Curious. I read in the most recent Linn's newsletter that the USPS is going to issue two new Forever Airmail stamps. So, is this going to be considered a Forever commemorative stamp or is it going to be considered an airmail stamp? Comments?

Commemorative ... commemorating what would be the 100th anniversary of airmail service.

That's what I was thinking, too. The article seems to suggest as such.

Yes, it is a Commemorative. The stamp designs are very nice.
I believe they will be well received by collectors.

I think there could be a bit of confusion with the general public

I've seen as many negative comments about the design as positive, or more. I get the design, and it is nice to see a stamp that at least looks engraved. The design matches the era it commemorates.
