Mediocre 2.0

Pros: The crew and the security people were very nice

Cons: Flybe’s app wouldn’t work on my phone, so I couldn’t pre-pay my checked bag. To avoid paying £40, they helped me squish it into the compartment and allowed me to take it on board. However, that meant I had to carry it all around the airport (no carts) and lost half of my toiletries. Frustrating!

Pros: Everything went smoothly, from check-in right through to bag collection, & we landed nice & early, which was much appreciated on a late night flight.

Cons: I could have used a little extra elbow room, as the guy sitting next to me had big arms which took up the entire arm of the seat between us. The seat itself was quite comfy, though.

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.
