Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They left all my bags in Miami, i dont know when im going to get them, this is not aceptable"

Pros: "Nothing. And I've flown Avianca 4 times and tried giving it a chance."
Cons: "There is always some sort of problem. When I was in San Pedro they said the flight was delayed, then it never came. They did accommodate me with a hotel for the night which was nice after almost losing my job. The last and final time I used this airline I was at JFK 2 hours and 45 minutes ahead of time. I was there at 11:45 for a 2:20 flight. They told me I had missed my flight because I wasn't there 3 hours early. No where on my ticket did it say anything about that. There was a lot of people complaining and then they told me since I "missed' my flight I had to by a new ticket on the spot, leaving me with no option and a heafty fee."

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."

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: "Crew was the best I have had in 2019 on Delta, the only good crew."

Aisle was barely longer across than my foot, and the guy next to me was a bit bigger than average, leaving me to have to scrunch in my seat the whole flight. Lots of elbows, butts and hips knocking into my shoulders as people boarded."

Pros: "The staff & crew were friendly. I liked having access to free entertainment. I liked being able to see the tracking of my checked bag (notifications)."

They lied to us saying that they were going to give vouchers for hotel, that we were going to be automatically booked for next flight and that our bags would arrive with our flight. Waited 7hs to talk to an agent in the airport. 24h wait in Atlanta had to sleep in airport. They wanted me to wait three days in atlanta. They forced me to check a carry on because they didn't have room in the plane. They told me my bag would arrive with my flight. It never did. I still dont have by only bag. Unbelievable."

Cons: "turbulance"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I don't get it.. why airlines have no pride? Tickets are expensive! Fuel is lately cheap.. a Don't get it.. why do they keep crying and act like poor helpless companies? You are connecting 2 major cities in the US... can you please have some pride and offer a Nice airplane and not a crappy old one? Can you have some service going beyond just a soda? It doesn't make sense! When you fly in Europe with any major airline company (not low cost..), no matter how long or short the flight is, minimum you get a sandwich and abundance of drinks.. not with Delta (or any other american airline company).. pontless. We always get treated like cattle.. but they like keeping the prices of tickets expensive, don't they???"

Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."

Pros: "Rebooked to Atlanta because of a delay."
Cons: "Delta notifications and Kayak notifications were giving me conflicting information, however once I arrived at the Houston airport a Delta representative clarified my issues."

Pros: "When we were landing!!!!"
Cons: "To crowded, seats to to!!! close need personal space not everyone baths!!##!!"

Pros: "Got me to where I was going on time"
Cons: "Only one crew member, she couldn't drive the cart center of the aisle and kept running it into people... Only food was a small bag of pretzels and a cup of soda to drink not an entire can like other airlines. Plane was packed full."

Pros: "Economy is always Economy and I got what I paid for therefore I am satisfied with that fact. In addition we were on time."
Cons: "All was well with the Airline and British Airways met all the safety protocol, I expected. The booking with Kayak was made online. I had questions after the booking, I called. The representatives were very helpful,. professional and courteous. Thank you."

Pros: "The crew were great but the entrainment socket on my seat was broken so I couldn’t watch anything"
Cons: "Making sure everything works properly"

Pros: "Crew were excellent, seats were relatively comfortable and in flight entertainment was great."
Cons: "The plane was old and dirty. It really needed a good clean as there was food debris on my seat belt buckle and sticky finger prints all over my screen. Additionally, the connection time at LHR was too short. While we made the flight (having to run) but our bags did not, which was an annoyance."

Pros: "Friendly staff, good food, comfy seats, clean plane"
Cons: "The lights broke on the plane so we all had to sleep with the lights on. That was the only negative."

Pros: "Over all good means.........., All well nothing to my dislike"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "To be honest, I liked that some of the flight attendants were friendly. Honestly, all but Nicola were nice and friendly. Nicola was the only rude one. So rude that I took note of her name for such a review like this :). I also liked that we got to our destination safely."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 3 hours total. The first 45 minutes we were in the airport and they said they were delayed because of an engineering issue which was fine. They then stated that they resolved it and had us board the plane.... ten minutes later the pilot states that the same engineering issue is still being worked on and it'll be about another ten minutes. Well... TWO HOURS after being trapped on the plane and told repeatedly "it'll be another 10-15 minutes" ,we finally took off. The food was subpar, most of the airline staff was polite save for one gentleman at the gate who made a sarcastic comment to me about them trying to board quickly when I couldn't find my passport (after making us wait 45 minutes... then another 2 hours... yeah board quickly for what?). And the flight attendant Nicola was incredibly rude and appeared to condescend to some passengers in various ways. That 3 hour delay ended up costing me my connecting flight and I was booked on an overcrowded flight leaving 4 hours later and that was also delayed almost another hour (surprise!). My first day of vacation, I basically lost my whole first day as I arrived 8 hours after I was meant to because of delays by B.A."

Pros: "The staff was kind"
Cons: "Too many people"

Pros: "The Airbus was a real nice ride, with a great entertainment choices."
Cons: "The only thing was the two hour delay getting out of Heathrow. But that was for safety reasons, a bag had been loaded that shouldn't have been."

Cons: "I did not like a lot of things, overall impression was very disappointing compared to a few years ago. I will NOT recommend BA to anyone."

Pros: "We liked the Economy Plus amenities lovely service from all staff"
Cons: "Heath row. Was very disorganized"

Pros: "The only positive is that you don't have to worry about missing your flight due to the fact LHR isn't in the Schengen zone so there's no hangup at passport control during your connection."
Cons: "From check-in to flight attendants snotty attitude and a bunch of control freaks. Service and amenities inferior to other airlines."

Pros: "The crew was kind and patient."
Cons: "British Airways issued me and several others faulty boarding passes so I could not get through security and had to wait over 6 hours for the ticket counter to open so they could print me a whole boarding pass with a new barcode (I tried calling and they just told me to wait for the ticket counter to open). The emails they sent me with my tickets were all different and confusing, sending to different web pages to retrieve my boarding pass."

Pros: "Courteous and friendly staff"
Cons: "Outdated ife and unpleasant buzzing noise from the headphones"

Pros: "Timely."

Cons: "Missed the connection"

Pros: "Crew on the flight home was extremely friendly! Flights were all on time. Food service and drinks were very good. Great in flight entertainment options"
Cons: "Customer service personnel over the phone was so rude to me. Flight crew on the flight from dfw to lhr wasn’t friendly at all."

Cons: "My bags didn’t make it into this flight. Pathetic operations. Have to wait 24 hours for bag to come. Very inconvenient."

Cons: "Just the room and comfortableness of the economy class seating"

Pros: "Perfect landing"
Cons: "Not enough food in a meal"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "It was awesome how the windows are tinted and you can sometimes control it, and the new TV things on the back of every seat are truly amazing!"
Cons: "WHY is there no dairy free food?! I'm vegan but even for lactose intolerant people with more normal diets - there were absolutely no options! "meatballs and rice or pasta with a cheese sauce" - come ON! It's not that hard to make a vegetarian option that also happens to be dairy free!"

Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"

Cons: "I told the ground crew that I would prefer an aisle seat when I checked in, and she acknowledged my need. Yet, it turned out that I was given a window seat while there are vacant aisle seats on the plane."

Pros: "This flight was operated by British airways but the price with Finn Air was much cheaper."
Cons: "The cushion of my seat was not comfortable."

Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The there was not a legroom class (or bulkhead seat)that could be pre-specified. I do not really care about other extras extras for premium economy. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front."

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "I really liked that the crew were friendly, information was clearly communicated and process smooth."
Cons: "For a long flight the seats weren't that comfy and if it's an overnight I would suggest they let you know when food is coming or lights out so you can plan. Also, just a suggestion but I would prefer to pay less and not have the entertainment stuff or just use a BA app on my phone."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled due to hurricane Harvey."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "I didn't know that it's so complicated to reschedule a flight or return money! That was the worst part."

Pros: "There were no complications with my flight"
Cons: "Food is not so good, and the flight entertainment and amenities are not as good as other airlines."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and they gave enough food and water."
Cons: "We did on line check in, printed the tiket, and they decided to reprint it, and it never work, every time that we used this re-printed ticket doesn't work, we needed to call many time the staff, and in the baggage drop off constantly said that our baggage hast over weigth without weigth it, the scale said another thing, I have the impresion that they were pushing for extra-weigth pay."

Pros: "I could not have been happier with my flight to London."
Cons: "The flight back could not have had worse service. I paid for an upgrade and got none of the treatment I expected from the flight there."

Pros: "Check in, boarding were well organized. Crew and attendants at the airport were very friendly. My luggage was not lost."
Cons: "The flight from Houston was delayed, but Captain said that he will make up, and we should arrive to London on time. Only when we landed I learned that we are still late by an hour, and I missed my connection in London by a few minutes. Whoever was assigning a seat for me in Houston, could seat me closer to the front, so I would have a better chance to catch my connection. Instead, I was placed at the very last row. (Very uncomfortable by the way)."

Pros: "The staff and food option wasn't bad for plane food. We left and arrived on time. Theu kept us informed with what was happening with the turbulence."
Cons: "There were no usb chargers. The tiny screen had white scuffs all over so you couldn't see. The chairs were super cramped."

Pros: "The crew was great at taking care of everything"

Pros: "I flew economy. I was happy that I didn't feel tightly confined in my seat. I'm 5ft. 11 in. tall and had enough legroom so that me knees didn't get pressed up against the seat in front of me. I had the vegan meal and it was good! The staff on board were friendly and professional even when a customer a few rows ahead argued with them! They were able to hear the man out and resolve the problem amicably."

Pros: "Everything was good! Something to be said when here are no issues!"
Cons: "No issues."

Pros: "Wider isle and overhead space."
Cons: "TV screen difficult to see."

Pros: "Food and crew were nice. Smooth landing and take off."
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible. Very limited choices. Water dripped on me from the AC when landing. Headphone jack was nearly stripped out."

Pros: "Seats were a lil comfortable than the ones i have flown in before."
Cons: "Switched to a different plane because of delays. Was issued a ticket without getting an alert that i required a visa for italy, was detained and had to spend a night in an italian airport cell and deported the following day (not a honeymoon experience i was looking forward to)."

Pros: "Cabin crew was very good"
Cons: "Cabin temperature was a little warm."

Cons: "I missed my connecting flight because I got an email from kayak that the flight was an hour delayed. And it was not delayed."

Pros: "Everything was ok. Just OK. Decent meal - if small."
Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."

Pros: "Discreet and attentive customer service"
Cons: "Foot rest did not fully deploy. The remote for IFE was stuck I the cradle"

Pros: "Leg room was much better than in economy particularly for those of us over 6 feet tall. The food was quite good and better than what is normally served in Economy."
Cons: "Toilet facilities were in the economy cabin so there was no benefit to Premium Economy passengers - so much for a separate cabin as advertised. The seats weren't comfortable in fact normal economy seats are probably more comfortable. I was near one of the separating curtain as the cabin crew were often "bursting" through rather than pulling the curtain apart. Being on overnight flight it meant I got very little sleep let alone the children yelling and laughing loudly through the night - could the cabin crew say something! I had paid the extra for premium economy so I could do some work and get some sleep before I landed. I managed to do some work but got very little sleep."

Pros: "I loved the headrest on the seat. Easiest headrest for sleeping I have ever had. No neck rolling around. Especially important for long overnight flight. The recline on the seat was also lovely. For economy class, I slept amazingly well!"
Cons: "Food was ok, and seats were quite close together. I have status on another airline and usually fly in a premium economy seat. This was absolutely fine in a pinch, and I would do it again. But more room between seats would be nice."

Pros: "Straight forward boarding pretty good food and the flight crew was very professional"
Cons: "Still very cramped seating."

Pros: "We were traveling with a newborn and toddler. The crew and staff were very accommodating and helpful. They seated us in a row with an extra empty seat, refilled my daughter's bottle several times, and were friendly and kind to our kids. The entertainment options were great and the food was good, too."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable but this is the case with pretty much any economy seating on any flight."

Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."

Cons: "I feel cheated to get a "window" seat that lacked a window!"

Pros: "It wasn't Spirit."
Cons: "Missed our connecting flight due to mechanical issues, but we were put on a later flight. Due to covid it's hard to get really good customer service. It would be nice if American had said well in advance that you need their app in order to connect to wifi on the plane."

Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Pros: "Efficient"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was packed and wearing masks Was not enforced."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."

Cons: "Size of seat"

Cons: "2 hour delay"

Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "No"
