Average airline although since they became a franchise partner with Flybe they gave deteriorated! Would not recommend but if you are flying to Guernsey from the South West your choices are very limited!

Working in Jersey for a few days. Southampton is an easy airport to get to and the flight times were suitable. Delayed nearly an hour due to fog which is not the airline fault, but kept informed. Aircraft looks clean and well maintained. Quite a small aircraft but there was plenty of legroom. Overhead storage is a bit tight but...

This is the first time that I have flown with Blue Islands from City and, even though the journey was a little bumpy, it was short and really over before I realised. They are now part of the Flybe franchise so if I have to go to Jersey again from City, doubtless I will fly with the new operator. There...

When we left Jersey at 7am it was still dark and it was a very windy rainy day, the captain explained we would climb to 11,000 feet so to avoid turbulence. 35 minutes later we landed in Southampton, weather was bright and dry. Excellent flight.

Pleasant flight. No delays, No bumps with bad weather. No free drinks. First time at London city airport. Normal small airport. Although the airport was in the city of London, it wasn't of greater advantage getting into central London itself. It doesn't really have much advantage time wise, comparing it to Heathrow or Gatwick airports. It still took an hour...

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Brilliant to be able to fly to Jersey from Bristol in 45 mins. The advantage of a small Blue Island 50 seater plane, quick check in and efficient services all round.

We booked with Flybe but Blue Islands provided the serfvice. Was OK- small aircraft but efficient and staff were helpful. Timings were good outward, but coming back we sat on the aircraft for an hour waiting to take off- the captain said Southanpton Airport 'was closed' due to lack of staff! Not, I think, the fault of the airline and...

Efficient and well presented staff. Only one class )economy) to fly on this short trip. Seats have good leg room unless you are very tall. In-flight food and drink a bit expensive.
