Still doesn't show certain airlines, just did a quick search and couldn't find AA, KL or VS. Amadeus has become big a piece of crap...  vomit

Agreed. Its worthless now.

Anyone know any good timetables that are un-biased?

Don't airlines have to pay to be on such systems? If so, then it could well be that they simply decided to stop being on such systems, in which case it might not be Amadeus's fault at all.

The still available old Amadeus timetable. They removed the link, not the tool:

That is the old link, the timetable is the new form. It only searches certain airlines.

Yeah, I was looking and American isnt on there. I am guessing they are still getting all the schedules on-line.

@ Pe@rson:

Yes, they have to pay for being bookable through systems like Amadeus. Though I highly doubt that airlines like AA and KL have left it, because if so, a HUGE number of travel agencies (at least in Germany) wouldn't be able to book them, which surely would mean a loss for these airlines.

KLM for example often offers relatively cheap fares throughout Europe and the world departing Germany with connection in AMS, and they won't get all the pax if the only way they could be booked would be via their website, hotline or at the airport. Many pax still prefer to book their flights in a travel agency (especially on long-haul routes).

There must be another reason why AA/KL etc. aren't displayed in Amadeus' online timetable any more.

It works perfectly fine if you click the "information" tab on top, and then "timetable".

Calm down Udo - what's shown on Amadeus.net is, for commercial reasons, significantly LESS than what is available on the commercial system. The timetables shown on Amadeus.net (for FREE) are only those carriers that provide their schedules direct to Amadeus, rather than via 3rd party distributors (who offer similiarly services to Amadeus.net, but for which they charge fees). So if you really hate Amadeus.net, go pay OAG.com their 20 bucks a month fees, and be happy.

Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 3):

It is not Amadeus' fault at all. The 750 airlines that provide schedules to Amadeus, and the 450 bookable in Amadeus, are all still here, don't worry. They just cannot all be shown on Amadeus.net for commercial reasons, very much not in Amadeus' control. So AA and KL and all the others are very much saleable in 1A to travel agents and airline offices (over 200,000 locations), just not to freeloaders on the web  Smile. We work all the time on getting carriers to provide schedules direct to Amadeus, as this method is more accurate (updates are sent real time, rather than in a weekly update), and any that implement this method should become available on Amadeus.net in due course.

I just had an email from amadeus stating that they are only temporarily reducing the # airlines that they display. All will be reinstated shortly.

AF-KL will be on amadeus soon, since both company will use the Amadeus system only (on every part, from booking till check-in) , actually my mum is returning from an 11 day Paris trip, were she learned how the amadeus system works. She was one of the 2 KL people from holland wich learned how to handle with the system (more than other people, because ofcourse she isn't the only one wich will use it)


so soon they should be in...

I think PK was never shown, even in the old timetable... have they stopped subscribing to Amadeus?

I agree.. the old version was better

Not quite till check-in (yet !) - Amadeus will be used for reservations, fares and ticketing (as AF does already), but CORDA/CODECO will continue to be used for inventory and check-in, until AF and KL decide whether or not to replace CORDA/CODECO and Alpha3/Gaetan with a single system.

HAH ! I'd say the same about you, only so far no company has been reckless enough to employ you ! :P
