Pros: "Fueron muy amables en el aeropuerto y en el avión"
Cons: "La atención de las personas a cargo"
Pros: "Safe trip and very nice crew."

Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Pros: "I loved the flight attendants and the desk staff everyone was so friendly and made me want to travel delta again."
Cons: "Delta doesn’t offer military spouses free checked bags and I found this out at the airport. It was disheartening, but at least it’s Delta and not the airline that is supposed to represent America."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small aircraft"
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Service, puntuality, the flight was delay, no word of apology for been late"
Pros: "All on time, the flight attendants were nice and polite."
Cons: "That I couldn't change my seat (I didn't want in the confort zone) just in an empty row that it was behind me."

Pros: "Super friendly staff and on-time flights. Love the TV, movies, wi-fi and snack goodies!"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Cons: "The prices of the available snacks."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "My suitcase came without a wheel. Damaged luggage."
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Cons: "they treated us like cows"
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable; however, I have always had great luck with the Aeromexico crew."
Cons: "The boarding process was not well executed; I know this also involves the airport. They called the various groups to board and then we stood in the ramp, closely packed, for about 20 minutes before they started loading the plane. Also, for the flight, most every seat was filled. Given the concerns regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, the close placement of passengers was concerning."
Cons: "Better seats and better communication as it took so long to get our luggage, I would have been fine waiting but they kept changing the location where we were supposed to get our luggage from"
Cons: "Seat confort is bad, specially for tall travelers."
Cons: "Customer service in GDL airport"
Pros: "On time service and great rates."
Cons: "Better food and more room. Cramped and tight seems. Like your jammed into a can."

IM HAVING HARD TIME LOOKING FOR ANOTHER FLY TICKET NOW ..... IT HAS BEEN HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE MISSING MY WORK DAY IN CHICAGO HERE WAITING IN THE MIDDLE OF MY TRIP .."
Cons: "I’m literally ABOUT TO CRYING BECASE I LOST ONE VERY IMPORTANT BUSINESS MEETING IN CHICAGO BECAUSE OF YOUUUUUU !,!!!!! If you need more information contact me @ 5129710014 I’m your customer since time a go ... never had this before but IT WAS THE LAST TIME !,!,!,! I’m going to write as many bad"

Cons: "Price is OK"
Cons: "Everything is perfect Thanks"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Had a 2 hour delay"
Cons: "We arrived to the airport over two hours before our departure time. We waited in line for over an hour to check our bags and get our boarding passes. When we checked our bags, we were told to hurry as our flight was boarding. We rushed through the airport to get in line to board the plane. When we got to the line to board the plane, we waited another hour before we were told to get on a bus to take us to our plane. Our plan left 45 minutes later than expected, but the airport never communicated any details about a delay. We rushed to wait in line instead of having time to get things at the airport or sit."

Pros: "Very organized and on time"
Pros: "It wasn’t a full flight"
Cons: "The flight attendants were too loud and not as attentive"

Pros: "The flight left on time"
Pros: "Everything went well for the most part.. food not that great but The staff was friendly. The only 2 issues I had 1) no movie on the way to our destinmovies/shows on the way back. 2) my daughter got sick on the way back due to turbulence & I ask for a bag to put her dirty clothes in & was denied. Would have been nice not to have been carrying around vomited clothes on my hand."
Cons: "The only 2 issues I had 1) no movie on the way to our destinmovies/shows on the way back. 2) my daughter got sick on the way back due to turbulence & I ask for a bag to put her dirty clothes in & was denied. Would have been nice not to have been carrying around vomited clothes on my hand."

Cons: "Waited for over 30 mins for luggage to appear on carousel"
Pros: "The crew is always respectful and patient at AeroMexico"
Pros: "I was able to get home."
Cons: "Check-in at GDL airport is completely insane! They should have a line for those who have already pre-checked themselves and just need to drop off their luggage."
Pros: "Flight stewardship exelent"
Cons: "Tunnel passage was frozen had to wait 20 minutes, luggage carrusel not working from landing to exit the airport took" 2 "hrs ridiculous. .."
Pros: "Food offered on our flight"
Cons: "No one knew where our gate was because the monitors only said terminal C. The gate was not mentioned until 30 mins before our flight. We didn’t like how we had to take a bus which they packed us up like sardines to take us to go up to our plane. Our plane seats had no leg room whatsoever and it became more crammed when the person in front of you put their seat back."
Cons: "Everything!!!! Í Will never fly with you again"
Pros: "I liked that the flight departed and landed on time."
Cons: "The flight itself went well. The best part of it was the professionalism of the staff. The worst part was waiting more than an hour for the luggage to come out of the carousel. This is a record for me. Only two flights arrived at that time at O'Hare International Airport."
Pros: "Everyone very nice people"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Was late by an hour in birding. Also, was charged for checked bag, when their webpage states that one was included."
Cons: "Was over an hour late boarding. Webpage stated that one checked bad was included, but was charged anyway."
Cons: "Because They Sold My Tickets. Now I'm In The Airport Waiting For 8:17pm Flight"
Pros: "The flight was on time and I had no issues filight attendants Aeromexico in Guadalajara on either trip."
Cons: "The Customer Service agents at ORD are pretty bad, not knowledgeable and quick to pass on the buck. I was not allowed to bring on an extra package I had with me (pre paid) and was asked to take the package to TSA for approval. TSA approved it but the ticket agent still did not allow me to take it on, now I'm out $45. Also they made me check my carry on because it was slightly larger than the recommended size, even though it fits in their recommend size criteria."

Pros: "Everything was excellent except for the treatment in Mexico with aeromexico when registering my luggage, poor customer service."

Pros: "The crew onboard were very nice and attentive."
Cons: "At check in, they had me stand in the same line three separate times. Aeromexico personnel were very rude and even threatened me that I would not be able to fly. They were very inflexible and made me feel that they don't need my or anyone else's business. Even the supervisor enforced the rude behavior of the check in staff."
Pros: "There was no entertainment on the plane. It would ne nice if they had wi-fi"
Cons: "We had items stolen from two luggages. The were cell phones and the accessories plus some jewelry. These could have only been know by means of the security scans of the luggage. One item disappeared for a day. None of the other four were tapered with. I have contacted Aeromexico twice by email while in Mexico. The first time I was told someone would contact me and no one did. The second time there was no reply. I asked that some call be on my cell and I have received nothing."

Pros: "We liked the effiency and politeness of the staff. We enjoyed the movies, the food was better than normal."

Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"
Pros: "Was able to store my carry on and arrived early"
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "The food, entertainment and crew were satisfactory."
Cons: "I did not like that my original flight was flat out cancelled. It made for a stressful trip."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "There was water dripping from the vents. When I tried to inform the flight attendant, she shut me down so fast I couldn't believe it. All she had to do was reassure me that it wasn't a safety issue. Her attitude was like she was tired of telling passengers that it was perfectly normal. Very unprofessional!"
Cons: "Allergic to cat/dog dander. Had dog with no kennel in window seat of my row. I was on aisle seat. As we all got up to let the owner go to the bathroom a dog followed walking on my seat. For the last hour and a half of the flight the dog Sat on the owners lap. My allergies and asthma begin to flare up prior to landing . Not a pleasant flight ."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, there is nothing to rate except the inconvenience it caused me and my fiancee who were traveling back home for a business meeting."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "Individual entertainment. Wowww!"
Cons: "Seat was a bit tiny. Free food snacks were not quite good."
Pros: "Great staff and leg room/comfort. Food, drinks and entertainment was superb! Comfortable Boeing 787."

Pros: "Fast check in, timely take off & arrival Excellent and friendly service"
Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "After traveling on 9 flights during a 2.5 week period, this crew mishandled my bag leaving damage to the handle and top of my bags."

Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was perfect, new, and relevant. I also had an empty seat between myself and another passenger so my legs weren't as cramped."
Pros: "My flight was very short. It was a straight flight and there was no turbulence. Flight pulled off when it was supposed and early landing."
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "The new Dreamliner was amazing. However my great experience was also directly a result of the unfilled nature of the plane. This gave so much room to the passengers, food service was fast and plentiful, and crew was in a good mood."
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Pros: "Nice plane, very friendly pilot."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"
Pros: "Easy boarding and smooth flight."
Cons: "No individual screens. Limited and unhealthy food options."
Pros: "Overall was a good experience during the flight."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Food was so-so and the seats could use a little more padding"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "I was boarding group 5 and had the very last row, not comfortable."
Pros: "Left on time. Arrived earlier than scheduled time. Smooth overall"
Cons: "Three crying babies all in a row for nearly entire trip."
Pros: "The flexibility"
Pros: "I liked the in flight entertainment offered at not extra charge. This was probably the best thing about the whole experience."
Cons: "I do not like this assigned seating thing. Most people wanted to move around. And with assigned seating boarding takes longer because you have people coming in all over the plain instead of filling form back to front. Just takes too long."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Flight was one time and crew was very nice."
Cons: "The direct TV wasn't working which was frustrating when"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The flight itself was very smooth. I asked for extra snacks and the FA's happily obliged."
Cons: "The air vents were very low pressure. I was disappointed there weren't tv's like there were on my first flight. Sitting behind the wing was so loud I couldn't hear the announcements on the PA."
Pros: "Wifi on the plane."
Cons: "I could not get my laptop to connect to the in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "Our plane departed on time, 6:05 AM. About 6:40 A E turned back towards Boston. There was a problem with the wing. It got repaired. We deplaned. And waited. And waited. Then we needed fuel to be removed. And we waited. And waited. Then we got back on board, got to the runway, and the RIGHT ENGINE didn't start. So they tried to repair it, couldn't (didn't want to fly on that old, broken plane anyway at this point), and we had our flight canceled. All told, I spent 10+ hours at Logan Airport. It was an absolute disaster."
Pros: "Boarding was much more organized with lines marked for each boarding group. The crew was super friendly. Also, I received a whole can of cran-apple juice, which was much nicer than just a small cup. The tv options were also fairly priced for the options available."
Pros: "Great customer service.. Comfortable flight and smooth landing!"
Cons: "Paying for one check in bag..."
Pros: "First class seats were ok, economy were tolerable"
Cons: "Delayed 1hr45m from CUN to CHI 1hr was on the tarmac (really?). Had last seats that don't recline. On the way down we were first class and the processed chicken with rice was bad, also delayed an hour from ORD to MEX. TV did not work in economy, none in first. No power outlets in either flight. Maybe I'm done with united?"
Pros: "Crew- very efficient on the ground andon the air"
Cons: "Inner flights no entertainment. Maybe dhould go wifi like LH"
Cons: "Easy for check-in and on time"
Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seats that were spacious enough. I like that on these flights they still at least give u one drink and a little snack. We got in early on both flights that's always a plus"
Cons: "I would like some kind of entertainment to make the time go by faster. What happened to having a movie play on a flight? That is about my only compaint."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Chicago."
Cons: "Plane got pretty warm and didn't cool down much during the flight. In-flight entertainment was poor; DirecTV was the only option and I believe there were some issues due to not being over US soil upon departure."
Cons: "Our flight home we couldn't land in Chicago due to storms and diverted to Madison. Sat on Tarmac 2 hours and some passengers from Madison allowed to end journey there. We had to wait for that approval and again had to wait for their luggage to be removed from the plane. My opinion is let them disembark but not the luggage. It was too long to be in that plane"
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Pros: "They had movies you could watch, for a price"
Cons: "I think united pays it's staff to be unnecessarily rude. It's so much rudeness that is almost ridiculous. Their demands, censure and dismissals of customers would make you think that you are their servants instead of customers."
Cons: "During my round trip my flight was delayed 4 times and canceled twice. On the first cancellation I had to get a hotel room because the next flight wasn't for 24 hours. Then, that flight was canceled but the booked me on another airlines. At first they were going to make me wait another 24 hours until I had told her that I had already did that once. The desk clerks were rude on every encounter."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."
Pros: "Pilots and some flight attendants were kind and friendly."
Cons: "On the return home, I was seated in the last row right next to the lavatory. I was bumped into at least 25 times by other passengers and flight attendants. I would suggest removing the aisle seat on both sides."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Cons: "Grant flight , i flew with my daughter in business class the service was very good , food was great , missed watching direct tv as the Olympic Games was going on , but over top notch"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Pros: "Was nice"
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Cons: "Everything. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Cons: "My connection to YYZ was cancelled and I was not even rebooked to the next flight. I needed to buy a ticket on Air Canada in order to get there. Every time I fly United I find myself asking "why in the hell am I flying United?""
Cons: "The seats on the flight from LAX to ORD are built for people who are under 6' tall. You need to disclose the fact that your seats cannot accomodate a person who is 6'2" and 200 lbs. or you will need to accept medical responsibility for the damage done to a persons musculoskeketal system."
Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."
Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy.. crumbs on seats debris on floors. Dirty arm rest and seat backs"
Cons: "VERY UPSET THAT MY FLIGHT WAS DELAYED AND I MISSED MY CONNECTION AS WELL AS MY LUGGAGE DID NOT ARRIVE IN LONDON UNTIL YESTERDAY-June 18 after leaving Oklahoma to London on June 14 also my luggage was damaged when it was finally delivered here in London... Broken wheel and zipper!!! I also had to go out and buy a pair of pants, shirt, socks, underwear and a jacket for meetings on Thursday and Friday."
Pros: "I havd to buy a whole new flight. from mechanical errors. it was horrible. I have no help"
Cons: "Held up at check in because of understaffing. Long TSA line. When we finally got to gate wouldn't let us board. Then agent was extremely rude about putting us on a different flight. Have always flown Delta and am sorry I ever strayed. It will never happen again."
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
Pros: "I did not like anything. Please people don't book through kayak. Scam website"
Cons: "Flight delayed. Stayed at airport for more than 2 hours. Baggage lost."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Pros: "Easy flight"
Cons: "Very bumpy!"
Cons: "on the way there we had TV. On the way back we had to take a different route (which added more time for the trip)and we did have a TV on the head rest or even movie showing. Also one snack that has three crackers isn't worth handing out. It would be nice to be able to enjoy the snack."
Cons: "Have electric outlets, seats too tight, have beverage service"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence"
Cons: "Boarding timeliness and process was bad."
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 service was amazing. The staff were friendly and quick to answer my concerns."
Cons: "Perhaps very light snacks and free water. Just the basics all other extras passengers can pay for themselves, but a light snack and refreshment is a kind welcoming gesture."
Cons: "The seats cannot recline and they won't even give a glass of water. I had to pay adittional 60usd for the documented baggage eventhough when I bought the ticket I filtered my search with flights with the documented bag included!!"
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."
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."
Pros: "nothing of the flying company I liked the bags have cost, the snaks also have terrible cost company I do not return to travel by volaris"
Cons: "nothing of the flying company I liked the bags have cost, the snaks also have terrible cost company I do not return to travel by volaris"
Cons: "No TSA Pre Dirty plane Rude staff"
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "This airline needs to be shut down please, if you’re over 5’4 it’s not for you. Seats are hard and uncomfortable, they are never on time with anything. The bilingual representatives just stare at you when you ask something in English. You’re charged $25 us if you’re 1pound over the 22 lb limit."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Really unconfortable plane and flight hostess weren’t able to deal with situations."
Pros: "Nothing. Literally nothing positive."
Cons: "They charge for everything. Even if your luggage overweight is 0,2 kg."
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"
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."
Cons: "Tried to pre check a day before the flight using Volaris app and wasn't able to complete the process, as the app was timing out and it was forcing me to buy a seat in the plan, which I wasn't interested in. It seems to me that the airline is trying to nickel and dime you in every opportunity they have as they wanted to charge us 50 USD extra as our carry on luggage was under the 22 LB restriction but our backpack added 2 pounds. I have never seen an airline that is weighting each and every passengers backs and purses during the boarding process to see how much more money they can get per flight. Also, I found it kind of funny that after take off the flight attendants were selling the empty seats in the front which didn't had more leg room (not first class) but were just closer to the cabin. You are already charging for sodas, CAN YOU JUST STOP THERE?"
Cons: "We had to pay $150 I’m extra charges for our luggage and carry-on."
Cons: "It was very delayed and they gave very inaqurate information about it"
Pros: "everything went well from check-in to the flight crew to getting a taxi."

Cons: "Refund or credit"

Pros: "Enogh room to move to an extra seat"
Cons: "Flight attendent was sassy"
Pros: "Everything was ok."
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."
Pros: "Quick and relatively cheap."
Cons: "It was too cold."
Cons: "The baggage never arrived and the customer service is beyond terrible"
Cons: "It was late"
Pros: "The airfare is cheap but they nickle and dime you for everything else. I paid 30 dollars for 1.4 Kg above the set weight for the cabin carry-on yes they weighed my purse and carry on bag. But, my regular luggage was 5KG below the allowed rate. And they attached luggage tags them. They were charging about $5 dollars if you did not print out your boarding pass. I couldn’t because their website was inaccessible. It kept kicking you off. You couldn’t update yard your passapprt number Air attendants waited for a half hour before arrival for food service. And then they rushed you through it because they were yapping away during the flight and we were landing."
Cons: "NONE OF IT IT WAS AWFUL.!!!!"
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."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed and the personal was terrible goving information or any solution"
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: "Volaris has good pricing and is mostly always on time"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and was not organized. They lined everyone up to check documents and then just left us standing in line for half an hour until boarding."
Cons: "El abordaje en La Paz, fue eterno, súper lento ."
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: "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."
