This was our first time using the airline. The usual booking in for the flight 24 hours before take-off wasn’t the simplest to comprehend however eventually we sorted it. At London City checking in our luggage using the self-service terminals was relatively painless. The flight from London City was delayed by an hour due to problems with the incoming flight...

We flew from Southampton to Glasgow return, All the staff were helpful, the flight times short, we had a slight delay on the return flight but this was purely down the cold snap that hit the uk, all luggage was ready for us to collect at the carousel which was really handy. we will use Flybe again for our domestic...

I use this airline every month for commuting to Aberdeen for work. They do have there good points such as changing a missed flight if I am delayed by weather offshore but sadly I find they are often very poor at being on time. Numerous times when travelling to Aberdeen I have been late by more than an hour. Hopefully...

I expected Flybe to be just another economy airline, but my expectations proved to be too high. The best feature of this flight was the fact that we'll never fly again with Flybe as a result of the experience. What other airline would get passengers to board in pouring rain without providing umbrellas? Even Ryanair provides umbrellas. There was an...

Wasn't quite sure what to expect as I had never flown with Flybe before . First impressions were good . No compulsion to check in on line and no extra cost if done at the airport . Positive experience with customer service who were easily contacted and answered all my questions satisfactorily . The Bombadier Dash is not a very...

I won't say you get what you pay for because relatively, Flybe aren't cheap. But they fly to regional destinations. However, in a country where taking the train is too unreliable and expensive, and driving anywhere takes the best part of a day, Flybe serves a purpose. And despite their general reputation, I've only had few issues with them (like...

Small Dash-8 plane, flies from our local airport to one of our fav destinations. Got us there and back without any probs, you can either buy food to take on board or buy from the trolley. The main issue we had was the size of the overhead lockers. We checked the cabin bag sizes before leaving but for the Dash-8...
