Could not check on on line for 1 out of 3 passengers
Pros: "The crew was very professional and I cannot complain about that."
Cons: "Budapest airport has tricky terminal for the Wizzair planes. You have to go outside the main terminal to get to the Wizz terminals and then you have to go outside again to get to the plane. It was really weird but I understand that as it is a low budget flight provider. The thing that made me really upset was that we all (passengers) left the terminal to get to the plane and we had to wait outside till we could start entering the plane. I really don’t understand why someone made us to wait outside while it’s freezing cold when the doors are not open or plane is not ready. That was unreasonable and ruined my trip."
Cons: "Gate announcement was only a few minutes before cut off!!"
Pros: "Nothing. Horrible experience overall, but what you pay is what you get."
Cons: "Pretty much everything..."
Cons: "boarding process felt like herding"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
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."
Pros: "Ok flight"
Cons: "Comply with departure times"
Cons: "Not accusing the customer of not having a priority booking when they do, not having an hour long wait, and not accusing the customer of having a bag too big when it wasn’t."
Pros: "Price of ticket"
Cons: "Seats are terrible."
Cons: "Changing in luggage information was annoying"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport 2.5 hours earlier than departure as suggested. They opened check in for Naples on the boards but the agents would not let anyone for Naples check in/bag drop. Once allowed it was chaos in the line. Once we got through security our flight posted as “boarding”. We got there in time but the unnecessary rush was uncomfortable and chaotic."
Pros: "I called flight network and was put on hold for about five minutes, simply to get an answer to the question of the baggage allowance - I didn’t see it anywhere when booking the wiz air ticket. They told me that I was slowed one checked baggage and one cabin baggage that would be charged about €40 if it was over 30 kilos (which it was not). At the airport wizz air said that I had chosen online booking (which I had not) and therefore I had to pay a €30 fee. Also they said I had no checked baggage allowance and was charged an additional €150 !!!!"
Cons: "That I wa given false information that cost me a huge amount of money, And that the booking page does not make it easy to add baggage information."
Cons: "Did not fly. They wanted $100 to check my bag. I flew another airline."
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 ."
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."
Cons: "I didn't check in, in advance as when logging on to the airline I needed a code. I didn't have the code as I was searching emails for the booking agent and airline when it was (as I later discovered) sent by another name. This resulted in £30 to check in going out and 40 euros back. Desk staff were unhelpful bordering on rude (the cabin staff were fine in that respect. I wasn't the only one at least 20 people queuing on the return with the same issue. Additionally on the delay out they advised food could be brought at the rear of the plane then inflight ran out so some people ate twice while by the time I got to my hotel they had stopped serving food and I had not eaten in the airport sorting out the boarding passes."
Pros: "Staff were generally sweet & approachable."
Cons: "Cannot understand management of border control security before boarding. This is done in the corridor on route to gate. Long long queues, then continued to queue before boarding in the waiting/holding room. No toilets once you enter the corridor to go to gate. Unsatisfactory management. Water from air conditioner dripping on me on board from take off. Not an immediate suggestion to move, but agreement to do so on my suggestion and then gentle insistence. Thankfully there was a seat for me! It seemed to be a problem staff were aware of which is concerning that Wizz did not block that seat."
Cons: "standing 1 hour in the bus before boarding,than telling you that will be 90 minutes late take off"
Pros: "Quickest in & out procedure at both BUD and LTN in a long time and a super pretty flight attendant."
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: "Flight left on time"
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."
Pros: "Crew were friendly! The app for the journey is good."
Cons: "announcements a little muffled. A delay caused us to wait on the bus for a good half an hour which was somewhat uncomfy, and the plane was very warm. couldn't take my shoulder bag on as well even though I could've put it under the chair, which I feel like is a sneaky way of making you pay for the speedy boarding thing."
Pros: "Well organised."
Cons: "Charging for light refreshments."
Pros: "nice servers"
Cons: "no kosher food for free"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no water free"
Cons: "It was a full plane ride but they didn't seem to be boarding on time? After checking in we scanned our passports using the machines and then we were in what I thought was the boarding area so we relaxed and waited by the screens in a coffee shop. But when our flight gate was announced there was another passport control to get into those gates with a big line which threatened to delay our boarding. There wasn't enough room for everyone to put their bags in the overhead locker which meant there were even more delays and it felt a bit rushed to get off. When we arrived I was queuing down the stairs to get to the queue for passport control which took about 45-60 minutes to get through with no toilets. I was also charged 40 euros per person for not checking in and printing the boarding pass which is my fault, but the charges do seem excessive."
Cons: "Hidden fees"
Cons: "Never ever gonna choose Wizz air ... not a frist time I had to pay extra because of the suitcase ... But this is happening always on Hungary not in London."
Pros: "Flight attendance service was great and smiley"
Cons: "Nothing much"
Pros: "Actual in-air flying experience was smooth."
Cons: "Due to technical issue with plane, passengers were delayed about 15-20 minutes on the tarmac in a crowded, hot shuttle bus with ineffective air conditioning and almost no fresh air coming in."
Pros: "I will never take flight with this company again!!!!! The worst ever shame on you"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Needed to pay 50 euros for luggage. Beware that unless you have a kids suitcase you will need to pay for luggage. Also, when boarding the hostess was pushing me to show my boarding pass- it took 30 seconds but she was already trying to push me to the side and let others board. Patience and understanding would have been nice. Seats are the smallest of all the regional carriers - not my first airline choice to travel for next time."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing much."
Pros: "only good for short flights....the price.."
Cons: "not comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding and getting off the plane via bus"
Pros: "I put on my VR goggles and noise cancelling headphones as soon as I was allowed to and I watched 3D movies during the whole flight."
Cons: "There were too many announcements about food / things Wizzair tried to sell me, it would be best if they'd leave us alone until the end of the trip."
Pros: "No water for the passengers, tea should be paid for, full price was not shown before ticket purchase, worse customer service (very rude)."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "on the flight back we waited in the bus for a very long time before we were taken to the plane."
Pros: "awesome UX/UI"
Cons: "not so great on the mobile version"
Cons: "I tried for 3 days after I booked my flight to pre pay for 2 mid size bags we were going to check for the flight. In the 10-15 attempts or so, none of them ever went through. I tried everything I could, until finally giving up. I figured I could try my best to explain at the airport. Terrivle plan. The airport charge for 2 bags was 65 euros each! More than the cost of the one way flight! Nobody could help at the airport despite me explaining in detail that I had tried multiple times to book online to save $. Seats were smallest I've ever been in, lines were extremely confusing and unorganized in boarding, and the air conditioning wasn't working. Will never fly wizz air again"
Good value for money. Chairs are very basic, won’t recline. Other than that everything ok.
Pros: "Fast process, precisely organized."
Cons: "There is no window at 11A seat!!!"
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."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early, the staff were pleasant and friendly."
Cons: "The cabin was a bit grubby."
Cons: "Checking opened 20 minutes late and lengthy queues through security meantwe had no time to grab food/shopping as we had to rush to gate as no notifications that our flight was actually delayed by an hour. Everyone was herded onto buses to wait there for some reason rather than at gate"
Pros: "Price, flight crew."
Cons: "The gate was in a sheet-metal hangar outside the terminal alongside the parked plane, no bathroom or seating. We had to line up for the plane outside in the night air for 30 minutes before boarding. We were overcharged for checked baggage."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our suitcase were lost"
Cons: "Ryan Air have changed their online check in system with flights.Basically i was forced to pay for a seat spot on my return flight because they only allow 48 hour check in before flight if you dont purchase a seat. Because of the risk of not having access to print out my boarding pass when in Hungary while checking in there for the return part and that the app may not have worked on my phone it resulted in me paying additional fees or pay a larger sum to check in at Hungary airport. .Online check in should not be locked behind a paywell.This is dishonest business. The flight on the way delayed with no explanation and the company didnt bother to notify the airport of this and update the times on the boards or atleast a delayed notification at the airport. They tried to rush the boarding because of the fact they were delayed and boarded all passengers at same time in both priority and non priority queues which kind of defeats part of the purpose of those people paying the extra for priority boarding. Also this return journey of the flight was delayed too with no communication of a delayed take off. Despite the fact that Ryan Air claim to have the highest percentage of flights arrive on time i have yet to witness a single flight of theirs arrive on time which has me to believe the company is falsifying information on this record."
Pros: "Reasonable price."
Cons: "Was sat nowhere near my group of friends, know one on the plane was sat with who they travelled with. Plane was running late."
Cons: "2 hours delayed. No information."
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: "Absolute nothing!"
Pros: "Flight was cheap and it got me home."
Cons: "At Budapest airport Ryanair’s gate B9 there was no communication or it seemed any system in place. Plus the gate itself was so small all passengers couldn’t fit."
Cons: "Delay 90minutes.. Miss the rent a car.. Lost a bunch of money. Never again Ryanair"
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: "Low cost"
Cons: "Passengers treated like cattles. Not prepared at all"
Cons: "More than 1.5 hours delay, they took my luggage from me, so I had to take out my laptop because the Budapest airport luggage handler thieves. Very loud speakers inside, the seating is very uncomfortable, small legspace and also you cannot put even your glasses in front of you because of lack of storage place. long walking to and from the plane, and you have to wait for ages in front ot the checking desk, than in the hot bus down. Overall totally inhuman experience."
Cons: "we had delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "The 35 minute delay on the departure and 1 hour on return Super cramped seats with no leg room at all Having to pay to sit together on top of the original flights- unsure who books 2 tickets to sit apart?"
Pros: "Price. Timetable"
Cons: "Seats. The fact they put everyone in a deferent row"
Pros: "Your personal in plain is young, nice and I like them becouse they are smailing all time."
Cons: "You can give to pasenger one drink (coffee) like preasen!?"
Pros: "The landing"
Cons: "All, my wife needs a glass of water to take a pill and she was refused."
Cons: "30 minutes waiting, New lugguage policy!"
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."
Cons: "3 hour delay at Stansted to collect luggage, with no information. Arrived home at 4:30am, having missed the last train."
Pros: "Very good value for money. Courteous service by cabin crew."
Pros: "Crew was very loud, I couldn't really sleep, the personal leg space is too small, could barely fit in there."
Cons: "The crew was loud (flight related issues)"
Cons: "I paid an upgrade of my ticket and they charged me $60+ dollars for not doing online check-in. AMAZINGLY BAD."
Pros: "Everything was acceptable apart from their petty ploy to split couples up"
Cons: "Because we don't want to pay extra for seating we don't check in until 4 days before the flight. Usually this is not a problem but on this flight they split us up, one at the front & one at the rear, then they ask if we want to pay extra to sit together. This is a very petty ploy to get extra money. It doesn't work !! The passengers just swop when on the plane"
Pros: "good value for money, nice new aircraft"
Cons: "typical ultra low cost experience, but its fine"
Pros: "There was nothing positive about this flight experience."
Cons: "Called to gate, where there was nothing to do. 10 min later on screens 1 hour delay, 20 mins later increased to 2 hour delay - no infor given. Member of airport staff informed us we would get some food ( distugust unfortunatly) about 30 mins from expected (2 hour late delay) another delay, now leaving 3h10 min later than expected. Board the plane, taxing to runway told we will be flying into Gatwick not Stansted, not other info given. When asking flight attendants, told they had no info either and also had been delayed ( I still can't get over how rude staff were). Just before landing announced that it had all been sorted and there would be coaches taking us to the correct airport. This was a lie! Nothing put on at at 4am we were expected to sort our own transport back to the correct airport. Never again will I fly with an airline that fails to fulfil their contract. Despicable."
Pros: "Once boarded the transportation task was undertaken professionally"
Cons: "- No information on the ground - 90 minute STANDING wait (like sheep in a barn) in unventillated/unairconditioned Budapest Airport discount airline departure 'hall' (barn would be a better term) - no toilet, no space, no air - On board staff was visibly exhausted, robotlike"
Cons: "Worst experience. Multiple charges. Made it one of the most expensive trips. Terrible!"
Cons: "I am very disappointed from the service offered by ryanair. I've paid priority and seat. And in the end went on board with others and stayed on normal seat, which supposed to be with extra space. Very unhappy."
Cons: "The new Ryanair tactics of splitting couples to force them to play for the seat."
Cons: "No information why flight was delayed. Left standing on shuttle bus for 30mins with no information. Leg room non existent on plane. Seat bolt upright all the time. Staff pleasant enough but definitely "cattle class""
Cons: "What can you expect from Ryanair? They treat their passengers like kettle when boarding. Specifically we had to stand and in a hot anghar before boarding for 40 mins. No seats, water or idea why we have to wait there rather than the airport. I experienced it so many times and tell myself never again. if I have an option I never fly with them."
Cons: "the worst ever!!!"
Pros: "simple and overall ok"
Cons: "Lines in Budapest are terribly long"
Pros: "the price was very cheap. flight was on time."
Cons: "space between seats very tight and its a real suffer for big person.. every thing needs to be bought. at least some water can be served free...."
