Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though).

Cons: "That our flight was finished."
Cons: "Almost lost the conection at MEX because I was waiting for my baggage, nobody said anything until 20 minutes the bags for the flight stop coming."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket, but the airline changed Equipment to a plane without a first class cabin. I was unceremoniously bumped back to coach and placed in front of two screaming children who proceeded to yell, kick my seat and hit me in the head for the entire flight. Never fly aeromexico"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason, very irresponsible msnagement"

Pros: "Nothing Horrible trip, horrible service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5hrs Hard to get clear information about the delay and when we were actually going to leave. Horrible wifi in Mexico Airport. They had all passengers board the plane and then decided to refuel, so everyone sat in the airplane for 1 hour at the gate before leaving. We didn’t even get a drink of water on the plane. We were sitting in the last row in the back of the plane and when the attendant got to us it was time to land so she just skipped our row. I highly dis recommend Volaris."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better training with the crew"
Cons: "Very little leg room"
Pros: "The flight was mostly empty"
Cons: "The flight attendant Paola was super rude. None of them had a pen even though they know every single passenger has to complete a customs form. Also, the gentleman at the counter was rude and said several expletives when I was boarding bc he had to do a little extra work to print out a boarding pass for my infant."
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: "The passengers sitting by me were very helpful. They put my carryon on the overhead rack for departure and arrival. The handicapped attendant was excellent when I arrived in Cancun and stayed with me until my transfer was found."
Cons: "I have traveled several times annually with Volaris for at last 13 years and this is the first time the service was so bad, virtually no service was offered at any time. Everything seemed disorganized. No food was offered or even a glass of water. I am 86 years old and travel handicapped all over the world with excellent service. I was shocked that I as dumped in a seat at the Volaris gate from the wheel chair by the attendant; and, who never returned to help me board the plane. I made the mistake of tipping him well. No ramp was available and I had to beg for help with my carryon as I have to hold on with both hands to go up the stairs. Cancun’s attendant for handicapped was much better and truly helped me and stayed with me until my transfer was found. Tijuana’s airport service was horrible."

Cons: "uncomfortable seats-nopadding"

Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "We had a bad experience with one of the seats. It was totally in a bad condition. The seat was destroyed, totally uncomfortable. It is a shame to pay so much for flights and receive this kind of "standard" in an airplane."

Cons: "Softer seats more like cement"
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "They don’t tell you about they might take your baggage when you have your boarding suitcase and they made me to put it down saying there is no more space. But if you pay $100 pesos then magically the space appears in the upper place of the plane. They don’t put any of these on the page and we fight"
Cons: "Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars"
Cons: "That they could wait for me i lost the flight"

Pros: "Recuperaron el tiempo perdido en el vuelo"
Cons: "Perdimos tiempo para ser trasladados a terminal remota"

Cons: "nothing of the flying company I liked the bags have cost, the snaks also have terrible cost company I do not return to travel by volaris"
Pros: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."
Cons: "I spent 5 hours trying to change my flight for another day and the people at Volaris call center stalled until my time ran out and was within 4 hours of my flight, thus being unable to change it. All this plus the usual: uncomfortable sitting, expensive snacks and mediocre service. Definitely the chepeast way to fly!"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. This 3 out of 5 flights I've flown with the airlines unacceptably late."
Pros: "I liked nothing, literally nothing."
Cons: "Between almost making us miss the flight because they couldn’t identify or scan the boarding passes THEY printed out (which were just little stickers on the back of our passports with no information), the flight was over 45 mins late! Additionally, the pilot said it was flight 911 to Los Angeles and then laughed and corrected himself to flight 900 - are you serious? Not a joke."
Pros: "Attentive, respectful, and on time! This airline has treated me very well."
Pros: "The flight was on-time. The plane was clean, the toilets were clean."
Cons: "The Food service was very slow, we didn't have enough time to eat. We got seats with no window, it was uncomfortable. Not enough space to strech the legs."
Cons: "That it wasnt a real ticket and i had to buy one at the airport. Help was useless and everyone pointed fingers at each other. If volaris made a mistake that is irrelevant... i gave my money to you guys not them and you as a middle man did not live up to your part of the bargain"
Cons: "We had to pay $150 I’m extra charges for our luggage and carry-on."
Cons: "One hour delayed"

Cons: "1hr delay and seat cushion are thin."
Cons: "El abordaje en La Paz, fue eterno, súper lento ."
Cons: "Both flights on Avianca Airlines were cancelled due to their pilots strike. MEX to BOG and BOG to UIO were both cancelled. I had to buy another ticket with short notice on another airline. Cost me a lot of money because of the short notice."
Pros: "Nonstop San Francisco to Guadalajara"
Cons: "Negative legroom, some rows were full others empty, cabin crew couldn't care less about passengers, never even offered me a beverage or food (even though I would have refused due to excessive fees for everything!), most announcements were in Spanish even though the flight originated in San Francisco. The worst part was the seating being so tight I could not put my knees in front of me and I had to endure the entire flight in pain. I would never have been able to get out in an emergency because my legs were twisted like pretzels and they were in cramps with circulation cut off. Why is there no law against passenger abuse like this? Why should I pay extra just to be comfortable for a few hours? I'm 6'4" and not that giant but these seats were sized for children. Cabin crew never tried to reseat me in one of the numerous empty rows yet they allowed others to sleep across the empty rows. They saw how unsettled I was yet ignored me. Why don't they distribute passengers evenly instead of filling some rows and leaving some empty? They charged me $50 to carry on my bag saying "We're not allowed to have carry on bags." Unless I paid $50 and then carry on bags are fine. Checked bags were $30 but with expensive electronics in my bag I was not going to risk it to the baggage handling crew with their knack for destroying bags every day. I will never fly Volaris again, no matter how inexpensive they are."
Cons: "To: VivaAerobus Airlines I requested a mobility chair and was denied, however they did get a chair for my grandma at the airport. I was told by my grandma that there was a portion of the walk to the gate that she had to walk, she made it, but she got tired. This is not professional at all."
Pros: "Cleanliness of the plane and cabin"
Cons: "Online check-in needs work!"
Pros: "the fly was delayed and the seats are too crowd"
Pros: "Quick, expedient checkin & boarding"
Cons: "Waiting time"
Cons: "We were 7 hours delayed with no explanation and the airline was terrible."
Pros: "We got VIP Boarding without choosing in advance."
Cons: "Very little legroom, seats were not reclinable at all, not a single snack included. Cheap."
Pros: "Able to fall asleep as soon as possible during my flight."
Cons: "For starters, when I checked in I was charged for a damn carry on!?!? Super unexpected expense, and in my opinion wrongfully executed. I was told that I had to pay for my carry on or else I could not board the plane. When I asked why, he said it was over the limit, I weighed it and then he said, u have to add the other small bag too. — THE OTHER SMALL BAG WAS A BAG FILLED WITH SOUVENIR ITEMS PURCHASED AT THEIR AIRPORT PRIOR TO ME CHECKING IN! I explained that and of course nothing happened. The viva aerobús person that ran the register is called Jose A. Carrizo #21 badge. 31/12/2021. - The problem is not the amount that I paid, but the fact that customers before me were not asked to pay, even though I could clearly read the numbers on the scale as they weighed it. My bag weighed 10 kg exactly. i weighed it when I packed it. And the other bag was a bag used to carry around souvenirs from the airport. I think this was a bad way to do business and I’m simply not happy about it."
Cons: "Seat space"
Pros: "Price is unbeatable. Convenient direct flight. The rest is all charged so I didn't make use of it. But for those who did pay, it seemed to be fine."

Cons: "3 hours late"
Cons: "Did not my luggage"

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: "Some glitches in the loading of your pages made The printing of boaring pass and electronic ticket complicated and confusing resulting in an extra charge yo print the boarding pass."
Pros: "I didn’t get chance to flight . They changed departure time . At the first time when I showed up at my gate 17A , 50 minutes before the departure there was a lot of people waiting for flight to Hermosillo , not the Cancun. ( wasn’t any information about Cancun flight on information display) When I asked crew from desk about my flight to Cancun they told that I need to wait for announcement . I left for 20 minutes , when back 20 minutes before my departure time on my gate crew told me that my flight it’s gone. I didn’t hear any announcement about it.

Pros: "The crew at the front of the airplane were friendly"
Cons: "When sitting at the back of the plane there were some girls with 3 beer cans each playing loud music and it woke up my child. I asked the flight attendant to tell the women to turn down there music and she said no she couldn’t do that if I didn’t like it to tell them myself."

Cons: "Delayed flight both there and back. Personal at the desk VERY RUDE! Their luggage policy is f***ing ridiculous! They even weight your purse! And both carryon and luggage have to weight 10 kg - AND IF YPU GET ANYTHING ELSE AT THE DUTY FREE THEEY REWEIGHT YOUR BAGS AND MAKE YOUPAY IF IT GOES OVER!!! They always change the boarding gate and don’t have anyone telling you to go to the new gate! You have to walk and look out to the screens for the stupid sign!"
