Pros: "service and punctuality"
Cons: "time management for connecting flights with star alliance partners.

Very bad"

Cons: "I dont have anything that I dislike from this flight"

Cons: "For some reason I wasn’t able to select our seats using the Avianca app. I had to call the day before and we unfortunately were given 2 middle seats. I don’t mind one middle and an aisle. Felt like we weren’t given options."

Cons: "Everytnig was perfet!"

Pros: "Nice food ans crew."
Cons: "Late boarding, big lines."

Pros: "Counter people were nice and helpful. The boarding was fast. Food and entertainment were great. Crew was respectful and nice. The airplane was comfortable."

Pros: "Snack and entertainment"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "After a 5 hr delayed in which the boarding and flying time get passing by without anyone acknowledging the constant delays, we had a safe and uneventful flight."
Cons: "No notification that there was a delayed until you checked at the counter. Rude attendants that would disregard questions regarding the delays and then offered $12 voucher for lunch as if they were doing us a favor. Our flight was delayed from 4pm until originally 7pm.. Then when 7pm came and went we had to continually ask at the counter, because no information was provided.. Kept being told just a few minutes until boarding and then when it was almost time to board, we couldn't because the flying crew was delayed going through security. SERIOUSLY.. wouldn't you think that after all the delays, the crew would have already been ready to board as soon as possible. For most of the passengers our delayed caused us to be at the airport for at least 8 hrs. Since they ask to check in at least 3 hrs. prior to departing... You tell me if $12 voucher is enough to hold off for 8 hrs. When a soft drink and a sandwich was at least $15.. and that was for the cheap ones. This was my first time flying Avianca and will be my last. At least AMERICAN AIRLINES gives flight vouchers even if they are only 2 hrs delayed. A $12 voucher is a JOKE.. and there were 3 of us in my family. And they acted as if they were giving you a free flight."

They told me at 330am, that they would be open to check in at 4am.... it was 420am before anyone showed up at the check in desk. I had requested a wheelchair...I was told I had to walk about 60 yards to the other side of the concourse for the wheelchair, that they could not call for the wheelchair to meet me at the check in position"

Pros: "short flight"
Cons: "noisy plane. seems like Delta does not maintain their planes very well. flight was delayed, which made it stressful to catch connecting flight at LGA. when we were all on the plane, the pilot states that he apologizes for the wait, since we were waiting a while for take off. he said there was something wrong with the fuel system that had to get fixed but it is ok now. wow, that wasn't the right thing to say. as soon as he said that, the passengers started talking among themselves saying,,,,,,,,,,,,well, i hope it is ok now, because if it is not, we may not get to our destination! he should have rephrased that and simply said that;;;;; sorry for the delay, we were simply going through some maintenance on the plane to make sure everything is all-right, which it is, and we look forward to getting you to your destination in a few minutes! keep it simple without getting into all the details! geeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssccccccccccchhhhhhhhh!!!!! :("

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and professional. Enjoyed the reworked safety message before take-off."

Pros: "In rescheduling us they only charged us $54 per person"

Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."

Pros: "Good Food Nice Flight Attendants"

Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat and a male flight attendant kept going up and down the aisle bumping my shoulder. If I were a big person I could understand the bumping. He was wider than the aisle. At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."

Pros: "The attendants on flight were amazing! The flight was perfect! We arrived early!"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Overall the service was good. Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There was a disturbance among 3 other passengers. A member of the crew was in the process of making arrangements to move my husband and myself to put some physical distance between these passengers.

Cons: "BYOjet cancelled my flight"

Pros: "Boarding & crew were excellent. Very polite."
Cons: "On flights 0204 & 1687 on 9/21/16---there were no blankets available for comfort. I would expect this since I paid extra for the delta comfort seats. Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."

Pros: "Boarding was on time, free entertainment, choice of free snack with our drink, free extra serving of complementary coffee, and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Nothing in this experience"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "First time on this airline. Friendly crew and good entertainment for a long flight."

Pros: "I slept through the entire trip."

Pros: "Even on this short flight, a snack was offered. Flight was smooth and on time."

Cons: "Didn't allow me to board since less than 1 hour before flight (due to late connection on other carrier). Tried to gouge me for another $1500 to catch next flight. Awful customer service. Buy travel insurance if using copa! Expensive lesson"

Cons: "atención de azafatas no fue amable para vuelos de larga duración debería instalarse mas TV"

Cons: "Neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."

Cons: "Did not catch connecting flight because first flight was canceled"

Cons: "They weren't able to get my traveling companion and I seats next to each other."

Pros: "Stores in Panama"
Cons: "When you get into Panama in the airport they control people in a rude way. (specially when we were from Panama to the USA. They make questions and review the luggage not friendly."

Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."
Cons: "They do not have a way to order vegetarian food on their website so I did not eat on either flight, which was really frustrating."

Pros: "Smooth trip no delays of any kind. The airlines used a newer plane and each seat had its only tv for watching your own movie or play some games, that will always be a big plus for me. Also they provided snacks and drinks"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "They failed to assist my wife who needed wheel chair assistants. They didn't help her at all upon landing and debarking the plane. Left her by herself."

Pros: "Personal y abordaje"
Cons: "Asientos incómodos comida mala entretenimiento malo"

Pros: "After I missed my flight I was greatly helped by a transfer agent named, Ana Raquel. She did everything she could to help me as they arranged to get me on the next flight and as I waited and boarded. The other agent serving at that same desk also helped. I am sorry I did not get her name. No one could have been nicer than Ana was to me."
Cons: "When I arrived in Panama my boarding pass said the flight from Panama to Quito was leaving from Gate 20. I checked with the departure information and did not see Quito on the list. I made the mistake of not checking the time. And therefore waited and waited at gate 20 for the flight to Panama which by that time I had missed. And saw later that the gate had been changed at the last to Gate 24. I thought it would have been nice if Copa could have posted the change at Gate 20 . I would not have missed the flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and professional. I have always loved flying on Copa."

Pros: "I liked the quick processing, food, and entertainment"

Pros: "I love that food was included in our ticket price!"

Cons: "Filthy seats, specially the table had a sticky part. Got into my clothes and arm. No entertainment, NADA! Food sucked,"

Cons: "We flew from Quito to Cuenca, Ecuador and after circling the city several times the pilot announced we were going back to Quito in order to deal with an equipment issue. I appreciate the move from a safety standpoint, the passengers were given no information about WHY we were going back or how long it would take."

Pros: "Food and beverage service. Blanket & attention of staff...helpful. Free bags check."
Cons: "Pilot talked to fast...could never understand his announcements."

Pros: "Todo estuvo perfecto !"

Pros: "Great food, great crew assistant"

Pros: "After snow delayed departure from Newark, we have made it as far as Panama City, Panama. Our bags, apparently, are in Quito, Equador! Such fun!"

Cons: "Overbooking, they also left my baggage and it´s lost until now!"

Pros: "Perfect crew , perfect flight, perfect time !!!"

Pros: "At take off the plain a bird hit the wing. Crew gave feedback on what they knew. They remain calmed and try to share that feelings of everything will be alright."
Cons: "It took too long to get the flight changes. Staff was taking names of volunteers that wanted to stay, and for those who wanted to leave in the next flight. This could be more efficient by making groups--depending on the options. And try to keep more staff in the floor to help the passengers to direct them in the right option. We had only four people trying to do all."

Pros: "I upgraded to Business Class, the flight attendant was kind, helpful, and attentive. She came by and immediately took my order for a drink ask me what kind of dinner I would like and ensured I had everything I needed. In addition, the seats were extremely spacious and allowed me to recline almost fully. Definitely enjoyed the flight a ton more and would fly again."

Cons: "My baggage did not arrive in Quito until 2.5 days later. Apparently it did not leave Panama with my flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and nice crew."
Cons: "The food was not good. Limited selection on TV and no news events."

Cons: "Great flight"

Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and plane was clean"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"

Pros: "One flight attendant who was on a plane not scheduled for this flight (much smaller plane than scheduled) so lots of people left behind. Don't know her name but she had the best personality and really took care of a lot of people not happy being late of stuffed into a very small plane."
Cons: "Delays happen but DCA is a pretty big hub not to have a big enough plane to get passengers on board who are already delays. You had to pay $700 vouchers to a whole bunch of folks so whatever profit was possible went to vouchers instead."

Cons: "I downloaded the AA ap and followed the instructions but could not get entertainment to work on my Android phone."

Pros: "Seats comfortable. Plane clean."
Cons: "Air conditioning way too cold. Turning off outlets did not stop extremely cold air. Delay caused by redistributing passengers to move weight. Seemed unnecessary, but apparently it wasn't. Would rather be safe than sorry. when pilot talked, couldn't understand him at all. Slurred speech."

Pros: "It was on time and efficient. Easy flight and I liked the announcements."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"

Cons: "plane was very cold"

Pros: "Crew was on par. Not great, but not bad either. It was a tiny plane so we were all cramped in there."

Pros: "Fast Flights were a major plus!"
Cons: "Crew could’ve been more enthusiastic"

Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Okey"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Flight got delayed several times. Had to reschedule flight."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The seat (as I am sure you know) is not 100% comfortable. One of those little pillows that some airlines provide would have been appreciated as I need a bit more back support."

Pros: "The airlines don't allow enough room to sit comfortably. I am 6' 2" 250 lbs. My knees touch the back of the seat in front of me and there is no room side to side. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."

Cons: "Nothing problem. Excellent flight ✈️"

Cons: "Mechanical delays caused me to miss my uncle's funeral."

Pros: "Flight to Philadelphia wasgood"

Pros: "This was our first time flying Avianca. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful!! We will definitely fly Avianca again to Colombia!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice Flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Mediocre snack/meal"

Cons: "The Avianca flight was canceled a month ago, and kayak failed to notify me."

Pros: "Not much, the flight attendants were fine"
Cons: "They boarded the plane for the ‘on-time departure’ scam, then proceeded to do maintenance for 30 minutes, then when you think your on your way we wait another 15 minutes for takeoff. We spent more time sitting still than we did in motion. Horrible."

Pros: "would never have made my connection"
Cons: "late"

Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Pushed out of my seat by huge man next to me who ate smelly crisps and farted most of the trip"

Pros: "Good choice of movies."

Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew did a very good job and were very nice. The Meal was excellent as was the coffee. Overall, service was excellent."
Cons: "First Class needs a total redo as the seats were not as nice as on newer planes. Rest room in First Class is way too small and cramped. WiFi did not work well, and there were no individual screens on the backs of the seats. The First Class on this plane was really bad and needs some rethinking by American."

Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."

Cons: "I am very disappointed that I was not sitting with my family. We did not pay to upgrade our seats and allowed AA to choose our seats. I am very surprised that they would not take families traveling together into consideration, especially when we booked all at the same time and far in advance. At the very least sit two together. My daughter sat between two straight, and was very uncomfortable. It made her ill. I will not fly long flights with American again."

Pros: "Lo siento. No habla ingles. Me muy guapo."
Cons: "No entertainmento."

Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."

Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."

Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."

Pros: "How nice the crew were through it all was great! Flight to D.C. was smolth too."
Cons: "Because of the fire in the Tower, all flights in the DMV area were cancelled that evening. I was unable to go to work the following day having to request off sick."

Pros: "Adequately handled the 13 hr delay."

It's just a job for them to get by and it shows. Many including myself isn't big fans of AA. I wish this airline gets bought out by Southwest who understands value and elite customer service. They don't charge every little thing like American. I hope soon they can fly into Colorado Springs."

Pros: "Excelente la atención y los servicios prestados por la tripulación"

On way from LA to Rochester , 2 stages nite lights didnt work so couldn't read as window passenger pulled the blind down, it was night time."

Pros: "Any"

Pros: ",,,GOOD FLIGTH! THANK YOUUUU ALL*"

Cons: "Got delayed and flights cancelled with very little information or assistance from united to help solve the problem. Finally transferred to American Airlines and had a much better experience"

Pros: "The staff on this plane was friendly. There was room to stretch"
Cons: "We Weren't offered any drinks"

Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"

Cons: "The seat felt hard, not cushioned enough, especially the back area"

Pros: "The seats"

Cons: "Flight was over an hour late, airline did not give us any information until half an hour after we were supposed to have departed"

Pros: "I like very much, nice and smooth, I'll recommend this company, food was good attendant excellent and friendly crew. Thank you it was a pleasure travel with United Airlines"

Pros: "Vegetarian food was available and that was the only likeable part for me. Every else was strictly ok."
Cons: "Nothing exceptional. The flight crew definitely needs to to tone down on their attitude and customer service skills. Short distance traveling is fine but definitely not recommended for long distance."

Pros: "Let's start with the simple fact that I'm not even in Bozeman. If that doesn't tell you enough, the flight was cancelled resulting in the need for me to rent a car and find a hotel that I could stay the night in, considering the next available flight wasn't available until the next day at 3pm. Topping all of this disastrous adventure off the flight available took me to Denver, Colorado where I will enjoy a lovely five and a half hour layover before finally departing to Bozeman Montana. Where I was supposed to be 36 hours previously."
