Cons: "Older plane so the entertainment system was dated and the touch screen didn’t work for me in certain areas, but otherwise it was a great flight. Efficient customs in Minneapolis as well!"

Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "Seat was old and killed my back. Paid for a comfort plus seat, but from what I could tell it was no different that economy. Still had to gate check my single carry on, no entertainment system, no in flight texting. I felt ripped off"

Pros: "Crew was great as usual these days with delta. Boarding was easy and efficient. Madrid staff booked us on a later flight in Atlanta as a precaution and it turned out we needed it. Really helpful!"

Pros: "The cAbin attendant was really good"

Cons: "Changed Gates and airplanes after about a 4-hour delay Toward end of flight, the main cabin FA announced she wouldn’t be accepting half-empty water bottles as trash because Flint MI doesn’t have clean water. After an inconvenience-filled day, I thought this was pretty poor service and out of line"

Pros: "Crew gave specific instructions on boarding as to wear to place bags (overhead vs under seat) so even though we boarded toward the end, there was still a place for my bag. I enjoyed the choice of snacks."

Pros: "Delta crew & flight were excellent no complaints!"
Cons: "We were stopped by the Delta crew checking tickets as we got on to the flight. They let a party of 7 with a small child cut us in line. They even allowed another traveler to board with them. We were a party of 8 w/ 2 people in wheelchairs. They would not allow us all on & said only one could accompany them both. They were also very rude and unorganized."

Cons: "At least one hour late"

Pros: "Having three seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flight, b.s. about why we were late, kept changing the reasonfor being late, unfriendly service"

Pros: "The crew at the airport was very courteous and helpful."
Cons: "No food; not even offered water; I asked a Delta employee about our seats and she was very unprofessional (mind you I'm traveling with kids and my boarding pass said that seats were to be assigned at the gate)."

Pros: "Good customer service"

Pros: "Check-in agent was very pleasant even through having to deal with a number of cancelled flights."

Earlier notification may have allowed me to remain in Atlanta a night or two longer with my family as opposed to having had to spend many additional hours sitting uncomfortably in an airport."

Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "No headphones available for flight"

Pros: "Friendly staff and onetime aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in perticular"

Cons: "Boarding process was horrible, it was first class, priority, zone 1 and then all other zone. There was no order. Flight was delayed. Had a 3 hour delay on the tarmac!"

Pros: "Quick trip and relaxing --- no high way traffic issues, accidents or construction hold ups."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I did not like."

Pros: "Flight and service were fine. Because there was a long delay, the ticket agents supplied free sandwiches, drinks, salads, and coloring books and tried to engage the waiting passengers with games. I won a $50 Delta gift certificate! The captain had good communication with the passengers to keep us informed."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 1/2 hours because no crew was available."

Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers. I issue is that at no time did he discuss this option with us. He was instituting the move when the male passenger stated he did not want to move"

Pros: "Left reasonably on time, arrived a bit early, able to find overhead storage for my roll-on, even boarding in Zone 3"
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight."

Cons: "Extreme delays"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for 13 hours, the airline (delta) made no effort whatsoever to remedy the adverse effects of this delay. They were even charging for snacks on the flight. A horrific experience throughout."

Pros: "Seats were nice"
Cons: "Airplane interior needs updating, old seats."

Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and polite. They served drinks and snacks in a timely manner while on the flight."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave early, the plane arrived, but they couldn't turn the plane around fast enough. We left the gat late, then pilot said we would still be arriving half an hour early. We arrived about 45 minutes late, and that was a problem because our connecting flight was due to depart now in 15 minutes. Lightning forced the airport to shutdown, which was great, we had a chance to catch our flight, but we were stuck in the airplane, and we couldn't get to our gate until the all-clear. I know this is not Delta's fault, but they did arrive quite late on a flight that, according to them, would be early. They also never communicated to the other flight that there were several passengers catching that connection. So by the time we had ran to catch our connection they had closed the ramp. Lightning hit again, and they shutdown the airport once again, so the airplane was still at the gate for about an hour, and they did not allow the 20+ passengers to board that plane, which was right there. So frustrating. The only thing that saved it was that our new flight was the new airbus, and although it left an hour and a half later, the comfort level was phenomenal."

Pros: "Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on."

Pros: "Once we got flying, everything was fine."
Cons: "Gate changes had passengers walking from one end of Terminal 3 at O'Hare to the other twice."

Cons: "old plane with worn out seats."

Pros: "Gate staff had a nice sense of humor and did keep us reasonably informed about the delayed departure."
Cons: "The headroom and seating space on this plane were tight and inadequate. Paid extra for 'preferred seating' but certainly couldn't tell that I got anything for the money. Had to duck to get in and out of seat. Was in a 2-seat row with a large, but not oversize young man and our shoulders were glued together the entire trip. Was served warm tomato juice with no ice, although ice bucket was full. last flight of evening so perhaps attendants were tired, but nonetheless...."

Pros: "Cheapest flight to Cyprus"
Cons: "Dirty, cramped, and they neglected to send my luggage on from Amman."

Pros: "Everything was great. Easy boarding great comfortable seating and friendly efficient stewardship"

Cons: "Boarding was a little chaotic. Could have been more organized."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"

Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"

Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."

Pros: "Staff extremely friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Old plane with no individual tv screens!!! Didn't know these planes still existed!"

Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."

Cons: "Old plane with no plug-ins and outdated media."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."

Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."

Pros: "Free alcohol and good passenger friends and friendly service."
Cons: "No outlets for phones"

Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."

Pros: "Not enough space. Felt too tight. Not comfortable at all."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"

Pros: "All the movies"
Cons: "Legroom"

Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."

Cons: "The flight left almost 6 hours late, and the delay was not directly due to weather. Another flight from and to the same airports left as scheduled 3 hours before this one finally left."

Pros: "The crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful. They made the negatives about the flight much more bearably be their excellence service whether during boarding, in flight, or after landing."
Cons: "I booked the flight originally through british airways and expected your standard, modern plane for cross atlantic travel. Boarding to find myself on a 767 designed (and likely built) in the 80s was rather disappointing."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "Crew was excellent but it was literally the most uncomfortable plane ride I have ever been. There was even an empty seat in the middle and I couldn't sleep at all. The seats were super shOrr and the headrests sucked"

Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."

Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."

Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"

Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Cons: "Due to two flight delays, I traveled an additional 24 hours, on top of my 20 hour original flight. Albuquerque Airline staff were rude, dismissive, incompetent, and each individual I spoke with gave me wildly differing information. The two delays (leading to approximately 48 hours of travel) would have been stressful enough, but the callous, ignorant and unprofessional attitudes of American Airlines staff (and staff in general at Chicago O'Hare Airport) really disappointed me. This was even more striking compared with the professional service I received from British Airways (from whom I purchased the tickets). I was ashamed that my country could lag so far behind in terms of basic customer service and problem solving."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."

Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"

Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Food was horribe and no dedicated tv per seat"

Cons: "Bad turbulence throughout the entire flight. Hot temperature during majority of flight."

Pros: "The actual flight was comfortable and the crew was good."
Cons: "Flight time was pushed back a few weeks ago. Slow boarding process so we landed about 30 min late."

Pros: "Nothing. It is a cheap airline and it shows. It is the worst airline I have ever flown."
Cons: "The crew was okay but it must be depressing to work for a company where you cannot get a glass of water without paying for it. I had never flown allegiant and was not prepared for paying $50 for my carry on bag."

Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Everything was fine. Thanks!!"

Pros: "Great fares even for last minute booking."
Cons: "Services and comfort as expected for the price."

Pros: "That we made it once we were in the air"
Cons: "The 3 hour delay that should have been announced but we had to get alerts on line not from the airline but Kayak"

Cons: "The ground crew got something stuck in the snow and we can't get off the plane because of that."

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly and smooth flight."
Cons: "Plane was noticeably old and dirty"

Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable"

Cons: "Was assigned a middle seat. I am a small woman and had absolutely no room."

Pros: "Flight went smooth"
Cons: "I checked into my flight with luggage to check in. The lady behind the counter said I could not check my luggage that the only way for it to get on the plane was to take it through the TSA checkpoint. They confiscated everything in my bag that was over 3oz which was quite a bit of stuff hence the reason why I was trying to check it in. I will not be flying Allegiant air again."

Pros: "No complications and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The people that stand up when the plane stops even though they are going to have to wait till the door opens and everyone in front of them has to get off before they do."

Cons: "Bad service. Long waits. No directions at airport from the airline and counter service slow"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "We sat for five hours waiting for a thunderstorm to end on a hot plane with no drinks."

Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "I am handicapped and was given the best possible service"

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "Didn't like the fact that they canceled the entire flight on the day of the flight so I had to pay for a last minute ticket which was much more expensive!"

Pros: "I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"
Cons: "Min. 40lbs when others are at 50lbs ..... even 2 free suitcases. I understand the need to make a profit but comfort is probably the most important aspect of any flight......"

Cons: "Little bit bumpy ride in some spots"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"

Pros: "Bring your own snacks & entertainment you will enjoy your flight. Make sure you eat before your flight. Download the Allegiant Air app to your cell phone you will have a Mobile Boarding pass no need to print use your phone."

Pros: "It's a cheap direct flight. Seats don't recline, so if you're tall, you won't have anyone leaning into your knees."
Cons: "The seats are really packed in, and people kept slamming into my elbow as they walked down the aisle. De-planing was a bit chaotic, I don't think many of these people fly regularly, and were having some serious heebie-jeebies at their bags being in an overhead compartment not immediately above their head. So before anyone was mobile or doors were open, there were large pieces of luggage being passed around through really crowded spaces. Chill, people. The baggage carousel at the new terminal was poorly designed, shutting down when people went to pick up their bags. It took awhile to get our bags, and we were scolded by the staff for tripping some sensor. I don't know what universe y'all live in, but in this one, you have to move close to the carousel to lift your bag. So the sensor tripped like three times and people were unhappy."

Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"

Pros: "Excellent direct flight at good price"
Cons: "Flight 339 not listed on TV monitors at Boise airport"

Cons: "The LA to Eugene leg was delayed in departing, but this was an improvement on the cancelled flight from Eugene to LA. Arrived at the airport 2 hours early per their instructions to find the flight was delayed. Thirty minutes later they cancelled the flight and then provided no information concerning the new flight the following day."

Cons: "I moved my seat when I checked in to sit with a friend and paid about ten bucks for a different seat. I didn't think much of it until I got to my new seat and realized I had paid to sit in a seat that was basically a bench that didn't recline and was right in front of the bathroom so it rattled every time someone flushed. Classy."

Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "flight was delayed 4 hrs"

Pros: "Having all the rodeo people going to the rodeo to Las Vegas"
Cons: "noise"

Pros: "No issues. Responsive flight attendants, on time"
Cons: "$5 to print my boarding pass at airport. and using online tools to print was not intuitive Seats that don't recline."

Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Cons: "Five star trip"

Cons: "Staff not friendly, no food"

Pros: "Boarding was great as usual. Flight attendants were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "There was an hour delay waiting to be de-iced when boarding happened on time. Then, because we pulled away to be de-iced, the departure time didn't show an hour late so I couldn't tell my ride what time I'd be arriving since it wasn't updated until we were in flight."

Pros: "getting bumped up to economy plus and being in an exit row."

Cons: "Poor communication about delays, delayed for over an hour with no where to find once on the plane, nobody offered any of the passengers anything to drink. Overall my worst flying experience with United ever."

Pros: "My bag actually made it to my destination before I did. I also managed to modify my flight on the United app to a better one than the customer service provided."
Cons: "no accommodation or food vouchers offered. If I didn't have a smart phone to shop around, I would have been subject to price gouging of local hotels. I was quoted $399/night at one of the generic hotels advertised at the airport kiosk."

Pros: "It seemed they had just installed new carpet and the seats looked like new. The plane was nice."
Cons: "We were 2 and a half hours late to Omaha. There were thirty planes ahead of us to take off in Chicago. Very long wait inside of the plane."

Pros: "CHECKIN Is long and awful."
Cons: "Staff rude"

Cons: "Food was airline style and could have used some fresh fruits and bakery goods. But overall it was very passable."

Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."

Cons: "No help, and after hold of 45 min, representative hang up on me. I lost a ticket because of very bad customer service!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays including on plane then everyone was kicked off. We waited more and they cancelled the whole flight and everyone had to scramble to get on anything available. I lost 28 hours of my vacation. They put us in a scary hotel in Chicago. I received a $200 voucher for further flights that doesn't even cover the cost of my unrefundable expenses such as car, hotel and tickets that were lost on my vacation."

Pros: "There was a good entertainment system with a lot of new options."
Cons: "My itinerary said I fly on Brussels Airlines on a specific flight number. I went to the international terminal to discover it is not there. I then asked multiple aiport staff members if they heard of Brussels Airlines and they said they did not. One person said it may be terminal 1, so I went there based on very little information and with hopes it would be there. I got to terminal 1 to discover there is no Brussels Airlines. I walked to Lufthansa because my return flight is through them, but it was not there either. At this point I have 45 min to make it through security and board, and no one can tell me where Brussels Airlines is. The good news is the flight was delayed, and I got an email from United Airlines with the flight status. This is the first time I was contacted by United and there was a completly different flight number than the itinerary. United should be more clear on the airline and terminal information for international flights!"

Pros: "was upgraded"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "small video monitor"

Cons: "United and AL never helped rebook my flight from Chicago to Omaha. Spent too much time and money to get back home."

Pros: "Didn't think my seat was too comfortable. Had to sit on my neck pillow. But flight was on time. Crew friendly."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Horrible plane, old and not comfortable at all. Little entertainment to choose from and the technology on the plane was horrible. No healthy food options, won't fly United internationally again"

Pros: "That transportation was available in Chicago."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"

Pros: "Lufthansa fueron súper amables. Todo bien agradable. Buena comida."

Pros: "I had excellent service, the employees were extremely nice and helpful. I use a wheelchair due to disability, so it's important to me to have someone take me from entrance to the gate and help getting on board. From the woman who helped me with getting me to the gate, the gate agent and flight attendants, I was very impressed with UA service today."

Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "All services where very good from check in to arrival In L.A."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like."

Pros: "The older planes of United Airlines could use some remodeling. The entertainment system with controls in the middle of the arm rest where the elbow rests is such a bad idea, didn't even bother with this crappy unintuitive system. It was annoying and flashy with bright advertisements or something popping up on a night time flight just sooooooo annoying, turning it off was not intuitive and had to ask the flight attendants how to turn it off during their very busy work of handing out packages with five miniature pretzels and drinks to the passengers, was happy to get a whole cab of juice to myself though."

Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Food."

Cons: "Similarly, poor cabin staffing"

Cons: "Delayed for a latch for 10min then 10 more then 30 in reality was around 1:30 plus when we finally bored the plane we got delayed again because they had to spray the aircraft because of the snow supposedly 5 minutes it took 25 My overall opinion about united airlines is: Never again Bad customer service"

Pros: "Everything was good!"

Cons: "My luggage was lost"

Pros: "We had no delays this time and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "While we arrived on time, we all waited 40 minutes to get our checked luggage at the end of the flight. United is not my first choice in airlines: they give the impression that they're giving the bare minimum and not really trying to make a good experience for the customer."

Cons: "The boarding gate changed but the gate information did not. I thought I would save money and time flying United at Ohare. That's a mistake I will never make again."

Pros: "Seats were spacious, we were on time."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hour and then canceled. 1.5 hour flight between Chicago & Omaha. Weather was gorgeous in both places. Will ever fly united again for this."

Pros: "departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "cost was high person next to me on the way there was rather large and made my trip uncomfortable - not trying to be mean just being honest"

Pros: "Crew was nice but seemed tired or flustered. I could stow my backpack in overhead because it was a backpack, a true carry-on piece. Flight was short."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Boarding is always a pain. Airline calls boarding, everyone queues up and then it takes forever. Also they take to long boarding business class etc then many times they call a group # but allow passengers from other groups to board, not including people with disabilities, older passengers who need assistance."

Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Cons: "The screaming kid kicking the back of my seat the whole flight."

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"

Cons: "Delayed almost an hour."

Pros: "I liked: Fellow passengers were quiet and sane. Professional and friendly crew who didn't spill drinks or crash the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like: The fact that my final destination was Omaha. Thank God it's only temporary."

Pros: "But I know how flying United used to be in the past, and it'seems just not the same big standard of service, as the flight attendants aren't as gracious and selfless as they once were. I fly Delta more often because they've retained a higher standard of service, i.e. graciousness toward the passengers, perhaps because they're based in the South where that still counts. I was a tour manager & took 32,000 customer service calls for Williams Sonoma so I know that a cheerful, efficient attitude is a choice, and not a hard thing to accomplish with good psychology incorporated into a lot of training programs today."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight delay times"

Cons: "They knew we were on our way to the connection. They told us to run, we did. We were not aloud on the plane. Caused 10 hours of flight delays and cancelled flights because they could not wait 2 minutes.... Horrible experience."

Cons: "Volaris has no social distancing in flight"

Pros: "I like everything about it"
Cons: "Note"

Pros: "Airline reps were always available"
Cons: "They flew me from Veracruz to Guadalajara 3 hours later than scheduled. Instead of making an effort for several passangers to catch the flight from Guadalajara to Fresno (also ran by Volaris) they would not let us board the Fresno flight; even though the gate was still open and the last passengers were boarding. Instead, Volaris sent me to Los Angeles (they gave me the option of flying to Fresno, but 5 days later. I don't live in Guadalajara and that was not my final destination). In Los Angeles, I had to take a cab from the LAX to the Bus Station, take the bus to Fresno (spend all night on the bus) and take a cab to the Fresno airport to pick up my automobile. Thank you Volaris . . . great job!"

Pros: "Todo esta bien"

Cons: "no cold air on the flight, it was so hot on the plane, it was delayed"

Cons: "Flight was over sold and lost my seat"

Pros: "Crew was wood"

Pros: "Great crew- fast boarding"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"

Cons: "I was flying with my husband and 3 you. Children and couldn’t sit together. I was not told the high luggage charges and that I could register before for a cheaper rate. The lines to check in were over 1 hour and 20 minutes wait. The flight attendants do not speak English so could not communicate or help me at all."

Pros: "Literally nothing. The worst airline I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized, no consideration for the elderly or infants. ALWAYS LATE! We had to be bussed to our plane and they kept up on the buss for 20 mins with no air It was so bad that one woman fainted on the bus!! Would never recommend this airline and I won’t be flying with them again."

Cons: "Not pay to much for my luggage"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and on time."
Cons: "Seats are a little hard no cushion"

Pros: "Departed on time. Non-stop to PDX was appreciated"
Cons: "Packed in like cattle, seats were not comfortable, no WiFi"

Cons: "El equipaje"

Cons: "Everything went well."

Pros: "The arriving time was the only good thing"
Cons: "Better food option, the seats are really small, checking documentation and boarding pass several times is ridiculous, charging 10.00 dollars for boarding pass and having to pay for a seat is a slap in the face"

Pros: "The crew was ok no contact no interest on mi is ok"
Cons: "The checking line ,soo bad , need much improvement!"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew friendly."
Cons: "The new seat design slim seats are so uncomfortable. They are really bad! To Volaris could @ least offer coffee, tea and water Complimentary."

Pros: "I was able to sleep."
Cons: "They weighed my 2 carry on together, incliding my food for the trip, and they charged me overweight. Which they did not do on the way to Mexico. The trip was not cheap to begin with."

Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable- no padding!!!"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "More options to fly out of Chihuahua because Volaris is horrible."

Cons: "More organization toward boarding"

Pros: "The crew was SUPER nice and waited for me even though I was late and helped me get through security check and everything. Super, Amazing crew"

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

Pros: "Flight value."
Cons: "The clerk at the ticket counter wanted the passenger to pay for the flight after it was already paid for. They kept telling her it wasn't paid for, even though the funds had been already in pending status. It took a different clerk to realize the mistake. Something tells me wanted to scam her."

Pros: "On time, clean and fairly new aircraft"
Cons: "Entertainment, food choices on board, boarding staff"

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."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "."
Cons: "I lost my connection because my first flight was delayed. It would be amazing if Kiwi.com would refund my unused flight Cancun-Chicago. I paid for a checked bag with Frontier, they didn't let me in the gate because I arrived 10 minutes later and I didn't get my money back for my luggage."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding pass options and instructions confusing, I finally decided to get the boarding pass at Volaris airport counter instead.... I was charged another fee for the process."

Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "They force to choose seats (with extra charge), they charge for kids, for stroller, for baby package, for check-in in gate, for carry-on, for lougage, don't breathe too much air they might charge you extra."

Cons: "Checking bag process. Flight crew was rude and short."

Cons: "Excelente"

Pros: "Both ways the trip was good. Fast service on Bajío Airport and back to Tijuana. Wait time was as expected on normal basis but fast service on checking in and out."
Cons: "Like every airport they over charge on snacks and food"

Pros: "that i had a entire row for myself"
Cons: "they dont add the global entry number on your ticket like other airlines, therefore you cant get TSA pre check. The flight was delayed around 40 mins. When we got there, the bags took 30 mins to come out. There was a huge fight in the baggage claim from the flight before from NY. They wouldnt get their baggage and we were stalled."

Cons: "I booked my tickets way in advance to avoid any problems. I drove 4+ hours to the airport and when I check in my tickets are not in the system. How can that be? No explanation or reason and also no apologies a or any attempt to help me get to my destination simply a “ your money will be refunded within 5-7 business days”. I had to drive back home 4+ hours missed the graduation that Saturday morning that I had committed to attend that was the purpose of my early booking of the flight, I am still very disappointed and upset with this experience."

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???"
