I read elsewhere ,the main reason for EDI is the preponderance of business travellers(more revenue),against GLA's mainly leisure travellers.

Delta's choice,not the SE.

ATL
Great news, have used the EWR a few times but ATL is better for MCO connections. I do hope Delta having just gone into Ch 11 are not using their position to knock Continental off the EWR?
Mind you where I live NCL is a little easier to get to, was hoping Continental were going to do a EWR instead of AA JFK!

Great to see a better choice from EDI.

I'm looking forward to EDI-TLS so that I can get away from the Mum-in-law faster! For a related reason, I'm not quite so keen on TLS-EDI!

Jet2 has announced new routes from EDI (apparently!). Very short on detail,I'm afraid.You may have to register to view the very short story---

http://news.scotsman.com/edinburgh.cfm?id=2127212005

I checked the Jet2 website,and nothing there.

Anybody know anything?

No new routes yet! All that has happened is that Jet2 have confirmed their intention to launch a series of new routes, no more detail that that. It was half expected anyway.
One thing we do know for sure about Jet2 and EDI, is that MAN isn't getting dropped, as some would have had you believe recently.

Jet2 are asking where YOU want to fly to from EDI. Fill in your choice on the home page. I like their approach!

Indeed, although I'm sure they already know what routes they are going to annouce, really. This could just be a nifty way of getting as many email addresses as possible to send out the emails regarding these new routes they have actually already decided on, when they officially announce them in the not too distant future.

Well it seems to accept "mis-typed" addresses

So GSM is also going to Murcia from Edinburgh alongside Jet2. Already their is competition between locos at EDI.

All good news for the punters as this will lower fares but how much can Jet2 and GSM afford to bleed?

Already GSM is taking on easyJet on the GVA despite eJ getting the subsidy so easyJet is already at an advantage.

Now GSM is going head to head with Jet2 on Murcia. Could GSM get squeezed badly here?

Already their Stansted service appears to be running poorly. Was listening on the handling frequency recently at STN to here GSM coming in with 42 passengers. This can only be a 33% load factor. Quite what the yield is I don't know.

So what next in the EDI Loco fares wars????

It'd be their own fault if they do! With Murcia at such a pitiful frequency though, it's clearly just aimed directly at Jet2 just so Jet2 are aware that EDI is Flyglobespan's territory. However, I was hoping they could avoid treading on each others toes like this... STN loads are certainly picking up, but then, they certainly aren't getting the load factors that EZY get on the STN routes on a regular basis.

GSM have just increased EDI-FAO to daily for next summer and with Ibiza getting annouced too, how possible is it that these were the other routes Jet2 are to annouce imminently? very....?

Flyglobespan have annouced EDI-BOH, what are the odds that that was going to be another of Jet2's routes? as well as IBZ? GSM certainly aren't going to let Jet2 settle in at EDI, and even after GSM being given the use of Jet2 aircraft when they needed it in the past...

Interesting that none of these routes seem to be able to sustain more than one carrier on them. Margins must be pretty thin.

For instance GSM have pulled out of Prague from EDI as CSA was on the route. Rumour has it they are pulling off the STN from GLA where they are competing with EZY and soon BER. How long before they pull off EDI-STN if BER come on it.

They're going head to head to fend off Jet2 with Murcia and Bournemouth.

My other half flew Jet2, EDI to MAN recently and there were only about 30 people on the flight. BA & BMI both fly on this route.

EDI to GVA is going to be an interesting one. EZY have the subsidy and are flying it year round. GSM aren't so will be interesting to see if they stick with it.

Full marks to GSM and Jet2 for testing the market and being innovative. Hopefully they can find the right mix of routes for them. At the moment it appears GSM wants to knock out Jet 2. At that point I think low cost will become a cartel with nobody treading on each others toes.

I fly EDI-MAn-EDI every week and the numbers are certainly picking up but do agree that sometimes there are about 30 pax on board but this is usually LS781 on Monday morning.
