Pros: "Plane was empty"
Cons: "Avianca lies that my full size carryon baggage won’t fit to try and change me more money. It fit in with ease like it always does. The gauges they use are vastly undersized and they know that as I had to argue with the boarding lady and the other employees quietly agreed with me."

Pros: "Plane was empty"
Cons: "Avianca lies that my full size carryon baggage won’t fit to try and change me more money. It fit in with ease like it always does. The gauges they use are vastly undersized and they know that as I had to argue with the boarding lady and the other employees quietly agreed with me."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "All ok"
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."
Cons: "Boarding very confusing. Meal consisted of a cheese sandwich, and that's it (I was flying business class). Seat was barely functional, cranky and unconfortable. This was my first and LAST flight with Avianca."
Cons: "Business clase Is no worthy"
Cons: "Better seats, crew that doesn’t disappear etc."
Pros: "Very good crew and service"
Cons: "Terrible food - no choices Terrible wines - no choices"
Pros: "The crew was awful, food horrible"
Cons: "Crew and food"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "The crew, and the service was great!"
Cons: "Our seats were in front of an exit aisle so we were not able to recline the seats. The people in front of us were able to, so we were very cramped! Had barely any room and had to sit upright the entire flight."
Pros: "Seats comfort"
Cons: "Crew attention. Food. Airport assistance. Boarding times. Take off on time"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and the plane was big and comfortable."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but I bring pillows, crew was nice"
Cons: "Was very warm"
Pros: "Flight was good as well as service at the airplane, DC to Bogota"
Cons: "Everything ok"
Cons: "They cancel the flight while waiting to board. They claimed mechanical problems. Which is a good reason to cancel. The problem is how they handled the entire situation. No empathy for those individuals who needed to fly due to the death of a loved one. Completely unorganized. No practical solutions in favor of the customer. Never Again!!"
Pros: "the flight was rather short once we actually got in the air."
Cons: "There was a half an hour delay from initial departure time. No explanation was given to the passengers."
Pros: "On time and efficient. Was a good flight, with comfortable seating"
Cons: "No vegan/vegetarian food options"
Pros: "I liked the flight itself, that was fine."
Cons: "Terrible service. Had to book the same flight twice as I had made a mistake with dates and couldn't swap out or get refunded. Was then told my surfboard would cost a further $40 from an agent, however when I arrived to check in they told me it was $100USD. Really bad service."
Pros: "That the flight was on time"
Cons: "The food, and they told me I should pick up my baggage at Guayaquil but I had to pick it up in Quito"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was switched. Seats given away. Were placed on other flights arriving to our destination 7 hours after we were suppose to. Horrible experience. We didn’t travel through city we were suppose to. Worse flying experience in years. Our seats had been confirmed upon booking which apparently means nothing."
Pros: "Great plane. Good entertainment. Punctuality was remarkable."
Cons: "Boarding process and check in at Bq is mediocre at best. Yes, airport presents major challenges due to the reconstruction, but major challenge requires extra organization and planning."
Pros: "hard to find something to like after taking 26 hours to complete a trip that should have lasted less than 8 hours."
Cons: "Delays!! Technical issues, late crew, the list goes forever. Ground staff could not care less and attempted to hide information."
Cons: "A rating of one start is too much for this airline. Avianca caused me to miss my flight in LAX, refused to help me reach my ultimate destination for which I paid them hundreds of dollars to do, nor did they offer to credit my losses for which they were responsible. Customer Service was as useless as the individuals in person that I dealt with. I never made it to my destination because I was forced to return home to San Francisco, unable to see my wife-to-be in Brasil. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "I liked the food service on this very short trip, including a very heavily poured rum and coke!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour."
Cons: "I was not notified that departure time was changed, it was put ahead one hour and almost lost the flight."
Pros: "It was a fast flight. Overall good."
Cons: "The lines to check in the luggage in Barranquilla Colombia took long although there was not that many people. Overall not that much time, the boarding process in Boston was fast an friendly ."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The service.with this airline is mediocre and they want to steal money from you no matter what you bring. The only problem is that is the only colombian airline that owns every flight schedule in the country. I wish there was another company."
Pros: "The staff in the Cali airport were helpful in getting a new ticket for me when I couldn't make my connecting flight after the initial delay."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed minutes before boarding in Cali, Colombia and I wasn't going to make my connecting flight in Bogota so I had to be given a new flight."
Pros: "The open my bags and take out a personal staff the my bags and the bags it’s was broken . I️ did a report about in the airport"
Cons: "They open my bags and take out a personal staff and the bags it’s was broken . I️ did a report in the airport . My name William ORTIZ . Owvvnyc@gmail.com"
Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "Waiting for immigration purposes, due to crowed area"
Pros: "Reasonable choice of entertainment. Clean."
Cons: "Food poor. Not enough drink. Hold up in tunnel for boarding - long hold up for children and passengers over 60."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable. They cancelled my original flight and gave me 2 stops. When I tried to call customer service, I waited in the phone for 5 hrs and no one ever picked up. I gave up my seat as they asked and they told me I would get an aisle seat, instead I got a middle seat and they said they can’t change it back."
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable on both flights for such a duration... The layover/transfer in Bogota was chaotic, and rushed. My luggage did not make it to the final destination, so I am here with none of my belongings :("
Pros: "The crew and ither travelers were good"
Cons: "For a 10 hour flight it felt like there was no room for your legs and I am quite short"
Cons: "When you are selling a fly with connections, there must be at least 2 hours bewteen flyes, I was running like crazy to not lose my fly."
Pros: "The airline staff was very courteous, tv and a good variety of choices to watch for FREE, something that other airlines does not provide."
Pros: "- boarding the plane was efficient and well organised - airline staff were friendly - when my flight was canceled I was sent to a hotel and didn't have to wait around in the airport - comfortable with plenty of room, pillows and blankets"
Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"
Pros: "After decades of near weekly air travel, I had no expectation of being wowed by an airline. Until Avianca. What a refreshing experience! The seats were comfortable and clean; and their complimentary in-flight entertainment was first-rate. All that for a surprisingly reasonable fare."
Pros: "The check in staff moved us to an earlier flight from Cartegna to Bigots so we wouldn't have to rush to make our Bogita to New York flight. Very nice of them & much appreciated. We flew Avianca 8 times over the past 11 days thru Peru & Colombia & had great experiences all the way around."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "The flight attendants had bad attitudes, were unhelpful and the food was non-edible. The bathroom fixtures were broken and the crew did not replenish the toilet paper."
Pros: "Very efficient. On time. Competent."
Pros: "Great trip. Boarding was efficient. Small plan for a long trip. Seat was comfortable, but on an A319 for a 5 hour trip is stretching it. Either way the crew was great and the service was good."
Pros: "Nice planes"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Tuvimos que dormir en Bogotá, por asuntos médicos,la aerolínea nos trato súper bien, se encargaron de nosotros totalmente, eso no tiene precio."
Cons: "Un poco los retrasos en salida."
Pros: "The airplane was comfortable. The food not so good."
Cons: "Bogota's airport is horrible, doesn't have enough signs to let you know which gate is your flight. The staff is rude and unfriendly."
Cons: "As I arrived to check in I was notified that I would not be able to fly to San Jose from Colombia because I did not have the yellow fever shot which Costa Rica requires from flights coming from Colombia. Even though I am an American citizen.And when you receive the shot you must stay in Colombia for 10 days before you can leave the country.i don't understand why one is allowed to purchase a ticket from Colombia to Costa Rica without proof of the required vaccination.I didn't even receive a simple notification to receive the vaccination before my trip.Now I am still in Colombia.Already down an extra unexpected $500 and will miss work back in the states for not being able to return home on time.An airbnb reservation will be lost in Costa Rica which was prepaid for 5days.Worst of all I'm stuck in Colombia spending unexpected money to survive and will not be able to visit my PAID trip to Costa Rica.So unfair and a hole I will have to dig myself out of when and if Im able to make it back home"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight from Santiago to Bogota so I had to travel for 15 more hours."

Flight attendants were excellent.

Flight attendants are so overworked so when I see the their frowning faces barking orders at us I just try to be sympathetic but really, the days of happy flying seem gone.

Getting a response for my entertainment unit to be rebooted took almost an hour! One flight attendant walked right by with my wife’s call light ON! smh

Cons: "Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane"
Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Pros: "Crew was nice. The tv/movie technology was fantastic!! Huge selection of movies that made the time fly by, and very easy to use as opposed to my other flight over. Food was good. I love that you get tons of food and drinks (more food than I could eat actually)."
Cons: "I couldn't get both of my boarding passes printed in London so I had to get it from an agent in Minneapolis. I hate that it's so hard to get a seat assigned and a boarding pass before the trip."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Afert we have to comeback to the GATE in Atlanta,the next Aiplane was good and the flight was great."
Cons: "Well,the trouble was not the Crew or the Air Steward,but it was something wrong with the start the engine."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "Super nice gate agent, doing her best to get us out on time but very clear spoken and nice about it!"
Cons: "No monitors for entertainment!? FA was just ok, nothing bad but sure not a standout."
Pros: "The stewards did an awesome job leaving me a chocolate snack and an chicken wrap while I was sleeping!! Definitely a pleasant surprise to wake up to"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Cons: "The worst"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Very hot ride"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "---"
Cons: "Delayed, for close to 6 hours and missed our connection"
Cons: "Alhamdoulillah"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
Pros: "The aircraft was much better than the originally plan which was delayed and then cancelled. Comfort seats and cleaner aircraft was a nice surprise after 5.5hrs of stranded time at the CLE airport."
Cons: "Delayed for 5.5 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 6 pm flight left at 8:19. Debris wasn't cleaned from plane between flights. Want some French fries? Lady had two barking dogs in first class. I was in first class. It wasn't worth the extra money we paid to be in first class."

Pros: "I wish I could give more feedback but I was unable to get to my connecting flight."

Cons: "Seating."
Pros: "The welcome abord"
Cons: "I remember once they asked who wanted stay and spend a night in Panamá, I accepted the offer in Panama, but when the flight that was in my regular schedule was about to leave, they told me that I needed to abord because it was no possible to stay and I made big movement with my luggage and they putted back my luggage in the plane. That was one of the bad moments I experienced with Copa once."
Cons: "After reporting that things were stolen...Copa deny my claimed."

Pros: "Service and on time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Long delay living PTY"
Pros: "it was nice to actually get a meal. that doesnt happen in the us anymore. i was able to check a bag without a ridiculous $50 charge. the first time i had checked in years and it was very convenient. reminded me of how flying used to be before they all became buses in the sky, and for a very reasonable price. the staff were all very friendly from the gate agent to the flight attendants. also, a free drink is a lovely touch. would definitely fly this airline again."
Cons: "i had no problems honestly. my most pleasant flightin a while and i fly frequently"
Pros: "Smooth Flight great drinks and food"
Cons: "On my return flight home, they wouldn't accommodate adjusting my itinerary because I wasn't feeling well. I was willing to pay change fee for 1 layover instead of the 2 layovers on my original itinerary. They wanted to charge me $700 which was greater than my original ticket. So I flew on the original itinerary at started my travels @ 7am on Monday. Flight from Bogotá to Barranquilla w/Avianca airlines was great. In Barranquilla I had a 4 hr layover, checked in w/Copa agent and he said my bag was on plane. In Panama, there was a 1.5 hr layover so I assumed no issues getting my luggage to the correct connection. The flight from Panama was delayed by 40 mins w/no explanation. We just sat on plane. They only played one older movie, plane was old and they did 1 beverage service w/meal for a 5.5 hour flight. I finally arrived back to ORD @ 12:15 am Tuesday. I waited for my luggage in baggage claim for 35 mins. It doesn't arrive and I ask attendant, who brushes me off and says this is the claim for Copa. She disappears for 30-40 mins. I finally see her walking back into international baggage claim (over an hour has passed that I've been in baggage claim) and tell her my luggage did not arrive. She asks me for my claim ticket then proceeds to say "oh yes, I was informed your bag did not make it." I'm upset because it's 1:40am and she could have saved me an hour if she would have helped me when I first asked. I also am curious how an airline loses my bag twice."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cabin crew based in South American countries don't speak a word of English."
Pros: "Good food"
Pros: "nice staff."
Cons: "delayed leaving and arriving. no entertainment."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Servicio"
Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "Airplane clean, staff was friendly, couteous and mostly bilingual. Food and drinks were appreciated and of good quality. We were allowed to check 3 bags without addt'l charges. Definitely felt welcomed and would fly Copa again."
Cons: "Long wait at airport check in so glad we arrived almost 3 hrs before our flight. Staff was pleasant but for some reason desk agent told us that the flight was completely sold out and without telling us, put my wife and I in middle seats in different rows. We were at airport very early and didn't realize until boarding what she had done. In flight staff assisted on the flight and moved us to an exit row where we were able to sit together. Luckily I counted at least 6 open seats and in the end we were happy. I'm not sure why she did what she did. Ironically, she (gate agent) was incredibly nice. Maybe it was simply and honest mistake."
Pros: "Easy and fast connections. Flight on time.great"
Pros: "So much turbulence! Plus the flight attendant wasn't very friendly."
Pros: "Total failure deception! I was denied access to the flight because of going into Peru they said I had to have a round-trip ticket and Copa would not let me on board. I was told this and after standing in line for over an hour waiting to check in at almost midnight in LAX. I spent hours on line I spent hours on the phone trying to recoup the situation. they wanted to charge me $325 to make changes plus other expenses of the airfare. I missed important connections in Peru. I am applying for a retirement visa there I should've been allowed to deal with immigration in Peru . However if it is the regulation of that airline that I'm not allowed in there without a round-trip ticket why did kayak sell it to me? Kayak cost me $539 and change not to mention a week and a half late getting to Peru! Customer service was just pretty much ridiculous I spent a lot of time on hold so somebody could go ask somebody who Ask somebody else a question. I could understand no refund however that was just downright not fair kayak and Copa airline basically screwed me over."
Cons: "See the above"
Cons: "Flight was cramped no space on airplane shoulder to shoulder with the person next to you"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Serve some type of beverage with out charging a lot"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Airport is a disaster. It is a single gate, bamboo-walled open air space with about half the seating necessary for a flight. Latam charges almost $2 even for a cup of “coffee” that is really just hot water, powdered Nescafé and powdered milk! It hardly seems worth the effort and really slows down service."
Cons: "Have a screen to watch movies."
Pros: "The pilots were polite and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Could provide a menu card, like every other airline. Instead of listing every single option to everyone on the plane. And maybe use bigger cups that hold more than 3-4 ounces?? Especially when the airport takes away peoples liquids (see below). Ridiculous. Not necessarily with flight, more with Lima airport “security” - they took away ALL bottled liquids more than 3 oz. AT THE GATE. Even bottled water purchased 20 feet from the gate. And they couldn’t explain why. Just got a bunch of shrugs. Why take sealed water purchased at their own airport away before an international 8+ hour flight???"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They force the passengers to tag our bagagge ourself and give wrong directions to do this. And they tried yo force you to pay to change sits."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Everithing else"
Cons: "We got off onto a shaky set of stairs that surely would have been a safety violation in the states."
Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "For the 2 hours flight, I had to endure some strong stench coming from fellow passengers. Extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "This app is fraud"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "My three LATAM flights were all on-time, well-piloted and efficiently run. They are not responsible for airport-related issues in Lima. Taking off at over 11.00 feet and landing at sea level must be like having most of the air leak out of your tires while driving, but these guys take that in stride."
Cons: "Gate assignments in Lima tend to change and be posted late, but this is not under LATAM control."
Pros: "Food great"
Cons: "Everything exelente"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Cons: "Person behind my seat was kiking! Luggage took for ever to be deliver."
Pros: "Q z bsv"
Cons: "Gate changes were not announced and the crew didn't help passengers get their luggage in place to allow for enough room for the last passengers to board. Many passengers places small items that belong below the seat in the over head. I had to ask passengers myself who's bag is this to get them to put it under the seats in front of them."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Pros: "Flying. They were able too get us replacement tickets at no charge but the flight was 2 hours later."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed with no explanation of why and then we missed our connecting flight because of it. They wouldnt let us get on the plane even though the plane was still at the terminal"
Pros: "Flight was on time crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "Seat pitch was very tight, more like a budget airline, but the flight was short so OK"
Cons: "Lost my bags"
Pros: "They rebooked us out of Orange County, a different airport, without extra charge."
Cons: "Seemed like they should have known the plane would have been late when they told us all good eight hours earlier, as plane was still in Lima when we arrived at LAX and hence our flight was cancelled but only after driving up to LA and waiting at check in an hour."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."
Cons: "Plane was 6.5 hours late taking off. I missed a meeting in Cusco because overall I arrived 8 hours past my scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Average airline with poor customer service. The transit was too short and lost my luggage. Customer service was very poor and recovering my bags was an epic and expensive endeviour!!"
Pros: "Staff is on top of everything on every aspect, from beginning to end. My favorite airline, far away from the rest, crew seems eager to help and make your trip the best possible experience."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Poor service. Not too friendly crew. I normally fly American but being myself Chilean, I thought I'd give Latam a chance but was disappointed. I was travelling with my daughter and 2 yr old grandaughter and felt that they didn't give us any special attention in regards to baby.I used to be a flight attendant and In my day the standards of service were SO MUCH HIGHER!! I Will not fly Latam next time."
Cons: "The people making announcements need to slow down. I understand some Spanish but hey were talking so fast it was difficult, then when they repeated in English, their pronunciation wasn't the best but again because they were speaking so fast it was difficult to understand."
Pros: "The food, crew, and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was poor. The flight was delayed and there was not explanation at the gate that there was a delay or why. I don't understand why our carry on bags needed to be searched. We were put in a line with only one person doing the bag checks while the other line had over two people checking bags."
Pros: "Solid crew, clean planes, safe pilots. Exceptional staff support at LATAM check-in at LAX."
Cons: "I arrived 3 hours early to my flight, which I had been notified that morning of a 2hr delay. Fortunately the woman who checked me in realized there was 1 seat available on the last flight that would get me to Lima in time for my connection flight (departing same time as my flight pre-delay). She personally got me to the front of the line, and ran with me just about to the gate, where I caught a shuttle to the plane. If she hadn't done so, and if I hadn't checked in so early, I would have been forced to stay in Lima 24hrs, despite buying a rightful seat and having reservations in Buenos Aires. It is appalling and unacceptable that y'all continue to overbook flights, causing incredible trouble, inconvenience and potential harm to your customers. For a service that costs so much, the only acceptable delays are weather and mechanically related. if it hadn't been for amazing staff immediately, I would've been furiously waiting in a city I didn't need or want to be in. Customer service will continue to grow your business or impede it negatively-- how y'all act is up to you. I appreciate how well I was taken care of by several kind individuals."
Pros: "The standard domestic flight, not a lot of room but not as cramped as it could have been. Speedy from the time we boarded to disembarking."
Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."
Pros: "LA TRIPULACION"
Cons: "EL EQUIPAJE NO LO MANDARON HASTA DESTINO FINAL Y SE PERDIO"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in LAX, and consequently I missed my connection to Cuzco. My luggage was also misplaced"
Pros: "They took every measure to make sure me and my family had the most comfortable flight possible. I will be sure to fly LatAm again. Thank you so much!"
Pros: "I prefer being given my own bottle of water and wine, the cup sizes are too small. Food is ok, not great."
Cons: "The flight from Lisa was cancelled and the 18 hour wait in Lina was horrible!!! All day at the airport!"
Pros: "No podría decir que me gustó nada"
Cons: "Mi primera experiencia en Latam no fue nada buena, mi vuelo latam2005 de lima-cusco el día 3/10/16 se retrasó por 2 horas debido a un supuesto mantenimiento de ultima imprevisto, creo que son cosas que deben detectarse antes para hacer un cambio de avión y no hacer al pasajero perder su tiempo...el 2do vuelo de cusco-lima Latam 2020 día 6-10-16 también se retrasó con 1 hora debido a que viajaban demasiadas personas y necesitaban voluntarios para viajar en el próximo vuelo. La verdad no creo volver a viajar con Latam."
Pros: "Overall the flight was excellent and the crew were very charismatic and always with a smile."
Pros: "Everything!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Old airplane"
Pros: "The meal offerings given my "special" menu request (vegetarian) was better than expected, portions were of a nice quantity, the food wasn't bland, and in terms of variety they offered a good food selection. The available entertainment catalog (movies, TV shows, etc) was vast, and included recently released films. I also love that LAN offers pillows, blankets (of good, warm material) and headsets. The crew was attentive and helpful. The plane plane was clean, which is expected to be but not always ends up being that way."
Cons: "The plane looked like an older model, which is not a problem itself, the problems were: my seat was missing the cup holder ring (looked like it broke) meaning no place to keep a cup to drink water throughout the flight. The remote for the "t.v."/entertainment system, that is nestled on the side of the seat, wasn't working and the touch screen glitched (it would freeze, or kick me back to the root menu while I was browsing through options) Small technical problems that given the $$ flights cost, one expects them to work properly."
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Pros: "I appreciated the fact that the cabin crew worked to seat my husband and I together. There was a bit of shuffling done but they managed to do it without inconveniencing anyone. Thank you!"
Cons: "And it would have been good if more water was on offer. Service was somewhat rushed."
Cons: "I have a very bad experience. The first flight was delayed, so many people including me missed the connecting flight. They kept us till 2AM at the airport and made us take out all our luggage before taking us to a hotel. Then, there was a Flight leaving the same day at noon, but instead of acommodating us there, they made us wait till 11:59 PM for the next flight. They told us that it was a direct flight as it was initially scheduled from Lima to La Paz, but that was not true as we had to stop in Santa Cruz first. To sum up, there was a 28-hour delay in total. I was supposed to get to La Paz on Jan. 28 and ended up arriving on the 29. No explanations were given, but it is clear that they oversold as all flights were full. Avoid this airline if you can."
Pros: "Having a vegetarian option"
Cons: "No salad?! Fruit or vegetable! Something was missing."
Pros: "They did not control computer and electronic devices, so I was able to watch a movie ON MY PHONE without having to turn off at all, neither take off or landing."
Cons: "No food - just a Bon-o-Bon. No coffee. Where do you see an airline with no coffee?"

The plane was very late arriving at the gate which made me miss my connecting flight which made me miss my shuttle. I’m very upset and will be calling American Airlines

Newer airplane!

Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "Seats in so called " business class " barely reclined ...the whole plane was packed full , no empty seats , the Miami airport is one of the worst in the world as well... Will never be flying on American again if I can help it.,,"
Cons: "Please take any other airline if at all possible and avoid MIA airport too....use Ft. Lauderdale if possible..."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Cons: "The airlines need to board and deboard by group number."
Cons: "The seats a but squishi. Everything else ok. Thank you."
Pros: "Newer plane, pretty comfortable seats. I like the 2-4-2 seat alignment. Flight arrived at destination about 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Plane was very hot; luggage took forever after landing."
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "The plane was nice. The captain was friendly and informative, and the flight was great."
Cons: "The food was pretty mediocre with a small soggy sandwich that I didn't bother to eat. They force you to watch a very long and extremely boring trailer for Disney. You can't turn it off and have to sit through one bugman movie trailer after another."
Pros: "Crew was great! Flight was smooth and on time!"
Cons: "Air conditioning!!!"
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "On time"
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and kept us informed of ongoing issues."
Cons: "There was not enough fuel to make the connection in Charlotte as well as mechanical issues with getting the luggage off the plane resulting in being stuck over night. Also they lost my bag."
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "Attentive Flight Attenants"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Cons: "The plane was a little too hot."
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Cons: "Los espacios entre asientos son muy incómodos."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were denied boarding to our flight because the gate agent said we were late to the podium. We were there 10 minutes prior to departure. The jetway was still full of passengers. There was no reason she did not let us on other than she wanted to punish us for being late to the podium. We missed our connecting flight and had to rent a car to get home. Corporate American Airline customer relations was awful to work with. They did not care."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The kiosk had no where to enter my DoD number to get precheck. There was also no option to select military baggage. Due to the lack of options on the kiosk I had to wait in the customer service line for almost an hour. The flight was fine. Then my baggage turned out to be flying on a much later flight so it has to be shipped to me. I am very unsatisfied and disappointed with this airline."
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight,so even though I had a ticket and was NOT standby, I almost didn't make it on even though there were seats available (after two people forfeited their seats) bc they were worried about over-weighting the plane. Then they packed us like sardines into the back row of the plane."
Cons: "It was delayed for about a half an hour. Other than that it was great"
Pros: "New plane, great entertainment. Good service! Clean plane ."
Pros: "The touchscreen was pretty awesome"
Cons: "Loud passengers"
