That would be a good vantage point. Hopefully it wouldn't be abused like the Thistle Hotel at Heathrow. It has a nice spectators terrace but they asked that refreshments be bought from the hotel, which seems reasonable. Predictably some took matters into their own hands and brought their own food and drinks to the terrace. The result - terrace closed to all except hotel patrons.

As a long time user of Edinburgh Airport I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand we all want more flights and I want to see my local airport prosper. On the other hand the place is shambolic enough at the moment without even more flights and passengers. Many of the problems at EDI are due to issues for which the airport itself isn't responsible, particularly the shockingly awful performance of some handling companies, but it is unquestionably operating beyond its capacity. Basic stuff like the shortage of seating airside, the woeful passport control area and occasional issues of gate availability need to be sorted sooner rather than later. I've had enough bad experiences at EDI to consider using GLA if there is a suitable alternative flight despite it taking me twice as long to get there from my home.

I have just noticed that HU have actually reduced their PEK-EDI/DUB-PEK flights to only twice a week now. Full schedule as follow:

HU749 Tue PEK-EDI-DUB
HU750 Tue DUB-PEK
HU751 Sun PEK-DUB-EDI
HU752 Sun EDI-PEK

All flights now operated by B787. But is this a sign of poor performance of this triangular route? You can get a very cheap flight at less than GBP400 return from EDI to PEK even if you book a last minute flight to travel in next few weeks.
