Airline reviews

Cons: "Two hours stuck at gate with no information. Info on site and at airport on baggage costs different. Left bag behind to fit more cargo. Two days and haven’t delivered bag."

Cons: "During covid pandemic they put no efforts to show the aircraft clean or maintained the distance between passengers"

Cons: "Food!"

Cons: "Food! Communication between airports. They were not prepared in Belem for late travelers from Fortaleza who needed to catch the flight at the last minute to Fort Lauderdale. I.e. security had already left and they had to call them back."

Cons: "Refreshments were minimal."

Pros: "extremely attentive crew. courtesy necessaire pack. very clean plane."

Pros: "extremely considerate crew. Courtesy necessaire pack. very clean plane"

Cons: "Would have been better if the first leg of the flight had not been so late that my connection could never work. Got transferred to a later latam flight with connection but still"

Pros: "The crew was so kind, the food was great. The in flight entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "The plane was very cold!"

Pros: "Very clean airplane and excellent crew"

Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Seat not confortable vry tide"

Cons: "Bad size almost became a problem... bins are very small"

Pros: "Azul is always amazing in terms of service!"
Cons: "The price!"

Pros: "Polite and friendly crew. Comfortable seats, new plane."
Cons: "Definitely the food could be better. It was tasteless."

Pros: "Crew was very good, one crew member took time to make me coffee as I entered the plane"
Cons: "The food could have been better, maybe a bit more legroom. But definitely would like better food. The spaghetti and meatballs were good dinner, but I did not like the vegatables. I did, however, like the pudim."

Pros: "Friendly crew, most spoke at least some English"
Cons: "Only food for purchase, would be nice to have second language option on some of the entertainment"

Cons: "I was charged for luggage and I wasn’t given the option to purchase luggage while booking the flight"

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive. Most of them spoke English and Spanish in addition to Portuguese."
Cons: "The snacks could have been healthier and the bathroom could have been cleaner."

Pros: "Good food, good plain condition, good entertainment"

Pros: "Bus service from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 was clearly marked and frequent. The flight crew members were all helpful and friendly and I enjoyed the drink (especially suco de maracuja) and snack offerings. As I spoke only limited Portuguese, I greatly appreciated the attempts made by the ground staff and flight crew to communicate with me, both in English and via hand gestures. I am certain that no domestic airline would be so helpful to non-English speakers in the USA!"
Cons: "I realize Azul cannot help being stuck in Terminal 2, but it's not the most comfortable place to wait for a flight. Also, after I walked through the gate, several boarding flights merged confusingly in a single passageway with exits to multiple planes and many people got lost and ended up (temporarily!) on the wrong airplane, despite heroic attempts by the ground crew to direct passenger traffic. There must be a better method than having everyone follow colored lines to the planes - it wasn't working!"

Cons: "The crew was non-responsive to simple requests. The food was abismal and void of nutrition."

Pros: "Flight on tine"

Pros: "Very nice and modern plane with attentative staff. Also they served maybe the best airplane food I’ve ever had."
Cons: "We boarded just a bit late but still arrived on schedule."

Pros: "Loved all the support and attention from the crew"

Pros: "I really love how friendly the crew was! The seats were also very comfortable for a plane. I couldn’t get over how there were cameras to look at outside of the plane for those who didn’t have window seats as it helped with some landing anxiety. The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding was a bit confusing as the crew members spoke a majority of Portuguese and translated only very few times. I had to ask a crew memeber when I would board."

Pros: "Azul service was good as usual. Plane was on time arrival. No complaints"

Pros: "CLEAN EFFICIENT"
Cons: "BILLING FOR SEATS THAT ARE CLEARLY AVAILABLE, BLOCKING 75% OF SEATS TO RAISE PRICES TO SIT TOGETHER!"

Pros: "CLEAN, NICE, EFFICIENT"
Cons: "BAD THAT THEY CHARGE FOR OPEN SEATS AND BLOCK 75% OF PLANE SO YOU PAY RIDICULOUS FEES"

Pros: "Flights were punctual, seats were better than average, and upgrades were available."
Cons: "Planes needed updating, noises heard were concerning, food was below average, and the landings were a little rough."

Pros: "The selection of tv shows (Game of Thrones)"
Cons: "Not much leg room (I’m six feet tall)"

Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "The staff was very unprofessional, check in was over 30 minutes and we were charges for the baggage even though we showed a proof that the system didnt let us check in before. While boarding the representative was so stressed she blew air in our faces and took the boarding passes so agresivally we were shocked! On board the flight attended did not speck English or at least didnt want to, so other passenger had to explain us what she was saying. Very very unprofessional, we will never use azul again in the future."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flight was canceled without inform. We had to take a 5:30 bis trip to Teresina in order to go to VCP and then to BSB. Bizarre.."

Pros: "It was nice. The staff were great"

Pros: "Very smooth. I slept like a baby, haha"
Cons: "Nothing bad."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Air conditioning in my seat was broken and my blood pressure went down"

Cons: "The arrogant employees at Gov. Valadares didnt tell me they were sending me to another airport making me miss my conection flight in the process. This information was disclosed only after I asked if the flight was on time because I had a international flight to catch at my final destination Sao Paulo - GRU. Instead of helping and apologizing for the hassle, the attendant said that I had to pay for my carry-on (that was 10kg) because I had another hand bag with my laptop in it. I said that I would not pay, and that Azul should return me money first for not delivering the service I purchase - which was the flight from Governador Valadares, MG to Sao Paulo, SP (with a quick stop in Belo Horizonte, MG). Instead they were making me miss my international flight, and besides not taking any responsibility for it, this woman is telling me that I had to pay for a carry on?!? I was mesmirized by the lack of sense of this flight attendant. After telling me that I was going to get in Sao Paulo at 9pm instead of 5pm, and that I would have to run to get a bus to another terminal and hopefully make it to my international flight that was at 10:20pm, she insisted I’d pay. I told her that if she could get me to my destination at 5pm maybe I wouldn’t mind paying, but since that wasn’t the case, and I’d have to run to try to catch another flight because of Azul Airlines, that she should really think about it and let it go, and let me go with my bag as a carry on. She gave me the ticket, and as I grabbed my bag and went towards the bus, she threatened me, saying that in Ipatinga and in Belo Horizonte (my first conection flight) they would not allow me on the plane with the carry on. Since the non-sense continued I just took her as a mentally disable person, and ignored her threat. A full bus and 2 vans headed to Ipatinga (100km away in a dangerous highway), packing the flight there, really making me think that this non-sense was just a way Azul Airlines figured out to save money in fuel. The flight was completely full, the AC not working properly, and with the heat and humidity people were smelly. It was absolutely awful. The flight attendants in Ipatinga (way nicer than the ones in Gov. Valadares), distributed water to the passengers that looked like they were about to faint, the ones sweating profusely, the elderly and the kids. By the way, the carry on bag was not an issue at the other airports. Once in Belo Horizonte I noticed that my original Azul flight from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo at 3:30pm as 1 hour and 15 minutes LATE. I run to the gate and explained what happened and after crying out loud was able to convince the Azul attendants to let me in on that flight so I wouldn’t miss my international flight. They made me wait until last minute but I cried: this is the flight I had a ticket for. It’s only fair you let me in! So they did. And I made my other flight. But not before I got upset, had a headache, stomach ache and felt demoralized by Azul staff."

Pros: "No delays"

Cons: "Unacceptable tardy flight."

Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The flight arrived at MEX on time, but for reasons I don’t know, we could not exit the plane for an hour after arriving at the gate. This hour delay caused me to miss my next flight to Puerto Escondido, Mexico on Viva Aerobus. I had to stay the night in Mexico City because it was the last flight leaving that night, and I had to purchase a new flight to Puerto Escondido."

Pros: "yes"

Pros: "Not really"
Cons: "Being on time not delay 40 min"

Pros: "Comfort and safety"

Pros: "Delta is doing a great job keeping everything calm and clean during this pandemic!"

Pros: "Social distanced seating"

Pros: "Delta is the airline to fly if you have to fly (like I did) during a pandemic. They made sure at every turn we felt as safe as possible. They had passengers distanced from each other the whole time, handed out sanitizing wipes as we walked on the plane, made sure folks kept their masks on, gave us individual little baggies with snacks and water bottles that also had individual hand sanitizer packets. I felt so much more safe flying Delta on my way home to Hawaii in July than I did when I flew American Airlines on my way to the mainland in June."

Pros: "Priority boarding and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

Pros: "I did not like nothing"
Cons: "Custom took for ever they only had 2 agents working and I Missed my fight to nyc"

Cons: "4 hour maintenance delay. Arrived at 2 am, after boarding a different plane."

Pros: "This was a code share flight on a delta ticket but a virgin airline, the entertainment was great with the seat back selection, the seat comfy and the staff friendly."
Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"

Pros: "For a small plane, staff did good job with two meals, etc."

Pros: "Straight forward, no BS. Love it"

Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system didn't work. Two of the flight attendants were rude. I thing they absolutely hate their job. Expressions of annoyance on their face, impatience, no thank yous no good will... The first "meal" was a choice of salty or sweet cookies, and a think. The breakfast was at least in the mediocre category..."

Pros: "Crew members and service was good"
Cons: "Our flight got delayed and nobody would tell us what happened, the flight was supposed to depart at 10:20 but I got an email at 1:29 pm advising about the delay."

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "went to the airport to checkin for my flight from lax to panama, with a connecting flight to sao paulo, only to be told that because i didn't select a seat when i bought my ticket over 2 months prior, the airlines sold my seat (they overbooked the flight by 5 people or so). i had to wait at lax for the next flight, which wasn't until 8 hours later. the problem here was that i had bought a ticket to get to rio from sao paulo, and this delay made me miss that flight. so i had to buy another ticket, which was $175. i was only compensated a $400 voucher for missing the flight and for my time. not worth it. the airlines only provide you with a blanket. no pillow."

Pros: "THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND THE CREW WAS HELPFUL, POLITE AND FRIENDLY."
Cons: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE BUT DID NOT FULLY EXTEND. IT WAS NOT EASY TO SET THEM IN THE DESIRED POSITION BECAUSE OF THE BOTTONS THAT DID NOT ALWAYS RESPOND THE REQUEST."

Pros: "Flight was on time, yeah! Cabin temp was good. Entertainment selection was good."

The in-flight food was of good quality, particularly for airline food. Staff was helpful, and everything from check-in to when we deboarded in our final destination was seamless."

Pros: "Everything excelent services, profesional"
Cons: "Keep like that congrat !!!!"

Cons: "They intolerant, unprofessional, they overbook flights and blame the passenger, they don't help you when this happens, they cancelled my booking and tried to blame me, they act as if they have a right to treat a customer like garbage. Don't EVER book a flight with this company. If you do you are taking a huge risk."

Pros: "Everyone was extremely kind and helpful!"

Pros: "I flew executive class. The staff was very friendly and professional on the ground and on the air. seats are comfortable and there's a lot of storage space. The plane left on time and entertainment option aboard is great. What I did not like is that being seated in row 3, for four flights, I never got to eat the meal I wanted. It's seems the option always dies in row 2, just after less than half of the passengers flying executive class have ordered they meal. The rest was great and I would fly copa again!"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"

Pros: "The empanada was good."
Cons: "Boarding felt unorganized"

Pros: "Total failure deception! I was denied access to the flight because of going into Peru they said I had to have a round-trip ticket and Copa would not let me on board. I was told this and after standing in line for over an hour waiting to check in at almost midnight in LAX. I spent hours on line I spent hours on the phone trying to recoup the situation. they wanted to charge me $325 to make changes plus other expenses of the airfare. I missed important connections in Peru. I am applying for a retirement visa there I should've been allowed to deal with immigration in Peru . However if it is the regulation of that airline that I'm not allowed in there without a round-trip ticket why did kayak sell it to me? Kayak cost me $539 and change not to mention a week and a half late getting to Peru! Customer service was just pretty much ridiculous I spent a lot of time on hold so somebody could go ask somebody who Ask somebody else a question. I could understand no refund however that was just downright not fair kayak and Copa airline basically screwed me over."
Cons: "See the above"

Pros: "xxx"
Cons: "xxx"

Pros: "Had movies and tv shows for free"
Cons: "This is the letter I wrote to the airline My sister in law and I rode your airline for the first time on July 2, 2016 to fly to Bogota from the United States. We first couldn't download our boarding passes on our phones so we were forced to wait for 1.5 hrs in line. (45 min of that which had no one behind the desk working and hundreds of people just standing in lines.) Finally after we checked in we went to the gate and we saw on our tickets that she and I were not sitting together even though I booked the flights for us together and chose our seats to be right next to each other months in advance. I went to the guy at the counter and he said that "it's a full flight, nothing they could do and you will just have to write a letter." My sister is diabetic and needs insulin medicine and to check her blood sugar and since we were unable to sit next to each other we were forced to go do this in the bathroom. Not only that, but to be on a 7 hr flight not sitting with each other when we were supposed to be is very unprofessional. The whole ordeal didn't bode well for your future repeat business of your passengers. Just very unhappy all around regarding using Copa Airlines."

Pros: "The food and free movies."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: ":("
Cons: "We got to the airport 2 hours early and they had us line up in a Very slow moving line. When we finally reached the front an hour had gone by and the customer service rep then said we must have an exit flight from Guyana to get our boarding pass. This is the first we'd heard of this although we had researched visa requirements, etc for Guyana. We stepped out of line and quickly booked a flight on our phone, but when we tried to jump back in again the attendant made us wait in line again (a shorter one, but not smart considering the time crunch at that point. Finally we got to the front again and the attendant was very slow about entering our information. Then suddenly she calmly noted, "oh, it's too late to check you in, you can't make this flight." ... We were upset to say the least and after pestering her further about a reimbursement she said we would have to wait until she dealt with all the other customers (a long line of an hour or more) and that she couldn't put us on the next few flights because they were full. Finally she let us borrow her phone so that WE could call customer service and try to deal with it. They of course gave us the run around and we still don't have a reimbursement and will likely never book with Copa airlines again. Hopefully after a few more phone calls we can eventually get reimbursed. :("

Pros: "the food"
Cons: "very unhelpful staff have to be there 3 to 4 hours to get on a flight the lack of staff at the airport kiosks not understanding with medical emergencies"

Pros: "Excellent in flight service . Ability to check bags for free. No additional costs. Great meals and movies"

Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."

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: "There was a fee to carry 2 normal size bags.. This was not disclosed in ur website and i will file a complaint"

Pros: "Crew members were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seats"

Pros: "On my way back I asked for water as the cabin was hot .. and I was told to go back to my seat and buckle up."
Cons: "That they would have turned down the temperature and immediately provided water."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The American Airlines flight was delayed by 1hr. When landing in SFO we waited on the strip for 20mins to get to our gate."

Pros: "The crew was amazing"

Pros: "Everything was on time. Food was good and movie selection was good"

Pros: "Service and great crew"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Flight from LAX to Lima good enough. Flight from Lima to Buenos Aires very bad. Old plane food sucked and entertainment non existent."

Pros: "food and flight attendants"
Cons: "not enough room for legs in latam and japan airlines...I know is just economy class but still for such a long flight it should be a bit more comfortable"

Cons: "My baggage was lost"

Pros: "About as comfortable as it could be given a 10 hour flight and a pretty full plane."
Cons: "Boarding at LAX was unpleasant. Waited in a crowded shuttle bus for at least 20 minutes then long drive to a remote boarding gate."

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: "The food improved a lot"
Cons: "They used to have great airplanes when it was LAN now the airplane was very old uncortable and the touchscreen barely worked. I used to like a lot LAN but now their quality is very bad. Also I traveled with my 3 year old son and they gave us separated seats. And I asked if we can have better seats for the next fly and they refuse because they supposed to be full but I notice close to me was a empty row and someone noticed that and move to it. They could made the things a little more easy with a mom with a toddler. They used to be more considered"

Pros: "Good food. Comfortable seats. Helpful attendants when approached."
Cons: "Cramped quarters-fortunately I am thin, got an aisle seat, and was next to a medium-sized person. When I pushed the call button repeatedly, no one came."

Cons: "A little food"

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours in Lima. Stood on the line to get a usd6 voucher for food, same as all passengers when I was flying business. No lounge service."

Pros: "They rebooked us out of Orange County, a different airport, without extra charge."
Cons: "Seemed like they should have known the plane would have been late when they told us all good eight hours earlier, as plane was still in Lima when we arrived at LAX and hence our flight was cancelled but only after driving up to LA and waiting at check in an hour."

Cons: "My itinerary was changed without my knowledge, the new fights included more stopovers, longer flights, and I was not seated with my husband. In addition, most flights were delayed. This experience was awful."

Pros: "Their staff really try to make you comfortable. The first half of the flight was in a 767. Tight but not too bad. Really good hot food and nice collection of movies and entertainment."
Cons: "."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very good and so was the overall service."
Cons: "Seat rowa too close together, not enough legroom."

Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable flight, extremely tight seats, kids running around during most of the flight. Terrible experience seating next to bathrooms, flight attendant keep trowing some sort of air freshener to mask the bathroom disgusting smell, and it didn’t not work well. Ended up breathing the most disgusting smell for hours, arrived to destination with an upside down stomach and nausea."

Cons: "Poor service. Not too friendly crew. I normally fly American but being myself Chilean, I thought I'd give Latam a chance but was disappointed. I was travelling with my daughter and 2 yr old grandaughter and felt that they didn't give us any special attention in regards to baby.I used to be a flight attendant and In my day the standards of service were SO MUCH HIGHER!! I Will not fly Latam next time."

Pros: "Crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "I was very disappointed to discover that I was not able to choose my seat because I bought my ticket from a third party. The boarding gate crew seemed stressed and were a bit short with passengers waiting for seat assignments."

Pros: "There was a lot of leg room on this plane. I do not think they have retrofitted it yet to today's money making planes as other airlines have done. We left late, but we arrived only a few minutes late."
Cons: "The boarding process took almost two hours. We were shuttled to a remote location, then we sat on the airplane for about an hour. We finally took off around 2:45."

Pros: "That wine was included in the drink selections"
Cons: "Didn't have an option for vegetarian dish. The outlet cord on the seat was not working."

Pros: "Crew was nice, good food, nice aircraft, good entertainment options."
Cons: "Late departure"

Pros: "The food, crew, and entertainment were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was poor. The flight was delayed and there was not explanation at the gate that there was a delay or why. I don't understand why our carry on bags needed to be searched. We were put in a line with only one person doing the bag checks while the other line had over two people checking bags."

Pros: "Crew was amazing, movies good, boarding fast"
Cons: "Didn't get seat I choose, and food was bad I had pasta was okay, then I had like a toasted ham and cheese and the bread was rock hard didn't even touch it"

Cons: "My fly was delate for 2 hours reason from previous fly cancellation. They didn't notified me."

Pros: "Solid crew, clean planes, safe pilots. Exceptional staff support at LATAM check-in at LAX."
Cons: "I arrived 3 hours early to my flight, which I had been notified that morning of a 2hr delay. Fortunately the woman who checked me in realized there was 1 seat available on the last flight that would get me to Lima in time for my connection flight (departing same time as my flight pre-delay). She personally got me to the front of the line, and ran with me just about to the gate, where I caught a shuttle to the plane. If she hadn't done so, and if I hadn't checked in so early, I would have been forced to stay in Lima 24hrs, despite buying a rightful seat and having reservations in Buenos Aires. It is appalling and unacceptable that y'all continue to overbook flights, causing incredible trouble, inconvenience and potential harm to your customers. For a service that costs so much, the only acceptable delays are weather and mechanically related. if it hadn't been for amazing staff immediately, I would've been furiously waiting in a city I didn't need or want to be in. Customer service will continue to grow your business or impede it negatively-- how y'all act is up to you. I appreciate how well I was taken care of by several kind individuals."

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: "The entertainment was good. The crew was very friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "The coach seats were unreasonably small. I have never been on an airline with such small coach seats. There was virtually no leg room. For this reason alone, I don't think I would fly LATAM again for a long distance flight. It was too uncomfortable."

Pros: "Everything ran smoothly. Attendants seemed to care equally about being welcoming and timely."

Cons: "I was charged 200 dollars to transport a 400 dollars surfboard. This makes it prohibitive for anyone to travel with our entertainment equipment. It should only qualify as sport equipment for remunerated athletes, not amateurs like me."

Pros: "Smooth ride. Nice hospitality in the evening flt."
Cons: "No good food options"

Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Seats aren't so comfortable"

Cons: "The flight was delayed in LAX, and consequently I missed my connection to Cuzco. My luggage was also misplaced"

Pros: "Avión silencioso"
Cons: "45 minutos de espera en tierra al aterrizar"

Cons: "Everything. We booked flights a half year in advance yet they forced a couple of us to upgrade to premium in order to get seats. They then separated one of the couples with premium seating without notice so some other couple could sit next to each other. Their website didn't allow us to use an electronic boarding pass. Its cumbersome and uninformative. Some of the attendants are incredibly rude."

Pros: "Flight was smooth and individual entertainment screen was nice."
Cons: "We were never informed of our gate (not on boarding pass, not on display board at airport). After searching the entire terminal, the gate didn't have the flight listed either, but we eventually identified a floor sign with the airline logo and found our flight. In flight entertainment screens were not very responsive to touch, and would have been better with a list of movies/tv/games, instead of 1 show per tap since the screen was iffy on responsiveness."

Pros: "The meal offerings given my "special" menu request (vegetarian) was better than expected, portions were of a nice quantity, the food wasn't bland, and in terms of variety they offered a good food selection. The available entertainment catalog (movies, TV shows, etc) was vast, and included recently released films. I also love that LAN offers pillows, blankets (of good, warm material) and headsets. The crew was attentive and helpful. The plane plane was clean, which is expected to be but not always ends up being that way."
Cons: "The plane looked like an older model, which is not a problem itself, the problems were: my seat was missing the cup holder ring (looked like it broke) meaning no place to keep a cup to drink water throughout the flight. The remote for the "t.v."/entertainment system, that is nestled on the side of the seat, wasn't working and the touch screen glitched (it would freeze, or kick me back to the root menu while I was browsing through options) Small technical problems that given the $$ flights cost, one expects them to work properly."

Pros: "The airline was nice and updated, entertainment was great with lots of new movies to watch for free"
Cons: "The boarding process felt like a heads of cattle. We had to walk two miles through 5 wings of the terminal. Once we got there, thought we'd be just on time but ended up waiting in the terminal for 30 extra minutes, then boarded a bus which sat for another 20, then on the plane we sat for at least 30 more minutes. It was not a good experience. The food was also just average with little options to choose from"

Pros: "Nice new 787 service was very good They don't make you stay in your seat. You can get up and walk around"

Cons: "The flight LAN 601M was cancelled due to mechanical issues. I waited 4 hours in line to find out at the end that they cannot reroute me to Buenos Aires in time for my Monday 9 pm speech. I had no choice but to cancel the entire trip. I hope Kayak would help me get a full refund from LAN."

Pros: "The crew was good. The seats fine."
Cons: "The sana distancia was not respected in the airline."

Pros: "Everything it was so fast and excellent"
Cons: "The food in the airplane"

Pros: "the good serice"
Cons: "better plan es"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."

Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "More snacks"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, it took very long boarding and getting off the plane. People was standing when plane still taxiing and crew didn’t do nothing."

Cons: "Did not get the sense that check-in staff was terribly concerned about getting us checked in quickly."

Pros: "The staff are very nice and accommodating."

Cons: "I checked in on line but went to check in desk to make sure my bag wasn't too heavy and the man changed my seat! Then I went back and the next guy said I couldn't have my seat even though it was 2minutes later and gave me a new seat but a better seat. Then the first guy comes over to give me a boarding pass for my second flight and again he changed my seat to an awful seat. And I wanted to sit next to a friend from Mexico City to Lima so that seat change was really mean. Once one the plane the man in my original seat got an upgrade so I got to sit next to my friend about half way through the flight when she came to tell me about the empty seat when she came to the back of the plane to use the bathroom."

Cons: "All the announcements are in Spanish which makes it hard for everyone else to understand. Flight departure was delayed as well."

Pros: "Kindnesses and attentive at all time"

Cons: "Both planes delayed and carry on luggage lost"

Cons: "I love the service The workers there really helpful and friendly"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfort,"
Cons: "Crew was really RUDE"

Cons: "We got premium economy seats but no priority boarding or priority bag drop as promised. Also, the entertainment system did not work."

Pros: "The seats were reasonably comfortable and the legroom was decent."
Cons: "It was awful. My original flight was scheduled to depart March 30 at 11:55. Then Aeromexico changed it to 1:35am in March 31. They refused to let me change flights when this happened. I wanted to fly standby on an earlier flight, so I called everyday for 2 weeks to confirm how many seats were left. Everyone I talked to told me I could fly standby if it was he same day as my ticket. I got to the airport and the flight attendant at check in told me “standby doesn’t exist.” When I asked how much it would be to change my ticket, she just said “very expensive.” She told me she’d have to check me out of my current flight and risk me losing my seat on that flight, because it was overbooked just to see the price for the earlier flight. I told her I’d be willing to pay up to $200 to switch to the earlier flight and she told me it was very expensive and she wouldn’t do it. I came back later that night and took my scheduled flight. I carried on my bag from SFO to MEX. On my second flight from MEX to BOG, the attendant told an older woman she had to check her bag because the overhead was going to be too full. I volunteered to check my bag instead so she could keep her bag. Then Aeromexico lost my bag. When I got to BOG, they told me I couldn’t have a voucher because it was my fault for bringing a bag that was too big. Finally they gave me $100 because the next day was Easter and I had no clothes for church. I wasted over 2 hours of my vacation at the Bogota airport while Aeromexico searched for my bag. They said they’d call as soon as they found it. No one ever called. I called and they asked “what color is your bag?” I said “red” and the attendant said they had it. It was delivered several hours after this call despite the fact that the airport is less than 20 minutes from where we are staying. I didn’t think an airline could be worse han United, but Aeromexico steals the cake."

Pros: "They did all they were supposed to do. Good trip"

Pros: "The only 2 thing I liked was the flight was peaceful and the movies."
Cons: "No me gusta como me trataron uando le pregunté a las aeromosas donde estaba el l baño contestan como enojadas o cuando pregunté si el jamón del sándwich era d puerco o d pavo Y me contesto de mala gana q no sabía con un tono molesto. o cuando pregunté si tenía q llenar la forma q dan antes d bajar el avión y me contestaban enojadas uno respondían a mi pregunta. Y no es la primera vez q me pasa siempre son haci. Deberían tener más tacto para tratar a los clientes y ser más amables. Gracias a nosotros los q viajamos en avión ellAs tienen trabajo."

Pros: "I try to sit in the front of the aircraft, the leg room is great and you get to watch everyone who enters."

Pros: "arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "took an hour to taxi after landing no vegetarian options for food"

Pros: "The services on the counter"
Cons: "My flight was delayed"

Pros: "man being able to watch movies makes all the difference!"
Cons: "SEats too small...but that's pretty much any airline."

Pros: "Boarding time, entertainment, personnel."
Cons: "Losing connection flight and wait almost 11 hours overnight for next flight."

Pros: "costumer service"
Cons: "The way they operate now where you have to pay for checking luggage and that we depart 30 minutes late and Apparently Aeromexico is been having problems with the tickets they don’t work when you go to the scanner and you have to go back and print your boarding pass that’s a problem because you have to start back in the line"

Cons: "Terrible wait lines , espec ially at customs"

Cons: "Rows ridiculously close together."

Pros: "Actual flights were on time"
Cons: "The airline changed my flight a few days before my trip changing my layover from 2 to 15 hours, providing no form of compensation. I suspect they cancelled my original flight because it was not full. A trip with a 15 hour layover would have been cheaper originally. Mexico city airport has poor amenities and internet access."

Pros: "Food and drink offerings, the staff were professsional and courteous."
Cons: "TSA was a disaster, which is no reflection on this carrier but that experience tainted the trip. The plane seating was not comfortable. The entertainment offering was dated and deficient. The food option was sandwich or no sandwich."

Pros: "Efficient and friendly service."

Cons: "Our flight got changed and we received no notification. Instead of 1 stop we ended up with two. Two flights were delayed therefore we missed the third one. Just a terrible experience. The staff was very rude, had no people skills, and didn’t know how to explain the situation."

Pros: "Flight was delayed because of weather conditions I understand that is impossible to prevent, but the lack of communication with all the delays I left home 10:30pm Friday dec 1st and I’m still in Mexico City and I haven’t arrive to my destination. Here in Mexico City was a total mess, nobody knew anything and I run everywhere trying to get my flight but I got wrong info and i missed my flight! Had to wait 5 note hours in mex city and willl arrive midnight!"
Cons: "Worst customer service ever, I’m flying in business to bog and it a total misrepresentation in regards of the business seats I saw those flat beds in the website etc....I guess it depends of the itinerary but they should let you know about it! Will never ever flight with aeromexico again. The poor attitude of the employees! Sad"

Pros: "Everything specially the service"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "No comentes"
Cons: "Nothing's"

Pros: "On time flight, extremely efficient crew, comfortable seats, entertainment, meal, drinks."
Cons: "Boarding, paid for upgrade but was second to last zone to board, leaving me to scramble for Room for carry on. Flight crew was friendly enough except for one, she seemed put off by everyone on board, but especially me. Lol. Basically threw the tray of food on my table and on the backside, pulled tray before I was done. She hopefully was having a bad day."

Cons: "On my way to Lima I flew through Mexico City. It took over three hours to get through customs and caused me to get to my gate minutes before the flight closed its gate. For this reason I made note to upgrade my flight so I could be close to the front of the plane and get to customs as quickly as possible. Aeromexico made me check my bag which is the SAME bag I came down with. Same size, same Weight. Their reasoning for this was because they had a full flight, yet I had paid extra to upgrade in the first place and their policy states you can bring on one carry on to store in the overhead. I'll likely miss my connection due to this. I will never fly Aeromexico again."

Pros: "- Personal Media Station - Food - Water served at least twice - Fast flight"
Cons: "- Not enough space to fit my carry-on - No self service for check-in in the airport."

Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to have snacks and drinks offered for free in this airline. The on-flight entertainment offers a pretty good selection for a wide variety of tastes. Good flight experience"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Every thing"

Cons: "eveything was bad"

Pros: "Courteous, professional, efficient. Good sense of humor!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "None"
Cons: "How the gate lady was rude when asked a question. No personal entertainment system."

Pros: "This company is obviously dedicated to providing a quality product."

Cons: "Flight delayed 2.5 hours. Terrible customer service. Lack sense of urgency once time to go. Lack of coordination. Horrible customer interfacing and attitude"

Cons: "1am flight would have been nice to sleep. But being in the very last row aisle seat right next to the galley and bathroom was impossible. Very noisy wish people often bumping into me. Seat was terribly uncomfortable and the arm rest was broken making it even worse"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible service, old planes, running 1 hour late, no entertainment"

Pros: "Excellent legroom, no hidden charges, nice friendly service, on time arrival, great price"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Crew members are ok"
Cons: "Poor management"

Pros: "Found tickets to Mexico cheaper than any other place."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight boarded 40 min late with zero announcements made at the gate. Arrived late to Mexico City for connecting flight. Called Aeromexico while waiting in line to clear customs to tell them a group of 11 would be arriving late to the gate. They let the plane leave early and tried to charge a change fee."
