When a relative experienced bad disruption because flybe cant run to a schedule, I coukd have been forgiven for thinking it was a one off, but sitting at the airport 1h20 later than the flight should have left today I realise they must be unreliable. If you use them do not expect it to be on time and plan for...

Plane was late arriving in Dusseldorf due to medical emergency on flight. That was OK but when I expressed my concern that I was worried about being able to get to my connecting flight they simply advised me to speak to an information officer on the ground. Problem was there was no one to speak to at arrivals so I...

Pleasant cabin and helpful staff. My young daughter is a nervous flyer and the staff on our return flight from Birmingham were more than good to her, putting her at ease right up until the few seconds before take off. We've travelled again with them as they were so good with her and meant she was less nervous than with...

Good amount of legroom. Planes were clean and in good order. Cabin crew were very pleasant. On-board refreshment prices overly high (as per most airlines). Nothing to complain about: for a 3 hour economy airlineflight it was fine and they didn't lose our luggage, so happy to use Flybe again. Check in at Norwich was quick and easy. Check in...

This was a one and a half hour flight. Take off was a few minutes late but got to the destination on time. Check-in was ok. Overall flight experience was good. You need to purchase food or drinks if needed. Staff were pleasant. Very small plane,but given the short flight time it really didn’t matter.

Flew to Paignton today using FLYBE for first time. I found the flight,Aircrew, check-in service all exceptional standard. We where treated like people rather than just herded on like cattle which some airlines tend to do. Highly recommend FLYBE to anyone and I will certainly be using in future but the car away.
