Cheap flights to rival Ryanair
Member Name: vicky_wire
Advantages: Cheap and cheerful, easy to check in
Disadvantages: They change your flights, but give you notice
We recently used Flybe for a trip to Northern Ireland, flew return from Manchester for around £35 (this was booked a fair few months in advance hence the cheap price!). The booking process was smooth, however about a month later we had an email to say our flight home was cancelled and we had to take another one, which was a bit inconvenient but we did have months notice.
The checking in process is easy, you just type your confirmation into the machines at the airport, so no need to worry about printing off barcodes or anything, everything prints for you in the airport. You can even change seats to sit with your mates or grab a window seat, which we wern't expecting!
The plane itself is basic, but they flew on time and we had no problems with staff. Just what you would expect for a budget flight, no frills, can't complain for the cheap price. We had a slight bit of turbulance on the first flight, and people started screaming, which was hilarious, and a bit more on the way back, but I love turbulance!!
Other than the change in flight time, no problems with this airline!
Summary: I'll use them again if they are cheap! They like to sting you on taxes though!!
