When we went to pick up the bags, one (both bags were brand new for this trip) was virtually destroyed, with multiple tears and rips - damage on each of the 6 sides of the bag.

Six months ago when I came to Mexico and my daughter’s fiancé died of a heart attack they gave me the worst service of my life. And now again today they’re completely 100% at fault for me missing my flight. I was seven hours at the airport waiting for the flight and they didn’t post it on the boards. They never put a gate up. Other people also missed the flight. They offered no compensation, they wouldn’t pay for a hotel or a shuttle, absolutely reprehensible. Do not do business with this company"

Pros: "First time flying Aeromexico. I've flown servers airlines in Latin America and this ranks among the best. Will likely fly with them again."
Pros: "The manager was really nice, and the customer service desk people were every nice too. I was compensated for being kicked off the flight, and they helped me re-book a direct flight to get home. The resolution was fine."
Cons: "Was kicked off my flight for some reason. It was not explained to me very well, but I gathered it was from another plane earlier in the day that was cancelled. I don't know how I was selected to be kicked off. The poor communication was very annoying. I stood at the counter for 45 minutes after the airline personnel took my STB ticket, and didn't tell me what was going on. Would have been a LOT more pleasant of they just told me the flight was full, and my name would be called if I was on the flight. Then I could at least sit down, instead of standing there for 45 minutes."

Cons: "Connecting flight was a nightmare. Airline did not accepted electronic boarding pass. They made me make a 1 hr. line to get a paper one. Couple of passengers and I almost lost flight. Volariis counter staff did not provided nor informed a paper boarding pass was needed to fly internationally when I told them I was traveling to Dallas."

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"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the boarding was confusing and took a long time."

Cons: "This was probably one of the worst flights I’ve ever had to deal with, the plane was 3 hours late causing me to miss my connection and having to buy a completely new flight. I’m very very displeased and they didn’t offer to help anyone get to gates with connections or for vouchers or refunds."

Cons: "The worst experience since, besides they weight your luggage before check-in, they do it again right before you take the airplane. The cost for register a luggage os 45usd!!!!! Wtf..."
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: "We had to pay $150 I’m extra charges for our luggage and carry-on."
Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"
Pros: "All thank you for your support. ☺"
Cons: "All attention to clients. Thank you"
Pros: "Primera y ultima vez que volamos con Volaris. Espantosos asientos tan cerca de cada uno. Parece qur estan transportando animales."
Pros: "flight left on time"
Cons: "seats had fairly limited legroom. but then again the price was inexpensive so i can't complain."
Pros: "Fast luggage checking, friendly crew and on time flight."
Pros: "The airfare is cheap but they nickle and dime you for everything else. I paid 30 dollars for 1.4 Kg above the set weight for the cabin carry-on yes they weighed my purse and carry on bag. But, my regular luggage was 5KG below the allowed rate. And they attached luggage tags them. They were charging about $5 dollars if you did not print out your boarding pass. I couldn’t because their website was inaccessible. It kept kicking you off. You couldn’t update yard your passapprt number Air attendants waited for a half hour before arrival for food service. And then they rushed you through it because they were yapping away during the flight and we were landing."
Cons: "NONE OF IT IT WAS AWFUL.!!!!"
Pros: "People are great."
Cons: "Seats are way too small. I was crippled after the hour flight. The web site does not work well. It is hard to order add on services like more luggage or a bigger seat."
Cons: "The fly was asking for money for mexican kids, that is not right"
Pros: "I like the customer care from the crew but the crew from the airport could have been more helpful in helping me figure out where I needed to go to catch my flight. The app also failed on me when I needed my boarding pass. But the flight and the crew that attended it did a fine job. The space is justifiable for the price of the ticket, unlike other airlines that boast value. As always the flight was on time. I didn't have any food or entertainment."
Cons: "The accessibility of the boarding passes. The app needs to be revised for bugs."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight left one hour after it was suppose to, there was no announcement about what was going on or why the delay. Service wasn't that good and having to pay for every little thing is a pain."
Cons: "The stewards in the plane seamed angry and not speaking Spanish you are on your own.... and 5 hrs and nothing.. no tv no snacks not even water offered.... very sad.... was on a 1 hr flight on interjet and was offer sooo many things for free... I will not be using volaris again...... Just felt like I should not be there"
Cons: "Bad customer service"
Pros: "Plane loaded quickly in part because they don’t use boarding groups and because they strictly enforced carryon bag and size limits. Those with carryons approaching size limits were checked separately while others continued to board."
Cons: "No complimentary snack and beverage service."
Pros: "The flight was 15 min earlier great"
Cons: "The food if it’s COVID restricted food sud not be serve"
Cons: "Desk should be more accessible to clients that are a bit late to their plane"

Cons: "Many things could have been better. There was no kiosk for check in, the crew was not helpful prior to checking in, multiple occurrences where a group member was stopped for no reason by airline crew member, there were at least two seats that were duplicated on the airlines part, there was a delay on the flight due to over booked seatings, seats did not recline, no phone charging services."
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"
Pros: "Flight itself."
Cons: "Boarding an off boarding"
Pros: "Flight in time"
Cons: "1. Couldn’t do web check-in 2. When picked my seat in vivaerobus website , emergency seats were not indicated, as a result, i got exactly a seat infront of the emergency seats line. Not only my seat wouldn’t lean, it was also less than 90 degrees. I was terribly uncomfortable the whole flight!!!"
Cons: "Mex AirPort ,"
Cons: "Double assigned seat, crew was poor in communication and never explained or apologized."

Cons: "Only a bit more smooth flying, but this is out of our control."

Cons: "Not good organization while boarding, too much turbulence, very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Great service, I really recommend. Un servicio muy bueno"
Pros: "The only thing that i liked was that the flight was real quick"
Cons: "That the flight and boarding was on time and if there was a delay that they communicate with the passengers not just have us up thinking not knowing what the delay is for. Also our luggages took over an hour to get the whole experience here was ridiculous. Not happy at all"
Pros: "Bien la tripulación. El avión austero"
Cons: "Las indicaciones para subir al avion"
Pros: "It was impossible to speak to anyone before the 24 hour cancellation period ends."
Cons: "Have people try to help instead just telling them to call later or call the airline"
Pros: "Seat space was so bad and nothing comfortable and the flight was delayed for more than two hours what a service experience is this? My first time flight in with this company and last"
Cons: "Service is so bad from the beginning to the end I have the worst experience ever with this company Viva Aerobus last time I flight with them"
Pros: "Everything was average. Nice new airplane though."
Cons: "They lost my bag on a single non stop flight. 60 minutes in baggage claim until someone showed up. They needed 24-72 hours to find it. No idea when they would get it to me. No compensation for the things I needed ok vacation while they look."
Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement"
Pros: "Did not let me change my ticket for a different time . Lost money missing flight"
Pros: "Cheap and on time"

Cons: "They canceled my flight"
Pros: "Very helpful staff !!"
Cons: "Airline overselling tickets didn’t get a seat for me my wife had to travel alone and offered me a flight for the next day"
Pros: "This is a cheap ticket."
Cons: "They tried to charge me for carry on luggage even though I was under weight and under size. They aggressively tried to take my carryon and told me I had to pay 41$ per bag or I could not get on plane. Only when I asked for a manager and found someone to interpret for me and show with a measuring tape and we did they allow me on... total scam - the gate attendant conned at least 15 people before us that had smaller bags that they had to pay (very aggressively in Spanish and many passengers did not speak Spanish so gave in and payed just to get on flight). Once on the flight- you can adjust your seat which for me wasn’t a big deal at 5’1” but any taller would be an issue. You pay for even water on this flight."
Cons: "Delays are understandable but the messaging was the problem, staff created chaos by handing out limited incorrect information. This Encouraged passengers to overcrowd the information booths. Plus a two hour wait on the tarmac,horrible!!"
Pros: "45 minutes after the original departure time, without any information about."
Cons: "Delayed flight both there and back. Personal at the desk VERY RUDE! Their luggage policy is f***ing ridiculous! They even weight your purse! And both carryon and luggage have to weight 10 kg - AND IF YPU GET ANYTHING ELSE AT THE DUTY FREE THEEY REWEIGHT YOUR BAGS AND MAKE YOUPAY IF IT GOES OVER!!! They always change the boarding gate and don’t have anyone telling you to go to the new gate! You have to walk and look out to the screens for the stupid sign!"
Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "Crowded, disorganized boarding process. The worst I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Check-in took 75 minutes because they kept moving the late people up to the front of the line. Yet other lines moved quickly. Not well organized"
Cons: "This was one of the worst overall flying experiences I’ve ever had. The flight was from Mexico City to Cabo, and i was supposed to take the flight with two friends. We were all later than we wanted to be due to the México City traffic. I arrived one hour before the flight and they arrived exactly 34 minutes before. I remember because we tracked it exactly on our phones as it was happening. When they got to the check in booth the attendant said they were too late to check in and they had to have gotten there 35 minutes before. I have checked the airline online policies and nowhere does it say that. It only says that they can refuse checkin after 30 minutes but I am positive they arrived before that. I will mention here that the plane was about 15 minutes late taking off. So, the airline enforced strict made up policies on its paying passengers and doesn’t uphold any sense of respect to them? The attendant also told my friends they would not get refunded and that the next flight wasn’t until the next night. We are going to Cabo for the weekend so obviously that was out of the question. So, I board the plane and realize why the attendant must have told my friends the plane was closed. There were no empty seats on the plane, which means that they must have given away seats to people on standby. I support this if its a last minute decision after the flight has closed AS IT IS ADVERTISED. Not a made up 5 minutes before. So I boarded and there was absolutely no service. None. The flight attendants came out once and made you pay for WATER. What kind of airline doesn’t at least give water??? I understand the appeal of budget airlines but honestly, this flight was over $200 which is not what I would call “budget” and the airline skimped on the most basic things— water, customer service, and any semblance of human decency. I am thoroughly disgusted with how horrible this airline has been for even a 1.5 hour flight and i plan to not only write as many horrible reviews as I can but to share this terrible experience with as many people as I can so they can avoid being victims to such inhuman treatment. Viva Aerobús should be ashamed to call themselves an airline and Kayak should be ashamed to allow them on their site."
Cons: "Horrible service"
Pros: "Don't leave me abord lost my flight and my money"
Cons: "That airline sucks"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for a long time, departure was originally scheduled for 6:30 PM but we did not even board until well past 10 PM"
