Pros: "Everything it was so fast and excellent"
Cons: "The food in the airplane"

Pros: "the good serice"
Cons: "better plan es"

Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "More snacks"

Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, it took very long boarding and getting off the plane. People was standing when plane still taxiing and crew didn’t do nothing."

Cons: "Did not get the sense that check-in staff was terribly concerned about getting us checked in quickly."

Pros: "The staff are very nice and accommodating."

Cons: "I checked in on line but went to check in desk to make sure my bag wasn't too heavy and the man changed my seat! Then I went back and the next guy said I couldn't have my seat even though it was 2minutes later and gave me a new seat but a better seat. Then the first guy comes over to give me a boarding pass for my second flight and again he changed my seat to an awful seat. And I wanted to sit next to a friend from Mexico City to Lima so that seat change was really mean. Once one the plane the man in my original seat got an upgrade so I got to sit next to my friend about half way through the flight when she came to tell me about the empty seat when she came to the back of the plane to use the bathroom."

Cons: "All the announcements are in Spanish which makes it hard for everyone else to understand. Flight departure was delayed as well."

Pros: "Kindnesses and attentive at all time"

Cons: "Both planes delayed and carry on luggage lost"

Cons: "I love the service The workers there really helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfort,"
Cons: "Crew was really RUDE"

Cons: "We got premium economy seats but no priority boarding or priority bag drop as promised. Also, the entertainment system did not work."

Pros: "The seats were reasonably comfortable and the legroom was decent."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."

Pros: "They did all they were supposed to do. Good trip"

Pros: "The only 2 thing I liked was the flight was peaceful and the movies."
Cons: "No me gusta como me trataron uando le pregunté a las aeromosas donde estaba el l baño contestan como enojadas o cuando pregunté si el jamón del sándwich era d puerco o d pavo Y me contesto de mala gana q no sabía con un tono molesto. o cuando pregunté si tenía q llenar la forma q dan antes d bajar el avión y me contestaban enojadas uno respondían a mi pregunta. Y no es la primera vez q me pasa siempre son haci. Deberían tener más tacto para tratar a los clientes y ser más amables. Gracias a nosotros los q viajamos en avión ellAs tienen trabajo."

Pros: "I try to sit in the front of the aircraft, the leg room is great and you get to watch everyone who enters."

Pros: "arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "took an hour to taxi after landing no vegetarian options for food"

Pros: "The services on the counter"
Cons: "My flight was delayed"

Pros: "man being able to watch movies makes all the difference!"
Cons: "SEats too small...but that's pretty much any airline."

Pros: "Boarding time, entertainment, personnel."
Cons: "Losing connection flight and wait almost 11 hours overnight for next flight."

Pros: "costumer service"
Cons: "The way they operate now where you have to pay for checking luggage and that we depart 30 minutes late and Apparently Aeromexico is been having problems with the tickets they don’t work when you go to the scanner and you have to go back and print your boarding pass that’s a problem because you have to start back in the line"

Cons: "Terrible wait lines , espec ially at customs"

Cons: "Rows ridiculously close together."

Pros: "Actual flights were on time"
Cons: "The airline changed my flight a few days before my trip changing my layover from 2 to 15 hours, providing no form of compensation. I suspect they cancelled my original flight because it was not full. A trip with a 15 hour layover would have been cheaper originally. Mexico city airport has poor amenities and internet access."

Pros: "Food and drink offerings, the staff were professsional and courteous."
Cons: "TSA was a disaster, which is no reflection on this carrier but that experience tainted the trip. The plane seating was not comfortable. The entertainment offering was dated and deficient. The food option was sandwich or no sandwich."

Pros: "Efficient and friendly service."

Cons: "Our flight got changed and we received no notification. Instead of 1 stop we ended up with two. Two flights were delayed therefore we missed the third one. Just a terrible experience. The staff was very rude, had no people skills, and didn’t know how to explain the situation."

Pros: "Flight was delayed because of weather conditions I understand that is impossible to prevent, but the lack of communication with all the delays I left home 10:30pm Friday dec 1st and I’m still in Mexico City and I haven’t arrive to my destination. Here in Mexico City was a total mess, nobody knew anything and I run everywhere trying to get my flight but I got wrong info and i missed my flight! Had to wait 5 note hours in mex city and willl arrive midnight!"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever, I’m flying in business to bog and it a total misrepresentation in regards of the business seats I saw those flat beds in the website etc....I guess it depends of the itinerary but they should let you know about it! Will never ever flight with aeromexico again. The poor attitude of the employees! Sad"

Pros: "Everything specially the service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "No comentes"
Cons: "Nothing's"

Pros: "On time flight, extremely efficient crew, comfortable seats, entertainment, meal, drinks."
Cons: "Boarding, paid for upgrade but was second to last zone to board, leaving me to scramble for Room for carry on. Flight crew was friendly enough except for one, she seemed put off by everyone on board, but especially me. Lol. Basically threw the tray of food on my table and on the backside, pulled tray before I was done. She hopefully was having a bad day."

Cons: "On my way to Lima I flew through Mexico City. It took over three hours to get through customs and caused me to get to my gate minutes before the flight closed its gate. For this reason I made note to upgrade my flight so I could be close to the front of the plane and get to customs as quickly as possible. Aeromexico made me check my bag which is the SAME bag I came down with. Same size, same Weight. Their reasoning for this was because they had a full flight, yet I had paid extra to upgrade in the first place and their policy states you can bring on one carry on to store in the overhead. I'll likely miss my connection due to this. I will never fly Aeromexico again."

Pros: "- Personal Media Station - Food - Water served at least twice - Fast flight"
Cons: "- Not enough space to fit my carry-on - No self service for check-in in the airport."

Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to have snacks and drinks offered for free in this airline. The on-flight entertainment offers a pretty good selection for a wide variety of tastes. Good flight experience"

Pros: "Attendants were respectful and caring"
Cons: "Space between seats and rows."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible service, old planes, running 1 hour late, no entertainment"

Pros: "Price and promotions."
Cons: "The free wifi service had to many restrictions and it was hard to communicate with other services and with friends ,that await your status on the boarding room. Benito Juarez airport Mexico D.F"

Pros: "The crew was super professional"

Pros: "Crew was wood"

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: "Got me from point a to point b"
Cons: "Crew informing passengers better, being reimbursed for seats i paid for but couldn't sit in because of a plane change"

Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."

Pros: "On-time flight"
Cons: "- Worst seats ever. I felt that I was sitting on stones. Limites recline, limited legs space.No entertainment, no water. Worst boarding system EVER!!! ,No flight again, Do not fly this airline!!"

Cons: "Not pay to much for my luggage"

Cons: "Seats are a little hard no cushion"

Cons: "Deliver bags"

Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"

Pros: "Airplane crew was nice"
Cons: "Check in app did not work for my husband and we had a very hard time getting help in the airport with little information. We were casually told that we should have gotten to airport 3 hours prior to flight departure. We arrived over 2 hours prior with no bags to check in. I was also sick during this"

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!!!"

Cons: "Being timely"

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."

Cons: "There was hardly any space under the seats and between each row so it was pretty cramped. Because of this, the flight was not very comfortable."

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: "Flight left on time! No hassle with carryon"
Cons: "I hate paying for water. Legroom was ridiculously short."

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

Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 3 hours! Completely ruined out plans."

Pros: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "Nothing Volaris made us miss our flight and they charged us to be on the next flight tomorrow."
Cons: "Everything could be better."

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

Cons: "Maybe courtesy soft drinks and peanuts"

Pros: "Please don't travel with Volaris, extremely old seats I felt like I was seating on a wooden board with some rocks on it. No room leg. You won't get any help from the Staff at check-in. I was charged $10 to print your boarding pass, the machines to print the boarding pass didn't work."
Cons: "Volaris need to get new seats. Volaris charge you almost for even breathing, I am not kidding. They ask you to use the machines at the airport to print the boarding pass but their logo is not on this machines that's how they make $10 on each passenger. Bad experience."

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

Cons: "Excelente"

Cons: "The gate change of the flight was not properly notified."

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."

Pros: "I liked nothing, literally nothing."
Cons: "Between almost making us miss the flight because they couldn’t identify or scan the boarding passes THEY printed out (which were just little stickers on the back of our passports with no information), the flight was over 45 mins late! Additionally, the pilot said it was flight 911 to Los Angeles and then laughed and corrected himself to flight 900 - are you serious? Not a joke."

Pros: "Attentive, respectful, and on time! This airline has treated me very well."

Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "No real food"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: ", change in departure time, hurried boarding, crew with long facesrude kids all over"

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"

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."

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

Cons: "Nos mandaron a una terminal alterna, tuvimos que llegar a ella en un autobús, complicado el movimiento con niños."
