Flying on Pan Am Used to Be Amazingly Luxurious

Kick the Hell Out of Modern Airlines - Flying on an airline nowadays is more like a chore than a luxury. But it wasn't always like this. Believe it or not, air travel felt like a special occasion for most of the 20th century. Step aside, JetBlue. Pan Am used to bring the best bang for your buck, luxurious flight experience the likes of which we will undoubtedly never see again.
