Having had a cancellation and a corresponding delay (3 hours) on the outward leg of this visit, I was hoping for more luck on the return - sadly this was not to be. One of the problems and the reason why, forgetting the 4 hour delay, that this event was so stressful was the total lack of feedback over why...

As a nervous passenger I look to the pilot on boarding the plane. Got a reassuring wave. Good flight updates and felt safe and reassured.

I flew from Edinburgh to Manchester in December 2017 following a cancellation of my original flight from New York. While I was aware of the airline before I travelled I had never flown with them before. Beautiful aircraft, two lovely cabin crew and a fantastic pilot who boarded the plane and spoke to us for several minutes after we had...

My girlfriend and I have been loyal customers for the last 2 years, using the Southampton to Nantes connection approximately once a month. Imagine my dismay today when my girlfriend went to book yet another flight with your company only to find that you have made a massive change to your regular schedule. We were heartbroken to see that your...

I cannot recommend this airline as we had an hour delay leaving Doncaster to fly to Malaga due to air traffic control problems and on the way back just as we got to Malaga airport my husband received a text to say we would be delayed going home. As our flight was at 10.25pm and after having to vacate our...

I've been flying with Flybe for business now for a while and most of the time it's absolutely fine. I've had a couple of flights delayed by 40-50 minutes, but no later. I tend to not bother paying extra to reserve a particular seat. In my experience, if you end up in the back row you lack overhead luggage space...

I was charged £67 for a carry-on bag and witnessed other customers with same size carry-on not be charged. When I contacted the Flybe Customer Relations Dept, I was spoken to very rudely and unprofessionally by Jade Webb, who told me there was nothing she could do to avoid the fee. When I asked to speak with a Customer Relations...
