Tue Jun 26, 2001 7:32 am

two services to the usa from glasgow,UK AA goes to ORD and CO goes to EWR and thats it although uk charters go to various usa destinations and canadian airliners AC air transat & canada 3000 all operate services from glasgow to toronto, vancouver, halifax & calgary so why cant the american airliners operate more routes from GLA ?

AA's hub is ORD, CO's is EWR. Other hubs are AA: DFW and MIA, CO: IAH and CLE. Is there a large enough market demand to fill the aircraft between GLA and those cities?

GLA has lots of demand in the Summer with vacationers, during the Winter it's just business traffic.

AA operates to GLA from ORD during the Summer only while CAL flies to GLA year round from EWR with a 757 during the off-peak Winter season and a DC-10 during the peak Summer travel season.

Many travelers heading to Aberdeen or Edinburgh connect in London or Manchester instead of flying into GLA and driving.
