As planned, nice to see the FI 753 back on some of the KEF rotations. Constant growth on this route for a while despite low cost ops to KEF elsewhere.
I see WOW are planning to reduce the EDI service.

I think FI will be doing a roaring trade given that UA have withdrawn their winter ops at GLA.

Yes , a foolhardy decision by UA it seems , with the increasing likelihood of year round ops with DL to JFK from next winter !

Seven aircraft diverted to PIK as EDI would not accept any diversions. Only the BA LGW flight cancelled

That’s going to be a very expensive insurance claim. The only grace for BA is that BA maintainance should be able to patch up the aircraft

Wizz Air dropping Gdansk. From a peak of 8 destinations to now just two, it's a shame to see the Wizz network from GLA deteriorate. Hopefully we don't see a complete pull out, but I wouldn't be surprised if we do.

Thats Brexit all over, Wizz scaling back UK regional ops as a result.

Obviously partly Brexit but also with improving economies in the former Eastern Bloc countries quite a lot of people are going home which also reduces demand

Think it was inevitable on these boom and bust type of inbound migration routes. Very little outbound tourism.
Will be more to come.
Surprised Wizz dont try some alternative non Eastern bloc routes.

I think it's now fair to strongly discredit the source which claimed there would be an A380 announcement in November.

Formally closed for 50 mins with some holding and some ultimately diverting.
Difficult scenario of warming temps delivering rain onto frozen ground temps. Hard to predict and on a minute by minute basis. Last aircraft to try was a FR 737 from DUB but abandoned and left for PIK. Some of the BAs went to EDI but held and then ferried over to GLA.

Looks like the funding from all parties for any ongoing further development of Glasgow rail link (in any form) has been put on hold...
Doesnt bode well.

Sums up the Scottish Parliament as a whole.

Surprised to see all the summer KL Scottish cuts to AMS. 3x day is very low for GLA

Impressive No.10, would be good to resurge the ailing central NY market in and out of GLA
