“Acceptable Flights”
Review of flybmi (formerly bmi regional)


Reviewed October 13, 2018

Flight was delayed by around 40 minutes on the outbound and was on time on the return. There isn't a terrible amount to say about the service except that the planes are old and small but are comfortable with all leather seats and the seat pitch is generous and therefore comfortable. A two hour flight gets you a beer and a soft drink with either a KIt-Kat or a bag of pretzels which is perfectly acceptable and the staff appeared to be professional and courteous. I did note that the single toilet did not flush on the return flight and there were no hand towels available and very little toilet roll. Overall, a vanilla service for a vanilla price, no real complaints.

If I could give them negative stars I would. Admittedly it was our fault, but my husband left his iPad in the seat pocket of this very small aircraft and we were the last passengers off. We had not left it for more than 20 minutes before we alerted them to our loss and when they went back to check the seat pocket where we were sitting, it had gone and despite our best efforts to locate it, it was never handed in. Either the cleaners or cabin crew had taken it. Not as uncommon as you would think I have since found out. A lesson learnt. A shame really as the rest of the flight/service was good. Oh apart from the delay causing us to miss our connection.

Very tricky experience. First your flight gets delayed or cancelled. Then you issue a complaint. After months of emails and letters, your claim gets finally accepted. They ask you for your payment details and then they disappear. You won't get paid and they will ignore any further communication. Can't believe Lufthansa is still cooperating with them!

The plane I was due to fly on drove off the runway. As a result the aircraft was not suitable to fly so our flight was cancelled. Also as a result the whole airport was closed whilst the runway was cleared. Flybmi refused compensation because the airport was closed. It was, but because their pilot left the runway!
