Cons: "The airport reps were not at all helpful and my flight was changed to noon vs. The one I purchased."
Cons: "There were four gate changes. My husband was in a wheelchair and we were running back-and-forth trying to keep up with the changes. They don’t even give you water on the flight.

Cons: "This airline needs to be shut down please, if you’re over 5’4 it’s not for you. Seats are hard and uncomfortable, they are never on time with anything.

Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
Pros: "The price for flight"
Cons: "Once your there you ticket doesn’t say if your luggage was included, so I had to pay upfront there and on the way back which costed more for luggage. And they also charge extra because I didn’t have a boarding pass . Only the info that was sent to me on the phone. I wasn’t able to download any boarding pass through the website. Wasent to happy with that part. The flight was ok it was fast, but very small seating leg room"

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: "Only snack options during my flight, was hoping to buy a meal."
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?"
Pros: "All thank you for your support. ☺"
Cons: "All attention to clients. Thank you"
Pros: "Quick and relatively cheap."
Cons: "It was too cold."
Pros: "Primera y ultima vez que volamos con Volaris. Espantosos asientos tan cerca de cada uno. Parece qur estan transportando animales."
Pros: "Ticket agents we're respectful"
Cons: "Never received email boarding pass. No kiosks. Charged for boarding pass even though they could see my reservation/confirmation# Website States checked bags15kgs/carry on 7kgs. At check-in stated only 10 klgs total so we had to pay again due to overage. Only water free on flight. I fly every week for work."
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."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"

Cons: "3 hour delay, come on... tight fit. Everything else made it uncomfortable but it was a 98$flight so what are ya gonna do?"
Pros: "The food, sunsets, beaches were amazing."
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."
Pros: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Not friendly"
Cons: "They never told us the flight would be delayed. I only found out by chance! Poor communication between airline and airport."
