Think I would consciously avoid the QR 773 if A35 was available.
Odd the EQV is only for a month then back down to some 788’s.

What QR says they'll fly and what they actually fly is two completely different matters. Either way I'm sure their crew scheduling team are delighted with such random aircraft allocations.

United S22

Chicago is being cut. Last departure from EDI - 6th September. It only resumed on 1st July. Only a few days ago, United claimed none of their international routes would be chopped due to the ongoing difficulties in the sector. It would appear this route is being sacrificed. Washington route for now is still available to the end of the season. 764 being used for the remainder of S22.

ORD isn't being axed, it's still on sale for S23. The season has been shortened this year.

Disappointing I thought the route was performing very strongly?

It's *ENORMOUSLY* seasonal, Scotland transatlantic always was, unlike Ireland which has managed to move to a much stronger year round inbound market with good demand up front. Perhaps Nicola needs to set up a Scottish flag carrier to do for Scotland what Aer Lingus has done for Ireland? Air Scotia, your time has come? Air Ecosse perhaps? Ah, got it, Highland Express! That'll learn British Airways.
I think Continental got it right when they had a year round B757 daily on GLA-EWR with DC10 / B764, or 2 x B757 in summer, there's probably enough for a single daily Scotland-US hub core route at the moment, different in summer when Delta vs. United can both do quite well, winter remains a challenge. Genuinely interested in people's thoughts on Ireland vs. Scotland here, the jump from Aer Lingus losing money with B747s to the long haul hub with multiple AA/DL/UA/AC inbounds and a based EI fleet is hugely impressive. All came from dropping the SNN stop-over in 2007, what would be an equivalent for Scotland? Even Independence wouldn't automatically fill the Aer Lingus sized hole? The Heathrow experience is on it's knees at the moment and BA etc are struggling.

Delta were five-weekly in W19 with a 757, which was the first winter they operated continuously (prior years had a break from early January to March IIRC). This winter it will be five-weekly on a 763, so an increase in capacity. I don't see much to complain about in that.

Flying EDI to Boston on Sunday on the 11:55am flight - any insight into Edinburgh transit times just now? Safe to arrive at 10 or is that cutting it fine? Hand baggage only. Thanks!

I notice that there have been several ryanair cancellations in the past few days. I was wondering whether a frame has been moved south for the peak English holidays?

Air Canada/Westjet

The Canadian govt is bringing back “random covid testing” for passengers entering Canada. I wonder how this will impact on EDI’s Toronto route? Anyone found to be positive will face mandatory 10 day quarantine. A real step back which has been slammed by the Canadian travel and tourism sectors. Hopefully, Sturgeon won’t attempt any reciprocal arrangement. Given the opportunity, she would love to introduce such a policy in Scotland. Worrying times again for the airline sector more generally. We need to move on and live with the virus, which will never completely disappear.

All 10 of their first wave departures left this morning, so whatever caused yesterday's problems, it wasn't moving an aircraft "south for the peak English holidays".

But this evening's Cork flight has been cancelled. I'm wondering if delays earlier in the day are the problem, crews OOH.

I think that's a planned schedule adjustment. Looking at their website, there's only one EDI-ORK flight on Thursdays (the morning one) on sale until the 1st September, when the evening one is restored.

My sister in law had a 5 hour delay going to Cork last Wednesday.

I note this morning looks like everything was departing an hour late or so, airline independent.

Ryanair's reliability has taken a noticeable nose dive since the 5x MAX replaced NGs a few weeks ago, but that could just be total coincidence, given the timing of the switch was when things get really strained peak season anyway. All sort of factors likely to cause delays weather/ATC/crew/handling etc.
