“Great budget flight. ”
Review of Flybe


Reviewed 19 January 2018 via mobile

Flew from Manchester to Belfast city airport. In airport announcements were limited to the large screens dotted around the departure lounge. Flight was boarded quickly and efficiently. The flight was full all the overhead compartments were full. Many passengers seemed to have luggage larger than the measurements allowed. We actually took off about 10 minutes late but landed on time.
Luggage collection at the carousel was very quick. Can't fault the service, comfort or punctuality of this flight. Have used Flybe before and will use them again.

All went well. On time. Usual budget flight experience. Crew polite and friendly. Not many on the flight so bags off really quickly. I pay for extra legroom.

Flybe is a good airline, not as cheap as Ryanair or EasyJet but they are more professional and one feels less like cattle. The planes are clean, flights are prompt. My biggest issue is that the storage lockers are very small and a hard case within the airline dimensions are hard to get into the locker

I was very dubious about flying with Flybe Mainly due to the Airplanes that they use. I'm a nervous flyer and was extremely worried the smaller plane power by Two Propellers would be a rough journey and not safe.

I was wrong. It felt very similiar to a "regular" plane such as a Boeing. So any nervous travellers, do not be put off by the plane!!!

In terms of professionalism, I do not think it's ran professionally. The check in process is not done by Flybe staff, you have to do it yourself.
I actually struggled to find any Flybe staff members in either Airport (East Midlands & Belfast City).

The cabin crew were fairly professional, but definitely not the most attentive I've ever seen.

It's a low-budget airline with less pressure and less standards than other high-end airliners.

The website is average and I managed to make a return trip very easily online.

Very well priced.

Never any issues with Flybe and helpful staff always there for you. Just a pity they didn't fly to every airport
