This is already happening and has been for a while with QR30 and QR32.

I think these are supplementary flights rather than a new service, possibly to coincide with the end of summer holidays. I noticed there were extra flights in the QR2**** series yesterday to LHR, MAN and CDG and another to MAN today. The timings, close to the scheduled services supports this. I would be surprised if they continued more than a few days.

QR currently operate 2 flights a day on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The frequency will return to daily from the start of the Winter schedule on 27th October

Jet2 have uploaded their preliminary schedule for W20/21 here are some of the changes, subject to change:
∑Tenerife South goes up 1x weekly from 4x to 5x weekly
∑Gran Canaria goes up 1x weekly from 2x to 3x weekly
∑Lanzarote has an extra weekly flight during peak times
∑Antalya becomes year round 1x weekly

Still not available for booking:
Geneva, Vienna, Salzburg and Budapest

I would think maybe Budapest may be uploaded later but we shall see as Wizzair and Ryanair are competitive on this route.

Wizzair to increase Budapest from 3x to 5x weekly next summer, must be getting good forward bookings.

I can't imagine that Jet2 will continue Budapest, unless for some Christmas weekends, possibly. Only a few years ago, it was their only AYR destination from Edinburgh.

or simply a tactic to take on the competition. Expect some great loss leader deals to Budapest over the next 6-9 months. Something will give

Good to see Turkish have subbed in A330-300 TC-JOF on the Istanbul flight today, nice change from the B737.

I'm guessing there will be lots of empty seats on that particular flight!

Not neccessarily, perhaps someone has block booked a significant number of seats hence requiring the upgrade?

there is a TK 737 parked up on the new hard standing area. So may have gone tech yesterday.

Excellent to see Qatar Airways full in business class on both directions last week. Glad it seems to hold up to increased frequencies on bigger aircraft even with Emirates coming to town (as good as Ethihad were, they are no match to the Emirates network).

Seems so variable, for example tomorrow 18+ J seats still available. Are Q Suites regularly available?

I did EDI-DOH-JNB and back again in J all full but all on -900 so no QSuite for me sadly. Reading online seems like it would be rare (I.e. thatís the only plane available). Shame if it isnít consistently busy, the 3 of us parted way with £10k between us on the company so hopefully that helps keep it going!

as expected, EZY to launch BHX from EDI as well as GLA. Talk about overcapacity...
I am guessing that this and FlyBe schedule will not remain the same the following season...

Wow good news to see EasyJet expand again, but I also think the route is going to see some changes in the next few seasons, we may see Flybe leave the route soon as well.

Edinburgh cant stop announcing new routes!

Assuming that the EZY flights are at business-friendly times, Flybe will lose their most profitable customers, putting the whole route at risk. EDI to BHX could end up with just two flights per day rather than seven. Most of the traffic goes by train already.
