How Far Away Is AA From EDI?

Fri Sep 30, 2005 5:18 am

Hiya,

I have read posts about AA starting flights to NCL, and they already fly into GLA.

CO fly to GLA and EDI.

How long do you think it'll be before AA start flights to EDI, if they ever do?

Thanks
Mike

Which other U.S airlines fly to Scotland?

Do they fly to both GLA & EDI?

I don't think AA will fly into EDI anytime soon. CO has the U.S. market to and from there filled well.

AA's 757 expansion in Europe is apparently going to be focused more at cities like DUS, FRA, LYO, AMS, etc., according to earlier posts on these boards.

AA has no plans for EDI flights afaik.
AA will fly NCL-JFK, there GLA flights are summer only flights to ORD.

AA is likely to announce that Lundy Island, that big metropolis, will be next.

hmm, AA and CO are the only ones I think. I am not positive. Although UPS fly into EDI.

Quoting Commavia (Reply 2):

Ahh ok, I suppose CO have the NYC market covered from EDI anyway.

I heard rumours that CO were planning IAD-EDI. I doubt that will ever happen, but there could be small chance.

Thanks

A CO Transatlantic service from IAD?

That's about as likely as WN buying the 787 and starting DFW-SYD. Basically put, there isn't a chance in hell that CO would ever do anything at IAD beyond flights to EWR, IAH, and CLE.

GLA

CO - EWR
AA - ORD (seasonal)
US - PHL (seasonal)

EDI

CO - EWR

AA will talk with BAA GLA at the next route conference in Copenhagen about new flights to BOS or JFK. Haven't seen anything about EDI apart from some people saying AA people were at EDI not so long ago, not that it means anything though. Wouldn't be surprised to see BOS-Scotland soon, although it seems GLA is most likely to start with.

:S Ok, you will have meant UA, and even then I don't think they are even considering an IAD-EDI...

AA reps are meant to have visited EDI, that's as far as any AA interest goes. BOS or ORD would be nice, BOS is more likely, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

hehe, I wondered who'd make a comment like that  Smile

Thanks to everyone else for the replies. And I was thinking about CO, but maybe it wasn't IAD. Maybe IAH or somewhere else.

Thanks

They are waiting for their winglet kits to be installed on the (15) 752s before starting up any new trans-atlantics. EDI is a good choice. Would also like to see them at DUS and BCN.

Regards.

Yer, EDI gets the B757W sometimes and I think Mainland EU is where CO are expanding most.

Thanks
