Airline Timetables Disappear, Airline Dorks Die a Little Inside

Frequent Flyer A

Southwest has announced that it will finally be ending production of one of the greatest airline dork tools ever invented, the timetable. After the current issue, Southwest timetables will no longer be printed, and that means that there won’t be any printed timetables left anywhere in the US. What a sad day, particularly for a dork like me.

The non-dorks probably can’t understand the impact that airline timetables had on my life. They were instrumental in cementing my love for the industry. In fact, when my parents arranged from professional family photos in 1989, I insisted on having this shot taken with my beloved timetables.
