The book contains photos of airplanes of about 1,000 different airlines, as its title announces. The photos were taken around the world, but London, Miami, and Villavicencio, Colombia, seem to have been the photographers' favorite locations to take photos that were published in this book. Photographers that collaborated included Bob O'Brian, Peter Price, John Smith and Steve Williams.
Although each chapter is arranged alphabetically in the book (e.g. the chapter dedicated to the airlines whose names start with a c comes right after the chapter dedicated to airlines whose names start with a b), the airline companies themselves are not.
Below each of the photos, a small description of the plane pictured is included.
