Seat Map Wizz Air Airbus A320 v1
Airplane Airbus A320 v1 Wizz Air with 180 seats on board. Use airplane seat map to find which ones are more comfortable and which ones should be avoided.
Wizz Air have a policy of not only allowing large trolley cases to be carried in the overhead lockers but also now offer a pricing policy to make money. The locker maximum weight capacity is 38KG and each locker will hold 4 of these big cases yet although they are checked for size at some airports they are never checked for weight. Recently I have experienced two lockers out of use due to turbulent weather the case broke the door catches on one aircraft and one with the same damage on another aircraft. This is putting profit above safety. The lockers are designed for a briefcase/handbag plus duty free purchases. Wizz air seats are much thicker than Easyjet so the leg room is very small in the same A320 aircraft. I have be sat in a seat where the seat in front has been broken by someone's knees and the tray was broken. Yes they are a cheap airline but if your flight plans offer other airlines; use them.
Window properly aligned here, good views.
Seat has misaligned windows, 1 too far back, 1 too far away. You can see out but its a bit awkward.
It was ok. I had no great expectations from a low cost company but the overall experience was ok. Recommend to take the priority boarding to skip the crowd at check in and boarding. I will use this company in the future for sure.
Flew Luton-Budapest return at start of summer hols so both flights were totally full and tickets not particularly cheap. It's true that seats are indeed cramped and it is hard to believe they are 32 inch pitch. That said, I'm 6'2" and was able to sit up straight so that my knees weren't touching the seat in front. As soon as you slouch a little though, they're pushed into the indented part of the seat. The padding was not vast but I survived until the last 15 mins of the flight before noticing it. Overall if you go expecting an experience akin to a bus, pack your bags according to their strict sizing and take your own snacks, it's really not that bad.
It's a flying bus - you get exactly what you paid for. The seating is quite congested, but it is worth it if your flight costs 10-30 euros
I was sat in 18F for my flight from London Luton to Sofia. I had the unfortunate privilege of travelling in a refurbished aircraft with the new slimline seats which are ironing boards. No give, bare thin padding. I am 5ft 8" or 172cm and my knees were touching the back of the seat. Hideously uncomfortable for the entire 3 hour flight. If you travel on A white nosed aircraft your in for an uncomfortable ride as Purple nosed aircraft have the older seats fitted. As prices on Wizz Air are rising past Easyjet I doubt I will use Wizz again.
Great view from this seat.
the normal seat in redesign airplane become totally dramatically small. the pitch seems to have reach the total human limit to move in and out your seat. i was using the airline a lot, start to focus to use other way to avoid being treated like a cow in a plane. too bad wizzair experience was acceptable for a low cost. now they brag all over they have more seats in to reduce cost. it is all about money, despite last minute fligth still are 200-300 gbp on some days... Anyway there is a limit to what passenger should accept to pay less, they have crossed the line.
Window seat on the rear side of the aircraft. Almost no legroom, cramped spaces, there's no way you can shove a small carry-on under the seat in front.
I have a hard time believing these seats are 30-32" pitch. My knees were pressed against the INDENTED portion of the seat back. If United's A320 domestic pitch is 30" which gives me about 2" of knee space (and their seat reclines) I'd say this is about 28".
Actually the seat is pretty good instead of pretty bad. The chair decline options aren't really a point, since the flight only takes 2 hours. Other than that, I've had this flight for about 5 times and I haven't seen that many people going to the lavatory. I think the seat is pretty good since it's close to the exit in the back so I can basically leave first. Leaving first when headed to Budapest can be a real plus; since the waiting lines tend to get gigantic once inside.
The new A321 is pretty comfortable. I'm 5'9 (175cm) and the seat was good enough. No recline on any of the seats, there is a small table which is too high for laptop. Having the laptop in your laps is also uncomfortable. Emergency exits have no window on these flights. First row has larger legroom, but there is a wall in front, which is blocking your feet. You are the first to exit. It comes handy when the flight goes on a jetty and the back doors are locked.
There are limited storage space in the overhead bin as it is used by flight personnel. There is space for one or two bags for the entire row (A-F).
The seat is comfortable, I haven't noticed the reduced seat width. As it is really close to the exit it was quite chilly to sit there and wait for everyone to get onboard (it was wintertime), OTOH I was the first to leave the plane.
Any of the first row seats are good. 1c/1d are best for flights into Luton because you can be first off. The armrests on row 1 are fixed, so that limits the space a bit. But also limits the incursion of the adjacent passenger as well. You have to be amongst the first on because the overhead bins above the seats have crew equipment in them. Row 1 is generally less used than the traditional extra legrooms at 12/13, so the chances of a vacant seat next to you are good.
This A320 has even wider seats than some of the legacy airlines. It's 1 inch wider than Ryanair's. It was very comfortable. Row 22 has the window just in the right place (you don't have to turn your head back, or squeeze it to the seat in front of you).
Ho volato su questo aereo Wizz a Maggio 2015 da Napoli a Budapest pagando circa 2 di sovrapprezzo per il posto da me scelto. Lo spazio per le gambe è abbondante per me che sono alto solo 171cm. I sediolini non sono reclinabili ma il confort è buono considerando che il volo è durato 1 ora e 15 minuti.
I think that legroom is a bit smaller than in Ryanair's B737, but it was pretty enough for my 180cm of height. Nice view from this place (behind the right wing).
Decent legroom for a 1,5 hour flight. Would choose Wizz over Ryanair if the price difference is not more than 15.
