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)."

There was a ton of movies from the 90s and the same movie selection from about 6 months ago when I traveled with them. Also, what is going on, with having to use your own cell phone to watch movies on the plane? Whatever happened to the screens in the backseat of the front seat? I ended up with neck pain from trying to watch a movie on my phone. Delta has become very cheap. It is going into some serious decline."

Pros: "Chicken kale salad was inedible. I did not know chicken had gristle!"
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline.

Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."

Cons: "In a 6h flight, they only served drinks once. I saw the crew member once with a tray of glasses with water, but he ran out before getting to our seat and never came back. I was glad I hadn't finished a bottled water I had purchased earlier at the airport."

Cons: "Fly was cancelled"
Pros: "I was afraid I my not be able to recline my chair but thankfully it worked, i was so much more confortable than the firts flight."
Cons: "to much use of plastic for the food. The planet is full of plastic. By the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. AEROMEXICO can do something about it, be part of the solution, just by changing the cups to paper cups and the forks,spoons and knifes to reusable ones."
Cons: "No pude tomar mi vuelo por un error entre su plataforma, la de priceline y la de Aeromexico en el que finalmente salí afectada yo.. Es la peor experiencia que he tenido y no volveré a utilizar sus servicios."

Cons: "On this flight my husbands screen didn’t work at all. So I’m both flights we were forced to share."
Pros: "It would be nice if you could use the AeroMexico app and watch entertainment on your phone, without paying."
Cons: "There was throw up on the row in front of me and since no one on the flight before said anything it didn’t get cleaned up right so it had a smell to it."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "The food could have been better but it wasn't horrible!"
Pros: "Free tv"
Cons: "No personal entertainment. The plane was too old. No previously allowed to choose seat."
Pros: "The huevos rancheros that they served for breakfast was pretty good and our flight arrived early."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."
Pros: "Excellent service, plus no extra cost for the carry-on."
Cons: "It took almost an hour to get off the plane at our arrival."
Pros: "we flew clase premier and really enjoyed it. there was cheese and wine to start, then a chicken breast with potatoes along with a courgette salad and then asparagus on the side. the movie selection was good, the seats were comfortable... we were very happy with it."
Pros: "On board service, entertainment and food was a nice surprise. Wine and beer offered free of charge with the meal, great movie selection without charge as well and very helpful crew during the boarding process. Seats in economy had plenty of leg room and space on the sides."
Cons: "Food was good and better than my experience with other airlines but still not as good as it use to be a few years ago."
Cons: "Very, very displeased with the care I received from this airline and their lack of communication about the boarding process. Both the gate staff for my flight, the gate staff for other flights, and the staff behind the check-in counters were unhelpful, uncompassionate and seemed to have no sense of "customer care." I ended up missing my flight because of their disorganization, their lack of communication and professionalism, and then, was not helped in the least. I echo another reviewer when I say, "worst experience flying ever.""
Pros: "Good service. Nice to have a meal and drinks for still a relatively short flight. Seats were more spacious than I was expecting."
Cons: "Flights were delayed."
Pros: "Boarding ran very smoothly, nice staff. It was nice having WiFi during the flight. Very good leg space between rows"
Cons: "Food was not the best. Just one option of breakfast, it has been better. Awful, awful landing! One of the worst landings of my life and the captain said nothing about it."
Cons: "Delayed flight, customer service was hard to work with."
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Didn’t let me board even with boarding pass. Want to chat me multiple fees and charge almost double of a new ticket. I went online and buy a ne ticket. Bad customer service."
Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "went to Cancun and out of the four flights, only had in flight entertainment once. Ac was barely working and in terms of beverages it was only coke, sprite, water, coffee or juice. Seen better selection on every other airline I've flown in. Seat cushion barely there."
Cons: "No solution was provided to travelers who needed to be at the destination on the originally scheduled date. Had to spend a fortune on another airline to get tinny destination as Aeromexico offered (and as of yet still has not) no solution"
Cons: "5 hours late and the worst customer service ever"
Pros: "Selection of Mexican Movies"
Cons: "They should leave you peanuts even if you are sleep!! Hehehe lol"
Cons: "Flight left almost an hour late."
Pros: "Departure in time"
Cons: "They let oversized Carrie on"
Pros: "It's an average flight with so much area of opportunities."
Cons: "The traffic waiting to take off."
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Cons: "The crew had the worst service and attitude, they didn't ask me for food options, they gave me pasta without asking. Rude manners"
Pros: "The staff handling the boarding were very unorganized. There was a person barely walking and they didn't provide a wheel chair. I asked on her behalf and the answer was "she had to request it previous to her boarding". They only took her to the boarding area and she walked a long way."
Cons: "The rudeness and unorganized staff helping with the boarding"
Pros: "A few seat empty xso we all could stretch"
Cons: "Unable to make flight due to unable to leave the country because they were not getting anyone leave the city and I called to explain situation and nobody could reschedule or give me a refund . The situation was critical and out of my hands. It's unfortunate that I lost the flight and 3 Almost $300. It so sad that no one could help me with this unexpected situation."
Cons: "The flight details by the Captain. Came on at the end of the flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding, takeoff and loading off the plane."
Cons: "I paid additional fee for preferred seating and my seat did not recline."
Pros: "The price for the tickets"
Cons: "No air in plane while we were delayed"
Pros: "Great staff and comfortable aircraft"

Pros: "Is on time"
Cons: "The food is terrible"
Pros: "Everything was great other than it would've been nice if they had cut me some slack on the new flight i needed after i missed mine (my fault)"
Cons: "4 times I asked for a blanket, and finally when I put a not very nice face I get it."
Pros: "Flight staff excellent"
Cons: "Seating sucked"
Pros: "The crew did their job."
Cons: "At least monitors to watch a movie since there is no food in first class..."
Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."
Cons: "Only saw what was supposed to have happened but didn’t no help from the air line period."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "it was great!"
Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
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."
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "Better weather"
Pros: "Modern equipment (787)"
Cons: "8 emails from Kayak and 1 from AA warning of flight delay. But gate agents did not know anything about this and boarded us on schedule. So we sat for 90 minutes until the new aircraft was 'repaired'. Failed by a mile to make the connection. And I suppose I should have paid first-class fare, as then I would have made by connection?"
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "Terrible service from crew. Bad odors from bathrooms."
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
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."
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
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: "Not much."
Cons: "Plane malfunction resulted in delay, and missed connection. Rebooked connection flight was canceled. Now in day 2 of eaitingto get home."
Pros: "Loved all the meals. Tasty, well-coordinated."
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."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane was too old. It is shameful. Avianca should stop using this plane"
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
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"
Cons: "Deben explicar con claridad las políticas de equipaje en vuelos operados por American Airlines."
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Pros: "Very little legroom for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
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: "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."
Cons: "At the last minutes was told to go to seat next to the bathroom coz the airline made a mistake and have my seat to the other person. So unprofessional and disappointing."
Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"
Cons: "The food"
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."
Pros: "Great food and headphones"
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Pros: "Flight to Dallas was 3 hours late and that was the good news"
Cons: "Flight returning from Dallas to Birminham was absurd. Multiple delays before announcing cancellation. Other flights over booked. Took 24 hours to get back to Bham. Cheap motel. Food voucher was not enough to cover pizza."
Cons: "The crew overall. Many of them seemed overwhelmed and bothered to be there. Were not helpful and did not try to create a safe environment."
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
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."
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
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 flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "A very old B757. late departure. No explanation."
Pros: "I liked the movie screen showing me where we were and how much longer it would take to get to the destination. The flight was super smooth."
Cons: "No decaf on an overnight flight. No cookie, only a tiny package of pretzels. Cheapskates."
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"
Pros: "Too crowded and not much space"
Pros: "They were able to change my seat location from middle to an exit aisle seat, nice."
Cons: "No food choices"
Pros: "Very accommodating cabin crew."
Pros: "The flight attendants very sincere & nice. I love that their was a lot of leg room on the flight as well."
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Cons: "There was no entertainment alternatives."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are very tight. Entertainment depends on bringing your own ipad or laptop and using the United system. Movies tended to be oldies. Food is 10 pretzels. Count them."
Cons: "Drink/snack service was slow because of limited staff."
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "Same experience on ANOTHER 8 hour flight I have NEVER flown on an international flight and NOT received a complimentary meal or two...When I'm flying for 8 hours. On top of that the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I shouldn't feel a person grabbing a magazine or pulling down a tray when I'm sitting in the seat in front of them. I couldn't consistently watch a show or movie for 3 minutes thanks to the wifi and or app on MY Samsung tablet....it's SO sad that you guys couldn't have them already installed like other airlines. This airline is already in hot water, I expected MUCH better customer service. I will do my best NOT to use them again and tell others to do the same."
Cons: "The crabbiest crew I've ever encountered - they even barked at each other."
Cons: "AC was extremely cold"
Pros: "United Provide good service"
Cons: "The flight delayed"
Cons: "The plane was delayed from 1.5 hours to 2 to 2.5 hours. It was startling to get these updates vs saying it is 2.5 hours from the start."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "United, as always, was professional and efficient. Once I was able to find the information from price line for my check in, everything went smoothly. I was impressed that the airline sent an email suggesting a change of itinerary due to weather in Chicago, and waived change fees to facilitate this. I got home without cancelled or delayed flights."
Cons: "The kayak to price line to united interface led to communication breakdown. I received no notice to check in for my departing flight, and had to dig through several messages and 2 websites to find the appropriate confirmation number. It should be clearer who you are actually purchasing from, and there should be better fail-safes in place to prevent loss of information"
Pros: "Trip and treatment were ok... but tv is way expensive. Avianca offers you a wide range of movies and tv series for free."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour since bags had to all be unpacked and then packed back into plane due to bags being stored improperly and not all fitting"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "They gave us free entertainment"
Cons: "We took two hours in taking off"
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"
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Vegetarian food was available and that was the only likeable part for me. Every else was strictly ok."
Cons: "Nothing exceptional. The flight crew definitely needs to to tone down on their attitude and customer service skills. Short distance traveling is fine but definitely not recommended for long distance."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
Pros: "The first on-time flight I've experienced from United. I also was able to check my bags for free."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was showing unwanted photography of his erect genitals during flight. I was so uncomfortable that I spent most of the flight in the lavatory. I flagged down United stewardesses but they were unwilling to hear about how I was visually assualted. United does not care about the comfort or safety of their young female customers."
Cons: "I was told that despite weather delays I would definitely make my connection on time and to "stop wasting the agent's time" with my questions. Of course I missed it, spent Christmas night in the Houston airport, and nearly lost my job for missing work the next day. I would never fly United again."
