“Comfy seats and on time”
Review of Flybe


Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I have flown FlyBe many times and they are our go to airline for European flights, partly because we can fly from Birmingham and partly because my wife, who has a bad back, finds them comfortable. Sure they are delayed sometimes but the most recent delay I experienced was due to software crash inside Birmingham airport and you can hardly blame them for that.
A few of the planes are bit older and the seats a bit worn which is the only reason they didn’t get a 5.

    • Customer service (e.g. attitude, care, helpfulness)
    • Cleanliness
    • Legroom
    • Value for money
    • Check-in and Boarding (e.g. efficiency, service at gate)

Always a pleasure to travel with Flybe. It feels like a return to civilised travel .Plenty of seat room and two seater planes. No climbing over bodies to get to the loo. Feels less like cattle being herded into confined spaces

Booked few weeks ago... wasn't cheap. Went to bed at 11pm supposed to fly at 7am and awoke at 4am packed and ready to go. E mail saying sorry flight cancelled. No explanation at all. Lost our holiday weekend gutted and our friends used them to fly to Ireland and they said they were awful too

The first leg of our flight from Edinburgh to Newark, NJ was on Flybe, to Manchester. (The larger part of our flight was on United.) We realize it is a small airline, and it was easy to miss directional information in Edinburgh. Our complaint was that upon arriving in Manchester, the entire plane load was shepherded into a stairwell where we waited until the person seeing us off the plane could come inside, wade through all the passengers and unlock the door at the top of the stairs. People with tight connections were very unhappy in the stairwell, but even less happy when we had to stay in line for a "check in" of sorts that included what we presume was an iris scan before we could move on to our connecting flight. Perhaps that is the norm in the UK, but we're used to getting off one plane and on to another without drama (unless of course, the flight is delayed, gate is changed, etc.) It left us puzzled.

I have flown lots, but this airline was brilliant. The flight was on time, in fact early on the way out. The cabin staff were the most friendly had helpful crew I have ever experienced. Will certainly use them again. Thank you.
