Theyve coped without Ryanair and their antics up until now so they'll cope again going forward and have reserves and capacity when others will reach gridlock and plateaeu.
LH for example, so far, seems to be doing ok on FRA (which might have been marginalised with longer term FR competition), plus the apparent EZY suggestion of expansion will do no harm. Once PIK goes, the landscape/politics and Ryanair shenanigans may take another turn.
Still some FR non based flying continuing.

It doesn't seem clever to cut back Lisbon to once a week when the service is shifting to Edinburgh, where it will be up against ezy at 3/wk

On the topic of APD and other charges, I looked at two once way LH flights on the same day and the total taxes/charges from EDI were actually slightly higher than GLA.

Typical GLA under AGS and its current management team. All the big talk and promise of significant expansion, this time from easyJet. And what do they deliver? A reduced winter schedule. Laughable, really.

Thursdays this month have all been 767-300's on PHL-GLA, was that planned? Slight increase in seats and good cargo extra regardless.

interesting given the previous attempt with that service. Good to see DL offering an extend GLA-JFK next year.
Shame for there to be no AA presence at GLA for now.

All the flights you've mentioned saying they are cancelled are still onsale on Ameerican Airlines website.

AA press release on line clear as day - EDI/JFK, GLA/PHL and most surprising of all, MAN/ORD all gone. Only EDI/PHL to replace it. Hardly a resounding vote of confidence in AA's joint venture partner's sales efforts in the UK regions.

Some amount of lost service at GLA the last couple of years. Turning into a mickey mouse airport.

I don't think it's that surprising as with the pound so low against the dollar, the yields on ex UK traffic must bring tears to the eyes. Add to that fuel price increases.....

The AA service is seasonal. Interest in holidays in USA dwindling I suspect. It's another blow for GLA though.

And yet Norwegian have shown enormous demand out of Gatwick and United maintain EDI at three daily in summer. ORD-MAN was self inflicted managed decline from AA and PHL-EDI aligns with the move out of JFK for connecting traffic. Oddly enough this shows the STRENGTH of the IAG/AA JV rather than a weakness at AA as LHR is a BA/AA fortress hub and they can connect easily to GLA whereas EDI has enough pull for inbound US visitors to remain direct.
Will Rouge dump GLA and go daily at EDI next year? Just what are ASG Airports doing so badly wrong? In the biggest boom years any of us have lived through, growth at GLA just has no momentum.

Despite the loss of some routes the figures are steady will be around 10m pax per annum not much of a Mickey Mouse Airport. Expansion finally happening in the International pier at Stand 30 and Immigration arrivals also.

Figures will be well down next year with the loss of Ryanair. This has been chopped, UA gone seasonal, AF were barely here. Wizz cut back most of their routes and even niche routes like Vegas gone for next year.

Pretty naive point of view you are taking.

@GLAEDI steady figures in a fast growing market (see EDI growth rate in comparison) is a relative decline.
GLA continues to lose Scottish market share.
