Pros: Very strict and inconsistent with carry on bags. Paid £160 for luggage. Missed connecting flight because they were slow to disembark us off first flight. Said we would make it and then left without us. Had to go through security again and also couldn’t find luggage.

Cons: All of the above. Don’t want to fly with Flybe again. Shocking.

Pros: Help on my 1st ever flight at Manchester to Newquay was perfect and such kind people. Newquay departure and arrivals was also excellent. But pick up from Arrivals being a disabled person was a total nightmare and I really don't want to experience that ever again.

Cons: Disabled travellers should have a pick up area close to arrivals door were we come out. I had no idea where I was going there was no help given here to me and even my taxi driver could not find me. He sed it was always awful at arrivals. This spoilt an otherwise perfect trip.

Cons: Flybe is so far away from connecting flights in LHR - it took 20-30 minutes to get from their terminal 2 to international terminal 5. The check-in staff charged us 40+ pounds each bag on our return flight despite both bags being carried on board on outbound flight. Added $100+ to our flight cost.

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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
