Then the EU routes could use Maltese AOC with resulting tax benefits.

More likely to feed their AUH hub with the LRs that start arriving soon.

My bet is obviously money but also moving away from Hungary (to have a backup organization in case the ruling party wants to leave the EU).

Only a cheap flights if you travel with just a toothbrush and can walk to the airport.

I think you are being a bit negative. Mrs Johnson and I managed to do 4 days in Spain this month with just 2 small pieces of (free) hand luggage and 1 item of (paid) cabin baggage. No other extras. Mrs Johnson likes her make-up and doesn't wear the same clothes twice on a trip. The price was very reasonable. Public transport in Europe generally works well and is normally low price. The bus between Chisinau airport and Chisinau in Moldova takes 40 mins to cover 8 miles, runs twice per hour and costs 9 pence one way as of this month (yes, really). Costs can be kept down if going for just a few days and you think carefully about what you really need.

Titan 321 G-POWW covering flights from LGW tomorrow due to crew shortage.

Not a single Wizz UK flight left Gatwick within an hour of schedule yesterday and it’s threatening to be the same again today.

There you go. Orban just announced that the state will "take the extra profit" from certain organizations (banks, insurance companies, food chains, etc) including airlines to fund the budget deficit. The shareholders of Wizz must be over the moon. Malta here we come.

Seems that DSA base is being closed, or reduced significantly, from mid June.

CabinCrewe 3rd Jun 2022 14:36

well that didn't last long. Though I could maybe have put a small wager on it.

MDS 3rd Jun 2022 16:06

Thought I'd give Wizz another go, booked a return flight to Malaga back in March (for two weeks time) and opted for the Wizz Air discount club.

Now they've cancelled most of the routes from DSA, are happy to refund the flight money, but have pocketed the discount club cash and don't include it in the refund.

Great stuff. Fleeced by this pathetic outfit.

TimmyW 3rd Jun 2022 16:21

This is a DSA issue rather than WizzAir

How so? I would imagine Wizz are arguing that the discount club covers all their flights, and not just those from DSA?

They've pulled out of Doncaster as the airport weren't able to meet their commercial requirements as per the contract agreed.

SWBKCB 3rd Jun 2022 16:41

But the point MDS was making with regard to Wizz Air was their refusal to repay his discount club costs - hence "Great stuff. Fleeced by this pathetic outfit."

Maybe stop rubbing your hands with glee and read the post you are responding to?

MDS 3rd Jun 2022 17:17

I understand their T&C's and it's my fault for agreeing to them in the first place.

It still doesn't change the fact I feel like I've been partially scammed. It is what it is though. Lesson learned I suppose.

Rebooked out of Leeds with a substantial fare increase in tow.

TBSC 3rd Jun 2022 17:25

There will be more of it. Wonder what the excuse will be in case of other airports.

Vokes55 3rd Jun 2022 17:33

Over half of their (WUK) flights out of LGW cancelled yesterday, the rest but one ran with significant delays. 2/9 cancelled today, 3/9 over 3 hours late.

Gatwick have stopped allocating them airbridge stands at peak times due to the disruption they’re causing occupying stands for prolonged periods.

Having used SEN in the past, maybe its time to give us another look

Not according to this report!
