* DuelingShows: With ''The Playboy Club''. Both are considered to be knock-offs of ''MadMen'' to boot. And this show is the big winner, as ''Playboy Club'' was cancelled after just three episodes before the show had even premiered

Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhof: The show was very popular [[http://deadline.com/2012/05/pan-am-honored-in-europe-what-is-its-future-in-america-270169/ in European countries but never found a US audience.]]

* TheBeard: How Amanda sees Ted if they get married.
* TheBechdelTest: Passes with [[IncrediblyLamePun flying]] colors. Inverted with the men on the show, for the first few episodes, at least. It seemed that whenever they talked to each other, it was always about the women. That changed in "Eastern Exposure" where a lot of their dialogue centered around how Dean was able to make flight captain despite nearly 50 first officers above him in seniority.

DuelingShows with {{NBC}}'s ''Series/ThePlayboyClub'' and both attempting to capture the success of ''Series/MadMen'' for primetime broadcast television. Neither attempt worked, though ''Pam Am'' barely "won" the duel by lasting a whole season before being quietly canceled.

DuelingShows with {{NBC}}'s ''Series/ThePlayboyClub'' and both attempting to capture the success of ''Series/MadMen'' for primetime broadcast television. Neither attempt worked, though ''Pam Am'' barely "won" the duel by lasting a whole season before being quietly canceled. But it introduced audiences outside Australia to Creator/MargotRobbie (those who hadn't seen her on ''Series/{{Neighbours}}'', anyway), so something good came out of it.



* BillingDisplacement: Creator/ChristinaRicci, due to being the biggest star in the series, gets top billing, despite that her character, Maggie, is often sidelined or OutOfFocus. The show mainly offers up an EnsembleCast but if a main character had to be picked it would probably be Kate, whose actress, Kelli Garner, gets AndStarring status.



* FakeNationality: French-Canadian Karine Vanasse as the French Colette. Also Australian Creator/MargotRobbie as [[FakeAmerican Laura]].



* HeyItsThatGuy: [[{{Twilight}} Alice Cullen]] plays Ted's childhood friend.



* TheyJustDidntCare: During the pilot episode, as Clipper 22 approaches London, the wingtip navigation lights are swapped: the green one should be on the RIGHT wing, the red one on the LEFT. They got them backwards, which truly grated on this troper's nerves.

* ColdWar: Discussed by the various CIA and [=MI6=] operatives Kate deals with; international flight crewmembers make great intelligence assets because their jobs provide them with built-in covers. Intercontinental flights during this era weren't exactly safe, though, and neither was spying. Bridget learns both lessons to her cost.

** It is remarkabl how well-known Pan American World Airways and its blue globe are, that twentysometing years after its demise people still know of it, speak of it, and cared enough about it to try to make a TV show about it. The end result wasn't what the creators wanted at all.
