Quoting Planenutz (Thread starter): The April 2009 issue of "Sky" can be purchased for $3.99. It contains a fleet list inclusive of nwa's aircraft as well as combined route map.
What a joke. The only reason I look at these magazines is to see the fleets, route maps, terminal maps, and all the other cool aviation stuff. But even this is ridiculous because of the abundance of information on the internet. The articles are terrible in pretty much all airline magazines, no deep reads. If I only look at them because I am an aviation buff, why would someone who could careless about aviation buy one?
Duluth is a nice city, we even get 3 months without snow per year

Quoting Planenutz (Thread starter): Something about the idea of selling inflight magazines seems wrong to me. They're the one thing that airlines actually encouraged you to take away for free!
Were they ever at the book stores before, and if so were they free? If not than maybe Delta is just trying to see if they can find some extra revenue, and like you said, you can always book a flight and just take one for free.....
If what I stated is the case, I don't see why this would offend or upset anyone in any way.

Quoting GOCAPS16 (Reply 6): Let see. Pay $400 for a flight and get a free inflight mag or pay $3.99 and buy one. Yea, I'll pay for the flight and grab one for free.
I was referring to if you already had a travel plan booked, or were planning on in the future. I do not see the harm in Delta putting their magazine in stores for a price. Before they were only aviable on a flight, now you do not have to have a flight booked to get the magazine if you so want, and if you do have a flight booked, don't pay the $3.99 and just pick one up when you fly.
Your sarcasm was greatly appreciated though, and I don't think every Delta flight costs $400.
