I visited Birmingham last autumn. Birmingham was one city I had never been to, just never found a cheap airfare ticket for. This time, I stumbled upon the Flybe airline and its online ticket portal and gave it a try. The price of a return ticket to Birmingham from Milan was a great bargain. I was pleasantly surprised that despite a very cheap airfare ticket, the service Flybe provided on board was great. We flew to Birmingham with Southwest Airlines. Since the ticket was not expensive, we decided to upgrade for the first class at the airport. During the check-in, I got a great seat by the window before I printed the ticket. Birmingham is an amazing place and I would love to visit it again if I find a reasonable ticket with Flybe.
I have already flow with Flybe on many occasions. I always book with Flybe when flying from Milan to Hannover, as this route is not covered by many other airlines and I need to make a business trip to Hannover quite often. Last year, I opted for the Avios frequent-flyer programme which allows me to use my miles to purchase ticket with better ticket prices and gives me other advantages on board Flybe airplanes. On my last trip to Hannover, I used the collected miles to book a hotel as well.
