Have VivaAerobus flights from PE to Mc gotten more reliable

I have already booked this flight to go meet a tour in Mex. City and I'm hoping their service has gotten more reliable since a post here in August. Anyone used them recently? I also have friends getting ready to use them.

You may want to read this recent post on the Huatulco forum regarding VivaAerobus. It doesn't look good!

Please let me know how was your experience with this airline. I am planning to fly back from PE to Mc in June. I also saw they offer the express pass...similar to Southwest Airlines early bird so you can pick your seats and board before anyone else.

Thanks.

I flew into PE on VivoAerobus Jan 8 - no problems at all. Would fly them again without hesitation. Plane wasn't very full so even without reserved seating I had a window seat and a whole row to myself. It's only an hour in the air, so no frills was fine with me...

I've flown several times with VivaAerobus, each way ... no problemas but I guess there's always a first time. So far, so good. Will be flying out with them again end of April. Buy the VIP Pass for ease of check-in and boarding for the MEX to PXM leg.

Bumping up this post again - how early is early enough to get in to the airport before the flight?

If my stop-over in Mexico City is 2-3 hours, will this be long enough for me to change for Viva?

I'm flying in from NYC, and if I book as a single journey the travel time is 22 hours (without the option for a direct flight from NY) whereas if I book two separate flights (NY-MC, MC-PE) then I can choose direct flights to MC from JFK.

The same goes for my departing trip, I'll be flying to Cabo via MC.

For context, I'm booking these flights from Australia.

effseedee - you will have to clear immigration, collect bags, clear customs in Mexico City, exit the secure area and line up for check in at Vivaaerobus. If you have checked in online (Vivaaerobus) and are booked VivaRegular you can do this 45 minutes before departure - if not, then it is 2 hours. Depending on your incoming airline you may have to change terminals which can take 20-30 minutes. Having missed my last 2 connections because of late flights (despite having a long layover time) I am a bit paranoid (!) so personally I would opt for more time is possible.

Thanks SteveMex. That's really valuable information to know! Looks like we may have to stay overnight in MC just in case.
