We always kick ourselves later for things we threw away that are valuable now, huh? I used to have the soundtrack to Thank God It's Friday on two 8-track tapes...can't imagine how much that would go for on eBay now, just based on kitsch value!!
Same with a 1984 PanAm timetable I used to have...and I hate to admit it, but tore out the route map (with all the lines) and had it pinned up on my wall. Threw the rest out at some point...SO wish I hadn't, but I remember some of the more exotic routes - if I remember correctly, there was a JFK
, a three or four stop route across West Africa terminating at Nairobi (as well as a one-stop from JFK
). Asia, the Pacific, Australia/New Zealand, South/Central America, as well as their legendary service to Europe...it was all there!!
Since 1986 was when Pan Am sold the pacific routes to United, I think this might have been one of the last truly global timetables. I miss Pan Am SO much and that whole glamourous era...
