Quoting BY738 (Reply 6): Will be great during the summer- just not sure a daily duing Winter is necessary.
Winter schedule so far already shows the flight operating 5x weekly (daily except Tuesday and Saturdays from ATL). I did read somewhere that DL is receiving some subsidies from the EDI side - not sure whether those subsidies include a minimum number of weekly flights...I'm sure that the schedule would probably be even further reduced to 4X or even 3X weekly during the deep winter season (late Jan/early Feb) if advance bookings look poor for that period...

The Scotland-USA market does seem to be highly seasonal, with a number of direct services operating summer only, such as AA's GLA-ORD and US Airways' GLA-PHL. However GLA/EDI to EWR with CO seems to do well through the winter months, albeit on reduced frequency.
I think DL might be reducing EDI-ATL to 4 x weekly during the winter months, but I think that would still be an eminently useable frequency. Hopefully US to PHL will go year-round on a 4 or 5 x weekly basis from GLA too.

Think I read elsewhere it was down to 4 weekly during the winter.
As for US GLA-PHL, now that they've started using 757s, perahps we could see that go year round also.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Delta are recieving funding from the Scottish Executive for the route. In order to recieve funding they have to operate year round, and at least 3 flights per week. During the winter they are reducing frequency to 4x weekly, as stated.
