My point was that just because you can book a flight for a certain date, doesn't mean they will actually go ahead.
My view is that there will be no holiday flights to Spain on the 17th of June.

If this holds true for all of Spain, then they are looking at August for domestic market and some time later for overseas visitors.
I think Greece and Portugal are looking at holidays with social distancing measures but have implied it will likely be domestic or near continent visitors who can access the countries initially by driving.
Many of the Transport Select Committee hearing witnesses on Wednesday suggested 3 to 5 months as optimistic period for restarting operations. The reality is everyone awaits some government guidance (both UK and global) as to how we get the world moving again. Until then, the vacuum is filled with best guesses. Maybe we will get something more concrete in BoJo's roadmap on Sunday - we can but hope...

latest update:

Qatar have reduced June service to 3 weekly slowly increasing in July and August but have down scaled the aircraft to a B787 from the A350-900. On the positive side they are restarting. Scheduled 2x A350-900 from 1st April 2021.

In better news, It looks like American have scheduled EDI in as a 787-8 on the Philadelphia route next year. That's something I certainly didn't see coming.

Must have been updated as now showing a B787 😊
As far as I can see itís 6days per week from late March 2021.
This of course might change again.....

I'd take anything in forward airline schedules with a serious pinch of salt right now - 1 September is a very long way away.

I am trying not to be pessimistic, and have to hope that a level of some normalisation occurs, we are not going to be in this forever more. I have flights booked from EDI to/ from Tokyo booked from September onwards. Work carries on.....

Guys, all these posts about airlines re-starting are going to be worth next to nothing. The situation is fast moving, especially with the announcement that all incomers will have to quarantine for two whole weeks. A lot of this is about airlines getting cashflow into their veins and taking a while to give it back.....

You'll drive yourself nuts trying to keep up with this, the truth is the summer season, all of it, is effectively lost. Make your peace with that fact and hang onto your sanity.

Of course the situation is fluid and everything has to be taken with a pinch of salt. I'm only passing on news and opinion. if none of us did then this site would be pointless!

BA City Flyer Possibly pulling out of EDI as seen on British Airways thread. Guess they are expecting the business passengers to fall away given the circumstances and the prospect of meetings being conducted online

Best case scenario is they are cutting the crew base and the pilots and will run the ops from LCY instead, overnighting a few crews for early departures. Might kill the summer flights to Florence and the holiday flights to Spain that Barrhead travel use.

I wouldn't call that a "best case scenario" if you're an Edinburgh-based BACF pilot or cabin crew member. It's all in the perspective. Thoughts with those who may well be affected....

The crew base is closing but LCY-EDI would be one of the last routes to be dropped IMHO, however am not sure BA will be serving all three London bases anytime soon.

At the moment it looks like EasyJet will be starting from the 1st of June with an extremely reduced schedule. 1st of July is currently when they "plan" to restart normal ops (I have a feeling that won't be happening). I do though think EasyJet will resume certain routes at low frequency from the 1st of June.

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.
Through trains from Manchester airport to Edinburgh restart on Monday.
