Playboy: airplane reading material?

Magazines are one of those on-board amenities that disappeared from domestic flights in the U.S. a long time ago. But many international airlines still offer a selection of reading material that includes newspapers, business, fashion and sports magazines, especially in business class.

On a recent airberlin flight I was a bit surprised to see Playboy on the counter as one of the options and asked about that when I visited the company’s headquarters in Berlin.

My hosts were a bit surprised at my surprise but told me that the cover of the issue I saw on the plane is a special airline cover that stays the same for each issue – and that Playboy is the magazine they need to replace most often.
