usually the online stuff is only meant for future booking, therfore i doubt that you can find it somewhere on the net.
MH should know especially the Station office, usually airlines keep so called trip files for at least 5 years. In the trip file you will find everything from Passenger list to Loadsheet and others. besides they might have old time tables. Published fares (in CRS's) can be retrieved for some two years back for reasons of refunds. However this can't be done for the timetable.

Amir, hi there,
Any idea what happens to these when the five years is up? All shredded. Is there any way one could get hold of some before they're thrown out, or would this be considered ultra secret, even after so long a time?
I find that kind of info - flight plans, fuel loads, routings (ie all the things I shouldn't know!) very interesting!

Hi Kai Tak,
You can bet on that! the trip files are ultra intressting for plane freaks like us!
I used to arrange them when i worked at the airport. I don't know for sure what they do with them, but i doubt that you can obtain them easily. Don't forget that certain insurance and flight saftey issue might even be relevant after several years. One thing is top important, in case of any plane accident or big irregularity (hijaking..etc.) the first thing to secure (as per internal airline regulations is the) is the trip file (especially for the Loading manifest and passenger name list ;NPL)
I still have the a copy of my first loadsheet, it was a manual one for a A300-600
