"The whole process sucked very unorganized and not enough I do available"
"I booked a flight SJC to ORD. It included a layover in LAX. I had to transfer my own baggage and pay for baggage twice!"
"No individual TV screens. So you must have a device like an iPad or a phone or a laptop to connect to their media service. Movie selection was mediocre at best. A lot of useless programming in my opinion. Also had a first, was asked to put my mask on between sips of a drink. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of that! We ate out every meal for a week straight and no one asked us wants to mask up between bites or sips. Nor did other Alaska flights ask us to mask up between sips. Thought it was pretty ridiculous."
"I missed a connection due to a 4 hour maintenance delay. The worst part is that I can't even attempt to rebook the flight because there is no way to contact Iberia. The desks were closed because there were no more flights that day. They never answer the help line or facebook. I simply cannot, in any way, even get ahold of a person to help me rebook this flight that cost 1000 dollars and was ruined by the fault of the airline. So I am stranded in LA right now, frantically trying to get ahold of anyone from Iberia to help me get to Spain."
"Thank you for giving us new planes and plenty of storage space."
Cons: "Refundable tickets"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full which is always nice and they served full size cans which is also a nice little note."
Cons: "The plane was pretty old and people just started sitting wherever. It was chaos as my wife and I sat in our assigned seating and just watched people wander like animals."
Pros: "Easy boarding. No issues."
Cons: "Better business class seating, better food and in seat entertainment as it isn’t enjoyable watching movies on an iPhone."
Pros: "Comfortable seat and free drink"
Cons: "Probably if they offer few snack like a chip or nuts."
Pros: "Crew, efficiency, movie/show options"
Cons: "No alcohol, food options (vegan), tv screens in seats"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Pros: "On time flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "Spacing, with covid one empty seat for every 3 row seat would be better"
Pros: "Danny working in First Class was amazing."
Cons: "The food."
Cons: "Social distancing ( one’s seat apart)"
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "Social distancing. Caught covid on the plane back"
Cons: "I never received the flight. It did not exist. I had to buy another ticket."
Pros: "Exit front and back."
Cons: "Only at the airport too hot, not air conditioner"
Cons: "Free internet wifi"
Pros: "The line was fast the agents were friendly, plane was clean flight attendant were nice"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The wifi was expensive:("
Pros: "Ok crew, not the best planes and service but good enough to get from A to B. Was I happy with the flight? No, will I use them again? If the price is right for sure."
Cons: "Friendlier crew and better service"
Cons: "Too packed"
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was clean and updated, the in-flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "On both of my Alaska Airlines flights we took off later than scheduled, by over 15 minutes. It could have been due to the congestion at LAX. And the seats were comfortable if not a little cramped. I also wish we would have been offered adult beverages on my late flight into SFO -- helps for sleep."
Pros: "Excellent all"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "My bag arrived with a huge gob of grease on it which ruined my shirt It also appeared to have been run over or dragged which damaged the strap and plastic buckle The bag also now has a hole in it The baggage service personnel were very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "Great flight back"
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing"
Cons: "Best domestic USA airline"
Pros: "The crew at Alaska is top tier! They are always the friendliest, on the phone or in person. I was stuck in the Seattle snow storm and they were so helpful with flight changes"
Cons: "There was no tv on the plane and no complimentary snack/drink"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The chair was very uncomfortable and it was cold. A light blanket and more padding on the seats would make a difference."
Pros: "I like the idea of allowing pre-boating for families with small children or elderly parents to some extent"
Cons: "I did not like that the airline allowed more than 1-2 people to accompany 1 small child when pre-boarding. I happened to be able to go in with the general boarding but was one of those who was first in line within this group. My seat which was 5C already had no overheard room!!! It appears that 1 child was accompanied by 4 adults when they pre-boarded and in addition to their carry-ons, they put their foldable stroller, backpacks and totes in the overhead bin!! The airline announced a request for people to leave the overhead bin spaces for bigger carryons but does not enforce it. Flight attendants should not feel uncomfortable actually asking to whom the backpack or tote belong to and tell passengers to put those under their seats. Somehow, passengers need to be educated on proper etiquette. Also, pre-boarding should only allow 1-2 people to accompany a child or an elderly person. Pre-boarding should not be taken advantage of by all adults traveling with those needing it."
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive. We were asked to volunteer to check any carryons we did not need to take into the cabin. I volunteered and my luggage did not arrive. I had thousands of dollars worth of items. Submitted a claim."
Cons: "In the SF airport, your crew accepted me to pay for $25 for putting my suitcase into the plane. But then, she mentioned that the flight was delayed and there was no way that I can made my connection from LA to Indianaplis. So I was given a boarding pass with my suitcase ($25 paid) only to LA. The front desk asked me to try other ways when I arrived LA to see what can be done. When I entered into the gate, your CS changed my flight to UA after I have presented my case. However, I had to pull the suitcase out from Alaska, paid another $25 to United and started the trip all over again. All the while, your crews expected me (an alien from Asia) that I should have known every thing get it through, or to claim my suitcase charges. I am really disappointed for the lack of understanding. To you, it may be something happened so common everyday. To me, I was totally lost to handle this."
Pros: "That the problem was eventually fixed."
Cons: "I arrived at the SFO at 715. I checked in and went straight to my gate. After sitting in the gate area just a few minutes, the women at my flight desk announced a delayed flight(flight would depart at 10 instead of 855) The asked that passengers come retrieve their meal vouchers. She checked my boarding pass and I went and ordered myself dinner and returned to sit down close to 9pm. I waited for the screen to change for the new flight information but it never did. The terminal was busy with music and basketball finals.lost of mumbling announcemrnt so I kept checking my flight screen and it still had the original flight. I sat waiting. All of a suddent the tv changes and it’s a different destination??? I got up and asked why my flight wasn’t posted and she told me ‘sweetheart your flight left 20minutes ago.’ I was shocked. How could this happen? She informed me i’d missed my flight that was never delayed. I was so tired and worried and she kept calling me sweetheart. Telling me there were mo more flights but that she’d put me on a 6am the next morning. With my disability I was so worried I pushed and pushed and spoke to both counter airling people. Finally, I got mad and she put me on united. I am so upset about the whole ordeal. That was a surreal awful experience that had me crying on the way home."
Pros: "Plane clean, boarding efficient, pilot cordial, flight confortable, arrived early despite delayed departure."
Cons: "Because video playback system was inoperable (not an issue for me—I am happy to read during the flight) the young crew had to perform safety announcements manually but were obviously ill-practiced and inexperienced at this, bungling their reading and even seeming not fully to understand the words. (They also botched announcing introductions of the pilot and crew, not seeming confident who was on board or as if they in fact knew their names.) This was of course unprofessional but also introduced doubt how reliable they would be in an actual emergency."
Pros: "Not much to like this time around"
Cons: "Boarding attendants announced that the flight was delayed just 10 minutes before boarding time because of weather. Flight was from Seattle to Los Angeles and the weather was clear on the flight path. Two hours later, an announcement was made that it was actually because of congestion at the airport (poor planning) and yet, they did not offer anything to the passengers for the inconvenience. We boarded the plane two hours late, only to sit on the tarmac for another 40 minutes. This situation could have been handled so much better by Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "Was told by TSA in los angeles that alaska airlines had selected me for an ssss on my boarding passes was checked in loreto on a 5 minute search had no carry ons went quick When in Los Angeles went thru customs and immigration no problem however when i got to security they checked my passport and said i had to have further screening had to stand 25 minutes waiting for tsa officer to take me through the line officer showed up finally they patted me down checked for nitrates took picture of my passport than sent me to gate While it was boarding had alaska agent make smart ellic comment about ssss on my boarding pass made it to Seattle than was going to take wenatchee flight gate agent said he needed all my previous boarding passes for loreto and Lax i said i threw them away he said well i will have to send you back through security here in seattle i told him i dont have enough time to make my flight he said you must have known there was Trouble my wenatchee flight fortunately had no ssss on it made my flight very long story short i will avoid alaska airlines next time."
Pros: "Nice comfortable ride. Flight attendants were all nice too."
Cons: "Gogoinflight app does not let you watch a second movie easily. I finished watching a movie and tried to select another movie to watch but the app does not let me go back to the main menu. I had to restart my device couple of times. "Go back to main menu" button will be nice."
Pros: "The flight was great. Watching the crew of flight 256 work together was nice. They were the most polite and professional crew I’ve ever seen! Especiallly helping the elder and special needs clients on the flight. This was touching and emotional, since one of the passengers seemed paralyzed from a stroke and her husband was doing the best he could helping her to the bathroom. My mother in law suffered the same parálisis, so this hit home. My husband and I were also surprised to see all of the Manzanillo Airport crew waving good bye as the flight took off. This flight felt special."
Pros: "Light load so.extra good service.Two drink services."
Cons: "Boarding a little confusing.Could be done better."
Pros: "i flew from seattle to orlando and although it was a long flight i was very comfortable with ample leg room"
Cons: "on this leg of the trip i asked one of the attendants for help with the in flight entertainment and the only suggestion i got was to rent a tablet from them."
Pros: "Coffee Starbucks"
Cons: "Passenger seat 25D was swearing all the time"
Pros: "That I was finally able to go home."
Cons: "My first flight to Alaska was delayed and my flight leaving was cancelled completely. I called customer service and was told I would be given a refund for all the trouble my cancelled flight was causing making me late for work and my ride being unable to pick me up at the new landing time. I never received a refund and my rebooked flight got cancelled. I almost didn't get home on that flight either, but the customer service agent found me a seat. I never received a refund and I missed out on pay at work. I never want to fly Alaska again!"
Pros: "The flight was generally like any other flight"
Cons: "I had paid for a nonstop flight at a certain time to get home for an important meeting, but because I booked through a third party they said I was going to be bumped to another flight that would get me home over 12 hours later WITH a layover. That's frankly not what I paid for. That makes me not want to ever book with a third party again. I don't appreciate not getting what I pay for. Eventually someone took a voucher and I was able to get on the flight, but I'm still upset because, as the customer, I did nothing wrong. Just book the proper amount of seat for the proper amount of people. So frustrating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed again."
Cons: "Pretty sure there wasn't entertainment or food on board- that's why score low. Didn't affect flight though."
Pros: "Flight attendants They could have smiled and seem more friendly. I do understand that it was their last flight of the night and they were just as tired as the passengers."
Cons: "Board information, no page for boarding, we just happened to show at the boarding desk and was informed they have loaded earlier. We were boarding earlier then estimated time. After boarding and seated we were in formed we had a additional waiting time due to unprepared passport issues with customs and we had to wait for several other passengers. Our flight was held for additional 50 minutes. I was not impressed! I was very unhappy with the flight attendant stating sorry we don't have other options for food. They were out of food to buy except children option. This airline was chosen because I thought it was rated as a clean, friendly, reliable,relaxing flight . Seats are hard,stiff and uncomfortable. My back was aching before we got in flight. Windows were discussing gross with body fluids on them. I'm very sorry to say I would not recommend this Alaska airlines to anyone. Very unhappy and disappointed. I hope this will be addressed. Passengers should not have to sit in a flight seat sounded by filth. I would have expected my Mexico flight might have been this way but not my return flight in the states."
Pros: "Online prompts for a flight I couldn't cancel."
Cons: "Online prompts for a flight I couldn't cancel."
Pros: "Seat was okay, but I thought we weren't doing center seats because of Covid risk. That plane was packed tight."
Cons: "They made me store my bag, because I had a guitar which has always been allowed as a carry on. Its a fragile instrument, and has always been allowed as a carry on."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Check in process was super slow. It took an hour and a half. Check in process needs to be made more efficient. Also, plane took off an hour and 20 minutes later than originally planned. Therefore, we landed an hour later than expected."
Pros: "everyone professional and polite very nice."
Cons: "I cant think of anything"
Cons: "Connecting drop off luggage was closed so I had to take my luggage with for about a mile"
Pros: "The conform and easiness from flight to flight."
Cons: "More food options."
Cons: "Just 1 person doing the check inn"
Pros: "The crew was great except the pilot."
Cons: "The worst landing I have ever experienced. We hit the ground very hard, it was jarring."
Pros: "Plane is nice"
Pros: "The crew!"
Cons: "Only not being able to teleport!"
Cons: "When I bought my tickets I didn’t realize it was called a basic ticket. So when I tried to upgrade my tickets they told me I couldn’t. I have never had an airline not want to let me pay the difference for a better seat when the flight was only half full."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. We were right on time."
Pros: "i coul not take the flight becuase this agency changed all my itinerary"
Pros: "I fly a lot for business so I have seen my fair share of issues. I can honestly say AeroMeixco compares to a bad budget airline in the USA if anything goes bad."
Cons: "Hard to believe a national airline can be so unorganized. When you ask staff why the info board does not get updated or HAS WRONG INFORMATION, they just shrug it off by saying “This is Mexico, sorry”. Truly inexcuseable. Even their website has wrong “real-time” info; showing the flight is in Mid air while we are trying to find out which gate we should go to. Never again."
Pros: "Overall, Aeromexico staff in the airport were kind and friendly. Flight crew members were friendly, attentive and presentable. I appreciate the fact that Aeromexico still provides food and refreshments."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by approximately 30 to 40 minutes. However, I appreciate that staff kept us informed and updated on flight status. Since I hadn't reserved a seat, I got seated near the emergency exit. On a positive note, it's more spacious hence more leg room. However, you're not allowed to keep any items with you in case of an emergency during take off and landing. It seems that there was some type of entertainment on the TV screens but noticed they were on for less than 40 minutes and then they went blank for the remainder of the flight . I'm not sure if other passengers were offered headphones but I was not."
Cons: "When you have a family emergency the last thing you ever want to hear is that you are "completely full and you will need to wait until the next available flight". This ticket was purchased last minute due to an unexpected death in the family so it was the only option we had to get my uncle to LA asap in order to be with the family during such tragedy. We even bought the insurance on the flight to assure nothing went wrong but yet he was still left behind hours to wait for another flight and see IF THAT ONE had room. How is this even possible? Why would you even let us book if there was no room and why was he the one to be asked to stay behind? Is it because it was booked though you? because it was a third party booking and not direct? If so then it's not even worth the few dollars we saved if it means the flight will be unreliable and the insurance means absolutely nothing through you guys. Ultimately, truly disappointing and I know that we can not depend on booking this way again if in your policy it states this ist ok to do and not even compensate one bit for making your travelers go though this."
Cons: "Super hot humid no air conditioner at the airport elevator didn’t work and I’m handicapped so I had to pain he walked on the stairs"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment options and the free morning snack/meal offered on the flight from Mexico City to Los Angeles."
Cons: "I don't like the boarding process where everyone hovers around their boarding group sign."
Cons: "A flight attendant put me on the spot, holding up a line of people on the plane, asking me to switch from a window seat to a middle to accommodate other passengers only to find out the reason being that the other passengers took up more than his/her one seat. I was elbowed the entire flights, couldn't even put the arm rest down , and had to rest my elbows on my hips to eat or drink anything. I understand it is not up to the crew to manager passenger behavior but the only reason I was put in that situation was due to the airline staff. I was extremely uncomfortable and after traveling for over 20 hours I was livid with how I was treated just because I am a small caucasian female."
Pros: "Good entertainment - polite crew that was willing to help once on board the plane."
Cons: "Boarding - Crew member came around to check passports but neglected to also check for immigration papers - caused one friend to miss his flight and myself nearly to miss my flight though we arrived two hours early. Checked my baggage when it didn't need to be checked / met appropriate baggage standards. Being loaded onto trams was a bit of an inconvenience - but not the worst thing ever. No vegetarian option for food - wasn't able to eat. It was indicated we'd be served dinner on board but not that there was only one meat option (I'm allergic to mammmal meat - beef and pork in particular). Most other flights give the option of meat or vegetarian dishes."
Cons: "The boarding crew had a bad attitude and wasn’t helpful. Also, once on the plane, i asked a flight attendant for help putting my bag in the overhead compartment and he said “if you can’t lift it, then why did you bring it? You should’ve checked it in.” The flight crew doesn’t realize they’re there to help. Overall, terrible experience because of the flight crew and boarding crew. Oh And flight was delayed too."
Pros: "Immigration into US was a breeze as compared to in and out of Chile Luggage arrived fairly promptly"
Cons: "Not being able to get checked in onn a more timely basis. The long and slow line when you were finally able to check in."
Cons: "The flight schedule is unstable. We were in the lounge and didn’t hear any notice of the flight. Almost missed it."
Cons: "The fact that we are now charged for baggage and seats similar to the economy airlines. Service is also noticeably worse."
Pros: "Arriving 20 min before schedule time"
Cons: "Nothing everything was perfect!"
Pros: "i like the chairs,screens individual, food, the crew and cleaning the plaine"
Pros: "Good selection of movies which are controlled by the individual passengers. Comfortable seats. Served breakfast of fruit, yogurt and muffin."
Cons: "Don't like flying through Mexico City because the immigration process is very poor, i.e.long lines to get to agents . Airport is cold at night."
Cons: "The people from aeromexico is like they were mad or having a bad day very bad service overall"
Pros: "In flight Mexico-Lax the entertaiment was really great. They should offer more than one drink in all trip. It was my first time traveling aeromexico."
Cons: "By unnafortunadly circunstances my family and i lost the first flight from guatemala to mexico city, and the atention service agent didn´t care about our situation so he gives us just one option and it was pay for next fly to mexico, we told him that it wasn´t correct because we had been tried so hard to get the fligth, the fact was that where no more option and we paid for the next fligth. The people working for aeromexico should be more prepared to attend the costumer, i think they would be help us instead of force us to pay as the last chance that we had. Sorry about my bad english, i hope this works for you."
Pros: "There was a ten and a half hour delay of which two hours was on a plane waiting on the tarmac with mechanical problems and two more hours waiting to be reticketed in the terminal. But the airline took care of us with vouchers for food, hotel and taxis. The crisis was handled really well. It was just miserable because we only got two hours sleep. I am glad this was just a once in a lifetime crisis and inconvenience. Maybe it was caused by Boeing who made the plane."
Cons: "The ten and a half hour delay."
Pros: "Staff was helpful and friendly at Guadalajara airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour. I wasn't notified of luggage fees and had to pay in 1000 Mexican pesos plus taxes. My husband is handicapped and we had to be shuttled from terminal 2 to Tom Bradley. It was very inconvenient!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, check in people was nice too"
Cons: "The zonnes for boarding are not respected at all. The crew its handling people's documents in a rush and don't have the time to check what groups are boarding. The food was way too little. I've travel hundreds of times. This was the smallest meal I've ever had"
Pros: "Very poor customer service."
Cons: "Flight attendant seemed like have little attitude. Their attitude doesn't only express by verbal it even expresses by their eye contact and body language ."
Pros: "boarding and leaving plane, the wheel chair service, nice helpful crew, flight departed and landed on time, snack and beverage."
Cons: "landing at LAX was a bit jumpy/scary, airport construction - not Aero Mexico's fault though."
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"
Cons: "No me gusto porque todo fue malo la comida, la atención sobre todo en el aeropuerto muy desorganizado y las personas que trabajan en Aeromexico extremadamente groseros"
Pros: "Your price was just right!!!! On time. Which was great Great pilot,,,,smooth ride."
Cons: "Seating was WAY too tight Way too many people with carry on luggage"
Pros: "The manager was really nice, and the customer service desk people were every nice too. I was compensated for being kicked off the flight, and they helped me re-book a direct flight to get home. The resolution was fine."
Cons: "Was kicked off my flight for some reason. It was not explained to me very well, but I gathered it was from another plane earlier in the day that was cancelled. I don't know how I was selected to be kicked off. The poor communication was very annoying. I stood at the counter for 45 minutes after the airline personnel took my STB ticket, and didn't tell me what was going on. Would have been a LOT more pleasant of they just told me the flight was full, and my name would be called if I was on the flight. Then I could at least sit down, instead of standing there for 45 minutes."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and the liked the movies they have available."
Pros: "Costumer service"
Cons: "If u over weight there make u go back to the end of the line and not for all the passengers"
Cons: "Charged US $300 to catch next flight after missing scheduled flight. They should have put me on stand by but refused. The flight they charged me $300 for was over 2 hours late causing me to miss my connection. There's more to the story than this. I was well early for my original flight and they still managed to screw me over. After I arrived late in LA and missed my connection the awesome folks at Virgin America simply put me on the next flight."
Pros: "Nothing, as I was not allowed entry onto flight"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked and I was placed on stand by for no reason and was not accepted on the flight I had paid for"
Pros: "My husband's knees were pressed against the seat in front of him so much so as to cause indentations in his legs. fortunately the flight wasn't full and we were able to spread out over 3 seats. It was still quite an uncomfortable flight for him."
Pros: "Movies, drinks, I just wish it was a faster trip."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours to Mexico and on our return to LAX our seats were RESOLD and reissued to other passengers and we were told we would be put on the first flight the following day! Heck no, we were not about to let that happen. Finally after multiple conversations with the "people in charge" we were able to be "accommodated" on the next flight- 6 hrs after our original flight. I called customer service for Aeromexico to submit a complaint for the awful experience, not once did they apologize for an inconvenience and make matters worse they said it was my fault my tickets had been re-issued. The customer service woman explained that "I had not paid for a seat on that flight that I had only paid for a reservation" therefor making all of this my fault. This is one of many reasons Mexico is so corrupt."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "Crew was polite and attentive."
Cons: "The worst airline I've ever flown. Had to go through customs in Mexico and check my luggage also.???? I was just connecting! I would NEVER EVER fly this airline again!!! EVER! Seats are so small and uncomfortable and the bathroom so small had to maneuver so uncomfortably. Just a terrible experience."
Pros: "The customer service was excellent! There was a slight delay but nothing detrimental. The flight was very comfortable. There was plenty of leg room. There was entertainment with movies, music, etc. We were even able to track were our flight was on a map. The small meal was perfect to hold one over a 4 hr flight. The offered a good variety of beverages and coffee. They asked often if there was anything they could do or if we needed anything else. I am very happy I chose this airline."
Pros: "Actually, I was upgraded to business. So that alone made it pleasant. But the fact that the plane was new was also nice and the flight attendants were very friendly."
"Very little information was given regarding delays."
"Some of the crew members were not very friendly. AA gave us seats that were not next to each other despite the fact that we were traveling with a one year old baby. The flight went well overall but these small things were not easy to navigate."
"Nice environment but not deaf friendly .."
"Short connecting flight to LAX from SFO. Only thing I maybe disliked was the lack of entertainment options, but what can I expect when it’s only a small jet to LAX"
Pros: "The crew was amazing the flight went well."
Cons: "I payed extra to be in premium economy and ingot put next to free upgrade and the flight was empty behind me so I had no room and I payed more just an unfair and ridiculous waste of money if I have people all around me and none behind me I shouldn’t have to pay for something if there giving it to the people so I get less riom"
Pros: "The plane was really clean and they had lots of overhead storage."
Cons: "It was too crowded and cramped and UNCOMFORTABLE and there was a REALLY LOUD kid that would not shut up and nothing was done about it."
Pros: "The plane is amazing and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Everything was all good."
Pros: "Nice and easy flight"
Cons: "Not repairing the engine of the aircraft while I’m on it. Not having to deplane due to the fact I felt unsafe."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was also dirty and I had to whipe down my own area"
Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"
Cons: "Maybe some water"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was clean and new."
Pros: "The crew was fine."
Cons: "The flight was packed full despite the ongoing pandemic. I will avoid flying American Airlines at all costs in the future. I was disgusted with how many people were jammed into this plane. The woman next to me was sniffling. I was so uncomfortable the entire time."
Pros: "Unlike other AA planes, the plane that flew this particular route was at least updated with seat-back screens."
Cons: "Unfriendly service. A sandwich wrapped in plastic wrap is an absolutely horrible excuse for first class meal service."
Cons: "Flight Attendant should dis infect the lavatory everytime a customer uses since they have plenty of downtime (no longer serving refreshments)."
Cons: "Social distancing"
Cons: "More sanitation efforts. Stop overselling flight to help stop the spread of COVID-19"
Pros: "In the Day of cove it 19 is was fully packed"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES DURING A PANDEMIC. They were not keeping folks distanced from each other, they did not make sure that all the passengers had masks (I understand that people might take them off in flight briefly to drink etc but there were people that walked right on without masks on at all) The flight was FULL. They did a full drink/snack down the aisle thing ensuring that everyone packed into that small space would all be taking off their masks at the same time (if they still had it on in the first place). I did not feel safe at all."
Cons: "Maui to LAX GOOD. LAX to Phx crowded for Covid19 situation. Sat in middle seat between two other passengers. PHX to Santa Ana no one sat in the middle seat. It concerns me that such cheek to jowels seating could backfire"
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "More spacing with the whole Covid-19 thing going on"
Cons: "Flying is no thrill now."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."
Pros: "The crew were great, entertainment was good."
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour they found a problem and so we had to deboard and wait for another plane. Obviously better than taking a less than optimum plane but added a lot of waiting time to an already long day. Not great that on a 6 hour flight we had to buy food."
Cons: "The service from the check in desk to the stewardess"
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Cons: "Super tiny seats"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. Seats were ultimately uncomfortable. Not helped by the backs being loose."
Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."
Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally 9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty good on the flight. That is my only positive experience."
Cons: "The seats were incredible jam-packed together. We had a 9 1/2 hour flight from Tokyo and could not even sit without our knees touching the seat in front of us. My tray table couldn't even properly extend -- the seats are so tight my tray just folded up on top of me. The food was BAD. 1/3 edible out of each course, consistently. I saw other passengers also dumping untouched trays of mystery meat that came as a side. They handed out egg-tomato-cucumber sandwiches which were inedible. The tomato had gone bad and the egg had a sour taste -- I gagged when I took the first bite. I'm especially disappointed with the seat spacing, though. I had a really difficult time getting in/out of the seating aisle to use the restroom. Even with our bags stored under the seat, I couldn't get in without tripping on/getting my foot caught in the strap of our purses/backpack. I couldn't even turn on one side without my arms or legs touching the passenger next to me -- sore neck, sore back, and still couldn't even get a wink of sleep. I will not be flying internationally with American Airlines again. They are the epitome of an airline trying to cash in on as many seats as possible. Save yourself the trouble and fly Japan Airlines directly -- their food was great and their seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Pros: "nothing horrible flight"
Cons: "This was almost a six hour flight there were no televisions available the flight was oversold and there were people on standby there was very little Lego room we were only offered snacks and drinks the crew was stressed we left late because we were instructed to check our carry-ons but that was not enforced until people were already on the plane getting on the plane and getting off the plane took a very long time there was very little leg room it was difficult to move around the plane because it was such a small plane the crew was very stressed out. I am very upset about this flight and will not fly with American ever again."
Pros: "Crew was exceptional (as usual), everything ran smoothly and on time."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to board from the front of the plane backward. I know this is not an AA thing, but a way to make customers paying more feel more special by having the privilege of sitting on the plane longer...but it's really silly."
Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "Good experience all around."
Cons: "15 minutes late. No big deal though"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Seats are too close together"
Pros: "We upgraded to business class so service was super attentive"
Cons: "Business class on AC was equal to premium economy on west jet but lwithout the amenities on west jet"
Cons: "if the Monitor would work and not 1 hr late"
Cons: "One of my checked baggage was lost."
Pros: "Everything was perfect on the flight. The service, the food and the crew."
Cons: "Seats are a bit small. Not very comfortable and touch screen of entertainment system was slow."
Pros: "The on board crew were pleasant for the most part. It was a full flight so they were also working hard. Check-in was easy, and the gate area had plenty of space to wait to board. We did get some sort of unspecific voucher for something for the entertainment system not working... have to log onto their site to even find out what it's for."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work, so luckily we had loaded up devices with stuff for the kids. We were hopeful that my son could watch a couple of movies, but they tried to reset it... at least we got a voucher. One seat back was missing the USB outlet and one didn't work in our row of three. Regular power (of which there are two... why don't the window seat get one?) was half working... so luckily everything was charged. The gate agent threatened to boot anyone off the plane to the next day if you tried to board before your zone was called... that seemed questionable."
Cons: "I never got on that flight because the flight from Montreal to Toronto was delayed so I would have missed the connection. The flight from Montreal was late. I showed up a the airport three times before I got on a plane. Air Canada asked me to check in online but the system didn't work. Because of the storm, Air Canada couldn't even place me on hold so I had to go to the airport earlier in the day. When I complained about not being able to check in online, they asked gaslighted me and kept repeating that their system was "a great product" and that there was no way it didn't work. One person finally told me that it was because I had a pet in cabin. I could have saved a lot of frustration if someone had told me that. I also think that for a flight that left late and caused me to change plans and leave on a different day with another delayed flight because of the luggage conveyor belt that didn't work - which paralyzed an entire airport - they could have offered us a complimentary meal on the plane."
Pros: "the best ever the asian male steward was excellent he made my 12 year old girl happy and special by treating her with efficient service when she ordered food and kind words"
Pros: "The crew was so nice and helpful. They are all wonderful people at LAX and Regina, SK."
Cons: "The plane was hot and cramped. The air didn’t work right causing the flight to be warm and sweaty. My tray table was broken and wasn’t able to hold food and drinks flatly."
Pros: "Flight Attendants"
Cons: "Rouge shouldn't exist. Expected to use your own devices on 9 hour flight without power source ! My battery can't last. Since when is Canada to US not an international flight? 8.5 hours without anything but water ? No a peanut? Very uncomfortable seats and super tight! Super disappointing and will never fly AC again"
Pros: "I have never flown Air Canada before and it was one of the best airlines I have ever flown! Entertainment was great! The outlets were clutch. I got a sandwich and it was really delicious !"
Cons: "I didn't find anything I didn't like!"
Cons: "This review is about Air Canada from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Our flight was cancelled the flight for technical reason, without a notice. We found out when we got to the airport with four children. We were put on a later flight that also left Los Angeles later than the scheduled time. We arrived to Vancouver so late that we could not make the latest BC Ferry to Victoria that left at 9:00 pm. We lost our hotel reservation in Victoria. We were stranded in Vancouver till we could find a hotel that cost us an extra $600 (US dollars), an extra reservation for the ferry and lost a precious half a day of our vacation. When we complained about this wasted time and money Air Canada did not utter not even a clear simple apology. It offered a lousy discount on our next flight with the company, believing that we may ever use such an uncaring company"
Pros: "That even though there is a delay, we still made it around the same time"
Cons: "That there was a delay in the first place"
Cons: "Brussels airport staff would not let me to check in, saying that I need a Canadian visa (I had a transfer in Montreal), even though I am Green Card holder and I don't need a visa for a transfer flight. It took me almost 45 minutes to convince them that I don't need a visa a finally was allowed to check in"
Cons: "Delayed by 2 hours, half and hour in the airport and another 1.5 hours on the tarmac (probably why I got sick just days after, sitting in the germ tube for that long) Seat did not recline, but was supposed to... No pretzels or peanuts offered like other airlines, just drinks Missed my connecting flight in LAX because of delay, but not after running frantically to my gate clear on the other side of LAX, customer service offered nothing to compensate for the flight we had just missed or any solutions for getting us home."
Pros: "friendly pilot"
Cons: "Delayed 25 minutes, and threatened to fly without 15 passengers due to strong headwinds and need to reduce weight. Never heard that one before."
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Cons: "The flight came in 20 minutes late, and managed to leave 1 hour late -- I've never before seen a flight become even MORE late because of the boarding agent. There was no communication whatsoever. There was only one agent working the gate. When it was time for passengers who needed help boarding, he took them back one at a time, leaving the gate completely unstaffed. When he came back, he strolled like there was no urgency whatsoever. Every other airline I'm on tries to speed up boarding if the plane is already late. I was amazed that they didn't even add a second agent to the gate."
Pros: "Was too short of a deadline needs to be 90 min. You need to be excused/allowed if you pay for and check in a head of time... Also carry on size is small."
Cons: "The checked bag deadline"
Cons: "There was gum and gunk all over the seatback and tray table in front of me -- the tray table was unusable because it was sticky and couldn't be cleaned off, but was constantly at risk of ruining my clothing if it can in contact with the mess. Disappointed."
Pros: "flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was not of good quality, had too much spice and salt. Fruit was a little too hard to cut. Toilets trash was not cleaned from previous flight. She Asian movies were same as in the previous flight. Need to provide more choices on SE Asian movies."
Cons: "flight attendant burned my stomach and belly ,she fck lazy gave me and put a broken cup of hot tea into another good cup instead of threw that broken cup away and should give me only one good tea cup , so the fluid drained out between two cup, and fck burned me . How the stupid she is !!! After that they didn't come to ask me anything until i come to show them and complained , and requested a report. I got a picture and all evidence to show .i swore that its fck hot and burned me too...ooo....bad !!"
Cons: "Air Canada failed to transfer my bag from flight 1 to connecting flight 2. This not only happened to me but to other people traveling on the same connecting flight as well. My bag was delivered later then the promised time, it was also returned damaged. It is now almost one week since I have taken my flight and I am unable to process a claim because they have not updated my file via their Bag Tracer program. It is clear that they still have a lot of work to do to be considered a real commercial air line company"
Pros: "I didn't have any food, so I can't speak for that; but it was the most relaxing and comfortable flight I've ever had in economy. Crew was friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "The port for the earphones didn't work 100% You had to jiggle it to get it to work"
Cons: "We sat in the back rows of the plane so it was hours before we were even offered water and by the time they finally got to us there was no food to PURCHASE. Bad enough we were not fed on this long flight but there wasn't even anything to purchase. By the time they FINALLY got to us to provide us something to drink, they came through wanting to take it from us. I was VERY disappointed with this leg of the trip as it was not at all what we have experienced on the first leg of this very long day of flying. There was no time between transfers to use the restroom, let alone buy food, had we known."
Cons: "Did not realize that the person behind me had two cats sitting under my seat and the seat next to me. Felt horrible about a hour into the flight and didn't know why. I do not believe this should ever be allowed without notification, do to extreme allergic reactions that can occur. Luckily I just had a miserable flight that I will get over. If this had been my daughter, most likely she would have ended up in the hospital."
Cons: "Air Canada has to know that generally, the flight from Toronto to LA would be bumpy. Even if they did not know, the weather forecast can tell them that. Problem is that they always SELL the food first, before serving the customers the much needed drinks for hydration. That is a pathetic service attitude. "We will sell first, and only if time left, we will serve free drinks." That stinks!! I even saw them some kids, who wanted to get to their seat (from bathroom trip), sending to wait near bathroom because the food cart they were selling from was in the way. This kind of customer hostility to kids is unforeseen."
Pros: "They didnt loose my luggage this time."
Cons: "do your self a favor and find a different airline. When i got home and talked to others about my travels the said " what did you expect, i wont fly air canada" I wish i would have know before i booked my flight."
Pros: "Customer service was bad. I had to wait long line to check in bags. they took like 20 minutes to handle one transaction. I had to line up some where else to pay cash for my baggage after I checked in my bags. When I lined up somewhere else, a lady told me her computer was down and her printer was not working and told me to go to the next line. I lined up and waited for 20 minutes on the next line. after she finished, she told me to wait for one minute. I told her i can't wait or i would be late for the flight. she helped me and when i realized if i lined at immigration i would miss the flight. i was smart enough to ask for passengers in front of the line to let me cut. i was lucky enough they let me and i made it through."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I hate the new policy where you have to pay extra to reserve any seat whatsoever. I got stuck in the emergency exit row, with no right arm rest, which made the flight very uncomfortable. My earbuds supplied by air canada were of the poorest quality, and I could barely hear the movie. Finally, when it was time to order food, there were hot meals listed on the menu, but the flight crew had to check to see if they were available."
Cons: "1. Flight delayed for 2 hours 2. Lost our luggage 3. Luggage tracking is useless 4, So far 24 hours passed and they could not track our 4 bags"
Pros: "Nothing fantastic but it was a good flight even after being delayed a while. Our plane had something wrong so they took us off the plane and we had to wait until they found a new plane for us, thank goodness we were in Canada at the hub where there must've been extra planes."
Cons: "I could not understand one word the stewardess said. I'm not sure if it was an accent thing or a speak too fast too close to the microphone thing but had it been an important message I wouldn't have made it. The music on the entertainment"
Pros: "There was a decent selection of in flight movies"
Cons: "-the aux plug for the headphones wasn't working properly. Resulting in me having to hold the headphones in place the entire flight -the first time the attendant went by with the food selections for purchase she walked right past me and went on to run out of food by the time I finally got her attention. -I had to ask the people behind me several times to please stop their child from kicking the back of my seat. Although the attendant made eye contact me one of the times she made no intervention on my behalf. - my return flight was in short: neglectful and arduous. I probably wouldn't recommend Air Canada after a flight like that."
Cons: "Certain Crew Members were a bit rude and abrasive"
Pros: "Clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seats being marked @ $ 16 and $42 upto 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "Staff were great"
Cons: "Air conditioning malfunctioning until the plane took off meant that the cabin was extremely hot and humid. My headphone jack didn't work so I couldn't even watch a movie. Otherwise everything was fine"
Pros: "Safe landing, excellent flight steward."
Cons: "We checked in 2.5 hrs before our flight but this was not early enough to guarantee our seats, and we were put on standby. That was a bummer. I still have this old-fashioned notion that paying in full for the seat was the guarantee for the seats. The A/C was broken during initial taxi and takeoff. The flight was delayed 30 minutes."
Pros: "We arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "They changed our gate three times and boarding was inefficient (it took them almost an hour to load a small plane) and led to a late takeoff. The customs process was ridiculous. Crew did not seem to care. No food was provided on a 6 hour flight that boarded at 6pm. Most people would not have thought that they needed to eat dinner before the flight. You had the option of purchasing snacks. The people in the rear of the plan did not receive the honor of buying snacks (or even getting a cup of water) until 3 or 4 hours into the flight. Uncomfortable seats. Avoid Air Canada until they get their act together or they lower their prices to reflect their new status as a discount airline."
Cons: "Not serving a meal on a 5 1/2 hour transcontinental flight is unacceptable. Just because you can get away with it doesn't make it good policy."
Pros: "Despite departing late we made it relatively on time"
Cons: "My screen didn't work. The outlet in the seat was also broken. The connection to the Internet was weak and there was a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was a headache."
Cons: "Layover that was booked through KAYAK was already 9 hours long. I was fine and willing to accept that for the lower cost. Flight then gets delayed from 8:00 to 9:00 PM, okay, that's fine. Then flight gets delayed from 9:00 to 12:00. This forces me to miss my hotel reservation in LAX, This was one of the worst flying experiences I've ever dealt with. Then the airline doesn't even have the decency to give me a pillow because I was sitting in coach. If this is what airlines are becoming, i can't wait for the hyperloop one to force them into bankruptcy. The lack of respect for their paying customers is asinine."
Pros: "I had a wonderful experience with the crew on broad. The pilot was amazing. The cabin Attendent in first class was very lovely and sweet. She was the reason for my nice experience since I had a horrible time with the gate staff."
Cons: "I had a horrible time with the gate staff. They made me check my bag at the gate even though it fits in the overhead bin. I did three flight with air canada prior to this flight with the same carryon. I didn't appreciate the ladies attitude. She said I don't care who or what class you fly so took my roller and tagged it. Then she let the guy next to me get on with his bigger roller only because he was first class. I had to upgrade myself to first class to keep my roller on me. I had things that I couldn't part from my carry on. Cost me $500 US dollar and then she said to me. What ever thrills you. Wow. I am star alliance gold with two airlines and I have never ever been treated this way ever. I will never take air canada ever again. The 1800 customer service isn't any better."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working and in one of our seats the Audio was not working"
Pros: "Arrival and departure on time."
Cons: "Prefered seating promised more leg room. However I paid 63 dollar extra for same type of economy seat. Long lines to drop bags at airport, even after checking online, paying for bags, and printing bag tags. Check in seemed disorganized. I had TSA prechecked on arrival, but still needed to wait in very long lines upon departure."
Pros: "No food offered on a 6 hour flight, but nice flight crew and good entertainment system."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and crew was friendly"
Cons: "The chairs are not very adjustable and are too tall for me (feet don't reach floor and no footrest that could work). The selection of movies was good, but a bit small."
Pros: "The service was friendly, eventhough I was forced to check in my carry on."
Cons: "I checked in 5hrs early to find out that I had to check in my carry on. To my disappointment, as I finally boarded, I noticed that LOTS of people had carry ons that were either the same size or larger. As we landed, the passenger next to asked me to help take her carry on down from the top storage area (as it was extremely heavy). Her bag could've been 50lbs! The plane was over burdened with people's carry ons. What disappoints me the most is that I checked in early, but my carry on did not make it aboard the plane while other people's carry on did!"
Pros: "Good entertainment and descent food"
Cons: "they changed our time flight so now I'm stuck in LA for the night because I missed my connecting flight. When I tried to resolve these with two different attendants, they were so rude and arrogant, specially Sue from Vancouver. Upon arrival to LA, our bag was roughed handled. Had to make a claim."
Cons: "Changed the non stop flight on me to stop in TO from Montreal. Really lame and added 3 extra hours to my flight back to Los Angeles."
"No food o drinks"
Cons: "Complimentary drinks & snacks"
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: "I very much dislike the professionalism this company provides to the consumer, never never will I return to use their service"
Pros: "Good price, cheerful people, direct flight."
Cons: "Not charging extra for everything-- bag, carry on, seat selection, etc."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better training with the crew"
Pros: "Todo esta bien"
Pros: "I sat in the first row so I had a lot of space and leg room. But the seats in coach looked super super cramped, and I heard people complaining. The crew was very very nice."
Cons: "Check in was very very very very slow and the crew didn’t seem to care at all. I also got charged 75$ for my one bag. The people at the gate were not professional and everyone around me was complaining about their experience. I will never ever fly Volaris again. They should GO OUT OF BUSINESS.!"
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: "on-time flight and arrive"
Cons: "- Worst seats ever. I felt that I was sitting on stones. Limites recline, limited legs space.No entertainment, no water. Worst boarding system EVER!!! , No flight again, Do not fly this airline!!"
Pros: "Like how they offer family boarding with kids."
Cons: "Their flight service crews and counter workers need some customer relations skills."
Cons: "Check in was super slow. Had to pay for everything"
Pros: "Nothing. This is like the 3rd time I fly with this airline and it’s always something."
Cons: "Not having us sitting for 40 minutes because they arrived early and we couldn’t get out. If they get there early it should be something good for everyone but it’s actually the worst."
Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Timeliness its great to be on time."
Cons: "The seats it’s too cramped, also paying 4 dollars for a water is ridiculous and to top things off children crying the whole flight I rather spend my money on another airline"
Cons: "The flight was almost 2 hours delayed"
Pros: "I was able to sleep."
Cons: "They weighed my 2 carry on together, incliding my food for the trip, and they charged me overweight. Which they did not do on the way to Mexico. The trip was not cheap to begin with."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport on time, I had Mobil check in, went to boarding, waited for my turn. after an hour, my docs were check. then I found out that I had lost my coding form. I was directed to immigration to get a replacing form. On my way back, the tripulation didn't let me inn. I was 15 min. b"
Cons: "Never booking with this airline again."
Cons: "Volaris closes flight doors an hour prior to departure. Thats unheard of. Meaning they close even if you do not have to check luggage and even though its within boarding time, if you are not checked in at least one hour prior to departure you will not be able To fly And they offer no refunds or reb"
Pros: "The crew was nice; however, the seats from LAX to MEX where extremely uncomfortable. The seats practically didn't recline at all and there was hardly any leg room. I am 5'3 and had ok legroom but it was not comfortable for taller people. Everything on the flight was being sold."
Cons: "Seats could have a bit more leg room and should recline a bit more. Water or a small beverage should be complementary."
Cons: "They need to look after their passengers. For example I was running 10 minutes late from when I found out that they were boarding the flight and none of the people from the checking stands where telling me what I could do or were to go. Especially if they are seeing me struggling with my luggage."
Pros: "Crew was helpful but a bit overwhelmed...seat was marginal...should be replaced (seat cushion had caved in)"
Cons: "better notice of the delays....cleaner plane...don't appreciate boarding right after others deplaned without sufficient time to prepare for next flt"
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "My flight supposed to be $220.00 but when I got to the airport the final price was $340.00. It was rather unfortunate to learn that they lied with their online prices. It was until I was at the terminal did they start charging me for everything that was not included in the online bill."
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."
Pros: "Flight attendants very helpful with luggage"
Cons: "Flight times changed. If I had not logged into email I would not have realized my flight actually left 45 minutes earlier"
Cons: "The flight was delayed one hour both ways. The gentleman who checked me in was absolutely awful. He was rude and argued with me over the weight and height requirements, despite his colleagues assuring him my carry on was meeting the requirements."
Cons: "when we arrived to LAX we had to wait on the runway for about 45 minutes because supposedly there was another airplane in the place where we suppose to disembark."
Pros: "New plane"

Cons: "No need to get to the gate 1hr30 before take off."
Cons: "Never ever am fliying with volaris airlines they charge for everything for seats for food and service horrible they didnt let me carry my little ourse i had on the side like really bad experience"
Pros: "Excelente el tiempo de llegada :)"
Cons: "The gate change of the flight was not properly notified."
Cons: "No TSA Pre Dirty plane Rude staff"
Pros: "That the plane landed. Attendants were friendly and followed protocol."
Cons: "Seat felt like a public bus seat. Charged for water but I was surprise that there was no charge for toilet use. Volaris gets you to destination but charges $60 to check-in luggage. Carry on must way less than 10kg (my purse was weighed with suitcase so I was over). No movie or music."
Pros: "Everything but the seats were fine."
Cons: "Seats were terrible! Bumpy, uncomfortable to sit on even for the hour flight."
Cons: "The line to check in was extremely long and not organized at all! I waited 3 hours to check in my bags!!! I have never had to wait that long! We almost missed our flight. By the time we got bags checked in and got to the gate they were almost done boarding!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All the mosquitos that entered the plane upon boarding."
Cons: "I had to pay 95 dollars per bag when they told me it would only be 60 dollars per bag , i only got them because i had no other choice."
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: "Helpful check in Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Hard seats, worse than a bus seat!"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Overall flight journey was good and on time"
Cons: "The ground staff before we could do our boarding did not allow us to get to the counter even when informed that we had done a web check in... But she was insisting us to pay for the checkin fees to collect our boarding passses which was not professional"
Cons: "When booking flight said luggage include , but when I got checking my luggage $50 fee luggage this ridiculous price to pay. Very disappointed"
Cons: "It was late"
Cons: "After getting off the plane we had to take a shuttle bus to the terminal due to the large amount of planes landing at the same time (but that’s not the issue), the problem was that while on the bus, the pilot assumed I couldn’t understand Spanish and began to make demeaning comments about a “certain kind of people” (as he put it) referring to gay men. I understand that may not be the way the airline feels about the LGBTQ community; however, the pilot is the highest ranking member of it for this particular flight making him the “image” of Volaris while wearing the company uniform. But the rest of the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The fly was asking for money for mexican kids, that is not right"
