In the defense of wizzair… no dogs, no tear gas… only natural tears

// January 25th, 2010 // No Comments » // frontpage

Fact or Fiction?


From our forum: “My girlfriend from London had to visit me in Ukraine last Friday. The plane by Wizzair arrived late. They boarded passengers flying to Kyiv, but then decided it was better for them to fly to Poland, so they asked everybody to leave, though neither London nor Kyiv airports were closed! Many Ukrainian passengers refused to leave the plane, so they used police with dogs and tear gas to get them out!!! They didn’t have tickets till the end of the year and refused to pay for hotels. With such attitude I will not be surprised if they go bankrupt. I hope it happens very soon! Wizzair sucks!”

Wizzair cries foul… citing and as co-conspirators… (since the story broke on our forum citing an article on

It is impossible to believe either tear gas or dogs were released onto a plane full of people.  Even if true, it says more about the police’s tactics than anything to do with the airline.  Wizz Air does suck, they have terrible customer service, dreadful colors and are more likely to issue legal demands than apologies or explanations.

That being said, they are not evil.  As the lead critic of Wizz Air we try to offer biased but true statements of malcontent with their service and have no room for false accusations.  We will be removing comments about this incident, unless those persons can substantiate their claims.

Wizz Air has enough problems without the need to conjure up new ones.

Wizz Air allegedly upsets the Wikipedia neutrality balance.

Frequent wikipedia deletions have sparked a recent discussion over Wizz Air’s Customer Service record.

From Wikipedia:

Service Quality to be mentioned here?

The text about Service Quality is frequently deleted, by anonymous users (i.e. only an IP address available). The text however is fully in line with the Wikipedia standards. It is civil and neutral, respects all points of view, and is verifiable and factual.

This page to stimulate a discussion on the Service Quality text, for those who feel need for it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eugene9 (talkcontribs) 17:05, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

I do believe Service Quality should be mentioned! Probably the people deleting it has an interest which is in conflict with the public interest. Will re-add the articles they deleted. Servicemind (talk) 16:34, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Wizz Air is well known in trying to curb their image, now Wikipedia is upsetting their balance.  Recently added to Wikipedia is a Criticisms section citing many of their now well established methods of conduct:


Wizz Air has taken a fair amount of criticism since its inception over its quality of service and allegedly poor customer support. On August 17th, 2009 they filed an official complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization over the domain which surfaced a few months earlier by a group of disgruntled customers. [21] Despite the efforts of Wizz Air and their legal team citing trademark infringement over the disputed domain, the case was decided in favor of the respondent(s) and the site remains. [22] On December 22nd, 2009 they were embroiled in a controversy over a story that circulated from [23] claiming they used police dogs and tear gas to forcibly remove several passengers from a canceled flight scheduled from London to Kiev. This was contested by Wizz Air claiming it was a PR attack perpetrated by angry customers of the flight. They released a police report corroborating their version of events which clearly made no mention of either tear gas or dogs being involved in the ordeal.[24] However the story quickly circulated over the internet by disgruntled customers causing a PR problem.

How long until this too is erased?  See our legal section for more on WizzLegal’s attempts to kill  Is this the price tradeoff for decent customer service?  How much in legal fees does Wizz Air pay?  Is a staff of moderators to edit wikipedia and other forums with positive and glowing feedback easier than basic customer service?

A regular traveller between UK and Eastern Europe. Do not expect information about delays and cancellations until the last minute – there is no way to speak directly to Wizz staff and the only way to contact them is via e-mail to customer service – even then, don’t expect a reply! Take your own food – the onboard catering is a disgrace! The ground service varies massively between countries and on the aircraft. Taxes and surcharges – make sure you factor them in, they are excessive on Wizzair compared to easyJet. The low fares of the first 2 years are gone now – check regular carriers such as LOT and BA for similar priced tickets with advantage of mainstream airports and facilities. Its one of the new breed of low-cost airlines so expect to pay heavily for any extra’s such as over baggage allowance / food / drink etc. etc.

Luton to Budapest – just before check in for homeward journey from Budapest and after already rescheduled delay by 2.5 hours, flight cancelled, no explanation, no assistance of any kind, (Wizzair main offices are next door to airport), and left to own devices to get home as next day flight offered was already full. After paying out for another carrier to get us back to East Midlands airport, only option, then had to travel most of the night on coaches to get back to Luton to collect car. After several emails and fax and 2 calls to premium rate call centre we still have had no response of any kind. This flight was way back on Feb 18th. Our extra return costs worked out more than the whole weekend break. They seem to have no customer service level or skills at all, and it seems do not appear at all bothered. If things run to plan they are just there, but if things go wrong, beware.
