“Best Budget Airline 100%”
Review of Flybe


Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

My family and I switched to Flybe in a bid to avoid Ryanair and it's the best decision we ever made. We used to fly to London Stansted but we switch over to London Southend which is even a much nicer airport. We just couldn't put up with the hassle of an airline plus the stress of travelling with a baby but with Flybe, it's the easiest and most enjoyable trip you'll ever have.

We've flown Flybe several times and their services is ACE, for real. From the booking to the actual flying and the staff, everything is excellent. We love them so much so that they're our first choice now when it comes to flying, unless they don't go to our destination. We even stopped buying Packaged Holiday Deals because Travel Agents don't seem to want to offer Flybe unless you ask then they bump the price but when you go online, you save hundreds of euros by booking it yourself. You get the best deal by booking direct with Flybe and we add our hotel then through Amoma, then we always (every time) have the best deal.

Flybe can't be rivalled in their topnotch services and their staff are the friendliest. We get excited flying them as they're so relaxed with their bagging and other things, obviously don't carry the entire kitchen sink lol. Honestly, fly with Flybe and you'll thank me. Those who have bad things to say are whingers and I've seen some customers complaining about silly things like not having a TV on board. Erm hello? It's a budget short-haul airline...go hire a jet! Anyway, for travellers like me who love REAL value for money and overall excellence, then Flybe is the way to go. Highly recommended!

Flybe is the king of budget travel, their services are second to none and they're very cheap too. Keep up the good work, you have lifetime customers in us!

Leaving Amsterdam we took the wrong tram so arrived later than planned at Schiphol airport - we had checked in online so only had to drop bag. We got to the desk just 3 mins after closing. We begged the staff member to receive our bag. She was indifferent and we saw we were not going to persuade her. We asked her for the supervisor- she pointed to the ticket sales desk. We rushed over there, asked for the supervisor and were told it was the woman we had just spoken to!! Why send us in a wild goose chase? This new staff member proposed to lecture us on getting to the airport on time! We later found out that the plane took off 6 mins late anyway!

This flight was booked as part of a package holiday. On check in we were informed flight was full and my wife and I could not sit together which we accepted. The rest of the out ward flight was ok although the seat belt signs were on virtually all flight with very mild turbulence.
The return flight check in was very slow and again we were informed that we could not sit together. When we got on board we found another couple were sitting next to each of us so we swapped!
We were then informed there was a problem with the luggage and the air conditioning on the aircraft was not working while it was parked. We then sat in a sweltering aircraft for nearly an hour it was 30c outside with very little information.
To compound everything when we got back to Manchester they had lost one of our cases which we did get back after a few days.
