Luckily this was a short flight but it turned out to be a very small airplane so the average size hand luggage would not fit in the overhead lockers so you have to put in hold. The check in staff kept a straight face the whole time and weren't very friendly. My travel agent booked this flight but I would...

Until 8 weeks ago I had never flown Flybe but circumstances have required me to fly Exeter-Newcastle return four times in the last couple of months. All flights have been on time or early except one diversion to Bristol due to unexpected fog at Exeter. Cabins are clean and modern, staff have always been friendly and efficient. For me it...

We took a flight from Doncaster to Alicante with Flybe on 27th December early morning. Flight was on time, seats were comfortable and staff very pleasant. No one tried to sell us scratch cards and there wasn’t any of the silly music played as there is with another charter flight that we sometimes travel with. It was a relaxing flight...

Flew from Birmingham to Berlin Tegel. On time both ways and the seating was comfortable helped by the fact the the layout of the plane is 2 seats on each side of the isle. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful. There is a good luggage allowance for relatively low price. All in all a good experience.

Flew to Southend from Dublin with Flybe and the trip was excellent, everything about Flybe is great. Staff are really friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitation flying with them again. Both flights landed early which was an added bonus

Being an islander I travel with FlyBe15-20 times per year . The buyout by the Virgin Stobart consortium announced last week will hopefully change things. I have used the same cabin bag for the past 3 years. Outwood bound from IOM on Fri 11 Jan no problem. Returning from Manchester Sun 13 Jan I was told bag width at 23cms...

Forced to move seats once onboard and despite paying to reserve my seat Customer services then took 4 weeks to acknowledge my complaint and even then just refunded me my seat booking fee Sadly a UK company that won’t be around much longer. The worst budget airline, pooresr customer service combined with relatively high prices

Flew on Flybe from Birmingham to Paris. Much shorter than taking the train and much less expensive. No problems. We would definitely fly this way again.
