Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front.

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."

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"

Cons: "This schedule is not for me , is too late and is not even direct , I almost miss my connection to Mexico City ."

Pros: "The service was amazing. The staff were friendly and quick to answer my concerns."

Cons: "You need more service options . Your flight was cancelled last minute. You could have informed us early."

Pros: "Please don't travel with Volaris, extremely old seats I felt like I was seating on a wooden board with some rocks on it. No room leg. You won't get any help from the Staff at check-in. I was charged $10 to print your boarding pass, the machines to print the boarding pass didn't work."
Cons: "Volaris need to get new seats. Volaris charge you almost for even breathing, I am not kidding. They ask you to use the machines at the airport to print the boarding pass but their logo is not on this machines that's how they make $10 on each passenger. Bad experience."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

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."

Pros: "Internet was a great experience. Comfortable and efficient."
Cons: "Volaris was the worst airline I have ever used. Rude, check in, no legroom, a charge for water? ??????? Horrible"

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."

Then get an e-mail at 1:45 am the day of my flight which was scheduled for 7 am that the pricing value was incorrect and my booking was canceled. I flew from New York to California where I was going to get a connecting flight the next day but my connecting flight purchase was terminated. I have never experienced this and I was left stranded and unable to get to my destination. I had transportation waiting for me and I had to find out the morning of my flight. All I got was an e-mail stating they tried to reach me but that was a LIE because I did not receive any phone calls. The flight I booked was booked right away so no time elapsed for the price to go up. When I called to complain to the company they were unable to help me and no supervisor or manager was available. I was told to call back in 3 hours for someone to assist me but that I was not going to be able to get on my flight because now, the morning of my flight the price was $200 more then what was advertised when booking. This is unacceptable and unprofessional."

Pros: "The price for flight"
Cons: "Once your there you ticket doesn’t say if your luggage was included, so I had to pay upfront there and on the way back which costed more for luggage. 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"

Cons: "The worst experience since, besides they weight your luggage before check-in, they do it again right before you take the airplane. The cost for register a luggage os 45usd!!!!! Wtf..."

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: "Everything was ok."

Cons: "Charge way too much. Charged to pick a seat when doing check in from the app. Only reason doing check in from app was so I wouldn’t get charged for getting boarding pass at desk."

Pros: "Ticket prices"
Cons: "On our flight back they were weighing bags as we were in line to board and charging people who had no idea their bag was over weight. The crew came off somewhat rude and annoyed when asked questions. flight left 30 minutes after scheduled departure. Food and drinks were both charged when I can pay a little more on another airline and get it for free. Lines for bag drop off are ridiculously long and not organized. Charging service fee for help to get a boarding pass is uncalled for, since many older people are traveling."
