SPAA issues concern over BA flight cut

Scottish travel agents are becoming increasingly concerned following British Airways’ decision to cut flights on its Scottish-Anglo routes.

Scottish Passenger Agents Association spokesman Sandy MacPherson said agents are concerned the cutting of around 1,000 seats a week will make bookings harder while the scrapping of the red-eye 6.05am Glasgow Heathrow flight will negatively impact business travellers.

He added: “The fear is once those seats disappear, they won’t come back.”

A BA spokesman said the while the first Glasgow Heathrow flight of the day has been cancelled the second 7.50am flight is being brought forward to 7am to cater for business traveller’s needs.

He added: “We will continue to fly more flights between Scotland and London than we have on any other networks.”
