Wingo changed departure time 3 times and kept us moving from one gate to a different one. A 1 one flight took me more than 8 hours. Don't fly wit Wingo, the worst experience ever
Nothing the vendor services and overall process was not an experience I would ever want to revisit again .

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: "Great Airline, Positive customer experience!"
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 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: "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!"
Pros: "thank you for the patience you have with passengers and children, very grateful thousand thanks Avianca"
Cons: "Avianca revised my itinerary 7 times while I was trying to enjoy my vacation generating severe stress to the point where I could not sleep or eat properly. I spent over 150mins of my once in a lifetime Galápagos vacation dealing w/ Avianca’s useless customer service over the phone trying to resolve"
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: "They lost my luggage"
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: "Crew attention in flight"
Cons: "Food, the crew couldn’t guide me correctly and told me to pick up my baggage in Guayaquil and I had to pick it up in Quito, they lied to me for the second time"
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"
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: "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."
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."
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: "El servicio."
Cons: "El avion no era internacional, sin embargo, era por las huelgas de los pilotos."
Pros: "Very friendly service and they treat you like a guest"
Cons: "More vegetarian or at least healthier meal options"
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."
Pros: "In seat entertainment. Staff was lovely and helpful. Ease of checking me in when my flight was delayed."
Cons: "Food was not good."
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."
Cons: "This was the first segment of an itinerary ending in Miami. There was no personnel available for check in 3 hours prior to departure. They claimed it wasn't an international flight. They told me at 330am, that they would be open to check in at 4am.... it was 420am before anyone showed up at the check in desk. I had requested a wheelchair...I was told I had to walk about 60 yards to the other side of the concourse for the wheelchair, that they could not call for the wheelchair to meet me at the check in position"
Cons: "There was a delay in Cartagena and i waited 12 hours To get To bogota, not even At Armenia yet"
Pros: "good crew. great seats."
Cons: "I would like to have tv screens in flights from Bogota to Panama. No entertainment at all. But from Panama to Miami it was perfect."
Cons: "Que respeten los horarios de vuelos."
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 was great!"
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: "There were no vegetarian lunch options."
Pros: "It was a nice and short flight. The food given to us was quite good, even though it was shorter than 2 hours."
Cons: "No air in plane while boarding so temperatures we're easily over 100 degrees in the cabin"
Pros: "Crew on copa was wonderful!"
Cons: "So hot in the plane as we sat on the plane waiting to go I was actually getting sick!"
Pros: "Bety good service abording..."
Cons: "The entreteniment"
Pros: "The flight was only an hour and a half yet we weee given a hot meal, a snack, and complimentary (alcoholic) beverages. Boarding was organized and timely, the crew was friendly. Couldn’t have asked for more. Smoothest flight experience I’ve had in a while."
Pros: "Nice wide seat."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline much at all. Food only so so."
Cons: "Security was redundant and disorganized. Gate staff were uninformitive."
Cons: "Did not happen, forces to spend the night in Panamá due to airline miss-management and miss-planing. Ruined my trip!!"
Pros: "Atención and food"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Everything was very quick"
Pros: "I slept through the entire trip."
Pros: "Very Punctual"
Cons: "No entertainment on board. The food was TERRIBLE!!! Beverages were OK"
Pros: "courtesy, punctuality and comfort."
Cons: "Didn't allow me to board since less than 1 hour before flight (due to late connection on other carrier). Tried to gouge me for another $1500 to catch next flight. Awful customer service. Buy travel insurance if using copa! Expensive lesson"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology, service on board was terrible and unfriendly. Had to run to get to connecting flight. No help from airline staff. Avoid Copa at all costs. Don't fly Copa!"
Pros: "nice crew tribulation."
Cons: "there were no food options, only chicken. even though it was a shot fly, we didn't have a screen for music or other entertainment."
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"
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "Smooth trip no delays of any kind. The airlines used a newer plane and each seat had its only tv for watching your own movie or play some games, that will always be a big plus for me. Also they provided snacks and drinks"
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: "Got bumped from flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed on bogota no help went we got to panama to get the next flight information"
Cons: "We flew from Quito to Cuenca, Ecuador and after circling the city several times the pilot announced we were going back to Quito in order to deal with an equipment issue. I appreciate the move from a safety standpoint, the passengers were given no information about WHY we were going back or how long it would take."
Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"
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"
Pros: "Great food, great crew assistant"
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: "After snow delayed departure from Newark, we have made it as far as Panama City, Panama. Our bags, apparently, are in Quito, Equador! Such fun!"
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: "I had to run to catch my flight"
