Scotland is more "local", it needs an airport for both Edinburgh and Glasgow and so the market fragments badly and the comparison is lost. One "Central Scotland" airport would have United flying if not B772s then at least B787s with Delta surely flying A330s. As things stand, it's narrow body central with yields (slightly) diluted but more local options. Dublin dominates BFS, ORK and SNN in a way neither GLA/EDI can do in Scotland.
