Great to hear. I hope they grow to be as big as they were before.

Wow, looks pretty legitimate. Brownsville is an interesting initial hub choice, though... :(

Let's no get too excited about this. It twould be the 5th time the brand has been revived since the original Pan Am went bust.1 - a low cost budget airline between 1996 and 1998 2 - a small airline based in Maine between 1998 and 20043 - an affiliate of 2 between 2004 and 20084 - in 1998 a railway company bought the rights to use Pan Am's branding. From 2006 Pan Am's logo, colours etc have be applied to railway vehicles.there's also Pan Am World Airways Dominicana based in the Dominican Republic.This latest incarnation hopes to start services in 2011 but doesn't give a postal address or even an e-mail address. Googling "Pan American Airways, Inc" returns no hits.

Interesting to hear Pan American's name being used again. :( I found one return that might be worth mentioning though. :A little off topic but a good quick read.http://www.aopa.org/aircraft/articles/2010/100811lefty.htmlA pilots story flying a Boeing 314 from KFSO to PHNL in 1944.Still Flying at 93. :(

That looks like an interesting virtual airline. But they should probably post this in the VA sections.......wait......That's the website for a legitimate airline? Ouch.From the Photoshopped stock photo of the woman handing over the boarding pass, to the God-knows-what flightsim graphic for the airplane, I hope they can spin up a bigger budget for marketing. You NEVER want to see any business fail, but some always seem to be failed before they start. Here's to hoping my gut is wrong about this one.

It is seeking donations (via a Donation Button!) to restore a former PanAm building at Brownsville and wants to know what hotels people stayed when flying with PanAm is the past because "We just might renovate them as well". All that when it's trying to start up an airline by next year.To coin a phrase - it cannot be serious!

+1Those 'reincarnations' of the original Pan Am did not do the brand any justice.
