Fort Worth (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – It’s been more than half a century since they first decorated the seat back pockets of airplanes. Currently, American Airlines’ in-flight magazine American Way is being discontinued.
An airline spokeswoman said Fort Worth-based Americans would discontinue the magazine and its online version at the end of June.

American says it is the oldest continuously published magazine in the aviation industry, dating back to 1966. AmericanWay is filled with articles about airlines, destinations to serve, and a variety of other features, yearly, quarterly, and monthly. There was also information such as a map of the airport terminal in the back. It has spawned impersonators on many other airlines.
Last year, the pandemic hastened the end of the in-flight magazine as the airline pulled the in-flight magazine to prevent it from turning pages touched by other passengers. Delta and Southwest Airlines have resigned, and British Airways has stopped stocking “high-life” paper copies while maintaining the online version.

However, the era of in-flight magazines was counted anyway, as passengers began to spend so much time browsing other information and entertainment on their mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
American said it will offer other in-flight programming to provide customers with “more what they want,” while reducing wasted paper and unnecessary weight on the plane.
