Pros: "Check in counter, in flight entertainment and food were good, alcohol included."
Cons: "to join the passengers for the next day flight in order to have a full plane. All other flights took off despite weather delays. On top of missing 2 work days because of their business decisions, everyone beginning their journey from Bogotá were considered "locals", thus creating a very tense situation with employees with lots of arguing and unprofessional behavior. Finally they agreed to accommodate everyone at the hotel, getting there after 7pm. 2 full days lost! Why do they offer flight frequency if they won't honor it? People make plans around their purchase, but they just don't give a damn. Will do my best to avoid this airline in the future and will not recommend it to anyone."

Because of her misleading, out luggage was left in Lima and we landed in Cusco without our luggage. We are still awaiting to see where our luggage is."

Their passports, credit cards and money were all stolen during this 4 day period."

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."
Pros: "Staff and service was great"
Cons: "My flight to Lima was delayed therefore I would miss the connecting flight to LAX. I learned of the delay by overhearing a conversation the employee was having with another passenger. No announcement was made, no options were presented to help the passengers with connection find a solution until we started demanding a solution. This ordeal started at 9pm and we did not make it out of the airport till 1:50am to a hotel for a 6am pickup back to the airport to start the process all over again."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Pros: "New plane .confort. Reliable company.good prices."
Cons: "Need to check size and weight of the carry on luggage at the register counter in the airport and not before boarding. Create confusion, lost of time. Boarding process is messy. Indications given to board by group number but it is not enforced and it is a real mess .food does not compare well with other companies.lunch is acceptable but snack(sandwich)and light supper are really awfull.entertainment system not a big choice of moovies"

Pros: "Smooth ride after boarding, easy to find seats, not an issue"
Cons: "No snacks or anything - boarding took long, they had the passengers line up and then after 15 mins tell us to sit for 15 mins because of something with the plane. I requested a seat but was placed in another seat in a different row and number."
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."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed more than three hours and we received minimal communication about what was going on. Initially it was only delayed 30 minutes, then we were told an hour, then one more hour, then one more hour. The entire time we sat in a pre-boarding area with no food, water, wifi, or electrical outlets. We ended up missing one of our tours in Buenos Aires (which we had already paid for) due to the delay. Extremely disappointing after having otherwise positive experiences with LAN."
Pros: "Excellent service. Short flight, arriving in time."
Pros: "Nice people"
Pros: "Service by the flight attendants."
Pros: "Bon Bon"
Cons: "Ham Sandwich, need other vegetarian option, please."
