American Way Magazine

Thu Oct 28, 2004 10:28 pm

I do not fly often enough.

But my wife just brought me the American Way magazine from a trip she took this month. In hte passenger info section, it no longer shows the aircraft fleet.

How long ago was that taken out? Why? Would it be replaced?

I have the October edition with me right now and it is listed on page 96. the magazine for Continental Airlines however, does not. And speaking of which, the Continental magazine does not have a terminal map for Memphis, while the Northwest magazine does not have a terminal map for Cleveland. Just something I found peculiar.

i concur with STLGph, mine has it listed too. but when i was flying earlier it wasnt in there, so i split open the spine and someone had ripped it out really neatly.

same with the damn terminal maps!

American Way usually lists the aircraft fleet at the front of the passenger service section. It's followed by drink information, hub maps, and then really subpar destination maps. It'd be a convoluted mess, but I wish American would actually show the routes on their destination maps - or at least the international routes, as United does in Hemispheres.

I think AA should just come out with an Interactive Route Map on aa.com. Its easy to use, just roll the mouse over the city, and you get all the nonstop cities served. Check some of them out...Southwest and America West have them i know for sure.

Is it possible to get a subscription to American Way? Or is the only way to see it, is to fly AA? Regards.

Why would you want a subscription to that magazine? There is a good article every now and then and I enjoy the fleet and hub information, but the rest of it reminds me of a ritzy "Enquirer".

Couldn't have said it better myself Moman. Aside from Jim Shahin's column and the "Celebrated Weekend" feature (which has gotten pretty bad in the last year - Queen Latifah's Newark?) there's not much of interest in American Way besides a whole lot of ads for expensive Miami condos, Brazilian steakhouses and Karass negotiating seminars. The new editorial staff has been tinkering with the layout for months, so every successive issue looks different.

"I think AA should just come out with an Interactive Route Map on aa.com."

Agreed. It could be easily done to any website. Just have an intern do it for one of their projects. Why not? Cheap labor, great for the website, great on -their- resume, and it is information already available to the general public, so no breach of any confidentiality there.

Subscriptions are available, but you can also check it out online at http://www.americanwaymag.com.

Did you all know that AA Publishing also produces Southwest's Spirit magazine? I found that interesting.

I don't mean to belittle, insult, or offend anyone. However, as a loyal AA customer, I have read that customer on soooooo many legs and I find it interesting enough to pick up for about ten minutes and then put it right back. I would not subscribe to it.
As someone said, if I ever need info on Miami condos, Brazilian steakhouses, Karras seminars, placing my logo on merchandise, or articles on Gloria Estefan's Miami, that's my mag. Otherwise, it's not really that exciting.
