Pros: "Our original flight was late arriving, so left late. Did arrive 10 minutes prior to departure time for the connecting flight.

Pros: "Everything! Service, staff, food, amenities"
Pros: "The flight was great, the staff was excellent! Unlike US companies, Avianca offers food, drink, blankets, pillows and headphones. This was my first time flying with them and will try to fly with them as much as possible in the future. Keep it up!"
Cons: "I can not request upgrade for my wife, because we had different code locators. I bought my ticket after my wife. I dicided to request a downgrade."
Cons: "The check in line at the airport was way too slow. When we got to the clerk she told us that we better run to the boarding area. They full the plane with passengers going to South America and the luggage for people going to san salvador was left at LAX. That was on Monday today is Thursday and the luggage still in LA. I don't think will be using this airline again."

Cons: "Small portions of food."
Pros: "The service was good, the employees were so polite and helpful."

Pros: "Friendly staff, nice snack, free checked baggage."
Cons: "We had a delay on one of our flights, but there was a lack of explanation. When we inquired about missing our next connecting flight they said, "Don't worry the plane will wait for you". When we arrived, our connecting flight had already left without us. There was just an overall lack of transparency and a lack of communication within the company/between airports."
Pros: "on time departures, great service at every touch point, clean aircraft, early arrivals, great experience."
Cons: "A delay of one hour."
Pros: "I liked that you have assigned seats and the plane had entertainment to watch. The food was better than any airline I have been before. The crew was"
Cons: "I had to sleep outside the checking booth and in the morning when they opened, they made us get in line where the ropes in the back started even thou we were there since the night before. The lady that was opening the ropes didn't care if we had been waiting there before everybody. She just looked at who ever was in the line for the rope line."
Cons: "There was a large couple that boarded the plane at the last moment, the flight attendant escorted them to their seats which was right next to me. I got up so they could sit down and they covered half of my seat. The flight attendant saw this but still told me to sit back down. I tried to explain to him that the lady was sitting on top of my seatbelt and halfway on my seat. I was told again to sit down. Trying not to cause a problem I just tried to sit down. My entire right side was in Constant contact with her entire left side of her body. Once we got started taxing the flight attendant walk by I stopped him and explain to him there's no way I could do the entire flight sitting like this. Luckily there was an extra seat that he was able to move me too. My issue is I do not understand how this was not prevented so that it would not be an issue. There were plenty of seats available they could have told her and her husband who were both very large they had to buy two seats. Or there was business-class seats available that they could've been put in."
Pros: "This is my 1st flight out of voluntary and it was great. I had no trouble with any step of the way. Avianca flights over and back were pretty much care free."
Cons: "When I landed in Guayaquil going to EC I was confused as to where Customs was but after 10 minutes, finally figured it out. I won't make that mistake again."
Pros: "The service is very good! And the food is too. The entertainment is very cool too. Specially for long flights."
Cons: "Eveytime I go to Colombia my first option has always been avianca. However this last time was not like before. After the merge with Taca I noticed and felt the difference. When I purchase a ticket with Avianca I expect Avianca service and airplanes. I can tell that the airplanes are Taca not Avianca and that is very upsetting. The Taca airplanes are extremely uncomfortable and small. My tickets to Colombia are not cheap. If I am going to pay $1,000 for a ticket a expect a comfortable flight. I am seriously considering flying with American airlines from now on..."
Pros: "No problems, no hassles."
Cons: "The TV shows and movies available are nice, but the equipment doesn't work very well. Sometimes the controls are not responsive, and sometimes the video freezes for a long time or the sound turns off. If you restart the video, you can't skip back to where you were by touching the progress bar, you have to wait for it to fast forward to where you were."
Pros: "on time, personal tv screens, nice crew, served food and drinks in a timely fashion-- absolutely nothing bad to say about this flight."
Cons: "Dec 19th SFO - San Salvador- Lima (Peru) They cancelled the departure for 12 hrs, instead of :600 am we finally left from SFO at 6:25 pm. Everyone missed their connection flights. So they took us to a nice hotel. We finally left San Salvador the next day at 3 pm. So I spent two days flying to my final destination (Lima-Peru). Really disappointed about Avianca notification systems. The first email arrived at 3:30 am when everyone was already at the airport for nothing. Never again will flight with Avianca."

Pros: "They got us from here to there."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in, snobby flight attendants, food that tasted like dog food and spam combined, entertainment system kept losing sound in the middle of programming, same programming each way, not enough pillows and blankets to go around on overnight flight. One of the worst airlines we've ever flown."
Pros: "Su atención"
Cons: "Los asientos un poco incomodos."
Pros: "Service was very good"
Pros: "Touch screens."

Cons: "Cabin was very loud, with jet engine noise. Could not block it out. Seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "Fly attenden alwas with a beautiful smile"
Pros: "Nothing particularly stands out. I did arrive safely."
Cons: "First class did not come with lounge access? Drinks were not cold. Bathrooms were falling apart and came with a disgusting odor. Time to retire these aircrafts."

Cons: "No food to purchase. The flight was over dinner time. Boarding - the ground staff’s announcements weren’t very intelligible."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for about three hours, due to mechanical issues with the second engine not starting. We sat on the the plane for over an hour and half.

Pros: "On time, comfortable, great flight attendants."
Pros: "Gluten free snacks, hooray!"
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."
Pros: "My flight was canceled but Delta rebooked me on a flight leaving at about the same time as my original flight, which arrived just a little later than originally anticipated"
Cons: "My original flight was canceled"
Pros: "All the staff and flight crew we're really great and thoughtful. Helpful with finding overhead compartments on a full flight."
Cons: "Seats could be bigger, with more leg room. But we know that's not gonna happen."
Pros: "Delta plane was renovated for the entertainment and seat comfort. This was the first time I didn't have to recline the seat because the normal incline felt fine. Legroom was good also. Every seat had a screen and free media to choose from. Very impressed. Great job Delta!"
Cons: "There was wifi onboard and it was advertised that we could connect and use iMessage, whatsApp and Facebook messenger free of charge but I wasn't able to do so on this flight. I didn't ask about it but this would be an excellent amenity to keep in touch with the people on the ground"
Pros: "I love Delta airline this is what airline I pefer to go with whenever I fly anywhere they are the way for me such happy ppl and so much help."

Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"
Pros: "Fast flight great service"
Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"
Cons: "Delta cancelled the flight after midnight on Friday morning, and never rebooked me. I still haven't heard from them. In not even sure why I'm getting alerts about baggage claim."
Cons: "Flight was delayed indefinitely. Delta supposedly booked me on united flight but made an error."
Pros: "The customer service was great, the crew was great, the flight was great, everything was outstanding"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."
Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"
Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"
Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."

Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"

Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."
Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"

Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"
Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"
Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."
Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"
Pros: "The mango sorbet"
Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."
Pros: "Upgraded active duty military member to economy plus!"
Pros: "Good stuff Dave"
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised by leg room in coach"
Cons: "More water needs to be offered more often"
