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."
Cons: "Volaris airline didn’t even receive the confirmation of the flight I purchased"
Pros: "My experience was so terrible I don’t have anything positive to say."
Cons: "1. The original flight I purchased was less than $100, Volaris cancelled it and the only flight available for me to purchase was then $150. 2. After I purchased the 2nd flight, I called within seconds because I noticed my mother’s name was on the ticket instead of mine! I had previously purchased her flight and somehow the kayak site had auto populated her name, i know for a fact did I did not type in her name, it is longer Han mine and has a middle name, i don’t even have a middle name. I think it was justfly, the third party who sent the confirmation email, I explained the situation, they took my contact information and since I had just called they would reach out to Volaris to see if they could change it to my name, and would reach back out to me within a few days. They never called/emailed me back. When I called Volaris they charged me a name change fee off $80+... I don’t know if anyone cares about customer service at Kayak, I have been purchasing all my personal flights through Kayak since 2007, this is by far the worse ticketing/airline experience I have ever had. Also, Volaris charged me $10 for my backpack that I store underneath the seat in front of me! They are a terrible airline, that straight out rips people off. This is the last time I fly with them, and probably last time I use Kayak."
Cons: "El equipaje"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"
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: "Give the drinks at least for free"
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: "El abordaje fue muy rapido"
Cons: "Que sean más puntuales"
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"
Cons: "Get the forms to fill up"
Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Staff was joking around, lot of people didn't respect the sites on tickets so it was a mess, instead of a solution, some persons were finding a sit before take off. The crew didn't took responsibility."

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

Cons: "No need to get to the gate 1hr30 before take off."
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."
Cons: "Luggage delayed at least two hours. Waiting for it still! This is nuts."

Cons: "No comments"
Cons: "The workers telling me I can’t listen to music"
Cons: "I was havin a bit of a problem loading mr boarding pass when we started boarding. Instead of helping the gate attendant, whom I found fairly arrogant, told me to get out of the line and said I would be boarding last. I expressed that such instruction was nor acceptable since I had paid the priority boarding fee. When I finally uploades the boarding pass (withput their help, I was alloewd to go through only to find out that everyone was boarding a bus to take us to a remote location. So what is the point of charging priority boardong if everyone boards at the same time? If ypu are charging for something you are obligated to deliver what you charged for."
Pros: "Easy reservation and economical"
Cons: "Nothing g I like it all"
Cons: "Tried to pre check a day before the flight using Volaris app and wasn't able to complete the process, as the app was timing out and it was forcing me to buy a seat in the plan, which I wasn't interested in. It seems to me that the airline is trying to nickel and dime you in every opportunity they have as they wanted to charge us 50 USD extra as our carry on luggage was under the 22 LB restriction but our backpack added 2 pounds. I have never seen an airline that is weighting each and every passengers backs and purses during the boarding process to see how much more money they can get per flight. Also, I found it kind of funny that after take off the flight attendants were selling the empty seats in the front which didn't had more leg room (not first class) but were just closer to the cabin. You are already charging for sodas, CAN YOU JUST STOP THERE?"
Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"
Cons: "No legroom Very, very warm in the cabin"
Cons: "Everything. The flight was cancelled by Volaris at very short notice without offering an acceptable alternative. At great additional expense, I had to book an alternative flight with a different airline. What are you going to do to compensate me?"

Cons: "The system to check your baggage in wasn’t working and they had us standing in line for 40 min and when it finally started working, they couldn’t cope with so many (angry) customers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat cushion had sunk in so it did not support me. I’m 135 lbs. space was cramped."
Pros: "Flight got dekayed, staff neber smiled, rude!!! And i have neber felt such tublences in my life time. Flight attebdants did not bother to say thank you or one smile but talk to others of their own i find it rude!!!! I asked fkr water, brought to me 10 min late and was not cold or fresh in a plastic cup???"
Pros: "Buying the extra space is worth it."
Cons: "Volaris didn’t tell us what happened and didn’t tell us we were going to board late."
Cons: "The bad is the rules on the baggage"
Pros: "Well received and very helpful during check-in of luggage."
Cons: "They changed the boarding gate and i missed the announcement."

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!"

I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"

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!

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.
