Avianca customer review

(United States)

IAD-BOG-GRU. There was bad weather in WAS so we missed our flight from BOG-GRU. They are not required to give you anything except a flight to your destination in the case of an impossible connection. This being said is they paid for everything 3 meals and a four star hotel. Their planes are nice the service alright. They are a little slow in the way they get things done but other than their organization no bad comments tickets are cheap don't expect the best luxury in Economy but you get a good deal.

BOG-CLO in coach. New A318 with an exit row seat with the seat removed in front of me. Seat felt narrow but excellent legroom. No snack service offered just a drink on the short flight. Check in and security was a breeze in Bogota. All in a pretty good experience.

Madrid to Cali seats were comfortable staff pleasant and nice. A330 airbus is welcoming and the service onboard was good. I flew from UK with a connecting flight in Madrid then on to Cali. Aircraft was on time. Menu was nice especially on flights going to Colombia.

BOG-BCN-MAD-BOG with my two kids. A330-200 very modern great entertainment system. Seats in Economy are terrible for long-haul and the food was very poor. They were cheap tickets though.

LIM-BOG-MIA round-trip. Service was poor crew members did not smile during the flight just when leaving the plane. Food was not up to standard. We passed security in Lima with no problems once we arrived in Bogota we passed another security point even when we are on international connecting flights and another one once you are called to the waiting room in addition they called my name to let me know I needed to open my luggage for a random inspection. When I went with my keys they could not find the luggage. On the plane I tried to watch a movie but even with full volume on my speakerphones I could still hear the plane engines. I saw a bottle of 7-up in beverage/food cart and asked for that FA said that they did not have any but just coke or apple juice without apologies.

Avianca customer review

(United Kingdom)

Excellent airline. I flew with them between Bogota-Caracas-Quito-Bogota. Efficient and helpful staff. We were on a rather tight connection in Bogota-Quito and the queue for the security x ray machine etc. was such that we would miss the flight. I approached a passing lady wearing an Avianca uniform and explained our predicament within seconds a military lady with rather large gun ran up to us screamed "Quito" and gestured us to follow her. We were whisked to the head of the security queue and escorted to the gate where the ground crew were anxiously scanning for us and on to the flight. Aircraft very clean and flight crew polite and efficient.

ZRH-MAD-BOG-CLO on A330-200. Madrid to Bogota was very pleasant good ground staff accommodated my last minute seat change request. Friendly cabin crew plane in great condition with in-seat entertainment system. Compared to competitors (Air France Iberia) you get great value for money. Only negative the meal was rather disappointing quality and quantity wise.

MIA-BOG-EZE on new A330 clean and in excellent condition. Check it at MIA quick and efficient and priority access through security. Lounge in MIA was America's club which was very basic but staff friendly. Very friendly Cabin Crew offering Champagne and menus prior to departure. Meal service was quick and efficient - basic for business class but good. Meal on BOG-EZE less substantial than the 3 hour from MIA which I didn't understand and I've received much better quality and quantity of meals when flying Singapore Airlines economy. The seat on the A330 is difficult to sleep I'm 6'1 and I kept sliding down which made it hard to get comfortable. I found Avianca great value for money - considering its a new product and the US airlines business class on the same legs are old and tired.

Avianca customer review

(Colombia)

BOG-SCL-BOG. Avianca's new business class is bad. I used to be a fan of Avianca. It's usually a reliable airline but it's new business class is a mess. On short haul (if you can call a 6 hour flight from Bogota to NYC or Santiago short haul) seat comfort is terrible: almost zero recline and ridiculous pitch between rows. On long haul (A330) they just installed new angled seats which are terrible to sleep on. So if you go to Europe chose Iberia instead (fully flat) and within region LAN remains unbeatable in comfort and service. In Avianca the food service is also mediocre and the wine choice (Trio and Trivento - both very average) is the same for 24 months now. The only good elements are IFE on demand and the flight attendants who are friendly. Boarding in Bogota is a mess (no priority lanes) and lounge is also mediocre without enough seats on peak periods.

BOG-JFK return business. Most of the time Avianca uses A319/320 in this route. These planes have a terrible business class seat with limited recline. They are good for a 2 hour flight but not for a long flight such as BOG-JFK (aprox 6 hours). If you are lucky to fly 767 or the new A330 in this route you will have a good service from Avianca but not in these smaller planes. AVOD has a decent choice and food service was OK (although I think that travellers would prefer a breakfast before arrival at 6am than a dinner at departure time on mid-night). It's sad to see Avianca placing a bet on this seat configuration for long routes such as Santiago or JFK since comfort level is substandard.
