Looks as though Air Scotland has suspended flights until the New Year. I seem to remember this is linked to their sole 757 going off for maintenance. The website promises new routes next year. Hopefully, now they have new owners, they will start to expand and move away from the 757 to a 737. Surely, it can't be easy filling a 757 during the leaner months.

lol, next they'll be saying:

Air Scotland Suspends flight forever.

meh, the airline has lasted a long time, but i think flyGlobespan has the edge. They started with B737's and i think a B737 would be better suited to them.

Not the best edit but a good idea as to what it'll look like. I prefer this livery: http://www.cardatabase.net/modifieda...earch/photo_search.php?id=00005653

Thanks

I think if they got a couple of 737s and started some unserved routes from Glasgow (dropping EDI flights altogether) then they could be onto a winner, and as flights developed they could then look at adding flights from EDI and ABZ perhaps

I think the new owners are the people who used to provide hotels for Air Scotland through Discount and Viva Holidays.

This leaves people up the swanny for their holidays. It's bad enough to get flights for Christmas and New Year, nevermind booking it, only to have it cancelled then having to find flights 6 weeks before departure. Most flights will be full, so they won't have a hope in hell of going away now. Thanks to Air Scotland, most of their passengers will not be having a nice Christmas now.

I guess this means they're not going to get the L-1011's and expand to YYZ,MIA,JFK and HAV either....

I saw the Air Scotland B757 at Edinburgh on Sunday Night 13/11/05.

I was waiting for the FR flight to DUB and the aircraft was at the neighbouring gate. It was there a while and then pushed out for taxi. The only reason I noticed it was because there was no boarding call, so I assume the aircraft left empty.

Aviation has a 100% record, we've never left one up there......

Towards the end the flights to Malaga and Alicante started in GLA, did a pick up in EDI, then to Spain. On the way back, they called into EDI, finishing in GLA. There maybe wasn't a boarding call as it was flying to GLA at the end of the sector.

Either that, or there wasn't any passengers to board?!
