The gate was changed last minute we didn’t hear no announcements this was our first time flight out from Mexico to Tijuana and because we were not well informed we missed our flight, aroeMexico Employees were really rude when asked to see if we could get out flight replaced. Didn’t help at all. We ended having to buy 2 new tickets. Awful will not recommend this flight to anyone."

Will never fly Aeromexico AGAIN!!! Worse day ever and TSA took my girlfriend iPhone during the 7 times they went through our stuff !!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were good"
Cons: "As mentioned in a previous comment, while I enjoy AM domestic first/business class product on the new planes, unfortunately, I cannot say the same about their old ones. AM seats do not provide a footrest, and there is the lack of the IFE, which on a longer flight like mex-tij could have made the flight more enjoyable. Food, AM domestic business class food options are not the best, it was a turkey/cheese sandwich on a white bread with heavy mayo, and milk rice-while delicious, also very heavy on the sugar"

Pros: "The comfort during the whole flight is remarkable"
Cons: "no comments."
Pros: "Not much to like."

ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"
Pros: "The tv's on the flight back to Tijuana"
Cons: "No tv's on the way to GDL"

Cons: "The service from the air hostess"
Pros: "Lounge"
Cons: "Seats and technology on the planes. Not the most modern fleet in mexico"
Cons: "My luggage wheel was broken :("
Pros: "Comfort."
Cons: "No remarks."
Cons: "All , service , plane , on time , all"
Pros: "Everything was nice and easy."
Pros: "The seats were nice, the plane had tv's, and it looked high end for an economy ticket"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Aeromexico in Mexico city has a major communication problem. This is the second time we have flown thru there and found that they don’t update the TVs. You need to ask their agents if you updated information like gate changes."
Cons: "This airline seemed to be unprepared at every step of the way. When I showed up to the airport to check my baggage (this was 2 hours before my flight) there was a huge line of people already there. I went to the back of the line and after 15 minutes of not moving I texted my family that I might be missing my flight. As I got closer to the front a nervous and overwhelmed Aeromexico employee went to the back of the line and handed the last person a paper and told her she would be the last person allowed on the flight. Anyone lined up after her was turned away because they had showed up too late. It seemed to me that those people would have made it onto the flight if the airline had been prepared and ready to check everyone in on time. When I was finally able to check my bag there were only 20 minutes left until my flight was supposed to depart. I rushed to the security checkpoint and ran to my gate in fear of missing my flight, only to find another large line of people. They hadn't even started boarding! After waiting 10 minutes in line (10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart), the crew slowly strolled to the gate. They didn't even seem to care. Overall, my experience was below average, but seeing how people were not allowed to board due to the airline not being prepared for this flight, I would say I won't be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about Aeromexico service."
Cons: "The staff was rude. Never in my life have I been treated this disrespectful. I felt very offended by the staffs attitude and actions to the point I felt discriminated because of my religion. Yearly my church flys with Aeromexico to Mexico and I've never had a problem but this year I felt very targeted . As I was checking in they told me that my luggage was 2 pounds over the weight they direct us to have it so the employee told us to go and take some items out , we moved from the line and he 'shooed' us away saying "no go all the way back" we did and when we tried to go back to check in another employee cut me off from going in line and told us she didn't care for what I had to say and to return to the back of the line. At this point I was already worked up from their behavior and my mother whom was traveling with me tried to calm me down. As we get to the from of the line the SAME guy who 'shooed' us had a customer who had an over weight luggage , BUT let him take out item right there and then with his luggage on the scale . Well my mother got upset because we didn't know what it consisted of to have that privilege. We get attended by the employee who cut me off and my luggage was still 1 pound over the weight limit and she instructed us to get out and take items out , we expressed to her that it wasn't fair how other people who were flying got the advantage of just doing it there and we asked why . She denied ever doing that and said to go with the employee who did that because she refused to attend us . We asked another employee if we could speak to a supervisor and we were being persisted but she would ignore us and walk away from us . We couldn't believe how badly they were treating us. So we then went on to go with the employee who 'shooed' my mother and I and asked him why did he give special privileges to other people flying and was discriminated us , he literally told us "what discrimination? You guys need to relax. What do you want? Do you want me to attend you or what? I have other people waiting" he checked us in and NEVER saw or spoke to a supervisor . We will def never be flying with them again ."
Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"
Cons: "The flight got delayed an hour and the ladies never gave us at least a curtious call to let passengers know that the flight would be delayed and people had to constantly go ask about the flight and they also didn't let us know where to find our baggage at the end of our flight"
Pros: "It was great! Great people,great food, entertainment,blankets, pillows,music, great view in the eye."
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything !!!"

Pros: "The aircraft seats were nice. The departure was delayed, but the takeoff and landing was fine."
Cons: "Which airline operates today where the ground staff and the flight crew don't speak or understand English? All announcements at the gate were in Spanish and most of the announcements by the flight crew were in Spanish too. Only the pilot made announcements in both Spanish and English. Thank God! And what's with not letting passengers have their headphones on during take off and landing. Low-cost airline doesn't mean Low-IQ."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, the service, they charge for everything."
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"
