I just heard yesterday that CO are now running a DC-10 into GLA in place of the 757 with plans to permanently upgrade to either a 767-400 or 777. This was from someone who is involved in the ground handling services, but obviously is just word of mouth at the moment.

I have heard through the grapevine that CO are planning to operate, initially anyway, via MAN using a B777. So that means that people will have a choice... they can go from GLA on a clapped out DC-10 or 20 odd year old B757, or a state of the art B777 from the capital....Gee, let me think.....

Question

Guvnor, who else will attend the summit in Edinburgh? What is on the agenda and why are you so sceptical about any productive results emerging?

BA, bmi, Continental, and all the Scottish airports as far as I'm aware.

BAB2B,
I just heard yesterday that CO are now running a DC-10 into GLA in place of the 757 with plans to permanently upgrade to either a 767-400 or 777.
CO's DC10 came on to the GLA route last year 'cos it became spare from a route they thought they would get but didn't. It worked well with the back end load so they put it back into the schedule for this summer only. The service reverts to the 757 early September.

There is little chance of seeing a 777 on either of the Scottish routes over the next couple of years. Initally CO will work with two 757s but if there is sufficient growth they may consider a 767 but they would look to re-configure it with a higher number of economy seats to match the market.

The 777 is a nice aircraft but a little bit of an ambitious sledgehammer for the Scottish nut.

However as the Guv'nor points out if you want a 777 ride across the pond you can take a nice jet connection to several UK & European airports from Scotland.
