Like this one.
Other TV shows and films tried to capture the thrill of the airline experience.
Films like COME FLY WITH ME (1963).
How great is this poster? Even in French...
And then there's BOEING, BOEING (1966)...
And the awful Gwyneth Paltrow vehicle VIEW FROM THE TOP (2003). What a stinker!
A much better film which used Pan Am as production element was Spielberg's CATCH ME IF YOU CAN (2002), which I believe is currently having a second life as a big splashy Broadway musical.
On TV, there was the adaptation of the saucy novel COFFEE, TEA OR ME? (1973)
The ABC MOVIE OF THE WEEK version was a bit tamer.
Starring Karen Valentine and John Davidson.
Looks like the original book has been re-issued by Penguin. Didn't they used to publish classics?
Another attempt by network TV to capture the stewardess experience was the CBS dramedy FLYING HIGH (1978-79).
Starring Connie Selleca, Pat Klous and Kathryn Witt.
It was called a "jiggle show" or "CHARLIE'S ANGE:LS in the air."
Apparently it's still popular somewhere...
Years later, FOX gave us THE CREW...
A little more racy was the British series MILE HIGH (2003-05)...
Which was kind of a throw back to the sexploitation flicks like...THE STEWARDESSES (1969)...which was in 3D.
I'm not gonna go into the AIRPORT series of films, but I really must mention that the all-time best Airplane movie is, of course AIRPLANE! (1980).
But by all means, avoid the sequel...
...and avoid PAN AM. Is that show still even on?
