Can you advise which dates they didn't operate on please? To the best of my knowledge, only one flight has been cancelled (Sunday 9/1 EDI>BGI) which I have seen reported as due to an ill crew member.

oooft! that didnít last long. In fairness was a bad time to launch (whoís idea was that?) and the wrong aircraft. I saw zero advertising and cruises will be in doldrums for months. Will be interesting to see if they chuck money at it again. Perhaps a EDI-MAN-BGI double drop?

Delta S22

Delta S22

Delta appear to adjusting summer schedules. EDI-JFK now down to 5 x weekly from resumption date for entire season. The newer version cabin on 763 offering premium select is available from 30th October 2022. Boston frequency appears to be unchanged for now. Further changes highly probable I should imagine.

Nice to see VS returning with the route to BGI in winter this year.

Flights start on 12th December 2022 and run until mid-April 2023 on Mondays and Thursdays using the A333.

I am hearing that their EDI-MCO route this summer has been selling pretty well despite all of the restrictions etc which obviously are now being scaled back.

Delta to JFK and BOS
Delta have now announced an increase to all of their transatlantic services, including Edinburgh Airport.
JFK and Boston going daily on B767 each
Timings suggest BOS Inbound aircraft will operate outbound JFK and vice versa

Great news. Letís hope this encourages a sustained recovery for EDI and the travel sector more generally. Will be nice to see United and Delta planes lined up next to each other in the weeks ahead. In relation to restrictions and with Australia finally relaxing some of theirs, it will hopefully provide a boost for Qatar who rely heavily on transfer pax.

Flyr

New route

EDI - OSLO Gardemoen

2 x weekly from April increasing to 3 x weekly from June. 3 carriers now scheduled to operate same route this spring/summer. Direct competition with Norwegian and SAS.

3 carriers including an existing low cost? Interesting to see how that pans out.

Been done before, good loads on Scandi routes.

Copenhagen pre- pandemic for example was served by Easyjet, Ryanair, Sas and Norwegian.

Stockholm had multiple carriers too

Two interesting building warrant applications:

1. To create a lounge for Plaza Premium:
https://citydev-portal.edinburgh.gov...=R71C2KEWH1000

https://www.plazapremiumlounge.com/en-uk

2. Upgrade to the Signature FBO, possibly to include some form of 'private check-in and chauffeur to aircraft steps' service.

I was just wondering where you got this info from? The Delta website shows JFK daily on a 763, but BOS only five-weekly (also a 763).

Daily 763 to BOS this summer seems ambitious with a lot of seats, but guessing they have nothing smaller.

Delta's new config for B767 is 226, their 757-200 was 199

​​​​​​You make it sound like they are putting on an A380.

For comparison, Ryanair max 8 is 197

A sign of things to come from American Airlines in the medium to long term. No real surprise tbh. Hopefully an opportunity for EDI to work towards year round service to PHL, ORD or CLT perhaps.

SAS S22

SAS have dropped EDI - Copenhagen. Too much competition on this route? Oslo remains for now.

I think so, they can't compete with Norwegian, Ryanair and Easyjet. As well as Ryanair to Billund and FR and easy to Hamburg (for South Denmark with great trains) Denmark well served.

CPH is Sas' big connection hub for Scandinavia, with direct flights now to Helsinki, Bergen, Stavanger, Gothenburg from Edinburgh there's not so much connection traffic. Latvia, Lithuthania and Estonia all have direct Edi flights too

SAS will compete with Norwegian and FlyR on Oslo and Norwegian in Stockholm.
