I believe they are. These routes also have fairly heavy advertising musclke behind them (BD adverts in the Scottish press are generally for long haul or Leeds)

Do you have figures to prove that?

EDI-LBA in particular carries a fair amount of business pax working in the financial sector. The merger of Halifax and Bank of Scotland must have given the route quite a boost.

For a time BD used the F100 on selected flights from LBA-EDI/GLA, I believe?

I can confirm the succces of these routes. My ex flew regularly in C class from LBA-EDI and he reported the flight was almost always full, in both C and Y class.

The fact that BD have kept C class on this route while scrapping C class on almost every other route is confirmation of the high yields this short route fetches in.

I flew the LBA-EDI route a couple of months ago, and on a Wednesday morning the flight was full. The service levels on this service are exemplary, including hot breakfast with tea or coffee. Later flights in the day have free alchohol as well. Y passengers get a Panini, C passengers get a full English.

My trip report is here if you're interested!

From Leeds to Glasgow, the train isnt big competition. With the exception of one or two trains a day, a change of train is usually required at either York, Edinburgh, Manchester or Preston

EDI-LBA is one of bmi Regionals best performing route , if not the best.
The flight is more often than not full and often operates in an all "C" cabin.
Lots of passengers paying a lot of money,,,the route is here to stay!

I can well believe it is their best route. Talk about a cash cow. My ex used to regularly pay (rather BT, his employers did) £350+ for a day return flight LBA-EDI!!

I can guarantee that route wont be seeing £19 tiny fares!
