Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner
Only two Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner's entered service with Air Scotland, with the remaining three orders converted to the larger -9 variant, the 787-8 is utilized by Air Scotland operating lower yielding long haul routes to North America and Asia.
Both 787-8's were out of service for six months while the issues with the RR engines were resolved, with both returning to service in the fall of this year. It is anticipated that these two variants will receive the new livery and cabin in the first quarter of 2020.
In June of 2020 Air Scotland leased all Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners to Finlandair in a bid to reduce capacity and cost after the global Covid pandemic. The airline stated that the lease was for an undisclosed period of time, however it is unlikely they would return to service with Air Scotland within the next 12 months.
