At EDI both TUI and TCX use Easyjet for some destinations.

TUI Re the TFS flight in my earlier post Just to clarify. The TUI booking system gives a choice on Tuesdays and also Fridays of Either a TCX flight to TFS or a TUI flight operated by another carrier.
There are higher suplements for the TCX flight as opposed to the TUI flight operated by another carrier. Timings are different for the TCX flight and the TUI operated by another carrier.
TUI are using Easyjet for the Faro flight in 2019.

Hope that makes sense.

Looks like someone has been messing with Wiki saying that AA will be starting a seasonal ORD route from 04 May 19

Rumours were another route to go on sale by end of month ??

i did hear airport was in talks with airlines for a route to USA

may make sence to try somewhere else than EWR/JFK etc

time will tell maybe some truth in it but it will be a shock if it did happen

A few years ago we had someone on this thread who used to do that with the Wiki and then highlight it on here claiming it to be true. They did it before the New York route arrived a few years ago.
If NCL was to gain a USA route then I would imagine Las Vegas and possibly Orlando would arrive before New York was attempted again. Apparently the demand for Las Vegas from the region is high (and was one the airport bosses were looking at), and I see more and more people going to Disney World and other Orlando Theme Parks, so that could also be a possibility as well.
I canít see the demand for Chicago from Newcastle or vica versus being high, though I guess Chicago would be for USA and Canadian connections.
I certainly canít see it though and like before, itís got to be seen as just a wiki troll.

Chicago bit of a strange one to troll with . Be nice to see the airport announce anything never mind a transatlantic.

Chicago is a big hub for both American and United, so its always possible flights could be added to there. EWR/JFK are both pretty full, with slots difficult to come by. Both United and American have both been switching flights away from New York out of EDI, changing to IAD and PHL respectively. If a route is heavily dependent on transfers, then the airlines seem to prefer to avoid New York at the moment.

Never say never, however I'd still have thought if an American carrier was to launch flights to Newcastle, it would be from New York first.

There is a lot more to the USA than just New York
from what I have heard New York is a nightmare as a connection point.

New York is expensive compared to other USA cites

as we always say never say never

good to see AF using A318 but it's a few months away yet

ORD with AA would probably have made a lot more sense than JFK and UA as there would have been a ready supply of OneWorld loyalists out of NCL (there will be hardly any Star Alliance flyers in the North East) and ORD is a far better hub to transit to US destinations. But then again AA and BA are in revenue share agreement over the North Atlantic so it may not have made sense to them.

Probably irrelevant in the short to medium term, especially with the weakness of the pound.

With cut backs to U.K. And Europe from New York where are these aircraft flying to now or is the fleet being reduced or aircraft going to another USA airport

could the 757 fly to ord from ncl

be nice to see AA 787's however think the aircraft would be too big

correct in saying BA/AA may have a better chance and customers travelling from local airport rather than through LHR but also the service needs to be year round not summer only

with EI only once daily it now makes ncl not good for connections maybe another reason for the cut back

The CAA statistics for October are now available......Emirates new Dubai service from EDI got off to a good start resulting in the GLA figure being down 14% and NCL down 5%, looks like GLA took the biggest hit as passengers transferred to the EDI flight. All Spanish destinations fell with the exception of Fuerteventura with Greece and mainly Turkey the benificiaries.

Domestic.....LHR had a big 7% increase to 46,303 pax and Exeter continues to rise with a 5% increase to 4,417....Bristol up 20% to 16,853 and Belfast up 6% to 23,190....Jersey was popular in October at 2,984 up 34%

CAA stats show a total of 506,797 pax up 1.6%

I work with a lad who goes to Vegas at least a couple of times a year from NCL. They find the cheapest route they can get for their dates. I agree a weekly flight may drum up enough interest but It would have to come at a real competitive price.
