Having a taxi rank with taxis on it would be a great help.

Could be worse - Glasgow for example - and Manchester isn't a great spot either

Saudi 333 at gate 6 today. First time visitor to EDI? Security personnel at gate area and on apron. VIP or Saudi royalty?

It was a 777. I think so. Don't know, but was a Saudi government machine. Another one due tomorrow.

cool. It was hard to see exactly what it was. I was out of gate 6. The security were keeping a close eye on us boarding an EZY 320!

I meant to type gate 4. Trial runs for cop26?

Virgin

Virgin have changed equipment for MCO route. Now operating on a 333. 332 is being phased out. A nice increase in capacity. Forward bookings look very positive in economy, PE and business according to seat plans. I wonder if they may increase frequency should this continue? On a less positive note, bookings for Barbados, due to start in December look very poor. I fear this could be dropped before the route starts.

December (until later in the month) is considered low-ish season in places like BGI, ANU and UVF. I believe there are also some Covid-related restrictions (eg, evening curfew) in place in BGI at the moment which may put people off.

Delta S22

EDI-JFK route resumption pushed back to 1st May 2022. Regarding testing, Sturgeon, today, grudgingly confirmed alignment with UK Gov for “practical reasons” from Sunday 1st Nov. 1 week later than England. Her continual briefing against the travel sectors and deliberate delaying re aligning clearly continues to affect confidence with the airlines. As normal, she also added a tartan twist to the testing arrangements. Passengers must select provider from a select list of Scottish Gov approved suppliers. All are more expensive than providers in England. You can obtain LF Test in England for as little as £14. In Scotland, it will be “between” £20 and £30. Mirroring PCR testing, this is another deliberate ploy to make travelling from Scotland less affordable.

Does anyone know anything about SunExpress planning to add flights to AYT from EDI for S22. Just noticed that Expertflyer shows they plan to operate 2 x Weekly from 2nd April, increasing to 3 x Weekly from 26th May.

BAladdy A "UK Airline Schedule Analyst" on social media a couple of weeks ago referred to them adding two new UK destinations, and has today stated they are EDI and BHX. The TK flights to AYT on Thursdays and Saturdays are showing in your excerpt above as operating 15 minutes later than the XQ flights, but amazingly arriving 30 minutes earlier. Given the former airline part-own the latter, I can't imagine they would run both flights on those days.
