Absolutely uncomfortable. No pillows in a 10.5 hour flight. The blankets were super thin and tiny. The food, especially breakfast, was terrible.

Absolutely uncomfortable. No pillows in a 10.5 hour flight. The blankets were super thin and tiny. The food, especially breakfast, was terrible.

2 hours delayed no fair

I paid for my luggage online but they couldn’t confirm in their system and had to charge me again. Not happy about that

It was great. Nothing to change.

The Campinas airport has very poor signage, access for gate A8 is very confusing. Need more info on how to get from a domestic flight to international boarding. The place is a maze

The only thing that was inconvenient about this flight was the check in process. There was a lot of confusion. The flight itself was very good. Super friendly attendants, decent food, good in-flight entertainment.

Good have been much better being informed of the delayed.

I have some pictures to prove it , my flight from SP to Fort Lauderdale I could not sleep at all. Not only me but the passenger in front of me . The seat was broken, where you rest your head it was falling apart, I tried to put it back but kept falling. The flight attendant tried once and gave up . I asked to change seats and they did not let me do . I had to fly basically straight all night , I could not rest my head on the seat. Never again with this company

The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."

Cons: "There was no communication by Avianca staff & crew regarding the flight delay. I had a 10:49pm flight from BOG to JFK. Apparently the flight was delayed until 2:00am. I did not get an email or text alert relating to the delay. When I checked in at 9:00pm, the counter agent did not alert me to the change in departure time. It wasn't until I looked at the Departure board in the Avianca lounge did I know of the 3+ hr. delay. When we finally boarded, at least the captain was kind enough to explain the reason for the delay - Avianca needed to change aircrafts, then the originally slated captain called in sick and his replacement had to wait out the required time off as he had just completed a long haul flight from Canada to Colombia. Great job running a company Avianca..."
Pros: "Leg space is great in avianca, the food is very good and awesome customer service. Hope this company never change their way to service Customers. Thank you Avianca"
Cons: "Airline connecting flight from rio to Lima to miami. First flight was delayed, the four of us missed our second flight. Then we had to go to bogota from Lima and run to make it to our last flight. All of this made us miss work and sleep, 26 in airports and airplanes. The worst experience. Rude staff on top of it all"

Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely."
Cons: "The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether."

Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The food is just okay but at least they don’t make you pay for it"
Pros: "I enjoy Avianca unless I am flying out of bogota... friendly staff and economical."
Cons: "At many airports such as bogota there is always a REDICULOUS wait! Even if you pre checked in, you must wait 2 hours in a crazy line just to drop your luggage. 2 hours!! I have flown through bogota 10 times and the line is always over an hour long. This is insanity! I have visited 30 countries and never have experienced a mess like this. I hate flying Avianca out of bogota and will pick other airlines because of the crazy lines. I will fly into Latin America using Avianca but I will always use a separate airline to leave because of the mess."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."

Pros: "The flight over to Bogota from NYC was perfect. No complaints. I was raving about it."
Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."
Pros: "Flight went smooth, crew was attentive"

Pros: "I arrived at my destination with everything."
Cons: "1. I accepted a voucher in exchange for getting bumped from an overbooked flight. I gave it to my friend. It's very difficult to use. I won't do it again unless it's for a lot of money, or cash. 2. My screen didn't work on the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Little food"

Everything was nice

I liked it, it was nice.

Everything good 👍

Flight was delayed multiple times

Delta appears to lack honesty

My lay over was changed so that my flight was boarding on the opposite side of the airport at the same minute I was walking through the gangway getting off my first flight. I took screen shots of the times and it was alarming to say the least.

Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."

Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."

Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."

Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and helpful and the new entertainment systems with the free movies are awesome. Because of the heat in the cabin we received additional beverage service and follow up waters"

Pros: "Good Entertainment"

Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Copa change our flight to 5 hr layover with no options and panama airport is not comfortable to be there for that many hours unless you pay for the lounge $48 p/person and only 30 mins free wi-fi so very inconvenient. Also that airport closes the gates that are not been use so no one can sit."
Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."

Cons: "Luggage pick up"

Cons: "Dirty baths"

Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."

Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."

Pros: "The service is always very friendly on Copa. The boarding is timely. So is the off boarding. The pilots fly very well. Great landings and takeoffs."
Cons: "It was one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever had. I was in seat 10E of a Boeing 737: in front of the exit row and could not recline my seat. The woman to my right was close to 300 lbs and was spilling into my seat. The gentleman next to me kept putting his elbows in my side. The cabin was way too hot -- uncomfortably so -- and the air vents barely pushed out air. The entertainment system on the plane was broken. I couldn't wait to land in NY."
Pros: "this veggie meal had dairy, which makes a big (postive) difference for me the entertainment worked much better. although if it had been working on my first flight, it would not have been enough variety in options for movies"
Cons: "seats were too close together not enough water available"
Cons: "The departure was delayed, but we arrived at the time that was scheduled in New Yotk."
Cons: "We got stuck in taxing for 30 min. We waited for our laggedge more than an hour!!!"
Pros: "I did allmy endeavors, very good service."

Cons: "Everything was good, food, service, the crew, no complain at all."
Pros: "Food wasnt bad movie selection wasnt bad either Flight was pretty smooth"
Cons: "Ran out of chicken too quickly"

The airline is terrible. They did not allow me to check in a bag ahead of time for my flight. I checked when I bought the ticket, I checked weeks before, I checked each day leading up to the day of my flight if I could add a checked bag and Latam kept telling me I had to do it at the airport when I check in. When I got to the airport they over charged me and told me I could have avoided the charge of $130 if I had paid ahead of time. When I explained that I tried and was told to do it at the airport, they gave me terrible excuses and pretty much told me too bad and robbed me of $130. I will never fly Latam again.

It will be better if Latam will love to tell us when they made changes in my itenary. I feel that my itenary was change to however they like instead of how we arrange when I purchase my ticket. I have two elder people with me and i did not like that we have to split to be able to get home. The counter people does not know how fix situation and don't understand reasons.we wanted to board the plabe together as we purchase the ticket. i dont know why my ticket was the itenary the same as when we left to Peru. I feel that what I choose was not acceptable that.my itenary could be change to however Latam wants to do. That is very not nice and not restpetful to my wishes. Please call us for an apology and maybe a refund for all that we have to go to. My bag is also not get the destinatiin to Jfk.

Pros: "Very pleasant and professional crew."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. First class seats fully reclined."
Cons: "I have flown LATAM several times recently, and ALL the planes are old. They are showing their age. For the prices LATAM charges, they should modernize their dated planes. Also, the food leaves much to be desired"

Cons: "Poor food"
Pros: "I love it ! Everybody very friendly and the food was good"

Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight because of a death in the family. To change my flight was more expensive than the initial ticket itself. That is ridiculous. You should not do that to people. There should be a $300 change fee and that's it. At most. The entertainment would be good if I could hear it - but I couldn't. The sound was terrible. Uncomfortable seats. Barely slept. Overal terrible experience. Also turn on the damn entertainment while we are waiting on the tarmac - why wait until we are in the air? Almost every other airline - all the good ones - Emirates, Lufthansa, and other quality airlines - will let you access the in flight entertainment as soon as you sit. But the change cost of the ticket was the most offensive thing. I feel robbed, in a time of tragedy."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, boarding and comfortable seating. The check in was great, they changed my flight and I flew direct. It wa really good."
Cons: "The crew was really rude to me"

Cons: "Long boarding time...however I realize this was a very large and full flight."
Cons: "Seat space,"
Cons: "Customer service was not friendly or helpful in any way shape or form. not concerned for its guests or empathetic. the only thing that came across was that they sincerely didn't care even to make the airline more $$ in selling an upgrade of seats!"

Cons: "The plane on the first flight was quite old and the entertainment console was obsolete. The plane for the return flight was a new one, vey nice but the seats were hard and very uncomfortable."
Pros: "I flew business on the new airplane the Dreamliner. The experience was overall good. Very comfy plane. Slept like a baby. The food was the only bad thing I skipped both meals as it tasted like airplane food or frozen food out of a box."
Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service and food in couch was amazingly the best I had in a long time. The entertainment was delightful. The telephone service for questions, while in Peru, was terrible. My flight reservation number was changed and I needed to talk to someone. I had to call the States help line instead of the local number which had a non working automated answering menu."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice. The plane was extremely new."
Cons: "One crew member jacked my blanket and gave it to a different passenger. Also, my originally assigned window seat was reserved for cabin crew, so I was moved to an aisle seat that was narrower than my previous seat due to its in-armrest tray table."
Pros: "The big windows of the plane and the black tinted glasses are great, the service was great and the food very tasty. The seats are a bit narrower than the other planes but they are comfortable"

Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"
Cons: "Friendly staff. Took great care of my grandma"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "We had an hour delay and 15 minutes since we land to go out of the pkain"

Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
