Boeing 787 Business class LAX to Bogota departing 8:15PM. Don't expect a cocktail hour. One hour after takeoff the carts are rolled right out and you get dinner. A thimble of wine, only refreshed if you flag someone down. Nothing remarkable about the food which I suspect might have been flown up from Bogota.
Flew Bogota to Madrid. Modern plane, IFE system was pretty good, if a bit laggy. Lots of films and music available. The food portions were a bit stingy though. The wine was nice.
No overhead stogare due to Crew Rest Area above the middle part (between the fuselage and the cabin)
The toilets noted between rows 22 and 23 are incorrect. There are just 2 toilets in the centre of the plane. The other toilets do not exist. There were therefore up to 6 people waiting for each toilet at certain times with people hopping between lanes. Row 23 severely inconvenienced by this.
Service was very good on our Bog-LHR flight. The galley is quite close, so you will hear noise from it. But since this flight departs late at night you will be able to sleep properly in the flat bed. The complimentary comfort kit is Tumi and it has everything you need. The seat is quite private and you can barely notice the p...
I love this reverse herringbone seat layout! The seats are very private. My seat was comfortable, and just the right distance from the flight attendants talking in the galley. The windows don't have shades. There is a button you press and the tint becomes darker or lighter. The 2 windows are large. Comforter and pillow are good,...
Nice seats , brand new aircraft, but the inflight service was awful, it seems that it is an Avianca standard to have rude, none smile staff, they are very harsh, noisy among them (they talk loudly in the galley), very sad, I think this was my last flight with them, after SAO-BOG-LAX-BOG- SAO
4 lavatories in economy. No crossover aisles for stretching legs you can only walk in one aisle. Back galley closed off. Open areas in diagram do not really exist. Row 8 does have more legroom but those are reserved for Lifemiles elite and nonrevs.
This plane has an excellente Bussines classwhere you can have your own space independat from other seats. This row has a little beat less space than the ones in the back rows in business class.
Last row between bussines and economy, a lot of babies on that area, noise.
The business seats in the first row have definitely less spase for the legs. You might not notice if you are not tall but for me (1.96m) i wasn't able to strech out at all. I was glad the flight wasn't booked out, so i could move in one of the back rows.
Even if it is close to the bathroom there is a little bit more space outside the seat where you can place hand luggage, shoes...
Quite confortable, good entertainment system, nice new plane
