Most of them. Go by the ticket counter.

I know that AirTran still does, and Northworst, and Continental. I imagine AA, UA, US, etc, still do, also.

Here are the ones I know of:
AirTran
Southwest
Delta
ATA
ANA
As for CO, they do not,AFAIK.

Also a few really small Canadian carriers.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Aer Lingus quit printing them a couple of years back.

Much to my suprise, I was amazed to see one at the airport recently, in a new super - small format, rather like those discount coupon booklets.

Print is obviously on the way back.

Here's what I know about who DOESN'T print timetables:

In the USA:

American, Northwest, United, US Airways, America West, Continental, Frontier and JetBlue do NOT print them anymore. AirTran, Southwest, ATA and Delta do.

In Europe:

British Airways (they still print a very limited amount for their frequent fliers, although they don't give any information other than schedules and are IMPOSSIBLE to find) and KLM no longer print them. Everyone else does, although many airlines are paring them down and cutting out information like aircraft seating plans.

In Asia/Middle East:

Everyone still prints them - and they're very fancy. It's a matter of prestige for those airlines, a form of advertising.

In Australia:

Qantas no longer prints timetables.

With the internet, I would think it would be much cheaper to put them on-line rather than printing thousands of books many of which go into the trash can.

As Senior Timetables Officer in British Airways in 1974, I produced the first ever BA timetable, merging the flights of BEA, BOAC, and BA Regional Divisons.

The last BA timetable covered the period 28 October 2001 to 30 March 2002.

BA still produce current schedules in two electronic versions, saved as pdf files.

A Printer actually does produce printed versions, presumably from pdfs. He charges £2.50 a timetable.

Aloha still prints timetables, though they're a little less colorful than before.

Olympic and Aegean should also be included in the European airlines that still print their timetables.

There are also electronic timetables from various airlines and alliances available, which are quite good. Oneworld's electronic timetable also provides meal information for some airlines and AA seatmaps.

I'm not too up to date on airline timetables, but in PHX the city prints a timetable of all the non-stop and connecting routes that go in and out of PHX on a monthly basis. Pretty handy thing to have if you ask me, and if you do alot of traveling in and out of PHX it's more conveniant than a timetable for each and every different airline.  Smile

737Captain,

I picked up a Metro Washington Airport Authority flight guide yesterday, and it is good because it has both Dulles and National flights listed.

The thing that sucks about airport flight guides is the accuracy usually leaves a lot to be desired.

MEA prints very nice timetables that even shows interline connections to many cities around the world through other carriers.

Airlines that still print timetables in Canada include:

WestJet - I'd hazard a guess and say they at least break even on their publication...it's 1/2 advertising.
CanJet
Air North
Canadian North (Last issue, March 2003 however)
Jetsgo (They print a mini version, not listing all flights)
...there may be more, but certainly not AC.

SQ, EK, AT, IR still produce a printed version of their timetables. It's such a pity that other companies don't. I guess a good compromise would be to produce them on suscription, they could even make a profit out of it.

Becoming a rare find in North America, as everything is being downloaded on line.

Most of the Asian/Middle East carriers still publish. Was at an travel trade fair in the UK while on a layover, and picked up the following.

Emirates
Qatar
Kuwait
Saudi Arabian
Singapore
Thai
Korean
MEA
Egyptair
MAS

I was at PDX last week and only saw WN. DL prints them but only for flights out of PDX. I believe it is the same for SEA. I did not see a system wide book for DL. NW printed only direct flights by code i.e.:

PDX MSP 757 1430 1900 0 L/S

They also included QX and a few other commuter carrier. I have not seen those for about two years. Since we started getting service from MX and LH, we have not had their timetables either. And nothing from CO, HP, or F9.

GO CANUCKS!!
