Every thing was as expected, which sounds a bit lame, but it was good to see one of the smaller airlines getting it right. The Stobart plane was comfortable and it was just a decent trip to a beautiful place. My first visit to the island. Bag size a little restrictive.

We used Flybe to save going to Liverpool on that occasion and we are glad this option is here. The plane seems so small compared to others ive flown on but it could also be that our outbound flight to Paris was virtually empty! Good service and no delays on either leg of the journey. I would certainly fly with...

I have no problem with the small aircraft, narrow aisles, and lack of leg room in the seats. That's why I fly with these types of airlines. I do have one major issue, however. Flybe, and I'm guessing many of the other discount airlines, have not reduced the permissible dimensions for carry on items to the point that anything larger...

I was impressed with Flybe especially for what I paid for the flight. Check in and baggage check was easy. Seats were comfortable and spacious and the flight was on time. No inflight entertainment

The great thing about flying out of Southampton is the ease of check in and boarding, except for peak holiday time of course. The staff were helpful and attentive on board although the in-flight anouncements were inaudible. However our return trip from Edinburgh was awful. The distances you have to walk from car hire return to check-in to departure gate...

Our choice of this airline was governed solely by the availability of suitable flights from our local airport. We had been warned of possible poor service and were therefore not surprised. After a one hour delay late in the evening excused by hold ups of the previous flight we arrived in Malaga Airport very late at night just as the...

Aircraft with propellors may look a bit iffy, but it's a short trip and with good weather the views are great; flying low over Blackpool tower and seeing the Isle of Man from above is an experience. A "no frills" flight and the staff are great.

Despite the staff always being very friendly and the added free chocolate at the end, whenever I fly with this service the plane is always delayed. I have sat in airports for hours with no explanation as to why it's late and always on the way home when I'm tired anyway. I keep using this company as it is cheap,...
