Yes. I've noticed the last few issues have all the same cover layout, some CEO in front of his aircraft. Can they not find a female CEO, or even just diversify the content? I've been meaning to write to them about that actually. They also seem a bit behind with stuff sometimes but I suppose it's just they way the magazine comes out. I still buy it for the interesting "old days" of aviation type articles.

In the march edition on the very first page it says "Airbus Orders and Deliveries" with the Boeing orders and deliveries under it and vice versa. But this is not what disappoints me. It is rather that their reporting has gotten weaker and less stable. I e-mailed Tony Dixon about a particular subject and he could not disagree with me. I hope they get things together, they've gotten us used to expecting the best...

I wouln't say it's bad, but the articles seem to have gotten awfully simplistic. That, and I'd like to read about something other than the next startup in Brazil or whatever. It could be a lot better.

Me too, but it seems like these types of articles are becoming few and far between.

I think you are talking about "Airliner World", not "Airliners". At this point I think Airliner World is much better.

I can't even remember the last time I picked up an Airliners magazine, must have been in 00 or 01 sometime.

Now, Airways is a magazine that went downhill back in the late 90s ... the editors just got too full of themselves and they really showed it in their responses to the Letters section. Not to mention how repetative the articles got. The only reason I kept buying the magazine was for Rick Drury's articles, but when he left that was it for me.

I think Airways is the better of the two. I only started buying them back in 2005. There are good articles from the different pilots who contribute. There was also very interesting articles on IL-62'S and Iran Air recently.

Same here. They had it in a bookstore in a neighboring town around 99 or 00. I bought an issue here or there, they just don't seem to sell them anywhere around here. I'm sure I could find it on the internet, but I'm too lazy to do a search. I've purchased quite a few issues of Airways. With Anet, it seems like when I read something in a magazine that catches my eye newswise I remember reading it on Anet a couple weeks before I see it in the magazine. About the only time I get the magazines anymore is if they have a surplus of good pictures in them, gettin lazy I guess.

I don't think I've boughten an aviation magazine in a good 3 years ... I still browse through them, and as much as I enjoy Airliner World, its usually old stuff that we've read/discussed here already.

In 2007 the issues were 80 pages. I just received my Jan/Feb 2010 Airliners issue. It has 48 pages. No airplane picture on the cover. Fewer pictures of airplanes and more photos of people. There are pictures of airplanes on only 23 of the 48 pages. Gone are the airplane liveries found in the Photos News section. I don't plan to renew my subscription.

Airways magazine has gone down the tubes. It seems they have it in really good with someone at AS as they always have articles about them. Everything seems very mainstream and nothing of note anymore.

Airlinerworld & Airportworld do a great job. Some months are better than others but I think that depends on where your intersted lie.

I'm currently a subscriber and I agree that it appears to be going downhill. There have been quite a few departures of staff at the magazine over the last little while (as announced in the magazine itself). This is usually not a good sign.

In addition, my Jan/Feb 2010 issue arrived in mid-March while it normally should have arrived near the end of Jan. I had contacted them after February had come and gone without me receiving the magazine. They never got back to me but the magazine finally showed up last week. The Jan/Feb issue also appears to be one of the thinnest one yet.

It's also becoming increasingly difficult to find it in newsprint and magazine stores.

If things don't turn around soon, I have a feeling this magazine won't be around for much longer (I really hope not though).

As someone who writes for a non-aviation magazine I will say that times have gotten very tough for small traditional magazines over the past decade because of the rise of the Internet. This is especially true of aviation, where most subscribers are middle- to upper-class and have regular access to the Internet. For people accustomed to tons of realtime discussion on A.net, PPRUNE, etc, it's hard to embrace old-school magazines and that becomes increasingly true as we get used to all this new technology. The other problem too is that once subscriber numbers go down, then advertisers start bailing. This means that operating budgets diminish and you have an irreversible downward spiral.

What these magazines should have done from the beginning was to start cornering a place on the Internet and figuring out how to be a part of social networking... for example Airliners magazine could have bought out Airliners.net. If you look at what the Military Times has done with running a gigantic discussion board for servicemembers, that's a good long term move. Though I certainly admit a buyout is often not a good thing for a board if the buyer isn't intent on doing a good job shepherding their new acquisition.

I've noticed this too. A while back I was going through my old Airways mags and it seemed like there was an article about AS every 2 or 3 issues. I like AS, but I would like to see articles about other airlines that I like too.

Agreed on the decline of Airliners. It seemed to have lost is focus, and, simulataneously a lot of its physical size and content. I also agree that this has been a challenging period for "special" magazines, however the internet and growth in new media also offers the chance to promote your magazine to target groups using the same media.

I also write, but for fire service related magazines, and the internet is truly a double edged sword. If you put out a consistently quality profuct that meets the demands of your most loyal customers, then you have a base form which to expand and develop your product. If you loose those folks, however, (as often happens when magazines, airlines, and other entities fail) then you hasten the demise of something that people used to love. Sad to see this happen with Airliners, but it also seems to have occured concurrently with their change in publishers a few years ago.

Perhaps they will figure out a way to right the ship...

What I really loved about the old Airliners and Airways was their coverage stories of old airlines/airplanes. They would cover a story about a defunct airliners, and in the same article cover something in the present aviation scene. Plus, the photos were really sharp and precise in colors. I did notice a drop in quality for the photos for both magazines at one time. They both lost their creativity as well.

As an Airliners contributor, let me shed some slight on this matter and answer some of your questions.

In late December Airliners switched editors, publishers, and office locations. Any one of those by itself is a huge extra burden, but combined--and with a looming deadline and the December holidays--threw the production schedule off track.

The priority for the Jan/Feb edition was to get it out as quickly as possible as it was quite late. In terms of work required per page, the photo news section is quite high. A decision was made to forgo that section for the issue in order to get it out fast. Given the number of people who have commented on that section not being in the most recent issue, I think the editorial board would have re-considered that decision in hindsight. The section will come back.

Another issue is going off to the press shortly (shameless self-plug: I have an article in it). The editorial board is catching up, but it is hard as they are used to putting out one issue every two months and now have to speed that up.

From what I understand we are looking into some very promising web developments. Stay tuned.

Please let me know any comments, questions, or feedback you have. We really do value it and appreciate your readership. Hang in there.



Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

I purchase Airways & Airliners at Borders or Barnes & Noble, the last issue I purhcased was February 2010, today I vistied both stores, no copies were available, the clerk at Borders said "I heard they stopped publication." From a purchasers point of view the editorial board with readers best interests as well as the magazines reputation a brief article outlining upcoming publisihing changes and impact to the end user is a simple courtesy.

I agree. The use of web-based discussions and info is also what killed the old standbys for MilAv (WIngs/Airpower). And this is not unique to Airlines/Airways. This is probably anathema on this list, but WWI Aero and its companion publication, Skyways (very good for early piston aviation) had to drop paper and go all pdf. It was the only way to survive when they experienced the rise in cost of printing. Two years back, I got my latest isue of Smithsonian Air&Space and was stunned to see the reduced numbers of pages, but also the shody paper quality; what kept me going back was the decent coverage beyond commercial aviation, just to keep abreast of what's going on. I still buy my mags and have a couple of subscriptions. Old habits from pre-internet days, but also, when there is no web access (rare, I concede), you can still get your info from the mags. sift screens instantly, instant reboot, and you can read it anywhere!  

Jokes aside, a bigger problem is that we all talk about this, but few of us contribute to the print publications. Granted, some editors are snotty, but if you have something solid to offer, they will consider it.

Yeah, but flying in Alaska is pretty interesting. It seems that the pilot that wrote those now flies for Air Pacific, which presents some of the same challenges but in a warmer climate. He seems to do a lot of homework though, which makes it more interesting and less repetitive. The same thing can be said for the QR pilot that writes for them.
