Airlines have been charting their networks since the birth of powered flight, but their maps have been a little overlooked. I hope to remedy this somewhat. he first Volume of Direction of Travel covers two of the most prolific map publishers, United Airlines and American Airlines. I have included a selection of their most interesting maps, published between the late 1930s and the late 1970s.

For this second edition the design has been updated and some new maps maps have been included. This edition also includes a brief overview of the history of both American Airlines and United Airlines and an essay on the history of the inflight map. The back page includes a portrait of Honolulu International Airport.
