Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the cabin in First Class was clean"
Cons: "I’m a big guy so using the tray table to eat was very uncomfortable and almost didn’t work at all"

Pros: "Is ok"
Cons: "More space between seat and free food"

Pros: "No"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! We were supposed to leave at 7:30 pm and we ended up departing at 9pm"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "More room in seat"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Despite having a boarding pass with an assigned seat, Avianca would not let me board. My seat was given to someone else. There was no explanation as to why I no longer had a reserved seat. I had to wait until the next morning to get a flight to Cusco. My hotel reservation in Cusco for the night could not be refunded so I am out $400."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Never got on the flight!! This was a Christmas gift & they took the money when booked it and told me they needed credit card verification 2hrs before departure! Terms and conditions doesn’t say I needed the credit card when checking-in! They also NEVER notified us that I was needing that information! The person who booked my flight is overseas!!! They are the worst at customer service. Still waiting to hear back from them! It’s the holidays and they are absolutely careless! I must add that when checking-in the agent was rude, unprofessional and even mocked me! ridiculous!"

Pros: "Andres was so nice. Amazing actually"
Cons: "They boarded us then we had to switch planes. Delayed an hour"

Pros: "Nothing special."

Cons: "I didn’t like the food, worse I’ Ever taste"

Pros: "short flight"

Pros: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."

Pros: "American"

Pros: "Latam would not transfer 1 medium baggage from LATAM to Avianca at Lima"

Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."

Cons: "Why go through security over again as a transit passenger? Especially, as Lima airport security appears poorly organized."

Pros: "The movie and TV selection was excellent"
Cons: "Interrupting my movie several times. Stop that. I understand when it’s a seat belt message, or landing. Don’t make me listen to the pilot drone on about the weather. It’s 2018. I can check that on my own"

Pros: "Worst airline food in years."
Cons: "Food was bad on all 4 legs of trip"

Cons: "Remained on tarmac too long before allowed to disembark airplane in San Salvador. However, I did not miss my connection because of it. Did not offer enough water during flight! I was getting dehydrated."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "Relatively quick, friendly crew, on time (boarding, departure, arrival)"
Cons: "Hit a bit of turbulence, food was good, but can be improved"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Boarding was simple and efficient Seat was better than usual"
Cons: "Dinner was okay, the mid-flight snack was awful and made my wife sick, breakfast was better. Entertainment console crashed four times, first crew member didn’t seem to care (aloof for most of the flight), other attendants seemed marginally more interested. No one checked back to see if the problem was resolved. Flight attendants seem to be in “check the box” mode doing only what was necessary."

Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Delay, no food,"

Pros: "one more bag"

Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."

Cons: "Being stuck on the runway"

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."

Pros: "We were able to fly standby after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "On both legs of this trip, the staff seemed tired and cranky. Smiles were rare and attendants had a bit of a tone when speaking with clients. The boarding crew never called our group, but when we asked, she scolded us and said we should hurry up or we would lose our seats."

The rude flight attendant told me in a very bad tone to go back to my seat that I couldn’t seat in there . Only to see later that she put her coat in there. I got up later to go to the bathroom , also I have overreacted bladder and she told me in same rude talk go back to my seat that if I couldn’t see that the do not get up signs were on. I felt literally she yelled at me . Never asked me if I needed help , or just wait a little . I literally pee in my pants"

Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
