Cons: "The food has few to none vegetarian/vegan options. These days more and more people are trying to eat in a less cruel and healthier way. It would be great if you could keep up with that trend =) Otherwise it would really make me (and a lot of other people) happy if the disposable items such as cutlery and packaging were optional, so to reduce the plastic waste.

Cons: "The very ugliest seats. The last ones don't go back to sleep."
Cons: "I cant say that it was good since i didnt take the flight. I had to make a change so it was cheaper to just fly with some one else rather then pay to make a change with Copa. On the way down it was not that bad. I was just not happy with the change price but it is what it is."

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.

Cons: "Aerolíneas charges exorbitant prices for luggage - the 1st suitcase is $40 (USD) and additional luggage is $80 each. When purchasing tickets, it was not stated that luggage fees may apply, and when we checked the luggage we weren’t how much the baggage fees we’re until we went to another counter."

Cons: "my flight was delayed one day due to overbooking, basically they gave my place to someone else. I lost one day of accommodation at destination and had to pay another one in Buenos Aires for which they reimburse max 55 usd, and when you wait fir reimbursement those guys move so slow you won’t believe is true, imagine you have also some people before you- i waited for 2h and 30 min and had 5 people before me.

Cons: "Entertainment doesn't apply."
Pros: "First time first class. Not expected. Super comfortable."
Cons: "We were in the exit row. They made us put our light jackets in the overhead bin while letting 4 others keep them in their laps. When I pointed to the other jackets, the two attendants looked at them and then just moved on. 9 flights in 21 days, all flight attendants on the other airlines we flew were friendly and pleasant. Aerolineas Argentinas attendants were grim, unfriendly, and we believe singled us out for being from the US."

Pros: "Plane was fine."

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: "Overall a good experience."
Pros: "Everything was great."
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."
Cons: "U have to pay for everythings"
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: "food was terrible, I was traveling with my 3 year old son and I was never offered a meal for kids, if there's one. seats are always uncomfortable;/"
Cons: "Child behind my seat was loud kicked my seat and parents did nothing."
Cons: "We were traveling with 2 children. Seats assigned: rows 15, 18, 32, and 38. Nobody in the crew (from the desk to the plane) was able to solve the problem. We solved it swapping seats with other passengers. We were 4 with 3 carry-on bags. The person who was in charge was very rude. They don't allow us to carry any of them in the cabin and 1 arrived broken. I had no problems like this before, With full flights like this is normal to have to send some luggage that you expect in the cabin to the hold, but in this case the crew was very unclear and rude. The food: it was a short flight and they give us our snack just seconds before the landing. Finally, they lost 1 of our bags. Waiting to see if it appears."
Pros: "Flight was on time, we left early and arrived early! Flight attendants were very kind."
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: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Food and drink service not given. There was no turbulence to justify this failure, and flight was over an hour long, allowing sufficient time to provide it. Poor communication of departure delay."
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: "Smooth flight, on time"
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: "El avión era un 787-9 en excelente estado y muy cómodo La tripulación muy amable"
Cons: "El snack era un croissant jamón-queso que venía casi congelado, malisimo"
Pros: "customer service in Bogota"

Pros: "Flight on time,perfect schedule and mail info"
Flight check in Lima to Cusco all went very smoothly and plane boarded on time. All in all a great experience for a low cost fare.
Don’t ever book with them. They are worse than Ryanair and you will end up paying more for the worse possible airline and deal with ignorant people who don’t know what “customer” is. Avoid at all costs
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 :("

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.

Also brief turbulence at the beginning and they closed the bathrooms for the rest of the smooth three hour flight."
Cons: "Complementary coffee, tea"

Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"

Cons: "Paying for carry on bag was expensive"
Pros: "The crew that we had direct contact with were nice. The baggage screeners are misinformed."
Cons: "We were removed from our flight to bariloche because of an issue with our checked bags. The issue was that we had some AAA alkaline batteries in our bags. We were told this is in violation of international standards. It is not. We missed our flight because of this."
Cons: "Rudeness of people at counter for check-in"
Pros: "Que hicieran claras las reglas de llevar equipaje de mano, pues es un engaño y una estafa. Nuestra maleta de mano ha sido adquirida en Europa para vuelos low cost"
Pros: "Bad service also i find out my pscreption sun glass is missing"
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."

Pros: "Preço bom"
Cons: "Muito apertado e não limpo antes de entrarmos no aviao"

Cons: "At check in they told us that we only had one leg of our trip, from puerto montt to Santiago, instead of all the way through to calama. 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: "La amabilidad"

Pros: "Good service, no complaints."
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: "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."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Crew did not collect trash, so passengers stuffed trash in the seats and was not cleaned between flights."
They said that i never bought the flight and cancelled my ticket. I had to pay 200,000 pesos for taxi and book a hotel because there were no other flights that night. I will never use expedia for flight booking again.
The flight was delayed for starters. But it’s such a short flight so everything was okay for the price. Seats don’t recline and no refreshments were offered but once again, the flight was quick and smooth.
Me cobraron demasiado por una maleta de mano
I could'nt make checkin by internet im from another country the aplication did not work i told them and they charge me becuase of that, i had seat reserve and still they charge me.
Very good airlines viva love it 💕
The flights on time, they call in order of rows and more best they call by rows starting from front to end when arrivals and that avoid the passenger be together snd come out in order.
We missed our flight because no one spoke english and we had issues with documents and by the time we fix it was too late to make our flight and then we had to pay $600 to book with a different airline
Nada funciona en el internet para cobrater 70 dolares x equipaje
They broke my siutcase and I wanna my money back a new siutcase
Flight from Cartagena - Bogota - Lima. When I arrived at the airline counter in Cartagena to fly to Bogota the reps requested a PCR test result from me although for travel to Peru within 24 hours, only an antigen test is required, not a PCR test. I had a negative Covid antigen test result from the airport clinic just before checking in for the flight. Subesequent to that, I requested that that the airline at least honor the flight from Cartagena to Bogota thinking that when I arrived in Bogota, as it is a more international airport, I would be able to convince a manager there that the current travel regulations to Peru only require a Covid antigen test within 24 hours of travel to Peru. The airline reps and manager refused to even honor my flight ticket from Cartagena to Bogota athough no Covid test at all is required for travel within Colombia. The female attendants scoffed at me. Furthermore, the male staff person got incredibly aggressive with me in front of everyone in the airport to the point where I had to step back thinking he was going to get physical with me. In all of my travel to 54 countries and 51 years of travel, I have never been treated this poorly by an airline. I had to go to the counter of another airline where I was able to purchase another ticket to Bogota and was able to fly out that hour by paying for another ticket. Fortunately, my bank has granted me a chargeback although I was forced to pay more for a ticket purchased at the counter of another airline. I am SURPRISED this Viva Airlines is even in business!
Worst experience with an airline in 51 years and 54 countries of international travel. Reserved a flight from Cartagena - Bogota - Lima.

I guess my comment is on the extras and as they charge for it, you know is a low cost service, but the extras or unknown could be charged at a much normal rate.

Cons: "Having to PAY to check in at the airport, having to PAY to carry on a bag... this is ridiculous. What seemed a bargain at first glance ended up costing me WAY more than buying a more comfortable airline with more amenities. They are the Spirit Airlines of Colombia. Avoid them."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Not much. The pilot was communicative."
Cons: "The staff were pushy and rude to me when they told me at the gate, when I was about to board, that I could not have a backpack and small purse. This is not what I understood when booking and is not clearly explained at the time of purchase. One attendant at the gate in particular was forceful and rude when insisting that I pay over $66 in cash at a moment when going to the ATM would mean potentially missing boarding and not arriving back in time to the gate. This process, which I agreed to because two staff members gave me the impression that I could not travel on the flight unless I paid right there instantly in CASH (completely ridiculous), caused me anxiety and took a long time, too long given the urgency of boarding the flight. I had to wait for change for 5 minutes and as a result, I was the last one to board. It should be noted that this process of paying for a maleta in hand at the gate had been preceded by having to pay over $20 in cash to print a boarding pass, which required another ATM withdrawal and fee. This is a weak and predatory business model, which seeks to exploit people’s need to travel and their anxiety. This was carried out in a completely unprofessional and manipulative manner by the staff members. This kind of behavior is unacceptable and exploitative."
Cons: "Paying to print out a boarding pass. Paying nearly as much for a checked bag as the flight itself"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue which resulted in a missed connecting flight. Luggage was also lost and the United Airlines pawned me off to Air Canada. Air Canada flight was canceled and the second flight was delayed by 4 hours. Luggage has still not been located."
Cons: "The only airline that charged me for a damn backpack"
Pros: "no delay in departure and on-time arrival"
Cons: "Had to pay for baggage exceeding 6 kilos in weight. Had to find the internet cafe at the airport and pay to print our boarding passes. Agent at the gate would not print nor was there a kiosk to print it."
Cons: "Purchase directly from VivaColombia website or not at all. We were forced to pay $40 each in additional fees to board the plane (including a fee to print our boarding passes) all which we weren’t expecting. Boarding was a mess, the crew were nice."
Pros: "i arrived"
Cons: "extra fees"
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag although I had taken it inside all planes . They lost my baggage for two hours and nobody was responsive. Very poor management including the supervisor. Nobody spoke English."
Cons: "They appear to be cheap but they charge for any small thing including printing a boarding pass and also checkin a carry on. Which overall turns out to be way more expensive that other airlines. Besides their customer service is very bad. they lost my baggage and didn't explain anything for more than 2 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and professional"
Cons: "Not a dislike, but the boarding process was different than USA."
Pros: "Siendo una compañia colombiana, por lo menos regalen el cafe y no instantaneo. Que pena"
Cons: "Hay que pagar por todo adicional y esos costos son altísimos, por ejemplo el agua cuesta dos solares, almpahar la maleta en el counter sale carísima al final termine pagando lo de un tkt en una aerolínea comercial cualquiera, sillas estrechas, la atención muy mala y no hay nada de entretenimiento abordó..... no volveré a volar nunca más en esa aerolínea!!! Pésima"
Cons: "They won't print your ticket at the check in counter and you can't use an online boarding pass. You have to print one from home or use an internet cafe at the airport that charges $6 to print a single sheet of paper. They jam your carry on bag into a small box. Boarding took longer than the flight! The seats are incredibly cramped yet they recline all the way back, so you're likely to have someone in your lap for the entire trip. Absolutely horrible. Nothing like other high quality discount airlines such as Air Asia which at least treat you like a human being."
Cons: "I booked without realizing that you need to pay for your luggage separately, pay $10 to print your boarding pass and of course pay for all food and beverages. What a pain, not enjoyable."
Pros: "That I got to my destination."
Cons: "The wait time of eight hours. Also that they charged me to print my ticket, and I was charged for a very small carry-on item."
Pros: "Fast, good service."
Pros: "For a low cost company actually the experience was better than others. At least the seat could go back a little."
