they quite often reduce schedules and keep aircraft grounded over festive period, maybe just that?

Emirates reporting that GLA and NCL top its UK list for forward bookings in 2024 with GLA up 66% and NCL up 56%........might we see additional frequencies?

I would imagine they are both still catching up on the others get those increases - NCL certainly re-started later than elsewhere and GLA have moved up to the 380.

NCL's DXB figures for OCT 23 were about 1,200 up on OCT 19 and 5,000 on OCT 22.

Positive news though

EDI slots would be the half-way house to gain capacity for both zones

I'm sure you're right but there were posts on here a few months ago, saying that Emirates had applied for extra slots at NCL for 2024.

I'm not so sure. Wouldn't be surprised to see a single daily 777 at EDI along with the daily A380 at GLA. I'd have thought if EK were committed to reinstating the second daily GLA flight they'd have done so by now. Every other UK station has now been at pre-Covid capacity for some time.

I would be surprised if you saw any meaningful growth from EK at any of GLA, NCL or EDI before 2025. A380 fleet constraints with wing spar inspections means that the fleet is nowhere near back to full capacity and the 777s are heavily tasked as a result. As and when you see some new airframes joining the fleet and the A380s coming back in meaningful numbers, you're likely to have a splurge of growth at that time - but it's over a year away, from what I'm told.

I see the NE airports are stepping up to the plate tonight in order to help the many aircraft looking for somewhere to land in these awful conditions 🤔

Pity The airport has a minimalistic view on diversions! Could pay a few wages down the line!

KLM, Ryanair, Jet2.... no problem.
BA - cancelled.

Why is NCL the first airport on the list that BA cancels at the first hint of a problem?
I can't believe LHR has worse conditions that here.

This isn't a NCL issue but is common to all the big network providers and especially those in slotted constrained airports where it is more difficult to slot in diverted/re-arranged flights than the quieter regional airports (but as this is the NCL thread RYR have cancelled DUB last night and this morning and KLM AMS later),

The theory is to try and maintain the network by having aircraft/crew in the right place at the right time, so you cancel routes where there are multiple flights a day (so pax can be rebooked) or alternative means of transport (so road/rail), which means that short, especially domestic flights are top of the list.

This is less of an option for Jet2/RYR/EZY where at this time of year especially they may be operating just a few flights a week between regional airports where there are fewer alternatives.

Looking at FR24, RYR had a DUB flight end up in BOD and three EDI flts in CGN, and Jet2 had a BFS flt in CDG.
