This week Air-Scotland.com start flights from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Mediterranean destinations using 757-200 a.c operated by Electra Airlines of Greece. Rumours have surfaced that they may also be interested in 767s for possible flights to North America.

Cannot wait for them to operate from ABZ and then we can get cheaper flights non stop and also their Tartan service ( upgraded service) will be well appreciated. Hope it all works out for them and hope to fly them soon. Three cheers to Air Scotland!!!!!

Listened to one handling agent a fortuitous time....ELD 2614 was giving details of his ETA to GLA, and the number of pax. One trusts that the passenger to cabin crew ratio increases from slightly more than 1 to 1 for future flights!
I hope there will be enough pax for both new Scottish airlines, especially as there appears to be some duplication of routes. One can easily imagine a price war which will lead to "problems" for both.

What is there inflight service suposed to be? Do they have IFE, the option of meals (like a charter) or are they strictly a LCC with the cabin crew dressed down and everything purchased?
I don't think that a LCC could truly become Scotland's national airline.
