Plot Synopsis

This drama series follows the personal and professional lives of the stewardesses and pilots of the Pan Am clipper The Majestic in the 1960s as they travel the world during a time when air travel was glamorous and the Cold War was just starting. The Majestic crew includes: Dean, the newly named captain who was the first of the pilots not trained in war and is having an affair with Bridget; Ted, the jokester co-pilot who has a buzz cut, an infectious smile and his own dark secrets, coming from a wealthy, privileged, and powerful family; Maggie, a bohemian who lives with intellectuals in Greenwich Village but transforms into a glamorous flight attendant so she can see the world; Laura, a former beauty queen who left her fiance at the altar and was previously on the cover of LIFE magazine; her sister Kate, a rebellious, trilingual stewardess who is working intelligence for U.S. government; Colette, a flirty French stewardess who is the empathetic caretaker of the group; and Bridget, a motherly beauty with a mysterious past.
