EK at EDI in Oct CAA stats doing an amazing start! 13K in the first month on less than daily, will leapfrog NCL soon I expect. Huge impact on GLA service- down 14%, the dizzy heights of month on month growth are gone and Id be surprised if an A380 could salvage that.
And even with all that.. QR up significantly!

GLA still had an 80% load factor so still decent, overall EK passengers up by around 7k in Scotland, plenty room for all. Great to see QR holding up strong, obviously they have the advantage of being in OneWorld. Long may it continue.

QR have done a great job of marketing the A350. Good to see a very decent start for EK.

Dubai - 13341 - 58 sectors = 230 per flight and 64% load factor per my calculations using FR24 for number of flights and 360 three-class aircraft although some 354 seat did operate. Unless I have my figures wrong I would not say amazing? I would say 90% load factor is amazing 75-90% would be good and 60-75% average but I suppose for the first month it isn't bad but amazing is generous.

Qatar just made 70% load factor which is okay especially when compared to BHX, CWL and MAN.

Munich to go year round in 2019

Hot of the press:

“Lufthansa is extending Munich – Edinburgh service in S19, becoming a year-round operation. From 31MAR19, Airbus A319 aircraft will serve this route 3 times a week” c/o Routes Online

Since this route is moving over entirely to LH from Eurowings from S19, this is actually a reduction in frequency, since between them they fly daily ex Tuesday in W18. Or will Eurowings be returning?

Looks suspiciously like a reduction as no direct fights appear on the Eurowings S19 schedule for Munich. Seams a strange decision?

I believe that their policy is that the longhaul hubs will be served by LH and other destinations, DUS and CGN, by Eurowings. Of course Easyjet fly daily most of the year.

I was at LHR last night and I have to say, seeing the q400 next to an airport bursting with a380s is the daftest thing.... it was part of what was a very large queue to leave on a busy runway and I have to say I almost didn’t notice it next to the sea of 777, a380s and virgin 787s in the queue haha.

The CAA stats say 2503 passengers in October, but I can't remember how many to that covers.

That's just the EDI non stop pax. Total route capacity for the month was 8348 (large number of B789 subs, if it was all B788 as is scheduled 7242), so it's not great based on pax demand alone. However, the large number of upgrades when there seems to be no need for it based on pax demand could suggest high cargo loads.

EDI has been carrying comfortably more than DUB on the non stop routings up to this stage so I don't expect the DUB non stop figure to be anything special either. For example, the EDI Oct figure is comparable to what DUB carried in August.

It's not entirely surprising, as the route is hardly the most attractive or convenient option in it's current state.

With Royal Air Maroc joining OneWorld it got me thinking that it was a little bit surprising that FR or U2 haven't tried running RAK from EDI.

I know U2 used to operate GLA-RAK, but unless my memory is hazy neither operator has operated EDI-RAK?

FR did flights operate to RAK a few years ago from EDI.

Dont remember U2 ever serving Morocco from Scotland but I could be wrong.

EZY- GLA RAK 2014, pulled apparently due to Tunisia/Morroco North African downturn. Carried reasonable numbers.
