It does explain why they recently realigned the CE fares to use I class (not J) on domestic.

Certainly.

On LHR-EDI there will be plenty of corporate traffic. And in any event, some of us do appreciate not being crammed in.

I'm almost thinking that with CE on domestic and for 80 TPs (if they follow regular CE TP earning), my "quickest" way to LHR for the start of a long-haul could be LCY-GLA-LHR or something...beats two hours sitting in London traffic or paying through the nose to stand by the loo on the HEX!
I suspect that it would follow Spanish (mainland) domestic rules, i.e., only 20 points in CD ("Club Domestic"), in line with the current Business UK offering.
