A really comfortable flight. Short and sweet. Was quite worried as it was such a small plane but there was no need as it was a great flight with spectacular views.

Due to a smaller number of passengers, the plane was changed to a smaller one, and so our extra leg room seats were not available. We explained to the...

We often use Flybe and I have found the whole booking system easy and convenient. The airport is local.

I am much more likely to choose Flybe...

My flight from Exeter to Norwich was via Manchester. The first plane was delayed, I received a text 40 mins after the flight time to say it was delayed - this did not come as a surprise! I was then told that Flybe would hold all of the other connecting flights out of Manchester but not mine as it was...

Checked in on line but had a printer problem, the barcode would not read. The staff at the airport reprinted and checked in the luggage without any problem. Flight attendants were pleasant and helpful. Flight left on time no arrived early. Both flights were the same. Would definitely travel again with Flybe

Does what it says on the tin! Great flight out from Leeds Bradford to Belfast, approx 45 mins. Hassle free. Booked car hire through Sixt, who were also very friendly. Flight home was quick and problem free.
