Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Timings

Cons: The overhead lockers are in such a position that myself and my wife bumped our heads twice against it while trying to sit in and getting up. Not nice at all. The lockers should be a be a bit wider and positioned higher. It is also a shame that these days these greedy so called budget airlines (Flybe included), do not provide complimentary bottled drinking water (may cost 50p max a bottle)- a basic necessity and do not even apologise for that. All they seem to be interested in checking the size of hand bags in the name of safety! May be animals enjoy better treatments than the passengers using the services of these so called low cost airlines!

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: N/A

Cons: 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.

Good 7.3

Pros: There were two passengers who talked non stop, the rest of the plane was quiet, but when they had finally finished chatting the two flight attendants started and didn’t stop until we got there. Shame really.. surely they could better use their time looking after customers than talking about hair styles. I remember when you used to get great service on planes, you used to press the call button and it was a delight .. these days they almost frown upon actually doing a job bar serving meals and the bare minimum. Why not set yourselves apart by being fantastic

Cons: Everything else was fine

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.

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.
