Yes, fares exist from 2372 other locations. Most stations have fares from just under 2700 locations so there are about 300 stations that don't have fares to Glasgow Airport.The link was set up in Arriva days and McGills have run the service for a while now. They seem to have a penchant for not being involved in integrated ticketing, having not been part of the Daytripper scheme for some time. Presumably it isn't lucrative enough for both Scotrail and McGills to offer through ticketing.
Having said that, the fares still seem to exist but with no bus times nothing appears in the planners.
Yes, that is for the 500 from the city centre. The great thing about the Paisley link was that through tickets were priced at the fare from Paisley Gilmour Street (eg the bus was 'free' which might explain why it would be withdrawn).
Yes, I've done the walk before. It's not much longer than some of the walks within larger airport terminals, but the road isn't the most pleasant!

Walking from Glasgow Airport to Paisley Gilmour Street doesn't take that long in my experience but I appreciate that is not an option for all. It is about 1.5 miles.
Yes its the 757 Paisley to Clydebank bus rather than a dedicated airport bus (and always has been as far as I know) . Its run by Mc GillsIs the bus between the Airport and Paisley Gilmour Street (on which a rail ticket with 'Glasgow Airport' as the origin/destination was valid) operating just now?
Timetable, which mentions through ticketing http://www.mcgillsbuses.co.uk/mcgills-bus-timetables/757-paisley-to-glasgow-airport.aspxIs the bus between the Airport and Paisley Gilmour Street (on which a rail ticket with 'Glasgow Airport' as the origin/destination was valid) operating just now?
Indeed, I was there on Weds, the TVM title page is Glasgow Airport XBusTimetable, which mentions through ticketing http://www.mcgillsbuses.co.uk/mcgills-bus-timetables/757-paisley-to-glasgow-airport.aspx
I checked the TVM in the airport last night: it is only selling Glasgow Airport Xbus tickets, i.e. via the 500 service to the city centre. For my use case this gives a slower option costing over twice the old "Paisley Coach" (GGT) route.
