They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.

An international flight with a chicken sandwich and fruit is low quality. In comparison, Avianca provided a gourmet meal and a Salvatore Farragamo flight gift with lotions, eye covers, ear plugs, pen, and tissue.

There was not food or entertainment. It was a short fly.

Seats are awfully small/cramped and I am a small woman!

The flight attendants were happy!

Smaller plane less roomy. Snack options limited. I understand it may be due to was a short flight. Gates for connecting flight was a hike.

Flight was canceled by Delta at the last minute.

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "After boarding the door was closed and the jet way was moved back. 5 minutes later they said they were going to bring the jet way back and open door to let more people on board.

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)."

Cons: "The flight was 2 hours plus late and we couldn't get an accurate update as to when to pick up our son. We got text messages that were never updates, online your information was wrong and when we called agents had the wrong flight information. Terrible experience all around."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was superb."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Everything was great, flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."
Cons: "CVG security line isn't terrible, but there seemingly is ALWAYS a decent wait. When a flight is full, like this one, it's never very comfortable – even a short flight."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "---"
Cons: "Delayed, for close to 6 hours and missed our connection"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "Smooth, easy, still long"
Cons: "Still long"
Cons: "Seats are too close."
Pros: "Chicken kale salad was inedible. I did not know chicken had gristle!"
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."
Pros: "Short flight 35 minutes, Attendants were magnificent - friendly and focused on the customers as if they were important human beings spending hard earned cash instead of live cargo whose fares were already in the bank. This factor alone will cause me to choose Delta over others despite any small difference in price. Never waited very long in any line. Zero frustration."
Cons: "Had to pay to check a bag for the 35 min. domestic leg of my international flight which carries no baggage fee ON THE SAME AIRLINE booked at the same time. Lame."
Cons: "In a 6h flight, they only served drinks once. I saw the crew member once with a tray of glasses with water, but he ran out before getting to our seat and never came back. I was glad I hadn't finished a bottled water I had purchased earlier at the airport."
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: "Yes"
Cons: "Serve some type of beverage with out charging a lot"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Airport is a disaster. It is a single gate, bamboo-walled open air space with about half the seating necessary for a flight. Latam charges almost $2 even for a cup of “coffee” that is really just hot water, powdered Nescafé and powdered milk! It hardly seems worth the effort and really slows down service."
Cons: "Have a screen to watch movies."
Pros: "The pilots were polite and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Could provide a menu card, like every other airline. Instead of listing every single option to everyone on the plane. And maybe use bigger cups that hold more than 3-4 ounces?? Especially when the airport takes away peoples liquids (see below). Ridiculous. Not necessarily with flight, more with Lima airport “security” - they took away ALL bottled liquids more than 3 oz. AT THE GATE. Even bottled water purchased 20 feet from the gate. And they couldn’t explain why. Just got a bunch of shrugs. Why take sealed water purchased at their own airport away before an international 8+ hour flight???"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They force the passengers to tag our bagagge ourself and give wrong directions to do this. And they tried yo force you to pay to change sits."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Everithing else"
Cons: "We got off onto a shaky set of stairs that surely would have been a safety violation in the states."
Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "For the 2 hours flight, I had to endure some strong stench coming from fellow passengers. Extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "This app is fraud"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "My three LATAM flights were all on-time, well-piloted and efficiently run. They are not responsible for airport-related issues in Lima. Taking off at over 11.00 feet and landing at sea level must be like having most of the air leak out of your tires while driving, but these guys take that in stride."
Cons: "Gate assignments in Lima tend to change and be posted late, but this is not under LATAM control."
Pros: "Food great"
Cons: "Everything exelente"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Cons: "Person behind my seat was kiking! Luggage took for ever to be deliver."
Pros: "Q z bsv"
Cons: "Gate changes were not announced and the crew didn't help passengers get their luggage in place to allow for enough room for the last passengers to board. Many passengers places small items that belong below the seat in the over head. I had to ask passengers myself who's bag is this to get them to put it under the seats in front of them."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Pros: "Flying. They were able too get us replacement tickets at no charge but the flight was 2 hours later."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed with no explanation of why and then we missed our connecting flight because of it. They wouldnt let us get on the plane even though the plane was still at the terminal"
Pros: "Flight was on time crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seat pitch was very tight, more like a budget airline, but the flight was short so OK"
Cons: "Lost my bags"
Pros: "They rebooked us out of Orange County, a different airport, without extra charge."
Cons: "Seemed like they should have known the plane would have been late when they told us all good eight hours earlier, as plane was still in Lima when we arrived at LAX and hence our flight was cancelled but only after driving up to LA and waiting at check in an hour."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."
Cons: "Plane was 6.5 hours late taking off. I missed a meeting in Cusco because overall I arrived 8 hours past my scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Average airline with poor customer service. The transit was too short and lost my luggage. Customer service was very poor and recovering my bags was an epic and expensive endeviour!!"
Pros: "Staff is on top of everything on every aspect, from beginning to end. My favorite airline, far away from the rest, crew seems eager to help and make your trip the best possible experience."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Poor service. Not too friendly crew. I normally fly American but being myself Chilean, I thought I'd give Latam a chance but was disappointed. I was travelling with my daughter and 2 yr old grandaughter and felt that they didn't give us any special attention in regards to baby.I used to be a flight attendant and In my day the standards of service were SO MUCH HIGHER!! I Will not fly Latam next time."
Cons: "The people making announcements need to slow down. I understand some Spanish but hey were talking so fast it was difficult, then when they repeated in English, their pronunciation wasn't the best but again because they were speaking so fast it was difficult to understand."
Pros: "The food, crew, and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was poor. The flight was delayed and there was not explanation at the gate that there was a delay or why. I don't understand why our carry on bags needed to be searched. We were put in a line with only one person doing the bag checks while the other line had over two people checking bags."
Pros: "Solid crew, clean planes, safe pilots. Exceptional staff support at LATAM check-in at LAX."
Cons: "I arrived 3 hours early to my flight, which I had been notified that morning of a 2hr delay. Fortunately the woman who checked me in realized there was 1 seat available on the last flight that would get me to Lima in time for my connection flight (departing same time as my flight pre-delay). She personally got me to the front of the line, and ran with me just about to the gate, where I caught a shuttle to the plane. If she hadn't done so, and if I hadn't checked in so early, I would have been forced to stay in Lima 24hrs, despite buying a rightful seat and having reservations in Buenos Aires. It is appalling and unacceptable that y'all continue to overbook flights, causing incredible trouble, inconvenience and potential harm to your customers. For a service that costs so much, the only acceptable delays are weather and mechanically related. if it hadn't been for amazing staff immediately, I would've been furiously waiting in a city I didn't need or want to be in. Customer service will continue to grow your business or impede it negatively-- how y'all act is up to you. I appreciate how well I was taken care of by several kind individuals."
Pros: "The standard domestic flight, not a lot of room but not as cramped as it could have been. Speedy from the time we boarded to disembarking."
Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "EL EQUIPAJE NO LO MANDARON HASTA DESTINO FINAL Y SE PERDIO"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in LAX, and consequently I missed my connection to Cuzco. My luggage was also misplaced"
Pros: "They took every measure to make sure me and my family had the most comfortable flight possible. I will be sure to fly LatAm again. Thank you so much!"
Pros: "I prefer being given my own bottle of water and wine, the cup sizes are too small. Food is ok, not great."
Cons: "The flight from Lisa was cancelled and the 18 hour wait in Lina was horrible!!! All day at the airport!"
Pros: "No podría decir que me gustó nada"
Cons: "Mi primera experiencia en Latam no fue nada buena, mi vuelo latam2005 de lima-cusco el día 3/10/16 se retrasó por 2 horas debido a un supuesto mantenimiento de ultima imprevisto, creo que son cosas que deben detectarse antes para hacer un cambio de avión y no hacer al pasajero perder su tiempo...el 2do vuelo de cusco-lima Latam 2020 día 6-10-16 también se retrasó con 1 hora debido a que viajaban demasiadas personas y necesitaban voluntarios para viajar en el próximo vuelo. La verdad no creo volver a viajar con Latam."
Pros: "Overall the flight was excellent and the crew were very charismatic and always with a smile."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Old airplane"
Pros: "The meal offerings given my "special" menu request (vegetarian) was better than expected, portions were of a nice quantity, the food wasn't bland, and in terms of variety they offered a good food selection. The available entertainment catalog (movies, TV shows, etc) was vast, and included recently released films. I also love that LAN offers pillows, blankets (of good, warm material) and headsets. The crew was attentive and helpful. The plane plane was clean, which is expected to be but not always ends up being that way."
Cons: "The plane looked like an older model, which is not a problem itself, the problems were: my seat was missing the cup holder ring (looked like it broke) meaning no place to keep a cup to drink water throughout the flight. The remote for the "t.v."/entertainment system, that is nestled on the side of the seat, wasn't working and the touch screen glitched (it would freeze, or kick me back to the root menu while I was browsing through options) Small technical problems that given the $$ flights cost, one expects them to work properly."
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that the cabin crew worked to seat my husband and I together. There was a bit of shuffling done but they managed to do it without inconveniencing anyone. Thank you!"
Cons: "And it would have been good if more water was on offer. Service was somewhat rushed."
Cons: "I have a very bad experience. The first flight was delayed, so many people including me missed the connecting flight. They kept us till 2AM at the airport and made us take out all our luggage before taking us to a hotel. Then, there was a Flight leaving the same day at noon, but instead of acommodating us there, they made us wait till 11:59 PM for the next flight. They told us that it was a direct flight as it was initially scheduled from Lima to La Paz, but that was not true as we had to stop in Santa Cruz first. To sum up, there was a 28-hour delay in total. I was supposed to get to La Paz on Jan. 28 and ended up arriving on the 29. No explanations were given, but it is clear that they oversold as all flights were full. Avoid this airline if you can."
Pros: "Having a vegetarian option"
Cons: "No salad?! Fruit or vegetable! Something was missing."
Pros: "They did not control computer and electronic devices, so I was able to watch a movie ON MY PHONE without having to turn off at all, neither take off or landing."
Cons: "No food - just a Bon-o-Bon. No coffee. Where do you see an airline with no coffee?"
Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Easy place to get around and nice people"
Cons: "Food and leg space were terrible. Flight to CUN didn't have individual TV screens and departed late."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Limited alcohol"
Pros: "Pésimo servicio de las aeromozas, golpeaban en el pasillo con el carro porque andaban corriendo con ese carro de comida malcriadas"
Cons: "Que hubiera un mejor manejo con el equipaje, extraviaron una maleta de mi familia."
Pros: "Guaranty the flight and not tell you that the plane is full and you can flight until the next day"
Cons: "Was not allowed to board the plane, this causing me to miss my flight."
Cons: "Landing was horrible"
Cons: "I wish I didn't have an almost 6 hour layover and that there was a personalized screen for this longer flight."
Cons: "NA"
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 lost my flight, really slow service (40 minutes on the line), bad actitude, NO REFUND. This is mi first and last flight purchased by Aeromexico. I hate you Aeromexico."
Pros: "The variety of movies, songs and tv."
Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent!!!"
Pros: "Efficient boarding clean cabin"
Cons: "No food offered except chips, no entertainment on international flight"
Pros: "Non"
Cons: "Delay 5 hr made me stress, coz have conecting flight 6 hr..running in the diairport for check in LA - Korea"
Cons: "Crew and staff were lazy and hostile almost I have to say."
Pros: "The crew was very kindly all the time, the on board entertainment is modern"
Pros: "It went smooth and was very comfortable."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Guadalajara!"
Cons: "Check in process at Tijuana airport was okay, what really made the trip unpleasant was the boarding process. Three Aeromexico departures within minutes, from a small enclosed area. No seating available, no PA for announcements, basically controlled chaos. granted the airport is going through renovations, but that is still no excuse for the poor execution of the boarding process."
Pros: "Spacious cabin layout with great food and entertainment options."
Cons: "Zero complaints. It was a great flight"
Pros: "Nice fight. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Llegue temprano al mostrador me paso a Migracion sabiendo que mi pasaporte estaba roto y no pude viajar perdiendo mi vuelo si el me uniese dicho eso yo uniese tenido tiempo de ir a sacar pasaporte nuevo y poder viajar y me cobran otra maleta y no me regreso el dinero sabiendo que no viaje"
Pros: "Crew is always great"
Cons: "Modern entertainment with personal screens."
Pros: "It was quick and easy to get through everything"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "The crew were great always ver polite and helpful having tv on flight makes people more relax I know I was"
Cons: "Everything was good my complain is about the rude passengers in the plane just cause u pay for a plane ticket it don’t mean it gives them a right to be rude with the crew"
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "Cheese tamale"
Cons: "My hiking shoes were stolen along with a wind breaker"
Pros: "Foods and refreshers were good"
Cons: "The wait time when boarding"
Pros: "Lots of really good movie choices"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "I did not receive acknowledgment that I had cancelled the flight... and I still received 'updates' to give uncertainty to the status."
Cons: "Aeromexico is the worst airline I have ever flown including many throughout Latin America, Africa and other developing regions of the world. Our first flight was delayed an hour not because of weather or maintenance, etc. Just because “our planes always late” as the person at the gate put it. Because of he delay, we missed our connection and we have been delayed 24 hours. Horrible."
Pros: "We got an upgrade to 1st class. However because it’s an older plane, 1st class was just recliner seats. This was an overnight flight, so anything helped. It would have been nicer to have seats lay further back in 1st class. We did not have food since we slept the whole way."
Cons: "the attention during the delay was terrible. No A/C, and no possibilities of returning tio the terminal while they worked on fixing the plane... and the crew diidn't allow us to use our phones, or offered water"
Pros: "Good service and good price"
Pros: "Lounge"
Cons: "Seats and technology on the planes. Not the most modern fleet in mexico"
Pros: "The comfort of the business class, the seats are wide and comfortable"
Cons: "The snacks are only peanuts and juice... I would like to have something more than peanuts."
Pros: "You were served a meal"
Cons: "The seats are literally on top of one another, you couldn't watch the movie in English only Spanish. We waited 30 min for a bus to get us from the plane to go to customs"
Pros: "Please see the above note"
Cons: "Please see the above note"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The unwillingness of the manager to help out a customer in distress."
Cons: "No IFE; seats rather tight. The sandwich with a slice of cheese and unknown deli meat was almost inedible - why don't they just allow fliers to pay for their own food?"
Pros: "Great customer service and great food."
Cons: "Every thing was great."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew was helpful with the limited amount of Spanish I speak."
Cons: "nothing was bad"
Pros: "The price was the best part"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "There's nothing i didn't like"
Cons: "We were the last ones to board there was no place to put our personal items also we were missing items from our suitcases they stole a small camera and jewelry we bought for gifs I will never flight with this Air line again they ransacked our suitcases I'm very disappointed"
Pros: "Didnt let me go to the VIP lounge."
Pros: "The Aeromexico staff is polite and respectful. There were movies available on the flight."
Cons: "At first we were told we needed to pay an additional fee for departure tax. I researched this issue ahead of time and knew the departure tax is now included in the ticket price--it has been that way for a couple years. We had to explain that to the Aeromexico agent. But to her credit, she looked into it and eventually agreed we did not have to pay the extra fee. It cost $65 for an extra bag. Seems steep but whatever, we paid it. The gate changed but no one told the ticket counter. When we arrived at the gate, dozens of other passengers were there but the electronic board stated the flight was at a different gate. Aeromexico staff needed to look into it to discover the gate had been moved. Not impressed with their internal communications. The flight departed about 40 minutes late. Not bad. The food was awful. Could only eat the cookie."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight boarded 40 min late with zero announcements made at the gate. Arrived late to Mexico City for connecting flight. Called Aeromexico while waiting in line to clear customs to tell them a group of 11 would be arriving late to the gate. They let the plane leave early and tried to charge a change fee."
Pros: "Loved the movie selections."
Cons: "When we deplaned from QRO, the flight, 644 was not listed on the board. This caused a few moments of confusion since the connection was in 45 minutes."
Pros: "Very polite crew"
Cons: "The seats are too close to each other I'm 6.1 and it was hell for 2 hrs"

In my opinion everything.is good, friendly staff

Flight was OK but delayed. Arriving in Guadalajara was chaotic and no directions to the appropriate band for luggage delivery was announced. Horrible experience.

Flight was delayed over 2 hours. Not the first time this happened with Volaris.

No food o drinks

They charge you ridiculous amounts for a carry on and a checked bag (almost the same price as the flight itself). Volaris has got to be the most uncomfortable airline I've ever been on. There is barely any leg room, the seats don't recline even though there is a button, and there is no way to get any work done, as not even a laptop fits on the tray-table.

Slow and cumbersome boarding. Failed to properly organize the waiting line

Cons: "They oversold the flight and many People had to stay for 2 more days I was lucky to get a seat they sold my ticket to someone else it was like a nightmare"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly But people at checking in are really mean. Nasty people you should get another people with better trainings, etc. They were asking personal questions and abusing just because of their power. Not good at all, one on the worst experience"
Cons: "Personal at checking in. They have the worst attitude ever"
Pros: "Como la gente me trató"
Cons: "Nada"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "They charge for absolutely everything and flights are not even that cheap. Seats ate very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I very much dislike the professionalism this company provides to the consumer, never never will I return to use their service"
Cons: "The airport reps were not at all helpful and my flight was changed to noon vs. The one I purchased."
Pros: "Quick boarding and ease with carry-on"
Cons: "We didn't get the safety announcement in full. The friendliness of the staff -"
Pros: "Las aeromozas muy secas y déspotas. Los asientos duros a pesar q viaje en salida de emergencia"
Cons: "La distancia entre asientos es RIDICULAMENTE justa, y no se diga cuando el pasajero delante se reclina, no sean pichicatos con el espacio...."
Cons: "Boarding timeliness and process was bad."
Cons: "Giving food to passengers as it used to be."
Cons: "If they had a vegetarian food option to purchase, and not only different kinds of meat."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Volaris's system apparently was malfunctioning that prevented anyone from checking in online or through any app which caused stress the day before travel. Even worse, they couldnt even check in at the gate and had to fill out forms by hand, which caused a 2 hours delay!"
Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."
Cons: "I had to pay for check in at counter because I could do it online. Their system didn’t work well. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Flight delay horrible ... almost missed my connecting flight ."
Cons: "Better connecting flights"
Cons: "Everything went well."
Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster. It took me more than 90 minutes to check my bag. I arrived 2.5 hours before my flight and almost did not make it in time to board, which seems unacceptable."
Cons: "Being timely"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight so I would have appreciated if the crew members refrain from super loud conversations right next to my seat (I was obviously trying to sleep as everyone else on the flight."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "a lot"
Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"
Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"
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: "The flight was swift without a hiccup, boarding was also done in a quick manner. Volaris is always great in service even at the counter."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know the baggage allowance and that we had to check in first via kiosk before lining up to drop off our luggage."
Pros: "Very friendly crew- this airline is really making attempts for on time boarding on time landing and in increasing their customer service"
Cons: "For this type of airline-nothing"
Pros: "todo"
Cons: "vender mas cervesa"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The price is good. The punctuality is good"
Cons: "The luggage fee is too high"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Servicio"
Cons: "Left 22 minutes late, there was a bomb scare, we made a emergency landing and after one hour we are still on the plane with no ens in sight."
Pros: "Very Smooth trip. Excellent service. A little late on departure."
Pros: "The crew was nice and professionnal"
Cons: "Boarding was late and messy. Seats are narrow. I guess I got what I paid for. The delayed arrival put us into JFK at nearly 3am. No public transportation available"
Cons: "Seats are large but hard Sell food. Nothing free."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No TSA Pre Dirty plane Rude staff"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
Cons: "Super mala, organización, aviones pequeños"
Cons: "Only snack options during my flight, was hoping to buy a meal."
Cons: "Kiwi lost my reservation I lost my fligh"
Cons: "They checked us in, at the 2:00am boarding time they told us there was something wrong with the plane and they had fix it. Finally, at 6:00am they canceled the flight. We won’t be booking volaris again."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Over an hour and a half late."
Cons: "Los sobrecargos, Eduardo e Itzel, no dejaron de agarrarse las manos, abrazarse durante el vuelo. La falta de profesionalismo es clara y decepcionante del grupo que esperas que este pendiente que todo vaya en orden. No es posible tomar a unos jóvenes en serio cuando te dan instrucciones si se comportan así. Además, Eduardo salió a cabina, cepillándose los dientes, y poniéndose spray en el cabello (cuando los aerosoles claramente están prohibidos."
Pros: "La posibilidad de viajar a Chicag sin escalas"
Cons: "La línea Volaris o por lo menos el avión en el que viajamos es muy viejo. Y el mantenimiento deficiente."
