Cons: My wife lost the fly for delay in the first fly from Cúcuta to bogota
Cons: Two hour delay. What the hell is going on here? We’re still waiting on the runway !!!!
Cons: En un vuelo de seis horas, dan un desayuno perfectamente diminuto y no hay nada más de comer el resto del vuelo. Entendemos que estén buscando cortar costos pero ser una low cost a precio full es inconsistente. Por lo menos vendan snacks en el avión!!!
Pros: FLight was fine. No entertainment nor wifi.
Cons: They had screens for seats but not really much service available.
Pros: The crew was awful, food horrible
Cons: Crew and food
Cons: The flight was delayed 55 minutes and lost connection to Panama
Pros: The seats were spacious and comfortable.
Cons: My Avianca flights in both directions were some of the slowest boarding experiences I’ve ever had. Ten minutes after boarding time for this flight they changed the gate to across the terminal
Cons: Vegetarian Food
Pros: They changed the flight 2 hours later and then was deleyed for 30 minutes . I never received compensation for that
Pros: The kids movie selection was still good.
Cons: There were no barf bags on hand, the food was an option between some disgusting eggs floating in water or a yogurt with some not great granola. Customer service was kind of non existent.
Pros: The screens to watch movies are too small and not all of them were lowered to be able to watch at a closer distance.
Pros: Seats comfort
Cons: Food. Crew attention. Airport assistance. Boarding times. Take off on time.
Pros: everything was excellent
Cons: everything was excellent
Cons: Avianca customer service and reliability is terrible. I fly a lot and the lack of care for customers is incredible. Lot of dressing up employees but clearly the company is not doing well. Everyone at the airport with complaints for complex rebooking.
Pros: thank you for the patience you have with passengers and children, very grateful thousand thanks Avianca
Pros: La conexion con NY casi la pierdo.
Pros: No delay in takeoff
Cons: Check in was incredibly slow, food was substandard
Pros: The cabin service, and how well the pilots land also the flight was on time
Cons: I had to change the first part of my trip bach from Cucuta to Bogota, they cancelled the trip Bogota Mismi and I lost the monry I paid for assigned seats plus I had to pay $709.00 for the change. I would appreciate you checking on it. And many thanks
Pros: I received an upgrade to business, nice detail from AVIANCA
Cons: Flight delay nothing to sorry about, only 20 minutes
Cons: it was 14 horas late
Pros: Service and food
Cons: The wait for boarding
Pros: Service was perfect, flight on time, will use Avianca anytime.
Pros: Flight crew EXCEPCIONAL The lunch was delicious Service perfect
Cons: With over an hour in line to enter the International portion of the airport everyone was extremely stressed. Immigration personal were very snappy and rude (Not Avianca, Colombia). We had over an hour wait to get inside then it was a long run to get the the gate on time. The problems that Avianca is having with its flights, on time percentage and upset passengers is very Sad. Normally Avianca is the best airline in the American Zone! They need to fix their internal problems quickly or their bottom line will get punished.
Pros: I like the fact that you had so many options for entertainment.
Cons: The flight got in about 7:30 AM and it would have been great to have breakfast before landing.
Pros: Last minute cancellation without any reasonable information, no respect for passengers.
Pros: all ok
Pros: Nothing. everything was wrong. I had planned to stay one day in Bogotá and this did't happen
Cons: Avianca changed my flight without consulting, nobody could explain it.
Cons: The crew wasn’t welcoming, didn’t solve difficulties and had bad communication with passengers
Cons: - Rescheduled flights due to Avianca commercial decisions just 1 week before flight - Boarding was very messy due to their inhability to explain the "group system", they have pax that doesn't speak spanish or english, they should do it in a more easy way - Food portions wasn't enough, a lot of people had to bring their own snacks and the plane had a terrible smell due to that. People will bring bags with full roasted chickens - Entretainment was ok, but their system is just so slow - A lot of loss time because they lost my bags in one of the connections. Hopefully they brough it back 12 hours later
Pros: Everything perfect. The attention was puntual y nice
Pros: No been canceled
Cons: After avianca overbooked their flight, lied to me and said it was because of a strike i was stuck alone in bogota for 11 hours instead of 3.5. I received no compensation and am very angry with the way things were handled. Definitely wont be bothing with this airline again
Pros: Great flight
Pros: I loved it was a super experience!!
Cons: 6 hours delayed
Pros: Again, consistent
Pros: Good breakfast. Sodas, juices ,wine and spirits later. I would always travel in airlines that can offer at least wine.
Cons: Flight map screen was not working. Few music options on the screen.
Pros: The crew was smiley and sweet.
Pros: Cabin crew were great.
Cons: Aircraft was too small & old for such a long flight.
Cons: Sadly while doing my check in in Cali Colombia the guy doing it which work for Avianca stole my cellphone I left it on the counter for like 15 seconds turn around and he was gone supposedly he had shift change that's very upsetting since anybody could give info they didn't know anything
Pros: The Avianca airlines crew was great.
Cons: We had to deplane at the Guatemala airport and, because the airport doesn't allow continuing passengers to remain on the plane, we had to go through a repeat security check, including pat-downs and carry-on search. We had already done this security check in Costa Rica, so it was redundant
Pros: Friendly and helpful crew
Cons: Boarding and departure on both flights was very late, no food neither on the flight from Pasto to Bogota nor on the one from Bogota to Bucaramanga
Pros: Flights on time
Cons: There was nothing on tv
Pros: Everything was great.!
Cons: Didnt have any problems.
Cons: We upgraded to business class and my entertainment system did not work at all. After asking three different flight attendants for assistance they told me just to go to sleep. I did not get dinner or a movie. This was a huge disappointment since I just paid nearly $500 to upgrade.
Cons: My seat wasn’t clean. Dirt was visible. We used Clorox wipes to clean it before sitting down. If someone had previously sat there with an illness, we would certainly be at risk. Very disappointing to see during Covid-19 outbreak.
Cons: You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage
Pros: Mediocre flight and service
Cons: Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English.
Pros: New plane, nice crew, good entertainment, good food.
Cons: The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours and it was handled horribly. First, I had to wait at check-in for 1 hour despite having checked in online. Next, we were told hourly-wise to check-in at the gate to find out when our flight would leave. This was a hassle and caused me a lot of stress since I had to make new plans with a new itinerary for my arrival in Chile where I was supposed to meet my elderly parents. The staff kept telling me they didn't know when we'd leave asking me to check back four times before they were able to give me a definite time. Aweful experience that caused me a lot of stress and inconvenience.
Cons: They had no sandwiches for sale! No entertainment
Cons: Crazy early. Boarding pass says gate closes by 1205 (for scheduled 1220 departure). We TOOK OFF (in air) before 1200. We got yelled at because we arrived only 1 hour early — should be 3 hours early for an “international flight”. Luggage very difficult, Must rush, etc. But everything turned out great. Scl is crazy airport — 20 minute wait for gate ramp when we got there (still 20 minutes early, instead of 40! On a 60-minute scheduled flight!). Huge long walk to immigration. Pretty long wait for bags. But it all worked out fine.
Pros: Crew members were friendly and helpful
Cons: Boarding, comfort of seats
Pros: THE WAY THE PLANE IS LOADED WITH SEATS IN BACK LOADED FIRST AND FRONT SEATS LOADED LAST SO DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT THROUGH ALL THE PASSENGERS BLOCKING FRONT AREA
Cons: FOOD IS MOST TASTELESS OF ANY AIRLINE FOOD WE'VE EVER HAD ON THE MANY AIRLINES WE'VE BEEN ON AROUND THE WORLD
Pros: Great Airplane i felt awesome tha movies the food everything was great with this flight
Cons: nothing, maybe the Airport at Hanga Roa because we wait so much time!
Pros: Everything was ok
Cons: They always on time
Pros: Yes, they did
Pros: Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals
Pros: The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice.
Cons: It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere.
Cons: More room legs needed.
Pros: There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!
Cons: More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks).
Pros: We will actually travel tonight due to cancellations and route changes. Our seats were upgraded and we were put up in a nice hotel to rest before flight.
Cons: Better communication about route change and code sharing to fix it.
Pros: Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service
Cons: Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on
Cons: La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina.
Pros: The crew was nice enough
Cons: Departure time. Vessel was really old. Uncomfortable seats
Cons: Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade.
Pros: The flight was on time & smooth
Cons: Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about.
Pros: The crew really was amazing and very kind
Cons: The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure
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.
Pros: Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!
Cons: Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!
Pros: The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have.
Cons: The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them.
Cons: We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards.
Pros: Good service, nice plan, great entertainment on my own phone. Very comfortable, good food
Cons: I cannot get water before we take off and I am not allowed to bring water aboard. Does not make sense.
Pros: Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight
Pros: Good crew, excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable seats and on-time flight
Cons: Entertainment was lacking, so there was only an in-flight magazine to read with limited English language material
Pros: We got on the plane after flight from LAX was delayed by 8 hours
Cons: Being initially delayed and not knowing til we got to Lima if we were going to get to Montevideo that day.
Pros: LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food
Cons: Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big.
Pros: LA844 was cancelled the day before but luckily our day went off without a hitch. LA842 was delayed several hours to create LA1144, which was effectively the cancelled flight from the day before. Airport wasn't as chaotic as I might have expected. No issues at all with this flight.
Cons: I'm still weary of LATAM after they left us in Lima for 15 hours after 2 cancelled flights. No issues this flight though (at least for us... poor sobs on the cancelled flight the day before were delayed about 15 hours themselves).
Cons: Child behind my seat was loud kicked my seat and parents did nothing.
Pros: Comfortable and sufficient entertainment.
Cons: The food wasn’t spectacular.
Pros: The crew welcomed us on board the night of December 31st. They celebrated New Year with us and created a comfortable and celebrative atmosphere. Amazing service!
Cons: Latam screwed my son in law, pregnant daughter, and 2 year old grandson. Due to a delayed Latam flight, they missed all international connections. They were stuck in Santiago for 4 days with no help from Latam. Their bags were lost by the airline. NOBODY behind the counters took responsibility to help get them home!! Their passports, credit cards and money were all stolen during this 4 day period.
Pros: There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother.
Cons: We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane
Pros: crew! just awesome
Cons: some people being to loud at sleep times.
Pros: The crew was fabulous! Competent and very helpful, even funny when serving food and drinks! I fly very frequently but this was one of the nicest crews I had in years!
Pros: Great short flight and they got us to Santiago early since everyone was at the gate
Cons: They changed my seat without notice nor great explanation.
Pros: Personal on board is always great in LATAM
Cons: Personal at gate always suckin LATAM They lie in order to push their policies
Pros: I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are.
Cons: I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar.
Pros: Good attention by the airline solved my problems
Cons: The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. 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!
Pros: good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good
Cons: Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls
Cons: No Movie Screen
Cons: My original flight was supposed to land at 8:55pm but I was notified that it had been changed to land closer to midnight which was a problem because my hotel closed at midnight. After talking to the customer service agent at the airport he told me the reason my flight had changed was because my original airplane was flying out of another airport and the only way to make the flight that I had booked was to take a cab ride to the other airport. What he didn't explain was that its a 45+ minute drive between the two airports and I only had about 1.5 hours to get my bag, get on the taxi, check in at the other airport, clear security AND customs. Somehow by the grace of god it all came together but it was certainly a harrowing experience, not to mention the $45 I lost in cab fares. I cannot recommend LAN/LATAM.
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: Good service
Cons: I lost my luggage (bag). I had to wait about 1 hour to go to the counter. Airport staff told me to go to gate 11 then gate 1 then finally to Latam counter.
