Cover Battle: Fortune or T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features Fortune taking on T: The New York Times Style Magazine. Fortune wants to discuss Chinese-made airplanes, which made us wonder — does anyone actually care where the plane they’re in was produced? That would seem to be low on the list of concerns. Typically, this is what we’re asking while flying: 1) Am I going to die? 2) How much longer is the flight? 3) What was that noise? 4) Why aren’t I drinking more?

For its design cover, T went with a great illustration of man standing on a raised surface that seems to lead to nowhere. The platform looks nice and all, but we doubt it comes with wi-fi.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
