Ok, thanks.

Also we might see some go-arounds and diversions today when the wind gets up. Or there might be diversions from other airports. This will be an interesting day.

is there a reason why BA have cancelled disproportionately and significantly more flights from EDI (8) than at Glasgow (3) today due to the weather in the UK?

Is it the conditions at EDI or is it to do with a predecessor flight from Europe being cancelled?

There are far more options to get rid of /rebook cancelled passengers

And after all the weather trouble yesterday, there is now heavy snow with strong winds leading to potential blizzards later on. Doesn't look too bad right now but that could change as the day goes on.

AA one week aircraft change to B767-300

https://www.routesonline.com/news/38...craft-changes/

B757 Aircraft maintenance?

Are the load factors strong enough for AA to extend this increase over the summer?

The 757 was nowhere near full all summer so I would suspect not. Although 767 can carry significant more cargo. Seems odd month to choose for upguage if purely about capacity. When is Easter this year?

The week after I believe. I'd suggest it's probably due to 757 unavailability. Still, the service seems to be doing well since it transferred from GLA. This year is it;'s earliest start yet

It certainly has; 2019 saw 63,347 passengers fly between EDI and PHL compared with 2018 where 42,167 flew between GLA and PHL. Historical data suggests:
  • 2014: EDI to PHL at 33,733, GLA to PHL at 43,597
  • 2015: EDI to PHL at 0, GLA to PHL at 42,696
  • 2016: EDI to PHL at 0, GLA to PHL at 36,292
  • 2017: EDI to PHL at 0, GLA to PHL at 39,691
  • 2018: EDI to PHL at 0, GLA to PHL at 42,167
  • 2019: EDI to PHL at 63,347, GLA to PHL at 0

Not quite like for like though - if you offer more flights you will get more pax in general. October 2019 EDI -PHL was 8352 and in October 2018 PHL-GLA was nil and there were also more rotations in May 2019 compared to May 2018.

Having said that it only accounts for around 10000 pax so yes PHL - Scotland has grown by at least 20% but you also have to remember AA switched JFK for PHL as well.

Just taking one month alone, Transatlantic passenger numbers in October 2019 were down 30% on 2018 but of course you have to factor in the Norwegian withdrawal but another example how you can interpret passenger figures.

Very true but a longer season is also a positive so either way you look at it, more passengers, more flights = the route performing well since the move east.

Whilst I don't think this short term upgrade is capacity related, the S19 load factors were 79% April/ 87% May/ 88% in June,July,August & October/ 85% September. I think you have a different definition of "nowhere near full" than most people...

You only offer more flights if you think there is demand there. So clearly American are more confident they can fill the plane in the quieter months than they were previously.
