Re: Edinburgh Airport Thread - 2019

CX just suspended Dublin, very little chance they will go to Edinburgh in the near future. Also good to see Turkish have subbed in A330-300 TC-JOF on the Istanbul flight, nice change from the B737.

The reason maybe a B777-200 is because a B767-300 has a lot more premium seats to fill than a B757 so you would need a lot more people paying premium fares to justify a B767-300 or B767-400 but for a B777-200 you could use the high Y version.
