Totally on time no problems at all, fabulous staff. Check in soo fast, security also so fast, slightly haphazard. I would prefer Leeds Bradford over any other airport from now on. Spot on.

I had no idea what to expect apart from a vague feeling that Flybe sounded like a cost cutting option and it might be a bit basic. We went out on a turbo prop 'plane and returned on a similar sized jet. There was very little difference apart fom the jet being a bit quieter I guess. I thought the...

On time and a very effective airline. Second time I’ve flown with them and I would definitely recommend them. 2 by 2 seating formation on the plane was perfect for the short hop for me and my partner.

I was travelling with my 6 month old for the first time on public transport. The staff at both airports were very helpful and patient as it took a lot longer for me to get through security as I had a baby with me. Helped me with my carry on bags and pram. I believe that because of their help...

Our flight was initially delayed due to technical problems. Subsequently it was CANCELLED. Various options were offered, all of which were impractical. Miraculously all those wanting to return to Newcastle were all to be accommodated on a later flight some 4 hours+ later. At no time was any care or concern given to the passengers. The luggage was dumped on...

Budget airline but reliable. Small twin prop plane on this route. Comfortable leather seats and plenty of leg room. Recomend you check the size of your case including wheels as overhead storage is tight. No air staff at departure so delayed for 2 hours whilst a crew was found to fly.

Flyby does the trick and gets your from A to B for a good price. It flies to airports which many larger airports don't and at a good frequency too. Having flown with Flyby about 10 times I have never had an issue with the staff or service. Yes the planes are small but on the routes that they fly...

Very busy flight and seemed to me that we where herded on at the very last minute, might just be me though. Once inside it felt cramped, two rows of two seats although the plane was very full I did have a spare seat next to me. No snack, but not that bothered. The service inside was efficient and speedy....
