We were delayed on the tramac for 2 hours because of industrial action by French air traffic controllers. The captain invited any passengers who wanted, to visit the cockpit. I wasn't quite first in the queue! I sat in his seat, and he answered all my questions about the controls. It was most interesting. Because of the delay, once we...

Have flown Flybe a number of times and whilst it’s not always the most,punctual, for,the price it’s good value. Planes always seem clean and staff helpful. For trundling around Europe or the UK, they make a good value option for travel

Really upset and disappointed with the help and customer service from Flybe. I booked a holiday for the 27th July for a week, I had an email from my PayPal as confirmation of payment. I then received an email last night to tell me I'm flying on the 20th! I've been on the phone and spoken to several people today...

Whenever I fly to France I always try to go from Southampton Airport. It is always a good experience. It may not have all that Heathrow and Gatwick have but a way more relaxing environment. Getting there by train is so easy. I always travel on Flybe. I find the staff excellent and on my last trip a bird decided...

It was quite chaotic at the airports. Both ways. London to Edinburgh and back. They are obviously understaffing that leaves the passengers trying to figure out what to do. Next time we will know. A couple of passengers missed their connection because they were shuffled from one counter to another. So be prepared. So with plenty of time in hand....
