Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "4 h delay"
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "They charge for absolutely everything and flights are not even that cheap. Seats ate very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Terrible! Terrible signage, terrible treatment, terrible organization!"
Pros: "Good price, cheerful people, direct flight."
Cons: "Not charging extra for everything-- bag, carry on, seat selection, etc."
Pros: "Airline reps were always available"
Cons: "They flew me from Veracruz to Guadalajara 3 hours later than scheduled. Instead of making an effort for several passangers to catch the flight from Guadalajara to Fresno (also ran by Volaris) they would not let us board the Fresno flight; even though the gate was still open and the last passengers were boarding. Instead, Volaris sent me to Los Angeles (they gave me the option of flying to Fresno, but 5 days later. I don't live in Guadalajara and that was not my final destination). In Los Angeles, I had to take a cab from the LAX to the Bus Station, take the bus to Fresno (spend all night on the bus) and take a cab to the Fresno airport to pick up my automobile. Thank you Volaris . . . great job!"
Pros: "The crew was super professional"
Pros: "Literally nothing. The worst airline I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized, no consideration for the elderly or infants. ALWAYS LATE! We had to be bussed to our plane and they kept up on the buss for 20 mins with no air It was so bad that one woman fainted on the bus!! Would never recommend this airline and I won’t be flying with them again."
Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."
Cons: "Not pay to much for my luggage"
Cons: "Crew was not prepared with enough custom forms. When we arrived at airport it was a mad Scramble to find some."
Pros: "The flight was delayed 2 hours"
Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"
Cons: "The flight was almost 2 hours delayed"
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: "Being timely"
Pros: "Getting my boarding pass was a hazel and the flight was delayed about an hour and a half. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and they practically didn't recline. Everything on board was sold and nothing was offered complimentary not even a cup of water."
Cons: "What could be improved is, being on time. The seats could also be a more comfortable with a bit more legroom, room to recline, and space between people. Seats felt like I was sitting on the other person's lap. A small drink should be complementary."
Cons: "There was hardly any space under the seats and between each row so it was pretty cramped. Because of this, the flight was not very comfortable."
Pros: "El abordaje fue muy rapido"
Cons: "Que sean más puntuales"
Cons: "a lot"
Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"
Pros: "Flight left on time! No hassle with carryon"
Cons: "I hate paying for water. Legroom was ridiculously short."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Get the forms to fill up"

Cons: "More organization toward boarding"
Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"

Pros: "Nothing! Crew was rude and liars"
Cons: "Tried to work more with customers and try to accommodate."

Cons: "It would have been nice to know the baggage allowance and that we had to check in first via kiosk before lining up to drop off our luggage."
Pros: "Crew did there job very well. Seats were terrible like riding in a New York City bus. Shamful, this airlines has no respect for their paying customers. My knees were pushed into the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Not having to walk in the rain to terminal"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Everything could be better."
Cons: "vender mas cervesa"
Cons: "Maybe courtesy soft drinks and peanuts"
Pros: "Please don't travel with Volaris, extremely old seats I felt like I was seating on a wooden board with some rocks on it. No room leg. You won't get any help from the Staff at check-in. I was charged $10 to print your boarding pass, the machines to print the boarding pass didn't work."
Cons: "Volaris need to get new seats. Volaris charge you almost for even breathing, I am not kidding. They ask you to use the machines at the airport to print the boarding pass but their logo is not on this machines that's how they make $10 on each passenger. Bad experience."
Pros: "I liked the boarding was pretty simple and went by smoothly. The crew was very welcoming. I was happy to know that the vessel was not fully booked and therefore, had some empty seats to which I moved to. I felt fine like any other flight."
Cons: "No entertainment but that is because it was a short 3 hour flight. Nothing else to report."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "no entertainment choices offered - RADIO OR VIDEO."
Pros: "Everything was fine. I recommend Volaris."
Cons: "Long walk to boarding gate."
Cons: "That delaeyd my lagget and i lost my flight to dallas and they didnot healp"
Pros: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."
Pros: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."
Cons: "Shock to see pillows and snacks were on sale. Even more surprise when my carry on was weighed with my purse yet others boarded with more than 20lns limit. Stick to your own rules especially since I ended up paying $60 to check in language that was 5lbs overweight."
Pros: "Easy reservation and economical"
Cons: "Nothing g I like it all"
Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"
Cons: "No real food"
Cons: "People were rude and inconsiderate of our age and ability to move on our own. Being threaten to tip or our tickets would be cancelled is bullshit!"
Cons: "Kiwi lost my reservation I lost my fligh"
Cons: "They checked us in, at the 2:00am boarding time they told us there was something wrong with the plane and they had fix it. Finally, at 6:00am they canceled the flight. We won’t be booking volaris again."
"More need for sanitary"
Cons: "Flights were comfortable. There were no complementary snacks or beverages. Luggage I checked in Puerto Escondido did not arrive in Cabo San Lucas when I did. There was no agent from VivaAerobus available at the airport for me to talk to. I will have to wait until tomorrow morning to begin trying to get my luggage. My Spanish is very poor, but there a lot of visitors who do not speak Spanish. The English speaking skills of VivaAerobus employees is poor."
Pros: "Compre 2 vuelos viva light y no respetaron mis maletas ni el peso. Tuve que pagar un extra de $950 pesos x una maleta que xke no eran las dimenciones. Y se pasó con 4 kilos. Es una exageración y abuso de esta aerolínea... también perdí 4 vuelos xke no avise 4hrs antes del vuelo si yo hubiera sabido que mi esposo se iba a enfermar de diarrea. Al día siguiente les hablé y les explique pero de nada sirvió. Que tenía que presentar un certificado médico para que me dieran un % de crédito pero nada más de mi esposo que fue el que se enfermo... ni modos de que dejara a mi esposo abandonado en el hotel en alla en Mazatlan. Tuve que esperar 3 días hasta que se recuperará... pero a la aerolínea no le importa el servicio al cliente y también se que está publicación tampoco va a servir de nada..y si compras aseguraba tampoco sirve de nada."
Cons: "Que respeten sus políticas y tengan mejor servicio al cliente"
Cons: "Our flight got delay 2 hours"
Pros: "Crew, new plane"
Cons: "Crew is always late. Felt like we were thrown into a box and rocketed through the air. Handled my bag horribly. Was covered in mud in arrival"
Pros: "Quick, expedient checkin & boarding"
Pros: "Everything was perfect but the price"
Cons: "Communication! Flight was delays over 5 hours. The flight changed from delayed to on time twice throughout the day."
Cons: "Make the luggage policy and fees more clear, they charged me 50$ for no good reason. Smallest seats I've ever had in my life."
Cons: "Many things could have been better. There was no kiosk for check in, the crew was not helpful prior to checking in, multiple occurrences where a group member was stopped for no reason by airline crew member, there were at least two seats that were duplicated on the airlines part, there was a delay on the flight due to over booked seatings, seats did not recline, no phone charging services."
Pros: "Price is unbeatable. Convenient direct flight. The rest is all charged so I didn't make use of it. But for those who did pay, it seemed to be fine."
Cons: "If at least water was provided for free."
Pros: "They gave me a free checked bag! When I took out my credit card to pay for it, he said "No, es un regalo (gift)." How nice for a budget airlines!! May have been due to the holidays, but Volaris just charged me MORE for a bag during the holidays. We boarded on time and landed early. Our baggage came fairly quickly as well. Those are important things to me (especially if I have to catch a bus or a connecting flight) I'll definitely use Viva Aerobus again!!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty cramped, especially if you're tall. But that's to be expected. What I thought they could've done (and this goes for all the cheapo airlines) was at least offer us a cup of water. I mean, come on!"
Pros: "Flight itself."
Cons: "Boarding an off boarding"

Cons: "Seats don’t recline. No option for entertainment. Very limited food options for purchase Meal tables were dirty"
Pros: "The plane was clean and fresh and the snack options were great"
Cons: "Maybe if we had more space between seats because the passenger behind me kept kicking my seat and I was unable to rest during the flight . It really irritated me and made the flight unpleasant . And there were too many kids being loud."
Cons: "We were delayed but they didn't tell us till 45mins before the flight was scheduled to depart. Other than that everything else was good"
Pros: "Flight on time. Smooth flight"
Pros: "Bien la tripulación. El avión austero"
Cons: "Las indicaciones para subir al avion"

Pros: "Nothing especially not arriving late and getting charged extra from Our driver for waiting for us even longer !"
Cons: "Horrible service, rude , dirty , too crowded, over priced ! I was charged for my luggage when I was told it was already included. And apparently they were over widget but the website said I was okay. I even called and tripped check since this was our first time flying with them. They told us to get there at least 3 hour before our flight and they didn’t start checking us in until 3:50 ! I felt rushed after because we didn’t have time to grab a coffee or eat. The workers are rude and disrespectful not helpful at all !"
Pros: "This is a cheap ticket."
Cons: "They tried to charge me for carry on luggage even though I was under weight and under size. They aggressively tried to take my carryon and told me I had to pay 41$ per bag or I could not get on plane. Only when I asked for a manager and found someone to interpret for me and show with a measuring tape and we did they allow me on... total scam - the gate attendant conned at least 15 people before us that had smaller bags that they had to pay (very aggressively in Spanish and many passengers did not speak Spanish so gave in and payed just to get on flight). Once on the flight- you can adjust your seat which for me wasn’t a big deal at 5’1” but any taller would be an issue. You pay for even water on this flight."
Cons: "Delays are understandable but the messaging was the problem, staff created chaos by handing out limited incorrect information. This Encouraged passengers to overcrowd the information booths. Plus a two hour wait on the tarmac,horrible!!"

They first said it was about 30-45 minutes late, then an hour, later, another hour and so on. They didn’t offer anything on board, not even a cup of water. I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"
Cons: "NOTHING! I rather pay $100 more in an airline that has great CUSTOMER SERVICE and that in addition for not giving me a straight answer about how delayed is my damn flight AND taking one fu****ng hour to put the luggage in the carousel for the passengers! I hope they go out of business!!!!!! I know they lost mine and my whole family!"
Pros: "Good, friendly staff. Quick flight as far as in the air."
Cons: "3 hour delay, come on... tight fit. Everything else made it uncomfortable but it was a 98$flight so what are ya gonna do?"
Cons: "Crowded, disorganized boarding process. The worst I have ever experienced."
