Airline reviews

Cons: "Comfort of seats and when checking in being checked in with your party not scattered around."

Pros: "Airline reps were always available"
Cons: "They flew me from Veracruz to Guadalajara 3 hours later than scheduled. Instead of making an effort for several passangers to catch the flight from Guadalajara to Fresno (also ran by Volaris) they would not let us board the Fresno flight; even though the gate was still open and the last passengers were boarding. Instead, Volaris sent me to Los Angeles (they gave me the option of flying to Fresno, but 5 days later. I don't live in Guadalajara and that was not my final destination). In Los Angeles, I had to take a cab from the LAX to the Bus Station, take the bus to Fresno (spend all night on the bus) and take a cab to the Fresno airport to pick up my automobile. Thank you Volaris . . . great job!"

Pros: "The crew was super professional"

Cons: "I was flying with my husband and 3 you. Children and couldn’t sit together. I was not told the high luggage charges and that I could register before for a cheaper rate. The lines to check in were over 1 hour and 20 minutes wait. The flight attendants do not speak English so could not communicate or help me at all."

Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."

Cons: "Not pay to much for my luggage"

Cons: "I had to pay for check in at counter because I could do it online. Their system didn’t work well. Ridiculous"

Pros: "Flight cost and on time"
Cons: "Seat are not so confy and they serve absolutely no water. No wifi for in flight movie or anything. If here was it was not clearly offered either."

Cons: "Crew was not prepared with enough custom forms. When we arrived at airport it was a mad Scramble to find some."

Pros: "Amazing crew!!!"
Cons: "Seats were hard"

Cons: "Everything was good. No problems or complaints"

Cons: "No water on any flight. Terrible customer service. Will never fly with them again."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I didn’t even get a chance to take the flight. I realized my flight was for 12am the day I was supposed to leave within 2 hours of departure. I asked if I could get another flight was told no! I couldn’t even get a credit since I didn’t call within 3 hours of departure. I would not recommend!!!"

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "This fly was pretty good!"

Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable- no padding!!!"

Cons: "Being timely"

Cons: "It was an overnight flight so I would have appreciated if the crew members refrain from super loud conversations right next to my seat (I was obviously trying to sleep as everyone else on the flight."

Pros: "Getting my boarding pass was a hazel and the flight was delayed about an hour and a half. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and they practically didn't recline. Everything on board was sold and nothing was offered complimentary not even a cup of water."
Cons: "What could be improved is, being on time. The seats could also be a more comfortable with a bit more legroom, room to recline, and space between people. Seats felt like I was sitting on the other person's lap. A small drink should be complementary."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "a lot"

Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"

Pros: "Efficient boarding-very pleasant crew"
Cons: "I was harassed while waiting to board the plane saying I had to check my Carry on because there was no room above in the plane – I told the individual I had some expensive medical device and she stated that it didn’t matter – when I entered the plane I did find more than adequate space to put my bag"

Cons: "Get the forms to fill up"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "More organization toward boarding"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing! Crew was rude and liars"
Cons: "Tried to work more with customers and try to accommodate."

Pros: "The flight was swift without a hiccup, boarding was also done in a quick manner. Volaris is always great in service even at the counter."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know the baggage allowance and that we had to check in first via kiosk before lining up to drop off our luggage."

Pros: "The airline, Volaris, is great! Very professional and on time! They also took my luggage without charging me extra. Overall a great experience!"
Cons: "Maybe if the pilot would speak clearly. The Spanish nor English was clear on the first flight and I had a hard time following him."

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Everything could be better."

Cons: "Maybe courtesy soft drinks and peanuts"

Pros: "I liked the boarding was pretty simple and went by smoothly. The crew was very welcoming. I was happy to know that the vessel was not fully booked and therefore, had some empty seats to which I moved to. I felt fine like any other flight."
Cons: "No entertainment but that is because it was a short 3 hour flight. Nothing else to report."

Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "no entertainment choices offered - RADIO OR VIDEO."

Pros: "Everything was fine. I recommend Volaris."
Cons: "Long walk to boarding gate."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I understand this is a cheap airline. However their flow to measure every bag is terrible. Each passenger with a carry on has to line up to get a sticker. Then a second line to board the plane. It was schedule to leave 7.09 am departed at 8 am. I really do not like this airline but was the only available option"

Pros: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."

Pros: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."
Cons: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."

Cons: "I booked the flight, received confirmation e-mail and receipt for payment. Then get an e-mail at 1:45 am the day of my flight which was scheduled for 7 am that the pricing value was incorrect and my booking was canceled. I flew from New York to California where I was going to get a connecting flight the next day but my connecting flight purchase was terminated. I have never experienced this and I was left stranded and unable to get to my destination. I had transportation waiting for me and I had to find out the morning of my flight. All I got was an e-mail stating they tried to reach me but that was a LIE because I did not receive any phone calls. The flight I booked was booked right away so no time elapsed for the price to go up. When I called to complain to the company they were unable to help me and no supervisor or manager was available. I was told to call back in 3 hours for someone to assist me but that I was not going to be able to get on my flight because now, the morning of my flight the price was $200 more then what was advertised when booking. This is unacceptable and unprofessional."

Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"

Cons: "People were rude and inconsiderate of our age and ability to move on our own. Being threaten to tip or our tickets would be cancelled is bullshit!"

Cons: "Kiwi lost my reservation I lost my fligh"

Pros: "All thank you for your support. ☺"
Cons: "All attention to clients. Thank you"

Pros: "Puntuales."
Cons: "El procedimiento de abordaje es un relajo."

Cons: "They checked us in, at the 2:00am boarding time they told us there was something wrong with the plane and they had fix it. Finally, at 6:00am they canceled the flight. We won’t be booking volaris again."

Cons: "Volaris is now weighting handcarry bags at the gate and charging if it is more than 10 Kilograms. Mine was ok. But a new rule enforced when boarding. Several passenger had to stop, weight and pay. Another bad thing on Volaris."

Pros: "Primera y ultima vez que volamos con Volaris. Espantosos asientos tan cerca de cada uno. Parece qur estan transportando animales."

Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Pocas cortesías en alimentos y bebidas"

Once plane did leave the crew was extremely childish having full blown personal conversations loudly during the flight. During the emergency briefing crew was laughing at eachothers jokes. Super unprofessional overall"

Pros: "the fly was delayed and the seats are too crowd"

Cons: "Terrible turbulence and very uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Leaving on time would have been better"

Pros: "They gave me a free checked bag! When I took out my credit card to pay for it, he said "No, es un regalo (gift)." How nice for a budget airlines!! May have been due to the holidays, but Volaris just charged me MORE for a bag during the holidays. We boarded on time and landed early. Our baggage came fairly quickly as well. Those are important things to me (especially if I have to catch a bus or a connecting flight) I'll definitely use Viva Aerobus again!!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty cramped, especially if you're tall. But that's to be expected. What I thought they could've done (and this goes for all the cheapo airlines) was at least offer us a cup of water. I mean, come on!"

Cons: "Did not my luggage"

Cons: "I was early to aborde and I wasn’t allow to check in due to apprently being late"

Pros: "I liked that they got me to my destination alive."
Cons: "The seats, being on time, docking at the right terminal so we didn’t have to bus to another terminal to go through customs, the food, the check in process... everything was sub par. For a thousand dollar ticket, I’ll never fly Volaris or Viva Aerobús again."

I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"
Cons: "NOTHING! I rather pay $100 more in an airline that has great CUSTOMER SERVICE and that in addition for not giving me a straight answer about how delayed is my damn flight AND taking one fu****ng hour to put the luggage in the carousel for the passengers! I hope they go out of business!!!!!! I know they lost mine and my whole family!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to heavy traffic we arrived 35 minutes prior to our departure and were not allowed to board the flight. The website clearly states that they reserve that right within 30 minutes. Their website also did not allow us to check-in online which would have also saved time. They simply told us no and said it was a lost ticket. When I questioned a credit, refund or an additional flight they said no and offered no assistance. Finally, they called security when I asked to speak to someone else."
