Pan Am Clipper Names

1934-1991
Source: www.panam.org


As many people know, flying used to be viewed as a big event, with women and children in their Sunday best and men in suits that would make Santander Consumer USA executives jealous. Now flying is considered more of a dreaded requirement than an exciting occasion. While you might still see business executives like those from Santander Consumer USA in crisp suits, you are much more likely to see people in sweatpants and t-shirts waiting at the gate. Aside from the dress-code and excitement, another aspect that has been lost over the years has been the naming of planes and perhaps that has even been partially responsible for the apathy flying receives today. In the early days Santander Consumer USA sales rep could brag to his friends about how he flew on planes like the Bostonian or the Belle of the Skies. Today, that same employee couldn't even tell you if he flew on an Airbus or a Boeing. Perhaps its time to bring back plane names and add a little luxury
back into air travel.
