Not much

I was asked to move seats to let a family sit together. Guess I should have said no. The crew moved me to a seat without a working entertainment system. After several promises or perhaps lies the system still did not work. After the third request to fix it, halfway through the flight I got an insincere statement of "you could sit just somewhere else" from the flight attendant and then he skipped over me for the beverage. No more Avianca for me.

Some of the ground personnel tried their best to aleviate the situation.

It was total chaos at the check in. Airport personnel took too long to put things in order. All flights were delayed for 3hrs ave. It was not proncipally the fault of the airlines though, since all airlines at gru airport were affected.

The VIP lounge was excellent, the plane, the crew, the pod, the food, the in flight movies, the time departing and arriving was excellent.

A flight from Chile to Brazil had stewardess who know exactty how to serve but did not speak either spanish nor english which I found quite surprizing. But as I said, excellent service.

Everyone was pleasant and treated us nice. Flight was on time.

In San Jose Costa Rica there was one employee checking in general boarding passengers and three employees checking in elite passengers. There were approximately 50 passengers in general boarding (one hour wait time) and no more than 6 elite passengers at any given time during my wait in line.

If you are on a seat at the back, it takes too long to get off because the people in front especially first class, take their sweet time getting their luggage while the rest have to wait. Then my contacting flight only had 22 minutes to transboard.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.

The fares displayed include all taxes and fees for economy class travel and were found by the provider in the last 72 hours. Seats are limited and may not be available on all flights and days.
