I've been keeping a very close eye on this as we would be affected by any changes but nothing official announced yet.. as it stands though they are flying direct from Glasgow from the end of March so that is the current official line I believe. They are currently going out on a Saturday and Wednesday and back a Friday and Tuesday.

We are booked through VH and have already selected seats for our outbound flight direct from Glasgow on a Saturday in May 2021 and are due to book our inbound seats on Thursday of this week. Looking at VA website, the Saturday return direct to Glasgow no longer exists so something will change. My brother goes out a week before us and is still waiting on the flight reference to be linked on VH manage my booking, so i don't think ours will be linked on Thursday either.

As others have mentioned in this thread I'm hearing a range of things from people being sent out from Glasgow and back into Manchester, having their flight changed to another day, being sent indirect or being told there are no flights from Glasgow next year full stop, so i don't know what to believe!

Just waiting to see how it all pans out now.

Iíve read on fb (take with a pinch of salt) that someone has been told by VA that from June they would be going back to Friday Saturday flights. 🤷 Guess itís just a case of waiting to see with they announce/release at the time

2. the way VA have treated the Glasgow customers ie refunds and mucked around with flights and dates and then just cancel all flights completely(although doesnt look like anyone going to get in anytime soon)
Because BA messed us about in 2017. Booked based on EDI-gat-MCO both ways with reasonable connection times at Gatwick.

4 months out, they removed the earlier flight back to Edinburgh meaning 10 hrs in Gatwick. Luckily we live in north Lanarkshire so good for both edi and gla but a pain as wanted back earlier on the day back and also couldnít park car at Edinburgh anymore.

Before this happened, the ability to just go and come back directly was a lovely thought and stopped all of what I just described. I should be in Florida right now, coming back on 11th. But hey booked for next year but who knows how we get there and ask you can see from my signature, my hotel isnít currently open yet.

Iíve been checking VH daily and they are gradually (rolling 331 days out) changing their flights to Wed/Sat out & Tue/Fri return.
As of today we are up to Friday 4th June 2021 (331 days out) and they are definitely changing the flights in June - so far anyway.
Iím waiting to see what happens to my flights booked for Fri 18th June.

Hi all.

Just an update from our booking, we were supposed to be going out from Glasgow with VH on Sat the 22nd May and returning on Saturday June the 5th. Our flights window opened today and we have been moved to coming back on Friday June the 4th.

Interestingly, it hasnt linked on VH manage my booking at all but I can see the return flight now by logging into the VA website directly.

Can I ask as a favour for info from anyone booked with VH, what they do when these flights are changed, when asked.

Do they:
1. Change your flight to a day early
2. Make the return flight non direct
3. Allow to book for 17 days


It seems inevitable that in 2 weeks time Iíll be dealing with this and Iím looking to be prepared for how to discuss things with them.

For us i think we will just be leaving it as is, the change was done automatically, we weren't asked our preference.

We'll just come back a day early, it's not great but extending isn't an option for us due to school and i can't be bothered with the hassle of indirect plus, after having to cancel from this May, I'll be happy to be able to go at all!
