Advantages Quick, cheap and easy
Disadvantages Not enough hand baggage allowed
I see and hear so many things and have read some rotten reviews about Flybe, but I have just used them again this past weekend and have to say I have never had anything but excellent service with them.I use them several times a year flying from Southampton up to Manchester. I always fly on a Saturday morning (the 8.50am flight) and return from Manchester on either the 5 or 8pm flight. Only once I have been delayed in Southampton but that was only by 10 minutes, which we made up on the way, therefore meaning I landed at the specified time. I wish I could say the same for Air France who I used from Southampton once and who cancelled not only the flight I was booked on at 6am, but also the next 3 meaning we finally took off at 8pm that evening (there really isn't enough to do in Southampton airport for that long but go totally stir crazy).
In comparison to most food outlets (parks, seaside booths etc) their prices on board for teas and coffees is on a par. Yes dearer than I think they should be, but then most places over charge for the basics these days, so it's to be expected. The coffee is hot though so what more do you need?I've never used the toilet on board (not really worth it for a 40 minute flight) but I've been told they are clean enough.
The flight attendants I can't fault. Flying up on Saturday my friend realised she had left her jacket in the airport, so the attendant radioed through for her and had her jacket collected and delivered to the plane before we took off. I have also seen how great they are with disabled passengers and it's this attention to detail that really makes the difference between good crew and great crew.For a budget airline I personally think their seats are great. They are comfy and have a really good amount of leg room (far better than BA planes of a similar size where your knees are tucked up under your chin).
