Hi! I booked a ticket with Wizz air, I'm looking to avoid the carry-on baggage fee, as anyone successfully avoided the fee?

Yes.  Two ways.
1) dont bring luggage.
2) do something ridiculous like wear a scottevest

I've read online that if you bring a boarding pass that says you paid for the upgraded ( luggage)
Basically they just look at your boarding pass... any recent report on that ?

which route?

from TLV, at the gate they don't check at all, only at checkin, but if are not checking bags, you don't have to go to the counter.

great news!!

from Oct. 29 all wiz air tickets will include a big carryon, however its not guaranteed to be with you, if there is no space they will gate check it, if you want to guarantee it then you need to buy priority boarding & they will guarantee it.

Seems like all European ULCC's now allow a regular carry on, is it a new EU law?
