Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Everything was fine excellent."
Cons: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Pésimo servicio de las aeromozas, golpeaban en el pasillo con el carro porque andaban corriendo con ese carro de comida malcriadas"
Cons: "Que hubiera un mejor manejo con el equipaje, extraviaron una maleta de mi familia."
Pros: "Crew amazing, airport security staff and procedures are preposterous, food crapy, layover way too long"
Cons: "In JFK, they asked to check in every single carry on. This is very inconvenient and adds time upon arrival. Considering that this is a late evening flight, the more you wait the later it gets. If this plane has not enough space they should use other plane"
Pros: "Quick entrance from JFK"
Cons: "Horrible terminal service will not fly ever again with aueromexico"
Pros: "La puntualidad, la amabilidad del personal y la comodidad"
Cons: "Cambian la sala de espera para el abordaje de el avion sin previo aviso. La comida no fue un plato completo, si no que solo fue un refrigerio"
Cons: "Took us one hour to taxi out to the runway."
Cons: "I’m still stuck in Mexico"
Cons: "With one hour to go, a man in my row in the AMPlus section (which costs extra for a bit more comfort in economy) was joined by his companion who started the flight in the back, the basic economy fare which does not cost extra.. I didn’t appreciate the fact that she got to sit up front without paying and that the AeroMexico crew did nothing to call her out or send her back. The lesson: Don’t pay the extra money for AM Plus. Just wait until no one is watching and move up front. No one cares—except your fellow passengers who paid for the added comfort."
Cons: "It was an Aeromexico flight when I tried to check in via my app it dint let me it meme me go to delta finally I have to call them to do the check in"
Pros: "Un avión en buen estado con buena variedad de Filmes"

Cons: "Having to check in my carry-on because the plane is full. Lost a meeting because I had to wait for my bag at my final destination."
Pros: "Food was good. In flight crew was nice."
Cons: "Food portion was slightly too small. Boarding crew (not on flight but in the terminal) was NOT nice-- I had a garment bag that in past experience does not count as an additional carry on since it can be placed on top of carry-on in overhead bin. Boarding crew member insisted I was over the limit (when though at check-in, the staffer saw how many pieces I had and made no comment) and she insisted I had to check one item AND pay the baggage fee. But this was a problem only because it was a full flight, and I was being punished just because my seat was in a tow closer to the front and boarded later, therefore there was less room left in the overhead bins. Also seemed ridiculous to charge for the first checked bag, with most other reputable airlines, there is no fee for the first checked bag for international flights."

Announcements were not clear. Announcements for boarding and all other changes were made in Spanish and rarely in English. If announcements were made in English it was made by recording device which were not clear. Will not be choosing Aeromexico again!!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and we arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule which was a plus. Would definitely fly withy then again. Plus they offered inflight meals"
Cons: "4 h delay"
Cons: "Delayed flight, next time send the alert in time for people to stay put instead of waiting at the airport. And why keep your stupid vip seats empty and crowd people in the back in the middle of a pandemic. I hate volaris and I'll selling all my shares with them. Go vivaaerobus"

Cons: "Follow the rules "Social Distance" The flight was completely full. People sitting 3 in a row. We felt very unconfortable"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Leg space was a bit tight for a tall person so if you can get an exit row do it."

Cons: "Arrived at the gate at 12:05pm as we were in a different gate due to the airport screens being incorrect. The rule for boarding is that the flight closes 15 minutes before departure, which would have been 12:10. Omar Rivera, argued with us for minutes and did not let us board. Horrible service"
Cons: "Being timely"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight so I would have appreciated if the crew members refrain from super loud conversations right next to my seat (I was obviously trying to sleep as everyone else on the flight."
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: "Everything could be better."

Pros: "Service was great but asking for water should not be a paying matter. They want to charge you for everything."
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: "The Valaris staff were most helpful and courteous. The flight crew was professional and the airplane appeared be just fine."
Cons: "The lack of a check-in machine and the long lines at the check-in counter were annoying. Also the legroom in the plane was minimal."
Cons: "checking in process, Over one hour in line which. 2 people 1 regular bag $55 dollars. Pay for everything on the plane except water. Poor ventilation. Couldn;t even lay tray down without it sticking in my gut, I could go on. I fly quite a bit and this was probably the worst experience"
Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"
Pros: "Loved that there was food offers . We were so hungry. We had been awake for 24 hours an we hadn’t eaten for hours and hours ."
Cons: "I didnt Know there was a menu option. At start of flight no one mentioned there was a menu for food choice . I saw It after our meals were handed out . My kids got a sandwich that was Jalepeno style sauce . It was too spicy for them to eat. If i had Known by the flight attendants (by them re assuring i knew Of the spice on the sandwich ) or by being told ,about the menu earlier , I wouldnt Have ordered it . That’s the only negative thing to say . Cuz their sandwich was really spicy ."
Cons: "People were rude and inconsiderate of our age and ability to move on our own. Being threaten to tip or our tickets would be cancelled is bullshit!"

Cons: "Seat cushion had sunk in so it did not support me. I’m 135 lbs. space was cramped."
Pros: "Flight got dekayed, staff neber smiled, rude!!! And i have neber felt such tublences in my life time. Flight attebdants did not bother to say thank you or one smile but talk to others of their own i find it rude!!!! I asked fkr water, brought to me 10 min late and was not cold or fresh in a plastic cup???"
Pros: "Well received and very helpful during check-in of luggage."
Cons: "They changed the boarding gate and i missed the announcement."
Pros: "The flight was just fine"
Cons: "The main problem was that when I checked in online, I tried to add on more piece of luggage—for a total of 2 checked in. But the computer ended up totaling it as 3 pieces of luggage. There seemed to be no way to change this online. So I asked them to change it when I got to the airport, but they wouldn’t. What was done couldn’t be changed. Another issue I have is with this review questionnaire. They are questions for rating the food and entertainment which the airlines don’t provide anymore. These should be removed from the survey. They should, however, ask how was the process of making the reservation, check-in, and customer service in general. Both from the airline, and any third party service like kayak or kiwi. I’m not satisfied with kiwi as they were closed when I tried to call them. So I had to just fend for myself and spend money needlessly."
Pros: "Nothing nothing"
Cons: "They sold my ticket to someone else even though we were in line for 3:1/2 hrs no explenation just ignorance and they dont care i will be filling a complain with consumer rights its just not right why should they get away with corruption"
Pros: "They were on time and accepted my cabin luggage without charging me extra, even though it was slight over 10 kg."
Cons: "They had only food for sale in cash in Mexican pesos in an international flight."
Cons: "My luggage was opened and electronic items / gifts were stolen. I am upset because customer service never answered to resolve the problem."
Cons: "Delayed flight by 3 hr just 25dlls of compensation"
Pros: "Vacations food dancing and great time whit the family"
Cons: "Both flights on Avianca Airlines were cancelled due to their pilots strike. MEX to BOG and BOG to UIO were both cancelled. I had to buy another ticket with short notice on another airline. Cost me a lot of money because of the short notice."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Plane was uncomfortably warm"
