CSA have chosen Edinburgh over Glasgow for their 2003 flights from Scotland to Prague, despite Glasgow having the largest catchement for leisure passengers to what is the the most popular leisure short break destination in Europe.

I would have thought the catchment area for both EDI and GLA was about the same, unless you are thinking of the charter imbalance between these airports as being reflective of overall leisure demand.

Anyway, perhaps easyJet may be persuaded to offer PRG from GLA instead?

This doesnt surprise me at all. EDI has the best location for the whole of Scotland, and will also attract business passengers to the route, more than GLA would.

Is there enough demand for EDI-PRG and GLA-PRG too?

AA GLA-ORD will probably remain 762 or 763, can't see a 777 going to GLA.
Anyway as Nighthawk says, this is good news for Scottish aviation, I dont understand this GLA Vs EDI war anyway, both airports are decent in their own ways.

Will be interesting to see whether Easyjet start a rival service to PRG from Scotland....and how the competition will pan out.

At the moment, there is a little war going on in STN between CSA and Go, with CSA offering 49 pound flights to the Czech capital (RTN) through Opodo. Hard to refuse, especially given the complimentary service (which I always avail of, if its free...)

Nice to see these carriers open up new opportunities at regional bases up and down the UK...leaves Manchester still crying for LCC service though!

Capt, CSA are doing very nicely on the PRG run despite the EMA "low cost" services....the increase in capacity they introduced in June has been matched by the increase in passenger numbers. In fact, next year sees them at 10 weekly which is an extra weekly flight compared to this summer.

In terms of low cost travel, I don't see the need for it here at MAN to a big extent as the European services that we are attracting at the moment are more catered to business travel e.g. BMA had 22 passengers inbound on their 1st TLS service yesterday which is almost half full (and in fact there are some great deals on offer...something like £64 return to TLS compare to the CDG return price of £69 on BA), SDR using the ERJ145 on the MAN-GOT service due to higher than expected loads.

Had a quick peek at the Amadeus website and couldn't find 777s on GLA-ORD but I can say that the route commences 16th May next year.

Dunno about American using 777 to GLA just that Continental are planning to use the 777 next summer.
