“Great service to Southampton”
Review of flybmi (formerly bmi regional)


Reviewed 1 January 2018 via mobile

The link between Southampton and Munich is a really useful one. The real attraction for those living on the South coast is the return to Southampton and its very friendly and quick service on arrival. Parking is also a treat. Beats Heathrow hands down.

The connection between Southampton and Munich is now well established and is a really useful service running at sensible times. The jet aircraft don’t have much cabin space but that is not inconvenient given the speed of the flight and the convenience of Southampton airport.

Flight was slightly late, but they made up time well.
It's a short flight, slightly under and hour, more full of business people than holiday makers.

Would not recommend.
Used to be a good airline East Midlands to Brussels no problem years ago, always on time. Past year lots of cancellations at last minute with no warning. Very unreliable we prefer to use Birmingham to Brussels using Brussels Airlines as they don’t let us down. Still waiting for compensation from two flights that were cancelled in October! Have heard that bmi regional don’t pay up!!!
We can’t see this route lasting much longer or the airline surviving as the customer care is none existent!
Take action bmi regional!

Tuesday 5/12 flight to Munich, told delay due to staff problem with plane flying in from Munich. As the morning went on the delay got longer and longer. Given food voucher for £4 after 2 hours wait, finally took off 2hrs 55mins late, 3 hours would have been decent refund. Return flight 8/12 delayed 1 hour due to late connecting flight but left on freezing transfer bus for about 20mins with doors open. Missing passengers arrived having been kept waiting at the gate. We had to be de-iced which added an extra 15mins. To sum it up we waited flight out and return longer than both flights.Not a good experience BMI.
