What the experts have said about Jetliner Cabins……
“The first and only comprehensive survey of commercial aircraft design from the ’70s to the new Millennium – now updated with better photos, more color pages and new images of the Airbus 380.” - Air Transport World
“In a world where jet travel has become so much more a commodity than an experience, this serves as a reminder of the way things used to be, as well as what they still can be. For anyone interested in airline engineering, design, branding, from lighting choices to even the color of airline seats, this is a definite upgrade.” - CBS News Travel Editor, Peter Greenberg
“A terrific and unique book, beautifully illustrated and written with great knowledge and understanding of airline branding and aircraft interior design. An essential resource.” - Airguide for the Frequent Flyer and AirguideOnline
