Ia€™m headed to Cartagena, Colombia, today, and already the experience of flying Avianca is proving a bit different from most airlines. As Ia€™m sitting at the gate a bit later at JFK, I witness what for me (an airline nerd) is a spectacular sight: a group of Avianca flight attendants, resplendent in red capes and modified bowler-style hats. Happily, the Avianca Airbus A330 aircraft that I board is impressive and nicely equipped, even in coach, where I (of course) find my seat. Bogotaa€™s El Dorado airport, unfortunately, is nowhere near as impressive as Aviancaa€™s Airbus. If you're passionate about travel to South America, Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond, then you've come to the right place for travel tips, hotel reviews and travel videos. First off, I tried twice by phone and Internet to choose my seat assignment and enter my Delta Skymiles number (Avianca has an agreement with Delta), with no luck.
Indeed, Ia€™m happy to report, Avianca still has one of the most unique and attention-getting flight attendant uniform in the Latin American skies.

Seats in economy have seatback coat hooks, fold-down coat-holders and even footrests, plus the precious winged headrests that for me are such a lifesaver when trying to sleep (those blow-up pillows always seem to deflate on me, and Ia€™m not into carrying a regular pillow). After passing through customs and immigrations, Ia€™m shuffled to a shuttle bus for a rather winding ride to Avianca’s domestic Puenta Aereo (Air Bridge) terminal, where nearly open-air covered walkways serve as gates. He's worked with some of the biggest consumer, in-flight and travel trade publishers that cover Latin America. Ia€™m accustomed to many foreign airlines not allowing online check-in in the United States, but this is one of the few cases where they wona€™t even let you pick a seat by phone.During check-in at John F. As a modern throwback to the days when airline uniforms were more than just variations on a business suit, I applaud Avianca for sticking with a look that makes every member of the cabin crew look special.
Avianca serves up a snack-size sandwich of turkey and cheese soon after take-off, and a couple hours before landing they come through with a full lunch, including salad, roll and dessert.
This may be some sort of new security regulation after the attempted Christmas bombing, but putting a lock on just one section a€” while leaving everything else unlocked, and also handing me my checked baggage a€” doesna€™t seem to make much sense.Of course, I quickly realized that hea€™d locked the section with my reading material in it.

When I went back to ask them to cut it off long enough for me to get out something to read, they said it would have to be done at the gate, after Ia€™ve passed security. So here I sit now, before security, waiting to eat and buy the New York Times, with full access to my computer but no access to my books. The customer service upon arrival at kansas city around this incident was the worse experience i have had in customer service.
