Flew to Edinburgh the other day with Ryanair. I have to admit that the addition of online check-in is a great boon to us day trippers. Takes all the stress out of getting to the airport on time. Now all we have to do is get to the gate on time and not be there to "check-in two hours before hand" and those seemingly endless lines. Those 6:30 flights don't seem so early now.
It was cold in Edinburgh. Much colder than it's been here in a few years. I was struck by the fact that a lot of the sidewalks were covered in frost throughout the day. There doesn't seem to be any imperative on property owners to clear the sidewalks in front of their buildings.
