    This was the e-vite I received a year or so ago, for the Chicago launch event of the newly reformatted Sky Magazine. Enjoy!

    She was at the event, but most of the attendees were advertisers and corporate travel dept. people, so Mrs. Gargoyle and I were the only ones who recognized her. It was unfortunate, DL flew her in but didn't capitalize on her charming presence. She was very briefly introduced (or rather, just mentioned) and that's it. We chatted with her, as did some DL people, but no one else really spoke to her or was excited by her presence; she politely stood quietly off to the side.

    If you want to actually bump into here, try flying lots of FLL-ATL. We have seen here there a couple of times and managed to chat with her for a few minutes one of those times. She is a very pleasant young lady.

    Now this is interesting- this seems to be the site of a web designer preparing an official DL Deltalina site. Has this been launched yet????

    I am sure this will be a secondary topic of the thread, but did Sky ever launch as the mass media magazine? I find it interesting enough to accept in my mailbox, just not at a cost. [​IMG]

    Right, I forgot all about that.
    At the launch event they did say that was the plan. It was going to be in newsstands, Borders :), etc.

    I didn't know DL created a new magazine for newstands! Are they serious? I read the magazine in the air, but that's it. Of course, had I known, I'd have driven down to ORD to meet Deltalina!

    They switched publishers, design and concept, but kept the same magazine name. The intention was to create a magazine that would be of the quality and interest level of things like Travel and Leisure, and that could stand on its own.

    They did say they were going to try newsstand/bookstore sales, reach the once or twice a year fliers, but I haven't seen it yet.

    I remember them saying they were going to / looking into publishing SKY as a regular publication. Chris McGinness polled "The Ticket" readers about their opinion. My thought was, "Good Luck. I wouldn't pay for it." I have a sub for Travel & Leisure and Islands but those were complimentary.

    Oops, minor thread hijack there.

    I don't recall even picking it out of the seat pocket more than once or twice over the last year. Has it become anything more than just a house organ and vehicle for advertisers?

    It helps people who are bored or nervous to kill time on the flight. For that reason, they went to articles and content which is short, graphical, and easy to digest. They do get some good, interesting content in there.
