Added DiffLines:

* Despite the unrealistic cockpit drama*, the landing into Hong Kong's Kai Tak Runway 13, with a storm, at night, with a crosswind at the limit. Dean handles it LikeABoss, Ted's nearly freaking out. *(InRealLife, Dean's (the pilot's) word was law, back in those days. First Officers and Engineers had to STFU and do what they were told. This didn't change until 1977, after a KLM 747 took off without clearance in Tenerife and slammed into a Pan Am 747 who was also on the runway).

* Some parts Tearjerker, several parts awesome is the final scene of the series finale. The whole gang gathers on Ted's balcony and watches the ball drop in Times Square ushering in 1964. Dean and Colette reconcile and Ted and Laura have a sweet moment, Ted not wanting to spoil Laura's happiness by telling her about [[spoiler: Amanda's pregnancy]]. Then the Pan Am theme song fades into Aung Lang Syne and the scene closes on everyone looking just a bit sad. And thus, Pan Am's [[ScrewedByTheNetwork probable final episode]] closes.

Added DiffLines:

** For clarification, the third stanza is considered "official"; the first one is considered to have been tainted due to the link of Naziism with German nationalism. So Collette purposely singing it was provocative for a reason.

** And later singing the ''Deutschlandlied'' (German national anthem) at the fete in Kennedy's honor. Except she doesn't perform the third stanza, which was West Germany's official anthem and retained its status for the modern reunified German state. No, Colette sings the first stanza (which was the Nazi anthem). You know, the one the extolls German superiority over everyone and everything in the world? Yeah. You can ''feel'' the party guests' discomfort as they squirm.

* Laura calmly talking to gun-toting Haitians who board the plane in ''"Unscheduled Departures"'' ([[HiddenDepths in their own language]]) and finding out they just want some food, followed by Maggie putting an increasingly belligerent passenger in his place.
