Could be a fair few students at the various Universities in Glasgow, Edinburgh, St Andrews etc

BA operated a cargo only 777-300 flight to GLA yesterday. That will be a fair old amount to offload esp if cabin used too.

An nice unusual visitor of an Air India 777-200LR tonight into GLA in a one-off flight. Perhaps cargo related.
I think there were rumours in the 90ís around the time of PK flights of a direct Air India GLA passenger flight but would have been a long shot.

Lots of nice pics and videos. Back out late to BOM today. Shame unlikely to be seen again.
AI aircraft always look so grubby. They should have chosen bright white instead of off cream. Improved BA livery when they did it.
Speaking of AI, hope the 738 Kerala death count doesn’t rise any further.

Interestingly appears on Flight Radar as ‘Diverted to Delhi’ as originally (up until last night) flight planned to return to BOM.

I bet there was a real scramble of punters trying to book that service...
(How would anyone even know about it outwith repatriation consulate sorts?!)

Unsurprisingly that can be summed up in just 2 words, Air India, they do things in very odd ways

aside from the paint job, it probably was grubby... can’t speak for long haul but out of every domestic carrier I have been on in India, they were hands down the worst (mostly because it was grubby!). Jet (rip!), IndiGo, SpiceJet and Vistara all much better
