The flight never happened. Kayak you should know that as we asked you to get us a refund. I was told personally by Thew Avianca office in Cuenca that we are going to have to wait at least 4 months for the refund. This is not good enough. We are going to the credit card company, as obviously Kayak is not helping us with this issue. So HOW was my flight TERRIBLE !!!!!!!

Cons: "The time for boarding! They are leave one hour before!! That’s so wrong to do"
Pros: "They allow pre-boarding for over-65s! So much easier to hoist that carry-on bag to the overhead compartment when not blocking someone else! :) Avianca crew/ticket agents are SO helpful and pleasant. This was a delightful airline to discover! (This was a portion of my first trip booked on Avianca.)"
Pros: "The fact that I actually arrived to Bogotá tonight since in my 150 mins worth of phone calls + 7 itinerary revisions made over the wknd by Avianca, I honestly didn’t think I’d make it to Bogotá today"
Cons: "Empower and inform your phone customer service to actually be able to resolve customer questions and issues. Not ruin people’s vacations by changing their flight so many times and sending them illogical revised itineraries."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding and disembarking too, with a friendly crew!"

Pros: "pilots did a fantastic job flying the plane out of quito against the winds. check in women were great with communicating with me in writing as i am extremely hard of hearing. they also asked me where i wanted to sit instead of just assigning me. all staff were kind, courteous, and professional. loved being able to charge my phone in flight."

Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Pros: "Confortable and on time"
Cons: "The airport did not have the gate on the screens (airports fault). But when asking the crew of Avianca no one knew. We had to search for an office when they where boarding cause no one knew. Then they told us (and a group of other people) run to the gate (almost loosing the flight)."

Cons: "No permiten el ingreso a la única sala VIP del aeropuerto con programas de fidelización de compañías diferentes a las ecuatorianas."
Pros: "I was surprised and very disappointed to find out that last part of my business class ticket was economy.

Pros: "Nothing as we could not take the flight."
Cons: "Allowing the option to change your ticket date, but failing all debit and credit cards payments offered, actually means that they are not allowing flight changes due to COVID related issues like they say they do. We had to book new tickets with another airline to get home."

Cons: "Little late boarding and leaving. No explanation"
Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was great."

Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
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"
Pros: "The food improved a lot"
Cons: "They used to have great airplanes when it was LAN now the airplane was very old uncortable and the touchscreen barely worked. I used to like a lot LAN but now their quality is very bad. Also I traveled with my 3 year old son and they gave us separated seats. And I asked if we can have better seats for the next fly and they refuse because they supposed to be full but I notice close to me was a empty row and someone noticed that and move to it. They could made the things a little more easy with a mom with a toddler. They used to be more considered"

Terrible customer service will never fly Latam again"
Pros: "Awesome service, friendly staff and the Dreamliners are amazing. Thanks LATAM and thanks Kayak ... Great fares."
Cons: "My flight to Lima was delayed therefore I would miss the connecting flight to LAX. I learned of the delay by overhearing a conversation the employee was having with another passenger. No announcement was made, no options were presented to help the passengers with connection find a solution until we started demanding a solution. This ordeal started at 9pm and we did not make it out of the airport till 1:50am to a hotel for a 6am pickup back to the airport to start the process all over again."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."

Pros: "Mad good"
Cons: "It was swell"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Specially crew leader Sandra"
Cons: "It was delay. 2 hours."

Pros: "Short flight, everything on time"
Cons: "As we had two lines for boarding and only one lady attending us, boarding was kind of messy"
Cons: "When buying a flight price and the airline on which I fly are the two most important factors.... LAN transferred my flight to AVIANCA and the food was terrible and the flight attendants weren't very friendly in general. The experience was not very enjoyable"
