Have Ryanair finished loading W19 flights? Because if so, they're dropping STN. FR have become so dependent on ancillary income (priority seats, extra bag, scratch cards etc) that it must be difficult to make a profit on commuter flights.

Good to see Laudamotion at Edinburgh, This is a good addition. And Ryanair are just finalising their W19 timetable the now, and I expect Stansted will be loaded up soon.

Today a Ba Cityflyer plane from London city to Dusseldorf, made an accidental landing in Edinburgh after the incorrect paperwork was filed.

Wow air flights are canceled to Reykjavik as the airline is filing for bankruptcy.

I would have thought that there might be a reasonable prospect of Icelandair opening an EDI route once they have sufficient aircraft flying again.

Would Icelandair start flights from EDI in competition with their established service from Glasgow? Doubt it. More likely that EZY increase their service.

I was thinking more that with Norwegian having thrown in the transatlantic towel and Wow going, there might be enough transatlantic traffic to support ops from GLA and EDI.

A few new services this week
·Loganair daily to Islay
·Ryanair 3x weekly to Luxembourg
·Qatar begin 8th weekly service
·Flybe add 5th daily Heathrow service
·Lufthansa add 3rd weekly service to Munich

Along with this American will start their daily Philadelphia service on B757 and Ryanair will add 2 weekly service to Billund, this will require an 9th aircraft to be based.

All this leads to some healthy growth after the recent reductions and cuts.

Surely the Munich is a cut since it replaces a daily Eurowings?

I thought the Lufthansa service was to operate alongside the Eurowings service?

Didn't look that far ahead. Presumably peak season only?

Year round with a 6ish week break in Jan/Feb. Not sure why it isn't operating in April and May. Perhaps deemed too short a lead time after they put it back on sale at the end of Dec.
