Update @ 10a: It took less than an hour, but we sold this one out already. The excellent response tells me that we’ll need to do this again sometime.
The day has arrived to purchase tickets for dinner on a Pan Am 747 on September 28 starting at 6p. The event will be held east of downtown Los Angeles, about an hour from LAX. Ticket sales begin at 9a Pacific Time. At that time, the link at crankyflier.com/cranky747 will go live and the first 28 to purchase seats will get it. Once they’re gone, that’s it.
Fourteen of those will be in First Class (above). Those passengers will board and sit in their seats in the nose of the 747 for drinks and socializing. When it comes time for dinner, they will be escorted upstairs to the upper deck dining room (below).
The other fourteen travelers will begin their flight in Clipper Class (below). At the time, Clipper wasn’t much more than a premium economy. But when the First Class passengers go upstairs to dine, you will take their seats and be served your meal up front.
All meals will be the same regardless of the class of service. It turns out there is a conflict that day with true Pan Am stewardesses, so we will have suitable replacements to make it a very memorable night.
Remember to go to crankyflier.com/cranky747 at 9a Pacific Time sharp to make sure you get a space.
