Has anyone seen this book and if so, how is it?
Are there any terminals that get more attention than others?

Airliners online.com is sold out, so have you seen it at any other US retailers?

I have the book - it's quite nice, with some great pictures, but I wish that they spent more time on T4.

Mir showed it to me and I loved it; I purchased it from Amazon.co.uk and have thoroughly enjoyed it...Some amazing information and photos in there.

I've got this book and it's one of the best airport history books I've ever come across. The descriptions of the terminals - especially the individual airline departure lounges at the old IAB - are very in-depth and there are a whole bunch of pictures I've never seen before (rather than the same old tired photos of the TWA terminal that everyone's seen.) I bought it almost as soon as it was released and it definitely exceeded any expectations I had for it.

There's a chapter on each of the terminals - the IAB, Pan Am (T3), Northwest/Braniff/Northeast (T2), Eastern (the old T1), United (T9), American (T8), BOAC (T7) and National (T6). There's a brief history of the TWA building, but since it's been covered so much in other books the author chooses to focus on the rest of the airport - something I appreciated very much, as those buildings aren't celebrated nearly as much as they should be.)

The final chapter covers the new terminals at JFK - Terminal 1 (1998), Terminal 4 (2001) and the new American and JetBlue terminals currently being built.

Definitely worth the money if you can find a copy.
