Pros: "while our flight was delayed, they kept us well-informed about what was happening and didn't leave us in the dark.

My 63 years old mother had her small size hand carrier, a travel tote on top (with her travel blanket and her medicine) and a crossbody passport size. They told her to put it in her tote!!! Only 2 items allows. ... In the plane she saw passengers carried way more than what that."

Cons: "no food, no entertainment, seemed like a pretty, seemed like an old plane judging from the interior"

Pros: "On time arrival despite two issues at the departure gate"

Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."

Pros: "tvs at every seat"

Pros: "trip was horrible. Very disrespectful and racist."
Cons: "Crew needs to take classes on discrimination"

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Good seat pitch in economy. Food and beverages included and tasted good surprisingly. Crew were helpful and efficient. Plenty of entertainment options for film, TV and music."
Cons: "Do not like the process of boarding by group number. Another way of squeezing money out of the consumer. Also causes chaos when trying to board. Seats too narrow in economy especially if your broad shouldered."

Cons: "I was flying with Air Canada. The UI for watching movies was not good, it had a hard time to respond to the inputs. It was also hard to move the videos forward to the part I needed. Plus, the audio wasn't working well with my own earphones."

Cons: "No Wi-Fi but swayback said Wi-Fi"

Pros: "Crewq"

Pros: "Staff was nice!"
Cons: "I didn't like the luggage restrictions associated with our tickets."

Pros: "Comfortable."

Cons: "On board service!!!!!"

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: "Nothing"
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."

Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."

Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front. The overhead bins were so small that they couldn't fit carry ons efficiently so everyone was scrambling for space, delaying the boarding process & heightening frustration & stress. Boarding process was also inefficient causing delays."

Pros: "Movies were ok."
Cons: "Openly rude, almost argumentative staff. I was afraid to talk back because the last thing I want is any accusation of bad behavior on an airplane. But if this were a restaurant, the customers would get up and leave without eating. I've never had this experience on China Airlines or Japan Air. I will never use UA again."

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: "Seat could not recline, voucher was only a small fraction of the ticket fare that I paid. This is a business class seat."

Cons: "Never made it to San Francisco because the first flight never got there! Ridiculous!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Over a hour late leaving San Francisco"

Cons: "Delayed departure, changed gate."

Pros: "It was my 4th plain ride in 4 days & the crew was great & the pilot had the best landing I've ever had."

Pros: "Noting"
Cons: "Back in the day United was the best .....wtfh ???? Delay after delay get it figured out United ....4 hours waiting what a joke ... Never had a problem with Alaska Should have never switched never again"

Pros: "My overall experience was excellent except for your new food policy. Meals should included! I am handicapped and asked for help boarding and getting to flights! I was helped by your caring and very curtitious staff! Thank you for your help."

Cons: "United lost one of our baggage"

Pros: "Como la gente me trató"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "I got safe and sound"
Cons: "Luggage policy $60 per checked luggage is extremely high, other than that at the México airport this airline do not pro use an international booth, so, make this a 90 minute lune with zero help from airline crew to even guide travelers, bad experience there, luggage damaged when came..... zero response from the airline. So in a nutshell is a very high priced airline with bad service"

Pros: "Super rude, starting from the check-in counter to security inspection to boarding the plane- every attendant we asked a question to or asked for assistance had no clue what to do or respond."
Cons: "Get better-qualified personnel."

Cons: "It was a little too warm"

Pros: "Need remplace the seats and need more space"

Pros: "On schedule A+, even ahead of schedule a few minutes."
Cons: "Very little legroom, not reclinable seats, no carry-on included, no snacks included for the 3+ hour flight. They should include more for the price."

Cons: "No more delayed because i flight every month and volaris delay"

Cons: "Giving food to passengers as it used to be."

Pros: "Literally nothing. The worst airline I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "Completely disorganized, no consideration for the elderly or infants. ALWAYS LATE! We had to be bussed to our plane and they kept up on the buss for 20 mins with no air It was so bad that one woman fainted on the bus!! Would never recommend this airline and I won’t be flying with them again."

Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."

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!!"

Cons: "Deliver bags"

Pros: "The crew was very knowledgeable and assertive in their commands."
Cons: "Planes are too small. There weren’t any TVs on them and all 4 of my flights ran late."

Cons: "No water on any flight. Terrible customer service. Will never fly with them again."

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: "Never booking with this airline again."

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: "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: "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."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the boarding was confusing and took a long time."

Pros: "Crew did there job very well. Seats were terrible like riding in a New York City bus. Shamful, this airlines has no respect for their paying customers. My knees were pushed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Fire, dismiss, out of hear the CEO who approved the cramped seating layout!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew- this airline is really making attempts for on time boarding on time landing and in increasing their customer service"
Cons: "For this type of airline-nothing"

Cons: "Asientos más blandos"

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: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding pass options and instructions confusing, I finally decided to get the boarding pass at Volaris airport counter instead.... I was charged another fee for the process."

Cons: "This flight was cancelled. They sent me an email asking me to call a phone number to get re-booked, but the number was unavailable for the two hours after the email was sent, and then when I finally got through later in the evening, I waited on hold for an hour, nobody picked up, and I eventually needed to move on with my life."

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."

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything ! That’s how bad it was."

Cons: "All the mosquitos that entered the plane upon boarding."

And they also charge extra because I didn’t have a boarding pass . Only the info that was sent to me on the phone. I wasn’t able to download any boarding pass through the website. Wasent to happy with that part. The flight was ok it was fast, but very small seating leg room"

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: "It was very delayed and they gave very inaqurate information about it"

Cons: "Everything was the worst experience ever"

Pros: "everything went well from check-in to the flight crew to getting a taxi."

Cons: "Llegue 1 hora antes de mi vuelo y no me permitieron hacer mi check in porque “debería estar ahí 1.5 horas antes”. Me indicaron que debería comprar otro vuelo, ya que ellos no hacían cambios. Me tuve que cambiar de aerolínea y adquirir otro vuelo para el día siguiente."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. The flight was cancelled by Volaris at very short notice without offering an acceptable alternative. At great additional expense, I had to book an alternative flight with a different airline. What are you going to do to compensate me?"

Pros: "I only liked the price, the rest was awful"
Cons: "The system to check your baggage in wasn’t working and they had us standing in line for 40 min and when it finally started working, they couldn’t cope with so many (angry) customers."

Pros: "Quick and relatively cheap."
Cons: "It was too cold."

Cons: "The bad is the rules on the baggage"

Cons: "Over an hour and a half 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.!!!!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Bad service"

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"
