I liked the friendliness of the crew and comfortable flight. All good.
Cons: "Due the COVID-19 El Salvador closed its boarders, leaving me unable to fly. I have sent two emails, called and spoke to a customer service representative who treated me unprofessionally and rude. After that I have been calling numerous times with a wait of over 25 minutes each time and I still have to answer from you as a company. I am extremely disappointed and want an answer soon."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, stranded for three days. No number to call, no communication. Still in the middle of it now... no help."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and efficient in performing their duties, the meal choices were very good and both flights departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew treated me with disrespect, I ordered flight ticket with 2 bags deposit and 1 bag with me to the plane. one of my bags is a surfing board and it wasn’t written any where that it’s not like a regular bag. They charged me 150$ more for one way and they will charge me 150$ more on the way back"
Cons: "I paid on bringing my surf board like a flight ticket for a person with 2 bags! It’s unbelievable and unfair to put me in this situation! I hope that you will do something about that so I won’t need to pay again on150$ for my surfboard."
Pros: "I liked that everything was smooth and everyone was helpful"
Cons: "The attention of the staff could have been better, never the less, they were an amazing crew."
Cons: "Too warm in cabin. Someone was sitting in my seat 7D and actually began to negotiate w me to sit somewhere else."
Pros: "Nothing, really, except that our luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "Absurd boarding area in Panama. Totally third world, or maybe a livestock holding pen is a better description. You have to go through security screening at the gate AGAIN, so those ridiculous $5 bottles of water you just bought to survive the wait in the overcrowded, hot waiting area? Throw them away or drink now, says the screening agent. I will never take a flight with a connection in Panama again."
Pros: "Let me think..."
Cons: "I called Copa Airlines and the person on the phone told me they had NO online checkin. She told me I had to drive to the airport (SFO - 60 minutes from my home) to check in!!! Poor information. Bad food. Smells awful, cheap. Poor wine. Don't serve anything rather than bad food. They seem rather disorganized. Captain and copilot were okay. They landed the plane."
Cons: "I CALLED ON THE WAY IN AND OUT FOR A VEGAN OR VEGETERIAN MEAL, BUT IN THE PLANE I NEVER GOT IT. I WAS STARTING ON THE FLIGHT"
Pros: "The crew was nice. I had the front seats ehich were super comfortable."
Pros: "my flight going to Peru was disappointing the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I tried to get help from the steFf but they just smile and walk away service was terrible on my way back from Peru the plane broke down in Bogotá Columbia we were trapped inside the plane for three hours with no air-conditioning we disembarked and they offered us to stay in a hotel but the hotel voucher took a very long time to receive we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flights very disappointed will not fly Avianca again"
Cons: "Hire competent SteFf"
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and plane was comfortable. Crew was great and so the Captain and his staff"

Cons: "Plane was half empty and not allowed to move to unused seats. Excuse was something about weight distribution. Sounded like a very bad excuse."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable and they changed my flight 3 times"
Pros: "My seatmate was the only good thing on this flight."
Cons: "Boarding left a majority of passengers standing on the ramp for 10+ minutes. Business boarding seems non-existent. Lavatory had no facial tissue and ran out of tp. Service was meh. Hand towels were heated up wet wipes. Hardware was ancient. Enforcing safety rules was not a priority."
Pros: "We were in business and it was comfortable."
Cons: "When we bought business we thought it would be the same plane we flew to Quito on that had seats that went into beds. It wasn’t."
Pros: "It’s was all good great service and great stuff"

Pros: "I always try to book a flight with Avianca when traveling to Central America and South America .good food..excellent service"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "We were late and then just had to sit there for a long time"
We booked Caribbean Plus and Business Class.. The problem was that in Toronto the staff we would collect our bags in POS, but we had to pick up our luggage in GEO, do immigration, and customers, and go from one terminal to the other with all our suitcases and 2 kids.. Not nice and not cool. Wont do that layover in GEO again
Pros: "Crew was great. Space was good."

Cons: "They turned the air on high to sell blankets. The boarding process was an unorganized mess. The plane was filthy!"
Pros: "The crew members were excellent in terms of the quality of their service."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable due to my long legs. The pilots didn't do a good job at landing the plane at NMIA in Kingston. It felt like someone was being trained to fly the plane."
Pros: "Everything very smooth, employees very pleasant, very efficient arrived early the seats were comfortable, enough room to stretch, food was decent, not all airlines operate this way anymore."
Cons: "Need air freshener in the washrooms"
Pros: "The flught was routine, with no huge delays and the type of service expected on a 2 hour flight, including a sandwich and beverage. There was in flight entertainment but we elected to use our own devices."

Pros: "Onetime, pleasant flight crew, nice interaction with the pilot"
Cons: "Waited on board for a bout 20 minutes for bag to be loaded. In-flight entertainment drab"
Cons: "Terrible airline and airport system... the boarding system is a disaster... after waiting in line for so long they send you to different counters to pay for bags... on top of that they didn’t check in one of the 6 in my group by the attendant’s mistake and they closed the flight in us...there is a bussing system that “takes you to the plane” and when we finally made it to our gate the bus made their last of the 2 trips to the plane. So we lost our flight to Cusco and ruined our entire first day of touring in Cusco..... your system or multiple check in/ cashier/customer service counters is a disaster and it makes zero sense. I will NOT fly latam again."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and we the customers were very happy to have this team"
Cons: "None it was a great flight"
Pros: "Nothing much, really."

Pros: "Great crew and competent pilots! We arrived safe and on time - always a big plus"
Cons: "Seats, as in so many planes, were cramped and small for larger people."
Cons: "The flight was fine, but the aircraft arrived 3 hours late. That’s a long wait."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Nice 787"
Cons: "Very cramped no room to move. I can't believe the meals that were served. Very small portions. A slice of bread for breakfast. No butter just dry bread and coffee!!"
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Cons: "No more seats, rescheduled for the next day. poor service"
Pros: "That we eventually got a flight home."
Cons: "Being stuck in Boston and Ottawa for 2 extra days and adding around $1200 on to our trip in hotels alone (I was travelling with 4 kids on a school trip and my wife). Additionally, we didn’t find out the flights were cancelled until we arrived at the airport. Apparently, they had been cancelled 2 hours before but there was no notification. Air Canada offered no help whatsoever and the guy at the “service” desk in Boston literally said there was nothing he could do to help. Not even find a new flight. Spent 90 minutes on the phone trying to re-book, plus re-booking hotel along the way."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Our connecting flight from Toronto to Thunder Bay was cancelled. AC put us in a hotel for the night. Thanks for the $15 dinner voucher. Almost paid for the salad. Then we had to get up at 530am to get the 6am hotel shuttle in order to get back to airport for our 8am flight. They seem to always cancel the 9pm flight from Thunder Bay to Toronto because not full enough. And the last flight is over sold so we have to stay the night in Toronto. Then don't offer the 9pm flight. Passengers have other commitments in their life's. We don't need AC to just hold us over for the night because one of their flights is have empty."
Cons: "There were too many things to mention, but I must say the customer service is not a strong point neither is a customer first mindset. The airlines apparent made several changes between my trip and I was threaten with additional bag fees when my ticket was very clear for two carry-ons and to checked bags, which also confirmed when I confirmed my seat request. After I was required to check my bags, I realized my earbuds were in the bag and the flight attendant did not give me a pair and actually told me I could purchase a pair...REALLY!I just did a 15 hour flight from Dubai, you were delayed by 2 hours on my last connecting flight and you can't comp a pair of .25 cent earbuds."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was drunk. The flight was overbooked and the boarding agent asked people to stay for a later flight. There was also a Air Canada crew member who looked like he was on standby for our flight, his last name was Campbell. Once we boarded the plane we noticed that the crew member had been given a seat on the plane, where a mother with three children that was also on standby had to stay for a later flight. Not sure how 1) you overbook a flight, and much less 2) give a seat to a crew member over a customer."
Cons: "I wish Air Canada sent check-in emails for flights in as well as out. I didn't get a reminder check-in email when I was flying out and that worried me a bit that there may be something wrong with my reservation. It also irritated me that because I had booked my flight through Kayak and not Air Canada directly I was not able to make any changes to the reservation online - I had to call their reservation phone number (from another country) and be put on hold for 20 minutes (so needless to say it was an expensive phone call)."
