Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."
Cons: "Flight crew was very rude and seems she was not happy to attend customers request."
Cons: "Poor crowd control in airport- monitor did not show gate even 20 minutes before the flight after the gate changed , then it changed 3 different times. Few Avianca staff available to answer questions/clear up the confusion. It was actually comical. On the previous flight Lima-> Cusco, they bumped us off our flight even with confirmed tickets, said the "flight was full" (obviously oversold) and said we'd get a $50 voucher and asked me to write my email on a piece of scrap paper, no receipt."
Cons: "This flight was operated by Avianca, the flight was delayed 2 hours at the beginning, they said they will give as a voucher for food while we wait, when I went to the counter they said they don't give anything for a 2 hours delay. Then the flight was delayed a 1/2 hour extra, it was not even announced and we ended up boarding at 12:15am from a flight that was supposed to leave at 9:35pm, then the plane was waiting for 1/2 hour before we went abroad and I ended up arriving at 2am to my destination when I was supposed to arrive at 10:45pm, this was the worst fight experience and we didn't even got an apology for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Todo bien"
Cons: "Crew not that friendly towards everyone."
Pros: "Las aeromosas muy amables y profesionales."
Cons: "Los asientos incómodos que no funcionaban el cambio de posición. El pago de sobrepeso escandalozo; por 10 Libras $160 más extra fees...."
Pros: "It was largely an uneventful flight. The point was that they did their part getting us to the destination. It was a good flight."
Cons: "We did not use the entertainment system as it did not have any English subtitled movies so we did not use it."
Cons: "a little delay in the departure connection flight ."
Pros: "Nothing... did not end up taking the flight as when we got to the airport to check in they told us that they overbooked and we had to take a flight the next morning. They did offer to put us up in a hotel and pay for the taxi to and from but we were not pleased. We needed to get to our destination that night so we had to buy tickets on another airline."

Pros: "The only good part was that I had no one sitting next to me"
Cons: "We had a 8 hour delay in Lima and the customer service was terrible. I did not know what was going on for hours on end and they keep giving all the passengers the loop around. I work in the hospitality industry and this isn't the way to treat your paying customers"

Pros: "Snack and beverage provided. Good service, comfortable seats, ample cabin and overhead space."
Cons: "Slightly delayed both ways. Lost around 2 hours total time, but not substantial for me."
Cons: "Our 10:40AM flight got cancelled. We had to wait in line until 1AM with regular check-ins to rebook for 8:40AM. When we made it to the airport again after limited sleep, that flight also got cancelled. We bought a ticket with LATAM which was a breeze. Throughout the following week, we tried calling them numerous times to have them tell us we had to loose yet more time by having to go to their Cusco office... but they couldn't resolve the issue either. We had to escalate this over the phone from their office so they would issue us a flight back to Lima at no charge to us. Now, I can only hope that they will honor this ticket but I'm not expecting much."
Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."

Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."

Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."

Pros: "Scenery is awesome: various mountains, including snowy peaks, up close. Great views of Lima and Cusco from high above."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, but surprisingly made a good time, just slightly late in Cusco."
Cons: "The man sitting next to me had too much BO used much of my space."
Cons: "They didn't let him to aboard, because of a mistake on the name. I called to ask for help to fix the name and the person who answer me asked me for a numeric code and I didn't know where to find it. He was very rude, didn't help at lot guiding me where I can find it, but instead he said " You have to call back when you find it" I asked him that I couldn't find it and he almost yelled at me saying DID YOU GOT a RESERVATION OR NOT?. I never found the numeric code he asked for. So I called again and fortunately somebody else answer my call and she was a litTle more helpful and didn't made me waste my time with a numeric code. She asked me for the Trip ID # and I found it right away. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I LOST 700 DOLLARS. I HAD TO BUY ANOTHER PLAIN TICKET!!!!!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I got same thing pretzel very salty"
Pros: "I love how each seat had a private entertainment center, complete with a remote for a selection of games. I also love being fed a real meal while in flight and not having to pay extra for it. The service is fantastic as well!"
Cons: "I'm 6ft 2in with long legs, so I do not enjoy it when the seat in front of me remains in the reclining position for the entire flight. The head rest is, also, low. Comes down to my shoulders and does very little for my head. Other than that, which the airline cannot help, I really enjoyed flying on Avianca!"
Pros: "It was a short flight. It was on time and very easy to board and deplane."
Pros: "Once we got around to actually boarding and being on the plane, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the plane and company were. Every experience up to that point had led me to believe we were on the budget airline with the delays and the way everything was handled (getting us into the bus to go to the plane, waiting 15 minutes, getting us off to wait in lobby 40 minutes, boarding again)."
Cons: "Lots of delay with little explanation. All in all, it was nearly 3 hours later by the time we took off for an otherwise very short flight."
Cons: "missed flight, rude service no central customer service desk at airport"
