Just heard from ground agt that 2nd NYC summer flight will stop at beginning of september. This usually operates through till end of October. Any ideas why so early an axe this year?
It's actually the start of October it stops, as opposed to what is normally the end of October. There are also various days throughout the summer when the later flight is non op. Passenger demand has never been an issue so I can only imagine APD is obviously an ongoing problem hitting yields. I also think they took too long to get the later flight on sale to the general public this year losing out on potential pax who would have already made other travel plans or booked onto the earlier flight.
Plus the new UA are pretty ruthless when it comes to cost cutting measures and EDI isn't immune, it's just part of an ongoing trend which includes GLA going to 6x weekly from the start of September instead of end of October, CPH being axed completely, FCO suspended atleast for winter...
