Has anyone ever flown We were planning a trip to Europe and I was wondering how everything is on their flights. They seemed like a respectably airline when I was at Belfast City Airport.

I have flown many times but only between Gatwick and Belfast City. It is certainly a respectable airline and cabin service is as good as any other major carrier. Rather limited in-flight catering but that is probably because it is only a short hop across to Belfast. Given the choice or any other LCC, would be my preferred choice. Be very interested to see your trip report on the forum if you do fly

Yeah, BHX to Salzburg on a Dash8-400. Smooth flights, took over 2hrs. Service good but the aircraft seemed very basic inside compared to ther Dash 8's I have flown on but overall they were good.

I flew EDI-BHX-EDI with them last month.
They were fine, the seats in the Q400 I found to be very comfortable with plenty legroom, more than what the like of easyJet offer.
One thing I noted was that the Q400s had no window blinds.

Flew them from Southhampton to Dublin and back last year. Bae146, good service, nice people.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

I flew them BHX-EDI on a Dash-8, the aircraft was 2 days old so very nice inside. My experience with them was very pleasent, very nice crew ...

I've flown with them several times on the LGW-GCI route and I have to say that I think they're a really nice airline. The cabin crew are always friendly and I love the 146's that they fly on that route - love the way those little four-holers leap off the runway into the air! The cabin was comfortable too - just the right amount of legroom for me, and I'm 6'2".

My only gripe would be that on one flight LGW-GCI it seemed that everything I tried to buy from the menu wasn't available, but on a 35 minute flight it wasn't too much of a problem.
