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.

The 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 I have refreshed the design and included some maps that weren’t part of the first edition. I have also added a brief overview of the history of both American Airlines and United Airlines and written an essay on the history of the inflight map. The back page is a portrait of Honolulu International Airport.
