Flybe's flight prices don't quite add up
Booking flights with Flybe today? You might want to have a calculator handy, because theirs is apparently broken. An avid Bitterwallet reader has emailed to highlight the discrepancy on a particular flight booking, which we reproduced:
Flybe are slapping an extra 54p on the price without explaining why, and according to our reader this isn't the only flight affected. On the off-chance it was a problem with the flight selection page, we progressed with the booking:
Now this makes even less sense. Not only do the totals still not add up, but now even the error is inconsistent (the double of the baggage price is because Flybe seemingly discount a single bag one way, so it costs more for the return flight).
We're only talking about a small discrepancy, but the fact is it's your money - not theirs. Most of us would probably never notice or even care to check the maths, unless the error was so large the total was several pounds out. Do you intuitively trust online checkouts, or do you always do the sums yourself regardless?
