Does anyone know when EZY will release AMS, JER, CDG and STN? It seems odd that these are the only flights yet to be released across the entire EZY network.

EZY Commercial director is supposedly in Glasgow today for some sort of discussions before the announcement on these routes (and more?) is made tomorrow

I believe MXP dropped and everything else remains as is so reduction at GLA as it stands. There is obviously time for Easyjet to add more.

When United dropped GLA for the winter after 19 years of continuous service, did they have any loyal staff they let go or is the whole operation 3rd party handled?

I would suspect there would have been at least one person employed by UA to oversee Glasgow and to act as a liaison between the airline and the various organisations at the airport but this of course could be merged with another airport. EK (for example) have a handful of their own staff at GLA to oversee the day to day operation and this is of course is in addition to the Swissport groundstaff that handle the flights.

I know for Shannon, which suffered similar albeit shorter cutbacks, they kept on 2 members of staff over the winter. The UA Manager for SNN and another member of staff. Would assume its the same for GLA

No, its been mooted/semi announced on various outlets/portals for weeks, so most defintely not heard here first (if it comes to spectacular fruition)
I think the general manager even publicly announced it some weeks ago...

There are obvious city destinations such as Berlin Madrid and Lisbon which I would expect Easyjet to pick up

Nice to see the 767 on the KEF run as a tech sub for 757.
Thats 753, 752, 738M and 763 to GLA in recent times.

Don't think it was a tech sub, as it was planned for at least a couple of weeks. Unless planned maint impacted 757 availability.

Does anyone know if there was an exercise on Friday or was there a precaution shout for external help just around 12:45?

Noticed a load of red, white & flashing blue had been let in through the emergency gate at the north end of the runway as we were waiting to take off.

Does BA Maintenance GLA only take one Airbus at any one time? I previously thought it had width/capacity for two Airbus narrowbodies (or was it just 737's). I see some of seat capacity change work being done in the leased hanger at PIK instead.

BAMG has space for two in the hanger and one outside (personally saw two inside last week and one parked outside last week). It has been common for them to use PIK as an overspill (they did some skin repairs on the fleet there recently), they can also be visitors for some training at PIK also. I suggest they’re busy with the usual line maintenance, the extra work on the Config change, means taking some of that work to PIK.
