Not from what I've seen before, EK has always been ahead, sometimes only by a few hundred. I suspect a game of leapfrog has started until both carriers carriers confirm plans for next summer

May well be a leased 320 as they generally confine their own to domestic and shorter regional sectors these days. Or its just a typo and should be a 32B (321 with older cabin fit)

Agreed.

In the case of QR here, their slot application at the time of the SoS S23 report appears to be based on B789 ops all season. I don't even think the B789 was ever in the booking engine for S23, never mind operated. The correct seasonal average for S23 based on all B788 ops, as was on sale, is 93.4%

There will also be a discrepancy with EWR, as the slot application was 2x daily from week 6 of the season (8th May), but ops didn't actually commence until the 26th May. Hence, the correct LF will be higher in reality.

Or perhaps the figures are all correct and the above issue has been taken into account already 🤔

SeanM reporting new route from Eurowings.

Stuttgart - 3 x weekly from May 2024.

Good to see the Lufthansa group expanding to/from EDI. 3 routes now from EDI I believe.

Hopefully an infrastructure group or concern with deep pockets. Serious investment required for a substantial terminal expansion or new wing able to accommodate several wide-bodies at the same time.

Sadly its more likely to be a bunch of 'get rich quick' investors keen to extract the maximum return for the least possible investment.

No different to any other UK business these days.

As is Singapore Airlines. I’ve read in other feeds, EDI linked with Singapore. Not sure if this is realistic?

Would be very surprised if it happened in the near future, however, you won’t be waiting too long for Ethiopian.
