The design of commercial aircraft interiors today is an art and a science, involving very particular concerns of comfort, space saving and durability.
Jetliner Cabins brings together in a single volume the many different elements which combine to create a satisfying environment for scheduled air travel worldwide: designs • functions • materials • construction • safety • maintenance • overall style • passenger well-being.
In addition to the main text and comprehensive illustrations, there are expert comments from more than 40 international specialists in the field, bringing a wide range of aviation knowledge to the table.
Jetliner Cabins will interest innumerable readers – from manufacturers, airlines and suppliers to travel agents, marketers and salespeople; from airport managers to caterers, designers, engineers and architects; and not least the millions of passengers who travel each year in these special and typically modern surroundings.
