Since the BUD-TLV flight got cancelled a week ago, I never made it to Israel. I have postponed the trip by a week. Also on the new flight by WizzAir there was a delay. Horrible airlines.
The flight was 20 minutes late to board and there was no communications about this.
Flown this route twice with Wizz- both times more than 6 hours delay
Too many hours of delay ( 4)
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Let me know by mail to check in before I got to the airport and save me 35 euro"
Cons: "Lower the aircondition temp, it was hot in the plane during flight"
Pros: "The crew was ok. The seats no conmfortable."
Cons: "Every time the same problems. Bording we have to wait almost an hour and then all the people have to wait for the bus in a very Small place(like animals) then at the bus... waiting in a full one untill someone says ok to ride.."
Pros: "Everything went exactly as it should with any flight - check-in (long queue, but multiple desks open so it didn't take long for everyone to check-in on time), boarding (swift and efficient), operation (no technical issues, no unpleasant experiences, flight departed and landed on time) & plane (fairly new and clean aircraft)."
Cons: "Not being connected to a jet (boarding) bridge, despite the aircraft being parked right in front of the terminal, next to one of these connecting bridges. We had to take the bus circle the terminal for what felt like an unnecessary expense-cutting choice made by Wizzair."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "The don't let you sit together unless you pay extra, it's absolutely absurd. Thay put us on the opposite side of the airplane."
Cons: "You must check in few hours before the flight. Checking in at the airport will cost you 35€. Besides that, the boarding took almost 40min and the seats are not comfy at all. That said, i would rather pay extra $50 and fly with normal company."
Pros: "Overall experience was good. Boarding was fine and onboard crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats do not recline and there is not a lot of legroom, especially if you are over 180 cm."
Pros: "crew and boarding was nice"
Cons: "don't stop the airplane 5 miles from the terminal in a pouring rain making everyone have to walk to the gate and getting soaked."
Pros: "I think some of the issues were passenger related, and passengers not listening to the crew. So it wasn't so much I liked it but some of the crew's attitudes were warranted based on the passengers."
Cons: "We were loaded onto the bus to take us to the plane and then stood on the bus for 45 minutes! Then were delayed even longer. With zero explanation the entire time. Additionally having to pay for even water is a bit much, especially when I came prepared, but drank more because it was hot on the bus."
Pros: "Once boarding started it was very fast and flight left shortly after"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 40 min"
Pros: "Service, smiling and attention to details."
Cons: "No kosher food."
Pros: "On time, cabin crew, ease of boarding and amount of bags I could take with Priority Boarding"
Cons: "My seat hadn't been cleaned prooerly before I got there and if I hadn't done it myself, I would have someone else's chocolate all over the seat of my trousers. Also, the bathroom floors were really gross, to the point I had to roll uo the legs of my trousers so they didn't get wet when I needed to use the toilet."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The borsing from terminal 1 is should be highlight The man in the check in and bording wad not nice at all. He didn't answer any question. They took our hand bag. We couldn't take it to the plan and no one explaon why."
Cons: "With WizzAir no more in my life it’s even worse than Easyget or Raynair even if you have a cabin suitcase you still have to check in you can’t take it on a plain anymore. Really disappointing and they are not that cheap as they think. £90 one way from Kiev to Luton it’s a bit too much"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The flight was ok"
Cons: "Not much of a food choice.."
Cons: "No air conditioned 2 hours late Poor ground service"
Pros: "The flight was overbooked so they took my wife of the flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed by more than 2 hours, additional 40 minutes in the plain before departure. At least 30 minutes until doors opened. Overall huge delay that totally killed my business day."
Pros: "Everything was on time, no delays. Polite crue. Easy boarding."
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "On time boarding, departure and arrival. Smooth flight. Better than Ryanair."
Cons: "Seats were horrible. Narrow, no leg room and awfully uncomfortable. Worse than easyJet."
Pros: "Pilot flew well Cup Noodles available to buy"
Cons: "1h+ delayed No information from the staff or crew (only one apology from the pilot) Left waiting in multiple places including outside the aircraft No updates whatsoever on estimated departure and arrival"
Pros: "Price and schedule. Going on time with no delays. Good value for money."
Cons: "Very hard on baggage policy"
Cons: "Priority: advantage only on call. Afterwards no adantage afterwardsroom for hand luggage"
Pros: "Cabin Crew and Pilot did their best"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and landed in Birmingham instead of Luton, due to Luton being closed at midnight"
Cons: "There was a mix up and the Wizz Air website did not work. Therefore, I couldn't check in a get my seats booked. I also could not prepay for my luggage so they overcharged me at the airport and had an attitude about it. My luggage was given three different prices quotes. I am very upset their website didn't work and they ripped me off at the airport."
Cons: "Was delayed on tarmac due to security error, not their error, but they seemed unwilling to at least give people complimentary water or coffee. Cheap airline they are!"
Cons: "Extra fees for baggage and tickets that were not disclosed. The check in was incredibly disorganized. No help was provided with problems."
Cons: "Everything. Worst service I have ever seen on a flight."
Cons: "Arrived at the airport 2 hours before departure, I was not aware you can't checkin at the airport and need to pay 30 euros for it. The treatment and the attitude from the personnel at the check in counter was rude, they were short and unkind The staff member in charge of charging for checking was incredibly slow, there were 4 people in line including me and it took her 40 minutes to charge me the 30 euros This was after I already stood in line for the ticket for another 30 mins I almost missed my flight due to their poor handling"
Pros: "cheap, on time"
Cons: "no reclining chairs, no free water"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The fact that they have small carry on allowance (free) or with a 7cm difference in width a "large carry on" allowance . To be safe I purchase the extra allowance for large carry on which I paid £19 for on my outward journey. When clearing the check-in gates on my outward journey in London the check Inn clerk informed me that I did not have to pay the large carry on allowance. According to her in my bag but it's been classified as small. On my return journey I decided not to purchase the carry on allowance and I was told that I should have purchase it online instead I had to buy it at the airport at a premium. I won't fly with Wizz Air again."
Cons: "Lots of hidden charges."
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."
Cons: "The flight is late from tlv to luton and from luton to tlv."
Pros: "The crew in the plane"
Cons: "The quality of service in the boarding, Modified types of cabine bags, practically you have to bring one change of clothes an nothing else in order to fit for the standards of the "small cabine luggage" . The boarding crew was very rude"
Pros: "The ground crew in Varna were a thousand times better than Luton. Excellent flight and service...even with an hour delay."
Cons: "We arrived at a field in Israel with 2 backpacks and did not charge us extra, but on the way back they decided to charge us at the last minute for the same cases we had arrived with. Nothing we said helped and the attitude was cold and hard. The flight was good"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Very late. Disorganized boarding. Seating and shortage of luggage stowegev"
Pros: "Friendly staff members"
Cons: "They didn't have blanket and it was very cold.."
Pros: "It was simple, every thing was fast in the airport."
Cons: "Small airplane it was a bit choked."
Pros: "The crue was excellent."
Cons: "i was surprised by the high extra charge we have been requested to pay for the suitcases. Wizz attracts clients by offering low prices. while in fact the price is much higher than with other companies. price paid for the suitcases, 235 eur, is an additional ticket. unbleivable. and no one tells us that the extra fees might be as high as the ticket itself. personnaly, in future, i shall avoid flying with wizz and i shall never recommend this company to anybody!"
Everything was okay on this flight. It was on time and I could do the transfer to my next flight to Marseille. I had however problems with the luggage in the second flight. They charged me 45 euros for my my second piece of luggage (it was a small backpack) because I did not have purchased the priority. The backpack was like a handbag. This policy is really unfair!!
Flight boarded very late and then flight took off over 2hrs late. No food and drinks provided at airport despite law. Then before landing in Berlin, crew announced that the flight was so delayed that the airport was closed for landings and flight was diverted to Hanover. Flight crew stated over the PA that buses would be waiting at airport to take passengers to Berlin. In fact, no buses or help was provided and passengers were left looking for their own way to Berlin at 1am, when there were very few options Bad bad bad conduct
Due to Covid-19 checks and paperwork and not being in the EU anyone directions could have been clearer, I saw people who were very nervous and panicky.
Cons: "Barely any covid measures. Brussels airlines uses staggered disembarking. Row per row. Ryanair still does the usual “every man for himself”."
Pros: "I was traveling with a handicap, the staff was very polite, patient and helpful"
Cons: "we were 4 person traveling together and all seats assigned were separeted, including 2 children"
Cons: "The website. It kept going over the same thing and I couldn’t do what I wanted to."
Pros: "The crew on the plain were great"
Cons: "The flight was delied and no one let us know The ground crew wasnt nice at all, even a bit meen..."
Cons: "There was a delay of 2 hours when the boarding du"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Give free water"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good leg room."
Cons: "Magazine racks on back of seats would have been good."
Pros: "Easy trip. Crew relaxed, short flight."
Cons: "The process of getting on the flight is the most exhausting part: distance to Terminal 1, multiple screenings and checks, then another long bus ride to the plane. The flight itself was is the easiest part at this airport."
Pros: "Very affordable fares"
Cons: "Boarding, it was very chaotic. They had people paying for baggage fees at the gate and the credit card machines were not working."
Pros: "The frew was nice"
Cons: "When I made the reservation, I paid 20 Euro for 1 suitcase (20 kg.), but was surprised to realize that the payment was not valid for the whole trip (but only for one flight). I had to pay 40 Euro for the flight back. It could be helpful if you'd clarify this as part of the reservation process."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Dirty and broken tables, no cary on luagge only back pack, very smelly food, and small seats and little legroom!"
Cons: "Check in"
Pros: "Flight took off on time"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Thete is nothing really good in low cost flight, so if you are not expecting you will not be disappointed. Recommend purchase the priority package in advance and allowed to bring two items on board."
Pros: "Helpful staff especially with disabled access."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife despite booking months ago. Very cramped conditions on a very full flight meant it was uncomfortable Bought our own food onboard as realised everything was charged for. Even water."
Cons: "Poor check in Service ... bullying. Paid 40 Euro each for 3 extra bags .... website extremely unclear. Plane had to return after taxiing to let ‘unwell passenger ‘ off. No other ongoing explanation... took an hour to get him off ! Felt quite unsafe ! Had to ask if they retrieved his bag ."
Pros: "Vluchten waren mooi op tijd. Voor deze low cost service kan ik alleen positief zijn."
Cons: "Their staff not helpful on desk Asked them the question how to get boarding code pass barely answered"
Pros: "Just the Flight crew...They were ok..."
Cons: "They kept saying my suitcase didnot fit the overhead compartment. I saw so many people with the same size bag...that didnot pay. I flew from Rome to Greece, back to Rome and, Lisbon Back And forth. I will think twice next time...When I fly to Europe next year..Flying Ryanair."
Cons: "Tutto in ritardo anche afumicino abblamo aspetato oiu di 2ore per le bagali.la partenza in ritardo,e poi abbuamo viaggiato piu di 4ore"
Cons: "Sat on the plane for 1:30 due to delays and missing our departure slot then to be informed that there was no water ,drinks or any food on the plane due to “supply issues”. Then the conveyor system to broke down at East Midlands and all the cases had to be moved into the collection area by had by 2 security staff All in all 3 hours later for the booked taxi and didn’t arrive home till 4am ! Never had such a bad experience with Ryanair and East Midlands airport"
Cons: "We did not realize that we had to check in within a minimum of 2 hours before the flight or else you have to pay this ridiculous fee. They were unable to do anything us at the counter and we had to go to this separate line that was very line in order to pay this massive fee. Their emails were not clear on this policy at all and you should be able to do it at the Ryanair counter vs go to another line. It was very convoluted and not a great customer experience. I wish somebody warned me of this policy as we almost missed an entire day in Santorini."
Pros: "Short flight Flight itself is cheap Plane ok"
Cons: "Could not seat with my partner - it looks as if it is done on purpose so that people will pay Also - the price for the suitcase is outrages and much too expensive"
Cons: "Flight delay, everything costs money, even a glass of water. I never will fly with them"
Pros: "The price of the ticket"
Cons: "Nothing!! No place for the legs, minimum !!!! No option to move the seat back !! All the flight the light was On"
Pros: "price and schedule were very fine on time pleasant staff"
Cons: "they changed their onboard bag policy was changed several times between our purchase of tickets and flight date , poor policy and customer relations"
Pros: "Flight was delayed, very late notice given to were stuck and couldnt get out. Bus took us to the plane and were waiting for 20 mins in a bus while the plane was unload with previous passanger, fueled, cleaned etc!!!! Overall got 2h delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, very late notice given to were stuck and couldnt get out. Bus took us to the plane and were waiting for 20 mins in a bus while the plane was unload with previous passanger, fueled, cleaned etc!!!!"
Cons: "1. I brought a trolley according to the specifications in the web page and the message sent to me. They claim it was too big, even though it did fit into the box they use to measure the luggage, saying that it fitted too tight, and insisted on my paying an extra 50 euro. 2. They purposely split family members in the hope that people will pay extra to sit together. We did it on the first leg, but then managed to switch seats without extra cost in the second leg. It just required several people switching around."
Pros: "best food and drinks best clubs"
Pros: "Low price"
Cons: "delay of 1:30."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Flying shop"
Pros: "The crew traveling out of Rome was pleasant is the only thing positive I can say."
Cons: "-we paid extra for priority boarding and did go through the line first to board the shuttle to the plane but then they had everyone else from the overbooked plane crowded like sardines into the same shuttle. It was a waste of money. -traveling to Rome on Ryanair we took samsonite carry on luggage onto the plane with no problems. Leaving Rome we were told to recheck our luggage size. The wheels stick out a little and they made us pay 100 Euros to check our bags. Once on the plane we saw many passengers with luggage and bags much larger than our own and did not have to pay to have them checked. We were the only Americans on the plane. -The seats do not recline and are at a 90 degree angle which is very uncomfortable for a 3 hour flight. -the crew traveling to Rome was very rude. -the seats were dirty with food and crumbs before I sat down and there was trash and food on the floor. It is as if the plane is not cleaned routinely."
Pros: "Ryanair was a great surprise. I am 1.79 in height the seats were not cramped, yes they do"
Pros: "Fast accurate on time and proffesional"
Cons: "Arrival is horrific"
Pros: "Simple budget flight. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Unexpected manual checking of bag into hold. I hadn't packed with that in mind and was concerned about breakage and the fact that my bag had no lock. But the bag survived intact."
Cons: "Late , expensive, loud, no leg room seat do not tilt !"
Pros: "There is a large lounge at the gate at Gatwick that the passengers could have been checked into prior to boarding commencing, but this was not used. Instead, A large queue was in place for over 40 minutes and once boarding commenced, as many were checking cabin bags into the hold, boarding took about 30 minutes, delaying the flight by 30 minutes"
Pros: "departure time"
Cons: "no water to drink"
Pros: "Flight was on time. People were friendly. Plane was clean."
Cons: "They send repeated emails pushing you to upgrade your seat or to pay for your carry-ons. They try to scare you into spending more money. I received several emails stating I would have to pay higher fees to check my carry-on at the gate. I opted not to pay as they insisted so I was worried the entire trip. Was not charged at the gate as the emails started. They have good prices on Sears but try to make it up in fees."
Pros: "The ticket was cheap and to an airport that had easy access to public transportation."
Cons: "I found out later that I had to print out my ticket or face a 50 euro fee and they do not give free water on the flight."
It became a standard of this company to delay it's scheduled flights by hours! One to two days in advance, a notice of one hour delay is issued, then - at the airport, another 2 to 3 hours are occurring, at our outbound as well on our incoming flights. Be advised that this is to be expected. Furthermore - do not expect any transparency or explanation or just pure information from the company's reps on location, nor any other compensation or just a coupon for a snack or drink. It's probably just not part of the company's relation with it's clients.
Pros: "Lousy service"
Cons: "Free light drinks"
Pros: "New aircraft, had a VOD service in your own device, also optional paid WiFi. We were offered water during the flight. The price was good and everything went smooth."
Cons: "Security in PRG airport is done at the gate - after the duty free shops, so there's no way to go back. No toilet or water fountain at the gate area after security - only a vending machine is available and benches. You can bring liquids bought in the duty free shops only if you ask at the cashier to get it packed in a special bag. That's probably not the airlines fault, but it is something to note when departing from PRG. The check in process is also very slow, that is due to Israeli security questioning, the line gets all around the terminal."
Cons: "It was a terrible flight in most of the citiries"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and flight was comfortable. Leg room fine. They turned off lights so we could sleep."
Cons: "Seats could use a bit more padding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed more than 2 hours."
Cons: "Arkia changed there flight hour and no one updated me. I almost missed the flight. It was messed"
Pros: "The crew was nice It was ok for a short flight"
Cons: "There was a big delay and the airport boards weren’t updated The plan is small"
Cons: "There was a delay in flying The service was terrible And the airplane is old and uncomfortable. The flight attendants did not relate and really gave the feeling unpleasant"
Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "delay in tack off of 3 hrs without air conditioner and food"
Cons: "The delayed in departure"
Pros: "boarding is terrible, luggage was damaged, staff is unfriendly."
Cons: "Arkia replaced and sold the flight to other company . Seats were very very uncomfortable. the service was bad . boarding took lots of time ."
Cons: "Arkia airline was replaced by chezc low cost air lie . the gap between seats were the worst ever . the seat i front of you was on my knees . could not move the legs . boarding was late . boardinf anf disambarcking were by busses and not direct to airport !!!! low cost - no !! Its a fraud - we paid for regular Arkia flight and ended up with low low low service !!!!!"
Pros: "Good price, nice crew, on time. Pay less? Don't expect much."
Cons: "Very old plan, small seats, poor website (manage your trip)"
Pros: "CHECK IN"
Cons: "NOT COMFORTABLE SITS"
Cons: "מושב בו ישבתי היה גרוע כיסאות בשורה 14. מה זה הדבר הזה כסא ללא יכולת כיוון"
Cons: "I was hospitalized and had to change the travel dates. Arkia refused to change my travel dates even though it was 2 weeks before the initial flight."
Pros: "the mail about the schedule Update prevents wasted time in the airport If you had sent an e-mail on the second delay we would have stay at the hotel and not falling asleep on the carpets in a cold, closed airport."
Cons: "There was another delay after the timing update, it would be nice if you could update it again. A night out at a cold airport , all the shops closed is really unpleasant. In the plane there were not enough blankets for all three of us! and it was very cold all the flight. When we turned to the staff they told us they were sorry and the blankets run out ... They could not find us even one blanket we could share..."
Pros: "The mail about the delay"
Cons: "3 hours delay Leaking AC Delay on arrival-waiting on ground for available spot in airport and finally being transferred via busse which took another 20 min. Very loud and annoying noise during flight (and I had my share of flights...)"
Cons: "Food had to be specially requested and was not given automatically as customary. So I almost missed the meal."
Cons: "We (me, one pregnant wife and two kids) had to wait 2:40h in line for check-in in spite we arrived 3 hours prior to departure to the airport. There was no way to do the check-in online. Security have asked everyone to open their suitcases before depositing them in the check-in. After check-in we had to run through the airport to the gate as check-in completed only 20 minutes before departure. Because of the line and the lack of online check-in we got lousy seats at the end of the plane. The flight itself was lousy as well. It was a night flight but there was light for most of the flight and noise due to the insistency on serving cold sandwiches. After landing we had to wait more than an hour to get the luggage. One of the worst flights ever!"
Pros: "The crew was great . I was seated on Exit seat . long legs ."
Cons: "to noisy . especially all the selling of duty free goods ."
Pros: "Efficient, quick check-in, quick boarding. This 50-minute flight will save you 4 hours of driving at least!"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful. The airplane was clean."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in spite the flight duration was more than 4 hours. The food was cold sandwiches in stale buns. Boarding was not well organized and was done in busses. Flight was 15 minutes delayed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, and above all the luggage was not board on the plane. This was however said to us after the plane was boarded and on the way up!!! That is when we also heard we are landing in Rhodos on the way to Tel Aviv to refuel the plane because of a technical thing which they knew even before the flight. So the flight was few hours longer. The plane was old and with this "error" you get to pray you ll even reach your destination. . Food? No good on the flight, only water to drink. You can buy something from the free shop while flying!!! Afterwards we had to wait for our luggage for 6 days being told it is gonna be delivered to us every day. Unless you have nerves to spare and you wanna argue a lot, and I mean A LOT, do not fly with this company!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Food really bad. Delayed. Old plain."
Pros: "The stuff were nice after we left..."
Cons: "We ordered the flight 3 months ago. A week before the flight, after all of our plans were booked, we received email about 2 hours delay! When we arrived to the airport, we discovered that the flight is operated by other company (Travel Service) and when we arrived to the boarding gate, we discovered that there is another delay because the airplane arrived late! Another 60 minutes delay, we landed around 23:00,and basically - it ruined the first days of our trip, since we made plans according to 19:30 landing !"
Cons: "I got to the airport and I was stranded because there was no such flight please credit my account immediately. I also called several times before hand to confirm my flight and was sent emails with the same ticket information. And incredibly rude customer service. I also had to re-purchase a new ticket from another airlines, which I also believe in good faith you should pay, to make up for the incredible inconvenience you put me through."
Cons: "Check up security was extremely bais...... and un human with way they did their security checks. Unacceptable and time consuming. My personal belongs that was suppose to come with my hand loggage they obligated me to go in my check in loggage. The danger to that is that third parties could touch my belongings or even break carting the bag to one side to another.."
Pros: "aircon worked well, boarding was easy"
Cons: "half the flight was children and they were not quiet. There was lost of screaming and crying"
Pros: "Atentive and nice crew"

Cons: "vayama are the worst booker ever. i have never received such unprofessional service in my life. i never thought it could exist and i come from israel."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours and they were not keeping us updated, the plane was so outdated and old the seats were horrible, the food was beyond awful, and it was also not an arkia plane it was another small random airline's plane....overall the experience was NOT GOOD"
Cons: "The fact that there was no online checkin :/"
Pros: "Great customer service. They changed our flight without any questions. Smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was very nice."
Cons: "Terrible food - you offer one sandwich for a 5 hour flight? If this is a low-cost then at least offer the opportunity to buy food.. Overcrowded plane - this is a very old plane, no space to move, and boy it was crowded."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "The drinks"
Cons: "Ground support for landing in tlv is horrible waiting for bus outside plane for a long time even thouh flight was on time"
Cons: "Plane was delayed by two hours"
Cons: "1) the flight delayed 2) the aircraft is old and so dense 3) the crew messing with things that i didnt experience in other flights, like telling me to remove the headphones while take-off and landing. 4) the meal was very poor 5) no Entertainment at all and this is international flight! (4 hours) the overall felling was bad... i wont but another arkia flight"
