I agree, Sturgeon is point scoring the entire time. She never has anything positive to say. Simply wants to create fear amongst the population then offer them a way out by wearing face masks and chanting how awful the real Government is.

On a lighter note I'm operating an EDI-Palma flight on Saturday. The booked load is almost full for the way down so people do want to get away, even to Spain.

Have a good one, C172. I wasn’t going to reply to the usual snippy drivel. The ‘likes of me’ are entitled to my views which I believe resonates with half of Scotland anyway. The oh so tedious political and obvious point scoring is one thing but the complete disregard for the aviation and ancillary businesses is extremely depressing. The SG is economically illiterate and the livelihoods of the airport employees do not appear to feature or concern Sturgeon. I used to fly out of Edinburgh for years and I am gutted for my former colleagues ( orange and silvery red variety).

Cheers

What evidence to you have to say who is doing it right?

Just because it inconveniences your organisation or roster isn't evidence enough.

Florida had had 30,000 new cases in last 2 days.

On 12/07/20 Catalonia had 816 NEW covid cases

On 13/02020 Scotland had 6

At this time of year there would be, I think, nearly 20 flights a week from EDI to Palma. At present, just 2. So 90 % of the usual travellers are, wisely, staying home.

Alarming re Catalonia.

Anyone any idea why the Air China flight yesterday showed up on the Departures listing but not Arrivals?

And whether they will be back?

Cheers

It was a repatriation flight. Possibly students returning home at the end of term? AFAIK, that's the last of three repatriation flights.

Odd that EDI only route to go down from widebody 763 to 738. Maybe the only destination within range. DY did it no bother. Suppose if having to be transferred to Mainline, even though a small narrowbody, it should have a variation of AC business class which might be a plus if any of the usual leisure pax fancy it.

Am I right that Norwegian have suspended flights to Oslo until September 1? Although SAS start tomorrow.

Article also expects further changes to be announced so would not be supposed to see GLA change too, weirdly it still both Rouge 767and AC mainline 738m flights To EDI.

I believe this is an increase to 4 flights a week.

Air Canada used to fly St Johns to LHR In A320 before.

I suppose telling comfort factors will be in the seat pitch, not the size of the aircraft.

Great to see Turkish Airlines Istanbul upgraded to A321 a couple of times a week, others on B737
