In light of current climate in industry, recent incidents and a bit of issue with this company in the past, why would you ever book with this sort of outfit. My sympathy ever so slightly wavering...

To be fair, not everybody is as well-briefed with what's happening in the travel industry as many on this forum.

Impressive. Must be doing well. Really needs twice daily for all the connections.
Hopefully not at expense of any MUC capacity.

Great news for Glasgow and further to the Lufthansa news, Air Transat has announced plans to increase capacity on the Glasgow Toronto route which will be 5x weekly all A330 next summer.

Very good news indeed, shows Lufthansas commitment to GLA! Also Luthansa will be decreasing MUC-GLA from 5x weekly to 2x weekly, which is a shame as that was a useful service at good frequency. But still an overall increase from Lufthansa which is great to see.

Looks like the increase might be at the expense of capacity to MUC. MUC is being reduced to 2 x weekly and is set to only operate from 31st May to 6th September. Flights operated 5 x weekly. S19

EDI-MUC is increasing from 3 weekly to 7 weekly for next summer, so it looks like the capacity is being transferred to there instead.

I think that remains to be seen looking at the booking classes availability for next year.

I believe it is in addition to the daily easyJet to Munich and not Eurpwings

Great news for Glasgow double daily to Frankfurt hope it gets upgraded to A321 like Edinburgh is in summer

No, I wouldn't have thought so

Meanwhile... I see ACr YYZ flights loaded for S20. Seems same schedule as last year, so TS A330 upgauge doesn't seem to have made any changes..... for now

I remember the discussion about the runway 23 displaced threshold but at the time there was only speculation about why it was there. Has the airport ever mentioned it in any of their plans?

Will be a placeholder, there's nothing to prevent an up-gauge to an A330, they're still two different airlines at the moment I think?

I think LM will drop their own flight pretty quick.

I wouldnt say that was great news. LM flights a slow burner with lowish loads. Not enough to maintain two carriers. Would be surprised if BE could generate huge new pax numbers. Unless with their new found renewed friendship its a codeshare.
So much for environmentally friendly!
SEN is a dud for domestic with longish train journey to London.
