I think standing in line for so long before boarding is ridiculous. Also, according to the gate staff my husbands bag ,which was smaller than mine, required a baggage fee as did mine. €110! On the return flight my husband was able to get his bag through and it fit just fine. He noticed mine would have fit as well. But another €55 for mine. Not much of a bargain.

The fact it was on time and kept us informed of any issues that would arise. Amazed to see the captain pushing off quickly by urging people to hurry up to avoid missing our take off slot. Set up to be on time coming back. Kudos!

A slight delay outbound to Amsterdam where it involves waiting at the gate. Never good with any flight.

Though my connecting flight left early, forcing me to wait in the airport for several hours for the next connection into Edinburgh, the flight itself was good and the cabin crew were very accommodating. Again, the flight wasn't terribly full which was nice.

There simply was not enough time to make my connecting flight in Manchester. I went straight from my first flight into Manchester to the mandatory security checkpoint (why is there a securitry checkpoint between connecting flights? Flybe should take note of this when scheduling flights with layovers...) and proceeded to the gate for my next flight to Edinburgh. Security had to go through my bags and customs asked me several questions. These are both things that should be accounted for when flybe lists flights with a connection through Manchester, as these things can happen to any traveler any day. When I arrived at the departure gate 10 minutes prior to departure, the plane was already gone. The other flybe gate agents sent me back and forth to one another, obviously not wanting to deal with me ("go check with the person at gate 18 ....go check with the person at gate 20", back and forth), until I finally had to exit the secure area and check in at the front desk again. The agent there was somewhat rude and fairly inattentive as she asked me to wait while she "did her banking". I was able to get on the next flight to Edinburgh several hours later. In the end I lost half a days time in Edinburgh, which is a lot when you're in a city for less than 3 days.

I was unable to make my flights. Flybe charged 25GBP per flight to refund the tax. With 55GBP, this excessive charge for 2 minutes or changes ensured that I would never book a FLYBe flight again.

Ross the air crew was fantastic and after I spilt a drink he came to my aid immediately with tissues etc both cabin crew members were both professional and excellent with the passengers, they definitely are doing an excellent job and a credit to Flybe

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.
