Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Lost our luggage on a direct flight"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "My prepaid seat was not taken in consideration."

Pros: "Entire flight crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was canceled a month ago, and kayak failed to notify me."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice"

Cons: "Did not offer enough WATER."
Pros: "The nicest flight crew we experienced"
Cons: "The chairs were tight together"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was over 4 hours late. We missed our connecting flight with Star Peru, and had to buy new tickets with Viva Air. We spoke with an Avianca supervisor who told us it was not her company's fault the flight was late. Avianca had a flight that night to our destination but they refused to find space for us, or to issue some type of refund or voucher for our lost time and money."
Cons: "The airport Jorge Chavez in Lima sucks. Don't spend anymore time than you have to there unless you are prepared to spend a ton on food and water. $9 for a large bottle of water!!"
Pros: "The attention and services"
Pros: "The food was fabulous!"
Pros: "The bag search was very thorough and many employees were wearing their Peru jerseys under their uniforms."
Cons: "Everything else. Flight was delayed almost four hours with no explanation. Received multiple calls from Avianca but all in Spanish until fifth one in English hung up once we confirmed we understood there was a delay. Staff communicated different directions. Only one cafe to wait in. Substitute breakfast served was underwhelming. Plane was incredibly dated with life vests strewn about/not tucked away. Upon deboarding, incredibly unclear that we had to completely exit and go back through security, meaning we had no time between flights for the restroom or to buy water."
Pros: "Clean comfortable and on time"
Pros: "air flight attendants were really great! As well as suitcase handle, it arrived on destination after all scales, awesome"
Cons: "space was small in economic class"
Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"
Pros: "Good flight, helpful staff and friendly crew. There was a flight delay out of Iquitos due to fog, causing us to miss our next connection in Lima to Cusco but the staff in Iquitos made sure we got on the next plane with new tickets and luggage transferred to the right plane. Naturally, we were disappointed with several hours of delay due to safety but were pleased with the service in resolving our concerns. There was no entertainment available on this trip ever through there was a screen for each seat."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class. Provided umbrellas for boarding. Changed our daughters' seat assignments so they could sit together. Nice breakfast."

Pros: "I didn't like at all. I will never fly with this airline ever again"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Couldn't flight. I was on time, got an inspection through the police,. Missed my flight for the long inspection. Now, the airline wants me to pay penality for something that I didn't commit. Francisco Vishnu Carpio checa"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Several of the seats were broken - not sure why they insist on everyone raising their seatbacks for security reasons while they continue to operate flights where customers can't raise their seats. Maybe this isn't that important after all? The plastic backs of the chairs has clearly been refinished but the finish has worne off or been etched with customer graffiti."
Pros: "Although we were in "Economy" class, it felt just like Business. Lots of space to stretch your legs, personal TV monitor on the back of each head rest (Including HBO!), and even though it was a short 1.5 hour flight we were served drinks and a meal."
Cons: "The meal was average to sub-par, but than again it was a short flight and a warm meal was actually a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "I reached the Lima airport an hour before domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. The lady in charge told me the gate was closed. I told her it was an hour before and i had valid tickets and she was not ready to listen to anything. Horrible service ! Who closes gates to a flight an hour before ?"
Cons: "Ran a little late."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Took forever To take off. Also a mix up happens with our seats & crew was unconcerned or helpful."
Cons: "The emergency exit row window seats are extremely uncomfortable. Seats don't recline and there is no arm rest along the wall. Also, there were no vegetarian options aboard and the flight attendants didn't make any effort to put together something I could eat."
Pros: "short flight, timeliness, great service!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Very quick flight and good service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour."
Pros: "Flights were on time and had excellent in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "No drink services are provided on these flights. Unsure if that's specific to our flights (we took 2 Avianca flights) or all domestic flights in general."
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Pros: "Flights were first class. I liked knowing the reputation of Avianca and that it is not known for cancelling flights. One of the best landings ever and in a challenging place!"
Cons: "The snack was basic, however it is a 1-hour flight"
Cons: "Their check in was ridiculously slow-15-20 min per person at times. How is that possible? The flight was said to be 90 min delayed. I asked about getting on another airline. They said no. Finally this 1 hour flight was 3 hours late to Lima & I missed my international flight. Never again Avianca."
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Pros: "The plane was almost empty and so I was able to rest comfortably."
Pros: "Tuve 2 paradas antes de llegar a destino y realmente estaba asustada de que la maleta no llegará junto conmigo a destino pero lo hizo! Además todos los vuelos salieron a tiempo, todo funcionó muy sincronizado"
Cons: "La comida no me gusto tanto, aunque no estaba tan mal tampoco, quizás un menú para niños estaría bien que tuvieran."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "The Cusco airport was a mess! Long delay an changed the gate twice"
Pros: "The food was good for airline food. The exit rows do give you more leg room."
Cons: "However if you sit in an exit row or directly in front of one you cannot recline your seat. This is a big deal if it is an overnight flight like the one I had because it makes it very difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Very comfy seats, a lot of leg space."
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "CREW AND ONBOARD FOOD MADE THE DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES SERVISING SAME AMOUNT OF FLIGHT HOURS."
Cons: "BUT ENTERTAINMENT WAS TERRIBLE FOR A NEARLY 5 HOURS FLIGHT NOT TO HAVE SCREEN ON EACH SEAT WAS A DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE. WHEN WE FLEW FROM BOGOTA TO PUJ PLANE HAD SEAT SCREENS AND WAS GREAT SERVICE."
Pros: "Competent flight attendants and modern airplane."
Cons: "My flight from Lima to Cusco was overbooked, so they bumped me to the next flight, which was 5 hours later. As a token of apology, they offered me a free lunch from one of the cafes in the Lima airport. I got to the cafe, and I was able to pick between one of two boring sandwiches. I was more in the mood for a different one that was one nuevo sol more, but apparently that was not allowed with my coupon. So essentially, I got to spend eight hours in the airport for a measly sandwich that wasn't very good. And then my return flight from Cusco to Lima was delayed by over an hour, which was also not ideal (although nowhere near as bad as the original situation)."
Pros: "Crew were great, flight was enjoyable and scenery stunning, enjoyed the flight once we got going."
Cons: "Mix up at the boarding gate - allocated gate 4 and then moved to gate 1. Half hour delay due to reshuffle not good when someone is meeting you at the other end. Entertainment system not working so lucky no one sitting next to me so could then move and this system not functioning properly. Suggest that any changes are given with plenty of notice and loudly and/or on the screen at the departure gate - maybe this has to be negotiated with the Cusco airport. Broadcasts in Spanish are okay for those who speak it but English is lost when announcements are made."
