Cons: "Buying a ticket with connecting flight and having 2 diferent airlines combined can get wrong information to customers. I thought I had bought my ticket thru delta and turns out is was with aeromexico, delta has no weight limit on carry on luggage and aeromexico does, i received an email from delta airlines for me to check in so i look at their luggage policy on carry on and when i arrived at the airport i had to go to aeromexico counter to check in one luggage and turns out i also had to pay for my carry on luggage becouse it exceded aeromexico carry on weight policy which i didn’t fully agree but ended up paying anyways"

Pros: "Wheelchair service for seniors"
Pros: "Fast and courteous service. Hassle free. I would most definitely fly again with Aeromexico."
Cons: "Waited on tarmac in Mexico Cory for 50 minutes to park the plane"
Pros: "The seat was very comfortable the service was terrible the flight attendant helped the attendants in coach before taking care of the 3 passengers in first it was disrespectful the peanuts were horrible and the wine was terrible"
Cons: "Do you really want a list?"
Pros: "Although the plane was old, I found the seat to be very comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty much nonexistent. Plane was old and legroom tight."

Pros: "That we arrived pretty soon, but what was my surprise, we landed at a different place."
Cons: "More than two hours almost 3 of delay and I had an emergency"
Pros: "I love the airline, great service."
Cons: "The seats are worn out and they hurt your bottom."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 1am to 9am, then again from 9am to 11.30am. Finally got to Mexico City 12 hrs after we were supposed to. No compensation or apology was provided. Only way we found out about new flight times was through email. Airport did not make announcements."
Cons: "I actually arrived early, which turned out to be a mistake, because Aeromexico moved the gate to the farthest possible new gate location while I was away getting a sandwich, which was itself delayed. When I noticed the change, I ran to the new gate and waited 10 minutes while they talked to the boarding people, who wouldn't let me on. After several hours of bag retrieval, having to buy a new full price ticket, having my cards declined due to the price and circumstances, having to go through 2+ wrong directions for each step of the process, determining that maybe one employee in five could speak even minimal English in an international airport, I finally got on a Delta flight. In sum, won't be flying on Aeromexico in future."
Cons: "My seat was broken"
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Guadalajara!"
Cons: "Check in process at Tijuana airport was okay, what really made the trip unpleasant was the boarding process. Three Aeromexico departures within minutes, from a small enclosed area. No seating available, no PA for announcements, basically controlled chaos. granted the airport is going through renovations, but that is still no excuse for the poor execution of the boarding process."
Cons: "I tried t change my departure day but they told me that I was not possible so I lost the flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Made us miss our non refundable flight due to customs line for “tourist fee” and scanner not working for passports. Even thought we still had an hour before flight was scheduled to fly they claimed that we would not have enough time to check in bags before the departure. They then proceeded to acknowledge that it was customs fault but they can’t do anything about it. The rest of my party made it to the plane with plenty of time but my husband, 2 year old, 9 month old and I were left stranded in Tijuana, Mexico. The airline didn’t even offer a credit towards another flight, they we offering a new flight two hours later for $2,800 US. Then suggested to maybe arrive earlier next time, even though we arrived 3.5 hours before our domestic Mexico flight! Then when my party arrived at the destination they ask and complained about the incident and found out, the internal note said “ missed flight due to client refusing to pay luggage fees”! Horrible!!!!! What’s worse was that we had to spend the night the airport because they shut down shuttle/car rentals services. Aeromexico worst “company policy”and liars! Tijuana international airport is a joke! Don’t waste your time and money!"
Cons: "I had to pay $286 extra for two extra luggage. I was the impression that Aeromexico would charge $100 pesos for every extra luggage."
Pros: "service,, nice people,, on time the best attention to everyone !!!!"
Cons: "not enough information on the website!!!"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "All members of the staff were very helpful and kind"
Cons: "The ability to reserve emergency exit seats because I am large."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They stole about $3500 dollars from my suitcases. I called Aeromexico, but I can’t get no were. I will also not be using Kayak, until the drop Aeromexico"
Cons: "Missed my second flight cause first flight was delayed and had to wait 5 extra hours to get another flight."
Pros: "The food is delicious"
Cons: "4 hours after departure, a passenger from tourist cabin, came to the first class cabin, the crew realize about it, they laugh, and do nothing."
Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Some crew had attitude"
Pros: "The airplane where I traveled was huge a comfortable, I loved to have my own little TV and being able to choose a movie . The staff was really nice. I wish you had flights from Tijuana to Puebla, Mexico. Please let me how can I find out about your promotions. corazongrsvw@yahoo.com"
Cons: "That I did not travel in the first class or in one of the seat that where after the first class. Those that can be reclined and have a lot of space. I believe they are also first class. Let me know what I can do to be able to travel in one those seats."
Pros: "Everything was great thanks"
Cons: "Air plane crew"
Cons: "Booked first class, ending in a airplane that does not had first class, and I have to pay 55dlls for having another bag. Because according to them I'm allow to have an extra bag if im flying in first class, but they change the airplane and did't have first class so I was in coach( but i pay for first class in my ticket) anyways they just say I'm sorry but you have to pay. So I ended paying a ticket in first class plus an extra bag."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "I missed my from Tijuana to Guadalajara and I called kayak to let them know I still needed the flight from Guadalajara to Tijuana. I asked them not to cancel it and hey said no problem. Well that wasn’t the case my flight got canceled and I had to pay 250 dollar store to get back to Tijuana. If I’m not reimbersed by kayak I wil never use your services again and neither will my family which consists of 11 sibling of mine and more. I expect you guys to make it right. Contact me right away please."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 10 hours, we finally boarded as I was going to put my luggage on he over bin a passenger tells me I couldn’t use the space because she was saving it for her sisters who were not on the plane yet the flight attendant was next to me and allowed this to happen. There were also some very obnoxious passengers and again the flight attendant did nothing to control the situation. By far worst flight and service!"
Cons: "Had a 13 hour delay flight and Aeromexico didn't want to pay for people to stay at hotels"
Cons: "Great service , on time and luggage delivered before I arrived to the carousel"
Pros: "That we arrived"
Cons: "Even though they give you "linear measurements" when you check in they attempt to shove your carry-on in this "one size" box - and heaven forbid it not enter completely... there goes $50 bucks since you've already checked in your 1st bag @$25"
Pros: "They always provide food and beverages. It's great And they help you with all your questions. Great Service"
Pros: "Attentive and Friendly Staff."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The food and drink"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to fog. I was advised that there were 2 options. First, try to rebook for next available flight which would not happen until 3 days later. 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: "I was so happy that Aeromexico and Copa worked together to check my bags all the way to my destination even though I was flying 2 different airlines. It made it so wonderful since I was flying alone with my four kids. Everything went smoothly with the tickets and check in. Everyone was very helpful."

Quick 2 hour flight. Nice overall

Pros: "On time fight"
Cons: "Service airline should serve a least water to the passengers with charging them for it"
Pros: "Is hard to think what did I like. Nothing"
Cons: "Poor customer service. They charge for every thing. You cannot change your trip without charges. They do not answer when you call them. The fly attendant are rode."
Cons: "First time flying Volaris, both flights were delayed. The seats were very uncomfortable and overall bad experience."
Pros: "The crew were really nice!"
Cons: "Better seats!"
Cons: "If they had a vegetarian food option to purchase, and not only different kinds of meat."
Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."
Pros: "The passengers sitting by me were very helpful. They put my carryon on the overhead rack for departure and arrival. The handicapped attendant was excellent when I arrived in Cancun and stayed with me until my transfer was found."
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."
Cons: "I have yet to have any complaints about volaris they are economical"
Cons: "None , everything worked out well it was an excellent fly"
Cons: "El equipaje"
Pros: "The crew never offered me a drink but they offered everyone around me"
Pros: "The price of the ticket."
Cons: "Polaris told passengers to arrive at the Morelia airport 3 hours before departure, which for a 6:20am flight meant 3:20am. Many passengers arrived a little before that time, and there were no Volaris representatives available to answer questions or even a clear area in which to form a queue."
Pros: "The crew was ok no contact no interest on mi is ok"
Cons: "The checking line ,soo bad , need much improvement!"
Cons: "Give the drinks at least for free"
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! Finally the attendant brought a plastic glass of water --which was HOT--not warm, HOT. I complained, only to be told they did not have cold water..."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Excellent customer care and great customer service."
Cons: "Too many people using the restroom. Maybe you might suggest passengers to use the airport restroom facilities before boarding the plane. In my opinion, there was too much people activity for the restroom during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was very professional in appearance and attire."
Cons: "Free snacks."
Pros: "Changed seat easily."
Cons: "Flight was late, little organization at gate, seats so small you hit the seat in front of you so never comfortable, no complimentary food and drink, extremely loud airplane noises throughout flight."
Pros: "Good no-frills airlines"
Cons: "For this type of airline – nothing"
Pros: "Todo."
Cons: "vender mas cervesa"
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: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Poor lack of food choices. No video or radio to listen to for 4 hour flight is unusual especially international flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Servicio"
Pros: "That you guys sold our seats and still in Tijuana for another flight"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Low prices and attractive flight schedules"
Cons: "Hard to keep track of all the additional fees. Very little legroom."
Pros: "All right"
Pros: "Bad"
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Service was great but asking for water should not be a paying matter. They want to charge you for everything."
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "Really unconfortable plane and flight hostess weren’t able to deal with situations."
Pros: "Tight seats"
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: "First time in my life that I've never been offered even a glass of water on a flight. I know this is a budget friendly airline, but on a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles to Guadalajara I would have appreciated a small cup of water."
Pros: "Everything but the seats were fine."
Cons: "Seats were terrible! Bumpy, uncomfortable to sit on even for the hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late. This 3 out of 5 flights I've flown with the airlines unacceptably late."
Pros: "I liked nothing, literally nothing."
Cons: "Between almost making us miss the flight because they couldn’t identify or scan the boarding passes THEY printed out (which were just little stickers on the back of our passports with no information), the flight was over 45 mins late! Additionally, the pilot said it was flight 911 to Los Angeles and then laughed and corrected himself to flight 900 - are you serious? Not a joke."
Pros: "The food and the place"
Cons: "The weather to hot"
Pros: "On time, arrived early, good price, good service"
Cons: "Got to Acapulco too early in the morning to check in the hotel"
Cons: "I booked the flight, received confirmation e-mail and receipt for payment. 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: "I had to pay an extra $ 26.00 for my only carrying on bag. Which states on my purchase One bag free."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "The employees were professional and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "The sandwich we bought was cold and dry"
Pros: "The Valaris staff were most helpful and courteous. The flight crew was professional and the airplane appeared be just fine."
Cons: "The lack of a check-in machine and the long lines at the check-in counter were annoying. Also the legroom in the plane was minimal."
Cons: "checking in process, Over one hour in line which. 2 people 1 regular bag $55 dollars. Pay for everything on the plane except water. Poor ventilation. Couldn;t even lay tray down without it sticking in my gut, I could go on. I fly quite a bit and this was probably the worst experience"
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."
Cons: "One hour delayed"
