Pros: The crew was good. The seats fine.
Cons: The sana distancia was not respected in the airline.
Pros: Everything it was so fast and excellent
Cons: The food in the airplane
Pros: The airline manage to put me on an earlier connection to Mexico City, very appreciated
Cons: Plane seats are very uncomfortable, not enough space
Cons: AeroMexico offered a great service!
Pros: the good serice
Cons: better plan es
Pros: Crew amazing, food really good, I just had a better experience because the lack of leg room, my 3 years old was hitting the next seat so the lady totally ignorant and mediocre was arguing with me.
Cons: Change people seats when they are very picky
Pros: Crew pleasant & food good
Cons: Seats not very comfortable or adjustable
Pros: The crew was very helpful and attentive.
Cons: The flight was delayed.
Pros: The snacks
Cons: More snacks
Cons: Flight was delayed, it took very long boarding and getting off the plane. People was standing when plane still taxiing and crew didn’t do nothing.
Pros: Nothing. I couldn’t even fly. I arrived 1.5 hours early and chose a seat directly in front of the gate. And fell asleep accidentally. Woke up two minutes after plane took off. T
Cons: The staff said they called my name many times. I don’t believe this for a second. I am a light sleeper, especially at airports. I know international airports are busy places, but when a man is asleep right in front of the staff calling his name, you think maybe just maybe they would wake me and say “are you benjamin”. But they didn’t. Now I am forced to by a brand new round trip ticket. Immensely unhappy.
Cons: Delayed our flight and we missed our connection. They made us pick up our bags and wait overnight outside the terminal. It was cold (no doors). Only concrete slabs to sit on. It’s our honeymoon...no compensation given. Not even a blanket
Pros: We booked premier class and enjoyed the extra comfort. The first leg of the trip went well.
Cons: The second leg of our trip had a flight cancellation, so we got bumped out of premier class even though we had already paid for it. There was an 8-hour delay in Mexico City and the second leg of our trip was no-frills, so we have to go through Aeromexico's online process to get reimbursed.
Cons: All the announcements are in Spanish which makes it hard for everyone else to understand. Flight departure was delayed as well.
Cons: I love the service The workers there really helpful and friendly
Cons: We got premium economy seats but no priority boarding or priority bag drop as promised. Also, the entertainment system did not work.
Pros: The seats were reasonably comfortable and the legroom was decent.
Cons: It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake.
Pros: The staff at check-in were wonderful.
Cons: The upgrade to first class was $150 and definitely not worth it. I was disappointed in the experience and would not recommend. I was traveling with my mother to Mexico to celebrate her 60th birthday and was very excited to upgrade to kick off the celebration. We were offered a glass of water or orange juice after boarding; and when we requested a celebratory glass of champagne, we were denied. As in all other airlines first class participants are served anything they desire while the economy passengers board. It wasn’t until an hour into our flight that we were offered something again. At one point, I turned around and noticed that the first several rows of economy class already had their meals. Before first class. This is not something I would expect. I only fly economy class and was beyond excited to experience the first class amenities, only to feel extremely disappointed in the service by AeroMexico. At this time, I would like to request a refund on the upgrade.
Pros: The only 2 thing I liked was the flight was peaceful and the movies.
Cons: No me gusta como me trataron uando le pregunté a las aeromosas donde estaba el l baño contestan como enojadas o cuando pregunté si el jamón del sándwich era d puerco o d pavo Y me contesto de mala gana q no sabía con un tono molesto. o cuando pregunté si tenía q llenar la forma q dan antes d bajar el avión y me contestaban enojadas uno respondían a mi pregunta. Y no es la primera vez q me pasa siempre son haci. Deberían tener más tacto para tratar a los clientes y ser más amables. Gracias a nosotros los q viajamos en avión ellAs tienen trabajo.
Pros: The crew were great always ver polite and helpful having tv on flight makes people more relax I know I was
Cons: Everything was good my complain is about the rude passengers in the plane just cause u pay for a plane ticket it don’t mean it gives them a right to be rude with the crew
Cons: Never took that flight as I missed the connection. It is a shame how things are done. I had 1.30 min of layer. If it was organized properly I had way enough time to catch the plane but the immagration doesn't care about the time of your flight. No one helps you anywhere. Then I was sent from one place to another before finally finding someone who knew what to do. And course no apologies at any moment
Pros: arrived ahead of schedule
Cons: took an hour to taxi after landing no vegetarian options for food
Cons: Flight was scheduled to leave at 11:00 and was delayed an hour and a half. Changed the departure time 3 times within 1 hour.
Pros: The flight attendants were so friendly and happy.
Pros: man being able to watch movies makes all the difference!
Cons: SEats too small...but that's pretty much any airline.
Pros: The gate agents got me extra legroom in emergency row because i am very tall, at no extra charge. Airplanes were newer, very nice crew, on time.
Cons: The Mexico City transfer was weird, and inconvenient. You have to retrieve your luggage, go through Mexican immigration, recheck your bags, go through security again, and the layover was over 4 hours. You pay less, but it winds up being a very long, exhausting trip. I will take a US carrier from Quito to San Francisco, Reno or Vegas next time fir this reason alone.
Pros: costumer service
Cons: The way they operate now where you have to pay for checking luggage and that we depart 30 minutes late and Apparently Aeromexico is been having problems with the tickets they don’t work when you go to the scanner and you have to go back and print your boarding pass that’s a problem because you have to start back in the line
Pros: Food and drink offerings, the staff were professsional and courteous.
Cons: TSA was a disaster, which is no reflection on this carrier but that experience tainted the trip. The plane seating was not comfortable. The entertainment offering was dated and deficient. The food option was sandwich or no sandwich.
Pros: Efficient and friendly service.
Cons: There was a 5 hour delay which caused me to miss my connection. After standing in line for 3 hours, They did not get me the same day flight and put me on a Latam air flight and asked me to take the bus to terminal 1. When I spoke to the person on Latam air they said they don’t have a ticket for me and sent me back to terminal 2 via a bus where Aeromexico desks were. I stood in another line for 3 hours! Then they told me there is no flight and they will put me on the next day flight. However they did not provide any help or accommodation for the night I had to stay in Mexico which felt very very unsafe to me.
Pros: Everything specially the service
Cons: The sits were to close to next line and the sitting was so hard and flat as on a wood bench, almost no cushion.
Pros: When you connect out of Mexico City, the food is always fresher and more protein-rich. Yum!
Cons: The screens in the seat backs are a little dated and low-resolution.
Pros: Nothing. I will never fly this airline ever again. The movies were OK.
Cons: We got to the airport and turned out that our flight was delayed so much that we’d miss our connection but the crew at the counter was so incredibly unhelpful it was beyond frustrating. The customer service line was unreachable and basically there was no one to talk to. We’re stuck in Mexico City for a day.
Pros: On time flight, extremely efficient crew, comfortable seats, entertainment, meal, drinks.
Cons: Boarding, paid for upgrade but was second to last zone to board, leaving me to scramble for Room for carry on. Flight crew was friendly enough except for one, she seemed put off by everyone on board, but especially me. Lol. Basically threw the tray of food on my table and on the backside, pulled tray before I was done. She hopefully was having a bad day.
Cons: On my way to Lima I flew through Mexico City. It took over three hours to get through customs and caused me to get to my gate minutes before the flight closed its gate. For this reason I made note to upgrade my flight so I could be close to the front of the plane and get to customs as quickly as possible. Aeromexico made me check my bag which is the SAME bag I came down with. Same size, same Weight. Their reasoning for this was because they had a full flight, yet I had paid extra to upgrade in the first place and their policy states you can bring on one carry on to store in the overhead. I'll likely miss my connection due to this. I will never fly Aeromexico again.
Cons: Delays with immigration meant I missed my connecting flight to Tuxtla. They should allow people with connecting flights to go to the front of the line. Ridiculous system the way it is now.
Pros: It was a pleasant surprise to have snacks and drinks offered for free in this airline. The on-flight entertainment offers a pretty good selection for a wide variety of tastes. Good flight experience
Cons: Every thing
Pros: Courteous, professional, efficient. Good sense of humor!
Cons: How the gate lady was rude when asked a question. No personal entertainment system.
Pros: Smooth flight.
Cons: The flight from San Francisco to Mexico City was medicore. The plane smelled, the blankets smelled and the flight attendants were not that friendly.
Cons: The airplane look like it was from the 90's there were broken part of the airplane that were hold by tape - I am so surprised that Aeromexico has lower it services
Cons: 1am flight would have been nice to sleep. But being in the very last row aisle seat right next to the galley and bathroom was impossible. Very noisy wish people often bumping into me. Seat was terribly uncomfortable and the arm rest was broken making it even worse
Cons: I had to get my luggage in Mexico City Airport and bring it to the connection flight to Lima by myself. I don't like it. They call it "service"?
Cons: My bags were left at origin airport (SFO), now I have 2 kids in cancun that can't go to the pool because we have no clothes, I will need to figure out tomorrow what to do. Not happy right now!
Cons: Horrible service, old planes, running 1 hour late, no entertainment
Cons: They lost my luggage, when I have a very important return to Mexico. This airline is an exact clone of American Airlines, which are known for their horrible and disgusting customer service. They said I should have my luggage by tomorrow, but I don't believe it as this isn't the first time with me flying with them and they loose my luggage (it's take them 3 days to return my luggage and there was never reimbursement for the receipts of clothes and items I had to purchase because they were in my bag they lost!). Your mediocracy isn't going to make you a legacy airline AEROMEXICO, this is an AVgeek who has work for the industry!
Pros: Excellent legroom, no hidden charges, nice friendly service, on time arrival, great price
Cons: The social distancing was completely random. I had two girls sitting next to me meanwhile there were entire rows of seats completely open. Totally unnecessary!
Pros: Caring and through personnel in the face of a virus.
Cons: Hand sanitizer and temp check at gate. I watched a crew member pick her nose.
Pros: Is hard to think what did I like. Nothing
Cons: Poor customer service. They charge for every thing. You cannot change your trip without charges. They do not answer when you call them. The fly attendant are rode.
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: 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
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.
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: Giving food to passengers as it used to be.
Cons: Not pay to much for my luggage
Pros: Flight delay horrible ... almost missed my connecting flight .
Cons: Better connecting flights
Cons: None , everything worked out well it was an excellent fly
Pros: The crew was nice but your prices are ridiculous. I cant believe you charge for snacks. Also, your seats were uncomfortable and you charge $60 for checked baggage never in my life have i had to pay that much. I’ve told all my friends to never use your services &i have a large social media influence
Cons: You guys should really fix your prices it’s ridiculous instead of gaining clients you’re LOSING THEM
Pros: Crew was amazing and on time.
Cons: Seats are a little hard no cushion
Pros: Not much.
Cons: Everything. Especially fun was the thousands of mosquitoes INSIDE THE PLANE!!! Off to buy some calamine lotion.
Cons: Crew was not prepared with enough custom forms. When we arrived at airport it was a mad Scramble to find some.
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.
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: Seat was so uncomfortable
Cons: Better seat more space
Pros: The seat was awful! No cushion at all. Very old like you are sitting on a piece of hard wood for 3 hours. Causes unnecessary back pain. No leg room or arm room. Won’t travel Volaris again.
Pros: Boarding was fast.
Cons: Flight was delayed.
Pros: The crew was very nice & everything was very clean.
Cons: The menu options was very vague and everything was so expensive. The only thing that was free was a cup of water. They could definitely improve their menu
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: Late boarding, late landing but claim on time.
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
Pros: New plane
Cons: Gate decision because we had to wait until last minute to announce
Pros: The price is good. The punctuality is good
Cons: The luggage fee is too high
Pros: On time
Cons: Never ever am fliying with volaris airlines they charge for everything for seats for food and service horrible they didnt let me carry my little ourse i had on the side like really bad experience
Cons: Left 22 minutes late, there was a bomb scare, we made a emergency landing and after one hour we are still on the plane with no ens in sight.
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.
Cons: They want we paid for everything, even for my purse... the seats very uncomfortable
Cons: The thing that I don't like is that you guys don't offer good food just snacks, and seriously that is no enough for the prise that the costumers pay for. This is just a comment, I hope you guys do something about it.
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: I had to pay an extra $ 26.00 for my only carrying on bag. Which states on my purchase One bag free.
Pros: Great service
Pros: everything went well from check-in to the flight crew to getting a taxi.
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: 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???
Cons: Worst customer service i ever had.
Cons: Over an hour and a half late.
