I don’t know about you, but I’m a little weary of the drama and intrigue of the current AA/GDS debates, so I thought I’d take a lighthearted stab at blogging about another kind of drama. AA announced to its customers today that they have extended the deadline on their content agreement “well into 2012” with Sabre. So let’s look at a little historical drama instead.
Drama returns us to the glamor, excitement and intrigue of the Jet Age
What provides the most intrigue is a look into the double-lives being led by many of the “people of Pan Am”. From international spies to mistresses of foreign heads of state ; layovers were being used for much more than just rest and relaxation.
OK, how many of you worked for Pan Am??? Are your stories safe?
Oh, and I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Pan Am was one of Sabre’s first Direct Connects.
