Este es su último folleto de horarios publicado, poco antes de desaparecer en 1991. Se ha escrito mucho sobre la caída de este gigante, pero lo cierto es que por muy querida que fuese como empresa, la administración era todo menos eficiente.
There is no doubt that Pan Am was one of the best known airlines ever, even for those who never flew with them or those who are not interested in aviation. They were (and they still have) a very recognisable brand/logo, and the airline represents almost perfectly the golden age of air travel. This mythical carrier was always present at every milestone in the history of aviation.
This is their last published timetable, before the airline collapsed in early december, 1991. As an iconic carrier as it was, well run was quite probably not. There are a lot of articles and books around there explaining why this giant felt, but quite surely Pan Am was nothing about cost reduction.
La mayoría de las rutas a centro y Sudamérica de Pan Am las tomó American Airlines. Después de la desaparición de la empresa, surgieron unas cuantas más que siguieron usando su nombre. De hecho, hay una aerolínea dominicana que lo sigue usando y un logo bastante parecido.
As you can see, the once proud carrier had become a mid-sized airline with a hub in Miami and a single European destination (Paris). They flew with Boeing 727, 747 and Airbus A300 planes (at the time it was a bit odd that an American airline flew Airbus planes)
Most of their routes from Miami to South and Central American destinations were taken over by American Airlines. After the Pan Am demise, there were other airlines that used the Pan Am name and logo. Actually, there is still a Dominican carrier bearing the name and a similar looking logo.
