Airline: Identity, Design & Culture

Airline: Identity, Design & Culture Cover

 

Staff Pick

The cabin lights are down. It's near black save for the sympathetic spots identifying the restless. Your stewardess walks up the aisle holding a tiny bottle of liqueur in her perfectly manicured hands. As she adds a splash of tonic to your gin, in a voice barely audible over the sultry rumble of the fuselage, she purrs, "Would you like some peanuts?" Hypnotized by the way that smart little pillbox hat rests on her carefully sculpted bun, you flirtatiously ask "So when are we approaching the tarmac?" She smiles. You are an imbecile. She smiles and pats you on the shoulder, the only contact you'll get, and continues up the aisle. There are no tips on how to become a member of the Mile High Club in this survey of the fashions and designs of airlines worldwide, from the classy forties, past the swinging sixties, through the cocaine-fueled seventies. Nonetheless, Airline is the Bible for anyone with an airplane fetish: those of us who become aroused by simply being part of the whole air travel experience.
