2hr delay leaving Bristol & a 3hr delay coming home, how is it whenever we fly Flybe we're always delayed. It's a Shame because the 2 seater aircraft are very nice to fly on, all I can say is hopefully Ingham's will charter a different company for the flights in the future.

We had booked for a short relaxing break from a stress free Southampton. What we got was far from stress free. The Airline delayed our flight and others with no explanation and there was no one available to help. The Ground staff provided by Swissport were useless. The only saving grace was that we had access to the new Business...

FOUR DAYS later they have still not tracked my suitcase, have not bother calling me, and have not bothered emailing me wth...

The Flybe flight was good. More leg room then some other airlines. Personally I would like to hear more information from the crew about what we can see and where we are flying above. I always find Flybe a good carrier.

The flight was delayed by 2 hours by technical difficulties. It was expected to take off at 16.30 they emailed me at 16.40 telling me it was going to departure at 18.30 and finally took off at 19.30. They gave us vouchers for refreshments for...5 euros. You can't even buy a decent coffee with that in Dublin airport. Plus, it...

Had a pleasant flight, the amenities on board were good for a very short flight. Check in was mostly easy, the app unfortunately is down at the moment so had to check in online, which meant the boarding passes were documents instead of e-boarding passes. My main reason for the 3* is the annoyance of the hold baggage sizes. We...

Unlike Bournemouth, which is always a shambles, the check in.and baggage drop was smooth and efficient and security was thorough but pleasantly staffed. We boarded on time, left on time and had a smooth flight with good service which arrived on time in Verona (where the service was first class.' Unlike some airlines (such as TUI) we were not badgered...

On our Paris flight we were delayed half an hour we didn’t get an explanation why. But cabin crew were really friendly and helpful, inflight service was good and a variety.

Flybe are overall good. They have their issues like any other airline - delays due to mechanical or operational snags, but we've only had a couple of significant problems in around 10 years flying with them.
