Boeing Stratocruiser lounge
The Boeing Stratocruiser lounge, AKA the Stratoboozer lounge was the cozy cocktail stop before and after dinner. Among its regulars was British Formula 1 driver Mike Hawthorne.
Pan Am did not book passengers in the Boeing Stratocruiser lounge seats but there we were, our family of five and nine other lucky evacuees from Gander flying on a diverted a westbound Stratocruiser headed for New York. The lounge lacked the comforts of the forward cabin but who cared, we were on our way again glad to leave Gander behind. Larry Driscoll
