Alright so what is the deal at WAF News Magazine? It came back with a new look and everything but the site is never updated and still has the March issue listed on the front page. Is this magazine struggling? I used to love this magazine and the quality, but am not sure what is going on.

I've subscribed since 1992, and have the October 2008 issue on hand for a while now (I have three shots in this issue! ) I just checked the website, and you are correct that it hasn't been updated for a while! I don't know why that is.
It's been one of my favorites for many years, and I have every issue hung in a vertical file. Who knows...maybe the collection will be worth something one day!

The website is lagging behind, but, the magazine in my opinion now has an improved look, the same great quality glossy paper, and what I consider the best color photos available in any aviation magazine.
What I thought was really great: I had just recently renewed my subscription when the magazine folded, when they restarted production many months later, I suddenly started receiving the new editions automatically. Any other magazine probably would not have done this and tried claiming they weren't legally required to do so.
Keep up the great work Ricky!

For some years I had beeen a subscriber, and they went bust. I then discovered skyliners magazine, which is similar with fleet news and lots of photos on glossy paper. A bit tacky and too colourful in layout, but plus the added value of feature stories and two language info.
When I heard there would be a restart of WAFN, I wrote several emails - no answer.
Seems they went bust again, no website, nothing. Shame, they were very good, I would have remained a faithful customer...

I re subscribed to World Airline Fleets News at the 2007 Airliners International convention in MCI, and I've been very happy with it.
It usually takes about a month for magazines to reach the USA. I received my copy of the May issue about 1 1/2 weeks ago. However, the quality of the photography and news items is just as good as the "old" WAFN. It is still a very enjoyable magazine to read.
