Mon Jun 30, 2003 11:04 pm

Just read on Pprune that Air Scotland will start a weekly NCL-PMI service starting in July. Anybody know more about this?

Is there any details anywhere how this airline is doing. Planning on flying them from scotland and trying their 'thistle class' just for fun. Are they doing OK now that the aircraft problem has been sorted out?

@Aussiestu: I don't know how they're doing financially but can give you some details about the aircraft: they're using 2 757's of Air Holland of which one is in full Air-Scotland livery (PH-AHS) and the other one in the (very) old Air Holland scheme (PH-AHE).

Thanks Going64.......are there any pics around yet? Also who is operating the flights for them, does Air Scotland have their own cabin and flight crew or is this all supplied by Air Holland. Its all very interesting and I only hope that this all works out...........going to try them in August I hope and would like to know that it has all settled down by then. Many thanks for reply!
