Travelling through Europe, planned all our travel through our travel agent. Everything went well until we tried to check in to our Paris/Southampton flight. It took nearly an hour to navigate our way through the convoluted Flybe website. We had to fill in form after form. When it finally came to the check in page, it advised that we had...

What a great customer service ! Booked for a funeral which had to be postponed due to unforseen circumstances. Flybe were so accomodating. They rescheduled our flights at no extra charge, couldn't have been nicer. Haven't travelled yet so can't comment on flight etc.

Terrible airline. I fly regularly with flybe because there is no other flight from Manchester to Edinburgh and 90% of the time the flights are delayed. I use them for work because I have no choice but would never use for pleasure.

Firstly flight from Cardiff to Cork was delayed by 2 hours - not going to complain about that as these things happen. However it was the check in service on return flight from Cork to Cardiff that really upset me. My husband and I like to sit together on a flight and i usually pay extra to ensure that we...

Flight was short but pleasant. Only issue is that airport check in time vs flight check in time required us to stand around an inordinate amount of time with our luggage in tow before Flybe opened up flight for check in.
