Pros: "Everything except the food"
Cons: "The food is atrocious. Even if I have to pay to upgrade my meal, I would..."

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"

Cons: "Queue at boarding gate for upper class ticket holders Bus transfer to plane - Virgin is not a LoCo airline! Upper Class Service was slow - understaffed?"

Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent!"
Cons: "I paid extra for Economy Delight seats for me and my wife. Shortly after take-off, our calm and comfortable more or less empty section of the aircraft was colonised by an extended family of Orthodox Jews in a kind of airborne West Bank situation. They weren’t in our section of the cabin at all to start with, and I don’t know why they were apparently able to get a free upgrade that I had to pay £100 for. We went from being in an almost empty cabin to being basically sat in the middle of an Orthodox Jewish kindergarten. It was awful! They were noisy, messy, were constantly getting in and out of their seats, the back of my seat kept getting kicked, and there was even a baby crawling around the aisle. We were surrounded. I have no idea whether this is characteristic of Orthodox Jewish family life, or just a completely inconsiderate family. They didn’t exactly ruin my flight, but they didn’t make it enjoyable either. I asked to be moved. The cabin crew were great and acknowledged the difficulty of the situation. My wife lost her window seat but at least we still had the legroom and peace and quiet."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Seats and legroom poor if you’re six feet tall"

Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"

Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."

Pros: "Cool flight, mainly because it was empty. Good food"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable. Entertainment sucked because the screen functions were terrible, very difficult"

Cons: "Too much food - not enough time to sleep in comfort!"

Pros: "Quite a big choice of movies and TV shows to watch, more than enough for an eight hour flight. Normal headphone plugs so you can use your own."
Cons: "I booked together with my wife, yet we were allocated seats apart and were not able to be reassigned together. The leg room was so tight that I could not pick up things off the floor without putting my head in the next persons lap. Though the cabin crew were smiley and friendly, it was hard to get their attention when needed. The PA system is much louder than the entertainment, so announcements were ear bursting. The dinner selections ran out early, so a good proportion did not get their choice."

Cons: "Food was terrible"

Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."

Cons: "We were told over the phone that we could bring our kayaks with us to Africa but the airport staff denied not only our kayaks, but also our paddles which were in a standard ski bag. Their excuse was that both the kayaks and paddle bags were 2 inches too long. .. TWO INCHES!!!!!! We had record of the person we talked to and the time and date, but none of that seemed to matter. It caused A HUGE INCONVENIENCE for us since we are in Zambia for 6 weeks without our gear to paddle one of the most challenging rivers in the world... the Zambezi. Now we are constantly trying to acquire the proper equipment with very little success. We run a nonprofit called the Montana Kayak Academy which provides free whitewater instruction to youth between 8 &18 yrs old and we will be sure to tell everyone we know to NOT TRAVEL WITH EITHER VIRGIN ATLANTIC OR BRITISH AIRWAYS.... EVER!!! VERY DISAPPOINTED! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"

Pros: "Amazing food and drinks, and to top it off we were served a frozen ice cream treat during our flight."

Pros: "I had a great experience from start to end of my trip. Most of the staff were pleasant and professional. Food wasn't okay and red wine on flight from Heathrow was delicious."
Cons: "The red wine on the flight from Lagos was too sharp. That is the regular one served on virgin flight so was glad when I tasted the new one served on the flight from Heathrow, thinking it's been changed!"

Pros: "NA"

Pros: "Entertainment selection Cabin Service associates were very good WiFi service available"
Cons: "The planes are old and tired, new 787s on this route are long overdue. Thomson's premium service is an improved offering over Virgin and offers more inclusive extras such as lounge access. There is no wonder wall on the 747 only a wonder "basket" If you are flying from Gatwick, upgrading to premium isn't worth it. Go to upper class or fly with another airline. Check in was quicker for Economy passengers and it proved a challenge to work past the economy passengers during boarding to get to the premium agent."

Pros: "the crew were the friendliest I've flown with (Irish & British)... the lighting was very relaxing and the continuous snack service was much appreciated (especially ice cream).. gonna try premium economy next time as the seats looked even better..."
Cons: "Vera the entertainment screen was very good but there were no newly released movies, everything seemed to be a couple of months old... the leather headrest was comfortable but kept slipping down to behind my neck, would be nice if it was lockable in position.."

Pros: "Everything went very fast and smooth. I didn't have to queue for the boarding. The Sita were very comfortable, the crew very friendly and halepful and the selection of the movies A+."

Cons: "the child got the same food as us due i did not make clear i need a child food, now i am asking : is not clear that in that seat is a child of 4 years old ?"

Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."

Pros: "1st class, what's not to like?"

Pros: "Food was great, plenty of it also"
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and there was no acknowledgement by the crew that I was squashed into a tight seat."

Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "There are lots of relatively new movies to choose from."
Cons: "The complimentary headset breaks easily. Tray table was broken and they can't fix it. Very small bathrooms, knees almost touch the door when sitting down. Food selection for dinner ran out quickly, resulting in only 2 choices and one is hot spicy, so basically only one choice. All beverages are given out in small cups, even water is given out in small cups increments (finish in one gulp), they don't even give out small bottles of water. No complimentary packet (eye shades, socks etc.) , not even a barf bag for collecting trash."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "this is not an airline, this is a bus company"

Pros: "Virgin Atlantic had a very attractive decor.Food was great& staff as well. Polite and professional ."
Cons: "The seat I had was a bit snug leg wise and recline wise. Could not get comfortable at all."

Cons: "I did not get the requested meal. I had requested Asian Veg meal. I had reconfirmed that Virgin Atlantic Kiosk at Heathrow airport as well. In flight when I asked cabin crew they said they didn't get any request. I was hungry whole flight. Very bad experience."

Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"

Pros: "The plane was very nice with great lighting. More food would have been nice as it was a long flight The crew were variable - most very helpful but one or two not so much"
Cons: "Not enough food for everyone and no snacks between meals, which was very bad considering it was a 10 hour flight Entertainment was great, seats were OK (certainly had worse)"

Pros: "As expected, great customer service from Virgin. Great Vera system. Friendly and welcoming experience."
Cons: "The seats!!!! Omg I got bed sores. Not really but they have got to be the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat in. For a European flight from Uk they'd be fine. But for 9 hours...not good. The short hop down from ATL to MCO after was a blessed relief. Virgin, you have got to think a little more about your passengers asses. Also, having flown with just about every major transatlantic operator, including previous trips with Virgin, the knee room was not good. If you stretched out under the seat in front you were ok but draw your knees up... I wore short trousers for comfort and have sore points on my knees where they rubbed against the material of the chair in front."

Cons: "Cold draft at all times."

Pros: "Flight was on time .. Friendly crew. Good entertainment system"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and leg room very tight . Didn't sleep well."

Pros: "Everything except the seating - far too cramped now"
Cons: "Seating! Seats getting ridiculously tight"

Pros: "The Virgin Atlantic Club was nice. The special security line was a bonus."
Cons: "Selection of onboard movies not very good. The crew was not so friendly. Menu could be more varied. The A340 configuration is not so good for Business class. Staring at other people across the aisle is not so nice."

Pros: "Every single aspect of this international flight was outstanding from check-in, customer service, the equipment, the meals, in-flight entertainment, etc. There is nothing I could suggest to improve this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!"

Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"

Cons: "45 minute delay on runway after landing was very very frustrating."

Cons: "It was late leaving."

Pros: "Excellent in all aspects, to and fro."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Pressurising on new plane seemed to make long trips less tiring."
Cons: "New plane's weird electronic window shades had us in darkness with sun up high! Unsettling. Couldn't operate the switch under the window. Very noisy systems such as flaps, wheels, etc. Screaming, grinding banging noises. Address system unhearable & useless."

Pros: "Easy and quick check in"

Pros: "Having had the chance to do many international trips, I've never found an airline as consistently satisfying as Virgin Atlantic. Let's face it, unless you're flying Upper/Business Class, you're always going to be short of room and the food you're served on flights is never going to be something that makes you rave, but I have yet to come across a Virgin staff member who hasn't tried to go the extra mile to make the trip as pleasant as possible."

Pros: "Liked foot room"
Cons: "Padded seat belt very uncomfortable.., tv control & pad on seatbelt pushed me into client on left, big gent sitting next to her pushed her into me.., people walked thru isle & stepped on my toes..., why virgin Atlantic moved us & gave refund I will never know...we paid for extra leg rm 4 months ago"

Pros: "Service was good. Attendants polite. Information good."

Pros: "We were bumped to 1st class, presumably because of our Delta gold skymiles card. It was great! The duration of the +3 hour flight was heavenly!"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze....arrived slightly earlier than expected."
Cons: "Nothing to not like"

Pros: "There wasn't much to like. Just about everything was wrong. The plane was a newish 787, so it didn't feel old. Boarding went well because we complained about how tired we, at 70+, were because the flight was late and we'd been standing up; this resulted in us being boarded with some of the latish priority passengers."
Cons: "Everything, really. The plane was very crowded; small seats, little leg room. The meals were mediocre and the cabin staff were just barely the good side of unhelpful, officious and unfriendly The flight was inexplicably 2 hours or more late in excellent weather. No apologies given, the flight that was originally scheduled for 8 pm left close to 11 pm. While boarding the only light is a purplish ambient lighting that made it impossible to read anything, including the safety material, until the inflight entertainment was loaded up (the lights are only controlled through software-actuated virtual buttons on the screen). The inflight entertainment system is hard to use, too, designed by idiots for use by geniuses. But the very worst thing was the stress caused by Virgin Atlantic in just about guaranteeing that we would miss this flight. On our outbound voyage in January, VA, for reasons nobody knows, booked an ADDITIONAL leg from JHB to CPT on BA at 12:30 pm, even though we were already ON the earlier 9:30 BA flight we'd booked and paid for. Then, when we didn't show up for this spurious flight (because we were already in the air) we didn't book (BA swears they have evidence that VA made this booking), our return flight CPT to JBG three months later was cancelled WITHOUT OUR KNOWLEDGE. If I hadn't been interested in knowing, the day before the flight, if the return BA flight had a meal, I would have showed up at the CPT airport in April and discovered that I had no way to get to the VA flight in JHB! As it was I spent an entire day trying to get back on the flight I'd already paid for. I advise EVERYONE who uses VA to reconfirm flights over and over. There is still no explanation for this. I will never NEVER fly VA again. They are not to be trusted."

Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."

Pros: "Delta is known to be one of the best airlines and they stand up to it in every flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The seat is the smallest business seat I have ever encountered. First and last time I fly the 767 with Delta. Can't believe the designers where so stupid"

Pros: "Amazing crewkeep"
Cons: "Keep going"

Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"

Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."

Pros: "Free movies on plane, quick boarding! Ok time :)"

Pros: "Like the fact I could watch 2-3 movies. Love the gluten free options for snacks."
Cons: "All of the couples were not assigned seats together. I've never seen anything so stupid. So before the plane took off, about four of us ladies from all over the back of the plane stood up and each jumbled a bunch of seats like a rubix cube so the men could then get up and go sit with their wives."

Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."

Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"

Cons: "That we did not have a seat assigned"

Pros: "The crew was outstanding, polite, and professional."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?"

Finally at 10:40 they announced that the flight would be delayed, even though we had figured it out by then. At 11 the flight crew showed up. We finally boarded at 11:30 and we arrived an hour late to our destination. They offered drinks to the 2 people flying "business class" (they were just sitting in the front but amongst the economy class seats) at the very beginning, but then waited to serve everyone else, but as it was late, most people were already sleeping. We arrived an hour late."

I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."

Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."

Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."

Pros: "Friendly attendants, entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort, food could have been better."

Cons: "Not to be late ,and not to loose my luggege"

Pros: "srfghj"
Cons: "fghjkl"

Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."

Pros: "On time, staff was nice."
Cons: "Not many options and not even a glass of champagne. That’s a minimal requirement. No sparkling water. Just very limited"

Pros: "The staff were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The food was awful and the option I wanted had run out. The entertainment was faulty and had to be reset several times. The comfort was below standard and needs to be improved."

Cons: "10 minutes late to the airport....... No help, no refund, no nothing. Never using you again"

Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"

Pros: "En deux mots, tout était médiocre, avion, « nourriture » (si on appeler ça comme ça) même les hôtesses travaillaient avec une sale gueule.. Très déçu d’Air France"
Cons: "Le capitain et l’aterrisage"

Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."
Cons: "It was loud, cold, the food was just okay at least my vegan meal was the bomb but it would have been better had when we booked the flight it allowed me to also choose this option for my husband. Since he is vegan as well."

Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."

Pros: "I like traveling with AirFrance in general."
Cons: "Terminal too far to go to loggage, walking about more than two miles after a long trip is not very easy AirFrance should have a better terminal at Charles-de-Gaulle!!! Have some missing stuff in my luggage!!!!"

Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"

Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."

Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant most of the time"
Cons: "Boarding process is total chaos Took 40 mins to.check in at desk , pre ordered for wheelchair Never showed ...total zoo Beds advertised as lie flat bu they are NOT 180 degree flat , legs hang down - bad for circulation"

Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."

Cons: "Screen broke half way through flight. Food was poor"

Pros: "great seat, good food and drink, pleasant staff, efficient boarding and exit."
Cons: "no complaints"

Cons: "There should be more layover time as I almost missed my flight and My luggage was delayed!!"

Cons: "Initially the flight from Lima was delayed for almost 1:30 and then we lost this connection then Airfrance rebooking to SAS they tell us to take all our luggage’s and check in again it’s was awful and really bad from then walk and spend time we suppose to be quite at home ... the worst was in SAS have ano system and for 1.5 kilos extras you might pay 33€ so after long day and wait, running everywhere with all my staff I see to eat a 11€ menu at the airport with not more explanation from Airfrance .. really bad and worst services.."

Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"

Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."

Pros: "Nice food Right in time Police and customs formalities easy"
Cons: "Poor comfort in business class No entertainment at all"

Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"

Pros: "Priority boarding"
Cons: "Premium economy seats do not recline, only slouch. One of our 2 seats wouldn't slouch more than half way. The entertainment options are extremely sparse and the screens are 4:3 ratio, tiny, and of such poor quality that they look like laptop monitors from 1999."

Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."

Pros: "Great food, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Comfort economy okis seats are wide, with good legroom, but did not recline and hard as a rock. Entertainment system hard to use, finding movies very tedious."

Cons: "Too crowded"

Cons: "The flight arrived late with no clear explanation as to why. Then there was no EU queue at immigration, so more time wasted."

Pros: "Free drinks and snack!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like that they still feed you and provide alcohol for free, even on a 40 min flight (unlike BA)."
Cons: "At one point during the flight I took a video out of my window with my camera, a member of the cabin crew barked at me in French. In bewilderment I asked her in English to repeat herself and she sarcastically repeated what she had said, in French, I asked for her to speak in English (which she had done to me previously on this Paris to London flight) yet again she scolded me in French. I was left absolutely none the wiser and it left a bad taste in my mouth."

Pros: "From the boarding process all the way to arrival it was a great experience overall. Brand new planes with free up to date movies. The economy seats truly recline (to what i was very surprised) and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "There's absolutely nothing I didn't like about it."

Pros: "My experience was great. The plane was comfortable and I enjoyed the food and the entertainment provided."
Cons: "Checking in at JFK took a while."

Pros: "The free warm beer was nice"
Cons: "Every single flight was delayed. The actual boarding was usually the time we were supposed to take off. Yes we would eventually make up the time in air, but I figured out they have some weird politics where they give people who are on standby to take other flights for a fee and potentially bump other people off who don't check into their flight super early. Something very "shady" happening with this airline."

Pros: "A tiempo!!!!!!! Gracias"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and efficient and we arrived 30 mins ahead of schedule which was a plus. Would definitely fly withy then again. Plus they offered inflight meals"

Cons: "Unfortunately, I was not able to go on this trip because I recently found out I am pregnant and the risk due to the current Zika virus makes traveling out of the question. Aeromexico was NOT understanding at all. Their only offer was a 1 year voucher from the time I purchased my ticket. I purchased my ticket in October 2015 (before the Zika outbreak and before being pregnant) and I will still be pregnant in October 2016 so that voucher is completely useless to me. I basically lost $900. Even though I repeatedly tried to explain my situation to customer service and had a letter from my doctor it didn't matter they just repeated their voucher line over and over. Needless to say I will NEVER purchase airline tickets from Aeromexico again and that is a real shame for them because I have a timeshare in Mexico which I plan on enjoying with my growing family for years to come."

Pros: "Food, AC, service"
Cons: "Wait time"

Pros: "Same as first leg of flight"
Cons: "The terrible experience of dealing with Flight nerwork"

Pros: "Flight crew and stewards were attentive and kind. Seat space on Boeing from LA to Mexico City was good. Ride was fairly smooth from LA to Mexico City."
Cons: "Kayak listed the ticket price at one rate, then when redirected the fees go up by another 100+ dollars! When we purchased the tickets, we were redirected to purchase through airfare.Com -- most unprofessional group I have ever dealt with! Our itinerary changed multiple times with various threatening emails that we must respond and accept new flight arrangements or else we will not have any flights and we'll be charged exhorbanaent fees. I tried cling and got reps that spoke little to no English and we're incredibly rude. We wold respond to the emails and still get more and more threstening emails. We were very concerned that any of it was legit. Kayak wanted nothing to do with it past advertising one price only to support a group that charged more. Such a scam. We had problems with the boarding passes printed. The first flight the staff was prevented from printing our tickets. They never told us why. Then for the second flight they called us to the boarding counter and required our tickets be reprinted. It was a bit of a hassle, but not earth shattering."

Pros: "Brand new planes, free tv and movies, and very comfortable seats. the flight crew was very friendly and takeoff and landing were right on time. Overall we were very impressed and would definitely fly Aeromexico again!!"

Pros: "Flight on time and professional crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Check in on line was diffucult and did not include opportunity to precheck a check in bag. Acwaste of time fir everyine in line"

Pros: "Good flight"

Pros: "Great flight. The only uncertainty with this level of tickets, is not knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. In general, it is worth what you pay for."
Cons: "Knowing the seats you will get in advance, even thought they are in the back of the plane. They can save the food!!! It's owfull."

Cons: "To have us sit together"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Smelly WC and crew"

Pros: "The plain got to Mexico before time I was traveling premier so the seats were confortable."
Cons: "Normally the crew is really nice .I found this One less attempt . The suitcase didn’t came our first like every time I fly business"

Cons: "Seats had even less legroom than the worst US airlines. I'm and 5'8" and I could barely fit my knees and once the person in front of me decided to recline his seat I couldn't even do that."

Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"

Pros: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."

Pros: "I had not used Aeromexico before and what a great experience it was! All the staff and crew were very helpful and courteous. The seats were comfortable with more leg room than other airlines in economy class. I will certainly use again and tell my friends about it."
Cons: "Excellent service throughout!"

Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."

Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."

Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"

Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"

Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."

Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"

Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."

Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."

Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"

Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."

Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"

Cons: "Lack of entertainment"

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "A horrible flight!!! We arrived at 5:04pm then we sat on the tamarac for 40 minutes before they could find a gate for us!!!! What a horrible lack of management!’ Who runs this airport/airline!? At the end they moved us to completly different terminal!!! Had to find a new transportation to the hotel!!! Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"

Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Surprise first class!"

Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"

Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."

Cons: "I had to document my luggage in every airport"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."

Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"

Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Delay, gate change, reissue of boarding pass. It was confusing. Mostly airport issues, not Aeromexico."

Pros: "The plane is very comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Que solo tengan cacahuates y el avión no tenía pinta de haber sido aseado antes de abordar"

Pros: "Good legroom. Staff, food, boarding. Landed ahead of expected time."
Cons: "The temperature varied rather; hot on the ground cold over the arctic. One toilet door was faulty. The entertainment system occasionally played up."

Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing."
Cons: "The seats, my Gawd...felt like I was sitting on marbles. And this priority board issue. Why say you have priority boarding and be the third zone???"

Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."
Cons: "i got there around 5am for a 7am flight. it took those 2 hours to check me in. and then ran to the plane so i would not miss it."

Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "Late boatding"
