On check in we were disappointed that the clerk clearly was having a bad day and had left her commonsense at home. We expect it of TUI at Bournemouth but not Flybe. After that everything went smoothly. We boarded a few minutes behind schedule and accordingly took off a few minutes late but that was all. The in flight service...

I use Flybe's Dublin Southampton route regularly (at least once a month). They operate Dash Q400 turboprops, which can be a bit bumpy on landing. Punctuality and reliability are generally OK. Southampton airport is a breeze compared with the London airports that I also use regularly. Flybe tends to be pricier than other budget carriers.

Not the cheapest option flying from Southampton but it is local to us and saves the trip to Gatwick. My wife needs assisstance at the airport and they have always been very good and helpful. Malaga airport must be the very best for assisstance - nothing is too much trouble.

We were travelling back on Sunday of Bank Holiday August weekend and the rail prices were extortionate so booked Flybe Manchester to Edinburgh instead, with a convenient mid afternoon flight. Unfortunately, that was cancelled so the flight didn't get in until near enough 22.45 and then we waited for ever for our luggage.

The hand luggage size allowance on flybe is way too small . The planes are too cramped and the flight prices not as good as other low cost airlines, lack of other choices is probably one of reasons a lot of people use them.

I flew with Flybe to Manchester at the end of an international flight from New York to Paris. The plane was small but fine for a short flight. The onboard bins are very small and several passengers were complaining that their relatively small bags wouldn't fit. It would be beneficial were this to be advertised. Refreshments are available on the...

La Rochelle airport was an eye opener. Very easy going place. Small turboprop aircraft but for the duration of the journey was perfectly fine although space was at a premium. Friendly cabin crew.

Received email saying our flight had been changed by a whole day! Brilliant. Birthday plans ruined. Money lost on accommodation already booked. Plane was half empty flying out on the Thursday,but full on the changed date flying back on the Monday. Pretty obvious the Tuesday flight cancelled due to lack of tickets sold but how is that the customers fault?...
