Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I shall be leaving A-net forums and possibly A-net all together shortly. My first class membership expires in a couple of weeks and I cannot justify the cost of keeping it going. Before I leave I want to thank all of you who allowed me to post here. Most everybody put up with my sense of humor though some took issue with it. I never meant to step on toes. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and posting in these forums. I shall miss A-net and all of the fine folk and photos here. Be well. Live long and prosper...Tbone

Why not just get the premium?

You've been here since 2010... Why didn't you just pay $25 for the lifetime membership?

Interesting! I was unaware of the premium option. I thought there was only the $55.00 yearly first class and the $999.99 lifetime membership. Thank you for the insight. I believe I shall go that route. Thanks again.

I'm sure Airliners would get more money with something like 15-20$ a year for first class.

Yeah I just paid for premium. I don't necessarily need the first class perks.

I enjoy your insight and it'd be sad to see you go

Anet is not the only place to communicate....if one cant afford the costs .... keep in touch outside Anet.

Nope, just grandfathered in, old-timer.

When did they change A.net into a paid site?

I used to be a First Class member too, wasn't really worth it and I let it lapse but then just paid the premium fee and now that's all. $5 a month is a little too much, you don't really get anything for it.
I still have the @vip.airliners.net email though which is alright for a throwaway email.

It was around the tail end of 2001.

You've probably just forgotten that you paid $25 7 years ago.

In the past, didn't a post like this deserve the cargo bay photo?


It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

People are too bored to post it....so they just consider it posted

Yep around then. I got in just in time. I do not think I would have ever joined if it cost money for me.
