Airline reviews

Pros: "Service was great!"
Cons: "We were over an hour late to depart due to “Cosmetic” issues. Then we landed in Detroit to find out our landing gear might have an issue. Airport firefighter were standing by. We landed safely and crew was amazing."

Pros: "Crew members were so friendly!"

Pros: "Delayed flight, 4th times changing gates, airplane is too cold and no blanket offered, 5.5 flight with only biscoff and drinks offered."
Cons: "They should at least offered blanket and small meal included with the fare"

Pros: "Very well organized and polite and friendly staff."
Cons: "The airline seats were okay but there was very little personal space. They did not have video screens—you had to use your own smartphone to view videos. No meals were offered for an almost 4 hr flight. Maybe that’s normal, I don’t know. They charged $30 per suitcase — should allow 1 free."

Cons: "Wasn’t able to access the in flight entertainment via the phone app since they did not have screens on the flight. Luckily I had some Netflix downloads on my phone to keep me entertained ."

Pros: "Everything goes so smoothly.friendly crew. Good coffee."
Cons: "Nothing. Tight squeeze."

Pros: "Aircraft was clean and comfortable. Crew was efficient and friendly. The whole experience was excellent!"
Cons: "There was lots of entertainment available but plain old music was not an option. What if I don't want to watch a movie or TV, just listen to music!"

Pros: "Boarding was strange - it was still in groups although we were shuttled to our airplane. I was glad it wasn’t a packed flight as I wasn’t smushed by my neighbors in the seats. Very little turbulence, smooth taking off and landing. I like that I was able to watch free movies without having to pay for WiFi."
Cons: "The shuttle broke down on the way to the airplane and had to wait for another. The good part was that we didn’t wait very long (less than 10 minutes) for another to arrive. No free WiFi."

Pros: "How they saw my needs comfort me. She even came from around the desk to hung me. I am so thankful for all who assisted in this time of need . They are great."

Pros: "Timeless"
Cons: "I am small and there was very little room. I probably won’t fly Alaskan again."

Pros: "Very late sound didn’t work"

Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and the flight was on time. Very comfy accomodations."

Pros: "everything was great!"

Cons: "We have a service dog onboard, and the flight attendant was brusque when giving instructions about how he can fly, which came off as rude. All of her instructions were unnecessarily snappy, but that’s the one that struck me most. He’s a service dog. He’s allowed to be here. Seats are too hard/rigid, and I wasn’t able to get much sleep due to discomfort/screaming babies. I don’t blame the babies though."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly staff"

Cons: "I didn’t have any complaints for this flight."

Pros: "Fan of the in flight complementary drinks, very friendly flight attendants (Rudy was fantastic) and plenty of space!"

Cons: "Flight attendants not very personable."

Pros: "It was my first time using Alaska, this trip. I liked your airline overall! Clean."
Cons: "On my flight home to Detroit I was seated in the back. The flight attendants did nothing but gossip about other flight attendants (good and bad), their home life,etc. One rammed me with the cart & their body, woke me up, didn't even apologize. Just felt it was rude. I pay for my flight. I was trying to rest on my 4 hour flight before I had to tend to daughter who had cancer, I need the rest. And for what I paid, I should be able to. Not listen to Alaska's drama within."

Pros: "No complications, no delays, no unnecessary stuff."
Cons: "I didn't like the sales pitch for the company credit card which charges a huge interest rate. Why inflict that on all of us who already have credit cards."

Pros: "Very pleasant crew."

Pros: "Ease of boarding; device plugin at my seat."
Cons: "The stupid bags fees! C'mon there is absolutely NO reason to charge $25 per bag. That's just a con job to squeeze more money out of us."

Pros: "Good snack selection & free wifi"
Cons: "Plane had TVs but they weren’t allowing us to use them"

Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."

Pros: "Perfect landing and great flight!"

Pros: "Jet Blue is our airline by choice. We have always had very good service from their staff and the only time there was a change because of weather, we were notified in order to make a change to our flight. We will continue to choose Jet Blue whenever possible."
Cons: "My only complaint with all of the airlines is allowing people to check their bags free at the gate when others have done the required thing of paying for checked bags. It is obvious that people are taking advantage if this. It would be great to see something more fair take place."

Pros: "I was impressed that the entire team seemed to care that we were being inconvenienced. It was a very nice touch that refreshments were being offered at the gate and that we were told when the next update would be. All updates were on time. In addition, our captain (Mark) came to the gate and spoke to all of us expressing his concern for what had happened to us. He also made a nice presentation on the plane and got us going right away. The free ear buds were also a great touch. Even though the situation was bad, you made a customer for life with the way your team responded to the situation. Well done!"
Cons: "Our flight was more than 2 hours late. :("

Cons: "Was not on time."

Pros: "Flight arrived at destination 20 min early. Crew was very pleasant. Plenty of leg room in upgraded seats."

Pros: "Leg room was quite good."
Cons: "My long delay 2 hours and 15 minutes"

Cons: "I was not emailed or texted a copy of my boarding pass. I did receive for trip from detroit to Boston but not the return trip."

Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Beverage and snack service. Overhead storage. Leg room."
Cons: "Delayed departure. Poor planning for boarding. No offer for customer satisfaction."

Pros: "Really comfortable seats and great snacks for free"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Mother Nature gave us grief but the crew made the situation very tolerable. They were attentive and accommodating and were sincere when they apologized for the delay...that wasn’t even their fault!!"
Cons: "No WiFi or movies. Oh well...snacks were great."

Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early!

I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The TV"
Cons: "They advertise free Wifi, couldn't get it to work at all. They did not offer everyone drinks or a snack. It was an early flight, a snack and water would have been lovely but didn't see that from the crew. They also didn't let my girlfriend and I sit next to each other after requesting so."

Cons: "Normally I don’t complain, but from the jump this flight was a nightmare. I fly JB all the time but this time was not nearly as enjoyable. I asked my attendant 2 times to buy headphones. She never brought them and maybe she forgot but She sat in the front on her phone the whole flight which was just irritating. After being delayed (for no apparent reason) Then having to sit for 20+ minutes because of a “jet bridge that’s too cold” (aren’t these made for the out doors?) this JB flight was less than satisfactory."

Cons: "The entertainment device failed to work. . Screen crashed ."

Cons: "Delayed flights."

Pros: "Plenty of space, very polite, seats are comfortable and complimentary snacks & beverages regardless of flight time span. Can’t best it."
Cons: "A blanket would be nice :)"

Cons: "Aer Lingus, Did not operate this particular Flight . Equip Problems"

Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."

Pros: "on time"

Cons: "Hour late."

Pros: "Good flight was treated well and felt welcome with refreshments and snacks. The way it should be!"

Cons: "Unfair refund policy. We tried to cancel MONTHS ahead of time, upon early departure from our Peace Corps service. I don't feel airlines should have no refund policies starting from the date of purchase. There should be a window for refunds."

Pros: "From boarding to hospitality of all the crew members and the ease of the flight, It made it a great experience! I am not one who likes to fly but will definitely fly this airline again when the opportunity arises!"

Cons: "Terribly cold flight. When asked for a blanket, they wanted $5, which I couldn't pay because they wouldn't accept cash. 2 hours of complete misery. :("

When I got there, was directed (again) to the other end of the terminal...10 minute dash....and almost missed my connecting flight. Flight crew was nice....calmed me down but lady in seat next to me was rude.....not anyone's fault but hers :)"

Pros: "Service. Friendliness. Atitude."

Pros: "I had a lost bag and the baggage people were some of the most helpful I've ever encountered. The flight was nice and well done, but in the midst of some hard bag stuff, your people were great. In particular. Jennifer Novak was the lady who helped me in Detroit and was outstanding."

Pros: "You need urgently to improve the taste of vegetarian dishes."
Cons: "No movies??! For real? In a very long trip?"

Pros: "Good flight. Good food. Went well"
Cons: "My surfboard got damaged"

Pros: "lots of turbulence!"

Cons: "we were delayed and so we were going to miss our connection flight so we had to come back to the airport the following morning just to find out the same flight was delayed AGAIN due to "crew tiredness" Very dissapointed"

Pros: "The seats ARE LIE FLAT"
Cons: "The service is poor. seats need maintenance. The staff treats you poorly. It was like flying with people who dont like you"

Cons: "I did not received my luggage cost me 500 dollars in buying new cloths in order to attend the party I was invited to"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Aeromexico checked my bag and instead of un clicking the belt on my luggage to open it they cut it off. When I picked up my bag at baggage claim at my final destination they didn't close my luggage and my clothes were hanging out!! Ridiculous. Also th flight attendants were rude and unprofessional!!!

Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "A delayed flight from Santa Marta to Bogota due to bad weather in Bogota. Surprisingly, the connecting flight to New York left on time of course. Also it was drizzling on arrival to Bogota. I still suspicious that they blamed for rain to cover up their mechanical/ management issues or they intentionally delayed our flight so we can miss the flight to New York which they over booked and cut their loss. Anyway, I needed to arrange a hotel myself and Aviance claimed it was solely due to bad weather. I got what I paid for. Their rate was lower for the risk of their disorganized service and possible dishonesty. Or it can be really bad weather earlier. But one of UK passenger told me her daughter couple was in Santa Marta a few weeks ago and they went through the exact same issue. They might be unlucky family members go through the same rare situations. Now I got why Avianca gets bad reviews."

Pros: "food was ok, seats ok"
Cons: "no wi fi movie selection was limited"

Pros: "check in was a breeze. United had very long lines.....everywhere we went in Central America"

Cons: "Bad customer services. My entertainment system was not working so, I called the flight attendant. They were chatting inside the kitchen and one of them responded after 15-17 minutes telling me that someone will reset my monitor... never happened."

Cons: "They refused to let me on the aircraft claiming that I was late, but I wasn't. They proceeded to let other people on. Then they said they could not put me on the next flight because it was full. The only choice they gave me was to purchase another ticket for $1,000.00. I had no choice but to purchase another ticket. When I got on the plane there was a myriad of empty seats."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled at the last minute due to a broke plane in San Salvadore. However, the staff booked us on a flight with Copa Air. They were extreemly professional, kind and accomodating. Thank you very much. The Copa flight was outstanding service and comfort."

Pros: "Confort, limpieza y servicio"

Pros: "on time and good customer service"

"Broken tvs, unhelpful staff, confusing communication preventing smooth travel experience."

"Me and my son are first time travelers! And we had a AWESOME flight!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."

Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"

Pros: "Trip was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hour"

Pros: "The screens, quality, travel, attendants"

Pros: "Great crew! Very friendly!"

Pros: "It was great, friendly staff"

Pros: "Middle seats were not booked. Cabin appeared very clean. Bathrooms were kept tidy. Very friendly staff. Appreciated cold drinks and the snacks."

Cons: "The exit row door in 12B kept making a high pitch squealing noise...very unnerving"

Pros: "Flight experience was good"
Cons: "Delayed bording 1.5 hours due to staffing issues"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Having cocktails available on-board"

Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."

Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."

Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."

Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Food service"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Clear announcements, nicely stated mask rem8nders, center seats open"

Pros: "Very clean, kind w mask instructions, like boarding back to front"

Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."

Pros: "I love that the plane has extra space available between seats (with no one in the middle) & that everyone was encouraged to keep their mask on at all times."

Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"

Cons: "Comfier seats"

Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."

Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "Everything was just fine"

Cons: "We had a 2.5 hour delay because there was someone missing in the crew. It sounded like it hadn’t been properly planned for the flight so it was frustrating. However, once that person showed up, everything was great and the crew was very sweet"

Pros: "Covid safety protocols and people following was excellent."
Cons: "Serve alcohol :)"

Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."

Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."

Pros: "Great crew and friendly"

Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."

Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"

Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."

Pros: "Crew was night seat sucked plane was cramped"

Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good for now"

Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"

Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing considering the situation"

Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."

Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"

Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."

Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."

Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."

Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."

Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"

Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The disappointing issues were with the airport process."

Pros: "Puntualidad"
Cons: "Snacks"

Pros: "Aeromexico reopened the flight for us after we arrived late from another flight. This was hugely appreciated especially since we were traveling with three small children. We will now only fly Aeromexico Instead of Interjet or volaris"
Cons: "Great flight and airline"

Pros: "Comfy seats onboard Good selection of movies Decent food from MEX to SFO"
Cons: "I purchased ticket stating business class for both legs, but the first leg of my trip did not have a business class cabin at all. I did not get what i paid for!!!! My seat back IFE did not work at all. Boarding experience was terrible and took forever. The lounge MEX was overcrowded with non-functioning wifi"

Pros: "I love everything!!!!!"
Cons: "Nothing everything is great !!!!!"

Cons: "Delta is very nice"

Cons: "Inconsiderate about what is important to travelers."

Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Movie was good."
Cons: "WiFi and friendly staff. Staff at Guadalajara were inpatient and unfriendly so was the staff in Fresno"

Cons: "Pric"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and we received a nice breakfast."

Pros: "The ove"

Cons: "The layover was very long but Detroit is a very nice airport."

Pros: "I liked the little sandwich and coffee. It’s nice to get food on such a short flight."
Cons: "Hardly any leg room. If the person in front of you reclines their seat, it feels like they are sitting in your lap. No entertainment."

Pros: "Comfortable, prompt, clean."

Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable, smooth and overall satisfactory. They gave us a sandwich meal and there was some inflight entertainment (which I didn’t use)."
Cons: "I brought the same Samsonite carry on luggage piece that I’ve used on multiple major airlines (Avianca, United, American, Copa, etc.) with no problems, and AeroMexico says it’s too big, the wheels didn’t fit into the sizing bin. Super frustrating if one of the most popular luggage manufacture makes a “carry-on” bag, airlines should realize people will be arriving with the expectations that they can use it as a carry on. Anyways I’m out $58 both ways ($116). I will not fly with AeroMexico again because of this simple fact."

Pros: "Great service all around. I would recommend."

Cons: "They are changing their procedures and there was a bottle neck to do the check in. In previous years it was ok, this time it was terrible."

Pros: "I was really impressed with the friendly and efficient service from Aeromexico. First time flying them and really appreciated the experience - so much better than the service on US airlines."

Pros: "Easy, polite, genuine people, no fakes, no unnecessary restrictions."

Cons: "In general very poor customer service"

Pros: "Everything was really good"

Pros: "Great service, people are excellent at what the do."
Cons: "Paying too much for luggage. I can't believe that a second piece is more than double."

Cons: "Was not happy that the plane did not have individual screens for entertainment on the long flight."

Pros: "Food was good. Flight crew was friendly."

Pros: "Left early due to their boarding organization"
Cons: "Nice to be fed but very mediocre"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bad service!"

Pros: "The 787 leg from Santiago to Mexico City was fine. The 787 Dreamliner is a comfortable ride."
Cons: "The smaller plane used for the MEX to DEN leg had less entertainment options and no wifi."

Cons: "The crew was very rude, since the counter not helpful at all. The boarding was late."

Pros: "Everyone was polite & kind, and incredibly efficient."

Pros: "I enjoyed the movies and the accuracy of the flight time etc very much! It was super helpful during long flights."
Cons: "I couldn’t understand 90% of what anyone was saying due to it all being in Spanish which I found to be a little rude to be honest. You know you have a lot of English speaking only people on your flights yet you do not make any announcements in both Spanish and English like a lot of other airlines do."

Pros: "Overall trip was ok"

Pros: "Great seats with individual screens for free movies"
Cons: "No vegetarian option Long back up at Mexico City customs"

Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. The basic coach seat was roomy. Good selection of in flight movies and TV shows."
Cons: "The cabin needed a thorough cleaning."

Cons: "Boarding was very delayed. The flight was very delayed. There was never an explanation or acknowledgememt, of the delay and it seemed no effort to make up the delay while in the air. As a result, a great number of us missed our connections to Boston. Poor effort by AeroMexico and Delta"

Cons: "I was sent to Sala A & there was agate # 1 there; however, there was a second Sala A with a Gate #1 & from there my plane was boarding by the time I made it to the correct boarding gate it was too late for me to board the plane. I had to purchase another plane ticket in order for me to make it to the United States. It was a bad situation & the employees were very rude. They blame me & the manager never show his face to help me out. He could have at least given me a discount given the award situation. But, the customer service or will to help me was just not there."

Cons: "Flight left almost an hour late."

Pros: "They seemed to know what they were doing there."
Cons: "Our only checked bag didn't come until 2 days later. We had 3 bottles of tequila in that bag and the 2 high end bottles were stolen. We will never fly AeroMéxico again, and to top it off the last flight was on Delta. It's a joke that they even partnered up with AeroMéxico. I'm not happy that Kayak would even suggest this airline. Even though we are fluent in Spanish it didn't matter because the employees didn't know what they were doing anyways."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time"
Cons: "No veg option in food menu"

Pros: "we were shocked by how great the flight accommodations were, from the inflight entertainment to the food/beverage service to the flight attendants."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to fog. I was advised that there were 2 options. First, try to rebook for next available flight which would not happen until 3 days later. Refused and made arrangements for an alternate airline. Second option offered was a total refund. Days later when I requested the refund, I was told by Customer Service I was not entitled to anything. Can you help me get a refund?"

Pros: "On time and smooth boarding"
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "boarding and leaving plane, the wheel chair service, nice helpful crew, flight departed and landed on time, snack and beverage."
Cons: "landing at LAX was a bit jumpy/scary, airport construction - not Aero Mexico's fault though."

Pros: "I liked that they are attentive as my mother needs special attention for her disabiljty"
Cons: "We had a delay coming back due to a passangee that refused to get off and they kept us with no ac on...and getting back there was no one to help my mother with a wheel chair as well or our luggage"

Pros: "Hello, I checked in a dog in Detroit, The crew was great once they found out they can accept a dog. At first they were saying no because of partner with delta. I explain I booked the dog already and give all my required documents. Once in Mexico the documents were given to the authorities and when the crew in Detroit made copies they kept the originals and gave me the copies and they made me pay 1800 pesos for a vet to come and sign the paper.. I spoke to aeromexico in Mexico City and they said they are sorry but nothing can be done... This cause me my traveling money and 3 hours of very stressful times for me and my dog who had to stay in the box the whole time. Robin Martin"
Cons: "Included in the first box"

Cons: "Food, entertainment and space"

Cons: "Aeromexico dis not let me board my flight from Mexico to Vancouver. They said they couldn't clear my name and print me a boarding pass. Stuck at airport for 14hours and ended up flying aircanda to yvr the next morning. Terrible customer service/care. Never flying aeromexico again."

Pros: "Aeromexico puts delta, United, American to shame. Every time I fly with Aeromexico they have on-time flights, food and drinks included, friendly service and excellent price for tickets. No last second delays or flight rescheduling as happens with US carriers. I'll take Aeromexico ANY day over the shitty US airlines. And for those complaining about info not being readily available in English, it doesn't hurt to learn a little Spanish"
Cons: "They ran out of Corona."

Pros: "The expedite process and secured."

Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful. We ar3e booking more flights on this airlines! FOOD was AWESOME.... really!"
