Flying between Aberdeen and Teeside is really convenient... When it happens. That last two times (both on a Monday morning, one in June, one today) I've turned up to the airport to find the flight cancelled. The time before that, come back up, the flight was delayed twice and then, when it finally did go ahead, diverted south to pick...

I took this flight on July 4th. Upon arriving at Eastern's Lounge I noticed that the flight was listed as being 35 minutes late, I asked the staff in the lounge who were unaware, made a call and said it was operational issues. The delays dragged on, went to departures where we were told that our hand luggage would need...

Eastern Airlines have an alliance with Flybe. Check-in was effected on line and the luggage tag and receipt issued very quickly at the machine validating our Boarding Pass at the airport. Waiting Lounge was clean and comfortable. Staff helpful and friendly. Duty free shop small but well stocked. Although the plane was a small one, the snack service was efficient...

No refreshments on board due to an ‘error’ - How can they forget to arrange this - it’s a scheduled flight. . Perhaps they were surprised the flight ran on the day, I have the impression weekend flights on this route are hit and miss!

Booked a trip with Apple vacation to Punta Cana. Swift air was the operating charter flight. Eastern air has taken over. The flight was smooth. Seats comfortable. Staff on the flights going to and coming home were very nice.

Finished the C2C walk and best way after 2 days in Whitby to get to Northern Scotland was to fly. Plane on time, check in quick, flight crew excellent, landed 5 minutes early. Plane was a small prop job but appeared well maintained and clean inside. Flight time was about 55 minutes, had clear weather so good to look at...

It was a delight to fly on a smaller aeroplane (50 seats) after being crammed into the larger jets than dominate air travel. It was a scheduled internal service so the passenger profile was more business than holiday makers. It was all quietly efficient and in fact enjoyable. The the Airport experience was as usual unpleasant, mainly because of long...

Travelled Cardiff to Aberdeen on Eastern. Late departure, ancient Saab 2000 which panelling started coming apart inside the plane on takeoff which made me very nervous. Chaotic scenes at Newcastle which the aircraft stopped to take on 10 passengers. Twice I was asked am I travelling to Aberdeen ( I could have been stowing away!) nobody checked. Lots off staff...
