Plane was delay for over 5 hours

Read more about VivaAerobus

Plane was delay for over 5 hours

Freaking hell, 90 minutes inside the plane waiting for clearance with no air conditioning. Beside the 2 hrs delay

3 hr delay

I was all very well

Don't fly them. Stick with an Airline from America they can help you better and you gat a way better deal. And they don't nickel and dime you for everything. And there is ppl there to help you. My 1st and last time any Mexican Airline

1 hour delay, not reported anywhere

It sucks not being able to check in online. It just makes everything faster. Their policies sucks I will never consider again finding my flights on Kayac

Uncomfortable generally. No leg space unless you pay for front seats and they usually get delayed between 30 - 60 mins, sometimes more. If you can find other options at a reasonable price, don't think twice.

Too many VIPs

They made us pay $20 for each carry on bag that we take for free on every other flight. The flight was 2 hours late. There was nothing free on the flight, no water, pretzels, nothing. It was a 2 hour flight and the crew sped through the cabin serving things that nobody bought. The Airbus 320 had absolutely no screens on the back of seats, no inflight entertainment or information. Bare bones service, not pleasant.

Great flight with a great crew. So cheap and yet so wonderfully fulfilling. Wish other airlines were this comfortable and well run.

Pros: "Crew was very nice and the seats were just average."
Cons: "I paid extra fare for my whole family to gave more comfort and leeway on luggage. My grandson compact stroller was checked in as a regular bag in the return flight."
Cons: "Flights were comfortable. There were no complementary snacks or beverages. Luggage I checked in Puerto Escondido did not arrive in Cabo San Lucas when I did. There was no agent from VivaAerobus available at the airport for me to talk to. I will have to wait until tomorrow morning to begin trying to get my luggage. My Spanish is very poor, but there a lot of visitors who do not speak Spanish. The English speaking skills of VivaAerobus employees is poor."

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."
