Very happy with the price, happy with the flight times but when i emailed them to upgrade a booking they didnt come back to me for 6 days, when they did the origanly price i had been quoted went up but if they had responded back to me quickly i would have got the price for the seats, there was no telling them - This was a while back now but i thought i would get my revenge :-)
I've used flyby a lot recently while contracting in Belfast, Site is reasonably easy to navigate once you've figured out to to cancel all of the pre-added optional extras. However some problems with the site, on more than one occasion the website has had my return date booked for a different day. Check in staff confirmed to me it happens a lot, but refused to move me to the correct day, instead forcing me to cough up another £130 to buy another flight, then refunded almost nothing on the erroneous one. So double check the whole date on your confirmation!!
Have used them when flying to jersey from southampton for the past 3 years. Never had a delay or a problem. cabin crew were helpful but i think the plane could have been cleaner. otherwise had a great service.
I see a lot of people commenting on the additional charges at Flybe. This is certainly true and I think it's something that not going to change at this point - just have to accept it I'm afraid. At least with Flybe you get a specific seat rather it being a massive charge to get on or queueing for ages (at least I think that's still the case). They also fly with the Bombardier Q400's which are relatively environmentally friendly.
I've flown with FlyBe a few times recently and i've always found their flights to be good value for the price. My gripe is i've had to try to rearrange flights with FlyBe on a couple of occasions, and it actually works out to be more expensive to rearrange than to cancel and book again. No longer will FlyBe be my first choice airline from my local airport as they were before.
i live in the Isle of man and have limited options of how to travel to the uk, if you are able to book a flight in advance your lucky if you can get a return flight for less than £100 unless you use easy jet, i wanted to book a flight with flybe and it would cost at least £130 compared to easyjet which cost £40 for a return flight. I think flybe need to be a bit more competitive with their prices, people only use them because they dont have much choice and not because they are reliable or cheap!!
Charged me £18 for booking with my debit card ( two people travelling) They say if you pay by Electron card then it is free. Checked with Bank and all major banks have stopped issuing electron cards. I even have a Flybe credit card and they charge for using that as well. Just as well this form of unfair charging is being investigated. Stop saying low prices when you have hidden charges it is unfair and a poor form of customer service.
Although I did use Flybe once this year, it was only because I was taking a party of relatives and friends (including children) to Spain and only Flybe can offer that service from Guernsey. ie No liability on ourselves if we did not make the connection with the other flight (UK to Spain), due to no fault of our own. I usually avoid Flybe like the plague because they have so many additional charges these days. When booking with Flybe you start at a really low figure and are taken down a very long path, charging you for everything that should realistically have been taken into allowance before they started wasting your time. I really do not know how they can still brand themselves as a Low Cost Airline.
Difficult website to navigate if you don't want to incur lots of unnecessary charges. When we cancelled a ticket because urgent surgery needed they charged £25 per leg to refund the taxes, leaving ~£3. Tantamount to theft I call this.
I fly with Flybe from Southampton Airport when visiting my mother in Spain, and fly her into Southampton when she comes to me.
As a disabled passenger, I always present a few additional issues for airport and airline staff - though this is never a problem at Southampton or with Flybe. My safety and comfort is assured at al times.
Flybe is always first class, even if my airfare states it's economy.
Roomy seats, excellent service, always on time, what more could you ask for?
