Picked up relatives from Glasgow International Airport and the story of their return flight was surprising so I wanted to post to hear if such a situation could be or happens regularly??....
1) GSM flying a 737 across the Atlantic?
My rels are adamant it was a 737 and that it had to fly a deviated route according to the capital because "They couldn't fly to far away from a safe airport" !!?? This was a Boston - Glasgow flight?
2) That there was a 'sheduled' stop at Knock airport in Ireland as when they did a passenger roster they where one pax down. They unloaded all the bags from the hold onto the ramp and got all the pax to stand beside their bags, then the crew realised that they had miss-counted and all the pax where accounted for and off they went again?
This is third hand so sorry if both the above are comon practice, but sounded bizarre to me?
