Pros: "Not really Seat cushion hard ."
Cons: "Boarding disorganised..little management of the process"
Cons: "The seat recliners didn't work for 3 of our seats. The buttons were so hard and were not functional. 2 of the crew members were NOT welcoming while others were. Not expected from Emirates."
Pros: "Flight attendants are very friendly, actually smile, rather than scowl at you, as so many of the American carriers do."
Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."
Cons: "Flight lest 2 hours late. Didn’t have my choice of meal. Cabin crew very inattentive. Worst flight ever with Emirates in business class"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "I wished I was in business class..."
Pros: "Great service and attitudes by staff."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "South African airlines allowed me to reserve a seat. But Emirates didn't have it in the system when I checked in."

Pros: "I love everything about Emirates."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Food, and space"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "On our departure flight the entertainment system stopped working completely at my daughter's seat mid-flight (the whole screen went black, remote control and all). The flight attendant tried and was unable to fix it, so they moved a passenger in the row my husband and I were in and put my daughter there. None of the entertainment systems worked well, the touch screens were barely responsive - they definitely need updating. On our return flight the power in the whole row that my three pre-teen kids were in stopped working. Again the flight attendant tried unsuccessfully to fix. My husband and I switched rows with them so they could continue to watch movies. Each time we called the flight attendant she came, said she would try to reset the systems and that we should wait a few minutes. We waited and ultimately had to go find her again to be told the same thing again. After this happened three times she sent the manager over who said she could not fix it since that would mean that the whole area would have to be reset and they didn't want to disturb anyone else. The only solution they offered was to give my husband and I open seats (not together and not near our kids) around the cabin. We did not want to split up, so my husband and I spent the rest of the hours of the flight in the dark (lights didn't work either as they are connected to the system) reading with the light from our cell phones. None of the people who came to assist us really seemed to care at all about our comfort or situation."
Pros: "Nice flight sttendents"
Cons: "Seats too small"
Pros: "Efficient and good actually good for airline food"
Cons: "Electronic equipment a bit out dated and below standard"
Pros: "We got upgraded to business class--best experience of my life!!!"
Cons: "No one single thing was wrong"
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "For an 8 hour flight - we were given a sandwich and breakfast. Expected to be served dinner and breakfast given the time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good and entertainment great. Space between front row seats in economy class was good."
Cons: "all good."
Pros: "The flight from Johannesburg to Dubai on an Airbus A380 was the best , the return was on the 777ER it's a bit older avoid it if you can, I prefer the a380 it's roomy, more comfortable and modern, the food was good, the cabin crew very helpful and friendly and both flights were on time. I'll be flying only Emirates from now on"
Cons: "Just the coffee was terrible lol,"
Cons: "The fact that I didn't fly due to ill health and got no refund"
Pros: "i like the cabin crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "E v e r y t h i n g ..... I understand now why they are the number ONE airlines in service. We travel enough to see the BIG difference. Thumbs up. Please don't change !!!!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The food was decent."
Cons: "While checking in, they demanded me to show them my ticket back to the US and insinuated that I will stay in Rio permanently. There was a very disorganized line to get into the plane. They also forgot to give me immigration forms for Brazil."
Pros: "The ice entertainment is great, from movies to series and such a vast choice to pick from. Was the only thing that kept me going on the flight."
Cons: "For a 8 hour flight the seats are not great. I'm only 5'7" and still didn't feel I had much room for my legs. Food wasn't the best but I've never been a fan of airplane food. Had a good pick of soft drinks."
Pros: "I traveled between New York and Chennai with layover in Dubai. 1.Flight experience was excellent between Dubai to New York (JFK)"
Cons: "1.the seat that i had on Flight from New York to Dubai was cramped,it had a decent entertainment system though. 2. Between Chennai to Dubai ,Flight experience was not good, Seating and entertainment in particular was not good , it was too cramped and too much glare on the TV screen, probably because i had a window seat."
Pros: "They still catch my attention, and while traveling with them I continue to enjoy this airline."
Cons: "As per my Oslo - Dubai review (read there for more details), they cancelled my flight, put me on a flight a day later, and then left me with the bill and the inconvenience. This was the connector out of Dubai and back to Johannesburg. I've flown with them many times and I've picked up one or two small cut backs they've made like no hot towel when you get onboard, only before your arrival, and the meal seems a little more slimmed down (but still pretty tasty), They used have one or two extras which they've now taken away. Not sure why?"
Cons: "Rude and racist cabin crew!"
Pros: "The crew member was excellent,she went all out to make my journey easy and comfortable.I have sent an email to her superior,please use her as an example.if all attendants can serve and see to passengers like her will be beneficial for emirates"
Pros: "Crew and food are great."
Cons: "Great in-seat entertainment choices with ICE but screen resolution and touch sensitivity were terrible. Time to upgrade your equipment!"
Cons: "Food while trip to India was good But food while trip back to sfo was very bad"
Pros: "Friendly staff awesome planes wonderful experince"
Cons: "Service was a bit slow. Drinks and food took quite sometime to arrive."
Pros: "First leg to Dubai was spacious and my vegan meal was really good. Second leg i got upgraded to business which was f'ing amaaaaazing, Emirates business is like nothing i could ever have imagined, 5 star service!"
Cons: "The hangover after drinkong copious amounts of Moet haha. So really nothing"
Pros: "It was a smooth flight"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "The food was delicious, and I received the special meal I had requested with no problem. Again, great selection of TV shows and movies."
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit put off, just not very friendly. Maybe something had happened that put them all in a bad mood I'm not sure. Despite this they did help people without complaint, but you could tell they didn't want to be there. Again on this flight the TVs were an old model that was difficult to use, you had to push really hard and finagle your finger to get it to read what you were pressing."
Pros: "Low fat meal was great! (the salmon one)"
Cons: "They broke my checked in luggage!!!"
Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew is freindly and helpful. Early Check-in was easy, fast and convenient."
Cons: "Leg space, seat cushion needs to be more- it seems claustrophobic, timings for the flight- need some as a day time flight rather then being up all night, going through the channel of air bus to the flight...."
Pros: "Granted I was tired after being in transit for 24 hours, but this final of 4 long-haul flights was a real bummer compared to the other flights. Boeing 777 packed to 100% capacity."
Cons: "Really cramped and squished compared to other flights. Toilets at DXB were filthy (I searched around for the cleanest, which was still disgusting), with the cleaning attendant standing around in the restroom doing nothing. Duty Free shops really expensive compared to European airports. Meal on board (breakfast) was really terrible (and that taking into account that airline breakfast is always bad), really the worst I've ever had on a plane, even the Croissant was chewy and very dry. Emirates has become a massive sausage machine people-mover. It has loss its finesse and exceptional service."
Pros: "Awesome flight...got a business class ticket and I loved each moment during the journey"
Cons: "Indian food was not that tasty and quality needs to improve"
Pros: "The staff were wonderful and efficient. The toilets were clean and the food was much better than my first flight with emirates although the portions were small on the main meal with only four spinach ravioli offered in a tomato sauce."
Cons: "Passengers do not fit on to their seats and overflow into the space you are occupying which is so tiny as it is. There is not enough room to even reach down to pick something up if you drop it. Overhead lockers are full. I think planes either need to be redesigned with sleeping compartments (such as the second class compartments the trains have) for overnight flights or seats need to be slightly larger to make up for the fact most people are larger today."
Pros: "Everything was great. They have it together."
Cons: "THe Hostess was not attentive and had to ask for things a few times. No goody basket was given although some pax did get it."
Pros: "Service, Flight, food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "How nice the crew was and how smooth and quick both the boarding and un boarding process on the A380. The sticker options and menus for meals and needing to be woken up if you chose such."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Old plane. Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I am always impressed with the standard of service provided by Emirates, you can normally be very sure of the standards."
Cons: "They had no omelets for breakfast, but did apologies as the other choices were not to my taste."

I was so happy and at ease with the crew 100 %the best ever

If there is any possibility to avoid the delay in boarding, that would be great

Check in at Chennai was painful

Excellent.

Nice

This flight was cancelled

Recommend Qatar Airways to everyone! Service, leg room, and food are all great.

Pros: "Great crew! Excellent business class suite"
Cons: "The Nairobi airport experience could use a bit of help. there's no a/c and even late at night, it was uncomfortably hot everywhere. Once I'd checked in to the gate I was trapped and couldn't easily leave to get water or go to the restroom, which was increasingly annoying as my flight was delayed. Pretty sure all of this is beyond Qatar Airways' ability to control."
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Perfect"
Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "We were told to board, but then kept in another area close on 1 hour before we could get on the plane and this area had no bathroom facilities. The spread of seating on the plane made no sense with many open seats but also many squashed rows of people. The crew was visibly tired and irritated, they also ran out of a few catering items. It seemed as if last minute, a few different flights were combined into this one which lowered the quality."
Pros: "Food and leg room"
Cons: "All was fine"
Pros: "Entertainment and food is always great with Qatar!"
Cons: "After I got in my seat an Islamic lady came and said that I was in her seat. I looked at her ticket and while it was the right seat number, she was on the wrong flight. I got a stewardess to help her. She had gone through 3 boarding pass checks and was still on the wrong flight. They let her fly!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and delightful."
Cons: "The crew was amazing and delightful but should provide food to kids first before even those special diet or vegetarians."
Cons: "The vegetarian option for breakfast was a stale waffle with apple compote. Inedible."
Pros: "Food selection. However, the snacks need to be readily available on long flights."
Cons: "Entertainment is lacking behind other international carriers"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Food was terrible. It’s worse among the airlines."
Cons: "The flight is too long"
Pros: "They flight"
Cons: "Complementary hotel for long stops"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "It seems the major airlines use older aircraft when the destination of the flight is a third world country(or Africa). The seats aren't as comfortable and the entertainment system (screens) are not as good as a Qatar and Europe bound flights."
Pros: "The flights attendants were very helpful and polite. What I enjoyed the most was the level of comfort I had. I was able to sleep for almost the entire flight. That's why it felt like it wasn't even a long flight."
Cons: "We did leave a little late but it was out of the control of the pilots and flights attendants."
Pros: "There was adequate seat room. The device was good."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn’t like."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."
Cons: "On time. Reasonably good. Satisfied with everything."
Cons: "The aircraft was changed and passengers were required to check in their hand luggage, yet remove their electronics from their hand carry. In my case I had several electronic items which I had to carry onto the aircraft and store awkwardly which created a major risk of my camera and laptop being damaged in the process. This is not the kind of service I expect from Qatar Airways, especially considering the exorbitant ticket prices."
Cons: "Seat to LA was broken"
Pros: "I was surprised with the quality of gluten free meals served for me, it was well organised and taken care of where I never had to wait. My flight schedules were changed few days before departure by Qatar Airways, but only thing I had to do was to confirm that I have noted, my seats and all the rest of details intact, excellent."
Cons: "When the flight is changed by airline for their convenience, they would have given preferential treatment to the passengers involved. We had to bare the cost of food and make us comfortable on our own due to the delay in transit."
Pros: "The crew aboard the flight were kind and thoughtful and definitely oriented toward service."
Cons: "The security process at the gate was really disorderly. Perhaps it is because it is a new and extra step required by the US but it was definitely not efficiently handled."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff from check in to arrival!"
Pros: "I freceuntly fly between the US and South Africa and only fly via Qatar Airways, and every experience thus far has been great. The food is good quality, friendly crew and I would recommend it to anyone."
Cons: "The sandwiches are a little dry and movie selection a little limited."
Pros: "Unfortunately..."
Cons: "...as mentioned, I don't have the pleasure of rating this flight because of the boarding delays and missing the flight. Very disappointing."
Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"
Pros: "Service of air stewards very friendly and polite"
Cons: "This goes for Qatarfigjta from harare to Doha and Doha to Washington DC and back. I am not going to give individual report on each one. Food - my daughter could barely eat anything and the vegetarian meals were stone cold most of time. It was hard to eat at Qatar airport because not only is the food terrible (Burger King and bad Asian food) but outrageously expensive. Our media system did not work for one leg. ** way to many ads on your media system. Every time you watch a new TV episode, you have to sit through 5-6 ads for stuff that is not interesting and the same each time. ** plane info on media system keeps reverting to Arabic even when English is indicated as preferred la gauge. We had to place our iPads in checked luggage for flights from harare to USA as we went through Qatar. *** I asked for quiet seats and was given seats near kitchen and toilet even though I booked in hours in advance. One leg had my ten year old daughter and I in different rows even though I checked in 4-5 hours in advance Of flight . ** staff moved my hand luggage without my permission and without informing me - it was stressful trying to find it."
Pros: "Excellent experience overall, the food was decent, the seats were comfortable and had enough space for me at 6ft tall, the staff were very friendly and helpful, entertainment selection was good with plenty of new movies out. I had no problems with my layover. The baggage allowance was great as I had extra luggage from my trip. I'm very happy with their customer service, the day before my first flight I received a phone call from Qatar's customer service saying that due to delays I wouldn't be able to make my connecting flight to Edinburgh so they would like to book me on another flight instead of me having to wait 24 hours in Doha. I was thoroughly impressed with this service."
Cons: "I did not have wifi available from Doha-Johannesburg"
Pros: "I had a great experience with overall trip."
Cons: "I was not very impressed with hostesses service. on the second leg of the trip. The boarding process was not organized at all. We have zone numbers but people just boarded at first come first served basis"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "On time departure, friendly crew. Comfortable seats for economy class, plenty of entertainment options. A pleasant experience"
Cons: "The food was okay. The hot wrap/calzone served first was not very tasteful. The breakfast/brunch was better. Not much to dislike overall."
Pros: "Again on time and effortless boarding made the overall experience a good one."
Cons: "Our suitcase was damaged...still in the process of trying to get it fixed. Hopefully it will be done soon. I will then update this report. Could maybe clean the toilets as it did become a bit messy."
Pros: "Generally ok but not as good as other Middle East carriers"
Cons: "The leg room on this flight felt less generous than other carrier and the food was poor almost inedible. The aircraft (777) seemed much noiser than other aircraft I have flown on and the noise from the toilet flush could be heard 10 rows away"
Cons: "Not enough check in desks operating - very long wait"
Pros: "Service & cleanliness."
Cons: "Nothing I remember."
Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Pros: "Everything was taken care of and I never had to worry. I felt well treated, important, my things were taken care of and respected, the plane was clean and had great in flight options for food and entertainment. The staff was respectful and nice."
Pros: "No problems at all!"
Pros: "The service from the crew was amazing"
Cons: "The food was not bad compared to some air lines"
Cons: "I had to go through 4 passport inspections by Qatar, was that really necessary? 3 of them within 10 min. 1 before the security check at the gate, 1 after and one more just before boarding."
Pros: "Movie selection was good."
Cons: "Everything else. Boarding was chaos, Ground crew should show authority while boarding passengers."
Pros: "Seat reclining was good. Fleece blankets were warm"
Cons: "Blankets had a really bad smell Food options were very limited - even bread was eggless"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Luggage lost, unhelpful Kigali Helpdesk. Johannesburg VERY helpful"
Pros: "I was happy to avail of Wifi in the sky."
Cons: "No entertainment! For an major international flight, one expects some seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Well organized on check in. Attentive"
Cons: "It was ok"
Pros: "New plane, fresh feel. Food is ok."
Cons: "Airline feels basic and no frills."
Pros: "Crew members are extremely polite and friendly. Flight was delayed leaving Kigali captain spoke to each passenger and apologise - great professionalism."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited."
Pros: "Took the newly opened route between Cape Town and Harare. Was a great experience. Thanks to RwandAir it is easier and cheaper to fly directly between these African cities. Lots of potential on the route. RwandAir really opening up business and leisure opportunities much needed in these areas. Nice to avoid Tambo airport."
Cons: "Both flights were slightly delayed (which happens), information about the delay could be better at Harare airport. But no biggy."
Pros: "The Flight attendants are all awesome and undesrtanding...and the open wifi ate Kigali airport was great."
Cons: "No vegetarian option Bad boarding procedures, no one gets direction and it was very slow"
Cons: "THERE WAS MEAT INSIDE MY "VEGETARIAN" MEAL!!! This is totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "Food and in-flight services"
Cons: "Entertainment package"
Pros: "Rwanda Air is the best"
Cons: "Landing at Kigali was bit rough"
Pros: "I think that I appreciated all the details during the trip. As I get my kayak app in my IPhone, i firstly received a notice that the check in started.... At each step, I could see the time discounted through my phone"
Cons: "As I said, I liked everything. From the departure to the landing"
Cons: "My luggage was broken into and stolen. They sawed off the zip on my suitcase and broke the handle. Stole a number of personal items including a belt, perfume, t-shirts and cash."
Pros: "Food and free WiFi. Ample seating space."
Cons: "Rerouted through Dar-es-Salaam at last minute rather than being a direct flight as scheduled"
Pros: "Fligh was on time, front desk staff were very helpfful, flight staff were friendly"
Pros: "That there were not many people on the second leg and that the plane was clean"
Cons: "The fact that we had an itinerary change with an extra stop (unannounced until 15 minutes before I boarded the flight) that delayed us by 1+ hours, that we were delayed from leaving Kigali by 1.5 hours and none of the crew could explain what was going on, that the rwandair staff was rude. I mean... It's Rwanda so I didn't expect much customer service (they are generally particularly bad by African, European, Asian or American standards) and I definitely wasn't impressed"
Pros: "Everything was perfect. On time arrival."
Cons: "Loud Nigerian co-passengers"
Pros: "Timeliness, Service, Cleanliness Comfort"
Pros: "Nice blankets. Good service."
Cons: "Food wasn't that great and juices were very sweet (tasted like sugar water)"
Pros: "Friendly staff, decent snacks and entertainment options"
Pros: "New airline. Left 20 mins early."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the captain gave good info."
Cons: "Why was dinner served at 2AM? They woke me up three times to serve drinks and food and the cabin lights were never turned off, for an overnight flight! The Kigali airport waiting area is awful, and the holding area made it so that every child had to use the bathroom as soon as we boarded."
Pros: "the snack was terrific!"
Pros: "Information during flight"
Cons: "No TV or programmes to entertain slong"
Pros: "Everything was on time and comfortable. Will take the same flight again in the future."
Pros: "Good food, friendly and professional staff, a new and sparkling clean plane, swift retrieval of luggage upon arrival in Kigali. Thank you!"
Pros: "Overall comfort and staff friendliness"
Cons: "Landing was a bit turbulent"
Pros: "Flight was delayed over an hour. Otherwise the plane was new, everything felt good, and I have nothing to complain about!"
Pros: "The staff at the airports were friendly."
Cons: "After thorough check (and hours at the airport) at the holiday destination, Dubai, my luggage was deemed lost. The DXB lost luggage staff helped me complete a 'lost luggage' report. However, the staff member told me that 'if' RwandAir found my luggage, I would be responsible for going to the airport as RwandAir does not have lost luggage delivery like most airlines. For the six days of my holiday, I waited for phone calls and checked emails expecting to hear from RwandAir. I heard nothing, RwandAir had made no effort of any kind to locate my luggage they had mishandled. Upon flying back home, I checked with the initial airport (DXB), the transit airport (Kigali), and my final destination airport (Brazzaville). My luggage was not in any of the airports mentioned. In each airport, and the RwandAir office at the Brazzaville airport, I presented the initial lost luggage form from the prior week and it was apparent that nobody, no airport, and no office was interested in finding my luggage. RwandAir, at no point, apologized for losing my belongings or in any way attempted to make up for seriously harming my holiday- not to mention the fact that it appears I will never see my possessions that were last seen being taken by RwandAir staff at the beginning of my holiday travels."
Pros: "New plane, friendly crew"
Cons: "Cramped seating, poor signage & boarding announcements"
Pros: "Staff courteous and friendly"
Cons: "Some choices on menu do not do well by time of serving ie fish"
Pros: "Like Kigali it was clean and efficient."
Cons: "Food is almost inedible"
Pros: "Plane was clean and very comfortable, staff was courteous. Surprisingly good food for a short flight"
Cons: "Changed flight times without informing passengers on BOTH of the legs. Staff were polite, but were more interested in following the rules than helping people get on their flights. No customer feedback forms were available"
Pros: "I like the overall service in the plane."
Cons: "I didn't like changing the boarding time."
Pros: "Planes were great and flight crew excellent."
Cons: "On arrival at Kigali airport we were quickly moved through security to the departure area. This area was hot and without any facilities for toilets or water. We sat there for at least 1 hour and was a low light in out trip."
Pros: "Everything went well as expected..."
Pros: "movie dinner on each leg of the flight"
Cons: "the movie didn't finish in the first leg and they didn't show it for the second leg, so I never learned the ending the flight arrived 40 minutes late"
Cons: "Too cold on the plane - way, way too cold"
Cons: "We were delayed by 1 hour because more cargo was being loaded on to the plane. When we arrived in Kigali, we found that our bags had been left behind to make room for other cargo. We arrived and checked in well before the 1 hour cutoff and we were under the weight limit, so there was no reason for our baggage to be left behind. We were informed that our bags would NOT be delivered to us at our next destination, that the burden was on us to retrieve them AND there was no stipend or any type of refund to compensate us for the inconvenience. Since we were continuing our travel by road to Uganda, we had to pay extra to have a driver return to the airport the next day to retrieve and deliver our bags. This is very, very poor customer service!"
Pros: "The Rwandair plane was modern and clean. Kigali airport has a nice cafe, and check-in was efficient. The plane left a few minutes early."
Cons: "Check-in closes one hour before your flight. Economy class: Food was a clingwrapped sandwich. The attendant gave me two bottles of a good South African wine. Security has gotten quite uptight at Kigali airport. They now stop your cab a couple hundred meters short of the airport, and have a dog check the vehicle. You have to pass through another security checkpoint at the entry to the airport building, and a third security into the boarding area. The final security check even takes away any empty bottles you have. And don't take any fingernail scissors in your handcarry, even if they have blunt points. You may have an hour or more wait in preboarding, and without water or bathroom excess. So takke care of these needs in advance."
Pros: "Clean planes"
Cons: "Ground crew at NBO - Rwanda Air has Kenyan Airways do the work in the terminals. Bad idea!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "This airline is an operational nightmare. I purchased a ticket with a connection, and the second flight being a codeshare, two months in advance. On the day of travel, I checked in, checked two bags, and headed to the gate. An hour before the flight, a Rwandaair agent approached me to inform me that they were no longer code sharing with precision air, the second flight. Chaos ensued, my bags got lost, I got stuck in Nairobi, etc. in Nairobi, one of the Kenya airways agents literally said to me 'avoid Rwandaair and precision airlines - they are both airlines that do not follow any regulations, and not just operational, but safety as well.'"
Pros: "The flight times were perfect and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The food was just ok"
Cons: "The arrival time was stated as 1:40pm but in reality it was a 1:10pm arrival so I had arranged my driver to collect at the wrong time and he wasn't there when I arrived."
Pros: "Unfortunately i missed the flight from kla to Nairobi via Entebbe due to closue of Entebbe Road. Return from Nairobi was okey but was delayed for about 40 minutes"

Pros: "They were professional, timely and courteous. Except for one flight attendant who was a bit rude, the entire flight was enjoyable"
Cons: "The rude flight attendant who was welcoming people to the plane"
Pros: "Friendly staff, comfortable business class seat with lots of room, good breakfast"
Cons: "No priority checkin for business class and no priority boarding for business class. I don't those are even that hard to organize . Airport ground contractors haven't been instructed to provide service to business class?"
Pros: "It was a short flight and all went well. We even had time for a snack."

Cons: "The flight was delayed about 40 minutes."
Cons: "On my way to Colombia- I was made to pay $40 to check my skateboard, even though I was allowed to carry it onto the plane from the US to Panama. On the way back I was told that I could bring it on the plane if I took the wheels off. I did. They did not allow me, and made me check it anyway."
Cons: "Non entertainment system"
Pros: "Bety good service abording..."
Cons: "The entreteniment"
Pros: "The crew was friendly on all 4 legs of my trip. The short flight from PCY to BOG was fine."

Cons: "There is not entertaiment. The food could be better"

Cons: "Great company"
Pros: "I liked the food and the service from the crew."
Cons: "Entertainment screen and updated aircraft. Bogota to San Salvador flight was short and provided many inflight entertainment options and more comfortable seating ( leg room ). A this 6 hour flight was the opposite and extremely uncomfortable to be using an outdated aircraft for a long flight. I should have flown direct into LAX."
Cons: "Keep the business and star alliance gold boarding lanes open and exclusive for the respective customers for use at any time whenever they show up at the gate. Otherwise it is a chaos to board along with economy. Also, everything was broken in my business seat"

Pros: "The food again"
Cons: "Still no WiFi"
Pros: "Crew service inflight are very well trained."

I called the help desk and after 40 minutes and 4 different people they said that in fact that the flight 008 from Bohota to Miami was delayed. Very Poor communication between company departments and poor communication alerts to costumers. In addittion, the only explanation from counter staff was "airplane maintance". Really? For an international flight from Bogota where you have located your main airplane base ? I do believe that land staff is very poorly train compared to inflight crew. Land staff has very poor supervision to improve costumer service."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."
Cons: "I am really upset because I never received my luggage and was told that I would have to get it delivered to my house. I didn't appreciate the fact that I wasn't told about my luggage not getting in the plane until I landed and went to claim my luggage."
Pros: "Good service well kept airplanes"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Comfortable airplane. Crew was polite and helpful. I don’t usually eat in a plane, but the meal was not bad at all."
Cons: "First of all the flight was very late, so I missed my connection flight from Miami. I couldn’t get home on the other airline because it was full, so I had to buy another ticket to another city and had a family member pick me up, so we drove an additional hour. From the time I went to the airport in La Paz, took me 24 hours to get home. I had to work the next day."
Pros: "Even that the landing process was nothing simple , it took multiple times to complete the landing process and the pilot did a very good job."
Cons: "My luggage was delivered late, dirty and opened and they damage a book inside. It is not the first time that the company do that."
Pros: "Due to their overbooking I was almost foreced to stay, I was told that I was travelling at my own risk: please give me a break!"
Cons: "The pushy attitude of the check in hostesses"
Pros: "Love the trip very smooth. Everyone was very nice very organized"

Pros: "Excellent service can't ask for more"
Pros: "Super quick flight. Loved that they transferred the luggage for us while we switched flights."
Pros: "On time. Excellent service."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great."
Pros: "The staff in Bogota were oh so friendly compare to my previous experience in GYE. Same as when coming down from SJO. Beautiful. Keep it up! Friendly atmosphere just a delight, like it should be."
Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"
Pros: "Viaje placentero, a tiempo. Me gustó mucho las explicaciones pasando por rio hacha durante el viaje,.las asafatas muy atentos.Seguiré usando Avianca."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent flight. Seats were comfortable and well spaced. Each seat had an individual entertainment screen. Served juice and coffee on a one hour flight! Check in was easy and cabin crew friendly and professional. We will definitely fly Avianca again."

Pros: "Modern comforts, pleasantries, good service, clean, spacious Searle Inc. Great experience. Felt like flying in the old days. Great planes."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, Airline had many movies to choose from, crew was comforting. Flights were on time."

Pros: "Nice plane with good entertainment options"
Cons: "No collation in a 2h30 flight"
Cons: "Pessoal despreparado, levei meu cachorro de suporte emocional, me colocaram em uma poltrona qualquer, apertada. Sendo que em outras cias colocam na primeira fileira para o cachorro poder ficar no chao. O meu voo foi cancelado e me colocAram em outro horas depois, um transtorno, e para completar estou sem minhas malas, porque nao sabiam o que tinha acontecido. Estou em orlando sem nada! Nao recomendo!"
Pros: "Check in counter, in flight entertainment and food were good, alcohol included."
Cons: "to join the passengers for the next day flight in order to have a full plane. All other flights took off despite weather delays. On top of missing 2 work days because of their business decisions, everyone beginning their journey from Bogotá were considered "locals", thus creating a very tense situation with employees with lots of arguing and unprofessional behavior. Finally they agreed to accommodate everyone at the hotel, getting there after 7pm. 2 full days lost! Why do they offer flight frequency if they won't honor it? People make plans around their purchase, but they just don't give a damn. Will do my best to avoid this airline in the future and will not recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "Crew was nice, smooth flight"
Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "Forced to watch only 1 movie for the crew, and the seats eere not as comfortabale"
