"Ladies and gentlemen, the Captain has turned on the Fasten Seat Belt sign."

Shhh!! My birthday isn't till October, but I happened on what my mom got me! It's something that I LOVE!
A Vintage Pan Am Stewardess Travel Bag!
...It was just sitting there alone and sad in her closet, so I snuck it out for a quick photo session!
I've wanted one since I saw them on 'Catch Me If You Can'!
The Pan Am look also seems to have been the inspiration for Britney Spear's 'Toxic' Stewardess Costume!I absolutely LOVE stews! My mom says that's a derogatory term...BUT...I like it better than "Flight Attendant"! It's always been in the back of my mind that it would be a wicked awesome job!
"Goodbye!
Thank you!
Goodbye!
Bu-Bye!" :)
..tho I'd want a snazzier outfit than they all have now. The new outfits are just depressing.
...NOPE!!!! She's boring the crap out of me! I don't want a bag like hers, and I don't want to buy a stewardess Barbie dressed like that...and that makes me sad.

Tyler Durden: [pointing at an emergency instruction manual on a plane] You know why they put oxygen masks on planes?
Narrator: So you can breath.
Tyler Durden: Oxygen gets you high. In a catastrophic emergency, you're taking giant panicked breaths. Suddenly you become euphoric, docile. You accept your fate. It's all right here. Emergency water landing - 600 miles an hour. Blank faces, calm as Hindu cows.
Narrator: That's, um... That's an interesting theory.
Safety Speech:
"In the event of a loss of cabin pressure these baggy things will drop down over your head. Stop screaming and stick it over your nose and mouth like the flight attendant is doing now. The bag won't inflate, but there's oxygen there, promise. If you are sitting next to a small child, or someone who is acting like a small child, please do us all a favor and put on your mask first. If you are traveling with two or more children, please take a moment now to decide which one is your favorite. Help that one first, and then work your way down."

I really love Zooey Deschanel's PSAirlines stewardess outfit when she runs away from home in 'Almost Famous'(If u haven't seen that go rent it NOW!).

The 70s Southwest Airlines Outfit looks pretty fun too :)
HOT PANTS!
Stow Aways:
The airline allows cats and dogs only for travel in the cargo hold of our aircraft. So be sure you don't have a stow away in your carry on!

Stow Aways like this kitten will NOT be tolerated!
...and watch out for turbulence!
Cobra Starship-
'Snakes on a Plane'
We seem to be losing altitude
at an alarming pace
Midtown downtown
I suggest you grab your ankles
and kiss your ass goodbye!

My father had a bag like that.

Before you make any assumptions, he worked at Kennedy Airport in the 60's and got tons of freebies.

No, there are none left... :(

Hello Everyone,
Does anyone know where you can get the Pan Am Stewardess costume from the Movie Catch Me If You Can? I would need a size 4.
Thanks!

Anonymous- I've only ever seen full vintage uniforms here:

http://www.uniformfreak.com/index2a.html

But- This guy is a collector, and I dunno if he'd sell any of them. It does say on the site tho that he bought most of the uniforms from the actual airlines or from people who had worked as flight attendants. :)
Let me know if u find one! I want one too! :)
