I was just wondering if anyone knows if airlines still print timetables to offer to the public. I'm assuming they do but I've never bothered to ask for any from the airlines. On Dec 21 I'll be flying out of JFK to LIS on TWA so I'm assuming that if I have the time I can get some from different airlines at their offices in LIS on my return flight (I don't feel like going around to the different terminals at JFK that place is such a mess).

I'm not sure all airlines do, but I've recently seen Swissair, Sabena, Lufthansa, Northwest and Delta print timetables.

They pretty much all still do, althought they're pretty slimmed down now. Most of them have taken out connections and just put single flights in.

I hope they still print timetables, or I've been collecting the wrong thing for years!

United has a verrrrry comprehensive timetable. I think the best one of all the U.S. majors. It has airplane diagrams, aircraft, flight times, flight miles, meal service, airport codes, and all connections. Wonderful.

AA stopped printing system timetables during the Robert Crandall era. He figured AA could make a few more dollars that way. I haven't seen a city edition AA timetable in several years, so I don't know if those are gone or not.

WN still prints a system timetable, or at least they did as of a few months ago.

US put on out in 99, because I still have a copy of it. Don't know if they are still doing it or not.

When I was a kid I loved nothing better than to step into a travel agency, or even better a big hotel, and get a handful of airline timetables. It didn't matter whose they were, as I couldn't go anywhere anyway. I'd look through them and dream about going to some of the places someday, preferably in a 707.

Northwest and KLM still do.

United must waste a lot of money on theirs because it has way too much information than the average traveller wants. It is like a book almost.

Most of the airlines from Asia and Europe have good timetables, but the timetables for US airlines taht are offered in Europe are pretty small/bad

As Contrails said, American stopped printing timetables toward the end of Crandall's career, switching to only having the electronic timetable. The paper timetable has since been brought back, but in a slimmed down version. Now it is a lot like Delta's, with only non-stop and direct flights, and directions on how to schedule a connection. It's a lot nicer, I think, because the size is a lot more convenient to carry around. It still has all the info. (aircraft type, mileage, meal service, IFE info., etc.), just doesn't list all 15000 connecting options for flights between NYC and LA.

I know American does still print them, I have one with a picture of the "new" 737-800 on it. United still prints their jumbo timetable. Remember, they can't limit their timetables to being internet-only, as not everyone has a computer or access to a computer (surprisingly enough).

As Tg747-300 stated, most of Asian carriers publish printed timetables, and KAL and JAL publish 2 type of timetables, international and domestic. If you can get domestic timetables of Japanese carriers you will find you're so interested. Type of aircraft, BN-2 with only 9 seats to gigantic 747Ds, or Prices. I'd found that ANA Sapporo-Naha oneway costs more than SEL-KIX-Europe returns.

I have one from US airways, but I don't know whether it's 2000 edition.

Yeah United still prints the best and most comprehensive timetable (for a US carrier) out there.

U.S. "scheduled" airlines are required by their operating certificate to publish a timetable of flights. Now, whether the FAA looks the other way when a carrier opts not to, is another issue.

Most certainly they do.

I carry current timetables for NW, CO, DL and FL with me at all times, and they have saved my bacon on more than a few occasions.

Air France, Qantas, British, Air New Zealand all print timetables. You can call their US 800 number and request one. They're all pretty comprehensive with flight routings and type of a/c flown, aircraft seat charts, route maps (or at least 'dots' showing their routes), what type of meal served. ANZ is a thin one (due to it's small route structure), AF's a very big one with loads of info..
