A quick flight as our United flight from Newark was cheaper to land here than a direct flight to Glasgow. To be honest I slept most of the flight but the noise of the propellers was awful.

I find Flybe to be reliable, their planes clean, and their staff helpful and friendly. They also tend to be on time. The food and seats are as one would expect for a budget airline. But at least they fly from regional airports. The only negative for me is that you can sometimes end up on propeller driven Dash-8 plane....

Had four flights with the Flybe team last week. I couldn't be more complimentary of the cabin crew who looked after me. Polite, efficient and accommodating. Shame I couldn't say the say for a BA flight I took this weekend. Well done all and I will definitely fly again!

I flew with Flybe as they offered the most convenient times and the airport at Belfast was a lot closer especially for a short trip, lasting four days to visit family. I got a good price for my flight at the time of booking which made it all the better, as Flybe can be expensive sometimes on this route. The...

Does what it says on the tin. Economy flight in propeller aircraft. Seats are in twos, better than EasyJet's three together, or two and a stranger LOL. A bit cramped but OK for a short flight. Cabin staff and ground staff excellent. Bit strange that my wife, who had requested special assistance, and I were seated on the back row...

Saturday morning flight. Left early, arrived early. Very long walk from the gate at Edinburgh which undid all the good work of arriving early. Seats fine because I had 2 to myself. It would be cosy (but adequate for a 1 hour trip) if there was somebody next to me. Food looked ok but I didn't buy - why pay...

3+ hour delay, downgraded to 2 hours 50 minutes, so no compensation for the poor service. Not only that, no apology, no offer of a voucher to carry on using them, nothing. Rubbish, will never use Flybe again.

2 flights to Southampton with a change over at Manchester. Same on return. Crew were well presented and professional on all journeys. The flight getting out of Aberdeen was rather bumpy and upon coming in to land at Manchester things were a little "hairy" but safe up and down. Flights were smoother on return leg due to calmer weather. Pilot...

"Does what it says on the tin" - a good no frills airline that is efficient at what it does. We flew on an Embraer 195. As a couple we enjoyed the two seats on either side of the aisle configuration (rather than the three seats in row 'sitting with a stranger' arrangement on most planes). Good prices can be...
