Nigel....the low cost model and in fact much of the airline industry sells cheap tickets early and as the flight gets more full, seats become more expense. The premise of this is that people booking late will often be booking because they have to travel and therefore will have to pay. I actually think flybe flights particularly the essentials are pretty good when booked in advance. Tip is to plan ahead.
