Pros: "Worst flying experience ever"
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: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."
Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"
Pros: "By bag was broken when I got to my final destination. It looked like they played football with it. I'm filing a claim with United Airlines"
Pros: "Please address the lax enforcement of one carry-on and one under-the-seat bag/passenger."
Cons: "Overhead compartments were full by the time I boarded so my bag was taken and tagged, as was several other passengers. I noticed upon arrival in Hartford that several passengers had 2 bags in the overhead compartment and their coats as well. If you have a policy of one carry-on and one under-the-seat/passenger, why isn't this enforced? It is not fair to the Group 4 and 5 passengers that there is no room in the overhead compartments and they are forced to relinquish their bags. Furthermore, this results in them having to go to the baggage claim area and wait for their carry-on. This added a half hour to my time and my ride had to circle the airport waiting for me to come out."
Pros: "Overall I arrived at my final destination in one piece. I'm satisfied :)"
Cons: "The airline checkin is terrible and time consuming!"
Cons: "Never made it because of stupid United"
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."
Cons: "Check-in process and seats comfort"
Pros: "Decent flight once we took off."
Cons: "If The flight didn’t depart an hour late."
Pros: "The friendly of the staff and that the crew was strict to put order in the unloading"
Cons: "the food"

Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late"
Cons: "Seat confort, space"
Cons: "Communication! Flight was delays over 5 hours. The flight changed from delayed to on time twice throughout the day."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Airplane was clean, crew was attentive and made for a peaceful ride."
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."
Cons: "Leaving on time would have been better"
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"
Cons: "I was early to aborde and I wasn’t allow to check in due to apprently being late"
Pros: "I liked that they got me to my destination alive."
Cons: "The seats, being on time, docking at the right terminal so we didn’t have to bus to another terminal to go through customs, the food, the check in process... everything was sub par. For a thousand dollar ticket, I’ll never fly Volaris or Viva Aerobús again."
Cons: "Food and entertainment and leg space."
Cons: "Mex AirPort ,"
Cons: "We ran 5 minutes late and were not allowed to board our flight because there was NO ONE at the ticket counter to check us in... And just fly is saying that we cannot use our return flight tickets, so we have wasted almost $1000.00 Unbelievably poor service at the point!"

Pros: "The plane was newer and clean"
Cons: "It was warm on the fight, it would had been better if the air conditioning was turned on the entire duration of the flight."

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: "Very friendly"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Flight got delayed by 1.5 Hrs I missed by further connection."
Cons: "The crew to check in at the airport were not helpful at all. They charge me and my family to print our tickets for us. That’s ridiculous, and an extra $50 per bag. I will never fly with volaris again."
Pros: "Nothing especially not arriving late and getting charged extra from Our driver for waiting for us even longer !"
Cons: "Horrible service, rude , dirty , too crowded, over priced ! I was charged for my luggage when I was told it was already included. And apparently they were over widget but the website said I was okay. I even called and tripped check since this was our first time flying with them. They told us to get there at least 3 hour before our flight and they didn’t start checking us in until 3:50 ! I felt rushed after because we didn’t have time to grab a coffee or eat. The workers are rude and disrespectful not helpful at all !"

Cons: "We were delayed and there was no apology given. We missed our next flight because of the delay. Bummer."
Pros: "Nothing was nice. Delayed flight for 3 hours and never told us what was wrong or why was it delayed. They first said it was about 30-45 minutes late, then an hour, later, another hour and so on. They didn’t offer anything on board, not even a cup of water. I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"
Cons: "NOTHING! I rather pay $100 more in an airline that has great CUSTOMER SERVICE and that in addition for not giving me a straight answer about how delayed is my damn flight AND taking one fu****ng hour to put the luggage in the carousel for the passengers! I hope they go out of business!!!!!! I know they lost mine and my whole family!"
Pros: "Horrible service. Never again fly with them. Sold our seats while we were checking in three hours before our flight time. Then they checked in our under bags. At the end they sold me another ticket from someone else who didn't make it in time but the others traveling with me had to stay behind for 8 hours later for the next available flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Due to heavy traffic we arrived 35 minutes prior to our departure and were not allowed to board the flight. The website clearly states that they reserve that right within 30 minutes. Their website also did not allow us to check-in online which would have also saved time. They simply told us no and said it was a lost ticket. When I questioned a credit, refund or an additional flight they said no and offered no assistance. Finally, they called security when I asked to speak to someone else."
