ALSO, once I got my new passport (17 hours later) I was told that I had to pay $170 penalty for moving my departure day and $680 because I had to adjust to the new ticket price. At that point I decide to buy a new ticket with a different airline. AVIANCA SUCKS!!! They are NOT very accommodating at all.

Cons: "Dec 19th SFO - San Salvador- Lima (Peru) They cancelled the departure for 12 hrs, instead of :600 am we finally left from SFO at 6:25 pm. Everyone missed their connection flights. So they took us to a nice hotel. We finally left San Salvador the next day at 3 pm. So I spent two days flying to my final destination (Lima-Peru).

The crew was unwilling to help me find something else to eat and they were very rude. I am very disappointed of their customer service standards. I will not use Turkish Airlines again."

Cons: "I'm a wheelchair passenger, which was a DISASTER in Istanbul!. It took nearly an hour to get to off and to passport control. And on the plane, it was very uncomfortable because of so little leg room.

Too many delays, first from SF to Istanbul and then the worse part no one was able to tell me from which gate my flight to TLV, I received at least 6 emails from you saying a different gate each time and we had a delay almost two hours in Istanbul.

Shuttle service to and from the hotel. The hotel was fine(I mean not great but it was descent)."
Cons: "The flight attendants aren't super nice and if they don't understand you they kinda just move on. So that was sort of annoying."

Then I went back and the next guy said I couldn't have my seat even though it was 2minutes later and gave me a new seat but a better seat. Then the first guy comes over to give me a boarding pass for my second flight and again he changed my seat to an awful seat. And I wanted to sit next to a friend from Mexico City to Lima so that seat change was really mean. Once one the plane the man in my original seat got an upgrade so I got to sit next to my friend about half way through the flight when she came to tell me about the empty seat when she came to the back of the plane to use the bathroom."

Cons: "All the announcements are in Spanish which makes it hard for everyone else to understand. Flight departure was delayed as well."

Cons: "Both planes delayed and carry on luggage lost"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfort,"
Cons: "Crew was really RUDE"

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: "Easy and fast boarding , good service , good flight . Overall no complaints very good !"

Pros: "They did all they were supposed to do. Good trip"

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"

Pros: "The crew were very attentive. I welcomed the unexpected food. They warned ahead of time of a full flight for people to check in carry on's at no charge. Can't beat the entertainment. Had a blast with the movie selection. Definitely I'm coming back to fly with Aeromexico."
Cons: "The long line/wait to check in my bags and the erroneous information about the weight of the luggage I was allowed which ended up in me paying excess weight . But since my ticket was very inexpensive; it compensated for that. Otherwise, I will be a bit upset. Please check on more non-stop flight from Bay Area California to MX City."

Pros: "The services on the counter"
Cons: "My flight was delayed"

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: "Boarding time, entertainment, personnel."
Cons: "Losing connection flight and wait almost 11 hours overnight for next flight."

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: "Actual flights were on time"
Cons: "The airline changed my flight a few days before my trip changing my layover from 2 to 15 hours, providing no form of compensation. I suspect they cancelled my original flight because it was not full. A trip with a 15 hour layover would have been cheaper originally. Mexico city airport has poor amenities and internet access."

Pros: "Efficient and friendly service."

Pros: "I like that there are USB charging ports under the tv for every seat."

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: "N/A"

Pros: "No comentes"
Cons: "Nothing's"

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: "- Personal Media Station - Food - Water served at least twice - Fast flight"
Cons: "- Not enough space to fit my carry-on - No self service for check-in in the airport."

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing"

Cons: "eveything was bad"

Pros: "Courteous, professional, efficient. Good sense of humor!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This company is obviously dedicated to providing a quality product."

Pros: "Crew was modest!"
Cons: "The smell"

Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Terrible customer service. Lack sense of urgency once time to go. Lack of coordination. Horrible customer interfacing and attitude"

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
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!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible service, old planes, running 1 hour late, no entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent legroom, no hidden charges, nice friendly service, on time arrival, great price"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Entertainment was good on some flights but not on all."

Pros: "Me gusto mucho la atención personalisada de todo el personal de Aeromexico. Brindan información detallada y precisa de los vuelos en conexión. Definitivamente volvere a viajar con Aeromexico y lo recomendare a mis amistades y familiares."
