POP! Ad Icons Pan Am Stewardess Figurines

Pan American Airways, commonly known as Pan Am, was an American airline that was the first airline to fly worldwide and pioneered numerous innovations of the modern airline industry. To say it has become an iconic brand is an understatement!

So it’s no wonder that we have these POP! Ad Icon Pan Am Stewardess figurines:

For that reason, I am leaving them in the boxes and displaying them with my vintage airplane lamp:

Thank you for flying the Friendly Skies with us today. Please return your trays to the upright position, unfasten your seat belts, and run screaming to the nearest exit! Yes. We have crashed.
