Me parece una falta de respeto y mal servicio, ya que si uno paga por viajar en Priority es para gozar todos sus beneficios sin costo alguno. Me molesta ya que en la ciudad de Boston estuve en el vip lounge sin costo extra alguno, además tienen personal muy arrogante y clasista dentro del Lounge de la Ciudad de México"

Pros: "Price, timing, efficiency"
Pros: "The plane/Pilot got us home."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. The plane was old and had the drop down video screens. This was terrible- we couldn’t see the one closest to us, only the one further away. But any words on the further one, we couldn’t read. The staff on the plane were rude and made us seem like we’re a bother and unwelcome. We were scared to ask for anything."

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, it was awesome!!"
Cons: "Amazing flight"
Cons: "audio very poor on movies (could not understand words)"
Cons: "The Guy didn't assign seats together for us even though there were enough seats, so we had to explain him to do so, I to not understand why do I have to take tings away from my luggage to my hand bag in order to document it for free, the plane will carry exactly the same weight but inside the cabin; I suggest to use an overall weight including the passenger weight for allowance. The guy didn't tell that we had to pick our luggage in Mexico City and put it to the connecting flight."

Pros: "There was a ten and a half hour delay of which two hours was on a plane waiting on the tarmac with mechanical problems and two more hours waiting to be reticketed in the terminal. But the airline took care of us with vouchers for food, hotel and taxis. The crisis was handled really well. It was just miserable because we only got two hours sleep. I am glad this was just a once in a lifetime crisis and inconvenience. Maybe it was caused by Boeing who made the plane."
Cons: "The ten and a half hour delay."
Pros: "Technical difficulties"
Cons: "Waited 7 hours"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Every AM flight I've taken has taken off and landed with delay. We sit on tarmac or stand at the gate with no announcements from crew, captain, or gate attendants. Rude and inattentive attendants (asked three times for Screen to be refreshed as it didn't work) and each time request ignored. Inedible food, old planes. Yuck."
Cons: "it was a bad customer service. They never mentioned I had to be 2 hours earlier to be on board, I didn't got heads up, i came like an hour and 15 minutes, and they told me I was not able to go in, because the gates were closed. I told them about my situation that I was late because I was in a funeral, and they didn't really care about it. Customer service was not really nice to me even though when I got there not to late. They didn't really care. Sad about it. I though they were going to considered my case. The attitude of some employees were unacceptable."

More rhan 2 hours on the phone and they would not even let me talk with the supervisor. All I got was wait for someone in the counter... No one ever showed."

Pros: "There was nothing to like about my experience."
Cons: "I booked round trip ticket's to Cancun from NYC. I had a change of plans . I needed to add my 2,4yr old to my trip.The Aromexico agent wanted to charge me over 1000.00 for the two children, to travel with me even though online the tickets were $200.00.They would not let me book my tickets online because the children were minors even though my ticket was already bought. I ended up purchasing tickets on delta to get to Cancun. However I was under the impression that I would return with Aeromexico on the round trip ticket I had already bought.NO! according to Aeromexico even though you buy a round trip ticket if you fail to use 1 leg of the trip you loose both ways WHAT! Then they refused to allow me to speak to a supervisor it was hands down the worst experience I have ever had with an airline in the 30 yrs that I have been traveling internationally. I would paddle boat rather than use this air again."
