I thought it was just the international arrivals which was opened. Still, they seem be able to deliver projects faster than some other airports.

were the QR load percentaged (on paper anyway) dire again for May?
One wonders why A350 put on when a 787 half empty. The general public wont get any promo publicised adverts for the Airbus I wouldnt have thoughtif that was the ploy. Yikes, just wait til EK start, Ramadan or not...😯

The business class on the 787 was often full hence the upgrade, the flight does really well with cargo too. Economy passengers are just a bonus.

They're 87% of the capacity of a B787-8, i.e. the overwhelming majority of the traffic, the route needs as much of that cabin filled as possible, it's the cargo that's the bonus.

Indeed, per kg cargo pays much less than PAX - mind you it doesn't whinge and moan if the aircraft is late, or the hold shabby and doesn't expect IFE, WIFI and a decent meal thrown in for nothing!!!!!

on longhaul the rule of thumb is that Business pays for the flight, First pays for the bonuses & economy pays the shareholders

May is not holiday season and Ramadan does play a significant role in reducing traffic to/from the ME.

But that aside, the 350 has had loads exceeding the 788 every day, in both cabins, both ways, since it was introduced on Sunday, so clearly they made the right choice.

Promotional adverts have been placed all over Edinburgh, the airport, local print media and in Glasgow too, so not sure what you're getting at. The route is obviously doing well, apparently that upsets some people greatly and they seemingly can't wait for the demise of QR EDI. Pathetic.

Im happy to hear Qatar are doing well, long may it continue and hopefully Emirates will do well as well.

Based aircraft

Hi I was just wondering how many based aircraft there are by each airline that has a base at EDI and where you can find the information. Also how do you find load factors so I can anwser these types of questions in the future. Many thanks.

June data out +6.7% overall (10.9% on international)

BTW both the Friday am PMI and Saturday Florence flights from BA Cityflyer are loaded for S19. And Vueling BCN will be daily in peak season.

But neither Iberia express or Transavia have yet loaded any S19 flights, and I've no idea whether Norwegian will return to BCN or TFS.

Norwegian seam to have loaded some S19 flights now with Barcelona 6 days per week x Sat but TFS cut to 1 per week on a Sunday? Wieird I have flown wthat route with them a few times and it’s always full. Wonder if that is using metal out of Edinburgh and not based in Tenerife?

I can't find direct flights matching your schedule. The only direct flights loaded for S19 are to Stockholm and Copenhagen.

Sorry you are correct I had not searched using the “direct flight” option, nothing loaded for direct flights. Why the cut back? What are their load factors like this year?

Has there been any news on any new routes or frequency increases? Also Norwegian still not bookable to Barcelona and Tenerife.

Easyjet don't release summer schedules until October, Norwegian no sooner than that. Pure holiday companies release schedules early because they hope that happy customers will immediately sign up for next year.

What more are you expecting? EDI has already announced more than its fair share or new services for the coming winter.

You can't expect new routes to be added on a daily bases...
