Pros: "I’ve upgraded to executive and the service was excellent"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive. Asked twice to get the declaration form and eventually had to go to the back to ask for it again."
Cons: "Llegue temprano al mostrador me paso a Migracion sabiendo que mi pasaporte estaba roto y no pude viajar perdiendo mi vuelo si el me uniese dicho eso yo uniese tenido tiempo de ir a sacar pasaporte nuevo y poder viajar y me cobran otra maleta y no me regreso el dinero sabiendo que no viaje"
Cons: "A friend was flying standby and didn’t get a seat even thpugh the seat beside me was empty. Very upsetting"
Cons: "On the first leg of my trip, the time shown on the boarding pass was the time I needed to be at the gate. For this leg of the trip, the time on the boarding pass was the time the plane left. I arrived at the gate at the time the boarding pass said and the plane had already left. I am traveling to my father's funeral and the only option I had was to rebook for an additional cost of $600. Extremely upset."
Pros: "Arrive on time, excellent flight."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment center and the staff service"
Cons: "They don’t put something to eat between meals Like other airlines that you could get up and grab"
Pros: "The stewardesses were hotties with very cute outfits. The chars were fairly comfortable and spacious."
Pros: "It is a good airplane very modern"
Cons: "Delayed. We wait almost three hours in the airplane."
Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."
Pros: "Everything about Premier was excellent."
Cons: "Entertainment screen in first class seat didn't work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to entire crew not being there. Unacceptable in 2017."
Pros: "The crew were very professional, I liked the free entertainment system available ( movies, music, etc.), and the meal service was good. AeroMexico gave me the best rates from Chicago to Buenos Aires. The crew kept a good schedule, arriving and departing on time."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Terrible rude service, nobody could help me when I had all the following problems: -I didn't get the seats that where chosen and confirmed on ANY of my FOUR flights. -In my connecting flight to LA in mexico they made me go out of the connections area and re-check back in (as if I was checking in from my flight in mexico, which I had already done in Peru) and get searched again just to drop off a fragile bag. -Connecting flight to LA in Mexico they wouldn't let me take my carry on as a carry on even though it was within the size and weight, which I had carried on flight in my other three flights already with no problems. OVERALL GARBAGE"
Cons: "Aeromexico tried to take each penny from you. They even tried to charge me for the second connection check-in luggage for a connection flight from South America (2 check in luggage allowed). Airport is a mess, service, food are poor, crews are not as professional compared to their US counter part."
Cons: "I travel in 4 AeroMexico flights, and in all of then they needed to check passengers carry because they run out of space in the cabin. If you are boarding in group 5 be sure you will not find carry on space."
Pros: "The passengers were cool."
Cons: "Not enough gates in Mexico City. Boarding was very confusing as multiple flights board simultaneously through the same gate. This also makes people linger in the boarding lines even if their flight isn't boarding. To boot the flight was late and I missed all daylight on my first day."
Pros: "Seat back tv with movie choices. Fed on the plane, and nice crew."
Cons: "Always a delay in taking off, and always a delay in docking the plane at a terminal."
Cons: "Same, the employees at the airport were so meant to us and Was not respectful, they feel like they are the boss and there, they really don't have that feeling to help others, I hope they do somenthing"
Pros: "Good movies and entertainment"
Cons: "All our flights were delayed. Also our flight schedule changed multiple times costing me extra money for a hotel. Unacceptable. I would avoid flying with Aeromexico at all costs in the future."
Pros: "Good service and no delayed flight even through the holiday rush."
Pros: "I liked it because the fly was on time"
Cons: "The part I didn't like was that my fly had a connection in Monterrey Mex. and I had to wait for about 11 hrs on my fly from Monterrey to my destination ( Mexico City)"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and efficient. The trip was easy."
Cons: "When we arrived we were told that the entire plane's checked luggage had been decided to NOT be sent on that plane. They said that we could have it delivered to out hotel, except they refused to send it to our hotel because it was an hour away. That's not our issue, that's YOUR issue. So we had to wait at the tiny airport. They told us it would take an hour.... it ended up taking THREE HOURS for our luggage to arrive on another plane. Absolutely horrible experience. I will be flying with a different airline in the future, even if that means going into an entirely different airport."
Cons: "The Mexico City boarding and transfer process."
Pros: "Once you aré on the plane everything goes very wel. The flight attendants are very nice and sweet. Food is pretty good. We had a great flight."
Cons: "Checking-in in Mexico City is crazy and chaotic. Nobody can tell you anything. The boarding computers don't work. Lines are huge. It's a bit messy."
Pros: "Overall the service was nice. It's a shame that the negative had to detract so severely from what was an otherwise nice trip."
Cons: "I'd been warned that Aeromexico is notorious for baggage weight overages. When returning to JFK from Mexico City, I was lucky with my checked bag, but when boarding the flight, an employee had me put my carry-on, my purse, the heavy wool coat I had removed during security, along with a 1.5L bottle of water and other items I'd purchased in the terminal, on a scale, then declared my carry-ons were 4 kilos over the airline's allowance. I then had to head down the terminal to a customer service desk to pay ~$60USD so I'd be allowed to board and not miss my flight. I was the last person on-board. They didn't do this at JFK on my 1st leg of the trip, as I suspect they know they'd never get away with this in the States. I spoke to employees aboard the flight, then at JFK upon arrival, and also on the phone. No luck yet regarding a refund for highway robbery."
Cons: "I was impossible to check in. Errors in the system wouldn't allow me to check in the day before or and the self check-in. I had to wait in line and no one could tell me what the error was"
Cons: "Nearly got stuck in Mexico City because I misplaced my immigration form. Apparently this is a new Requirement, so the ticket must be retained and presented when exiting the country. I was not made aware of this by the airline."
Pros: "El personal es muy amable y siempre te atienden de buena forma. No tienen engaños en ningun momento, lo que reservas es loq ue te dan sin trampas ni tarifas sopresa"
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "As usual, the flight was late - and this time, it was very late. I don't know why Aeromexico flights are so often late. If they had more competition in the areas I fly to, I would never use them again."
Cons: "Aeremexico they don't have good comunication I'm not sure if I'll flight again with them, ,I went directly to check my suitcase five women were just talking one of them was trying to helping me but she was more into they are conversation ,. Them my flight was at 7:25pm it got delayed and changed at 9pm but we didn't take of tell almost 10:35pm .... really it was a terrible experience :-("
Pros: "If your final destination is not Mexico DO NOT travel Aeromexico. You need at least 3-4 hours to clear customs and even if you get to the gate with 10min to departure AM will not let you on the flight. This airline has a near monopoly in Mexico and they do not treat customers with the care and attention western travelers are accustomed to. I travelled SF to Buenos Aires and both on my way down and back they made me loose my connection, which added an 11 and 9 hour layover respectively. The airport in MX is full of low level employees who cannot make a decision, nor rectify a wrong, even if they agree with you. THE WORSE TRAVELLING EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD. Too bad because their on board service is good and they have a state of the art fleet (I flew the 787 dreamliner). Don't do it..."
Cons: "Didn't like delay from Mexico City to Alcapulco...more than an hour because they were waiting for the crew to get there."
Pros: "When shopping for an airline to travel Lima Peru try AeroMexico. If you do not mind a connection through Mexico City AeroMexico is the one for you and price is good. Tacha and avianca airlines are also great alternatives for traveling to Peru. If you don't mind connections. For a straight flight try LAN for flying to Lima Peru they are the best."
Pros: "While flying it was good no delays or anything like that. The fly attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Check in was a living hell... I was in line for about 30 minutes, when I was the second to get check in. Someone came and grabbed all of us and put us in a different line and now we were at the end and in a longer line. Then when I was finally getting checked in the lady would not check in my bags because they were over for a few pounds I took the pounds out and put them in the other bag that did not have enough and even then she would not check in my bags. She wanted me to go in the back of the line. I already had my boarding passes all I needed was my bags to get checked in. So I asked to speak to the supervisor which then she immediately checked my bags but with an attitude."
Pros: "Going through the long lines and customs was normal. But once we were in we located the flight board to see our gate number it had the wrong time and gate to depart. Didn't get much help to determine where to go so bottom line we ran back and forth to another gate. The board still did not change. Later to fine out it was delayed and delayed and finally the board was corrected. It was a long day."
Cons: "Aeromexico does not have the authority to enforce the laws of Argentina. We could have boarded and paid the fee upon arrival. This cost us over $4000 for no reason. TOTAL SCAM."
Cons: "Gate 75 for AM 818 is overloaded. There are upward of 350 people milling around waiting for a number of flights to depart in a rather quick succession. The annunciator was drowned out by the crowd. I almost missed my flight because it was impossible to tell when the flight started boarding. Bussing on the tarmac is fun in concept, but not so fun in practice. The busses were uncomfortably hot, even though the weather was very pleasant. I really didn't like that aft of row 12 you could really smell the lavatory. The smell dissipated a little once we started taxiing, but remained for the duration of the flight."
Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "Some thing. Wait listed tickets. Please let people know when the last tickets are wait listed! This is very Frustrating when you are traveling for an emergency."
Pros: "They were late landing in Mexico City because they are slow stupid Mexicans causing me to miss my connection. They then tried to blame it on air traffic controller delays and rebooked me for another flight home the next day without hotel call compensation or putting me on another flight Nother carrier when it was clearly their fault then be arguing with the ticket agent turned into him calling the federal police because he was a POS"
Pros: "THAT IT LANDED"
Cons: "CHANGING PLANES AND TIMES"
Cons: "Not even a snack in first class. Only one drink service because of lazy purser."
Pros: "Because I booked through kayak who booked through priceline, I didn't get an email from aeromexico which apparently told me to be there 3 hrs early since supposedly they end boarding an hr before the plane takes off. The rest was the horrendousness that is Juarez airport.-- although I arrived an hr and a half before (very normal amt of time in any airport I've been in) it took me so long to figure out where to go and then get there that I ended up being 5 min late to boarding which starts 2 hrs before your flight. No refunds, no affordable flight change options and hrs of waiting in line to talk to different period to no avail. The wrist is that you know they overbooked the flight on purpose and made money. Had to buy a brand new ticket on the spot, but I certainly didn't get one from aeromex"
Pros: "I like everything about it"
Pros: "I very much dislike the professionalism this company provides to the consumer, never never will I return to use their service"
Cons: "Have electric outlets, seats too tight, have beverage service"
Pros: "Nothing Horrible trip, horrible service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 5hrs Hard to get clear information about the delay and when we were actually going to leave. Horrible wifi in Mexico Airport. They had all passengers board the plane and then decided to refuel, so everyone sat in the airplane for 1 hour at the gate before leaving. We didn’t even get a drink of water on the plane. We were sitting in the last row in the back of the plane and when the attendant got to us it was time to land so she just skipped our row. I highly dis recommend Volaris."
Pros: "Service staff were very nice. I felt bad for them. See below."
Cons: "Flying in an airplane that has the fuel to make it to the destination. We had to make an emergency stop during take off. The pilot said an American pilot in another plane caused him to make the emergency stop. Then he said we had to refuel!!!"
Cons: "There were four gate changes. My husband was in a wheelchair and we were running back-and-forth trying to keep up with the changes. They don’t even give you water on the flight. If there is no food OK. But there should be water. The whole thing reminded me of traveling on a second class bus. Won’t do it again"
Cons: "Everything needs to change! Worst airline worst service rude people. Horrific experience wish I got my money back."
Pros: "Las aeromozas muy secas y déspotas. Los asientos duros a pesar q viaje en salida de emergencia"
Cons: "La distancia entre asientos es RIDICULAMENTE justa, y no se diga cuando el pasajero delante se reclina, no sean pichicatos con el espacio...."
Cons: "Boarding timeliness and process was bad."
Cons: "You should provide food as you used to. Prices for food are very expensive on the plane, but plane tickets are still the same. They aren't cheaper at all."
Cons: "No more delayed because i flight every month and volaris delay"
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: "Got me from point a to point b"
Cons: "Crew informing passengers better, being reimbursed for seats i paid for but couldn't sit in because of a plane change"
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"
Cons: "The flights took off over an hour late. The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and didn’t recline., even ven a little bit. I am 5’6” and my knees touched the seat in front of me."
Pros: "Affordability, that's about all that is good with Volaris. Everything else is either bad or mediocre."
Cons: "Don't board passengers onto the aircraft until it is ready for passengers. Both direction (OAK to MEX and MEX to OAK), we were boarded onto a hot (not aconditioned) aircraft for at least 15 minutes before the A/C is turned on. In addition, boarding were completed and all passengers were sitting in the aircraft for over an hour before it started the taxis to the run way....why board passengers so early? At least turn on the A/C and let the cabin cool down before boarding passengers."
Pros: "On-time flight"
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: "It was ok."
Cons: "It was ok."
Pros: "My flight was delayed ... one hour and had to run to catch my connecting flight !"
Cons: "On time flights !!!"
Pros: "How punctual they were!"
Cons: "If the air conditioner was better."
Pros: "Flight cost and on time"
Cons: "Seat are not so confy and they serve absolutely no water. No wifi for in flight movie or anything. If here was it was not clearly offered either."
Pros: "I love Mexico the people the food"
Pros: "The crew were absolutely amazing. They offered to tag my carry on free of charge as baggage. No issues whatsoever with stroller or car seat. Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The plane itself was uncomfortable and would prefer complimentary snack or beverages."
Cons: "Late and slow boarding, last minute gate change"
Pros: "The flight was in time"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was nice"
Cons: "Check in app did not work for my husband and we had a very hard time getting help in the airport with little information. We were casually told that we should have gotten to airport 3 hours prior to flight departure. We arrived over 2 hours prior with no bags to check in. I was also sick during this"
Pros: "It was awful"
Cons: "The airline needs to change and advance it was awful uncomfortable and miserable"
Cons: "The check in process was a disaster. It took me more than 90 minutes to check my bag. I arrived 2.5 hours before my flight and almost did not make it in time to board, which seems unacceptable."
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."
Pros: "Crew was pleasent once in the air, and seats were good by emergency exit"
Cons: "Communication with why the hell we kept changing gates and why we were delayed almost hours, especially the crew at the gates. Compensation once I the air with snacks or drinks, something that says that you guys care about the delay and horrible communication."
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."
Pros: "They provide a good and fast transportation service."
Cons: "We were kind of late for our departure, they kept us for too long in the bus that took us from the terminal to the airplane, but the pilot apologized for this."
Cons: "That it wasnt a real ticket and i had to buy one at the airport. Help was useless and everyone pointed fingers at each other. If volaris made a mistake that is irrelevant... i gave my money to you guys not them and you as a middle man did not live up to your part of the bargain"
Cons: "El abordaje en La Paz, fue eterno, súper lento ."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortably warm"
Pros: "I like the customer care from the crew but the crew from the airport could have been more helpful in helping me figure out where I needed to go to catch my flight. The app also failed on me when I needed my boarding pass. But the flight and the crew that attended it did a fine job. The space is justifiable for the price of the ticket, unlike other airlines that boast value. As always the flight was on time. I didn't have any food or entertainment."
Cons: "The accessibility of the boarding passes. The app needs to be revised for bugs."
Pros: "the timing"
Cons: "baggage limits"
Pros: "Flight crew was terrible as well as the whole process of checking in!"
Cons: "They were rude and not helpful at all never again"
Cons: "Ellos ofrecen comida en su menu abordo, Y NO LA TENIAN Y PASA 3 HORAS Y MINUTOS SIN COMIDA!!!"
Pros: "Arrived on time but lost one of my bags and didn't want to take responsibility for it"
Pros: "Flight price"
Cons: "Prices of the food in side plane."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight was more or less on time."
Cons: "As others have noted, Volaris doesn't even give you free water. Together with only offering beverage service once on 3- to 4-hour flights, that's pretty awful. I also don't like that Volaris tells me it's OK to use devices in airplane mode during takeoff and landing, and then the attendents tell me to take out my headphones with no futher explanation. That's just weird."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, the pilot was good, we didn't have any problems"
Cons: "There's no entertainment or food"
Cons: "The lights went out during instructions and we had a delay while waiting for something to get fixed, but we weren't told anything. I felt nervous during take off because we weren't told anything and the plane rattled way harder than most flights do."
Cons: "I booked a direct flight a 10 AM. They sent me an email stating that my flight was changed in 2 flights leaving 6 AM. And arrival time much later. I send many emails before they contacted me. It took me 2 hours on the phone rejecting a voucher for the inconvenience. Finally they booked another flight for me. It was a lot of stress."
Cons: "Inefficient, impolite, and so, so late."
Pros: "Sadly not much on this experience ."
Cons: "Missed our flight by 15 minutes at checkin (even though the plane hadn't even started boarding yet). They made us but a brand new ticket and was TWO DAYS LATER. They refused to let us fly to a different city, or try a connection, or anything. It's as if they were thriving on our misery. So when they say be there "three hours prior"... they really mean that. Volaris is ridiculous."
