The seats were clean; the cabin looked very nice. The plane got me from point A to B safely. smoothest Lansing ever!

Flight was delayed 2.5 hours. No communication from the cockpit, 2 out of the 4 flight attendants we really crabby. Undersea storage was unusually small. I’m 5’8” and my knees were pressed against the seat in front of me and the seats are hard. My legs were numb for part of the trip.

I paid the xtra $99 for the economy plus but my headphone jack didn’t work so I couldn’t watch a movie and my tray table was broken so I had to hold my drink and fumble with my food. The flight attendant tried to fix it but couldn’t. Made my 6 hour flight feel like 12 hours.

I think better than other airlines. Provided a snack, beverages and wine for purchase. Very friendly team. I had no problems. I really appreciate the late flight from PDX to PHX on weekdays. It is very convenient for work related travel. I don't think any other airline flight back to PHX that late. I also appreciate that they offer power, free limited WIFI (to text/send messages).

I did not really dislike anything. I think it was a good experience overall. However, there is room for improvement for all airlines. It would be nice to see more comfortable seats, additional amenities and lower prices. I bought the last minute ticket one war PDX to PHX for $500. I think that was a little expensive, even for last minute traveling.

These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away.

No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage.

The bag search was very thorough and many employees were wearing their Peru jerseys under their uniforms.

Everything else. Flight was delayed almost four hours with no explanation. Received multiple calls from Avianca but all in Spanish until fifth one in English hung up once we confirmed we understood there was a delay. Staff communicated different directions. Only one cafe to wait in. Substitute breakfast served was underwhelming. Plane was incredibly dated with life vests strewn about/not tucked away. Upon deboarding, incredibly unclear that we had to completely exit and go back through security, meaning we had no time between flights for the restroom or to buy water.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
