Beware of Interjet's prices to Central and South America - be sure to do the math

Sometime last year, Interjet restructured their bag fees.

Like a lot of low cost carriers, they charge extra for checked baggage.

However, with Interjet, you pay per segment. And all of Interjet's flights from Vancouver to Central and South America route through Mexico City.

For example, with a roundtrip flight from Vancouver to Lima, Peru you would pay the following bag fees:

Vancouver to Mexico City - $36 CAD
Mexico City to Lima - $36 CAD

Lima to Mexico City - $36 CAD
Mexico City to Vancouver - $36 CAD

-- $144 in bag fees for a roundtrip flight.

By structuring their bag fees this way, Interjet can make their fares to Central and South America appear a lot cheaper than other airlines in the search engines....

...when in reality they are priced about the same.

So be sure to do the math first when comparing Interjet's prices to Central and South America against other airlines.

    Interjet is by far the worst airline I have ever used. If you have a choice definitely do not use this airline. They left me stranded in Mexico City because their connecting flight was late. They informed me that I would have to wait 24 hours until my next flight and offed no accommodations and refused to refund me. I was forced to find my own way home.

    Dido. Interjet changed the flight time for hours without evening informing me.

    And one day before departure, I used the Interject App to check whether the flight was on time. Guess what? Its App indicates there was no such a flight tomorrow!!! I then used the same App to check how I can buy a ticket for tomorrow's flight. Now the flight appeared to be there and on time.

    The lesson: Interjet will take you to your destinations. That's all right; however, there will be a lot of hiccups along the way. Be prepare for them psychologically.

    Icelandair did the same thing for the recent flights to Paris through Reykjavik. $130 for a checked bag, PER LEG. There are two legs each way - to and from Paris, therefore $260 EACH WAY for a checked bag. Ridiculous.

    Avoid INTERJET at all costs!!! Many delays,no notifications.
    Left me and kids in limbo at MEX (avoid that airport at all costs too). Zero support. Didn't even wanted to talk to me. Without escalating requested to talk to supervisor,they called airport security.
    Customer service doesn't exist.Numerous attempts to get through to various Customer Service number. Didnt get through once. Longest wait 90min.Currently trying to find Canadian rep of the airline for legal claim. Mexican based office doesn't care. Welcome to the world of lawlessness. Absolute sham. Do not entrust your travel and especially yourself and family to that Mexican dodgy outfit.
