I was just wondering about some of the favorite airline magazines of the different A.net users. I am looking to renew a couple of my subscriptions: Airways and Airliner World, and have been looking into Air Transport World. I also purchase Airliners and used to get AW&ST. What magzines do you like (these and others) and what ones would you recommend people checking out.
As mentioned, I have been looking at ATW recently and like how they seem to have quite a bit of in depth information on current transactions, developments, new routes, and purchases by airlines, while at the same time maintaining a relatively unbaised attitude between Boeing and Airbus and Bombardier and Embraer.

I have a subscription to ATW and absolutely love it. While it doesn't have the amount of pretty pictures as Airliner World and Airways, it's a lot more in-depth into the actual issues facing airlines today and focuses on things from a management and operational standpoint, rather than from the hobbyist's point-of-view. After all, it's intended market is airline and airport management personnel.

Well right now I'm still in HKG (at about 11:30), unfortunately, and b/c the internet is so much in the hotel I took a stroll into the mall located under the hotel and found Airways which is doing well for my Aviation needs. It's about $10 USD here, not too sure what it is at home seeing how I never buy them when home.

Definetely Airliner World. Its very non-biased and has great pictures. Also gives info on deliveries by both Airbus & Boeing. Why it chooses those two over all other aircraft manufacturers I dont know (other than obvious), but it works for me.
I wish they would do a story on TAP Air Portugal....here to wishing!

For my money:
1. World Airline Fleets News (pictures second to none)
2. Airliner World
3. Airline Business (I am just learning of this one)
4. Aviation Letter (for spotting purposes-number crunching not photos)
5. Air Transport World
7. Airways (sorry, the photo quality is crap)
