The initial boarding was delayed half an hour due to "traffic issues" at México City. In the last year, about a quarter of the AeroMexico flights I have taken have been moderately or seriously delayed for some reason. I need to remember to book plenty of layover time when flying AM. In all other respects, I think that the crew and service are just fine. When there are delays such that multiple passengers will miss connections on their next AeroMexico segment, it would be good if the crew upon landing would identify those passengers directly and inform them of rebooking options, or even call ahead to the next gates to tell them to wait a few minutes. And if departure or arrival delays occur frequently with specific flights, airlines should adjust the schedules of those flights.
Cons: "boarding, we were told the flight was overbooked and we would have to wait for another flight"
Pros: "Movies and shows. Blankets. Prompt staff on plane. Snack options."
Cons: "Ticket counter was stubborn to release our boarding passes despite having already checked in online. Saying we were “too late”. The kiosk would not release our boarding passes either. Yet, we breezed right through security to the gate and we’re first to board the plane having had to actually wait awhile before boarding. The ticket counter person unnecessarily made us wait even longer when we were already running late due to having spent 11 hours in the hospital day prior from E. coli. The boarding process was also sloppy. Three different attendants asked to see our passports. Why did everyone need to verify us? We were asked very silly and seemingly unnecessary questions before boarding further slowing the process. We were asked before boarding if we had checked a bag, not sure what difference that made."
Pros: "Aeromexico Boeing 737s are great. No complaints here."
Pros: "The aircraft in very good condition."
Cons: "The airport at Mexico city its really bad. Terminal 2."
Pros: "They are so friendly"
Cons: "The restroom"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, huge inconvenience"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Salida del avión"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and we received a nice breakfast."
Pros: "Nothing about boarding"
Cons: "After being the only person pulled out of line for my carryon and myself to be checked at the boarding gate, I asked a simple question to the lady who profiled me, “what made you profile me for this additional security check out of hundreds of passengers here, I’d like to know”. I was met with such rude behavior which I never encountered with any airline before. Not only was her attitude rude, she couldn’t answer my question and Aeromexico didn’t bother to get someone fluent in English to answer me. Notice I wasn’t refusing the security check; it’s just that they were rude, cold and made me feel like a criminal while checking me. They need to improve their system for security checks at the boarding gate. I don’t understand why I had to be checked further bc they already check every passenger before entering the gates and boarding area. I still don’t know the answer to my question. The lady’s attitude embarrassed me and ruined my experience. Aeromexico should retrain their staff and make them realize it’s bc of us they have a job and they should be serving us with proper customer service and have their attitudes in check. Because I have every right to ask that question and will continue to do so! I forgot the lady’s name..but would be happy if my msg got taken seriously and the lady made aware.."
Cons: "We waiting for 45 minutes on the run way because was not a corridor ready to depart we are number 8 on line. Was not entertainment available the system was down no music, no movies, no nothing"
Pros: "The business class amenities were amazing. Food was great and service was great."
Pros: "A bit late the take off but within reasonable margins. We arrived 10 min late, so not bad"
Cons: "There was not red wine, other than that no complaints"
Pros: "We think the upgrade to AM Plus was worth it."
Cons: "Crew not attentive. Announcements in English were almost impossible to hear - need to be louder. Video screens were very limited: no games to play, no instructions on how to use it, and map of route was inflexible."
Cons: "The signage for flight gates should be more timely. Some flight gates were not posted until minutes before scheduled departure times."
Pros: "A bigger lunch"
Cons: "Pay for second bag is very expensive (55 usd)"
Pros: "The food is delicious"
Cons: "4 hours after departure, a passenger from tourist cabin, came to the first class cabin, the crew realize about it, they laugh, and do nothing."
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Pros: "good service!"
Cons: "both flights were delayed."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "It boarded a half hour after it was supposed to depart, and took off an hour late, with no explanation ever for the delay. Also, at one point in the flight, the 2 flight attendants in the economy section were seated and asleep - I had to wake one up to get something to drink. And she wasn't very pleased about it. But I would think that is a safety violation that no flight attendant was awake and alert for some period of time."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "People make you feel dumb when you have a question or they need to repeat something they mentioned before. Is very hard to understand sometimes trough the speaker."
Pros: "Service and complimentary at-seat entertainment."
Cons: "There is a $25 checked bag fee for the first bag."
Pros: "When you connect out of Mexico City, the food is always fresher and more protein-rich. Yum!"
Cons: "The screens in the seat backs are a little dated and low-resolution."
Pros: "Excellent attention,boarding it was on time"
Pros: "To be Honest, I really don't like anything about this airline. It has horrible service. The workers at the airplane are nasty. And I didn't get my bag, even when I had to paid for it. This service from this airline the worse. ..."
Cons: "N O T I N G ...."
Cons: "No solution was provided to travelers who needed to be at the destination on the originally scheduled date. Had to spend a fortune on another airline to get tinny destination as Aeromexico offered (and as of yet still has not) no solution"
Cons: "Pilots were late to flight...m"
Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"
Pros: "Everyone who worked on this trip was very friendly and helpful. They all handled the high pressure and busy nature of the job with excellent professionalism."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."
Cons: "The plane left almost an hour late, when previously it has said it was running on schedule. The seats are cramped, barely any leg room to get comfortable in."
Cons: "On June 29 Aeromexico Flight 2683 arrived in Mexico City airspace and the Captain informed the passengers that the plane would have to refuel in Alcapulco due to inclement weather in Mexico City. The website https://www.timeanddate.com/weather/mexico/mexico-city/historic reports NO inclement weather on that date or at the time that AM 2683 was to land. I observed partly cloudy skies from my window seat as well. The ground crew in Alcapulco was unprepared for AM2683 and the fueling was delayed. After doing so, AM 2683 landed AFTER my connecting flight AM 684 was scheduled to depart at 1:05 AM on June 30. A female connection agent met me at the baggage claim and informed me that that AM 684 had not been held and had departed. The female agent was unhelpful, dismissive and rude. In fact, she had taken a personal cell phone call at the connections desk prior to assisting passengers of AM 2683 which lasted many minutes. She escorted us to the Aeromexico counter where I waited 30 or more minutes to speak to a representative. The representative at the Aeromexico counter informed me that there were NO flights to Quito until 1:05 AM on July 1. I asked if she could book me on another airline and she informed me that because the delay was weather related Aeromexico had no obligation to accomodate me. She booked me on AM684 for July 1. I asked where I was to wait for the next 24 hours and she said Aeromexico had no obligation to pay for lodgings. She gave me food vouchers for the airport. I immediately logged onto Travelocity.com and found a Copa Airlines flight to Quito leaving that afternoon which was in fact OPERATED BY AEROMEXICO! I booked that ticket myself and waited in the Mexico City Airport for 14 hours. What would have taken 10 hours took me 22."
Pros: "The staff on the flights were very nice."
Cons: "I will never book through this airline again. My flight was delayed and no gate information was available to me. I had to ask several people where to go and was told several different answers. This resulted in a lot of excess walking with my luggage. The airport signs have tiny information for non Spanish speaking passengers. Never again."
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Pros: "Overall the flights went smoothly"
Cons: "Check in process was very slow and totally disorganized. It happened both leaving and returning. Took one hour to checkin in Orlando and about the same when leaving Mexico City. Could do with some major improvements here....."
Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"
Pros: "Meals provided on plane. TV on every seat, flight crew very good"
Pros: "I like the non stop flight."
Cons: "I honestly don't see the point in having so many terminals to check in. I had my reservation code I was even able to pay for my bag and wouldn't print out the boarding pass so I had to go to the assistance counter. There was one one person helping out with this issue and took me close to 30 mins to be able to get a boarding pass"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Nice to have snacks and drinks for such a short flight. Smooth take off and landing."
Pros: "The boarding part was good."
Cons: "People who work at aeromexico need to speak more English, too much Spanish speaking with no English speaking. I guess you do not cater for tourists speaking English. I think that the aeromexico employees in mexico city is very rude, I lost my flight, because of that. They did not want to wait a few minutes for my connecting flight. I ended losing the flight and had to take delta back to NY City with better service and fare. When I ask at the counter for another fare by aeromexico - they told me $1,500 for business class and I paid $534.00 with delta. Plus aeromexico need to have more than one fight per day to NYC."
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Pros: "the smooth landing in the airport of the Mexico city"
Pros: "The entertainment was awesome. Made the flight time go very quickly..."
Cons: "They put my wife and I in separate seats. Between strangers.... WTF"
Pros: "The crew and staff were very nice and accommodating, so no complaints there."
Cons: "I actually had a rather bad experience, but it was with the Mexico City airport, not Aeromexico. Honestly, no major complaints. Thank you."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew very pleasant and accommodating."
Pros: "My mother missed the connecting flight and she still not home"
Cons: "No special services were provided to a older person. There for she still in Mexico city. Penalties to change a flight ware unreasonable high. I will never use this service again."
