“Worth the extra for local departures”
Review of Flybe


Reviewed 3 weeks ago

On check in we were disappointed that the clerk clearly was having a bad day and had left her commonsense at home. We expect it of TUI at Bournemouth but not Flybe.
After that everything went smoothly. We boarded a few minutes behind schedule and accordingly took off a few minutes late but that was all.
The in flight service was good, they had not run out of food, and the cabin crew handled a noisy group of alcohol fueled yobs with polite cheerful firmness.
Handling at Malaga was efficient (Is this airport ever busy?) and our pre booked car was waiting for us.
We will always use Flybe from Southampton if they are an option, but sadly our next flights are from Grotty Bournemouth !

I use Flybe's Dublin Southampton route regularly (at least once a month). They operate Dash Q400 turboprops, which can be a bit bumpy on landing. Punctuality and reliability are generally OK. Southampton airport is a breeze compared with the London airports that I also use regularly. Flybe tends to be pricier than other budget carriers.

Not the cheapest option flying from Southampton but it is local to us and saves the trip to Gatwick. My wife needs assisstance at the airport and they have always been very good and helpful.
Malaga airport must be the very best for assisstance - nothing is too much trouble.

We were travelling back on Sunday of Bank Holiday August weekend and the rail prices were extortionate so booked Flybe Manchester to Edinburgh instead, with a convenient mid afternoon flight. Unfortunately, that was cancelled so the flight didn't get in until near enough 22.45 and then we waited for ever for our luggage.

The hand luggage size allowance on flybe is way too small . The planes are too cramped and the flight prices not as good as other low cost airlines, lack of other choices is probably one of reasons a lot of people use them.
