I've been playing on Airline Mogul on and off. What's the difference?

Two major differences that I can see. Played AM a bunch a did a couple of free trials on AS.

The scheduling in AS is more realistic. IIRC, the scheduling includes specific departure times and generally you try to schedule flight time for most of the day, then fit in the maintenance overnight. With AM, the goal is to keep the plane in the air as long as possible and timing is not built into the game. In AM also, maintenance charges are automatically applied to each aircraft using a proprietary formula that you can't see. So, 1 737 in AS might be utilized for 15 hours (flight and ground time) but in AM it will be close to 24 hours.

The second is the delivery of aircraft is more realistic in AS. In AM, you order a bunch of aircraft and 1-2 game days later, the manufactured suddenly delivers 200 frames. With AS, orders are delivered on a schedule. So if you order 20 frames, you'll receive them over a time frame, so you may not be able to start up new routes with all of them right away.

I like the idea of AM, but every game is always a race to see who can set up the most 99% utilized planes from the largest 6 hubs in the game environment.
