Top airlines flying Memphis to Riviera Maya
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was lazy. Poor service and on their phones the entire time."
Cons: "Flying Delta instead."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and aircraft crew."
Cons: "Customer service. Ridiculous when buying flight tickets, regardless the economy “restriction” if you buy two tickets together you put them together even if your picking the seats. A money scam charging more for us to pick our seats. Common sense isn’t that common"
Cons: "A little discouraged that AA doesn’t offer a TV in the headrest for 1st class customers"
Cons: "Better organization of when a flight gets delayed at another airport due to weather."
Pros: "The crew was great. I showed up to early and they were able to adjust my flight so I wasn’t sitting at the airport all day. Best service."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly."
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "That I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I & all passengers would have received accurate, timely information related to the 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Leave on time. My round trip had 3 legs to it and 3 of the 4 flights were late!!!"
Cons: "WiFi was not working on the aircraft."
Pros: "Took an hour extra to get in the air but we arrived safe, and that is always 5 stars"
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I nearly missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis."
Cons: "Original Flight did not depart on time."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing will be done about this but you still cram a lot of people in a small space and it’s even smaller when seats recline"
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late and we were not given an update until we started boarding. No alternatives were offered to those with tight connections."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Issues with times changing for departure"
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "The nice and helpful American Airlines ticket agent at our gate that helped me fix my seating issues."
Cons: "Your booking does not automatically reserve our 2 seats together so I find out at the last minute and have to pay for an upgrade to fix it. Not thrilled! Plus I booked with BA for a reason so it would be nice to know at booking that they will contract with AA."
Pros: "The flight was easy, and we arrived thirty minutes ahead of schedule!"
Pros: "Arrived a little early and without incident."
Cons: "Flight attendant had a problem with my wife asking for Coke Zero. There was one can left and she was reluctant to serve it to her."
Cons: "i never LEFT!"
Pros: "Everything good. Flight on time, crew was pleasant!"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Pros: "We left on time. Unlimited beverages."
Cons: "AA used too small of a jet for the cross atlantic flight. Therefore, we had to stop in Bangor, ME to refuel before landing in JFK. We landed in JFK 1.5 hours late as a result. Those of us who had a connecting flight to ORD as the final destination had our luggage lost. When explaining the refuel in Bangor, the flight attendants were very condescending, rude, and one raised her voices in an aggressive way (while the passenger I witnessed did not). This particular flight attendant must have been personally upset by the delay the refuel caused, because she made sure she was the first to get off the plane. I fly internationally at least twice per year for the past several years, and I was horrified by the entire flight. I will now know better to pay a bit more for another carrier."
Cons: "Seats very narrow. Not enough legroom."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was awful. Food pathetic, my monitor didn’t work, smooshed between 2 overweight passengers. Flight crew lacked simple etiquette."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "issues FA ran out of Mexican immigration forms."
Pros: "Boarding was good only because I skipped to the head of the line to get all the way to the back of the plane without having to wait in the aisles for others to get situated or hold anyone up (as no one was going further back than I). Staff was pleasant, did what they could with what they had. I was very happy that the back of the plane was not very full and I was able to lie down on the floor to nap for a couple of hours."
Cons: "Entertainment was miserable. Not much to look at on the screen and the sound quality was so miserable that I could not enjoy the decent classical selections. I was frustrated by the merry-go-round visual of our plane en route to our destination and wished I could have gotten the simple clear images that were being shown at the front of our cabin. I am sorry that the only vegetarian meal is Asian, as some Asian spices give me a belly ache."
Pros: "Staff was great. choice of food/beverages."
Cons: "The people in front of us were having a party all night during the quiet period."
Pros: "Once I got onto the plane, it was fine. It was a short flight. Everyone was nice and they offered drinks and a small snack."
Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "We waited for seven hours while our flight kept getting delayed. We finally switched to another flight and I don’t even know if our original flight ever got off the ground. Frustrating, irritating, disappointing. American Airlines was a huge disappointment"
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Drinks and snacks were offered."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. 45 mins flight from San Antonio to Dallas had seatback entertainment. But 2hr flight from Dallas to Cozumel had no seatback entertainment. Go figure."
Cons: "Rude crew"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Once we got to Chicago our flight was delayed: originally scheduled to arrive in LA at 1800 we will not arrive until 2000."
Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"

Pros: "Everything. Toilets clean. Felt safe on the plane. Staff wonderful, kind and accommodating."
Cons: "Not enough leg space..."
Pros: "Poor service They had a severely overweight person sitting next to me. She was struggling putting on her seat belt for a few minutes. I was very uncomfortable in my seat. The flight attendant was walking around withh seat belt extenders ; why are you accommodating severely overweight customers at the expense of others?"
Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and the crew were excellent."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and couldn't find streaming entertainment options that were mentioned."
Pros: "Power outlets and WiFi"
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "The counter manager at PHX, Lanell Monarrez was a total witch and whispering to Lanya in front of me was very unprofessional. I paid a full fare 1-way ticket to get out of PHX as they were not willing to allow me to fly standby or make a change to my existing ticket. Crappy airline service at the counter. Good flight crew."
Pros: "Smooth travels"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were comfortable, which was my reason for upgrading to first class, I am tall with long legs, therefore leg room is a MUST for me...but the reurn flight from Memphis to Houston was HORRIBLE!!..PACKED FULL, NO leg room, NO A/C-seriously-Hot air and body odor!"
Cons: "The plane had no A/C!..it just circulated hot air mixed with stale body odor from previous flight!..no leg room and the flight was 100% full..CanadaAir regional jet..and the seats were all narrow, and we were in 1A, !B...totally disappointed!"

Cons: "It’s United. What couldn’t have been better?"
Pros: "Crew was great. The landing in Memphis was exceptionally smooth."
Cons: "The seat was ridiculously tight, and I am a very small person. There was no room for my carry on above the seat, and under the seat made it so there was no room for my legs. Also, we sat on the runway for an hour on the return flight before taking off."
Pros: "I was in premium plus and it was wonderful"
Pros: "The airline used senior crew that was excellent. The entertainment was very good, but could use more bingeworthy titles. Great carry on room."
Cons: "Food and snack offerings were paltry and and standard. More for a domestic flight. No warm snacks nor extra snacks, just leftovers. So bring your own. There should be a bit more pitch for economy. Economy plus was just equal to what is economy on other ultra long flights. No amenity kit and only gave tiny blankets. Bathroom only had soap so bring lotions and other products."
Pros: "I don’t believe I will be a United customer for much longer"
Cons: "I missed my flight due to not being able to get off the plane after landing Flight attendants did not care to help Gate agent was rude Customer service did not want to provide a hotel room because they said the reason I missed my flight is weather relate"
Cons: "Shrinking the knee room is a mistake"
Pros: "Airbus 380 was comfortable and new which made for a decent flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa and United computer systems don't talk to one another. We had a leg of our journey from United. We could not purchase seats on the Lufthansa flights and could not even check in; therefore we ended up with seats that were not comfortable for us. Lufthansa messed up on our meals despite it being 'confirmed' (we checked with the service desk in Frankfurt). The in flight movies were ok; the touch screens are not sensitive enough and take lots of processing time."
Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Pros: "Terminal was great, flight was great, crew was fruendly"
Cons: "No free movie on thos flight"

Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working. It kept trying to connect but never did."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "Scheduled to arrive in Honolulu @ 7p on 10/7 but won’t arrive until 10/6 @ 11:26a. My only daughter re-enlisted in the military and I was due to attend the ceremony but because of United Airlines that didn’t happen. So disappointed as she is also. Overall such a horrible experience!"
Pros: "Pilots had great skill and provided a very comfortable flight despite bad weather. Exceptionally smooth take off. The newer planes being introduced are very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize how amazing the United Airlines app was. Shows all kinds of cool info on your flight and free media. I am now shocked st how ignorant people are to write complaints regarding delays due to weather. It's for your safety. Appreciate technology and respect Mother Nature fools."
Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."
Pros: "First time flying in a small plane. Experienced some turbulence but the flight attendant was very nice so it helped calm me."
Pros: "Left on time."
Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"

Pros: "From check In to arrival everyone was friendly and helpful. Enjoyedvthe flight."
Cons: "The seats are way too cramped"
Pros: "Seats do not decline and make it difficult to nap, generally not much room. Staff was fine."
Cons: "No snacks at all, not even for purchase."
Cons: "As we were boarding the attendants told my wife and I that there was no space in any overhead compartments and that we had to check our bags to our final destination. When we made it back to our seats there was plenty of space in the overheads that would have accommodated our bags just fine. Very frustrating. Also, the tv screen in my wife's seat did not work and the attendant told us there was nothing that could be done."
Pros: "Attendants were cordial and efficient."
Cons: "Because I was seated in the rear near the engines, the announcement from crew were incomprehensible."

Pros: "Courteous perdonality"
Cons: "The noisy children"
Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."
Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"
Cons: "Weather, but what can you do about that?"
Pros: "Even though we were delayed, I still made it to the island within the 9pm hour."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, causing me to miss my connection"
Cons: "Your crew and service atrocious"

By the time we got to our destination we almost didn't get a rental car. There was some turbulence on the flight, which is expected. Landing was very rough, came in too fast and hit the breaks so hard I thought I was going to end up in the back of the seat in front of me."

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to passengers and my luggage was lost so I arrived at my destination with nothing!! I had to wait at the airport for 6hours for my luggage to be returned to me!"
