1. Visiting each of the fashionable downtown airline offices to get your own copy of a real timetable, or
2. Begging your local travel agent for his used monthly edition of the global OAG Schedules 'telephone' book.
These old fashioned paper products gave complete insight into global airline scheduling, sadly lost in this digital age.
I studied them for hours, learned so much about global air travel and miss them both !!
One had to go far to maintain a fascinating hobby.
