Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"
Pros: "Almost as soon as we finished taking off, we were landing. A one-hour trip doesn't let you really love or hate anything."

Cons: "Finding the plane"

Pros: "You're kidding!!!"
Cons: "Seating 3 across. the passenger on the isle seat got served and the other passenger and myself were ignored. NO SERVICE!"

Pros: "surprisingly spacious seats. plane felt brand new. on screen entertainment was great, and relieved to have charging inputs for my device in the seat."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and we missed our connection. Wondering why all the shuttles were parked and unavailable when you knew there were connection s that were tight."
Cons: "I came from a long trip from France, the seat I was assigned was not reclinable, close to the restroom. I was totally exhausted from the previous flight, not able to sleep at all and when I tried to stretch my legs by sitting sidewards on the aisle a crew member keep bothering me to keep my legs out"
Cons: "Make sure the customers have the right gate in the boarding pass, I almost missed the plane because of that thanks to a Copa'employee who gave me the wrong gate"
Pros: "Boarding process, inflight service"
Cons: "Flight was canceled, was booked on flight 812, that flight was also canceled. I didn’t get to Quito until 24 hours later. Customer service was terrible in terms of providing accurate information to passengers."
Cons: "The crew nerds ti ve More people person, their Attitude toward the Passangers was rude in More than one time"

Cons: "Everything was awesome keep doing the same great job thanks :)"
Pros: "Very nice crew especially when I got sick. Entertainment was also good."
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. There should have been ac, easy access to water and a bathroom once through gate security. Also out of our group of five, three of us were moved up to business class. It was nice that they got that but it would’ve been more fair if the whole group could have also."
Pros: "The whole experience was great. Pleasant crew, food excellent. I will recommend this airline for future trips."
Cons: "More affordable especially because this was a last minute trip because of death in my family."
Cons: "Better meals , conform in the seat and low the prices"
Pros: "Honestly nothing."
Cons: "Poor boarding process with no water or bathroom available after security at gate. Flight attendants were lazy. Did not provide drinks until 2 hours into the flight or good service. Additionally, did not tell kids playing on iPads with volume full blast to use headphones during take off and landing."
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: "The attention of the staff and punctuality at the departures"
Cons: "The food"
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!!"
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "Asked to move repeatedly between gates, and an hour late without explanation or apology"
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!!!"
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: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."
Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."
Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."
Cons: "Having more student deals."
Pros: "Crew is friendly, plane is new and clean"
Cons: "they charge to choose seats before hand, shouldn't be a privilege to do so"
Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."
Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"
Pros: "The people that work there were so kind! Very pleasant, I love the service! Everyone has a smile and make sure the customers were comfortable and save!"
Cons: "I like everything. No complain!"
Cons: "Disaster started at noon of the day of flight. Got notification flight delayed by 2 hours. That means I miss my coonection. Options for changes meant getting to destination 24 hours a later or with extra stop. I managed to buy a much better direct flight same day from different airline. And cheaper. I was so lucky. Getting refund for this disaster itinerary. But it worked out in the end."
Cons: "Person behind my seat was kiking! Luggage took for ever to be deliver."
Pros: "The crew was amiable. The plane was crowded but clean."
Cons: "The crew’s attitude. Forcing me to check my bag when there were plenty of spots overhead. Telling me my carryon, which fits perfectly under the seat, isn’t allowed to go under my seat. The crew and gate attendant were rude. Poor service. Poor flight."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Pros: "First class, good food, quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "People traveling with "emotional support animals" should board LAST, not first"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Did not cramp anywhere entire flight. Great air vent control."
Cons: "Boarding was weird. Many Passengers in the last rows put their bags up by row 20 so that made boarding and disembarking slower and harder as we had to go forward extra rows to use the back empty bins and then fight against traffic to get back to our seats. Passing bags up when leaving or waiting to"
Pros: "Customer service was acceptable"
Cons: "Flights were cancelled and had to take another airline. Bags were also lost for 5 days!"
Pros: "The seat and entertainment were good!"
Cons: "The female flight attendant in business had a serious attitude problem! She made us feel that she was doing us a favor! My wife never received her coffee or her silverware. I had to ask the male flight attendant who was very courteous."
Pros: "The crew tries."
Cons: "Planes are just uncomfortable and the airlines have a monopoly on long distance travel."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
