Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers
Great airline feels a lot more expensive than other budget airlines. No complaints whatsoever
I was not boarded because i was positive on my pcr test
The one thing I must say is that the flight wasn't full at all, and in this case, I'm really unsure why they wouldn't sit people farther from each other.
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "Boarding took forever and we were an hour late"
Cons: "Start boarding time 30min before it is set to fly instead of doing when we are supposed to take off"
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
Cons: "Not having a 3+ hours take off delay"
Pros: "It's the cheapest you can get"
Cons: "They split me and my wife on porpuse to force me to buy the option to choose my seating. The leg space is tiny and the chairs won't recline so it's super uncomfortable. Flight times are shitty. Te leave early in the morning so you can barely get some sleep at night. Nor on the plane. They don't any serve food or even water and let you dry up. You can buy overpriced food and beverage onboard. My purchase from the duty free was stolen and they didn't help me handle the problem. Awful experience."
Pros: "I was at the gate. Before the door to enter the airplane. The Hungarian crew wasn’t telling me that they are closing the gate or going to close it. They completely ignore me and let me stand there and at the end I see the door close in front of me, 2 meter from me and they told me I mised flight."
Cons: "I lost my money and I had to buy new flight with other company. Wizzair crew at budapest was very rude and didn’t take responsibility for the mistake they did. They could just say they are closing the door but nobody did. 2 meters from me and after I passed all security they ignored me completely."
Cons: "Flight was over booked"
Pros: "The cheap fares"
Cons: "Airplane was filthy, needed a thorough cleaning. More padding on the seat."
Pros: "The seat not so comfortable but good"
Cons: "Wiz air seems to trick you constantly to get more money out if things they hide from you.. online check-in required.. letting you in work a trolley and then charge you at the gate.. pee service overall.. beware!!"
Cons: "Comfort of the plane. So freaking uncomfortable. Seats didn’t even recline back."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Cons: "Application instruction on baggage hande king and que to boarding."
Pros: "All and all great value for the money"
Cons: "1. The check in was delayed and very chaotic. 2. The landing was horrible 3. The plane was not comfortable ."

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."
Pros: "Good legroom and comfortable seats"
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: "The Crew was excellent"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible, took a long time - few and not enough boarding and suitcases counters, which made people wait for a long time and even let others to pass them in line because their flight was earlier. due to this our flight was late by 45 minutes. the food was too expensive."
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."
Pros: "Price price price"
Cons: "Messy boarding"
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"
Cons: "Altough I bought prioroty boarding, the ground handling staff did not take this into account so everybody boarded the same time."
Cons: "The airline does not have kiosk check-in. You are checked in automatically, and if you buy through a third party, your boarding pass is emailed to you. Never having flown this 'unique' airline before, we did not know the process. At the check-in desk, the clerk told us that if we couldn't show him our boarding pass, he would charge us 30GBP to print them. He was a complete jerk. After no help from him, I was able to figure out that we did have them as attachments. Never again."
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: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"

Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Pros: "I will never take flight with this company again!!!!! The worst ever shame on you"
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: "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: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Flight was uneventful, boarding was late and should have started earlier
Good value for money. Chairs are very basic, won’t recline. Other than that everything ok.
food and entertainment are not relevant for this flight
The lady at the check in desk was brutal. I explained her that I'm coming 2 com connection flights and I did not know that I have do to ht th the myself. She insisted and had me pa id the 50€
there was a delay for over 3 hours due to fog this is toatly acceptable, beacause of flight safety but since the fog was not unknown why we were boarded and than had to wait on plane without option to go back to the terminal the boarding was on foot so there was cnot supposed to be a big problem to get back and than reboard
And everything was right on time. They could offer a glass of water.
They did not Tool uș to TLV as We hâd to do Corona test
Very strange boarding, long wait on foot after the gate.
more than 1 hour delay for a technical problem found after boarding ended.
The announcements in Bologna are very bad. We almost missed our flight. But the ground crew was very nice and helpful!
The manager of the flight didn’t allow me to go on the flight because I was late in just one minute!!!! She preferred to take off my baggage instead of giving me to fly home. I have hearing device and I didn’t hear the call. I paid extra priority and for extra baggage and I want my money back!! Thank you
Pros: "We (a family of 5) were late for 5 minutes (literally) to the boarding ... Our flight was at 3.45 PM and were at the gate at 3.20 PM ... We were held up at the Passport Control by the Polish Border Guards at the Passport Control - their computer was down ... My wife cried, my kids cried and asked to be let in on the plane ... Nobody cared to help us ..."
Cons: "for RyanAir to be more human and humane and caring ..."
Cons: "Going on time without delay, more staff to avoid long lines"
Pros: "the leg room was fine"
Cons: "the getting to the airplane and from the airplane after landing can be better by using more busses"
Cons: "50euro check in fee was awesome"
Pros: "The desire to keep up with the schedule. impressive."
Cons: "Memmingen Airport does not call "Priority" card holders at the beginning of boarding passengers."
Cons: "Improve comfort in meetings and more space .."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Boarding is always late and take long time. Maybe come with some better system to make it quicker. I'm not happy with prices for suitcases but that kinda doable."
Pros: "The aircraft seats were really comfortable."
Cons: "We could have been boarded on time instead of early so we could sit a bit more to wait"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our suitcase were lost"
Cons: "I came to the airport on 17:30 but The Checkin counter were open too late, after 1800. There was only 1 staff member in the counter. The lines were long and crouded . After we finished our check in and sent the luggage we went to the gate. There they realized that some of the printed bourding passes are not o k. The attendant in the counter did not checked it and sent us to the gate. We had to go back to the counter but the flight was closed already. We called the staff and after all we had to pay 100 euro to the counter to print the correct bourding passes and then to rush to the aircraft. If Ryan air put enough staff in the counters it wouldn’t happen. We almost miss the flight and it caused us a big inconvenous."
Pros: "That the place reached safetly to its destination"
Cons: "Rome Line to checkin started at the entrance of the airport with no Ground staff attention or clear line marked people were fighting and cutting each other . Check in process approved our luggage for hand cary as we paid for it in advance. In the gate they suddenly decided the luggage was 1 cm larger then agreed, refused to bring a measurement tape and charged us 50 Euro in addition to send the luggae in the plane rather than hand carry. Need less to say that in the flight to Rome our luggage was approved for hand carry so clearly Rome staff were into making money.. Planes were late to take off and 1 hour late to land (that from a total of a 3 hour flight ) although not announced . In summary ground staff experience was awaful and made us decide to not fly with Ryanair air again"
Pros: "It arrived to its destination."
Cons: "Extremely long lines from start to end (bag drop off, security, passports, line to boarding etc), plenty of long walks from one line to the other. Everything cost extra charges, we had to add a non négligeable amount, in order to be seated with the kids, to have our boarding pass printed. A tiny bottle of water cost 3€. No entertainment whatsoever. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Absolute nothing!"
Cons: "An hour delay for take off, we were trapped in the plane"
Cons: "We got the feeling that the price is low but the company will do all it takes to FAIL the customer and make him pay more. For example, the customer must check in online. if not done properly the cost is about 100 euro more, AND the online check in procedure is not working that well, you need to press buttons several times in order for it to work (and I have a good phone), and if you give up in the middle it will cost you. More on that we did a mistake and did not purchase luggage for the way back, when we went to the desk to buy it (after standing more than 2 hours in the check in), we were told to pay 40 euros, where the price is 23 if paid online. we asked to talk to a manager and get the regular price for the suitcase, the cashier said "no problem i can call him, but then you will miss the flight..." and in the meantime there were still lots of people in the check in line... The service is very slow and not pleasant, and the crew always give you the feeling you are not ok. I understand the price is low and this is a lo cost flight, but this should not happen no matter what is the price."
Pros: "Arrive 5 minutes earlier"
Cons: "The boarding was a mess. We had to wait in the bus for about 40 minutes because the plane was not ready yet. The landing was rough. But I guess it’s okay because it’s very cheap."
Cons: "we had delayed for 2 hours"
Pros: "Price. Timetable"
Cons: "Seats. The fact they put everyone in a deferent row"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "All, my wife needs a glass of water to take a pill and she was refused."
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
Pros: "price, schedule, staff"
Cons: "the inconsistent carry-on bag policy which changed from the time of ticket purchase and forced us to purchase a 'premium' add-on to our ticket in order to be able to take our trollys on board. not professional."
Cons: "The smell on the toilet was horrendous"
Pros: "I can't think of a single good thing in that experience"
Cons: "Ryanair acted like a dust Stucker of money. Not only on the way forward they forbidded only flights from Israel (!) to bring any hand luggage at all without purchasing the priority boarding, and people were allowed with a small hand bag only (since the priority tickets finished) , but on the way backwards, after the entire airplane bought the priority ticket, the crew of ryanair acted in such a discriminating way and banned people that exceeded the bag check with less than 2 cm! It seems like the crew were determined to collect at many 50euro fines as possible from the passenger because they insisted very impolitly and brutally to measure each luggage from all possible sides, and even the luggage that fitted, they found excuses to fail them. I've rarely experienced such humiliating vision, especially due to the fact that everyone were forced to purchase the extra priority boarding and you'd expect the company to try and keep the customers, not drive them away. I can just say that with all the fines and extra payments requested by them, the total price of the flight was 100euro more expensive than the price of El AL or alitalia, same timing and with a meal and big suitcase included. All this, without mentioning the bad attitude of the crew and the extreme uncomfortability of the chairs (also purchased, obviously). To summarize, this was a very bad choice, with I will not repeat again."
Pros: "There is a lady at the gate before we board the flight from rome (FCO) to tel aviv who is particularly nasty. She scrutinized and had every single person on line put their bag to be measured. She even did that with small back packs!!! Unfortunately for HER nobody had to pay extra for luggage!!! It is really the attitude. i paid a lot of money for my flight as much as a regular fligh neary $400 and yet I was still NOT allowed to take luggage. Its ridiculous!!! Had I booked with a regular airline, I would have paid similar fees and have a bag to put on the plane . Its time that Ryan air stop taking advantage of people and allow some luggage just like everyone else does. It doesn't have to be 50 lb but it can be a few pounds!!!"
Pros: "the cost"
Cons: "Boarding was late in 30 min."
Pros: "Everything was well organized and worked as expected. Good ROI"
Cons: "Seats has fixed configuration (but it become an advantage when you're eating and working since front passenger can't make you troubles:-)"
Pros: "Made me pay 50 euros for a small trolley that was a bit above the requested dimensions though it fits well to the over head bins. Apart from this - nice crew and a pleasent flight"
Cons: "Too tough with measuring the trolkey bag. On the eay from my homeland ww had no challenge with the same bag"
Pros: "Very good value for money. Courteous service by cabin crew."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seating arrangements. It seems all the passengers were separated by purpose. No one set with their spouse."
Pros: "The price was very cheap as I booked half a year ahead. Flight was on time. Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. You have to pay for everything else except for the flight but this is Ryanair and it's understandable."
Pros: "Seat xxl very cold beside escape door. Do not worthy to pay"
Pros: "Awesome staff. Was upgraded to comfort seating for free"
Cons: "Dense seats. Terrible check-in inefficiency. Crew argues with passengers. What not."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no room for bags overhead and shocking disembarkation."
Cons: "No early check in. The longest line at check in that I ever seen. Terrible seats"
Cons: "Had to pay for just a basic cup of juice. No snack provided."
Cons: "30 min late no a/c"
Pros: "Crew, hours, convenience"
Cons: "Departure frim tel aviv was very! bad. Departure delayed a lot, but the check in was really terrible. Slow, inefficient ground crew."
Cons: "The plane was late by over an hour, and no one even bothered to update us about the current flight status... We just waited untill an hour later, we got word about what was going on"
Pros: "Daily flight"
Cons: "No service at all, feels like low cost"
Cons: "Night flight, do not stop talking"
Cons: "I never knew you can make the sit rows so close to each other :)"
Cons: "The crew were not nice... talked to us in a Horrible way. There weren't any blankets"
Cons: "No food Limitted laugage"
Pros: "flight left on time crew was nice"
Cons: "no food or entertainment, and I didnt know it was like a low cost flight"
Cons: "Leg room is very bad"
Pros: "Good communication with the crew, very kind and nice."
Pros: "The leg-room was ok only because we were assigned to an exit row."
Cons: "No advance check-in. All food and drink cost money aside from water. Take off was late in both directions. Landing was horrible, pilot dipped without warning several times. No options for entertainment at all."
Cons: "no drinks, even water. no ampthy from the crew, even not a smille"
Pros: "The plane was new, we were sat in the exit seats, so had ample leg space (though the seats did not lean back because of that). The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "The check-in process was very lengthy. I think a lot of it was because of the passengers, but probably the ground crew could have been more efficient."
Cons: "Huge delays. We had connections but they forced us to do check-in for every leg separately. Long queues. In both flights unexplained delays. We sat in the plain for two hours and they did not explained why. Not enough room for legs. We paid for options to check online but it was not available."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and quite organized nicely"
Cons: "I asked for an emergency place due to my height (6"5) and got one, only to realize that instead of placing 2 rows for the emergency area they placed 3(!) rows, making the emergency exits the smallest rows on the plane. Eventually we were moved to other seats, but that was horrible. No food. No Entertainment. Crew was Hebrew speaking but talked to the passangers only in English (bad one, I must add)."
Pros: "I was able to choose my seat without any additional fees. Crew was super professional."
Cons: "Dying of thirst."
Cons: "The announcement finally boarding, then when everyone was waiting they delayed the flight. They gave one half a cup of water and when I asked for more I was told that I would have to purchase it. they offered nothing no snacks no entertainment uncomfortable seats only 5 kilo carry on and 15 checked luggage. Even though on the Czech air website site it allowed for 23k.I hope never to take that flight again, it wasn't even cheaper."
Pros: "See above. But we given water."
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "Hi, Words cannot describe the damage your crew made when separating the seats between my wife and I. She is pregnant and I wasn't able to sit by her during the flight. SHAME ON YOU!"
Cons: "nO ON LINE CHECK IN AVAILABLE Only received a glass of water No entertainment It was not a Czeck airline aircraft, it was smartwings I paid for a schedule airline quality flight, received a substandard charter flight service"
Cons: "The most tight plane I have ever been. Luckily the flight was just for 4 hours, horrible."
Cons: "When I bought a Czech Air flight, I thought I was getting Czech Air- but no, it was SmartWings, their budget buddy whose seats are literally squeezed together from all directions. Do not fly this airline if you are anything but short and skinny. There are zero amenities for free- which, again, would not have been the case on Czech Airlines. The nonchalant crew attitude from start to finish did not help the experience, nor did the lack of signage to find the airline's check in at Gatwick.."
Cons: "Nobody told that this is low cost flight !!! No food or even water during flight. Baggage limitation of 15 kg. No leg space at all. This information should be displayed during ticket reservation."
Pros: "The crew was OK."
Cons: "Don't let it fool you. SmartWings is a low-coster, although you pay a full price of the CZ Airlines. No food. A glass of water is 2EUR. No service whatsoever. The smallest legroom I ever had. The flight was delayed by an hour and a half with no explanation. And the best part - you're only allowed to check 15kgs of luggage, although you paid a full price for CZ airlines, which allows 23!"
Cons: "היה איחור גם בטיסה מתל אביב של חצי שעה לפחות, כי הצוות לא פתח את הכניסה למטוס בזמן, ואיחור של שעה וחצי בדרך חזרה. השירות היה נוראי, כיסאות לא נוחים, צוות לא באמת נחמד. מאוד לא מומלץ"
Pros: "The flight was sopuuse to depertur in 23:50 and we take of after 1"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "1. From Tel-Aviv: to Prague, the flight was delayed by 2h 2. Prague to Tel-Aviv; flight was delayed by 3h with 10 days notice. Then, was additional delayed after checking. Thus, instead of 11:55 (initial time when we bought the tickets.) we flew at 4:00 AM. 3. My husbands flight was canceled without any notice. We got to checking, I was on the system but my husbands ticket was canceled. My husband had a confirmed E-ticket. It was already 1 in the morning... we were shocked... Nobody was there to help. He was sent to another office in the airport to talk to someone that did not a represent the airline. The only flight that could be arrange was via Moscow. My husband arrive to Tel-Aviv 12h later. No compensation was offered, no hotel, food. My husband his a specialist-physician. 20 patients waiting for over 3 months to see him had to be cancelled. He arrived exhausted and upset and could not work even the next day. I would to point out that the travel agent did not get any notice of the cancellation and did ask for it. 4. Old airplane, not comfortable, no space, unfriendly flight attendants for checking and on board. 5. We were not served even water 6. I was very cold but could not get a blanket from the flight attendant. 7. On overall, very bad experience that will not be repeated. I will never fly with this company again."
Cons: "late on our way to and from Europe, seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "I will not fly with them again. I have too much stressful experience. I had bought my tickets more then 6 month before the fligth but because overbooking situation I did not enter to this fligth and I was forced to stay another day without no money and insurens when the next fligth will be.To be continue I was noticed that only fligth that can arrangeg for me to Tel Aviv is not direct via Moscow and total duration will be as 9 hours. The moment I arrived to Moscow I was very suprise to Know that my next fly to Tel Aviv on that day canceled too. I had to stay one more nigth in moskow . so I came back to Tel Aviv after 48 hours!!!! Before than I bouthg tickets I checked baggage allowance on the website of Cheh Air Travel Company and it was 23 kg. vs actually16kg !!"
Pros: "The most horrible flight I have ever been on in my life"
Cons: "- 4 hour delay with no explanation, except that they knew and didn't tell the passengers. - treating passengers like sheep - demand money for water - old and dirty airplane NEVER AGAIN SMART WINGS/CZECH AIRLINES, TRAVEL SERVICE AIRLINES"
Pros: "The flight crew was lovely."
Cons: "Major delays, we stayed at the airport for 3 hours! Very annoying, and uncomfortable."
Cons: "איחור של שעות ארוכות גם בהלוך וגם בחזור. יחס מזלזל ומחפיר. חברה לא רצינית ולא מקצועית. מטוסים ישנים ולא נוחים.דיילים קצרי רוח ולא נחמדים."
Cons: "P.S. I'm not sure they are actually qualified to be called an airline. I would not let them run a grocerry store..."
Cons: "The boarding was really slow, there was no entertainment or any service during the flight."
Cons: "we were supposed to take of at 4:50. the flight left the airport at 7:30"
Pros: "We got there safe"
Cons: "Delays delays delays"
Pros: "Friendly service, helpful ground staff."
Cons: "It may be was not the company fault, but the security check was very long and hypercritical"
Cons: "It is very confusing that you can nto do the check in before the flight or to do it through different company and with code number wich you even do not have! and anyway it did not work! so thepassenger doesn't know about his terminal or check in before the flight! another thing - last call they did exactly in the same time of opening the gate - there is no reason for making your passengers nervous and pissed before the flght some of the flight crew weren't too polite... there is no place for passenger on his seat if passenger in front of him puts his seat down. I am flying pretty often. I also had few flights with smart wings and I never experienced this uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "They broke my €1000 baby stroller"
Cons: "Both flights had a delay of about an hour to an hour and half."
Pros: "Reasonable price"
Cons: "Late departure"
