I was traveling for medical reasons and the Delta crew took great care of me, made sure I was at my connecting gate on time, and even put me in a better seat on the plane. Not sure if that was a coincidental upgrade, or intentional, but it was perfect.

On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you.

On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra.

Everything. We have flown over 6 flights with Avianca this month. Every single one of them was delayed or cancelled. Not one apology. Not one upgrade. Nothing. We missed 4 days out of our family vacation due to Avianca's terrible service and airline. We went to 3 different offices and called the call center 3 times, we sent 4 emails to no response. Do not fly with them ever.

Todo estuvo realmente bien con una excepción.

Cuando abordé el avión me di cuenta de que el espacio sobre uno no es necesariamente el espacio designado para su maleta de mano, ya que uní puede guardar su maleta en el espacio sobre otra persona; sujeto a la voluntad del pasajero o la disponibilidad del espacio en el compartimiento. Creo que cada pasajero debería llevar su equipaje de mano justo sobre su asiento para evitar desorden, mal entendidos o que se pierda equipaje de mano entre la confusión.

The pilot was great st explaining the flint and not where we were.

They forgot my gluten free meal and didn’t tell me until I was on the plane. Can we count on you to feed us? Apparently not. How can an airline forget a meal for a passenger? Especially in such a long flight?

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
