There are, in fact, as far as I can tell from my brief web searching, no direct flights from Singapore to Glasgow currently offered by any airline. The closest cities to Australia with direct flights to Glasgow are Dubai and Lahore, both of which have no direct flights from Brisbane, Australia (where Steve and Terry live).

In fact, about the only really sensible options for flying to Glasgow from Australia involve changing planes at Heathrow.

And the tiny Heathrow-Glasgow hop is not long enough for sufficient drama on board...

So I invented this flight.

The exterior shot of the plane, by the way, is a gorgeous new Lego model, very generously donated by a reader. It sure beats the makeshift job I did with the previous plane model I used.
