Cons: "I had been checked in and when I arrived at the gate they told me and my 13 year old son that we could not fly on our direct flight to Medellín because it was overbooked and they had decided to change planes. Absolutely ridiculous, it was about 20-30 passengers that were denied boarding, including us. They sent us on a plane through Bogota, then to Medellín, arriving 7 hours later and only with a dumb breakfast voucher. I spoke to them that I had an important medical appointment for which I was travelling for, it did not matter. They made no no accommodations whatsoever."

It was un possible to know how much Weight i could pack and bring with me. It was unavailable to choose a kosher meal. But overall it was un possible to explain those issues to the representatives. Each one transfer me to another one, or just transfer me to a someone that speaks spanish, with no reason. That was awful. I was 2 hours on the phone with avianca trying to solve those issues. but i gave it up. It was un possible at all. That's a shame."

Cons: "Eveytime I go to Colombia my first option has always been avianca. However this last time was not like before. After the merge with Taca I noticed and felt the difference. When I purchase a ticket with Avianca I expect Avianca service and airplanes. I can tell that the airplanes are Taca not Avianca and that is very upsetting. The Taca airplanes are extremely uncomfortable and small. My tickets to Colombia are not cheap. If I am going to pay $1,000 for a ticket a expect a comfortable flight. I am seriously considering flying with American airlines from now on..."
Pros: "The flight was on time, the service was excellent."
Pros: "It was my first time flying and I almost missed my flight. I was at the wrong gate. When realized my mistake I started walking over to the right gate, and they were asking for me. They told me to run towards the plane entrance as it was almost departing. I later came to find out that they called my emergency contact to ask where I was. I feel that no other airline would have done this. For that reason I will only use Avianca Airlines to travel to Colombia, or other countries in South America."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Luggage has been lost and comminication around finding it had been poor"
Pros: "modern planes with personal TVs ."

Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no explanation created a nightmare for us and latam did not step up. Very disappointing"
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."

Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "Quick comfortable trip."
Cons: "Some food or drinks"

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: "Window seat & no one sat next to me"
Cons: "Customer service at baggage check in desk. Very very poor and slow"
Cons: "Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade."
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Inform people of the fee of about $50 that needs to be paid to enter the island!"
Pros: "You made it possible to change my flight to one earlier"
Cons: "The food"
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: "Couldn’t check in on line"
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."

Pros: "Cheap flight, decent service, clean and safe plane overall"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour but no communication from the airline as to why"

Cons: "The turn around resulting Ina five hour delay"
Cons: "Hidden bag fees make this airline a low value-for-money option."
Pros: "Se retrasaron varios vuelos, aeropuerto abarrotado y sin espacio. No comentan nada a Los pasajeros, no ofrecen in vaso con agua, se retrasaron en la salida"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "Far too tight seating for an international long haul flight. Every airline decides how many rows to pack into their jets. LATAM packed this plane so tight you are wedges into the seat with hardly any space to get comfortable."
Pros: "Nice flight, nice plane. Food needs improvement"
Cons: "Ridiculous long time standing for boarding. This needs to be improved."
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"
Cons: "Arriving in SCL on an international flight is the pits. Avoid"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours Making us be late for our connection. We made it to the flight but it was a real hassle."

Cons: "NO LEG ROOM! The worst!"
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: "nice space in business. Great airline !"
Cons: "the meal I chose was too small. I landed in Bogota hungry. But it was my fault"
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "EL EQUIPAJE NO LO MANDARON HASTA DESTINO FINAL Y SE PERDIO"
Pros: "Despite having a high "Sapphire" status with this One World Partner and being promised "preferente" seats by the airline when I reserved seats months ago, I was unable to view the seats or check in online. Both their App and their online system were down and unavailable. We were never able to view our actual seats online. The "preferred seats" my group on 5 could not have been worse!! We were seated consistently in row 11 or the very last row of the aircraft immediately in front of the lavatory, where the seats do not recline at all and where you hear and smell the bathroom for the entire flight.. There was NO space to breathe in our seats. I have traveled on dozens of airlines and this experience and these seats were the WORST! After this happened once, I specifically asked to insure that it would not happen again and was told that seats on my next flights were good but they were the same horrible seats. Part of our itinerary was on LAN and part was on TAM, who have now combined into 1 airline, but still operate on separate systems. So LAN customer service could not see the seats for TAM flights and vice versa. Their online system reflected a changed time for our return flight from 145pm to 250pm from Rio. We verified it 3 times (even though we could not check in or view our seats because of "technical difficulties" we could see the new departure tie, and the change was confirmed by our Sheraton concierge, but when we arrived to the airport they informed us that we had arrived to late for our 145pm flight! We showed them the app that showed our flight was changed to 250pm and they could not explain the problem. We were delayed 4 hours and arrived too late for dinner in Santiago. The final 4 hour flight at 4am flight from Santiago to Lima was torture. The seat in front was literally 6 inches in front of my face when they reclined and I could not recline. It was absolute TORTURE! Avoid this airline! To add the agony, they have lost my bag and do not know where it is!"
Cons: "Horrible seats even for "preferred" status clients. Unreliable and unavailable online service to check in and confirm seats. Two airlines who cannot view or help with the other's flights or even view seats or accurate flight information pretend to call themselves one airline. Lost luggage! Nearly impossible credit card payment system would not accept American credit cards"
Pros: "Crew Attention"
Pros: "How it moved"
Cons: "That it didn't move too much."
Pros: "Cabin crew excellent!"
Cons: "A little miffed by having to deboard and reboard on the outbound leg because an air conditioning problem"
Pros: "I was able to move my seat to a middle seat and got to watch."
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!!"
Cons: "Waiting time"
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: "On time"
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."
Pros: "Just shat you expect from a low cost airline company"
Cons: "NO me gusto que cancelaran el vuelo y el plan de contingencia fuera simplemente irnos 6 horas despues donde hubiera disponibilidad. La falta de comunicación, la falta de gestión con las personas, la falta de información incluso en el call center"
Pros: "Lor cost carriers have to be fast and efficient, this flight was just so. The seats are quite good."
Cons: "The boarding line was too long and slow."
Pros: "El precio"
Cons: "El avion es muuy incomodo, mido 1,75 y mis piernas van completamente pegadas al asiento de al frente, el proceso de Checkin en Bogota, es un desastre, muy pocas personas, se nota que no estan bien capacitadas."
