Refused and made arrangements for an alternate airline. Second option offered was a total refund. Days later when I requested the refund, I was told by Customer Service I was not entitled to anything. Can you help me get a refund?"

Pros: "The crew was better on this flight."
Cons: "It was an old plane and the seat were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 2 days because of fog. Never was the AeroMexico staff remotely informative about teh status of the flight, nor was my hotel covered in Mexico City after I missed my connection and had to spend the night. I slept in the Tijuana airport the 2nd night, after already having gone home the first night when the flight was cancelled. I spent over $100 in transit to/from the Tijuana airport, plus $200 for a hotel in Mexico City. AWFUL experience."

Cons: "I have traveled several times annually with Volaris for at last 13 years and this is the first time the service was so bad, virtually no service was offered at any time. Everything seemed disorganized. No food was offered or even a glass of water. I am 86 years old and travel handicapped all over the world with excellent service. I was shocked that I as dumped in a seat at the Volaris gate from the wheel chair by the attendant; and, who never returned to help me board the plane. I made the mistake of tipping him well. No ramp was available and I had to beg for help with my carryon as I have to hold on with both hands to go up the stairs. Cancun’s attendant for handicapped was much better and truly helped me and stayed with me until my transfer was found. Tijuana’s airport service was horrible."
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "Volaris's system apparently was malfunctioning that prevented anyone from checking in online or through any app which caused stress the day before travel. Even worse, they couldnt even check in at the gate and had to fill out forms by hand, which caused a 2 hours delay!"
Cons: "I have yet to have any complaints about volaris they are economical"
Pros: "Affordability, that's about all that is good with Volaris. Everything else is either bad or mediocre."
Cons: "Don't board passengers onto the aircraft until it is ready for passengers. Both direction (OAK to MEX and MEX to OAK), we were boarded onto a hot (not aconditioned) aircraft for at least 15 minutes before the A/C is turned on. In addition, boarding were completed and all passengers were sitting in the aircraft for over an hour before it started the taxis to the run way....why board passengers so early? At least turn on the A/C and let the cabin cool down before boarding passengers."

I couldn’t even get a credit since I didn’t call within 3 hours of departure. I would not recommend!!!"
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."
Cons: "My wife needed a little water to take some essential medicine. She asked flight attendant for some water--over 30 minutes she asked 4 (four) times!

Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Cons: "vender mas cervesa"
Pros: "La organización para salir en tiempo"
Cons: "Yo viajo seguido por esta aerolínea y por otras también. Y desde hace no mucho tiempo veo que ya no es posible seleccionar tu asiento sin costo ni siquiera cuando el check in está abierto. Esto se me hace ya una exageración de querer obtener utilidades de todo. Es un absurdo, pues todos nos vamos a ir y es una causa de molestia y que me haría pensar a mi y otros muchos en no comprar más con ustedes. Entiendo que quien quiera asegurar su asiento desde mucho tiempo antes pague por este servicio. Pero no al momento de abrir el vuelo. A veces viajamos acompañados y resulta imposible sentarse juntos. En mi opinión y de muchos amigos que viajamos con ustedes esto nos tiene en desagrado y ocasiona que adentro del avión andemos cambiando lugares y retrasar los despegues."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Hassle free, luggage was no issue easy check in and boarding. I really wanted enjoyed my trip with volaris."
Cons: "There’s nothing I can really think of it was a great experience."
Pros: "That you guys sold our seats and still in Tijuana for another flight"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "I understand this is a cheap airline. However their flow to measure every bag is terrible. Each passenger with a carry on has to line up to get a sticker.

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "Late in EVERYTHING Children in the floor while you try to go to the bathroom even during the landing, and staff say nothing"
Cons: "I was havin a bit of a problem loading mr boarding pass when we started boarding. Instead of helping the gate attendant, whom I found fairly arrogant, told me to get out of the line and said I would be boarding last. I expressed that such instruction was nor acceptable since I had paid the priority boarding fee. When I finally uploades the boarding pass (withput their help, I was alloewd to go through only to find out that everyone was boarding a bus to take us to a remote location. So what is the point of charging priority boardong if everyone boards at the same time? If ypu are charging for something you are obligated to deliver what you charged for."
Pros: "Transportation without frills"
Cons: "The sre increasing their fees so no longer a low cost airline"
Pros: "That the plane landed. Attendants were friendly and followed protocol."
Cons: "Seat felt like a public bus seat. Charged for water but I was surprise that there was no charge for toilet use. Volaris gets you to destination but charges $60 to check-in luggage. Carry on must way less than 10kg (my purse was weighed with suitcase so I was over). No movie or music."

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."

They aggressively tried to take my carryon and told me I had to pay 41$ per bag or I could not get on plane. Only when I asked for a manager and found someone to interpret for me and show with a measuring tape and we did they allow me on... total scam - the gate attendant conned at least 15 people before us that had smaller bags that they had to pay (very aggressively in Spanish and many passengers did not speak Spanish so gave in and payed just to get on flight). Once on the flight- you can adjust your seat which for me wasn’t a big deal at 5’1” but any taller would be an issue. You pay for even water on this flight."
