    BA boosts Heathrow-Glasgow route:)

    An extra 4,000 seats a week will be provided by British Airways between London Heathrow and Glasgow starting on October 30.

    The move is designed to compensate for the seat shortage on this route following the withdrawal by rival Bmi earlier this year (see online news January 31). With fewer seats available, passengers using the Heathrow route have faced paying more for their tickets.

    Overall it represents good news for all Anglo-Scottish passengers seeing as Bmi recently announced it was cutting flight frequency between Heathrow and Edinburgh (see online news September 27) from the end of this month.

    Much needed IMO. Since BMI's withdrawal from the route every flight I've been on between GLA and LHR has been pretty much full.

    That's great news, I often struggle to get a decent connection either into our out of LHR when I fly in from SYD :)

    BA must be loving this....GLA must be one of their best performing routes - passenger % increase wise, since bmi pulled out.
    Really does make one wonder why LH did not start a FRA service just as soon as BD left. Leaving GLA without a service to any major European Star Alliance hubs was a very bad business decision on Lufty's part in my opinion and played right into BA and Oneworlds hands.
