From EDI, EZY operate domestic rotations in the first wave (LGA, STN, LTN, BRS, BFS), and then the frames go to continental destinations such as Berlin and Geneva at a more civilised hour. Seems to work.

More Spain/Canaries and Turkey will be the fillers. Dull but profitable im sure. Though TFS will no doubt go down a storm and BCN always seems underserved. MAD would have been nice.

Just checked some Flybe fares. £34 each way doesnt seem like gouging. Probably last minute fares are higher...

Ďin all years Iíve been doing GLA (and EDI) to BHX Iíve never seen a fade as low as that. I tend to fly at fairly short notice to be fair and at peak times and as a result fares are higher. However I still maintain that having a monopoly FlyBe have milked the route and maybe the fares youíve quoted are now a response to the EZY announcement?

The Canadian shareholder meeting for TS/AC quoted
"Air Canada plans to preserve the Transat and Air Transat brands and maintain the Transat head office and its key functions in Montreal. Travellers will benefit from the combined companies"

Suppose that still doesn't mean there won't be consolidation. Can we honestly expect ACr and TS to continue to operate GLA-YYZ in parallel (in summer total 8 times per week)?

GLA figures missing from the CAA provisional July stats.

Looks like A380 on the PM rotation with EK to DXB confirmed again and bookable for S20. I heard this forms part of a 3 year 'deal' to stick with the A380 on the route.
I think we all know what might happen after that...

From another forum it was not difficult to notice a high percentage of low density A388's that were used in August and per FR24 it seems 20 out of 31 flights on EK27 were either 489 or 491 seat aircraft. Was this pre-planned or right-sizing for the route? I originally thought these low density aircraft were usually used on ultra long-haul due to the extra crew rest space but it appears it is not that unusual as they do appear on other European and shorter Middle Eastern routes as well..

A nice positive increase in DXB for July up 3%. Not bad with all the extra A380 seats and flood of capacity at EDI

New route with Loganair to East midlands replacing the Flybe flight which is ending at the same time, overall a reduction in seats.

Good news though to see Loganair expand more!

Blimey, Loganair really are the great survivor of my childhood. They're now back on most of the routes that they lost to Manx(Europe) or lost to the locos. There IS a place for UK domestic aviation outside London even in the age of Greta Thunderbird.

Some over-hyped, under-age eco - warrior. Someone who preaches to us that we must not fly whilst her little helpers flog around the sky to ensure she can stand on a soap box, and her followers can jet in from all around the world to hear her pearls of wisdom and prophesies of doom.

It just seems like yesterday that Loganair and Flybe were knocking lumps out of each other on GLA-MAN.

A lot more people losing their holidays. Surely they knew before the day of flights they didnít have any planes.

Flylolo used Air Europa often for their Spanish flights but TBH I dont know if they even had a contract for the series with anyone if you look at their SOU S19 flight sales dabble/debacle
