British Airways, although usually more expensive, do offer complimentary snacks and beverages throughout all of their flights, so you might find they offer great value for money on your flight tickets.
You can easily find your way from the airport to the city center after your flights to Glasgow, with several different options to choose from. One of the easiest is the Glasgow Shuttle, which goes to and from the airport and the city center throughout the day. You can also jump on the bus to go to one of a few different train stops, in case you want to catch the train to different parts of Scotland.
For those of you who are healthy and enjoy exercise, there are a couple of routes connected to the airport that allow for hiking or cycling, which might be a fun way to get to the city if you have little luggage. Of course you could grab a taxi directly from the arrivals Terminal, although this won’t be cheap, you can split the fare with friends if you’re not travelling alone.
