Air Scotland has applied for 2 weekly flights from GLA to JFK...here's a good one for the spotters they plan on using L1011-500 a/c on the route...it should be nice to see these classic wide bodies at JFK again!!!

I just screamed. haha

They don't have any L10s yet, though, so it might be a little while. Any timeline?

according to their press release...summer 2005....I believe they're supposed to be ex-transat L10's...Global Jet which is involved with Air Scotland already has some of their own...

I thought I'd never see the day again.

Apparently, I was wrong. AND BOY AM I GLAD.

Now there's a reason to ditch work and head to the airport. This is huge.

This is great news indeed.

I always maintained we'd see the Tri Star back on regular scheduled service to JFK again before they're really GONE, but time was running out.

2005 is a good year.. Tahiti, Thai, - Eurofly, LTU, and Qatar, TAM etc to follow.

Read that Gulf is looking to expand as well...maybe something to look forward to in 2006.

Tom, you're absolutely right...2005 has been a fantastic year for JFK. All the more reason for us to all have a fantastic summer full of spotting. Hope to see you out there sometime soon... :)
