitch? Also, if they would still be around,
Do you think they would opperate the A320 Family?

I have been told from people that flew the old Pan Am that their service was inconsistant- sometimes good sometimes bad, towards the end of their life mostly bad. As far as I know they never flew to Canada.

The service in the US was just like everybody elses. The seat pitch was the same and the food was pretty much the same. I never flew them to Europe so I don't know how it was over there. I don't remember them ever going to Canada either. If they did, it probably would've been to Vancouver from Alaska or Hawaii many many years ago. It's so hard to say what type of planes they'd have. I mean if they magically had an investor on the last day who would give them a lot of money it's hard to tell what planes they would've chosen. I do know they had the A320 on order so I'd say that they probably woudl have taken it again to replace 727-200's.

Actually, I strongly believe Pan American World Airways did fly in Canada (2 cities). However, it wasn't in YYZ, nor YVR nor YUL. From what I read, the Clippers were often stopping at Gander, Newfoundland on their trans-Atlantic routes. They also stopped at Whitehorse, Yukon, for their routes in Alaska.
But no "real" routes in Canada.

My flights on PA were in the 60s and 70s where I flew to Europe and back, the Caribbean, and from Brazil. I realize that the etiquette of flying was a lot different then than it is now. The in-flight service was good and also the food. I can only remember one flight that I would have had a complaint about and that was a 707 from CPH to JFk that made an unscheduled stop in Montreal. There was no pre-flight seat selection and the flight was full. It made for a few grumpy passengers.
