When Jetliner Cabins was first published in Hardback in 2003, it was described as the first and only comprehensive survey of the commercial-aircraft cabin environment from the late 1970s to the turn of the millennium. This book developed and greatly expanded on the author's series of articles which appeared in Aircraft Interiors magazine from 2000 to 2002. The 16 core Chapters focussed on: Product Branding, Passenger Experience, Cabin Maintenance and Marketing Challenge.

The updated Paperback Edition, published in 2006, contained a supplement featuring the high-efficiency next-generation aircraft: the Airbus A380; the Boeing B787 Dreamliner; the Bombardier CSeries; the Embraer E-Jets, the Legacy and the Phenoms - and exciting new passenger-service products for first, business and economy class.

For the E-Book Edition, the unique original content from the first two Editions of Jetliner Cabins has been reformatted, redesigned and updated, and the overall scope has been greatly increased: it is now available for download as an interactive E-Book APP for iOS and Android devices. Readers can select interactive routings to customize the use of the material according to their own personal interests and work requirements.

The overall text coverage has been greatly extended and there are hyperlinks for direct access to the websites of 400+ organizations mentioned in the work.
There are click points to visit a sequence of new Picture Galleries that display the main classes of travel, related portfolio material and customer collectibles such as Amenity Kits, Bag Tags, Menu Cards and Timetables/Configurations - a total of 4,000+ images.
There are in-depth Guest Essays and Comments from 50+ international Specialists.
You can search keywords, consult the Index and track your preferred topics via cross-reference points.
If you are interested in future cabin developments, there is a comprehensive new Chapter 15/‘Green’ Advances: Superior Interiors - four times the length of a ‘normal’ Chapter.
If you hanker after the glory days of flying, the Concorde presentation has been expanded, and there are new Case Studies analyzing cabin programmes implemented by Braniff and Pan Am.
Grateful acknowledgement is given to the airlines and other organizations credited in this book for permission to use their photographs. There are other images, also credited, that come from publicly available sources, for example, company sales brochures and websites. Pictures that are displayed without photo credits come from the Collection of J. Clay Consulting.

Jetliner Cabins is a magnificent book featuring everything you'd ever want to know about the aesthetic, design, and service of airlines. I recommend the book highly.

Author Statement - 2014

Last year, in 2013, the aviation community honoured the 110th anniversary of the first powered, sustained and controlled flight by the Wright Brothers (as outlined in the Introduction to the Hardback Edition of Jetliner Cabins), and industry statistics are now showing well over 2 billion passengers flying annually on the world's scheduled airlines! Jet travel has become part of the fabric of modern-day living, and competitive air ticket prices are providing a greater range of options than ever before.

Valued at US$8.4-billion in 2010, the global commercial aircraft-interiors market is expected to grow to approximately US$12-billion by 2016. The aviation trade magazines do a tremendous job reporting progress - and some excellent airline-design picture collections were published a few years ago - but I find it really hard to believe that, a full decade after its launch, Jetliner Cabins is still the ONLY dedicated book specifically covering this all-engrossing subject.

I hope that Readers will enjoy the descriptions and pictures of the hundreds of airliner-interior scenarios that are presented in this new E-Book Edition of Jetliner Cabins: Evolution & Innovation.
