I use this route roughly every 3 months and had another great flight with Flybe. Lovely cabin staff who are always most helpful. Clear announcements by Carol, head cabin crew on this occasion. Good range of snacks and drinks available on the flight which is just over an hour duration. I only ever take hand luggage with me so check...

Return trip to Toulouse to snowboard in Andorra. All ran very smoothly. Service on the aircraft great both ways. Captain June flew us home - a very welcome female voice from the cockpit. Excellent landings both ends.

I have flown Flybe from Southampton many times and have always had a good experience from booking to check-in and service on the flight. The planes are always clean and the flights have always been on time. Paris CDG check-in always leaves a lot to be desired as the staff on the check-in desks are always surly but I understand...

This is my first time flying with this airline, and it was efficient and clean, and the seats were more comfortable than the previous 7 hour flight with another airline. The plane left on time from Manchester and arrived early, what else could you want

Our flight took off two,hours late causing me to miss an important business meeting, totally unprofessional and with no real excuse. Apparently they must have decided to combine two flights as there was about four passengers booked on the first and only about ten on the combined flight. All this for the outrageous cost of more than £120.00 for about...

My sister and daughter booked me on my first flight in 30 years and although the crew were not aware of this were very accommodating and kind. There were no delays or bumps but plenty of smiles from the cabin crew. Highly recommended. Will definitely fly with flybe again. Thank you.

Flew from Manchester to Belfast city airport. In airport announcements were limited to the large screens dotted around the departure lounge. Flight was boarded quickly and efficiently. The flight was full all the overhead compartments were full. Many passengers seemed to have luggage larger than the measurements allowed. We actually took off about 10 minutes late but landed on time....

All went well. On time. Usual budget flight experience. Crew polite and friendly. Not many on the flight so bags off really quickly. I pay for extra legroom.
