An international flight with a chicken sandwich and fruit is low quality. In comparison, Avianca provided a gourmet meal and a Salvatore Farragamo flight gift with lotions, eye covers, ear plugs, pen, and tissue.
There was not food or entertainment. It was a short fly.
The check in process here in Phoenix was horrible. Incompetent agents, lack of staff, management indecisive, and lack of any urgency for passengers whose flights were set to leave. The flight crew were tired and stressed though that could be Delta's fault. The pilot was a pro! Thank you for the smooth flight!
The staff was good, movies were good, snacks provided were OK, some type of sandwich would be nice on these longer flights.
Pros: "Good service amazing crew clean airplane good cleaning protocols"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Movies on any flight is great."
Pros: "My flight got delayed twice. Had to get rebooked."
Cons: "I think all was very good"
Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally nice. Live DISH TV unexpected and appreciated."
Pros: "Plane was held for at least 40+ min for additional passengers. I was in First Class and no drinks were offered until another passenger complained and then the flight team took a a burden to have to offer anything."
Cons: "New Flight crew."
Pros: "I liked the choices of movies"
Cons: "The seats were dirty and the snack choices are not healthy at all."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The space given in the seats is just getting ridiculous. The person in front of me reclined and hit my left knee. It hurt for three days even with my doing physical therapy and exercises."
Pros: "Great airline. Crew was great. Comfort was good. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Well the days of reclining seats are over."
Pros: "The flight was on time, with no unanticipated problems."
Cons: "Traveling first class in the CRJ commuter planes is really just coach as it was 15 years ago."
Cons: "Wifi was completely useless. I prefer to pay to get simething."
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delayed"
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Pros: "The seats are probably the most comfy of all the flights I’ve taken. All the crew was super nice."
Cons: "On my delta app it said we’d have the TVs again but we didn’t have any this time."
Cons: "4 hour delay on take-off and despite that my luggage didn't make it onto the flight."
Pros: "The entire process was easy and seamless. The flight staff was professional and accommodating. Free liquor. Great food."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 75 min because the plane wouldnt start. A differernt aircraft was needed to resume ops."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Late departure. Almost missed connection. Even though we planned a decent amount of time between flights. Always something causing delays when we leave from Newark."
Cons: "The seats were very close together which made for an uncomfortable experience due my knee injury and upcoming surgery."
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Everything was great, flight attendants were awesome"
Pros: "I like Delta's onboard entertainment, Delta Studio. I also like that I can use wifi messaging onboard. The flight attendants did an excellent job as usual. I was in First Class so that was nice. I like the ice cream for dessert. I like the snack variety in First Class."
Cons: "For first class the seat pitch is not great. I had a steak, it was dry. The rest of the meal was OK."
Pros: "Not applied"
Cons: "Not applied"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."

Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was courtesy"
Cons: "1hour delay from departing LAX runway - not good"
Pros: "Smooth, easy, still long"
Cons: "Still long"
Cons: "Got stuck for two hours sitting in the plane because the computer systems went down."
Pros: "The new delta seats are super uncomfortable and zero legroom. When you put the seat back back the butt part goes forward and your knees are crunched in front of you. The cushion also angles down its horrible. They gave a couple rows extra room and now charge more for them while crunching every other seat together."
Cons: "Seats and legroom horrible"
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Don't change gates at the last minute.
The planes are CRAMPED for sure.. you know this. Seems like you're nickeling and diming us to make money... pay to board first? Pay to upgrade, Pay for luggage... this is getting ridiculous. No wonder why people fly Southwest...
Tarifas muy altas...servicio de silla de ruedas excelente
The two flight attendants in this flight were quite good, Lindsey and Mike. They did a great job being proactive and engaged appropriately.
Everything went smoothly except the 15 minute wait for ground crew to move the jet bridge to let us off the plane.
Little space between seating
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connection"
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Pros: "After couple or three hours the seat get to be a pain on the tailbone. Also I am 6'2" so already a bit of squeeze. Can't stretch out legs. Was an Airbus 319"
Cons: "Not much other than more room and more cushion in seats. Quick boarding in group 4, friendly crew, the Taco salad was actually pretty good. Watched 2 movies, both still premium on the pay channels."
Pros: "Orderly boarding and on time."
Cons: "Nothing, all was great."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "Terrible service from crew. Bad odors from bathrooms."
Pros: "Staff were nice and courteous."
Cons: "The plane was very old and didn't have entertainment for a 7 hour international flight. Seems like AA is stuck in the past."
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Pros: "Landing and deplaning"
Cons: "Literally everything else"
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with zero notice and I almost ended up on a 18 hour layover which would have resulted me in missing work. The staff was very unsympathetic and not helpful. There were 10 people behind the counter and nobody could help us. They were all just spacing out. Ultimately, I was placed on the flight, but had to rush to every single one of my four connecting flights. I am a frequent traveler but this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. Avianca should be embarrassed to be associated with star alliances."
Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "Flight network sent an incorrect name to the airline and i had to go under so much trouble the day before just to correct itz"
Pros: "Everything but the boarding."
Cons: "The boarding seemed to take forever. The crew could’ve performed the boarding process while getting the people who were waiting for upgrades at the same time. Splitting work could’ve worked and to not let all of us wait."
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane was too old. It is shameful. Avianca should stop using this plane"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"
Pros: "Very little legroom for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Pros: "I can't comment on food or entertainment and there is no N/A option. I did not purchase food or use the wifi for entertainment. The seat I upgraded to was comfortable and spacious even if it didn't recline (I sat in front of the OWWE)."
Pros: "In seat entertainment screen and USB charger. The chicken salad"
Cons: "Flight crew were rude, wasn't sitting next to my partner on the same booking for both flights. Had to pay for wine, they couldn't even give just one complimentary wine with dinner. Dinner was bad except the small chicken salad was good"
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Pros: "Great service. With FOOD!!! Real Food! The entertainment system was great ( I played most of the flight) On time!"
Pros: "Food was goof"
Cons: "Staff never smiled or even said hello. May be culture but better training is needed."
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Pros: "They got us seats on a Latam flight later in the day."
Cons: "I don't like being bumped from a flight when you have e-tix in hand from a month previous purchase for three travelers."
Pros: "La puntualidad de los vuelos."
Cons: "El vuelo lo operaba American Airlines y no parecía una línea con alianza de vuelo ..chek-in automatizado no apareció mi boarding así que hacer fila para resolver..afortunadamente lo hicieron de una."
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Pros: "Great food and headphones"
Everything was great! Felt clean and virus free.
Pros: "Great service from everyone."
Cons: "The boarding and social distancing being funny with the process"
Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."
Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Upgrade seating"
Cons: "We had to wait for about seven hours at the airport because the flight was delayed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost five hours."
Cons: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "We were early. We sat together"
Cons: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "Despite dozens of empty seats in Economy Plus, flight attendants refused to allow anyone to move into the 8 vacant rows keeping us crowded in coach economy."
Pros: "The plane was not too crowded"
Cons: "We could have been on time"
Pros: "Smaller plane was awesome. Flight service great. Checkin easy."
Cons: "We are okay with seat area but would ask that united freeze seat backs. The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."
Cons: "A very old B757. late departure. No explanation."
Pros: "Left on time, friendly crew, comfy flight."
Cons: "For reasons I still don’t understand my baggage didn’t travel with me and I was not able to get it until several days later"

Cons: "No entertiment, no snack only little bag of pretzels"
Cons: "We were delayed by more than 6 hours."
Cons: "The delays of airplanes making one almost miss a connecting flight and then arrive at destination super late inconveniencing everyone."
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Pros: "The flight attendants very sincere & nice. I love that their was a lot of leg room on the flight as well."
Cons: "There was no entertainment alternatives."
Pros: "Great entertainment system"
Cons: "Only 1 meal and they continue to run out of options."
Pros: "How can you overbook a flight?! Thank god someone gave up their seat for me or I would have missed my connecting flight in Chicago. I paid $600 and was told because I'm basic economy I wasn't guarenteed a seat. Terrible!! And then I couldn't use my backpack (small school sized) as my personal bag and had to pay the $25 to check it! Come on United."
Pros: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Cons: "The stupid led by the unwilling."
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Cons: "Based on my treatment, I will never fly United again."
Cons: "AC was extremely cold"
Pros: "I had a terrible time flying from IAH to Pensacola with United. I was flying on Christmas Day and there were not enough employees from United to help the customers. One of United employees completely disregarded me when I needed help, and I ended up missing my flight."
Pros: "Due to weather delays "not able to accommodate" Service representative had an attitude. I understand there are a lot of issues, but it's their job in customer service and if anyone should be upset it should be the customer for not being able to make their flight as scheduled."
Pros: "Trip and treatment were ok... but tv is way expensive. Avianca offers you a wide range of movies and tv series for free."
Pros: "Head Flight Attendant Lynn gave 1st class service! She was a delight."
Pros: "My flight was on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Literally no leg room for me. It was a terrible time for me, especially since I was in the middle seat."
Cons: "Flight was delayed not enough information. Missed connection."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, very firm, back of seat was like leaning against a piece of wood. OK for this short flight, longer flight would have been extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "They gave us free entertainment"
Cons: "We took two hours in taking off"
Cons: "They boarded the plane when they knew they had mechanical issues. Passengers then sat on a hot plane at the terminal for almost 2 hours before departing."
Pros: "Good Speedy trip very awesome Pleasant helpful people"
Cons: "when I suggested window seat I thought I would have it throughout the entire flight that was pretty much the only disappointing thing about the whole trip"
Pros: "Front seat, got off the plane quickly"
Cons: "Too cold!"
Pros: "I like the small size. The food and drink are so minimal it's hard to rate. The flight attendants were courteous and efficient. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The bathroom was more "used" than usual..."
Pros: "I like very much, nice and smooth, I'll recommend this company, food was good attendant excellent and friendly crew. Thank you it was a pleasure travel with United Airlines"
Pros: "We flew to Minneapolis via Atlanta due to snowstorm that severly impacted Newark."
Cons: "I've been on a lot of different planes but this plane was the most cramped I've ever been on. It seemed like they tried to fill every small space with an even smaller chair. I am a small girl but even I felt like I was running in to everything so I can only imagine how larger people felt."
