Flights to Ecuador have now resumed.
From December 22, all travelers arriving from the UK, Australia, South Africa and the EU are required to take an antigen test (rapid test) on arrival at the airport.
Special 'travel corridors' exist for tourists visiting the Galapagos. Foreigners wishing to enter the islands must present a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test for COVID-19, taken 96 hours prior to the date of departure to Ecuador. On arrival in Ecuador, tourists may be requested to take another PCR test, at their own expense. Tourists must also present a return flight and a safe passage document (‘salvoconducto’) issued by the Ministry of Tourism to be exempt from doing 14 days of self-isolation on the islands. The tour operators or hotels are responsible for arranging this safe passage document on behalf of tourists, given that visitors are required to have previous contracted travel and accommodation arrangements. The Galapagos Transit Control Card, will need to be filled out online at least 24 hours before the flight. On arrival in Ecuador you will be required to fill in a Health Status Declaration, including a local address.
Travelers must present a completed Health Form and a completed Immigration form as well as a negative PCR test for COVID-19 issued within 10 days before arrival. Travelers who are unable to provide a PCR test will be tested at the airport at their own expense.
Arriving travelers may be subject to random rapid antigen testing conducted at the airport, regardless of whether a negative COVID PCR test is provided. If the rapid antigen test is positive, they must isolate for 10 days at a shelter designated by the Ministry of Health. As of January 11, it is no longer permissible to perform the isolation at a private residency or hotel.
Travelers from the UK, Australia, South Africa and the EU will have to carry out obligatory self-isolation for 5 days. Non-residents of Ecuador will have to self-isolate in hotels determined by the local authorities, at their own expense. Residents can isolate in their home.
There are currently 22,598 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in EC and 14,623 deaths as of Jan 25 2021

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Despite the delay of almost 3 hours (which we were informed much earlier than getting to the airport at) the plane was 40% empty so can’t complain at the end of the day"
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "Racist flight attendant targeted only 3 black people on the flight for chairs, bags, etc... But the people right next to us on either side received no reprimand. Terrible exclusionary actions."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No food for a seven hour flight to Ecuador?? Insane"
Cons: "Old planes Small screens My remote control (BOS-FLL) didn’t work Wifi was slow Old plane for such a long flight (FLL-LIM). Only snacks on such a long flight?! International should give food."

Cons: "Not be over an hour delay and make us switch gates and planes"
Pros: "yes is beautiful"
Cons: "Comfortable seats, courteous flight crew. Easy boarding and organized."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "The check in process in DR"
Pros: "The captain was amazing although the flight was delayed."

Pros: "Terrible mis maletas no aparecen, pésimo servicio"
Pros: "They cancelled our flight 2 days before via e-mail allegedly because bad weather, but weather was fine. Agents were rude & did not offer help. We bought last minute tickets with Avianca, which costed $500 extra. We got a refund, but lost money because change of dates. Who is responsible for this?"
Cons: "Jetblue customer service had us waiting on the phone for 45 minutes, the virtual agent was also slow at answering and not help at all. They should have automatically put us on the next available flight, not cancel it without any choice. That is just bad customer service all together."
Pros: "The gay guys on the crew were very funny and entertaining."
Pros: "Wonderful experience with Jetblue"
Pros: "Flight was not cancelled"
Cons: "JetBlue is late again"
Cons: "My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked."
Pros: "Peaceful Great crew I just love Jet Blue"
Cons: "Can’t say"
Cons: "It really comfy and safe"

Pros: "The conditioning was working properly on this plane unlike the two Jet Blue planes I took down to San Juan. We were only delayed once on my trip back to Austin unlike the 8 times I was delayed on my trip down to San juan."
Cons: "Gate Staff made multiple claims on the flight down to P.R. that contradicted each previous statement in order to gold the airline unaccountable."
Pros: "The Entertainment was fine and I appreciated the Captain communicating with us that there would be bumps on the last part of the flight."
Cons: "This was the most unnerving, uncomfortable flight I have ever been on. I really do love Jetblue and I know that this particular flight doesn't define you. That being said I was sorry to have to have experienced this. Even sitting on the runway before taking off the ride was uncomfortable as we swerved our way to the take off position. The weather was nice and it felt so strange that were going back and forth as if the path was filled with sharp S-curves. Then the entire flight was bumpy as we went up and down and all around. I would say there was about 20 mins of smooth air the entire flight. Then there was the last 90 minutes which was absolutely terrifying. I know that the turbulence can't be helped but I do feel the Flight attendants were not very accommodating during it. I sat near the back and they just sat there and chit chatted about something they were meeting up to do later while people were up and about when the seat belt sign was on. Then there was a baby screaming for many hours and they never tried at all to help the parents or anything calm them. They mostly just sat in the back, complained it was bumpy and laughed about how people were agitated because of it. I found it to be so much more frustrating that in addition to the bumpy air, crying baby and passengers just roaming around we also had to deal with the attendants laughing about how uncomfortable we were. It was not what I have ever experienced before and I truly hope I never have to experience again on JetBlue."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No apologies for the delayed flight. Only some of the TV’s appeared to be working- unable to change channels or volume so reduced to watching the same video for 3+ hours. I have flown JetBlue numerous times so quite disappointed with this flight."
Pros: "Leg room was good, comfortable."
Cons: "A 4 hour delay with no explanation as to why. Also don't like that you don't give earbugs for the entertainment."
Pros: "the flight was 3 hours late, but I appreciate the $75 credit you offered!"
Cons: "my screen wasn't working, but the flight attendant moved me to a new seat when I asked"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly attendants."
Cons: "Boarding was longer than it should have been."
Pros: "I helped a girl who missed her flight and the attendant was very helpful."
Cons: "Cost of checking in a bag. The first 50 lbs. at $25.00 is fine but if you are 1 lb, over 50 lbs. having to pay $100.00 is to much, maybe $50.00 for 51 lbs. to 70lbs. and so on."
Cons: "The tv screen had a loose connection and was flickering like a strobe light. Would have been great if not for that"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was fantastic. The flight was delayed and made me worried about my connecting flight from LGB to SFO. They kept me up to date on its status and figured out a contingency plan."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.5 hours for mechanical issues, and the inflight entertainment was below average. Could watch live TV which was nice but the entertainment pamphlet in the seat back pocket stated that there were 3 movies available but I could not find them."
Pros: "The fight was smooth"
Pros: "No crash is big on my lists of likes. Plus very helpful staff from the Kiosk to boarding."
Cons: "The Fly-Fi didn't work and the snacks were OK but hot food is always better."
Cons: "Huge delays..."
Pros: "We had a maintenance delay which was handled well by the staff. They bought pizzas and gave out beverages. Then a credit for the flight. Amazing."
Cons: "Being delayed."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "All the announcements were in Spanish which was quite surprising even though most of the passengers were from DR but I had no idea what was going on half the time."
Pros: "The staff was amazing -- very friendly and made their customers feel welcomed and comfortable. Quentin was especially great. He helped me put my luggage in the overhead bins, and continuously made everyone laugh. Also he complimented my eyes and that was cool considering I was very tired and feeling pretty antisocial. Thank you for turning my morning around!"

Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."
Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."

Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "Every thing."
Cons: "All good"

Cons: "It's was good"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and very helpful! Boarding was quick and efficient, and everything stayed perfectly on time."

I had to fold my legs up just to squeeze into the space and when the seat in front of me reclined I had the hair of the person in front of me touching my face. Time for an update, especially for international flights."
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delayed flight No food/drink service offered"
Pros: "Everything was fine except what I didn't like."
Cons: "Damaged Luggage"
Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"
Pros: "The plane broke in D.C. I had to rent a car to finish the last leg of my trip. They probably won't reimbursement me for either. I try never to book with AA, but it was last minute and I didn't have a choice."

Pros: "too many gate changes and delays"
