Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Smells horrible

Volaris is the worst aerolines ever, they’re stuff it’s helpless, they don’t even how to take care of clients. Will NEVER use them again!!

El personal es poco o nada amable, los asientos muy incómodos.

Pros: "No"
Cons: "Letting me know from the beginning that I need to scan some stupid code that is not necessary I waste a lot of time trying to scan the code and I couldn't to finally an employee give me a form to put what all ready was written"

Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Great crew- fast boarding"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "I only chose this flight because it is direct to Guadalajara."
Cons: "Let me pay for my bags ahead of time. Seats are the smallest in the industry. Hurt my knees when the person in front of my moved. Charging money for everything isn't worth the money. My money is in my bag. The little bit of revenue you get from these sales isn't worth the lack of good will and discomfort given to the passengers."
Pros: "Crew was poor in preparing for boarding. Boarding happened 30-50 minutes past final call."
Cons: "They could have been more open about checking in. They had a long line that was a mix of three flight leaving in the same hour. They could have organized the boarding better as well. Splitting the passengers in three groups didn't play out so well."

Cons: "On time flights !!!"
Cons: "None , everything worked out well it was an excellent fly"
Pros: "My experience was so terrible I don’t have anything positive to say."
Cons: "1. The original flight I purchased was less than $100, Volaris cancelled it and the only flight available for me to purchase was then $150. 2. After I purchased the 2nd flight, I called within seconds because I noticed my mother’s name was on the ticket instead of mine! I had previously purchased her flight and somehow the kayak site had auto populated her name, i know for a fact did I did not type in her name, it is longer Han mine and has a middle name, i don’t even have a middle name. I think it was justfly, the third party who sent the confirmation email, I explained the situation, they took my contact information and since I had just called they would reach out to Volaris to see if they could change it to my name, and would reach back out to me within a few days. They never called/emailed me back. When I called Volaris they charged me a name change fee off $80+... I don’t know if anyone cares about customer service at Kayak, I have been purchasing all my personal flights through Kayak since 2007, this is by far the worse ticketing/airline experience I have ever had. Also, Volaris charged me $10 for my backpack that I store underneath the seat in front of me! They are a terrible airline, that straight out rips people off. This is the last time I fly with them, and probably last time I use Kayak."
Pros: "The crew was nice but your prices are ridiculous. I cant believe you charge for snacks.

Cons: "With lack of reclining seats and no complimentary snacks or drinks at all, the comfort scale is lacking. Even the tray tables were replaced by miniature, undersized, pieces. Even with the discounted prices, it’s hard to want to fly with them again."
Pros: "price"
Cons: "Old people boarding first, boarding slowly, then arguing that their carryon is really just a personal item. Wasting time, and eventually getting to keep their obviously oversized item for free. (The feat of us paid for ours) Th n they are allowed to put their item in the overhead compartment when the rules clearly state personal items go under the seat. Frustrating"
Pros: "Nothing other than sitting on the first row"
Cons: "Waiting for more than 3 hours to check in my bag then pay a lot of money for it.only 3 people at the checking area."
Cons: "Seat,s are to small and hard"
Pros: "More snack/food options"
Cons: "Too long trip without free food"
Pros: "It was my mother's 1st time flying alone with an airline I had never flown. I was nervous because she needed a lot of assistance, but the Frontier guys who took care of her went above and beyond to make sure she would be taken care of. They walked her onto the plane, and made sure she was taken to her seat. The little things matter. And it's the only airline that flies direct from MIA to PVD:)"
Cons: "The additional charges added on make this airfare comparable with others. Initially, I only went with it because it was the only airline that flew direct to PVD. If Frontier is going to be comparable in price to others, make sure the service is also on the same standards. Also, the flight leaving earlier than the scheduled time can be a hassle for someone cutting it close."
Cons: "wished I knew about the fees for both checked and carry-on luggage"
Pros: "I liked the price but class of service given.....i would gladly pay more. I arrived at the ticket counter at 9am to a line of people with 12 empty counters.We were told by other airlines and security that they open at 9:30.Finally some came at 9:45...and then only one person. Also by the time I added an additional 65.00 for baggage my flight ended up costing more than if I would have taken a classier airline."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 20 minutes, then an hour, then another hour, then 7 hours. My 930am flight finally departed at 730pm."
Cons: "Extremely smelly (poor ventilation?), seats dont recline, no table, scary landing that gave air sickness to many. Many extra fees, might as well fly a normal airline."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic very accommdating and friendly and i arrived at my destination ahead of schedule always a plus!"
Cons: "Eventhough i paid for the more roomier seats, it was still a tight squeeze. Next time I'll choose seats by the wing or thr very first rows."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Not terrible but the cost of the flight doesn't include carry-on charge per person of $35 each way (so add $70 to your ticket even if you travel light). I'm 5'5" and the seats were tight. No tv. No snacks. No charger."
Pros: "Everything was on time. The seats were comfortable. No big issues."
Cons: "You have a box to measure carryons at the desk and the representative said bags needed to fit it, but they never checked bags as they were brought on board, and many of them were way over size. That leads to a shortage of space for those of us who used correctly sized bags. You need to enforce the rules. The copilot's announcements were mumbled and very quiet. You could hardly hear them. The pilot's announcements were fine."
Pros: "Check in every thing was smooth. Your staff is very hospitable."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled due to the strom. I rebooked for the Sunday because i was told you were rescheduling for Sunday flights only. I would have preferred to reschedule for Saturday but wasn't allowed. To my surprise you had flights Friday snd Saturday after the storm passed which were already full. I missed events i already paid for which i was upset. I felt i should have been notified about the open flights and given an option to reschedule with no penalty."
Pros: "the crew was amazing... so were the agents at the gate.. you all have hired very good people..."
Cons: "seats didn't recline"
Pros: "The crew was fine, polite."
Cons: "My biggest complaint is the lack of communication. Upon booking they do not make you aware that you have to pay extra to bring luggage of any kind. This added $60 to my trip, making the flight no longer "low cost" also I was sitting in the back of the plane and the bathrooms were emitting a sewage smell during the whole flight. We were also delayed for over an hour both ways once sitting on the plane and there was no explanation as to why. I would never consider taking this airline again."
Pros: "Service was good ,on time , no hassle for bags ,I had one bag ,I was hearing lot of harassment on baggage . I found all good , no issue at all"
Cons: "Service,on time"
Pros: "Loved the crew!"
Pros: "They ripped me off on the carryon and the staff seemed to have animosity towards me"
Pros: "The staff onboard were friendly and the flight was fast and we arrived early."
Cons: "You have to pay for all snacks, no tv, electronic boarding passes don't work with TSA causing me to have to stand in line even though I was already checked in, the counter was understaffed and I don't think I like having to purchase the seat separate from the airline ticket."
Pros: "affordable"
Cons: "baggage fees"
Pros: "Overall experience"
Cons: "Had to pay for seats, carry on, and snacks"
Cons: "When I get to the gate the woman told me that I don't pay for my carry on luggage even though it was the 2nd flight in a round trip flight. The first part I got on with the same exact bags with no extra charge. Instead of looking up my info she told me I pay or I stay. Without raising my voice I asked her to check but this caused her to get defensive. We had 5 min to get on the flight and we didn't have time to argue. Frontier robbed me of $120. I fly back and forth from Florida to New Jersey always using Frontier. This past weekend is my last time using that airline. Jet Blue and American will now get my business and I'll make sure I tell everyone I know about what happened."
Pros: "Frontier is the new breed of airlines that will soon be charging you for the air you breath on the plane! There is nothing I can recommend about this airline. Every step of the process involves additional charges including charges for seats, early-check-in and carry on luggage…. carry on luggage is an additional $40.00!!! Many of the other passengers felt misled and this resulted in a number of frustrated, angry and disappointed people at check-in."
Cons: "All of the concealed extra charges; seats were too small for an average adult."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Frontier isnt honest about its information display policies... the price displayed on Kayak does not mention that passengers have to pay for carry on.. which is truly an odd expense.. $ 40 each time in a round trip is a considerable expense.. furthermore, there is no mention that I have to pay for water and not to mention the old aiplanes... which rattles... this airline isnt worth the hassle..."
Pros: "The gate attendant and the crew were all very nice and accommodating. Basic flight, no worse or better than any other airline."
Cons: "I did not realize they charged for carryon, so was charged $40 at the gate. So much for an excellent fare. Was not aware Frontier had changed to a "no frills" airline. It was also annoying to have advertising for their credit card, but a lot of airlines do this and it is equally annoying. Everything was a cost, even water. Well, now I know and can make more informed decisions before traveling with them again."
Pros: "price was good."
Cons: "I was not aware that there would be an extra charge for the seat and carry-on/checked bag. I didn't realize until the night before the trip when I received the check in email. this should have been informed upfront!! the seats and tray tables should be wiped down after every single flight!!!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable. Not worth to fly a "cheaper" airline because after you pay for all the extras like check in and/or carry on luggage you realize you could travel with a better airline. Also I was told my flight was delayed more then 3 hours a couple of hours before the original time of flight. Had to hang at airport and those 3 hours delay messed completely with my weekend trip to Vegas where I had a camper rented with time for pick up."
Pros: "Frontier provided hotel vouchers for the night along with food vouchers. Even though there was a bit of a waiting game from time to time, everything was organized."
Cons: "Upon arrival to the Kansas City, MO airport we were instructed to stay on the plane for an undetermined time. We were offered snacks for purchase. I think they could have spared some free snacks considering they had already gone through selling while en route."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "They charge additionals for everything and give only water once in the plane. At the end after chargin for every piece of luggage "EVERY" the ticket is more expensive than others carriers."
Pros: "There was nothing I liked."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, there was no entertainment, you have to pay $40 for carry on luggage. The flight got delayed 3 hours, the staff was rude to the passengers. We had to take a detour to Philadelphia instead of NY to refuel, which took an extra hour and a half. They gave us no snacks/vouchers in the mean time. We ended up arriving at 10pm instead of the original arrival time of 4pm."
Cons: "I didnt like the fact that the flight was delayed and a notification wasn't sent to my phone. I had checked the status that night when I checked in and early in the morning and the system said that the flight was on time. It wasnt until I reached the airport and the lady behind the baggage counter told me that the flight was delayed for two hours. I went to go eat with my daughter at the Chilis restaraunt. I figired since the flight was delayed why not have some lunch and head to the plane an hour before take off time. I left the restarant and went through screening. One of the TSA memebers asked me why was I going in so early when the flight was on delayed. I let them know that the flight was suppose to be taken off in an hour so they let me through. As I'm walking through the terminla they have someone walking bu asking if anyone was getting on the frontier flight. I told them that I was on that flight and they told me I needed to hurry up because the plane was about to leave. I became nervous ans started running down the gate to make it to the plane. I'm running with a two year old so Im pretty sure that you can only imagine how difficult that was. Once I reached the gate I was out of breath and it was suppose to be eight minutes before we took off. However we sat on the plane for about another thirty minutes before we left. I feel as though the communication with the airline is not there 100% and if you are sitting in an airport you should be able to hear the update especially when they are not planned ir taking place at a time that is different from what was already relayed."
Pros: "I liked how efficient the entire staff and flight crew was."
Cons: "I world have liked to know that all food and beverage were available for purchase only."
Pros: "price"
Cons: "carry on price"
Cons: "We got bussed from Philadelphia to LGA as plane was short of fuel due to long wait time landing in LGA. It was just terrible. Took forever to get to NY. Not entirely airlines fault. Weather has lot to do with it. But number of factors contributed. Boarding was delayed as we missed our a lot and took of later on top of already late flight. Then. Things just went south. The Staff were very counties and helpful and did their best."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing I enjoyed."
Cons: "The Pilot was horrible!!! When we were preparing for landing, it felt like a roller coaster ride. The plane made a long drop and had everyone screaming. I'm never stepping to that plane ever again."
Pros: "The crew was just great I had to leave a review. Woman at ticketing and the gate was amazing, very funny kind and accommodating! Flight attendants were the same as well, made the experience very pleasant :)"
Cons: "You have to pay for a bag, zero entertainment & zero free snacks :("
Pros: "I liked one stewardess who was very helpul unfortunately didn't get her name. Thin, tall, blonde hair. She was very attentive."
Cons: "The gate changed and it was 15 minutes to supposed departure time and no one announced it or signage. Flight was to leave at 1:20, we weren't updated of a delay. They got us inside the plane at 1:45 and flight didn't leave till 3p!! The seats were squished and no one would give us any info. Close to departure the pilot said there was a maintenance issue. The other 2 female stewardesses were bitches. An asian one with short hair and a chubby blonde one in about her 60s."
Cons: "* I had to pay additional for any seat that I chose and for baggage, both ways increasing the price significantly. * The basic seat was tiny and very uncomfortable * The crew offered beverages for a cost but not any soda or water. * One steward slept on the plane for a good half hour or more."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "Hidden fees for carry on and flight crew was unable to even fill my water bottle. American airlines were able to do so even if it was not filled up all the way."
Pros: "I have read other reviews of a delay.but my experience ... we were ontime. Listen people, it is what it is, what are you expecting for these low fares? so here's what you do, take advantage of the low fare BTW I paid $44 from Miami to Atl One way. Take your backpack and go! it's either Frontier or $100 plus for another airline."
Cons: "There is not much I didn't like, I've traveled enough to know not to expect luxury for certain priced flights."
Pros: "It was really fast flight i loved it."
Cons: "We didn't even get to go on the plane. The flight was cancelled before we got to the airport. They gave us no explanation why it was cancelled. Also the information they gave us was terrible. A woman gave us a parse that said "call this number to reschedule" as soon as we called it, the reply was "I'm sorry we are closed try calling this number." It took about 2 hours to figure out how to get scheduled on a different airline."
Cons: "The plane was forced to do a mechanical update by the FAA. It was thus 6 hours late. The mechanical should have been tended to in regular service of the plane - not before boarding with passengers. They are clearly not doing a thorough job at maintenance requirements. Given that the plane was stopped in Denver (their headquarters), they should have provided another plan from standby - do they not have any planes ready to go on standby at their hub?? Get some! Passengers were given lunch vouchers at the gate, but only one of the food vendors would take them citing poor contract relations with Frontier and not getting timely paid. That one (a Pizza place) was very reluctant to take the voucher also. In Addition: $45 for a small carry-on bag was ridiculous as was no complimentary music, tv, cracker, peanut or coffee. I was unable to check-in online with my cell phone due to poor user friendly programming and poor communication of data from Kayak"
