This isn't that big of a deal... they update these online at least monthly and sometimes more.

(Sigh) I do wish Northwest would reintroduce paper timetables. The thin little editions they were printing pre 9/11 couldn't have cost that much to produce. It's much nicer (and easier) to have something in hand when you're looking for a flight. Scrolling endlessly through an unwieldy PDF document just isn't the same.

Almost every foreign airline in the world - including in Europe, where online booking is as common as it is in the US - still publishes a printed timetable. Only Delta, AirTran and Aloha still publish them.

Doesn't WN still print paper timetables? They stopped for a quick minute, but then restarted, right?

I have not seen any paper timetables printed lately at all. They have a lot of other promotional materials which they print that may look like the old time table.
They should bring it back and earn more potential customers in a small way.

Actually, NW's last paper timetable was printed in the summer of 2002.

WN did not print a paper timetable for Oct.- Dec. 2004 as an 'experiment'. Whether they will offer a paper timetable for Jan.- March 2005 remains to be seen.

I too wish the company would print them again as they helped us assist our passengers on board. By stopping the print of them has saved close to a million dollars a year, with those numbers, it just makes sense.

I down load a table to my Palm to use on board now.

Southwest did not print an October-December issue as a trial balloon. From what I've heard, the response from travelers was overwhelmingly in favor of bringing it back. Southwest's point-to-point network is so dense that you need a timetable just to decode it. I'm hoping they bring the paper schedules back after the first of the year.

I'm grateful to Delta for continuing to print a slim direct-flight-only timetable. In this day in age there's no need for a giant 500-page schedule (back in the 1990s when everyone was making tons of money, United was printing timetables that looked like "War and Peace") but a simple listing of flight times and equipment is very useful. Perhaps with Northwest's entry into SkyTeam they'll consider it, although I'm not holding my breath.

The one airline that can keep its timetables in Continental. They used to print these horrible 'pocket' schedules that was difficult just to hold, let alone read.

Meant to add Independence Air to the short list of US carriers still publishing a schedule - although I'm not sure we'll see too many more Indy Air timetables. Get 'em while you can.

I agree with everyone here... PDF-based timetables suck! I like to have a tangible paper timetable but no, they cost too much for the airlines. Angry I think the airlines should have viewed timetables as a unavoidable operational necessity not able to be sacrificed. However in this ever cash-strapped industry I guess it was unavoidable. How come foreign airlines still publish them, do they have government subsidies or something?

Foreign carriers still print timetables for a number of reasons:

- in many countries, online booking and computer ownership aren't nearly as common
- they're a sign of prestige... look at Middle Eastern carriers like Emirates, Qatar Airways and Gulf Air, who print very high-quality schedules on glossy paper, complete with full-color route maps and aircraft diagrams
- they recognize that most people would rather have a schedule in hand than on an electronic screen

With that said, there are some foreign airlines (KLM, Varig, Qantas, SAS) who have also stopped printing timetables.

American Airlines announced last summer that they would begin to offer a printed timetable again, but to the best of my knowledge this never happened. There's just no money for any extras right now, no matter how convenient they might be.

wooooey.. Now DSM isn't the only Iowa airport to get mainline service. In the late 90's Sioux City used to get 2 DC-9's / day to MSP, along with various Saab and RJ service.

Ok, MSP-SJC service is increased to 3x daily and NW1500 is downgraded from an A319 to D9S. MHT-MSP is 1x/day when the AM 9E flight ends.

727LOVER,

I just picked up a current AirTran timetable this past Friday. The smaller print underneath the Endangered Species line mentions (but without it outright stating the obvious) that future timetables can be found under www.airtran.com. Unless people write FL and protest, the November timetable may very well be their last paper timetable.

Actually CID has had mainline 4x a week for a while, Allegiant MD-83's have been doing LAS-CID.

Well, that's the winter schedule. If they would only boost the number of SEA-DTW flights year-round.
