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.

The crew people were nice

The recline on my seat was broken. Since there were empty seats I moved to another seat and the recline system was also broken. My son’s screen didn’t work so one of us couldn’t watch TV. Quality on Latam is poorer nowadays.

I chose the seats 8 months before this flight and I supposed to be assigned 8F and 8E. However, I don"t know why the airline assigned me the last seats in the airplane in this time. That day the aircraft experienced turbulence and I felt bad at the back. I did not like they decided to change my seats without asking me.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
