This one's worth downloading for the awesome, spanning panoramic photos with most articles. March's issue includes looks at Hong Kong, the jumbo jet hostel in Amsterdam, and Lufthansa's aviation innovation thinktank. It is also free and downloadable from iTunes HERE.
Malaysia Airlines Going Places:
Believe it or not, Malaysia Airlines was the first to add an iPad version of their magazine. Going Places however sticks pretty well to the magazine layout, even including those final few pages of in-flight entertainment options, like what movies are playing on your flight (or ones you aren't on, because you're reading this from your couch). Get the app free HERE on iTunes.
Okay, so this is one of the coolest in-flight magazine apps that's been released. First, you enter ANA's "Virtual Airport," and indeed that is the name of the app. From the menu, designed like an airport environment, you can bounce over to read the bilingual Wingspan features, check out their Facebook, book more flights on their website, watch videos, check your mileage balance, and wait with bated breath for an 787 updates. Download it for free on iTunes HERE.
TAP Portugal Up: TAP's iPad magazine offering is destination-heavy. The March issue along features the Estoril Coast, Switzerland, Pantanal, Copenhagen, Lisboa and Estrada Real, and since everything (mostly) is bilingual, there's enough pages to keep you entertained. It also promises iPad-exclusive content, but we've not had a chance to compare the print and electronic versions quite yet.

It's not an airline's magazine per se, but it is a magazine you find on airplanes, and often it's more chewed up than the rest of the contents of the seatback pocket. Thus, it earns a mention here since SkyMall has gone the extra distance to make your browsing of Harry Potter's Hogwarts wand, back massagers and motorized tie hangars much easier.
