Pan Am AWARE
Airmen Worried About Remaining Employed
New York Times, September 23, 1974

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

FROM THE EMPLOYEES OF THE WORLD’S MOST EXPERIENCED AIRLINE

  Ask our own government why the Postal Department pays the foreign airlines as much as five times what it pay Pan Am for hauling the same U.S. Mail. Not receiving the same pay for the same work costs Pan Am forty million dollars a year.

Ask our own government why the U.S. Export-Import Bank loans money to “underdeveloped” countries like France, Japan and Saudi Arabia at six percent interest while Pan Am pays twelve percent.

Ask our own government why it is opposed to letting Pan Am fly passengers within our country…it just doesn’t make sense. The domestic airlines now have rights to international routes that we pioneered, and the foreign airlines now serve more cities in the United States than we do.

IF PAN AM WERE ALLOWED DOMESTIC ROUTES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES…OR TO BORROW FROM EXPORT-IMPORT BANK…OR TO PAY REASONABLE LANDING FEES OVERSEAS…OR TO RECEIVE EQUAL POSTAGE RATES FROM OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, WE WOULDN'T NEED ANY SUBSIDY AT ALL!

In fact we wouldn’t need to have taken up a collection to run this is ad.
