Q: I hear there’s a vintage-plane attraction in the San Fernando Valley. What goes on there?

A: The Pan Am Experience, which opened in 2014, is a simulation of a luxurious 1970s flight, complete with actors in period stewardess costumes serving an authentic (and surprisingly tasty) airline meal. Built on the Air Hollywood soundstage by Anthony Toth, the re-created 747 cabin sports authentic plush seating and Pan Am memorabilia. But boarding doesn’t come cheap. A trip to the first-class quarters will cost you (plus one) as much as an actual flight—$875.
