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...

Nice experience, traveling in economy. Snack and drink served on short flights. Clean aircraft, courteous crew and on-time flight. Will fly again and recommend. Waiting for luggage in Uyuni was interesting. Not that it took a long time, but we had to wait until everyone's bags were hand delivered to the baggage claim area. They refused to let us claim...

This was a short but smooth flight, cramped seats and completely full. But, it had two soccer teams on board going to Sucre to play some matches so it ended up being a lot of fun with the excited team members. The flight attendants were busy serving drinks and snacks right up till landing time. The flight left on time...

This airlines interest in their clients seems to decline very substantially as soon as you buy the ticket. My latest problem with BoA has put me off them for good. I bought a ticket in cash (I was in a hurry) and got the itinerary which also acts as the only receipt. I flew to Santa Cruz and on the...

The plane from Uyuni to La Paz was very old. There was a very intense metal burn smell in the entire plane. We were at the back were the smell was even worse. It felt like something might be burning and we were on guard the entire time (in hindsight, we should not have remained in the plane). The smell...

Flew on 21st. May 2018 from Santa Cruz to Madrid on OB776. 1. There was no sign at the gate, which group should board first, they just announced it in Spanish only. 2. It was a Boing 767-300. There was not much entertainment, as there were no monitors at the seats. No power outlets for your mobile devices. They showed...

My adult son and I flew on Boliviana de Aviacion from LPB to EZE with a connection in VVI. The flight went well. The connection went well and our luggage made it as well. Upon check in, they wouldn't allow my son's carry-on bag to go with us as it was over 10kg's We were concerned as all the other...

Efficient check in, planes left and arrived on time. Friendly air hostesses BUT - I realise we are in the Americas but the food was bad - Lunch was something like a cross between a wrap and a cold vietnamese roll and tasted like a one year old sushi! Plus 5 sweet biscuits and a small piece of chocolate cake...

BOA will change flight details without notice and leave you behind without bothering! We (my friend and I) had a horrible experience flying with BOA as they decided to change the gate without notice 20 minutes before takeoff. The terminal in Sucre is super tiny, but still we were seated at the wrong gate and had no clue of it...

First time I’ve reviewed an airline. I’ve flown for the last half dozen years or so ago on BoA and each time found THIS airline to leave and arrive on scheduled times. Maybe because of the fact that the flight Sucre/La Paz is only roughly fifty minutes. Flight crew are always polite and accomodating. Baggage is delivered very quickly after...
