Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "They wouldn't give me a seat until I arrived at the gate, even though I checked in the day before. All entertainment, you had to pay for, even regular cable channels, which every other airline I've been on gives you for free. Food was fine - they were out of a lot of the options. Free snack was worse than other airlines I've been on recently. No other amenities such as chargers at the seat."

Pros: "Pilot landed well in crappy weather and I didn't die."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very fast at getting our drinks and snacks delivered - especially for a 44 minute flight! She was also very friendly."

Cons: "I find most United flights are late."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight with no food or entertainment. Who does that?"
Pros: "They got me there"

Cons: "all those empty seats (20-30) enco plus Still they WON'T upgrade anyone How about some good will and positive press for a change ! They wanted $69 each extra to sit with husband ."
Pros: "Flights were OK"
Cons: "Due to the more than two hours held up in customs and immigration I missed my connection to Redding. Plus it took me half an hour to get to the domestic gate. So you booked me on flights where I needed a minimum of 3 hours between flights and you only allowed me two. I spent a freezing night at the gate blasted by a/c and vitriolic CNN in extreme discomfort waiting for my early morning flight. (Security ziplocked my bag and I was unable to access a sweater). Nightmare!"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets 3 months in advance, when I get ready to start boarding, they tell me and my wife that the plane is full and we didn't get seats together."
Pros: "Waited 2 hrs for a plane"
Pros: "Very comfortable and professional crew"
Cons: "Customs was s l o w but overt all great"
Pros: "everything was fine"
Cons: "1/3 of a soda can for a drink? Just give the clients a can for heaven's sake No food on this flight... but we had time for a snack"
Pros: "Quick boarding and unboarding. Great flight attendants"
Cons: "Snack mix could be much better quality and the quantity of new/current movies was slim"
Pros: "No problem at all"
Pros: "Large bottle of premium wine was nice"
Cons: "No hot food."
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 4 hours. Pilots kept us in the plane before take off for an hour. They barely informed us even when we were experiencing turbulence and flight attendants were not very attentive to us during the flight."
Pros: "They were an hour delayed leaving Puerto Vallarta. Then I got to SF and they lost my back. I almost missed my connection to SD and had sprint across the airport just to make my flight. Guess we'll sreally what happens when I get my bag.."
Pros: "Newer plane. In flight entertainment via your phone or tablet"
Cons: "Final boarding call was the earliest I've ever experienced. 30 minutes before takeoff"
Pros: "I liked that going from Puerto Vallarta to LAX was non stop; free chex style mix and drinks"
Cons: "The boarding was so disorganized; boarding another plane within 15 minutes at gate next to ours; had to sit on floor to rest; going on bus out to plane would have been better if there was a way to make it single file, and not close to another boarding plane. Boarding groups make it disorganized--perhaps it would make more sense to board from back, but I am guessing it is done by boarding group for those who insist on taking large bags onboard to avoid the fee. By the way, tax on the $25.00 per bag charge????"
Pros: "Everything when they pretty much as planned. Plane was on time, the crew was courteous"
Cons: "Flying is just the low of a trip to Mexico. Seating is cramped. Security lines were long. When we finally got to the gate for our connecting flight to Mpls. There was no plane it was delayed about half an hour. No biggie just the way it is traveling during the winter holiday season"
Pros: "Boarding was OK, but only because we happened to be first in Group 2. Airlines STILL haven't figured out how to board reasonably efficiently. Having to fight your way to the back is NOT reasonably efficient. Alaska boards from the back row towards the front which is much more reasonable."
Cons: "The seats are set too close together. I am not tall, but I had only about 1.5 inches of knee room. The armrests are uncomfortable. The seats lack padding. Many screens didn't work. The controls for the screens are placed exactly where one's elbow rests, so you are guaranteed to change channels inadvertently. The seats, because they are so close to each other, don't recline much. All in all, it was an uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Waited in the customer service line for 3+ hours just to not be helped. Had to rent a car for more money than I spent on my round trip ticket without reimbursement. United employees give you the run around so they don't have to deal with you anymore and none of them are on the same page. Definately lost a loyal customer after this nightmare of an experience."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Tight seating and having to pay for a movie on a short flight."
Pros: "Flight arrived about 20 min early. Crew kept us updated on turbulence. Crew followed up for additional drinks/refills."
Cons: "Audio jack not working, so couldn't enjoy in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Patient flight crew"
Cons: "Waited for CFO for 20 min past departure time and there were 3 CFO onboard in general seating"
Pros: "Had more leg room and comfortable seats than our flight from esst coast. Food and entertainment are not applicabke due ti short flight duration."
Cons: "Didn't use. Had to reschedule thru phoenix with aal"
Cons: "No complementary entertainment"
Pros: "Seating was spaced good"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Cons: "It's too bland and they charge you for your luggage. The ticket wasn't cheap to begin with."
Pros: "Crew was friendly & got us a late seat assignment together"
Cons: "Lack of meal on a 4 hour flight"
Cons: "The worst experience ever paid $466 each for our flight. Our seats were changed for whatever reason to the last row, we sat in back of plane it was very uncomfortable and we could not relax. Out of airlines control was a sick screaming toddler for 2 hrs of this flight in front of us."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Cons: "I got stuck in the back of the plane and I did not realize the seats had even less room back there."
Cons: "I didn't like being on the very last row."
Pros: "Overall a good flight with no problems at all."
Cons: "Entertainment is pricey."
Cons: "The person next to me was so overweight that I literally had half a seat to sit on. The armrest in between us was up when I arrived to my seat with a large woman spilling over into my seat and I had to lean over the whole flight towards the aisle which made for a short and uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "It was a little too warm"
Cons: "The airport reps were not at all helpful and my flight was changed to noon vs. The one I purchased."

Pros: "I love Mexico the people the food"
Cons: "El equipaje"
Pros: "The arriving time was the only good thing"

Cons: "My suitcase was damage when I pick it up"

Cons: "Never booking with this airline again."
Pros: "Getting my boarding pass was a hazel and the flight was delayed about an hour and a half. Seats were extremely uncomfortable and they practically didn't recline. Everything on board was sold and nothing was offered complimentary not even a cup of water."
Cons: "What could be improved is, being on time. The seats could also be a more comfortable with a bit more legroom, room to recline, and space between people. Seats felt like I was sitting on the other person's lap. A small drink should be complementary."
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: "a lot"
Cons: "I could not check in on my phone. I never received email or link to check in. I tried 4 times in the previous 24 hour period. Using the app wasn’t mentioned until on the plane. When we arrived at the gate, 45 prior to departure, we were initially told to wait until the boss was there. 15 minutes lat"
Pros: "Flight left on time! No hassle with carryon"
Cons: "I hate paying for water. Legroom was ridiculously short."
Pros: "Efficient boarding-very pleasant crew"
Cons: "I was harassed while waiting to board the plane saying I had to check my Carry on because there was no room above in the plane – I told the individual I had some expensive medical device and she stated that it didn’t matter – when I entered the plane I did find more than adequate space to put my bag"
Pros: "The flight was punctual."
Cons: "The crew was to loud and annoying. I got a window seat without a window and was not notified (Seat 30F). If there was mention of no window seat I would have purchased a window seat."
Cons: "Will never fly with this airline, volaris charged me $60.00 for normal check in bag."
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!!"
Cons: "Very bumpy flight"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Had to pay extra for a suitcase that was a couple of pounds above the 10 Kgs, and a small tube where I bring my fishing pole (paid as much as a large suitcasewhen it only weighted 1.2 lbs). In the previous flight they also charged us for printing the boarding passes (we we unable to do it online),"

Pros: "crew was friendly"

Cons: "It would be good to be able to charge my cell phone on board"
Pros: "Again, good time and no delays."
Cons: "Sitting in the first row was a bit difficult. Could not sleep, the crew made so much noise. My handbag had to be put in the bin, I asked for it to get my pen to fill a form out for immigration. Because I don't like to stand up while the plane is flying, I put it under my seat. One of the crew made a loud comment that I was hiding it. I did not appreciate that at all."
Pros: "All right"
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."

Cons: "seats had fairly limited legroom. but then again the price was inexpensive so i can't complain."
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: "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: "The fly was asking for money for mexican kids, that is not right"
Cons: "It was extremely delayed and the personal was terrible goving information or any solution"
