Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Our flight was overbooked and we were moved to a later flight causing a 7 hour layover and arrived at 2am the following morning."
Cons: "Lost our luggage on a direct flight"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "My prepaid seat was not taken in consideration."
Pros: "I miss the first leg of my flight and they cancelled my whole ticket and didn’t rebook me. This was an intentional flight. I paid $1500 for the ticket and even when another airline was going to fly me to catch the second leg they denied me. This was my worst experience, I have missed flights before and I get rebooked pay some fee but I still get to my destination. I missed an opportunity to pay last respect to my dad. I’m so very disappointed"
Cons: "The customer service is just horrible. They simply don’t care about you just what you paid."
Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"
Pros: "Upgraded to first class. Provided umbrellas for boarding. Changed our daughters' seat assignments so they could sit together. Nice breakfast."
Cons: "Rain during boarding"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy boarding. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Pros: "There was a crew member Dario, from Lima to Buenos Aires that was super nice."
Cons: "The ticket was printed as Avianca trans to American Airlines. That was wrong. The ticket was for Avianca and I went to American and I lost a lot of time. Then the line was long and took me for ever to check in"
Pros: "I didn't like at all. I will never fly with this airline ever again"
Cons: "Airline is run like a circus, horrible experience going to and from Cusco from Lima. I do not know how their poor employees work under such stressful conditions. Spend the extra money and fly LAN or LATAM."
Pros: "Poor customer service. Did not assist in is trying to get on another flight"
Cons: "Cost $250 with another airline they didn't assist at all and were very rude."
Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Pros: "Flight was oversold so they upgraded us to first class at no charge"
Pros: "Good entertainment set up"
Cons: "Gross smelly bathrooms, only vegetarian meal options"
Pros: "It was quick and we had a smooth landing...."
Cons: "Upon arriving in Lima, Avianca 808 passengers became aware that none (zero, nada) of the bags were loaded onto the plane in Cusco. The customer service response to this airline error was sub-par. Passengers were told that the baggage issue was "weather-related", which is ludicrous even if the weather both in origin and destination had not been clear and sunny with no wind (it was). Info was taken on if passengers needed bags sent on to another destination or to a hotel but were told it would not get to Lima until the next morning (this was flight 808 landing just before 4 pm). Unclear why it couldn't be put on the next flight same day. And unclear what is happening to our bags now until the morning. No apology wasn't issued to passengers. Additionally we were delayed 15 mins due to "weather". I don't mind short delays but it was absolutely not weather-related. Weather is the default excuse to transfer fault away from themselves."
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "The agents and flight attendants were very unfriendly. You could tell that because I was of a different nationality that this was a problem."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Several of the seats were broken - not sure why they insist on everyone raising their seatbacks for security reasons while they continue to operate flights where customers can't raise their seats. Maybe this isn't that important after all? The plastic backs of the chairs has clearly been refinished but the finish has worne off or been etched with customer graffiti."
Pros: "Although we were in "Economy" class, it felt just like Business. Lots of space to stretch your legs, personal TV monitor on the back of each head rest (Including HBO!), and even though it was a short 1.5 hour flight we were served drinks and a meal."
Cons: "The meal was average to sub-par, but than again it was a short flight and a warm meal was actually a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "I reached the Lima airport an hour before domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. The lady in charge told me the gate was closed. I told her it was an hour before and i had valid tickets and she was not ready to listen to anything. Horrible service ! Who closes gates to a flight an hour before ?"
Cons: "Ran a little late."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Took forever To take off. Also a mix up happens with our seats & crew was unconcerned or helpful."
Pros: "The service was good and I love that there is a cracked bag included."
Cons: "The flight was delayed...if it was mechanical, no worries but there was another plane at our gate which make me think that mechanical was just an excuse."
Cons: "Our flight from Washington DC to Lima had a connection flight in Colombia. Since the flight from DC was delayed for more than an hour we ended up missing our connection flight from Colombia to Lima, Peru. And from there everything went downhill. In Colombia they crew didn't know what was going to happen to us. After waiting over 3 hours they finally told us the found an early morning flight for us and that they were going to accommodate us in an hotel in Colombia for to spend the night. we waited until midnight for the transportation to the hotel and there were another 100 persons waiting to get transportation to the hotel as well and to check inn in the hotel. disaster."
Cons: "The emergency exit row window seats are extremely uncomfortable. Seats don't recline and there is no arm rest along the wall. Also, there were no vegetarian options aboard and the flight attendants didn't make any effort to put together something I could eat."
Pros: "short flight, timeliness, great service!"
Cons: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Very quick flight and good service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour."
Pros: "Flights were on time and had excellent in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "No drink services are provided on these flights. Unsure if that's specific to our flights (we took 2 Avianca flights) or all domestic flights in general."
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Pros: "Flights were first class. I liked knowing the reputation of Avianca and that it is not known for cancelling flights. One of the best landings ever and in a challenging place!"
Cons: "The snack was basic, however it is a 1-hour flight"
Cons: "Their check in was ridiculously slow-15-20 min per person at times. How is that possible? The flight was said to be 90 min delayed. I asked about getting on another airline. They said no. Finally this 1 hour flight was 3 hours late to Lima & I missed my international flight. Never again Avianca."
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Pros: "The plane was almost empty and so I was able to rest comfortably."
Pros: "I liked the customer service from the employees trying to help everyone get situated from the flight cancellation."
Cons: "I didn't like how there was no communication from the airline that the flight was canceled and that we customers and employees at the Fresno airport. We should have received notification as soon as the flight was canceled so we don't have to spend all day at the airport thinking it's just a delay."
Pros: "Tuve 2 paradas antes de llegar a destino y realmente estaba asustada de que la maleta no llegará junto conmigo a destino pero lo hizo! Además todos los vuelos salieron a tiempo, todo funcionó muy sincronizado"
Cons: "La comida no me gusto tanto, aunque no estaba tan mal tampoco, quizás un menú para niños estaría bien que tuvieran."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "The Cusco airport was a mess! Long delay an changed the gate twice"
Pros: "The food was good for airline food. The exit rows do give you more leg room."
Cons: "However if you sit in an exit row or directly in front of one you cannot recline your seat. This is a big deal if it is an overnight flight like the one I had because it makes it very difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Very comfy seats, a lot of leg space."
Cons: "One hour delay"
Cons: "Ladies in the front desk are super RUDE yes I said super not just rude! I WILL NEVER book with American Airlines again. Worst customer service I have ever encountered. When I left from Fresno onto when I left from Pheonix!"
Pros: "The service was good. Headrests were nice, recliner had good range."
Cons: "Would have paid more $ for more space, but not willing to pay first class ticket price $$$. Elbow room could always be improved."
Pros: "CREW AND ONBOARD FOOD MADE THE DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES SERVISING SAME AMOUNT OF FLIGHT HOURS."
Cons: "BUT ENTERTAINMENT WAS TERRIBLE FOR A NEARLY 5 HOURS FLIGHT NOT TO HAVE SCREEN ON EACH SEAT WAS A DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE. WHEN WE FLEW FROM BOGOTA TO PUJ PLANE HAD SEAT SCREENS AND WAS GREAT SERVICE."
Pros: "Competent flight attendants and modern airplane."
Cons: "My flight from Lima to Cusco was overbooked, so they bumped me to the next flight, which was 5 hours later. As a token of apology, they offered me a free lunch from one of the cafes in the Lima airport. I got to the cafe, and I was able to pick between one of two boring sandwiches. I was more in the mood for a different one that was one nuevo sol more, but apparently that was not allowed with my coupon. So essentially, I got to spend eight hours in the airport for a measly sandwich that wasn't very good. And then my return flight from Cusco to Lima was delayed by over an hour, which was also not ideal (although nowhere near as bad as the original situation)."
Pros: "Crew were great, flight was enjoyable and scenery stunning, enjoyed the flight once we got going."
Cons: "Mix up at the boarding gate - allocated gate 4 and then moved to gate 1. Half hour delay due to reshuffle not good when someone is meeting you at the other end. Entertainment system not working so lucky no one sitting next to me so could then move and this system not functioning properly. Suggest that any changes are given with plenty of notice and loudly and/or on the screen at the departure gate - maybe this has to be negotiated with the Cusco airport. Broadcasts in Spanish are okay for those who speak it but English is lost when announcements are made."
Pros: "Speed check in"
Cons: "The kiosk didn't work and sent us to check-in from which they couldn't figure out why the tickets wouldn't work. There was only one attendant at the ticket counter for the entire airline. And finally when the problem was finally resolved we nearly missed the flight; despite being there nearly 2 hours early."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "The flight was late, i can not to watch the movie, the screen did not work sometimes. Furios stewardess."
Pros: "average service"
Cons: "they overbook the flight Santiago/Lima and we lost one day of our vacations."
Pros: "Crew quiet and professional"
Cons: "Screaming child boarded"
Cons: "Very little. This was very smooth work."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "FAT to LAX not one word from the flight deck explaining the delay in our delayed pushback and take off"
Pros: "People who help me with my 87 year old mother we extremely thoughtful."
Cons: "I did not like having to exit plane on the tarmac. It was difficult for my 87 year old mother, and the if the weather had been bad this would have been very unpleasant and extremely difficult for everyone!"
Pros: "Staff at Fresno Airport was helpful and informative."
Cons: "A six hour delay caused us to rent a car to drive from Fresno to LA. Once we were on our way and after 3 hours or so, the delay was reduced so that we theoretically could have made connections - but it was too late. We made it driving - but we had to eat the cost of the car rental."
Pros: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Cons: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Customer attention, they wanted 50.000 lb not a bit above otherwise is US$200!"
Pros: "We arrived early"
Cons: "Everything else. Over crowded. Very uncomfortable seats, no entertainment unless you wanted to download and pay for app which I did but didn't have earphones for my phone."
Pros: "Didn’t go"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there were no options to get to Cleveland timely so I cancelled the whole trip."
Pros: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Really rough ride, very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Plane delayed 3 1/2 hours. Got to my room at 1:15 am"
Cons: "Small seats small bathrooms hit my head on door just trying to go to the bathroom"
Cons: "Was not informed that there was a required 30 minute check in and was given incorrect information about what time the airport opened. Causing us to miss our flight and purchase new tickets at an extra $620, whereas I believe it should have been a free adjustment. I will never use united or kayak again."
Pros: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "How pleasant everyone was"
Pros: "We were late leaving Fresno we sat on the runway for 40 minutes and 100° we left Fresno to Denver so the plane from Denver had to wait for us"
Pros: "The Fresno staff was incredible, patient, and very helpful. Take-off and landing was super smooth."
Cons: "There was no food, only a glass of water. The steward was very kind though. The layover at LAX seemed unrealistic. When I called ahead of time about it, a United employee told me it was "do-able". We barely made it, even with riding on the skycap's cart. If I hadn't had that cart ride, I would definitely have missed it. Reasonable layovers would be more helpful."
Cons: "Staff was rude and not helpful at all. Delayed over 3 hours waiting on crew coming in on another plane. Short staffed."
Pros: "Horrible smell in the cabin, lavatory out of service"

I did not make the error! They had my Date of birth, my service dog traveling with me, and still were acting like they weren't going to check me in! Extremely stressful!!"
Pros: "Very friendly hostesses and Avery welcoming feel"
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight because of maintenance problems. Had to wait an extra 5 hours just to get to Las Vegas. BULLSHIT! Never again!!"
Cons: "Delayed flight caused me to miss my connection and caused numerous problems."

Pros: "The way they said "Hello" to me. Other than that, the water was good."
Cons: "Everything else. My flight was delayed for weather, and I missed my boarding by 2 MINUTES, and they rejected me at the gate, and told me my seat was already taken by stand-by. Then the lady I went to see at the customer service desk was rude, and rejected me from first class even though it was THEIR MISTAKE I was booked there. Then I didn't even land at LAX! I had to take another flight that landed at Ontario so I can make my appointment on time. Will NEVER travel with United again!"
Pros: "The crew overheard me offer my scarf to the lady next to me because I noticed that she was cold, and a few minutes later they offered her a blanket without us even asking for one. We were both so shocked that they knew what we needed before we asked for it."
Cons: "When i came back to my country everything was ok until i got my credit details and i saw that your receptionist stole money from my card. I should have pay for an exstra suitcase 60 dollars so i gave the receptionist my credit card. Yesterday I got my credit details i saw an extra charge of 400 hundred dollars !!! I am so mad and im waiting for you to cancel it and recompense. I hope it will be soon before i involve a layer and require you. My phone number is +97224518838."
Pros: "I liked the crew and the entertainment, though the touch screen went carzy at the end of the flight and I couldn't make it work adequately."
Cons: "The seats. They are definitely not comfortable for a long flight. They don't have enough cushion, so I had to use the pillow to sit on. The man next to me did the same. Also, the seats do not recline sufficiently, so it's almost impossible to sleep."
Pros: "I loved everything , I would fly with United airlines again , thank you so much."
Pros: "nothing my plane was canceled"
Cons: "that my trip was canceled"
Cons: "Failed to compensate my flights and hospitality. Not a better place to be stranded. Fresno, ca. Not impressed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and attempted to be helpful."
Cons: "Was delayed and missed my connection home. The hotel provided by United was dirty and run down. They gave me food vouchers for the hotel but the hotel did not have any food options. I was rescheduled on a flight home and was forced to sit in the row in front of the bathroom by the window. Likely the most cramped seat on the aircraft. I literally could not sit upright with out my head striking the wall. To top it all off they lost my bag. After hours of wrangling with the baggage folks it could not be located in their computer system at all. I was told they could only reimburse for $3,500. Needless to say I had some expensive camera equipment in my checked luggage and was not too excited about this reimbursement cap. By some miracle the bag ended up at my home destination. It was off in the corner of baggage claim. No tag on it, no one standing around it, no one knew anything about it. I just happen to walk by it on my way out of the airport. Horrible experience. I think I’ll stick with the other airlines in the future."
Pros: "Done with United! Will never fly them again. Every flight is overbooked. Just a matter of time before you get screwed."
Pros: "Danny the crew member"
Cons: "Our pilot called in sick and the airline had no back up. It delayed our flight 1 hour and 20 minutes, which made us miss our connecting flight. We stayed in the airport 10 hours to get a flight out to Portland. Whole day of vacation ruined."
