Communication could have been better during the delay. Formatting the plane was poor.
Purchasing tickets through BudgetAir was underwhelming...
Delayed take off. Missed my flight to SFO
ATAM Airlines by far the worst experience I ever had flying. Total disaster from beginning to end. Employees were beyond rude. When you call customer service with simple baggage questions they tell you to ask at the airport or check with your agency. Checking the same documents for every connecting flight, instead of doing it at the beginning of your flight and stamp all your boarding passes. Avoid lines and unnecessary contact with others by making long lines to check the same documents they already checked. If I can avoid this airline, I will sure do so and tell others to do the same.
I would recommend Lan Chile to all people flying to South America. Definitely a great experience.
No option to reserve a better seat. I was allocated the last seat in the middle in the last row at the back of the airplane. Completely full airplane, which again made me nervous due to COVID-19 risks of getting infected. Crew was very efficient, though.
Cons: "The flight was full and all seats were taken. It means it was impossible to maintain the required and necessary social distancing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed at the last minute"
Pros: "the crew was good!"
Cons: "It was freezing inside, and I could not regulate the cold, I became sick on the way to my vacation"
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Pros: "The crew at Juliaca was pretty rude, inefficient and dishonest. Charge me an extra $30 for a carry on, which i couldn't even take on board, according to the woman at desk who was not accommodating at all. Seats are most uncomfortable we've sat in decades. Slowww check in staff."
Cons: "Everything, starting with efficient and friendly enployees. To better quality planes and better amenities on board."
Pros: "it was ok flight, but on time, very important to me"
Cons: "the food... cream cracker and very sweet cake..."
Cons: "They tried to charge more Money all the time. During the web check in, they give you the row where the sits are not able to decline. When you try to chance it, they pretend to charge extra fee"
Pros: "Forced me to check my carry on even though it was perfectly legal"
Pros: "We like the plane,seats and crew was excellent."
Cons: "Not a Latam problem but Congonhas airport is terrible if you have to use the bus to get to your plane. Airport Of Uberlandia is just terrible, small and crowded!!!!!"
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks)."
Cons: "Flying on schedule"
Pros: "It got us there safely."
Cons: "Communication was lacking. there was also no one at the check-in counter."
Pros: "SEATs and crew"
Cons: "Food was almost nothing, for a 3hr flight plus delay ... not good!"
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"
Cons: "My wife’s hand luggage was taken off her and put into the hold, against her wishes. When we arrived in São Paulo, the bag handle had been totally destroyed and the bag dented. During the flight we were only given water, the toilet had no paper or soap. Very poor"
Pros: "Food great"
Cons: "Everything exelente"
Cons: "Old aircraft Business seat narrow"
Pros: "Organized well"
Cons: "Seat crowded too much"
Cons: "Yes the boarding it was terrible"
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Travel agency accessed through kayak (kiwi travel) didn’t allow for online check in ahead of time. It also didn’t allow for seat selection ahead of time, so I was stuck with middle seats both ways."
Pros: "I liked the presentation, the effort that LATAM puts forward in general. They have great uniforms that reminds me of old airlines, in a good way."
Cons: "The services is good, but they do not do it with a smile on their face. I asked for a cup of water and both times it took them about 10 minutes to get me that cup. The crew always seems to be bothered to serve the customer. There is also a big difference between services going straight to Santiago on the 787 and to Peru on the 767. I understand the plan (767) is older and that does not bother me. What bothers me is the disparity in service between the two. I received great service the first time I traveled on LATAM, ever since then they have disappointed. I do not understand what is going on with them."
Pros: "Boeing 787 Dreamliner, plane looked brand new. Attendants are friendly. Food is excellent. Best flight experience in many years."
Pros: "it was a very nice and pleasant trip!"
Pros: "Menu for dinner and breakfast Nice designed heavy-duty plastic fork and knife Extremely comfortable blanket Meals were tasty"
Cons: "As always in last class, no leg room."
Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."
Pros: "Great short flight and they got us to Santiago early since everyone was at the gate"
Cons: "They changed my seat without notice nor great explanation."
Cons: "Llegue a tiempo, justo 1hora y media antes de la salida, y aun ya hecho el checking online, no me dejaron subir al avion. Cuando fui al counter de latam, esos rateros, me cobraron 30us para ponerme en el siguiente vuelo, el cual muy bonito, se retraso 3 HORAS sin dar una razon! Y adivinen que? Pues no me devolveran nada, ni mucho menos mi tiempo. Latam es una porqueria...."
Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
Pros: "The flight itself was great because there were personal TVs for everyone that had a wide selection of movies and games. It had more categories on it but little time to explore in the short plane ride after the movie from BWI to MIA. Great pilot, little motion sickness and great staff."
Cons: "I did not like how I came with my family and the clerks did not even try to seat us together, just gave us our tickets and sent us on our way, even after mentioning we had under age kids with us and a 2 year old who WILL CRY if not seated next to my other 2 family members."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable. This was an overnight flight and the noise was very low."
Cons: "When I got to Miami they had changed my next flight until the next morning. They did not offer me a hotel or anything. I had to wait in line to try to get on a flight to RDU. Then I had to wait in the airport for 12 hours to get a seat."
Pros: "Smooth flight, on time"
Cons: "No complimentary beverage service I.e. Water or food. On a three hour flight, that is totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Service is exceptional. Most polite staff ever in my flying experience and I'm 28 and have take over 50 flights in my life."
Cons: "-That we needed an app to watch the media. -Seats are smaller than some longer flights, but honestly they were fine. -Boarding takes a while, but I'm not sure there is a good solution. I did like how we loaded the front and back of the plane simultaneously. Good move!"
Pros: "Crew really stood out as exceptional. Friendly responsive and kind."
Pros: "The Dreamliner 787-900 is a great plane, even in economy, and LATAM treated me better than an ordinary carrier, despite the budget fare."
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Late boarding, no television or personal entertainment options, food was not so good."
Cons: "After pass security, before we were about to boarding, everyone was all waiting for their turn there were many security stuffs showed up and let entire people open their bags before get on the plane. It end up delayed flight too."
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
