Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "It was enough fast"
Cons: "Too much money for nothing service."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
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..."
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."
Cons: "Both flues were really delay really disappointed"
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: "Application instruction on baggage hande king and que to boarding."
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."
Pros: "We got to our destination."
Cons: "There was a problem with their website that was out of our control, that didn’t allow us to print boarding passes and we were charged at the airport even though we had proof we tried and were not able through no fault of our own"
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: "So cheap."
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"
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"
Cons: "I didn't eat No entertainment"
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: "The don't say the truth"
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"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Preview print passwords"
Cons: "We were made to wait for some 40 minutes in a glorified cattle shed with no seating before boarding. Will never fly with this airline again, however cheap it might be!"

Cons: "Endless sales in cabin of duty free items"
Pros: "The staff"

Cons: "Notification of which Gate!! All the steps Down to the tarmac then up the plane steps!!! Priority- didn't seem to mean anything- everybody boarded the same!! The Cabin crew- Rushed announcements!! And worked as I feel robots!! But definitely got Value for Money!!!"
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: "Reasonable price."

Cons: "2 hours delayed. No information."
Cons: "It was delayed"
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"
Pros: "Low cost"
Cons: "Passengers treated like cattles. Not prepared at all"
Cons: "Boarding was not convenient, a lot of walking outside and standing near the plane. We were not offered just water for free. The worst thing: husband and wife with one checked in bag and one carry on bag can't board together, should board in different time."
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: "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: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "Delays and lack of clarity and updating"
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: "the cost"
Cons: "Boarding was late in 30 min."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "3 hour delay at Stansted to collect luggage, with no information. Arrived home at 4:30am, having missed the last train."
Pros: "Egy isn't there an option not to rate something? How to rate food on a flight where there is no food served, if you didn't want to buy? Or entertainment on a 90 minutes long flight?"
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: "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: "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)"
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: "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."
Pros: "i love ryainair"
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: "Mientras se esperaban los buses, la tripulación gritó irrespetuosamente a los pasajeros que aguardábamos a nuestros familiares en la pista de aterrizaje dado que la capacidad de los buses que pusieron a nuestra disposición era escasa; debe comprenderse que se transportan personas, no reses (con el respeto que estas merecen)"
Pros: "simple and overall ok"
Cons: "Lines in Budapest are terribly long"
