Qatar W22

Subject to change of course. Planned 788 replaced with larger 789 on many dates at the busy October and Xmas/NY period. Some very high prices around the Xmas dates, which could suggest demand is very high. Business class sold out on many dates. Have Emirates missed an opportunity to cash in on high demand? The rumoured return to EDI remains just that - a rumour.

Additional changes since initial post. A359 now showing as operating aircraft on certain dates in October and December. More changes to follow it would appear.

Air Canada seems to be going daily for Summer 2023 and keeping the B787-8 rather than the MAX.

Yes, this is correct. Good news. They confirmed this a few weeks ago. They’ve enjoyed a very good season with excellent LF’s. A word of caution however. AC have already adjusted frequency for Manchester - YYZ, which was also due to go daily in S23, Now only 5xW on an A333.

Delta to Atlanta to return next summer:

Finally, Delta will connect Atlanta with Edinburgh beginning on May 25, 2023 — a route that hasn't been flown since 2007. This flight will be operated five days a week during the summer season.

All three of the aforementioned Atlanta routes will be operated by Boeing 767-300 aircraft.

Wow great news. A few of us have been expecting an ATL route for some time.

Delta also increasing flights to Boston/New York, according to Edinburgh Airport:

Delta has also confirmed it will expand its seasonal Edinburgh to Boston route to a daily service, operating from May 8 to October 28, while growing frequency of its New York JFK service

That's a strong portfolio of routes, good options and choice for the consumer. A vote of confidence as many see us teetering in to recession !!

Have you seen the exchange rates? Recession will help that too... soon it'll be $1 = £1. Bargain for the Americans right now!

Excellent news all round. A nice extension to the normal summer season for BOS. Growing frequency of JFK route also. Daily during summer months but drops to 4/5 weekly from Autumn. I assume their target is to operate daily year round? How if at all will their competitors respond? UA already have established routes. IAD has performed incredibly well in S22. Could we see an extension to this service? DEN is a well known target destination for EDI. Big UA hub and currently the fastest growing airport in the US. The very unpredictable AA due to announce S23 plans. Aircraft allowing, it would be disappointing if they didn’t re-start PHL which also performed very strongly pre pandemic.

If you ever want a comparison of good and bad airport management compare Gordon Dewar v Derek Provan. Forty miles apart in distance, a million miles apart in competence.

EDI getting another crack at ATL whilst GLA can't even maintain a summer seasonal to NYC, enough said really.

I sometimes wonder if Glasgow signed some kind of exclusivity deal with Emirates for x years whereby they would not allow another middle East carrier in.

​​​​​there should be some questions asked in Glasgow Chamber of Commerce.

Great point on the exchange rate but the US is also believed to be in recession too ! Ah well, holidays keep us sane
To the point on United offering Denver, there's a line where you start to cannibalise your own existing traffic. Scotland -BOS/JFK/EWR/ORD have strong point to point traffic and EWR offers good connections as does IAD and ORD. I think the ATL addition might be partly to free up capacity on JFK for more point to point and send connections over ATL?

Emirates will be focusing east by the end of the decade like the TATLs did. GLA will be on a par with ABZ, just about surviving with service to LHR, DUB, AMS, some rUK and Med flights. That's it.

No need for a centralised airport anymore. Its EDI, just slightly further east than we ideally might have liked.

Nice to see the big bird Emirates make an appearance today in EDI, albeit a brief one after diverting from GLA

AGS. Three airports. One journey (to hell). No wonder Provan is leaving.

EDI has done to GLA what 1980s GLA did to PIK!
Having said that, there's a case that if EDI is now Scotland's gateway to the world, it probably needs rebuilding for the 2030s and the CAPEX needed might not be forthcoming? They're currently doing the old BAA thing of squeezing a pint into a 1/2 pint glass and as we bounce back, it's going to be shown up as exactly that in the years ahead. That's still a 1977 terminal and layout planned on a fraction of the throughput.
