Avianca had a flight that night to our destination but they refused to find space for us, or to issue some type of refund or voucher for our lost time and money."

Cons: "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."

Cons: "Denied boarding by gate agent. 5 min past mandatory one hour cut off from boarding. We had been standing in line for agent for 30 minutes. Two customers flying with little dogs delaying the movement of line. Flight was subsequently delayed by 2 hours and 10 min. More than enough time to allow us to board under 1 hour regulation. I booked LATAM instead of AA based on reputation, very upsetting experience for us."
Pros: "All was good ..."

Cons: "Lack of organization in stowing carry ons inside overhead cabins"

Pros: "I didn't like at all. I will never fly with this airline ever again"
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Pros: "Avianca originally denied me a boarding pass because of a broken ankle injury sustained while on vacation. After a lot of arguing with the check in staff I was 'allowed' to purchase an upgrade to fist class. The Cusco checkin staff (except one) should be ashamed. The flight crew was fantastic."

Pros: "The helpful crew"
Pros: "Good entertainment set up"
Cons: "Gross smelly bathrooms, only vegetarian meal options"
Cons: "I reached the Lima airport an hour before domestic flight from Lima to Cusco. The lady in charge told me the gate was closed. I told her it was an hour before and i had valid tickets and she was not ready to listen to anything. Horrible service ! Who closes gates to a flight an hour before ?"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Security staff short with passengers"
Pros: "The gate counter gentleman was fantastic. I was seated at the window and I had lost my compression socks on the flight just a couple days before so I wanted to be able to get up and stand without climbing over a passenger. Since I am over 60 years of age, I asked if there was an opportunity in the very back to have an empty seat next to me. Me did find me one and I TOTALLY appreciated it. I used to have the status to have the better seats and it was hard to lose that...this was wonderful. Thanks for making me feel valued."
Cons: "The communication while we were awaiting the delay due to thunderstorm. We did get 2 updates, but I feel over communication better than under ;)"
Pros: "Fine, perfectly adequate for a tiny plane on a short flight."

Cons: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "I researched United’s, FAA, and my car seat company website before trying to board with it. I was told by flight attendant that I could only bring the car seat on board if it had a sticker? I don’t know what sticker she was referring to and it’s tough to keep a toddler safe with just a lap belt"
Cons: "My friend and I were forced to check our carry on bags at the gate and the airline lost my friends bag for four days."

Cons: "I can’t rate the food as this flight didn’t offer any."
Cons: "Heading from BWI to Newark to Boston on 9/29 on United. There were delays at Newark airport which lasted about an hour, and meant that we would be super tight getting in for our connecting flight. We had been told ahead of the departure of the delayed flight that there would be someone on the ground at Newark monitoring the delayed connecting flights, in case a flight needed to be held. Well, we actually landed about 15 minutes before our connecting flight was due to take off. However, we quickly found out that not only were the gates closed early, but the flight tracker was showing the flight had actually left early. There was clearly no communication between on the ground crews, and everyone working at the airport once we landed seemed confused about the situation. By the time we got within eyeshot of our gate, the gate agents were telling us that the Boston flight was already closed. This meant that no one was even monitoring the situation for us, and that they made no effort to hold the plane for the five of us who were supposed to be on that flight. Additionally, that was the last flight to Boston from Newark, so they literally didn't give one iota of care for our situation. I had a 10am wedding to attend that next day, and even after telling the agent this information she still asked me whether I wanted to get on a 10:38am flight to Boston, which made exactly zero sense. After all of this, she ended up getting me on a flight into manchester (that flight had been delayed for 3 hours by this time, and was delayed again after I was booked on it) which landed at 1:24am, a full two hours and some change after I would have landed in Boston, and a full hour away from Boston. Luckily, my boyfriend had his car and was able to pick me up. I finally got to Boston around 2:45am. My suggestion to the airport crews is to actually communicate when you have issues like this. It wasn't our fault, but we were greatly inconvenienced and they did not make an effort to prevent the situation at all. Adding to this, our pilot for that first flight told us that the reason for the first delay was that Newark was congested with too many flights into and out of the airport. THAT is entirely their fault for not being able to properly gauge their own capacity and should not have ended up inconveniencing passengers! I end all this with an additional inconvenience- when I arrived for my flight on Sunday at 4:40am for a 5:55am flight back to DC, I was told that my return flight had been CANCELED. Somehow, in rebooking me on the flight to Manchester. So I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with United to get that fixed at 5 in the morning and nearly missed my return flight due to crew incompetence as well."
Pros: "I liked that the suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for a flight to Portland"
Pros: "Smooth, on time service"
Cons: "Hate Dish instead of on demand, paid $15 for wifi and it didn't work for the entire flight. No power plugs past row 22"
Cons: "My flight was delayed at avp so I would miss my flight in jersey. Had to re-book flight for today. So I miss a days pay at work plus it cost me a nite for a hotel. I am not happy. My flight cost increased $750+ due to flight delay"
Pros: "I enjoyed the movies, food and assistance"
Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't enjoy about my trip"
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Cons: "That there was no one at gate to direct us to customer service being that most of us missed our flight due to equipment repair and hold up from Newark. I fly delta most of my trips. When this happens with them. They have a rep at the gate to help you. Also. There were only two people at the customer service desk for all of us. You should have had all four stations available to expedite the process of reschedualling. Everyone one agreed that united just did not care. So sad. We had a very tired infant with us. What should have been a short twenty minute flight turned into two hours."
Pros: "We were told that this was due to the weather at destination ( Newark) but the weather in Newark was fine. Hence, not sure if it is the airline ( United) or the air traffic controllers that caused the delay. United blamed the controllers. The Captain was very courteous apologizing many times for the delay ."
Pros: "Horrible smell in the cabin, lavatory out of service"
Cons: "Horrible smell in the cabin, lavatory out of service"
Cons: "My bag didn't arrive to the destination. The food in the plane was terrible. I was really disappointed from the company."
Pros: "The crews and staff were competent and helpful."
Cons: "The seat pitch and width isn't worth the price of the flight. Some passengers winced some when they saw where they would be seatied in the cramped cabin. For the plane type, I would think not much can be done for the width, but the tight seat pitch is very tight for most of the people that fly."
Pros: "The flight and cabin crew were awesome!!"
Cons: "Snack was really gross"
Pros: "On time bags on time"
Cons: "Long wait on the tarmac on the short flight"
Cons: "Almost everything at United is horrible,the space between chairs is a big joke is impossible to move , if you sit on back you probably don't have a choice for food or drink you have just the one nobody want"
Pros: "Not much. Stewardesses were pleasant."
Cons: "Late arrival congested- cattle car... 3 flights out of one gate. Poor announcing."
Pros: "This was a great flight with great staff and comfort."
Cons: "The plane was dirty from the bathroom, to the asiles to the back room where the crew preps drinks. There also was limited supply on snacks."
Pros: "wheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injury"
Pros: "Having movies is the best, followed by pillows and blankets"
Cons: "Stressed and unfriendly attendants (except 2). Didn't ask meal preference, just gave me chicken and I had to ask for switch. Would say things like "I don't have time" and "we'll do it later when the cart comes around". Only had 1 drink service, I don't think they made it all the way to my row. Very different than flight from USA to Paris."
Cons: "Well easier to say what I like. U've got a nice crew at least on our flight, very professional and nice. Other than that, well u have got lots of things to improve"
Cons: "crew is awful"
Cons: "The plane got changed so I lost my seat then later that evening (hours before leaving for the airport) my flight got cancelled."
Cons: "The airplane had a engine issue I believe and the flight got delayed and I lost my connection.."
Pros: "I liked the leg space, but it stops there."
Cons: "7.99 for a movie is absurd."
Cons: "Nothing. Overall best airline decent price"
Pros: "The crew on United was very helpful on my July 2 flight"
Cons: "You sold me a ticket on Lufthansa. When I got to Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris I waited 45 minutes in line to check in with Lufthansa. When I got to the counter they said they had no record of my reservation. When I showed them the Lufthansa reservation they told me it actually was for a United flight, even though it clearly said Lufthansa . I had to wait another 45 minutes in the United line to retrieve my boarding pass, then about another hour to go through passport control and security. I barely made my flight. I will never make a reservation through Kayak again. I am deleting your app."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours and we weren't given an option to leave or much heads up about the extent of the delays"
Pros: "Great stewards"
Cons: "Barely any ac on the connector flight"
Pros: "The flight was quick -- just over 30 minutes in the air."
Cons: "This was, by far, the scariest flight I've been on. Whether it was the prop plane or other factors, the turbulence was unreal. I've taking prop plane flights before, but none had my knuckles (or other passengers') as white as this one."
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to my destination."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and helpful. This was my first flight in eight years. The staff from the terminal to the plane was very helpful."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped and the ventilation was poor. At one moment it was hot anther moment it was cold. The flight was too short for beverage service. Could have used a cold small bottle of water."
