Bought complete tkt through Iberia. London Heathrow - Madrid - Santa Cruz - Cochabamba. Iberia online would not issue any boarding pass as first leg was by British Airways. BA online would only issue boarding pass for LHR - MAD. So you end up in transit in MAD with no onward boarding pass. Iberia desk will help but there aren't...

Overnight flight from Miami to Santa Cruz, Bolivia and then on to Buenos Aires. Very attentive cabin crew, good food and most of all . . . plenty of leg room. No problems with luggage transfer. Flight was on time at both ends. Airfare was good also. Everything considered, an excellent trip.

The plane is a jet (not a propellor) and the ride was very smooth. Staff are friendly and professional.

We didn't expect much from Boliviana Airlines after reading some reviews online. But, to our surprise, the service has been amazing. We managed to buy tickets online from Canada with no issue. The service was top notch - polite check-in staffs, no tardiness, all flight attendants (male crews only?) were very friendly. We fly a lot and based on the...

Nice but old plane. Leg room was great, but seat does not offer many opportunities for adjustments. The cabin was a bit worn down as it is an old plane, but functioning. Service was good, and food was OK. 14" screens in the isles showing a movie, but no personal entertainment system. So bring your tablet of phone with some...

This is a great airline. Boarding is very civilized, they have different lines and start generally on time. The process was smooth. Once on the plane we saw it was spotless and quite recent built. We took 4 different flights with them during out tour and were always satisfied with the quality of service

Flew Santa Cruz-Sucre and Uyuni-La Paz. No frill airline. Efficient check in. Boarding/deplaning on foot or by bus. Average seat comfort and legroom. No in-flight entertainment or USB ports (short flights). Snacks served. Overall uneventful and on time.

Round trip from La Paz to Uyuni for the Salt Flats. Both flights left early (and not just a few minutes - seems as soon as they think they have enough passengers off they go). I now understood why our guide was keen for us to get to the airport in Uyuni early. Planes are old, seating very tight, but...

I take this flight whenever I have to travel to Miami either for work or vacation. The flight is convenient for me because I can check-in from Cochabamba straight to Miami (instead of having to go to Santa Cruz first to take other airlines) and it always has the cheapest rate. It has 2 bags of 23Kg included. in the...
