Hello everyone, last march I had to travel to SAL from Cali, as the day I was flying there wasn´t a direct flight, I had two options: Flying COPA from Cali via Panama or flying to Bogotá and taking the flight AV 94 at noon which was my choice.

I arrived to Bogota around 9:30, had a walk around the aiport and proceeded to the international pier. Imigration was really quick and soon I was on my way to the VIP Lounge but not without taking some pictures of the airport.

A quick visit to Avianca´s Gold VIP Lounge and off to the boarding gate as we were going to leave on time


Not upgrade this time, so I took my seat 14K which is an emergency exit. Crew were polite and helpful with the passengers almost all of them had connecting flights in SAL
Flight time 2:45 minutes flying over Panama, Costa Rica and then straight to El Salvador.



After taxiing we were on hold for a while and then on our way to SAL


Once the seatbetl sign went off, immigration forms were give, and the on board service started with hot towels. Chicken or meat were the options for lunch with coffee and all sorts of drinks, always served with a smile.



My inflight entertaiment was the fantastic view from my window…

And Welcome to Monseñor Oscar Armulfo Romero y Galdamez.. ( I know it has got a long name).

It was a long walk to imigration and quite long queue to get into the country full of nice and polite people



Thank you very much for reading, you can see the video of the flight here

    Hola! Tanto tiempo!

    Me encantó tu informe. Centro América siempre me ha intrigado, especialmente El Salvador, Honduras y Nicaragua.

    BOG se ve enorme!

    LATAM still with TAM livery

    Me da la impresión de que latam no tiene muchas ganas de cambiar los colores de sus aviones, especialmente los TAM. Será que la actual librea va a durar poco? Ojalá, porque no me gusta. :P

    VivaAir descartó Chile como destino porque, según ellos, ya está bien atendido por las aerolíneas que hay. O sea que nadie me quiere salvar de latam. :'(

    My inflight entertaiment was the fantastic view from my window

    Definitivamente! Comparto tu opinión. Ya es suficiente con estar metido en una pantalla en la casa y en el trabajo!

    It was a bumby approach and landing

    Este "typo" que cometiste (bumby) me sorprendió porque en mi último informe escribí la misma palabra mal tres veces!! Debe haber alguna razón. Será que los hispanohablantes tenemos un corrector ortográfico integrado en el cerebro? XDD A lo mejor queremos escribir "bambú"!

    Muchas gracias por las bonitas vistas aéreas.

    Y las comidas! Por Dios! El servicio es espectacular! En latam con suerte te dan un sandwich si el vuelo es de más de tres horas y media!

    Parece que algunas fotos no aparecen en tu informe porque se cortó el encabezamiento [img] al principio.

    Gracias por compartir! :)

      Hola, gracias por escribir.
      Tienes razón, no me había dado cuenta del error, creo que ya lo corregí, ojalá no esté ahora bambú o algo así; al igual que las fotos que no se habían subido..
      El servicio de Avianca siempre es muy bueno en cuanto a su catering tanto en Económica como en Ejecutiva es una opinión personal porque hay mucha gente que lo critica.
      Muchas gracias por tus comentarios
