Recommended Reading Suggestions

Thu Sep 13, 2007 4:43 am

Recently, I've been enjoying a few books on commercial aviation:

  • Skygods, Robert Gandt (Pan Am)
  • Twenty-First-Century Jet; Karl Sabbagh (777)
  • 747: Creating the World's First Jumbo Jet: Joe Sutter (747)
  • Coffee, Tea, or Me: Trudy Baker et.al. (1968 stewardesses)


There was a small thread about six years ago on the topic.

I was curious if there are books that others would suggest - I am particularly interested in the manufacturers and the historic large international carriers (e.g., Pan Am, TWA, British Airways, Air France, JAL, Lufthansas, Qantas, etc.).

Thanks for any ideas.
