Re: Pan Am 707 cabin in color?

Pan Am never upgraded their 707s or 727-21s to the wide body look.In the USA American Airlines did their 707 fleet and someone told me Western upgraded their Boeing 707-347Cs.Pan Am,TWA and Nothwest orient did not.I am assuming Braniff and Continental did not as their 707s were retired before 1975.
