Airline reviews

Good budget airline. I was worried about the weight limit of my carryon bags as I know some airlines are very picky about it, but I just walked onto the plane with no issues. Boarding was smooth. I was pleasantly surprised that they served entire meals for everybody - they were okay, but there was variety (soggy sandwich, plantain chips, a cappuccino muffin, and a bottle of water). Unfortunately, the seats were very uncomfortable (none of them could recline or extend the headrest, and the seat was hard), which wasn’t so great for my red eye flight.

Cons: "Many delays, on my top 3, for worst airline travel."
Pros: "was very bad more than 6 hour to back to guatemala to salvador no eat nothing and waiting for trip I was requesting change the flight for another day and they said your flight is going late but no cancel i told they can't wait to much because i have sick conditions and need medicine on time and come my house at 2:00 am."
Cons: "Changed the trip when the customer requested and said the truth if you are put two flight in the same airplane and waiting more than 5 hours."
Cons: "Entertainment system need to be improved ASAP."

Pros: "Check in was very smooth. Flight crew was very attentive"
Cons: "Presentation of food was not great."
Pros: "Great crew, organized, smooth flight, the team was awesome with my kids on our red eye, which made for such a better trip."

Pros: "Good leg room and comfortable seats, good food"
Pros: "Was the seat super!"
Pros: "Ay the counter they were nice"
Cons: "Food was the worst and service from flight crew was Poor"
Cons: "Mi fly was canceled. They only rescheduled from Montevideo to Bogota, and forgot to do it for the second part. I had to call them and ask for a new option. Their best option was a 23 hour fly, or a 20 hour fly with 3 plane changes."
Pros: "Overall it was a great experience, the crew was friendly and polite, the seats were comfortable, a lot of choices for online entertainment."
Cons: "There was a little disorder in the forming of the boarding line, and the breakfast food, egg specifically had an awful taste."
Pros: "El servicio en general ha mejorado mucho Felicidades !"
Cons: "El precio"
Pros: "The food was good, staff in the plane was courteous."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4 hours. At the time when we were supposed to depart, nobody from the airline was at the counter outside the designated gate. I asked couple of people from Avianca and they told me the flight was departing at the original time, which was not correct. The flight first was pushed to 1 am departure (3 hours delay) and then to 4 am departure (4 hours delay). After several people asked about the flight and an hour after the original departure time, the airline finally had staff at the counter indicating the new departure time and apologizing for the inconvenience. The airline offered a meal at the airport, but I didn't find this through their representatives, but through another passenger. The gate changed about 5 times, which I understand is not under the airline control, but part of this probably could have been prevented with better coordination. My first day in La Paz was horrible, as I couldn't even sleep waiting for my flight to depart. Thank you Avianca!"
Pros: "Crew is excelente and very friendly"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and I like that there are food options throughout as a part of our ticket."
Cons: "They lost my luggage and it was impossible to reach anyone who knew anything or to be compensated for my inconvenience and items."

Cons: "Kayaks reservation was not ticketed and I had to buy new ticket at airport ."
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: "We seats assigned and they didn’t let us board the plane. We had to spend a night in Bogota. Even though we where clear with the Avianca people we had early meetings in Medellin."
Pros: "Mas o atraso se deu por suposta falta de teto para a aterrissagem da aeronave. Se foi isso mesmo, não foi culpa da companhia."
Cons: "I am really upset because I never received my luggage and was told that I would have to get it delivered to my house. I didn't appreciate the fact that I wasn't told about my luggage not getting in the plane until I landed and went to claim my luggage."
Pros: "Excelente servicio. Los aviones muy comodos."
Cons: "El Check In complicado pues una vez entras una nacionalidad no se puede cambiar la informacion para las personas con dua nacionalidad. No da mas opciones y no lo deja continuar sino llena la opcion de residente que no es la situacion real."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Normal flight, except for - see below"
Cons: "Flights from Valledupar to Bogota are usually late. Our return flight last Friday was more than 45 min late. We were at the airport ontime, the airline announced the delay but didn't anounce when the plane landed and began boarding, only a few minutes before closing the flight. Airport staff was uncollaborstuve."

Pros: "The attention"
Cons: "It is too long and it was late"
Pros: "The modern aircraft"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Like the non-stop flight. It saves a lot of time."
Cons: "I realize it is necessary but being one of the random security checks before boarding sucked."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "My passport was not due to expire for the NEXT 4 months AFTER my come back day The lady from Avianca didn't let me board due to my passport expiring 4 months after my return day. I had to pay for a 24 hours expedite / rush passport. ALSO, once I got my new passport (17 hours later) I was told that I had to pay $170 penalty for moving my departure day and $680 because I had to adjust to the new ticket price. At that point I decide to buy a new ticket with a different airline. AVIANCA SUCKS!!! They are NOT very accommodating at all. Will not recommend this agency and I WILL NEVER ever again will use their service."

Pros: "Not only was the flight fast and comfortable, I sprained my ankle on the way to the airport and then airline staff was incredibly helpful getting me checked in, wheeled to and from the flight, taken care of on the plane etc. Could have absolutely ruined my day but because of the staff I made it otherwise seamlessly!"

Cons: "Departed 1 hour late. BOarding information was not updated in the departing airport (Lima) Foof was mediocre"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The food was terrible. Oily, tasteless Not comfortable seats."
Pros: "I love that I was upgraded due to my Lifemiles Elite status. Sometimes first class seats are left empty, when the airlines could use that opportunity to engage people in the mileage programs."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable probably because it was an old plane."
Pros: "Flight on time and nice attendants."
Cons: "That they would not allow me to choose a seat before 24 hours of departure because the "ticket was too cheap"."
Pros: "on time departures, great service at every touch point, clean aircraft, early arrivals, great experience."
Cons: "A delay of one hour."
Cons: "Dec 19th SFO - San Salvador- Lima (Peru) They cancelled the departure for 12 hrs, instead of :600 am we finally left from SFO at 6:25 pm. Everyone missed their connection flights. So they took us to a nice hotel. We finally left San Salvador the next day at 3 pm. So I spent two days flying to my final destination (Lima-Peru). Really disappointed about Avianca notification systems. The first email arrived at 3:30 am when everyone was already at the airport for nothing. Never again will flight with Avianca."
Cons: "No individual entertainment screens on the longer international flight."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "My tailbone aches from the seat. Other friends who flew Copa Airline had the same experience. Friends on other airlines had no complaints. I need a donut cushion on the seat."
Cons: "I paid for and reserved seats, but didn't get the seats I reserved"
Pros: "Two planes boarded late and the airline refused to let us bring our carry on luggage on board. Then they proceeded to lose one of our bags. We still don’t have it 24 hours later."
Cons: "Love the free alcohol but would have loved a TV to pass the time. Gracias!"
Pros: "I liked my first flight a lot"
Cons: "My connecting flight had a moved gate and I heard no announcement. Because of this, I ended up missing the flight and now I am stuck in Panama for 2 days! No flights until Monday (today is Saturday) Can’t leave the airport because I don’t have vaccines and will only have one day to my trip."
Cons: "Food was terrible Flight departure time in the middle of the night is terrible, and the 1-hour delay made it much worse. Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food was actually good for airline food and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I wish I had a map on the screen of where we were."
Pros: "Everything was just great best ever airline!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything was wonderful. Thanks for the great service."
Pros: "The airline itself was great with their service. I always use Kayak to book my flights."
Cons: "I was denied entry into Panama through immigration because of a past criminal record. I was detained for 9 hours with no food, water, or access to my belongings. I was unaware of what was happening, as I haven't had a criminal history for many years and wasn't informed upon purchasing this ticket that this would be a problem. I was sent back to San Francisco. This has interfered with other travel plans and tickets that have already been purchased once I reached my final destination of Bogota, Columbia. I need to reach Quito, Ecuador by March 21st and I'm now back in San Francisco extremely disappointed."
Cons: "They has 3 English entertainment selections for adults and 2 for kids 13+, nothing for actual kids."
Pros: "I preordered the kosher option, more out of curiosity, and the hope that it would be better than standard coach fare. It wasn't. It consisted of a pastry, a roll and some applesauce. A waste of packaging."
Cons: "My husband and I went to Panama specifically to go on a surf trip. Our surfboard bag containing three surfboards did not arrive at the Panama City airport until 3 days after we arrived. It entailed multiple phone calls and many trips to and from the airport before we got our surf boards. The COPA baggage people kept telling us they would call with updates as to when the board bag was going to arrive but they never did. We had to stay in an expensive hotel for three days in Panama City, which we didn't plan to stay in the city at all."
Cons: "Despite arriving at the airport in Panama 3 hours before our flight we were given no seats, and told it was likely we would be flying at 6 pm instead of 9 am (our flight to SFO). Eventually we got the seats at the gate without a word of explanation. And my husband and I were given separate seats. He got an exit row seat, though, with no other passengers seating next to him."

Cons: "Seats not comfortable, no blanket given for overnight flight."
Pros: "La Atencion a los pasajeros"

Cons: "Crew was not nice some times during the flight. Seating was really tight for a 7 hour flight."

Pros: "Almost everything was great!!"
Cons: "The flight was had some minutes delayed!!"
Pros: "Good flight."
Cons: "Lost all our checked luggage...on a direct flight."
Cons: "Flight was a couple hours delayed"
Pros: "Couldn't say, as nothing was appealing and believe you me, I'm quite easy to please; ask anyone who knows me."
Cons: "LOTS. Let's start off with the planes. They were the smallest planes I have ever flown on an international flight. Then the cabin crew is of NO help when it come to assisting in stowing your belongings, not even out of courtesy, although it's their duty. I kindly asked for a can of Sprite when they were distributing the beverages and the flight attendant snapped back while showing me an empty can, but, karma kicked in and she spilled half of my flat Sprite on the carpet; luckily, it didn't spill on me. She could have avoided the mess, embarrassment (both for her and the airline, as she demonstrated incompetency; after all, she represents the airline), and this bad review, if she had kindly complied with my request. There's more, but, I don't want this to be another chapter of 'War and Peace'."
Pros: "On time and great service. Awesome."
Cons: "Being on time and service on board"
Pros: "Everything. All went well, no hitches anywhere."
Pros: "The seat is better than the Latam Airlines, which is the worse airline I've ever been."
Cons: "The crew doesn't pay very much attention on passengers."
Cons: "It took way too long to board"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "No food No milk for infant Crew not friendly Seats are bad shape For international travel this is not good"
Pros: "The flight was on time as scheduled and the food was eatable."
Pros: "Customer Service, staff smiling and been helpful at all times,, Meal delicious, aircraft very spacious"
Pros: "Very nice people and customer service is great."
Cons: "Need some refreshing of planes interiors - that's why give more business."
Cons: "Food is terrible. 7 hours flight and a snack and a very poor breakfast. Small and disconfort seats"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the entertainment on the little TV was great."
Cons: "The next morning when we returned to the airport to get our boarding passes, it was mayhem at the ticket counter. People waited so long that they missed the next flight. People were so angry - they were crying and shouting. It seemed line no one could control the lines of people who were waiting. The bold ones (like me) moved into other lines that were moving faster and got service, while others in the general boarding line had to wait and wait. It was so sad. The food was really bad - the past and chicken were terrible."
Pros: "Great service, clean planes and very pleasant over all."
Cons: "The layover."
Pros: "The complimentary meals and drinks as well as good custumer service"
Cons: "One of my bags didn't arrive at my final destination."
Pros: "People qhere relatively nice"
Cons: "I had a fragile checkin package that was packed professionally and it came in peaces. It is not the first time this happens. I suggest a little more care with passenger items"
Cons: "They asked for me to prove I was a resident of Argentina to travel there ( that is NOT a requirement) My italian passport clearly states that I am a resident of Argentina, with an Italian passport. On my way to Mexico they required that I show proof that I had a flight leaving Mexico. I did, on another airline, and I couldn't access my email to prove it so they would not let me board the flight., Again there is NO requirement to prove my returning flight, I had to pay a change fee to board the flight the following day, I lost a day of my vacation, because of the airline requirements THAT NO OTHER AIRLINE requires."
