Potential For These Flights To Happen?

Sun Mar 06, 2005 5:55 pm

I was just wondering what you all thought of the chances of the following flights to start are, and how well you think they'd do:
EDI-MUC
EDI-TXL/SXF
EDI-YYZ
EDI-HEL
GLA-ARN
GLA-ATL
GLA-BOS
NCL-ZRH
NCL-WAW
NCL-FRA
NCL-TLS
NCL-EWR
MAN-HKG
MAN-DME/SVO
MAN-AUH
MAN-BAH

Your thoughts?

If the airlines can see demand for the flights then yes it could happen.

I suppose a few could be answer individually;

NCL-EWR would be quite possible with COntinentals current international expansion. If Bristol and Belfast are feasible then NCL would be an interesting addition.

GLA-BOS - is this not currently a summer flight by AA? ATL could be possible but with DL's current woes probably not for a long time yet.

MAN-BAH - definietely possible with Gulf Air - especially with the huge expansion of Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways, destinations like this would be interesting for connections.

The EDI possibilities just need a loco. Maybe an Easyjet base would lead to these routes starting. I would think that YYZ may be a bit slim though. GLA would be more feasible. EDI-HEL would be a difficult nut to crack also.

Just my few cents...
Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)

Quoting Gkirk (reply 0):
EDI-MUC - Good chance
EDI-TXL/SXF - Good Chance
EDI-YYZ - Already served but frequency could be increased
EDI-HEL - As mentioned above, not a strong market
GLA-ARN - GLA lacks many scandinavian destinations so it might work
GLA-ATL - Good chance as DL apparently expressed an interest
GLA-BOS - We all know AA were going to operate this year
NCL-ZRH - NCL seems to be doing well so yes
NCL-WAW - Tougher market
NCL-FRA - Could be feasible
NCL-TLS - hmmm
NCL-EWR - The way CO are goig I wouldn't rule it out
MAN-HKG - Definately
MAN-DME/SVO - Possibly
MAN-AUH - Yes
MAN-BAH - hmmmm Might work with a low frequency

The day some crazy airline starts to fly EDI-HEL I will eat my pants and go fly that route just so that they have at least 1 passenger  Wink

EDI-MUC- This should happen soon, though not for this summer.
EDI-TXL/SXF- Don't know who would operate this, best chance is probably if Germanwings open a base.
EDI-YYZ- This already exist 2x weekly during the summer, from what I can gather there is demand for more than that during the summer and atleast one flight year round.
EDI-HEL- Apparenly EDI was voted as the no.1 most wanted destination in a magazine over there last year, would also provide good connections to Asia for EDI originating passengers.
GLA-ARN- Unlikely.
GLA-ATL-If this happens, I reckon it would only be seasonal.
GLA-BOS- Quite likely to happen, but maybe EDI shouldn't be ruled out these days?
NCL-ZRH- hmmm
NCL-WAW- hmmm
NCL-FRA- LH regional jets could work.
NCL-TLS- maybe.
NCL-EWR- All depends on whether CO want anymore major UK expansion for next year or not.
MAN-HKG- CX are making a comeback?
MAN-DME/SVO- I think Transaero already do DME.
MAN-AUH- A few times a week initially
MAN-BAH- WOuld that be Gulf Traveller?

No Kirk, GLA-BOS was the planned route but then they decided to change it to BOS-SNN. Don't ask me why.

BOS-SNN was started to allow AA to start ORD-DUB without having to stop in SNN
