The plane was great. Even though, it didn't have any entertainment system in front, I understand that completely and the crew were very friendly and the food was exceptional, as I expected.

Flight attendant went out of her way to get my wife a glass of water. We had a late flight so it was nice to arrive early to wind down before bed.

My organisation arranged my flights and the most economical route was to fly from Toronto to Miami, Miami to Santa Cruz, and Santa Cruz to La Paz. This review is about my third and final flight, from Santa Cruz to La Paz with Boliviana de Aviacion. This was...

Airplane's were well maintained, but...

Continous postponements of flight, and no real information. Re-booking to a next day flight with no options. Explanations was "heavy rain" - but i doubt their explanation. On the queue for re-booking overheard a BoA-representative say that "non-spanish-speaking" was not to bother about" (he did not know i understood some spanish). EcoJet had available seats on the same day, but...

Flew from Tarija to Viru Viru Airport in Santa Cruz. Okay flight, nothing stood out one way or the other on this 45 minute flight. Seating is on the tight side.

The agent who checked us in said she would call the manager in La Paz and try to accommodate...

We had to change the date for our flight reservation, and via messenger in Facebook, we were able to change it, very quicky, very hassle free. They would answer within the hour, and very efficiently. Better than any mayor worldwide airline that we know of. The plane from Uyuni to La Paz left on time. It was a big airplane....

This was painless. Security was quick and efficient. Flight left the gate 10 ahead of schedule and we arrived on time. Inflight service was good but sparse. Crew were efficient but seemed to be unenthusiastic about their jobs. Plane was a late model 737, clean.

I was worried when I booked the short flight from uyuni to la Paz expecting an old aircraft and uneasy about the altitude. Instead I found a recent plane, clean with polite and attentive service.
