No parlez vous, senor!

Timetables are perfect toilet reading, IMO! You can look them over for as long as you need, but you never have to finish in the middle of a book chapter or magazine article.
Try it sometime, Mikey!

Add me to the schedule-reading-in-the-bathroom crew. And NW doesn't even have a printed schedule.

That is a novel way to dump Delta Air Lines.

http://www.systransoft.com/ )

I am sorry. I surrender. I give up

Timetables

Am I the last to know?

Always, the monday after daylight savings time starts, I pick up a new timetable. This time, the FA told me no more timetables. Is this really true? They have been invaluable when a problem happens on a flight and I need to plan my rerouting or options. This Friday, I am leaving out of IAD (an airport which I try to avoid) and don't know the various options I might have if my mtg goes short or long. Only option is to print out IAD-CVG, IAD-ATL, IAD-MCO, CVG-MCO, and ATL-MCO flight schedules and carry around with me. This doesn't make a lot of sense. At least print out the timetables and provide to Elite members.

If you carry and palm pilot or an Ipaq you can download them from thier website and they work great. They are also more up to date than the paper version as they are updated when you Sync with your computer.

Unfortunately, I still like to use the good old daytimer original pocket size. I may actually have to break down and get a palm pilot; drats. Can anyone provide recommendations?

Marc

PS Moderators, please don't shoot this off to another board as being off topic since this request is due to Delta taking away timetables.

Not to worry. This is definitely on-topic

Marq - Look at the Dell Axim.. Best price/feature.

The PDA thing is nice, but it's usually MUCH faster to use the timetables. Especially when trying to quickly see which flights don't fly on certain days.

Also, it's really nice to look at your destination city, and see what other cities offer connections. Something you can't do with the PDA.

Here's a hint though. Download the PDF and store it on your pocket PC/laptop, then you can use it to browse, much like you did with the printed version (it's the same thing).

Mike

PS OT- I left my new Dell 400Mhz Axim Pocket PC with a 256MB SD card in the seatback pocket. Neither CHS or ATL lost and found have seen it. Guess someone scored.

I have used both the Palm and the Ipaq and both work about the same and the views are very much alike. I like the Ipaq because of other applications that I use. I will miss the paper version as well I also carried one with me while traveling.

Back to the timetable issue for a moment....
yes, it was posted somewhere on this board quite awhile back that the 1st quarter issue was the last. However, can someone tell me how to figure mileage on the electronic timetable??? I can't find it. I like to calculate mileage on my own spreadsheet. I guess I'll need to keep one of the old paper copies for mileage only unless someone has found it somewhere else.
