Cons: "I did not like going to the long stay carpark north terminal it adds quite a few additional minutes on my journey, I usually use the LtP in south terminal .

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The plane was 2Hrs late but this happens sometimes. Got there eventually all safe and sound"
Cons: "Having fully boarded the plane, and with no prior indication at all, it was then announced that we wouldn't be leaving for another 2 1/2 hours because of an air traffic control strike in Italy. Instead of allowing us to stay in the terminal, we sat in tiny seats for longer than the flight itself was scheduled to be, with no offer of any refreshments. The pilot who made the announcement made it seem like a minor inconvenience and got the times wrong twice. Of course the strike isn't their fault but their handling of it couldn't have been worse."
Cons: "The space between the seats are to small"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "crew and boarding was nice"

Cons: "I was happy with everything"
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: "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."
Cons: "You have to inform the customers, that company needs you to have a visa"
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
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"
Pros: "Cheap flights, priority boarding."
Cons: "No meal included, no entertainment provided"
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!"
Cons: "Very long queues at boating in Charleroi airport"
Pros: "The staff - friendly, polite,, helpful and a nice uniform! No silly uncomfortable and unsuitable as in some airlines. Reasonably clean. Good price for a glass of wine and pac of dry fruit."
Cons: "Unable to understand tanoi messages - mumbling & too fast. Could not make out most of what staff said including why there was an hour's delay and safety procedures. If i were to bring an oversized and too heavy handluggage on board no doubt I wouldn't get away with it ! However the number of large and heavy bags passengers brought on board last night was ridiculous . It was a real struggle for people to find lockers for.their bags. Some people had quite a few. Delays take off and creates unnecessary chaos. Couldn't understand why I had to pay to check in online, obviously missed that when bookrd. Although I recall reading that it will cost if you check in the airport- so most likely my error. No facility or button to print boarding pass once checked in. No contact us button - I would like to change seat I booked for return but cannot see how to do this on line."
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"
Pros: "grea air line always on time staff are friendly"
Pros: "Super easy online check-in, comfortable plane, lovely crew"

Pros: "was on time"
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: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a 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"
Cons: "As Usual always late, left us sitting in a bus on the tarmac for ages in30 deg heat. awful. will never use again"
Cons: "Crampt seats, mob to board the plane, hour delay with no reason given."
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"
Pros: "No food or entertainment on this flight,"
Cons: "I found the luggage allowance confusing"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
Pros: "The weather was nice."
Cons: "The boarding was announced 30 minutes before the beginning of the procedure. All the passengers were standing in the queue, without any possibilities to sit down. At Luton there is no connection among the announcements and the actual status of the boarding of a particular plane."
Cons: "Long wait in line to get on the airplane, No bathroom availability!"
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: "Nice new plane and caught up time even though it was late leaving left Luton late"
Cons: "Left late"
Cons: "TERRIBLE HORRIBLE SUCK"
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."
Cons: "Randomly picked for paying a carry on fee. Misleading, expensive, and the feeling of being extorted. I will push for a refund."
Pros: "Flight empty, crew good."
Pros: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "I requested for assistance, for my little brother ( 1st time in Uk) Now this days they don’t got one because of Covid 19"
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew."
Pros: "Actually getting on board!"
Cons: "The fact that something was clearly wrong before we started to go outside and when it was raining we were left outside with no apology at all and when we boarded the communication/apologies were scant"
Pros: "getting off"
Cons: "filthy plane, confused staff, cattle truck class. I bet people got comfier rides to aushvits. if only there were national carrier flying my route"
Cons: "Plane was late as most Ryanair flights in the afternoon are expected to be."
Cons: "My wife was not allowed to board the flight. because her passport expires in april, we was told by ryanair in a phone call that this would not be a problem,then when she tried to board she was refused. thanks ryanair you cost us a lot of money and caused a lot of stress. you just lost another customer. why not make it clear that a person needs 90 days on their passport if you are going to enforce these purile rules."
Pros: "It all went smoothky"
Cons: "Delayed an hour."
Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "Waiting in hallway and then tarmac to board."
Pros: "Nice peeps"
Cons: "Obnoxious passenger on board"
Pros: "Staffs are very helpful."
Cons: "Should get some drink at least some water."
Pros: "Airport OK. Efficient service. On time arrival."
Cons: "Gate area bit narrow and clumsy. Walk to plane. Deposit your own bag on large trolley outside plane due to opportunistic charging policy of RyanAir. Seat basic no recline. No seat pockets. No wifi. Still paying £200 return.."
Pros: "Yes on time."
Pros: "Fair service for the amount spent"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "we did not receive the boading check in pass even we did an online check in and end up we have to pay 55pounds extra"
Cons: "Bad pilots, lending very harch. Bording paniking"
Pros: "All is well"
Cons: "More destination"
Pros: "Upright seats give more legroom"
Cons: "Queue, queue, queue Hugely confused luggage allowances - unclear even on boarding pass - urgently need overhaul and clarification"
Cons: "Slowly boarding, gate is cold, no seats, plane was in late 1,5 hour."
Pros: "Flight to Budapest from Stansted airport took off on time and landed 40 minutes early. The flight home was on schedule and I had an aisle seat both ways, couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Due to the high volume of passengers on the flight we had to put our luggage in the hold (for free) in both directions which caused a minor delay in our onward journey but nothing significant."
Pros: "The price. Period"
Cons: "Legroom non-existent. Sardines have more room in their can."
Pros: "Price is good"
Cons: "Called to gate only to then have to wait over an hour before boarding. No info given just stood there like lemons. Also they do their upmost to make you pay to sit next to each other! I know they are trying to make as much profit as poss but just annoying."
Cons: "Delayed, no info, bad service on board"
Pros: "Very unorganized and discretion about what was a carry on bag differed. I was charged an extrodinary fee while others did not."
Pros: "Still have not left London"
Pros: "legs space"
Cons: "We stood in line for almost 40 minutes with no signs or help from anyone. Finally got to the desk and we were told we Needed to have boarding passes so we needed tonsee customer service. Stood in line for 30 minutes to have the customer service guy charge us to print out boarding passes and that we hadn't checked in. Then sent us back to check boarding passes only to find out we didn't pay for checked luggage. All in all, we arrived 2 hours early only to pay twice as much as our original tickets and barely make our flight. Do your selves a favor and pay the more expensive route, because the cheap tickets were not even remotely worth the hassle."
Pros: "Boarding was reasonably slick. Staff were very polite and helpful. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Disembarking was aWful. Flight was packed and the buses from landing site to airport entry were rammed. At least 6 passengers left standing outside the bus for a good 10 minutes with indecisive ground crew pacing, staring and disappearing with no solution until a senior member arrived and squeezed people into the driver's cabin. Seat space is pretty tight. Not the most comfortable. Not a fan of trekking to Stanstead but it was earliest flight so no option but Ryanair"
Cons: "Everyone, EVERYTHING, horrible customer service!!!"
Pros: "Just everything was so easy and straight forward. No issues and no hassles"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about the experience"
Cons: "Customer services aren't very helpful have a figure it out attitude. Don't tell you proper information. Not even employees to with customer demand. I will never ride with again!"
Cons: "The whole experience. Everyone we interacted with was just not nice or appreciative."
Pros: "The ride wasn't bumpy, The pilot was careful and the weather was nice."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Unaware you were not allowed to take coffee on the jet bridge let alone the plane. I guess so you will buy theirs? Wish I had not spent 4 pounds on a coffee they confiscated."
Cons: "I did not like not knowing which gate was being used until 45 minutes prior to boarding. People who are regulars were able to queue up before those of us who did not know where we were heading. The baggage information is confusing; you can not be sure whether or not your bag will get on without a charge, but then when you get to the airport, the charge is greater than it would have been if you had more consisten info to start."
Pros: "Everything, price, knowledge, clean planes, great customer service"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was not part of the deal. Fine with me."
Cons: "Everything was fine. 15 minute early arrival."
