Delay due to non existent “bad weather” caused me to miss my connecting flight. No apologies no refunds, nothing but patronising scripted bull. They literally cost me a wasted £500 in taxis, dog boarding and of course both their flight cost and my connecting flight to Norway. They are institutionally late, but this was one too many. I will never...

Horrendous - no other airline comes close. Cancelled flight just before departure, and phone support closed at 6pm, despite there being an entire plane that needed to be rebooked.

Having travelled for over three years with the same hand luggage (Which fits in the overhead locker) we were advised on our last flight that our case was too large and Flybe wanted to charge an extra £50 for placing the case in the hold. We managed to squeeze the case into Flybe’s sizer equipment, thus avoiding the extra cost....

CX now codeshare with BE on domestic Uk flight instead of BA. I flew Business class CX which was of course amazing then arrived at both Edinburgh and Heathrow to find a right dodgy set up- long lines at check in and transfer and a very minimal service. Both flights late and no info given at the time. They are...

It’s all about the baggage, and vile staff at Edinburgh airport . Shame on you . And what a dreadful impression for travellers visiting Scotland . Two flights for business purposes . First flight we were caught by the baggage scam. Where previously the same hand bag was accepted by Flybe, suddenly it exceeded the sizing trolley that was matched...

‘Delay is due to the late arrival of incoming flight’ seems to be the get out clause for Airlines. Yes we know. But the fact is your flight is late again !! man up and say ‘flight is late again sorry’ we are crap!
