Downloadable ST timetable vs bookable flights?

After downloading the September version of the Skyteam downloadable timetable I was happy to see that OK will continue PRG-ZRH-PRG with 11 flights per week through the next winter (essentially same as during summer 2011). Last winter they had a reduced schedule with only 6 flights per week.

However, when I attempted to look them up in ExpertFlyer, there were no flights at all loaded after 1 November. Also on the OK webpage, I couldn't find a single flight. Also no success when trying a dummy booking on expedia. Really the only other information confirming the information from the Skyteam timetable was this http://airlineroute.net/2011/08/16/ok-w11update1/ which states the same as Skyteam and also mentions they are in GDS ... but where?

OK has been cutting a lot of flights lately. They are scaling back at high speed. I would not be surprised if the Skyteam timetable is a bit behind these facts.

In fact, take a look at this: Prague-Zurich has been cancelled as per 30OKT2011.

Very, very sad. CSA used to be my preferred airline flying out of AMS in the direction of (south) eastern Europe. Now...well...they are worthless.

Very sad, indeed - and very surprising, only 12 days after announcing they will increase the frequency ... this does not look like sound management

I still can't comprehend their decision to pull out of the UK market entirely. Were they really struggling against U2?

I've just received an e-mail from CSA's Zurich representative (since 01 September a GSA) confirming Xandrios' information. CSA will not serve ZRH during the winter 11/12.

Excellent service from the GSA (answering e-mails on Sundays within a few hours!) - but very sad and hard to understand decision.
