PDF format for download or the regular flight schedule display.

They don't seem to have one that can be downloaded to a Palm device, do they?

Quoting Flyf15 (Reply 4):

No, they do not and this is a bit frustrating. Yes, you can download PDFs, but they have one for each schedule period and for example pulling all of them between now and 1/9/09 would require downloading 17 PDFs. I hope they can work with GoldenWare (the folks that distribute the other electronic schedules - http://www.goldenware.com/productsDownload.html) to get this done!

You can subscribe to eSkyGuide yourself (http://www.eskyguide.com/) and it does include WN flights.

Keep in mind that of those 17 PDFs (and actually there should be even more because the currently effective schedule is not present in the list of PDFs -- the first one listed is not effective until 9/0208) many are in effect for only a day or 2 -- primarily holiday periods; in fact 13 of the 17 PDFs listed are valid for 2 or fewer days.

You could probably get by quite nicely by downloading only the 4 long-term PDFs -- there's usually about 1 per month -- like 9/02-9/26, 9/28-10/30, 11/02-11/24, and 12/04-12/23. Furthermore, only one of those, 11/02-11/24 is a MAJOR schedule (that particular one is issued due to the end of Daylight Savings Time) where WN has added and cancelled a lot of flights and changed most of the flight numbers ("optimized" the schedule). There are about 3 or 4 of these major reworks per year; WN issues a press release and a schedule recap on these occasions. They also still print (actual paper and ink!) Flight Schedules to coincide with these major schedule changes. (Pick one up at the airport.)

I imagine at some point, the hardcopy Schedule will again disappear and additional e-sked's will be available.
