Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing about boarding"
Cons: "After being the only person pulled out of line for my carryon and myself to be checked at the boarding gate, I asked a simple question to the lady who profiled me, “what made you profile me for this additional security check out of hundreds of passengers here, I’d like to know”. I was met with such rude behavior which I never encountered with any airline before. Not only was her attitude rude, she couldn’t answer my question and Aeromexico didn’t bother to get someone fluent in English to answer me. Notice I wasn’t refusing the security check; it’s just that they were rude, cold and made me feel like a criminal while checking me. They need to improve their system for security checks at the boarding gate. I don’t understand why I had to be checked further bc they already check every passenger before entering the gates and boarding area. I still don’t know the answer to my question. The lady’s attitude embarrassed me and ruined my experience. Aeromexico should retrain their staff and make them realize it’s bc of us they have a job and they should be serving us with proper customer service and have their attitudes in check. Because I have every right to ask that question and will continue to do so! I forgot the lady’s name..but would be happy if my msg got taken seriously and the lady made aware.."
Cons: "We waiting for 45 minutes on the run way because was not a corridor ready to depart we are number 8 on line. Was not entertainment available the system was down no music, no movies, no nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very kindly all the time, the on board entertainment is modern"
Cons: "Boarding process. The Zone lines are formed a very long time before boarding really begins. Why?"
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses were incredibly friendly, making up for the over-salted food and cramped quarters in economy."
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: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Pros: "good service!"
Cons: "both flights were delayed."
Pros: "Service and complimentary at-seat entertainment."
Cons: "There is a $25 checked bag fee for the first bag."
Pros: "Everyone who worked on this trip was very friendly and helpful. They all handled the high pressure and busy nature of the job with excellent professionalism."
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Pros: "Overall the flights went smoothly"
Cons: "Check in process was very slow and totally disorganized. It happened both leaving and returning. Took one hour to checkin in Orlando and about the same when leaving Mexico City. Could do with some major improvements here....."
Pros: "The stewardesses were hotties with very cute outfits. The chars were fairly comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"
Pros: "I like the non stop flight."
Cons: "I honestly don't see the point in having so many terminals to check in. I had my reservation code I was even able to pay for my bag and wouldn't print out the boarding pass so I had to go to the assistance counter. There was one one person helping out with this issue and took me close to 30 mins to be able to get a boarding pass"
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"
Pros: "Seating comfort, crew"
Cons: "Boarding but this is typical of Mex city airport / chaotic is the norm there flight was good"
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."
Pros: "On time, comfortable"
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."
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 service and no delayed flight even through the holiday rush."
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: "United was great."
Cons: "DCA is a total disaster. Avoid the airport at all costs. The metro is shut down and everyone is competing for very expensive cabs and ride share. Terrible. Worth it to go to Dulles."

Cons: "I was traveled no with my wife and my son to Des Moines andI documented our 3 bags in Mexico City and "the first surprise" was that they charged in Mexico n I he front desk about $27 USD per bag...it seemed that the bags were also passengers and " needed to pay"... The big other surprise was when we got to Des Moines and realized all the bags were opened!...my wife's jewelry was stolen!!!! UNITED AIRLINES SUCK!!!!!"
Cons: "I am furious with Kayak. I bought online 1105 am flight and it switched me without permission. When I arrived at airport and realized what happened I had no choice but to pay 150 USD to return it to my original purchase. Kayak owes me 150 USD. Thank You"
Pros: "The crew was friendly & responsive. The snack options were good & I got the whole can of Ginger Ale, without asking! Overall, a pleasant experience."

UA staff also, at the outset of the flight, attempted to confiscate all food and drink items from passengers, so that UA could immediately sell food and drink items to passengers."
Cons: "The seat cushions were in terrible condition!!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the video entertainment was top notch, bathrooms were very roomy compared to other planes and flight attendants were nice to us.

Pros: "I really had been a good experience with you I don't really had that much to complaint, the only personal I will re-trained to be more polite and understanding will be the people's or employees who make us as loyal costumer to have a hard time for a few onces. They need to be a little more understanding not just to judge everybody equally for who we are traveling to"
Cons: "Being treated like I was during somethings wrong just because a had a few onces on my luggage and I was traveling to a third word country"
Pros: "Right on time"
Cons: "As an international traveler I find it annoying to have to pay for my bags on an internal domestic flight. There should be some reciprocation with partner airlines to cover baggage if coming from international to domestic flights"

Cons: "Crew is so aggressive and unattentive that you end up thinking United is aiming for this kind of service on purpose."

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: "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: "I love Mexico the people the food"

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."
Cons: "Volaris charged $36 for 1lb over in my carry on luggage."
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: "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"

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."
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"
Pros: "Everything was perfect but the price"
Cons: "Communication! Flight was delays over 5 hours. The flight changed from delayed to on time twice throughout the day."

Cons: "These guys are doing well!!!"
Cons: "Make the luggage policy and fees more clear, they charged me 50$ for no good reason. Smallest seats I've ever had in my life."
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"
Cons: "3 hours late"
Pros: "New planes, los cost, relatively on time"
Cons: "Checkin in, boarding, Seats, on board entertainment, food"
Cons: "I was early to aborde and I wasn’t allow to check in due to apprently being late"
Cons: "seats don't even recline"
Pros: "I didn’t get chance to flight . They changed departure time . At the first time when I showed up at my gate 17A , 50 minutes before the departure there was a lot of people waiting for flight to Hermosillo , not the Cancun. ( wasn’t any information about Cancun flight on information display) When I asked crew from desk about my flight to Cancun they told that I need to wait for announcement . I left for 20 minutes , when back 20 minutes before my departure time on my gate crew told me that my flight it’s gone. I didn’t hear any announcement about it. They didn’t change me for another flight , only the told me that they can change my ticket for the flight which is 18 hours later."

Cons: "They didn’t let me board."
Cons: "Not good organization while boarding, too much turbulence, very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "We were delayed but they didn't tell us till 45mins before the flight was scheduled to depart. Other than that everything else was good"
Pros: "Flight on time. Smooth flight"
Cons: "This airline is always delayed and it’s always too much. This time was 1:30 hours late and we were standing 30 min more in the destination. So. This airline is the worst"
Cons: "This airline is always delayed. The seats are too small"
Cons: "It was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Cheap and on time"
Cons: "Crew that didn't care and didn't greet passengers"
Cons: "A 5 hour delay and absolut nothing of info about it from the crew. Really really shitty. No food. No water. No medical service for a sick baby about 1.3 years old. This is the worst experience ever."
Cons: "Delays are understandable but the messaging was the problem, staff created chaos by handing out limited incorrect information. This Encouraged passengers to overcrowd the information booths. Plus a two hour wait on the tarmac,horrible!!"
Pros: "Normal flight"
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."
Pros: "Good, friendly staff. Quick flight as far as in the air."
Cons: "3 hour delay, come on... tight fit. Everything else made it uncomfortable but it was a 98$flight so what are ya gonna do?"
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"
Cons: "They never told us the flight would be delayed. I only found out by chance! Poor communication between airline and airport."
Pros: "Everything works"
Pros: "It arrived"
Cons: "No email to check in, unclear website, forced to pay 8 dollars to check online because I hadnt been assigned a seat and only options were exit row, had to pay 30 dollars to board because they never made the carry on allowance clear and my bag was 2 k over. Would not recommend."
Cons: "Horrible service"
Pros: "Don't leave me abord lost my flight and my money"
Cons: "That airline sucks"
Cons: "Nos bajaron del avión por falla en las llantas y 2 horas de retraso"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "I like that southwest flew out of the same terminal Bc after the nightmares I walked over and happily paid full price for Southwest."
Cons: "2 agents for 300 bags in the same time window is not only unexpectable but poor customer service. Several people including 6 people in wheelchairs were deeply effected by this event not to mention. 100 of passagers without a answers. There was no staff at the 3 gates ! Even before the planes were scheduled to take off."
Pros: "The price is good"
Cons: "I don’t like the chairs"
Pros: "Really helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Very small (smaller than my kindle) tray tables. It was a very loud plane as well"
Pros: "Ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No drink service, no entertainment, very expensive. Never again"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "No in flight snacks, entertainment, and seats were not very comfortable."
Cons: "Staff was unpleasant. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The man in the seat next to me decided he didn't want to sit by me, so I had more room to spread out."
Cons: "At the gate, after our flight had been delayed almost two hours, their was only one employee working. This extended our boarding time considerably. One of Frontier's main selling points is that they spend less time on the ground, allowing for them to charge less for airfare. Just not my best experience flying."
Pros: "I like that the flight was nonstop early morning and late evening. That's it!"
Cons: "I hate all the fees. It is a wonder Frontier airlines is not charging to breathe their air, I hate that! The seats are too tight, and the airplanes are old."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly. I feel like they put a lot of focus on ensuring they're friendly, responsive and have a nice sense of humor to make up for their airlines terrible timing and equipment."
Cons: "This was my return flight on Frontier and although not as bad as my first still pretty horrible. Upon arriving at the COS airport we were greeted by...no one at check in. We were told they were on "lunch" and we couldn't drop our bags until they finished. There was at least 15 people waiting on Frontier reps to show up and check us in. After that time suck flight was delayed again. Plane was filthy. After looking over the total for the flight it really doesn't save you any money after all the extra fees and poor service. I'll pay more to fly on an airline that shows up."
Pros: "Smooth flight very pleasant crew."
Cons: "My seat did not recline and the person in front of me did get to recline which made my space even smaller...."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and not organized. Seats extremely uncomfortable. Flight was freezing the entire time. Having to pay additional for every single additional bag brought on board."
Cons: "Frontier is a bait and switch operation. They offer discount fares and when you get to ticketing you discover that they charge $40 for checked bags and $45 for carry on bags!!! I can understand the checked baggage fee only if it was made known prior to purchase but charging more for carry on bags. Also, the staff at the ticketing counter are rude and obviously selected and trained to make sure that they get every penny of their ruthless money. I have flown my first and only flight with Frontier and will never do so again."
Pros: "Crew were arguing with passengers over seating arrangements and when it came time to throw out garbage at the end they completely ignored half of the rows. Even after the lady next to me yelling to get their attention."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Seats were awful no room my husband is 6'6 and seats don't recline at all.. We took a red eye and had to try and sleep sitting straight up.. No entertainment not even music"
Pros: "We got to destination 30 mins ahead of time."
Cons: "No leg room and the seats don't recline. No free snacks or drinks. Not even water."
Pros: "Good price; easy to book; easy boarding; very punctual (everything on time)."
Cons: "Plane was very uncomfortable and cramped; Charged extra for everything (I thought they would ask for more money for carrying my wallet and a pocket comb.). Traveled as a couple; had to pay extra to insure that we could sit together. Are you kidding???"
Pros: "the flight was on time both ways."
Cons: "excessive bag fees. non reclining chairs. having to pay for soft drinks and snacks. LONG loudspeaker announcement trying to sell us their credit card deal. No TV or media available."
Pros: "Arrived early - fun crew."
Cons: "Seats don't recline - slow de- boarding process."
Cons: "Lots of screaming children, but I had to fly to Orlando."
Pros: "Hummm, landed safely! I do like that "carry on" people have to pay extra."
Cons: "No reclining seats even after paying an extra $50 for the good seats (and to ensure sitting by spouse). Cannot even get a glass of water without an extra charge."
Cons: "You charge extra for everything."
Pros: "I was impressed with the patient attitudes of the crew and the quick thinking to find a solution when we were stuck on the ground for two hours during the blizzard because of power outages that made us unable to finish fueling the plane. The quick turnaround of finding another solution to fuel (flying to an operational airport with the fuel we had), and getting the alternate flight plan to Kansas written and approved was very impressive, and saved my trip."
Cons: "The worse service ever; Would not buy tickets from them again... You get what you paid for - Baggage and seating are extra fees"
Cons: "Another frontier flight delay due to illogical, unidentified "paper work.""
Pros: "Long Flight Delay Due to Weather, Strong Thunderstorms and Tornado warnings. Handled Delay well and boarded when appropriate."
Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 5 and a half hours due to a storm. Something Frontier had no control over. What they did have control over, however, was their communication, which was non-existent. People at the gate wouldn't tell passengers anything, and responded to questions with "I don't know." When one woman complained about the lack of communication, a Frontier worker told her dismissively that she could call the manager. We kept learning about the flight delays by watching the status board. The front gate workers wouldn't say anything, and most people were too worried about missing the flight to run and get something to eat."
Cons: "The flight attendant complaining about it being a 9 hour day . Slouching Over seats seemed to be dreading the day."
Pros: "Flight was fine, golf clubs made it OK."
Cons: "Be prepared to pay extra for EVERYTHING!"
Pros: "Base price. Plane seemed newer and was clean."
Cons: "Staff was a bit rude. Tray table was comically small though with absolutely no complimentary food or drink I suppose it doesn't matter. Extremely thin padding on seats making them quite uncomfortable. While the base fee is low, once you factor in all of the fees for check bags, carry on bags, snacks or a drink while on-board, and paying to guarantee you have seats together, you might as well just fly Southwest because Frontier will likely be no cheaper or just barely."
Pros: "The plane seem fairly new and the boarding was fairly smooth. The crew was calm and even patient from my perspective, considering they were handling mad costumers after a 3&1/2 hour delay on christmast day. I saw good will on this flight from the crew. Remember when the pilots use to show you the cockpit? Well this pilot did to a kid as he entered the plane. The kid and his father were very happy, expeessing how cool is was as they continue to board. That, was a nice gesture and resulted in relaxing some people! The flight was fairly quick once we were in the air. Tha been said. This flight did t allow for me to rate entertaiment and food since it was too short for the crew to set that up."
Cons: "Well obviously the massive delayed! I, like many arrived at the airport with enough hours ahead to take this flight so say 6-7am only to sit around until 12:00pm in order to depart. That alone is a fairly black mark. In addition, the gate kept been moving around. Of course there are other planes to arrive and that needs to be understood but the constant changing and moving to distant gates was a bit tough on some of us."
Cons: "It'd be nice if I could specify N/A for items that I didn't have, such as food and entertainment."
Pros: "The fare was reasonable. The flight was on time. Boarding was quick. The seats were ridiculously uncomfortable and would not recline. So small. Baggage policy is impossible. For passengers who did not check the website before the flight it was a surprise to be hit with a carry on baggage fee. The airline is only good for extremely short trips when you don't have to bring anything but a change of underwear."
Cons: "Took forever to get luggage off plane, then, my luggage wasn't there. They told me it didn't make it and they'd deliver. 20 min later, after I already waited an hour and a half since getting off the plane and had left she calls me and says its here and she'd be waiting on curb with my bag. She wasn't and when I got there she looked at me she had never seen me before. They've got complete morons working for them. Also in the luggage office they leave people's bags unattended so someone could easily steal. Wouldn't trust them with my stuff ever again."
Pros: "Had a great fight all around. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lines moved efficiently."
Cons: "I've used Frontier twice. Once for Thanksgiving week and once for Christmas week. Both times I had to wait 40-45 minutes to get my bag. The first time, the belt stopped working after already sitting and waiting 20 minutes for the the luggage to come to baggage claim. So myself and a large number of people had to wait an extra 20 minutes before someone decided to switch the our bags to a different belt. The second time there was no malfunction. Literally the entire plane and myself, who checked a bag, waited a total of 45 minutes before the first luggage appeared. Because I'm a considerate person, I prefer that my ride doesn't get a ticket or their vehicle towed for waiting outside for an extra 20-30 minutes or they waste their gas by circling around the airport until I finally say, "I have my bag." Mind you, this only seems to happen when I'm arriving to Orlando. I probably will be avoiding Frontier Airlines when picking my next flight."
Cons: "No reclining seats!"
Pros: "I liked that it was cheap, mainly because I was only there for a day and didn't have to pay for luggage. The staff seemed ok and everything else was normal."
Cons: "I didn't like how they basically charge for every single thing. They charge for checked bags, carry ons, the seat selection, and any kid of food or drink that's not water."
Cons: "It was unfair to Charged us $90 for the carry on"
Pros: "Well everything was going well for my family until we arrived at our gate and learned that our plane had been given away to another delayed late turning our 6:10pm departure into a 1am departure. Don't get me wrong I do feel bad for those poor people who were delayed on the other flight, but does it make sense to make an additional 200 or so people late to their destination? You don't have any other plane or pilots in your fleet in case this problem occurs. We were expecting to get into our hotel at 9:30pm. It's 4:15am and we're still not there. Terrible."
Pros: "always professional"
Cons: "I had to book a secondary flight, my bother DIED unexpectedly, and there was business... not compassion thrown at me. I completely understand business, but geez???????"
Pros: "Can't beat their price even if I had to pay for carry on. It was on time, crew was nice and plane not too bad. If you are on a budget and the journey is what counts it's excellent."
Cons: "They should at least give free water lol"
Pros: "The cost, the ease of booking, everyone was extremely nice. The 'Pilot' or who ever keeps us updated on flying & weather conditions had a great sense of humor and kept us entertained. The plane was clean & looked brand new. It was cheaper and easier to check a bag than mess with a carry on, if you set it up when you purchase your tickets. I had purchased a soda before boarding but the gave me a glass of ice at no charge (some places charge for the cup). No extra cost for seating unless you want a specific seat. We definitely plan on flying more & recommending it to family & friends. Plus it's cheaper than driving"
Cons: "Tight quarters, the seats are pretty much fitted, prob not very comfortable for above average size individuals."
Pros: "Really good experience"
Pros: "Overall good. 32 minute wait for luggage. Seemed like a long time. 45 minutes from when we departed. Took a while just to get off plane that I am not counting."
Pros: "Everyone were really nice. The service was good."
Cons: "I didn't like the following fact. I was charged $35.00 for a carrying on bag. When the bag met all the requirements needed for a carry on. When other customers had larger bag and they were not charged. The bag was small enough to fit under the seat. I should be re-enburse the $35.00 I was charged. Thank you"
Pros: "The price was good. Considering it was Holiday time."
