Agree with others; the extra J and cargo capacity are probably the reason for this.
From a quick look at the CAA stats for the last three months, I don't think extra cargo capacity is the reason

I've not been clear - my comment was around Qatar changing from the B787 to the A350.

We are talking Manchester but the Long haul flights from the states have been dropped

so caused a 4% drop in cargo

You might be talking Manchester, but this is the EDI thread!

No idea - but the CAA stats for Sept, Oct, Nov shows that freight carried on Non EU scheduled operations is 20/30 tonnes a month for EDI, approx. 700t for NCL and 1500t for GLA. The NCL figures will be all on the daily EK 777, and presumably GLA is mainly EK as well.

If this is right, the EDI figures look extremely low and suggest QR aren't in the need of extra freight capacity, unless the 787 is subject to restriction on the freight it can carry.

I've tried to look at these figures before and there's something just not right. I think the overall totals are correct but the sub-totals just don't make sense.

For example, the CAA stats for March show either unreported or zero freight carried by "other overseas operators" on scheduled services, yet the following photo taken on the 15th of that month shows that can't be the case-

yet, as we're told elsewhere... dont base performance on a single month (or should that be photograph....)
Wonder where most of the profits are generated on a passenger aircraft? yield managed full cabins or filling an empty hold with freight instead of pax luggage. Guess, in this scenario we'll only know if they keep plodding on outwith peak with low passenger loads

But were you delayed by 18 hours leaving EDI though? A small delay can of course lead to a misconnection, but that's hardly unique to QR.

According to the Scotsman today QR is actually the most punctual airline at EDI, based on CAA figures, so yes, last week appears to be an isolated incident. As unfortunate as it was for those involved.

New routes for the summer to Seville and Jersey from Easyjet.
New year, new routes

Two new routes have been added to the summer offering at Edinburgh Airport after easyJet announced they will operate flights to Seville and Jersey from March.
Both routes will be twice weekly through the summer season and will come into operation from the 26th of March and the 31st of March respectively.
It increases the number of destinations from Scotland’s busiest airport to 146.
Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar said:
“The New Year always brings fresh opportunities and adventures, and we’re delighted to be able to offer two new summer destinations to passengers in Seville and Jersey. We know choice is important and these new routes only add to the huge selection we already have – and it’s never too early to be planning that next trip!
“We have a strong relationship with easyJet and the fact they are continuing to grow at Edinburgh is a sign of their commitment to Scotland’s busiest airport and of the success we have had already and will continue to enjoy in 2018 and beyond.”
Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager commented:
“We’re really pleased to be adding even more routes to our Edinburgh network and to be putting flights on sale today, allowing our customers to book early and take advantage of our lowest fares for both leisure and business travel.
“easyJet is the largest airline in Scotland and we have been committed to Edinburgh for over 22 years. We are proud to have carried more than over 41 million passengers in that time.
“We’re committed to expansion at Edinburgh and the addition of new routes will help us to deliver long term, sustainable growth, providing passengers with a greater range of destinations, all with low fares and great service.”

There were a lot of routes operated with larger a/c than normal, eg a 320 instead of a 319, or at a higher frequency. One day this week SAS had two flights to Stockholm taking the revellers home.

SK are increasing the frequency of there flights to ARN this summer to 13 x Weekly. That’s more than double the frequency operated during S17 (6 x Weekly). SK plan to use the following aircraft to op the route:

A319 - 3 a week
A320 - 1 a week
CRJ900 - 3 a week
737-700 - 4 a week
737-800 - 2 a week

Info based on schedule for mid July 18

The Helsinki route will go AYR after it resumes in March. 3/wk in winter. Being promoted as the quickest way to China - 6-8 hrs shorter using the ME3 because Finnair have rights to use Russian airspace.

Surely its not the Russian airspace permit that makes AY quicker than the ME3, but it is avoiding the 'dog-leg' flying south to the Gulf that makes them quicker. BA and other European carriers fly a similar routing to the Far East, except most of these carriers have to fly an extra 90 minutes or so before starting out across northern Russia. With AY from the UK regions, you avoid the initial back-track to LHR/AMS/CDG/FRA so save a considerable amount of time.
