3 people reservation but 2 people use the ticket

My friend bought a ticktet from Wizz air.

The ticket is only one and combining our 3 people reservation.

but last month, I had a back surgery.

So i cant go any other country to trip

in case, two friends want to use the ticket and I will no show that day.

Wizz air permit to use the tickwt only for two people?

Yes, your friends tickets should still be ok if you are a no show. If you have travel insurance you may be able to make a claim for the value of your ticket against your back surgery.

But contact the airline and cancel one person. Maybe the terms and conditions of the airfare you bought actually allow a refund - I don't know what you bought...

At least you can get the airport taxes refunded. And then your insurance hopefully covers the rest.

Being a no-show isn't better.

I had a sudden accident...

The ticket reservated with wizz go fare that can't get any refund.

So I thought the better no show than additional reservatain.

your advise is, Contact with airline and talk about this situation right?

If you're not going to use your ticket there is no need to talk to the airline, just don't show up. You can ask for a refund of taxes after the flight although there may be nothing left after the airline charges their fees.

We have had similar, when one of us could not travel.

Though in the same PNR with UA, we just called to cancel the one pax.

No issues, and over about 8 such situations.

Best of luck, and good health,

More experienced/knowledgeable flyers may know if there’s anything to my question/point....

- when the person not traveling doesn’t use the outgoing flight, I do believe the return portion will automatically be cancelled.

- if these three travelers are all ticketed together would that cancellation only affect the non-traveler?

Each person has a separate ticket number, even if it is on one record locator/PNR. One person not showing etc. shouldn't effect the other tickets.. Having said that It would be polite to call the airline to tell them to cancel your ticket, as that way the plane isn't held up calling your name for ages when you don't show.

"that way the plane isn't held up calling your name for ages when you don't show." - The plane wouldn't be held up for a no show as the passenger's details would be removed from the manifest when check in closes which is well before scheduled departure.

Rather than a no show, could the friends have his ticket scanned when they board so that they can have an empty seat to spread out into? Genuinely not sure if that's an option.

I wouldn't no-show. I would call the airline and, if the appropriate ticket level was purchased, see if I could hold the ticket for a future reservation. Non-refundable and non-changeable are two different things.
