Hello All. I was wondering how do you request things from airlines (safety cards, magazines, stationary). I am kinda new at this, do you jsut e-mail the airline and ask them for certain things. Also, does anybody know airlines that are generous with giving out freebies?

I just recieved a barff bag and a schedule from Canada 3000. I just e-mailed them and asked them for a barff bag after I explained I am a collector. They replied to my e-mail 2 days later. They were very good about it (as opposed to Air Transat whom I e-mailed at the same time and they still haven't replied). By the way, Canada 3000 and Air Transat are Canadian charter carriers.

Most airlines will at least respond if you e-mail them politely with a request for cards, though yu may not get what you want.
Don't make a habit of milking the airlines for cards- my personal policy is that I will only e-mail a certain "Airline X" once, and only then if I can't acquire the card(s) of theirs I'm after from a trade or sale. Milking the airlines will turn them off to our hobby if they find themselves spending tons of replacing safety cards constantly.
The only exception to this rule is jetBlast (jetBlue), which I constantly harass because I love their replies! >:->
