Cons: "I was 40 minutes late, the crew was disrespectful with a little girl, also de pilot when he didn’t explain why we were late."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Keep up the awesome work everyone does"
Pros: "Just the fact that I’m glad to make it home."
Cons: "The entire flight ordeal. From beginning to end."
Pros: "Nothing. The staff was rude. Avianca was understaffed for holidsys"
Cons: "Poor entertainment. Lousy service. I spoke with manager Eva Maria, and she could care less. I have booked at least 12 flights on Avianca in the last two years. Service was shameful"
Pros: "Nothing other than the schedule fit my needs."
Cons: "I have never experienced such rude and lazy flight attendants. On all 3 flights it was over an hour into the flight before they would come around to offer a drink. As soon as they were done with the food service they closed the curtains and sat the rest of the flight. This is in business class."
Pros: "absolutley nothing, total bullshit airline. Was delayed going, and was cancelled twice on return trip."
Cons: "1. Departure flight was delayed over four hours in El Salvador. Had to be put on another airline and they lost my luggage. 2. Return flight was cancelled not once, but twice. Spent over 27 hours in airport before I finally began flying. WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR MY HASSLE and lost money on hotels and lost wages."
Cons: "Delayed and terrible service"
Cons: "The checking process at the counter in Lima was horrible,they moved me to another flight saying that mine was delayed. Once they moved me to Alan they couldn’t check me in and send me back to Avianca, during that process they lost my suitcases. I arrived to Orlando with no clue where my suitcases where and I was traveling g with to young kids. Although I recovered my suitcases I haven’t heard a follow up."
Pros: "Comfort and service"
Pros: "The flight was on time. Family boarding was super helpful when traveling with a toddler. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The seat assigned to my daughter had a faulty life jacket and the crew wanted our family to split up. My daughter is 2 and didn't like that her dad was moving somewhere else as we were taking off. Since the crew member didn't want to ask the individual sitting next to me, I asked if she would mind moving so that our family could stay together."
Pros: "First class looks nice."
Cons: "More than one hour of delay in boarding. The seats very uncomfortable for a ten hour+ flight."
Pros: "Punctuality and service. Great flight"
Cons: "that we could not recline the chairs, there were no entertainment available, that the flight was delayed 2 hours, sorry to complain but this was the first time, Avianca failed overall."
Pros: "Food was the only good thing"
Cons: "The plain was too old, it didn't have entertainment for a flight that long, seats were uncomfortable, we left almost two hours later, no charging ports on the plain, a really bad experience"
Cons: "El operador de avianca es unbdesatre. Aviones incómodos y sin confort . Muy malo!"
Pros: "I must recognize I am very pleased with what Avianca offer’s on this flight. The aircraft (Dreamliner) is in a perfect shape, crew is very kind and food was great. I definitely suggest to invest a little bit more of money and try to travel Business Class so you can get the whole experience: quick/easy check-in, VIP Lounge and great flight. Well done Avianca, Congratulations!"
Cons: "More communication needed! I was randomly relocated and searched by airport security...fine, but at least some information should be provided to husbands or traveling companions. We are seniors, my husband is not going to leave me in a foreign country . My boarding pass was taken , after the search I was told to get on the plane. My husband was provided no information until it was his turn to board ,he was panicked... The airline should communicate with traveling companions the procedure ! I am an retired airline employee, we realize that airport security is not in your hands but communication would keep family members calm. We had a wonderful time in Columbia but this does nothing good for a Country that wants more Tourism."
Cons: "For some reason I wasn’t able to select our seats using the Avianca app. I had to call the day before and we unfortunately were given 2 middle seats. I don’t mind one middle and an aisle. Felt like we weren’t given options."
Pros: "They serve a lot of food, and if you need a drink that would not be a problem..."
Cons: "The chairs were not comfortable at all"
Cons: "Is the Worst; i wait almost Four hours to take the flight from madrid!!! I lost the flight to valencia an the company give me another flight at 10:50 pm im going to arrive un valencia 12 am!!!! Im angry"
Cons: "Got to the airport and they told me my flight was cancelled without prior notice. The ticketing agent told me they would fly me to an airport 40 minutes from Cartatenga. It ended up being 2.5 hours away. Just terrible."
Cons: "For price they dont give food."
Pros: "In seat entertainment. Staff was lovely and helpful. Ease of checking me in when my flight was delayed."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Didn't like how the plane was delayed by 45 minutes. The airport staff didn't inform us of the delay nor did the crew staff as we were arriving to Cali. Especially if the crew staff knew before hand that there next flight was going to Cartagena."
Pros: "The 787 was very comfortable and new. Plenty of food. The ground staff compensated us for our lost bags and had them delivered to our hotel the next day."
Cons: "The lost bags."
Pros: "It was on time, departing and arriving. Perfect time."
Cons: "It's a hard hour, 3 am flight, and the crew is super hostile, should be a little nicer, not only because is part of their job, deal with people, also because is a time when people is tired."
Pros: "Business class in Avianca is by far one of the best in Latinamerica. Very comfortable and great service"
Pros: "SEAT comfort variety of movies"
Cons: "Por hacer mantenimiento a ultimo minuto se atraso el vurlo mas de 2 horas. Perdi mi conexion a barcelona Avianca no le importa que uno pierda la conexion ya que ellos le tiran el problema a iberia, asi no responden"
Pros: "The check in staff moved us to an earlier flight from Cartegna to Bigots so we wouldn't have to rush to make our Bogita to New York flight. Very nice of them & much appreciated. We flew Avianca 8 times over the past 11 days thru Peru & Colombia & had great experiences all the way around."
Cons: "I know the space for legs is not great, but in a flight this long, with a kid, and none of the TVs working... Not cool."
Cons: "The screen in my daughter's seat did not work for the entire duration of the flight. It is the second time that something similar happens to my family or me while flying in this airline in the last two months."
Cons: "Plane is not well equiped."
Pros: "Great crew, they do what they can to make you comfortable. My cocktail was free"
Cons: "Food is okay, but not great"
Catering was minimal. Would have liked a small bite to eat and more variety in drinks.
Food is few and lack of taste.
Good could be better. Leg space too
Latam never said that I needed a PCR test 24 hours prior to traveling. I got an email saying “72 hours”. I had to leave the airport in Santiago, pay $45 for a taxi and pay $50 for a rapid test and then rush back to the airport. The Santiago flight left late and I lost my JFK connection to SFO. Alaska air couldn’t help. I had to buy a new ticket
The airline is terrible. They did not allow me to check in a bag ahead of time for my flight. I checked when I bought the ticket, I checked weeks before, I checked each day leading up to the day of my flight if I could add a checked bag and Latam kept telling me I had to do it at the airport when I check in. When I got to the airport they over charged me and told me I could have avoided the charge of $130 if I had paid ahead of time. When I explained that I tried and was told to do it at the airport, they gave me terrible excuses and pretty much told me too bad and robbed me of $130. I will never fly Latam again.
Pros: "I never flew to Rome because of LATAM!"
Cons: "Flying home"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"
Pros: "Super friendly crew and great seats."
Pros: "Helpful crews"
Cons: "self-serve bag drop to speed up the bag drop process"
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Cons: "I could have been warned that you need to get a pass to go to Hanga Roa before you can board. I had checked because I had heard there was a fee but upon investigation, it was said that this requirement had been eliminated. Wrong!! You still need the pass but you don’t get charged a fee. The extra time required for this tedious meant we missed our chance to check bags and do incurred hundreds of dollars more to get on the same flight the next day. No Bueno!!! This should be highlighted up front!!"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Flight on time Departure & arrival"
Cons: "Two seats in every set of rows"
Cons: "Great service, excellent food, very good quality, comfortable, thanks so much for everything. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
Pros: "Flight was on time; the plane was clean and well-lit - it actually looked new. Entertainment selection was also surprisingly filled with new movies. The headrest was also very comfortable."
Cons: "Not necessarily a critique, but I did find it very odd, and non-standard, that the all the overhead bins were closed during boarding. It gave the impression that they were all full, when in fact, they were all empty. Planes should have the overhead compartments all open until everyone is on board so people can see what space is available."
Pros: "The food was good"
Cons: "baggage delivery"
Pros: "SEATs and crew"
Cons: "Food was almost nothing, for a 3hr flight plus delay ... not good!"
Cons: "seat, food, entertainment system and options"
Pros: "You made it possible to change my flight to one earlier"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Q z bsv"
Cons: "Gate changes were not announced and the crew didn't help passengers get their luggage in place to allow for enough room for the last passengers to board. Many passengers places small items that belong below the seat in the over head. I had to ask passengers myself who's bag is this to get them to put it under the seats in front of them."
Pros: "Vegan food please!!!"
Cons: "Las time change my AirPort"
Pros: "Excellent thank you very much"
Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "Charger $190 for a second check in bag of 7kg. Extremely rude staff. Terrible food. Never fly with them again!"
Pros: "Dreamliners are absolutely awesome. I felt refreshed when I landed. Smooth flight, awesome crew."
Pros: "The airline and crew were all excellent and a real pleasure to travel with them."
Cons: "Upon looking at the flights out of Peru we found that there were a lot more choices for returning to Tampa. We were looking at 37 hours of lay over between Lima and Miami. Upon finding the flights with less lay over time we changed our flights and were hammered with $400 change fees. Seemed a bit deceptive that all the flights were not listed when we originally booked. Will use a travel agent next time to make sure we do not run into this situation again."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of space. Very nice flight attendants. Decent food that we didn't have to pay extra for and free movies, tv or games."
Cons: "One of the orlando airport Imigration building was underwater. There was a broken pipe. They have to take us to the others Imigration building where we have to wait for suitecases together with 4 other flights. All that summed up to about 4 hours. Lost connection NO personal of Latam was there to help out. Had to buy another ticket."
Pros: "New aircraft. Clean. On time departure = on time arrival."
Pros: "The crew is fantastic the food is great the airplane is new"
Cons: "Cannot ask for anything more"
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."
Pros: "nice space in business. Great airline !"
Cons: "the meal I chose was too small. I landed in Bogota hungry. But it was my fault"
Cons: "I have to pay for the food with no actual discount or lower price ticket. and the sits are even more tight than before."
Pros: "I don't know that I like anything"
Cons: "The food on this plane is awful. All the pork being served is simply unfair. What about serving turkey sandwiches as an alternative to red meat or pork? The children roam about freely and it's quite uncomfortable. The seats are to close for such a long flight. I really can't get the disgusting dishes out of my mind."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."
Pros: "-Entertainment in seat TVs was amazing. -Food was delicious -Tons of space and I was in the economy or regular seats. -Love the tinting windows! -Staff as always on LATAM in my recent experience was very good. Very cheerful and very caring and considerate. Must keep saying how good the staff was!"
Cons: "Long boarding time...however I realize this was a very large and full flight."
Cons: "Everything. We never made it to the last flight because they cancelled our flight home, stranding us (myself, husband and 2 small children) in Ecuador. I have traveled extensively for almost 20 years and have NEVER dealt with such a terrible company with such shady employees. It was unbelievable and we aren't the only ones. Just take a peek at their social media accounts. They don't allow reviews anymore but there is a community of people who have been stranded in South America by LATAM and the link is easily found. They seem to have a ploy to try and get people to buy extra tickets. Seriously a scam. Stay away!"
Pros: "They lost our bags in the way there due to their own fault. Really unhelpful throughout the recovery process which luckily did not take long."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly service from LATAM employees. On-time flights."
Pros: "Good crew, good service and nice food. Great selection of movies"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Small chairs"
Good cabin crew, Wi-Fi availability al through my trip.
Pros: "Seats ok. Crew is super. Drinks offered"
Cons: "Nothing, AF rocks"
Cons: "The Premium Eco seats are a catastrophe. They don't recline: the seats only slide down slightly but the upper part of your body doesn't move much. This makes for a poor experience, especially on a night flight. Except if you need the extra width, Eco has better value."
Pros: "Cops is always a good reason to flight"
Cons: "They always change the gates, also too many disorders in the gate previous the boarding process, the process it is not clean. They took hand baggage aleatory to send to down and do not ask if we have fragile stuffs there."
Cons: "2 hours delays from LAX to CDG then additional two hours delay from CDG to CAI, this is disappointing"
Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Pros: "Nothing !! Such a bullshit flight ever !!!"
Cons: "No tv fo 14 hr long flight !! Flight delayed for 1 he !! No proper arranged to board .. it was kiosk!! Food quality was worse. No space to seat !! Can’t sleep .. no leg space !! Worst fight till the date !!!"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Good crew, as usual with Air France."
Cons: "Old plane with very lousy seats for a super expensive business class. Super slow check in and overall process till boarding because of lack of ground staff compared to passenger volumes"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."
Cons: "Never got the pre-ordered wheelchair in Paris and only after long negotiations at JFK. Also, Delta lost my checked bag between JFK and DCA."
Pros: "crew great comfortable"
Cons: "Seat was super uncomfortable. Could not fit in my legs at all, could not recline it enough. Maybe sufficient for a one hour flight, definitely not on an intercontinental flight."
Pros: "The crew ask some of us to help seating a family group together. No objection. Then they went out of their way to make the trip more enjoyable for us... even offering a drink of Champagne wine (the true one, not some substitute)... Departed almost on time, arrived a few minutes early..."
Cons: "Excelente aerolínea"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, missed connection, and lost baggage. Subpar."
Cons: "They lost my luggage :("
Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was nice although one fellow was a little too “nervous” and looked bossy"
Cons: "Food was awful. Asked for vegan meal they got it half right, as vegan is not vegetarian. And the second meal or snack as they say was not vegetarian or vegan at all."
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"
Cons: "Horrible delay. I got letd to my next flyight. The airline stuff didn’t assist me at all and didn’t wanted to help me getting to my next flight. Horrible"
Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."
Pros: "My seat"
Pros: "25 min ahead schedule!!!"
Cons: "Cabin space, too narrow rows."
Pros: "Great food (Economy class). Good Service"
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on Economy class area due to aircraft design."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seated in the last row and non adjustable seating, so very little leg room. Dis-enbarkment was very slow."
Pros: "Great hospitality. Champagne as apero, cognac as digestif. Excellent on board entertainment. Comfy pillow and blanket."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "Food was excellent and crew was very nice."
Cons: "Could not check in online before my flight and no zones to board just line up and go apparently."
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "It was an hour late"
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
Cons: "Clean. Courtesy of staff on plane."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and polite, both beverages and an excellent lunch was offered."
Cons: "A delay was not ideal but nothing to worry about since the flight arrived on time."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Losing my luggage after checking it at the gate when volunteers were needed."
Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"
Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."
Pros: "Excellent choice of movies. Great service. Friendly crew."
Cons: "I requested a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, which I received. However, it appears the meal was also vegan. Normally, that would be okay except one of the two standard meal choices was also vegetarian and seemed much better. Since I had selected lacto-ovo vegetarian, it seems I was not allowed to select the standard vegetarian option. Hard not to have cheese on an Air France flight - just saying :-)"
Pros: "All female crew in the cockpit - awesome."
Cons: "Non reclining seats"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Interesting hot food. Entertainment variety very good."
Cons: "Business class seats hard. Did not flatten out for sleep."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I was not given my original reserve seat and no reason was given"
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"
