Good news indeed. Frequency drops to 1 x daily on 29th October. 789 aircraft currently showing as operating aircraft.

Not sure iíve grasped why they're only doing twice daily for 3-4 months. What is the J seating layout on 789 versus the original double daily A389 plan?

Suspect winter isnít finalised yet. Once the A359s are fixed by Airbus we might see them back.

789 has a larger overall capacity compared to a 787-8 or a non suite 359.

789 - J30 E281 total - 311
788 - J22 E232 total - 254
359 - J36 E247 total - 283

October is a long way off and things can change. Qatar, as we know like to mix up aircraft used. It may also be the case that it will take longer than anticipated to reintroduce the A359ís following the remedial work. A 789 still offers a decent number of premium seats and a hefty number of cattle class seats.

I'm sure Qatar know what they are doing with frequencies and aircraft type, given they'll have the valuable data.

It is in fact a B787-8 on the double daily from Edinburgh.

Agreed like Turkish (recent A330 and B777) they are flexible and often upgrade to meet demand.

The original source (SeanM) is normally very accurate with his information. That said, Qatar and EDI marketing normally fire out press releases. Nothing has been released to date about a double daily service - 14 x P/W.

Booking engine a couple days ago was definitely showing 10pw until start of July before increasing to 14pw. Has since been updated again today to 10pw throughout. Looks like it's still a work in progress.

Just flew into GLA on Emirates this morning (full flight BTW)
Noted on the looped information display that EDI is shown as one of there European routes.
Maybe itís still on as a partner codeshare.

UA

EDI-EWR. Could this go double daily again? Same question being banded around on other forums.

I'm surprised that it's not until 2/7. Other posters have reported very high loads on the existing flights. Unless they're intending by to replace the 787-8 with something larger. Did we not see an occasional 350-1000?

Would an up gauge to a B787 or B764 be more likely than double daily 752?

Have not checked recently but has the IAD flight been upgraded to a B764 like last year?

IAD is showing as a 757. The potential second daily EWR appears on the United Cargo website using the same flight numbers (161/2) as the old EWR-GLA service but isn't currently on sale on united.com. Time will tell if it's a glitch or if they do intend to operate it.

If the latter, it would be a modest increase over UA's S22 capacity with four daily 757s compared two daily 757s and one daily 764 in S22. It would also mean seven daily EDI-US flights at the height of S23 (EWRx2, IAD, ORD, JFK, BOS and ATL (last three all DL 763s)) plus daily to YYZ (788), three-weekly YYC (789) and twice-weekly MCO (A35K). An impressive portfolio and recovery.
