Summary

Airlines are competitive and complex businesses and great airlines don't just happen. In British Airways' case it has been a long journey - in fact, it has been many millions of journeys of customer expectations, experiences and emotions, connected by tradition, innovation and service. From advertising to airports, from first impressions to final destination, every detail informs and shapes the customer experience and shapes those journeys. Using an incredible wealth of material from the British Airways archive, curator Paul Jarvis takes us through the decades from the 1940s to the present, exploring the evolution of adver tising, interiors, on-board experience and crew uniform fashions, and how these have come together to shape not only the internationally renowned British Airways brand but the way we view commercial aviation.

    Rome was once the seat of a vast and powerful empire known for its conquering armies, grand architecture, ahead of its time engineering, and lavish lifestyles of the ruling elite. Today’s modern Rome has all of the elegant, ancient history of its past life mixed with the modern feel of a city at the epicenter of all things Italian. Where else but the “Eternal City” can you grab a slice of authentic Roman style pizza while heading for St. Peter’s Square to see the Pope’s weekly address, or indulge in homemade gelato while checking out the inspiring awe of the ancient Colosseum?
     
    There’s no question that Rome is full of historic splendor and beauty. Not only is it the largest city in all of Italy, but it has stood the test of time, being built on seven hills along the banks of the Tiber river. As the old saying goes, “All roads lead to Rome,” and when you journey there, you’ll instantly realize why. As the central part of one of the most powerful empires the world has ever seen, Rome was a city known for its religious, artistic, architectural, and aristocratic significances. From priceless works of art to delicious, authentic cuisine, Rome has plenty to offer the eager traveler looking to seek out historic adventures as well as modern fun.

    Pictures from Italy

    Dodo Collections brings you another classic from Charles Dickens, ‘Pictures from Italy.’
     
     In 1844, Charles Dickens took a break from novel writing to travel through Italy for almost a year and Pictures from Italy is an illuminating account of his experiences there. He presents the country like a magic-lantern show, as vivid images ceaselessly appear before his - and his readers' - eyes. Italy's most famous sights are all to be found here - St Peter's in Rome, Naples with Vesuvius smouldering in the background, the fairytale buildings and canals of Venice - but Dickens's chronicle is not simply that of a tourist. Avoiding preconceptions and stereotypes, he portrays a nation of great contrasts: between grandiose buildings and squalid poverty, and between past and present, as he observes everyday life beside ancient monuments. Combining thrilling travelogue with piercing social commentary, Pictures from Italy is a revealing depiction of an exciting and disquieting journey. In her introduction, Kate Flint discusses nineteenth-century travel writing, and Dickens's ideas about perception, memory and Italian politics.
     
    Charles Dickens was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the twentieth century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories enjoy lasting popularity.
     
    Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.

    Dancing at the Fountain: In Conversation with World-leading Hoteliers is a unique book of conversations and interviews by Conor Kenny, a leading hotel and hospitality learning and development expert. The hoteliers interviewed in the book include: Kiaran MacDonald, The Savoy Hotel, London; Philippe Leboeuf, Mandarin Oriental, Paris; Nathalie Seiler-Hayez, The Connaught Hotel, London; Michael Davern, The K Club, Ireland; Bernard Murphy, Gleneagles, Scotland; Greg Liddell, The Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona; Luc Delafosse, Hôtel de Crillon, Paris. Between them, these seven hoteliers have run some of the world’s most iconic and well-known hotels: Āman Resorts; Carlyle Hotel, New York; Claridge’s, London; Connaught Hotel, London; Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Arizona; Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver; Fancourt, South Africa; Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland; Hotel Burj Al Arab, Dubai; Hôtel de Crillon, Paris; Hôtel du Louvre, Paris; Hôtel Lutetia, Paris; Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong; Mandarin Oriental, Barcelona; Mandarin Oriental, Paris; Sandy Lane, Barbados; The K Club, Kildare; The Ritz Hotel, London; The Savoy Hotel, London; and Waldorf Astoria, Beverly Hills. Their stories are unique, sometimes emotional, always deeply personal and absolutely absorbing: greeting the great and the good, from presidents and heads of state to pop celebrities; quelling rioters by serving them breakfast; hosting the Ryder Cup golf tournament; dealing with bomb threats and possible evacuation of an entire hotel the morning Nelson Mandela is due to arrive; managing egos; opening new hotels and reviving the old, while still keeping the spirit that made them great. While all of the interviewees share the distinction of managing the best hotels in the world, their career paths are as individual as their stories. Unsurprisingly, hard work features in the hoteliers’ meteoric career rises – as does a focus on service, attention to detail and a love of people, guests and staff alike. Their insight on the future of luxury hotels also makes compelling reading from a rarely-heard source. The book will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in a glimpse behind-the-scenes of the very best hotels in the world. It will be especially valuable for today’s hotel managers as well as upcoming hoteliers who want to understand how the best hotels are run and what took these seven people to the very top of their industry. The book provides a unique perspective on the world of luxury and caring for the rich and the famous through the eyes of those who run some of the world’s iconic hotels.
