Exactly this ^^ weekends LHR-EDI are now far pricier than the traditional Mon/Thurs pinchpoints, although the whole week is pricier than it ever was. I haven't paid under 100 for a BA domestic sector for more than a year now, 300 return is now far more normal. I wish the schedule would catch up to reflect demand. BA's lastest LHR-EDI departure was 1750 for months and months, they've finally added a 9pm and a 10pm on Fridays but it's painful.
