It certainly wasnít intended to be and apologies if it appeared like that. It is true that there have been suggestions that B6 were interested in serving GLA is it not? That is why Iím certain itís a Canadian route or AA. Having said that Iím not going to lie Iíd love to see B6 at EDI.

AA recently dropped DFW-DUB which was served by a 787. They also dropped PHL-Dubrovnik. The bigger picture should become clearer when they announce S23 routes.

Not to drift away from EDI, but DUB DFW is a seasonal route that operated this year and is on sale for S23. So there was no issue there with this route and delayed 787. A lot of routes would have finished for the winter.

Personally I’d be surprised to see B6 at GLA or EDI next year. The current exchange rates mean it’s very much an inbound market in Scotland which would favour EDI but I can’t help but feel that with current and announced routes EDI is getting saturated. For the same reasons I think VS will struggle on MCO next year but I’d be happy to be proved wrong on either or both counts.

Qatar - Xmas 22

QR in process of updating operating aircraft schedules. Although subject to further change, the planned 787 for a number of dates in December has been replaced with a larger capacity 359 and a couple of 351’s in the last week before Xmas. I assume demand must be high.

An upbeat message from the EDI CEO. He makes reference to a spectacular S22 season, primarily with international routes. The LF’s back this up. Also drops hints about new carriers coming in and the airports objective to grow its international routes portfolio.

Ok I'll bite. Is that Icelandair in addition to, or taking from, GLA?
WestJet YYC isn't that unlikely as they have a load of B789s and they're all now having to be filled out of Calgary as they've been pulled from YYZ.

Icelandair carried 7242 from Glasgow in peak summer (July) this year with a daily service on a 752. EZY from EDI carried 2600 on a 4 x weekly A319/20. EZY in S23 is reducing frequency to 2 x weekly. Would these totals justify Icelandair serving both GLA and EDI?

Westjet appear to be updating schedules for EDI-YYZ. New dates being loaded today. Not complete by the look of things. 4th weekly flight bookable in July.

It's the B789s that are exclusively Calgary based, the B737 transatlantic program may still be in flux? TBC?

AC - YYZ increased seats. Already confirmed increase to daily.
TK - IST increased seats. Larger aircraft on certain days or double or certain days.
VS - MCO decrease on route.

Barring peak summer, that is a lot of TA capacity to fill right there if that all comes Ö TK seems to do its job well to UK. Not a carrier I would ordinarily rush to use myself however and would be interesting if NCL also got a service.
Wonder how significant the VS further reductions is? The last few peak month loads were reasonable.
Think iíd be surprised to see FI to KEF in 23, didn't they just announce their summer expansion/new routes eg PRG ?
Its not like EK to faff about, QR maybe want to re-establish their domain with some double daily.

The United increase in seats is the B764 returning on IAD. WestJet have got slots for 7x weekly YYC on B789/7x weekly YYZ on B38M. Icelandair is 7x weekly slots on B752. Turkish have 10x weekly slots on A321N.

Interestingly despite the later start, Virgin to Orlando is showing an increase in seats on the flights that will operate, appears to be an A35K in the leisure config.

Are there any payload restrictions on the B38M EDI-YYZ? That's quite a stretch for it, particularly westbound.
