Seats are comfortable, head rest is adjustable, good leg room, nice entertainment selection and no extra charge for adult beverages!

When we arrived at London Heathrow, there was no gait, no stairs, and no buses to transport passengers to the terminal. We were stuck on the plane for an hour waiting. The crew was helpful in keeping everyone informed and let us know they called the airport staff multiple times for the stairs/buses to get us off and those with connections (me) going. The crew was frustrated too.

2 1/2 delay with no information to travelers. We were told Gate A then at the last minute (after a couple of hours) it was switched to Gate C. We had to take a transport to new gate and were afraid we would miss flight as the original flight time was still posted. There was no updated flight info anywhere. Very stressful after what was already a long wait.

The few staff that were working at 05.30 did their best to cope with no electronic booths.

There was checkin system upgrade that meant there were no electronic check-in. Flybe knew there would be long queues but did not lay on extra staff to deal with it. Not good management.

The Flybe counter staff at the Edinburgh airport were not very helpful when we missed the flight (which was entirely our fault). They could have been more helpful in assessing our options to get to Belfast after we missed the flight. Another airline counter was much more helpful, we will check their flights first the next time.

When we went to check in, a ticket agent named David was amazing! We had missed a flight at a different airport and were really bummed out. We told David a short version of the story and how we were going to Edinburgh and how we lost an entire day of travel. David told us about a bunch of his favorite things to do and wrote them down for us. He was so friendly and helpful it really helped us get excited about our trip again. The other crew seemed nice, but we didn’t have many other interactions) it was a VERY quick flight (also nice). They also offered food and beverage even though the flight was short, which we didn’t want anything, but liked that they did.

This is more on the airport maybe, but the flight was delayed so the times kept changing and we didn’t have any gate yet, it made it hard to relax. Then our gate was announced a few minutes late and we had to hussele to get there since we only had about 15-20 minutes before final boarding.

Operating a small jet with 2x2 row seats - therefore speedy boarding. Nice calm flight - the price was right - yet it is not a 'low budget' airline and both the crew and the passengers reflected this.

I encountered no problems on this flight.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
