View Full Version : comercial jet travel

The post-war years saw huge growth in tourist travel. Pan Am met demand by being the first to introduce the newest planes. In the early 1950s, Pan Am added to its fleet classic airliners like the Lockheed Constellation and Boeing Stratocruiser. But Pan Am forced the entire industry to take a giant leap ahead when it was the first airline to begin passenger jet service. At a time when there was little enthusiasm for the jet airliner, Pan Am's Juan Trippe managed to play Boeing and Douglas Aircraft off each to convince both to produce jets for an unknown market.
