Eastern Airways customer review

(United Kingdom)

Flew from Newcastle to Cardiff on the 6th November 2014. Arrived at the airport in good time to be told that the 0.640 flight to Cardiff was being combined with the 07.40 flight to Birmingham. This was due to that only 7 people were due to fly on the Cardiff flight and it wasn't economically viable to run the flight. Got bounced to the 07.40 flight to Birmingham which eventually arrived in Cardiff just under 2 hours late. Poor show planes are shabby seats are hard and the cost is astronomical. If your final destination is not near Cardiff consider alternative options. My journeys end was in Bath and it took just as long what with getting the bus from the airport to the railway station and then the train journey than by either train all the way or by driving. Will not be using Eastern again.

Birmingham to Newcastle 23rd May. Lightly loaded (just me and another passenger). Greeted by pilot onto plane and given comprehensive brief. Shown to seat by hostess who was very professional served complimentary drinks and snacks when airborne. Seat comfortable flight smooth despite inclement weather on time and bade farewell at the exit by co-pilot. All for about same price as a single train ticket. So very happy to recommend based on my experience.

Started flying regularly from SOU-LBA following FlyBe's withdrawal of the route. Never thought I would say it but bring back Flybe! The timetable appears to just be general guidance and not something they worry about too much fares are extortionate can't take hand baggage on board planes shabby and noisy. Have given up and started to use the train.

Durham Tees Valley to Aberdeen and return leg.££450 return - overpriced. Seats: old uncomfortable and worn out. Free booze and a bag of crisps and a tracker bar - really nutritious! Cabin crew: rude and stressed!

Norwich-Aberdeen and Aberdeen-Norwich route. Absolutely atrocious service late departures cancelled flights at the last moment and worse of all no customer care in fact you are treated with competent. What a breath of fresh air it is when you use BMI better service better inflight foods.

Two words unreliable and expensive. Travelling on the 17.35 Aberdeen to Leeds flights consistently get delays. The Aberdeen Eastern Lounge is just a chatter of moans about the standard of service on all routes. If it wasn't for the fact Eastern are the only carrier out of Leeds to Aberdeen they would lose to competition! If you are wanting an on time flight don't rely on Eastern!

Regular Newcastle to Aberdeen flyer weekly price is sky high and service is flaky at best regular tech issues cancelations etc. When you complain you get the standard reply if you don't like it use another carrier! They know they are the only ones with the route. On the one occasion I missed my flight (Aberdeen traffic) cost me another £205 to get home so total flight cost - £350. Flights to USA are less. ABZ to LDN £80. Need some competition on this route.

I booked Eastern for the Aberdeen to Leeds flights on a regular basis last year. The fleet at the time included Dash 8s as well as the Saab 2000 Jetstream and Embraer types and I still use them now for their Bristol connections. Complimentary service on-board (including wines and spirits on evening flights!) friendly cabin crew and (generally) very punctual timings. You do pay a premium but then anyone who's ever experienced a LowCo at their worst will be glad to part with the extra to avoid that experience. Mainly used by business people I feel - the free copy of the Spectator was an added bonus as were the boarding/landing sweets and hot towels. A throw back to the old days perhaps? A consistently good value and high class full fare product.
