That's a very exciting addition.

Do wonder if this would impact a potential Emirates return though? Is there demand for 3 middle east carriers?

….full daily frequency three ME carriers year round… id say that was overkill if was to come to fruition.
But its barely twice daily on one carrier this year, so perhaps jumping the gun

It would certainly be a major coup for EDI to have QR and possibly EY and EK. Is demand high/big enough to satisfy the big three ME carriers? If EY do return, would this be on a 787? I’m not sure if they still use 332/3?

If EY were to return it would most likely be a 789 as they have loads of them. The A330s are gone now I think.

Dublin can support all 3 comfortably, I’m sure EDI can too.

Something else to consider or think about is EY’s codeshare with UA. It could be very positive for EDI should EY return.

Certainly be interesting if Etihad returned to EDI. Seems so out of the blue with everyone suspecting Emirates. What was there reason for pulling out originally and it seemed almost immediately EK started up.

Edelweiss seem to be night stopping an aircraft a few times a week recently. Lufthansa started doing this also last year.

Easyjet to base a 321 Neo also.

Great to see the industry returning almost to pre pandemic levels.

[QUOTE=NotanAVGeek;

[/QUOTE]

I believe easyjet EDI base 2023 is 9 aircraft:
​​​​​​2 A319
3 A320 Neo
4 A320

Edelweiss won't be nightstopping in summer but days ...456. will be Swiss A320-Neo operating
Brussels airlines using a Cityjet CRJ900 on Sat/Sun.

Lufthansa confirmed nightstopping A320-neo as 3rd daily flight. The lunchtime and evening flight will using A321.

Munich returns to daily on LH own metal

Sadly I think the Etihad image is a spoof as none of the flight number match the route listed, they already have an extensive codeshares with KLM to Scottish airports

Is it clear what additional services will be operated by the extra EZY frame? So far EZY have dropped AGP and added Catania. Is it needed for increased frequency on existing routes or are new routes still to be announced?

Selected November 2022 Stats

Pax numbers and approx load factors based on CAA figures.

Qatar - Doha 14362 / 95%
TK - Istanbul 9724 / 93%
DL - JFK 7985 / 96%
UA - EWR 9461 / 94%

More very solid numbers and load factors.

They’ve added Antalya today I think.

AYT is bookable on the website. Looks like twice weekly. So is Santorini on a weekly flight.

Jersey is also returning, I wonder if there will be any more.

I see them all now. When did they drop Gibraltar? It was operating up to Christmas but has entirely disappeared.

Gibraltar was taken off sale overnight I believe. It had been due to resume in March?

Quite surprised by that as this was only link to GIB from Scotland and they’ve also stopped AGP too. Albeit a lot of competition on that route.

I’m not especially. Seem to remember thinking at the time it was marginal /wouldn’t last and a bit ‘niche’. Perhaps will resurface in a Santorini once weekly high summer style…?

Was 100% on sale yesterday between now and March & between July & September (as posted on the GIB thread), but looks to be gone completely now.

Luton was the same when they dropped that, they didn't serve the route between July & August oddly then ended up getting rid of it, and I saw when they released the winter schedule for 2023/24 it didn't appear after September. For me though EasyJet don't really seem to advertise Gibraltar as an alternative gateway to southern Spain, really just for the city itself

ATL to be daily when it restarts, rather than the initially-announced five-weekly
