Avoid Travel With Aeromexico

Hello Everybody,

Avoid Traveling with Aeromexico, they don’t keep their word.

Just returned from my annual trip to Europe, everything was great and as I do enjoy traveling, however its difficult for anybody the experience of taking several flights for several hours to get from Puerto Vallarta to Lyon France but that’s the way it is. All of my departures flight were great and on time, however 1 of the return flights (the last one) from Mexico city to Puerto Vallarta was not what I will wish for anyone to experience after traveling for 15 to 20 hours.

And here it’s the Story, I arrived from Europe in British Airways Sept 4th 2010 on time and was a good experience then we took a flight from Mexico City to PV living on time at 9.30 pm Flight #192 AEROMEXICO and about 15 minutes of landing the crew and captain told us that we cannot land in Puerto Vallarta due the weather conditions (Understandable) and we will have to go to Guadalajara. Then now we are in Guadalajara waiting inside the plane with no news from the crew for over an hour, then after 1 hour they told us that if anybody from the plane will want to get off in Guadalajara it’s OK with them but we will have to cover our Hotel and food expenses, or otherwise we will go back to Mexico City and Aero Mexico will provide the Hotel and 1 meal as other airlines do. We all agree to come back to Mexico City (About 40 people) and after 1 more hour the captain decided to go back to Mexico city. So we are now arriving in Mexico at 1:45 AM and my first thing to ask to the Aero Mexico airport staff as I got off the plane, was: Where is the Hotel that you are going to provide us and they said I am sorry we don’t know anything about Hotel or meal, so I gather some of the people traveling with me and we all went with the only 2 staff members of Aero Mexico to let them know why we decide to come back to Mexico city after 4 hours and not got off in GDL.

They politely said that, that is not their responsibility and will not provide us with Hotel or meal. So now we are all the plane travelers gather in the gate from where we came out waiting for the Captain and crew to ask them why he said that and his first response was I did not said that and laugh, so at this point some of the Travelers were getting really up sad and the captain called the Police on us.

We all decided to come down and focus on getting another flight from Aero Mexico for the day after, which took them over an hour to give us all the new boarding passes.

So by 3 am we had our boarding passes for the next morning at 8.30 am Flight #140 AEROMEXICO. Some of the Travelers decided to wait at the airport and some people and me went to Hotel International Airport witch charge us $950 pesos-night for 2 to 3 hours of sleep.

Some of the Travelers were so up sad that couldn’t even sleep, some of them said that they will sue Aero Mexico, some said that will go to PROFECO (Consumer protection office) and I said that I will write about them as I am doing it right now.

So if you are a Foreigner or Mexican and want to avoid a situation that we have, I will advise you to Try a different Airline, there are several options now in Mexico with very competitive and cheap prices, some of them are: INTERJET, VOLARIS, VIVAAEROBUS, etc.

If anybody will want to probe if this review its real, I have a Video that I took as we are all been told by police to come down or will be arrested, and I have Boarding pass receipt and Hotel INVOICE.

How Essential Are Mover Reviews?

Mover reviews have made moving a lot easier for us. Most of us are often struck with a single question & that is: are moving companies’ reviews helping people to move out to places? The answer is yes. The professional movers & packers companies are these days offering people both short & long distance moving service. When we would like to move from one place to another either due to personal or professional reason, these moving companies are proving out to be very helpful. But we can’t blindly trust all moving companies as some of them would be scammers. These scammers tend to cheat us on every occasion we hire them. Based on certain points they develop a strategy so as to grab our attention. Some of them are:

1. They offer moving service for low price. 2. We often get fascinated by their low moving cost & expect that they will give us great service. 3. The scam moving companies are not registered ones & don’t have their own official premises. They keep on using their marketing knowledge & persuading customers to hire their service which is completely illegal. 4. Once a scam company gets possession of our valuable goods, it becomes rude & demands for more money.

The scam moving companies wisely use the above mentioned tricks & keep on extracting money from the customers. This is the only reason why the mover reviews have become so popular in recent days. The moving companies’ reviews are permitting customers to quickly compare the service, pricing & efficiency of different moving companies. The personal views or opinions of customers who have already hired the services from a specific moving company matter a lot for those who are about to do that. The moving service on offer may be either bad or good. If the customer is satisfied with the service of a moving company then he/she will like others to know about it. That’s why they will write positive movers reviews & consider posting them in popular review sites. However, the customer will not hesitate to post negative reviews or comments incase he/she is not satisfied with the service of the company.

Another important thing is that professional writers can be employed to write moving companies reviews. That’s why you need to cross check before relying on certain mover reviews. As a part of marketing strategy, moving companies employ professional copywriters to help them write good movers review & improve their image on the basis of it. Some of the mover review sites don’t bother to verify the realism of these review posters. And it becomes very hard to differentiate a genuine mover review from an artificial one. However, very few reliable websites are there who check the positive as well as negative remarks made on the service of moving companies before including them in their sites.

The credibility of a moving company can be established from reports such as Rip Off Report & Better Business Bureau. These reports will help us get the exact status of the moving company along with negative reviews if any. In this way, mover reviews published on popular review sites will help us find out a suitable moving company.

More Cultural Reflections

I have spent the last week still sick from whatever bug I picked up in Vietnam.

I began my travel blogs with a post from the Korean airport about cultural differences. I don’t think anything could have better highlighted such differences than seeking medical help in Vietnam and Korea before returning home to the U.S.

On my last day in Vietnam, the concierge of my hotel in Hanoi directed me to a clinic down the street. When I got there, the door was locked, even though the sign in the window said “open” and I could clearly see someone sitting behind a desk inside. I knocked a few times and was about to give up when the figure inside stirred, then slowly made its way to the door to let me in. The door opened, and I stepped into a shabby but clean room with a desk piled with books, two chairs, and a cabinet stacked with drug samples. The doctor was a small woman wearing a labcoat and slippers embroidered with the logo of the Daewoo hotel (where I happened to be staying). She had clearly been sleeping.

She spoke little English, so we had difficulty communicating. But her eyes lit up when I said the word “stomach,” and she said, “Okay, okay, I help.” She opened a paperback volume on her desk and ran her finger down the page until stopping, reading something, and then slamming the book shut. She then dug through the pile of samples on the cabinet and eventually found two bubble packs of pills. I paid about $4 and left with two prescriptions that I had no idea how to take. I realized as I left that she hadn’t taken my temperature.

Later, in my hotel room, I looked up the names of the prescriptions online. Both packages were in French, so it took quite a while to find information on them in English. In the process, I realized one had already expired. Online searching revealed that both were widely regarded as placebos and could cause fairly severe side effects. I decided not to take them.

I hesitate to draw conclusions based on my experience at a single clinic, but I got the overwhelming impression while staying there that we were acting out a scene from a bad American medical drama. The props (labcoat, drugs, manuals), characters (doctor, patient), and language (“stomach”) were all present, but were only symbolic as linguistic and cultural barriers prevented a substantive exchange.

In a cab on the way to the airport several hours later, my Vietnamese host suggested that my illness was caused by an internal imbalance between yin and yang; constant travel, unusual sleep schedules, and being away from my husband had disrupted the harmony of my body and caused illness. He made a sharp, chopping motion on my neck and back to restore balance, recounting times he had used this massage to help other visitors to Vietnam suffering a similar affliction. (Most interestingly, he had given the same massage to Emily Morrison, the daughter of Norman Morrison, the Quaker who famously set himself ablaze beneath McNamara’s window at the Pentagon to protest the Vietnam war. During Emily’s first visit to Vietnam, she became quite ill at Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum, but her symptoms were eased by the same massage I was receiving.)

This massage seemed no less plausible a treatment than expired French placebos, and I gladly submitted to my host’s almost painful chopping at my back and neck. I suppose I was hopeful not only that my queasiness would subside, but that I would also witness some sort of triumph of traditional Vietnamese medical practices over a Vietnamese attempt to mimic American medicine (as I thought I’d seen in the clinic). I confess I’ve become a little skeptical about American medicine lately, particularly its propensity to medicate every conceivable condition – for example, this weekend I saw a commercial for a drug to help “restless leg syndrome.”

However, by the time I landed in Seoul, I was feeling terrible. The Seoul airport has a hospital in its basement, and an airport employee kindly wrote for me in Korean on a scrap of paper, “I want to go to the hospital.” I showed this paper to every official I encountered on my way to the hospital – which, it turns out, required leaving the airport altogether – and it seemed to convince customs, passport control, and airport security that I required no special scrutiny. Once in the hospital, my experience was remarkably similar to that in Vietnam, despite the significantly more sterile environment. Once again, I was given two prescriptions that I could not read and did not know how to take. This time, frightened by the prospect of feeling sick for an entire 13 hour flight, I took both before boarding my plane to the U.S. and hoped for the best.

As much as I wished to understand Vietnamese medical beliefs, I am American, and I was relieved to finally arrive in Atlanta and visit the airport clinic. There, I could communicate in English; the doctor acted predictably aloof and technical; and the treatment, an IV, was thoroughly communicated and matter-of-factly administered. The experience lacked the novelty and personal nature of my taxicab massage in Vietnam, but it was effective and, for all its sterile detachment, comforting.

It is strange enough to step inside another culture’s concept of health and medicine, stranger still to do so without any means to communicate about that concept. So I left Vietnam much the way I entered it: reflecting on cultural assumptions and differences, this time made much more immediate and personal as my physical well-being depended on successfully negotiating those differences.

(If you are at all interested in this topic, please read Ann Fadiman’s wonderful book The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, about a family of Lao Hmong refugees seeking medical attention in the U.S.)

Lying in bed all week gave me plenty of time to reflect, and now that I am feeling better (i.e., I can type without feeling nauseated), I have some final thoughts on Vietnam that I hope to type today or tomorrow.
