"Wee-Frees" have visited, lived and worked in London for centuries. What will shock them is when they sit beside a Glasgow passenger who is only paying 40% of what they have been charged despite the Glasgow passenger flying 2/3 of the overall distance. They may decide to travel to Inverness and join another carrier there. Loyalty is a two-way street.

What was the complex triangle loads for the EDI Hainan sector for Jan? theyve thus far perceived to have been pretty dire. Perhaps peak summer only would suit them better. Would be surprised if a lot of outbound buisness users would choose them as first choice with so many better options

Itís is Chinese tour operators flight for CAISSA and a freight truck. Donít be fooled by the scheduled label.
Same applies at Manchester Brussels and Dublin.OH and to all those 2 weekly Heathrow HNA Group flights to those thertiary Chinese cities no one had ever heard of a few years ago.
They will take the businessmans money but itís not their primary income stream.
BTW really the numbers of UK businessman traveling to China remain far smaller than many think or expect and when they do go Beijing is rarely where they actually want to go - No that remains Hong Kong and Shanghai period stop- You do your deals in these cities with your Chinese brokers and mainland contacts. They then sort out the logicitics and a few month later a container full of c**p arrives at your warehouse gates.

1666 passengers for Hainan = 185 passengers per round trip / 92 one-way passengers. I don't think Dublin has a monthly breakdown of routes. Allowing the capacity of the aircraft to be sold equally for EDI and DUB means the loads were around 62%

For comparison, MAN averaged 432 passengers per round trip / 216 one-way passengers = 74% loads

The Chinese aviation industry is smoke and mirrors and built on sand . Itís far from a western capitalist model of profit and loss rather its the very centre of the Chinese Global Power Push and momentum and all those pretty colours are a sharade!
The purse strings and route growth dynamics are purely a party drive - indeed targets are set by both central and regional Communist Party dictates and right from the very top - Xi Jinping himself - and his aim of world dominance within the next thirty years
One thing the Chinese authorities are exceptionally good is playing the long game !

Great Dane Airlines have now put their Aalborg-Edinburgh route on sale. Not particularly impressed with the timings on this route - can't figure out the target audience

Sorry should have made it clear, it will be Jet2, but I believe the Edinburgh team are at routes Asia trying to talk to Airlines like Cathay and China Eastern. They also want an increase from Emirates but I dont believe that will happen for a while.

Norwegian are suspending all B737 MAX8 operations, so Edinburgh routes to America affected. Also UK CAA have banned all MAX operations into and through UK airspace.

It stops in two weeks anyway, even though some of the fares in the final weeks are quite high, suggesting that loads are decent.

Thats great news, and with all the new routes for S19 I think this will be another record breaking year.
