I wouldn't worry about flying the Q400 there is very little to seperate them from a jet from a passengers perspective
noisier, slower, narrower seats, less cabin baggage space (watch out for the 40 charge at the gate), no hot food, flies lower so more in the bumpy weather.

Agreed, SOU is woefully under based with E jets compared to other large Flybe bases like BHX and MAN but there is little competition (look out for the Veuling A319 and Air France/Regional E175`s this summer) and the BAA have yet to invest in SOU and provide enough parking stands for them!!
