The Korean Air return trip on the 7th June tech stopped in Yerevan on the way back to Seoul. Problems with the Russian overflight clearance for the return sector I suspect?

No. Was a planned stop and from arriving empty there, operated another flight now carrying passengers onward back to Seoul.

Is it too early to tell what impact EK starting to flights from EDI is having on bookings from GLA? Hopefully it shouldn't have too much effect (I like to see all Scottish airports do well).

On another question, is it likely that with FR moving most of their flights to EDI, GLA will be unlikely to break the 10 million passengers mark this year?

Cheers

I had a return to OZ via Dubai from Glasgow. I have called them up and I was able to switch it from and to Edinburgh, so those that have already a booking from Glasgow who live near Edinburgh may switch their booking, which may affect current booked flights. I am in Y class but was able to change for 0

I agree it is great news for both Scottish airprts

I wondered if they might let people do that.

Ryanair will base 3 aircraft in Southend and pull out of Glasgow, according to this FT article.
Mr O’Brien also said Ryanair would stop its operations from Glasgow airport at the end of the summer, “not to be reopened for the foreseeable future”, because of the airport’s remoteness, decreasing demand and high air passenger duty.

The remoteness to GLA's geography towards Glasgow is easily solved by Ryanair's continued commitment to Glasgow-Prestwick. In Ayrshire.
I got nothing anymore, what's the point?

I assumed that someone just fat-fingered the "excuses" pulldown menu in the Ryanair insta-press-release generator.

Probably more like the deal they got to move to Glasgow is about to run out and they would have to pay the same rate as anyone else.

I saw that quote earlier and it confused me a little. The "remoteness" comment made absolutely no sense. I wondered if they meant Prestwick for a minute, and had just called it "Glasgow" out of laziness. The quote also seems to read like it's a complete pullout, however the original intention was for a handful of routes to remain. Are these still to continue through the winter?

When Ryanair announced, at the end of February, the pullout from GLA after Oct 2018 and increases at Edinburgh, they blamed the high level of APD at GLA. Maybe its the remoteness that pushes up the APD?

They retain routes from Prestwick because it's a maintenance base. A frame leaving on one of its routes will swap its crew at the destination with a frame due to come in.

The relationship between GLA and Ryanair appears to be worsening, well, what's left of it anyway.

Ryanair appear to be suspending many GLA flights from August rather than the end of October as originally planned.

I'm sure Loganair can save the utterly useless 'Team GLA'.

Are you referring to GLA management as "utterly useless"? If so, in what way?

In previous years they would have been operating a full summer schedule during September and October, but filling the a/c at fares which were barely covering their marginal costs. Perfect sense to drop marginal routes and cut the frequency on the core summer lines.

The only way I see Ryanair having any additional presence at GLA again is if Prestwick's commercial ops goes belly up.

EDI will take the Ryanair aircraft currently based at PIK, IMO.

Stansted and Warsaw are core summer routes?

From a look at the timetable it appears one of the two based aircraft is now leaving the base 2 months early and a search on social media would indicate these cancellations started happening a week or two ago... Found quite a few of these kinds of reports out there; https://metro.co.uk/2018/06/23/woman...isbon-7654901/
