“First impressions are good”

published 03/07/2008

Professional staff, no fuss, rewards programme

Bit pricey, old planes, add ons

In the last few years the 'no frills' budget airlines have allowed us all to take advantage of cheaper flights. City breaks in Europe are now within easy reach financially & many have people have taken advantage of weekend retreats in Europe close to an airport thanks to regular air services that...

My partner kindly decided to take me on holiday to Paris and bought seats with Flybe from Exeter to Charles de Gaulle. I work in the travel industry and have heard many conflicting opinions of this airline, so decided to travel with a broad mind and decide for myself which rumours were true...

“ Don't Flybe!”

Lots!

I have flown with the flybe on several occasions now with mixed results. Flybe is one of Europe's leading budget airlines with 170 routes to 55 destinations throughout Europe. To see exactly where they fly to I suggest you go to their web site at www.flybe.com. Booking. *********** Booking a...

“Fly Flybe? Maybe!”

published 03/06/2005

Cheap,Cheaper still if you get in early.

Some old planes in the fleet.

I am afraid of heights, let me get this straight before I start, I am so scared I cannot even go higher than three steps up a step ladder for fear of falling. So as you can imagine flying has never really been on my agenda, well until early May this year that is. I was going to attend a meet of...

“They've never let me down”

published 07/06/2012

Quick, cheap and easy

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...

“Flybe to the moon.”

published 12/05/2013

Cheap, comfortable, efficient

They don't seem to do an awful lot of flights

I was looking to go to Edinburgh over the May Day weekend and as with most things in my life I left the booking and all that to the last minute. Not always the best idea when you're trying to keep expenses to a minimum. Not being a driver I had to fly over really and using the excellent website...

Low Cost, seats allocated

smaller aircraft can be bumpy

To be a little different FlyBe as British European are now known (www.flybe.com)they have come up with a simple idea. Low Fares, Seats allocated, pay for inflight drinks and snacks and if you are transferring through any other airport they can usually check the luggage all the way to your final...

“Flymaybe. Do you feel lucky?”

published 21/07/2008

Okay when they can get it together.

Terribly unreliable, disgraceful customer relation...

Do not be fooled by FlyBe positioning themselves as a budget airline. They aren't cheap if you need to book seats less than a couple of weeks in advance, and the flights likely to be used for business trips are heavily penalised cost-wise. I fly regularly to UK and EU destinations with FlyBe from...

hidden costs, very poor punctuality

The Website... Flybe website isn't bad. Searching for flight availability to different regional and international airports is fairly straightforward and the search results are returned with flights on dtes either side and upgrade options. There are details of partner organisations - like Avis, so...

Expensive food.

I have just returned from an 8 day holiday from malaga and we used the flybe services between malaga and southampton both times. On the way out, we arrived for our 08:05 flight at around 06:45, it was around 5 minutes to check in, and we went and had a coffee in the aura coffee shop. From the...

“Flybe Airline No Frills”

published 19/03/2009

good value

none

FLYBE AIRLINE I needed to get to Newcastle very quickly so I decided to fly up there. The only airline that flew from London Gatwick to Newcastle was Flybe Airline. This is a no frills airline and as it only took me one hour to fly up so I did not mind that it was a little basic. The seats were...

“Flybe? Definately!”

published 24/01/2006

Cheap & convenient

Poor food selection

Flybe is another one of these budget airlines running from local airports. This allow travel to be easy for anyone. I live in Bournemouth, but because they don't fly from my home town, I have to take the short trip to Southampton to fly. I use Flybe to travel to the alps for my skiing trips. They...

“Prices change every day?”

published 12/06/2005

Cheaper than other airlines

Only one flight a day to most detinations

I've now used FlyBe for my holidays twice, once to Jersey and once to La Rochelle. Jersey Flight: This was my first flight with FlyBe. The plane arrived about 45 minutes late, because it was delayed leaving Murcia. This wasn't too much of a problem. Got on the plane (a Bae 146 whisper jet) and...

It was ever so cheap, even over the christmas-holidays. Booking was easy, online, check-in surprisingly fast, but be prepared: The plane was tiny, hardly any room for feet or handluggage and the seats were hard - they save on equipment. The staff was very friendly, the pilot competent, made it in less time as scheduled, and on the return flight they even let us have our extra suitcase for no cost. We flew Manchester-Duesseldorf and I would do it again, if only they offered Glasgow as well! The food - sandwiches - was average in taste, fresh, but not much choice : ham or cheese.
