The Pan Am Experience, an amazing fine dining experience onboard a retro Pan Am 747 at Air Hollywood, is one of the hottest tickets in town – First Class tickets already sold out through December. So when Travelzoo rented out the whole plane for a recent member-exclusive event, I was ready to relive the magic of the golden age of flying.
I absolutely loved this ‘flight’ back to the 1970’s and the chance to learn more about this historic airline and the golden age of air travel. After checking in for my flight, I enjoyed a cocktail in the Clipper Club Lounge, viewed vintage Pan Am memorabilia and got the chance to meet a former Pan Am stewardess.
Once the captain and flight crew arrived, we were ready to board! Once I stepped on to the plane I was instantly transported to the mid-70’s with first-class service including a five-course meal, a fashion show with original Pan Am stewardess uniforms, never-ending champagne and cocktails, a fun airline quiz and even a showing of the film “Airplane”. I especially loved the 70’s magazines, hot hand towels and Duty Free shopping.
The hand-carved Chateaubriand was over-the-top delicious and by the time dessert was served I was so caught up in the flight experience that I almost forgot that I wasn’t actually in the air.
To make the night even more memorable, I was able to visit the cockpit and ‘fly’ the plane for a bit. I Love filling my life with travel and experiences like this one with Travelzoo and the Pan Am Experience; access to these exclusive events is just one of the perks of being a Travelzoo member.
I was thrilled to attend this special Pan Am Experience night with Travelzoo and loved having the chance to mix and mingle with Travelzoo members and learn more about the travel and entertainment deals, plus members-only special events, that are offered to their 28 million members.
