Wasn’t the DUS route the one that LH moved to GLA from EDI a few years ago because they felt it was the stronger market? Does not appear to have been the case after all.

I thought they moved it because they got a subsidy from the Route Development Fund. As I recall, EDI protested at the Fund being used to poach their existing route.

Here's the article with Gordon Dewar's claims:

https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.c...sgow-1-2692118

EDINBURGH Airport boss Gordon Dewar today claimed public money was being used to give rivals Glasgow an unfair advantage.

He alleged taxpayers’ cash had been handed out in a successful attempt to lure flights away from the Capital

His claim follows the decision by German airline Lufthansa to switch its six-flights-a-week Dusseldorf service from Edinburgh to Glasgow from next April.

Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, which is funded by Glasgow City Council, has confirmed it provided up to £40,000 in marketing support, which it said would help increase passenger volumes.

presumably all before the reorganisation of LH ops (2hrs on a EW Dash8?) and subsequent launch of daily FRA and upguaged Munich which have taken the bulk of the German traffic and are much preferred.
Nothing to see here.

That was 6 years ago, the market will have changed considerably by now with the addition of FRA/MUC, both of which appear to be doing well.

I have positioned on the Eurowings GLA-DUS at various points this year and the flights have been over 70 pax every time. Looking at the pax profile it appears more a leisure market from the German side, so not sure how the loads hold up during the winter. They also appear to take a lot of onward connecting passengers as well.

DUS from GLA had come and gone over the years. It's a shame that GLA cannot it appears hold this German route even if other German destinations apparantly seem reasonable loaded, although not sure what the yields are. DUS is a busy airport.

Going from no mainline German destinations to 3 with a finite travelling population was always going to be a struggle. I think most are far happier having FRA than a Dash 8 prop to DUS.

2 hours? Quite sure that is not correct - certainly not for flight time. As regards the desirability of FRA, taxiing for at least 20 minutes to a remote stand for offloading and a bus ride of another 20 minutes to the terminal never seemed like an efficient use of time to me. Yes, FRA and MUCH have more connections than DUS, because they are the major LH hubs. But DUS has access to far more industry for the business flier. There is definitely market differentiation between DUS and FRA and, for that matter, DUS and/or FRA and MUC.

Any news regarding confirmation of Eurowings?

Hopefully Loganair do get the slots to the German airports. GLA could do with a bit of good news on the routes front.

Some good news for GLA, for once:

https://www.glasgowairport.com/media...-20-000-seats/
Blue Air increases capacity on Bucharest route by 20,000 seats


Glasgow Airport has welcomed Blue Air’s decision to add further services to Bucharest on the airline’s winter schedule this year and in summer 2019.The current winter schedule will increase from two flights per weeks every Thursday and Sunday to include an additional Monday service.From April 5 next year the summer schedule will increase from three flights per week every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday to include an additional Friday service.Blue Air’s Bucharest service was first launched at Glasgow Airport in 2015 and the Romanian city continues to be a popular destination for leisure and business travellers.Paul White, Head of Aviation at Glasgow Airport, said: “Bucharest is one of Romania’s most culturally-significant cities and is steeped in history. This stunning city is also Romania’s industrial and financial centre, so there continues to be a high demand for these flights from our passengers. “The Bucharest route is also very popular with Scotland’s thriving Romanian community, given it is Scotland’s only existing flight to the southeastern European country, so Blue Air’s decision to significantly increase its capacity is welcome news indeed.”

Some good long-haul news at long last; year round New York flights are to return after the UA reductions last year. Delta seem to be increasing the JFK route to year round in W19, but it's not bookable yet, according to
.

Im yet to be comvinced that is based on a formal/official source and for truly year round. Its just something that someones posted on various forums so naturally starts to become gospel...
