Freight flights on SF340 freighters I think.

Unless Trump stops acting the prat I can see the USA being isolated long after Europe has started back on the road to normality, so very likely not.

Qatar have ditched the EDI flight for the whole month of May. Last inbound the 23rd April.
Guess there are so many changes that Airlineroute trackers have not colaught up. It reported that it was to be was adjusted to 4 per week for April and May a few weeks back. I am sure that will leave days at EDI with no flights at all in May.
Between Emirates and Qatar they have screwed my plans of coming home up somewhat. Doubt BA will actuyatart long haul in May as scheduled leaving very few options. Hope the handful of Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt flights keep going or I am stuffed.

You could always try making UK landfall in Manchester or London. The world doesn't begin or end in Edinburgh.

Thanks for the sarcasm very helpful. Canít just up sticks and leave work, and in fact itís far safer here than back in the UK. The fact that I can come home for a few months is a bonus and up to this week thatís not been an issue.

Apologies, the sarcasm wasnt intended.
I believe KLM are still operating to EDI during May if routing via Amsterdam is any good when it comes to travelling back

Very true, and itís not that I havenít considered these but there are very limited connections back, overnight hotels are scarce and donít fancy the trains with multiple big bags.
Appreciate the input however so thanks 😊

Many thanks for sharing. Very well aware and we work closely with the British Embassy here. The advice is for tourists and travellers not those living and working here like me and the team who all have resident cards. If you read further it does not advise those living abroad to come home. I have found a route with Qatar to Manchester now which is half the cost of KLM via Amsterdam to Edi which is still viable. BA are starting back to Tokyo in May if all else fails thereís a route to London then an overnight stop and flight up the next day. Thanks again.

Your only problem is that at present there aren't through trains from Manchester airport to Edinburgh
You will have to get a train to Preston from which there is a train every two hours.
The ams alternative depends on that route actually restarting.

lol! I know so a Taxi is sorted and the flights booked. Amazing price!! Even adding a taxi home is cheaper than any alternative and itís flying Qatar so not too shabby.

Just hope they and other airlines return to EDI. I see Turkish are restarting later in May and Qatar are mean to start in June. United have ditched ORD and IAD this year so only Newark and they have ditched Glasgow too. No Philly flight but Delta are scheduled to return at present. Emirates still slotted to restart in August.

Iíd be astonished if any of the US long haul operations will go ahead for 2020. Air Canada Rouge have already given up.
Reality check time. No one will fly until it is safe to fly. What % of people will pay to put their kids on a metal tube for hours at a time wearing a face mask and no food? Any long haul will be served over LHR and connecting flights with limited ME3. Itís April and forward bookings are dead and airlines are bleeding cash in refunds and no forward bookings. Theyíre not looking to open hospitality in this country, restaurants etc until the winter, theyíll be last.

Guys, summerís cancelled, itís not happening. These schedules are placeholders to bring in some, ANY revenue to keep the lights on. Thereís no need to travel cos major economies are in lockdown and are not and will not be open for leisure non essential travel this summer. Holidays this summer will be UK based, expect a good frequency on UK domestic but with social distance in seating as per easyJet.

BAU isnít coming back this year.

It's late April. Airlines are not flying. Airports are closed. Forward bookings have dried up due to uncertaintly. The economy is about to collapse into the biggest recession in living memory and we are at the risk of a global depresssion. Social distancing will be here all summer and maybe beyond if no vaccine is found.
Now, I put my marketing analyst hat on and predict forward bookings for the summer will be on hold and it's almost May. What that means is that this summer is lost, not one penny will be made by any airline in the period. Aircraft will be likely be forced to fly with no meal service and with middle seats blocked. If we're taking social distancing seriously, every second row will have to remain empty. Hence the price point has to rise markedly suppressing what little demand there is.

Even if the lockdown gets relaxed in three weeks, there will be no scent of commercial BAU until next summer peak at the very least and that assumes no second wave of COVID19.
I am booked GLA-EWR in June which I suspect won't operate as United have announced GLA from July, which I suspect won't operate either. They're taking money in forward bookings to stay alive and giving out vouchers instead of refunds, my existing booking is already flagged as no meal service. Even if Trump allows us into the US, why would anyone book now not knowing if anything in New York will even be open? Theatres here are closed will the autumn at a minimum. I am hoping they cancel so I can chase a refund, no one in their right mind is BOOKING to go long haul in the near future and by the time we can book, it will be winter. And the problem European based airlines always have is, if you don't make money in summer, you go out of business.

This is not buffoonery. Wisen up.
