FLIGHTS out of Leeds-Bradford Airport (LBA) have been delayed so far this morning, with one over an hour late.

The airport, which is based in Yeadon, has experienced major issues over the past few weeks, with "snaking queues" through security. 

A woman even missed her flight last week and LBA urged anyone looking for work to consider the job opportunities it has available.

It seems the trouble is continuing this morning, with every departure so far setting off later than scheduled, although it is unclear as to the exact reason for this.

The first flight of the day - the 6.40am Ryanair service to Riga in Latvia - took to the skies just over 40 minutes after it should have, at 7.21am.

The domestic service to London Heathrow - run by Flybe - was less severely delayed - taking off at 7.04am instead of 6.45am.

But the differences between the scheduled takeoff time and the actual time the flights were airborne only stretched further from there.

Ryanair's 7am service to Zadar in Croatia actually set off at 7.38am, while the Jet2 service to Palma scheduled at the same time was almost an hour late, taking off at 7.52am.

Finally, the 7am service to Malaga - run by Jet2 - has only just got airborne, at 8.25am. 

Interestingly, the 7.35am service to Ibiza - run by the same company - set off before that, at 8.08am.

The Jet2 services to Corfu (scheduled for 7.40am) and Faro (scheduled for 8.15am) were yet to take off at 8.25am, but have since left the airport - at 8.27am and 8.41am respectively.
