Presumably this presentation from them is the source (although the dot on the map could perhaps equally be Glasgow).

Yep that's it and I'd go for EDI rather than Glasgow.

As a US airline its main market will be journeys starting in the US. It's well established that EDI has a higher proportion of inbound traffic than any other UK airport outside London, so EDI will be a higher priority than its population would suggest.

Think that means they're still happy for airports to buy them a nice lunch

Why? Is there a reason?

Edinburgh is a bigger tourist draw and I'd have thought with the likes of RBS based there a bigger premium market than Glasgow.

Yet the lower rent tourist element appears already covered by eg DL and I can't see any obvious link between BOS and RBS? Even the RBS office that was once in Boston is long since shut (?2015)
JetBlue tend to break the mould. As I don't see anything happening in next 5 years, a lot of things will have changed by then.

interesting the drops in major hubs... AMS, CDG, IST etc . DOH carried less in Aug than in July and DXB flat with July which is surprising.

Would have thought that June & July figures would have been boosted by Asian students returning home from Universities. Would expect a similar surge for their return in September.

Little or no growth on almost any route which ran last year - except Beijing! The growth has come from the fr routes transferred from Glasgow.

Just been calculating loadfactors on the EDI flights in August and it looks like Stansted is 99% full on average, that's impressive if my calculations are correct!

Why is it impressive when FR have pulled off the route so capacity is squeezed ? If it wasn't full you would be concerned. Most LON airport flights run pretty full.

Did FR not pull off the domestics due to capacity issues caused by the 737 Max ?

Pity the weather was so miserable today for the picture. Sad to see this one go, fingers crossed that they bring it back next summer, or another airline takes up the route.
