Pros: "Got first class upgraded. Very nice service!"
Cons: "We left 8am from JFK. Wish the crew had mentioned the 30 minutes waiting time to take off, given the 15?planes in front of us in line to do the same. I was very much needing to use the restroom about 15 minutes into it! I was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."

Pros: "I got to fly where I needed to go."
Cons: "The vents above my entire row of seats did not work, meaning there was never any air coming out even when they were fully open. This made for a long, hot, claustrophobic ride. The flight attendants seemed first disbelieving and later unconcerned that no air came out of our vents. I doubt they even reported them as broken after the flight. Delta's new boarding process is absolute chaos. More than half the plane had no seats assigned until 20 minutes before boarding, and the seats were displayed on a screen a good 25 feet away from the gate, meaning people had to constantly walk back and forth between the doorway and the screen. The gate agents were clearly overwhelmed. If this is how Delta is organized now, I won't be flying on them again."
Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"

Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."

Cons: "Not a fan of having "final boarding call" announced to run to the gate, only to sit on the plane at the gate for 30 min because of a scheduled delay at my destination. I know the flight wasn't very full, but that cost me an opportunity to eat dinner. I had to cancel a fast food order because I thought I'd miss my flight!"
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"
Pros: "The customer service of the gate attendants and flight crew was fantastic."

Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."

Pros: "Crew good, disembarking slow."
Cons: "A drink and/or snack."
Cons: "Nothing. All excelent"
Cons: "Paid extra to upgrade. Then never saw the flight crew during the flight. And they provided no drink or snack service. Instead they all huddled at the front of the plane and talked with each other. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "Flight staff, food, seating, Personnal space, restrooms were clean, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Checking in at the counter and boarding the aircraft can use some polishing. The boarding process is confusing due to lack of communication to customers and faulty speaker/PA systems at LATAM gates."

Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."

The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the crew was courteous."

Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Pros: "Everything. The while team was friendly, from check in on the ground all the way into the air."
Pros: "New plane .confort. Reliable company.good prices."
Cons: "Need to check size and weight of the carry on luggage at the register counter in the airport and not before boarding. Create confusion, lost of time. Boarding process is messy. Indications given to board by group number but it is not enforced and it is a real mess .food does not compare well with other companies.lunch is acceptable but snack(sandwich)and light supper are really awfull.entertainment system not a big choice of moovies"
Cons: "Latam The website of Latam is useless. The services for people in broadcoast is so difficult that almost impossible (email, facebook, telephone, etc) In my case, i was in Africa and couldn´t change my ticket. My brother had to change it from Argentina."

Cons: "There need to be vegetarian options for meals"
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"

Pros: "the take off and landing were good"
Cons: "Because we didn't know Spanish, we were confused as to which line we should board for the flight. After waiting for 15 minutes in the line, we were told we should have been on another line. there were alot of english-speaking persons on the plane and it would have been good to make announcements in english also."

Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."

Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "The flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Even though there were 4 seats across, the rows were too close together and there was absolutely no space at the back by the toilet. The last 3 overhead bins were non-existent for passengers (being taken up with flight equipment). Extremely uncomfortable plane!"

Cons: "Dancing clowns? Overall it was a nice and pleasant flight"
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Tried to cancel the flight because of an emergency but American only wants money."

Pros: "After couple or three hours the seat get to be a pain on the tailbone. Also I am 6'2" so already a bit of squeeze. Can't stretch out legs. Was an Airbus 319"

Pros: "787 Airplane is nice, very modern. Early Departure Early Arrival. Very smooth Flight. In Flight Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "There was hardly any food and no offering of coffee or variety of beverages on this International 10+ hour flight. Seats were small and not very comfortable. On arrival nobody seemed to know which terminal exit family should meet us at, and LAX "information" said they know nothing about what AA does. Unfortunately LAX is just a terrible airport for arrival or departures. But AA needs to show more clearly where family should wait to pick up arriving internal passengers."
Pros: "Flight was okay."
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with zero notice and I almost ended up on a 18 hour layover which would have resulted me in missing work. The staff was very unsympathetic and not helpful. There were 10 people behind the counter and nobody could help us. They were all just spacing out. Ultimately, I was placed on the flight, but had to rush to every single one of my four connecting flights. I am a frequent traveler but this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. Avianca should be embarrassed to be associated with star alliances."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."

Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "Flight network sent an incorrect name to the airline and i had to go under so much trouble the day before just to correct itz"
Pros: "Everything but the boarding."
Cons: "The boarding seemed to take forever. The crew could’ve performed the boarding process while getting the people who were waiting for upgrades at the same time. Splitting work could’ve worked and to not let all of us wait."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane was too old. It is shameful. Avianca should stop using this plane"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"

Pros: "Very smooth. Outstanding A-321 platform."
Cons: "No place to plug in my dying phone. All Group 7-9s had to check bags. This is unacceptable. Had to wait on connecting passengers (didn't know the airlines did that anymore). I am tired and have to go to work at my usual time since the flight landed late."

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Cons: "I paid premium price for comfort and to be treated at least nice! In the business cabinet! Other than the seat which by the way mine was broken so I couldn't get to the position I'm the most comfortable, everything else I could have gotten in the economy seat. Crew was not welcoming, the had big attitudes as they were doing me favors! Which they are not! And they didn't check at me at all. Fly got delayed more than 2 hours didn't offer more drinks or snacks! Food was horrible so I was very hungry since I couldn't eat it! And the snacks were available at the back much later but when I went to check it out almost everything was gone! Other airlines come to offer you snacks! AA did not and the make me feel like an intruder when I went to check the empty snacks trays! Only the package food was still available. Horrible service, mean big headed crew! It's is simple! Be nice and make an effort! Especially for the people that actually is there paying the premium!"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Pros: "There was a lot of extra room on the flight so it was comfortable. The meals were tasty. I was glad they gave us a few snacks in addition to the main meal and the dinner snack with the tart and the sponge taper very good."
Cons: "The monitors were very difficult to use. I had to press them multiple times to change the screen"
Pros: "In seat entertainment screen and USB charger. The chicken salad"
Cons: "Flight crew were rude, wasn't sitting next to my partner on the same booking for both flights. Had to pay for wine, they couldn't even give just one complimentary wine with dinner. Dinner was bad except the small chicken salad was good"
Pros: "Great service. With FOOD!!! Real Food! The entertainment system was great ( I played most of the flight) On time!"
Pros: "Food was goof"

Cons: "El vuelo lo operaba American Airlines y no parecía una línea con alianza de vuelo ..chek-in automatizado no apareció mi boarding así que hacer fila para resolver..afortunadamente lo hicieron de una."
Cons: "Itthe ground staff (red coat agents) at MIA extremely unhelpful and arrogant. I am visually impaired, asked for assistance to check luggage, asked for assistance and was simply tol to go to end of the line at a counter that was at least fifty yards away. Upon my. O planning of the lack of service as simply to go talk to the manager."
Pros: "Great food and headphones"
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Pros: "The normal stuff was fine"
Cons: "My AA connecting flight was not held. When the other connecting flight was discussed, I thought to myself why don't they bring up mine? They could have told me right then. I ran as fast I could just be told that they closed the door . I figured out that I missed it by 3 minutes. The plane was still loading cargo. I will avoid AA from now on, philly is hub and they could not find 3 minutes for multiple passengers..."
