Flybe offer great deals at short notice which I've never quibbled at. While there are certainly bigger planes around, you still get plenty of legroom and on-board service is spot on. For the price I pay on each trip, I at least know what to expect - no complaints.

Southampton airport is simple to fly from. The early morning flights are among the most straight forward. With our 5 month old we left on time. The crew were excellent from start to finish

I fly with Flybe on a regular basis to and from Edinburgh and it is always delayed for some reason but no reason why and never and apology. Staff are always friendly on board the flights but I think when a flight is delayed they should at least offer you a free tea or coffee

Flybe were fine. No problems apart from a delay on return flight for uncommunicated reasons. Problem was booking with eDreams whom I naively hadn`t realised were agents. I paid them with a debit card to avoid charges.They paid flybe with a corporate credit card for which Flybe charged me! They specialise in sending "no reply" emails and are impossible to...

I fly this route about once every two months. Here is why i think FlyBe gets it right: - when more and more budget airline have compulsory on-line checking, it is still possible to check at the airport - the flights are (almost always) on-time - there is not the atmosphere of profiteering i have seen on some other budget...

Ah the excitement of flying off on holiday! You rush to the airport to give yourself lots of time to stand in a queue at security because you know the person organising that experience hasn't a clue how to work out the level of staff required to cover the number of people booked onto flights at any given time, nor...
