Newest Review: ... method via Booking.com but it was beyond my ability to find it in the time I looked. That was slightly disappointing, as I would prefer to do online check-in whilst away and cannot always access a printer. Assuming that I could find out how to do so, I would definitely do that in future. My experience of the flight itself was pretty decent. I flew from Gatwick and passed through security ... more

Having to take a short weekend break to Belfast. Ok that sounds wrong. Ok, I will try again. Having planned a short weekend break to Belfast I needed to take a flight there. (That sounds better!) Looking at all available options for the times I needed, I ended up making a booking through Booking.com with Flybe. The price was reasonable so I was quite pleased with it. There were added extras for things such as picking your seats or hold luggage. However, as I was travelling alone and only for a short period, I had no need to add to the expense.

I feel it's my civic duty to warn anybody out there who may be considering flying with Flybe NOT TO! My New Year's resolution is NEVER TO FLY WITH FLYBE AGAIN!

Their web site is abysmal and tries at every stage to charge extra for everything. Apart from that, it actually selects the wrong flights (on Safari under OS X) and then you can't get through to their call centre to get it changed. A truly noxious company.

Have flown with them three times so far - twice from Birmingham to Paris and the third from Birmingham to Aberdeen. Birmingham to Paris CDG was problem-free, except for the second time when my wife and I were returning home from a week-long break in the City of Lights. Flybe actually operated the Air France flight, and Air France do the ground services at CDG airport, less said about that the better (long queue, not enough check-in staff) :) However, Birmingham to Aberdeen has been in the snow this month, and the only problem was that we left about an hour late because there was a snowfall at Birmingham requiring the plane to be de-iced, which put ...
