Pros: "The crew was amazing and polite."
Cons: "Nothing needed to be done"
Cons: "The boarding was processed by one agent. He did a fine job but took too long to board. Needed to have 2 people managing boarding the plane"
Pros: "Good crew, kind and hard working staff. It is so nice to have inflight messaging and that was a pleasant surprise that made the flight go quickly."
Cons: "I found the delta app to be less user friendly than the United one. I wish the in flight entertainment were in the Delta app versus downloading yet another app."
Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."
Pros: "Atlanta airport was busy and we circled for 30+ minutes, which nearly caused us to miss a connecting flight (customs and all). The Delta pilot was good at communicating with the passengers though."
Pros: "Too long to connect from Atlanta to Minneapolis after 6 hrs layover in Amsterdam."
Cons: "Have all Minneapolis passengers go direct from Amsterdam to Minneapolis"
Cons: "It was perfect."
Cons: "Plane was so small I couldn’t even put my backpack in overhead and nobody told me to check it even when I asked"
Pros: "Crew was extremely attentive and friendly. I wish Delta's flights were this good inside of the U.S.8"
Pros: "Military boarded first"
Cons: "Disabled US Veterans should be allowed to board with active and retired military"
Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "Overall, flight was great."
Cons: "The couple next to me were a little on the plus size. A little tight for my flight. But I was ok"
Cons: "The flight dely 1 hour"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "Great Movie selection!"
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Cons: "Wouldn’t let us take our carry-on because they had overbooked and had no more room in overhead. Delayed our first flight and then our connecting flight left *early*. (If you know you have customers with short connections, why leave early to make their connections even shorter?) Then told us they would not pay for our hotel since it wasn’t their fault. Gave us a “discount” with a nearby hotel that was more expensive than what you could book it for online. Had to wait several hours for them to get us back the carry-on luggage that they insisted we check in the first place."
Pros: "Once inside the plane every thing was excellent. Very confortable. Great costumer service."
Cons: "They changed the gate it was unclear and hard to find someone to tell us where to go. Once we found someone the lady yelling at everyone where to go was very rude and rushed. Once we found the second gate the crew at the desk was very nice and helpful."
Pros: "The flight entertainment and crew were great. They had a lot of the latest movies available to watch, though I'm not sure you'd be able to watch if you didn't have your own headphones (I did). The crew were friendly and helpful. I got a cold cup of coffee when it should have been hot, and they corrected it immediately."
Cons: "They charge you for everything: sitting in an aisle or window seat ($15); checking one piece of luggage ($25); for food, even on a five hour flight, save for complementary snacks like a granola bar or pretzels. I paid $11 for a tiny sandwich (it fit in the palm of my already small hands). I will definitely get good at the airport next time. It may be just as expensive, but at least it will be filling."
Pros: "Smooth flight. On time and took me from 20 degrees to 80"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but there was no onboard entertainment. Fortunately the Wi-Fi worked so I was able to stream."
Pros: "Great friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller, expensive food"
Pros: "Was short and easy to get in and out of both airports"
Cons: "What ever happened to a free drink on international flights ?"
Cons: "The leg room is ridiculously small."
Pros: "Easy flight from check-in to boarding to deplaning."
Cons: "Nothing really! No entertainment and nothing but almonds eaten."
Pros: "The way they treated people, it’s comfortable , the movie"
Pros: "Delta’s crew were professional"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, reclining only about an inch is not enough for a 5+ hr trip"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours for the tarmac in Seattle On Christmas"
Pros: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "These people are reprehensible. They refused to cancel and refund our tickets when the bride-to-be in a wedding we were supposed to go to was diagnosed with cancer and the wedding was cancelled. Every customer service person we dealt with was uncaring, incompetent, and completely useless."
Cons: "Bathrooms filthy..crew surly, no good option for food on three hour flight but cookies and pretzels."
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "Checking bags at the gate and picking them up at the gate on arrival"
Pros: "When we landed and I was able to get off the plane"
Cons: "The guy in front of me reclining his sea before take off and the crew not correcting him so I had to which I did. He told the crew "he had the right" Crew refused to correct him because he was on a buddy pass so the rules didn't apply to him."
Pros: "on time. great flight attendnant"
Pros: "Great service and gate facilities were the best anywhere"
Cons: "All the people I encountered who worked for delta were rude. I understand having a bad day, but everyone on two flights and 3 airports? Ive never seen a group of people be so unhappy about having a job. Will not fly delta again."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Overbooking flights"
Cons: "Small cramped and uncomfortable plane."
Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."
Pros: "On time schedule"
Pros: "Everything was great from the check in process to the de-planing in Detroit. When we checked in at SLC the agent used my last name, which showed me the extra mile Delta staff will go to make the travel with them professional and curious. The flight left on time and when we arrived in Detroit our bags were already there waiting for us. Couldn't have asked for more!"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "Disaster of a flight - two hours late and blew connections in Mexico City for 11 people in our group."
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our group of 11 missed our connecting flights in Mexico City because the plane was two hours late. Cost us thousands of dollars and a day of our time."
Cons: "We have could have left, still in airport Mexico City"
Cons: "Better seats"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "They pushed my flight forward 15 hours but didn't tell me until five hours before my flight. Not only that but they didn't change the second leg of my trip so I was on the phone for an hour trying to straighten it out. Very stressful."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "Even offered a Boody Mary Zor other drinks on the short flight!"
Pros: "It was nice to receive a meal on both flights. That doesn’t seem very common any more."
Pros: "We did finally get to PV. They did have our luggage."
Cons: "We arrived 4 hours late, on a different flight. The second flight left 1 hour later than scheduled."
Cons: "Flight delayed. They were moving us from door to door. My connecting flight was delayed too. The flight was supposed to leave at 1am when ended up leaving and hour past that plus a lot of children were traveling in that flight and I don’t think it was okay to be moving all these families around from door to door. It was 2am this children needed to be sleeping on Thebes plane that was supposed to leave at 1am. Really disappointed."
Pros: "I didn’t like it my parents are old and handicapped and they were waiting for 4 hours there. with nooo help. terrible service, it was supposed to departure at 9pm and they departed at 11 pm"
Cons: "I didn’t like it my parents are old and handicapped and they were waiting for 4 hours there. with nooo help. terrible service, it was supposed to departure at 9pm and they departed at 11 pm"
Pros: "Nothing. I couldn’t even fly. I arrived 1.5 hours early and chose a seat directly in front of the gate. And fell asleep accidentally. Woke up two minutes after plane took off. T"
Cons: "The staff said they called my name many times. I don’t believe this for a second. I am a light sleeper, especially at airports. I know international airports are busy places, but when a man is asleep right in front of the staff calling his name, you think maybe just maybe they would wake me and say “are you benjamin”. But they didn’t. Now I am forced to by a brand new round trip ticket. Immensely unhappy."
Pros: "Tv on flight with good movie selection"
Cons: "I lost days without my luggage and.trying to get it!!!"
Pros: "excellent atention"
Pros: "Efficient and respectful staff. Treat to have wine with the pasta dish that was served."
Cons: "I am only 5'2...a short woman so the seat does not fit me . My feet can not rest on the floor and the headrest does not adjust for me. It makes for a most uncomfortable 18 hours from Lima."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "scheduled layover was 9+ hours. It became even more painful including a delayed aircraft."
Pros: "Free entertainment was nice."
Cons: "This flight was fine the next flight was not"
Pros: "Soft flight"
Cons: "Little bit of turbulence for wheather conditions"
Pros: "Puntualidad y Servicio."
Pros: "Helpful check-in in Mexico City."
Cons: "I asked staff from Aero Mexico twice whether there was going to be any food served on the flight, I was told that they did not know or didn't think there wiuld be any service. I ended up buying food I did not need. Also my husband and I were separated in the flight. Food served was so so."
Cons: "the escalator to the plane was about 30 cm away from it, a kid could fall"
Cons: "The airline"
Pros: "Everything was on time and efficient. Boarding and de-planing went by quickly. The staff was really friendly and there were great movie options that made the flight go by quickly."
Cons: "The food wasn’t stellar but it was fine. I’m vegetarian so it would’ve been nice to have had a vegetarian option, but nontheless, I was grateful that a meal was provided as many airlines no longer offer complimentary meals."
Pros: "Everything. Flight was great."
Cons: "That delta operated the flight back to NY"
Pros: "The service and flight attendants were nice and genuine"
Cons: "The food and the male flight attendant from EZE to Mexico was not friendly, I didn't see him with a smile at all"
Cons: "The Guy didn't assign seats together for us even though there were enough seats, so we had to explain him to do so, I to not understand why do I have to take tings away from my luggage to my hand bag in order to document it for free, the plane will carry exactly the same weight but inside the cabin; I suggest to use an overall weight including the passenger weight for allowance. The guy didn't tell that we had to pick our luggage in Mexico City and put it to the connecting flight."
Cons: "How the gate lady was rude when asked a question. No personal entertainment system."
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Pros: "The seats were not terrible and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The English on board was rushed and I could hardly understand what they were saying. I tried to call TWICE to make sure that I could change dietary preferences because I have food allergies and I was told both times that I was unable to. This is not fair for the price paid for flights. I am very unhappy with the fact that there was food served onboard and that, when I tried to tell the airline what I could and could not eat, that they did not change my preferences or even give me the option."
Cons: "Online checkin not available. It should be. Gate should be announced earlier"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and TV for each passenger."
Cons: "Food is really bad. That sandwich can be eaten."
Pros: "punctuality, crew, both at the airport and on the plane"
Cons: "Nothing, it was really good."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and no one from Aeromexico wants to help."
Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."
Cons: "Crew members are rude, flight was delayed and no one informed us."
Cons: "I was traveling with my 5 year old and we were the last to board since we were in the first rows . There was no space for our carry on since people from the back rows even took our spaces. Spaces should be left available . Flight also delayed . Will try to find another airline next time"
Pros: "The food."
Cons: "The system they have to check in is the worst. Why should you have to make a HUGE LONG line to print a boarding pass than go make another HUGE LONG LINE to check in your bags. On top of it all they charge $25 for the first bag you check in. WTF that's just being crazy. Soon they will charge people to use the on board toilet. The crew members were very rude, don't smile. They give you actitude when you asthem for something. Uncomfortable seats from the 80's. Smelly airplane. I wouldn't recommend flying with Aeromexico ever!"
Cons: "Lin time in the Mexico's city airport."
Pros: "The crew onboard were very nice and attentive."
Cons: "At check in, they had me stand in the same line three separate times. Aeromexico personnel were very rude and even threatened me that I would not be able to fly. They were very inflexible and made me feel that they don't need my or anyone else's business. Even the supervisor enforced the rude behavior of the check in staff."
Pros: "Aeromexico stole my money and never let me board a flight. My initial flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after a 3 hour delay in the airport. At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"
Cons: "I had purchased a ticket to fly from Puerto Escondido to Mexico City on Thursday, November 24. When I arrived at the airport, I came to an airport that was "shutdown". According to a few people I spoke to, it was because of a protest. I was not emailed or notified that I was wasting my time and money trying getting to an airport that wasn't flying out any planes that day. I was very distraught and disappointed because I am a foreigner and there was no representative front the airport or airline that this was happening and what's are the next steps I should take to get on the next plane back to United States. I spent hours and hours calling Aeromar about rebooking my flight for tomorrow so I can get out of this city. It was a nightmare on the phone because it was like the employees were trained not to help. I was told it wasn't their fault, and I need to call aero Mexico to get this straightened out. Not one employee from the many I spoke to consistently throughout the day tried to rebook my flight. They wanted me to pay for another flight which is absolutely ridiculous. I missed my flight because of some protest, something not in my control, and i kept being told too bad. I did not get offfere one solution by your staff. I was left to figure what I was going to do by myself. I didn't leave Puerto Escondido until 24 hours after I was suppose to and it was not by the help of your staff. Because of this, I will highly consider not buying tickets from this airline of their is any other option because it was an awful experience. One of He aero Mexico employees told me to stop acting childish because I was upset about missing my flight for reasons i didn't control. The customer service for aero Mexico was worse then aeromar. They kept blaming aero mar and kept saying they need to figure everything out, yet these two airline work together. Aero Mexico is the one that helps get the flight to other smaller cities. All around I had a miserable day and not one person I called from aero Mexico, like aero mar helped me or offered a solution."
Pros: "Very accomodating, unlike some other airlines where you have to pay for water, big turn off! I couldn't beleive the free alcohol going around twice;) that always makes me happy."
Cons: "No complain here!"
Cons: "Missed connection No reebooking done by klm no hotel voucher no taxi voucher very bad ground service in MEX"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful staff. Bilingual was important for us, as our Spanish is very rusty. Great movie choices, usually planes have one standard movie. Food was great."
Cons: "Airplane seats are always uncomfortable. Aeromexico was no exception, but the great service made it more than tolerable."
Pros: "The way the attendant handled the situation"
Cons: "That the airline overbooked the flight by a lot and several people weren't able to fly when scheduled. This is a very irresponsible practice. We were lucky we were not in any hurry to get to our destination and we volunteered to flight whenever available, however, it is not professional and it is very disrespectful of people's time."
