I will never fly Wizz Air again. They nickel and dime you, and treat you poorly even if you pay the premium fee. As I was waiting in line in makeshift "barricade" they have put up in a metal hangar where they ushered unsuspecting passengers, I saw them mistreat elderly and disabled people, not providing any amenities to sit or...

Had a lot of doubt over whether to book this flight or not due to reading so many bad reviews. I'm a young student so didn't want to be caught out with extra payments but also wanted a cheap and easy flight so I went for it. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS AIRLINE!! Yes, the baggage policy is different...

The WORST low-cost airline I have ever travelled with. They are trying to rip you off where ever they can. We had to pay an additional fee of 45 EURO for our luggage right before boarding. This is absolutely disgusting how they put customers in this situation. Please try to AVOID Wiz Air!!

Correct service for the price. Cabin crew was very professional. Leg space typical for the plane, if you are lucky you might be transferred to the emergency exit seats which have some extra space.

I am a really patient person normally but this company managed to make me behave really bad. The way they are hidding charges behind tricks in their luggage policy is disgusting. Appart from being the only company that charges for a standard cabin bag when all other economy companies are offering that as a standard, apparently you have to buy...

Used Wizz many times in the past. It looks their service is improving. For a budget flight good enough. The attendants are polite and rather helpful.

On arrival at the check in desk we were told that we should have done it on line and as a group pay an additional fee of 140 euro or be refused boarding even though we have an email stating our seats! We had to go to the desk anyway to check the one hold luggage in so why weren't...

Never again! Dishonest communication, they are searching to find every possible way to charge you extra money (check in at least a week in advanced, non standard suitcase sizes ect.) They were impossible to reach on the phone, and unpleasant in the airport. I hope they take care of health and safety- take care of the plane better than they...

Within a year I had 7 flights within Europe and to Israel. It's a good low-cost airline. Cabin crew is nice and profesional, seats are fine and the legroom average. And in contrary to many people giving them 1/5 I actually can read and I know the measurements of cabbing bag. Yes, it's smaller than in Ryanair but this info...

Not one for posting reviews but Wiz Air simply left me no choice with their terrible customer service. A friend and I booked a one way flight with them and had nothing but issues. Firstly we were trying to check in online a day before we were due to travel but the website wasn't working. Tried everything and in the...
