I do wonder what expectations Jet2 have for the MAN route, because it would be foolish for them to belive they could fill those B733s on a regular basis, but they seem to want to stick with it!
My one MAN-EDI flight with them probably had 60-70 pax on it.

Have BMI dropped EDI-MUC before it begins? Not bookable on the website anymore

Looks like it! After all the bollocks in the press about it a few weeks ago it never seemed that stable, bmi themselves aren't that stable! Ah well, can't see who's going to replace them, LH have always said they weren't interested in diluting their FRA flights by operating to MUC...

Centralwings have annouced Gdansk and Katowice today, with Warsaw already started and Krakow annouced last month by SkyEurope there's a bit of a Polish explosion of routes happening!

I think is is to provide a service to the Poles working over here, since Poland joined the EU there has been an influx of Poles to the big cities in Scotland and these routes will provide links back to the native land. I don't think the routes have been set up to entice us Scots to the tourist spots of Poland, although I would like to visit there, Raynair do a 3xweek Pik-Krakow service.

The follwoing quotes are from an article from the Scotsman Newspaper Website

Eryk Klopotowski, a spokesman for SkyEurope, said: "We have bases in Bratislava, Budapest, Krakow and Warsaw, so it is our intention to serve these destinations from Edinburgh.
CentralWings, which already flies to Warsaw, will launch new services from Edinburgh to Gdansk and Katowice next year.

President and chief executive Piotr Kociolek said future destinations could include their other Polish bases, such as Wroclaw
FlyGlobespan chairman Tom Dalrymple added: "We will be expanding our routes from Edinburgh Airport, and we are aware of the growing emergence of eastern European countries. However, we are wary of the longevity of some of these destinations."

The Edinburgh - Krakow route is on sale now with Skyeurope and there is a Warsaw route on sale with Central Wings

Great for Edinburgh and great for Scotland

Have also heard murmors about EK launching either a 2nd daily GLA-DXB flight or starting an EDI flight.

Krakow is certainly a tourist destination, and so far loads seem about 50:50 split between Scots (or other Brits) and Poles.

Flyglobespan starting 1 x weekly flights (on a Saturday) between EDI and TFS from 4th November.

Could this be pre-empting Jet 2?

Quite possibly, Jet2 haven't announced flights TFS flights from EDI this winter so far and it doesn't look like they are going to know so it is wise of GSM to get in there first.

It looks like GSM are on a serious EDI winter expansion drive this year.

TFS now up to 2 x weekly this winter.
New weekly service to ACE.
ALC and AGP to operate daily throughout the winter.
FAO and PMI both 2 x weekly. Previously these routes were summer only.

Still no sign of BCN beyond the summer timetable yet, though.

Can we expect more to come?

GSM are extending EDI-Murcia into the winter, with twice-weekly service on Weds and Sats.

Are Jet2 planning to run their Murcia service from EDI through winter too?

Flyglobespan launching 5 x weekly EDI-Chambery flights, starting 23 December. Seasonal ski flights, running until 15 April.

I wonder whether this is instead of the Flybe flights?

Flybe never operated it as a scheduled route so this is a big bonus. Although I think GSM have sold seats to the tour operator that used to use BE, Crystal holidays or whatever they are called.
The charter and scheduled timetables don't match up though so it could be that GSM will be operating 2 CMF flights on a Saturday.

Charter
Chambery SAT 0800-1825 7&14 GSM651 23/12-14/04 CRYSTAL HOLIDAYS
Chambery SAT 0800-1825 7&14 GSM651 23/12-14/04 THOMSON LAKES & MOUNTAINS


Scheduled (Saturday):
Saturday 23 December 2006 13:30 16:50

It could be with some small alterations to that timetable that they are going to do EDI-CMF-EDI-CMF-EDI!

Looks like Flyglobespan are bringing back EDI-Prague, commencing 2nd November with a 3 x weekly service, though currently only bookable until just before Christmas. Presumably they ultimately intend to operate the service beyond this date?

Actually, no. Whether that changes or not remains to be seen but it's only running to 23rd December provisionally, whether the highly possible return of STN will play a part in whether PRG is extended or not remains to be seen too.
