Our flight out was cancelled five minutes before flight time due to a soft tyre. Flybe have no engineering arrangement with the airport engineering department. Flybe now refuse to pay compensation for our ruined holiday despite previous court stated cases. It looks like court is the next option.

I used it as I really struggled with the train last time. Very easy, fast and comfy compared to the train. You do not expect much when you pay 50£ for flight.

First time flying with Flybe, seats were leather and very comfortable, we paid for extra leg room and sat at the front of the plane near the emergency exit, This is genuinely the most thorough safety questioning we have heard regarding sitting at the exits, which we always do being very tall. Staff were excellent, prices a little higher than...
