In Jetliner Cabins, Jennifer includes beautiful illustrations of cabin interiors reminiscent of James Bond cocktail bars, with the promise that this sort of luxury might, one day very soon, be available to all travellers; yet, practical, as well, she also provides a commercial perspective of the aviation business in the past and present, and points to its future — rightly so by one who has been a key player in the Air Transport industry for 30 years.

Jetliner Cabins is a unique resource covering the past (Concorde, Eastern Airlines, and Braniff International), the present (a comprehensive survey of U.S. and international airlines), and the future (Airbus A380, Boeing B787 Dreamliner, Bombardier CSeries, and the new category of Embraer Very Light Jets). In the past 2 5 years, airlines have spent fortunes on interior upgrade programs – to comply with escalating regulatory requirements, to address individual customer needs and to differentiate themselves from their competitors. Readers will find in the 16 chapters information about everything from safety, seat design, and fabric selection to meal service, accessibility and maintenance in first-, business- and economy- class cabins.
