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.

Cons: "All good, thanks"
Pros: "The crew was nice for the most part"
Cons: "I was told I HAD to pick up my bag at the Mexico City layover, which turned out to not be true. Because I was told by 2 different people AND the flight announcement that I had to, it caused a lot of undue stress when I waited for my bag and it never showed up, because it was being sent all the way to Merida, my final destination. I thought my bag was lost, and I was scared flying to another country by myself, so it would have really helped my trip if they understood to tell me to look on my baggage receipt what city it said on there."

I needed to wait 12hs. Until I was able to get my connection...,crazy!! No really any accommodations from that company to their clients."
Pros: "I Like Aeromexico planes. Everything was very good until we landed."
Cons: "Terrible experience. 2 and half hours is not enough time to make a connection. First we waited 1 hour to get to the gate, then 1 hour to get the luggage and then 40 minutes at the connection desk. Nobody cares to organize the process so that passengers won't miss their connections. Aeromexico staff at the Mexico City airport is slow and poorly coordinated."

Cons: "less legroom in my seat than my neighbors'"
Pros: "Flight on time. Lots of legroom. (Exit row.)"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding."
Cons: "It was a horrible flight because the plane did not land in Mexico city due to fog. The plane was about 600 feet from the ground and then diverted to Acapulo. We sat on the plane for 3 hours then waited in line for an additional 4 hours to get another flight. Then when we got to Mexico city, our next flight was canceled after boarding the plane. Again their excuse was due to weather. All other airlines were landing and taking off just fine. Aeromexico did not compensate us and we ended up spending the night in the airport. We will never fly Aeromexico again!"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "very uncomfortable and tight seating. Almost impossible to eat with a passenger sitting next to you. No salt, pepper or butter with food. Dried out tasteless, inedible bun served with meal. Cabin crew a little indifferent."
Pros: "The number of movies in the flight from Mexico City to chicago"
Cons: "Food is terrible. Lines in Argentina and Mexico City are insane. I will avoid Aeromexico in the future as it was not worth it The planes were old. People on board nice. But the land crew in Buenos Aires was very rude. The lines were interminable and people not organized at all. argentina is beautiful but the international airport is one of the worst. And Aeromexico seem to add to the chaos."

Cons: "The food was plain horrible, and miserable. Shame on the company to dare serve a meal like that! The entertainment screen did not work and nobody responded to my complaint. The crew ( mainly the female part of the team) was unfriendly."
Pros: "As soon as we were on the plane the service was efficient and very courteous."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. The process was very disorganized, they did not honor previous seat reservations even when people paid extra for a better seat. They treated customers as if it was their fault."
Cons: "Delay! Delay! Always delay!"
Pros: "crew, entertainment and food."
Cons: "I paid too much money for my luggage (one suitcase) without any explanation at the moment. The lady sent me to paid while she weighted my suitcase. Later, I saw a label that said overweight. (I could take stuff out of it if I knew. I could safe $400 pesos)"
Cons: "Boarding in. Irnos Aires was disorganized and late. It took three hours to go thru the Mexico City airport as an in transit passenger. Flight from Mexico City left one hour late making me miss my connection. Poor experience which I will not repeat!"

Pros: "Movies snacks coke very friendly"
Pros: "Schedule on time"
Pros: "The New airplanes. great crew with excellent team work concepts"
Pros: "I liked the service, entertainment, pretty much everything. The flight attendants were really nice. I also liked that the plane it's always on time like boarding time a little late but landing time is on point, I've enjoyed my first experience with this airline."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process because it's not organized, like they could just make it zone by zone instead of just doing whatever they want. It makes everyone get irritated and very upset."
Cons: "We had items stolen from two luggages. The were cell phones and the accessories plus some jewelry. These could have only been know by means of the security scans of the luggage. One item disappeared for a day. None of the other four were tapered with. I have contacted Aeromexico twice by email while in Mexico. The first time I was told someone would contact me and no one did. The second time there was no reply. I asked that some call be on my cell and I have received nothing."
Pros: "Aeromexico stole my money and never let me board a flight. My initial flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after a 3 hour delay in the airport. At this point it was 3AM and all passengers were told to call Aeromexico's support number to re-book their flights. Aeromexico staff does not speak English well and when I asked them to speak slower I was cursed at and hung up on. I finally called again and was given 2 options: agree to a flight that would DESTROY my vacation or get a refund. Scared and exhausted, I told them I didn't understand, and the flight didn't work, and guess what, they re-booked me anyway, and said that since I was re-booked any change to my ticket would entitles them to my entire $1,100 fare. Aeromexico is a criminal enterprise. Never book with them! Kayak, you should cut all ties with this airline!"
Cons: "It was a terrible flight. Flight delayed about 2 hrs due to crew being late, "stock in customs". When they arrived the gate, they were all with their bags of food, etc. Obviously they were stock in food pick-up line! Plane very old, dirty, no entertainment!"
Cons: "When a flight is scheduled for a customer, connecting flight to another country, I highly recommend you all give customers with at least two hour layover. I missed my flight because I was not informed I would have to grab my luggage and recheck them. This is a nightmare!"
Pros: "the food the crew"
Cons: "the tv options were freezing up at times"
