Is it "Flying off course" or is it "Airline Business"? Both are by the same author.

Many thanks to all forum members for their suggestions.

I will elaborate somewhat on my original query.

I am interested in studying books, magazines or websites on 'airline Marketing & management'.

The only good book that I have been able to find till now is "Airline Marketing and Management (Paperback) by Stephen Shaw.

Coming to magazines I find 'Airline business' interesting and 'Aircraft Commerce' very descriptive and detailed.

If anyone knows about books, magazines or websites that are worth reading, kindly do share them with me.

Flying off Course deals with the MICRO aspects of Airline Management - AIrline Business should (if its predcessor - the 1st edition is anything to go by) should deal with the MACRO issues.

Dont automatically assume that just because the title or cover page of a book does not have the word "airline marketing/management", it will not deal with the topic.

Personally speaking, I found Doganis a much better bet for my airline marketing elective rather than Shaw, but then that is purely my opinion which may vary from others.
