It would be interesting to know why...

I suppose if you have to fly long haul it's your only daily service, with BA not flying to LHR every day.

I remain mystified about the restart of the Zurich flight. I assumed that this almost entirely carried inbound tourists, but with the hotels, holiday lets etc unavailable, where are they going?

Zurich does have some good Star Alliance connects both long and short haul. cologne good for intra Europe. We have people that need to get to locations and be on the ground so these returning flights are good.

Disappointing to see EK now moved restart back to 1st Sept. GLA restart delayed and reduced. Qatar from the start of July will remain the best east bound international connection hub for those who need to fly and be somewhere.

Donít just look insular to domestic travel or tourism got to look broader IMO.
far too much negativity around at present.....

Four of the seven BE Q400s that have been stored at EDI since early March have been re-registered to their leasing company NAC Aviation. Two repositioned to Weeze yesterday and I expect the other two will follow in due course.

It’s not about “too much negativity” at all, nor is it “faith” or “belief”, this isn’t religion. It’s about truncated consumer demand on a global scale leading to a massive shock to business. The Ski School may well need boots on the ground but are they flying up front paying full whack? Why would anyone pay for a high yielding premium product until we get back to normal-normal, not the new normal. No lounges, facemasks, awkward bathroom queues and onboard service restricted. I mean you’re not gonna part with your own money for that and business travel is going to be on a necessity only basis until the new financial year. Consider Emirates, one of the strongest carriers in play :

EK to Decommission 40% of Airbus A380, Axe 1/3 of Pilots & Cabin Crew

The best Scotland can see on long haul is core routes protected. Park any fantasies about twice daily EDI or thrice daily GLA for a year or so at least. A load of the schedules you are seeing are placeholders as the airlines literally have little idea about what demand will be. BA don’t know whether the A380 and B744 fleet will even go back into service! ( 42 aircraft all in for starters!)

I thought the SOU flights were showing as sold out until July. Maybe I'm wrong though. All good news is welcomed though.

Edit: I have indeed just seen they are back on sale.

Both cancelled today. I wonder how long it will take for demand to rise to economic levels?

I checked the fares yesterday and they were in region of £200.

I believe Poland has closed the border again is the reason for the Warsaw cancellation not the downturn in demand From Gov.uk
​​​Flights between Poland and the UK are suspended until at least 30 June. From 17 June flights permitted between Poland and most members of the European Economic Area and Switzerland, apart from the United Kingdom, Sweden and Portugal. Other international flights remain suspended until 30 June

I know much could happen before next summer but Jet2 appear to have made several increases. But what puzzles me is they have the normal 6 based every day except tuesday which has 5 (and I know 1 has a maintenance check hence why there is 5) and Sunday which currently shows 8 based morning departures. Unless major expansion to come or flights to be moved around that seems weird.

Edit: Also Lanzarote is showing 3x weekly on the outbound and 5x weekly on the inbound (with Tuesday and Friday being the new flight days) but both those days are not bookable at the moment. Is this possibly a glitch or more expansion?

There is much more to be played out in the aviation world before we can start looking at specifics on S21

Loganair CEO

Interesting webcast:
https://www.anna.aero/2020/06/15/30-...key-questions/

Loganair CEO gives some interesting insight to why they pulled the Manchester and Cardiff Services but I am not convinced that his reasoning is sound with respect to the difference between EDI-MAN and GLA-MAN. (To restart).
i wonder which airport he is referring too that are commercially out of touch??
EDI not directly mentioned as good or bad....
anyone got some further insight?
