Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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."
Cons: "More room legs needed."
Cons: "Have a wheel chair waiting for me on arrival at Lima , Peru. Our plane arrived by 1 am. And felt kind of lost :/"
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: "Wonderful people, great attitudes, and the experience I’ve come to expect."
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"
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."
Cons: "Plane was 6.5 hours late taking off. I missed a meeting in Cusco because overall I arrived 8 hours past my scheduled arrival time."
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."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "I tried to book my seat on line to get an aisle or window and it wouldn't let me choose me seat."
Cons: "Seats very small. And I’m only size 33!"
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: "Overall I love the professionalism and customer service of LATAM. The interior lighting of the aircraft makes a big difference. The staff is always super polite and friendly. It's my favorite airline."
Cons: "On a 10 hour flight (LAX to Santiago Chile) they should offer more snacks and drinks for people to help themselves to in economy class. Other airlines have water and juice available I felt like I was bothering a crew member every time asked for a glass of water, when I could have just helped myself. Also, maybe have a few light snacks available. After a very light lunch, 8 and a half hours is a very long wait till breakfast!"
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: "What a nice surprise to be able to stretch out after a multi-leg international trip!"
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."
Cons: "A death in the family cause us to change our flight , they were not accommodating and were extremely insensitive. Try your best not to use kayak or Latam."
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: "It was a new plane and the service was also good"
Pros: "Nice crew and reasonable seats. With only 20-30 on the flight there was plenary of room and to spare to lay down across the empty seats (a sad reality)."
Cons: "Given the circumstances not much. I hope we return to full planes and less difficult travel scenarios that enable it."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Cons: "The seats, are getting Narrow. Very constricting."
Pros: "On time. Warm greetings from the pilots. New aircraft, clean, great entertainment."
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "Seats we fine"
Cons: "Delay 2 hours"
Pros: "great entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendance kindly asked the passengers to allow for the people on the back with very thigh connections, due to stupids delays, to deplane first, but of course almost no one listened and as soon the plane reach the gate everyone stranded up clogging the hallway. There should be more education to the passenger in general. If you don't have a connection, just stay put for an extra 5 minutes, is nothing crazy to do."
Cons: "Waiting area completely packed, now sits available at all. Delays, a delay for weather or mechanical issues is understandable, but just because too many human factors, is unfortunately."
Cons: "Breakfast - lots of sugary items"
Cons: "The worst flight we ever been. Delayed for a long time. We wasted our two days of vacation."
Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."
Pros: "Nice seats, good food, good service"
Pros: "The flight was great. Lots of movies to choose from. Food was pretty good too."
Cons: "They moved our flight around multiple times. We first had a layover in Chicago then through multiple emails and one phone call they just flew us straight to London with no layover. It all worked out it was just stressful not knowing exactly when we were flying out and if we were going to make our connecting flights. It did work out and we did make it."
Pros: "The crew has invited my kids to take a picture with them. My wife and I have been impressed."
Pros: "Should have booked AA instead of BA."
Cons: "AA couldn't find BA reservation. poor integration of services"
Pros: "The very long TSA line was very fast. Good job TSA. Flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Found the first class seat capsule uncomfortable after about three n hours. Certainly would not want it for Transocean flights."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Pros: "Wonderful and super friendly crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute. We were applicable to switch with another couple who were in the same situation as us....."
Cons: "My flight from SFO to Miami was delayed so I missed my connection to Rio and now I’m NYC on my birthday instead of my final destination. The flight status was changed 7 times. And AA said they would get my bag off but they did not and now I have to wait at JFK and hope it got rerouted here. And if it didn’t to hope it can on another flight before I hopefully actually get on a flight for Rio. Nobody has comped me for losing a day in Rio and for my hotel room. And this has been the worst flight exeperience or my life which unfortunately landed on my birthday. One I’ll remember in a sad and bad way. American Airlines refused to compensate me because I got my tickets via Kayak and I haven’t been able to find a number to complain to a Kayak agent whom I sure would say I had to contact American Airlines and nobody would help or take responsilvitu for this disaster."
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "Nice new aircraft - clean and comfortable. Entertainment selection and system is excellent. SFO airport is clean and efficient"
Cons: "I DO NOT like JFK airport. The signage is poor and it's difficult to figure out where you need to go. There aren't enough monitors and people in the airport are rude (including staff)"
Pros: "Great service great entertainment to make long flight bearable"
Cons: "great flight"
Pros: "Except for narrow seats, all fine"
Cons: "Narrow seats (we were in exit row, so plenty a leg room)"
Pros: "I was comfy on Philly to Venice flight, no one was sitting next to me"
Cons: "Staff at Philadelphia was rude when I asked for upgrade options the desk attendant told me " you should have booked 1st class from the beginning" in a rude and belittling demeanor."
Pros: "It was nice that plane wasn't full so I had an empty seat next to me. Crew was nice."
Cons: "AA trying to sell seat "upgrades" during online checking."
Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The new baggage rule limits you to two bags in business on international flights☹️"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Not sure why American would fly a plane across the country with no electrical outlets, entertainment options, or food beyond snacks."
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Pros: "Landing at destination"
Cons: "Plane, food,seat, entertainment and missing flight crew"
Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"
Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Pros: "Probably just about the only domestic flight where you still get food in steerage."
Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Cons: "It was delayed for about a half an hour. Other than that it was great"
Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."
Pros: "Lots of free movies."
Cons: "No free food."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Cons: "Pathetic airline service especially towards senior citizens.. One of the worst airline.. Poor baggage tracking system and Etihad staff lacks knowledge about their own airline.."
