“I wouldn’t use Flybe” – UK Customer
In this review, the reviewer was angry about the service of Flybe. She said “Flybe strike again. In March I booked on the first flight from Birmingham to Glasgow, I wasn’t informed about the cancellation until I reached the airport. I had stayed in a hotel the night before as it was an early flight which turned out to be unnecessary. I have booked a flight in January from Southend to Rennes, once again an early flight so I booked a hotel for the night before, my flight has been put back by nearly three hours, wasted money again! If other airlines flew the routes I want I certainly wouldn’t use Flybe!” she gave the airlines a 1/10 rating from Skytrax’s

Checking other Flybe reviews and adding up mine. Flybe has been a neutral party in the field of aviation. The British are known for being competitive and courageous, well I wonder why this trait didn’t apply to Flybe? What can you say? Feel free to leave a comment below.



  1. To all who viewed this review. Please don’t use Flybe for your future travel. I strongly don’t recommend them.
    I booked a flight with them to Boston, MA they charged me and I received an email confirmation. However as I check with my bank, they actually drafter more than the said amount. I tried to call customer service and they just keep transferring me to another person every time that I have to repeat myself over and over again.
