Seriously a 763!

I could understand a 757 operating end of May to the end of September.

Also the Lisbon - Boston has come at the expense of Lisbon - Atlanta although I would have thought EDI-JFK is safe with Norwegian ending SWF.

I'm not sure about the aircraft (757 or 767) but I don't think DL on EDI-BOS is ridiculous. I'd heard the same rumour last week.

With the ill-fated 767 DL attempts to ATL, I wonder why they never entertained BOS then. The connection profile at BOS is not hugely different now and way less obviously than their ATL stronghold.

A 763 would make sense as DL are pretty stretched for TATL 752s, and they could just run the route at a less than daily frequency.

Perhaps a 767 could be reinstated for the JFK route given that nonstop capacity to NYC will a little lower than previous years. (Norwegian leaving, AA moving to PHL and UA down to 1 EWR rotation.) That could free up a 757 for BOS.

I thought that the PHL flight was moving to EDI from GLA, rather from the EDI to JFK

Both EDI-JFK and GLA-PHL are being dropped in favour of EDI-PHL.

Does anyone know the full Ryanair timetable as they are adding new routes base by base.

We know that Vigo is being dropped from the end of this month - all Vigo routes are stopping.

Looks like the EY pax shifting to QR. EY numbers for August way down and QR a good bit up. Surprisingly Cardiff catching up quickly on EDI QR numbers.
EK at NCL and GLA both up again.

Norweigan aside, all of the routes to the US have performed very well this summer. Norweigan did blame APD for the failure which would make sense as their loads were good, another problem for Norweigan is that the majority of Scots wouldn’t know where providence was, and that it was so close to Boston, delta wouldn’t have that problem.

Finally some better news as Atlantic Airways are scheduling A320 instead of A319 on 1 of 2 weekly flights for the whole summer season.

Don't get over excited because as your aware Atlantic Airways ''whole summer season'' only lasts between 17 June 2019 to the 19 August 2019 with two flights a week on a Monday (A320) and a Thursday (A319) with additional flights on the 18 April, May 6 and May 13 2019 which are all operated by a A320.

I thought the loads on that Faroes flight were dire on average? Why would you put even more empty seats on it unless its just for scheduling/logistics? Im guessing the operating cost might not be hugely higher

In addition, I expect that cargo makes a significant contribution to its finances. Also, the fares are high compared to other similar length flights.

I dont know if this has already been posted but Munich is to go over to Lufthansa mainline from March instead of Eurowings.

#704! I discovered that by accident when I was at the Eurowings site and realised that there weren't any Munich flights after end March. Makes sense since Easyjet have a daily LCC flight and Munich is LH's second hub.
