Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Cheaper price"
Pros: "It wasn’t"
Cons: "Why are you selling the food now ? It supposed to be included in the price when you purchase the flight, the attendant didn’t want it to give me a pillow or neither a blanket , I’m really disappointed with my experience..."
Cons: "Food was undeserving for a 6 hour flight. One hour late with no previous warning and inflexible luggage policy."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When they were giving safety instructions we couldn’t see the videos. I’m glad nothing happened. They manage to fix the issue with the entertainment after dinner."
Cons: "The aircraft was to old"
Cons: "Nothing everything was excellent"
Pros: "The entertainment and food!"
Cons: "Not having to wait 4.5 hrs due to mechanical issues :("
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Delayed the flight by 7 hours and there wasn’t an available gate when we landed. We had to wait another hour to deplane"
Cons: "We waited for 5 hours in El Salvador airport"
Pros: "I liked the fact the you keep reminding me dates and time of my travel."
Cons: "Everything was okay."
Cons: "Avianca overbooked the flight by 10 passengers. They would not board the flight until they got 10 volunteers to except only $240 voucher for delaying their flight by one day. It took them three hours to accomplish that. The hot food had been delivered on time to the plane, so that also sat for three hours. By the time it was served during the flight it had turned to rubber. This was all together a dreadful experience. We missed our connecting flight in Los Angeles and Avianca airlines provided no help on that. ."
Pros: "In Bogota, the attendant rushed me and grand daughter to our connecting flight, very appreciative of that service! We made it with no time to spare, unfortunately no bathroom stop or water. Variety of Entertainment."
Cons: "I requested,water for my 5 year old grand daughter as soon as we boarded. I repeated the request 2 more times. One hour later, we were served drinks with everyone else. I am handicapped and had to walk to the end of the plane to get water the second time! :("
Cons: "At take off water from the AC unit started Pouring my seat and my boyfriend’s seat (window and middle row 32 seats K and J). We sprung up to check to see if a water bottle from the overhead compartment was leaking. We were immediately yelled at by crew to sit down because it was take off. They didn’t see the water that was pouring down on us (from where they were seated) and other passengers were also trying to explain to crew members water was pouring down on us- luckily there was no one in the isle seat so we were able to shift one seat over. Otherwise we would have had to sit with water pouring down on us for 30 mon. The crew came over and said they could switch out the seat cushion. But that did nothing really because our clothes were totally soaked and it smelled bad from the water from the AC. Water also go on our electronics (headphones, iPad and phones) So it was a horrible 8 hour flight back to Los Angeles. Really sucks - I was a fan of Avianca - now I’m not impressed with how they maintain their planes or customer service for passengers who get soaked by their plane’s malfunction."
Pros: "the plane departed on time, but the food is not too ideal, generally, l satisfied with your crews service , but when l checked in at the Costa Rica airport, the ground crew's service attitude was not friendly indeed.her bad attitude deeply impressed me."
Pros: "The entertainment by far was one of the best I’ve ever seen on an airplane. The games the movies the tv shows- all of it was really well selected. The food was good although they don’t give much of it (but then again who serves food nowadays?)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 hours. The issue wasn’t addressed and they kept telling us the flight wasn’t delayed. Prob the worst seats I’ve ever sat on- at one point i used the pillow to sit on because it was that firm!"
Pros: "Generous food and beverage. No 1st checked luggage fee."
Cons: "My nonstop flight was anything but. At the San Jose Airport I got one boarding pass, and yet was told the flight was not direct when I inquired to confirm. I did not like that I had to offload some of my belongings out of my checked luggage. This was especially inconvenient as I had to deplane in Guatamala and go through their customs and security procedure all to get on the same plane 3 not so easy to get to gates over. And me with a broken toe, you can see how this would be not fun especially because I did not have any boarding pass or other information even telling me what gate I should be boarding at. It was really a small miracle that another passenger found someone to ask and I overheard the gate #. Stressful."
Pros: "The plane is amazing"
Cons: "Crew was uptight and not responsive, food was awful and there was no vegetarian option,"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because our first flight was delayed. We arrived when our flight was scheduled to take off but instead of holding that flight for maybe 30 minutes so everyone with connections could make it, we had to spend the night in Bogota. At least we were provided with hotel and food vouchers but don’t see how that is cost effective or good service for the airline when holding the plane for less than an hour would have allowed dozens of people to make it back the day we were scheduled to."
Pros: "There were many babies and small children on this fight , the crew did a great job of assisting families . Also they really strived to assist any request"
Cons: "Once boarded completely we sat in an ice cold plane for 1 hour before takeoff told to stay seated and not use the bathrooms. More communication needed from cockpit for the delay, and when we might takeoff , passengers and crew were freezing..."
Pros: "No assistance with carry on bag"
Cons: "Proactive crew to assist the elderly"
Cons: "It was late and then I missed my connection, and an Avianca employee told me there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on. However, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Cons: "We upgraded to business class but it didn’t make up for the old plane. It was loud, old and dirty, the crew was good. It was was a 5+ hour flight and it would have been great to be on a newer plane, which they use for shorter flights."
Cons: "Boarding very long. Plane left 45 minutes late, no explanation given. Crew too chatty on PA - had to keep earbuds in all the time. Luggage took an hour in LAX, with priority bags coming out last."
Cons: "See above + air hostesses speak poor English. When asked to persuade certain travellers to put their seats in the upright position during mealtimes they refused and claimed that it is bussines of mine to arrange for that. In the course of previous flight they have hower required that. Very confusing. The behaviour and performance of the crew was hardly proffesional. They paid little attention e.g. To people who did respect instructions concerning fastening the seat belts orcto remain seated during landing, etc."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "My son's entertainment center did not work and tje crew could not do something about it."
Pros: "Service, food & comfort are unmatched! staff kind & professional. couldnt ask for more."
Cons: "The passengers on this flight from San Salvador to LAX were drunk and standing in the aisles and talking VERY loudly for nearly the duration of the 4.5 hour flight, and the crew did nothing about it. I asked the crew (a grumpy male flight attendant) if they are allowed to do that, and he merely grunted. The female flight attendants smiled at the large men drinking in the aisles and continued to bring them drinks. My boyfriend had a large man's butt in his face for the duration of the flight. Behind us a man was talking very loudly and obnoxiously about his travels to the point where his voice woke us up. The crew did NOTHING to mitigate the obnoxious behavior of the passengers, and allowed them to stand in the aisle for the whole flight, to the point where we felt claustrophobic and invaded upon. We were particularly surprised as we've heard that this violates airline policy AND the crew did nothing to even ask them to sit or to move to the back of the plane. In addition, it was very hot at the AC was not working above our seats."
Pros: "Entertainment, seat comfort"
Cons: "20 minutes on the plane stopped at the gate. 15 minute bus ride to the International terminal. Over sized bags took 2 hours to arrive. Regular baggage over an hour."
Pros: "Non stop flight, the plane, and i got a good price."
Cons: "Food very low quality, the crew's attitude is very far from the ideal, compared to my next fligth on EVA Air."
Cons: "Check in / drop off bagage. Waiting in line for one hour to drop off the bagage even though I did heck in online."
Cons: "lots of turbulence/ storms didn't get movies or food or earsets etc for a couple of hours!"
Cons: "After receiving my luggage in Los Angeles, I discovered that they had broken the zipper of the bag and also the lock in the bag. They also took from my bag gifts I had bought for my friends (lighters with their name)!!"
Pros: "From boarding to inflight, everything was excellent. My wife and I are already looking at routes that Avianca flies so we can book again!"
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: "Pasta plate was delicious"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour Crew Service: 1) Asked for pillow twice and they told me to go find a chair with an empty one 2) Asked crew for a glass of wine and she told me that next time that I go to restroom I can ask for one Upon arrival there was no gate ready so we had to wait longer to get shuttled to Tom Bradley Terminal and there was no communication of this Terminal change (from 2 to Tom Bradley)"
Cons: "Screen didn't work properly"
Pros: "Like the non-stop flight. It saves a lot of time."
Cons: "I realize it is necessary but being one of the random security checks before boarding sucked."
Pros: "Good selection of movies, free exit row seats and extremely cheap fare"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding with extra security measures before entering the plane (opening carry on and patting you down), we were about 30minutes late, crew couldn't control passengers with kids (kids were running around the plane), horrible food and stiff seats (barely any cushion)."
Pros: "Excelent trip"
Pros: "Everyone is always very friendly and flights are always on time, I've flown first class and economy and they treat you just as friendly! No problems with my bags or anything"
Pros: "Before our flight, several people were called to the check-in desk. These were obviously frequent flyers because later we saw these individuals sitting in Executive Class. Felt a little jealous, because I'm not a frequent flyer, but it was nice to see how Avianca takes care of its regular customers. Everything about the flight was first class, even if I was sitting in coach. The staff were friendly and helpful, the plane was comfortable--a 787, everyone's favorite--and the food was actually very tasty: chicken breast with a delicious green curry/salsa, some rice, green salad. Water and juices were available in the aft galley in between the meal and light snack before arrival. The entertainment offerings were terrific. If I hadn't had such great traveling companions to chat with, I would have caught up on some new releases I had missed, or one of the classics--"Singing in the Rain," "Citizen Kane," and much more. I don't know how you could improve the customer experience. Great job, Avianca!"
Pros: "I fly avianca often and their service sometimes very, this particular time the crew was very professional and polite. We did good timing, but I do need to add that avianca has never been late to a fly I have taken, always on time. Food has changed, it used to be better and more generous but food in general on a plane these days is not the reason why you would enjoy flying."
Pros: "The food they served for dinner was enjoyable."
Cons: "After arriving in San Salvador from San Jose, another passenger informed us that there was a flight departing for LAX at around 3:30 PM. Considering that our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:25 PM, we decided to ask the customer representative at the Avianca information desk if there were any open seats available on our flight home to LAX. She informed us that there were open seats BUT we would have to pay an extra $200 to board that flight. I have been on other airlines before and they have offered me the option to get on an earlier flight - FREE OF CHARGE. Considering I had bought my complete, round trip ticket for $435, the idea of paying an extra $200 for one leg of my journey seemed ludicrous! So I stayed the 6+ hours in El Salvador. Fast forward 6 hours and the desk agent at our gate announces that our flight is completely booked and they are offering $300 for anyone who will give up their seats. I am PISSED. Avianca knew our flight was overbooked and had the opportunity to take two passengers off the list and free up seats for the next flight! Instead, they chose to make us wait and delayed our flight. I do not understand Avianca's customer service procedures. Why would you not put my friend and I on the next flight when you know the next flight is going to be overbooked and possibly delayed? I'll I know is that if I can avoid flying with Avianca in the future, I will do it."
Pros: "It was awesome that movies and checking bags were free for the flight! That was something i did not expect:)"
Cons: "I had an original seat that I paid for, but because the flight was overbooked and oversold, i moved three times to different sections towards the back of the plane, in the end where my seat did not have electricity, light, or the tv working. I moved because there was a family that wanted to sit together, and that I completely understand, but what I don't get is why I wasn't told or given a seat of equal value that I Paid for. it was an 8 hour flight without light to read, no tv to watch and no music."
