Presumably, but it was an A35K

Local news is reporting a collision involving A35K and an airbridge; https://www.edinburghlive.co.uk/news...lkway-25120338

Another forum suggests that an engine nacelle has been damaged. The A35K has spent a second night at EDI.

Regarding that ridiculously written article. All I can quote from it is, "cold, scared and hungry" what the f**k.

Do they disembark by steps for immigration hall and then reposition the jetty? Wondered why on boarding it was hit, so maybe manoeuvring the jetty onto the L2 door would have thought the dispatcher heard the crank hitting the engine esp as they then started to board

I have seen other reports that it’s nothing to do with the main airbridge, the plane did not hit anything, it was the Swissport special assurance loading vey that hit the engine cowling.

Report is terrible, misinformed and inflammatory but there does appear to have been a lack of post incident customer care. In saying that anyone would feel a bit unhappy and disgruntled and could easily put a bad spin on the events even if the staff were trying very hard to arrange overnight accommodation, transport and rebookings for a busy flight with a large number of passengers.

What a dreadfully written tabloid article lacking credible facts, knowledge and full of inflammatory and sensationalist views.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is ‘Swissport special assurance loading’ ?

Sounds like an ambilift truck. A truck that loads people using wheelchairs onto the aircraft, just a guess and similar to file photo below.

C17 on its way from Doha now with a replacement engine or engine cowling presumably.

Quite a costly coming together by all accounts. Swissport better have a good insurance policy….

Not many airlines can call on their country's air force to ferry a spare part for them.

Why didn't they just wheel people down the airbridge?

It was after boarding when the jetbridge was being removed Pre departure.

I believe the double jetty was in use.

Those Edinburgh live articles and the like are so embarrassing. Similar to the articles around LHR last night with the ground collision.

Interesting that the double AB was in use. Is this a regular occurrence at EDI? Normally they are only used to speed up the boarding process. Having flown twice with Emirates previously from EDI on a 773 and Qatar in July on a 359, only a single AB was used.

Qatar

Subject to change, which Qatar have been good at recently, more equipment changes. Another 773 due in on Saturday with an A333 the following Saturday. Qatar A333 is quite an outdated product, particularly in J. Bit of a bummer if you expected to be in a Q-Suite on an 359!

It’s not all that common, initially the jetty for the L1 door was too steep back in the Emirates days, however that is going back a while. I have only seen it a handful of times since covid.

Can somebody summarise what services to the US are confirmed for next summer? Thought there was a previous post which had done so but couldn't find it.

United: ORD, IAD, EWR (all daily)
Delta: BOS, JFK (both daily), ATL (five-weekly)
Virgin: MCO (twice-weekly)

​​​​​​Wednesdays should see nine transatlantic flights: the above plus Air Canada and WestJet to Toronto. Pretty impressive and would be even more so if AA restarted (no idea if they will).
