I’m old enough to remember “grownups” who flew on PanAm in the 50s, and later on, friends and other contemporaries who flew PanAm from the 60s up til they died.
PanAm killed itself. I think you will find that many who sing its praises never actually flew them, or, if they did, it was in first class. Anywhere else on the plane, the impression was “you’re a nuisance”, or “What are YOU doing on OUR airplane?”.Cabins were often shabby or dirty.
When PanAm could no longer buy enough politicians to keep their monopoly, the competeition tore them to pieces.
Not true I flew Pan Am several times in coach and never got this impression.
