They have no scheduled flights to Glasgow, but it might have been a charter, although then it would probably have to be a A320 or MD-83 of Swiss Sun, but no A319. Maybe someone else knows the reason...

As far as I know they are using the whole fleet to fly charters. At least it is so when there are football flights from Basel. I remember that some travel agents chartered A-330, A-320, A-321 and even Saabs to bring the fans to the destinations...
