Based on some of the comments when I announced that I had booked a trip to Paris on Aeromexico, I was bracing myself for horrific service and inedible food. As it turned out, my flight on Aeromexico wasn’t bad at all.
Granted, this was only a three hour flight from Los Angeles to Mexico City aboard a 737-800. Even so, I noticed a few things. Service was very good: friendly, warm, and attentive. The plane was was also very clean: I found no crumbs or dirt around my seat. Finally, onboard Gogo wi-fi worked like a charm and the IFE library available in the seatback monitor was impressive. The wi-fi particularly impressed me. I wasn’t expecting it and it turned out to be fast and operational the entire flight.
The meal…well, I’ve had better. I ordered “carne” thinking it would be piece of steak or at least short ribs. It turned out to be a hamburger patty…with no cheese or bread. It was fine: fairly lean and a nice source of protein. While I would have preferred some queso fresco over the red wine sauce, the sauce did have a good flavor. The salad was large and dessert included two small chocolate squares.
Ok, one Aeromexico flight down, one to go. The first one went well, but the longhaul to Paris aboard the 787-9 is next. Stay tuned for a full flight review in my upcoming trip report.
