Wizz Air is doing quite ok financially. They are being challenged by Ryanair quite strongly in CEE, however they seem to win most areas. People are leaving Wizz due to better offers other places in the world. Expansion is slowed down a bit, and trying to consolidate the market, and to replace A320 with A321. 15/Aug/16

Positive   22/Jan/18
