QR

Ahead of departing EDI this morning en-route to LHR, a member of perm staff who I know well and trust was chatting to me re the proposed terminal expansion etc. Look out for firm planning applications in the near future. The subject of QR’s success was also brought up. The EDI route is currently seeing exceptionally high demand for this time of year and they are having no problem at all filling two A350’s. The onward bookings are also well ahead of projections. I’m led to believe they are actively considering the previously rumoured third daily or upgrading one of the services to a larger capacity aircraft. I assume this would be the 773? One to watch.

Lufthansa City or Lufthansa CityLine? Confusing I know but two different companies. When I checked and tweeted it last week it was CityLine.

Interesting chat. I assume there isn't any news about Emirates potentially restarting in the summer?

I think it’s quite well known that Emirates are short of aircraft so I think their appearance at EDI or a second daily at GLA is unlikely this summer.

Yeah agree they are struggling to recruit enough crews and until they can their expansion will be slower than they want. One thing is for sure though, QRs ongoing success at EDI will not have gone unnoticed by EK. I just wonder how they will try and address it.

From a QR perspective I agree that a 777 on one of the rotations is a more likely first step rather than a third daily rotation (if they have a 777 they could allocate to the route - Id hope it wouldnt be one of the ex Virgin Australia ones that MAN saw as the onboard product is less impressive than the standard QR ones and certainly worse than the A350).

Or perhaps deploy a B789 or 351 on one of the 2 daily rotations which both have larger capacity than the A350-9?
(ahead of adding a third flight per day)

I believe a brand new UA A321Neo has stopped in at EDI this morning on its way from Hamburg to the US. These will probably be a common sight at EDI in the coming years.

Aircraft is N14507

Isn't the US market meant to be suppled from aircraft assembled in Mobile, AL? Or I guess they don't have the capacity required given the order volume. NWA used to send A320/A319s TLS-PIK-YYR- on delivery, never quite worked out why they needed to stop in Scotland at all given United's A320s never fuel stopped before Canada.

Apparently there will be one calling at EDI every month on its way from Germany to the US.

FR adding WMI I think at 2x per week.

POZ also going from 3x to 4x per week.

AIR that the absence of flights to WMI was a result of a dispute between FR and Warsaw? Who blinked?

3 EDI updates I found early this morning and posted to X, Aer Lingus are also upping DUB flights this summer with the A320 added into the schedule for a morning flight every day.

Re. the Aer Lingus upscale. I think that this used to be the case before Covid. It's the flight which will carry many of the PAX transferring to longhaul at DUB.

I did also see a comment last year when it operated saying the ATR would struggle with baggage on that flight, with particular mention made of golf clubs.
