Ok guys I have been thinking quite a bit about QF
and Glasgow and I can see it happening but not with a QF
744 but an Australian airlines a330 or 767 or what ever they have in 2007. I will try and point out how I think this.
1. Flyglobespans parent company have already stated they whish to do GLA
-Australia and have started offering Holiday packages in Australia from this year I believe. So a similar deal could be set up in the same way globespan do GLA
- Canada with air transit.
2. I would imagine that the reported strong bookings for the new EK
service from GLA
this year has had a big impact on QF
sure a large amount of the GLA
pax on EK
continue onto Australia. This would be a good way of getting a good number of the pax back especially as they are linking up with a strong travel agent such as globespan.
3. It would be Australian airlines and not QF
as I believe it would be mostly leisure pax using the route.
4. I hate having to do this one as it is basically justify why GLA
and not MAN
. There is really strong demand from the west of Scotland to Australia I believe as there is so many people that have immigrated from hear to there and also relatives visiting each other. I believe in the last year or so I must have spoken to someone that is going, just back or there friends or family are visiting Australia or even immigrating there. Plus unlike MAN
and BHX EK
flights there is most likely less people connecting to Asia on the GLA
flight and more to Australia.
5. The demand is there and the route would be very fool all year round I believe just maybe a shortage of premium pax and that's why not QF
. The best stop on route to OZ
I think would be Hong Kong as there is a large community in GLA
from that region also not to mention ex pats and maybe help fill up business class more and CX
are also in one world so good feed from there to. So what you all think?
I think this could really work out well for GLA
group and Globespan and i think i have just maybe put forward to the group a strong case or even there thinking if this is true?
