GSM should get in before EI do, and launch DUB to MCO/SFB! The number of Irish going to Orlando these days is huge, and nearly all have to go via PHL/EWR/ATL/ORD etc. We only get a fortnightly MON A330 to SFB!

EI had a direct flight to MCO but dropped it last year i think. I believe they wanted to use the aircraft for alt route (possibly DXB) and it was not as popular as they hoped.

I have too aggree with a couple of others Globespan are not good at letting Customers know of flight cancellations or dropped routes
letting Pax know 4 ( GLA - AMS ) days before the flight the route was dropped was appauling
besides that, Lots of travellers in Scotland even Glasgow still dont know they exist, who they are or what they do.

Have to agree with webby, flotation is almost ineviatable...have to admit that the operation seems to have grown at a sustainable albeit very fast rate...Not sure how Mr D would deal with not being in command though,,he mayb have to go and polish his boat down in the south of france...last time I talked to him he said he had forgotten what it looked like!!!

Thats probably because he's never done working! Imagine having all that wealth and not being able to enjoy it. He is doing spectacular things for the Scottish airline market, the cancelled flight to PRG aside, GSM do operate excellent routes at quite cheap prices, with frequent departures. They are a fast-growing company, who need some time to grow - I'm sure they learn from their mistakes.

One place that Globespan do a lot of advertising is the Metro free sheet.

Not very visible if you don't get the bus/train to work, but highly effective since the demographics of the reader base are very good for a travel company.

Regarding Globespan advertising.

Maybe Mr Dalrymple needs to follow the example of another loco boss.
What is that I hear you ask?

Definition of a loco boss looking for free advertising would be actions carried out by one person which will bring free publicity to your company for example,self backslapping,over the top complaining of Government policies,slagging off other airlines when you see them as a threat, ignoring your own passengers when they complain about your services and generally acting like a spoilt two year old whenever a camera is pointed at you.

chivilcoy

why the attack on other low cost airlines

if you mean ryanair and easyjet they are a household name
now and all I was trying to point out was a lack of something
which is so very importent to GSM if it canx flights due to
lack of bums on seats (advertising may be why)
and from what I have read on here yes your right the negative
advertising has started due to canx routes

I have nothing against GSM and wish them all the luck in
the world and look forward to more routes all im saying
is if you dont advertise the routes well enough in your
catchment area your not going to get the bums on seats
but the bums are out there and willing to buy seats if
they were to be told about the routes

Edited to remove the full quote of the previous post. Bad enough we had to live with a total lack of capitalization and punctuation once.

It was some tongue in cheek advice for Mr Dalrymple to get his airline more widely known but I suspect he has a bit more class to go down that road.

lol. I'm sure they won't probably most of the expansion will be in GLA and EDI for S07 so I;m sure you'll have nothing to worry about.

the reason they hav edropped the LPL-PRG route is due to slots in PRG.If teh flight was delayed @LPL (closed during night for runway repairs) then getting into PRG was going to be a problem,well thats the line they are giving out

i presume globespan the tour operator will do the advertising as the flights will obviously be for them

but where are these 757-200 coming from

nobody seems to have any idea

where do you get 4 decent 757,s

seem to be thin on the ground

does anybody from gsm know where they are coming from..

nobody seems to know. mr tom must be keeping it a secret..
