I guess with COVID-19 there are not going to be many trip reports in the near future.

I don't know if people are interested or not, but here are some videos (not mine) that show what departed flights from the 1980s were like.

Eastern Airlines DC9 MCO-ORD 1983

Pan Am 747 LHR-LAX 1986

TWA L1011 LGA-MCO 1991

I don't think I'm breaking any rules by sharing, hope others enjoy until we can get some new trip reports :smile:

I did not like flying Pan Am. But it was easy to get free tickets with miles.

1. "Trump Shuttle. What a joke!" in TW video.
2. Top Gun as one of the movies on PA
3. Enjoyed seeing more diverse array of aircraft.

Thanks for posting.... I've seen the EA video before but not the PA or TW ones.

Sigh... What I would give to just take a last ride on each of the videos!

Ah the Trump Shuttle....if only a failed business that it was, could talk. Great video on the Pan Am 747 from LHR to LAX (PA 121). Pan Am was an awful airline in its final years of service.

I guess in 1991, no one at TWA thought about washing their planes. Sheesh!
