We had a few flights booked on this trip with Interjet as they were extremely cheap and had decent times etc. Never having flown with them before, we weren’t sure exactly what to expect but the website luggage policy was pretty amazing:
“In all national and international destinations, you can check up to * 75 kg of luggage per passenger distributed in two suitcases (no suitcase can weigh more than 25 kg). As part of your baggage you can carry your pet, surfboard, bicycle, or your musical instrument.
If you get to exceed your baggage allowance, the cost per additional kg is $ 50 MXN national stations and $ 5.00 USD on international stations. If you need to travel with additional luggage, please check in counter that no limitation of space in the cabin baggage.”
We have now travelled from Cancun to Mexico City and on again to Oaxaca, back to Mexico City and then to San Jose, Costa Rica. Each time we boarded in a very laid back and relaxed manner. No one rushed or pushed in the craze to be able to get their huge carry on in the tiny space that always runs out. In fact there was very little carry on luggage brought on. The flights were about ¾ full and we were stunned with the amount of leg-room. My 6’4” son could spread out easily. I have never had this much space even on international flights. This is from their website:
“You can be up to 20% more space between rows! For us it is very important your convenience so we decided to remove up to 30 seats in each of our aircraft.
The most comfortable space consists of 34 inches between rows of seats , this allows you to stretch your legs and travel in comfort. The passenger in front of you, you can recline the seat without bothering you .
You can also choose your seat at the time of purchase of your flight, at no additional cost .
In short, the more comfortable space and seat selection at no extra cost , what you see is what you pay.”
And then to top it off the drinks and snacks were FREE – including alcohol; wine/beer and liquor. It was a little early for my gin and tonic but it would have been free even on the 35-minute flights.
Flight attendants and check in people were friendly and polite too.
I can honestly say this was a wonderful experience and I am so glad to be flying them again. Oh and the flights from DF to Oaxaca were about $45 per person (remember all that includes loads of luggage/animals and FREE booze:) They are flying from the US now so watch out for this airline.
And no — we don’t have any freebies for saying this!
