As a follow-up to the topic about BA's paper timetables, what other airlines have discontinued printing timetables? I heard that United stopped printing timetables, and I havent seen any at airport or city ticket office locations. Can anyone verify this fact, and what othre airlines have stopped? I have been hard pressed to find AA and US timetables (among others) as well at city offices...did they stop as well, or do they just keep them behind the counter? Can people post all the airlines they know have stopped with the published timetables? Thanks guys and gals.

Air Canada still has printed timetables, and in fact you can print one out in PDF format at their website. An Air Canada printed timetable is not much help though because their schedule changes so frequently.
BA had a printed timetable as recently as March 30, 2002. That's when the one that I have expired. I picked it up at the check in desk at San Diego.
I've had difficulty in getting timetables from South American carriers. The only one I know that prints them is Aeropostal. There's is small (pocket sized), and not helpful really. Avianca used to print an excellent one.

Air France still has them. I also got my hands on the latest jetBlue timetable and SWISS' first timetable at Dulles airport.
A few weeks ago I found a box of old timetables I collected about 15 years ago, including those from Pan Am, TWA, Eastern, Midway (original), JAT, Swissair, Piedmont & PSA (originals), USAir, Sabena, Crossair, Nordair, Canadian, United, ANA, British Airways, Republic, Finnair, and others. On the cover of an American timetable, it says "American is taking off from Nashville", promoting the now closed new hub. "More 747s to Latin America" is on the cover of one of my Pan Am timetables. It's really cool looking at some of the old routes that were around back then, such as summertime JAT DC-10s to Pittsburgh and United being the first airline to serve all 50 states; and it is kind of sad seeing Pan Am offering an evening LHR-JFK flight (103), and TWA offering their JFK-CDG flight (800).
