Cons: "The landing was horrifying. After being on many commercial flights over the years I have never felt this way about a flight experience. The pilot seemed very inexperienced nor skilled at landing. The plane first took a plunge leaving everyone grabbing their seats in fear. The plane was going way too fast as we then continued descending while the plane tilted to the side and then the nose of the plane tipped downwards. To best describe the situation, the plane was completely out of control. Everyone around me was frightened and talking about the awful experience. Flight attendants nor the pilot made any mention of what happened nor did they make an announcement to make passengers aware that there may be some difficulty landing. Therefore passengers were left to wonder what really happened but it seemed as if this was the first time the pilot had flown a plane. After the landing I was sick for the rest of the day with nausea. I would like a refund and will report this matter to the FAA for answers and I believe they should investigate what happened on this flight for safety matters. I did not feel safe at all, and I have never had an experience like this. I'm afraid to ever fly AVIANCA again."
Pros: "entertaiment"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Airplane was clean, modern, and very accommodating (cup holders, usb port, large touch screen entertainment systems for which they provided headphones FREE of charge, free hot turkey and cheese mini croissant with a mini cold doughnut, fresh drinks). Staff were also super nice and accommodating, flight was smoothe. Oh...and seats leaned back quite a bit more than on other airlines i've used in the past."
Cons: "I needed to change the date,,,,but no answer at Avianca....so I ended up wasting the full amount I paid.NEVER AGAIN do I use KAYAK!"
Cons: "Flight left late. Staff made us exit and go to the front counter to get different tickets for the connecting flight. THe front counter wouldn't print them for us. We made it to bogota with 20 minutes to spare. They refused to ask to hold next plane extra 5 minutes so we could make it through security and make the flight. Also refused to give us free access to the lounge even though we were then stuck in bogota airport for an extra 7 hours."
Pros: "Dame"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "It was good"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding process was not bad. They boarded all passengers at once instead of by rows. I requested a Asian Vegetarian and instead I got a meas 99% pasta and 1% vegetable. Very poor food."
Pros: "Schedule at stated, the seat even though it was in the back, no one bothered to move in or out thru out flight."
Cons: "I know airplane food is not suppose to be the best, but this time was way below the norm. Flight attendants didn't pay too much attention as this airline normally does. The entertainment system is ok but it's content needs to be updated, not enough new movies."
Pros: "I would say the crew is nice and boarding process was easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours in Santiago while on the runway due to technical difficulties. This caused my missed connection in Lima, therefore I had to wait from 10:45am to 5:30pm in Lima airport for a flight to Bogota, then after that catch another flight to Miami. I lost a whole day I had planned in Miami, arrived at 2:30AM when nobody could pick me up. Avianca didn't give me a voucher for food or transportation or even access to VIP lounges in Lima. I will never fly Avianca."
Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Cons: "The time in the check in Line was horrible, why the people who made your check in on line wait around at airport, more that the people don't have check in? It is absurd!!"
Pros: "Avianca an excelente company"
Pros: "Everyone was lovely anf kind"
Cons: "Crowded gates at boarding area. Long bus ride to aircraft."
Pros: "A relatively short flight in an Airbus. Went in business and everything was done well."
Cons: "Not sure it is worth paying for business on a single aisle short flight."

Very stressful transfer to our Copa flight as the flight change from United hadn't been updated and we were unable to check in until that was resolved after being told by both airlines that it was the others issue.

Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."
Cons: "No food.long flight if you come from a connecring flight. They serve pretzels which exclude people who don't est wheat. Serve an option of mixed nuts.breakfast was the ssme a cookie serve a rice cake ootion. I ordered celiac snd got the cookie on the Panama City to Asuncion flight"
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"
Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "..."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive and cordial."
Cons: "United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."
Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst airline I’ve taken in a while .. you can tel they want is $$. From charging to change seats. To have VERY LITTLE leg room (and I’m 5’2”). Charging for entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable. Crew seemed embarrassed. The crew was fine and did their job."
Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"
Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."

Cons: "No food. Delayed. Bad crew"

Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "Food not Not any enterteinmet unless you pay"
Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "No food, no great entertainment,very tight space"
Pros: "The crew was Amazing!"
Cons: "It was hard to be on an international flight without any power options to charge or entertainment. It seems that a long flight out of the country should provide at least 1 amenity."
Cons: "I did not like that there was no food. Long flights are supposed to give some, at least a small sandwich."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Much better flight from HOU-PTY. Crew was more friendly. Option to qatch free movies on my personal device is great."
Cons: "4 hour flight and only a small pouch of savory snacks and some mints! Leg room is very limited."
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "It was indeed good experience."
Pros: "Airline personel were all very pleasant and eager to help, just not very effective"
Cons: "paid entertainment"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "I liked the staff and comfort the most"
Cons: "I mean is not anybodys fault but its lame that now everything has to be paid, from entertainment to food and all of that!"
Pros: "Soso"
Cons: "Was good"
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Cons: "The pilots were late which cost us our departure so that we ran into restrictions based on weather. Thus we missed our connection in Panama City. United should ensure pilots are on time."
