I presume TF-ELY has gone tech yet again?  Yeah sure

Jeez - Coach from NCL to GLA - how many hours does that take again ??  Yeah sure

Bet there will be some pretty unhappy passengers on that flight....



Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work

Indeed. Thankfully this is the last summer that NCL gets the dreaded 734 as I believe it's leaving the XLA fleet at the end of the summer.
It's not just TF-ELY going tech though, OH-LBS hasn't exactly been great either

Same difference, it'll take them 4-5 hrs on a bus to get to GLA.

... and probably the flight would have been delayed for 12+ hours, with an added knock-on effect to the rest of NCLs flights this week.

and same difference??? isn't that just a contradiction?

Must be getting some other airline from Glasgow, as there is only 1 flight from GLA to FUE today, a TCX 757 that left at about 9am this morning.

How come it isn't on the arrivals board, yet RHO and PFO are? I thought they only had one a/c based at NCL?

Excel have 3 a/c based at NCL at the moment.
1 x 734 (TF-ELY) and 2 x 757s (OH-LBS and OH-LBU I think).

They also operated a flight from MAN today on TFAMK which included pax coached from East Midlands! Having Jumbos sitting around doing nothing makes combining flights a realistic option.
