Pros: "Avianca crew was great, flight was good."

Pros: "The crew was excelent"
Cons: "The fly was delayed."
Cons: "People were NOT following instructions at boarding time... even though they were giving us instructions about who was boarding... I mentioned it to the agent when I boarded and he replied “No, that’s not true” when I was seeing who was boarding and when... if families with children were called... even single travelers were boarding the general boarding line... nobody really cared"
Cons: "Delay. I missing my train in Miami"
Pros: "Overall everything went well. Boarding was easy, quick, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "I felt the space between rows is a bit tight and the food was fair."
Cons: "Airline employees at gate did not take the time to search passenger return flight in system, despite return being through Avianca and easy to find. This led to passenger missing flight. They ended up finding it after the missed flight and placing passenger in the following day's flight."
Pros: "Crew service inflight are very well trained."
Cons: "After I checked in online, I noticed that my flight was delayed from 9 pm to next day at 3 am. I called the help desk and after 40 minutes and 4 different people they said that in fact that the flight 008 from Bohota to Miami was delayed. Very Poor communication between company departments and poor communication alerts to costumers. In addittion, the only explanation from counter staff was "airplane maintance". Really? For an international flight from Bogota where you have located your main airplane base ? I do believe that land staff is very poorly train compared to inflight crew. Land staff has very poor supervision to improve costumer service."
Cons: "they changed my flight, and boarding take 2 hours, i hate this airline, three time i loose my time and money and they still own me money."
Pros: "Good service well kept airplanes"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Comfortable airplane. Crew was polite and helpful. I don’t usually eat in a plane, but the meal was not bad at all."
Cons: "First of all the flight was very late, so I missed my connection flight from Miami. I couldn’t get home on the other airline because it was full, so I had to buy another ticket to another city and had a family member pick me up, so we drove an additional hour. From the time I went to the airport in La Paz, took me 24 hours to get home. I had to work the next day."
Cons: "Cancelled flight 2 days before my departure without official mailing from avianca about the change."
Pros: "Crew is always smiling and pleasant"
Pros: "I like the the crew they were very nice and polite"
Cons: "Some of this stuff need to be a little more friendly and courteous"
Cons: "I had cancel my flight with Avianca due to hurricane Irma and the airline would not cancel. It does not want to return the money"
Cons: "Called "customer service" and they changed my tickets. Tried to rebook 3 times but each time was a problem and lost each of the 3 reservations because they can't take payments. They should not have changed anything to begging with. It's a trap! Now I have to figure out how to get my money back."
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "The same"
Cons: "Apparently our seats got sold to someone else and they had to send us to Panama and then Miami with another airline (Copa Airlines) with their oldest plane. Longest and slowest line at check in counter. Very disappointed. They said we were going to get a refund and haven't seen it yet."
Cons: "The direct flight to Miami was postpone at 1:00 in the morning. They sent me to Panama and then to Miami in the last back seat of the 2 flights. My suitcase is still in Panama. Not delivered in Miami. The flight Panama-Miami was really dirty. What a disaster!"
Cons: "Final destination flight was canceled and was not offered a refund for the hotel in my final destination and was only offered a $56 credit in the countries currency but I paid dollars. On the return flight I was give. A huge hassle because I had a carry on and a personal article. Avianca wanted me to check in my carry on but my flight landed in Miami at 2:30am. The reason I took a carry on was so that I would not have to wait for suitcase. Would never fly with them again. They can keep their credit as far I am concerned."
Pros: "Much better boarding experience and many new movies to choose from. I watched the new Beauty and the Beast."
Cons: "Their protocols for taking off and landing are a little dated. Passengers are not allowed to use blankets during take off/landing, also all window shades have to be open. They were very serious about it."
Pros: "Modern comforts, pleasantries, good service, clean, spacious Searle Inc. Great experience. Felt like flying in the old days. Great planes."
Pros: "Wonderful surprise to have a nice meal, blanket and pillow on a 4 hour flight. Very impressed with the comfort of coach"
Pros: "fly was very good the crew very professional and good service"
Cons: "In Medellin the check in is very bad you have to stay in the line with the the people flying domestic fly.. In Miami when I received my luggage was broken and in addition we have to wait for the personal the avianca because they were in lunch time and according with a "suppervisor" they were fighting My name is Rene Gutierrez my phone number 1-305-502-2111"
Cons: "the food between bog and mia was horrible a very hard and greasy piece of meat. the entertainment system had to be rebooted 4 times, it started working one hour into the flight."
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Pros: "On the flight down from Miami to Cartagena, we did not expect a meal...and since we are all vegetarians, pretty much did not get one, but the flight attendants gave us what they could. I called Avianca and requested vegetarian and received for all 6 of us! Also, pleased that my whole family was seated in one row."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Pros: "The punctuality is good, the crew is good."
Cons: "How can you sell a full fight on an Airbus A-330 and not have enough food for everyone?! On this flight, me and my son were left without a hot breakfast and their excuse was "sorry, we ran out" so we got only the leftovers from the serving trays. It's sad how airlines keep getting worst by the day."
Cons: "Bad service, worst customer service, we asked for vegetarian meals and never served even though they were confirmed."
Pros: "Very nice flight. On time and great service!"
Cons: "Headphone jack didn't work correctly. Had to hold it in for as long as I wanted to listen to the tv"
Pros: "All was really easy and good! Me and my Family really enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "Sure. I had booked a two week vacation in Brazil. All hotels, car rental and guides booked. Copa changed my fligjt at the last minute and out of the 14 days vacatipn I had in Brazil, they would have me spend 6 days in Panama City!!! Lost of small fortune with hotels, car rentals amd had to buy another ticket with Latam. They are a scam!!"
Cons: "Due the COVID-19 El Salvador closed its boarders, leaving me unable to fly. I have sent two emails, called and spoke to a customer service representative who treated me unprofessionally and rude. After that I have been calling numerous times with a wait of over 25 minutes each time and I still have to answer from you as a company. I am extremely disappointed and want an answer soon."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food very average"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and nice"
Pros: "Great service, flight both ways on time, connection flights perfect everything in same concord, baggage transfer no issues, will Flight again with Copa for sure"
Pros: "This is a full service airline that serves complimentary food and movies for a similar cost as low-end airlines like Spirit or Frontier. I was traveling from Punta Cana DR to Denver but had connects in Panama City & Miami. Because 3 flights is a long day of traveling I chose the emergency isle for my flight from Panama-Miami so i could stretch out with the extra leg room. Because I didn't speak fluent Spanish though, the crew had to move my seat. They upgraded me to 1st class! Amazing airline! Incredible crew! Shame most airlines in the US with their FU attitude don't operate this way."
Pros: "The crew on all of the flights were all very nice. At the end of the day, my suitcase did end up getting shipped to my house within a few days. It was just a little unorganized throughout the process of tracking it down."
Cons: "Following this, my flight in Bogota left 3 hours late. Not only did we board at the time we were supposed to be leaving, but then sat on the runway for an hour and a half before having to go back to the gate to refuel.... All passengers sat on the plane for 3 hours in Bogota before we ever took off with little to no communication as to why. Upon landing in Miami, my bag was then missing which honestly wasn't a big deal - I knew I'd get it back eventually. But with my new flight, I wasn't entirely sure which flight my bag should be with and which airlines (Copa or Avianca) I should go to regarding it. The staff for both were incredibly rude. My suitcase was the one missing and I was the happier, nicer one out of everyone I spoke to. I was told it would be shipped to my house which was great until I got an email saying I could pick up my suitcase at the airport. After searching for 2 hours of where to go and all staff pointing me to a different spot and offering little help, I tried calling the Avianca number I was given for any questions. Unfortunately, there wasn't going to be anyone who spoke English in until after my flight took off. After getting to my final destination, I tried calling the number again to try and sort out where my suitcase was and no one spoke English or could direct me to someone who could. I had to have my friend in Cali call the main office for me to find that my bad was still in Bogota after all of that."
Pros: "Check in was quick & easy. the crew were efficient and friendly. It is a Central and South American airline so announcements were mostly in Spanish but the crew were bilingual and translated announcements into English. The meal was good. No fee to check a bag."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and was bilingual which made the flight better"
Cons: "It was a lot of turbulence and the plane dropped drastically during the flight. No one spoke English to explain the searches, reason for change in seats. It was difficult to communicate with staff prior to boarding."
Cons: "Plane with old Business class seats that were not worth the price of a business class airfare"
Cons: "The quantity of the food was few"
Pros: "Boarding is very orderly. Flights are always on time with Copa, which makes them a very reliable carrier. Planes are modern, clean and well maintained. Copa offers free headphones, meal and drinks, which is very rare on short flights. I was glad to enter a cool plane, as the Tocumen Airport was without air conditioning service."
Cons: "Tocumen Airport is always crowded, noisy and this time around was without air conditioning. As their main costumer, Copa Airlines should pressure the airport authorities to keep a standby AC system in place or replace it with one that can better handle extreme traffic of people."
Cons: "very cold on the plane and don't provide blankets!"
Pros: "Boarding process went very smooth and plenty of legroom and overhead storage"
Cons: "Volume didn't work on armrest . Volume was stuck on very high volume making the in flight movie not watchable. No choice for food"
Cons: "Everyone everything"
Pros: "Nothing. They said I was a no show on Wednesday Miami Panama and cancelled my reservation. They made me go to The airport and didn't even apologize. Unbelievable mistake."
Cons: "The way I was treated"
Pros: "Please see above"
Cons: "Wheel chair service was bad"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"

Pros: "I wish other airlines were as nice a meal, movie, free headphones, and a drink . I had wine ooh yeah"

Pros: "smooth flight, attendants were very polite"
Cons: "did not offer a bottle of water, sodas were restricted at a small cup"
Pros: "Excellent thank you very much"
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized."

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: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Cons: "Never made flight because of Latham delays"
Cons: "Lost my flight after connection with Turkish arrived late and lost my luggage, Latam has no office in Chicago so i had to call, didn't assist me on the phone with changing my flight, sent me to speak with American airlines that was operating the flight, asked for a supervisor on the phone but they declined. Second day at airport i found out they booked me on a three leg flight home at 8 AM althought i was on the phone with them at 1:30 AM and I was never informed about the flight they offered at 8 AM. I ended up paying again for a flight with United the same day."
Pros: "Nice flight, enjoyed the food, excellent service."
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Pros: "The flight itself was great because there were personal TVs for everyone that had a wide selection of movies and games. It had more categories on it but little time to explore in the short plane ride after the movie from BWI to MIA. Great pilot, little motion sickness and great staff."
Cons: "I did not like how I came with my family and the clerks did not even try to seat us together, just gave us our tickets and sent us on our way, even after mentioning we had under age kids with us and a 2 year old who WILL CRY if not seated next to my other 2 family members."
Cons: "no customer serve no help"
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. This was an overnight flight and the noise was very low."

Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Punctuality. attention of stewardesses"
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: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Pros: "First of all, all of the information regarding the flight listed the carrier as Latam. However, the flight was actually an American flight. Based on the confusion I missed my outgoing flight. Thereafter I purchased a oneway ticket to Medellin on another airline only to learn that they cancelled my return flight. They wanted to charge me almost $600 to rebook! I ended purchasing a ticket with different carrier. Money paid to Latam was wasted."
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: "Once I was aboard my flight in Lima LA 2514 the attendants were helpful."
Cons: "When I arrived to Jorge Chavez the ticket counter was down. I waited for 20 minutes and Brunella eventually gave me a boarding pass. The pass was hand written and missing information but she assured me it would be fine. When I attempted to go through security they informed me this wasn't a boarding pass and was missing information. They said I would have to go back downstairs to the desk again. have a visible disability that affects the way I walk, and typically I do not require a wheelchair. I give myself enough time to get to my destination, but thanks to Brunella I was running incredibly late. I finally arrived though my flight was then rerouted to Orlando due to weather conditions at Miami and never arrived in Miami. The pilot of this flight LA2514 decided he was done and wouldn't fly there at all. The passengers were informed they would take buses to Miami."
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "Not much since not only were we screened by the airport authorities but also by Latam. I purchased some water after security but had to leave it since they would not allow it on the plane. Had they let us know about this sooner I could have saved money."
Cons: "The Latam personnel who searched our bags prior to boarding put on gloves which I though was very good. The bad part was that I saw 2 members of the search party sneeze into the gloves and touch their noses without changing gloves. How disgusting!!! Never Latam again! I would rather pay a few dollars more and not put up with this health violation."
Pros: "Smooth flight landed a little ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had an isle seat on a red eye flight and I kept in my seat, attendants would walk by without disregard that people were sleeping and bump into them. I always fly window but there were no more available. I didn't get any drink or food but I did smell it when it was being served."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Weak Service"
Pros: "The planes were new and immaculate, seats were comfortable, we were welcomed by the flight crew upon embarking, and there was a wonderful selection of entertainment."

Cons: "worst service ever"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats wear decently comfortable, bathroom was clean"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than usual and was late to take off"
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
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. 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.

Fortunately, my bank has granted me a chargeback although I was forced to pay more for a last minute ticket of another airline at their counter. I am surprised this airline is in business.
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: "The baggage it wasn’t included in my ticket so the prices was more expensive also the reservation was a big problem with your company kayak never show up my ticket in the aerolínea."
Pros: "Check in at the airport was very helpful"
Cons: "Customer service at the airport is terrible, had a hard time with two employees with attitude and poor customer service"
Pros: "Puntuality the most"
Pros: "Seat uncomfortable. Crew okay. No space"
Pros: "The plane was new. For a low cost airline the seats were confortable for a short trip."
Cons: "Terrible airline. No one seems to know what they are doing. Very unprofessional, bad experience from beginning to end"
Cons: "Seats more comfortable, please!!"
Pros: "Not at all!"
Cons: "Worst experience ever!"
Pros: "Nothing at all. Rude crew. Tricky rates! I know that is a low cost fly, but for the first time in my life this people charged me for the check in. Unbelievable"
Cons: "Really, all! Money grab low cost airline! The worst experience ever!"
Pros: "I first thought the price/value was good; however, I had to pay to check in, I had to pay for my bags, I had to pay for water."
Cons: "Everything. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Staff at the airport"
Cons: "I didn’t know that you had to check in at least two hours before the flight. Had to purchase another one later in the evening. Staff at information at the airport were incredibly helpful!"
Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Efficient crew, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Children should not be seated in emergency rows— this delayed our flight almost an hour."
Pros: "I arrived safely in Bogota."
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."
