Small leg room, poor quality meals, and extra charges for luggage in the overhead bin. These are all things that have become synonymous with the present day air travel experience. Long gone are the days of luxury travel, with bountiful seat room and personalized service.
Air Hollywood, Los Angeles’ premiere aviation-themed film studio, is offering to let you “relieve the magic of this golden age era in travel”. Using a fake Pan Am 747 restored to its full 1970s glory, Air Hollywood immerses you in a magical night of dining that entails a four-course meal, followed by a period-specific film and cocktails. Actors in ’70s-era uniforms act as servers, immersing the “flyers” in a retro dining experience.
The studio is generally used to create elaborate sets for major motion pictures, and it has been used in such films as Wolf of Wall and Bridesmaids. The company is now selling tickets for the four-hour flight experience for dates beginning in January of next year, and some dates are already sold out.
Seats on the upper deck are going for $327, while a spot on the main deck cabin is currently being sold for $267 on the booking website.
The gourmet four-course meal begins with a shrimp cocktail or an insalata caprese. The main course offers options including chateaubriand and roasted chicken with peppercorn sauce. Vegetarian options are also offered. The third course is a selection of fruit, cheese and biscuits accompanied by port wine, and dinner service is finished off with a dessert cart, and of course tea and coffee.
For fans of Mad Men and all things 1960s and ’70s, this experience looks to be a dream come true. Very cool!
