The price was excellent, but I'm not sure the cheaper fare was worth the stressful experience i tried unsuccessfully to call VivaAerobus from my hotel in Cabo, Mx. I tried 3 times, I was not able to reach a live representative. I wanted to upgrade to VIP, but could not do it. I arrived at the Cabo Aeroport and was in line to check in at 10:30 AM for my 1:30 PM flight #3155. Viva check-in personnel did not arrive until 11:30, and I did not check my bags until 11:00. I'm 75 years old, won't stand in line for 15 minutes at a crowded restaurant, so, standing in line for 1.5 hours was a bummer. My flight was delayed from 1:30 PM to 4:05. Viva employees were friendly and professional, the plane was good and the flight was very smooth. Naturally, I will tell my friends about the problems I had. James Pyle
2 hours late they charge me for my 16kg luggage $125 dollars and also before that I pay $41 online for 15kg and they said I didn't pay
Cons: "Water at least. Recline seating"
Pros: "I had a goos seat the crew was courteugus/"
Cons: "The check in was.very slow only one person at the desck making it very stresfull for passangers. we had to hurry to the gate because nit. I will have more personel to expedite check in, also need to provide the paperwork requiere like the health declaration it was rewuiere to pass to boarding and there was no forms any were. Passangers had to scrable to find some. Running agains the clock because all the delay to check in. 2hrs on line is ecxesive."
Pros: "Crew, new plane"
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: "Quick, expedient checkin & boarding"
Pros: "We got VIP Boarding without choosing in advance."
Cons: "Very little legroom, seats were not reclinable at all, not a single snack included. Cheap."
Pros: "Able to fall asleep as soon as possible during my flight."
Cons: "For starters, when I checked in I was charged for a damn carry on!?!? Super unexpected expense, and in my opinion wrongfully executed. I was told that I had to pay for my carry on or else I could not board the plane. When I asked why, he said it was over the limit, I weighed it and then he said, u have to add the other small bag too. — THE OTHER SMALL BAG WAS A BAG FILLED WITH SOUVENIR ITEMS PURCHASED AT THEIR AIRPORT PRIOR TO ME CHECKING IN! I explained that and of course nothing happened. The viva aerobús person that ran the register is called Jose A. Carrizo #21 badge. 31/12/2021. - The problem is not the amount that I paid, but the fact that customers before me were not asked to pay, even though I could clearly read the numbers on the scale as they weighed it. My bag weighed 10 kg exactly. i weighed it when I packed it. And the other bag was a bag used to carry around souvenirs from the airport. I think this was a bad way to do business and I’m simply not happy about it."
Pros: "Todo puntual.y buen trato"
Cons: "Leaving on time would have been better"
Pros: "New planes, los cost, relatively on time"
Cons: "Checkin in, boarding, Seats, on board entertainment, food"

Cons: "Luggage delivery is still incredibly slow!! 20 mins for the first piece"
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: "Everything need to improve"
Cons: "Viva aerobus takes advantage of its passengers by charging last minutes for non-sense things"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Food and entertainment and leg space."
Pros: "Surprised by complimentary beverages and snacks (cookies or chips). Perhaps they were free because it was an international flight"
Cons: "Legroom was tight. Seats were wide enough but seat cushions were thin."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We ran 5 minutes late and were not allowed to board our flight because there was NO ONE at the ticket counter to check us in... And just fly is saying that we cannot use our return flight tickets, so we have wasted almost $1000.00 Unbelievably poor service at the point!"
Pros: "The crew at the front of the airplane were friendly"
Cons: "When sitting at the back of the plane there were some girls with 3 beer cans each playing loud music and it woke up my child. I asked the flight attendant to tell the women to turn down there music and she said no she couldn’t do that if I didn’t like it to tell them myself."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and willing to sevice us. Pilot was very kind also."
Cons: "Only a bit more smooth flying, but this is out of our control."

Pros: "The crew were considerate, helpful"
Cons: "Only junk food to purchase and it was a long flight"
Cons: "Great service, I really recommend. Un servicio muy bueno"
Pros: "Nothing They did not let me board the flight they closed and they did not reimburse me or help me in anything that bad experience"
Cons: "the staff has no idea of their work or their routes the truth and are arrogant"
Pros: "The crew was honestly great"
Cons: "I paid for a row 3 premium seat that was supposed to have more room. It was the least legroom I have ever experienced on a commercial 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"
Pros: "Everything was average. Nice new airplane though."
Cons: "They lost my bag on a single non stop flight. 60 minutes in baggage claim until someone showed up. They needed 24-72 hours to find it. No idea when they would get it to me. No compensation for the things I needed ok vacation while they look."
Cons: "On a 6 hour flight that was international and during dinner time they did not have any dinner food, only light snacks for purchase. No charging ports either."
Pros: "Did not let me change my ticket for a different time . Lost money missing flight"
Cons: "First class is pretty limited on food. The seats could be more comfortable considering the cost."
Pros: "Cheap and on time"
Cons: "Crew that didn't care and didn't greet passengers"
Pros: "Por favor mantener Los precious gracias"
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: "There was a gluten free option for snacks! Thanks!"
Cons: "We were delayed and there was no apology given. We missed our next flight because of the delay. Bummer."
Pros: "Nothing was nice. Delayed flight for 3 hours and never told us what was wrong or why was it delayed. They first said it was about 30-45 minutes late, then an hour, later, another hour and so on. They didn’t offer anything on board, not even a cup of water. I understand they want to make profit and sell snacks and drinks, but come on, charge you for water!? Seriously?!"
Cons: "NOTHING! I rather pay $100 more in an airline that has great CUSTOMER SERVICE and that in addition for not giving me a straight answer about how delayed is my damn flight AND taking one fu****ng hour to put the luggage in the carousel for the passengers! I hope they go out of business!!!!!! I know they lost mine and my whole family!"
Cons: "Paid for infant in seat not in lap and we had to hold the baby as they refused to give us a seat"
Pros: "It’s a low cost airline so you cannot expect anytjing to be good."
Cons: "We have a delay on the take Of. The boarding was very slow and we were directly under a 32 C sun."
Pros: "We got to the airport and the lady that helped us add an extra bag was amazing trying her hardest to make it the cheesesteak possible. She weighed and re weighed our bags until we had the cheapest option. We ended up having to pay for 1bag upgrade (2-55lbs) that was 75$ Then the flight it’s self the flight attendants were every nice and tried to wander any questions I had. Chips were stale. Comfort of the flight was no worse than any other flight I’ve been on."
Cons: "I will not book with kiwi.com EVER again because they messed up my baggage. I originally wanted 3-55lb bags but bought 5-33lb bags when I enquirer about upgrading to 3-55lb bags they ended up miss understanding my wishes and took away 2bags and I still only had 33lbs per bag... by then it was to close to the date we were leaving so they couldn’t fix it and I was told I wasn’t going to get a refund... and that I would have to buy my baggage upgrade at the airport. I could try but it wasn’t likely."
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: "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: "On time and clean"
Cons: "Not friendly"
Cons: "They never told us the flight would be delayed. I only found out by chance! Poor communication between airline and airport."
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."
Pésimo servicio y actitud de sobrecargo. Parece que no han entendido que trabajar en una empresa de servicio implica necesariamente una actitud positiva. Confrontar al pasajero siempre traerá consecuencias negativas. Imponer en lugar de explicar para convencer, es verdaderamente innecesario e implica un enfrentamiento y sobretodo la sensación de abuso de la autoridad conferida. “El que no vive para servir, no sirve para vivir”
Fresh food for sale, not everyone likes chips and coke. Seat mechanisms not working,
The staff provides a good service. The problem is the airport and the company it’s self
Improve the boarding process. The staff needs more training.
Pros: "Como la gente me trató"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Follow the rules "Social Distance" The flight was completely full. People sitting 3 in a row. We felt very unconfortable"
Pros: "I like everything about it"
Cons: "Hand sanitizer and temp check at gate. I watched a crew member pick her nose."
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."
Cons: "Very little leg room"
Cons: "I was flying with my husband and 3 you. Children and couldn’t sit together. I was not told the high luggage charges and that I could register before for a cheaper rate. The lines to check in were over 1 hour and 20 minutes wait. The flight attendants do not speak English so could not communicate or help me at all."
Pros: "The passengers sitting by me were very helpful. They put my carryon on the overhead rack for departure and arrival. The handicapped attendant was excellent when I arrived in Cancun and stayed with me until my transfer was found."
Cons: "I have traveled several times annually with Volaris for at last 13 years and this is the first time the service was so bad, virtually no service was offered at any time. Everything seemed disorganized. No food was offered or even a glass of water. I am 86 years old and travel handicapped all over the world with excellent service. I was shocked that I as dumped in a seat at the Volaris gate from the wheel chair by the attendant; and, who never returned to help me board the plane. I made the mistake of tipping him well. No ramp was available and I had to beg for help with my carryon as I have to hold on with both hands to go up the stairs. Cancun’s attendant for handicapped was much better and truly helped me and stayed with me until my transfer was found. Tijuana’s airport service was horrible."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "The prices for the flights are deceptive. You pay extra for EVERYTHING! Seat assignment, drinks, luggage, additional weight for luggage I’ve 22 lbs. a real ripoff compared to other airlines. Plus, they wouldn’t give us boarding passes for the leg from Guadalajara to Oaxaca in Oakland so we missed that flight and had to buy tickets on another airline."
Pros: "Nothing. This is like the 3rd time I fly with this airline and it’s always something."
Cons: "Not having us sitting for 40 minutes because they arrived early and we couldn’t get out. If they get there early it should be something good for everyone but it’s actually the worst."
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "Polaris told passengers to arrive at the Morelia airport 3 hours before departure, which for a 6:20am flight meant 3:20am. Many passengers arrived a little before that time, and there were no Volaris representatives available to answer questions or even a clear area in which to form a queue."
Pros: "It was awful"
Cons: "The airline needs to change and advance it was awful uncomfortable and miserable"
Pros: "good crew"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable- no padding!!!"
Cons: "Never booking with this airline again."
Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "We had a bad experience with one of the seats. It was totally in a bad condition. The seat was destroyed, totally uncomfortable. It is a shame to pay so much for flights and receive this kind of "standard" in an airplane."
Pros: "that the staff if they are kind people not like those of the counter in Cancun who were arrogant"
Cons: "in putting capable people to solve situations or problems of arrears"
Pros: "The flight was punctual."

Pros: "Good basic airline ALWAYS reserve your seat ahead of time"
Cons: "Softer seats more like cement"
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "They don’t tell you about they might take your baggage when you have your boarding suitcase and they made me to put it down saying there is no more space. But if you pay $100 pesos then magically the space appears in the upper place of the plane. They don’t put any of these on the page and we fight"
Cons: "Everything they over charge on everything and they forgot to send our luggage so I had to wait till the next flight to get my luggage to get are boarding tickets the wanted to charge us $7 dollars for each person and for each luggage they charge us $50 dollars per when it should of been $26 dollars"
Cons: "That they could wait for me i lost the flight"
Pros: "On time-efficient"
Cons: "Asientos más blandos"
Pros: "On time due to excessive scheduled flight times"

Pros: "On time, clean and fairly new aircraft"
Cons: "Entertainment, food choices on board, boarding staff"
Cons: "I lost my connection because my first flight was delayed. It would be amazing if Kiwi.com would refund my unused flight Cancun-Chicago. I paid for a checked bag with Frontier, they didn't let me in the gate because I arrived 10 minutes later and I didn't get my money back for my luggage."
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "no entertainment choices offered - RADIO OR VIDEO."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "They force to choose seats (with extra charge), they charge for kids, for stroller, for baby package, for check-in in gate, for carry-on, for lougage, don't breathe too much air they might charge you extra."

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"
Pros: "I liked nothing, literally nothing."
Cons: "Between almost making us miss the flight because they couldn’t identify or scan the boarding passes THEY printed out (which were just little stickers on the back of our passports with no information), the flight was over 45 mins late! Additionally, the pilot said it was flight 911 to Los Angeles and then laughed and corrected himself to flight 900 - are you serious? Not a joke."
Pros: "The flight was on-time. The plane was clean, the toilets were clean."
Cons: "The Food service was very slow, we didn't have enough time to eat. We got seats with no window, it was uncomfortable. Not enough space to strech the legs."
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: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
Cons: "Super mala, organización, aviones pequeños"
Cons: "We had to pay $150 I’m extra charges for our luggage and carry-on."
Pros: "Overall flight journey was good and on time"
Cons: "The ground staff before we could do our boarding did not allow us to get to the counter even when informed that we had done a web check in... But she was insisting us to pay for the checkin fees to collect our boarding passses which was not professional"
Pros: "Well received and very helpful during check-in of luggage."
Cons: "They changed the boarding gate and i missed the announcement."
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.!!!!"
Pros: "Comfort was ok"
Cons: "No free snacks or Water."
Pros: "Everything was so easy - park on US side and just walk across bridge - flight was on time leaving and got in early both ways. Getting back into US was breeze"
