JETLINER CABINS, first published in hardcover in 2003, is the first comprehensive survey of the commercial-aircraft cabin environment from the late seventies to the turn of the millennium. This book develops and greatly expands on the author’s series of articles which appeared in Aircraft Interiors magazine from 2000 to 2002.
The updated softcover edition, published in 2006, showcases the high-efficiency next-generation aircraft: Airbus A380-800; Boeing B787 Dreamliner; Bombardier CSeries; Embraer E-Jets, the Legacy and the Phenom 100 and 300; and exciting new passenger-service products for first, business and economy class.
Although nearly 2 billion passengers per year travel on the scheduled airlines worldwide, until now there have been no books devoted specifically to the subject of jetliner cabins. My survey provides a summary of the developments that have taken place during the era of mass affordable air travel. In the past 25 years airlines have spent fortunes on interior upgrade programmes – to comply with escalating regulatory requirements, to address individual customer needs and to differentiate themselves from their competitors. What do passengers get for their money? How are new products such as sleeper seats and lounge bars integrated into existing floor plans? Why do some cabin environments feel more welcoming than others? This book is where readers will find answers to some of these difficult questions.
