Air UK operated from EDI/GLA to LGW at that time with 146s. AFAIK the only 737s were with Air UK Leisure which normally operated the charter routes. EDI-LHR in 1994 would probably have been BA or BMA, although they may have leased or sub-chartered an Air UK a/c for your flight?

Cheers

Spot on! And they called it 'Sterling Service'.

The only scheduled services Air UK ever operated out of LHR were to HUY, NWI and GCI.

In addition to LGW, Air UK also served the London area from EDI with flights to STN.

That was Air UK Leisure in 1988 before the 737-400 became available.
