Effectively replaced Air France

Review of Lew about the flight Flybe AF1898 between Paris Charles De Gaulle and Manchester on 27/09/2014 in Economy
Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

I took a Flybe flight between Paris CDG and Manchester, replacing another flight that was during an Air France strike, and I didn't regret it. It was a small plane (Embraer 175) but pretty recent. I also had enough space for my legs, despite being tall, but having an aisle seat probably helped also.
When it comes to onboard service, it has to be mentioned that the staff does not speak French, even on flights in partnership with AF (which was the case with my flight). The menu offered is mostly snacks, and if you just want some coffee (Starbucks), that's no problem.
The biggest negative point, which nevertheless turned out well and can be explained by the fact that the plane was filled to the maximum (because of the strike), is that the carry-on luggage had to be checked, which was stressful. There was some more stress when the luggage arrived on the carousel, but in the end there was no damage to complain about.
Apart from that, the trip went off without a hitch, and even the turbulence they announced was very limited.
