Our Asia Pacific edition ran a news piece when services were started to DUB and EDI.
You can see the difference between the two types of J accommodation.
The aircraft type was later changed to a B787. And flight frequency is cut to just two flights a week during the winter period.in reply to: Hainan Airlines international business class2 Oct 2018
Ironically Monarch also ceased operations exactly one year ago.in reply to: Primera Air disruption1 Oct 2018
I may be wrong … but I believe it’s the first time this airline has ever appeared in the pages of the magazine or within this Forum.
Very much a niche carrier here in Europe.28 Sep 2018
News today that BA has extended the Air Belgium lease until October 31.

Fascinating report from industry publication ATW today.
Rolls-Royce is saying that it’s all down to pollution (around big cities) which affects this particular engine type.
In mainland China it could be even worse as pollution may affect airports too.in reply to: Air New Zealand Dreamliner 789 Timetable withdrawls27 Sep 2018
Even if QR were not to sell all accommodation (owing to weight limitations for this ULH flight) there are still plenty of seats to fill.in reply to: World's longest flights25 Sep 2018
Thanks for the correction, canucklad.
The attraction South of Berwick is the view out to Holy Island. Easily seen on a clear day.24 Sep 2018
ride between EDI and NCL is a very pleasant
Absolutely. It’s the highlight of LNER’s East Coast route to Scotland. Regularly praised by passengers when the train hugs the cliffs along that Northumberland stretch.24 Sep 2018
Though GLA is much closer (although I agree on the other side of the city). Newcastle would be over 100 miles South and the A1 can be a tricky drive.24 Sep 2018
Emirates confirms that EDI will start as a daily operation but will be reduced to a five flights a week service from October 28.
It will revert to daily from June 1 next year.
canucklad – Emirates, rather like Ryanair, has the skill to make a success of a new route. Of course we’ll have to see what happens but surely there’s a large enough market in both Edinburgh and the Eastern side of Scotland ?
Emirates will be marketing the route using Dubai as a gateway. And the marketing effort will be made in overseas markets too.
I haven’t used EDI for over 10 years. It was busy enough at that time !24 Sep 2018
SAA is “technically bankrupt.” It will not present any financial results for 2017/18.

We shall have to see what happens next. Air Belgium wants to serve mainland China.
Cynics in Belgium are saying that this airline is making more money from leasing its A340s to other carriers, namely Air France and, more recently, British Airways.in reply to: Air Belgium ceasing scheduled services.22 Sep 2018

Today we learn that Edinburgh is losing several more routes … but with Norwegian.
The Scotsman reports the low-cost carrier will axe all three of its transatlantic services plus a few shorter routes to mainland Europe.
The closure of two of these transatlantic routes had already been forecast. But Edinburgh had been hoping the third route would be retained.22 Sep 2018
