Rather old plane, no on board entertainment or charger options. Nevertheless friendly staff, OK food, on time and agile boarding process in Quito + it was one of the cheapest options. Had to wait 20 minutes for bags in Lima.

A short one-hour "hop" made enjoyable by friendly staff, enjoyable beverage service, and comfortable seating. This is how U. S. airlines used to treat people.

The flight to Bogota was nice no harassment. The fare is usually higher than most airlines. The seats seem comfortable enough you get 2 check in luggage and food was decent. Traveling from Florida best Airline is Avianca then Jet Blue American Airlines Spirit I would fly if it was under $200 round trip. Other airlines I have not flown....
