Trivia

The average career for a Pan Am Stewardess in the 1960's averaged around 18 months due to the strict weight, age, marital status and childlessness requirements. Pan Am required its stewardesses to be at least five foot two and weigh no more than 130 pounds. They also couldn't be married or have children. On top of that the mandatory retirement age for flight attendants was 32. At 5'1", Christina Ricci would have been too short to have been accepted, and at 31, would only have had a few months as a stewardess until she would have hit the mandatory retirement age.

Goofs

For the entire series, they refer to the head of Pan Am as "Juan Trippe." Juan Terry Trippe was named after a maiden aunt named Juanita Terry, and he positively loathed the name Juan. Everyone called him Terry, Terry Trippe, or simply Mr. Trippe, under fear of being fired, killed, or worse. See more »

A nice first voyage!

You know you are watching a good show when afterward you can't stop thinking about it. I can't get it out of my mind for a variety of reasons....First of all, I was very impressed with the quality of the costumes. I don't know much about the 60s but the outfits everyone wore looked pretty authentic. The music went well and set the mood well! The props matched the outfits and made me believe I was back in that time period! I also believe the actors and actresses worked very well together and had great chemistry! Does it have flaws? Sure..what first episode is completely 100% perfect? It had some good twists and I can't wait to get to know the characters better. True some of the characters don't have much of a background yet...but they touched on a few....I'm definitely going to keep watching!!!!
