It's a summer only route so depends what dates you were looking at, but they are there on their website to book.

Looking at some random dates I only see the A350-900 listed for both flights, no mention anywhere of the A351 being used. I think MAN are getting it as one of their daily rotations in 2020.

Its not. The A359 has different variants.
If you thought double daily with 60% loads was overkill, and A351 most certainly would be.

​​​​​Old Business saying "turnover is vanity, profit is sanity."
Loadfactor can be a red herring on whether a route is profitable and should not be used as judgement of such.

Just look at many FR routes cancelled with high load factors

I'm not sure where this different config A359 chat is coming from. There is only one config- J36 Y247.

The seat map posted above is for the A351 which is not what is showing in the booking engine as operating.

There are two configurations of the A359, 283 seats and 339 seats

They did at one point have A359 with 339 but don't think there are any active in that config currently

QR's A359s only have one config as said. The leased LATAM A359s seat 339, but I don't even think they are still leasing those aircraft? Not that it really matters because 1) they never operated to EDI anyway, 2) they seat less in J than QR's own aircraft, so that wouldn't compute with what has been claimed about an increase in J.

Perhaps tictack67 can expand on where he has seen this increased J capacity...? Just posting a link to an A351 seat map is not really a valid source I'm afraid.

I assume TUI have dropped the previously announced Sunday ski flight to Toulouse? Doesn’t look like it will operate this Sunday which I believe was supposed to be it’s launch date.

The LATAM aircraft are route specific, in full LATAM colours and with their original LATAM seating.
QR C36Y247
LA C30W63Y246

The LATAM one is seemingly tighter!

Presumably they're sharing the BACityflyer charter which starts on Sunday. There's also a Ryanair flight, so no shortage of capacity.

The ongoing grounding of the 737 Max must be having an effect on TUI's flight programme.

Does the based 737 go somewhere else on a Sunday? AIRC in previous winters the PFO flight moved to a Sunday, and the plane had no flight from Edinburgh on a wednesday, (did it fly from Aberdeen?) but this year PFO has remained on Wednesday.

PFO has always been on Wednesdays in winter but Sundays in summer. The final outbound was Christmas Day so there will be one final inbound on New Year’s Day and then the aircraft will presumably be idle on Wednesdays.

Mon - N/A
Tue - TFS
Wed - PFO (Nov/Dec/Apr)
Thu - ACE
Fri - TFS
Sat - GVA/INN (Dec-Mar ski)
Sun - N/A

The aircraft usually goes to MAN or elsewhere for Sunday and Monday. It is currently there and due to return to EDI this evening.

It seems Transavia are moving forward the launch date of Rotterdam to the 27th February instead of April 2nd.

27th February - 2x weekly
2nd April - 4x weekly

A light 'refresh' planned for the BA lounge at EDI next year 2020.

Next year that will change to only Sunday it will be away as the Sharm El Sheikh will be on a Monday, so either it will swap with a MAN based aircraft on a Sunday, undergo routine checks at EDI on a Sunday or they will fill the gap with an extra weekly flight.

Happy new year everyone, It seems Tui have had a big delay on flight BY1265 the Tenerife flight. It was scheduled to land at 18:15 and is now due to land at 02:45! It's also being operated by EC-ISY a privilege style B757-200.
