Might he tell us:

1) Why?

Because BAA control both airports and have
designated GLA as their Scottish long-haul

2) Why just long-haul and charter? What about other sectors of the industry?

EDI seems favoured as BAA's European branch.

3) How come their are flights operating ex-EDI that are both long-haul AND charter in nature e.g.

Transat services to Canada?

Sporodic flights yes, but a weekly summer
charter to Toronto and a few yearly charters
to MCO can hardly 'dent' BAA's long-haul
aspirations for GLA?

Sorry Joe, this is just a reiteration of your argument. You have still not explained *why* BAA would want to apply some sort of classificaton to EDI / GLA. What is their motive for doing so? How do they benefit as a result? Why is ABZ not party to such classifications? Why doesn't it happen south of the border?

It seems to me you are well off course with this one. Services from all four of the major industry sectors operate from both airports - mainstream scheduled, charter, cargo and low-cost. Certainly the mix is different between the two airports, but all are present nontheless
