Good Bye Air Scotland?

Hi to you all, maybe someone has more information.

Strange things happened on Air Scotland web-page. Couple of weeks ago, Air Scotland annouced a new winter time-table with Canary Island flights. This message is now gone; also flights are in system, but not longer bookable.

Today I found a message on the web-page "A320 ACMI wet-lease for winter":
http://www.air-scotland.com/winter06.html

So, does it mean, Air Scotland will discontinue service soon...  Confused

PS: Unbelievable, but true! I had 2 weeks ago a wonderful flight-experience with AirScotland...  thumbsup

Last that I heard they were being rebranded as TopJetAir (or something similar) as they now have very few flights from Scotland (1?)

Perhaps they lost a contract and therefore had to scrub most (or all) of their winter flights and are trying to find some use for the A320?

Well Top Jet is the callsign for Thomas Cook UK so I doubt they would go by that name.

What happened to their 757?
