I asked FLIGHT that very question. The reply was that it is not policy to display the most up to date issue, but merely to give a sample of the product.

They suggested I buy a copy instead. I happen to subscribe anyway.

Thumbs down

Looks like they changed their policy sudenly.
And their web site is made to show current info not just a sample. They can do what they want, but a simple info on a web page that it's not going to be up-to-date any longer would have helped. I'm just disapointed to be treated like that.
Thanks for your info

Thumbs up

they still update the jobs page every week, as for the rest it was pretty useless anyway, they'd only show the uninteresting articles.

Let's face it, Flight lost touch with those who actually fly for a living years ago. It is the world's most boring magazine.

If Situations Vacant were removed it would be bankrupt in a month. As it is the 'bosses daughter' has to edit it as they can't afford anyone else.

It is pitched at the men in grey suits who they think might be interested in industry gossip that the rest of the industry knew weeks ago. And the Asian and American markets that they think might generate better profits than the flat European markets, who have long since become bored with the endless pandering to the above markets.

Sadly I'm even sad enough to subscribe to it, so I speak with weekly authority!

Cool

I suspect you'll find the reason may be due to the workload there at present.

The next issue should make obvious why some things might have slipped or been left alone for a few weeks.

BB you`re dead right, I wonder why I still subscribe as well.
Possibly because the answer to M0.78s Q is 4 in my case.
Though the accident digests are quite informative the rest`s a comic. Can`t wait for the next guided missile directory.

I got my present job from a Flight advert. That was in the days when Flight International was essential reading for everyone in the industry except Astronauts. Mainly because the actual salaries were given in the adverts so you could compare them with your own. Now I read someone else's Flight every week because it isn't worth buying. After checking the jobs pages I always go straight to the... er, um, er, well I look at the pictures anyway. That last Missile Directory WAS rivetting reading wasn't it?

Have subscribed to Flight International continuously since 1968 and had it delivered to many countries but find that now it is but a shadow of its former self.

Question

As a wannabe, I agree that Flight can be a terminally boring read except for the jobs at the back. However, I wonder what would the more experienced members of the industry deem to be the better read for someone such as myself. Is there another 'industry' mag that could fill me in any better ?

The owners of flight international have decided not to have a flight international website anymore as part of a cost cutting excersise.

They have come to the conclusion that people are reading the website for free rather than buy a magazine.

Finally 1+1=2 is reacing the .com publishing industry.

To be honest I always thought that most of Flight International prints outspreading for free. They call our airline every year and just asking how many copies we would like to recieve (for free of course).

If Copenhagen is right its a sad day for 'Flight International'. It can not be an easy task to fill a 'weekly mag' with quality articles all the time. I hope they rethink and keep the web for instant news and produce a fatter quality mag (for those quiet moments down route).

Unhappy

I remember filling out a survey for them a year or so ago pretty much saying what everyone has said on this thread so far. Hasn't seemed to have made any difference as it's as dead a read now as it was then. As the rest have said; if it wasn't for the ads in the back...Anyway, I'm not renewing my subscription.

I too have subscribed for many years, but still like to look at their web site sometimes.

The magazine has certainly not been as good in recent years, if they are going to stop having the web site as well, maybe time to give them away.......

Air Transport Intelligence reports today:

Reed Aerospace names new editors
London (06Jun01, 17:49 GMT, 178 words)

ATI publisher Reed Aerospace has appointed two of its existing editors to the positions of editor of Flight International and the new post of group editor.

Effective immediately ATI editor Kieran Daly is promoted to group editor with overall editorial responsibility for ATI, the weekly Flight International, and the monthly Airline Business.

At the same time Murdo Morrison is promoted from being deputy editor of Flight International to become its editor, reporting to Daly who in turn reports primarily to the publisher of the magazine titles, Allan Winn, and also to ATI publisher Dominic Feltham. In the short term Daly will continue to edit ATI in addition to his new duties.

Morrison joined Flight International as deputy editor in January this year after being editor of another Reed Business Information title Motor Trader. He replaces Carol Reed who left the company recently.

Daly has edited ATI since its 1997 launch after previously being editor of Air Navigation International and holding several posts at Flight International.

Airline Business will continue to be edited by Kevin O’Toole reporting to Daly.
