I'm just back and after investigating all airlines, I found Zoom to be the cheapest. I was a bit concerned that it might be a 'no frills' airline as i kinda like my comforts, but the standard was every bit as good as Air Canada and KLM both of which I have used previously, although the plane was smaller.

If you go onto www.skyscanner.net (http://www.skyscanner.net) it will give you the best prices for all the airlines, including Zoom and Air3000. It will also show you the different costs for different days in a month, both directions, and including taxes and charges, so you can see at a glance when is best to go.

Also perhaps u can try Canadian Affair....which was/ is part of Thomas Cook Travel/ they recently seem to have teamed up with Air Transat, another Trans Atlantic carrier.
I have found that the next best to Air Canada/ British Airways is Canadian Affair! Nice seating arrangements and good food!
FYI.....................

I agree with wild1 - flyglobespan.com, however in the Canadian newspapers today (yes - I am in Canada at this very moment!!!) flyzoom and canadianaffair are both advertising VERY cheap flights - be aware I am posting from Canada and I got here with flyglobespan.com - and they are using Boeing 757's not the Airbus - and are having to stop at Reykyavik to refuel. The service is not a patch on Air Transat to my mind and although they sell it very well on their website - you may be a little disappointed with what you get - so I would check the Air Transat website too.

Hi again,
Over the past years, and in particular the past 16 months, I traveled quite a bit to and from Scotland, whether its was from Toronto/ London/ Inverness and return, or to Glasgow and return, and one has to be flexible. Most of the flights were late, other than traveling East where on one occasion we got into LHR 60 minutes early, as we had a 100 mph tail wind.
Just a further suggestion.... if you are traveling... e.g from Inverness/ London/ Toronto or other parts of Canada or the United States, it is better to book them all back to back with the same carrier system. That way if the initial flight is late getting in, you can get on the next plane out. If you book them individually with different airlines (and sometimes it is quite a bit cheaper to do it that way), you may miss your connection and the chances are that you will have to buy another full fare, likely at an inflated price. People have been badly burned with this, espectially I with understand with the 'so called cheapies'!
Just remember some of the newer planes are called Airbuses, and they really are a BUS! And I do remember that in Caithness, many years ago the buses were sometimes late........
For what it's worth! sandyr
