Tenerife Frenzy

Sat Oct 19, 2002 4:56 am

Anyone know why there are more than 12 flights coming into Glasgow from Tenerife over the coures of Friday night. Not all operated by the usual culprits, with Excel ( operating under a JN flight code for some reason) operating at least 4 flights and MD airline Iceland operating a flight.
Just interested to know what the frenzy is all about. There are normally only 5 or 6. Seems a bit early for end of season rush home.

It could be due to the Scottish school holidays: Tenerife is a really popular destination for the school holidays in October. Just a thought...

Well spotted Djb77... That is correct...

It's not unusual for Shell Suit City to have this rush....  Wink/being sarcastic

When I was there yesterday, seen a MYT 763 going back to GLA, And about 3 flights (Futura (went Tech, so delayed), Iberworld and Spanair) all flying to PIK.
Lots of flights to LGW and MAN especially though.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!
