First time flying with Flybe since they combined with Blue Island. Very good service. Journey was supposed to be 1Hr. I took 35 minutes. we must have had a good tailwind. Feels daunting sometime as there are only 12 rows of seats. 48 passengers. Very good service, you can still buy drinks and duty free, it there is time!!!

Our connecting flight from Manchester to Exeter was cancelled and right from the start the customer service and lack of care was dreadful. No explanation was given; one member of staff went to the passengers in the front part of the queue to talk to them and couldn't even be bothered to come over and explain to the rest of...

Flybe prides itself on being a regional budget airline aimed at business travellers. I guess that's why it allows itself to be atrocious when it comes to routes that aren't geared towards business commuters, but towards tourist travellers. Here's what's rotten about Flybe: 1) They are very likely to change the schedule of your flight after you book. If you...

"Scott" took our particulars at check in (all the automatic check-in machines were out of order). He was very efficient, polite and helpful (far quicker than the automated system would have been for the 2 of us). The whole process was slick getting through to the departure lounge and onboard our propeller flybe flight. Onboard staff were helpful and efficient....

This flight from Southampton to Belfast was easy from start to finish. During quiet times getting through security is very fast. The departure area is adequate. The flight itself on a Dash 800 was on time and the staff were pleasant. I will certainly use Flybe again.
