Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Yes"

Cons: "I arribes at the airport 1 he before the original flight time because the flight was delayed 50 minutes. Counter told me I couldn't check in my luggage anymore. Avianca was using any possible excuse to give seats to stand by passengers from other flights. There were very long lines of stand by people at the Avianca area."

Pros: "Free alcohol"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight after I called to verify this didn't happen. The night crew in LAX (11/22) were rude, unhelpful and bad people. If I were a manager I would have fired everyone. I will never use Avianca again"

Pros: "Crew was great and friendly. The red-eye flight was half empty so I had a row to myself to sleep."
Cons: "I called two weeks before the flight to confirm my specific sport gear baggage fees (surfboard bag). They confirmed it would be $100 each way on Avianca. When I arrived, surprise, they said it’s busy season so now it’s $150 each way. Felt like they scam people when you have no choice at checkin."

Cons: "The tv never worked on row 35 efg. After the flight attendant refreshed the system 3 times, it still didn't work. Also, I heard the guy in front had auxillary issue too so he ended up playing games on his phone over finishing a movie he was watching. The flight attendant did offer to allow my friends and I switch seats to a seat where the tv worked (hence 3 stars, or else i would have rate a 1). We decided to stay at our seat and just enjoy the ride."

Pros: "Avianca is a great company will definitely fly with them again."

Cons: "Loved everything!"

Cons: "El desayuno estaba un poco frio"

Cons: "Check in luggage has change, there should be a notification of how many luggages you are permitted prior to purchasing or be able to purchase extra if needed prior to arriving at airport"

Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection"
Cons: "I'm vegetarian, only ham and cheese sandwich"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The check in line at the airport was way too slow. When we got to the clerk she told us that we better run to the boarding area. They full the plane with passengers going to South America and the luggage for people going to san salvador was left at LAX. That was on Monday today is Thursday and the luggage still in LA. I don't think will be using this airline again."

Pros: "Friendly people attended to you at all times when checking in and boarding, and assisted people to getting to the window that were in line to check in. Friendly and attentive crew. The movies were free and high quality options. Loved watching Brooklyn, Carol, Suffregette, and Bajo el Abrazo de la Serpiente., to and from L.A. Food and drinks were served. Direct flight and good price"
Cons: "The food could have been a little better, though I hate to complain since you rarely get food on a flight now. The Chicken pasta was excellent. the accompanying salad and snack were not that great."

Pros: "Very professional service, nice people, newer airplane, plenty of entertainment options, got my luggage where it needed to go despite 2 connections."
Cons: "I was put in a seat before the exit row, meaning my chair did not recline for a 5 hour flight. In addition, the seat in front of me was at least 3-5 inches closer than any other seat on the plane. I understand there are these seats on the plane, I just wish I would have known prior or been given the option to change seats."

Cons: "No blankets on my way back"

Pros: "On time, good entertainment options. Second round food and beverage option not bad."
Cons: "Baggage check-in at LAX was slow and inefficient. Despite the few passengers, the 2 check-in agents took an exceedingly long time to check in passengers. At one point, there was a 10 minute gap in which no one was being checked in despite the fact that the two clerks had already finished with the previous passengers. They spent the 10 minutes doing paperwork at the counter and not checking in passengers."

Cons: "Purchased a round-trip in and out of El Salvador. On the return to El Salvador, ticket agents made me purchase a one-way return to the United States, claiming that I would not be allowed to enter El Salvador otherwise since I do not have residency there. Despite repeatedly explaining to them that I had done this multiple time before on other airlines, and that immigration in El Salvador does NOT ask for proof of return, they would not let me board unless I purchased a return ticket to the United States. As expected, I was NOT asked for ANY proof of return when entering El Salvador. The Avianca staff was uninformed, wrong, and rude. They showed no interest in listening to us or helping us solve this problem. I will now have to call and cancel this ticket, and fight to get the $25 ticketing fee refunded. Do not expect great service from Avianca."

Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4.

Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."

I missed a big birthday event I was throwing for my class that I teach, lost out on money spent for the event and missed out on all the memories made that night. I never got to leave, ended up cancelling my flight. What a waste of time. Seems to always happen when I fly through United."

Pros: "Oh all try other airline next time"
Cons: "2hours and 30 minutes delay time for unreasonable issue And a bayless little drink for 8 dollars + tax really."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air Canada flight from Ontario to SFO was operated by United. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and we ended up missing our connection. The customer service on the phone from both Air Canada and United would not take responsibility and continued to advise to call the other company to reschedule the flight. Not only did we miss our connection but our checked bag was rerouted onto another flight with no formal notification."

Pros: "Is goood"
Cons: "Very good"

Pros: "on time"

Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."

Pros: "Que acomoden a las parejas juntas."
Cons: "Asiento incomodo"

Pros: "I liked nothing about my flights."
Cons: "I hated that my first flight was delayed a whole day and I had to fly out of a different airport to get to eugene. To add coming home I tried to upgrade my flight to Ontario to an earlier time and they refused to do so and said it would cost $75. I felt the least the airline could do was let me fly home an hour earlier since they delayed my flight a whole day but that didn't happen."

Pros: "I liked how quick and easy the flight was; from boarding to exiting the plane in SFO."
Cons: "The size of the plane."

Pros: "Helpfully and we'll guided"

Pros: "Upon arrival at my gate departing to Durham with a 2 year old handful. I was excited to hear the attendant call for travelers with small children to board first. The thought of boarding at the same time as everyone else was giving me anxiety."
Cons: "Once I shuffled through tons disgruntled travelers because of my "child privilege" the attendant rolled her eyes and took a deep breath at the amount of time it took me to get to my ticket. Mind you, it makes sense I would have it somewhere convenient, but like I said single traveller, 2 year old handful. She scanned my ticket and flogged her hair in the air telling me take my stuff to the front of the plane. While the other attendant tagged all my items."

Cons: "Very Rude while talking to me at the airport. Was not happy to assist me and other passengers even though it was the air-line mistake for cancelling the flight and delaying the flight. Will never fly with this airline ever again."

Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."

Pros: "What did I like like that the pilot let us know what was going on on every moment and the stewardess was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable last flight 30 minute flight took an hour if not more and not knowing what gate my next flight is until I get there"

Pros: "This was a short flight. The only issue was the boarding. Took a while for me to get to my seat."

Cons: "The plane landed to San Francisco earlier than scheduled, but we could not get off the plane due to the gate not available. We were stuck on plane for about half an hour and I really worried about making my connection. I hope such arrangements are conducted more smoothly."

Pros: "nothing totally a rip off"
Cons: "I paid 125 for my hockey bag. Flight was delayed but no email or anything. Changing my flight was miserable staff so rude and people on phones can barely speak"

Cons: "TSA took forever, other than that. My flight boards at 0540 and I got there exactly at 0545. The plane already made its way to the runway and wouldn't wait an extra 10 mins for passengers to enter."

Pros: "Three hours late. No in flight snack since the weather was too bad for the flight attendant to bring a cart down the aisles. Pretty old plane, so kind of uncomfortable. But the staff was really nice and friendly for it being the holiday season, so they get all two stars."

Pros: "2.5 HR layover lost bag"

Pros: "I realy enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Wifi is wrong"

Pros: "Fast service!"

Pros: "Timely...and pilots updates of flight time"
Cons: "3 stewardess slow service"

Pros: "Great staff."
Cons: "A crying baby that say behind me."

Pros: "Flight Attendants were nice."
Cons: "The flight was expensive and they wouldn't let us or anyone place carry ons in the over head bin. It was an expensive ticket and didn't include checked bags ($25 more). Carry-ons wound up being "stowed". It would have been nice to know before I bought the tickets that I needed a smaller carry on."

Cons: "It was delayed 3hrs!"

Cons: "I paid good money to be back by 6am however I was delayed and had flights cancelled which made me get home 10 hours later than I should have. This was an overnight flight, so all the places to buy food were closed- United didn't offer snacks or blankets or really anything for the troubles. There were kids also stranded."

Cons: "The cramped conditions. By the way, please add a "N/A" or "not relevant" or "not interested" option to your rating selections. Or allow categories to be left not rated. There was no entertainment on my flight and even if there was I probably wouldn't use it. I don't want to leave a rating at all for that but there's no way not to."

Pros: "Everything was smooth"

Pros: "It was on time And very convenient"

Pros: "everything!"

Pros: "We were not given seats together..."
Cons: "Busy and not well managed and we bought seats well in advance"

Pros: "Flight was not longer."
Cons: "No free entertainment. Didn't give out headphones until an hour into the flight. Tight seating. No meal service."

Pros: "Got here"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
