About 30 people had problems, and some say the company did not provide food or accommodation for the disadvantaged.

In a judicial recovery since December, the company was forced to return aircraft to owners (called "renters") due to lack of payment, following subsequent justice decisions. The return was mediated by Anak.
The cancellation of flights began on April 13th and has appeared daily since then. Update of canceled flights is on Avianca Brasil.
Avianca's clients were damaged by psychologist Priscilla Climaco, who was to board another eight people from the Recife family to Salvador (BA) at 3.30. The trip was a birthday gift from her daughter, Nicole, who turned 11 years old.
Priscilla complained to one of the company's employees and said she had planned a trip since December. According to her, when the family arrived to apply, the system stopped.
"The company warned us and said they would not put us on another flight. They do not want to pay for accommodation or for food and pay to get compensation later," he said.
Priscilla's sister, Janaina Klimako, said she had gone to Anak's desk and was poorly visited. "A companion told us to go to the press," he said.
Civilian officer Flavius Miranda returned to Goiania (GO) and knew at the airport to cancel the flight. She arrived at 1:30 pm and did not receive information about a possible transfer to another company by 6:00 am.
"They said they were waiting for another flight, an hour and a half later, to try it out." The agency confirmed the trip and we know it only at the company's desk, which is a big uncertainty, "he said.
