Sun Oct 12, 2003 6:34 am

Yes or no? Thought I heard a few months ago, that they would come September.

DL doesn't use with the printing by the timetables anymore and it was loss of those money with more than of millions dollars at DL. Maybe wait to see what is situation was going on at DL. So if you would like writing email to Delta and find out exactly for the information with the timetables. Thanks!

Not true!!! In September, I had printed September 2003 timetables in the aircraft cabins. A FA told me they were 'back by overwhelming demand' - and are the same data, but they do not have the airline hub maps, flight number indexes and page one of this new edition just jumps right into Aberdeen UK's flights (to save paper).

Because of the economics of the industry, I only took one for my collection (usually I take a bunch).

However, I was on a about 12 DL mainline flights in September and this far into October and only about half of the flights had the timetable in the traditional slot - the rest had the credit card application. It may be working its way through the route or be by request only.

DL does have the system timetable back. Just the flights. Not much more.

I picked up a printed DL timetable in the beginning of September this year. I was surprised to see them, but very happy. Gave me some good reading material for the flight.

Where did you get it with their timetables was come from? Maybe that Delta didn't not put it up front of the ticket counter either and what is situation was going on with DL? Maybe I will have writing emailed to my friend at FLL. Thanks!

I had the timetables in aircraft leaving SEA, GRR, CVG, and ATL.

But I also had flights from GSO, ATL, CVG, GRR that did not have them!

They must just be working their way back into distribution.
