Airline reviews

"The plane never took off."

Cons: "Way too much people... We're in a pandemic and the plane was Full. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Intertainment"
Cons: "Buying a ticket with connecting flight and having 2 diferent airlines combined can get wrong information to customers. I thought I had bought my ticket thru delta and turns out is was with aeromexico, delta has no weight limit on carry on luggage and aeromexico does, i received an email from delta airlines for me to check in so i look at their luggage policy on carry on and when i arrived at the airport i had to go to aeromexico counter to check in one luggage and turns out i also had to pay for my carry on luggage becouse it exceded aeromexico carry on weight policy which i didn’t fully agree but ended up paying anyways"

Pros: "The boarding was made very comfortably. The staff was nice."

Pros: "The crew was nice for the most part"
Cons: "I was told I HAD to pick up my bag at the Mexico City layover, which turned out to not be true. Because I was told by 2 different people AND the flight announcement that I had to, it caused a lot of undue stress when I waited for my bag and it never showed up, because it was being sent all the way to Merida, my final destination. I thought my bag was lost, and I was scared flying to another country by myself, so it would have really helped my trip if they understood to tell me to look on my baggage receipt what city it said on there."

Cons: "Fly was cancelled"

Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Flight was delay 3:30 hrs"

Pros: "Crew ok"

Pros: "Crew was friendly , seats were comfortable"
Cons: "More extra peanuts"

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "The flight attendants they have attitude really bad I think u guys should check your employees."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The $40.00 charge for each suitcase for both flights. Luggage charge was $120.00 Dlls. So perhaps a ticket that already has a luggage allowance and better seats is preferable."

Pros: "Good flight, on time, efficient boarding and crew."
Cons: "Our seats were next to emergency exit, didn't recline and the person infront reducer my space when reclined fer seat back."

Pros: "I think if you pay extra to sit In the front, the seats should recline. Mine didn’t."
Cons: "The stewardess was very rude and"

Pros: "Glad it was on time. Everything was great"

Pros: "The service was great!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "No complementary anything. Baggage prices are ridiculous."

Pros: "Seat assignment"
Cons: "Airlines are skipping on quality"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment seat comfort was good"
Cons: "They came only one time at the beginning of the flight with drinks and only offered peanuts. Since it was an overnight flight they should have offered coffee and tea in the morning."

Pros: "Good service. Nice to have a meal and drinks for still a relatively short flight. Seats were more spacious than I was expecting."
Cons: "Flights were delayed."

Cons: "I believe Aero Mexico had four flights going from LAX to Mex City in the matter of two hours when we arrived so the line to check in was huge. Not a big deal until the staff began pulling people from the back of the line to check in for flights that left at the same time as ours, which put us on a time crunch to get to our gate on time. Once we arrived at the gate, there was no indication that our flight had been delayed and no announcement regarding its status. We simply had to wait and wait, then we finally took off an hour late. The staff on board the plane was less than helpful in getting our customs paperwork to us as well. Not a great experience."

Cons: "Se abordó el vuelo después de casi 1 hora de lo programado, hubo demasiada confusión con la información y filas para el abordaje, aunque tenía mi asiento asignado desde la compra y ratificado con el registro en línea me cambiaron a otro lugar dejando mi equipaje de mano fuera de vista el cual fue maltratado, nos dieron cacahuetes y elegí jugo de naranja el cual estaba en mal estado, y lo peor de todo fue que tuvieron muchos problemas con la entrega del equipaje, muchos tuvimos que esperar otra hora y el colmo: perdieron una de mis maletas."

Cons: "The departure was not at the indicated time, I lost my connection in Mexico City. And I arrived 5 hours late to my final destination."

Pros: "The staff was super nice and professional. The flights were both on time"
Cons: "I didn't like that they change my seat number after I had already picked a window seat. When I checked in they gave me a middle seat ."

Cons: "A lot of waste of time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The worst airline now a days"

Pros: "Nothing at all. The seats in business were not comfortable as they gave me a seat that didn't recline!!!!"
Cons: "They gave me a seat that didn't recline, the food was so bad I almost vomited after I took a bite. The staff was unhelpful and because we had to stop off in Mexico and go through immigration, we missed our connection flight which they then tried to make us pay for!!! I am disgusted and can't tell you how livid and mad this made me and ruined my trip!"

Pros: "The airplane had entertainment choices. It was a nice entertainment system with recent movies."
Cons: "There was an hour delay on one of the flights and we were not notified. We had to ask around to find the information we needed."

Cons: "The seats"

Pros: "Excellent attention,boarding it was on time"

Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was fine!"
Cons: "The fact that you charge for baggage"

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: "Boarding was fast and in order"
Cons: "Flight was delayed,no information until it was late to get other flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we received no help. They kept referring us to other departments for assistance and i have wasted hours on the phone trying to get a refund for a service they did not provide."

Pros: "The crew was courteuos and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a midnight flight so I tested as best as I could."

Pros: "Customer satisfaction is always in their mind. Their employees at all levels are usually waiving a smile and great attitude."

Pros: "In this day and age when Airlines are making you pay for every little thing; we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful service and attention to the customer Aeromexico still gives to each customer."
Cons: "Nothing - we loved our whole experience."

Pros: "Why after paying my ticket i had to pay for my checked in bag. Very disappointed."
Cons: "Pay for it"

Pros: "Shops"
Cons: "Not knowing where the gate was until 30 min before.No Awro Mexico employee to help with the gate change and monitor was wrong"

Pros: "Price and promotions."
Cons: "The free wifi service had to many restrictions and it was hard to communicate with other services and with friends ,that await your status on the boarding room. Benito Juarez airport Mexico D.F"

Pros: "The crew were incredibly nice and accommodating."
Cons: "Because it was an older plane, the entertainment options were minimal. The few TV's that came down had very poor quality- grainy and discolored with lines going through it."

Cons: "The fly was delayed for more then 30 minutes with no explanation,I paid for the Saturday rate and end flying on Sunday what I thing is not fear . Why I have to pay more? About the food we didn't receive a meal ,they give us only some peanut and cup of water since I am a diabetic person I need to eat frequently,"

Pros: "I wish I could post pictures of the broken magazine holder in front of my seat and the tangled seat belt that I could barely tie. Anyone heavier than me would not be able to buckle up on that seat. It was also VERY cold. The people around me were all covered up in heavy jackets and hats. When I mentioned this to the crew,they treated me with disdain and she said they could do nothing. What a shame, this used to be a great airline."
Cons: "Rude crew members, broken seat belt, broken magazine holder, way too cold for comfort."

Pros: "I booked the flight for my mother to rush to Mexico to be with her mother while in the hospital. Aeromexico did not have any reservation. So my mother had to pay for a ticket through Aeromexico. I email the company to refund me and haven't heard back."

Pros: "Loved the service and great to have a complimentary meal provided. The airplane and seating were comfortable and in great shape."
Cons: "I don't like assigned seating, I prefer Southwest-style boarding. Gate area at LAX was very crowded and multiple boarding flights were intermingled."

Cons: "Food was terrible. Pasta was lukewarm with congealed cheese, the least they could have done was fully warm the food."

"My Spanish is weak and it was a problem when their website glitched and duplicated one of my passenger’s names. Customer service was poor to correct it."

Cons: "That they would have let my parents actually fly."

Cons: "It was awful. Was not offered any food and refused when asked for water. Seats are awful uncomfortable and for small people, no leg room at all. No internet no space no comfort nothing. The attendants were rude and refused to speak English. It was horrible I will never use volaris again"

Pros: "Todo esta bien"

Pros: "No frills. To the point. Quick 2 hour flight, nice plane."
Cons: "Take off was delayed"

Pros: "The crew was super professional"

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: "Free snacks and beverages"

Pros: "Crew was amazing and on time."
Cons: "Seats are a little hard no cushion"

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"

Pros: "NOTHING"
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"

Cons: "It was an overnight flight so I would have appreciated if the crew members refrain from super loud conversations right next to my seat (I was obviously trying to sleep as everyone else on the flight."

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: "nothing"
Cons: "a lot"

Cons: "My wife needed a little water to take some essential medicine. She asked flight attendant for some water--over 30 minutes she asked 4 (four) times! Finally the attendant brought a plastic glass of water --which was HOT--not warm, HOT. I complained, only to be told they did not have cold water..."

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: "Get the forms to fill up"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "More organization toward boarding"

Cons: "Yes it could be better travel to complicated on Volaris"

Pros: "One of the worst experience I’ve had."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 3 hours! Completely ruined out plans."

Pros: "Nothing"

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

Pros: "The flight was swift without a hiccup, boarding was also done in a quick manner. Volaris is always great in service even at the counter."
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."

Cons: "Light free snack"

Cons: "Not having to walk in the rain to terminal"

Pros: "Good no-frills airlines"
Cons: "For this type of airline – nothing"

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Everything could be better."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "Everything was fine. I recommend Volaris."
Cons: "Long walk to boarding gate."

Cons: "Excelente"

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."

Cons: "Flight Network never booked my ticket, you need to remove them"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."

Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"

Pros: "N/a"
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."

Pros: "Flight got dekayed, staff neber smiled, rude!!! And i have neber felt such tublences in my life time. Flight attebdants did not bother to say thank you or one smile but talk to others of their own i find it rude!!!! I asked fkr water, brought to me 10 min late and was not cold or fresh in a plastic cup???"

Pros: "Primera y ultima vez que volamos con Volaris. Espantosos asientos tan cerca de cada uno. Parece qur estan transportando animales."
