Pros: "The crew was excelent"
Cons: "The fly was delayed."
Cons: "People were NOT following instructions at boarding time... even though they were giving us instructions about who was boarding... I mentioned it to the agent when I boarded and he replied “No, that’s not true” when I was seeing who was boarding and when... if families with children were called... even single travelers were boarding the general boarding line... nobody really cared"
Pros: "Was really good"
Cons: "I was trying to change my return but they said because I bought it with KAYAK they will charge me minimum 300 dollars and they say they can not do it anyway. That I didn’t like it."
Cons: "Delay. I missing my train in Miami"
Pros: "Overall everything went well. Boarding was easy, quick, and the crew very helpful."
Cons: "I felt the space between rows is a bit tight and the food was fair."
Cons: "Airline employees at gate did not take the time to search passenger return flight in system, despite return being through Avianca and easy to find. This led to passenger missing flight. They ended up finding it after the missed flight and placing passenger in the following day's flight."
Pros: "The movies were the only good thing in this flight because the food sucks and the seat are very uncomfortable, which makes think on not to take Avianca for long distance trips anymore"
Cons: "The flight was delayed (53 min) and they only announced once the change in the gate from 51 to 43, many people were lost without knowing were to go."
Pros: "Crew service inflight are very well trained."
Cons: "After I checked in online, I noticed that my flight was delayed from 9 pm to next day at 3 am. I called the help desk and after 40 minutes and 4 different people they said that in fact that the flight 008 from Bohota to Miami was delayed. Very Poor communication between company departments and poor communication alerts to costumers. In addittion, the only explanation from counter staff was "airplane maintance". Really? For an international flight from Bogota where you have located your main airplane base ? I do believe that land staff is very poorly train compared to inflight crew. Land staff has very poor supervision to improve costumer service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. We were placed on a bus for over 40 minutes. Plane was not ready. Gate personnel had no idea, lied to us. A complete disaster. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Good service well kept airplanes"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Comfortable airplane. Crew was polite and helpful. I don’t usually eat in a plane, but the meal was not bad at all."
Cons: "First of all the flight was very late, so I missed my connection flight from Miami. I couldn’t get home on the other airline because it was full, so I had to buy another ticket to another city and had a family member pick me up, so we drove an additional hour. From the time I went to the airport in La Paz, took me 24 hours to get home. I had to work the next day."
Pros: "I like the the crew they were very nice and polite"
Cons: "Some of this stuff need to be a little more friendly and courteous"
Cons: "I had cancel my flight with Avianca due to hurricane Irma and the airline would not cancel. It does not want to return the money"
Cons: "Called "customer service" and they changed my tickets. Tried to rebook 3 times but each time was a problem and lost each of the 3 reservations because they can't take payments. They should not have changed anything to begging with. It's a trap! Now I have to figure out how to get my money back."
Pros: "The same"
Cons: "The same"
Cons: "The direct flight to Miami was postpone at 1:00 in the morning. They sent me to Panama and then to Miami in the last back seat of the 2 flights. My suitcase is still in Panama. Not delivered in Miami. The flight Panama-Miami was really dirty. What a disaster!"
Pros: "On time flight and smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Food was ok."
Cons: "I did not received my luggage cost me 500 dollars in buying new cloths in order to attend the party I was invited to"
Pros: "Ample legroom, ability to select seats without hassle, a warm meal! Also loved the fact that while flying from Miami to South America and back we had a 2 bag allowance each. These small things are rare nowadays."
Cons: "The phone customer service reps should be made aware that two lap infants cannot sit on the same side of the airplane row. There are only 4 oxygen masks above each side of the row."
Pros: "Much better boarding experience and many new movies to choose from. I watched the new Beauty and the Beast."
Cons: "Their protocols for taking off and landing are a little dated. Passengers are not allowed to use blankets during take off/landing, also all window shades have to be open. They were very serious about it."
Pros: "I like the comfort measures of this ~2.5 hour flight each way trip without being "nickel and dimed" like what happens on the so-called "economy" airlines."
Pros: "Modern comforts, pleasantries, good service, clean, spacious Searle Inc. Great experience. Felt like flying in the old days. Great planes."
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "The landing was horrifying. After being on many commercial flights over the years I have never felt this way about a flight experience. The pilot seemed very inexperienced nor skilled at landing. The plane first took a plunge leaving everyone grabbing their seats in fear. The plane was going way too fast as we then continued descending while the plane tilted to the side and then the nose of the plane tipped downwards. To best describe the situation, the plane was completely out of control. Everyone around me was frightened and talking about the awful experience. Flight attendants nor the pilot made any mention of what happened nor did they make an announcement to make passengers aware that there may be some difficulty landing. Therefore passengers were left to wonder what really happened but it seemed as if this was the first time the pilot had flown a plane. After the landing I was sick for the rest of the day with nausea. I would like a refund and will report this matter to the FAA for answers and I believe they should investigate what happened on this flight for safety matters. I did not feel safe at all, and I have never had an experience like this. I'm afraid to ever fly AVIANCA again."
Pros: "Wonderful surprise to have a nice meal, blanket and pillow on a 4 hour flight. Very impressed with the comfort of coach"
Pros: "fly was very good the crew very professional and good service"
Cons: "In Medellin the check in is very bad you have to stay in the line with the the people flying domestic fly.. In Miami when I received my luggage was broken and in addition we have to wait for the personal the avianca because they were in lunch time and according with a "suppervisor" they were fighting My name is Rene Gutierrez my phone number 1-305-502-2111"
Cons: "the food between bog and mia was horrible a very hard and greasy piece of meat. the entertainment system had to be rebooted 4 times, it started working one hour into the flight."
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Cons: "Worst service ever and we got the last 2 seats in the plane. Pilot seemed to be disturbed and and had a bad attitude towards passengers that could be felt overtime he communicated anything. Maneuvers were really rough."
Pros: "On the flight down from Miami to Cartagena, we did not expect a meal...and since we are all vegetarians, pretty much did not get one, but the flight attendants gave us what they could. I called Avianca and requested vegetarian and received for all 6 of us! Also, pleased that my whole family was seated in one row."
Pros: "The movie"
Cons: "How they play yoyo with the fare....i paid about $1100.00 for a round trip flight from miami to barranquilla, and a couple of days later it dropped to half the price. On my way back from barranquilla to miami, i was excatly 4 minutes late, they refused to let me on the flight, which was not even boarding yet (1 hour away from flight time). They forced me to buy a one-way flight back, with connecting flight, for $550. I don't know if this even going to make any difference, or even be read, for that matter, but i thought i would relay that to other customers who are thinking about flying with avianca."
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Pros: "The punctuality is good, the crew is good."
Cons: "How can you sell a full fight on an Airbus A-330 and not have enough food for everyone?! On this flight, me and my son were left without a hot breakfast and their excuse was "sorry, we ran out" so we got only the leftovers from the serving trays. It's sad how airlines keep getting worst by the day."
Cons: "Bad service, worst customer service, we asked for vegetarian meals and never served even though they were confirmed."
Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"

Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly personnel; efficient and timely boarding: surprisingly good meals"
Pros: "The early check in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than an hour. The seating is super uncomfortable, a small sandwich is all we got for an almost 4 hour flight plus the delay. No entertainment on board makes it a killer. I will no longer be booking any flights with LatAm."
Pros: "The food was good"
Pros: "No waiting"
Pros: "all except the food"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "seat, food, entertainment system and options"

Cons: "1. Plane to small. there was no room. 2. Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Cons: "Never made flight because of Latham delays"
Cons: "Lost my flight after connection with Turkish arrived late and lost my luggage, Latam has no office in Chicago so i had to call, didn't assist me on the phone with changing my flight, sent me to speak with American airlines that was operating the flight, asked for a supervisor on the phone but they declined. Second day at airport i found out they booked me on a three leg flight home at 8 AM althought i was on the phone with them at 1:30 AM and I was never informed about the flight they offered at 8 AM. I ended up paying again for a flight with United the same day."

Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Cons: "no customer serve no help"
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Punctuality. attention of stewardesses"
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Pros: "Easy boarding and organized staff. Friendly staff overall."
Cons: "Terrible terrible food- no TV (really? in 10 years flying to Colombia this was a first) seats were very uncomfortable, no room to move the legs, the seats were super old no room at all. I have traveled with LATAM before and I had good experiences, with no complains. But the flight from Bogota to Miami on may 29th was mediocre and it seems longer than it was. That plane should be used for shorter flights and not a 4 hour international flight. I am not expecting first class seats and 5 course meals. But for the same price I could have used other airlines."
Cons: "I flew home on the LATAM600 Lima to LAX. My flight was suppose to leave noon on May 25. Unfortunately we were delayed until noon the following day, May 26. I understand these matters are out of attendant's control, but the changes were not communicated in English and everyone was extremely slow to get us situated. Our flight was officially canceled at 5:30 pm, and it took five more hours for the attendants to get us to a hotel. In the morning, the transportation was not communicated well that I missed the bus. During all this, they never tried to re-book anyone either. I would pass on flying LATAM in the future."
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Pros: "First of all, all of the information regarding the flight listed the carrier as Latam. However, the flight was actually an American flight. Based on the confusion I missed my outgoing flight. Thereafter I purchased a oneway ticket to Medellin on another airline only to learn that they cancelled my return flight. They wanted to charge me almost $600 to rebook! I ended purchasing a ticket with different carrier. Money paid to Latam was wasted."
Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"
Pros: "Once I was aboard my flight in Lima LA 2514 the attendants were helpful."
Cons: "When I arrived to Jorge Chavez the ticket counter was down. I waited for 20 minutes and Brunella eventually gave me a boarding pass. The pass was hand written and missing information but she assured me it would be fine. When I attempted to go through security they informed me this wasn't a boarding pass and was missing information. They said I would have to go back downstairs to the desk again. have a visible disability that affects the way I walk, and typically I do not require a wheelchair. I give myself enough time to get to my destination, but thanks to Brunella I was running incredibly late. I finally arrived though my flight was then rerouted to Orlando due to weather conditions at Miami and never arrived in Miami. The pilot of this flight LA2514 decided he was done and wouldn't fly there at all. The passengers were informed they would take buses to Miami."
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."
Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "flight hostess attention"
Cons: "Latam gives wrong information about connexions. The plane seats extremely uncomfortable. Attendant gave a tissue paper to client to clean her pulling table because it was dirty. They didn't apologized and asked traveler to clean the table instead. Miss connection with the flight from Miami to New York and no help from LATAM personnel at all. This is an airline that at one point it was the best and now is the worst. It is important to clarify with passenger about passing inmigration and aduana and the distance from international to national departures!!"
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "Not much since not only were we screened by the airport authorities but also by Latam. I purchased some water after security but had to leave it since they would not allow it on the plane. Had they let us know about this sooner I could have saved money."
Cons: "The Latam personnel who searched our bags prior to boarding put on gloves which I though was very good. The bad part was that I saw 2 members of the search party sneeze into the gloves and touch their noses without changing gloves. How disgusting!!! Never Latam again! I would rather pay a few dollars more and not put up with this health violation."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flew on time."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously small. I had a more comfortable seat from Charlotte to Miami than the 8 hour flight to Santiago. There should be a law against someone sitting in that type of seat for 8 hours!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Weak Service"
Pros: "The planes were new and immaculate, seats were comfortable, we were welcomed by the flight crew upon embarking, and there was a wonderful selection of entertainment."
Cons: "The food selection was rather light, especially for those with celiac issues and or vegetarian."
Pros: "Good crew, good service and nice food. Great selection of movies"
Cons: "worst service ever"
