Lima is a city I love and enjoy travelling to. I try to go there at least once a year. Last Septembre my trip started in CLO, and after doing all the inmigration procces in Bogota, I was ready for a 2:45 minutes ride on the 787-800.

Some pictures taken at the Airport. Bogota Is a nice airport, a lot of traffic can be seen and the Avianca`s Vip Lounge is great.

After the seat belt sing went off, inmigration forms were given. This flight connects with SCL , BUE and SAO, so maybe only half of the people had Peru as their final destination

Hot towels first ad then two options for lunch: Chicken with rice and beet with potatoes

After lunch I decided to walk around the plane. I did not use de entertainment system in this flight.

    Riding the 787 is a pleasure when compared to LATAM's crappy A32S...but I don't think AV is really the best airline around, specially in Europe-bound flights.

    I'm glad you had a nice first 787 flight, thanks for sharing, saludos!

    Thanks for sharing this report with us. Great flight from beginning to the end with a nice and confortable cabin and a good catering. On the pictures the crew seems to be friendly and the uniform is smart. The 787 is a great plane to fly and the xtra large window are a nice feature.

    Thanks for this FR.
    It's great to get a widebody on a 3hour-flight and AV's 787 do have a nice cabin.
    Good catering also.
