Pros: "Fly on time, nice food."
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!!"
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: "None"
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: "Crew"
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."
Pros: "The staff was nice"

Pros: "Nothing"
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."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "The flight to Bogotá was fine."
Cons: "The flight home was cancelled w/o warning."

Cons: "Everything."

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"
Pros: "The personnel was excellent, they were friendly and very accommodating."

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."

I followed the baggage allowance explained on kayak website and on Aerolineas Argentinas. I took a bicycle which is free and i pay $100 to packed it as Aerolineas wanted. When I arrived it was a Delta flight and they told they don't allow bicycles and that i had to play $150. Aerolineas website and kayak clearly says that bicycles were free on my flight. I show the agent my ticket and that no where it said delta to consider what he was saying since it is an alliance but i was not informed about it. He said no and after wait there for a while before boarding i kindly ask to speak with a supervisor and the denied it and disappeared. I request a refund of my fee to you for providing incorrect information."

Pros: "Everything was fine. Delta did a great job."
Cons: "The kid screaming in my ear for 3 hours"
Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat.

Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"
Cons: "More leg room wouldn’t hurt!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"

Pros: "The Flight Personnel was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Received sky boarding despite having a seat near the front. I like the smaller plane because there was plenty more leg room where I was (9c).

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.

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."

Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."
Pros: "Every employee is super helpful and the airline is family friendly. Airplanes are always new and clean. The meals are always good as far as airplane food goes. They have a generous baggage policy and unlike other airlines the airport departure tax is included in the fare. They serve the customers unlike the domestic airlines."
Cons: "Overhead bins on the inside rows are a bit on the small side."
Pros: "Super-friendly staff. Thanks!"
Cons: "Crying baby next to me! (not the airlines fault though haha!)"
Pros: "I prefer being given my own bottle of water and wine, the cup sizes are too small. Food is ok, not great."
Pros: "Overall the flight was excellent and the crew were very charismatic and always with a smile."
Pros: "The plane was super clean comfortable and with good entertainment, food was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the plane wasn't there at time, those things happen and it's fine but they never told us what was happening. we had to wait in line for another hour, without any announcement."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Confort, sits to small"
Pros: "Collection of movies, and flight being ontime"
Cons: "Seats, food, flight attendants didn't enforce seats in upright positions while serving food."
Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Cons: "N/a"

There is no food being served at Gol due to COVID situation. Which is understandable but still disappointed because others airlines are offering.

There was a delay in NYC, so to take the connection in Miami I had to run across the airport. Then the flight delayed in Miami, and the schedule in GRU - São Paulo was too tight, so I missed the flight to Porto Alegre. When coming from international flights, the connection time needs to be more spaced because of immigration bureaucracy.

Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"
Cons: "Include the luggage into the price of the ticket, Brazilian airliners often charge luggage separately."
Pros: "The crew was realy nice"
Pros: "Did us a favor and made check in in the counter"
Cons: "Food was pretty basic....no entertainment whatsoever kids were desperate"
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better"
Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entreteiment"
Pros: "The space between sits in the airplane"
Cons: "The timing"
Pros: "Nothing about the airline Avoid if you can"
Cons: "Their customers service We were runnjngblate due to traffic but arrived with an hour before takeoff and they refused us to enter We had no bags to check in just hand luggage and they refused us to check in as their automatic check in service did not recognise our booking Total rubbish airline"
Cons: "The trip was awesome, Rio is a wonderful city, extremely hot but a beautiful city"
Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Pros: "Gogo entertainment system"
Cons: "At the boarding gate, passengers were asked to volunteer to leave the carry on to be stored downstairs. My carry on was returned all scratched and missing my name tag."

Pros: "Thanks"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The check in and punctuality of boarding, take off and arrival was excellent. The flight was enjoyable. I would travel again."
Cons: "I didn’t like the snacks."
Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."
Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."

Pros: "fast flight, cofy seats!"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and punctual."
Pros: "Equipe atenciosa Sistema de entreterimento funcionou bem. Comida boa."
Pros: "I had a plesent flight with good food and good service both ways, the flight timing and connection was very good and the pricing of the jurnay was good. I will defently use the company the next time when I am traveling the same route later. Best regards Jan Christian Nygaard,"
Cons: "I have no comments to add hear, because everything went fine."
Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bastante bien"
Cons: "casi perdemos el vuelo porque no nos podian despachar las valijas, nadie hablaba ingles o español para que nos podemos hacer entender y terminamos pagando el doble por despachar el equipaje"
Cons: "The width of the seats were too small."
Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No kosher food"
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Cons: "Flight extremely delayed, people accompaning crew boarded first and took space in the overhead, i tried to change seats no no one at the gate was willing to work"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"
Cons: "Flight time was changed quite substantially from the time when I bought the ticket, therefore I simply did not take the trip."
