The pilot scared everyone when he said told us that we were deboarding and literally said "it's better to find out now while we are still on the ground because it could have happened in the air and that would not have been good". As someone who has flight anxiety that was not something that sat well. In addition we were not given any instruction on what to do at that point. Should we try to find another flight?.. Should we wait for the plane to get fixed?.. Are we all boarding another plane?... Everyone was confused and frustrated!"

Pros: "Seating was spacious in 4A, and I am a larger than average person. Loved the Terra Chips for a snack! Generously gave me the whole can of Coke Zero, where some airlines dole drinks out in half can servings. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "There was some entertainment at Ft Lauderdale Airport when we arrived. The person who knew how to drive the bridge between aircraft and terminal was not there. Someone pitched in and rammed the aircraft around 4 times, trying to make a good connection."

Pros: "flight attendants were attentive"

Pros: "Es impresionante lo que ha desmejorado Avianca en su clase ejecutiva. Un vuelo de más de 5 horas y la silla no reclina sino solo un poco y no hay donde apoyar los pies. La comida estuvo mala."
Cons: "Tienen que mejorar su servicio en ejecutiva y si les toca usar ese avión mejorar la comodidad de las sillas."

Pros: "Cada ves que viajo en Avianca , estoy viendo y sintiendo un detrimento en la atención así como en la comodidad de los aviones. Viaje de Washington a Bogotá en busines, y la incomodidad de el avión es desesperante. Q pasa AVIANCA? Acaso se va a acabar nuestra empresa colombiana q ha sido el org"

Cons: "The arrival to bogota was a caos. We waited 2 hours to get immigration..."

Pros: "Only the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Lady at check in didn't provide proper "tag" for stroller. No consideration while traveling with kids, I was accepted to board with the last group."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly food was good"

Cons: "Check in at Dulles was chaos, even though we had completed online check in and just needed to do our luggage drop. I am pregnant and was carrying a 2 y/o toddler and had no preferential/priority treatment. Though we arrived 2+ hours before our departure, we only just made our flight. Ground crew were unfamiliar with Brazilian laws on entry for citizens with expired passports. Our bags never left DC and we received them over 72 hours later in Sao Paulo, after much confusion. We were not offered any means of compensation for this inconvenience."

Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour at Dulles. When we arrived in Bogota, at 9:40 we had time to catch the connecting flight to Montevideo which was scheduled to leave at 10:20pm.... but instead we stayed in the tarmac without moving for over 45 minutes. There were over 30 passengers that were to take that connecting flight, so the airline had plenty of reasons to wait for us. Instead the airline, AVIANCA, chose to leave all of us stranded in Bogota for 24 hours. We will have all type of problems because of this we had hotel reservations as well as car rental reservations that may be lost because we didn't showed up. By the way according to one of the passengers whose husband travelled on the same flight the day before. The same thing happened to him 1 day earlier."

Pros: "Everything !!!!"

Cons: "I didn't know where I should go after Customs in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was connecting to a domestic flight to Goiania, Brazil, so I needed to drop off my checked bag somewhere to be sent to the plane's cargo. I went to the check-in desk for Avianca, and then they pointed me to the nearby bag drop-off area, which had a 45-minute line. The time wasn't too important for me in that I made it to boarding 25 minutes before the flight--the part that would have been better would be to have on the itinerary that I go to the Avianca check-in/bag drop-off area in Terminal 2 after Customs."

Pros: "jFk To DCA crew is fine and helpful."
Cons: "Crew and flight from DCA to JFK was terrible. We left over 30 minutes later with no explanation as to what was taking so long.

Pros: "Good price compared to direct flight on United"

Cons: "We sat on tarmac for over an hour before taking offfood"

Cons: "No explanation was given"

Cons: "Apparently is high season and therefore they refused to take my extra luggage that I was willing to pay. I was told to throw my luggage away. I don't live in the US, thankfully my niece does and she was able to take the luggage home. Now I don't know when I'll get my stuff"

Cons: "On my return flight home, they wouldn't accommodate adjusting my itinerary because I wasn't feeling well. I was willing to pay change fee for 1 layover instead of the 2 layovers on my original itinerary. They wanted to charge me $700 which was greater than my original ticket. So I flew on the original itinerary at started my travels @ 7am on Monday. Flight from Bogotá to Barranquilla w/Avianca airlines was great. In Barranquilla I had a 4 hr layover, checked in w/Copa agent and he said my bag was on plane. In Panama, there was a 1.5 hr layover so I assumed no issues getting my luggage to the correct connection. The flight from Panama was delayed by 40 mins w/no explanation. We just sat on plane. They only played one older movie, plane was old and they did 1 beverage service w/meal for a 5.5 hour flight. I finally arrived back to ORD @ 12:15 am Tuesday. I waited for my luggage in baggage claim for 35 mins. It doesn't arrive and I ask attendant, who brushes me off and says this is the claim for Copa. She disappears for 30-40 mins. I finally see her walking back into international baggage claim (over an hour has passed that I've been in baggage claim) and tell her my luggage did not arrive. She asks me for my claim ticket then proceeds to say "oh yes, I was informed your bag did not make it." I'm upset because it's 1:40am and she could have saved me an hour if she would have helped me when I first asked. I also am curious how an airline loses my bag twice."

Cons: "I was a little cramped on the plane."

Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."

Cons: "seats and plane were old. Business class seats need an upgrade badly. They should discount the tickets if we're made to fly in 25 year old seats. Business class service was rushed. It was like the goal was to get your items up and collected early so the attendant could disappear for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "I love the attendance of the host. The flight was smooth. People were friendly with me. The host spoke good English language, I almost missed my flight but I was helped to get on flight."

Cons: "Plane delay made us leave after midnight."

Cons: "Flight was late by 1 hr 20 mins, Latam should have informed us better on delays and resulting changes."

Cons: "Latam Airlines has the worst service for the fare paid. We were charged for two carry on bags while other passengers with same bags didn’t have to pay. Crew gave us stupid explanations to justify charging us like you are in the boarding group 7 which we never asked to be placed. It’s the airline business to choose some passengers to charge $100000 Colombian pesos for getting bags, and then after being forced to pay for the bags crew doesn’t give a receipt so we wouldn’t have proof of the fraude. Charging for bags is at discretion of crew. When buying the tickets for me and my family I checked the policy about luggage and the website doesn’t state about being charged for getting regular size bags like ours."

Pros: "Seats were fairly comfortable"

Pros: "The plane was better than the one we came into Colombia on."
Cons: "Offering water would be really great. Can it be that expensive to offer a cup of cold water?"

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."

Pros: "Everything was great except for the flight was delayed by over 3 hours"
Cons: "No delay would have been better"

Cons: "Yes the boarding it was terrible"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "excellent in alla aspects"

Pros: "El segundo avión más fonfortable"
Cons: "Cancelación de vuelo, salida tarde del aeropuerto, no brindan si no agua. Salida tarde de cartagena. No informan nada."

Pros: "Crew on board were nice"
Cons: "Staff at front desk were not friendly, baggage pricing and restrictions were unclear. Did not allow for online check in ahead of time. Service at check in desk very very slow"

Pros: "Not much. The quality of the service of lan after the merger with tam has decreased substantially"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and we missed the last flight. In the new flight they lost one bag. After 41 hours of traveling latam surely ruined our holiday memories"

Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and unhelpful. I will fly Avianca on domestic flights in Colombia"

Cons: "Entertainment kept crashing so we had to keep going back to find where we were with our movies"

Pros: "it was a very nice and pleasant trip!"

Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"

Pros: "Good seats and service"

Cons: "Hidden bag fees make this airline a low value-for-money option."

Cons: "Hidden baggage fees. Extra fee to check in a bag was not disclosed at the moment I purchased my ticket. This airline doesn't even provide water to passengers. It's as stingy as it gets among all other airlines I've flow and value for money is poor."

Cons: "It is unbelievable that in an international flight they don’t give even a glass of water at least we pay extra for it. The tickets is not cheap at all for receiving so bad service"

Pros: "Staff is on top of everything on every aspect, from beginning to end. My favorite airline, far away from the rest, crew seems eager to help and make your trip the best possible experience."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The flight itself was great. No problems with with the actual process of boarding or landing. The flight was even ahead of schedule. The problem was with the transfer."
Cons: "Normally, international-domestic transfers are pretty difficult to coordinate. This particular one (Bogota>Miami, Miami>San Francisco) seemed particularly so. On top of being just enough time to wait for our bags, drop them off with the next airline, walk across the airport, enter security (which went exceedingly slowly), we had just enough time to get to the gate before boarding. This is why I gave a lower rating."

Pros: "Great Staff. Beautiful plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Miami and then some more arriving in Bogota. I understand this isnt the airline's fault"

Pros: "Food is good. Customer service is great."
Cons: "They didnt put movies."

Pros: "Friendly crew Nice rate Very fast and friendly check in"
Cons: "Difficult to do web check-in Very expansive to make changes in the ticket"

Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."

Pros: "nice space in business. Great airline !"
Cons: "the meal I chose was too small. I landed in Bogota hungry. But it was my fault"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The plane is ok but it is an old 767"

Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."

Pros: "Ticketing and boarding were well executed."
Cons: "The service was slow and not very helpful."

Pros: "I enjoyed the customer appreciation the crew showed, at all times. Catered my vegetarian diet and their food was exceptional!"
Cons: "Had minor technical problems with my headphones. However, my flight was not crowded and was able to use the empty seat next to mine to watch a movie."

Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."

Pros: "Cabin crew excellent!"
Cons: "A little miffed by having to deboard and reboard on the outbound leg because an air conditioning problem"

Cons: "The flight from Lisa was cancelled and the 18 hour wait in Lina was horrible!!! All day at the airport!"

Pros: "Very professional crew. Not a stressful flight. Great fare to Lima, Peru. Definitely will use again."
Cons: "The seats are not the most comfortable. Durable for 7 hours."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Poor leg space Entertaiment Poor food"

Pros: "They have all the boxes checked. It is what you would expect from a coach flight."
Cons: "They ran out of overhead baggage space pretty quickly. I found a spot several seats down, but I'm not sure everyone else go in."

Cons: "1 hour delay....., without explanations-"
