Airlines In The Yellowpages - Curious...

So dig out whatever branded yellow-pages edition you have under your pile of old AW&ST issues and open it up to the airline page. I'm curious to know what airlines you find missing from your book?

Here in PHX, noticable are the absence of both CO and DL from yellow and white pages listings. Everyone else is there, some with nice boxed-ads as well. I can quickly dial Philippine, Malaysian, even South African's toll free numbers, but not two carriers representing about 44 daily flights from Sky Harbor.  boggled 

Are airlines like CO and DL jumping the gun a bit by assuming we are such a web-based society that they don't need to publish their phone number anymore in the 5th largest metro area in the USA? Are they assuming that anyone finding a phone listing in the book is just looking for Flifo and not a booking? It seems to me that CO and DL would miss-out on some local market O&D consumers but not even publishing a phone number in a market by which neither are considered "front of mind" players. Perhaps CO/DL are just counting on inbound traffic from the rest of their system in an area like this and don't want to foot the bill for a listing (which indeed can be expensive when you consider all the brands and markets in the country that aren't major operations for each).

Anyway, it's of no consequence to me, but I'd still love to know what y'all find out there in your own local books.

Cheers!

Perhaps it's for the same reason it's nearly impossible to find an airline phone number on the web site. They just don't want us to call!

That said, I'm surprised there is not ad with even a web address.

I had that problem over the holidays. DL doesn't have a listing in the Colorado yellowpages either. I did find it in the white pages, however.

I don't have access to the internet at all times, nor do I want to have access. I do have a cell phone with me usually, and I can simply call for updates or information. Knowing where to get a phone number would be a good thing!
