Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Worst airplane i have been on since 2007"

Pros: "The service was excellent."
Cons: "Left 30 minutes late from SLC."
Cons: "Rude stewardesses; I was traveling with 3 children onanovernight flight. I just wanted the simplest things- blankets and headphones for them. I cannot believe that an overnight flight wouldn’t be stocked with pillows and blankets. We froze al the way across the Pacific."
Pros: "That Tillamook cheese and fruit plate was nicely done. A pleasant surprise."
Cons: "We had to wait at the gate on arrival"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The monitors kept on freezing"
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Pros: "Delta has great seats, friendly employees and engaged managers and pilots. Even their customer service Center reaches out to help on suggestions. I am flying to Portland for School over 40 round trips and I am saving $4,000 vs Alaska Air. Plus I get miles and discounts with the Delta Amex Card. I am very pleased."
Cons: "I don’t like harsh change in schedule fees but it forces me to plan. I wish the Seattle to Portland Eve flight landed in time to catch Portland Rail system at 11:50 PM"
Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Pros: "The flight was ontime, boarding was okay. Disembarking seemed a little slow."
Cons: "Seats have gotten narrower and closer together and it was a new plane which seemed to have more slope to the wall which meant even less room in the window seat. Too warm in the plane"
Pros: "Food was good Movie technology was good Staff was helpful Aircraft was spacious"
Cons: "Not a lot of family movie selection"
Cons: "Due to the earthquakes, the film festival I was going to was cancelled. Ten days prior to the flight I called AeroMexico to cancel and they said there would be a cancellation penalty, which was fine. When I tried to redeem my credit, they said there was also an additional "No-show fee" even though I called to cancel 10 days prior, which left a total of $70 credit after all their penalties. I called and emailed to complain but they did nothing but pass me to someone else who was equally unhelpful. I will never fly AeroMexico for any reason in the future."
Pros: "For a short flight, they gave it drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Delta made the experience great"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours"
Pros: "Always a good experience with Delta! They’re the best!"

Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Pros: "Extra leg room with Sky priority"
Cons: "We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for."
Cons: "The fact that my flight was delayed for the second time in the past week"
Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"
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: "Our flight was cancelled and we had to buy $447 worth of Southwest tickets to get home. Our luggage is still missing, by the way."
Cons: "Long lines trying to resolve delayed flights. Ni weather issues reported."
Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "Crew made flight enjoyable. Lots of Starbucks coffee and food. Can use wifi for free to stream movies to iPad, which is much better quality in picture and sound than onboard video."
Cons: "Selection of movies to stream to device is fewer than what is available for onboard video."
Pros: "Delayed by 55 minutes in 10 or 20 minute increments as they waited for a crew."
Cons: "The social distancing was completely random. I had two girls sitting next to me meanwhile there were entire rows of seats completely open. Totally unnecessary!"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better training with the crew"
Cons: "Everything needs to change! Worst airline worst service rude people. Horrific experience wish I got my money back."
Pros: "The crew were really nice!"
Cons: "Better seats!"
Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."
Pros: "The trip was for my mom , she couldn’t aboard the plane because the need a confirmation number not just with her name ,she lost the flight"
Pros: "short flight, fine seats"
Cons: "no free food or water, but thats a cultural symptom of capitalism."
Cons: "The flights took off over an hour late. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and didn’t recline., even ven a little bit. I am 5’6” and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Affordability, that's about all that is good with Volaris. Everything else is either bad or mediocre."
Cons: "Don't board passengers onto the aircraft until it is ready for passengers. Both direction (OAK to MEX and MEX to OAK), we were boarded onto a hot (not aconditioned) aircraft for at least 15 minutes before the A/C is turned on. In addition, boarding were completed and all passengers were sitting in the aircraft for over an hour before it started the taxis to the run way....why board passengers so early? At least turn on the A/C and let the cabin cool down before boarding passengers."
Pros: "The pilot was funny and engaging"
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "It was ok."
Cons: "Free snacks and beverages"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and on time."
Cons: "Seats are a little hard no cushion"
Pros: "The crew were absolutely amazing. They offered to tag my carry on free of charge as baggage. No issues whatsoever with stroller or car seat. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The plane itself was uncomfortable and would prefer complimentary snack or beverages."
Cons: "El equipaje tardó mucho en salir"
Cons: "Late and slow boarding, last minute gate change"
Cons: "I didn’t even get a chance to take the flight. I realized my flight was for 12am the day I was supposed to leave within 2 hours of departure. I asked if I could get another flight was told no! I couldn’t even get a credit since I didn’t call within 3 hours of departure. I would not recommend!!!"
Cons: "My wife needed a little water to take some essential medicine. She asked flight attendant for some water--over 30 minutes she asked 4 (four) times! Finally the attendant brought a plastic glass of water --which was HOT--not warm, HOT. I complained, only to be told they did not have cold water..."
Pros: "Excellent customer care and great customer service."
Cons: "Too many people using the restroom. Maybe you might suggest passengers to use the airport restroom facilities before boarding the plane. In my opinion, there was too much people activity for the restroom during the flight."
Cons: "More options to fly out of Chihuahua because Volaris is horrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the boarding was confusing and took a long time."
Cons: "Light free snack"
Pros: "Nothing to like. Crew was unprofessional, rude, and no comfort in the flight."
Cons: "Everything could be better. At least offer compliments coffee/sodas instead of charging for every little thing."
Cons: "Gate decision because we had to wait until last minute to announce"
Cons: "Not much else for a bare bones carrier"
Pros: "La organización para salir en tiempo"
Cons: "Yo viajo seguido por esta aerolínea y por otras también. Y desde hace no mucho tiempo veo que ya no es posible seleccionar tu asiento sin costo ni siquiera cuando el check in está abierto. Esto se me hace ya una exageración de querer obtener utilidades de todo. Es un absurdo, pues todos nos vamos a ir y es una causa de molestia y que me haría pensar a mi y otros muchos en no comprar más con ustedes. Entiendo que quien quiera asegurar su asiento desde mucho tiempo antes pague por este servicio. Pero no al momento de abrir el vuelo. A veces viajamos acompañados y resulta imposible sentarse juntos. En mi opinión y de muchos amigos que viajamos con ustedes esto nos tiene en desagrado y ocasiona que adentro del avión andemos cambiando lugares y retrasar los despegues."
Cons: "Luggage delayed at least two hours. Waiting for it still! This is nuts."
Cons: "Volaris charged $36 for 1lb over in my carry on luggage."
Cons: "They want we paid for everything, even for my purse... the seats very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Departure 35 minutes late."
Cons: "I was havin a bit of a problem loading mr boarding pass when we started boarding. Instead of helping the gate attendant, whom I found fairly arrogant, told me to get out of the line and said I would be boarding last. I expressed that such instruction was nor acceptable since I had paid the priority boarding fee. When I finally uploades the boarding pass (withput their help, I was alloewd to go through only to find out that everyone was boarding a bus to take us to a remote location. So what is the point of charging priority boardong if everyone boards at the same time? If ypu are charging for something you are obligated to deliver what you charged for."
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!"
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."
Pros: "The aircraft seats were nice. The departure was delayed, but the takeoff and landing was fine."
Cons: "Which airline operates today where the ground staff and the flight crew don't speak or understand English? All announcements at the gate were in Spanish and most of the announcements by the flight crew were in Spanish too. Only the pilot made announcements in both Spanish and English. Thank God! And what's with not letting passengers have their headphones on during take off and landing. Low-cost airline doesn't mean Low-IQ."
Cons: "I had to pay an extra $ 26.00 for my only carrying on bag. Which states on my purchase One bag free."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "boarding was quick and easy. price was low compared to other airlines."
Cons: "Where do I start? I booked with them because of the low price and I read other reviews where they were compared to Southwest aArline, whom I like. well, they aren't even close! They don't offer any complimentary drinks, no entertainment, and the seats were horribly uncomfortable on all four planes we rode on. The seat pads were worn out and all you could feel was a metal bar across your tailbone. Try to sleep on that for a red eye flight! Impossible. They sat us near the back of the plane and we had the option to move for an extra fee. I chose not to and regretted this decision because the flight attendants posted up and played cards all night, laughing and talking loudly while the passengers tried desperately to sleep! nevermind the fact that you have to pay extra for a regular carry-on sized bag. This airline is such a joke. Next time I fly to Mexico, I'll just pay extra and fly with a known US carrier. Don't waste your pesos, unless you want to be super uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Well received and very helpful during check-in of luggage."
Cons: "They changed the boarding gate and i missed the announcement."
Pros: "Ticket prices"
Cons: "On our flight back they were weighing bags as we were in line to board and charging people who had no idea their bag was over weight. The crew came off somewhat rude and annoyed when asked questions. flight left 30 minutes after scheduled departure. Food and drinks were both charged when I can pay a little more on another airline and get it for free. Lines for bag drop off are ridiculously long and not organized. Charging service fee for help to get a boarding pass is uncalled for, since many older people are traveling."
Pros: "The flight was just fine"
Cons: "The main problem was that when I checked in online, I tried to add on more piece of luggage—for a total of 2 checked in. But the computer ended up totaling it as 3 pieces of luggage. There seemed to be no way to change this online. So I asked them to change it when I got to the airport, but they wouldn’t. What was done couldn’t be changed. Another issue I have is with this review questionnaire. They are questions for rating the food and entertainment which the airlines don’t provide anymore. These should be removed from the survey. They should, however, ask how was the process of making the reservation, check-in, and customer service in general. Both from the airline, and any third party service like kayak or kiwi. I’m not satisfied with kiwi as they were closed when I tried to call them. So I had to just fend for myself and spend money needlessly."
Cons: "Nos mandaron a una terminal alterna, tuvimos que llegar a ella en un autobús, complicado el movimiento con niños."
Pros: "I want to request help for a refund please. Advise"
Cons: "The poor custumer service. They ruined my vacation and didn't care"
Cons: "It was extremely delayed and the personal was terrible goving information or any solution"
Cons: "Delayed flight by 3 hr just 25dlls of compensation"
Pros: "I like the timelines and service crew"
Cons: "That was not fresh food no sandwich or any of that source."
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: "Our original flight was overbooked, but the agents were VERY nice and helpful and actually rebooked us on a flight directly to CDMX (which is where we were trying to go in the first place) and gave us a meal voucher for the airport and a flight voucher - so we were quite happy. The flight was not long and we came prepared with our own bottled water etc so it was not a big deal"
