Pros: "I always prefer international travel because there is always better service, storage for luggage and of course: food! It’s the old standard of flying. Too bad it only happens across oceans. The experience of flying in a Dreamliner was pretty cool in coach, first class looked more like the dream. Quite a massive difference!"

Pros: "Good service, comfortable aircraft and very good info entertainment"

Pros: "The food during the flight is very poor and especially the breakfast. I really expect to get better food . It's even worse in the business clas."
Pros: "Crew were helpful most of the time."
Cons: "Seating was very poor. The five of our groups where seated in different location, despite booking together as a group."

Cons: "They said boarding would start at 5:45 but didn't actually start until 6:10"

Cons: "The crew was very rude. the boarding was done by new staff, they look like Saudis, he didn't know anything and took half an hour too make the boarding, there was a long queue behind us, and it was cleared by an Asian staff who was very fast. The guy spent time joking with friends and asking for every step before we become suddenly the last people in the queue to finish their boarding."
Pros: "Very long delay. About 3hrs."
Pros: "Crew are professional and courteous."
Pros: "Professional and safe"
Cons: "Better boarding (lines too long)"
Pros: "Is a case of what didn’t I like. When you fly low budget just expect surprises. The small prints are terrible clauses and you will never know when they will get you. Today I was charged £25 on the spot by WIZZ AIR at the boarding gate, even if I disagreed with the charges, I wasn’t prepared to miss my flight W61301 from Warsaw to Luton. There is a degree of unfairness with these impromptu and extra charges. I came on the same flight with the same bag and there was no hassle. I was a soft target and whilst I had no problem with the flight and the service provided, I will not recommend @wizzair. I felt the extra charge was a con."
Cons: "WIZZ Air need to be sensible. I travelled from London to Warsaw without any problem and they made a problem on my way back.!"
Pros: "One of the very rare on-time, efficient and smooth flights with Wizzair. Check-in was fairly quick and incident-free, despite some of the other passengers reporting problems with the procedures and the staff. Boarding was quick and the flight actually arrived 10 minutes earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "As usual, the cabin crew is adequately polite, but not overly friendly, the food & beverage range is mediocre and overpriced at best and the entertainment is virtually non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was late abolutnie 1 hour"
Pros: "Good airport . Punctual flight ."
Cons: "Changing in luggage information was annoying"
Cons: "Never announced for non-priority boarding, so many people were late to flight, causing delays. Much less than minimum leg room required for any normal human. Sat bolt upright with front seat digging into knees for 3 hours. Far from the cheapest ticket, but totally no frills, no food, no entertainment, limited baggage. Wizz Air mobile app barely works when required (for boarding passes, etc) Not enough room in overheads for all the carry on they allowed, had to sit with bag and jacket on my lap for flight, as no room under seat either."
Cons: "I had priority and my partner who did not was on plane first! My suitcase was miles away from me (what caused delays on getting out) because next to my seat was not empty slots! After the bus took us to plane crew did not allowed us to use rare entrance (I was seat 37!)! That was chaos!"
Pros: "Everything went to plan and we were very happy"
Pros: "Clean aircraft with good on board staff. Flight departed on time and arrived early. Overall they are good value for a low cost carrier."
Cons: "Wizz are a bit disorganised at bag check in, disorganised with overhead storage. Don't like the random seat assignment used if you don't want to pay the high price for assigned seats."
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 air hosts and hostesses were very polite and courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour which meant we missed a connecting bus journey. The space in the seat is very limited and cramped, I was very uncomfortable in the chair with my knees pushed into the back of the seat in front. I am 6ft 1in which is tall but not that tall. Anyone taller might not be able to get into the seat at all. There was a problem with the website so we couldn't check in online and we had tried to change our flight a few days earlier but the website again didn't work, we tried to call a call centre whose number was on there, didn't work."
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"
Cons: "Not even a roll for a 5 hour flight! They ran out and then wanted to charge £3.50 for a coffee when they ran out of food to even buy! Staff were not friendly at all."
Pros: "Crew nice,seats ok"
Cons: "Expensive hold luggage,rip off"
Pros: "i was able to use their app to download my boarding pass so didn't need to look for somewhere to print my boarding pass while abroad, boarding went well, flight was good and crew was good, seat was comfortable, so overall i was pleased with everything. Thank you for a good experience."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Couldn’t check in online. Got to airport to be told I couldn’t fly because fully booked. Still here in Macedonia. The earliest they could fly me back is Tuesday. Absolutely disgusting , fuming !!!!"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The staff took ages boarding us because they were obsessed with trying to scalp people for exceeding baggage limits. Nothing free aboard, no entertainment, the seats were uncomfortable too."
Cons: "Extra charges. £35 to check bags in"
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: "It flies direct to the airport that I wanted to go to."
Cons: "Little space. Legroom & hand baggage (which had to go in hold). Family of four were not seated together. Cabin pressure change made child ill (my phone has a pressure sensor and I could see the change in pressure trigger a desire to vomit). It should be transitioned more slowly."
Pros: "Flight was delayed. I missed my train home to Ipswich. Long journey home ver late at night"
Pros: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."
Cons: "2 hours delay. Not much one can do about this. The flight was good in general, 3* only due to the delay."
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: "Quick to board, smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "On night flights woken up to serve drinks and given flying details from the pilot. Great in the day but would rather be left and not disturbed at night!"
Cons: "standing 1 hour in the bus before boarding,than telling you that will be 90 minutes late take off"
Pros: "The staff and flight were top knotch . Could not fault them ."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike ."
Pros: "Quickest in & out procedure at both BUD and LTN in a long time and a super pretty flight attendant."
Cons: "Black group seemed to be singled out for more than one bag hand luggage but others were not. They were the only black group on the plane. Others let through with more bags 1ith no question."
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"
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: "Arrived only slightly delayed"
Cons: "They made my boyfriend pay 35 gbp for a case 5 cams longer than their stipulation. Yet, lots of other passengers didn't have to pay. Sheer discrimination. Crew is unfriendly and refused to help me place my bag in over head locker. Really poor professional s"
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."
Pros: "New aircraft"
Cons: "Boarding was horrendous. Flight was late in."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Told our bag was too big even though we'd paid for a large carry on, which we already knew fit in the overhead compartment (plane was an airbus A320). We were then required to check our bags, but not until after we were told to combine our personal item with our large carry on bag & then told that it was too big. instead of crediting us the amount we'd already paid (€20), we were charged the full checked bag fee of €55. The gate agent was also very rude and not proficient at her job, causing us to delay the plane's departure. Exceptional customer service may have included refunding us the large carry on bag fee. Additionally, our 2hr flight cost us almost $200 each, not what I would call a budget airline price. We will not be flying Wizz air again & do not recommend this airline."
Pros: "It was quite good at boarding, quick and efficient (from/to)."
Cons: "So noisy flight. I have never flown before in a such a noisy flight. Totally nightmare! Kids screaming and yelling and parents couldn't handle the situation all passengers were looking. Crew didn't ask if they need any help.."
Pros: "The plane and crew from Pilots to Flight staff more than perfect. We was kept informed all the way as take off was perfect, and the landing at London Luton was the best have ever had as you normally land land then get an extra hard heavy jerk to slow us down extra hard braking. The Pilots of W6 4503 on 23rd of August 2017 is a credit to your company as they landed without the extra hard braking you normally get. Those pilots both of them should teach the other pilots's of your company how both of the pilots did it, and even teach other airline pilots the same IT WAS A VERY SMOOTH LANDING. Give the pilot's a commendation or an award as I would like those pilot's on any of my flights I have in the future. You can let them know it was me that told you to credit them in the highest award they can get please. Let their bosses, and company owners know this as well. So maybe if you call them in the office for something PLEASE CREDIT THEM for the PERFECT LANDING MORE THAN A CREDIT TO YOUR COMPANY as I put that ion bold to enforsize a perfect landing."
Cons: "I was in 24B middle seat which was very cramped as the seat too small and back of seat too low, knee area not enough, no chance of getting to sleep as you cannot get comfortable enough as you cannot even sleep on the tray, kids screaming all around me, people behind me kept kicking moving my seat, people in front of me too loud Bulgarian's. At Varna airport me and others queued up in check in 2 and 3 patiently, and after about 20 minutes queuing two people jumped the queue in check in 1 as the second guy I had to tell him we have been waiting you cannot jump the queue and to go to the back of the queue, and a guy walked straight into check in 1 before check in 2 and 3 was opened and got his bag done, and a big group of people with prams etc was not even in check in lane 1 where they was sorted out well before us queuing as they just turned up and got there bag etc slips on the prams etc. A lot of the information on board was in Bulgarian and not in English only a very small thing NOT TO BLAME THE PLANE STAFF in any way."
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: "Flight was on time unlike outward trip which was just under 2 hrs late"
Cons: "Very rude boarding staff on ground. Tried to charge me for the hand luggage but did put a small luggage sticker on when I didn't respond. Seats do not recline so most people slept on the pull down tray as a pillow."
Pros: "The ground crew in Varna were a thousand times better than Luton. Excellent flight and service...even with an hour delay."
Pros: "We landed in one piece"
Cons: "I didn't receive my online check in details so I couldn't check in. I was abroad so chasing up details I should have been provided with / were never told that I should have, were not on the top of my to do list. I only found out that I had to check in online and that I hadn't been provided with these details when I arrived at the airport. I spent 30 minutes on hold before the problem was rectified and I was given my online check in details but it was now top late to check in online (by 5 minutes ). The flight was delayed due to a number of things - a late arrival, people being let onto the plane slowly, people not sitting down and allowing the plane to taxi and leave. This had a knock on effect of making the plane land late and for me to miss my connection (train) so basically through last minute.com not providing me with the correct details regarding the flight and the flight then being delayed it tripled my whole journey back home."
Pros: "Pleasant staff and good flight"
Cons: "A bit of difficulty to check bag in online after original check in ...."
Pros: "I use Wizzair very often .flight is always good.Pilots and crew are very well experianced.so if turbulences there is still trust in flight crew .today is very misty and cloudy in London .Very good landing in these bad conditions.i want to Thank all team of the crew."
Cons: "Turbulences.It is sad that wizzair charges very high cost large cabin bags (especially on holidays time is bags different price than other months.)but other companies as Easyjet and ryanair allows one big and one small bag for free on board"
Pros: "Horrible company never book with them"
Cons: "No hand luggage Normal luggage is the most expensive in the market ! No customer services ! Do ur self a fav and don't book it"
Pros: "The journey took less than it supposed to. Amazing service"
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: "Staff were friendly, when they weren't trying you charge you for everything"
Cons: "I've flown on dozens of airlines, and Wizz Air has to be one of the absolute worst in terms of arbitrary and punitive charges. I managed to avoid them, but you never know when they'll give you a €30 fee because your shoelaces are too long."
Cons: "Just perfect and on time"
Cons: "The boarding Schdule"
Cons: "Comfort and food"
Pros: "Checked luggage included, seat reservations are fairly priced, in flight meals and snacks are reasonable. Crew is professional."
Cons: "It was hot in the plane, probably cranked up the cabin heat to 25°C :)"
Pros: "Cheap ticket prices"
Cons: "Bad in plane services Very bad in payments Lake of latest aviation regulations"
Pros: "There’s a decent amount of room for a budget carrier. No nickel and dime charges like some similar carriers."
Cons: "Seats don’t lean back and felt tight width wise. Lots of busses involved."
Pros: "I may never travel with this airline"
Cons: "I hate traveling with this airline I couldnt sleep or rest During jurny the sttaff we were disturbing , there attention was how to purchase there meal and do there busines with out thinking about the thime and the passangers condation The tiolet was in abad condation and i couldnt use it"
Pros: "Comfortable flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "seats are not comfortable at all"
Pros: "The first leg of my trip was good."
Cons: "Pegasus first changed my 2hr layover to 24hrs then cancelled my second flight entirely without informing me. I was unable to rebook an alternative flight as they require the vendor, pricline to sort it out and priceline can only communication is email. So maybe in a week they'll sort it out. It is a totally ridiculous and irresponsible situation for these businesses to create. I had to buy a whole new ticket to reach my destination. People at the Pegasus desk at the airport were beyond unhelpful and I've spent hours on the phone while on vacation trying to sort it out."
Cons: "The company could have alerted of the 25€ you have to pay for stepping out of the airport."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Too much waiting for boarding and staff was not friendly"
Pros: "Flight timing was good"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit complicated"
Pros: "Bording was fast and the plane took off on time."
Cons: "Pegasus cannot fly without a dalay of at least 1 hour !!!"
Pros: "price. flight. comfort. convenience"
Pros: "Unfortunately, it's impossible to find a single positive thing to mention. I'd gladly pay more if needed and never fly with them"
Cons: "I took 4 flights with this airline. Each was at least an hour late in take offs and landings. Very unfriendly staff whether at the check-in or flight attendants. Incredibly uncomfortable seats (compared with same level seats with other airlines). They reminded me with outdoor vegetable and fruit markets where farmers and gypsies yell to sell their products; they charge for everything, offering nothing on a 4 hrs flight, not even water. Not sure if it is a language barrier, but they are very rude and impolite in English. I really wish there was a single good thing to say. Even the pilots are the worst i've seen. Very rough landing every single time"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Oh wow there’s a long list: -flight was late -no food or drinks were offered -seats were dirty -plane was dirty -staff spoke very limited English -every single food we ordered was “sold out” -credit. At cpayments we’re not accepted -toilets were not clean I could continue but the above suffices."
Pros: "It got me there safely"
Cons: "No free drinking water and it wasn't that cheap of a flight to say it a budget airline."
Cons: "Late Irritably staff No food"
Cons: "Almost one hour delay to board and take off!!!"
Pros: "The flight was delayed, presumably due to weather conditions"
Cons: "Flight got delayed Grumpy crow Seats not comfortable"
Cons: "Airline stuff was bad in palne which not care about undisable boy was travel with me"
Cons: "The none sense of explaining why I cant go on the plane ... according to there website I should have 2 stamps from the lebaniese authority on my passport one for going in and one for going out which I gladly provide them with... the responsoable for the check in at Frankfurt Airport and according to him was communicating with "pegasus Airline" in Istanbul by WhatsApp and just kept saying "those can't fly today" the funny thing he was writing in german and refuse to give me there number so I can explain the situation now the main reason why i couldn't go on the plane because I wasn't once in my life in Turkei which makes none sense according to there website I contacted them with Emails and they answered me that I should have the 2 stamps if i want to fly from Instanboul to Beirut which I already have but the haven't notice that i didnt even got ob the plane at the 1st place .... the huge amount of nobe sense, stupidity, the lying that there is no Pegasus airline office ath the airport and the 0 responsibility for there actions can provide you guys with a picture of how they behave with the customers"
Pros: "As long as they are reverting a cheap ticket then the service is good"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane was HOT. It must have been 24 degrees or more the entire flight. I turned the fan on full but it was useless. I was hot uncomfortable and sweaty the entire time I was on the plane. Made what would otherwise have been a short and enjoyable flight extremely unpleasant."
Cons: "the flight was delayed without telling us why we were late from our next flight"
Pros: "We did an error in booking the return date, & found no point of contact to change the date"
Pros: "got there safely and on tıme"
Cons: "no free food, as usual."
Pros: "The seats were not too tight and the food is not extensively expensive"
Cons: "No Internet access at Istanbul airport which isahugh issue nowadays!"
Pros: "This is a budget airlines, compare to Ryanair seats Pegasus Airlines seats has more leg room, especially I have long legs I need more leg room."
Cons: "I know this is a Turkish airline, but the cabin crew could do with a bit more understanding of English"
Pros: "Good price, times of flights worked for what I wanted"
Cons: "Transfer between flights was on a short timescale and I received several warnings from pegasus about delays at the airport, because of this I purchased a fast track via their site. This was a total waste of money as there was only one Peterson dealing with fast track and long queues, this meant that ordinary queue was dealt with faster."
Pros: "Reasonable for the price paid"
Cons: "It is impossible to get an invoice. I have sent emails to all available addresses but I've get nothing till today."
Cons: "This experience was absolutely horrible for my wife and myself both. We understood that being among the more "budget friendly" airlines, we would have to sacrifice some comfort. But this airline is beyond atrocious to say the least. There is no terminal exit, but rather we had to walk down steps from the plane, walk in the rain to a stand-up bus, and ride it to the airport. How on earth are you supposed to make close connecting flights with those conditions? We barely made it only because they let us skip the line for security. Save yourself the misery; dig deeper in your pocket for a better airline."
Cons: "I was delayed in London, and thus missed my subsequent flights to Ankara and to Erbil. Arriving in Istanbul, there was a massive crowd at the transit desk with two Pegasus agents. They spoke little English and did not attempt to create an orderly queue. Instead, they were helping random people. Given that persons on the delayed flight were losing potential time to catch other flights, it was extremely unprofessional and rude to go about managing the issue in this way. I was quite exasperated and was told to calm down by Pegasus officials. Ultimately, I was delayed for one DAY, and forced to flight out the next night at midnight. If Pegasus had been consistent in managing passengers from a delayed flight, I could potentially have gone on to my final destination without a 24 hour delay."
Pros: "The seats are not narrow."
Cons: "I am guessing this company does clean their aircraft only once in a while. In both of my flights between Istanbul and Amsterdam, the airplane was not cleaned off of the previous flight's trash. When I was seated in my first flight to Amsterdam, my tray had a lot of stains of food and drinks. Not a pleasant sight! In my flight back to Istanbul, I had to travel looking at a former passenger's waste, such as a used napkin tissue, stuck to the handle of the seat, and a chocolate package. I also have to say that the sinks of the bathrooms do not drain properly, so you, actually, cannot leave the place clean for the next person. All in all, this company definitely needs to work on the cleanliness of their aircraft. Thank you!"
Cons: "I was stopped at both airports for not having my ticket in the system although I checked-in in advance and paid extra for seating; it was very stressful and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Crew lacks professionalism and courtesy. Distance, between rows, is small, a few cms (5-7) more, will bring great benefit. The bathroom was dirty and out of paper, towards the end of the flight. It wasn't very clean to star with."
Pros: "They got me to my destination... eventually"
Cons: "Oh, boy. First, this flight was super late and they wouldn't admit it. I went to the gate at boarding time, and the staff rudely pushed me away, saying I misunderstood the gate number. I double checked, and no, that was indeed the right gate. This lasted until the airport announced the final boarding call for my flight, and people started lining up.Then the staff had to admit that this was the right gate and the plane was just late. We didn't start boarding until way after the announced time (which they didn't bother to update on the screen until it passed. Extraordinarily disorganized. Second, the flight crew was loud and kept the lights turned way up on an overnight flight. Everyone around me was trying to sleep, and they were woken up by the crew yelling "DO YOU WANT COFFEE?" 5 rows away. Even when they finally dimmed the lights 3 hours into the flight, they kept the Tv's on, so the flashing advertisements prevented me from sleeping restfully. Third, you have to pay for coffee and tea. Who does this? They also begin their flight with loud, obnoxious music that jolts everyone awake (see above for this being an overnight flight). Overall, only choose this airline if you're okay with being kept forcibly awake and you don't mind the flight being late. Oh, and you have 2 euros to pay for simple tea."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and that's normal for them I guess .. worst cabin crew ever."
Pros: "smile of 1 crow chair not bad"
Cons: "timing check in boarding landing I had 2 flights and both we boarded late and arrived late of course. I will never use this air lines again in my life"
Pros: "The crew rushed us to the next Pegasus flight (Istanbul to Beirut) so that we made it on time."
Cons: "The flight departed nearly an hour late after idling on the tarmac. All food is for purchase. There is no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight was canceled only after checking in and going through immigration. I am stuck in limbo due to visa expired and can not go back into Dubai. Had to remain inside departure terminal by gate for 18 hours. Ended up rebooking flight with another airline and delaying my arrival into Turkey by two days."
Cons: "The problems began around 2 am on 12-July at the Dubai airport. Our flight, originally scheduled for 4:20 am, was delayed until 6am. I attempted to inquire with the Pegasus staff about the flight delay, and what this would mean for my connection, but no staff were even available at the airport (all check-in activities etc were handled by airport staff). Even after the flight got delayed again until 7am, there were no Pegasus staff available to speak with. The Dubai airport staff assured me that someone was on their way to speak with the passengers, and that since our connecting flights were also on Pegasus, they would be sure to hold the flights for us. We were told that we would definitely make our connections. When we asked about the reason for the delay and to speak with a Pegasus staff member, we were told by airport staff that the Pegasus team had been called repeatedly and nobody was picking up the phone. There was a supervisor that was somewhere in the airport, and they had been told that she would be coming to the information desk to speak with passengers, but I waited for 2 hours for her and she never showed up. We were given no information on why the flight was delayed and what the plan was for our connections. Even at the gate there was not a single Pegasus staff member to assist us. We finally arrived in Istanbul and were directed to the transfer desk, where the Pegasus staff were rude, physically forceful (pushing and shoving), and could not communicate in English. The entire situation was extremely upsetting. Nobody was apologizing for the misinformation or lack of accountability. Nobody simply said, "I'm sorry." I was continuously shouted at in Turkish, I was pushed by Pegasus staff. I was simply trying to find out if my flight had left and if I could be rebooked on another flight. They were insistent that there was one flight a day and they could not book me on an alternative airline. For me, this meant that I missed an important meeting in Germany that afternoon, and that I had to forfeit money that I had put down for a hotel in Hamburg (Euros 124). They told everyone that the flights had left and that we should go upstairs to the hotel desk. However, even to do this, I was forced to purchase a visa (USD 30) to go through passport control. Pegagus has not reimbursed me for these expenses, despite emails, speaking to a supervisor at the Istanbul airport, and filing a complaint in the portal online. Again, at the hotel transfer desk, the staff was rude and unhelpful. We were treated like animals to be herded, and not like humans. Needless to say, I will never be flying with Pegasus again, and I will not be recommending it to anyone. The treatment of paying customers was horrible, and the service was terrible."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, plane was clean and tidy."
Cons: "People were able to bring on oversized checkin luggage which reduced cabin space and forced people to gate check."
Cons: "Seats look congested. The noise of plane was very high which is not like others. I m frequent flyer even I travelled with Pegasus in November last year 2015 for Istanbul. Maintenance of plane to reduce the noise"
Pros: "The crew was great and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Seats were a little tough."
Cons: "If Ukraine airlines EVER leave on time it would be a miracle!! Every time..."
Pros: "no comments"
Cons: "it is better to mention in the ticket whether it is with or without baggage , it makes a lot of inconvenience when we see the boarding pass and then go to the counter to pay extra baggage . the passenger came with one baggage from Kharkov and on a return it is without baggage on round trip booking ?"
Pros: "On time and luggage made it with no problems"
Cons: "Was great fligh, no hazzle"
Cons: "We were subjected by desk attendant Ravoni to buy a second suitcase bc he would not allow us to take our personal items. He was impolite and aggressive."
Pros: "Speedy service and quick boarding."
Cons: "One of the crew hit and ran the food cart into my knee. Didn’t even bother apologizing."
Pros: "We waited in line and on the aircraft after boarding for an hour because we were waiting for flight documentation or something??? This should not happen, everyone knew when the flight was leaving and the airline should have all of this taken care of ahead of time."
Cons: "Is not comfortable plane also old .I never had again Ukrainem airlenes"
Cons: "So many UIA flights are delayed on the same time. I do not know why."
Pros: "0 comma by the airline on what to expect and why"
Pros: "Flight was good"
Cons: "I went to desk for check in and they told me l have to pay 15 euro because that l didn’t check in on line before l get to the airport. They wouldn’t check and give me boarding pass till l paid 15 euro. Horrible airline. After that they wanted to charge us for food and drinks on a international flight. Never again !!!!"
Pros: "The flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "We fly a lot. But this was our first time flying UIA. Thank goodness it occurred to me to do the online check-in (which, by the way, did not work from my phone; I had to ask the hotel lobby to lend me a computer) because they charge you a fee if you do not arrive with a printed boarding pass. They also weigh your hand luggage and if it is over 7kg (which is nothing!) they force you to pay 70 euro to check it in. We had to pay 140 euro for our 2 check-in bags anyway, because apparently the tickets we bought did not include check-in luggage. Mind you, when I booked our flight nowhere did it indicate I would need to pay for luggage, and when I did the online check-in it also did not state I should or could pay for luggage. Other passengers said that their flight to Lviv included their checked bags, but they got charged for the luggage when flying back out of Lviv. One young man who was already ready to board was told to go back out to check in his hand luggage because it was too heavy (although he had already been allowed through to security with his hand luggage)... and the “scientific” method for showing it was too heavy was the man at the gate simply lifting it and deciding it was past the limit. The lady at the info counter, when we had to pay for our luggage, was extremely rude; in my husband’s words, she was “uniquiley unqualified for a position involving customer service”. So... the ticket itself from Lviv to Kraków might have been affordable, but the airline finds creative ways to make you pay through your nose. We would have actually saved money (and stress) by booking a direct flight with a different airline (or taking the train!). Hopefully UIA will ”get with the times” and become more transparent about their charges, as well as find more qualified customer service representatives. Ukraine is a lovely country and many of the people coming through are seasoned travelers. If the airline continues to make it difficult for flyers, many may choose not to return. This was a short flight, but not even drinks were served."
Pros: "Northing good about this airline!"
Cons: "too short to judge"
Pros: "The flight itself was excellent- take off, landing super smooth. Crew was very nice and polite."
Cons: "Boarding at jfk was beyond horrible- felt like a cattle herd. The aircraft was outdated and uncomfortable, seats reclined only a bit, tight space (i am slim), 3 tvs for the entire cabin. Needless to say- no choice what to watch. Drinks were offered only on take off and landing. Food is far from being great. Not good for 9 hr haul."
Pros: "The UIA crews were very kind and attentive, responding to passengers in a matter of time :-)"
Cons: "Nor meals niether snacks of any kind, it was understandable due to extra expenses and economical issues the Airline faces. But I am sinserely appreciated UIA, its kind crews as well as Airport Boryspil Airport. Wish them all the best and success! I hope see you all on board soon :-)"
Pros: "Crew friendly I like Ukraine Airlines"
Cons: "Nothing compared to most Airlines I know"
Cons: "The surprise hidden baggage charge of $60 for my bag. The surprise $25 charge because I forgot to check in online (I'm traveling to 23 cities and I forgot this time but $25? Really?)"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "its a charter flight from the late 80s / early 90s. no personal entertainment, no power outlets, horrible food. the crew is younger than the plane"
Cons: "Very bad system for check in"
Cons: "Both legs of the trip were delayed for more than an hour. One of the boarding staff was very rude and hate forigners ."
Pros: "It's a point A to point B airline. There are no amenities but they do offer accepting 2 checked in bags."
Cons: "Outdated interiors. No space. On a 6hr flight, they offered food and snacks at a price. There was no entertainment. Then, my continuing flight which was 10hrs long, they finally fed us. Offered us food and snacks but still no entertainment. I really didn't like what they had to offer."
Pros: "Nothing. You had to purchase soda for$4usd. The bathroom's were old and broken down. There are no TV's per seat just the old ones every 6 seats or so on the ceiling. Where were 3 movies shown in 10.5 hr flight. Horrible food and experience."
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. This entire experience was absolutely horrible from the staff to the plane to the wait time to the food to the lack of in fought entertainment or plugs or pillows to them making us sit for 3 hours on the tarmac"
Cons: "Everything. This airline should be shut down tor their utter incompetence. They never even updated us when our flight was originally cancelled so I had to spend a hundred dollars getting to and from the airport."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 9 hours, that's caused me to miss my connection flight to Amman."
Pros: "Friendly. On time"
Cons: "Check in system and separate purchase of checked baggage is a bit strange and not intuitive"
Cons: "See above."
Cons: "UIA doesnt offer any in flight entertainment on this and other international flights that I have flown with them..."
Pros: "Business class service, airline lounge was nice, flight included pillow and blanket with some personal items (ear plugs, eye mask, etc). Smooth flight. My best experience with this airline to date."
Cons: "No toilet paper in business class bathroom during flight, only got 2 cups of water during 5 hr flight. Food choices for 4am meal not appropriate. Some passengers ordered hot salmon, this made me nauseous during flight. My meal included a fruit dish, slice of tomato, 2 slices of deli beef roast, bun, butter, jam, and coffee pudding dessert and 10 minutes into meal received hot cheese sweet cake with syrup. The combination of food was not appealing."
Pros: "I like the crew"
Cons: "It's kind costly flight than air India but , not better than air India , the seats were not comfortable , the food , if a Asian person is traveling then, I think you should provide him the Asian food"
Cons: "They sent passengers an e-mail about downloading and printing our tickets. And because I was n`t even able to download, let alone to find a printer and print it. I end up paying 10euros for something that was always their responsibility."
Cons: "When I bought the tickets, there was a written disclosure that additional baggage fees might apply. They provided a link to the airline site that listed baggage fees and the first bag (up to 50 lbs) will be free for the economy class ticket. However, at the check in I was told that I have to pay extra for each piece of luggage ($50). It wouldn't be a problem had I known that from the beginning. KAYAK let me believe that I'm buying a regular fare ticket and would be allowed a first piece of luggage for free."
Cons: "They dont even have a plug that we can charge our phones .Also they dont have a tv .It was a long trip so i must sleep because there was no other option."
Cons: "I paid money to you for ticket but Ukraine international airlines did not give me a ticket because you voided the transaction. I NEED MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "When I came for check in, it came out my baggage is not included into ticket price. There was no indication on my ticket about the baggage and it was written in the rules I may take 21 or 23 kg bag. But airline agent told this rule does not apply and I had to inquire at the airline about the details. It looks strange, I have to buy ticket and then ask what I have actually bought ."
Pros: "The flight arrived on time"
Cons: "Very noisy, only 2 bathrooms with que and quite dirty. People were pushing to get off the plane. Also very rough landing."
Pros: "They compensated our wait with a sandwich and a drink."
Cons: "We boarded the plane to find out there were some technical problems. We then deplaned and waited several hours for a new plane. Little information was given to the passengers in languages other than Ukrainian. Re-boarding was not announced, it just happened. Seats were very uncomfortable and too close together."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "The second flight (operated by both Ukraine and Turkish was good."
Cons: "nothing really."
Cons: "Confiscated my duty free alcohol. Refused to let me take my shoes on board because they had zips on them. I then had to call my lift to come back for my shoes. Plane squashy. Just an awful airline. Never again."
Pros: "friendly girls"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Ancient outdated planes. Uncomfortable seats. Everything is for a fee. Slow 767s built more than quarter century ago."
Pros: "Service staff was friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Expensive food with nothing for free included, no entertainment counsel"
Pros: "Refused to give me discount on extra baggage because I missed the time before the flight by 3 hours. Ordered kosher meals for this flight and the second but they didn't have it for me. All together spent over 15 hours with no food!!! On top of all they lost my baggage. Still did not get it. Terrible company!!!"
Pros: "At least we had space since this flight was not full. The seats are tiny and cramped so the extra space of an empty seat was needed."
Cons: "Small, uncomfortable seats and poor customer service with this Airline overall."
Cons: "My fiancée flew Ukrainian air and got sick from the food they fed her. They gave her menthol to smell so she wouldn't be nauseous, but we had hoped there would be some pulls of something she could take to help her feel better."
Cons: "They changed the default of including baggage fee into the ticket price, which was a surprise. In my return flight I had to pay for what I didn't pay when flying "there"."
Pros: "Check in was a snap. Bags arrived just as I got to baggage claim."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes. Cuing is not a strong point for Ukrainians."

Cons: "No food offered, no entertainment."
Pros: "Stewardess were polite and kind"
Cons: "Cabin far too hot. Plane was old and showing its age."
Pros: "Food, crew, professional and everything went smoothlye"
Cons: "Everything. The initial flights was significantly delayed without anyone updating the passengers at the gate. The crew was rude when asked questions about connecting flights. And they lost our baggage."

Pros: "It was short flight so not much to share, crew was ok"
Cons: "It was delayed over an hour"
Pros: "Punctuality. Direct flight from Prague to Madrid."

Pros: "Price point was good, staff was friendly and helpful. Overall the people working here are excellent, but they're clearly fighting an uphill battle against the company's systems/tech"
Cons: "*The online check in didn't work, so I wasn't sure if I actually had a flight until I got to the airport. *Upon arriving at the airport, the flight number had changed, which added to confusion. *Upon boarding aircraft, I realized I was assigned row 32... in a 25 row plane. I guess I was the first to realize this, as when I pointed it out to a flight attendant, she conferred briefly with a coworker and then they declared it was open seating. *The beverage service took so long that they never got to my row."
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"

Cons: "we were supposed to take of at 4:50. the flight left the airport at 7:30"
Pros: "Because of a delay in the first flight, we thought that we will miss our connection, but a Smart Wings agent was waiting for us, took us to a quick exit from the plane, gave us the boarding cards, and drove us to get on time to the next plane.

I'm sorry...i have to put this company to my black list..."
Pros: "The plane was clean and crew was polite."
Cons: "My flight ( Prague to London) was delayed for 1 hour. My previous flight ( London to Prague) was delayed for 40 min. I was speaking with other passengers, almost everybody was reffering to the numerous delays by SmartWings ( for 40 min to 7 hours). No warning or information about this delay was given in advance.
