Faced with a routine hospital appointment in Glasgow, the choice is a ferry crossing to Oban and an onward bus or train journey to Glasgow or a flight direct to Glasgow. With the ferry's winter timetable this can take five days, whereas a flight reduces this to three days. So it was that today we arrived at the airport for today's flight.
Gatwick, Heathrow and Glasgow Airport could learn much from Tiree when it comes to 'Customer Service'. With free car parking and a brief check in time, it takes much of the hassle out of flying. Today it was 'the big plane' and with a tail wind we were on the stand at Glasgow Airport in less than 45 minutes.
