Recently, I flew from Dublin to Exeter with Flybe. I wanted to buy a drink on board and decided to pay in sterling, as their on board euro rate wasn't great.

I was amazed to discover that they were unable to accept my Northern Ireland note as they only took sterling or euro.

When I pointed out to the young cabin crew member that it was, in fact, a sterling note, she said they couldn't take it because they didn't have a bank account in Northern Ireland.

She said they could take Scottish and Channel Island notes, but not my Northern Bank £10 note!

How strange that Northern Ireland's self-styled low fare airline does not take Northern Ireland notes!
