US Airways - July 2014 - (Page 9)

From the Editor embark It's All Good ★ COVER PHOTO BY RICHARD TAYLOR/SIME/ESTOCK It's been said that inflight publications are the last bastion of the general interest magazine. There's credence to that notion. Consider this issue, for example. There are stories on travel, food, spirits, sports, technology, fashion, health, gear, and adventure. That's a broad mix. Think about the publications you regularly read. A good guess would be that their focus is on only one of the topics noted above. The top 20 magazines in U.S. circulation are for the most part - and I'll use a shop term here - vertical titles. That is, the publication is designed for a targeted reader group. Some of the leaders in this top tier are AARP, Better Homes and Gardens, Game Informer, National Geographic, People, Sports Illustrated, The Story Behind the Stories By Lance Elko Cosmopolitan, and Prevention. Each of these appeals to a particular demographic group, passion, or interest. Editors of inflight magazines are charged with addressing a vast swath of consumers who represent a full spectrum of interests. And there's a special kind of bonus in that - for the reader (you're bound to learn something new in an area you rarely explore) and for the editors. I've been fortunate enough to have invested more than 17 years at the helm, and I count myself blessed to be educated monthly. When assigning and editing stories (by some of the same writers who contribute to the magazines mentioned earlier), I find myself asking "Huh, who knew?" And there's a certain kind of joy in that.
