Cons: "Quise comprar un equipaje 3 dias antes, la app es malisima, trate mil vecss Imposible siempre fallaba Lleve al aerop los comorobantes e igual mw cobraron el Doble, la gerete una maleducada me trato super mal, me pidio comprobantes, le mostre y no hizo nada Horrible atencion!!!!?? Desastre"
Pros: "Every thing was very good"
Pros: "Service is terrible on my way to Peru the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I am formed SteFf but all they could say was they would help me but we never return very disappointed returning from Peru our plane got stuck in Bogotá Columbia we’re trapped inside the plane For three hours with no air-conditioning when we finally disembarked they offered us to stay in a hotel but the voucher process also took a very long time we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning in order to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flight very disappointed with that flight of Avianca again or would I would not recommend Avianca to anyone"
Cons: "Hire competent employees"
Pros: "Fruit and bread was good"
Cons: "The sandwich wasn’t good"
Cons: "For that size of airplane basing on the fact that it was an international flight not having a USB port or any power source by the seats it’s ridiculous. The boarding process was a nightmare, very disorganized the crew members starting boarding group by group just using ONE of the two entrances available because of it the line to board the plan occupied almost 2 boarding gates. I couldn’t reclaim my seat because it was broke, the quality of the food was very mediocre, crew members attitude were upsetting... uncaring and ignoring passengers call. Another filthy plain ... I had 4 flights with avianca between 2 International fights and 2 national connections, all flights were terrible! The worse part is I probably could’ve flight more comfortable for less money or at least get what I paid for."
Pros: "Overall flight was fine. No entertainment nor wifi."
Cons: "At check in in Bogota we asked which line to turn in luggage; as we had previously done online checkin. We were placed in a long line and waited about 45 min.s. Several people were allowed to bypass the line, as they were 'late' for their flight. When we were close to being served the attendant 'placing customers in lines' directed four or five groups from the special needs line ahead of our line in a row. We were told we had missed the baggage check in by 2 minutes and had to pay $60 usd to take an flight 2 hours later. We were then yelled at that we had been in the wrong line. There was another line, very fast one, one the opposite side of the gate area for those with 'bag drop' only needs. I had showed the airline personnel our check in info on my cell and was placed in the wrong line by them. So many problems at airport check in with this airline."
Pros: "Clean airplane, is ok food ,"
Pros: "Comfortable plane! Quick flight"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit messy, very long line to take off, arrived to destination a bit late"
Pros: "Great Airline, Positive customer experience!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "As a non Spanish speaker, it was difficult for me to understand the announcements"
Cons: "Fue un avión no adaptado a nuestros tiempos, sin entretenimiento a bordo, ni siquiera tenía para conectar el celular. Un servicio low cost."
Cons: "I think they can start to offer things to buy and beverages"
Pros: "The agents were all very helpful after we arrived to the airport very late. WE had to run to the gate with all or our bags and the gate agents allowed us to gate check two pieces of luggage even though we arrived only 10 minutes before boarding. Exceptional!"
Cons: "I could not choose a better airline, everything was excellent"
Pros: "thank you for the patience you have with passengers and children, very grateful thousand thanks Avianca"
Pros: "The crew members where extremely nice. I had traveling on business class, with a seat that gets flat, so I was able to sleep most of the flight"
Cons: "The plane had something and was delayed for 3 hours"
Cons: "When arriving at the airport in Bogota not only the flight was delayed but the gate was changed and the person at the counter in the gate wrote the wrong gate on the ticket and flight to Lima was missed. They booked the passenger in the next flight 9 hours after. They did not provide any food nor hotel so passenger to stay at the airport. My guess, they overbooked the flight as they always do, this trip was for my son (20) traveling by himself for the first time, they took advantage of his inexperience; this is is my 3rd bad experience with Avianca and definitely the last one!"
Cons: "Hicieron perder mi equipaje."
Cons: "it was 14 horas late"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment system. Many new and interesting movies to choose from. Beautiful new and clean plane."
Cons: "Waited more than 1.5 hours on the tarmac before taking off. Boarding was also chaotic—we were assigned groups, but no one actually uses them."
Pros: "THAT i ACTUALLY MADE IT HOME"
Cons: "AVIANCA DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SEATS TO ACCOMODATE ALL THE TICKETS THEY SOLD. MY ENTERTAINMENT SCREEN WAS BROKEN, MY RECLINING SEAT WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY & MY TRAY TABLE WAS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE AFTER BEING OPENED, SEATS WERE EXTREMELY CRAMPED AND TIGHT. THE MEAT IN MY MEAL WAS HARD"
Pros: "Puntuales Cordiales Avión confortable Todo el personal en Colombia se mostró amable y simpático, de verdad los felicito por mantener ese espíritu entre sus colaboradores"
Cons: "I need to contact someone in kayak! I went to check in on my flight and found that my flight was canceled by the company used to make the flight reservation and neither the company or kayak ever notified me! On top of that I was still charged for the ticket!! I need a refund and I would like to request a refund of the other ticket I was forced to get in order to get into the plan to reach my destination!"
Pros: "Was really good"
Cons: "I was trying to change my return but they said because I bought it with KAYAK they will charge me minimum 300 dollars and they say they can not do it anyway. That I didn’t like it."
Cons: "Tuvo dos horas de retraso. Perdimos una reunión en Armenia."
Cons: "On Feb 26th we had a flight leaving Bogota back to NYC, and at the gate, we found out our flight would not be operated by Avianca, but by a Spanish carrier called WAMOS. Wamos airlines does not offer in-flight entertainment. It offers an app that you can download on your mobile device prior the flight, even though there are no plugs inside the plane and no fully reclining seats. This change is being caused by an ongoing strike action by some of their own pilots and this has been regarded with absolute no consideration from Avianca to its costumers. At the airport we talked to 3 different customer services employees, all giving us different versions of the story and no clear answers. One employee told us that we MAY have a possibility of reimbursement and another one that we could stay in a hotel and catch another flight the next day (which was not an option for us) There was no advance warning about this change to me (not even during check-in) Found out later some passengers gotten an email informing about this change, but not all of them. Staff didn't know anything about this flight. The gate staff only informed passengers of the change, after I complained, and kept insisting that the airplanes were the same, when clearly it was not the same quality, in amenities and service on board. There were big delays and a mess with seat assignments. Many customers traveling together with separated seats and of course, delays in departure caused by the mess that Avianca caused. Just to be clear. what Avianca is doing is stealing the money that we paid for a specific flight, to voluntary change us to a much less inferior flight, with absolutely no consideration and no compensations."
Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Cons: "It was late and then I missed my connection, and an Avianca employee told me there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on. However, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Cons: "Avianca did not want to respect my ticket and put on standby my seating"
Pros: "While on board everything is good. Nice food, great entertaining, really comfortable. Problem is what happens in between if you have connecting flights."
Cons: "I bought my flight and it had 2 connections. The time frame between flights was HORRIBLE! On the first flight change I was in a horrible rush to get there on time an I barely made it. On the second flight change, I was one of the firsts in coming out on the plane, I didn't stop even for a second and was fast paced and even with that I had to run from half of the airport to the gate because boarding was complete and the flight was waiting for just a few persons (which I met later because it happened the same to all of us) . My flights were on time so all that stress was NOT SUPPOSED to happen. It took forever to being able to get out of the plane and it was more than clear that Avianca didn't took any of that or the airport procedures in mind before selling the flights with connections. And because their lack of organization and being so careless about this matter, my checked bag got stucked. I was lucky enough to get home but my bag did not. And it happened the same to the other people who had problems with their connections too (that's where I met them, when we were the only persons who didn't got the bags and happened to have similar experiences with our connecting flights). I'm really disappointed, I really liked Avianca flights in general but now I know I can't trust in their judgement when it comes to connecting flights, they just sell you the flight and don't care if you're going to be able to make it or not."
Pros: "Más espacio entre sillas"
Cons: "No quiero que cierren la sala vip tan temprano"
Cons: "See above + air hostesses speak poor English. When asked to persuade certain travellers to put their seats in the upright position during mealtimes they refused and claimed that it is bussines of mine to arrange for that. In the course of previous flight they have hower required that. Very confusing. The behaviour and performance of the crew was hardly proffesional. They paid little attention e.g. To people who did respect instructions concerning fastening the seat belts orcto remain seated during landing, etc."
Pros: "Nothing. I wish I could give negative stars."
Cons: "Everything was bad. Super delayed, terrible explanation. Had to stay overnight in the airport in the worst lounge I’ve ever seen in my life. Got a hotel voucher but by the time I would have gotten through immigration and got to a hotel I would have had 1 hour to “sleep” before having to get back to the airport for the 4 am flight which was then delayed again to 5am. After all this, we only got a $250 voucher on a $1500 flight. When I asked about business class upgrades they said they had seats open but it would cost $400! For a seat that stayed empty Instead of giving it to a customer who had been through the worst travel experience of their life. The flight attendants seemed like they really couldn’t give a damn about helping out customers and it’s the only airline I’ve ever interacted with where no one speaks English. One guy actually rolled his eyes when I asked him for the meal I missed when I was sleeping."
Cons: "Everything. We have flown over 6 flights with Avianca this month. Every single one of them was delayed or cancelled. Not one apology. Not one upgrade. Nothing. We missed 4 days out of our family vacation due to Avianca's terrible service and airline. We went to 3 different offices and called the call center 3 times, we sent 4 emails to no response. Do not fly with them ever."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."
Cons: "- Rescheduled flights due to Avianca commercial decisions just 1 week before flight - Boarding was very messy due to their inhability to explain the "group system", they have pax that doesn't speak spanish or english, they should do it in a more easy way - Food portions wasn't enough, a lot of people had to bring their own snacks and the plane had a terrible smell due to that. People will bring bags with full roasted chickens - Entretainment was ok, but their system is just so slow - A lot of loss time because they lost my bags in one of the connections. Hopefully they brough it back 12 hours later"
Cons: "Late for no reason. Boarded late, arrived late"
Cons: "Thanks to all of the delays, I'm still waiting for this flight."
Cons: "After avianca overbooked their flight, lied to me and said it was because of a strike i was stuck alone in bogota for 11 hours instead of 3.5. I received no compensation and am very angry with the way things were handled. Definitely wont be bothing with this airline again"
Pros: "LA PELICULA QUE ME VI ESTABA BUENA."
Cons: "NO PUDE USAR LA COBIJA DE AVIANCA PORQUE TENIA UN OLOR ESPANTOSO ASI COMO LA DE MI ACOMPANANTE, EL AVION ESTABA HELADO Y NO PUDE USARLA POR CULPA DE AVIANCA. LA COMIDA ES POCA Y DESAGRADABLE. HABIA UNA AZAFATA CON UN CARACTER TERRIBLE,MALGENIADA Y PARA NADA AMABLE A LA HORA DE AYUDAR O ATENDER A LOS PASAJEROS,DABA MIEDO HABLARLE. A MI ME ACOMODARON DONDE SE LES DIO LA GANA, NO DONDE ESTABA SUPUESTA A SENTARME PORQUE SUBIERON DE ULTIMAS A UNA PERSONA EN SILLA DE RUEDAS Y ME TUVIERON QUE INCOMODAR PARA DARLE LA SILLA A EL. ME PARECE QUE TIENEN QUE DARLES OTRAS SILLAS A ELLOS. ES MUY INCOMODO EL ASIENTO. MUY CARO PARA TAN POCA COSA DE AVION. ES MEJOR American Airlines."
Cons: "We were denied boarding because the flight was overbooked, and rerouted on a red eye with our two children, ages three and five months. Terrible travel experience, not repeating any aspect of it."
Cons: "Once In Bogota my 1h flight to pereira was cancelled and I was told I wouldn't be able to get on another flight for another 1 or 2 days which was a huge inconvenience, later after speaking with someone I was given the option to board another plane to a nearby city 10 hours later. I agreed and had to make arrangements to make transportation from manisales to pereira,for my surprise on the way to manisales the flight got redirected to Pereira my original destination, that was great but created another inconvenience for my transportation arrangements."
Pros: "I liked the crew and the eatability the fly. I liked also the security the airline provide, the clean and the comfort."
Cons: "I just didn't liked the space between the chairs, Is to tight. For far way travel is very discomfort."
Pros: "No response given."
Cons: "After all these connecting flights especially after being delayed in Cali, the flight in Bogota was delayed and the Avianca crew did not announce it. After realizing it was time for boarding according to the time that I needed to be at the gate from my ticket, that's when people were realizing there was an issue. Once I got to the podium and handed my tickets the staff handed a voucher. There wasn't a hello, we're sorry for the inconvenience or the reason why the flight was delayed 2 hours. I had to ask them why what happened, what is the voucher for, how does it work, what time we were expected to be at the gate. The staff made everyone aware that we needed to be at the gate at 4pm so we can depart at 445pm. The food was okay and the staff looked a little annoyed when serving drinks. I shouldn't say all of the crew but from the back half of the plane the staff looked annoyed if not bothered. Didn't get to NYC until 12am, but had to wait on the runway for an additional 20 minutes. Again no communication on what was going on."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats were clunky, I couldn't recline my seat during a 10 hours night flight."
Pros: "I had a rough time due to stomach problems."
Cons: "When I asked the attendants for some medicine to help my stomach, they replied they were prohibited from giving medicines to passengers. Since they are not doctors, I understood their point of view."
Pros: "the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "boarding was a complete disaster. the lady at the counter gave me all wrong information. the random screening was done very rudely. not a single staff spoke a word of English which is unacceptable for an international flight. the food albeit not significant after the horrendous boarding experience was terrible, and I had to ask several times for water. Further, for the flight to bogotá, we had called and spent a lot of time on the phone to reserve seats, which were then all wrong once we checked in at the airport. what was the point."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Baby screaming & passengers not using headphones"
Pros: "Good order and efficient."
Cons: "All fine with me."
Pros: "Plane was fine."
Cons: "Awful baggage experience. Forced to check my carry-on and pay an absurd fee even tho (1) it is sized for the overhead bin, (2) the plane bins were well-sized, and (3) there were few passengers on board. Time and money wasted."
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Cons: "Quick, easy, no problem."
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es muy reducido. Las rodillas pegan contra el asiento de en frente. Muy incómodo y genera impacto en la espalda."

Cons: "Your Customer Service"
Pros: "I fly for a living sand I’m on airlines all over the world. This little flight was of the worst I have ever been on and I’ll never fly Latam again"
Cons: "From the time my ticket was scanned it to 37 mins to board the plan... standing still in line. Caos! A message announces at any time we a happy to serve you water I got up and asked for water and was told wait until the cart comes by my seat. The seats are VERY CLOSE together and my row 22"
Pros: "Crew and flight was fine and short"
Cons: "While I received an email to checkin on the way there, I did not receive anything for the return flight. Had to wait in line to check in. Also KIWI was the booker and did not share the regular flight code of Latam, only KiWis number which wasn't helpful. Finally, both flights were delayed."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful with my insulin dilemma given the limited resources they had at hand."
Cons: "Food. And some entertainment on an international flight."

Cons: "Too tight, no entertaintment"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and didn’t care to do anything about it. They name no means of tracking. They don’t know where the luggage is, whether it even left Bogota or not. They literally don’t have a tracking system. And their only response to us was that we could go ahead and leave a bad review on the website and that’s it. I’m not kidding! I can’t believe they are still in business. It’s just a terrible company."
Pros: "The Crew tried to work with what they have."
Cons: "1. Plane to small. there was no room. 2. Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"
Cons: "Child behind my seat was loud kicked my seat and parents did nothing."
Cons: "Plane shakes moves and jumps to much. Seems like LATAM is always late. They did not honor the seats which we pre purchased. Seems like the captains fly to fast and don’t know how to land"
Pros: "Normally, getting on a plane in Colombia is an absolute nightmare. People pushing, standing right next to you, when you get on the plane all the old women who do not know how to read always walk to the back of the plane when they're supposed to be sitting in seat 7? Been there? Seen that? Yes ! Seen it a million times. What makes this particular flight so unbelievable, and maybe it was just a training day because there was a lot of airline personnel at the check in kiosk, but I have never processed on to a flight in Columbia, given up my baggage, and be walking to the gate so fast in my life! I truly hope this is something that will become standard, and I pray to God that the other airlines especially Viva will learn how to do!"
Cons: "Overall very good, good crew... minus point.. seats SO tiny, it makes Asian airline economy seats feel like 1st class!"
Pros: "Personnel were helpful (attractive!)"
Cons: "Seats! Outrageously cramped...As a Pilot, I know for a FACT they are not FAA/ICAO safety compliant ...no way!"

Cons: "Seats are squeezed together so tight that you essentially have to climb over the arm rests to get into the window seat"
Pros: "Lack of maintanance the pilot had to turn around in the runway because the plain had no sufficent gas. Maintanance should be constant not reqctive of the situation"
Pros: "Service was very good and professional"
Cons: "Flight was packed but thats expected"
Pros: "Punctuality. attention of stewardesses"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Easy boarding and organized staff. Friendly staff overall."
Cons: "Terrible terrible food- no TV (really? in 10 years flying to Colombia this was a first) seats were very uncomfortable, no room to move the legs, the seats were super old no room at all. I have traveled with LATAM before and I had good experiences, with no complains. But the flight from Bogota to Miami on may 29th was mediocre and it seems longer than it was. That plane should be used for shorter flights and not a 4 hour international flight. I am not expecting first class seats and 5 course meals. But for the same price I could have used other airlines."
Pros: "airplane was new"
Cons: "i was not able to do online check in"
Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"

Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "EL EQUIPAJE NO LO MANDARON HASTA DESTINO FINAL Y SE PERDIO"
Pros: "Bosrdi g wss easy"
Cons: "Food Entertainment Leg space"
