Cons: "We were not allowed to check my bag in line 2 hours early. Time listed on e boarding pass was at gate but we were in line 2 hours early and not alerted to get put ahead in lines. Misleading us and 3 others we knew of to not allowed to check bags or go to gate. Had to rebook next available 1 1/2 days later."
Pros: "Crew was ok."
Cons: "Four people at the desk in the check in as area, totally insufficient for the whole operation in a busy day."
Pros: "Every thing was very good"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Food was horrible and no drink options. I hate diet soda yuck"
Pros: "The puntuality"
Cons: "Possibility of entertainment in the plane"
Cons: "I purchased a fully refundable ticket. When the flight was canceled I got squat. Eventually got a voucher from Avianca. I paid for a ticket to get money back, not a voucher. Kayak where is my money!"
Cons: "Water and snack"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Amazin crew a comfort."
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: "I like Avianca"
Cons: "Just unboard and board again is uncomfortable."
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: "I love everything from checking in two free bags, to inflight entertainment, to food, to friendly staff."
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: "Never again with Avianca"
Cons: "Never again with Avianca"
Cons: "Estos boletos me los cargaron a la cuenta y la app de KAYAK daba error. yo compre en otra app y no es mi culpa que no sirviera al 100% kayak, necesito me devuelvan mi dinero. Mal recomedare a KAYAK como estafa y que es una mala opcion para la compra de boletos y los demas servicios que ofrecen."
Cons: "Boarding process. We had to use buses"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Great entertainment. Nice planes."
Cons: "The food was very mediocre. Very tiny portions and one my bogota to Buenos Aires flight we had a very small turkey and cheese on a roll for a 6 hr flight. Additional snacks would’ve been appreciated. Plane to Buenos Aires was roomy both planes were clean."
Cons: "I think they can start to offer things to buy and beverages"
Pros: "The team members that helped me with the hiccups before check in were amazing."
Cons: "Was a little cramped but I’m tall so there’s not much you can do about it."
Pros: "Pretty much everything."
Cons: "I cannot think of a single thing that I did not like."
Pros: "The sandwich was surprisingly delicious"
Pros: "Flight delayed causing anxiety as onward connection."
Cons: "No vegetarian food available."
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!"
Pros: "Great costumer service"
Cons: "it was 14 horas late"
Pros: "Lots of space, very organized"
Cons: "not enough water passed around"
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."
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."
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."
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: "- 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: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable on both flights for such a duration... The layover/transfer in Bogota was chaotic, and rushed. My luggage did not make it to the final destination, so I am here with none of my belongings :("
Pros: "Clean, fun, good food and nice attention!"
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: "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."
Cons: "- Old, not well equipped A330 for the BOG-EZE Leg. - crew was, in general rude and unnatentive. - crew did not follow aviation "rules". They allowed a lady to use the toilet when we were in taxi."
Cons: "No accommodations made for having landed in Montevideo, plane was on the ground for about an 1 hour and 30 minutes with no air conditioning. Many passengers were thirsty and we were not told what was going on."
Pros: "I received an email the day before saying flight was delayed 8 hours and then a later email sating email was now delayed ~3 hours. When I called the call center, they said the flight was actually cancelled and wanted to reassign me in another flight. After an hour on the phone and talking to several people, they confirmed the flight was delayed by 3 hours but provided no explanation as to why."
Cons: "I was sick, I had headache while flighting from Washington to Bogota and when I asked to a woman of the crew for a pain pill she said that I will get assistance once we get landed. Then, when we landed and I asked for assistance again, the crew just told me to go after the next step and then I will receive assistance. I never received assistance and I had a discussion about it with a woman during the boarding at Bogota. I just wanted a headache pill killer and nobody help me."
Cons: "The turbulence was really bad ! I couldn’t sleep at all !"
Pros: "The seat was decent"
Cons: "A little late for departure, still loved it"
Pros: "good crew. great seats."

Cons: "The flight attendants were not friendly to us, though they were competent at their jobs. More varied entertainment choices would have been nice, too."
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"
Pros: "Very poor service. The crew is not capable of attending the needs of passengers, specially those traveling with children. Comfort on board is terrible. An airplane of two seats on each side for over 7 hours and to many stops. The stop in CR was unnecessary. We had a very difficult flight with no entertainment and poor service."
Cons: "They need to take more serious their services for toddlers and children. Seats are not apt for children from 2 up to 8. Seatbelts do not fit a child. They don't have an emergency kit for children. No entertainment, no pillows, no blankets. We had to beg for water. It was simply unacceptable."
Cons: "Boarding lines are awful"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 40 minutes."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "On my way to Colombia- I was made to pay $40 to check my skateboard, even though I was allowed to carry it onto the plane from the US to Panama. On the way back I was told that I could bring it on the plane if I took the wheels off. I did. They did not allow me, and made me check it anyway."
Cons: "Food on COPA is terrible."
Cons: "No air in plane while boarding so temperatures we're easily over 100 degrees in the cabin"
Pros: "Bety good service abording..."

Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "Wasn't given headphones when asked."
Pros: "Flight was good...ease of making reservations...choices and time available"
Cons: "not much to say here"
Cons: "Rude crew, old plane, no entertainment"
Cons: "My pc was reseted twice and didn’t work properly. Copa employee didn’t aske me, he just told me only rice with meat. We don’t have more pasta!!! Really bad trip overall"
Pros: "Everything was fine, long haul flights tend to be stressful but crew managed to make it as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for a couple of hours, not really Copa's fault but well, that would be my only "complain""
Pros: "Our flight wasn’t delayed twice then cancelled and rescheduled until 9:pm the next day. From Bogota Colombia to San Francisco with a connecting flight to Panama. Copa Airmines flight CM 658."
Cons: "The fact that they made me travel 18+ hours to get home!!! WTF!!"
Cons: "It was a bad day to fly both of my flights was late more than one hour and the gate agent did not announce to give the reason why it was late to take off"
Cons: "There was a 4.5 hours delay in panama I paid for the accompaniment of my kid and they just left him alone the 10 hours didn’t even bother to tell him there was a change of boarding door"
Cons: "Got bumped from flight"
Pros: "Nothing since my negative stressed the whole trip."
Cons: "We have long names, 4. It was correct in the booking with Layak but copa charged us $120 US / 2,090 MXP For correcting. Saying that Kayak didn't transmit everything. It was pay or be denied boarding."
Cons: "Flight was delayed on bogota no help went we got to panama to get the next flight information"
Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"
Cons: "I flight from Panamá to bs as at least 10 times a year, and I have Presidential Platinum status, never in all the flights I receive my luggage with priority. It doesn't matter if the have the priority sign, no one respect that. Panama airport use to be a good airport, now you can't really buy anything because they don't accept credit cards, and the Copa saloon is always full, so I'm thinking on flying avianca from now on."
Pros: "I have absolutely no complain about this flight or the crew, they were all diligent and helpful."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly, one of the friendlier crews I've flown with lately. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Seats comfortable, but planes are old and outdated"
Cons: "Flight rerouted without plan. Crew totally unprepared, hostile to customers, horrendous customers service, on tarmac nearly three hours without water, etc., stranded all day at LAX unnecessarily, CREW NEVER DID SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for additional flight, which is totally illegal!!"
Cons: "Although the airline knew about the delays it decided to make people wait inside the airplane for almost 4 hours. That was insane! I refer to this specific situation with such dislike because I had friends traveling at the exact same time as us through a different airline whom didnt let the people aboard the plane until climate warnings were cleared. It was the proper thing to do! I been in others flights in which weather conditions dont allowed to depart on time and people is not allowed to go on board until the conditions are better. No even a cup of water was offered during this stressful time, and the seatbelt sign was on the whole time. It was horribly handled!!!"
Pros: "Everything was on time and have no complaints on this particular flight."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board my next flight out of Panama City because of overweight. I suspect they knew that was going to happen as they gave me a boarding pass without a confirmed seat."
Cons: "No food, no drinks, just water that you should go a look for yourself, but they told us to remain seated! All the seats taken, so no SARS-COV 2 real protocol."
Pros: "The meal"
Cons: "Everything! Entertainment, boarding, etc"
Cons: "The Airplane was a 737 , without entertainment, for a 6 hour flight. Food was cold."
Cons: "Justfly took 32 dollar to have the seats and wasn't asign and I ask for special food and they didn't transmit to Aerolineas argentinas. Justfly me cobro 32 por asignar los asientos y no lo hizo. Tambien pedi comida para diabeticos y no los solicito a Aeroliena argentina."
Cons: "Moré films variety"
Pros: "I was set at the emergency exit for free."
Cons: "If there was any Entertainment."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived at the prescribed airports; nice crew."
Cons: "Pretty much everything else. Severely limited beverage offering: Forget alcohol of any kind, there are only four choices: coffee, water, coke, and sprite. Check the baggage fees!! Even on international flights Aerolineas Argentinas sees a need to charge baggage fees, even for the first bag."
Pros: "Entertainment, crew and food"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "More share of information between airlines"
Cons: "They broke both of my luggage! And didn't recognize a thing!"
Cons: "The flight was changed, then changed back. We didn't get the second notification of the change and we missed our flight. We had to purchase another flight and also had to pay to have other flights rearranged due to the delay. $1500 later, we made it to Buenos Aires."
Pros: "It arrived earlier"
Cons: "The seats, the food, the entertainment"
Pros: "Carry on luggage could not fit in the overhead bin, Crew told me that they will give me the luggage at JFK. but, they did not on the plane. Airline told me not certain answer. Make me nervous"
Cons: "Better entertainment for the long flight"
Pros: "Seats are to tight, no space for legs, somebody with 1.80 mts and 110 kgs was not comfy at all."
Cons: "They damaged my suit case."
Cons: "כאשר הזמנתי את הטיסה היה כתוב בבירור שיש לי מזוודה כלול במחיר וכאשר הגעתי לטיסה חייבו אותי לשלם כסף נוסף על זה!!"

Cons: "food service,toilets"
Pros: "Movies and tv shows are bear minimum need to give more verity of movies and English tv shows."
Cons: "Food is very basic and no spirits as far as whisky or vodka, just beer and cheap wine"
Pros: "The hospitality and the catering"
Pros: "The crew was very professional and the connection to Salta was perfect. If you are traveling to Salta and don’t want to wait long , the best connecting flight from Miami Is the one that leaves Miami at 6:45 which arrives at Ezeiza at 4:15 am and connect to Salta at 6:00 am. I went thru immigrations and rechecked my baggage in less than 40 min. It was a great experience with smooth travel experience."
Pros: "Good Service."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable sits, too small for normal people."
Pros: "got me there without event and even though my bag didn't make it until the next day, they delivered it to where I was staying."
Cons: "I wish it was cheaper because now I can't afford to keep her and I'm so worried that I no longer sleep pure."
Pros: "There was a mixup with our passports (my fault) and the staff at the check-in counter were amazingly helpful. Iwant to thank them publicly. Will certainly fly with Aerolineas Argentinas again!"
Cons: "The departure time was delayed."
Pros: "The plane is okay and the flight attendant staff was nice and accommodating."
Cons: "20 hours into this supposed 9 hour trip, I've been to 2 extra airports, and have 2 flights and 6+ hours to go. Last time flying this airline. Something must be seriously wrong in the higher ups of this company."
Pros: "Abordaje rapido y atención buena de los pilotos"
Cons: "No pude escoger mi comida, porque se les había acabado el pollo u la otra opción de almuerzo; así que me tiraron una bandeja que traía una pasta rebosada en grasa que me sentó mal durante el vuelo y obvio no quería pasta, quería optar por otra cosa. Únicamente se dio este almuerzo y no hubo una comida adicional o café a pesar de ser cerca de seis horas de vuelo."
Pros: "Profesional and warm attention of the crew."
Cons: "So much turbulence. Almost 1.5 hour. But thanks good, nothing that affected the security flight."
Pros: "For some reason - no explanation - they pulled me from the back of the line and expedited my boarding."
Cons: "Rrading light didn't work. Food OK, not very good. Seats very tight, really cramped."
Pros: "Clean, efficient, friendly modern airline. Absolutely no complaints, especially given the rock bottom rate we paid!"
Cons: "No issues with the airplane or staff. Travelers to Argentina should know, however, that the airlines require proof of a ticket for leaving the country before boarding their flight. We had only booked one way so we had to book a bus ticket to Uruguay using our cell phones. It was very disconcerting. (Some very kind airline staff helped us with that). And even more so because no one at customs in Argentina asked for any return information! A last minute return flight booking at the gate was quoted at an outrageous sum."
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Got to the airport early, personnel at the gate asked out of their own initiative if I wanted a better seat on the emergency row. They serve the usual airplane drinks (coffee, coke, water, juice, etc.) and give you a bag of trail mix and a cereal bar - not as good as the alfajores from a few years ago but still way better than what you'd get in North America or Europe these days. They offered streaming to your own device for IFE but I didn't use it. It's a pleasure to see so much improvement to Aerolineas vs. a few years ago. The monitors had dozens of flights and they were all on-time, both ways."
Pros: "Wasn’t told before the flight that I needed a ticket out of Argentina by plane, bus or train. Damn near didn’t make the flight. Purchase a bus ticket to Uraguay"
Pros: "All planes had nice Sky interiors. Pitch was better than LAN B789s. All flights arrived between 15 and 20 min. early. I had to check another bag between 2 flights (I had left one in a locker at 2nd airport) and it was no issue at all, personnel at Ezeiza were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Although IFE was ok (large new screens, good brightness), the movie selection wasnt stellar, and there was no classical music to relax. But these are minor points. Food was regular airplane food, nothing special but not worse than anywhere else."
Pros: "Everything worked out on time. Plane with renovated interior, large screen IFE, food just normal airplane food. Movie selection a bit mediocre. Received excellent service from staff in Buenos Aires (had to check in extra bag that my family had there, it was oversize and the agent took extra care, walked me to oversize bag check)."
Pros: "nos dieron dos sandwich nada mas! una vergueza"
Pros: "Flight was shorter than described."
Cons: "Food wasn’t great, even for airplane food. The flight was delayed about 2.5 hrs, with notice 24hrs in advance, which was ok, but it was delayed an extra 45’ right before boarding."
Pros: "None! Never got to fly. They cancelled our flight. Twice. Then nobody told us the strike was over. As a consequence we lost 2 days of our vacation and hotel fee.Couldn't in touch with their 800 number as it was always shutting down. We went to JFK. There was nobody to ask. This is the worst airline. I think I'll never fly this airline even if it was free. We flew United. Old plane but great service."
Cons: "We got bumped the day before left due to an airline strike. We only found out it was due to a strike because our excellent customer service by webjet.com. Then as we waited for our next flight, we received another email saying we have been bumped another day on our vacation to Argentina. No indication as to why we were bumped. So we tried everything to get in touch with the airline. They only have one customer service number in North America. We called for 4 hours. They never picked up and the automatic service phone number, which is they same for all kiosks at JFK and the main number and the Canadian office number, kept hanging up on us. Fortunately our booking website, webjet.com had great customer service and got in touch with the airline. They cancelled the flight reservation at no charge due to the strike. Without them our flight would have been pushed by two days. Instead of what we did do which was cancel our reservation and moved to another airline, AAirlines, to a redeye flight. But due to the bumps and last minute purchases my wife and I sat separately on the 11 hr flight, in middle seats, overnight with no room to sleep. Also my refund will take 3 weeks according to Aerolineas Argentinas policy! Do not book with Aerolineas Argentina's!"
Cons: "Since the flight was operated by Gol, Aerolineas Skyteam priority boarding there was not availiable even there was sold as an Aerolineas Argentinas flight"
Pros: "Check in person was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant kept speaking Spanish to me and got very irritated when I said that I don't speak Spanish. I was the only one she told to put my seat in upright position during the meal. Food is very mediocre. No leg room whatsoever... Also very noisy kid didn't help the impression on the flight"
Pros: "They acomódate my self on emergency seat right away, because I'm very tall and I really appreciated that. Service on board, were very attended at all the time and they tried to do the best with what they have."
Cons: "Blue headphones were not only working improperly (only one was with sound) but also short on stock. Seat was very tight."
Cons: "I was seated in the exit row and stowed my bag securely under the seat in front of me. As we pulled away from the gate, three of the flight staff "accosted" me in Spanish, and told me I had to stow my bag overhead; since the flight was full, there was no room for my bag overhead so the one English speaking flight attendant told me I had to move my bag and me to another seat. He thrust an emergency card- in English- in my face and I was shuffled to a seat across the aisle. Lunch pox contained a sandwich with some kind of meat and cheese. Drinks were room temperature. Several passengers were standing in the aisles when the plane pushed back from the gate and numerous seats were still in recline position when we took off."
Pros: "the crew memebers were nice"
Cons: "waited too long to board the plane as well as had everyone in line and they started calling by seat numbers, it was just a big mess"

Cons: "Very tinny the space for a long trip"
Pros: "All five flights that took within Argentina with aerolineas Argentina were on time! What more could you ask for?"

Pros: "The evening staff at Miami international airport was great, very helpful and kind"
Cons: "My flight that was supposed to leave in the afternoon was delayer and nobody told us till we got to the airport, the staff in the afternoon was rude."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Less than helpful ticketing agent. Didnt get my bags checked properly, so I had to get them rechecked at JFK. I got charged for having an extra bag, my climbing partner didn't. Lost my iPad on earlier flight, no one offered any help."
Pros: "Of the six flights we flew, all were on time. Also, the crew (pilots/flight attendants) were very professional and took their jobs seriously."
Cons: "I had no complaints. I had read other accounts of problems with the airline, but I didn't see that at all."
Pros: "Every flight I had with arrow Aerolinas Argentinas was smoothly run, friendly and timely to the best of their ability."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed due to weather, but professionally managed and kept to stated times"
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Good order and efficient."
Cons: "All fine with me."
Pros: "The boarding process of back to front was really efficient and thoughtful with the pandemic. And the smocks the FA wore."
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: "Check-in was terrible, the agent checked our suitcase and then found out that we can't take the flight and the suitcase was gone. After waiting 3 hours at Medellin the suitcase was still not found. We left , besides we missed half of our vacation day, and after calling a lot we got the suitcase back in Guatapé. So much trouble for us because the agent was not able to do the check-in properly."
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."
Pros: "The variety on the LATAM Play."

Pros: "Everything on time. 30 minutes ahead of schudle"
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Pros: "Quick check in online"
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late taking off and we missed our connecting flight."
Cons: "The check-in and boarding process was chaotic. Only one check-in station accepted credit cards to pay for check bags, creating a long delay when the printer broke."
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"

Cons: "Too tight, no entertaintment"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Pros: "Good service and food. Though food tray was small. not very many choices. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process in Lima was chaotic. I was to continue on the same plane from Miami and Lima to Buenos Aires, however, nobody mentioned I could stay on the same aircraft, so they made me go off the plane out the arriving area hall, again through security, which was a hassle, almost forgot my wrist watch..... all that to end up in the same gate to board the same plane. a total waste of time and energy...."
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: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Seat pitch"
Pros: "Vegan food please!!!"
Cons: "Las time change my AirPort"
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: "The flight Santiago Buenos Aires was delayed and no one informed us. The seats where unconfortable. The food basic."
Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
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 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: "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: "We never got boarded!! They oversold the flight and al the passengers without seats are left in line with no explanation! And extremely rude people at the counters. I understand the issues going on these days but to not even acknowledge hen people are asking them when is the next flight, is unacceptable! I will never book this airline again and expect my money back for today's no go :("

Pros: "Plane was boarded rear to front."
Cons: "Communication about which bag fees were required. Waaaay overpaid for bag fees."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Carry on forced check at door - same size I have used to fly on American and LATAM. Said nothing downstairs at baggage check, but then forced me to pay $30 at bording because they said it was too big. Pretty lousy. Also brief turbulence at the beginning and they closed the bathrooms for the rest of the smooth three hour flight."
Cons: "Complementary coffee, tea"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "More space between sits"
Cons: "The cost of this flight was too high for such a mediocre experience. Additionally after paying to bring a bag on board, there was difficulty in finding a space for it and the crew was only somewhat helpful."

Cons: "Sky Airlines lost my luggage! I couldn't check-in online, and then when we were running late, they almost didn't print our ticket out at the ticket counter. Sky Airlines lost my luggage on top of that! Still waiting for it now..."

Cons: "Rudeness of people at counter for check-in"

Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "If they didn't charge for carry on luggage, would had been perfect."
Pros: "Comfortable ride, once we got to the plane boarding was very fast as we used two doors to board"
Cons: "The plane arrived late and we had to move gates. We stood around for a very long time with no communication as for the hold on"
Pros: "We were on time even early"
Cons: "They don’t even serve water and had menu items missing. also the seating is WAY too tight and uncomfortabke"
Pros: "Stewards were professional"
Cons: "Gate attendant was too stupid to find my pre boarding authorization in the system. Child kicking the back of my chairman another child playing video game with sound on. No headphones"
Pros: "But the security at Santiago to the States was ridiculous. Tossing out water at the gate, hand checking luggage and a General all around rudeness. Good bye Chile."

I had to push to have them check that indeed we were going all the way to calama. They were convinced we weren’t and that we’d have to pay the baggage fee twice."
Pros: "Bad service overall"
Pros: "Crew very professional"
Pros: "Price. Had exit row so very roomy"
Cons: "No service"
Pros: "cheap, efficient, on time."
Cons: "Extremely tight. I'm 5.7 and 130 pds and could barely fit. Will definitely try to purchase an emergency exit for my return. That's the not upgrade possible. No business available. No free refreshment, even the water was for purchase only."
Pros: "Muy amable..l"
Cons: "Bebidas...no hay gratis."
Pros: "Staff is decently friendly"
Cons: "They should not allow reclining seats with such tiny amount of leg room"
Pros: "nice service"
Cons: "On our way from Santiago to Buenos Aires we had to wait to pick up our suitcases hours due to a strike. On our way back, one of our suitcases got lost. I am still waiting fir Skype to contact us.. ( +2 days )"
Pros: "Good service, no complaints."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and professional. Cokplimentary snack on such a short flight was appreciated"
Cons: "Crew did not tell us local time, or at least not in English, when landing. The time on my watch and phone matched what was on my itinerary for the layover. But we were actually 2 hours late! Missed my connection due to this hiccup. Pretty sure such things are WHY they always announce local time"
Cons: "They changed, until I left, the boarding gate three times. They gave me 27 at the check in counter, after a while monitors sent us to 24, then they directed us to 27 again, then to 26 and finally to gate 29. First the delay was 2 and a half hours, then three, then 4, then 7 hours. I was traveling for one meeting from one day coming back the next afternoon. With the 7 hour delay, I'd have to go directly from the airport, after a horrible night, to my board meeting. It was a no go. I declined to travel and expect a full refund"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation or proper update. Didn’t even give you a glass of water for a flight that was over three hours long (had to pay for everything). Booked it so people were cramped together while others had entire rows to themselves (on other flights I’ve been on flight attendants recognize this and help space out people). Horrible seats in general with no space and I am a very petite female and I felt uncomfortable. Horrible temperate control. Will not fly this airline again."
Cons: "The desk agents are rude and unhelpful. It almost as if they are mad in being there. My ticket showed I was allowed to have a bag up to 23kg however they made me pay overweight fees. The desk agent gave me the wrong gate so I missed the flight. I had to purchase a new ticket and they charged me for bauuage fees again. Worst experience ever"
Cons: "They look for everything in order to charge you the carry in baggage. Bad bad service. Never flighit with this airline again"
Pros: "On time arrival. A low cost flight that does not compromise on the essentials. You still get free check-in luggage. The seats are a bit narrow, but that's ok for a 3h flight."

Cons: "Tiny seats. Old planes. Charge for coffee or soda. They pack every row possible. Ridiculous carry on policy. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "They didn't even gave us water."
