Might be flying with Wizz Air in the summer, has anyone ever flown with them? Thoughts/opinions? I've only flown with Easyjet so far, so have yet to experience a low cost airline

Jesus that's just a few planes then! I've flown on an Easyjet A319 to Iceland and back, and that's it

Being a tall guy, the airline I struggled the most with was Ryanair. Some of my friends have flown Wizz Air and seem to like them.

Thanks for that. I'm a bit nervous as I've never flown on my own before

Just think of it as going on a train, just you get a better view. 

I have flown a lone before with BA using their skyflyer service to see my aunty in London. There is nothing scary about it unless you have a fear of flying. A fear of heights won't affect you at 35,000 feet

I have flown many airlines:
BA
Royal Brunei
AeroMéxico
British Airways
Rossiya
KLM
Aeroflot
MasWings
Iberia

Those were just what I would consider as low cost.

No no. I'm often in the air :Smile Although I do tend to stick to BA whenever possible for Avios points.

A while ago, I started something off in the rail thread with the idea that I would plot it on a map and identify any trends.
I never did it and haven't kept mine up to date at all. 
However, it may be worth someone doing similar in the airline thread, either for routes, aircraft or airlines.

It's more the airport side of it that I'm nervous about, rather than the flight itself. I was proper nervous before flying to Iceland but I loved it once we took off.

I'm unsure of where to go and what to do when I get to the airport (check-in, security, bag drop etc.....) and don't want to look like an idiot by going to the wrong place..... also the baggage rules really confuse me, like what you can take on the plane and what you can take in the hold

To outline it for you in simple terms:
When you arrive:
Check in and bag drop (unless you have checked in online and/or have hold luggage) Maximum hold luggage weight is 20kg ish.)
Security you need to follow all instructions given to you and no liquids more than 100ml with a maximum weight of 5kg ish.
After security do whatever you want in the airport such as shop or eat.

I would arrive at least 2 hours before departure and for hold luggage, if in doubt just put it in the hold Smile

Thanks for that, really helpful Smile I guess you can't take things like toothpaste and shampoo in the cabin with you anyway so I'd have to put it in the hold
