Cons: "El vuelo me dejo en bogota"

Pros: "vrew was creat"
Cons: "I asked to put lacto ovo vegetrian meals on my flights since I could not do it at booking and this guy only put it on my outgoing flight and not my returning so when I tried to check in I chatted with an agent he told me it had to be done 24h before and it was too late. So I had only snacks."

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: "Flight crew, as always, was excepcional."
Cons: "Ground crew a bit stressed out for the many delayed flights that Avianca is having. Boarding process disorganized with people breaking into the line because of the flight delay."

Cons: "I had been checked in and when I arrived at the gate they told me and my 13 year old son that we could not fly on our direct flight to Medellín because it was overbooked and they had decided to change planes. Absolutely ridiculous, it was about 20-30 passengers that were denied boarding, including us. They sent us on a plane through Bogota, then to Medellín, arriving 7 hours later and only with a dumb breakfast voucher. I spoke to them that I had an important medical appointment for which I was travelling for, it did not matter. They made no no accommodations whatsoever."

Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"

Pros: "The airplane"
Cons: "The delay and boarding"

Pros: "Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "We had a 6 hour delay after traveling all day and being up all night. The actual flight, when we finally got on, was packed and uncomfortable. Our seats didn't recline and were very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Aeromexico checked my bag and instead of un clicking the belt on my luggage to open it they cut it off. When I picked up my bag at baggage claim at my final destination they didn't close my luggage and my clothes were hanging out!! Ridiculous. Also th flight attendants were rude and unprofessional!!! The food on the plane made me gag, it smelled and looked disgusting."

Pros: "Plane is fine"

Pros: "Excellent service, good food, just in time. Chairs are very comfortable and entertainment is excellent"

Pros: "Modern comforts, pleasantries, good service, clean, spacious Searle Inc. Great experience. Felt like flying in the old days. Great planes."

Pros: "My flight had an unnecessary stop at Bogota, when the lady on the counter asked me where I was heading to and found out it was a place so close she asked me if I wouldn't mind going on a direct flight of 2 hours instead of waiting for a 19 hour flight. I love Avianca and I've never preferred another airline. Their customers attention is great."
Cons: "The only problem I had is that they were out of one of the meals when they got to my seat."

Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"

Pros: "Flight went smooth, crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seat's headphone jack was broken and it was difficult to recline. My seat numbers were changed on one flight and to other in the second part... Not expected"

Pros: "Great airline. Nice, comfortable planes. Would fly again."

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."

Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline.

Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."

Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Cons: "Delayed like 5 times, finally canceled. Rerouted thru additional stops than bought."

Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Entertainment."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Cons: "The departure was delayed. And is unbelievable you are charging baggage"

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."

Pros: "That it got me from A to B."
Cons: "Going from PHX to DTW I didn't recieve any confirmation email 24 hrs in advance. The AC in the cabin wasnt working and was unbearably hot. From DTW to PHX still didn't get a confirmation email 24 hrs in advance again with any policys or check in. Arrived "on time" but wouldn't let us and other paying customers through to our gate...wanted to make me pay additionally for our return flight the NEXT day when we both had to miss work. Was very disappointed with customer service and the way thinga were handled from the beginning. Frontier has really declined as of recent. Supposed to be going on a trip in October and initially was going to use frontier but not sure I will be any longer. Wouldn't recommend to anyone after that."

Cons: "The landing was horrible"

Pros: "Polite employees from Frontier, courteous and helpful. Knowledgeable, too."
Cons: "What happened to, snacks & soda on flights? Everything is *for purchase *.other airlines done have sales people on board, credit card, for purchase snacks ~ silly!"

Cons: "Nothing super fantastic to say, but also no real complaints!"

Pros: "Getting off plain"

Cons: "Plane was delayed half hour. Could have been cleaned better. Forward bathroom smelled like urine. Don't like the request for tip when purchasing food or beverage. We are already charged for EVERYTHING!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no free drinks? 2.99 for a coke? no pretzels? why i had to pay 70$ for my bags what"

Pros: "Gate crew at Denver on May 2nd (afternoon) were just disorganized and confused. She was just stressed out for no reason. Seems like not a people's person and can't stay calm at ALL. Can't handle stress at all"

Pros: "No comment on food or entertainment"

Pros: "Great take off and landing. Very comfortable seats."
Cons: "That no snacks or beverages were provided for free"

Cons: "Delayed and delayed. Almost three hours"

Pros: "They give front of line privilege to military."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortable. The seats do not recline, there's no where to charge electronics and the planes were dirty. Both of my flights were delayed by two hours and updates of the flight status was not updated while little information was provided as to why the flights were delayed."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Went fast"
Cons: "Very turbulent"

Pros: "No wifi made the trip unbearable."

Pros: "Flying through the air"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The airline was prompt and actually ahead of schedule fly both departure and arrival on both trips. The plane was clean comfortable and all around fantastic for being a little older. The pilot was amazing, very conscious of movements and incredible landing skills."
Cons: "No free drink or peanuts."

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The delay"

Pros: "nothing, the service was terrible all around for frontier airlines."
Cons: "The airline had a hidden Carry On Luggage Charge that blindsided me. The combined cost of taking a carry on cost over half the amount of my roundtrip airfare for three people. Other airlines provide complimentary carry ons as a service to their customers. On top of this the flight was delayed by more than six hours and we were not offered any sort of refreshments on the flight free of charge to compensate for the large delay and overall made the experience poor. I will never fly with frontier again and would neither recommend the company to my clients or friends. I demand a refund on the charge of my carry on luggage as that was a shady business practice and poor service by frontier airlines for also delaying my flight."

Pros: "None specific"
Cons: "Unremarkable"

Pros: "Plane felt clean. Boarding efficient as was check in."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. The only slightly negative I noticed was the window was very dirty on the inside and the seat back in front of me was too."

Pros: "I'd never flown frontier until this flight. I was very satisfied, with the exception being the lack of entertainment. I scored low because there wasn't any. That doesn't mean I was unhappy, as it was a three hour flight, and I'm perfectly capable of being screen free for a few hours. There was ample leg room, and the flight attendant staff was not only friendly, but funny and individual. One was even cracking jokes, which I loved. It keeps the stress of traveling off my mind. Additionally, the flight was fairly smooth, free of turbulence, and early arriving. I'll be flying frontier again for sure."
Cons: "The cheap flight price was coupled with a charge for carry-on luggage. I didn't know about this, so I was a bit put off."

Cons: "Outrageous bag fees. Need to read the fine print, since $80 per person for bags fees is significant."

Cons: "It took over an hour to retrieve checked luggage."

Cons: "Comfortability of the plane itself. It made weird noises that were kind of alarming"

Cons: "Nothing. :)"

Cons: "Charged $55 for carrying on a (14 in x . 15 in x 5 in) soft material shoulder bag. Usually used for my laptop, but not on this trip. Not charged on the DTW to LGA segment but charged on the LGA to DTW segment. I have never encountered such a charge for this bag ever."
