I don't know if you have Borders or Barnes and Nobles book stores in Australia so I have opened up my Airliners magazine and found an e-mail address for you to request a subscription firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are interested in airlines, it is definitely Air Transport World...
Published in USA... If you are interested in General Aviation, I do not know.
For aviation in general - airlines, military and all, both "Flight" (UK) and "Aviation World and Space Technology" (USA) are the best. I personally subscribe to both, since many years ago, as well as Air Transport World.

I have a subscription to Airways and Airlinerworld. They are both great. Both a little pricey but great.
Does anyone know anything about Airline Review Magazine. I can't find it in bookstores. Is it good? Is it worth a subscription?

Flight International (for all aspects of Aerospace news, business and technical articles)
Airline Business (subscripton only, but very interesting business articles and interviews with airline CEO's)
Airliner/Airline News (is it the same magazine ? They always look so similiar) - more enthusiast than business oriented, but very interesting (some of the Captain's Anecdotes do go on though, about Airway 17 this and Vector DME that - ho hum !). Always great pics of new liveries though.
Air Transport World - very business, US-based (so most of the rest of the world only rates a mention). Very good in depth business articles about US carriers though.

I subscribe to Airways and Airliners, those are good airline magazines. I like Airliner World too, I buy it from time to time when there is something in it that appeals to me. It can be anything from the operations of an airline, an aircraft type in detail to an airport anywhere in the world.
I also got a free copy of Airline Review, I knew this magazine through an ad banner here on airliners.net, I never subscribed to it, maybe I will someday, but I go often to the discussion forum on there website. It's the same as airliners.net but on a smaller scale.
There is one in French I like to read, it's Air & Cosmos. That one isn't just about civil aviation, it's also about defense and space. I buy that one also from time to time when there is something appealing, especially when they talk about Airbus Industries. I read a couple of issues about the A340-600, one about test flight and the other one about entry in revenue service. The last issue was all about the A380 in detail.
Conclusion: if I could choose only one, I would pick Airliner World.

Thanks everyone for your responses. Will check the mags out. To be honest, this website and the discussion forum provides the most up to date information (and MISinformation, sometime!) in the industry, way before most magazines. Its great. I've only just discovered airliners.net and can't stay off it for too long. Had NO IDEA there were so many airline freaks out there like myself....my wife and mates have always thought I had a pathological obsession with commercial aircraft and airlines and it's great that there are so many of us out there!

Of the 3 airline related magazines I read - Airways, Airliners and Airliner World, AW has the most hard news. (They advertize "19 plus pages of global news".) It is the most expensive of the 3, but often has pull-out sections, or inserts such as posters. It is British, and this sometimes shows up with articles about minor British airports for example.

Airways and Airliners were both obsoleted when Airliner World showed up in 1999.
There are some interesting articles in each, but they both lack editorial restraint (too many articles are too wordy) and an overall unifying design (pages of solid text and poorly designed page layouts). It makes a graphic designer, like myself, cringe whenever I pick up a copy.
