Pan Am flew the 747-200 Between Asia and Europe to and from the US. I flew on a 747-200 from JFK-LHR in 1989 and LHR-IGA in 1988. everytime that I flew Pan Am in the late 80s it was either a 747-100,747-200, A300 and A310.

PA had nearly 40 747s at their maximum. They were flown to and from Europe until the North Atlantinc routes were replaced with the A310s. They were used on the round the world flights (flt 1 & 2). They were also usedo on South American flights out of MIA and JFK. 747s and 747SP were used on the Pacific routes along with the L1011-500 until the Pacific routes were sold to United. FRA routes were numbered 72,74, and 76 to JFK depending upon the season and number of flights offered.

Having worked for Pan Am at the time I can assure you we did not operate the 727-100 in the mid 80's or beyond.

Our fleet was

As far as FRA to JFK there were depending on the time of year 3 - 4 daily flights.

Some of the flight numbers

There were also FRA-LHR-JFK-DTW / DTW - JFK - LHR - FRA runs

as well as many daily flights between LHR-FRA / HAM-FRA / TXL-FRA and more

Pan Am Express operated DHC-7 ATR-42 J31 and J41 aircraft They were based at JFK/LAX/TXL/FRA

Crew bases from Pan Am were BOS/JFK/LAX/SFO/MIA/WAS/LHR/WAW/TXL/FRA
Crew bases for Pan Am Express were

Hope this helps

Also size of the fleet in 1989 was 189 active aircraft

Is that right that Pan Am crew base was in Warsaw?
I know that Pan Am had one dayli flight from WAW to JFK on DC-8 Super 62.
(My mother was on that plane and she didnt take safety card for me   )
