Cons: "It departed over an hour later"
Pros: "Generous food and beverage. No 1st checked luggage fee."
Cons: "My nonstop flight was anything but. At the San Jose Airport I got one boarding pass, and yet was told the flight was not direct when I inquired to confirm. I did not like that I had to offload some of my belongings out of my checked luggage. This was especially inconvenient as I had to deplane in Guatamala and go through their customs and security procedure all to get on the same plane 3 not so easy to get to gates over. And me with a broken toe, you can see how this would be not fun especially because I did not have any boarding pass or other information even telling me what gate I should be boarding at. It was really a small miracle that another passenger found someone to ask and I overheard the gate #. Stressful."
Pros: "Seats are comfy and having movies for the flight is nice."
Cons: "Food isn't great, but it's included free of charge."
Cons: "La compania que presta el servicio para ayudar a las personas en silla de ruedas, es pesimo. No tinen suficiente personal y una sola persona tiene que transportas cuatro y cinco personas al tiempo . Lo que implica ir corriendo a cada persona por pocos. Me tomo una hora y media para llegar a recoger las maletas. Hojala que pueden mejorar esto. Gracias."
Cons: "It was late and then I missed my connection, and an Avianca employee told me there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on. However, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Cons: "We upgraded to business class but it didn’t make up for the old plane. It was loud, old and dirty, the crew was good. It was was a 5+ hour flight and it would have been great to be on a newer plane, which they use for shorter flights."
Pros: "I liked the food and caring staff."
Cons: "See above + air hostesses speak poor English. When asked to persuade certain travellers to put their seats in the upright position during mealtimes they refused and claimed that it is bussines of mine to arrange for that. In the course of previous flight they have hower required that. Very confusing. The behaviour and performance of the crew was hardly proffesional. They paid little attention e.g. To people who did respect instructions concerning fastening the seat belts orcto remain seated during landing, etc."
Cons: "The passengers on this flight from San Salvador to LAX were drunk and standing in the aisles and talking VERY loudly for nearly the duration of the 4.5 hour flight, and the crew did nothing about it. I asked the crew (a grumpy male flight attendant) if they are allowed to do that, and he merely grunted. The female flight attendants smiled at the large men drinking in the aisles and continued to bring them drinks. My boyfriend had a large man's butt in his face for the duration of the flight. Behind us a man was talking very loudly and obnoxiously about his travels to the point where his voice woke us up. The crew did NOTHING to mitigate the obnoxious behavior of the passengers, and allowed them to stand in the aisle for the whole flight, to the point where we felt claustrophobic and invaded upon. We were particularly surprised as we've heard that this violates airline policy AND the crew did nothing to even ask them to sit or to move to the back of the plane. In addition, it was very hot at the AC was not working above our seats."
Cons: "We paid for non stop and ended up having to take a shittier flight times with stops. What a scam. We. Got the worst seats on a jam packed flight where the attendants were rude as hell. Last time flying avisnca."
Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Pros: "Truthfully, nothing."
Cons: "Get attendants that speak English on a flight to LAX and who do their job. It was impossible trying to get water. Not sure what the delay was once we landed, but it's nearly 1 hour later and we are still on the plane and the doors aren't open. We are thirsty, especially considering we couldn't get water while on the flight. Will never fly avianca again."
Pros: "Pretty good fly"
Cons: "Crew not to friendly"
Pros: "The seat was comfort and good food. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Had to restart screen twice, as it would freeze/blackout"
Cons: "After receiving my luggage in Los Angeles, I discovered that they had broken the zipper of the bag and also the lock in the bag. They also took from my bag gifts I had bought for my friends (lighters with their name)!!"
Pros: "First time flying Avianca. Best experience, Best service everything good. Love it."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful, too slow for this type of service :("
Cons: "Time to wait"
Pros: "Before our flight, several people were called to the check-in desk. These were obviously frequent flyers because later we saw these individuals sitting in Executive Class. Felt a little jealous, because I'm not a frequent flyer, but it was nice to see how Avianca takes care of its regular customers. Everything about the flight was first class, even if I was sitting in coach. The staff were friendly and helpful, the plane was comfortable--a 787, everyone's favorite--and the food was actually very tasty: chicken breast with a delicious green curry/salsa, some rice, green salad. Water and juices were available in the aft galley in between the meal and light snack before arrival. The entertainment offerings were terrific. If I hadn't had such great traveling companions to chat with, I would have caught up on some new releases I had missed, or one of the classics--"Singing in the Rain," "Citizen Kane," and much more. I don't know how you could improve the customer experience. Great job, Avianca!"
Pros: "Food, seats, entertaiment, customer service"
Cons: "The baggage took almost half hour to come out, I missed my car in the rental because of that."
Pros: "Flight on time and nice attendants."
Cons: "That they would not allow me to choose a seat before 24 hours of departure because the "ticket was too cheap"."
Pros: "the whole crew."
Pros: "When Taca was managing it was a total disaster: Now under Avianca we experienced great courtesy from the crew, acceptable food and snacks, and prompt service. Taca took the prices to the ceiling and it was a shame to pay 900.00dls for a trip to El Salvador.to make it worst they threw peanuts and soda y our trays, which was poor second class service. It took us almost 10 years to return to Avianca/Taca. but now we are pleased. Definitely your best point is CUSTOMER SERVICE. ( pRICES STILL HIGH). tHANK YOU."
Cons: "VOLUME ON THE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE TOO LOW, AND HARD TO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THEY RUSH, CREW SHOULD SPEAK SLOW, PAUSED AND CLEAR ON BOTH LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY IN ENGLISH SO TO MAKE IT UNDERSTANDABLE FOR ALL."
Pros: "Service was spectacular and the plane was almost new."
Pros: "It's just ok"
Pros: "The food they served for dinner was enjoyable."
Cons: "After arriving in San Salvador from San Jose, another passenger informed us that there was a flight departing for LAX at around 3:30 PM. Considering that our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:25 PM, we decided to ask the customer representative at the Avianca information desk if there were any open seats available on our flight home to LAX. She informed us that there were open seats BUT we would have to pay an extra $200 to board that flight. I have been on other airlines before and they have offered me the option to get on an earlier flight - FREE OF CHARGE. Considering I had bought my complete, round trip ticket for $435, the idea of paying an extra $200 for one leg of my journey seemed ludicrous! So I stayed the 6+ hours in El Salvador. Fast forward 6 hours and the desk agent at our gate announces that our flight is completely booked and they are offering $300 for anyone who will give up their seats. I am PISSED. Avianca knew our flight was overbooked and had the opportunity to take two passengers off the list and free up seats for the next flight! Instead, they chose to make us wait and delayed our flight. I do not understand Avianca's customer service procedures. Why would you not put my friend and I on the next flight when you know the next flight is going to be overbooked and possibly delayed? I'll I know is that if I can avoid flying with Avianca in the future, I will do it."
Cons: "I had an original seat that I paid for, but because the flight was overbooked and oversold, i moved three times to different sections towards the back of the plane, in the end where my seat did not have electricity, light, or the tv working. I moved because there was a family that wanted to sit together, and that I completely understand, but what I don't get is why I wasn't told or given a seat of equal value that I Paid for. it was an 8 hour flight without light to read, no tv to watch and no music."
Pros: "On flight home I had seat 1 c on my ticket so I went to coach to find 1c. I soon found out that 1c was business class !! It was wonderful sitting up there. My friend booked the flight and even she didn't realize 1c was business class. I had a wonderful flight back to LAX in 1c. The crew was special as well. Nelson made me feel special as well as rest of crews."
Pros: "787 seemed new, nicely appointed, FA's attentive, excellent selection of movies, Very smooth flight, cannot remember a smoother one, good landing at LAX."
Cons: "Poor check-in process at Avianca counter BOG, very slow attendant who seemed to go through the motions. Flight number changed twice, seat selection which was confirmed twice, was dropped at the end, forcing me to reselect seats located in the back of the plane. This was very annoying as I had kept abreast of all airline emails regarding flight number changes, and yet at the end it was for naught as my traveling companion and I were placed in different sections. The dinner was worse than usual poor quality."
Pros: "Muy buen viaje algo amigable el personaal"
Cons: "La comida mala t el entretenimiento malo"
Pros: "Great views, we got lucky with no Volcanic activity and a gorgeous day."
Pros: "I liked the convenience of the low cost tickets."
Cons: "I was misinformed to buy a one-way ticket for my grandma and had to buy her another one-way ticket in Ecuador for $450 before she could leave the country. Will never fly with Avianca Airlines again."
Pros: "The same comment that Lima - San Salvador flight."
Cons: "Same that Lima - San Salvador."
