Pros: "I slept the whole way, so wouldn't know other than that they didn't bug me"
Cons: "First time on Alaska in 30 years, still impressed. The seat had plenty of leg room which is rare on other airlines."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and instead of getting a cancellation notice, I received a “your flight has been updated” email which indicated that my flight was changed from Wednesday to Friday. Unacceptable!!!"
Cons: "Great flight back"
Pros: "Empty plane so lots of space to lounge and quick boarding"
Cons: "Sat on runway for hour after plane landed, just waiting for a gate. How is this even possible? With no offer of beverages or food. Or updates. Crew was hardly seen maybe once or twice on a six hour flight. When asked to take trash, they would reply, we are only doing drinks at the moment."
Cons: "Really bumpy flight. And flight was late."
Pros: "Nothing I can think of at the moment."
Cons: "I didn't like anyt of it."
Pros: "Seats were decently comfy. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Delayed almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Paid for and reserved a premium seat 6 weeks before flight but got reassigned to a non-premium seat upon check-in. I had to call customer care for a refund of the premium upgrade. No more live TV unlike the old Virgin America."
Pros: "Movies were free"
Cons: "We were delayed for over three hours, then food was delayed after we not eating for hours and hours. The seats are the smallest seats I’ve ever sat in on a plane. Can barely fit a small carry on sized bag under the seat in front of me. Ran out of food less than half way through the flight. Offered zero compensation."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and friendly yet they give you your space. I know there is no personal space in an aircraft however it felt like it. Great job."
Cons: "They cancelled my 5:30 pm flight and text me that they put me on a 6a.m. flight the next morning without offering me a hotel or anything. I had to make new arrangements myself and the only option was to fly out earlier in the day and lose a day of sightseeing and time with family that I made the trip for in the first place. I had to race to the airport to get there in time. It ruined our trip."
Cons: "That there wasn’t anyone to meet us at the gate and we had to wait on the plane."
Pros: "The service, The Flight attendant was sooo nice. The food was great and the seats were comfortable. The time flew by."
Cons: "Auxiliary generator broken so plan got hot very quickly. Flight was 2.5 hrs delayed due to another mechanical failure. And then once we were in air they generously notified us that the WiFi was broken. Utter garbage."
Pros: "Virgin plane, flight crew great"
Cons: "No headphones, no snacks. Tray tables not clean."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/vegan options for meals. In 2018 it’s unnacceptable to have ZERO veggie options, especially on a flight to LA. Come on! I ended up having to pay for 2 meals that I could only eat parts of. And it took more than 1 HOUR for them to bring me these meals. I’ve never had to wait more than 5 mins for a meal, that I PAID for, to be delivered to my seat. I was starving, forced to waste money on meals I couldn’t fully eat AND had to wait over an HOUR to receive them. I am beyond disappointed."
Pros: "Seats, movie selection, drinks"
Cons: "No headphones available both ways and my AirPods don’t work with system. Flight attendants this leg were not so friendly."
Pros: "I didn’t know what to expect but I had an excellent trip. Enough leg room for a five hour flight. The entertainment was excellent, many choices of movies. No food was provided, you have to pay for any food or snack. You are given a cup of soda not the whole can. But I came prepared with food and drink. Overall, very good airline!"
Cons: "No food or snack are provided unless you purchase it!"
Pros: "Alaska is great don’t become united or American"
Pros: "The crew is kind and I appreciated their service while flying"
Cons: "For my first time flying with them, you would hope that your luggage makes it to your final destination. Since it didn’t, many plans in Hancock had to be rearranged and my ride has to rearrange her schedule. Not to mention, I had to rearrange my schedule again just to pick it up at the airport the next day."
Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"
Cons: "Passenger next to me seated in the aisle seat had a seat belt extension and needed two seats. I was in the middle and had a very uncomfortable flight. His arms were on my side and fortunately my husband was in the window seat and I leaned into him the entire time. The mans wife was not next to him but across the aisle and I understand why! He also had very poor hygiene."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everthing they got delayed in L.A so that mess up or connecting flight to cebu come on now if we are able to wait for your crew why cant u wait for your paying customers for 10 mins more?"
Pros: "Clean airplane. Seats are leather which I prefer to fabric ones. I like the adjustable head rest."
Cons: "Not crazy about having to take the shuttle to airport after deplaning."
Pros: "Good customer service before after and during the flight."
Pros: "Great crew and good service"
Cons: "Flight was late. Seats were small and cramped. At LAX, had to wait on board 20 minutes for bus to immigration. Then had to stand on bus for 15 minutes while drivers chatted outside. Immigration was a nightmare at LAX. Never again."
Cons: "I haven't flown a first class this poor ever. No blankets, we were not offered drinks until we were at cruising altitude, no magazines, felt very dirty and unkept. Food was less than desirable. Alaska needs to improve their overall service and cabins."
Pros: "Great prices, comfortable seats, enough space, and no extra fees for the additional bag I checked in. the staff members were also very polite, welcoming, knowledgeable, and helpful."
Pros: "Direct flight from DCA to LAX"
Cons: "No easy way to watch movies on long flight, delayed departure and arrival."
Pros: "My seat was in the premium class somehow and I loved it. Perfect timing with boarding and seating. The crew was very attentive and kind."
Cons: "It was a 6 hour flight with no meal provided, only two small cookies. It was an evening flight."
Pros: "The person next to my wife was snoring for three and half hours and spilled coffee on her, besides that it was OK. I have had way better from your Alaska Airlines ..."
Cons: "I just told you..."
Pros: "First time able to fly direct to Havana. Flight was underbooked, so had the chance to have a whole row for myself. Food for purchase options good. Free wifi for T-mobile customers and plugs to charge devices a plus."
Cons: "Nobody could tell me in advance to which terminal in Havana was the flight arriving. It goes to terminal 2, which is a smaller and ugly place. Especially returning, not many options to buy last minute things, and while there is wifi, they were not selling the cards!"
Pros: "Cheese & fruit, not full plane"
Cons: "Trying to connect to wifi"
Pros: "My flights arrived early on both ends of a round trip—loved it! Plus, it was great having more leg room than the average airline offers. I'm over 6 feet tall. Leg room is a VERY big deal for folks like me."
Cons: "On the return trip, my plane taxied on the runway for over 30 minutes due to a conga line. As a result, an early arrival pretty much became an on-time arrival, so I'll give Alaska the benefit of the doubt."
Pros: "Best cheeseburger ever. Who would have thought..."
Cons: "The length of the flight. Maybe shorten it to less than 2 hours... >; ^) Ok... Really the only complaint was I was unaware of the non-reclining seats in front of the emergency row when booking the flight in. If the website notifies your when picking seats, it is very inconspicuous."
Pros: "Really good flight crew. They pointed the plane right at LAX."
Cons: "I wanted a cheeseburger but they sold out. Didn't see any movies that I wanted to watch."
Pros: "seat comfortable"
Cons: "ticket price"
Cons: "Cheaper price"
Cons: "Lots of passenger we were cold we needed a blanket and there were no more ."
Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"
Cons: "Flight delayed four hours. Missed connection. Stuck in El Salvador overnight. Informed that A representative from Avianca would meet me at the airport to take me and others to a pre-arranged hotel. Immigration will not let me pass to baggage until the Avianca representative arrives. Still waiting."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When they were giving safety instructions we couldn’t see the videos. I’m glad nothing happened. They manage to fix the issue with the entertainment after dinner."
Cons: "The particular seat I was in was horrible."
Pros: "The entertainment and food!"
Cons: "Not having to wait 4.5 hrs due to mechanical issues :("
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Pros: "World's worst business class both directions. I can honestly say I have never had worst airline food. There is no level of service. You don't get a drink for 90 minutes into flight ithen the flight attendants height for the rest of the flight and never come out again in Business."
Cons: "Try bringing drinks around. Refill the bar. Provide cups."
Cons: "Newer aircraft"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed the flight by 7 hours and there wasn’t an available gate when we landed. We had to wait another hour to deplane"
Cons: "We waited for 5 hours in El Salvador airport"
Pros: "This was the second time I was flying on this flight and it was great. Crew was awesome on the plane"
Pros: "My first time flying on Avianca. American based carriers should take a look at Avianca’s playbook. Free hot towel given after take off, free pillow and blanket, a meal served with out a fee. Flight attendants make up and hair professionally styled, flight attendants offering to place bags in overhead bins. Customs forms handed out an hour into the flight not the last 30 minutes."
Cons: "Avianca overbooked the flight by 10 passengers. They would not board the flight until they got 10 volunteers to except only $240 voucher for delaying their flight by one day. It took them three hours to accomplish that. The hot food had been delivered on time to the plane, so that also sat for three hours. By the time it was served during the flight it had turned to rubber. This was all together a dreadful experience. We missed our connecting flight in Los Angeles and Avianca airlines provided no help on that. ."
Pros: "This airline was horrible with crew that was highly unkind and stole our duty free products."
Cons: "Crew, service, poor attitude, inability to help passengers. Never retrieved duty free products that we paid for."
Pros: "Movie selection was good, power outlets were helpful."
Cons: "I'm 6'2 and there just isn't enough leg room to relax especially when person in front of you puts seat back."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have had the pleasure to take. Thank you so much! The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Cant complain! After taking this flight I will definitely look for more flights with your airline!"
Pros: "The plane is amazing"
Cons: "Crew was uptight and not responsive, food was awful and there was no vegetarian option,"
Pros: "Seats are comfy and having movies for the flight is nice."
Cons: "Food isn't great, but it's included free of charge."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to."
Pros: "I liked the food and caring staff."
Pros: "Service, food & comfort are unmatched! staff kind & professional. couldnt ask for more."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Pros: "Truthfully, nothing."
Cons: "Get attendants that speak English on a flight to LAX and who do their job. It was impossible trying to get water. Not sure what the delay was once we landed, but it's nearly 1 hour later and we are still on the plane and the doors aren't open. We are thirsty, especially considering we couldn't get water while on the flight. Will never fly avianca again."

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "We did not know our ticket-price included breakfast. However, the flight had no vegetarian option, so we passed."
Pros: "Prompt service"
Cons: "For the amount of money paid for business class the quality of food should be an embarrassment. Not to mention the quality of movies and variety offered."
Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."
Pros: "efficient flight, good/helpful flight attendants, arrived early, great flight"
Cons: "poor soft drink selection, mediocre food"
Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

Cons: "Screen didn't work properly"
Pros: "Like the non-stop flight. It saves a lot of time."

Pros: "Food, seats, entertaiment, customer service"
Cons: "The baggage took almost half hour to come out, I missed my car in the rental because of that."
Pros: "When Taca was managing it was a total disaster: Now under Avianca we experienced great courtesy from the crew, acceptable food and snacks, and prompt service. Taca took the prices to the ceiling and it was a shame to pay 900.00dls for a trip to El Salvador.to make it worst they threw peanuts and soda y our trays, which was poor second class service. It took us almost 10 years to return to Avianca/Taca. but now we are pleased. Definitely your best point is CUSTOMER SERVICE. ( pRICES STILL HIGH). tHANK YOU."
Cons: "VOLUME ON THE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE TOO LOW, AND HARD TO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THEY RUSH, CREW SHOULD SPEAK SLOW, PAUSED AND CLEAR ON BOTH LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY IN ENGLISH SO TO MAKE IT UNDERSTANDABLE FOR ALL."

Pros: "Awesome"
Pros: "The plane needed more leg room."

So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."

Cons: "Lack of food/snack choices. Seem like a shortage on ice."
Pros: "I was booked for the late flight. There was an earlier flight with space. But I had to pay $200/seat to get to the earlier flight. WHY? Why make a family of 5 way several more hours? Why can't you be like Southwest?"

Pros: "The staff tried their best to help out with the situation. They passed out waters and apologized. I always love the Delta entertainment (so many great selections)!"
Cons: "Stuck in the plane without AC for an hour! We were stuck behind 14 other planes in line to take off and I understand delays happen but the AC wasn't working for some reason and it was extremely hot. The passengers were all super uncomfortable. I wish if they knew we were going to be delayed that they would let us just wait at the gate vs. suffer in the sauna plane."

Pros: "The crew was attentive & good; my meal was good and I enjoyed the wine served. my seat was comfortable to sit in."
Cons: "For business class, I expected my seat to recline more. The footrest didn't extend much, and it wasn't really conducive to sleeping... my feet/legs were very uncomfortable.

Cons: "I don't understand why we go through security and then need to clear out of the gate and go through security all over again. That was strange to me"
Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. Poor variety of movies to choose from. Not enough options of movies and TV shows to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing."
Pros: "Friendly staff was there all along the flight. There wasn't a moment where the crew members weren't making sure you needed something."
Cons: "The recently released movies selection was very limited other airlines have a bigger selection of movies"
Pros: "The crew of Copa Airlines were very cordial and professional."
Pros: "El personal muy amable. El vuelo salió a tiempo y llegó bien. La comida buena."
Cons: "I already wrote this in their customer feedback, and I haven't gotten a response."
Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Crew not attentive enough. Pilot overshot the runway while landing at LAX and had to reroute causing delays."
Pros: "On time, Good Food and attention from the crew."
Cons: "No pude reclinar el asiento. Estaba roto. Asiento 27F"
Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."
Cons: "Flights were delayed"
Cons: "The cabin is very dirty and the ear phone ad touch screen doesn't work properly"
Pros: "Food was good but the amount was small. They made an effort to accimodate passangers very comfotably. Timely and corteous."
Cons: "They could ofer pellows and blanckets."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth from boarding to landing- everything and everyone was great!"
Cons: "Everything was great, no complaints here!"
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendants. Entertainment didn't work. Purchased two tickets but were not able to sit next to one another although we had confirmed assigned seats next to each other. For long flights, these things make a difference."
Pros: "Great inflight service"
Cons: "15 minutes waiting in line for boarding"
Pros: "Great in flight service"
Cons: "Not so friendly people at front counter"
Pros: "Good service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Got sat next to a fat person both on the way down there and in the way back."
Cons: "The most unprofessional crew I have ever encountered."
Pros: "I liked how helpful the people at check in were, how comfortable the flight was and the fact that food and drinks are still offered, beat part was the movie options. Would without a doubt choose this airline again"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Not having to pay for first luggage."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Flight amenities like movies and internet"
Cons: "A little more friendly staff"
Pros: "The crew!"
Cons: "Only not being able to teleport!"
Pros: "Everything after takeoff was fine, except where plane landed, extremely far from terminal, even by bus."
Cons: "We had an almost 5 hour flight delay! Got to Los Angeles after 1am and hotel, after having to go through customs, after 2 am!! Bus ride from plane to terminal once landed is extremely long."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food, entertainment"
Pros: "Great service and comfort"
Pros: "Service and smooth flight"
Cons: "Champagne instead of tequila"
Pros: "I got food, and entertainment"
Cons: "Less check up, they literally checked my passport 5 times and delayed the flight for 20 minutes which made me be late for my class"
Pros: "New airplain . Got upgrade to Club premier"
Cons: "Get on time . Boarding process"
Pros: "I fly a lot for business so I have seen my fair share of issues. I can honestly say AeroMeixco compares to a bad budget airline in the USA if anything goes bad."
Cons: "Hard to believe a national airline can be so unorganized. When you ask staff why the info board does not get updated or HAS WRONG INFORMATION, they just shrug it off by saying “This is Mexico, sorry”. Truly inexcuseable. Even their website has wrong “real-time” info; showing the flight is in Mid air while we are trying to find out which gate we should go to. Never again."
Cons: "I was not happy to be told that I could not take my carry-on in the plane because the plane was supposably full. Several people that came after me had their carry-ons and there was space. My carry-on bag was a gift and it was damaged just like I told the attendees it would happen."
Pros: "Great"
Pros: "good servide aboard,great flight,very pro crew."
Pros: "Flight was on time; movies were easily available; seats were comfortable; staff was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Loved that they let me board an earlier flight to LAX"
Cons: "Food was insubstantial"
Pros: "Food was good & entertainment with a good movie."
Cons: "Boarding was as always too long and the arrival to Tom Bradley terminal is always a pain in the neck nowadays."
Pros: "We got to our destination"
Cons: "Everything else. Check-in was horrendously slow, customer service nonexistent, they checked in our carry on so they could charge for overweight, and I was forced to board while I was waiting for food only to wait a whole another hour before we actually took off. Flight was delayed 1.5hrs"
Cons: "Service and food were very bad"
Cons: "No AeroMexico staff at Lima airport when we arrived, as recommended, 4 hours before our flight. No place to check in bags until 3 hours before boarding, and that point there was a huge line."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Cons: "I was sent to 2 different locations in the airport and missed my flight because of incompetence so I had to pay $1200 extra for another flight to get home."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, even in economy. Personal entertainment at each seat with a good selection of movies and easy way to navigate to English language. The flight attendants were very nice, and they provided not only drinks but also a full snack tray to each person. Flight was right on time and announcement were in Spanish and English which was important for me as I don't speak Spanish.."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed"
Pros: "Puntuality"
Pros: "service"
Cons: "food and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "The people from aeromexico is like they were mad or having a bad day very bad service overall"
Pros: "Crew was nice, check in people was nice too"
Cons: "The zonnes for boarding are not respected at all. The crew its handling people's documents in a rush and don't have the time to check what groups are boarding. The food was way too little. I've travel hundreds of times. This was the smallest meal I've ever had"
Pros: "the plane on the return flight was spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "our departure flight was delayed for over 1 hours and our return flight was delayed for over 2 hours. They blamed the weather for the delay on the return flight but all other flights were departing on time or with only a 30 min delay. Aeromexico flights were the only ones being delayed for long periods of time."
Cons: "I didn't like that Aeromexico didn't want to change my flight I had an family emergency and they don't care they just told me they cannot change my flight at all"
Pros: "Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed like have little attitude. Their attitude doesn't only express by verbal it even expresses by their eye contact and body language ."
Pros: "Good customer service"
Cons: "Can do better on the snacks"
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: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing was bad."
Cons: "Didn't board on time"
Pros: "I loved that they still provide you food. No one else does that these days"
Cons: "I had to board a bus both at LAX and Guadalajara to board the plane."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and the liked the movies they have available."
Cons: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "Did not like anything about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hrs in Huatulco, due to President of Mexico flying in and air space not allowed. this caused us to miss our connecting flight in Mexico City to LAX. AeroMexico supervisor in Mexico City was not going to accomodate us at all. We had 12hrs until the next flight out. We asked the supervisor to check in our luggage-this was denied. We asked the supervisor to allow us to visit the VIP lounge to rest and this was denied. Supv did not assist us in locating a hotel. We spend 12hrs in Mexico City airport, dragging our luggage around until we were allowed to check it in, in the middle of the night. We have flown AeroMexico numerous times before. In June 2016 we purchased "6" tickets for Cancun with AeroMexico. In 2017, we will NOT be flying AeroMexico. We will book on a different airline."
Pros: "We had a terrible experience with Aeromexico. Our flights on another airline were delayed and as soon as we knew we went to the desk for Aeromexico, where staff had no authority. We then phoned and got absolutely no help at all and ended up completely forfeiting our flights and booking with another airline."
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is very slow."
Pros: "Everything was good on LAX - MEX and MEX - LAX flights except the march trough terminal 2 at LAX to the bus to Bradley Terminal for customs at midnight. Not sure if customs are available at terminal 2 LAX at other times."
Cons: "Outbound on the flight from MEX to LAP seat 2A I think. Was extremely cold. Cold air was bling on me from a distribution duct just above the window. On the inbound flight LAP to MEX sitting in 20B I think, it was very warm... This would have been ok if the adjustable air vents worked... Neither vent for either seat A or B would open.. Crew were great, this may be Embraer problem. (Everyone tells me that they usually freeze on that flight!)"
Pros: "Despite poor flight schedule I made it on my connecting flight and it all worked out in the end."
Cons: "Kayak should allow at least 2 hours of transfer time when booking flights through LAX. I had to go from one terminal to another AND go through immigration and security. In order to make sure I had enough time to make the connecting flight, I didn't check in my luggage which lead to me having to minimize liquids and pastes in my luggage (no vanilla extract or tequila). Also while making the transfer I felt rushed and stressed out. I might search for tickets using Kayak but I would not buy tickets directly from Kayak if my route involves a transfer at an airport that I am not familiar with."
Pros: "Nothing, as I was not allowed entry onto flight"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was placed on stand by for no reason and was not accepted on the flight I had paid for"
Pros: "My husband's knees were pressed against the seat in front of him so much so as to cause indentations in his legs. fortunately the flight wasn't full and we were able to spread out over 3 seats. It was still quite an uncomfortable flight for him."
Pros: "I loved having free food and not having to pay for my checked bag. Definitely a plus that will have me flying with Aeromexico again. The crew and staff were very nice and accommodating, so no complaints there."
Cons: "The headphone earbuds were terrible -- painful, even, and I had some trouble finding any music or movies I was interested in. The worst thing was that the layover was so long and it would be very nice to have some direct flights to Acapulco. I might be moving there, and flying through Mexico City from LAX took 13 hours from door to door, then 11 hours to return home. Not to my liking."
Pros: "Actually, I was upgraded to business. So that alone made it pleasant. But the fact that the plane was new was also nice and the flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "Everything went according to plan. Really enjoyed the meal that they served. Other airlines offer a drink and a small bag of pretzels or a cookie. It was very nice to have a small meal. Crew and plane were top notch."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very observant and offered to assist passengers even before being asked."
Cons: "The boarding process could be made more efficient."
