Two-hour delay followed by 30(!) min of waiting for the luggage bags just to roll...Needless to say that I've missed my next flight. I had to order another flight that took off only 16 hours later, costing me more than 1,100 dollar and extra work day. I know that you're trying to be smart with your money by flying with...

Flying a Mexican charter airline made me nervous, but I had a great experience! Everyone spoke English very well, and we got snacks and drinks. The snacks and drinks were in Spanish, but that didn’t matter. Everyone was extremely nice and I would definitely use this airline again.

Warning: high risk of not flying! Viva aerobús exceed their allowed overbooking percentage. There is a very high risk that your flight will be overbooked, not having a seat allocated and being told you cannot board the plane. Although overbooking is allowed, viva aerobús exceed their allocated percentage of overbooking and give no indication that your flight may be overbooked....

I have taken Viva on other occasions at it usually has good prices but careful with all the extras. On one of our tickets I clicked on extra weight just to see how much it cost and I couldn't get it off afterwards. The plane seemed new and service was very good for the hour flight. No free drinks or...

But on the day of the flight, I get a phone call from my mother saying that they were told that the flight was over weight and couldn't let anyone on anymore. Then they said that the flight was overbooked and gave us and explanation that blamed...

Do not take this airline ever. It’s thievery. They never sent me emails in English and charge hidden fees for printing a boarding pass. Understandable if you charge for water and stuff but for boarding pass. Very disappointed and will never fly with them

Viva Aerobus supposed to be an LCC carrier, so I dont expect snacks and maybe some limitations in baggage, thats alright, but is not cheap and in my flight, we had to change planes when we were already on board. We should depart around 17:30 but we depart around 19:00 and finally we arrive at hour hotel around 23:00... Talking...

This is definitely the worst airline I ever flew with. Two flights two delays, with no excuses, no explications. Lack of respect to us who bought the flight for those specific time and had to schedule to be on time at the airport. I would recommend to book with other airlines.
