Pros: "I did like the space between the seats, it felt roomier than other airlines. and the seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "I was never able to connect to the inflight movies on the flight even after downloading the app and following all the instructions. That was pretty frustrating."

Pros: "Onboard crew were ok but the gate staff were a bit sassy and rude."
Cons: "Customers service training for gate agents."
Pros: "I was allowed to do a "courtesy check" for my bag on both flights. This made it easier for me to get on the plane. The wait time to pick up my suitcase was minimal. Way to go!"
Pros: "Had the chance to watch interactions with boarding attendants and other passengers and flight crew. Was always very informative and friendly to passengers, flight crew and ground crew and always seemed informed on what was going on. Flight was great and stewardess' were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "When I booked the flight my wife and I had adjoining seats. When we checked in we were in the same row but in the middle seats on opposite sides of the isle. On my side there three guys together, the other guys were business men concentrating on their work. I was just trying not to bump into their arms, I couldn't relax."
Pros: "Getting to where I needed to go"
Cons: "Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!"
Cons: "We had a specific situation on our flight tonight that was especially disruptive. Shortly after take-off, my fiancé who was traveling with me, felt the teenager (most likely a minor) directly behind him pushing his seat. My fiancé turned around to ask her to stop. Rather than apologizing and stopping, the teenager immediately began complaining about how my fiancé was encroaching on her space. My fiancé replied that it was well within his rights to lean his seat back. The teenager responded with further complaints. Her comments were out of line and rude. It was clear that she was not satisfied with my fiancé having his seat leaning back. My fiancé eventually put his seat back, and the teenager stopped complaining. We believed that the situation had been resolved, but apparently the teenager was not satisfied. Instead, she went to a flight attendant and lodged a complaint against my fiancé. Rather than hear our side, the flight attendant immediately asked us to move to a different seat. We were forced to move, against our will, to two separate middle seats further forward in the plane. We no longer were able to sit next to each other for the remaining five hours of the flight. And this was all because one particular teenager did not want my fiancé to put his seat back, which he is certainly allowed to do. Overall, the situation was handled poorly. We paid to sit together on a flight, but due to one other passenger's attitude, we were forced to sit in seats that we did not choose apart from one another. The flight attendant should have at least heard our side of the story and offered us an alternative. Instead, we were forced to accommodate another passenger who was in the wrong. Not to mention, throughout this entire process - which lasted about 30 minutes - I was not able to use the GoGo Inflight Internet Package I had just paid for. That was money wasted. The experience was embarrassing, disruptive, and awkward. We love Alaska Airlines, and we are usually pleased with their customer service. However, tonight, the customer service we received did not meet our needs; instead the flight attendant exacerbated the situation and we left our flight feeling frazzled, angry and disappointed."

Cons: "the food was horrible. we ordered the pass and ham dish. The pasta was dry.barely have sauce and ham overcooked. The cookie from Sweet treats was stale. There was only a meat and rice dish and pasta and ham, no vegetarian options hence 2 meats dishes. The landing was very rough like the pilot just dropped the plane. We weren't offered cofee and just because we are in economy class we should be served in better dishes no plastic utensils. Feels like you don't care for your customers unless they fly business or first class. Tickets aren't cheap anywhere with you"
Cons: "Avianca reps are unlawfully closing the flight when flight is overbooked. Then they said it was passenger who was late. They charged change of flight costs and did not provide hotel. This is happening to many passengers."

Then I went back and the next guy said I couldn't have my seat even though it was 2minutes later and gave me a new seat but a better seat. Then the first guy comes over to give me a boarding pass for my second flight and again he changed my seat to an awful seat. And I wanted to sit next to a friend from Mexico City to Lima so that seat change was really mean. Once one the plane the man in my original seat got an upgrade so I got to sit next to my friend about half way through the flight when she came to tell me about the empty seat when she came to the back of the plane to use the bathroom."
Pros: "Food was good. Entertainment was excellent. Crew was attentive."
