Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "of everything"
Cons: "Nothing, all right"
Pros: "No food, late by hour"
Cons: "Less legroom than other airlines but have never flown to South America before"
Pros: "The male flight attendant giving the pre flight and pre landing spiels kept the passengers rapt with his droll humor. Kudos..."
Cons: "A Boeing 757 should not be used for a 6+ hour flight"
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Great and faster"
Pros: "The flight was average, but the quality of travel on Delta this year has been the worst I’ve ever seen. It’s average at best and I’m considering going back to American because I have yet to have a true Delta flight consistent with previous years, the whole reason I switched to Delta."
Cons: "We sat for an hour on the tarmac with the plane at about 80-85 degrees and everyone sweating. Once we took off the flight attendants kept turning the cabin lights on and off and serving dinner (on an overnight flight is that really necessary?!) and waking us up. Also plane was old and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats are too small. I cant buckle seat belt."
Cons: "Our itinerary was canceled"
Pros: "Nothing. Delta cancelled the flight with no explanation, and ruined our last day in Omaha."
Cons: "An explanation as to why the flight was cancelled, as well as help with finding alternative accommodation. We had to fly back very early via Atlanta, and spent the day in transit, which forced us to cancel a reservation in Omaha and erased our ability to enjoy the final day of activities there."
Pros: "It was fine. They didn't charge me for the exit row, so that was nice"
Cons: "N/a. It was fine"
Cons: "They did not have a “gate available” for our arrival so we have been waiting in the plain on the tarmac for over fourty minutes and still waiting. This is ridiculous. We purchase tickets at delta for a plain that had a departure and arrival gate. This should not be happening"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "Very friendly crew with a clean plane!"
Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."
Pros: "See Below.. Inflight WiFi Entertainment Options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed hour due to missing crew. Boarding involved a bus taking to stairs-only-access tiny plane, in pouring down rain. Grumpy flight attendant. All Carryons taken. Ran out of snacks and beverage service."
Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "Instead of a flight from Toronto to Atlanta.. it was a flight from Seattle to Atlanta, and I only had 45 mins to get to boarding because of the last minute flight changes."
Pros: "overall flight great,pleasant trip, courtious well informed crew"
Cons: "In flight entertainment screen down"
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Pros: "Easy boarding nice clean and spacious, I am tall so it is sometimes difficult to have enough space in aricraft. Staff was very nice, polite and helpfull during the long 12h flight, very nice job indeed!"
Pros: "La puntualidad"
Cons: "Todo fue perfecto"
Cons: "Aircraft seemed shabby despite refresh of Comfort Plus, food was really mediocre. Steer clear of the Asian Veg option."
Pros: "Despite a delay, we arrived in White Plains on or close to schedule."
Cons: "The gate agent just kept going on and on about trying to make up the time from a delay (18 minutes ...hardly world ending). The lead flight attendant wasn’t much better"
Pros: "Not a good experience. Crew was unhappy, disengaged, seemed too busy and buried."
Cons: "NEverything seemed hurried and frenzied. Airplane was dirty when we boarded."
Pros: "Delta captain was very personable, kept us up to date when a slight delay was necessary."
Cons: "It took over 20 minutes to check our bags. Given that we paid $150 to "upgrade" to Economy Comfort for a ONE HOUR flight, it would have been nice if DAL enabled us to check in with Sky Priority."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "The t.v. 's at each seat"
Pros: "Almonds as a snack. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "No entertainment and my table was broken. The air from the vents was also colder. Not much leg room and I have short legs."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Pros: "The crew was very cheerful"
Cons: "No entertainment and uncomfortable seats (at least for trying to take a nap)"
Pros: "Barcelona is a busy place. Don't forget your adapter plugs - like I did."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movie selection on my personal entertainment screen. The movies were New releases and there was a good selection. Staff was also very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cookies on the return flight with Delta were nice, but the mini meal on the flight down with Aeromexico was even better!"
Pros: "Snack choices updated aircraft"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "For once the food was good"
Cons: "Screaming out of control children. Parents not caring that their children were constantly running up and down the aisles. Crew unable or unwilling to intervene."
Cons: "One hour late after a stay over already 4 hours."
Pros: "We made it safe."
Cons: "The constant delays. And nothing was done about it. Not even we're sorry. Here's a voucher. Or here's something on us due to the circumstances."
Pros: "Both check in and gate agents were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process seems to have some hiccups...like everyone crowding the gate and the wrong people boarding at the different boarding times. This all began when airlines charged for baggage and carry on became the only way to travel without excess fees. There is not enough overhead storage for everyone to carry-on so let's go back to no fees for baggage. The boarding process will become smooth again."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Boarding, food, drinks"
Cons: "Seats (not much reclining, I felt them uncomfortable)"
Cons: "Several hours was added to my travel day when my Calgary to Seattle flight was cancelled and I was rerouted from Calgary to Vancouver to Seattle. It seems to me that if an airline initiated change that significant occurs, I should have an option given me to change my itinerary."
Pros: "All went well"
Cons: "Have a screen to watch movies."
Pros: "That wine was included in the drink selections"
Cons: "Didn't have an option for vegetarian dish. The outlet cord on the seat was not working."
Cons: "Too small seating space"
Cons: "vuelo terrible, los asientos totalmente incómodos, el pasaje no ha costado poco y suprimireron el snack, qué vuelo tan incómodo. ya no conectan la manga y la gente salio en todo el frío fue un choque muy brusco de corriente porque dentro del avión estaba muy caliente ya que creo que no funcionaba el aire acondionado y salir en todo el viento cualquiera se puede enfermar"
Pros: "Crew was nice, good food, nice aircraft, good entertainment options."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "The food, crew, and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was poor. The flight was delayed and there was not explanation at the gate that there was a delay or why. I don't understand why our carry on bags needed to be searched. We were put in a line with only one person doing the bag checks while the other line had over two people checking bags."
Pros: "Crew was amazing, movies good, boarding fast"
Cons: "Didn't get seat I choose, and food was bad I had pasta was okay, then I had like a toasted ham and cheese and the bread was rock hard didn't even touch it"
Pros: "Salida y llegada en tiempo, personal amable."
Cons: "El avión no tenia pantallas para ver peliculas, series, etc durante el vuelo."
Cons: "My fly was delate for 2 hours reason from previous fly cancellation. They didn't notified me."
Pros: "Solid crew, clean planes, safe pilots. Exceptional staff support at LATAM check-in at LAX."
Cons: "I arrived 3 hours early to my flight, which I had been notified that morning of a 2hr delay. Fortunately the woman who checked me in realized there was 1 seat available on the last flight that would get me to Lima in time for my connection flight (departing same time as my flight pre-delay). She personally got me to the front of the line, and ran with me just about to the gate, where I caught a shuttle to the plane. If she hadn't done so, and if I hadn't checked in so early, I would have been forced to stay in Lima 24hrs, despite buying a rightful seat and having reservations in Buenos Aires. It is appalling and unacceptable that y'all continue to overbook flights, causing incredible trouble, inconvenience and potential harm to your customers. For a service that costs so much, the only acceptable delays are weather and mechanically related. if it hadn't been for amazing staff immediately, I would've been furiously waiting in a city I didn't need or want to be in. Customer service will continue to grow your business or impede it negatively-- how y'all act is up to you. I appreciate how well I was taken care of by several kind individuals."
Pros: "The standard domestic flight, not a lot of room but not as cramped as it could have been. Speedy from the time we boarded to disembarking."
Pros: "The inflight meal was delicious. I was not expecting so many choices."
Cons: "Mechanical problems go start. And the crew in Orlando did not keep passengers up to date."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "The crew was attentive, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "The customer service"
Cons: "Delays on boarding which resulted in 1hr delay at arrival"
Pros: "there was way too little leg room and the seats went back too far. I love LAN and LATAM because the crew and cudtomer service are always EXCELLENT."
Cons: "Standing too long before boarding at 2am!"
Cons: "Tight space between seats"
Pros: "The entertainment was good. The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "The coach seats were unreasonably small. I have never been on an airline with such small coach seats. There was virtually no leg room. For this reason alone, I don't think I would fly LATAM again for a long distance flight. It was too uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food tasted great, and they had a variety of movies to watch!"
Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer appreciation the crew showed, at all times. Catered my vegetarian diet and their food was exceptional!"
Cons: "Had minor technical problems with my headphones. However, my flight was not crowded and was able to use the empty seat next to mine to watch a movie."
Cons: "Flightwas canceled and customer service was horrible through the entire experience."
Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Main leg of flight which was to take me to Lima from the United States in the first place, was cancelled. Refund should have occurred, yet still charged. Please issue refund."
Pros: "I was asleep the whole flight. more spacious than the last one, and there was no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "the delay caused us to miss our flight to LAX from Lima."
Pros: "Staff on LATAM is among the best in my life."
Cons: "Long boarding times. It's ok though, nota deal breaker by any means. Food is delicious for airplane food."
Pros: "Always professional and friendly!"
Cons: "Didn't have time to get any in air food or beverages due to rough air. Not their fault!"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Justo a sort of cupcake as breakfast."
Pros: "IFE on demand"
Cons: "Airline switched our seats, despite having chosen them 48 hours before. Also, they stopped serving beer and chicha. Flight had a 30 min delay."
Pros: "Brand new Dreamliner! Plenty of legroom in economy"
Pros: "Crew Was nice"
Cons: "Not in time. No entertainment on flight"
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled, and we were put on a flight that landed at the same time our connection was scheduled to take off. We had to run last minute and beg to be put on an earlier flight that gave us a chance at making our connection. Our luggage did not make the transfer, and LAN has only exhibited further incompetence with finding and returning our baggage. Here we are two days later in a tropical location with no clothes or necessary gear."
Cons: "I have a very bad experience. The first flight was delayed, so many people including me missed the connecting flight. They kept us till 2AM at the airport and made us take out all our luggage before taking us to a hotel. Then, there was a Flight leaving the same day at noon, but instead of acommodating us there, they made us wait till 11:59 PM for the next flight. They told us that it was a direct flight as it was initially scheduled from Lima to La Paz, but that was not true as we had to stop in Santa Cruz first. To sum up, there was a 28-hour delay in total. I was supposed to get to La Paz on Jan. 28 and ended up arriving on the 29. No explanations were given, but it is clear that they oversold as all flights were full. Avoid this airline if you can."
Pros: "Having a vegetarian option"
Cons: "No salad?! Fruit or vegetable! Something was missing."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "My bag got lost in Lima, and there was plenty of time for the connection."
Pros: "pretty good econ seats on LAN"
Cons: "Peruvians don't board in an orderly manner...dutifully waiting in line for your turn is a N. European thing"
Pros: "On time, good service, great new entertainment system"
Cons: "Small cramped seats"
Pros: "Took great care of us, food, drinks, and very nice crew."
Cons: "If I had 18 inches between me and the seat ahead of me I would say that was generous. The seat reclined all the way back so for 3 plus hours I had the person ahead of me in my lap"
Pros: "The flight crew were pleasant and tried to help."
Cons: "The food was horrible, options were limited, seemed like no special meal options easily reserved."
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew was polite"
Cons: "I didnt understand the reason of serving food at 3am when the departure time is 1:05 am. And passengers already had dinner. The lights in the cabin were not turned off until after the meal was completed, around 4:30am. It would make a lot more sense to serve breakfast instead of dinner. By the time we landed at 6:10 am, nobody had time to sleep but one hour."
Cons: "There was a huge delay for mopre than two hours"
Pros: "The service was good and the crew was very kind."
Pros: "We were notified of the flight delay with plenty of time. We did not have to go to the airport"
Cons: "The stamp needed on the boarding pass indicating the date change was missing and had to be corrected"
Pros: "Decent food, professional staff."
Cons: "Boarded plane with broken A/C. Extremely unpleasant and didn't explain the problem to passengers well in English."
Pros: "Lan is a very good airline for the most part. The flight was comfortable and it was easy to transfer from one flight to the next."
Cons: "During one of our layovers someone went through both me and my traveling companions bags. In my bag I found a pair of mens socks and my belonging were left a complete mess. My traveling companion found wrappers for candy inside of her bag and the inside pockets and zippers had all been undone. I am not sure if this is the fault of LAN or of the ground crew at the airport."
Pros: "The plane was new, with quality food and excellent entertainment."
Cons: "Due to a delayed departure from Miami, we missed our connection in Lima. While the airline was very proactive and friendly about providing all stranded passengers food vouchers and a hotel for the evening, the hotel was an hour drive from the airport so we were only able to sleep 3 hours before being picked up again to make our connection, and also did not have time to eat dinner or breakfast, I would suggest that a closer hotel be selected for future such instances."
Cons: "I travel to Bs As on TAM, as part of AA OneWorld. They separate my husband and me, giving priority to other people. The Flight attendant from TAM was rude, telling me that I have to give up my seat, or I would have to travel in the next flight. That was not only rude, but also unfair, since I booked my flight with time in advance."
Cons: "Flight overbooked, they assigned me a seat 5 minutes before departure"
Cons: "Mexico City airport is a disaster, taking off!!!"
Pros: "Well the crew was very kind and helpful and approachable. This is good even though one might not need anything other than the usual but the seemed very friendly"
Cons: "The change of gates and not updated in the chart soon enough so one would go to assigned gate just to realized it has been changed."
Pros: "Crew on board is nice, price is good"
Cons: "A lot can be improved, the food is bad, counter personal in NY is not empathic at all. I prefer not to pay for that food and bring mine. Your seats should be declared torture instruments"
Pros: "same as before"
Cons: "same as before"
Cons: "Entertainment selection was mediocre."
Pros: "Todo estuvo excelente"
Cons: "Llego más temprano de lo que tenía que llegar"
Cons: "Had to spend the whole day in airport due to justfly booking error"
Pros: "I liked how I was always informed on my phone about my flight I was happy that finally someone cared enough to find me a flight for what I had already paid for."
Cons: "If I had KNOWN that I could stay at the airport (everyone was sleeping everywhere lol) then I would have not paid the $100 extra to only have a 1 hr & 20 min layover instead of a 15 hr layover. Because with possibilities of issues like I had as well as the plane leaving early there’s too much stress. Plus I was almost STUCK in the airport because I didn’t have $1000. The insurance I bought did nothing for me because they said I missed the flight (although the flight left early) UGH"
Cons: "The flight itself was fine, but connecting through Mexico City airport is troublesome and time consuming. Mexican authorities make everyone go through a long line at customs. Since we checked in through Delta in San Antonio, we did not have a boarding pass for the Lima portion. , We had to exit into the main concourse to get our boarding pass. At that point we were on standby for seats and barely made our connection."
Pros: "They are on tume, corteoyse, provide nice food and drinks, and I feel safe and well-cared-for in the air."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "scheduled layover was 9+ hours. It became even more painful including a delayed aircraft."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses were incredibly friendly, making up for the over-salted food and cramped quarters in economy."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and responsive. Flight was on time."
Cons: "My video screen would not work."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really great."
Cons: "Of course flying is always uncomfortable and like being packed into a sardine can"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive. Asked twice to get the declaration form and eventually had to go to the back to ask for it again."
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and flight arrived ahead of time."
Pros: "We think the upgrade to AM Plus was worth it."
Cons: "Crew not attentive. Announcements in English were almost impossible to hear - need to be louder. Video screens were very limited: no games to play, no instructions on how to use it, and map of route was inflexible."
Pros: "The cabin crew to and from Mexico City were superb. They were very attentive and still served me food even when I was asleep. Most airlines just skip people who are not responding, but AeroMexico was kind enough to not leave me out. That little act of kindness went a long way. I will definitely fly AeroMexico again!"
Cons: "Dinner was terrible"
Cons: "Rude staff. Airline doesn't respect its own carry-on bag policy. I was forced to leave my bag at the door despite being one of the first on the plane. Seats very close together -- my knees were up against the seat in front of me all night."
Pros: "Spacious seating, unexpected small meal at 11 pm, Mexican flight staff,(felt like I was in Mexico already)"
Pros: "Good food and good entertainment."
Pros: "Food was good. Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "over booked flight"
Cons: "Mexico City lounge was terrible as their key hub , the wife and food was bad so I went to the hsbc lounge as I am a vip there was well"
Cons: "The food to poor.. no taste"
Pros: "Seat was good. Crew was good. A meal and beverages offered properly."
Cons: "Ground staff in Lima was very unhelpful when they broke my suitcase. No offer of refund only a handwritten phone number to call in a few days. Handwriting was not legible."
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Cons: "Delayed as usual, 1 hour flight tend to be 2 hours in the airplane. Turbulence"
Cons: "Will never fly with Aeromexico ever again"
Pros: "Food was just terrible¡"
Pros: "Flight on time, friendly staff, smooth flight, his service, no long waits."
Cons: "I received an email the day of my flight announcing it was delayed an hour. Others also received this notice. I changed my plans accordingly and when I arrived at check-in was told I had just made the cut, and had only ten minutes to get to the gate. I explained the timing and was confused. They told me the flight was on time and that the email about the delay was just "a glitch". Not a harmless glitch. There was no communication before boarding to explain the mistake."
Pros: "Check in was fast, personnel was very professional."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment as iwas able to see my favorite program. Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Everything was fine. We just got nervous because our luggage was literally the last ones to come out."
Pros: "Nothing, they didn’t let me board"
Cons: "The fact they sell you a flight with a connection in Mexico City with only an hour to transfer is ridiculous. Being that this is mexico’s airline they must know it’s a literal impossibility to make that connection. When you arrive they automatically shuttle you into an area to rebook you almost like it’s expected. Then you wait for 8 hrs in a crowded ghetto airport waiting to get on the next flight. When you speak to customer service they talk to you like your a dummy."
Pros: "Nice crew, free drinks"
Cons: "Food (pasta) was terrible, not a comfortable plane for an overnight flight. I'm small, just over 5ft and 110lbs (50kg) and I was uncomfortable the entire flight, couldn't sleep even 5 minutes."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and kind. I enjoyed the coffe a lot"
Cons: "Boarding was delay. I spent 25 minutes making a line"
Pros: "Aeromexico provides blankets; particularly useful on this overnight flight. The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! This includes the flight map, although this was not functioning on the Calgary - Mexico City leg of my trip. Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. I paid extra for the exit row on the Calgary-Mexico City leg. Unfortunately, the cabin crew put another passenger in the seat adjacent to me, so I lost my expected room to stretch out. I'm tall, and this really affected my comfort on this long overnight flight."
Cons: "In-flight map wasn't working. Beer, scotch or red wine are not available, although other alcoholic beverages are available, apparently without charge. Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once!"
Cons: "Mexico City Airport Customs and bathrooms"
Pros: "Service from attendsnt"
Cons: "The layover in Mexico city was too long 10 hrs layover....."
Pros: "Service from the crew was excellent, they were very respectful and happy to help, also entertainment was great!"
Cons: "Food: Serving amount was ok, food was tasty but it's like Aeromexico is missing those little details that make a difference: salt and pepper mini bags, a dressing for the salad, and butter or cream chesse for the bread. Also a small chocolate or candy would be fine just to make the experience even better"
Cons: "This does not only apply to Aeroméxico, but the seating in airplanes are too narrow and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Great and attentive ground and air crew. Bilingual and great food and drink."
Pros: "First class"
Cons: "Seats no that comfortable"
Pros: "Crew we very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Leg room was too small, food was awful, no taste. Bathroom smelled even from take off."
Cons: "Our flight was overbooked and we were moved to a later flight causing a 7 hour layover and arrived at 2am the following morning."
Cons: "Lost our luggage on a direct flight"
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: "Entire flight crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was canceled a month ago, and kayak failed to notify me."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice"
Cons: "Very confusing flight crew disembarking was a mess!"
Cons: "Did not offer enough WATER."
Pros: "The nicest flight crew we experienced"
Cons: "The chairs were tight together"
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: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
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: "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"
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"

Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"
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."
Pros: "Upgraded to first class. Provided umbrellas for boarding. Changed our daughters' seat assignments so they could sit together. Nice breakfast."

Pros: "I didn't like at all. I will never fly with this airline ever again"
Pros: "the people were very helpful and understanding of the situation."
Cons: "that my flight was late causing a chain reaction of all other flights to be useless and thus changing all my flights and giving me another day in an airport."
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: "Although we were in "Economy" class, it felt just like Business. Lots of space to stretch your legs, personal TV monitor on the back of each head rest (Including HBO!), and even though it was a short 1.5 hour flight we were served drinks and a meal."
Cons: "The meal was average to sub-par, but than again it was a short flight and a warm meal was actually a pleasant surprise."
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 ?"
Cons: "Ran a little late."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Took forever To take off. Also a mix up happens with our seats & crew was unconcerned or helpful."
Cons: "The emergency exit row window seats are extremely uncomfortable. Seats don't recline and there is no arm rest along the wall. Also, there were no vegetarian options aboard and the flight attendants didn't make any effort to put together something I could eat."
Pros: "short flight, timeliness, great service!"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Very quick flight and good service."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour."
Pros: "Flights were on time and had excellent in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "No drink services are provided on these flights. Unsure if that's specific to our flights (we took 2 Avianca flights) or all domestic flights in general."
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Pros: "Flights were first class. I liked knowing the reputation of Avianca and that it is not known for cancelling flights. One of the best landings ever and in a challenging place!"
Cons: "The snack was basic, however it is a 1-hour flight"
Cons: "Their check in was ridiculously slow-15-20 min per person at times. How is that possible? The flight was said to be 90 min delayed. I asked about getting on another airline. They said no. Finally this 1 hour flight was 3 hours late to Lima & I missed my international flight. Never again Avianca."
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Pros: "Tuve 2 paradas antes de llegar a destino y realmente estaba asustada de que la maleta no llegará junto conmigo a destino pero lo hizo! Además todos los vuelos salieron a tiempo, todo funcionó muy sincronizado"
Cons: "La comida no me gusto tanto, aunque no estaba tan mal tampoco, quizás un menú para niños estaría bien que tuvieran."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "The Cusco airport was a mess! Long delay an changed the gate twice"
Pros: "The food was good for airline food. The exit rows do give you more leg room."
Cons: "However if you sit in an exit row or directly in front of one you cannot recline your seat. This is a big deal if it is an overnight flight like the one I had because it makes it very difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Very comfy seats, a lot of leg space."
Cons: "One hour delay"
Pros: "CREW AND ONBOARD FOOD MADE THE DIFFERENCE COMPARED TO OTHER AIRLINES SERVISING SAME AMOUNT OF FLIGHT HOURS."
Cons: "BUT ENTERTAINMENT WAS TERRIBLE FOR A NEARLY 5 HOURS FLIGHT NOT TO HAVE SCREEN ON EACH SEAT WAS A DISGUSTING EXPERIENCE. WHEN WE FLEW FROM BOGOTA TO PUJ PLANE HAD SEAT SCREENS AND WAS GREAT SERVICE."
Pros: "Competent flight attendants and modern airplane."
Cons: "My flight from Lima to Cusco was overbooked, so they bumped me to the next flight, which was 5 hours later. As a token of apology, they offered me a free lunch from one of the cafes in the Lima airport. I got to the cafe, and I was able to pick between one of two boring sandwiches. I was more in the mood for a different one that was one nuevo sol more, but apparently that was not allowed with my coupon. So essentially, I got to spend eight hours in the airport for a measly sandwich that wasn't very good. And then my return flight from Cusco to Lima was delayed by over an hour, which was also not ideal (although nowhere near as bad as the original situation)."
Pros: "Crew were great, flight was enjoyable and scenery stunning, enjoyed the flight once we got going."
Cons: "Mix up at the boarding gate - allocated gate 4 and then moved to gate 1. Half hour delay due to reshuffle not good when someone is meeting you at the other end. Entertainment system not working so lucky no one sitting next to me so could then move and this system not functioning properly. Suggest that any changes are given with plenty of notice and loudly and/or on the screen at the departure gate - maybe this has to be negotiated with the Cusco airport. Broadcasts in Spanish are okay for those who speak it but English is lost when announcements are made."
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I missed my connection, spending 6 hours in the Houston airport"
Cons: "The seats claim they have United Private Screening (TV and Movies) using the United app but it was not working. It worked well on the previous flight."
Pros: "Efficient and friendly. Good service and good entertainment."
Cons: "Delays in flights were a disappointment"
Pros: "Everything was amazing I love united airlines"
Cons: "Nothing everything was perfect"
Cons: "Missed connection due to mechanical"
Cons: "Was a disaster we’re stuck at the airport for 3 1/2 hours delayed the flight.... gave us a vautcher for 10$ canadian by the time everything at the airport was closed for food. There were no space for our luggage. Spend 12 hours at airports from Victoria to Las Vegas."
Pros: "That I eventually made it home."
Cons: "Flight from Calgary to Denver delayed three and half hours. Informed of this delay thirty minutes before scheduled departure when our plane hadn’t even left Denver yet to head to Calgary. ( 2.5 hr flight) once finally made it to Denver was informed that we missed connecting flight to Boston. We were then informed since it’s for “weather” reasons earlier in the day that caused a sequence of delays they couldn’t accommodate us for hotel. We were given two “blankets” which were as thin as a sheet and each one bottle of water. Some other people around us received good voucherS. We did not. We walked around the airport for close to an hour looking for anyplace we could lay down and sleep. None were to be found. We tried to sleep on the floor but was so cold and uncomfortable I literally got sick to my stomach. Another fun thing added to mix. We were placed on another flight as 6 the next morning. After no sleeping at all we boarded our next flight Which was not a direct flight to Boston but would be from Denver to Newark then Newark to Boston. We were suppose to originally land in Boston at 0600 Monday. Instead we arrived at 1430 after getting zero sleep. My husband and I were also unable to sit together which was extra special for people around me because after not sleeping I continued to be sick to my stomach."
Pros: "Extraordinary efforts to accommodate bags in the overhead bin."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Quick."
Cons: "Waiting 15 minutes before. Able to unload"
Pros: "GREAT crew members"
Pros: "Flight left on time and attendants friendly"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They behaved with humor, grace, kindness and professionalism."
Cons: "The seats are sooooo cramped and uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a bit less expensive at first, but the charges added up quickly. My only complaint really is that the booking was through Air Canada and the flight was operated through United Airlines. It wasn’t a problem for me but if you only have a Visa debit card and want to pay for checked bags online, this is not possible to do online prior to checking in. You also can’t check in to your flight as you would normally, you get the last available seats and have to pay for any seat changes. All in all, I’d still book through Kayak but I’d make sure that the flight I booked was through the company that operates the flights. It’s will give you more options when checking in to the flight."
Cons: "I was put through a third party airline that had no control of the final booking procedure that I was used to. I could not choose seats or add checked luggage on my visa debit, I needed a credit card. This wasn’t a problem but it could pose problems for some people."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t that helpful."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "It was cheap"
Cons: "Customer attention, they wanted 50.000 lb not a bit above otherwise is US$200!"
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment option on this leg of my journey, which makes a four-hour flight seem long."
Cons: "We were not informed about the cause of the delay without asking at the departure desk and other carrier planes flew to San Francisco while our flight continued to be delayed. The posted time also was erratic both at the airport and on the app for the people meeting us. Luckily our time was flexible so though frustrating and inconvenient we managed OK."
Pros: "The crew were very professional ad seemed to be having a good time. Flight was on time. The passenger compartment smelled ok. it was tolerable"
Cons: "The seats were new on an old plane. They were very firm and really thin compared to older designs. I suspect it allows them a new extra rows. It was tight and I am not big. Cows in a shipping tube? Almost. Also it was noisy, so bring those ear plugs and noise canceling earphones."
Pros: "They left my luggage in Calgary. I still don't know what flight they're returning it on it has to go to SF and then Fresno. Make sure you have a tag number for your luggage!!!"
Pros: "Direct flight. Took off on time and landed early. Decent amount of leg room and friendly staff. Overall very smooth experience."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "we waited in the runway for over an hour, my bags also didn't make my connection, the crew never apologized"
Cons: "It would have been great if a movie was provided."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster!"
Cons: "Poor boarding service"
Pros: "Flight was on time or early which is just what you want"
Cons: "Nothing to say here"
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: "This was the worst and most stressful trip of my life. Heard of Murphy's law? Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. And did go wrong again. And again. It wasn't my fault or the people's fault, but an unfortunate chain of circumstances. And United personnel helped me deal with so many challenges and went above and beyond their duty. On the trip to Calgary my flights were delayed, I was denied boarding or the flight was canceled. It took me 3 days to get to my destination and this happened after I arrived 4 hours in advance for every flight, but the first one. I did everything I could in my power, but my best was not good enough. And so when my rental car broke down two hours before my departure, and I failed to start it, I took a cab to YYC and hoped for the best. And United didn't disappoint. They listened to me, respected me and tried to help me as much as they could. My leg cramped and I was not able to cross the hallway to the flight, just as the boarding was starting. The board agents called the wheelchair, walked over to me and tried to calm me down, just as they were wrapping up boarding. They then checked my luggage and held me by the hand all the way to the airplane,"
Cons: "Once again, the agents did the best they could given a set of highly unusual circumstances. Yet the flight was one hour late for a very predictable reason. In the winter it snows in Calgary. You have to de-ice the plane. This takes time. Yet, the airline treated snow as emergency and didn't allow time for that. One hour delay stressed a lot of people out and canceled their plans. Do allow for more time for travel in the winter. It is cost effective and leaves customers happier."
Cons: "Typical American passengers ignoring crews request to NOT place coats and small items in overhead bin. I had to have a "discussion" with passenger to please put coat under front seat. I don't know how crew could be more assertive with this item"
Pros: "Nothing about 9 HOURS in an Airport is great! I walked from where I landed coming from Calgary, to terminal 2 Gate F 17 because that was where the flight to Lexington was to leave from. Then I got notice it was leaving from terminal 1 Gate B 24 so (I'm sure I walked a mile there) to get there. Waited for a number of hours checked my phone and found the departure was back again at terminal 1 Gate F 17!?!?! So I walked another mile back to where I started. At no point was I offered a drink or meal voucher for the 9 hour delay/inconvenience in my flight to Lexington ky. Suffice to say that I will NEVER go on any flight if I have to go back through this airport. I also have horrible knees, which all the walking did not help."
Cons: "I would like to say that as a person with a disability, there is not any support for help getting around. They have plenty of for lack of a better term "golf carts"; but no one utilizing them. Not that I am a world traveler; but this airport could take more than a page from Calgary international in terms of support to those with disabilities. I will NEVER and I do mean NEVER go through something like this again. I expected to be home in Lexington at 5:00pm and did NOT arrive until midnight.??!! This is in my opinion quite unacceptable! What a way to spend a hard earned vacation day! Thanks Luanne Steele"
Pros: "I got from point a to point b."
Cons: "The seats keep getting smaller and more people are being packed in. Not enough lavatories for passengers."
Cons: "We were at the counter 57 min before flight. They would not consider letting us on the flight even though no one else was in line. My father had a heart attack and i was trying to get home. Zero bending the rules."
Pros: "I was upgraded to 1st class"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on the day before. Flight was delayed because flights in and out of SFO had ceased. We we not given any other information. We didn't know if it was weather in the airport was on lockdown. No one was at the customer service desk. The gate agent said they would not rebook but did not know when the flights would resume"
Cons: "I had to take a different flight to make my destination on the same day. I landed 6.5 hours later thanks my original flight."
Cons: "The fact that my wife and I were not able to check in at kiosk is a technology problem, and then we waited in line forever as United tried to deal with other large group of problem customers. Because if their bad service we missed cutoff, even though I had already checked In and we had no checked bags. We We were forced to pay for hotel our of our pocket, get another rental car, and change itinerary to have to go through Denver to get back to Chicago and arrive a full day later, causing havoc with work schedule and coverage for kids. Thumbs down United! I used to be 1K with you, this Is why I don't fly this airline often."
Pros: "Personnel were friendly and cooperative."
Cons: "Process for customs was not well explained (where/how to meet up with bags for customs process). We went through customs on the second leg of the flight with barely enough time to get through customs and then back through security at the Calgary airport. Our flight had been unilaterally changed by the airline due to too tight a connection but the new flight (much less convenient, had to get up at 3:00 am) was as bad or worse. We would have missed our connecting flight if it had not been delayed due to weather at our destination."
Cons: "Flying at the back of the plane is just not as nice of a trip."
Cons: "Cancelled flight"
Pros: "I like the united have a lot of flight to a lot of places in USA and orther country."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Space is tight and a drink and 1 oz. of pretzels can hardly be called food."
Cons: "no entertainment united didn't let me connect flight and it is not our fault. but they didn't even pay for the hotel and check in luggage fee that i didn't have to pay if i could connect flight from Tokyo on the same day."
Pros: "It was a normal flight."
Cons: "The flight was around 20 minutes late leaving, and when we got to San Francisco, there was a lot of fog, and we got delayed another 40 minutes."
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: "Boarding from back to front...right on!!!"
Cons: "Attendent wouldn't accept my visa gift card as payment so I was unable to eat"
Pros: "Great customer service and free movies,"
Cons: "My luggage was opened in belive in lima, few things missing."
