My sister has not got internet access at mo and has asked me if I can look up a cheap return flight for her and DS (almost 4) from either Leeds Bradford or Manchester to London Gatwick from 02/07 - 05/07. However my computer keeps crashing and I have found nothing.

Can anyone assist me with my mission. She thinks she saw one advertised for about £30 each a few weeks ago but I have not been succesful at all. Can anyone make my sis a very happy laydee??

Mant Thanks xx

just had a quick look on opodo for you and found flights from manchester for 68.74 with ba. You are probably best finding out who flies the route and going directly to their website. I looked at easyjet but they don't, sorry not much help but dont have much time. If you dont have any luck let me know and ill have a look later.

Thanks so much both of you. Hope Flightchecker doesn't crash on me lol.

Lucy was that for both sis and her DS or is this wishful thinking?!

sorry just adult forgot about the child

Ive just done it 4 your sister and child and it works out just under 135, ouch might be cheaper to book a train if that fits into plans. I dont live in Uk anymore so I cant exactly remember the deal but it was something like ape or super apex

Sorry to hound you, I love a challenge you might want to look at They had some cheaper flights, I got it down to 122 but could be cheaper if you dont mind funny times.

after a quick scan I think jet2 is the cheapest.

yes according to skyscanner:
manchester to Gatwick with jet2
dept 6.55 arr 7.55 £ 28.00 02/07/05
Gatwick to manchester with jet2
dept 20.00 arr 21.00 £28 05/07/5
total £ 56 pp

leed bradford only fly to heathrow with BMI
