Pan-Am had Dining Rooms?

I admit, I am a flight novice compared to many. I have flown a bunch of times, but almost always crammed into the back of coach. That is why I am always fascinated to learn stuff about airlines. For example, I had no idea that Pan-Am had full sit down dining rooms on the plane with roasts carved at your tables. That is Classy … and yes that capital C was on purpose. How far we have come and yet how far we have fallen.

    Certain models of 747 had finished upstairs lounges and dining rooms. Some just had additional first class seating; some just had additional steerage seating. They all had some form of this “upstairs” area.

    After my last flight, I’m more than ready for Pan Am’s triumphant return to the skies, complete with some form of comfort. Any form of comfort.
