Those were great days to fly... I flew PanAm a lot, and they were incredibly generous with complimentary upgrades on transoceanic segments for their frequent fliers.

It would be cool to see Pan Am revived after all these years.

The PanAm name has been associated with a number of new startups (see but the efforts failed miserably for one reason or the other. Until recently there was even a PanAm railways with a fairly scattered reputation, but I understand that CSX is buying the company.
CSX (otherwise known as Crash, Smash, or Xplode) may run into regulatory issues w/the Pan Am RR purchase as it would create a virtual monopoly in the New England states.
When we missed our LACSA flight, we were put on PAA's flight from SJO-MIA. Later that day, it was announced they had shutdown operations. Truly a sad day.

Some of the finest people one could ever meet flew for Pan Am. Bob Cassidy (Berlin), Kit Sanders (Berlin), Fran Stull (Berlin), Brian C. & Ken M. (JFK) - pioneers - mentors - good people with humility and class!
...So true of this airline....
