We need to regularly check for changes to airline schedule data from Low Cost Carriers. Their schedules are available as pdf files, and as far as we can find out, no other way that is freely available.

We have tried a few different software packages that Convert PDF to Excel files, but they do not appear to be intended to really obtain the data, creating up to 50 columns on some occasions.
We want to automate this process if at all possible.
Can anyone recommend the best approach that will obtain consistent results and output a table of data, assuming that the pdf is formatted the same every time.
