This fascinating book examines every aspect of airline
style, from the company liveries and interior designs
of planes to advertising, haute couture, and airborne
Divided into four sections covering fashion, food,
interior design, and identity, Airline shows how
airborne culture has changed since the 1920s.
The book spans the conservative to the outrageous,
from saris to hotpants, from Hugh Hefner’s private
jet to the huge Airbus A380. A wide selection of retro
styles are illustrated with illuminating archive material
and images of ephemera. Airline uncovers the style,
image, and experience of the parallel universe that
exists at 30,000 feet.
• Celebrates the unique culture of air travel, examining plane
interiors, branding, food, and fashion
• Provides a wealth of retro style inspiration, from the elegant
and chic to the kitsch and vulgar
• Will fascinate anyone who has ever traveled by plane
