Weekly EDI-ALC looks laughable in amongst that lot. :rolleyes:

Have to agree, that is just a wee nip at GSM, totally pointless by EZY, Really can't see EZY do much more at EDI, as GLA is to become a new hub, and NCL takes care of the east coast. Have to laugh at the line on the EZY blurb:
"Today’s announcement also holds "exciting" news for Scotland" the excitement of 1 weekly flight, taking on GSM's daily flight....not really Foreman V Ali.......

Superb news for Bristol with Toulouse, La Rochelle, Krakow, Marseille and Rijeka all added! Really interesting destinations.

Their expansion from Scotland so far has been all talk and very little to get excited over. SXF has been the only worthwhile addition, the rest is just disappointing. Still, with more new routes expected from EDI and GLA in the months to come, we'll just have to see what happens...

Ooh yes, Easyjet really are adding interesting destinations. Seems to me they are trying to tap into Ryanair's market - e.g La rochelle and Krakow.

I though easyJet were going to announce something 'big' at Edinburgh soon as well. I hardly call a weekly ALC flight big

They've finally come to an agreement for expansion from EDI and GLA, although it's about 5 years too late. However, yes we were expecting something big from EZY in Scotland, and all we've got of any worth is SXF from GLA. It wouldn't be so disappointing if they hadn't talked it up so much to the point where we were expecting something more than daily/weekly ALC, AGP, PMI...
