Turkish Airlines are tomorrow planning to operate use a A333 instead of the usual A321neo. Is the first time TK have used a wide body on there EDI route?

I am sure I remember TK sending an A330 a few years ago but I could be wrong.

They did use a 332 in 2019. A 321 went tech the previous day I believe. Must have been sent to collect the delayed and booked pax for that day. Can only guess they are using larger aircraft tomorrow to satisfy huge demand from COP attendees. I did notice that tomorrows Qatar service appears to be completely full.

Tomorrows TK- A333 is completely full in Business. Only flex economy available. Must be close to completely full.

I am guessing if there is a TK 777 coming in on Sunday that it’s a charter as they only operate a 3 x weekly service with flights on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

First time visitor to EDI on Sunday? Vietnam Airlines 787-9. Arriving from Prestwick at 09:50. I assume it is being parked up while COP is taking place.

Av geek heaven at EDI today. Lots of private charters and upgraded equipment on certain scheduled routes. Russian Gov falcon 7x due in. Qatar is using a 789, presumably to meet demand. El Al 739 due later today. Another 1st time visitor to EDI?

Doesn't FR24 use ICAO, rather than IATA, aircraft codes ?

Wouldn’t the spotters info re COP visitors be better posted in the COP26 thread in Spectators’ Balcony?

KLM have significantly reduced capacity from today. E90, E190, E75 and occasional 737 being used for remainder of year.

Are they not increasing frequency though? I'm sure I saw a post on LinkedIn from Edinburgh boasting about all the flight increases over the winter.

You may be right. They may also have reversed the decision to increase frequency due to poor forward bookings. Even adding an additional daily E90 for example, it would still be a decrease in capacity. They have been operating for weeks using 738 and 739 multiple times per day. The ongoing sector bashing by Sturgeon and co won’t help matters.

Qatar

Qatar have changed operating schedule. Still currently showing x4 weekly. Friday and Saturday flight dropped. Now operating S,M,W&TH. Seems a bit strange to drop Friday and Saturday departure which you would think is likely to be the most popular with outbound pax. Is it the case that outbound (UK) pax demand is still at rock bottom due to the ongoing travel restrictions from Scotland?
