Apologies if already posted, but airline route is saying that Delta won't be back until April 29th next year.

Bang goes the promise of 763ís this year then too, which seemed a longshot to start with. Canít imagine anyone is especially surprised.
Will be interesting to see arrangements for end of April 2021 which is a surprise for a return date.

To be fair I don't think theynhave "dropped" EDI

Going forward I can see airlines not putting out traditional Oct & Apr timetables.

All schedules can be taken with a pinch of salt, and routes suspended for a couple of months.

Thankfully EDI still has good number of flights, Glasgow Departures looking sad at the moment with little choice

Qatar

Qatar flights cancelled today and tomorrow, assume the loads are just not there?

Cant see EK starting in October daily if until more long haul destinations restrictions get lifted by the UK /Scottish govs or at the destination itself. IMO

Looking at the departure board over the past few days seams there are very few destinations from EDI with intact air bridges.

According to routesonline EDI-BOS will be cut and EDI-JFK will be Upgauged from a daily B757 to a daily B767-300ER . Good news to see JFK getting made a B767 permanently. All subject to change of course.

Iím booked to fly EDI to Singapore in November (donít think Iíll be going) but despite already having a booking, I get almost daily emails from Qatar urging me to book that route, because flights are filling up fast. I feel they just want to get as much cash as possible, before cancelling the flights and then offering vouchers.

GLA-JFK also cut, so DL feel consolidation is best it appears

Unfortunately not surprising. Qatar barely maintains 3 per week at present. Is GLA pushed back as week or is the focus on maintaining that route?

The fact you need to go through the process of getting a preflight COVId19 teat to fly through Dubai doesnít help. And to be honest there is not many destinations you can currently fly too who donít have their own in bound restrictions. Will put off most holidaymakers for a while.....

GLA has been operating 4 x weekly for a month or so now. Makes sense trying to build up your stronger routes first

Wonder if it's more EK retreating with competition at EDI from Turkish & Qatar for connections. So best to stay where they don't face much competition.

In an Irish newspaper that EDI and MAN are among the airports aiming to have EI base their A321LR at.
