I agree- I used to hate Airways, but now, compared to Airliners, it's highest on my list. I don't know what happened, but the articles are starting to become more vague and "the material that reader's don't want to read anymore!!!" Every single time I open Airliners I see that stupid 707 advertisement on the front cover. Every single time I see the same adds. Every single time since I subscribed I am disapointed. Furthermore, they spend a chunk of time creating OLD NEWS, decreasing its accuracy by every day. READERS DON'T WANT TO READ OLD NEWS, IF ANYONE HASN'T FIGURED THAT OUT YET!!! It's downright obnoxious and uninformitive and will give you the wrong idea.
Looking at the latest issues- Airways- "Flying the Tripple Seven." Now that's the kind of title that makes you go "Ooh! Flying the best of the best." That's the kind of article you want to read. In Airliners- the Legend thing as some of you mentioned before. It does not take 5 pages to create a review of an airline. Maybe 4, but when you go on and on with anything the reader gets bored and doesn't want to have anything to do with you anymore. Even in the latest issue of Airliners- SunCountry. SunCountry this SunCountry that. "After 9-11." Can you say "discussed to death?!" The point of a magazine and any other article of media giving the reader news is to have NEW news THAT HAS NOT BEEN DISCUSSED TO DEATH!!! 9-11 is over. It has already happened. Sure it was a bad thing, but we have to move on. Here we are in Feb. 02 discussing Sept. 01. Looking at it again- a 10 page article on Spantax!!! It does not take 10 pages to review and airline. Sure the pictures take up a lot of space, but still- 10 pages makes the reader think, "SKIP ARTICLE!" Yes, sometimes the articles are informative, but you don't want to be too informative at the same time! That bores the reader.
Maybe some of you love Airliners for what it is. Maybe some others love Airways instead. However, I must say I have been dissapointed in Airliners since I subscribed. That's just my opinion.
