    Hi Yonatan, nice report as usual! Always fun to discover these more exotic LCC routes. I guess since UP was folded back into LY, there are less LCC options to and from TLV, and I'm sure carriers like Wizz Air are happy about that.

    The cabin looks nice and new but yeah, that seat pitch looks mighty tight. I don't know how my back would feel so cramped on ironing boards for 3 hours, haha, but I'm glad you found the seats comfortable for the journey.

    Love the WIzz Air livery though!

    Thanks for sharing!
