How this airline cheats its customers by charging extra for luggage
We arrived at Charleroi. Three people with three free (?) carry-ons and three large checked bags that had been previously booked.
We had no problems checking the large bags, but the three carry-ons did not fit into the Wizz Air sizer box, which magically happened to be 2 cm smaller than Ryanair’s.
The airline agent told us with a smile that it would cost us 35 extra euros a bag despite the fact that they weighed less than 10 kg each. We had no such problems on the return trip with Ryanair: a purse was also allowed along with the typical carry-on baggage.
Do the test in the airports where Ryanair and Wizz Air’s sizer boxes are near each other. You will find that Wizz Air’s is 2 cm smaller. 2 cm = 35 extra euros. You have to bring light bags and suitcases. Spread the word to avoid unpleasant surprises before takeoff.
