Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The food and beverage selection as always. The seat was quite pleasant as well."
Cons: "Crew forgot to serve me when doing meal service. I got up and food but found it interesting that 2 flight attendants walked right by me without saying anything. The flight was late departing and arriving."
Pros: "I appreciate having updates about the flight mid flight."
Cons: "Better management of certain unruly passengers causing a scene by taking seats which were not for them because they can’t be bothered to book two seats together during the booking process and try and take a short cut when it comes to getting on the plane."
Pros: "The food was amazing as usual. The crew's service was great!"
Cons: "Top cold inside. 35-40 % of the journey we had turbulences"
Pros: "We were able to bring our normal size backpacks as personal items even though they were certainly larger than the tiny personal item size limit."
Cons: "We had a terrible experience with getting checked in online and adding a checked bag. Numerous issues getting in touch with the company and the call centre staff was rude and unhelpful. The website is glitchy. The fee for bringing checked luggage was very high. We won't use this airline again."
Cons: "3hours late"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Pros: "Courteous crew, polite and knowledge. Just wish they wouldn't talk so fast over the tannoy! :-)"
Cons: "To find a way to enforce people to only put their baggage in the compartments above their own seats. If i choose a front-row seat, I find that other passengers have filled the compartment despite sitting nowhere near the front. Given that you pay the most money for front-row/extra leg room seats..."
Pros: "Flight arrived"
Cons: "Flight left vaguely late, air stewardess disappeared into the cockpit for 50 minutes. Hmm, I wonder what she was doing in the cockpit. Whatever she was doing she wasn’t helping the cart so I only got my food 20 mins before landing approach. Air pressure was weird too, nice American lady next to me had problems with her ears more than usual."
Pros: "The flight arrived ten minutes early at our destination."
Cons: "Extremely small and uncomfortable seats even for a small person."
Pros: "I liked how the crew on the plane worked. Very nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the tedious boarding process when we were all herded into a very confined space. Also there was a cabin baggage issue that came up that might have been avoided if the new policy would have been made more obvious during the ticket purchase process."
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Easy to book. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Would be good if there was complementary tea/coffee or water. People might then buy a snack to go with it."
Cons: "2 hrs late and we missed all our following connections as a result."
Pros: "Staff was nice and felt bad for their company’s policy."
Cons: "I was charged $45 US dollars to print my boarding pass!!! I’m used to only being able to check in 24 hours before my flight. I found out that I cannot print my boarding pass within 48 hours of my flight. I was monitarily RAPED and will be disputing these charges! Boo on you Wizz Air....aka f*ckwads."
Cons: "You have to inform the customers, that company needs you to have a visa"
Pros: "Late over two hours due to late arrival of the plane and even so they board us for nothing cauosng us to wait withot bathroom sitta etc."
Cons: "Had to stand in the sun for about 30 mins waiting to board. Had to buy a bottle of water for £2.5 why can’t they just pour a glass of water or even sell at a reasonable price."
Pros: "There wasn't any delays, perfect landing"
Cons: "Last minute boarding change & overall 1 hr delay"
Cons: "My husband was seated in row 2 and I was seated in row 29, even though there were many spare seats in blocks of two and three that we could have been sat in; then I was forced to put my carryon luggage in the hold, meaning I had to wait ages at the baggage reclaim on arrival, and was late for my air BnB check in. When I booked my flight I deliberately chose not to check any luggage, spent time planning what to take so that it would fit in a carryon bag, and measured out my liquids into small bottles so that they passed the liquids restrictions: all effort and time spent in vain due to Wizz Air. I was furious!"
Pros: "Excellent pilot"
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Plane was late and all passengers had to wait at the gate. Too many people for such a small area for that length of time."
Pros: "Purchased priority boarding for a change which was nice to be able to not have to jump in the queue quickly. Boarding was fine and the crew were very friendly and professional. The extra legroom seats over the wing provided a good extra space."
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane was not good, the carpets were fraying and the seats were old and tired. The seats were positioned too upright and there was no option to recline the seat so it was a very straight seat for 2hrs on the flight."
Pros: "Standard service , even was late come almost in time"
Cons: "Was a bit late"
Pros: "Flight was on schedule"
Cons: "No free drinking water"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I asked upon check in 2 times about my backpack, the representative said its ok 100% to take it on board. At the gate they suddenly say i need to pay now , left me no choice but to pay 60(!) poumd from a small bag!!! The gate representative, Rose is her name, seemed like just a sales person, she didnt even care what i said, and said “ its your fault and tour responsibility “. “Please pay or you wont be able to board” she said. Yes, like a bully, demanded for money, or else.... Worst service i had ever experienced in my 16 years of traveling."
Cons: "Lost our baggage, took a day to get it. Paying to sit next to your travel partner is ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew are always lovely,very professional,helpful and make us feel welcome"
Cons: "The gate number was displayed and all passengers made their way to the gate were we made to wait for about 30min before passport control took place,no information was provided as to what caused the delay;after the passport control we had to wait again for about 15min.The late take off resulted in me narrowly missing my train home"
Cons: "the fact the crew arrived to the gate after the planned boarding time causing us to stand too long on the stairways. check in via the app (using iphone 6) was a failure. i was certain i booked with extra luggage - at the check in i was told i didn't. from the reservation confirmation it is not clear what i paid for & there are no means to contact you - email, on line chat - you know the regular things every company today use to proivde customer services which is not only "give us you money". too bad this is WIZZ Air"
Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"
Pros: "was on time"
Pros: "The flight was cheap and got you where I wanted"
Cons: "Make sure you queue early if you want to take your hand luggage on board, as if you are too late in the line they will make you check it into the hold at the last minute. I guess I should have realised that by how early people started queueing and the fact that they charge for checked in luggage."
Pros: "I liked that I got to my destination in one piece."
Cons: "The plane was creaky, there was a ton of turbulence, the flight attendants even got nervous which was very disquieting."
Pros: "The staff was fine. We arrived on time."
Cons: "These discount flights from Luton are packed with obnoxious, drunken Brits going on holiday in Hungary. In future, I will fly from Heathrow. Besides, by the time one pays all the little incidental fees at WizzAir, the cost is about the same as the legacy carriers."
Cons: "I wasn't to bucharest because on the phone the laidy said to me i can travel with my driving license because my id was lost and at the gate they stop me i lost all money from ticket plus transport to airport and back you should refound my money this company is the most worst company in the world"
Cons: "Terrible service and the fact that you can't check in st the airport without paying is absurd. Absolutely terrible. Implant policy"
Pros: "Wizzair suggestion to compensate us"
Cons: "The fact that they didn't notify us regarding the cancellation of the flight, and moved us to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Before bording a man ask me to gollow him to mrsire my bag and let me pau 40 pound because its litle bit biger than he want and let others pass woth biger bag ."
Pros: "NOTHING! !!! VERY POOR wizz air!!"
Cons: "Hi. I don't understand why I have to pay £31.50 for check-in???!! Why nobody send me email with this information? ?!! I fly on the regular basis, first time I have to pay with poor wizz air!! If I know that - I will use Heathrow airport and British Airways for my flight to Riga! "Cheap flights " with wizz air : ticket -£73.00 + check-in £31.50 + coach to Luton £13.00 + coach from Stansted £13.00 + VERY POOR SERVICE! !!! NEVER EVER !!! My last time! !!! I will say to ALL my friends and posted in Facebook, Twitter and Instagramm! !! It's - ROBBERY!!!!!"
Pros: "Facilities are terrible! It was like stepping back in time! To use this as a stopover, is a poor decision because this airport does NOT meet the brief and does NOT warrant being used for passengers. I’ve been very polite here, I have more choice words I could use"
Cons: "Nothing! To learn that Wizz Air ‘allowed’ cabin size is so tiny was really shocking! With All the other budget airlines, easyJet, Monarch & even Ryanair my cabin would’ve been fine. This is the same hand luggage I’ve been using using for many years."
Pros: "Everyone was really friendly and accommodating to my needs"
Cons: "40 minutes late taking off - sitting on the plane"
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "My bag was 6cm too big, so they charged me at the airport. After checking their website, the airport overcharged me, and the gestapo who was checking had less customer service manners than my old French teacher, she was a...!"
Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"
Pros: "Nice clean plane, friendly airline staff (as friendly as they get, we all know how they have that teflon attitude), OK food, I sat between 2 Bulgarian passengers which were very well behaved, one screaming baby nearby (as there always is) and no-one playing football with the back of my seat all the flight (you know who you are - hope someone does it to you), and no-one fidgeting all flight so all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Bit slow in opening the gate for people to get on. They expect to cram you like sardines on a hot staircase with no where to go when there is other people being checked in to board behind you, really stupid and possibly sadistic."
Pros: "Cost was ok but you get into the trap where every turn is a cost option. The cost can climb to the point where other scheduled flights compete."
Cons: "The web site is laborious. Checking in was 48hrs prior and frankly you should be able to choose what remaining seats are available as a no cost option. You can choose prior to the 48hrs at cost (i was never given option on a 3rd party site when i booked!) Checking in should be longer than 3 hrs! Because if you book a exec lounge which is air side you lose 1.5 hrs as a minimum in the process of checking in luggage and security checks. Lose .5 hr+ to go to gate and you get 1hr only when you pay for 3 hrs! Where is the sense in that? Its miss-selling at its worst as everyone is complicit. Flight left 20min late for no apparent reason Seats are a bit stone age and hard although only a short flight my ar*e went to sleep before I could"
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Pros: "I like the bubbly upbeat attitude of the flight attendants interacting excellently in English and other languages and also how they dealt with an angry passenger."
Pros: "Brand new planes - on board crew was pleasant and the flights were smooth and on time."
Cons: "Ridiculous size restrictions on carry-on. If you can pack your clothes in a wallet, then you should be able to carry on at no cost. Only the smallest of bags will meet the "free" requirement. Website is awful to attempt to online check in. Crazy that they charge for check in at the airport if you cannot get their site to work. Customer service phone call also costs a quid a minute. It's almost as if they are proud that they screw you if you encounter any difficulty or you've made a mistake in the complicated boarding pass emailing procedure."
Pros: "Nothing at all... They were unfriendly and I missed my flight because of them. Lot money and time is gone"
Cons: "How they organized everything in this day!!!! 4th of July 2017 TERRIBLY Terrible"
Pros: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"
Cons: "Left late"
Pros: "Transparent fare, no frills and punctual."
Cons: "Hideous seats - seat backs don't decline which, combined with minimal legroom (even in "premium" section"), makes for a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "flight late so crew dismissive wanting to get people on board, during flight was ok"
Cons: "smile it helps"
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "I had to buy a plus ticket for my luggage, but I bought a priority before. I don’t like it."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly both ground and cabin. Flight left a little late but all in all it was a good service. I certainly wouldn't complain."
Cons: "I didn't particularly like the constant upsale(online)but then it is a budget airline, so this is to be expected these days"
Cons: "Lovely friendly staff, perfect flight, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Very cramped Carry bag allowance too small"
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Cons: "Avoid walking in the rain to get to the plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "Helpful, friendly crew"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "For a Ryanair flight, this was perfect! New aircraft with Sky Interior, the crew were cheerful and had something from the catalogue I requested but couldn't find on previous flights, we arrived early in Oslo and deboarded within minutes! Absolutely no complaints from me for this one."
Cons: "This is my first time using Ryan Air. I have a very good experience."
Cons: "Never made the flight due to the previous flight being very late Eventhou that Norwegian sir that I will never use again lied about delay time , they said 50 min and ended up being 3 hours"
Pros: "Pilot gave us a nice smooth flight even though there was a storm, brilliant take off and landing!"
Cons: "It was terrible that hand luggage had to be paid for"
Pros: "Like? Nothing! Extortion at its best. Will not recommend. Will never fly with them again. Shame on you Jaysk for supporting them."
Cons: "If their system worked and I could have checked in online instead of being charged an extra $170 something dollars at the gate. Oh and them not charging me another $100 for my luggage the second flight that I swear I paid for...terrible."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "It was far too hot making some of us feel dizzy & sick"
Pros: "Cheerful staff."
Cons: "Being allocated when we booked seats apart to make us pay £11 to sit together. All we can take from this is that it was another money grabbing exercise by Ryanair as there were plenty of empty seats available when we boarded!"
Pros: "The cost was the big plus on this flight."
Pros: "Price and punctually."
Cons: "As mentioned being separated by the “ random computer choice of seats. We were put rows apart both with empty seats either side of us, we fly lots and only Ryanair and Jet2 do this."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and calm. The crew was very professional."
Cons: "I did not know in advance about the checked baggage charge. The web site was not clear in this regard. The cost to pay this charge at the Rome Airport was double the price of doing it in advance. This also created a lot of unnecessary stress. We barely made the connection even though we had two and a half hours between arriving in Rome and the departure of the Ryanair flight. Also, there was a delay after boarding of almost one hour."
Pros: "On time fly gut and prompt baggage handling"
Cons: "The person at the gate during the boarding was rude and unethical. I was asked to place the suitcase in the special cage to measure it and despite the fact that it fit the lady asked me to send it as cargo and pay. I had to call a supervisor to show him it fits. Even so the lady argued about. I have taken a picture and threaten to sue the company for harassment and unfair business practice. Jack Dauber"
Pros: "The crew was very warm and the seats had great room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment."
Cons: "Seats doesnt recline Nobody from the company to ask situation We los all conections and paids hotels"
Pros: "Staff at gate very friendly and efficient. Staff on flight very pleasant and professional. Lovely flight no problems."
Pros: "I like the legroom that I seem to find out your flights. I am tall and normally feel very uncomfortable while flying but the legroom on the 3 Ryanair flights I have taken in the past few weeks was very good. Thanks Julian"
Cons: "I don't like the carry on options. I would like to be able to take a normal carry on and also a computer bag. The size of the second bag is much smaller than a computer bag. If you updated this for the express boarding people I feel you would get many more who would pay the extra money to have that option. Making another option costing more money to take a computer bag would be a poor idea as some of your actions are already seem as money grabbing. Thanks Julian"
Pros: "We got there on time,"
Cons: "- Surliness of staff especially at the gate: some passengers were queuing for the wrong flight and gate staff did very little to ensure that the risk of this was highlighted to others. Consequently when boarding some people were turned away as they should have been elsewhere - Unecessary split seats - New cabin baggage rules - caused delay at the gate and could have been avoided by asking people to check in the excess earlier as other airlines do."
Pros: "Price and punctuality"
Cons: "Families have to pay extra to sit together. Children should automatically be seated with their parents. Basic safeguarding standards should be priority, not making more money out of necessity."
Cons: "Automatically being allocated seats apart from each other"
Pros: "Staff tried hard in view of the delay"
Cons: "Food was lukewarm, didnt like the self check in at the airport for checked in bags"
Pros: "The quick boarding to take off"
Cons: "Making you pay extra to sit with your fellow travelers Making you pay a stupid amount to change the name, even though it was weeks before the flight"
Pros: "Flight on time, very polite crew and the average experience you expect from Ryanair."
Cons: "The whole luggage handling is a nightmare. If you fly with just one luggage, be prepared to have to take everything you care from it and hold it close to your chest, as Ryanair will probably try to check your luggage."
Pros: "Crew were tactful but effective in dealing with stags and hens on board"
Cons: "Noise level due to boisterous passengers Not Ryanair's fault Absurdly high cost of checked luggage"
Pros: "Good space and good price"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Not many things, I have got to the destination in one piece"
Cons: "Almost everything releated to the flight from point A to point B was horrible. This was the first and last time I have ever flight with ryanair. People need to know how poor the airline is, and the airline needs yo improve in almost every aspect related"
Cons: "Due to a malfunction on our previous flight's plane which resulted in a 3hr delay, we missed our connection flight on RyanAir. They didn't accommodate us at all and we had to purchase a whole new flight, that departed 10hrs later but couldn't check in for 8 hours to get past security. So we had to just hang out at Athens Airport for 8hrs with all our luggage and minimal services after traveling for 15hrs."
Pros: "Got me to Rome."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Had us standing in line for an extra 45 minutes. In adequate seating in the airport. The seats on the plane are extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The baggage didn't take forever like arrival in Athens did"
Cons: "Flight took off and landed late"
Pros: "Counter agent was excellent, friendly and professional, she even helped us get our carry-on properly assigned to go on the plane when the Nazi-like fellow, Ali, at the terminal insisted that unless it fit in that grossly undersized test frame the airlines like to use, we would have to pay an additional 35€, to get it checked. Our lovely counter agent came to our aid and spoke sense to Ali with a verbal slap about the head-free entertainment-, helping to put some semblance of joy into the experience that is flying Ryanair. If I have a choice, Ryanair would never be it. Crew was lovely allowing my wife and I to sit together after not being able to do so online without more stupid fees."
Cons: "See diatribe above. If you can discern what to do better from above, excellent, if not, it matters not as I will make it my personal mission to inform all and sundry about the horrors of Ryanair travel. Your airline makes Sleazy Jet seem like top shelf."
Cons: "At check in there was little information posted. The check in folks made my in-laws check two bags that, while technically a bit larger than the frame, were clearly small enough for the overhead-- many other passengers cleared check in with bags of equal or greater size."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "cramped seat"
Cons: "1 hour delay. To low on fuel."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and great at handling requests."
Cons: "No entertainment provided, boarding took quite a while and don't like the extra add-ons pre-flight. The flight started off quite cheap but with all the other add ons to make it an easier trip, it seemed unfair."
Pros: "Price of the flight, and its scheduled departure time."
Cons: "45 mints delayed on our departure from London Stansted, no entertainment on board, constantly interrumpting our relax/sleep time with sales, promotions and "lottery prices"."
Cons: "Typical indifference at Lisbon where we were sent to the gate at expected time but there was no plane - it left 40 mins late. So we left an area with seating, toilets etc and stood for 90 mins waiting to board. They KNEW there was no plane - we saw it arrive AFTER our supposed takeoff time. They'll blame the airport info but it must be sorted. Everywhere, every time we come last. No more flying for us."
Pros: "If you like cheep, this is the flight for you!"
Cons: "If you dislike late flights, last-minute extra charges (never mentioned before, despite asking) at check-in, and rude staff wherever you are... this is the airline for you!!"
Pros: "5 minute early arrival"
Cons: "We stood 10 minutes outside in the freezing cold before boarding."
Cons: "Rowdy passengers were allowed to remain on the flight without being told by staff to quieten down. This was the most disappointing aspect of the flight."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. No issues whilst on the plane."
Cons: "The website gives option for e-bording passes but the front desk wouldn't allow them. We had to use a printer/pay for internet to get our boarding passes printed. Then they didn't even use the ones we printed off. They printed off their own."
