Two year-round services to the US though (even if DL will be 4 per week in Jan and Feb) is good going.

It very much depends on the time of day. Last time I took a bus out of the airport it took 30 minutes to get out of the airport on to the M8.

What frequency cut are you referring to? DL operated five weekly in winter 18-19, with no flights during January and February. This coming winter it's on sale as daily but four weekly during January and February, so a substantial increase in the number of seats. DL spokesperson quoted in today's Scotsman as saying that the route does 'really, really well' (source).

UA's load factors from November 18 to March 19 (with credit to a poster elsewhere) were respectively: 88%, 94%, 86%, 90% and 93%.

And last winter was the first time UA was daily throughout. Previously the Wednesday flight was dropped during the winter months.

Substantial increase this winter. Some people revel in negativity around EDI even when it doesnít exist.

All seems to have gone quiet so with airlines adding more new frequencys and routes from Edinburgh, does anyone have any rumours?

I heard Cathay were still talking about Hong Kong and Tui have some new routes in the pipeline, but we will have to wait and see if anything comes to fruition, I have also heard grumblings about Icelandair once the Max issue is fixed and United to make Chicago year round, but once again its just wait and see at the moment.

Best regards.

Any more info on TUI rumours? I know they are adding NAP next year and bringing back AYT (was done before) but that is replacing RHO which will be dropped. Would be nice to see regular long-haul or even just a slightly longer season of it, or more short-haul flights. Surely EDI could sustain at least a second based aircraft soon enough?

Chicago operated until the 27th October last year but is on sale only until the 4th October this year. That doesn't strike me as the actions of an airline considering operating the route year round.

They did start the route earlier this year though.

True, but only by five days (started 30/4 this year, 5/5 last) so I think my point still stands.

Isn’t transatlantic ORD in winter headwinds pushing the limits on B757 range? When AA used one on MAN-ORD, reliability tanked due to frequent fuel stops.

Yep. They'll need to upgrade to a 767 if they want to operate reliably during the winter. With American and Delta now operating during the winter - i'm not sure there's going to be enough demand to justify it. We'll see though.

Whilst the facts could always be embellished slightly by the press but if Gordon Dewar did throw himself at the taxi whilst it was trying to move, then not only it is absurd behaviour for a CEO of an airport to conduct themselves in such a manner but it's unsafe too.

A quick word with the taxi driver would have sufficed to explain who he was and that he had taken a photo of the rear of the taxi to show where he was parked as well as the registration and taxi plate. Furthermore, he would be passing the photo on to the police and leave it to them to handle the matter, as they wish.

Nice to see the smaller EK 772LR operating instead of the 773 for a change.
