Pan Am Episode Guide
Pan Am Season 1 Episode 1 – Pan Am Pilot Summary – In the premiere episode of Pan Am, “Pilot,” Dean takes on his first assignment since his promotion, piloting the Clipper Majestic on its inaugural New York to London flight. Bridget is supposed to be his lead stewardess, until she’s a no-show for the flight. Uh oh. Grounded purser Maggie (Christina Ricci) is called in to fill in for her. On the same fateful flight, Kate adds another dimension to her work as she takes on her first assignment from U.S. intelligence. Her stress is compounded when she discovers that newly minted stewardess, Laura, her sister, is also working the same flight in the highly anticipated new series, “Pan Am.” This series airs on ABC.
The song in the commercials is from Grace and the Nocturnals, a cover of “Fly Me to the Moon.”

Pan Am Show Summary
Passion, jealousy and espionage… They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960’s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in this thrilling and highly-original new series.
In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are extremely glamorous, the pilots are genuine rock stars and the stewardesses are the most desirable women in the world. Not only are these flyboys and girls young and attractive, but to represent Pan Am they also have to be educated, cultured and refined. That’s right. They’re trained to handle everything from in-air emergencies to unwanted advances – all without rumpling their pristine uniforms or mussing their hair.
There’s Dean (Mike Vogel) – a cocky, charismatic and ambitious new pilot – the first of a new breed not trained in the war. On the sly against company policy, he’s dating Bridget, a stunning beauty with a mysterious past. A rebellious bohemian, Maggie (Christina Ricci) turns into a buttoned up professional for work so she can see the whole world. Rounding out the crew are flirtatious Collette (Karine Vanasse), the adventurous Kate (Kelli Garner) and, finally, Laura (Margot Robbie) – Kate’s beauty queen younger sister, a runaway bride, who recently fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies. Doesn’t it sound great?
