Cheap but short on baggage

It was my first flight with Wizz. Hopefully, for that flight, we got the newest A321 in the fleet... read more

As a low-cost airline, Wizz Air toke whatever effort it needs to reduce the cost. For example, a remote brooding gate, tiny legroom (the smallest I have ever encountered), no in-flight entertainment etc. They even charge a fee for airport check-in while didn't provide any self check-in kiosk. Over 180 seats were squeezed in the A320 plane I flew. Expect...

It was my first flight with Wizz. Hopefully, for that flight, we got the newest A321 in the fleet, so you could smell the new air in the aircraft. :-) Wizz has quite cheap prices, especially if you book your travel when they have some discount (e.g. 20%). The crew is friendly, the plane is clean and modern. One disadvantage...

As students it was important that the flights were cheap so we were relying on this deal and thought it was great at first.. we then received a phone call informing us that this price had gone up by a...

I had to pay an extra 41€ at boarding on the flight back because my luggage was too big... I just didn't pack it very well being on a hurry. Disappointed.

I've bought a ticket online, payed for it by bank transfer in 12 hours and they haven't sent me the ticket or notify me about anything going wrong with the payment. I've only realised they haven't sent the ticket when I wanted to d the online check in. I've called them from my mobile (£40 charge) and the lady said...

Money which is paid are valued for compromising service which is received. Both parties understand value for partnership for some flights , when is used low cost airlines.

I'm planning a trip to travel with a 6 month old baby to Poland this summer. Found what looked like a great deal for myself and my baby on the Wizz Air web site, so started to make the necessary travel arrangements. On the first screen of Wizz Air's web page I stated I want to fly with an infant,...
