You're away a total of 15 nights which may not suit everyone but I like the idea!

Depart Wed 16th June from Glasgow @ 14.05

Arrive Orlando International @ 17.55

Depart Thu 1st July from Orlando International @ 20.55

Arrive Glasgow @ 09.50 (next day)

I've been struggling to get a half decent price now that Globespan's bit the dust.

If you know of a better price, don't vote cold in disgust. Instead please PM me & tell me where before I book this.

Plus if you go through Quidco you'll save another £42.22, bringing it down to £2068.98!

Good deal, but you would not have liked going with globespan, they only had one plane that did that route and with 2-3 hours downtime between turnarounds it never got the greatest maintenance, Guy from work came back on globespans plane on 3 engines out of 4.

For 6 people that is a great price, just a pity that most who would like to go have kids that would be in school and of course as soon as the holidays start the price rockets. Oh no, they're not ripping us off, it's supply and demand.

can find the flights but not the price. Coming in at 441 each

Up in Scotland, our schools stop the week after this departure date so I don't feel too guilty.
My eldest will start high school in Aug 2011 so this is one of my last chances of doing this as it is very much frowned upon.

Excellent price for a family of 6.
If it wasnt for the school term dates I'd be booking this right now....

As it stands - I'm thinking about it.

cost me £2700 for three of us and only travelling three weeks later . what a rip off :xgreat deal by the way !
#7
I went in 2008 for 3 wks in July / August - 7 of us in total and the flights alone cost around £7000.

This is a fantastic deal, and I'm still very tempted.

Wow ... your holidays start that early? Here (Derbyshire) we our kids don't break up until the 3rd week in July. I never knew the school holidays were so different between England & Scotland. D'oh!

Excuse my language, but when our schools do break up the weather is Sh**e so I have no idea why we finish up earlier than England when they have the warmer climate!!! It's God damn infuriating!!!
#11
I wish august prices were as reasonable, looking for a bargain for school hols next year but not holding out much hope after watching the prices this year.
#12
how do you get this price.?Whenever I try I get 441 each
#13
Amazing price! BOOK IT WHILE YOU CAN, this will get very hot! I'm £1360 from Glasgow 29th May, this is premium economy but even at that they were over £1000 for economy for just 2 adults.

Try this if you don't mind flying from Glasgow/Edinburgh and live in England.

Try getting prices from Scotland for the last 2 weeks of the English Summer holidays. There can be a large difference as the Scottish schools are back and therefore the prices drop. I like direct holidays!:thumbsup:
#21
There are no direct flights from Glasgow apart from the 2 weeks in this post , 2 weeks in April and 2 weeks in October,all with Virgin.This is due to Globespan going bust and being the only carrier from Scotland with direct flights to Florida.
#22
Trouble is that Orlando is such a sh*thole. At the end of the day, all you're going for is Disneyworld and the space centre and that's not included in the price!
#23
they prolly even do more cheap flights if this is a success http://www.ferrariworldabudhabi.com cost billions bigger than Orlando
#24
Virgin do good deals , 2 adults 1 teenager and 1 child. Flights to Orlando, hotel, car+insurance leaving 30th may for 15 nights all for £2800, just means taking the kids out if school for 6 days. No park tickets were included in this price

Airlines only make money when the aircraft are in the air, it would have had to adhere to CAA regulated maintainance standards in terms of safety, I can't comment on the standard of the cabin however. Globespan flew the B767 on that route, which is a two engine aircraft, the only 4 engine aircraft at present are the B747, A340 and A380 so I think your colleague got his facts wrong or was talking crap.

You voting cold because this thread starter is considering leaving on the dates specified? If you are what pedantic little argument. This is a deal highlighting website not a social critique. If the last week of school is anything like I remember it was mainly sports days and bringing board games in, not really going to result in a stunted education. Could be argued that exposing children to another country and culture (even if you may think its a sh!thole turdburgler) is of equal or greater educational merit.

I agree, taking the kids out of school during the last week isn't going to hurt them!

Hi, sorry but this is a total lie!

1. FlyGlobespan used a Boeing 767-300ER type aircraft for all their long haul flights. They had four of these aircraft, not one.

2. The Boeing 767-300ER has two engines, so how it managed to fly across the Atlantic with 3 of 4 engines working, when it only has 2 is quite frankly impossible.

3. All EU registered airlines must meet the same strict safety regulations. So to say one EU based airline is safer/less safe than others is just nonsense

4. Do you really believe any airline in the world would be allowed to fly an aircraft across an ocean with engines not working?!?!

It's true what they say about the general public and the airline industry... :roll:

Edinburgh does not have flights to Florida. Glasgow is Scotland's only long haul gateway.

Rubbish!

Thomas Cook Airlines fly direct from Glasgow International to Orlando Sanford every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Thomson Airways fly direct from Glasgow International to Orlando Sanford every Saturday.

Virgin Atlantic plan more flights from Glasgow for 2011
03 March 2010

Virgin Atlantic’s love for Glasgow appears to have no boundaries as the carrier again plans to increase the number of flights on offer from the city.

Currently the airline offer up to five departures per week direct to Orlando, Florida, during the school Easter and summer holidays. However from April 2011, Virgin Atlantic plans to operate a permanent schedule of flights.

Virgin Atlantic has confirmed that flight from Glasgow International to Orlando International will operate twice weekly, every week, from early April to late October. The airline has also confirmed all flights to and from Glasgow will be operated by a Boeing 747-400 type aircraft.

FlyGlasgow can reveal that should advanced bookings prove popular, Virgin Atlantic will have the capacity to add a third weekly flight, for the entire season.

Virgin Atlantic launched flights from Glasgow International Airport in 2007 and has since then increased capacity from the airport every year.

Flights for 2011 will not be on sale until 12 months in advance of departure date; however package holidays for summer 2011 to Florida flying with Virgin Atlantic from Glasgow can be booked now with Virgin Holidays.


Virgin Atlantic add extra flights from Glasgow to Orlando
17 December 2009

Virgin Atlantic is to lay on additional Florida flights from Glasgow following the demise of Glasgow based operator FlyGlobespan.

Virgin Atlantic currently offer 2 departures per week from Glasgow to Orlando, however the airline has said it will add an additional seven flights throughout summer 2010.

Virgin Atlantic are widely regarded as one of the world's top airlines, having won a number of prestigious awards including Best Long Haul Airline 2009 and Best Transatlantic Airline 2009.

Virgin Atlantic flights from Glasgow to Orlando offer three classes of travel, Economy, Premium Economy and Upper Class Suites. Economy flights are available from just £580 return, including tax.

Free National Express vouchers will also be available to people travelling from Edinburgh and Cardiff to connect with Virgin Atlantic flights to Orlando from Glasgow International, Manchester and London Gatwick, subject to availability.

While this is obviously true, my first thoughts were exactly the same when I read his post.... however on your fourth point there was a couple of high media covered stories of BA flying a 747 across the pond with an engine shut down a number of years ago. Clearly perfectly safe, but the media had a field day with it.

My mum used to give me a letter for School to say I will be away on holiday for 2 weeks. They'd go mental if you did that now. Just say they have chicken pox and go anyways. They do nothing the last few weeks anyways.

Obviously you have never been to Orlando then!, Disneyworld is far far bigger than this.
