these are the two books i've used so far, both textbooks.
Airport Operations - Ashford, Staton, Moore
Airport Planning & Managment - Wells, Young
i have found a few instances in the second book where there are errors in important information. still waiting on a response from the publisher. if you can get your hands on the ICAO (or was it IATA) book then you're in luck too. that's got every single reguation in them. hard to come by though.
as for the airline ops, the only book that you should be looking for (in my opinion) is Air Carrier Operations by Holt and Poynor. ISBN: 0-8138-0788-3. i, as well as quite a few of my professors find that to be the best book for the subject.
