Pros: "The crew was very nice helpful and always there in case of questions. We arrived earlier for about 18 minutes it was unexpected but good. Thank you."

I think in those situations the first class bathroom should be an option to use it was a little or more than that for some passengers because some times is hard to wait. But first time this happens and is not the crews fault. Thank you"
Cons: "I needed assistance and it was kindly provided"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything"
Cons: "They didn’t do procedures letting us know to look at the board to see the flights and the gate we were going to come out at. 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."

Pros: "If we could give 0 stars we would."
Cons: "4 hour delay, they had us go up and downstairs 3 times and from one end to the other in the airport. The airport is infested with mosquitos. It seemed like AeroMéxico employees didn't have a clue as to what was going on or how to follow any procedures whatsoever."
Cons: "the second part departed late ...."
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Cons: "Horrible service, old planes, running 1 hour late, no entertainment"
Pros: "The staff is attentive and helpful."
Cons: "Connection time was simply not enough, my first flight was delayed and when i got off the plane I had to run throughout the airport to catch my next flight in the last minute to board. Also they charge extra for your bags but no where in the web page I was informed of such charge."
Cons: "Flight cancelled with little explanation and little help from Aero Mexico to help us get to our destination. Had to request refund instead and have not seen that yet, either- more than a week later."
Cons: "Ads while in the plane!"
Cons: "Intentamos comprar tres veces comprar y rechazó la operación y 30 minutos después , ya que había comprado el boleto en taquilla me mandan confirmación y hicieron encargo , les pedí la.cancelación y no la.hicieron aun cuando el.error fue de ustedes voy a promover la baja.calidad de su aplicación soy conductor de radio y publicidad en los Ángeles"

Pros: "Everything is provided free of charge; food, earphones, etc."
Pros: "Plane on time. No setbacks"
Cons: "Long line in customs in Mexico City especially since we had to make a connection. Also the inconvenience of getting our luggage in Mexico City and then re sending it to Cabo SAN Lucas."

Cons: "I’m very surprised for the poor service.and hold the people inside the plane for an hrs before departure iin Mexico City and Guadalajara. You have to work harder to your personal goals. For good service."
Cons: "I have yet to have any complaints about volaris they are economical"
Pros: "Unfortunately, I don’t have anything positive to say"
Cons: "I paid extra for seats by the emergency exit. And they move me because my son is underage. Why did they take the payment if they wouldn’t let us seat where we requested?"

Pros: "Seat was so uncomfortable"

Cons: "Worst customer service i ever had."
Pros: "Cheap ticket prices."
Cons: "Flight was changed to 3 days later than we were supposed to leave. Not able to reach customer service. Kiosks in Mexico City have no idea what is happening, I had to raise my voice for someone flying to help translate. Horrible old planes with tiniest seating. Never again."
Cons: "The baggage never arrived and the customer service is beyond terrible"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and efficiently. I think they offered soft drinks or snacks but I was asleep."
Cons: "The fact that I was unable to use TSA Pre-Check on this airline."
Cons: "Los sobrecargos, Eduardo e Itzel, no dejaron de agarrarse las manos, abrazarse durante el vuelo. La falta de profesionalismo es clara y decepcionante del grupo que esperas que este pendiente que todo vaya en orden. No es posible tomar a unos jóvenes en serio cuando te dan instrucciones si se comportan así. Además, Eduardo salió a cabina, cepillándose los dientes, y poniéndose spray en el cabello (cuando los aerosoles claramente están prohibidos."
Pros: "flight left on time"
Cons: "seats had fairly limited legroom. but then again the price was inexpensive so i can't complain."

Cons: "La línea Volaris o por lo menos el avión en el que viajamos es muy viejo. Y el mantenimiento deficiente."
Cons: "El abordaje en La Paz, fue eterno, súper lento ."
Cons: "very little leg room"
Pros: "I like the customer care from the crew but the crew from the airport could have been more helpful in helping me figure out where I needed to go to catch my flight. The app also failed on me when I needed my boarding pass. But the flight and the crew that attended it did a fine job. The space is justifiable for the price of the ticket, unlike other airlines that boast value. As always the flight was on time. I didn't have any food or entertainment."
Cons: "The accessibility of the boarding passes. The app needs to be revised for bugs."
Cons: "Water can still be free, I mean I know it’s a budget airline, but water?"
Cons: "Crew is always late. Felt like we were thrown into a box and rocketed through the air. Handled my bag horribly. Was covered in mud in arrival"
Cons: "We borded plane and stayed and did not depart until 1hr and a half after. No explanation from crew as they sat and joked around. Once plane did leave the crew was extremely childish having full blown personal conversations loudly during the flight. During the emergency briefing crew was laughing at eachothers jokes.
