    1. I didn t know about the Golden Nugget Jet service from Alaska Airlines that went full out 1890 s style during the 60 s The authors do a commendable job making this of a global survey by incorporating photos from the archives of Cathay Pacific, China Airlines, JAL, THAI, Malaysia However, Eva and Singapore Airlines were perhaps overlooked


    2. This book had great pictures, but it was lacking in history and analysis Actually, it s a glorified coffee table book, with text copied from period flight attendant ephemera and often repeated throughout the book But oh, those pictures.


    3. Lovely photos Lovely nostalgia Not much else It was interesting looking at old photos and ad campaigns, but the writing itself is decidedly meh.
