Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The food could’ve had been better."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Even though there were flight/seats available, Avianca did not make them availability to flight changes and only for new reservations. Extremely disappointed at you fraudulent business practices."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight had a 3hr delay."
Cons: "Our trip was from NY to Cartagena connecting to Medellin. Our original lay over was suppose to be for 2 hours it became 7 hours!!! I missed the time in renting my car. That office closed at 8pm We also missed most of the remaining day to our day at the hotel Los Recuerdos in Guatape. Just awful!!"
Pros: "The business class seats on the JFK to Bogota section were excellent, while the seats from Bogota to Santiago were not as good...it was also a smaller plane."
Cons: "Would have liked to fly the Bogota to Santiago portion on the same aircraft as the first part of the trip."
Cons: "It would make more sense to offer food and more drinks during the flight. At least water, as it is recommended by doctors. It is important to keep people hydrated"
Pros: "Nothing. And I've flown Avianca 4 times and tried giving it a chance."
Cons: "There is always some sort of problem. When I was in San Pedro they said the flight was delayed, then it never came. They did accommodate me with a hotel for the night which was nice after almost losing my job. The last and final time I used this airline I was at JFK 2 hours and 45 minutes ahead of time. I was there at 11:45 for a 2:20 flight. They told me I had missed my flight because I wasn't there 3 hours early. No where on my ticket did it say anything about that. There was a lot of people complaining and then they told me since I "missed' my flight I had to by a new ticket on the spot, leaving me with no option and a heafty fee."
Pros: "No delay in takeoff"
Cons: "Check in was incredibly slow, food was substandard"
Pros: "Big failed work in new york check-in account. After the 1 hour waiting, let us(who has ticket after the 01:00) the line with only one reason why it's so early and need to support other laters. Moreover, had lost my baggage."
Cons: "Big problem was with several hundreds travelers to Bogota, Sao Paulo for 23:10~40. Avianca accounts don't have any classification to avoid this type disorders problem. Had waited my bag on the band during 1 hour. But, wasn't arrived various travelers bag from new york."
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac in the plane."
Cons: "They moved the original flight (direct flight) for a flight with stop in bogota. They did this because the flight NYC-bogota was empty. They delay the flight nyc-medellin to mive the people and fill the bogota flight. I need to arrive at 1 because i was attending a funeral and i couldnot attend the funeral"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything first every single flight taken was delayed by at least 30 mins and not on time, then they played last minute rescheduleds in which they over booked by like twice the amount of people on flight and offer a mediocre 100 dollar travel voucher to make up for it to get on the next flight that’s 4 hours later. Since no one took that offer they ended up rescheduling it and stopping in other places to ale up for the lack of space, what was suppose to be a 6 hour flight turn in a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "The trip from New York to bogota, was excellent"
Pros: "Excellent service."
Cons: "I was told hours before my flight that my flight was delayed due to weather in the NYC area and that the new flight time was two hours later. There were no weather issues at this time. This delay made me miss my connection and the only option was for me to have a 24 hour layover in Bogota, Colombia. As a woman traveling alone this was not acceptable to me but I had no other choice. I got a hotel room for the evening and tried to make the best of it. I was not offered any compensation for this inconvenience, nothing, not even an offer to pay for my hotel room. Similar things happened to three other people in my group that I was meeting in Peru all traveling from different locations. I lost an entire day in Peru because of this. On my return flight Avianca changed the times as well and I was forced to take an earlier fight home the day before I was scheduled to leave. I therefore lost a total of two days of my vacation because of Avianca and they did NOTHING to compensate me for it. STAY AWAY FROM THIS AIRLINE!!!"
Cons: "The plane was small and not clean."
Pros: "The food was mediocre."
Cons: "The customer service was terrible. Our connecting plane had not left yet and they did not let us on. They proceeded to tell us that our only option was to stay the night and take another flight the next day. Us and 10 other people had to get into an argument with the staff in order for something to be done. After begging, they finally said they would put us on an earlier flight the following morning and they put us in a hotel. The staff did not care about us or our missed flight/wasted money that we paid for the hotel at our destination that night. It took 30 minutes for a manager to give us the time of day. Horrible experience. It's really shocking that this is how the company treats its customers."

Pros: "Fairly new airplane seats with TV screens, USB slots, complimentary headphone."
Cons: "Flight was moved 6 hours with no explaination a few weeks before (apparently there's an on going strike), so we had to pay to switch our connecting flight. The day of, there was a 2hr delay so we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok. Drink selection was mediocre. Very limited TV and movie selection. Probably should have stuck with my instincts to fly with a larger carrier."
Cons: "The food was very bad. There was a pilot strike and the airline was not willing to give any compensation even though they placed me in a flight ten hours later than the originally programed and the delay was a problem for me."

Cons: "Old plane -"
Cons: "There were time flight changes and they were not clear. I have a bad knee and was forced to wait 5 hours in Bogota for a flight out to Cali. Unacceptable!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled and moved forward two days. An additional layover was added. I had to rebook a new flight completely and almost missed my vacation. This trip ended up costing me $1,000 more in travel and I have no idea if I will be getting a refund from the airline. I am pissed."
Pros: "The flight to Bogotá was fine."
Cons: "The flight home was cancelled w/o warning."
Pros: "I was not told the my flight was delayed. Even worse, i called them and I found out all these. They tried to reschedule me with other company but I lost 5000 on other booking.

Pros: "They were all very nice and helpful. We received two meals and snacks. I had a blanket and pillow. Couldn't complain."
Cons: "I had requested the wheel chair service due to my bad knee. When it came to boarding everything was great but when I got off the plane, no one brought the wheel chair. I ended up having to walk and hurt my knee further. They were suppose to help with my bags but I guess that's only in the USA"

Cons: "Delayed 5h, missed all connections, no help from crew"
Pros: "In flight entertainment system was pretty good and boarding went smoothly"

Pros: "I enjoyed Everything except the layover"
Cons: "My 3 Hour layover was extended to Nine hours. The Peruvian airport offered me a hotel room i turned down. Peruvian gentleman on the plane just prior to landing was telling me how dangerous it is in Peru in the area surrounding the airport. I was given four hours of wifi coupons and coupons to a breakfast and lunch at a restaurant by our gate, where i was waited on poorly. Next time i may look for a layover in Florida."

Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."
