I missed it because of the delay in the other flights. Attendants in the airport sent me from one side to the other many times due to poor information.
Cabin was extremely hot - such a sauna, and all complaints were in vain. Boarding was messy and disorganized. Very poor experience and certainly a statement of how passengers are going to suffer in Brazil with the lack of competition in the local market.
Pros: "Comfortable seats, all on schedule, and kind team"
Cons: "Extremely messy boarding, confusing guidance, no social distance. I suggest you board from the back of the plane, up to the front, after accommodating special needs passengers. Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was realy nice"
Pros: "Very easy process of boarding, flight and leaving the plane."
Cons: "Besides water and juice, with a small pack of crackers, nothing else is offered, unless you pay for sandwiches or other drinks."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Should have boarded 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "Non free entertainment"
Cons: "I had payed for an seat Gol + Conforto and one of the benefits was that the hand baggage compartment supposed to be exclusive to the people that bought this seat, so when I was entrancing into the aircraft one of the people of the GOl crew said that I’ll have to drop my baggage because the flight was full. I told that I had bought the Gol + Confort that have exclusive compartment to the hand baggage and I had showed my receive of the seat but they sayd that this benefits do not exist and took my baggage of me to drop off. It was an absurd and the worse thigh was that when I arrived at my seat, the exclusive space for my baggage was there available for my baggage and I had to drop off because the employee of the Gol didn’t know about this benefit of Gol + Confort seat and didn’t check out if really wasn’t space to my baggage"
Pros: "Brand New air plane"
Pros: "O lanche foi muito bom"
Cons: "Resolver os constantes atrasos neste vôo"
Cons: "Everything perfect . Marcia was very professional and very helpful person boarding at the gate . Employees like her makes the difference . Tks"
Cons: "Time - delayed twice - missed connection"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Cons: "We had a 90 minute delay in brasilia"
Cons: "Check-in with Gol can be a nightmare. Long waits"
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable"
Cons: "Checkin crew had very little knowledge of laws and almost avoided my nephew to board the plane even with proper documentation. Flight was delayed more than an hour. Poor communication to explain why"
Cons: "I have not had my flight GRU - SSA because I'm stuck in Buenos Aires in Aerolíneas Argentinas Hell"
Pros: "Reliability of schedule"
Cons: "Had to wait in line to check in because I couldn't check in online, in the app, or at the self check in kiosk."

Cons: "Not remarkable at all. Terrible food."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great. Appreciated the few small extras that came with our GOL premium upgrade purchase."
Cons: "Seriously, a sandwich and some indistinguishable "dessert". Honestly, I can't tell you what the 2nd item was on the try, even after trying it. I get that the flight was only 3 hours long, but a sandwich is not dinner. And, it tasted horrible. I took 3 bites and couldn't stomach the rest. It was laughable that they offered wine with it. Had I realized this was the option, I would have brought my own food. My husband, who eats literally everything, couldn't even eat it, and it was a cheese sandwich. How hard is it to make a bad cheese sandwich? Well, apparently, GOL knows how to do it."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "The airplanee accommodations are comfortable and the service was very good."
Cons: "3 hours delay"
Pros: "Airplane was new."
Cons: "Punctuality (40min delay), bad service."
Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense. They were helping the domestic flight people first with less bags to check in and the international flights were backed up with people missing their connections. No common sense at all. Incompetent service."
Cons: "I didn't know about the luggage extra fee.when i buy a ticket ,i mean that include the luggage! In this point , i was very disappointed!!!"
Cons: "Just water and pretty small snacks"
Pros: "As a wheelchair user I was treated well from the ticket agents, escorts, gate agents and flight crew."
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No kosher food"
Cons: "Acentos muito apertados."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."
Cons: "First flight was late so we miss the connection and the second flight is even left earlier knowing than 10 people had to take this flight No entertainment on flight Had to pay for beverage Poor english"
Pros: "Plane itself was fine, fairly spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Check in São Paulo was hectic and disorganized and my bag never made it on the flight after I checked it in- was not offered any vouchers or apology. I am left without any luggage in the jungle and will have to cancel my Amazon Jungle tour as I do not have my proper equipment needed."
Pros: "Internet on board for free! Amazing!"
Pros: "Just like the crew, very atentious."
Cons: "The flight takes off just 1 hour late, they just served a little skack of 50g, even if you want to pay for food they just had one tipe of sandwich, it was 3 hours flight."
Pros: "Comfort and friendliness"
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled"
Everyone was rude. From the check- in desk to the crew, they could use all use a re-training on proper customer service. I had to beg for a wheelchair for my 71-year old father, when I was initially told it’s too late to get one.
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: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better training with the crew"
Cons: "Everything needs to change! Worst airline worst service rude people. Horrific experience wish I got my money back."
Cons: "Boarding timeliness and process was bad."
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: "It was ok."
Cons: "It was ok."
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."
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: "On time"
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."
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: "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."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled for a day before the day we actually left, so we went to the airport the day we were supposed to leave just so they can say our flight was canceled, we had no heads up before that, the airline had to give us tickets for the next day."
Cons: "Late boarding, late landing but claim on time."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the boarding was confusing and took a long time."
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"
Pros: "How fast the actual flight was."
Cons: "The accuracy of the departure information."
Cons: "Asientos más blandos"
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 :)"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "Our carry-on bags were over 10 kilos so we had to pay for our carry-ons. We had to pay for 1 water and 1 juice. The seats are so tight my knees were digging into the back of the seat in front of me."
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: "Fast, efficient flight. Clean plane. Easy deplaning. Great Oaxaca airport and baggage delivery.."
Cons: "absolutly awful Mexico City checkin experience. No English help in any way. No English speakers or signs. Couldn’t check bags but no idea why. They didn’t like our boarding passes. Sent us to many different lines who had no idea what to do with us. Check in agents completely unhelpful and disinterested. Also ignorant. They had to keep calling supervisors over to help. (They need training and there should be someone there to help non Spanish speakers) Never told us the gate. We had to keep finding passengers to tell us where to go. Gate kept changing. Written gate on overhead screens different than where we were supposed to go and then changed twice. Flight late but all the info at the gate said in time."
Pros: "everything went well from check-in to the flight crew to getting a taxi."
Cons: "El procedimiento de abordaje es un relajo."
Cons: "Worst customer service i ever had."
Cons: "Kiosks in Mexico City on the way back were closed in the middle of the day. There was no one to talk to or get my boarding pass. Horrible old planes with tiniest seating. Never again."
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."
Pros: "They were able to get me on an Aeromexico flight which got me to LA two hours before the nonexistent flight would have."
Cons: "although they confirmed a flight to LA on tuesday nov 14, it turned out Volaris did not fly to LA on that date. It took about an hour to arrange for the replacement flight"
Pros: "Efficient on time boarding."
Cons: "The seats are super tight. They made me oay for my carry on. The wouldn't recline and we had to take shuttles to get to the airport."
Pros: "the timing"
Cons: "baggage limits"
Cons: "Staff needs to provide more positive and welcoming environment. Customers are looking for support throughout the flight and unfortunately, this was not the case. Moreover, I believe that water must be provided, I know that we have to pay for everything else but at least water can be an exception."
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"
Pros: "Arrived on time but lost one of my bags and didn't want to take responsibility for it"
For no obvious reason. Flight delayed 1 hour. Parked on tarmac. A lot of turbulence. Crew was nice. I really try not to use this airline overall.
Flight delayed for more than an hour. Boarding gate was changed. Boarding area was too crowded. There were not enough seats in the boarding lounge for passengers awaiting for the flight for hours.
2 hours late they charge me for my 16kg luggage $125 dollars and also before that I pay $41 online for 15kg and they said I didn't pay
Canceled my original flight about 3 hours before hand
Cons: "Water at least. Recline seating"
Pros: "Plane loaded quickly in part because they don’t use boarding groups and because they strictly enforced carryon bag and size limits. Those with carryons approaching size limits were checked separately while others continued to board."
Cons: "No complimentary snack and beverage service."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Desk should be more accessible to clients that are a bit late to their plane"
Cons: "Water can still be free, I mean I know it’s a budget airline, but water?"
Pros: "Clean new plane"
Cons: "No free food or drink. They give you a menu with overpriced sandwiches, then inform you they've run out. One look around the plane and you see no one is eating. You have to pay with credit card and wont accept cash, which is nonsense! Had to ask them 3 times for my cup of noodles."
Pros: "Very friendly and welcoming crew."
Cons: "Service was great!"
Pros: "Quick, expedient checkin & boarding"
Cons: "Communication! Flight was delays over 5 hours. The flight changed from delayed to on time twice throughout the day."

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."
Cons: "In your email, can you include what door I enter at the airport terminal 1? It was a bit difficult to find the ticketing area"
Pros: "New planes, los cost, relatively on time"
Cons: "Checkin in, boarding, Seats, on board entertainment, food"
Cons: "seats don't even recline"

Cons: "Kept us 50 mins on tarmac without any explication"
Pros: "Boarding was really fast."
Cons: "The airline isn’t honest about their delays and the seat space is too narrow, tall people don’t fit."
Cons: "Delete 2 hours very bad"
Cons: "Not good organization while boarding, too much turbulence, very uncomfortable seats"
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."

Pros: "Flight on time. Smooth flight"
Cons: "This airline is always delayed. The seats are too small"
Cons: "It was delayed by an hour"
Cons: "The crew to check in at the airport were not helpful at all. They charge me and my family to print our tickets for us. That’s ridiculous, and an extra $50 per bag. I will never fly with volaris again."
Pros: "Cheap and on time"
Cons: "Crew that didn't care and didn't greet passengers"
Cons: "They canceled my flight"
Cons: "The set to uncontrollable don’t reclaiming"
Cons: "Delayed flight both there and back. Personal at the desk VERY RUDE! Their luggage policy is f***ing ridiculous! They even weight your purse! And both carryon and luggage have to weight 10 kg - AND IF YPU GET ANYTHING ELSE AT THE DUTY FREE THEEY REWEIGHT YOUR BAGS AND MAKE YOUPAY IF IT GOES OVER!!! They always change the boarding gate and don’t have anyone telling you to go to the new gate! You have to walk and look out to the screens for the stupid sign!"
Pros: "The flight landed early."
Cons: "Landing at Cancun Airport wr deplaned and were left in a hallway behind a locked glass door. Safety concern ad we couldnt go back nor forward. Not a nice welcome to Cancun."
Cons: "Crowded, disorganized boarding process. The worst I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Check-in took 75 minutes because they kept moving the late people up to the front of the line. Yet other lines moved quickly. Not well organized"
Cons: "Due to heavy traffic we arrived 35 minutes prior to our departure and were not allowed to board the flight. The website clearly states that they reserve that right within 30 minutes. Their website also did not allow us to check-in online which would have also saved time. They simply told us no and said it was a lost ticket. When I questioned a credit, refund or an additional flight they said no and offered no assistance. Finally, they called security when I asked to speak to someone else."
Cons: "This was one of the worst overall flying experiences I’ve ever had. The flight was from Mexico City to Cabo, and i was supposed to take the flight with two friends. We were all later than we wanted to be due to the México City traffic. I arrived one hour before the flight and they arrived exactly 34 minutes before. I remember because we tracked it exactly on our phones as it was happening. When they got to the check in booth the attendant said they were too late to check in and they had to have gotten there 35 minutes before. I have checked the airline online policies and nowhere does it say that. It only says that they can refuse checkin after 30 minutes but I am positive they arrived before that. I will mention here that the plane was about 15 minutes late taking off. So, the airline enforced strict made up policies on its paying passengers and doesn’t uphold any sense of respect to them? The attendant also told my friends they would not get refunded and that the next flight wasn’t until the next night. We are going to Cabo for the weekend so obviously that was out of the question. So, I board the plane and realize why the attendant must have told my friends the plane was closed. There were no empty seats on the plane, which means that they must have given away seats to people on standby. I support this if its a last minute decision after the flight has closed AS IT IS ADVERTISED. Not a made up 5 minutes before. So I boarded and there was absolutely no service. None. The flight attendants came out once and made you pay for WATER. What kind of airline doesn’t at least give water??? I understand the appeal of budget airlines but honestly, this flight was over $200 which is not what I would call “budget” and the airline skimped on the most basic things— water, customer service, and any semblance of human decency. I am thoroughly disgusted with how horrible this airline has been for even a 1.5 hour flight and i plan to not only write as many horrible reviews as I can but to share this terrible experience with as many people as I can so they can avoid being victims to such inhuman treatment. Viva Aerobús should be ashamed to call themselves an airline and Kayak should be ashamed to allow them on their site."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "they charge for baggage and food"
Pros: "To my surprise I had to took this trip by time convenience. It was a cheap flight and had never used Viva before. Departed on time and had a great flight"
Pros: "According schedule"
