Not sure how that compares to other UK regional routes, but capacities all vary anyway...

Loads for Oct appear to be BHX 71%/MAN 65%/EDI 63%/CWL 50%

The LFs say nothing about yield and how profitable the route may, or may not, be...nor how valuable it is to QR's overall hub operation in terms of adding volume.

EDI has gone from B788->A359->up to 10x weekly A359 in a relatively short space of time. Growth is still good, as long as the route keeps growing into it's recently added capacity over the next year or two, that's the important thing.
QR still growing whilst also competing with EK now at EDI who had an 80% LF in October.
