Air Scotland Launch GLA-AMS And GLA-CDG

Sat Feb 19, 2005 12:18 am

Seen on another website that they are starting AMS and CDG, now on sale on their website also. Apparently only 2 x weekly on each route though which is a bit piss poor really

LMAO. 2x WEEKLY? Good luck!  Wink/being sarcastic Could easily sustain at least 2x DAILY.

Air Scotland and flyGlobespan are notorious for poor frequencies on some of their routes, hence why I call them glorified charter airlines  Big grin

GKirk: BAA still classed them as charter up until summer 04.

I think the lack of frequency is more down to shortage of aircraft rather than shortage of demand. They currently operate a single 757, and I havent heard any plans to take on an extra aircraft for the summer.

Quoting Gkirk (reply 0):

Isn't that Air-Scotland's motto? Think its time this outfit stopped playing airlines and got serious.

Kirk, quit bashing GSM! Big grin

Now for Air Scotland.....Its pathetic, 2x weekly services will struggle IMO. Hopefully EZY will come to their senses and increase GLA-AMS to atleast 3x daily and hopefully GSM get slots for CDG or ORY for a daily service.
Neutrality means that u don't really care cos the struggle goes on even when ur not there, blind and unaware

POINTLESS

Any half decent airline would operate these routes at least twice daily, i'm surprised there not going via somewhere as well, just to make it even more of a useless service!!

Not twice daily, but daily would be suffice to start with surely.
GLAGAZ, why should i?  Big grin
