Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Pros: "Attentive, professional crew, clean plane, great service!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "Delay in getting bag"
Cons: "One of the main reasons why I chose Jetblue its because it is an ALMOST 4-5 star experience with great affordable ticket prices. Unfortunaltelly the ALMOST it is so, due such an important role such a host/hostess at the airport representing so poorly the company, EVERY TIME I leave from fortlauderdale airport. Once the check-in kiosk fails to complete to check you in (and I am ok with machines poor work) you are directed to a crew members in the counters. A host/hostess from jetblue standing in front of the counters, instead of greet you properly or showing some sort of degree of willingness to welcome you or help you tell you "yes, what do you need... ? That never fails! It feels like you are breaking in into a zone you are not suppose to be, and annoyingly you are disturbing these people. It so confusing why they have those attitudes, specially at that position, where you really need to clear up the bad weed in choosing your personnel. I think these few"crew members" can make a smooth transition to nightclub bouncers, where I'm sure will be a great fit."
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to some maintenance issues. Staff were friendly calm and helpful to the extent they could be with something out of their control. The company rerouted a different plane to take us since ours was going to be so late, turning a 2 1/2 hr delay into just a 1 hr delay. Boarding was super efficient, in flight service excellent. They comped us our headphones because of the delay, a nice touch. This is my 3rd great customer service experience with JB in as many months (the other 2 involved waiving charges to change flights, once gor me when I was suddenly ill, and for my cousin, when a changed circumstance made her need to travel on a different day, alone with 4 kids). Between Kayak and JetBlue app I got very frequent updates on flight status, but gate staff also were there and informed us in person."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence on take off , no fault of anyone except Mother Nature .. all in all a great flight !"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "DCA boarding crew were very cranky. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Never realized just how small these seats are until this flight, stuck in the middle of two men. Battle to use the armrests, someone kept passing wind and lots of turbulence. Paid full price for this miserable flight."
Pros: "The fact that there was barely anyone on the flight"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Pros: "Enough leg room"
Cons: "A 5 hour fly with no food. charge me for coffee charge me for earphones $5, with no signal to watch a movie or tv it was delayed enough that I miss my connecting plane on latam to Montevideo.i was taken to a nice Sheraton till next night to fly in avianca.at nine pm. at 8 pm avianca cancel that trip so I was send to Chile. got there at 1pm, no luggage, wait till eight am for the fly to Uruguay got to my final destination 3days later,today is my 4day of my vacation with no luggage"

Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"

Cons: "Endless delays and extremely shitty boarding staff."
Pros: "Leg room."
Cons: "The 2 hour plus delay in leaving due to jet blue's poor management around crew rotation."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was from front to back and soooooo slow. The connection in Bogotá was impossible since it took almost 2 hours to go through immigration. What a nightmare. After missing our connection, the Avianca Special Services associate wasn’t rude and non-communicative, and preferred to text her friends instead of attending to us."
Cons: "I'm tall and I hace no problems because there is a lot of space between files"
Pros: "The flight was on time"

Cons: "When arriving at the airport in Bogota not only the flight was delayed but the gate was changed and the person at the counter in the gate wrote the wrong gate on the ticket and flight to Lima was missed. They booked the passenger in the next flight 9 hours after. They did not provide any food nor hotel so passenger to stay at the airport. My guess, they overbooked the flight as they always do, this trip was for my son (20) traveling by himself for the first time, they took advantage of his inexperience; this is is my 3rd bad experience with Avianca and definitely the last one!"

Cons: "1. Departure flight was delayed over four hours in El Salvador. Had to be put on another airline and they lost my luggage. 2. Return flight was cancelled not once, but twice. Spent over 27 hours in airport before I finally began flying. WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR MY HASSLE and lost money on hotels and lost wages."
Pros: "We had an amazing flight"
Cons: "I was very thirsty when I was in the airplane, when I boarding and I ask for water the crew didn’t gave me soon."

Pros: "It was not crowed"
Cons: "No veggetarian options"
Pros: "flight was smooth and on time. Crew was good (responsive to passenger needs)"
Cons: "Food was disappointing (generic airline food). Entertainment wasn't much to get excited about. Apparently the Airbus 319 only has the tiny screens that fold down from the ceiling. Fortunately, what was playing wasn't interesting anyway."
Cons: "The 11 hour flight delay and the guy putting duct tape on the wing. I didnt have an issue with him personally, more the fact that he was duct taping the plane."

Cons: "I wish the flight had some movies"
Pros: "Comfortable and spacious seats and a blanket!"
Cons: "It was sad to fly for 6 hours and have not even a personal TV in front of me, There was only one per section. Furthermore, there were no sockets, or usb ports!. In long flights they should have better entertainment options and also sockets between seats. Also, their vegan food options are poor."
Cons: "The Kayak/ Avianca site does not allow one to input TSA Pre info. Although I had printed myh boarding pass online ahead of time, i had to wait in a long long line at the check in counter to get an updated boarding pass with TSA Pre on it. Not happy!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I plugged in my headphones grateful to have a personal monitor for entertainment on the long flight. However, I couldn't hear the movie. So I definitely couldn't enjoy some music. The passengers on either side of me also did not have working headphone outlets either. With some jiggling and pushing the headphone set in violently, I could get some sound, but not clear."
Cons: "Airline connecting flight from rio to Lima to miami. First flight was delayed, the four of us missed our second flight. Then we had to go to bogota from Lima and run to make it to our last flight. All of this made us miss work and sleep, 26 in airports and airplanes. The worst experience. Rude staff on top of it all"
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable on both flights for such a duration... The layover/transfer in Bogota was chaotic, and rushed. My luggage did not make it to the final destination, so I am here with none of my belongings :("
Pros: "All. Comfort of the plane. All was on time. Entertainment"
Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, had the first seat of economy with lots of space."

Pros: "Crew very good price was good"
Cons: "After landing in Colombia(in transit) we wait for over an hour in the plane, finishing our trip in the cargo area, then we have to run to take our conection."
Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."
Cons: "Biarding needs to take bus"
Pros: "Was delayed more than three hours and the ticket to lunch was very poor"
Pros: "Much better flight: bigger plane, more spacious interior, didn't feel claustrophobic at all, managed to nap"
Pros: "They were very helpful and friendly. At the gate they changed our seats to something more comfortable, without us asking. Boarding went smoothly and efficiently."
Pros: "All the amenities, service, staff. The food on this leg of the trip and the staff were the best. The others were very good, but this group stood out!"
Pros: "The service is great."
Cons: "There are no vegetarian options on flight."
Pros: "Great trip. Boarding was efficient. Small plan for a long trip. Seat was comfortable, but on an A319 for a 5 hour trip is stretching it. Either way the crew was great and the service was good."
Cons: "The flight was late but made up some time"
Pros: "It was easy to check in at the counter and online. Staff was friendly and responsive. Ease of navigation from country to country with plenty of visible staff available to answer questions."
Cons: "The long layover was a bit taxing. It would be better to cut these down in case of changes in weather condition"
Pros: "Tried to have two of my children's flight changed to our flight but the Avianca flight person said they could not do the change in Cusco and instead to do it in Lima.. The flight left 45 min late to Lima and arrived 20 min late. We ran to the Avianca counter and they then told us we were too late to make the change after 10 min of talking. We all missed our flight to bogota as a result and they told us flippantly we would have to pay to fly the next morning because the next flight that night was full. They then tried to dismiss us with a phone number to call to get help. After I protested, the supervisor finally cane over and after explaining how many times we were not helped and given false info, she finally miraculously found seats on the next flight and put us on it, in the very back of the plane even though there were many seats throughout the plane available. It should NEVER have come to that. I am disgusted with Avianca's customer service."
Cons: "Poor customer service. Lied to in Cusco about not being able to change the flight. Lied to in Lima about not being able to change the flight. Lied to in Lima about there being no seats on the next flight. Not helped and instead just given a phone number. To make matters worse, I also felt like we were racially discrimated against. We are African American and were treated poorly compared to the two Peruvian men who missed their flight as well. Avianca has a problem if this is its policy."
Pros: "The trip in general was great!"
Cons: "Getting the bags too way too long ; after a long flight, will be nice to get out of the airport faster."
Pros: "Los empleados de.mostrador solucionaron rápidamente cada consulta y la tripulación fue muy simpática. El avión estaba en muy buenas condiciones y limpieza. Pude elegir el asiento en el checkin online lo que fue genial para.mi gusto. Una compañía que trabaja en simpatizar con sus clientes. Al.menos lo sentí así en este viaje y en las otras.conexiones saludos"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Turbulence."
Pros: "Old airplane.. Onky one barhroom working for more than 200 people in a 5 hour tavel! Horrible food!"
Cons: "This kind of airplanes can't flight anymore"
Cons: "Eu estou arrasada, eu recebi meus emails todos em inglês, tive um grave problema familiar e me confundi com a data do voo, perdi o voo e a avianca queria me cobrar mais 2.000,00 para poder viajar no dia seguinte, estou péssima, perdi uma viagem de trabalho, onde está a humanidade de voces? Onde esta a honestidade? Cobrar penalidades? Ja não é penalidade suficiente eu ter perdido meu voo, ter passado por todo esse constrangimento? Mais dois mil reais só para remarcar meu voo? Capitalistas nojentos, voces contribuem para a piora do mundo!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and offered food and drinks."
Cons: "They used a large plane with 3-section seating for this short jaunt (the kind where there's a third section of seating running down the center). There were a lot of empty seats, so I was surprised to see such a large plane used for a short domestic flight. Additionally, the crew gave me incorrect information about connecting internationally from Lima that, if I had followed those instructions, we would have missed our connecting flight. I'm glad I asked another Avianca rep once inside the airport."
Pros: "flight was good."
Cons: "The wait in between flight is very long. For this return flight the wait at Lima airport transfer was nearly 11 hours. The wait at Bogota airport transfer is about 14 hours. Both of these airports had earlier flights BUT your booking service chose the MAXIMUM WAIT time at these transfer airports."

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. There was no info given to passengers in regards to what gate or terminal you’re landing and in- was only given 20min to get to gate c Terminal 2 from gate b terminal 4.0"

Pros: "very friendly crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew were nice and friendly. The plane was new with lots of amenities"
Cons: "The new plane has NO leg room at all. It’s the worst leg room i’ve Experienced for such a large plane. I’m 6’1” and my knees would only fit if I spread my legs wide and sit back deep into the chair."
Pros: "The movies"

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, plenty of leg room and I live the individual chargers at each chair."
Cons: "When I pay more for a direct flight, I expect my flight to be non stop. Delta changed my flight and added a layover but I didn't receive any recompense from the airline. Seems very odd."
Pros: "Chicken kale salad was inedible. I did not know chicken had gristle!"
Pros: "I'm always happy when I get a Delta flight that has the in flight entertainment. Good selection of tv shows, movies and music. Makes the time go by fast"
Cons: "Can't really think of anything I don't like the"
Pros: "The service. The plane (seemed like an international plane). Food options. The service and the service.

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 737-800 series with an entertainment center, the meal was decent and the crew pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Copa does not permit one to make a seat selection at the time of booking - the seats assigned to us upon checking werenot together and in the back of the plane. As Silver customer with United Airlines I would hope for a better choice or what then is the value of the Star Alliance? I likely won’t fly withCopa again. Also, they did not offer hot tea as a beverage selection."
Pros: "I wish I could give more feedback but I was unable to get to my connecting flight."

Pros: "it was nice to actually get a meal. that doesnt happen in the us anymore. i was able to check a bag without a ridiculous $50 charge. the first time i had checked in years and it was very convenient. reminded me of how flying used to be before they all became buses in the sky, and for a very reasonable price. the staff were all very friendly from the gate agent to the flight attendants. also, a free drink is a lovely touch. would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "i had no problems honestly. my most pleasant flightin a while and i fly frequently"
Cons: "No explanation was given"
Pros: "Great Flight, from Dulles to Tocumen"
Cons: "14 hour layover from panama to SPS."
Pros: "Nicest crew! Makes me never want to fly an US airline again."
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."
Pros: "roomy seats, excellent food, very pleasant flight attendants--i would fly Copa again in a heartbeat"
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "Food was awesome, attendants were pretty nice, and it was a great first international flight experience."
Cons: "I was a little cramped on the plane."
Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "La comida"
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: "The seat was quite uncomfortable. I could not sleep properly had a bit of neck pain."
Pros: "So much turbulence! Plus the flight attendant wasn't very friendly."
Pros: "the woman at the recheck counter for united Joanne ...helped me to get on an earlier flight and saved me an 8 hour layover. The woman is an angel......."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "A fly attendant try to make up for me for forgetting our lunch."
Cons: "the disorganization of the other costumers who were changing seats almost make me lose my connection. The crew did not serve our lunch."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 5 hours"
Cons: "We were delayed for a long time without much information given. I arrived 18 hours late to my destination and missed many important appointments."

Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

Hire English speaking people ! Terrible service and we almost lost our flight because the stuff didn’t want to check us in 1h before stating that it’s too late !

the fly too late. delay

Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Good seat space, comfortable, on time arrival"
Cons: "The food was ok, not great. The plane was Very cold!!!"
Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. I was given the wrong seat number and they helped sort it out. They also did priority boarding for us when the queue was ridiculous"
Cons: "The check in process was a mess with people going from all queues and it took far too long. They also have me the wrong seat number for boarding causing lots of confusion"
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Pros: "Good entertainment on board and the crew was fairly attentive, but not as attentive as on other airlines."
Cons: "Food was not great, but at least it was edible. Thought the crew could have also asked about refills more often."
Cons: "Space!!!!"
Pros: "Good seat. Nice aircraft Helpful check in."
Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."
Pros: "Crew, on board entertainment..."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized. A lot of food options but only one dish, missed the salad or other options compared to other companies such as Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and etc.. Drinks were ok, lacked alcohol options compared to other companies."
Cons: "Great service, excellent food, very good quality, comfortable, thanks so much for everything. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
Cons: "Only one gate agent was boarding passengers, which made the boarding process very slow. I was assigned a seat on the aisle in front of the exit row. For a midnight flight, I was really bummed to find out that my seat would not recline! My leg room on the A321 was lacking in comparison with GOL."
Cons: "I missed my flight because a connecting flight I booked with you all got canceled would I be able to get a refund or claim back"
Cons: "TV at each seat"
Pros: "no"
Cons: "everthing"
Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."
Cons: "Boarding was adjacent to C04 with the Aerolineas flight leaving 5 minutes before us. This congested the boarding but was well handled."
Cons: "Flight attendants rude and lack of cleaning in the toilets."
Pros: "The flight left and arrived on time, which is always nice."
Cons: "the seat was a little old and the cabin was a little smelly but was okay when the AC was turned on."
Cons: "Old aircraft Business seat narrow"
Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "easy enough..."
Pros: "I had few questions about emigration in São Paulo and they helped, the food was good and all were very kind!"
Pros: "Amazing service from every staff member I met! Super polite and professional! A shout to Adriana and Matheus for making me feel so welcome!! Thank you and the whole crew for a great experience!"
Cons: "It was great!"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything"
Cons: "Plane broke. Hearded across ramp to another plane. Missed my international connection for a one day delay. I had a 3 hour connection and couldn’t get on the flight. No help from Latam!"
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Very tiny space No complementary food No complementary reserve seats in advance No complementary flight advance"
Pros: "It was very fast to board, and the landing was great"
Cons: "No entertainment, no free snacks"
Cons: "Desorganização do embarque e atraso na saída"
Cons: "Original flight cancelled without any notice / auto check-in not available / delay / aleatory seat selection / poor food service"
Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."
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 seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"
Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."
Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"
Cons: "The flight from Lisa was cancelled and the 18 hour wait in Lina was horrible!!! All day at the airport!"
Pros: "The food was really good. The service was good as well. The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "Economy seats are really uncomfortable for long flights, my knees suffered."
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Late boarding, no television or personal entertainment options, food was not so good."
Pros: "Bad services, bad food, No enterteiment services available."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
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: "I have time toget the other flight but they already have every thing ready to let us in Sao Pablo, I have to stay 1 day. That was very bad."
