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....

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.
