Cons: "Keep the business and star alliance gold boarding lanes open and exclusive for the respective customers for use at any time whenever they show up at the gate. Otherwise it is a chaos to board along with economy. Also, everything was broken in my business seat"
Pros: "Monica the crew leader was excellent, always with a smile"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and more variety when it comes to entertainment. And better head phones!!!"
Pros: "The flight crew was helpful."
Cons: "Accommodation could have been better for those who had connecting flights. It messed up completely our working schedule. Very disappointing...."
Pros: "The food wasn’t bad, but Avianca used to give out more refreshments multiple times during the flight . Now they just give out water."

Cons: "The fact that I lost my flight because website vayama changed my flight itinerary and didn't airlines know"
Cons: "Plane was switched. Seats given away. Were placed on other flights arriving to our destination 7 hours after we were suppose to. Horrible experience. We didn’t travel through city we were suppose to. Worse flying experience in years. Our seats had been confirmed upon booking which apparently means nothing."
Cons: "There was no communication by Avianca staff & crew regarding the flight delay. I had a 10:49pm flight from BOG to JFK. Apparently the flight was delayed until 2:00am. I did not get an email or text alert relating to the delay. When I checked in at 9:00pm, the counter agent did not alert me to the change in departure time. It wasn't until I looked at the Departure board in the Avianca lounge did I know of the 3+ hr. delay. When we finally boarded, at least the captain was kind enough to explain the reason for the delay - Avianca needed to change aircrafts, then the originally slated captain called in sick and his replacement had to wait out the required time off as he had just completed a long haul flight from Canada to Colombia. Great job running a company Avianca..."
Pros: "Leg space is great in avianca, the food is very good and awesome customer service. Hope this company never change their way to service Customers. Thank you Avianca"
Cons: "Called the flight attendant several times and never came. Several people got a sandwich at the end of the flight but not everyone"

Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely."
Cons: "The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether."
Pros: "Nothing special airline"
Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Cons: "The food is just okay but at least they don’t make you pay for it"
Pros: "The price was much cheaper than other airlines so it was worth the hassle."
Cons: "Check-in at Lima was awful. The line was extremely long snaking back probably a few hundred feet. Stood in line for well over an hour. This resulted in a very rushed boarding process. Our breakfast tasted awful. I had called customer service ahead of time to check on luggage policies and everything they told me differed from what I actually experienced. The flight attendants were helpful though. Bags were handled fine."
Pros: "I enjoy Avianca unless I am flying out of bogota... friendly staff and economical."
Cons: "At many airports such as bogota there is always a REDICULOUS wait! Even if you pre checked in, you must wait 2 hours in a crazy line just to drop your luggage. 2 hours!! I have flown through bogota 10 times and the line is always over an hour long. This is insanity! I have visited 30 countries and never have experienced a mess like this. I hate flying Avianca out of bogota and will pick other airlines because of the crazy lines. I will fly into Latin America using Avianca but I will always use a separate airline to leave because of the mess."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."
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: "We loved everything about the airline we have been traveling with Avianca for several years now and we love it , definitely no other airline has the quality of service and professionalism as Avianca does."

Pros: "Smooth flight with ample attention."
Cons: "Boarding time was delayed without reason."
Pros: "The flight over to Bogota from NYC was perfect. No complaints. I was raving about it."
Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."

Pros: "the price"
Cons: "The attendants were in a bad mood and/or unhappy with their jobs. Short answers - not very friendly, but this isn't uncommon on Copa flights. I give them a "zero" on personality."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."

Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."

Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."

The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."

Cons: "They tried to charge more Money all the time. During the web check in, they give you the row where the sits are not able to decline. When you try to chance it, they pretend to charge extra fee"

Cons: "Not to overbook the flight"

Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"

The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"

The pass was hand written and missing information but she assured me it would be fine. When I attempted to go through security they informed me this wasn't a boarding pass and was missing information. They said I would have to go back downstairs to the desk again. have a visible disability that affects the way I walk, and typically I do not require a wheelchair. I give myself enough time to get to my destination, but thanks to Brunella I was running incredibly late. I finally arrived though my flight was then rerouted to Orlando due to weather conditions at Miami and never arrived in Miami. The pilot of this flight LA2514 decided he was done and wouldn't fly there at all. The passengers were informed they would take buses to Miami."

Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido.

Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "Got to see the Lima airport"

Pros: "Loading the back of the plane first."

Cons: "My wife and I had a 3 hour, 15 minute delay because of a hydraulic issue. I understand that this needed to be repaired or checked out. However, it would have been helpful to have received periodic updates from the crew about what was happening. We went for over an hour without knowing what was going to happen while we sat on the plane."
Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "After a 2 hour check in line in the airport lobby, we ran to the gate, only for there to be absolutely no info available. Flight was then cancelled, 2 hours later. Re booking was an absolute nightmare. I will never fly LAN airlines again."

Cons: "on the way home from Santiago to Toronto, Air Canada made an error and did not check my bags al the way through to my final destination and made me go back through security and customs and re check my bags.. making it so I missed my connecting flight home and lost my job! I had to work that day and the mishap completely threw mms schedule off and costed me my job."
Cons: "Very sub par service and you have to pay extra to reserve a seat."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Terrible food and entertainment on the flight to and from Santiago. Felt squizzed like a sardine in the can in the middle row. I will never choose Boening 777 for overnight flights. Transfer in Toronto was confusing. Delayed arrival caused problems in retrieving luggage and made a stressful experience getting to Chicago flight on time - not mentioning sluggish US border check in Toronto. For my next trip, I would rather pick another airline and transfer airport."
Pros: "Great cabin crew."
Cons: "Huge delay without explanation."
Cons: "crew was rude and unhelpful with delayed flight"
Cons: "delayed by 5 hours"
Pros: "Boarding, service, entertainment we're all good."

Pros: "The entertainment options were good and the fight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays and lack of information in the boarding process are unacceptable - this occurred on my trip from Montreal to Paris as we as the return trip. Passengers feel like cattle being herded."
Cons: "Previous flight got delayed and Air Canada did everything possible to prevent me from taking my first available connecting flight. They always prefer that we wait!"
Pros: "I do not intend to use Kayak again because it is extremely difficult if not impossible to make sets reservations even though I am in Executive class."
Cons: "This flight was two and a half hours late. We lost an hour and 45 minutes due to a mechanical problem with our airplane, then lost another 45 minutes due to a storm in Toronto. Air Canada blamed the weather for our late arrival, my missed connection and claimed no responsabilility for the fact that my trip ended up taking more than 24 hours when it was supposed to take about 9 hours. Also, there was the matter of the lost luggage which was a carry on that I accepted to have checked as the Air Canada staff seemed desperate to check our carry ons on a full flight to Toronto from Montreal. I ended up spending the night in the Vancouver airport without access to my luggage."
Pros: "Entertainment options were excellent, and the screen worked really well."
Cons: "The crew was somewhat sloppy in their service of meals and drinks."
Cons: "Boarding gate very small"
Cons: "Long line and few staff at immigration. Need twice number of clerks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and professional. Comfortable flight, given it was 10+ hours long."
Cons: "I have never flown an airline that served dinners without offering a vegetarian (typically pasta) option as a standard meal. Had no idea that I would need to request this, so I did not have dinner on the flight, as the meals were either chicken or beef. At this point in the 21st century, a meatless diet is a widespread life choice, for either ethical or health reasons. I would really like to see a pasta option as a default. Thanks for taking feedback."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Meals came out at great times. Food was good but not great."
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit slow and started late, making our flight delayed, which made us miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "The food was not really good."
Cons: "Boarding by zones is an excellent idea; but it does not work very well. Peole still making lines and standing in front of the gate when their zones have not been called out. Making boarding very difficult and confusing."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "I did not get airline miles credit on my United account as requested. I would like to be contacted about this."
Pros: "The crew tried hard to give me more salad and bread since they didn't have a vegan option and meat was mix with the hot meal."
Cons: "In order to have a vegan or any special meal they ask you to call 48hs before. I've done online but the site I used for booking didn't pass the options requested. Then at checking counter they can't add it not even the return flight. This option should be able to be added anytime! Then why they can't put the meat aside for the hot plate so at least we could eat the rest. Also when preparing vegan or vegetarian meals you can just give cookies and cakes or white pasta! Any meal should be balanced, as for vegen meals it also have to have some vegetal complete protein combination."
Pros: "It was about as good as you can hope for in cattle class. Middle seat in the bulkhead row is not worth paying extra for."
Cons: "Power outlet at my seat did not work."
Pros: "the staff was wonderful"
Cons: "no entertainment on flight 10 hours bored to death"

Pros: "Nothing positive. Horrible experience."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "Seating for Econamy patron flyers has become disgustingly so close together that knees of person behind me kept jabbing me in my back. When person in front tilted his seat back I really felt cramped and felt like a sardine. I am not a tall person. I do have short legs. Maybe airlines should hereafter ban tilting the seats back."
Pros: "Despite departing late we made it relatively on time"
Cons: "My screen didn't work. The outlet in the seat was also broken. The connection to the Internet was weak and there was a lot of turbulence."
Pros: "entertainment system was very good. Crew were fine. The flight itself was fine as well, no issues with weather, etc so it was just long."
Cons: "The boarding at Rome was chaotic. They give you a "zone" assignment but they never used it. People were just milling around trying to figure it out. Weird."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight ended."
Cons: "The "ping" concert. Since some designer genius (thanks, Boeing!) put all the controls in the armrest, exactly where any normal human being will rest his/her elbows, the controls keep activating every time you lay your elbow in the armrest. That means, your games will cancel and restart a thousand times, your volume will keep shifting from deafening to mute, and the button calling for help from the crew keeps going "ping" all over the plane. The crew ignored the calls, surely since they know what goes on with the plane, but I wonder what would happen if somebody really needed help. In addition to that, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, narrower than ever and hard as brick. Every time I board a new plane I wonder what can they do to make it even worse, and plane designers never cease to amaze me with new medieval tortures."
Pros: "The ground crew were always nice and friendly. They worked hard to deal with delayed flight, missed connection, and tight alternate connection. Flight crew were also friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Four-hour flight delay released in one hour increments without announcement -gate displayed "on time departure" for the duration of the delay. Our hassles were compensated with meager meal vouchers given too late, There was no pre-boarding on our flight (just one big cattle call) which made boarding with child and gear extra awkward,"
Pros: "Not much. Maybe the boarding is not bad and the flight is on time"
Cons: "The crew is rude and unprofessional. Really low efficient and the seats are uncomfortable. Too tide for a 14 hours flight"
Pros: "No hassle about size and dimensions of carry on luggage - yeah! On time departures and even early arrivals! Very polite and great customer service! Enjoyed the bi lingual (english/french) aspect of announcements! good movie/entertainment choices!"
Pros: "Long, but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Temperature in tha cabin was very low. Several passengers complained and the crew ignored the requests. The bread of the sandwich was so dry it was almost unedible. The front left bathroom in economy was in bad need of maitenance. It was clean but completely out of step with the age of the aircraft. Was worn and looked dirty"
Pros: "On time and nice crew"
Pros: "Crew are very friendly and boarding was a breeze."
Cons: "For the huge amount of money they charge us for national flight with no included meals or even snacks its ridiculous!!"
Pros: "If someone is requesting a wheelchair, shouldn't that be the first clue that they need a seat that isn't all the way at the back end of the plane? Try harder to make those accommodations possible!"
Cons: "See notes for suggestions. Besides that, there were far too many empty seats in "first class". What's the matter with you people? You couldn't see that I was struggling to walk and simply given me one of those out of courtesy? Do you think anyone would have known? NO THEY WOULDN'T HAVE! You don't even give a snack of a miniature bag of anything anymore? Again...nickel and dimming the customer and being a lemming! Following all that is greedy and wanting same as any other filthy carrier? Don't worry! I won't forget any of this! I was nice and respectful to everyone of the attendants. Yet limping and having problems breathing, they let me carry my own carry-on suitcase which was clearly too heavy for me! I had a pulmonary embolism and have very bad legs but that apparently didn't show well enough by the pained expression on my face! So thank you for nothing Air Canada. This is strike 2 against your airline. Three strikes and you're out! Because then, I contact the American Civil Disabilities office for their assistance in putting your business practices on television for heightened scrutiny by the FAA. No threat implied. Just statement of fact."
