Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The social distancing was not followed and the seats were not very big so I had a person sitting darn near on top of me. Fortunately the guy next to me asked to move but until that point the crew did not really care."
Cons: "I think all was very good"
Pros: "Everything was GREAT !!"
Pros: "Lift off and landing was excellent"

Cons: "Food really bad on both segments."
Pros: "Was ultimately seated in Comfort+ even though I had an Economy ticket."
Cons: "Seat assignment with Economy ticket. More than willing to be asked to move for family seating, etc. Just feels nicer knowing you have an actual seat."

Pros: "No carry on fee, comfortable seat and pitch"
Cons: "Displays for zone boarding status would be helpful"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, arrived early..crew was prompt and courteous."
Pros: "The plane was very new and clean; entertainment options and food were very good; it was a good flight."

Pros: "See Below.. Inflight WiFi Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed hour due to missing crew. Boarding involved a bus taking to stairs-only-access tiny plane, in pouring down rain. Grumpy flight attendant. All Carryons taken. Ran out of snacks and beverage service."

Pros: "Crew members were all very friendly and made the flight a nice trip as best they could."
Cons: "It would make a lot more sense for people to board from the back and window seats first so that we are not climbing over each other to get to our tiny seats."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight. The flight attendants were very pleasant & efficient. They only served snacks on this short flight but were very good at ensuring everyone had at least one or more beverages.

Cons: "Delayed for no reason"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Pros: "Service and staff"
Pros: "Nice plane, smooth flight, flight was on time in spite of the disaster in Houston."
Cons: "Well, even United brings a tray of waters on the short flight from Portland to Redmond. Hard to believe it was impossible to serve some drinks on this 1 hour fairly empty flight from Seattle. Also, when taking off the plane surged and slowed several times. I had to wonder if the pilot was in training?"
Pros: "Smooth, easy, still long"
Cons: "Still long"
Pros: "We purchased economy tickets in Delta. With these tickets you don't know where you are sitting until you get to the airport. Well, we lucked out and got the Plus seats! We got free alcoholic drinks, and big plush seats! We left right on time and got there early! Overall a great experience!"
Pros: "Business as usual and we actually arrived abit earlier than projected. Cudos to the pilot and crew."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."
Pros: "Wheeler chair service is available"
Cons: "Gate changed in the last minute and non-English speaking wheeler chair customer (my 89 years old mother) was left at the old gate by their wheeler chair services and no agent at the gate knew about her. Both round trip flights! This is totally NOT acceptable. She could have been lost and with no ability to help herself and miss the flights. It was lucky that she found Chinese speaking customers to help her."
Pros: "Good heads up to turbulence."
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."

Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "In a 6h flight, they only served drinks once. I saw the crew member once with a tray of glasses with water, but he ran out before getting to our seat and never came back. I was glad I hadn't finished a bottled water I had purchased earlier at the airport."

Pros: "Uneventful as it should be!"
Cons: "Non functioning personal lights for reading etc."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "Terrible service from crew. Bad odors from bathrooms."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Upon arriving to the gate we were delayed 15 min. As the last few people were boarding the gate agents announced there was not more overhead space and we would have to check all bags from now on. I’ve seen this done before but I was very irritated because it seemed as if the gate agents were a little rough with the newly checked bags. As I felt like I didn’t have a choice I checked my bag reluctantly knowing I had a gift for a friend inside and continued boarding. As I boarded I was highly irritated to see more than 5 available overhead spaces for carry ons. I asked the steward why they made us check bags when there was still space and she barely stopped to answer and just said they have a monitor up front that tells them when it’s full. Clearly the monitor was wrong and common sense would lead me to at least take a look before LYING to paying customers. I was very hurt to see the gift I had just bought for my friend was broken when I opened my bag at baggage claim."
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: "Seats, flight ride."
Cons: "I booked two seats for my girlfriend and I and were given two window seats. Bogged early enough so should have put seats together. Now knowing I needed the app installed on my phone to watch entertainment, and not having wifi to download. The AC vents are a bit too soft."
Pros: "We got home early"
Cons: "The sandwich was auwful"
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"
Cons: "Crew didn't walk around to offer wanter/drinks except during meal time and it would have been nice if they did."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"

It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."

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!"
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Offer to send the carry on for free at the gate."

Cons: "Staff never smiled or even said hello. May be culture but better training is needed."
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Pros: "Comfort and quick boarding"
Cons: "Flight attendants were a bit dry and less than over zealous. Connecting gate in Charlotte was really far from where we landed. I had little time to get there."
Cons: "My flight was actually processed under American Airlines. Oddly, the confirmation email stated it was Finnair."
Cons: "Got charged to check in 1 luggage. $ 50 roundtrip added extra to my plane ticket cost, it used to be free .I will not use this airline again,now I know your fees."

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: "Crew, entertainment, on time"
Cons: "The people were rude, the food was mediocre."
Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour delay and they had us run to two different gates. The plane didn't take off for another half hour or so"
