First time flying with Flybe. Check in was straight forward and the desk opened ahead of time, which was useful. Boarded slightly late, then had to be reboarded fir some reason, which as not made clear, we were given different reasons. Once on board, flight attendant was lovely, very friendly and helpful.

I had a flight delayed by over two hours on the way out and my return flight cancelled as I was boarding. This seems to be a common problem with Flybe now,and it's not as if their flights are that cheap anymore.. . .😠 I'd recommend all users of Flybe to make sure they're not in a hurry to get...

Awful customer service. Lost my luggage for two days on my return to the UK. Had to replace heated rollers and hair dryer- plus lost a days pay as on zero hours contract. Flybe turned down really small claim for essential replacements. More important to save a few pounds than have my custom again. They’ve ignored the rules under Montreal...

Booked the flight online for reasonable price. Tried to pay for extra baggage online - it went through and payment (£52 for 2 bags) came out of my bank but received no email confirmation. On check in they said no booking for baggage was in the system but I could check my larger bag for £40 and take the smaller...

Nice flight. Plane was a Bombardier regional jet, small but very comfortable. Service was adequate for a 40 minute airtime flight.

When bugdet flight companies mean cheap flights the dont tell you about day light robbery of their in food and drink. The flight crew should have worn masks and changed thier names to Dick Turpin!! Seats do not recline but as you are so packed into the plane its actually a blessing. Airport both ends were Ok.

A slight delay, but nothing to get heated about, other than that, an easy check in and boarding. Comfortable short flight. We arrived early and there was an earlier flight, my argument that putting us on that would give them more flexibility on our flight fell on deaf ears and would only happen if we paid £48 each. Preferred to...
