Re: Edinburgh (EDI) Aviation Thread - 2022

Why did Qatar succeed where Etihad, having been established, failed? Was it just more connections available? Wouldn't part of the Edinburgh issue being Emirates offering a better premium experience out of their own lounge at GLA? Hence Emirates were competing with themselves? I suspect part of the ...

Re: Edinburgh (EDI) Aviation Thread - 2022

Emirates said so themselves and cited competition from not only Qatar and Etihad ( I don't consider Turkish a middle Eastern player) but also their own Glasgow and Newcastle operations. I saw that current comment too and thought it was odd given the fact they pulled EDI before. It would be strange ...

Re: Edinburgh (EDI) Aviation Thread - 2022

Without Scotland playing in the World Cup, I'm not sure there'll be any need to ramp up Doha services ? And IIRC the previous attempt at EDI by Emirates wasn't regarded as being particularly high yielding. Although there were more middle Eastern players at the time, all competing for a slice of the...

Re: American Airlines Network Thread - 2022

Any ideas if EDI-PHL will be returning for S23? The first couple of days of that season are now on sale and EDI-PHL is not available. Plenty of time for it be put on sale though, but I was wondering if it might not return until they have enough 321XLRs (so S24 at the earliest I guess)?

Additionally, EDI and ZHR, are set to resume/finally start on UA per the UA Instagram post. Where does it mention ORD-EDI resuming? This (https://www.instagram.com/p/CVAhzKarBHa/) mentions only IAD-EDI. ORD-EDI is for sale, but it would be good to see some official confirmation that it's returning.

A couple of summers ago they tried Islay from Edinburgh, but it never returned after that one summer. That would suggest the answer to your question is 'not enough'.
