Just like the old days. Im surprised they have offered the route at all in current circumstances...

Norwegian's original plan of flying B737 over the pond doesn't seem as crazy now.
They flew 737 even before they got more max a/c on the trans atlantic run.

Personally I'd rather fly on a non stop B737 to YYZ than a scenic 3.5 hour detour

This so far appears only to end October, let's hope so anyway

Hang on.
Routing how? Unless it's YYZ-MAN-GLA-MAN-YYZ, someone's reclearing security. Far from ideal.

Routing is YYZ-GLA-MAN-YYZ

​​​​​​1.5hrs Turnaround in Manchester, 1hrs GLA turnaround inbound from YYZ. 1hrs Schedule flight time to MAN.

​​Journey time 10.5hrs from Gla to YYZ, not the old days I want to return to.

That Air Canada B737 from EDI next year doesn't seem so bad now.

So under DfT rules, the inbound Canadian passengers for MAN, must get off and reclear security at GLA before they can get back on the same aircraft to mix with the Glasgow outbound passengers? Unless that's changed recently....?

perhaps some thanks the route is operating at all, especially as the triangle route is unlikely to be permanent and in competition with an AC 738 Max.

Oh I totally agree with you, so glad they kept the route, when the B767 was dropped from Edi-Yyz was glad route was kept even with a B737.

No airport and no route is safe in these time. We'll have to get use to double drops, short term suspensions and smaller aircraft, so size queens will need to suck it up meantime.

Flew LAX-LHR last week with BA. 25 on board, of those 2 were in club world

Id be surprised if that gets much interest.

The AC 737 from EDI operates 4x a week. Is there much chance the other 3x a week could be from GLA or is that overkill?
