Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."

Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."

I had to pay $50 fee with Jet Blue because Avianca didn't advise of the delay, and my only option home was 10 hours later in the day. I cancelled Jet Blue flight and bought another ticket home. No service between airlines who are not in the same alliance. Travelers beware!"

Cons: "Best foot"
Pros: "Always on time and Great Plains"
Cons: "The temperature throughout the flight was very high and humid almost like they AC wasn't working at all made it very uncomfortable to stand 5.5 hours on a plane. When asked for something to drink due to circumstances was told I had to wait until it was smack time"
Pros: "I'm very dissapointed with avianca specially.now that I have a few trips coming up. When I was at the airport I asked the clerked for specific information ,I asked him how much it would cost to take my surfboards if it was going to be to expensive I would just leave them home ,he said no problem that there would be a charge of.$120_150 and it cover the trip until denpasar ,I asked are you sure?he said YES that he would put it on the note and that if I had any problems in NY to just show them the receipt well no need to say.that.when I arrived in NY I was charged again ,the cs rep of the other airline said they wouldn't have charged if avuanca would have put that the surfboard was going until denpasanr when we said that he had done it we looked stupid because he had just checked our bags on the tag until Bali but not the surfboard. So now I have to return and I'm working if I will have.to.end up paying.$1000 in.total.just for my surfboard.when this could have been avoided from the start if the cs rep of Avianca would have told.me the truth or know how to do his Job. What solution can you give ,I feel very annoyed. Thank you"

Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "This is my second Avianca flight. Both times the flights were not full, yet both times my seat was in front of an exit row so I could not recline. A red eye overnight flight while sitting up perfectly straight is horribly uncomfortable. I do not understand why I was placed in this seat when there were other available options. This should be communicated to the customer when placing him in that seat, and a discount should be provided. I am requesting a partial refund, very unnecessarily uncomfortable flight. Thank you."
Pros: "Kind and respectful personnel"
Cons: "I was asked to be at the La Paz airport 3 hr before international flight, so did I, only to see the check in open 1.5 hours before the flight, more consistency needed"
Cons: "Business class not worth it at all. Seats don't recline and there is next to no separation from main cabin with its crying babies."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. A good number of shows, movies and music choices were offered free of charge. Food was good but the portion was not enough. It felt like a I was served a happy meal."
Cons: "The crew members seemed a little unhappy. They were just doing what they had to do, no smiles or nice comments. food portions were extremely small, and it would help if they offered a second drink after dinner, perhaps even just water, coffee or tea."
Pros: "in terms of comfort, i really appreciated what avianca offered. it was a much more modernly designed plane, with a wide variety of inflight entertainment, usb outlets,, and generally comfortable seats. the crew was also very polite and professional."
Cons: "they refused to offer me a vegan meal because i purchased my flight ticket from a third party vendor [ie, kayak]. i think thats bullshit, and pretty sad because otherwise avianca was great."

Pros: "The flight was in scheduled"
Cons: "There was ONE crew member from Avianca welcoming passengers as soon as you got there, but this person disappeared after he got the forms filled out ... I didn't know who to ask about the vip room because there was no one from Avianca around so I had to spend my 2 hours sitting in the waiting room without wifi and been Cold and hangry when I as a executive class passenger was able to have access to the VIP room . That I didn't like . Also, when we were boarding the plane there was another plane for the same gate that we were boarding passengers, too ... In another words I didn't like that airport . I'll make sure never again if I can to go through la Paz, Bolivia."
Pros: "I have not being able to complete th trip from Bogota to NY, because the airline has given me a lot of trouble with my reservation. Since the original return day was 12/31 few hours before new year's celebration the staff at the airport was simply rude and unprofessional to treat the clients. In a hurry to leave their job they just didnt want to help not only me but a few other passangers with different issues."

Cons: "When my husband and I arrived to Lima airport 2,5 hours before our scheduled flight, we could not check in because flight was overbooked? There was a seat for one of us (we overheard same conversation at counter next to our - 2 passengers, one available seat)... Explanation was they had technical problems with original plane and they had to replace it with smaller one and everybody else used online checkin in last 48 hours...Everybody else used online checkin?! Is that the rule? Last 48 h of my trip in Peru i did not have internet access, but if it's the only way to get your seat, you paid for months in advance, then I would find some solution. At the end, staying persistent in our request,we were on the scheduled flight (some "miracle" happened and we got 2 seats, next to each other, as same as couple from counter next to us)"

Cons: "Customer service was not friendly or helpful in any way shape or form. not concerned for its guests or empathetic. the only thing that came across was that they sincerely didn't care even to make the airline more $$ in selling an upgrade of seats!"
Pros: "The attention was good. The air attendants were quite nice. For booking my meals I had a problem with the Call center and they left me waiting for 15 minutes until I had to hang. But then I contacted the Facebook page and I received an immediate response so everything was Ok."
Cons: "The plane on the first flight was quite old and the entertainment console was obsolete. The plane for the return flight was a new one, vey nice but the seats were hard and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I flew business on the new airplane the Dreamliner. The experience was overall good. Very comfy plane. Slept like a baby. The food was the only bad thing I skipped both meals as it tasted like airplane food or frozen food out of a box."
Cons: "Boarding process was a mess. Not a smooth process at all."
Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service and food in couch was amazingly the best I had in a long time. The entertainment was delightful. The telephone service for questions, while in Peru, was terrible. My flight reservation number was changed and I needed to talk to someone. I had to call the States help line instead of the local number which had a non working automated answering menu."
Pros: "We were lucky enough to have a flight on a new plane. It was in good condition, clean, and had plenty of entertainment options. I was able to charge my phone and the meal was good. my favorite thing was that I was able to check a bag for free!!"
Pros: "Everything. The while team was friendly, from check in on the ground all the way into the air."
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"
Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"
Pros: "The onboard crew was great."

Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice. The plane was extremely new."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"
Pros: "Plane was nice, good entertainment, good onboard staff. Very cool looking interior plane, and service"
Cons: "HORRIBLE pre flight, and in airport staff. Incompetent, zero clue as to handle a delayed flight forced every passenger to hand over passports into communal plastic bags and took them for 2 hours somewhere in the airport unknown to us. I should never have to give up my passport into plastic bags/strangers EVER. They lost my customs paper, and then proceeded to accuse me of "selling it"--They took it after I passed through customs initially and if they put it back in passport after they threw them all in plastic bags- god knows where it is, or who's hands it was in who may have took it. They would not give us food vouchers, or water. They couldn't figure out how to get buses and hotel rooms for people- basic simple business skills-- add number of passengers going to hotel, calculate number of seats per bus and that will get you the number of buses needed--- they couldn't figure that out. I will call and give more detail, I promise."
Cons: "Friendly staff. Took great care of my grandma"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "We had an hour delay and 15 minutes since we land to go out of the pkain"
Pros: "Great flight to Peru from NYC on Latam. Comfortable, clean and service was great. I would fly again on this airline."
Cons: "Staff spoke limited English which was a bit of a surprise on a US flight."
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest seats I've ever say in and I felt claustrophobic. Checking into this flight was a disaster and impossible. Tam would redirect me to Tam airlines and Lan would redirect me to Lan. The Lan customer service was unable to get into the Tam airlines flight so we emded up with the most awful chairs in the airline. I wish they would fix their website so checkin isn't as frustrating as it was for me. I understand the airlines merged but if each airline is unable to access eachothers flight then how exactly did you merge? ALSO when we got off the first flighy to connect in this one they gave us no explanation until 20min later to where we should commect to this flight. They MADE US WALK A 20min WALK TO ANOTHER TERMINAL WITH ALL OUR BAGS. It was awful. If your gonna need people to walk to another terminal the least you can do is supply a shuttle."
Pros: "Boarding was made extremely easy for the tired, seniors, and people with children."
Cons: "The crudeness of some of the Air Hostesses was appalling. The food was unpalatable and no tolerance for people who were lactose intolerant. Narrow aisles, so going to the dirty toilets needed ingenuity!"
Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."
Pros: "I loved the attention and courtesy of the crew through my flight. They gave a welcoming greeting and they flight was pleasant due to the whole crew"
Cons: "On the flights I looked for a news radio or a news short clips, but I didn't see nothing of that. It would have been amazing and great to know what's going on in the country and final destination"
Pros: "The attention and the entertaining of the flight"
Cons: "I didn't have a wi-fi access in the plane, it would have been amazing and great to comunicate with family and friends that my flight was little delayed due to air traffic. The last thing I didn't like was the super delayed luggage delivery, because I had no energy to wait an appalling 40 minutes after a long flight."
Pros: "crew and cleanliness"
Cons: "Uncomfortable spacing of seats on short flights a nightmare on long hauls. Have to assume the distance between seat and seatback ahead is now a safety issue should an emergency evac. be necessary. Had to argue over an imposed seat change despite holding a 2 hour old agent issued boarding pass. Gate agent plainly lied in claiming an equipment change was making it necessary. At start of trip (1/14), not allowed to board connection and suffered an additional 5hr. layover delay due to baggage transfer problem. No compensation of any type graciously offered for any of the inconveniences."
Pros: "A business class upgrade, lay flat bed, very comfortable. Overall wonderful, made me want to take this flight every time I travel to Chile for business."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive compared to other business class flights I've been on, especially Delta. Seemed a little rushed, felt as if I wasn't able to enjoy the business class amenities."
Pros: "The airline was very clean. The attendants were very nice. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Because I did not buy the ticket straight from Lan Airlines , Lan postpone my Fly too many days later. I had a meeting that I was supposed to go and I couldn't make it."
Pros: "We knew that this sector was operated by AA and we did not have high expectations. No complains, just ok"
Cons: "First the check in process at Santiago airport was two hours long. They were totally understaffed and I believe they were dealing with problems of overbooking flights. The last hour in line was spent while in the front of the line while people from the back were being called ahead to check in because they were on other flights even though those flights were hours away. Secondly I preichecked in online the day before, chose a window seat, and when I checked in at the airport I was assigned a seat that did not match what I had chosen, which was also next to my partner I was flying with. There was no explanation until the gate at which point they said they changed planes and randomly reshuffled everyone's seats, after a call to the airline the customer service representative could not explain why anyone would ever say they "randomly reshuffled." The plane was overbooked so they could not accommodate my request to sit next to my partner. Finally at no point was there a warning about bringing water bought in the airport onto the plane (after security) but only upon boarding did they take the water away, some notice would have been helpful and saved a bunch of waste and money."
Pros: "The service was good and the crew was very kind."
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed. The've lost my luggage and never contacted me."
