Flights Review

Mar 11, 2020

We didn’t realize that seat assignments were an extra fee and we must have been late to the game because we had to sit on opposite ends of the plane. Frustrating.

Mar 11, 2020

We understand that they need to have maximum seating but the seats are so close I could barely get my carry on under the seat in front of me. Really?

Very good flight

Dec 22, 2019

Long delay to receive luggage and there was no real beverage service on the flight. These issues should be fixed. Otherwise, great!

Dec 7, 2018

Take off was 30 minutes late but flight was fine and destination is a super place. It was a great travel day!

Luv Avianca! It’s the best airline!
