I recall US carriers in general where stingy mailing out (AA, HP and UA sent me a couple, WN was always nice about it). The nicest one I ever received was from Canadian. Sabena and Swissair I recall sent me a combined one. The China Airlines one literally was a brochure. When my parents moved homes I found out all my timetables from the 90’s had been thrown out.

It was a weekend at ZRH and several planespotters had gathered there to take pictures of a Virgin A346, the landing had been announced via Internet. So while it landed all the planespotters took their pictures very calmly except for one planespotter, who almost freaked out when he realized what he had spotted in the final approach. It turned out that this planespotter had no access to the online information. One of the planespotters, who knew about the arrival of this rarity posted that he somehow envied this planespotter, since he missed this excitement when you did not know what you will see at the airport...
