The kids and I are off that weekend, so maybe I'll bring them along. Think my 737-700 wingtips would sell?  Big grin

OPNLguy,

Hey, once it is a done deal that you're coming out to the LAX show let me know, I would like to touch base with you and chat for awhile.

Great news! Nice to hear Southwest listened to what customers want, instead of deciding for them like so many other airlines.

The paper timetable is the ONLY way to decipher Southwest's huge and unwieldy point-to-point network. It's a great resource. I only wish it showed aircraft type on each route but hey, you can't have everything.  Smile

Once the schedules return, that will leave Southwest, Delta and (for the time being) AirTran as the only US carriers still offering a printed timetable. Meanwhile almost every other airline in existence (KLM, Aer Lingus, SAS and Varig notwithstanding) still has a paper schedule.

B6 and DH still offer printed timetables, albeit abridged versions of what both used to offer.

Are you sure about B6, I thought they stopped 2 years ago. Have you picked one up at the TPA ticket counter?  Smile

I'll be at the LAX show for sure.......although I'm not sure I'll identify myself.  Wink/being sarcastic

I wonder if it's too late to haul over a few boxes of old timetables and trinkets.

The timetable may not show aircraft type, but here's a hint. You have a real good chance at being on a 737.

TxAg,

Been hoping you'd show up..

Be interested in your thoughts on the SWA/ATA deal...

One of the news articles some weeks ago said that a retired SWA exec was going to go up there and assist ATA, but nobody has heard who it might be...

Doesn't ATA still offer printed timetables? I picked one up from them last March.
