Just strengthens the case against not selling alcohol in airports to certain passengers. Extend that to duty free as its clear this lot were illegally drinking thier own supply as they wouldn't have got that through security.

Yes it's discriminatory, but surely this flight, along with dozens of other examples of such behaviour on holiday resort bound flights show that it's simply a bad combination. No one has the absolute right to alcohol. And no one has the right to act this way on a plane. This association with binge drinking and flying needs to be harshly tackled in the UK. Sadly the profits of airport weatherspoons and World duty free trump all.

All of that aside. The plane should have diverted or had police on arrival. But what are any foreign police going to do with 70 odd pissed up UK youths? Maybe it should have simply returned to EDI and left them all at home and let local police deal with them.

How are you going to identify "certain passengers"? Go you mean certain routes/flights? How do you do this?

The alcohol ban on Scotrail is a political stunt by Sturgeon. State owned and controlled. She has zero clout when it comes to what privately owned airlines can or cannot do.

It's quite common for alcohol to be banned on main line trains before/after major football games in England, so not just a Scottish thing. The original comment was about sales at airports.

I've always thought selling inflammable liquids in glass containers to take on board aircraft was an odd idea,

A ban that is not enforced at all… plenty of drinking on the trains over the rugby weekends. Total political sham.
Yea airlines and airports can do more to stop excessive drinking but let’s not get silly and plan to stop the sale of alcohol altogether.

SunExpress

New Route S23

EDI-Izmir

1 x flight weekly. Start date 29th August 2023.

Strange start date, The summer season in Scotland will be all but over by then. This start date could change?

Westjet S23

Westjet have removed from sale GLA-YYZ. EDI-YYZ remains on sale but at crazy high prices. Been like this for weeks now. Double the price of AC flights. I suspect we may be about to find out what their plans are for EDI. The slots suggest daily to YYZ and a much rumoured daily to Calgary on a 787.

787-9 would be a new visitor to EDI. Exciting tines.

Westjet have also removed DUB-YYZ from sale. I wonder if EDI is about to next? Something is going on.

In addition to Calgary, EDI-YYZ appears to have survived. 3 x weekly in S23.

What’s not clear yet is if the new route to Calgary is summer seasonal or year round. I’d be surprised if it were year round,

Shy of Emirates picking back up their slots, a 787-9 will be the largest scheduled visitor by seats?

Qatar's A350-1000s are longer and have 7 more seats, but they seem to only be an occasional gap filler.

Seasonal to the 8th October according to https://www.aeroroutes.com/eng/221205-wsns23yyc

EDI-YYZ is on sale only at the highest fares as has been the case for weeks. Presumably will be removed from sale soon.
