Sky high style


Air travel and glamour have been synonymous since the first commercial flight took to the skies in 1914.  The new book Airline: Style at 30,000 Feet by Keith Lovegrove (Laurence King, £9.95) looks at every aspect of airline style, from the original stewardess uniforms in 1930 to the outlandish interiors of the 1970s and today’s first class technology.
