Flown 8 times with FlyBe over the past 4 weeks and overall I find the inflight experience quite pleasant. Crew are generally friendly and efficient, must be tricky on such a short flight! Seats are comfortable for the short duration on a dash 8 aircraft, but I don't think I'd like to be on there for a long flight. I...

Had a bad experience with Flybe recently. We are frequent travellers to Guernsey, on our last trip from Southampton we were stopped from taking our hand luggage on the airplane. The staff said the rules had changed and it was now classed as oversized. We were informed that there was a two week grace and it would be carried in...

A short delay as the ground staff in Amsterdam's passenger figures didn't tie up so we all had to show our boarding cards again whilst on the aircraft. Apart from that, the flight arrived in Manchester on time. Crew were OK - it's a low cost airline so expect noting and you won't be disappointed. The Embraer E175 was very...

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...
