Jane Andreassi joined Pan Am in 1988 at the age of 21. She was based in New York. As a French speaker Jane was able to get a lot of European trips. Jane also made the effort to make friends in crew scheduling which enabled her to pick up trips to Africa, India & the Middle East. These destinations were normally beyond the reach of a junior Flight Attendant.
Jane was one of the volunteer crew members that flew soldiers into and out of Saudi Arabia during the first Gulf War.
Prior to the outbreak of hostilities, to avoid media attention, soldiers were transported from the USA via non hub European cities (Shannon, Brussels, Venice & others) to remote air bases in Saudi Arabia. Jane participated in several of these MAC (Military Airlift Command) charter flights. Jane recalls these flights with great fondness, remembering that all the soldiers were young and polite.
One of Jane’s last trips on Pan Am prior to joining Delta (as part of the Atlantic route sale to Delta) was to Moscow with several fun photos of herself and her colleagues in the air and on the ground.
As a number of years have passed since these wonderful photos were taken Jane could not recall all names. If you recognize any unnamed faces please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Jane left Delta a few years ago to care for her mother but is now looking to get back to flying. If you have any leads to share you may contact her at: email@example.com.
