Good introductory text
on 1 February 2004
A good introduction to the history and operating environment of low-cost carriers, but without offering many greater insights beyond what's already known to the travelling public. The early chapters, offering potted histories of several low-cost airlines is (to my mind) nothing more than a cobbled together cut-and-paste summary typical of a Sunday newspaper.
That said, this is a lively read, and despite its praise for low-cost carriers which at times borders on the blinkered this is a good start for the amateur enthusiast or an industry worker. Just be aware that the book's publisher is Virgin - so don't expect a complete balance!..
