Ok, since the subject of Pan American has been on the boards for a while, I've thought of something........Pan Am should buy out a major u.s airline and return to immediate greatness. What would some candidates be if this ever happened? I have a few ideAAs, but what do ya'll think?
Sorry I moved from SXM, looking for a new house on Anguilla now!

Well, I am not really impressed (at all) with the new Pan Am, (even though they fky out of Sanford/ Orlando, which is about 10 minutes from my house)...Anyways...I think the "new" PanAm should just drop their current routes and buy out a small and still growing airline with a good hub city...Vanguard Airlines, Spirit, or even Pro Air??? Then once they have established a real hub and have settled down they can start slowly expanding. Nobody really knows about them...Here in Orlando where they have the majority of flights, they dont use any means of advertising...at all!!! They need to get aggressive get their name out there. Now all they have to do is inherit a large sum of money to do all of this!!!! I just dont see any future for the current PanAm. Hopefully they can get their act together!

-This is a no brainer. The market cap of any US major airline is quite obviously far more than any startup could possibly dream of acquiring.
-What would be the point? Ok, lets go to tremendous trouble, expense, and pain so that we can change a name for no apparent reason, except to satisfy some aviation enthusiast kid's wish to photograph "Clippers"
-Pan Am is dead. THe new PA is not the REAL Pan Am, it just shares the name. It cannot regain glory, it is gone forever. Even if the new PA acquired your suggestion, AA, the airline would still be American, only with blue and white colors. Employess, attitudes, and corporate culture would not change.
I dont mean to offend anybody, but these posts are a waste of time. What is the point of asking a question that requires only common sense to answer? I am getting tired of having to weed through all of the strings that appear to be more the result of boredom than of true curiosity. Dont get me wrong, uninforrmed questions are fine, nobody knows everything, but this is pushing it.

No, I agree with the original post, they should buy out a bigger airline, with a better infrastructure than Pan Am currently have, but won't clash with their own huge network, someone like BA, or Quantas, maybe SIA, I'm thinking........it's that easy, hell I'd do it myself tomorrow, given the time.....heh heh

If you are tired of looking through all the posts and you obviously have a negative attitude, DONT REPLY. Oh, By the way...I am not a KID...I am an adult, but since when did this forum have an age limit??--just wondering!--Last time I checked it was open to everyone????? > Forum-n.-any place or institution where where questions of public concern can be discussed or decided.

First of all, I do not have a negative attitude, I am extremely objective.
Second of all, no one made any mention about your age or an age limit. Only you. Insecure?
Finally, this forum is for educated discussion and learning about airlines, airplanes, and the aviation industry. Lets be honest, do you really think your question/proposal is remotely
c)even a possibility?
Of course not.
-I tend to live by the rule "Dont ask a question you can answer yourself." Try it out. I really wonder what you hoped to accomplish in this thread.
-Please don't become agitated in your responses, your mood is quite apparent and unnecessary.

Pan Am is said to be looking at St. Louis' Midamerica airport to fly into as well as Newark and san Juan. They said in their newsletter @ their ticket counters (here in orlando) that they are targeting airports with no parking fees, easy access, and that are convienant!
