No new services starting from the UK due to brexit.. No one knows what will happen when brexit is here. There is mutterings about a lot of Polish routes dropped or rotations cut.This is right across the board with the big 3 lcc.

Your post is a load of bo!!!cks. Sounds like a comment on an ill-informed Daily Mail story.

I suppose this not being done in London is definitely health and safety gone mad rather than Budapest having completely different topography and the Danube being about 50% wider than the Thames and not flanked by tall buildings either side?

You might manage it up the Clyde or Tyne, but Iím not convinced youíve ever tried organising such an event? Apologies in advance if you have and were knocked back by the H&S police.

For a truly exhilarating Wizzair experience, try ever departing Luton on time ... or perhaps standing in a cramped gate staircase for 40m with no explanation.

Or fly from Athens, where they take you out on the bus to the Apron where the aircraft is parked, only to find out the arriving passengers have not finished disembarking the aircraft, and you are locked in the bus when it is 30 celcius with the sun beating down on you by the aircraft for 30-40 mins while the arriving passengers leave the plane and then the cabin crew spend 20-ish mins doing their preparation before they allow you on-board!

As has been said many times no one is forced to fly the likes of Wizz or Ryanair but we do because the unaffordable has become affordable or they fly to a more convenient airport.

I stood on a metal staircase for 20 minutes waiting to board, not great but I put up with it as the alternative was not to travel at all.

You can't blame Wizz for wanting quick turns... I've had many similar experiences with EZY, especially at Spanish airports where I have been left waiting for ages on a bus. I'm going to Riga with them in a couple of months - so will be interesting to see what they are like.

Obviously trying to compete with Ryanair's 25 min turnarounds. Now THEY are uncomfortable, practically being forced to run to your seat

Let us not forget the Wizz A321s have 230 seats compared to Ryanair B737s with 189 providing of course there are no empty seats.

So thats roughly 20% extra passengers, 20% of 25m = 5m = 30m turnarounds for an A321.

Getting there, slowly, but surely. Why not try follow in the likes of the 'Leisure Loco's'. LS for example with their 235 seat B752's, allow between 50-60 mins for a turnaround. It provides much more breathing room for the pax and probably doesn't cost them 'that much more' to wait around

But as always it's a race to the bottom and I agree with Tango, it's only a matter of time before something serious happens

At LTN it seems intense pressure is put on the poor handling agents at Swissport who often have to greet or dispatch several aircraft in a matter of minutes. In the evenings you will see groups of forlorn pax stuck at the bottom of the gates having been "boarded" in the system but not actually boarded on the aircraft. I understand why, but it's grimmer than Ryanair at STN and that's saying something. Wizzair offers the only evening ex-London departures to many destinations (and the only ex-London departures full stop to others) so it knows it can get away with this.

I notice it has also reintroduced the 1-hour-delay gamble on its website, where if you pay an extra £10 or so you get £100 back if you're an hour late. It takes a genius to make ancillary revenue out of delays! It goes without saying that Wizzair is more likely to make money from this than its customers; last year I flew 11 W6 sectors; only 2 were on time, and the *average* delay on the other 9 was 25 minutes. Welcome to Luton, where you can consistently run late and make even more money!

30 million pax carried in the last 12 months. Any news about thousands of injuries?

Again, 30 million pax carried. Your decision came a tad late.

Wizz is not handled by Swissport in LTN for a while now.
