Airline Weekly FAQ / Terms of Service

Focus and Methodology

Why should I subscribe to Airline Weekly?

By combining our own extensive industry experience with rigorous financial and quantitative analysis along with access to top executives at nearly every major travel company, we create comprehensive newsletters that drill deeply into aviation trends that shape the future of travel. We use tools such as financial and economic analysis and proprietary survey data to support our qualitative observations and forecasts for the industry. We are intellectually honest and transparent with our assumptions.

Our subscribers come from within the travel ecosystem and include executives, marketers, strategists, technologists, and sales professionals from online distributors, hospitality companies, airlines, cruises, destination marketing organizations, tours, and activities companies, technology providers, and others. We also have many investors (both public and private equity/venture capital) and investment banks/equity research providers subscribing to our research.

Who conducts your research and who writes your newsletters?

Airline Weekly is a subscriber-supported publication, paid for by readers who want a more interesting, more valuable read about the airline business. Each Monday, Airline Weekly newsletters includes; who’s flying where, new marketing approaches, fleet, finance, and key airline and airport data. Most importantly, Airline Weekly readers enjoy insightful analysis and new ideas found nowhere else. We are actively adding to our research and editorial team with a focus on building a cohesive unit rather than using the siloed approach many firms often utilize. Our newsletters are researched and written by Jay Shabat.

How often do Airline Weekly newsletters get published?

We publish a new Airline Weekly newsletter each Monday. This includes 48 issues throughout the year, with two two-week breaks: in late August and late December.

Can I see a sample newsletter(s) to understand the value and quality of the newsletter?

Why do we use emails as usernames?

Can I share my newsletter with my colleagues and professional network?

No, each single subscription is intended for single use, and we monitor the sharing of newsletters to enforce our copyright licenses.
