We've flown this route a few times, each time using Flybe. The planes are comfortable and practical for short-haul flights. The nature of the route means there are often delays and cancellations, however this is out of the airline's control and they deal with the logistics extremely well. The flight crew are absolutely lovely. This airline may be budget, but...

I was grateful for help to check in at Southampton but would in future like to know how to choose one's seat.The flight was on time and comfortable. I could have used help to board with my small...

Used flyb to fly down to newquay in Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Leg room was more than what you get on easyjet and the crew were really helpful and friendly. A slight delay on the return flight of 20 minutes but that didn't spoil the trip. I just wish they flew to newquay all year.

We were very happy again with the whole experience. Traveling with a disabled passenger can be frustrating at the very least but this airline have it just right, They could teach Ryanair a thing or two. We were slightly delayed on the return journey and the airline informed us by text before hand. Check in went without a hitch with...

My flight took 50 mins and it was really easy to check in at Southampton airport. The flight went on time and it was cheaper than the train! The flight back to Southampton was delayed by 2hrs due to sickness of one of the staff. However I was given a voucher to go and buy some food and drink so...

I haven't used Flybe before, and am pleased I will be next week on my return! Spacious seats on a small plane, no feeling of claustrophobia and charming staff, speedy check in too! I may just have been lucky..tho think the plane may be standard! I will certainly book with them again

Fantastic. Only fly about 17,000 ft. This is proper flying, you can see everything below you. Coming back was better as it was a cloudless day, we passed Guernsey, Herm, Sark and Alderney with great views of them.

Excellent flight left on time, arrived on time. Pleasant flight attendants. Easy booking with e-tickets and online check-in. Return flight generally good again left on time and arrived on time. Faro does not have online check-in, therfore queues quite long.
