Roundtrip from Man-Edi. We did check in a piece of luggage as the 10kg allowance says it includes your handbag and it was winter. The check in is online and then we dropped the bag off at a self service machine. The flights were both on-time and our case arrived super quick - in fact think there were only 3...

worst company ever. Don't book with this company unless you want to lose your money, your time and your temper. Today I had a flight from London to Paris CDG and the flight was canceled with no previous notice. Had to travel to airport to find out that the flight was canceled. evenmore: the company gives no compensation to costumers...

Flybe. I've used this airline regularly but while the trip to Edinburgh was fine, the return was a pain. We were late taking off, as the flight crew said there was fog in Exeter. We took off & when we got to Exeter it was indeed fogbound, so we circled for hours hoping for the fog to clear. It didn't!...

Flybe operates relatively small aircraft, which means they are usually pretty full. However high occupancy doesnt seem to translate into very competitive prices. Easyjet and Ryan are always cheaper on relatively similar provibcial routes. Dunno why? But aircraft moder, clean and staff/srrvice good

Our first experience with Flybe - we just had to choose the only day in recent memory when all flights from Exeter were cancelled because of fog. It could and should have been chaos but the Flybe ground staff were superb. Tired ,harassed by complaining passengers and worked of their feet the small team coped with everything that was thrown...

Our first flight with FlyBe or (FlightMaybe) as our friends call them and sure enough our flight was delayed from Exeter. The Flight over was quick and trouble free, the planes are slightly dated and could do with a good refurb. The flights were relatively cheap and we got where we wanted to be :)

This was a lunchtime flight to London on a Friday and we did the return on the Sunday. Checking in was easy at the airport and the Flybe staff helpful and polite. The Boarding of the plane was hassle free and the flight just long enough to get served tea and coffee, you have to buy these but the prices...

Very nice friendly cabin crew however the aircrafts always seem to be small which makes me very nervous indeed. Turbulence is consequently always bad.
