Venice Fernandez O'Donnell
Venice Fernandez O’Donnell joined Pan Am in June of 1967. She was one of four Jamaican natives in her class. At that time Pan Am would always make an in-flight announcement about the nationality of crew members so company recruiters were always looking for qualified international applicants. In the class photo below Venice is in the front row (3rd from the left). Venice remained with Pan Am until 1972. During her tenure Venice was based in both Miami & San Francisco. During her west coast time she flew many Pacific trips including some “Rest & Recuperation” flights for soldiers involved in the Vietnam conflict. Below are some photos from Venice’s time at Pan Am. If you recognize any faces without names please let me know at email@example.com and I will update the images.
