Wingo changed departure time 3 times and kept us moving from one gate to a different one. A 1 one flight took me more than 8 hours. Don't fly wit Wingo, the worst experience ever
Nothing the vendor services and overall process was not an experience I would ever want to revisit again .

Pros: "Excellent attention, very good food. Very nice flight overall."
Cons: "Not charging me 340$ by threatening to cancel my return flight if I didn’t pay."

Pros: "Excellent service and on time"
Cons: "Food could be improved a bit more."
Pros: "More legroom on this flight & it was packed."
Cons: "The customs forms were outdated. Had to fill out the proper ones upon landing."
Pros: "Efficient and no hassle. Spacious leg room. On time."
Cons: "No complaints. Perhaps the crew could have smiled more."
Pros: "Fast and orderly boarding. Everything was as they described in their web page. Read carefully and you will know what to expect. On time and very attentive personal"
Cons: "None really. Is a low cost airline, do not expect amenities or entertainment or confort."
No English spoken but friendly enough and avians check in line was way short yet then bargain airline. Bought through Kiwi, worked perfectly
Pros: "Everything was great Awesome service thank you"
Pros: "The crew was nice. I had the front seats ehich were super comfortable."
Pros: "Perfectly organized. Clean and well sanitize."
Pros: "my flight going to Peru was disappointing the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I tried to get help from the steFf but they just smile and walk away service was terrible on my way back from Peru the plane broke down in Bogotá Columbia we were trapped inside the plane for three hours with no air-conditioning we disembarked and they offered us to stay in a hotel but the hotel voucher took a very long time to receive we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flights very disappointed will not fly Avianca again"
Cons: "Hire competent SteFf"
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "I had space, and the plane was quiet."
Cons: "I wish the lifts would have turned off. They were on the whole time!!! Not okay."
Cons: "The plane broke on the runway and was towed back to the terminal. They put me on the next plane and that one had mechanical issues too and was 30 mins delayed. Scary! I missed my connection to USA. T Aviamca made me pay $600 for a new ticket to Miami and then I had to arrange a new ticket with another airline to get to San Diego. The whole experience cost me the loss of a $3500 ticket, a $600 tickets, a $100 for a rental car, and the loss if my NY Eve plans. They dont care. Do not fly Avianca. Delta or Alaska would never treat a passenger thos way. Beware the Star Alliance. I will give up my Gold status with United in 2020 as a result of the behaviour of their so-called 'partner' airline. Imagine if I had been traveling with my family?! Wow!"
Pros: "Plane was good, plane staff were good."
Cons: "Forced to move seat (whole row of us) as plane was taxiing to the runway. Just managed to squeeze bag into overhead bin, sit down, and buckle in before we took off. Don't know why we had to move - not explained. Ended up with a middle seat rather than my booked window seat. There was a curfew in Bogota, which caused the plane from Panama to Bogota to be late, thus ensuring I missed my connection. Rather than being put on the next plane, I was forced to miss not only my original one, but 2 further ones. So rather than arrive, as scheduled, at 15:15 I will arrive over 9 hours later, after midnight. Could have been handled better by Avianca."
Cons: "Nothing really. Breakfast was a bit simple."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "A lot of hassle. Both morning flights delayed. Missed connection. Causing a lot of problems for things booked at final destination."
Pros: "No problem with the booking and it was definitely the cheapest available!"
Cons: "More communication with the passengers when we had to abort landing and try again."
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."
Cons: "Even though I had immunization proof, I was not allowed to board the plane."
Pros: "The crew was so helpful and kind!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food in business can be better"
Cons: "My luggage arrived damaged. Avianca told me they can reimburse me for US200 in miles for the inconvenience. My luggage certainly is worth more than US200 in miles. Certainly it is very hard to damaged a Samsonite ultralight (carbon fiber) and also certainly it is worth close to US 500. I am going to arrive to my final destination in Toronto with my claim and see what happened. I hope Avianca will honour me to either repair my luggage in Toronto or exchange it for another one similar."
Pros: "On time and efficient. Was a good flight, with comfortable seating"
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 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."
Cons: "The fact that I lost my flight because website vayama changed my flight itinerary and didn't airlines know"
Cons: "My tv was not working"
Pros: "Nothing. Airlines changed the flight time for connecting flight with out informing us. Whole reason, I booked a earlier flight so I can get to spend time in Lima but Avianca airlines changed the connecting flight from Bogata from 125pm flight to 330pm flight. I paid additional $250/ticket to get these tickets so I can get to Lima earlier than 7pmso that my wife and I can enjoy our honeymoon. I am very disappointed that airlines decided to switch flights without our approval. We did reach to Bogota at 1155am and we even tried to catch the 125pm flight from Bogota to Lima. but the staff was not helpful at all. All they kept on saying, “sorry nothing can be done, go file a complain”. Are you kidding me by saying that to your client, “go file a complaint”, instead of assisting. I guess Avianca airlines crew needs to learn about hospitality and customer service. NO AIRLINE MAKES Involuntary CHANGES with out notifying customers. Even on United Airlines, they don’t change flights with out informing customers."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "Avíanca was fine, Kayak is awful"
Cons: "Flight network are scammers. Will never use Kayak again"
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."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour at Dulles. When we arrived in Bogota, at 9:40 we had time to catch the connecting flight to Montevideo which was scheduled to leave at 10:20pm.... but instead we stayed in the tarmac without moving for over 45 minutes. There were over 30 passengers that were to take that connecting flight, so the airline had plenty of reasons to wait for us. Instead the airline, AVIANCA, chose to leave all of us stranded in Bogota for 24 hours. We will have all type of problems because of this we had hotel reservations as well as car rental reservations that may be lost because we didn't showed up. By the way according to one of the passengers whose husband travelled on the same flight the day before. The same thing happened to him 1 day earlier."
Cons: "My sister was not allowed to travel andI had to deplane with her. She had some wine in the VIP lounge and the crew decided they wiuld not take her ti Lima. She tried to appeal to the supervisor but it was imposible. She was not drunk. We believe that Avianca iverbookwd the flight and decide to use this as an excuse. Moreover, she has had bith knees operated in the last year and does mot move quickly and with difficulty. Any way, it was a disaster. Especially because we bought tge tickets whilw Avianca had its pilots in strike and we flew to Madrid on Iberua, because our origibal flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Delays and out of shape airplanes."
Cons: "I was not allowed on the flight, but I was allowed to book the flight without being warned that I must have a yellow fever certificate to travel to Costa Rica after I have been to Brazil, Avianca airline staff are EXTREMELY RUDE and would not admit it was their fault for not displaying the correct details in the booking details. NEVER AGAIN,"
Pros: "The airport in bogota is amazing great staff indeed avianca needs more organization skills when it comes o boarding people in other words making sure the staff controls the situation indeed te overall experience flying with avianca was amazing"
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"
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: ". They left our bags in in Bogota and when I get to Miami only one guy to help everybody and when the extra how came they were very rude to the people who can understand how to fill out a paper work"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating, poor service. I asked for and extra cup of water and they said no! I mean it's a 6 hour flight and we took the red eye. I would expect to atleast have drinks. Overall staff was very rude. Service was very poor and slow. Plus the seating is extremely uncomfortable no leg room no offer to up sell first class. Terrible flight company would never use again or recommend ever! Stay away there are plenty of other ways to get to Colombia. One positive is they did have a decent movie selection honestly that's the only thing. Other then that this company does not even deserve one star I will make sure to tell all my friends family and social media to never use this company"
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"
Cons: "It took two hours in line to be told our flight was cancelled. After waiting another hour we were told they did not have alternative flights for us. They refused to have conversation and would randomly leave to the back office for 20 minutes at a time or stop assisting people at all. There were people screaming at the ticketing counter and security was called. In the end we spent 14 hours waiting there for a new flight, got split up and sent to different countries, had to miss work, and were not given any flight credit, accommodation, or even an apology."
Pros: "La calidad del servicio , la puntualidad y la seguridad"
Cons: "Hubo algo de descordinacion el el vuelo BG a CARTAG cuando nos hicieron bajar por desperfectos en el avion , nos dieron 1 hora para almorzar y luego llamaron apresuradamente para abordar ya que el avion estaba listo Eso nos descontrolo un poco y dejamos el almuerzo por la mitad"
Cons: "A delayed flight from Santa Marta to Bogota due to bad weather in Bogota. Surprisingly, the connecting flight to New York left on time of course. Also it was drizzling on arrival to Bogota. I still suspicious that they blamed for rain to cover up their mechanical/ management issues or they intentionally delayed our flight so we can miss the flight to New York which they over booked and cut their loss. Anyway, I needed to arrange a hotel myself and Aviance claimed it was solely due to bad weather. I got what I paid for. Their rate was lower for the risk of their disorganized service and possible dishonesty. Or it can be really bad weather earlier. But one of UK passenger told me her daughter couple was in Santa Marta a few weeks ago and they went through the exact same issue. They might be unlucky family members go through the same rare situations. Now I got why Avianca gets bad reviews."
Pros: "When attempting to make the connection flight in Columbia, I was informed that I was being placed on standby due to overbooking by the airline. I was traveling with my service dog also. What is exactly am I supposed to do in Bogota, Columbia for an unexpected additional 24 hours? I had no money, and my credit card wouldn't work there. This was the worst airline experience in my life. Absolutely horrible. I will never travel with Avianca again. Avianca staff spoke hardly any English, so I couldn't hardly communicate with them either. Horrible."
Pros: "Flight is short."
Cons: "The boarding process is really bad, the ground crew does not control the passengers. After passing security it's ok but the transfer process in Bogotá is really horrible... wait to take a bus and take you to a terminal and pass security again is annoying."
Cons: "I waited 3 hours to do the check in and after that the fly got delayed twice."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked they had my parents wait for more than an hour between phone calls from Miami to bogota to find out what they can do they end up giving them an stand by ticket for one of them I bought their tickets on May to be sure that they will have a good experience and not inconvenience, after express my dissatisfaction to the front desk attendance she went to speak to a supervisor and finally give us a solution accommodating them and a different flight and different airline making us wait extra 2 hours."
Pros: "Its ridiculous that if one changes dates for the flight, it is always more convenient to buy new round-trip instead of what would be just, paying a small difference."
Cons: "That even with a month in advance, a change in ticket is a ticket lost since you force the customer into a new roundtrip. I have already lost 2-3 returns this year for this reason so I feel cheated. It does not seem just."
I missed my flight waiting for PCR results. I was hoping that a circumstantial accommodation could be made to help me get into the flight, as I was trying to get to the gate a little over an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off, but I wasn’t allowed. I do understand it’s atypical, but it could’ve been possible for someone to help me get to the gate with a little over 30 minutes to spare…not easy, but not impossible.
Cons: "Not to mention Copa owes me $1000 they stole from me after canceling a flight and not giving the money back, they took our water we bought 10 feet from boarding in the airport and had one offer of a small cup of water on a 7 hour flight. Pathetic service, not, cramped planes. I will not fly with them again!"
Pros: "No drink because didn’t open de bottle. No one care about it."
Cons: "Almost 2 hours of delay"
Pros: "The crew was kind. Movies were available, as well as a charging port for phones."
Cons: "We were prohibited from bringing water onto the airplane. However, this didn't seam to apply to all water bottles. My empty plastic water bottle had to be discarded, however, my friend's 32oz metal water bottle with water in it was allowed on the plane. She was able to get her water bottle filled during the flight, but my water bottle was tossed by the staff prior to the flight. How does this make sense? This was a 7 hour flight during which only 3 times were we given a small cup of water. That is crazy! Airplanes make you feel so dehydrated, and three small cups of water is not enough for 7 hours, that is absurd. Please, just like all other airlines and flights, allow people to purchase or fill their water bottles (regardless of the material of the bottle) prior to the flight so that they can remain comfortable."
Pros: "The crew had an attitude problem."
Cons: "Copa, lost my luggage."
Pros: "Onntime and very goid service"
Cons: "Panamá boarding room"
Pros: "Nice sandwhich"
Cons: "Better organization with the boarding, and the waiting room at Panama was really bad."
Pros: "In time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited."
Pros: "Realmente contento con el servicio del crew de Copa.recomiendo"
Cons: "Recomiendo usar Copa para todos los viajes hacia sur America......gracias."
Cons: "The problem was some other travelers. A family traveling with 2 one of them a toddler. The family arbitrarily changed there own seats which created problems when the rightful passengers arrived. The toddler was unusually fussy and cried a lot. Not COPA's fault but bothersome non the less."
Cons: "I lost one of my suitcases!!!!"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The crew should be bilingual, not leaving an hour late and avoiding being the 6th plane to take off"
Cons: "I didn’t know I need an app downloaded ahead of the flight in order to watch movies. They did not have seatback screens on this flight"
Pros: "Very good ride,thank you.Good attention from staff"
Pros: "Let me think..."
Cons: "I called Copa Airlines and the person on the phone told me they had NO online checkin. She told me I had to drive to the airport (SFO - 60 minutes from my home) to check in!!! Poor information. Bad food. Smells awful, cheap. Poor wine. Don't serve anything rather than bad food. They seem rather disorganized. Captain and copilot were okay. They landed the plane."
Pros: "Quito check was best ever. Got an exit isle."
Cons: "Food was weak."
Pros: "The crew in business class was very good and attentive. The meal was very good; I enjoyed the wine served. The hot towel and the warm snack provided was a nice touch. The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The foot rest on the seat was pretty poor."
Cons: "More of the same. Because of all the initial buffonery when we get to the gate for the connecting flight they us that my wife didnt have a seat and the flight was full."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline but I managed to sleep the first hour anyway"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after sitting on plane for 45 minutes. Copa did a very poor job keeping us informed and making other flight arrangements. Ended up sleeping at the airport all night."
Pros: "The seats were better than the last flight"
Cons: "Improve entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! On a long flight (5+ hours), I would expect lay-flat seats. These seats just reclined and had an elevated footrest. Not very adjustable. I probably would have been just as uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "No stops"
Cons: "Food and that they didnt project any videos or offer airplugs to listen to music"
Pros: "Flight crew and service"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Extremely friendly crew."
Cons: "No complaints. Great service."
Cons: "My seat would not recline and when I mentioned this to the flight attendant, she said it was because it was an aisle seat. Safety was her reason. Other aisle seats I have had did recline. The result, was back pain. I have repeatedly tried to have my last two trips to Chile and Colombia register frequent flyer miles on Copa. I was not able to figuire out how to do this on the web site. When I asked for help at the Copa counter, I was told it can only be done on the web site. Fortunate, my recent trip to and from Ecuador did register frequent flyer miles."
Cons: "This flight was not Wingo but Copa operated by Aerorepublica but the crew and planes were Copa."
Pros: "Short flight, nice snack."
Cons: "Entire row was skipped over for food service"
Cons: "My connection flight arrive extremelly far from the bogot flight gate, there was no onborad entertainment, some of the crew were rude to other passengers, poor comfort I wouldnt recommend copa to anyone"
Pros: "Overall good safe trip"
Cons: "Long trip"
Pros: "I got the lowest price for the dates I wanted with Copa, 2 checked bags, short layovers, and full meals on almost every leg. We had in flight entertainment, a very friendly, welcoming and attentive bilingual crew on all legs, and... basically everything I would want in a flight. My 84 year old grandmother who flies almost yearly said this was one of her best airline experiences"
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"
Pros: "I liked the quick processing, food, and entertainment"
Cons: "My Luggage was lost and sent to Medellin, Colombia, when u arrived to Quito, Ecuador."
Cons: "They took me to another city, Copa was suppose to pay for my transportation to my final destination and I have to pay 200 dollars from my pocket, traveling almost 24 hours"
Cons: "No organization and you should not sell more tickets than you can in an air plain. Just one persone attending the counters."
Pros: "The personal was constantly there to help you out with anything. Some of them could not be so serious all the time."
Cons: "There wasn't any type of entertainment, the magazine onboard could have a crosswords puzzles, sudoku, or any other type of game. One of the male flight attendant hit me while going thru the cabin and didn't apologize, in fact he didn't turn around to say sorry."
Pros: "Customer service for COPA was marvelous. They even made sure our niece flying in from Texas sat with us and the boarding pass and luggage area were super people."
Pros: "Overnight flight, they don't think of giving you an bite to eat? Really? Also since it's a flight operated by united make sure you download their app before hand or brace yourself for a boring, entertainment free flight"
Pros: "At least the two seats next to me were vacant, so I could sprawl out... probably because people don't want to use this airline."
Cons: "This flight was delayed in landing due to weather (not their fault) but I had a feeling, given their crappy service in my experience, that my checked bag wouldnt make it to my connecting flight... of course i was right. It wasnt so much that my bag didnt make it as it was their horrendous response that wss the bad part (I wrote another review for that leg of the trip)"
Pros: "Snack was better than average"
Cons: "Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "I really like how attentive the staff was."
Cons: "Before departing Chicago, I requested vegan food. When I arrived at the airport, nothing had been requested. The staff in Chicago told me they couldn't promise to get me food to Quito, Ecuador, but that they had put in the request for my returning flights. When returning, I spoke with the staff in Ecuador & come to find out that no request was ever put in. There were only notes of my initial inquiry about requesting vegan meals. Fortunately, the staff was great and were able to get me a vegan meal and told me that they put in a request for my connecting flight. When getting to the gate for my connecting flight the following day, the staff tells me that there is no request for a vegan meal. They were great and were able to get me one, but it was a bit annoying to have to keep dealing with the same issue on all four flights, especially, when I had spoken with someone prior to my 1st flight."
Pros: "Again, went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "No priority boarding for check in, Albright places were available I was put in almost the last row for my 3 flights that included short connections."
Pros: "Service and space in new aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment, quality of food"
