Because I was told by 2 different people AND the flight announcement that I had to, it caused a lot of undue stress when I waited for my bag and it never showed up, because it was being sent all the way to Merida, my final destination. I thought my bag was lost, and I was scared flying to another country by myself, so it would have really helped my trip if they understood to tell me to look on my baggage receipt what city it said on there."

Cons: "At the time to pick up bags it was very confusing, people saying it was on a different band, information was not clear and my bag was already in the floor, for a long time. Very confusing how people on the ground have different information to what the screens are saying"

Cons: "They lost my baggage and then I lost my flight, I want a refund I am still on Mexico City"
Cons: "Food quality was poor changed to smaller plane st last minute and had to get seats reassigned, no gin on the plane. Flight was delayed , your website was slow and could not do check in over the web, when I️ got to the counter 3 hours before my flight I️ was still delayed because I️ couldn’t do an online check in. Made it to the gate with one hour to spare but don’t think you should penalize people because of your own issues"
Pros: "Not much to like in mediocre flight. Gate agents were nice and couteous."

Cons: "The main meal was terrible...sticky pasta with little to no taste. A bun that tasted like it sat out a day on the table. No butter, no salt, no pepper. And pudding with both meals? yuck!"
Cons: "The flight from DC took a lot of time, as consequence I missed the other flight to Zacatecas. Now I have to wait 10 hours and the outrageous part is that I had to pay $200 extra for the other ticket"
Cons: "The worst flight of my life."
Cons: "I did not like the gate attendants poor customer service and discrimination . Yelling at the customer. Then the flight attendants seemed mad and also gave poor customer service . Would not recommend this company. Flights were always delayed. Horrible experience."
Cons: "Them sending us an email two and a half months after we made the reservation to change the outgoing flight causing us to have a six hour leftover."

Pros: "Personnel was very courteous and helpful, smooth flight."
Cons: "AEROMEXICO doesn't allow any checked baggage you have to pay for every single piece of luggage that you check so I guess this is not good at all!!! On top of this I called like 5 times to Aeromexico....Reservations...custumser service...reservations again...custumer service again... bottom line each one of them gave me different information?????!!!! so I just had to guess which one was the correct answer from the same company AEROMEXICO!!!!"
