I went to EDI for the first time in about 7 years last week. My god, what a mess. What they need is a new terminal. The current one is far too small and crowded for its requirements. Appreciate August is a busy month for EDI, but even so. Typical British short term outlook of quick fix extensions. ...Jump to post

Adjusting too much to the local situation maybe? Scotland has the worst substance abuse of Europe with lots of degenerates. I’m assuming that this is deliberately provocative? Have you ever been to Scotland? Sandyb123 Yes I’ve been there and enjoyed it. Those are just facts though. Scotland drug de...Jump to post
Found this on the History of PIA forum but apparently Pakistani airports are working to get clearance for US airlines to start their operations. As much as I would love to see an American Airliner touch down in Pakistan, I just cannot see it happening haha. However I do appreciate the effort Pakista...Jump to post
I remember reading somewhere Qatar doing a double daily trial in April, is Edinburgh ready for a double daily service? Surely EK must have ate a bit away from Qatar?
Im also wondering how much of an effect the emirates Edinburgh flight has had on its Glasgow operations?
Why would Norwegian want to fly to Pakistan? Are they planning to operate from LGW? PIA actually fly to Islamabad and Lahore from Oslo so they could also be going after this market. This is spot on, they have expressed interest in the past operating from Oslo and Copenhagen as there is a very high ...Jump to post
The new drop of area is just in front of the terminal building and is replacing the old drop off it has number plate recognition as part of the upgrade.

And I was asked elsewhere to compile a list of destinations I would think could happen, so this is based on numbers and the Edinburgh routes that the management are looking at. Anyway here goes: ·Westjet would have a good shout for a service to Canada or Air Canada increase flights. ·American make ...Jump to post

Yes this is the Emirates flight, and Glasgow has seen a decrease on the Dubai flights. I heard Qatar were also getting high load factors in the 70-80% region.
Sorry this is a little off topic, however I am connecting at this airport from the AA London flight and wanted to ask how fast one can clear customs as I've 2 hours to catch my next flight.

PIA are apparently wanting to shut down its 3 weekly karachi flights due to poor financial and porformance of the route and instead will look into increasing Islamabad (competing with BA?) and start Sialkot as discussed on PIA Forum http://historyofpia.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=27818&si...Jump to post

I concur with BA777FO in regards to the BA security team being one of the best in the world, and indeed they will have had done their homework to start operations back into Pakistan. Lest we forget, indeed it is a very fragile but none the less a money printing market which has been dominated and ex...Jump to post
The return BA260 yesterday went straight up to a cruise altitude of FL430, never seen that before (the inaugural BA260 went to FL400 and then FL430 over the Caspian). I've only ever really seen this on TUI 788s doing short flights from the UK to the Med and the like. According to History of PIA for...Jump to post
BA definitely need to venture into LHE next, its such a premium market of pakistan!Jump to post
I've Read that FR are reducing the stansted route from 4X Daily to 4 weekly flights. Surprised as I thought they may have been making a profit on the routes. Their reason is due to the max grounding however it could be that its just not a profitable route plus the extra competition from Easyjet to S...Jump to post
Great news for all involved! they'll have no problems making money on this route and wouldn't be surprised if they upgauged the route by the start of the summer season. Need to retime the flights so that they can get some North American connections though. Next Pakistani Destination for BA needs to ...Jump to post
Is PIA allowed to operate non stop flights to the US? Nah, the US Government / FAA do not allow it due to security concern, they used do spot checks at Pakistani airports (Mostly Lahore - LHE) alongside the Brits to see how fool proof their avaition security is. However it is not adequate as of yet...Jump to post
Can anyone shine light on the bookings of this service so far? I was under the impression that the GLA traffic would reduce due to the fact that EDI is starting.Jump to post
I know I'm going to get flamed like hell for this, but you really are safer as a minority in Pakistan than in India. People give Pakistan shit for its blasphemy laws and while I don't agree with it, you have to understand that the people of Pakistan are just like people from any other other country...Jump to post
Never understood boarding early either. You ain't getting to your destination any quicker. Take a soft carry on that will go under the seat, board last with the door closing behind you and off you go. Why anybody wants to sit for 25 minutes longer than they have to I have no idea. :checkmark: One o...Jump to post

I hope not! I understand that a flight isn't profitible if the aircraft is completely full but out of the ME3 they had the cheapest fares from Edinburgh and were fairly popular. As stated above, maybe there isn't a market for all ME3. What would be the most popular routes for passengers originating ...Jump to post

So question about this Rumour and the BA news that came out not too long ago, is there that much traffic to Islamabad?
