Flybe are very pleasant to fly with very rarely any delays in departure times. Small planes but comfortable Aircrew always pleasant. Food on board limited but good quality Flights not as cheap as Ryanair but not treated like cattle either!

This airline is very much what you pay for. It is cheap but then the quality and comfort reflects that. However, i would say it is good value for the amount that you pay.

The flight to and from Amsterdam is a short one, we were made to feel comfortable and the captain and air crew made us welcome and safe. They say time fly’s when you’re having fun, but flying really isn’t fun, but it gets you there. We arrived early at both ends so no complaints here.

Comfortable flight and on time. The down side is the laborious airport security. Next time I'll go "Fast track".

I regularly fly from Birmingham to Scotland and flyby are the only company, so choice is non existent. Mostly the flights are OK, but if you take the last flight of the day, then expect to be delayed, this happens so often. The flights are often full and it can be impossible to get hand luggage in the overhead lockers...

Me and my partner had just spent a lovely weekend away in Amsterdam. Our flight getting there - no problems. Our flight coming home - many problems. We were sitting at our boarding gate, 2 hours before departure, then an announcement was made saying our flight was cancelled. So I asked staff to ask what to do now, she directed...

My complaint is that whilst it is good to be able to fly so cheaply; we would have been cheaper to go by car and arrive on time for our appointment. Thus we would have saved car parking fees, extra beverage costs and the inconvenience and inefficiency of being late for our meeting. We will certainly carefully weigh up the...
