Pros: "Flt on time crew and staff very polite"
Cons: "Lines are very long and the check-in staff are not good at their jobs. For example, I arrived 2 hours early and they ended up letting half the line cut in front, which made me barely make my flight."
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "I could not even get the flight rebooked I never got on the plane Los Angeles and they acted like I was there and all was well. I never checked in.. emergency led to a reschedule but contact was never accommodated."

Cons: "Did not offer enough WATER."
Pros: "The nicest flight crew we experienced"
Cons: "The chairs were tight together"
Cons: "Lost our bags on our 6 hour layover in Bogota and when we arrived in Lima (our last stop cusco) they were not nice about it at all. So rude. We almost missed our flight to cusco because of it as well even though we had almost a 3 hour layover. Took more than 24 hours to get the bags"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was over 4 hours late. We missed our connecting flight with Star Peru, and had to buy new tickets with Viva Air. We spoke with an Avianca supervisor who told us it was not her company's fault the flight was late. 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: "The airport Jorge Chavez in Lima sucks. Don't spend anymore time than you have to there unless you are prepared to spend a ton on food and water. $9 for a large bottle of water!!"
Pros: "the flight was good"
Cons: "the delay, we stay from 12 to 6:30 that the flight finally depart"
Pros: "The attention and services"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Cons: "Flight was scary as hell. Lights flickering, bells constantly dinging, compartments continually popping open, and exit light flashing."
Pros: "The food was fabulous!"
Pros: "The bag search was very thorough and many employees were wearing their Peru jerseys under their uniforms."
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."
Pros: "Clean comfortable and on time"
Pros: "air flight attendants were really great! As well as suitcase handle, it arrived on destination after all scales, awesome"
Cons: "space was small in economic class"
Cons: "departed late, we have to wait 20 minutes on board, flight arrived late to destination and in Lima airport were not gates, no buses available so we have to wait another 25 minutes in the plane, once in the terminal another 15-20 minutes waiting luggage"
Pros: "I loved the crew on my trip"
Cons: "Nothing everything was grate"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We could not get on the plane because you oversold the plane and there were no seats left. We missed our planned tour in Lima and now we have to wait 13 hours to take the next flight. I demand my money back."
Pros: "The flight attendants were incredibly attentive"
Pros: "Good flight, helpful staff and friendly crew. There was a flight delay out of Iquitos due to fog, causing us to miss our next connection in Lima to Cusco but the staff in Iquitos made sure we got on the next plane with new tickets and luggage transferred to the right plane. Naturally, we were disappointed with several hours of delay due to safety but were pleased with the service in resolving our concerns. There was no entertainment available on this trip ever through there was a screen for each seat."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
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: "Very nice and easy flight, the crew knew English very well"
Cons: "Everything was delayed, the boarding, the flight, the entrance to the airport when we landed in Liam."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy boarding. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Cons: "The entertainment system failed, pilot tried to fix it, but he can't."
Pros: "Legroom"
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Pros: "Avianca personnel helped as much as posssible because I am a frequent flyer in Star Alliance but there was only so much they could do"
Cons: "The itinerary I selected from Kayak site was impossible to accomplish especially with checked luggage because they would not transfer my bag from one airline to the next. Although I got my luggage quickly and got to the check in counter right away, the flight had closed and I had to wait for the next flight."
Cons: "I strongly believe they cancelled our flight due to lack of passengers. The plane was sitting on the runway. I boarded for almost two hours for a flight of only one hour away. They were holding plane to fill with those already scheduled for the next flight?"
Pros: "Delays. Gate changes on both flights."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Couldn't flight. I was on time, got an inspection through the police,. Missed my flight for the long inspection. Now, the airline wants me to pay penality for something that I didn't commit. Francisco Vishnu Carpio checa"
Pros: "The helpful crew"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we couldn't get out until the next day. They did put us in a hotel and pay for our meals, so that was good, but it was still several hours in line and a big inconvenience. The $30 off coupon for a future Avianca flight is pointless since we live in the US and don't plan to be back in Peru anytime soon. I free ticket or at minimum an upgrad on any star alliance partner would have been appreciated."
Cons: "Check in crew were awful. Told us that there was a sick passenger on the plane and asked if my friend and I would volunteer to take a flight out the next day, that star alliance would put us up in a hotel over night, pay for our evening meal and fly us business class in the morning, that all we had to do was wait at our departure gate And someone would call our name before boarding. We accepted, waited patiently, then we were scolded for having our checked bags with us and told multiple different conflicting stories about how we were to board our flight, that volunteers were no longer needed. I checked multiple times with check-in crew to confirm that the scenario was a go. They confirmed each time, so I canceled my accommodations for the evening in Lima. The change up at the gate left for a big mess to clean up. The gate crew kept arguing hat they never told us to cancel our Lima plans. But that was besides the point. The point was, they told us one thing, there was a major breakdown in communication among check in and gate crew as well as between all crew and me and no crew member took ownership or apologized for the flub up. And I'd like to point out, this was not a language barrier issue, all flight crew spoke English fluently. One crew member said all volunteers were obtained and they no longer needed us, another said that the sick person flying (the initial issue) was no longer flying, so no volunteers were needed. crew never owned that. they suggested that it was our issue that we canceled our plans. We were able to fix, but incredibly disappointing and frustrating experience."
Pros: "Poor customer service. Did not assist in is trying to get on another flight"
Cons: "Cost $250 with another airline they didn't assist at all and were very rude."
Pros: "The space"
Cons: "The agents and flight attendants were very unfriendly. You could tell that because I was of a different nationality that this was a problem."
Cons: "Ran a little late."
Pros: "The service was good and I love that there is a cracked bag included."
Cons: "The flight was delayed...if it was mechanical, no worries but there was another plane at our gate which make me think that mechanical was just an excuse."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."

The flight was business-like no nonsense, yet friendly (the crew saying hello etc). It seems like the crew is very focused and diligent. I was impressed that the ground crew texted me that my luggage had arrived from a previous flight!

Nothing

Leave on time.

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Security staff short with passengers"
Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "Early departure, and early arrival at our destination."
Cons: "The video on safety did not work"
Pros: "Fine, perfectly adequate for a tiny plane on a short flight."
Cons: "There are so many airlines in the world that refresh their fleets. This was like a trip back in time to airlines of the 1980s."
Cons: "Strange reasons for delay."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "No leg room, uncomfortable seat and shitty WiFi kept cutting out or buffering"
Cons: "A little more shoulder room and a spot where I can charge my phone on flight to be able to watch a movie."
Pros: "Seats were better than usual. On time."
Cons: "Jammed full, not enough overhead bin storage. Too many people allowed to bring on WAY too much as carry-on. Badly managed. Wasn't Lufthansa, was a code share on a United flight. Wish it was Lufthansa, which is what the ticket originally was supposed to be. Bait and switch!"
Cons: "Flight to Houston delayed due to air traffic"
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: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"
Cons: "Small seats but part of traveling.."
Pros: "Check in at SFO was helpful."
Cons: "Website not usable, perhaps because flight was booked on Lufthansa. Requirement to scan passport rather than enter passport number prevents being able to complete process. United wouldn't let me get a seat assignment til I was at the airport the day of the flight, inspite of my going to the airport the day before. United wanted me to upgrade and pay them more to get a better seat assignment."
Cons: "flight delayed by 3 hours. no reason given- effected subsequent schedule..."
Cons: "The movies were outdated mostly"
Pros: "Too crowded and not much space"
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "I can’t rate the food as this flight didn’t offer any."

Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "I liked that the suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for a flight to Portland"
Pros: "United - standard and expected fare!"
Cons: "How can they put you all inside a plane, pull out from the gate and then talk about gate delays for 45 mins? Another 15 mins on holding pattern. All this hoopla for a 45 mins flight!!"
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: "It was a typical flight."
Cons: "The screen/ video entertainment system was broken and the flight attendant was rude about it."
Cons: "I think, on a five hour international flight that you should not have to pay for your entertainment. Really cheap. And if you have a couple of kids? Since the Go App works for free in the states, why can't they offer that."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"
Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
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: "The meal that was served was exceptionally good."
Cons: "Is it really that much more expansive to provide complementary movies - personally I never watch the movies but many passengers do - I did not notice anyone who purchased this service."
Pros: "Comfortable."
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."
Cons: "missing USB charger had to "burn fuel" prior to take-off not enougb space for carry-on"
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
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: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Cons: "food was lousy, comfort level of the seats for a long flight was aweful"
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: "Nothing. Overall best airline decent price"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I booked the flight with my boyfriend and we didn't have seats together ever though we were on the same reservation! In the plane I found that entire families had been separated and had the same problem we did."
Cons: "The gate crew were so rude. We were delayed for two hours and all they did was shrug their shoulders at us. So frustrating."
Pros: "Great stewards"
Cons: "Barely any ac on the connector flight"
