Pros: "Service is terrible on my way to Peru the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I am formed SteFf but all they could say was they would help me but we never return very disappointed returning from Peru our plane got stuck in Bogotá Columbia we’re trapped inside the plane For three hours with no air-conditioning when we finally disembarked they offered us to stay in a hotel but the voucher process also took a very long time we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning in order to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flight very disappointed with that flight of Avianca again or would I would not recommend Avianca to anyone"
Cons: "Hire competent employees"
Cons: "For that size of airplane basing on the fact that it was an international flight not having a USB port or any power source by the seats it’s ridiculous. The boarding process was a nightmare, very disorganized the crew members starting boarding group by group just using ONE of the two entrances available because of it the line to board the plan occupied almost 2 boarding gates. I couldn’t reclaim my seat because it was broke, the quality of the food was very mediocre, crew members attitude were upsetting... uncaring and ignoring passengers call. Another filthy plain ... I had 4 flights with avianca between 2 International fights and 2 national connections, all flights were terrible! The worse part is I probably could’ve flight more comfortable for less money or at least get what I paid for."
Cons: "En un vuelo de seis horas, dan un desayuno perfectamente diminuto y no hay nada más de comer el resto del vuelo. Entendemos que estén buscando cortar costos pero ser una low cost a precio full es inconsistente. Por lo menos vendan snacks en el avión!!!"
Pros: "Overall flight was fine. No entertainment nor wifi."
Cons: "At check in in Bogota we asked which line to turn in luggage; as we had previously done online checkin. We were placed in a long line and waited about 45 min.s. Several people were allowed to bypass the line, as they were 'late' for their flight. When we were close to being served the attendant 'placing customers in lines' directed four or five groups from the special needs line ahead of our line in a row. We were told we had missed the baggage check in by 2 minutes and had to pay $60 usd to take an flight 2 hours later. We were then yelled at that we had been in the wrong line. There was another line, very fast one, one the opposite side of the gate area for those with 'bag drop' only needs. I had showed the airline personnel our check in info on my cell and was placed in the wrong line by them. So many problems at airport check in with this airline."
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Fue un avión no adaptado a nuestros tiempos, sin entretenimiento a bordo, ni siquiera tenía para conectar el celular. Un servicio low cost."
Pros: "The kids movie selection was still good."
Cons: "There were no barf bags on hand, the food was an option between some disgusting eggs floating in water or a yogurt with some not great granola. Customer service was kind of non existent."
Pros: "Seats comfort"
Cons: "Food. Crew attention. Airport assistance. Boarding times. Take off on time."
Cons: "Avianca customer service and reliability is terrible. I fly a lot and the lack of care for customers is incredible. Lot of dressing up employees but clearly the company is not doing well. Everyone at the airport with complaints for complex rebooking."
Pros: "They were very helpful."
Cons: "More leg room."
Pros: "The crew members where extremely nice. I had traveling on business class, with a seat that gets flat, so I was able to sleep most of the flight"
Cons: "The plane had something and was delayed for 3 hours"
Cons: "When arriving at the airport in Bogota not only the flight was delayed but the gate was changed and the person at the counter in the gate wrote the wrong gate on the ticket and flight to Lima was missed. They booked the passenger in the next flight 9 hours after. They did not provide any food nor hotel so passenger to stay at the airport. My guess, they overbooked the flight as they always do, this trip was for my son (20) traveling by himself for the first time, they took advantage of his inexperience; this is is my 3rd bad experience with Avianca and definitely the last one!"
Cons: "Hicieron perder mi equipaje."
Cons: "it was 14 horas late"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "The wait for boarding"
Pros: "THAT i ACTUALLY MADE IT HOME"
Cons: "AVIANCA DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SEATS TO ACCOMODATE ALL THE TICKETS THEY SOLD. MY ENTERTAINMENT SCREEN WAS BROKEN, MY RECLINING SEAT WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY & MY TRAY TABLE WAS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE AFTER BEING OPENED, SEATS WERE EXTREMELY CRAMPED AND TIGHT. THE MEAT IN MY MEAL WAS HARD"
Pros: "Flight crew EXCEPCIONAL The lunch was delicious Service perfect"
Cons: "With over an hour in line to enter the International portion of the airport everyone was extremely stressed. Immigration personal were very snappy and rude (Not Avianca, Colombia). We had over an hour wait to get inside then it was a long run to get the the gate on time. The problems that Avianca is having with its flights, on time percentage and upset passengers is very Sad. Normally Avianca is the best airline in the American Zone! They need to fix their internal problems quickly or their bottom line will get punished."
Pros: "Puntuales Cordiales Avión confortable Todo el personal en Colombia se mostró amable y simpático, de verdad los felicito por mantener ese espíritu entre sus colaboradores"
Pros: "Food ok."
Cons: "Plane left almost two hours late! Missed connection in Bogata! Despite Avianc providing a Hotel in Bogata I had to pay for Hotel in Cocuta!"
Cons: "On Feb 26th we had a flight leaving Bogota back to NYC, and at the gate, we found out our flight would not be operated by Avianca, but by a Spanish carrier called WAMOS. Wamos airlines does not offer in-flight entertainment. It offers an app that you can download on your mobile device prior the flight, even though there are no plugs inside the plane and no fully reclining seats. This change is being caused by an ongoing strike action by some of their own pilots and this has been regarded with absolute no consideration from Avianca to its costumers. At the airport we talked to 3 different customer services employees, all giving us different versions of the story and no clear answers. One employee told us that we MAY have a possibility of reimbursement and another one that we could stay in a hotel and catch another flight the next day (which was not an option for us) There was no advance warning about this change to me (not even during check-in) Found out later some passengers gotten an email informing about this change, but not all of them. Staff didn't know anything about this flight. The gate staff only informed passengers of the change, after I complained, and kept insisting that the airplanes were the same, when clearly it was not the same quality, in amenities and service on board. There were big delays and a mess with seat assignments. Many customers traveling together with separated seats and of course, delays in departure caused by the mess that Avianca caused. Just to be clear. what Avianca is doing is stealing the money that we paid for a specific flight, to voluntary change us to a much less inferior flight, with absolutely no consideration and no compensations."
Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Cons: "It was late and then I missed my connection, and an Avianca employee told me there was a later flight from LAX to PDX (at 11:45 on AlaskaAir) which I would be put on. However, once I arrived I was told I was on a 6 AM on Delta with no arrangement to get me a hotel or anything. I bought a separate ticket on that 11:45 flight on Alaska Air to PDX instead. Extremely unhappy with this service and will never again use it. I will also tell everyone in my social circles, in person and online, to stop using it."
Pros: "While on board everything is good. Nice food, great entertaining, really comfortable. Problem is what happens in between if you have connecting flights."
Cons: "I bought my flight and it had 2 connections. The time frame between flights was HORRIBLE! On the first flight change I was in a horrible rush to get there on time an I barely made it. On the second flight change, I was one of the firsts in coming out on the plane, I didn't stop even for a second and was fast paced and even with that I had to run from half of the airport to the gate because boarding was complete and the flight was waiting for just a few persons (which I met later because it happened the same to all of us) . My flights were on time so all that stress was NOT SUPPOSED to happen. It took forever to being able to get out of the plane and it was more than clear that Avianca didn't took any of that or the airport procedures in mind before selling the flights with connections. And because their lack of organization and being so careless about this matter, my checked bag got stucked. I was lucky enough to get home but my bag did not. And it happened the same to the other people who had problems with their connections too (that's where I met them, when we were the only persons who didn't got the bags and happened to have similar experiences with our connecting flights). I'm really disappointed, I really liked Avianca flights in general but now I know I can't trust in their judgement when it comes to connecting flights, they just sell you the flight and don't care if you're going to be able to make it or not."
Cons: "See above + air hostesses speak poor English. When asked to persuade certain travellers to put their seats in the upright position during mealtimes they refused and claimed that it is bussines of mine to arrange for that. In the course of previous flight they have hower required that. Very confusing. The behaviour and performance of the crew was hardly proffesional. They paid little attention e.g. To people who did respect instructions concerning fastening the seat belts orcto remain seated during landing, etc."
Pros: "Nothing. I wish I could give negative stars."
Cons: "Everything was bad. Super delayed, terrible explanation. Had to stay overnight in the airport in the worst lounge I’ve ever seen in my life. Got a hotel voucher but by the time I would have gotten through immigration and got to a hotel I would have had 1 hour to “sleep” before having to get back to the airport for the 4 am flight which was then delayed again to 5am. After all this, we only got a $250 voucher on a $1500 flight. When I asked about business class upgrades they said they had seats open but it would cost $400! For a seat that stayed empty Instead of giving it to a customer who had been through the worst travel experience of their life. The flight attendants seemed like they really couldn’t give a damn about helping out customers and it’s the only airline I’ve ever interacted with where no one speaks English. One guy actually rolled his eyes when I asked him for the meal I missed when I was sleeping."
Cons: "The crew wasn’t welcoming, didn’t solve difficulties and had bad communication with passengers"
Cons: "- Rescheduled flights due to Avianca commercial decisions just 1 week before flight - Boarding was very messy due to their inhability to explain the "group system", they have pax that doesn't speak spanish or english, they should do it in a more easy way - Food portions wasn't enough, a lot of people had to bring their own snacks and the plane had a terrible smell due to that. People will bring bags with full roasted chickens - Entretainment was ok, but their system is just so slow - A lot of loss time because they lost my bags in one of the connections. Hopefully they brough it back 12 hours later"
Cons: "Late for no reason. Boarded late, arrived late"
Pros: "Everything perfect. The attention was puntual y nice"
Cons: "After avianca overbooked their flight, lied to me and said it was because of a strike i was stuck alone in bogota for 11 hours instead of 3.5. I received no compensation and am very angry with the way things were handled. Definitely wont be bothing with this airline again"
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "LA PELICULA QUE ME VI ESTABA BUENA."
Cons: "NO PUDE USAR LA COBIJA DE AVIANCA PORQUE TENIA UN OLOR ESPANTOSO ASI COMO LA DE MI ACOMPANANTE, EL AVION ESTABA HELADO Y NO PUDE USARLA POR CULPA DE AVIANCA. LA COMIDA ES POCA Y DESAGRADABLE. HABIA UNA AZAFATA CON UN CARACTER TERRIBLE,MALGENIADA Y PARA NADA AMABLE A LA HORA DE AYUDAR O ATENDER A LOS PASAJEROS,DABA MIEDO HABLARLE. A MI ME ACOMODARON DONDE SE LES DIO LA GANA, NO DONDE ESTABA SUPUESTA A SENTARME PORQUE SUBIERON DE ULTIMAS A UNA PERSONA EN SILLA DE RUEDAS Y ME TUVIERON QUE INCOMODAR PARA DARLE LA SILLA A EL. ME PARECE QUE TIENEN QUE DARLES OTRAS SILLAS A ELLOS. ES MUY INCOMODO EL ASIENTO. MUY CARO PARA TAN POCA COSA DE AVION. ES MEJOR American Airlines."
Pros: "I loved it was a super experience!!"
Cons: "Once In Bogota my 1h flight to pereira was cancelled and I was told I wouldn't be able to get on another flight for another 1 or 2 days which was a huge inconvenience, later after speaking with someone I was given the option to board another plane to a nearby city 10 hours later. I agreed and had to make arrangements to make transportation from manisales to pereira,for my surprise on the way to manisales the flight got redirected to Pereira my original destination, that was great but created another inconvenience for my transportation arrangements."
Pros: "No response given."
Cons: "After all these connecting flights especially after being delayed in Cali, the flight in Bogota was delayed and the Avianca crew did not announce it. After realizing it was time for boarding according to the time that I needed to be at the gate from my ticket, that's when people were realizing there was an issue. Once I got to the podium and handed my tickets the staff handed a voucher. There wasn't a hello, we're sorry for the inconvenience or the reason why the flight was delayed 2 hours. I had to ask them why what happened, what is the voucher for, how does it work, what time we were expected to be at the gate. The staff made everyone aware that we needed to be at the gate at 4pm so we can depart at 445pm. The food was okay and the staff looked a little annoyed when serving drinks. I shouldn't say all of the crew but from the back half of the plane the staff looked annoyed if not bothered. Didn't get to NYC until 12am, but had to wait on the runway for an additional 20 minutes. Again no communication on what was going on."
Pros: "Good breakfast. Sodas, juices ,wine and spirits later. I would always travel in airlines that can offer at least wine."
Cons: "Flight map screen was not working. Few music options on the screen."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Seats were clunky, I couldn't recline my seat during a 10 hours night flight."
Pros: "I had a rough time due to stomach problems."
Cons: "When I asked the attendants for some medicine to help my stomach, they replied they were prohibited from giving medicines to passengers. Since they are not doctors, I understood their point of view."
Pros: "the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "boarding was a complete disaster. the lady at the counter gave me all wrong information. the random screening was done very rudely. not a single staff spoke a word of English which is unacceptable for an international flight. the food albeit not significant after the horrendous boarding experience was terrible, and I had to ask several times for water. Further, for the flight to bogotá, we had called and spent a lot of time on the phone to reserve seats, which were then all wrong once we checked in at the airport. what was the point."
Cons: "This was the first segment of an itinerary ending in Miami. There was no personnel available for check in 3 hours prior to departure. They claimed it wasn't an international flight. They told me at 330am, that they would be open to check in at 4am.... it was 420am before anyone showed up at the check in desk. I had requested a wheelchair...I was told I had to walk about 60 yards to the other side of the concourse for the wheelchair, that they could not call for the wheelchair to meet me at the check in position"
Pros: "Everything was great.!"
Cons: "Didnt have any problems."
Cons: "Nothing! On the flight back I was sick and couldn't walk to take the connection and they left me.. Made come back on a flight next they and made me pay an additional cost! What a unhuman Arline!"
Pros: "good crew. great seats."
Cons: "I would like to have tv screens in flights from Bogota to Panama. No entertainment at all. But from Panama to Miami it was perfect."
Pros: "Excelente service both of my flights departed on time and arrived early to the destination!! For basic economy there was great seat space, entertainment and multiple meals for 6+ hr flight with alcohol included!! Will be flying with Copa again!"
Pros: "They closed the flight 30 minutes before the departure hour."
Pros: "The quick boarding"
Cons: "The food still not good, even that is a short flight Copa should choose another kind of plane because the Embraiber is a very small plane for comfort"
Pros: "Very poor service. The crew is not capable of attending the needs of passengers, specially those traveling with children. Comfort on board is terrible. An airplane of two seats on each side for over 7 hours and to many stops. The stop in CR was unnecessary. We had a very difficult flight with no entertainment and poor service."
Cons: "They need to take more serious their services for toddlers and children. Seats are not apt for children from 2 up to 8. Seatbelts do not fit a child. They don't have an emergency kit for children. No entertainment, no pillows, no blankets. We had to beg for water. It was simply unacceptable."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Arrived at gate and bridge was not installed at new gate in new part of airport. It took 45 min to find a portable gate so we could leave the plane."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed about 40 minutes."
Cons: "update planes"
Cons: "Non entertainment system"

Pros: "Very Punctual"
Cons: "No entertainment on board. The food was TERRIBLE!!! Beverages were OK"
Pros: "Victor was wonderful and took care of everyone’s requests with a smile. He worked very hard the whole trip even when not in our view. I also can’t remember a time that I’ve seen a steward deliver the Safety demonstration with such care."
Pros: "courtesy, punctuality and comfort."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, no apology, service on board was terrible and unfriendly. Had to run to get to connecting flight. No help from airline staff. Avoid Copa at all costs. Don't fly Copa!"
Pros: "nice crew tribulation."
Cons: "there were no food options, only chicken. even though it was a shot fly, we didn't have a screen for music or other entertainment."
Pros: "This was a good flight. There are more business-like type travelers in the morning and traffic to the airport runs smoothly so early in the morning."
Cons: "My flight was fine and the time seemed to go by quickly."
Pros: "Good service. Has entertaining and food was not bad. Service is friendly. We had a small delay and the captain was communicative and tried to bring us faster to our destination."
Cons: "Bathrooms are super small"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "It's probably not the airline's fault, but I don't think anyone enjoyed just "sitting" and not moving, prior to takeoff, for what seemed like 20-30 minutes, after 30+ minutes spent boarding, though that was largely the fault of the clueless passengers."
Pros: "Flight was good...ease of making reservations...choices and time available"
Cons: "not much to say here"
Cons: "Rude crew, old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Our flight wasn’t delayed twice then cancelled and rescheduled until 9:pm the next day. From Bogota Colombia to San Francisco with a connecting flight to Panama. Copa Airmines flight CM 658."
Cons: "The fact that they made me travel 18+ hours to get home!!! WTF!!"
Cons: "Then they took my husbands passport and went through all of his belongings which took another 15 minutes. We had just been screened in Bogota."
Pros: "Kidness of flight attendants Both flights on time"
Cons: "They should improve the entertainment on board. Most of the airlines have installed screen on the back of every seat and have internet access."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Timely, organized and food was served in this very short flight"
Pros: "The worst airline I've flown in the last few years. Made a string of mistakes and errors and showed a lack of customer service typical of anything central american. 1 Canceled a wrong flight of mine 2 Gave me wrong tickets 3 Wanted to charge me to wait stand by after admitting to their own error 4 Were continually rude and or unhelpful with a repeated lack of useful or relevant information to help me make informed decisions. There are many quality airlines out there and this is not one of them. Having flown a bit to central and south america over the past few seasons, there are no shortage of airlines worth the money that provide a positive flying experience."
Pros: "Everything perfect. On time, good service"
Pros: "The flight was on time and enjoyable."
Cons: "Flight rerouted without plan. Crew totally unprepared, hostile to customers, horrendous customers service, on tarmac nearly three hours without water, etc., stranded all day at LAX unnecessarily, CREW NEVER DID SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for additional flight, which is totally illegal!!"
Cons: "Although the airline knew about the delays it decided to make people wait inside the airplane for almost 4 hours. That was insane! I refer to this specific situation with such dislike because I had friends traveling at the exact same time as us through a different airline whom didnt let the people aboard the plane until climate warnings were cleared. It was the proper thing to do! I been in others flights in which weather conditions dont allowed to depart on time and people is not allowed to go on board until the conditions are better. No even a cup of water was offered during this stressful time, and the seatbelt sign was on the whole time. It was horribly handled!!!"
Pros: "Everything was on time and have no complaints on this particular flight."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board my next flight out of Panama City because of overweight. I suspect they knew that was going to happen as they gave me a boarding pass without a confirmed seat."
Pros: "The crew were very good and friendly."
Cons: "The extreme and continous turbulence during all the flight time. I know it´s about the atmospheric conditions but it was so long..."
Pros: "The personnel from check-in to the plane are friendly and professional."
Cons: "At check-in the line is longer and slower moving than necessary because there are not enough agents attending."
Pros: "Was good, comgrats to copa Airlanes for the good service"
Cons: "Drink service only came twice in 6 hours! Entertainment was broken. Food was overcooked and bland. Attendants were unhelpful. Terrible airline."
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."
Pros: "New plane, nice crew, good entertainment, good food."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours and it was handled horribly. First, I had to wait at check-in for 1 hour despite having checked in online. Next, we were told hourly-wise to check-in at the gate to find out when our flight would leave. This was a hassle and caused me a lot of stress since I had to make new plans with a new itinerary for my arrival in Chile where I was supposed to meet my elderly parents. The staff kept telling me they didn't know when we'd leave asking me to check back four times before they were able to give me a definite time. Aweful experience that caused me a lot of stress and inconvenience."
Cons: "Crazy early. Boarding pass says gate closes by 1205 (for scheduled 1220 departure). We TOOK OFF (in air) before 1200. We got yelled at because we arrived only 1 hour early — should be 3 hours early for an “international flight”. Luggage very difficult, Must rush, etc. But everything turned out great. Scl is crazy airport — 20 minute wait for gate ramp when we got there (still 20 minutes early, instead of 40! On a 60-minute scheduled flight!). Huge long walk to immigration. Pretty long wait for bags. But it all worked out fine."
Cons: "Get a plane that actually works."
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina."
Pros: "Crew and flight was fine and short"
Cons: "While I received an email to checkin on the way there, I did not receive anything for the return flight. Had to wait in line to check in. Also KIWI was the booker and did not share the regular flight code of Latam, only KiWis number which wasn't helpful. Finally, both flights were delayed."
Pros: "Good movie selections, nice crew"
Cons: "They need to be able to let customers know meal ingredients during pre-orders to assist with food allergy. I have a tomato allergy, so giving me an option of "Vegan" or "veggie" with no other detail is unhelpful."
Cons: "Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade."
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Pros: "The Crew tried to work with what they have."
Cons: "1. Plane to small. there was no room. 2. Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"
Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
Pros: "Good crew, excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable seats and on-time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking, so there was only an in-flight magazine to read with limited English language material"
Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."
Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"
Cons: "Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big."
Pros: "LA844 was cancelled the day before but luckily our day went off without a hitch. LA842 was delayed several hours to create LA1144, which was effectively the cancelled flight from the day before. Airport wasn't as chaotic as I might have expected. No issues at all with this flight."
Cons: "I'm still weary of LATAM after they left us in Lima for 15 hours after 2 cancelled flights. No issues this flight though (at least for us... poor sobs on the cancelled flight the day before were delayed about 15 hours themselves)."
Cons: "Child behind my seat was loud kicked my seat and parents did nothing."
Pros: "nice peole, crew, great aiplane comfort and food"
Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."
Pros: "Gate crew was very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hours inside the plane in JFK with no electricity (no AC or lights) before taking off. The crew said it was the airport employees that had caused the problem."
Cons: "Plane shakes moves and jumps to much. Seems like LATAM is always late. They did not honor the seats which we pre purchased. Seems like the captains fly to fast and don’t know how to land"
Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"
Pros: "Lancing was excellent. Good leg room, good leather sits"
Cons: "I thought service was good."
Pros: "Staff and service was great"
Pros: "Normally, getting on a plane in Colombia is an absolute nightmare. People pushing, standing right next to you, when you get on the plane all the old women who do not know how to read always walk to the back of the plane when they're supposed to be sitting in seat 7? Been there? Seen that? Yes ! Seen it a million times. What makes this particular flight so unbelievable, and maybe it was just a training day because there was a lot of airline personnel at the check in kiosk, but I have never processed on to a flight in Columbia, given up my baggage, and be walking to the gate so fast in my life! I truly hope this is something that will become standard, and I pray to God that the other airlines especially Viva will learn how to do!"
Cons: "Overall very good, good crew... minus point.. seats SO tiny, it makes Asian airline economy seats feel like 1st class!"
Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."
Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! Competent and very helpful, even funny when serving food and drinks! I fly very frequently but this was one of the nicest crews I had in years!"
Cons: "Segunda vez en una semana que me mojan , me derramaron cafe el vuelo anterior y hoy jugo de naranja. El espacio es muy pequeño y chocan los brazos cuando ofrecen bebida ; o el de adelante se mueve y bota todo encima ... un desastre, cero comodidad , la silla más dura que nunca y el espacio para las piernas, o sea, yo mido 1.74 y voy justa, que será para el resto de la población.. no por incluir una fila más hagan que todos vayamos incómodos ; y de la tripulación, nada que decir, solo me pasaron servilletas y me desearon suerte .. me gustaría algún tipo de compensación, porque , para más remate, llegamos más tarde de lo estimado."
Pros: "On time, professional crew"
Cons: "Seats are squeezed together so tight that you essentially have to climb over the arm rests to get into the window seat"
Pros: "Lack of maintanance the pilot had to turn around in the runway because the plain had no sufficent gas. Maintanance should be constant not reqctive of the situation"
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"
Pros: "Service was very good and professional"
Cons: "Flight was packed but thats expected"
Pros: "Easy boarding and organized staff. Friendly staff overall."
Cons: "Terrible terrible food- no TV (really? in 10 years flying to Colombia this was a first) seats were very uncomfortable, no room to move the legs, the seats were super old no room at all. I have traveled with LATAM before and I had good experiences, with no complains. But the flight from Bogota to Miami on may 29th was mediocre and it seems longer than it was. That plane should be used for shorter flights and not a 4 hour international flight. I am not expecting first class seats and 5 course meals. But for the same price I could have used other airlines."
Cons: "No Movie Screen"
Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn't even offer water, this on a 3 1/2 hour flight, took too long to board, too long to get off...they sold food on the flight, they seemed to cater to whomever wanted to buy food, & like I said offer water to the rest of us. Just an overall horrible flight."
Pros: "I have bought a ticket from To Aeroparque Jorge Newvery; and they cancelled the flight and sent me to Ezeiza without prior inform, concent and without any compensation."
Cons: "My original flight was supposed to land at 8:55pm but I was notified that it had been changed to land closer to midnight which was a problem because my hotel closed at midnight. After talking to the customer service agent at the airport he told me the reason my flight had changed was because my original airplane was flying out of another airport and the only way to make the flight that I had booked was to take a cab ride to the other airport. What he didn't explain was that its a 45+ minute drive between the two airports and I only had about 1.5 hours to get my bag, get on the taxi, check in at the other airport, clear security AND customs. Somehow by the grace of god it all came together but it was certainly a harrowing experience, not to mention the $45 I lost in cab fares. I cannot recommend LAN/LATAM."
Pros: "I flew from Baltimore to Miami to Bogotá with zero issues. I am a musician and was traveling with my guitar, nobody hassled me and there was adequate space. The only issue was in Bogotá for my return flight. After struggling with the LATAM kiosk machine I was told by a LATAM ticket agent that flights from Bogotá to Miami are through American Airlines. Luckily a very nice American Airline agent accompanied me back to LATAM and convinced them my flight was with LATAM. Everything else was simple and easy!"
Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."
Cons: "Old airplane"
Pros: "Space between seats"
Pros: "Good section of movies! Tasty food!"
Cons: "My usb charger was not working, so I couldn't use my smartphone to play or listen to my songs, and it is quite small space for legs, disconfortable to a long flight!"
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "We never got boarded!! They oversold the flight and al the passengers without seats are left in line with no explanation! And extremely rude people at the counters. I understand the issues going on these days but to not even acknowledge hen people are asking them when is the next flight, is unacceptable! I will never book this airline again and expect my money back for today's no go :("
Cons: "Don't work with this company! Sky Airlie is horrible customer service at the counters in Punta Arenas"
Pros: "Plane was boarded rear to front."
Cons: "Communication about which bag fees were required. Waaaay overpaid for bag fees."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Carry on forced check at door - same size I have used to fly on American and LATAM. Said nothing downstairs at baggage check, but then forced me to pay $30 at bording because they said it was too big. Pretty lousy. Also brief turbulence at the beginning and they closed the bathrooms for the rest of the smooth three hour flight."
Cons: "Complementary coffee, tea"
Cons: "The cost of this flight was too high for such a mediocre experience. Additionally after paying to bring a bag on board, there was difficulty in finding a space for it and the crew was only somewhat helpful."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes; seats were terribly uncomfortable; flight crew was rude; boarding process was confusing, no announcements were made in English."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline at all"
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice plane"
Cons: "Paying for carry on bag was expensive"
Pros: "The crew that we had direct contact with were nice. The baggage screeners are misinformed."
Cons: "We were removed from our flight to bariloche because of an issue with our checked bags. The issue was that we had some AAA alkaline batteries in our bags. We were told this is in violation of international standards. It is not. We missed our flight because of this."
Pros: "Que hicieran claras las reglas de llevar equipaje de mano, pues es un engaño y una estafa. Nuestra maleta de mano ha sido adquirida en Europa para vuelos low cost"
Pros: "Bad service also i find out my pscreption sun glass is missing"
Pros: "Crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "If they didn't charge for carry on luggage, would had been perfect."
Cons: "We were late to board on an already late flight"
Pros: "Comfortable ride, once we got to the plane boarding was very fast as we used two doors to board"
Cons: "The plane arrived late and we had to move gates. We stood around for a very long time with no communication as for the hold on"
Cons: "I would have wanted more legroom and the passenger in front of me kept reclining into my knees."
Pros: "We were on time even early"
Cons: "They don’t even serve water and had menu items missing. also the seating is WAY too tight and uncomfortabke"
Pros: "But the security at Santiago to the States was ridiculous. Tossing out water at the gate, hand checking luggage and a General all around rudeness. Good bye Chile."
Pros: "El precio y la puntulidad"
Cons: "Asientos incomodos"
Pros: "It was a great price. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "The food and beverage service was an extra fee and the seats were super cramped."
Pros: "One hour late"
Pros: "Preço bom"
Cons: "Muito apertado e não limpo antes de entrarmos no aviao"
Pros: "Cheap flight"
Cons: "No water, changed gate last minute, had to run to new gate. Row 9 seats do no recline."
Cons: "At check in they told us that we only had one leg of our trip, from puerto montt to Santiago, instead of all the way through to calama. I had to push to have them check that indeed we were going all the way to calama. They were convinced we weren’t and that we’d have to pay the baggage fee twice."
Pros: "Bad service overall"
Pros: "Crew very professional"
Pros: "Price. Had exit row so very roomy"
Cons: "No service"
Pros: "cheap, efficient, on time."
Cons: "Extremely tight. I'm 5.7 and 130 pds and could barely fit. Will definitely try to purchase an emergency exit for my return. That's the not upgrade possible. No business available. No free refreshment, even the water was for purchase only."
Pros: "La amabilidad"
Cons: "Bebidas.....no hay gratis..."
Pros: "Muy amable..l"
Cons: "Bebidas...no hay gratis."
Pros: "Staff is decently friendly"
Cons: "They should not allow reclining seats with such tiny amount of leg room"
Pros: "nice service"
Cons: "On our way from Santiago to Buenos Aires we had to wait to pick up our suitcases hours due to a strike. On our way back, one of our suitcases got lost. I am still waiting fir Skype to contact us.. ( +2 days )"
Pros: "Good service, no complaints."
Pros: "The staff were friendly and professional. Cokplimentary snack on such a short flight was appreciated"
Cons: "Crew did not tell us local time, or at least not in English, when landing. The time on my watch and phone matched what was on my itinerary for the layover. But we were actually 2 hours late! Missed my connection due to this hiccup. Pretty sure such things are WHY they always announce local time"
Cons: "They changed, until I left, the boarding gate three times. They gave me 27 at the check in counter, after a while monitors sent us to 24, then they directed us to 27 again, then to 26 and finally to gate 29. First the delay was 2 and a half hours, then three, then 4, then 7 hours. I was traveling for one meeting from one day coming back the next afternoon. With the 7 hour delay, I'd have to go directly from the airport, after a horrible night, to my board meeting. It was a no go. I declined to travel and expect a full refund"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation or proper update. Didn’t even give you a glass of water for a flight that was over three hours long (had to pay for everything). Booked it so people were cramped together while others had entire rows to themselves (on other flights I’ve been on flight attendants recognize this and help space out people). Horrible seats in general with no space and I am a very petite female and I felt uncomfortable. Horrible temperate control. Will not fly this airline again."
Cons: "The desk agents are rude and unhelpful. It almost as if they are mad in being there. My ticket showed I was allowed to have a bag up to 23kg however they made me pay overweight fees. The desk agent gave me the wrong gate so I missed the flight. I had to purchase a new ticket and they charged me for bauuage fees again. Worst experience ever"
Cons: "They look for everything in order to charge you the carry in baggage. Bad bad service. Never flighit with this airline again"
Pros: "On time arrival. A low cost flight that does not compromise on the essentials. You still get free check-in luggage. The seats are a bit narrow, but that's ok for a 3h flight."
Cons: "Was not given at least a free soft drink.."
Pros: "Quick boarding, On time, good pricing, safe arrival and return, complimentary 65lb check in bag"
Cons: "Worst legroom I've ever experienced, no beverage service, no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "There is no room for your legs if you are taller than 5'5. It's tighter than Spirit. No announcement for flight delay, and nobody to ask what's going on."
Cons: "Tiny seats. Old planes. Charge for coffee or soda. They pack every row possible. Ridiculous carry on policy. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "They didn't even gave us water."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Crew did not collect trash, so passengers stuffed trash in the seats and was not cleaned between flights."
Pros: "Crew was nice, landing smooth"
Cons: "Very little space between seats"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Seats so close together that my boyfriend couldn't fit his legs in. Thankfully it was a short flight."
