Which Printed Timetable Do You Prefer?

Sun Aug 08, 2010 8:13 pm

OAG or Amex Skyguide? I find Skyguide far superior (though they do not have timetables for other regions outside of N. america).

By the time any printed schedule has been produced and distributed it's already out of date. There are hundreds of schedule changes every day. That's why most major airlines have discontinued paper timetables.

I carry Skyguide in my bag, and it has been invaluable for commuting over the years.

Actually, they are discontinued to save money and paper! But there is nothing like having the info at your fingertips, without having to log in.

I agree with you, zrs70. They are especially useful for commuting in that sometimes I need to figure out connections involving more than one carrier in a hurry. I rather miss the printed airline timetables, but the Skyguide works well for me.

That's part of it, but going to a lot of effort to produce something that won't even be accurate the day it's issued is another reason.

I prefer AMX because it lists all the charter flights in the wintertime. One company used to print a timetable for Heathrow and Gatwick that included all freight and charter flights. Excellent material for spotting.
