Cons: "check in takes 30 minutes since my visa was in old passport"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything. Mediocre all round."

Pros: "Seat and crew were amazing but obviously struggled to be proud and confident of their job, can’t blame them if the company cuts expenses all over."
Cons: "When you fly business class, you expect a different product than economy, because you pay almost double the price. All we got is the same lousy sandwich as in economy, neither are alcoholic or hot beverages available due to ‘shortage of staff’ as the crew announces. A flight far behind LH standards."
Cons: "On tome flight"
Pros: "Nothing at all, whole experience was incredibly stressful"
Cons: "The transfer was awful. Long line for the frankly bizarre security check despite never leaving the terminal, incredibly rude staff at Frankfurt airport, all wearing may we help badges, so kind of answered their own question. Check in staff once we had sprinted th length of the terminal very rude"

No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "The ground staff in Heathrow was helpful. They happily swapped me onto an earlier flight to Munich after I spotted delays out of Munich, allowing me ample time to connect in Munich airport"

Cons: "Slim seats very uncomfortable and legroom too little"
Pros: "Easy check-in and helpful staff. I would absolutely fly with Lufthansa again"
Cons: "The plane lands a considerable distance from the airport, you walk across the tarmac in the rain to a bus, and then the bus ride is almost 15 minutes. I expect Lufthansa to have a better berth at Frankfurt."
Pros: "Free refreshments. Funny cabin crew!"
Cons: "There was very confusing and contradictory information on what you can take with you on top of your cabin luggage. e.g. Can you or can you not take a small shoulder bag with you."

Cons: "Maybe not BA fault but immigration wait at jfk was 11/2 hours!"

Pros: "Pilot communication"
Cons: "Free snacks & drinks"

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Bag travelled free."
Cons: "No legroom for tall people. Stuffy cabin."

Cons: "Plane delayed by one and a half hours due to a bit of rain!"

Cons: "Many cancellations and airline lost my luggage"
Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. On time departure"
Cons: "Could not check in online or via app due to system issues"
Pros: "The captain and first officer were extremely courteous and professional .

When we eventually changed planes and moved to another gate to board it all went without a hitch."
Pros: "The flight was before time on arrival"
Cons: "The chair in front of mine was broken or worn out so that it declined alarmingly far. It felt like the gentleman in front me had his head in my lap. My tray table was also broken so that it listed dangerously and I had to prop it on my arm rest."
Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."

Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Cons: "The time it takes for a full 777 aircraft to empty is excessive. Airlines must think outside the box and view the experience from the customers' perspective to create two or more points of exit."
Cons: "All snacks and drinks were for purchase. Not even free water!"
Pros: "everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Not enough choices for movies or tv shows."
Cons: "It was a 3 hour overnight flight and the crew went up and down the aisles selling things and waking everyone up. Seemed like selling duty frees was more important to the airline than passengers having a pleasant flight."

Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"
Pros: "Actual room in coach"
Cons: "Corination chicken"
Cons: "Everything important was missing. Poor poor."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make it to NY. Very upset about this because I have no idea when it will be delivered!"
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Pros: "Bording was quick"
Cons: "Crew was serious, absolutely not happy to smile Genuine smile is really appreciated whenmeeting custimers. Food trolley/ drinks came to customers and before we could react it was gone. When we asked them back they were not very happy looking . Seats we not comfortable."
Pros: "There was nothing that stood out. It was just as all other airlines."

Pros: "Nothing they cancelled flights"

Cons: "they must work on quality and price"
Pros: "On time and complimentary drink"
Cons: "The plane was delayed 1 hour waiting for a crew member to show up. This caused me to miss my flight to the US at DeGaulle"
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "All flights on time"
Pros: "The staff was kind and helpful. The business class was good and the updrafts was really worth it"
Cons: "Entertainment was poor ."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. People/staff was not that friendly. I considered switching flight times, but the options were limited and it would have required me to purchase a new ticket. The fair was relatively inexpensive, but did not include checked bag and in the end was more expensive than other carrier options."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight conditions; height and timing updates. Absence of screens, lack of technology. Not clear English announcements. Ignorance and arrogant attitude of hostess, I can tell because I'm veiled muslim. Change of gate with no notification or announcement. Not comfortable flight."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding started 20 minuets late"
Pros: "The flight itself from NYC was great, the connection flight was great."
Cons: "The worst boarding process I ever seen! The airport people and crew didn’t tell people what’s going on, there was a uhh delay. Big lines of people just standing and waiting. The flight took off 45 min late!!"
Cons: "Because the flight was one hour and a half late"
Cons: "Initial flight from London to Rome left late, so missed connecting flight to Johannesburg. Although we were put up in a hotel and got a flight next day, missed another connecting flight, which was with another flight company and had to pay again to get another flight. No apology from the airline for the inconvenience this caused. The travel to South Africa was for an emergency and ended up getting there two days later."
Pros: "The fact that I had more legroom than I expected was surprising."
Cons: "The staff were super rude, forgot my food TWICE. Boarding took ages, and once inside the plane, they took a long time to get on the runway. Food was terrible, the bread was hard as rock. IFE has some relatively new films, but the screen is very small. The screen has terrible quality, and honestly makes the flight excruciatingly boring if you don’t have other sources of entertainment."
Cons: "Seats were packed with no room for feet"
Pros: "nothing special"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice. Great service."
Cons: "They left us inside the plane for more than 30 minutes waiting to depart. Then when we were close to FRA they tell us they cannot areive because of the weather and got more delayed. When we finally get to FRA, there’s no machinery to get us out of the plane because it was broken. We had to wait for them to find some stairs and then take a shuttle while raining to the airport inside."
Cons: "Alitalia and SkyTeam still can't figure out how to check luggage through on separately ticketed flights, even if both flights are the same airline."
Cons: "horrible seat ergonomic"
Pros: "Being able to chose my seats for free with the Millemiglia programme. The legroom was not bad."
Cons: "No hot drinks or food available to purchase inflight. The toilets were dirty and smelly."
Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being served a hot drink inflight. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."
Pros: "The easy transfer from incoming London flight to the connecting flight to Tirana without leaving the airside area of the terminal"
Cons: "Not being able to purchase any food, wine or hot drinks on board. It doesn't seem such a difficult or costly service and most other airlines appear to manage it."
Cons: "My seats were changed to the rear end of the plane, not even a sandwich for snack.i had to empty my carry on luggage to 9kg ."
Pros: "Confortable space, great food taste,"
Cons: "When we asked for the late food service, they told us they did not have any more left. We ask them to look for anything left and after hour the food still not arrived."
Pros: "Operazioni di imbarco veloci ed ordinate"
Cons: "Sito web non funzionante, imposibile effettuate il check in e acquistare il bagaglio online con conseguenti extra tasse aeroportuali. Ovviamente nessun assistenza da Alitalia."
Pros: "The Crew was really helpful with baby, bringing bassinet (that I reserved prior to the trip) and letting me boarding preferentially."
Cons: "Probably not the company fault, but my stroller was a little damaged when I got it at my destination."
Pros: "The lady at the check in counter was super nice, I was a few kilos over and she didn’t charge me extra"
Cons: "The plane looked old and dirty"
Pros: "A cancelled flight, bankruptcy, no refund, no one answered through phone."
Pros: "Boarding was on time for all my flights."
Cons: "KLM switched online check in to Alitalia literally right at checking time. It was extremely unnerving, and required much more time, as I did not have an Alitalia account."
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "- Rude crew - Uncomfortable seats - Broken seats - Missed our order for Vegan meals"
Cons: "I.m 6'2 and it was impossibly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Plane in good condition with more than average roominess in economy class with accommodating crew, decent food, and entertainment."
Cons: "In Italy Alitalia was difficult to contact and failed to provide timely and complete information about changes to check in procedures, e-ticket number, and flight identification number changes. Web site clunky at best and telephone tree info all in Italian only. When I tried to check in on line only message was of a "problem" with the ticket. No way to get info even at airport until shortly before flight. Flight departed one hour late. My wife's foot room impeded by electronic control box under seat in front of her. In short, back office and online services poor but flight and plane ok. None the less, will not use Alitalia again due to back office problems."
Cons: "We had booked a weekend getaway, first the returned flight was cancelled and changed for a later one that didn't work for us (we couldn't get to work on time), we managed to change that for another flight the day before, shortening our vacation, then, when we got to the airport, an hour before boarding, we find out there, without warning, that the outgoing flight had been cancelled! This time it wasn't automatically changed, and there was no warning, the only solution they were giving us was an afternoon flight the other day, shortening our weekend getaway even more. After half an hour of discussion, they found and earlier flight, with connection, double the time, but that would get us there at around 2pm, so still we were missing almost half a day, but that was the best they could do. The flight was OK, boarding was late, but hey, that seems to always be the experience with this type of flights. I would just say they are not very reliable, having both your outbound and inbound flights cancelled, seems to much, specially if you're just going for a short getaway, you may end up having a one-day getaway!"
Pros: "fast boarding"
Cons: "crews are extremely rude; whenever they had to move the cart in the isles they always ended up slamming every passengers arm without a single apology. and they have no control of the environment due to some young passengers were making loud noises during the whole flight."
Pros: "My checked bag did not show up in Prague"
Pros: "The crew was great. Very attentive"
Cons: "No entertainment. Food was ok. Seats not comfortable for business class."
Pros: "Check in easy."
Cons: "Two hour weather delay Impossible European connection (which I somehow made) No luggage (it didn't make connection)"
Cons: "Seats are to tied , Unprofessional service"
Cons: "staff was nice, lost my luggage, and it was 8 hours late, i paid 2x to leave earlier, and got in later than the cheapest flight"
Cons: "Alitalia is a Bullshit company, we were late to our connection because of the air line, they told us the next flight is waiting for us, but they didn't... We got tickets to the next flight with no compensation and they lost our snowboard case."
Cons: "Worst airline company ever. Lost my baggage for 4 days although a friend of mine on the exact same flight with me received his. I'm on a snowboarding trip and they lost all my gear and basically made it impossible to enjoy my vacation. I sent 3 emails and no one has contacted me yet! I agree that these things might occur but the airline has to take responsibility for their mistakes and address the issues. WORST airline I've been to, if you are thinking of using it I double insure everything and don't count on them to be responsive!"
Cons: "Airport transfer in Abu Dhabi was dreadful, overcrowded, disorganized, frustrating"
Cons: "Made us run from one end of the airport to the opposite end, because they said they had ‘operational difficulties’, causing them to switch gates between two flights. Total baloney, and completely avoidable."
Cons: "Timing being more accurate"
Pros: "The staff was really nice and on time"
Cons: "Delayed by 4 hours"
Pros: "It left on time and the service was reasonable."
Cons: "This probably isn't to do with EasyJet, but the Nice airport was a disorganised mess. It was under-staffed and there was some type of problem where they wouldn't let anyone leave the airport for an extra hour."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Boarding flowed well. Good flight, helpful staff."
Cons: "Left a little late but made good time. A positive experience."
Cons: "Arrived late, I lost my connection, costing lots of money"
Cons: "Legroom - knees jammed into sest in front, and guy next to me had to put legs into me to fit. Painful"
Cons: "no entertainment no food, no snack, no drink scary landing due to strong, gusty wind in Innsbruck"
Cons: "Loud passengers"
Pros: "Quick and convenient"
Pros: "Appreciate that the situation with the Virgin flight meant that safety checks had to be completed before we could take off. Cabin crew were very chatty, but a free drink or packet if peanuts would have been appreciated. Had a similar delay with a BA flight in June and they gave us a soft drink from the bar as a gesture of goodwill."
Cons: "Once airborne, it would have been good if the pilot could have made up lost time and got us to Malta with less of a delay. Bloke next to me was downing beers and either had a stunning hangover or raging cold. His eyes were bright red and his breath was hideous. Made the whole flight a really unpleasant experience."
Cons: "Just not good enough for business travel. Stick to ahipping holiday makers who have a bit more flexibility on schedules!!"
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Minimal leg rooml"
Pros: "Scheduled to depart at 19.50, left at 01.50 and arrived in Barcelona at 5am."
Cons: "I didnt fly bacuse when i book not show me i mist book set In air port dont give my any seat"
Cons: "Really hard to land past 10pm with 2 young children. Over 3 hours delayed."
Cons: "Flight delayed by over 2 hours (19.05 flight)... Even the 20.30 flight left before us! Zero communication from ground staff, no food vouchers. Extremely poor!"
Pros: "Straight forward, no hassle flight. Staff (cabin crew) were pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Went straight from boarding to gate closed, and when stated gate was closed there was still a queue s mile long. Flight was delayed, but this was presumably due to French air traffic control strike."
Pros: "Self Baggage Check was great, really worked and streamlined. Excellent System"
Cons: "Boarding from Front and Rear doors was great concept but seats were not allocated to Front or Rear so passengers were trying to pass in the aisle when those in the back boarded from front and those in front boarded from back. We were sent to Front for Row 24 next to last row in place. Simple allocated Front and Rear based on seat assignment."
Pros: "Similar to my last booking, EasyJet was unable to process my checkin. I will be adding this entire booking as part of my fraud claim against Kayak, which will include costs incurred for the two additional bookings I had to make."
Cons: "Nothing to add here"
Pros: "Easy checking in"
Cons: "Delays of 1.5hrs, slow food service onboard. Uncomfortable seats Typical easy jet"
Pros: "Crew and service was excellent"
Cons: "Boarding was unfortunately a bit of a mess. I was seated in the last row but had to board through the front, with rear boarding opening later."
Pros: "Staff were good. EasyJet kept us informed. There is a high degree of efficiency and you are treated as a paying passenger rather than cattle."
Cons: "Delays seem inevitable with EasyJet on the Belfast route. I can't remember the last time we had one that wasn't delayed by more than half an hour. The scheduled time is longer than any flight has taken, but I think this is actually a realistic approach given the probability of a delay. There is an issue with 2-3 year olds and seat belts - they are not allowed to travel on a parent's lap, but they can wriggle out a lap belt easily and so are unsecured."
Cons: "Crew was so slow in doing anything and kept forgetting water when asling for it. Forgot about 3 times."
Pros: "Great flight and glad we upgraded our seats to XL and crew were brilliant."
Cons: "Gatwick Airport North very congested and very dirty in eating areas."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great :)"
Pros: "Flight was packed, boarding was easy, plane was crowded, in flight service felt rushed."
Pros: "It was nice to land a few minutes ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Having to walk so much to reach the gate"
Cons: "forced to have cabin bag taken away as hold luggage when they ran out of over head space athough it was small enough to fit under seat - very rude Easyjet staff at boarding who did not want to understand situation. thanks to being delayed by hold luggage pick up missed my connecting journey"
Cons: "I found my luggage broken!!!!"
Pros: "Slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Speedy boarding was a joke. We speedy boarded onto a bus and then everyone else got on so there was no real speedy boarding getting on the plane at all. This is the second time this has happened, and I am seriously thinking of not renewing my EasyJet Plus Card because of this."
Cons: "Very tight seating for people who are over 6’ tall."
Pros: "The staff assisting with luggage were very helpful. We left late but made up time in the air. Kind staff."
Cons: "The delay and the fact I didn't have a seat because of overbook!"
Pros: "the plane was clean"
Cons: "Is it really necessary to charge for even water?"
Pros: "It was very efficient. I didn't expect such digital service. It was all self serve. There were plenty of people to help us though. Our bags were waiting for us in Stuttgart."
Cons: "They are very strict with the liquid rules. You can only bring one quart sized bag. We had to leave three items. They're not kidding!"
Pros: "Efficient service"
Cons: "No sucked"
Pros: "For a short trip it's fine. Price is right, the staff is cheerful, shuttle buses took us to customs very quickly. The bag drop system is very efficient."
Cons: "You know what you get with this airline: no frills, tight spaces, and you board and deplane outdoors (in a downpour in London)."
Pros: "Got to my destination"
Cons: "Said I could add hold baggage on line, but nowhere given an option to do so, so had tp pay twice as much at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, they changed the gate at the last minute I had to run fom One end of the airport to another. The food in the plane was not nice and expensive"
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Although I had a child and was at the boarding gate in time,boarding was a free for all. We were also left waiting in a doorway with baby in the cold and with the fumes of the plane. The food was good but although I was on the first few rows with one of the first to request food some of the selections were not available. The fold out tables were also very dirty and the plane was uncomfortably cold"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours late; and there was no room for my cabin bag except at the back of the plan. Their cabin bag policy is not consistently applied"
Pros: "It went fine. Did not have food though."
Pros: "great no frills airline"
Cons: "The chairs are not comfortable"
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: "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"
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"
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"
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: "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."
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."
