“Flight OK but car hire and parking very poor”
Review of Flybe


Reviewed September 22, 2018 via mobile

All OK with the flight and check in but I will not be accepting the offers of car hire and parking again.
The Avis car hits in Toulouse was painfully slow and the substitute car was a cheap low power variety that would not have been any good for touring so good job we only made a short journey.

The long term parking at Manchester airport was badly organised and no shuttle buses turned up on either arrival or departure so we had to walk to the terminal.

I recommend using direct purchase it will not take much more effort and it would be a better service.

Cheaper than the train! New jets being used now and acceptable levels of comfort. Staff were friendly and efficiant both ways. Sadly we were delayed both ways,due to Gatwick being over busy......isnt it always! But its only a 40 minute flight against 6-7 hours on the train.

Nice budget airline offering cheap flights all over Europe. Today we took a quick hop from Manchester to Edinburgh, Scotland. Not a lot of room overhead for baggage but all worked out. Nowadays it is hard to find any flight offering anything beverage or snack wise for free so bring your card and expect to pay. Plane was a smaller two prop plane but all was good and ride was pleasant. Would fly again, worth the lower fair to get to those treasured destinations!

Southampton is convenient for us and we like the size of it - no great crowds or long queues to get through security checks.

Flight was short so leg room wasn't much of an issue.

Hot drinks were ok as was in-flight service.

Have flown with Flybe more than once and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.

Despite this plane being rather small and a propeller plane it was on time, very clean and comfortable, the exact opposite of Ryanair! The whole flight experience could not be faulted
