Cons: "On FRKN time!!! At risk of missing connections all da time!!! Flying in and out of El Dorado in Bogota and Jose Maria Cordova in Medellin will inevitably drive you to anxiety and extra costs. UNACCEPTABLE!"
Pros: "I didn’t have to make long line, they have a pre checked line and it’s faster."
Cons: "When I asked counter personnel for better sitting and responded that there wasn’t , when in fact there were more than 10 seats better than mine."
Pros: "the crew was great and very friendly."
Cons: "I wish my return itinerary hadn't changed, that was a bummer. going from 10+ hours to something like 16+ hours was annoying."
Pros: "Ha desmejorado la atención y comodidad en ejecutiva."
Cons: "Deben mejorar las sillas de ejecutiva y la comida."
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Pros: "Avianca is always a pleasure to fly."
Pros: "Flight delayed causing anxiety as onward connection."
Cons: "No vegetarian food available."
Cons: "Mi fly was canceled. They only rescheduled from Montevideo to Bogota, and forgot to do it for the second part. I had to call them and ask for a new option. Their best option was a 23 hour fly, or a 20 hour fly with 3 plane changes."
Cons: "They lost my luggage"
Cons: "All was great nothing wrong at all."
Cons: "No tenían almohadas para nuestro bebé, las auxiliares de vuelo poco amables."
Cons: "How to manage to the costumers we went there a hour before our fly and they didn’t let us to check in, we did pay a penalty because they said that we were late!? We pay more than $400 to they change our fly!!!"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay to leave Roatan"
Cons: "Horrible experience purchasing through kayak. airline did not accept the ticket, later on after the flight was lost the kiwi representative mentioned that airline company stated no-show when was clearly not the case. result was lost money on first ticket and lost money purchasing a much more expensive ticket plus more than 24hrs waiting time at the airport"
Cons: "There was no communication by Avianca staff & crew regarding the flight delay. I had a 10:49pm flight from BOG to JFK. Apparently the flight was delayed until 2:00am. I did not get an email or text alert relating to the delay. When I checked in at 9:00pm, the counter agent did not alert me to the change in departure time. It wasn't until I looked at the Departure board in the Avianca lounge did I know of the 3+ hr. delay. When we finally boarded, at least the captain was kind enough to explain the reason for the delay - Avianca needed to change aircrafts, then the originally slated captain called in sick and his replacement had to wait out the required time off as he had just completed a long haul flight from Canada to Colombia. Great job running a company Avianca..."
Pros: "Seats. Very comfortable."
Cons: "No snack, not even peanuts!! Others give a decent snack and even a full meal service for same flight time. I paid business because I expect, among other perks, at least peanuts!!!"
Cons: "Flight with delay around 30 minutes"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat, food and the delay"
Cons: "Aviões muito velhos e comida muito fraca."
Pros: "Nothing. Airlines changed the flight time for connecting flight with out informing us. Whole reason, I booked a earlier flight so I can get to spend time in Lima but Avianca airlines changed the connecting flight from Bogata from 125pm flight to 330pm flight. I paid additional $250/ticket to get these tickets so I can get to Lima earlier than 7pmso that my wife and I can enjoy our honeymoon. I am very disappointed that airlines decided to switch flights without our approval. We did reach to Bogota at 1155am and we even tried to catch the 125pm flight from Bogota to Lima. but the staff was not helpful at all. All they kept on saying, “sorry nothing can be done, go file a complain”. Are you kidding me by saying that to your client, “go file a complaint”, instead of assisting. I guess Avianca airlines crew needs to learn about hospitality and customer service. NO AIRLINE MAKES Involuntary CHANGES with out notifying customers. Even on United Airlines, they don’t change flights with out informing customers."
Cons: "Nothing at all."
Pros: "The staff on the plane were extremely friendly and quick to assist when needed. Always checking in and making sure our flight was smoothly and we were happy."
Cons: "There was only one option for a snack on the way back after breakfast (Spanish quiche) and I wish there was another option for those that do not enjoy quiche."

Pros: "the TV!"
Cons: "the food and the selection of movie"
Pros: "The flight was ok"
Cons: "The cancelation"
Pros: "I was worried about only 45 minutes between connecting flight. Every one must have checked in and boarded early because the plane left 15 minutes early. First time I have every seen that!!"
Pros: "They gave me another boarding pass what made me fell protected and watched"
Cons: "The food in the plane was good but I think it was too little"

Pros: "Good flight. Good food. Went well"
Cons: "My surfboard got damaged"
Pros: "lots of turbulence!"
Cons: "we were delayed and so we were going to miss our connection flight so we had to come back to the airport the following morning just to find out the same flight was delayed AGAIN due to "crew tiredness" Very dissapointed"

Pros: "Brief 40 min flight. No complaints."

Pros: "I love the uniforms of the flight staff so polished and professional. Great airline for international flights at least you will get a meal and can check one bag for free."
Cons: "I paid for a direct flight and ended up in San Salvador?!"
Pros: "We just spent the last 3 weeks in South America including Peru, Ecuador and Galapagos. We took a total of 9 flights with Avianca including a couple of 50-55 minute connections. Flights were consistently on time and service was great. Amazingly, our luggage made it too despite the short connections. Service was very good. The crew was pleasant and they were always serving drinks and food/ snacks even on short flights although food is usual coach fare. All in all a very positive experience. Most of the North American airlines could learn a thing or two regarding punctuality, service and baggage handling."
Pros: "Very nice staff. Free meals, which is rare nowadays."
Cons: "No wifi. No personal entertainment on international flight from San Salvador to JFK"
Pros: "check in was a breeze. United had very long lines.....everywhere we went in Central America"
Cons: "Not only did they not let me board the plane because I was in the bathroom but then they charged me an outrageous amount for a new ticket to get out of Lima. Their transit staff were completely unhelpful and couldn't care less about my situation. I will NEVER fly them again."
Cons: "Really bad orange juice. Blankets were gone, they claimed to run out of them. Didn't got the Costa Rica customs papers."
Pros: "Punctuality , nice air bus .. Excellent crew"
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "We got there an hour and a half before the plane took off and they refuse to check my luggage for the return trip home I had to have the luggage shipped through a company almost cost me $1,000"
Cons: "Check in luggage has change, there should be a notification of how many luggages you are permitted prior to purchasing or be able to purchase extra if needed prior to arriving at airport"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight THREE times!!! It was awfull, frustrating and I lost my connection filght to Lima on the scheduled day."
Cons: "Delayed missed connection arrived many hours late"

Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."
Pros: "Service for wheelchair was excellent with staff at checking counters"
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"

Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "Did not even have food for sale was given a cookie for 4 hour flight and food services at airport was closed so this was pathetic and miserable finally three immigration officers for 4 international flights so we waited for 2 hours"
Cons: "The whole trip was miserable..., flight attendant and pilot were the only nice thing about this trip"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Pros: "Friendly Crew, short and easy trip."
Cons: "I wish that there were tv's built in, entertainment."
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "crew was kind and helpfull"
Cons: "They lost my luggage for 6 days. Also a 18 hour layover just the little things that makes the difference in travel"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landing was good"
Cons: "Having to pay for luggage under the plane. I booked my flight 3 months in advance to sit with my wife and we got switched, fortunately I asked the man next to her to trade me seats. I ve flown to Managua about 7 or 8 times with American Airlines and this was my least favorite flight. People take up the space in the overhead compartments above my seat almost all the time then there is no space for mine."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Cons: "It's getting progressively pricier with all kinds of added fees and the seats and spaces smaller. It's rediculous..."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly."
Such uncomfortable seats. Surprised that during COVID every seat was taken. We checked in online and had our boarding passes printed. We got into the drop your bags line and watched as the line for checking in went twice as fast if not even more. If we uploaded everything and bothered to check in, why did our line take longer than for people who were checking in at the airport? Not happy about that! Definitely something wrong there. And they reprinted out boarding passes- why?
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Pros: "great job over all."
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Athens check and security processes caused huge delays resulting in our missing our connection in Toronto and having to spend the night. NONE of the entertainment systems worked on the flight. We were rebooked without an opportunity to make our original flight which was possible. Agent also unkind"
Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"
Pros: "The customer service wait is extremely long especially when u get hung up on and start all over . But one man was very helpful in changing to accommodate me next day"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Comfy seats."
Cons: "They had to check mom's little bag, so we had to move things into her carry on that she needed."
Pros: "It’s ok. The airplane is not comfortable. It’s old and small"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "United 737-800 seats are cramped. The flight was severely delayed due to weather, and United did not do well in communicating that well. We had to wait 38 minutes after arriving in Toronto for baggage to start arriving in the baggage hall. United did not provide customs cards prior to arrival."
Pros: "Landing safely"
Cons: "Late departure. Poor food sale selection"
Cons: "The flight leaving Houston was delayed by over an hour due to some problems finding another captain for the flight thus extending the layover time by at least four hours. As a result I didn't get back to Toronto until around 12:30 in the morning. Otherwise everything else was fine."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very helpful and kind. The flight was delayed but the crew was positive and boarding was very fast and efficient."
Cons: "The morning snack had egg and I am allergic to egg so I could not eat it. There was no non-dairy creamer for my coffee."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seat was very comfortable. The flight was quick and seamless."
Pros: "Even though we boarded late, things moved along and we got out just a few minutes late."
Cons: "We boarded late because they told us they were cleaning the plane from the previous flight, but when we finally got on, the floor under my seat was still dirty, so I don’t know what they were doing...."
Pros: "Was good and all went well."
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen"
Cons: "The mini pretzel.,,"
Cons: "Flight delayed until 8pm then sat on the plane in Toronto for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and because we were sent to a parking area with numerous other planes and ended up getting boxed in and couldn’t get to our gate earlier. Nothing offered to the passengers during this time, not even water."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were a nice addition and had plenty of options including movies and solitaire."
Cons: "I was near the back of the plane and they ran out of most food options by the time the flight attendants reached me. The plane appeared to be newly upgraded. The design of the bathrooms, however, was problematic. The sink water faucets splashed water outside the sink and by the end of the flight there were huge puddles of water on the floor. It was also difficult for the flight attendants to navigate their beverage and meal carts around the people waiting in line for the bathrooms."
Cons: "Almost six hours late in Toronto Missed all connections No hotel No transportation No shave kit Exhausted"
Cons: "That we never got to Chicago went to Washington instead"
Pros: "Everything was great and i hate flying"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "In flight entertainment very glitchy, was unable to watch anything."
Pros: "Cannot rate the food as I didn’t have any."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Pretzels are not good snacks"
Pros: "quick, considerate servers, clean,"
Cons: "was not able to checkin online. had to go to the counter and wait in line ot get checked in. this needs to be improved. unable to get Rouge entertainment once in the air. so couldnt watch movies. this should be expained while on the ground before take off."

Pros: "Comfy seats! So nice when you have a comfortable chair"
Pros: "Despite delays the captain was communicative and gracious."
Cons: "Only one person was at the gate checking passports on a full flight so embarking took a very long time, making us late. Entertainment system was pay-only and the screen couldn't be turned off so we had ads flashing brightly in our faces the whole trip."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and comfortable. Flight attendants were kind and courteous."
Cons: "The speaker system was a little loud when announcements were made."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. Time was posted at gate for new time. Went to get dinner and when we returned to gate saw that the time had been moved UP from previous anouncement and practically missed our flight."
Cons: "Tight seating for transatlantic flight. More importantly avoid Toronto at all costs. Need to clear customs and go back through security again on a connecting flight. Takes forever. Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Nice and happy/friendly people working for the airline..will take this airline again"
Cons: "Canceled flight with none other available online (did receive advance notice via email, but had to go to airport at 5am anyway, /8!?3 no options available on app). Told to come back next day 5am (no offer to pay hotel, etc). Next day 5am rerouted through 2 more cities. Already 35 hours late. New flight delayed so missed another connection. Finally made it with no bags. Bags showed up next day, ripped apart. All in, this trip cost me 12 extra hours and 2 days with no bags on first leg and 40 hours plus a day with no bag (later destroyed bag) on return. Incurred $500+ in extra expenses because UA canceled flights / delayed flights / lost bags"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Check in was terrible"
Pros: "Empty plane do had lots of space. Super comfortable."
