A visual history of the birth and growth of the ever-changing airline industry. At the center is a full genealogy of over 100 US airlines from the major airlines to the small local service carriers. Folded into the timeline is the relative market share of passenger traffic for each airline. At the top and bottom of the graphic are images of 20 vintage airline labels. These time-capsule labels provide another view into the history of the airlines. Some of the airlines represented include: Delta, American, Western, National Eastern, Braniff and Central.
The fonts and colors used in the graphic are inspired by the art deco style of the 1920s and 1930s.
