I see that the MAX8 returned last night, and the most southerly route I can recall: SW to over Shannon and then West.

The winds aloft over the Atlantic dictate the NATS OTS ( organised track system) especially west bound, this past week the westerly winds have been >150 knots + some west bound tracks have been North of Iceland, I know of one crew that did SNN from SWF in around 5:05

Record number continuing...

More than 1.2 million passengers used Edinburgh Airport in October, making it the busiest October on record for the terminal.
It’s the seventh consecutive month with over one million passengers using Scotland’s busiest airport.
A total of 1,226,109 people came through the terminal in October, an increase of 8.5% on the same month last year.
International passengers continued to surge, up 12.4% on October 2016 at 760,296.

I always assumed it was used by the Faroese coming to do their Christmas shopping, which is why it continues until the turn of the year. What are the fares like? It may not matter if it's not full.

Typically circa £200 - £335 return when I've checked so the yield should be better than the load factors might indicate. I wonder how much cargo, mail and parcels they carry. That might add to the financial viability. Also excess baggage.

+ 8.7% in November, entirely due to International growth.

Donít expect December to be that good, especially with the number of cancellations over the past few weeks. Was one of the unlucky today whoís flight to Birmingham was cancelled at the last minute.

Etihad reduces Edinburgh frequency in peak S18 (August) to 5 weekly in line with other months, disappointing and does this point towards further reductions?
Plenty other UK airports with new route activity for 2018 with TUi, Flybe, Wizz and Ryanair etc; but see very little coming EDIís direction. Potential to harm growth.....
Apart from Washington DC (at the expense on a Newark rotation) no new long haul.
Does anyone have knowledge of anything new in the offering?

The increase to daily in August wasn't made until March this year, so still time for that to happen again if they want.

As for overall growth, Ryanair are currently +40ish rotations a week for S18 compared to S17 and that will bring healthy growth alone...

Norwegian recruiting for EDI based flight crew so not sure if they have anything up their sleeve, I'm not sure when MAX deliveries are due to recommence?

Etihad are reducing quite a few frequencies on their various routes, so EDI not alone in that regard.

Actually, apart from Jet2 at STN and BHX, there's relatively little growth elsewhere, certainly not enough to replace Monarch. Wizz have dropped several routes.
The main growth is in routes aimed at inbound tourists.

BTW, Ryanair seem to have pulled the summer Bremen flights.

In Oban maybe it has passed you by about the Wizz expansion at Luton, seven based aircraft and a host of new routes with more to come.

They have increased slightly at Luton. The based aircraft are mainly operating existing routes. They have dropped many routes from smaller airports such as Liverpool and, I believe, even Glasgow.

Yep they have been making cuts at their regional British ops. BHX, GLA, LPL, BRS, BFS, DSA have all experienced cuts of some sort. Looks like their UK focus is pretty much Luton for the foreseeable future.

Have you forgotten about MAN as there is plenty of growth there by Jet2,Easy,TCX
and by early new year almost all the Monarch capacity will be replaced plus growth
