Pros: "Upgrade"
Pros: "nothing"

Cons: "Make sure to repeat announcements in English if possible for non-Spanish speaking passengers"
Pros: "We never too this flight as Avianca cancelled our original flight. Your partner in Airfare.com was absolutely zero help in helping us resolve the issue. They told me I had to contact Avianca directly to resolve the matter. The only flights they had available were on different days."
Cons: "I am still trying to get a refund from the airline for a flight that they knew I was never going to take. I will never use any sort of third-party service for booking anything again. What is the point using it if it will be zero help when I did not cause the changes that occurred??"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but I bring pillows, crew was nice"
Cons: "Was very warm"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and showed great care, attended every need."
Cons: "Comfort."
Pros: "Buisenss class cabin service"
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "THAT i ACTUALLY MADE IT HOME"
Cons: "AVIANCA DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SEATS TO ACCOMODATE ALL THE TICKETS THEY SOLD. MY ENTERTAINMENT SCREEN WAS BROKEN, MY RECLINING SEAT WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY & MY TRAY TABLE WAS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE AFTER BEING OPENED, SEATS WERE EXTREMELY CRAMPED AND TIGHT. THE MEAT IN MY MEAL WAS HARD"
Pros: "The entertainment."
Cons: "Absolutley everything else. 4 hour delay and lost my bag."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat, food and the delay"
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Aviões muito velhos e comida muito fraca."
Cons: "For some reason I wasn’t able to select our seats using the Avianca app. I had to call the day before and we unfortunately were given 2 middle seats. I don’t mind one middle and an aisle. Felt like we weren’t given options."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, snack was good."
Cons: "The crew was absolutely horrible, both on ground and on board, they had no clue was customer service is, very unexpected from a big company like this..."
Pros: "Kidness"
Cons: "The airplane was very hot more than usuall. We call you he crew and they doesn’t care. A four food was cold and over cooked"
Cons: "My screen didn't work. I told the crew, they said something about to reboot it, but nothing happened."
Pros: "Nothing. I wish I could give negative stars."
Cons: "Everything was bad. Super delayed, terrible explanation. Had to stay overnight in the airport in the worst lounge I’ve ever seen in my life. Got a hotel voucher but by the time I would have gotten through immigration and got to a hotel I would have had 1 hour to “sleep” before having to get back to the airport for the 4 am flight which was then delayed again to 5am. After all this, we only got a $250 voucher on a $1500 flight. When I asked about business class upgrades they said they had seats open but it would cost $400! For a seat that stayed empty Instead of giving it to a customer who had been through the worst travel experience of their life. The flight attendants seemed like they really couldn’t give a damn about helping out customers and it’s the only airline I’ve ever interacted with where no one speaks English. One guy actually rolled his eyes when I asked him for the meal I missed when I was sleeping."
Pros: "Everything perfect. The attention was puntual y nice"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "That I now know avianca is not reliable"

Pros: "The plane is modern and staff were great!"
Pros: "Food/fast service"
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew very helpful!"
Cons: "I didn't like the "sandwich" which consisted of a bread with a small piece of ham inside (no cheese!) Very poor and tasteless."
Cons: "the flight changed schedule and I had to wait 8 hours in the connection instead of 3."
Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "The delay and boarding"
Pros: "The plane ride was smooth, the snacks given were decent"
Cons: "The person who checked us in at the airport for this flight in Bogotá was rude and unprofessional. Seemed like she didn't enjoy her job at all."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "While the plane was hardly full the seats were awful and overnight painful. I was served a sandwich which was moldy."
Pros: "No hassle and they gave a mini sandwich"
Pros: "Everything, really good company"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Timing"
Cons: "I know the space for legs is not great, but in a flight this long, with a kid, and none of the TVs working... Not cool."
Cons: "The original flight was booked to dec 11th 2016 at 10:20am. On dex 9th at about 10pm i got a text message and email telling that my flight was rescheduled and asking me to call Avianca. So i did, and my new flight was booked to leave 2:18pm, arriving in Salvador at night. I asked for options, they offered me a flight at 6am and another at 8:30 am. I said that i would talk to my party and return the call, and we choose the 8:30 flight. When i called back, they said this flight had only 3 seats (we were a party of 6 adt, 1 chd and 2 inf). In the avianca site they were offering the flight for the whole party, but, of course, with a higher rate that i paid in june. The person said she coulndt book it for me, and i should call the SAC (client service) to try to solve the problem. I called the SAC and after 40min in the phone they were able to put everybody on the desired flight. I felt that they were trying to rebook us on a cheaper flight, letting the seats with highest fares to be sold to someone else. Since it was their fault the flight changing, i think it was a bad experience in my first flight with Avianca. Probably will avoid them in the future."
Pros: "My seat."
Cons: "Our flight was an hour late taking off and no explanation was given as many of the passengers kept asking what was the problem. The flight attendants need to work on their attitudes and responsibilities. The flight was predominantly Brazilian passengers but the Avianca crew showed displeasure when asked questions in Portuguese by many different customers such as a beverage (one attendant told an older gentleman near me that a tray of drinks was available at the back of the plane and to go an get some if he like. Rude!!) It was just a very disagreeable experience flying on Avianca"
Pros: "Glad to get a good meal. And free entertainment."
Cons: "Seat was a little hard after 4hrs."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system."
Pros: "The crew was more attentive"
Cons: "Everything was fine except the lack of` air conditioning at boarding time"
Pros: "The Crew is well trained."
Cons: "They damage my luggage."
Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Pros: "Avianca is always nice people. very Respectful"
Cons: "it was very dissapointing that the airline changed the aircraft in two of my flights. first it was a B787 from Bogota to Sao Paulo, it was changed for a A330....and after they changed the A330 which was my flight to Lima from Sao Paulo for a A320 and it was very unconfortable for a long haul flight."
Pros: "I was able to stay in an aisle seat. The flighd didn't have much turbulence. The landing was very smooth."
Cons: "Flight atendants weren't much friendly. Boarding process took a lot of time to complete and during this time it was warm inside the airplane."
Pros: "Plame"
Cons: "Food, boarding process"
Cons: "There was no one in first class and they wouldn't let older people or pregnant women go there for more comfort. I think that is really greedy."
Pros: "Leg room."
Cons: "The flight attendant didn't give me any solution to the problem I has with my seat"
Cons: "Given we left at 7:15 am, I would’ve liked some food options instead of biscuits and peanuts"
Pros: "I had heard about limited food options during covid flights but everything was tasty and generous. I always appreciate it when my initial flight books my check-in to my final stop and gives me all my boarding passes at once and Delta did just that. They were also really good at communicating updates like changes to the gate."
Cons: "People should just be prepared to be asked more questions than usual. It can definitely make you feel nervous but just remember that the new covid restrictions are stressful for flight staff just as much as they are stressful for you. Be cooperative and honest and you shouldn't have any problems."
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"
Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."
Cons: "The trip was great"
Pros: "The crew very professional. My flight was on time."
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful with connections."
Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew helped find a place for my violin. Even though I was early to the gate, they also helped me update my seat before the new flight crew arrived."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, seats really comfortable!"
Cons: "Headphones sold for $ 2. Headphones preferably free"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were traveling international in Twitter after contacting we were told we can carry one checked baggage but then we were not allowed and at gate they didn’t know the procedure and repeatedly checked our passport Poor customer service"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "Gates switched 3 times and all bags had to be checked because of a small aging plane."
Pros: "Short lines"
Cons: "Seating arrangements"
Pros: "Comfortable plane due to few passengers"
Cons: "7 hour delay after flight postponed."
Cons: "I would ask that the gate does not share in detail reason for delay in seat assignment is related to getting a family sitting together when the basic rules should apply unilaterally."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any issues"
Cons: "Seats/seating area are too small, and I'm not a big person."
Pros: "No"
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the crew was pleasant and looked like they enjoyed working in the air."
Cons: "Our second time on a 787 Dreamliner across the Atlantic as about the same as the the first. The seat pitch is very tight so when a passenger reclines into the next row the seatback nearly touches your face. The Dreamliner seats seem to be very hard and it's difficult to get comfortable."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."
Pros: "Helpful"
Cons: "More print media to read on"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear/understand the pilot"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "The boarding was fast and very well handled."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages. The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They take them forever to find me another fly ,make miss my other fly, my work my time and my sleep"

Pros: "It was a normal flight as well expected."
Pros: "We had a 2 1/2 delay due to mechanical issues but the crews, flight and ground, did a great job. Thanks."

Cons: "Seats don't recline far enough."
Pros: "I was given a complimentary upgrade."
Pros: "The crew and pilot were absolutely amazing."
Cons: "This is my 3rd delta flight in a row that has been delayed. I understand these things happen, just extremely frustrating."
Pros: "I needed to run real fast to the connection flight and gladly got there on time."
Pros: "The service was amazing , the staff was honestly friendly and nice"
Pros: "Great service, nice agent friendly"
Pros: "Very friendly and professional gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "I was unable to fly at all due to a spelling error on my ticket. The airline refused to alter the ticket. Worst experience of my life, ruined my Christmas"
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Cons: "Layover"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Pros: "The movie I watched was pleasant, although I had trouble hearing it because of the situation described below."
Cons: "There was a family seated behind us with several crying, loud children. We were miserable. Even my headphones with a Mozart sonata cranked up to loud did little to mask the noise. Probably not Dela'a fault, but the crew did nothing to mitigate the problem."
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable but other than that it was wonderful!"
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Good"
Pros: "Service and comfort"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Never flew Copa Airlines before. I would definitely fly with them again. Flight from ORD to PTY was top notch. Crew and aircraft were excellent. PTY to UIO was an older aircraft that didn’t have all the amenities that the newer plane had, but the crew was still excellent."
Cons: "We were scheduled for a 7 hour layover at PTY. When we arrived we found out the plane we had just gotten off of was continuing to UIO. That flight never showed when I was booking the trip. It would have been nice to receive some kind of notification that a better flight option had become available."
Cons: "Que respeten los horarios de vuelos."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful. No complaints or issues."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like was the Panama City airport. Nothing wrong with the airliner."
Pros: "Great crew; efficient, kind and accessible."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Tiny screens and no options."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "The gluten free food, I was food poisoned with it! It was horrible! Use better airplanes, the movie was ok but the system is old."
Pros: "Good food (especially the Fruit platter we get when departing from Panama and the Guayaba juice that's available in all flights), very short layover, short flying time, allowed 2 checked bags plus a carry-on and a personal item."
Cons: "Web-checking still a little buggy (I'm not allowed to web checking when going to the USA, when departing from the USA and my destination address is in a different country I'm still forced to choose a US State to continue). Also Panama Tucumen Airport is awful, crowded, expensive and usually dirty."
Pros: "It was a nice and short flight. The food given to us was quite good, even though it was shorter than 2 hours."
Pros: "so I can't really speak on experiences of flying but this was as great and easy experience. The staff was very accommodating and understanding. I am more than willing to fly with them again!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "There is nothing to like because this flight never happened."
Cons: "Instead of going Chicago -> Panama City I was routed to Chicago --> Newark --> Bogota --> Cartagena. This means instead of arriving 8pm, I would now be arriving 8am the following day (I actually arrived after 1pm, so all in, it was about 30 hours of travel experience). At the request of the United agent in Minneapolis, I got in Customer Service line in Chicago to have my bags properly transferred to my connecting flights. After an hour in line, the agent proved to me by showing me the screen she was working on, that my bags would be routed directly to my final destination. She was confused why I was told to even come in line, so, great, another hour wasted."
Pros: "Crew on copa was wonderful!"
Cons: "So hot in the plane as we sat on the plane waiting to go I was actually getting sick!"
Cons: "Did not receive any service"
Pros: "The flight was only an hour and a half yet we weee given a hot meal, a snack, and complimentary (alcoholic) beverages. Boarding was organized and timely, the crew was friendly. Couldn’t have asked for more. Smoothest flight experience I’ve had in a while."
Pros: "Nice wide seat."

Pros: "First time on this airline. Friendly crew and good entertainment for a long flight."

Cons: "Ah, the usual airline stuff that we just have to live with."

Pros: "Friendly service, food and drink included, and free luggage. Seats had limited leg room, but otherwise comfortable. Would select this airline again!"
Pros: "Seats didn't recline, entertainment was poor."
Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."
Pros: "The food and service"
Cons: "Maybe more entertainment for a 5 hour flight"
Pros: "The crew and staff were wonderful and professional"
Pros: "Nothing. Even when it's the cheapest flight, th insignificant price difference vs. other airlines doesn't compensate the awful experience"
Cons: "The treatment of the crew was unrespectul. The food is extremely bad. The airplane and seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Duration of flight."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The food and flight crew were good. Both of my flights they served breakfast, just for reference."
Cons: "Checkin was poorly operated and the return flight had no inflight entertainment. I have never been on an international flight with no entertainment. There are certain expectations for flights that cost that much."
Pros: "Great crew, always on time,"
Cons: "Older plane with limited first class features (no foot rest and limited reclining), old entertainment system (no personalized entertainment screen per seat)."
Pros: "Service."
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "El espacio entre asientos es muy reducido. Las rodillas pegan contra el asiento de en frente. Muy incómodo y genera impacto en la espalda."
Pros: "el vuelo de lima a quito fue terrible. Me gustó la puntualidad"
Cons: "Todo, la comodidad del asiento, la cordialidad de los asistentes de tripulación, no hubo comida, no puedes escoger tu asiento y no es una aerolínea low cost, no hay entretenimiento en los aviones"
Pros: "Easy access to entertainment via my phone"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. I was given the wrong seat number and they helped sort it out. They also did priority boarding for us when the queue was ridiculous"
Cons: "The check in process was a mess with people going from all queues and it took far too long. They also have me the wrong seat number for boarding causing lots of confusion"
Cons: "´"
Pros: "Efficient processes"
Cons: "More diverse snacks"
Pros: "We were able to get to our destination safely without incident. Plenty of space for overhead baggage."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing, no announcements in English, so we didn’t understand what was happening. Land crew was great, but the flight crew passed over us for drinks, never came to pickup any trash. Seats were terrible, very uncomfortable for a 3.5 hour flight. Flight delayed 30 min. too."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "You can not overbook!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Flight attendants rude and lack of cleaning in the toilets."
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Pros: "The flight crew were okay. They only offer water for free, if you want food, you need to look at the pricing in the catalog. a cup of coffee for example would cost you 3000 pesos which is free if you take Copa or Avianca airlines. The seats were not comfortable either, just the same as others."
Cons: "At least offer something to eat and drink on flight."
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "the flight attendant were very kind"
Cons: "They should get more modern airplanes with personal TV."
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."

Cons: "The boarding was too crowd"
Cons: "Delay meant I missed a meeting deadline."
Pros: "The food improved a lot"
Cons: "They used to have great airplanes when it was LAN now the airplane was very old uncortable and the touchscreen barely worked. I used to like a lot LAN but now their quality is very bad. Also I traveled with my 3 year old son and they gave us separated seats. And I asked if we can have better seats for the next fly and they refuse because they supposed to be full but I notice close to me was a empty row and someone noticed that and move to it. They could made the things a little more easy with a mom with a toddler. They used to be more considered"
Pros: "The flight was great! The attention getting the boarding pass in Chicago was wonderful! I believe that isabela was the name of the person that helped me with my bags and she was extraordinary"
Cons: "When I was boarding the plain... the people in charge was very rude. I had to give them my carry on bag because there was not space and the way in which they asked for it was very unpolite."
Pros: "Comfortable and sufficient entertainment."
Cons: "The food wasn’t spectacular."
Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."
Cons: "They lost my bags"

Cons: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lost my flight after connection with Turkish arrived late and lost my luggage, Latam has no office in Chicago so i had to call, didn't assist me on the phone with changing my flight, sent me to speak with American airlines that was operating the flight, asked for a supervisor on the phone but they declined. Second day at airport i found out they booked me on a three leg flight home at 8 AM althought i was on the phone with them at 1:30 AM and I was never informed about the flight they offered at 8 AM. I ended up paying again for a flight with United the same day."
Pros: "I love this airline! Service, planes, food."
Cons: "Na"

Cons: "I flew home on the LATAM600 Lima to LAX. My flight was suppose to leave noon on May 25. Unfortunately we were delayed until noon the following day, May 26. I understand these matters are out of attendant's control, but the changes were not communicated in English and everyone was extremely slow to get us situated. Our flight was officially canceled at 5:30 pm, and it took five more hours for the attendants to get us to a hotel. In the morning, the transportation was not communicated well that I missed the bus. During all this, they never tried to re-book anyone either. I would pass on flying LATAM in the future."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised to find more legroom, more storage and a great selection of entertainment.."
Pros: "Cumplimiento fe horarios"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "The onboard crew was great."
Cons: "Computers offline in La Paz resulted in absurdly long wait to check in. In Santiago waited a ridiculous amount of time for buses to take passengers to the terminal."
Pros: "New plane .confort. Reliable company.good prices."
Cons: "Need to check size and weight of the carry on luggage at the register counter in the airport and not before boarding. Create confusion, lost of time. Boarding process is messy. Indications given to board by group number but it is not enforced and it is a real mess .food does not compare well with other companies.lunch is acceptable but snack(sandwich)and light supper are really awfull.entertainment system not a big choice of moovies"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Got to see the Lima airport"
Cons: "Even though it was the same exact plane at the same exact flight. All passengers had to get out, go through a security check point, then wait in line to board again. And at boarding all carry-ons were searched by hand, proving that the security check point is useless."
Pros: "Bad services, bad food, No enterteiment services available."
Pros: "Service was prompt, smooth boarding and the aircraft was modern. there was an entertainment option if you had downloaded their app before the flight - I hadn't downloaded it, so can't comment on the entertainment. Other than that - all in all great service."
Cons: "Snacks were crackers and 2 sweet biscuits. Would have been nice to have had something a little more savoury, but this is realistically already more than I would expect from European carriers, so can't complain."
Cons: "no breakfast"
Cons: "It was cancelled with little explanation from the airlines or airport. And with little help afterwards."
Pros: "The crew on this particular flight was friendly and attentive. The food was very good."
Cons: "The plane was not clean at all. Mine and my friend's seatbelts both had chewed gum stuck on them which we had to cover with some plastic wrap to keep it from getting on our clothing. Our tray tables were disgusting. It looked like someone had spilled food all over them and no one ever cleaned it, so we had to clean the tables ourselves."
Cons: "El problema es que nunca pude cambiar mi vuelo y con ustedes fue imposible comunicarse para que me auxiliaran. Muy mal por ustedes no por la línea."

Cons: "Nothing comes to mind right now."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional, but it got me there smoothly and in one piece."
Cons: "I found the seats to be particularly uncomfortable but otherwise nothing was wrong."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "Honestly, almost everything was good. At the meal time, the flight attendants spilled a lot tomato sauce on my white sweater. Of course it was very uncomfortable, they apologized and try to clean the mess and my sweater, but obviously they couldn’t make it. It was very embarrassing for me. I had to take off my sweater and wear only my winter coat. I suggest they should be more careful."
Pros: "El check in estuvo bien . Rápido y atento"

Pros: "The services and the comfort"
Cons: "Everything its good"
Cons: "I got there on time to board, but my mobile boarding pass will not scan. At which point I was asked to go back to the check in counter to have another one printed.

Pros: "Flight was faster than the schedule posted."
Cons: "I asked the lady at the counter if she could leave my ticket back open, since I was not sure about the date.... she openly suggested that buying a new ticket would be cheaper because there are many fees that will end up being more than the original ticket. I have asked before to leave my tickets open and then I know I have to pay 100usd plus diff in the rate.... I dont know why she didnt help."

Pros: "We got an upgrade to 1st class. However because it’s an older plane, 1st class was just recliner seats. This was an overnight flight, so anything helped. It would have been nicer to have seats lay further back in 1st class. We did not have food since we slept the whole way."
