Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Caring and through personnel in the face of a virus."
Cons: "Very little leg room"
Cons: "Flight was over sold and lost my seat"
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."
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: "On-time flight"
Cons: "- Worst seats ever. I felt that I was sitting on stones. Limites recline, limited legs space.No entertainment, no water. Worst boarding system EVER!!! ,No flight again, Do not fly this airline!!"
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "The prices for the flights are deceptive. You pay extra for EVERYTHING! Seat assignment, drinks, luggage, additional weight for luggage I’ve 22 lbs. a real ripoff compared to other airlines. Plus, they wouldn’t give us boarding passes for the leg from Guadalajara to Oaxaca in Oakland so we missed that flight and had to buy tickets on another airline."
Pros: "My experience was so terrible I don’t have anything positive to say."
Cons: "1. The original flight I purchased was less than $100, Volaris cancelled it and the only flight available for me to purchase was then $150. 2. After I purchased the 2nd flight, I called within seconds because I noticed my mother’s name was on the ticket instead of mine! I had previously purchased her flight and somehow the kayak site had auto populated her name, i know for a fact did I did not type in her name, it is longer Han mine and has a middle name, i don’t even have a middle name. I think it was justfly, the third party who sent the confirmation email, I explained the situation, they took my contact information and since I had just called they would reach out to Volaris to see if they could change it to my name, and would reach back out to me within a few days. They never called/emailed me back. When I called Volaris they charged me a name change fee off $80+... I don’t know if anyone cares about customer service at Kayak, I have been purchasing all my personal flights through Kayak since 2007, this is by far the worse ticketing/airline experience I have ever had. Also, Volaris charged me $10 for my backpack that I store underneath the seat in front of me! They are a terrible airline, that straight out rips people off. This is the last time I fly with them, and probably last time I use Kayak."

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: "The movie selection."
Cons: "This was probably one of the worst flights I’ve ever had to deal with, the plane was 3 hours late causing me to miss my connection and having to buy a completely new flight. I’m very very displeased and they didn’t offer to help anyone get to gates with connections or for vouchers or refunds."

Cons: "El procedimiento de abordaje es un relajo."
Pros: "Buying the extra space is worth it."
Cons: "Volaris didn’t tell us what happened and didn’t tell us we were going to board late."
Pros: "The direct flight and on time"
Cons: "Got no service from the staff called them over and over they would never come back to me after they said they would be right back"
Pros: "The flight was just fine"
Cons: "The main problem was that when I checked in online, I tried to add on more piece of luggage—for a total of 2 checked in. But the computer ended up totaling it as 3 pieces of luggage. There seemed to be no way to change this online. So I asked them to change it when I got to the airport, but they wouldn’t. What was done couldn’t be changed. Another issue I have is with this review questionnaire. They are questions for rating the food and entertainment which the airlines don’t provide anymore. These should be removed from the survey. They should, however, ask how was the process of making the reservation, check-in, and customer service in general. Both from the airline, and any third party service like kayak or kiwi. I’m not satisfied with kiwi as they were closed when I tried to call them. So I had to just fend for myself and spend money needlessly."
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."
Pros: "flight left on time"
