Cons: "Check in at Dulles was chaos, even though we had completed online check in and just needed to do our luggage drop. I am pregnant and was carrying a 2 y/o toddler and had no preferential/priority treatment. Though we arrived 2+ hours before our departure, we only just made our flight. Ground crew were unfamiliar with Brazilian laws on entry for citizens with expired passports. Our bags never left DC and we received them over 72 hours later in Sao Paulo, after much confusion. We were not offered any means of compensation for this inconvenience."

Pros: "Everything !!!!"

They always have food and drinks available to people and obviously have a priority when it comes to children. Their seats in economy are somewhat spacious and international flights always have good entertainment with their touch screen. You can listen to music, watch movies and even TV shows without any extra cost."

Pros: "Nice Avianca flight crews and ground crews on all three flights. All flights on time. All seats had good leg room. Soft landings."
Cons: "I didn't know where I should go after Customs in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I was connecting to a domestic flight to Goiania, Brazil, so I needed to drop off my checked bag somewhere to be sent to the plane's cargo. I went to the check-in desk for Avianca, and then they pointed me to the nearby bag drop-off area, which had a 45-minute line. The time wasn't too important for me in that I made it to boarding 25 minutes before the flight--the part that would have been better would be to have on the itinerary that I go to the Avianca check-in/bag drop-off area in Terminal 2 after Customs."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "The second flight (Bogotá to Rio de Janeiro) was delayed about 3 hours. The crew mainly spoke Spanish and would not say what was going on unless you asked them. Food was okay and the Airline was completely unorganized. You can only pick your seat 24 hours prior your flight! Price is good but that's about it!"

Pros: "To do the right maintenance to the plane because I couldn't use the earphones. The plug of the previous earphones was broken and a piece of it was inside the hole."
Cons: "Lack of supervision, because I had: (i) long delays to receive my bags with not explanation at the begining. Later on the "supervisor" told us that some of the bags were left on the road and we had to wait until a belt was available and (ii) in the maintenance of the plane in regards with the seat equipment."

Cons: "There was a large couple that boarded the plane at the last moment, the flight attendant escorted them to their seats which was right next to me. I got up so they could sit down and they covered half of my seat. The flight attendant saw this but still told me to sit back down. I tried to explain to him that the lady was sitting on top of my seatbelt and halfway on my seat. I was told again to sit down. Trying not to cause a problem I just tried to sit down. My entire right side was in Constant contact with her entire left side of her body. Once we got started taxing the flight attendant walk by I stopped him and explain to him there's no way I could do the entire flight sitting like this. Luckily there was an extra seat that he was able to move me too. My issue is I do not understand how this was not prevented so that it would not be an issue. There were plenty of seats available they could have told her and her husband who were both very large they had to buy two seats. Or there was business-class seats available that they could've been put in."

Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice based on the situations beyond their control."

Cons: "Tv"

Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."

Pros: "I had a whole row to myself and was able to sleep"
Cons: "No movie selection, no blankets."

Pros: "That I landed safely"
Cons: "1st class was horrible."

Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"

Cons: "Seeing as I’m still waiting for my flight, more than five hours later I am not inclined to rank it highly. This airport is an embarrassment and I will try my best to never fly Delta again. Weather is no excuse for this."

Cons: "Same issue... there were no snakes on the plane :-/"

Cons: "Tried to get an upgrade at the gate and they said our ticket wouldn't allow it."

Pros: "Flight attendants and cookies. That's it."
Cons: "We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Cons: "There delay"

Pros: "For a short-haul flight on a small CRJ, it was the most pleasing and comfortable flight. No delays and everyone was pleasant from ground staff to flight crew."

Pros: "The crews were very friendly and everything went as planned. It was a nice flight."

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the food selection was surprising delicious. The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "The leg room was much less than the last time I flew Virgin (booked via Delta) and made for an uncomfortable trip. Could not sleep as a result. If you're tall like me you'll need to book a higher seating category."

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"

Cons: "paying extra for leg room and checked bags"

Pros: "The cabin crew serving the main cabin were exceptional. They were efficient, kind and FUN. We were an hour late leaving and 2/3 of the plane was worried about tight connections. They handled it with grace giving each person their departing gate and asking everyone to let a gentleman off with a 10 minute connection. They made the flight memorably enjoyable."
Cons: "Being an hour late isn't ideal and I understand that it wasn't their fault (the plane was late arriving into Denver. Those things happen. They still goto people to Detroit in time to make connections--barely."

Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "Súper crew!"
Cons: "Only one movie for a flight of 4.5 hours. The food tasted like frozen TV dinners."

Cons: "Seat did not recline"

Cons: "Ordered a vegetarian meal and did not receive if"

Cons: "No private enterteinment"

Pros: "I had to cancel the flight for family reasons, and even if I pay the cancellation fee, Copa didn’t give me the money back. I explain that it was a personal/family type of emergency, but they did not care at all."
Cons: "I had to cancel the flight for family reasons, and even if I pay the cancellation fee, Copa didn’t give me the money back. I explain that it was a personal/family type of emergency, but they did not care at all."

Pros: "Provided food- even on short trip from Panama City to Bogotá."

Pros: "The aircraft was a new 737-800 series with an entertainment center, the meal was decent and the crew pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Copa does not permit one to make a seat selection at the time of booking - the seats assigned to us upon checking werenot together and in the back of the plane. As Silver customer with United Airlines I would hope for a better choice or what then is the value of the Star Alliance? I likely won’t fly withCopa again. Also, they did not offer hot tea as a beverage selection."

Pros: "fast check-in at Washington pick up luggage at final destination (Lima) clean planes"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "It was my first time using Copa, I travel often, I was surprise by the friendliness of the crew, the entertainment was great,"

Pros: "Boarding wa son time and smooth"
Cons: "The food was low quality and qith not taste, both flights were really bad. Alao entertainment was poor"

Pros: "My first time flying with Copa and I really enjoyed it. The staff was kind, the on flight meal was great and I really liked the entertainment device for each person on the back of the chairs."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "The people were friendly and professional. Everything was as expected. The ticket cost was about 200.00 more dollars than the other discount carriers but they did not include any baggage. When I compared apples to apples and looked at the 2 bags I wanted to check the price was within 20 dollars ant the Copa flight was at a better time. The Copa flights had food service and the meal was good, chicken and pasta. Would it have been worth 10.00 at the airport? Yes it would have been. 1 meal each way would more than make up the difference. All in all the flight worked out to be at a better time with friendlier service and an equal or better value for my total cost. The flights were on time. Nicely done."

Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very nice and professional. Loved the fresh fruit for breakfast."
Cons: "The seats were not very comfortable for business class. I liked the space and width but the seat and headrest were very hard. And the bathroom in business section was the smalllest ever on an international flight."

Pros: "technology and movie/entertainment selection. plus drinks were included"

Cons: "The food choices are limited foe vegans."

Pros: "I liked everything"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "After reporting that things were stolen...Copa deny my claimed."

Pros: "It was nice to be able to watch movies - but the selection of good movies was limited."
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."

Pros: "The short stops"
Cons: "Delay en our flight"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats: on one leg (Panama to Mexico City) the seats are just like in Economy class, only a wider and more legg-room. But no FOOT REST, which is essential in a long flight. Laniding in Mexico was via a staircase and a bus (no fault of Copa). Reservation via BOOKING turned out to be a problem (could not make changes in flights). I had to do it via "influence", a pain in the neck."

Pros: "Food was awesome, attendants were pretty nice, and it was a great first international flight experience."
Cons: "I was a little cramped on the plane."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful and friendly."

Cons: "seats and plane were old. Business class seats need an upgrade badly. They should discount the tickets if we're made to fly in 25 year old seats. Business class service was rushed. It was like the goal was to get your items up and collected early so the attendant could disappear for the remainder of the flight."

Pros: "Lisa Gilliard attended to us in business class. She was efficient, professional and top notch. Service was excellent under her leadership."

Pros: "I love the attendance of the host. The flight was smooth. People were friendly with me. The host spoke good English language, I almost missed my flight but I was helped to get on flight."
Cons: "The seat was quite uncomfortable. I could not sleep properly had a bit of neck pain."

Cons: "No hubo buen entretenimiento ni alternativas y en el viaje de vuelta faltó el café en un viaje de cuatro horas y cuarenta minuto"

Pros: "the woman at the recheck counter for united Joanne ...helped me to get on an earlier flight and saved me an 8 hour layover. The woman is an angel......."

Cons: "The seat was not as comfortable as other airlines I've used!"

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."

Pros: "Attentive crew members."

Pros: "Give out head phones and the food is not bad"
Cons: "Plane was late and took too long to board so that when we we t to take off we had lost our spot then waited for 3 hours to get going, about 90% of the passengers had a connecting flight which they obviously missed and then they blamed the weather. Sent us to a hotel in a ridiculously disorganized fashion for which they had 3 hours plus flight time to prepare for. New boarding passes were a mess and had to wait a long time to get mine printed cause they forgot to. In the morning in order to save money they sent us on a stupid early bus so that half of us could be sent back to the airport, so that meant we missed breakfast and the 2 hours plus of sleep."

Cons: "I was unable to travel with three suitcases, despite the fact that I was willing to pay for the third bag. I had to put some of my stuff in another bag and was charged overweight. What infuriates me is the fact that at no point of the web check in process I was warned about this. No warning, no email, nothing. I am never using Copa Airlines again and I am warning everyone I know not to use this third-rate airline ever!"

Pros: "A fly attendant try to make up for me for forgetting our lunch."
Cons: "the disorganization of the other costumers who were changing seats almost make me lose my connection. The crew did not serve our lunch."

Pros: "I loved the food and the flight attendants' customer service. It was awesome and they were very nice."
Cons: "That I almost was left without food because the flight attendant passed by me because I was sleeping . Although it my fault because it's not fair to wake a passages up. But for food I think it is fair."

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 5 hours"

Pros: "Everyone was really helpful"

Cons: "We were delayed for a long time without much information given. I arrived 18 hours late to my destination and missed many important appointments."

Pros: "El entretenimiento y la atención de la tripulación"
Cons: "El abordaje debería hacerse de atrás hacia adelante, ya que es incómodo para los que estamos en lis asientos delanteros del pasillo cuando pasan los viajeros con carteras o maletas grandes También me gustaría que este cuestionario fuera en español"

Pros: "Plane was very new and clean. Love the individual TV units on the back of chairs"

Pros: "they had a vegetarian meal for me :)"

Cons: "they don;t let her board they saying ticket is not confirm and we have itnerery with all confirmation and we lives in belize from belize to cancun in bus 8 hours .so overall very unconvinence"

Pros: "Their efficiency and courtesy. And they handled our travelling with two cats with real professionalism."
Cons: "All was good!"

Pros: "Pontualidade."
Cons: "Nada a reparar."

Pros: "El vuelo fue a tiempo y sobretodo muy facil de obtener el pasabordo. La gente muy amable y eficiente. Gracias!!! The fly was on-time, I got the boarding pass easy and fast, stuff was Wonderful!! Thanks"
Cons: "At this time all worked perfect for me the way how it is."

Pros: "Easy check in, and kindly personnal"
Cons: "Maybe consider some upgrades when its possible"

Pros: "The pilots were polite and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Could provide a menu card, like every other airline. Instead of listing every single option to everyone on the plane. And maybe use bigger cups that hold more than 3-4 ounces?? Especially when the airport takes away peoples liquids (see below). Ridiculous. Not necessarily with flight, more with Lima airport “security” - they took away ALL bottled liquids more than 3 oz. AT THE GATE. Even bottled water purchased 20 feet from the gate. And they couldn’t explain why. Just got a bunch of shrugs. Why take sealed water purchased at their own airport away before an international 8+ hour flight???"

Cons: "suitcase came in torn, cut and did not want to compesate"

Pros: "Quick comfortable trip."
Cons: "Some food or drinks"

Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Pros: "The crew was amazing in business class - very friendly and helpful. Best flight I've ever been on!!"
Cons: "There was no wifi on the plane but I know LATAM is working on getting that. Other than that, it was perfect."

Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."
Cons: "long long line at check in... long line at the TSA late getting to the gate. Flight left an hour late did not meet my connecting fight no help in SP no ground crew for directions. long long line at customs then long line to rebook flight had a 7 hour layover in SP before Rio."

Cons: "Venden asientos pero sus sistema de la aplicación es pésimo no me dejaba cargar el pago. Para el embarque de miami a lima no había buen orden"

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Smooth flight, arrived a bit early"
Cons: "There was one crew member who was VERY rude to me at the end of the flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"

Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"

Pros: "Good service and food. Though food tray was small. not very many choices. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process in Lima was chaotic. I was to continue on the same plane from Miami and Lima to Buenos Aires, however, nobody mentioned I could stay on the same aircraft, so they made me go off the plane out the arriving area hall, again through security, which was a hassle, almost forgot my wrist watch..... all that to end up in the same gate to board the same plane. a total waste of time and energy...."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."

Pros: "Excellent boarding, something that all the airlines should do: starting boarding from the back of the plain. Boarding is much faster."

Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."

Pros: "Aircraft condition, crew professionalism"
Cons: "Boarding process in Lima airport"

Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"

Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."

Cons: "Impossibly short connection time to get across the whole airport"

Pros: "."
Cons: "Boarding started 30’ late. Boarding itself was awful, two Lin’s of people where it was supposed to be one."

Cons: "They lost my bags"

Pros: "Everything was ok except the food. read the other side and do something about it."
Cons: "the food was horrible and cold and with a bad taste. the food must be hot. change it. Copa airline is better"

Cons: "They didnt check my bag from DCA to BOG, so I had to check out my bag in MIA and then run to check in the next flack. I couldnt. They gave me a seat in another flight from another company, so it was OK."

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours Making us be late for our connection. We made it to the flight but it was a real hassle."

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "That there was a friend of the staff seated in seat 7 aile and the steward from first class kept on asking her if she wanted something to drink he didn't ask anyone else She asked for something and they brought her what looked like a cell phone in a blue case She was treated way better than all the other passengers and I just thought why can't we all be treated the same way"

Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."

Cons: "No complimentary beverage service I.e. Water or food. On a three hour flight, that is totally unacceptable."

Pros: "The crew was nice, the food tasted great, and they had a variety of movies to watch!"
Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."

Pros: "Kindness of the crew"

Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"

Pros: "Not much since not only were we screened by the airport authorities but also by Latam. I purchased some water after security but had to leave it since they would not allow it on the plane. Had they let us know about this sooner I could have saved money."
Cons: "The Latam personnel who searched our bags prior to boarding put on gloves which I though was very good. The bad part was that I saw 2 members of the search party sneeze into the gloves and touch their noses without changing gloves. How disgusting!!! Never Latam again! I would rather pay a few dollars more and not put up with this health violation."

Pros: "Everything. The while team was friendly, from check in on the ground all the way into the air."

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

Pros: "They took every measure to make sure me and my family had the most comfortable flight possible. I will be sure to fly LatAm again. Thank you so much!"

Pros: "The friendliness and efficiency of the flight attendants was incredible!"
Cons: "I cannot think of antthing bad!"

Cons: "Company was not able to understand situation and did not offer solution. I lost my money"

Pros: "The planes were new and immaculate, seats were comfortable, we were welcomed by the flight crew upon embarking, and there was a wonderful selection of entertainment."
Cons: "The food selection was rather light, especially for those with celiac issues and or vegetarian."

Pros: "Comfortable seats on plane, good food. Good selection of in flight movies and television shows."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been a bit more organized, but it is a small airport and the general line moved quickly."

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."

Pros: "This was my first time flying on LATAM and I will definitely use them again. Service and crew was very good."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like about the plane was my seat. I'm a small guy and I felt the seat was a bit tight."

Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"

Pros: "Latam accomadated my family when we missed our flight by 24 hours because of the computer malfunction of Delta Airlines so that was super awesome of them."

Pros: "Space between seats"

Cons: "It was cancelled with little explanation from the airlines or airport. And with little help afterwards."

Pros: "They have most of the boxes checked, but none of it matters if your knees are getting crushed, and then the person in front of you puts the seat back and nearly breaks them."
Cons: "The first leg of the flight, from DC to Lima, was fine. But from Lima to Cuzco, I was in agony. My knees were already tightly pressed to the seat in front of me when I sat down, and as soon as the man in front of me put his chair back, it folded my legs down and to the side in an exceptionally painful way. I got to sit like that for hours. The man next to me was also tall, so he got to experience the same kind of pain when the woman in front of him put her chair back. I am going to skip that leg on the way back and just fly out of Lima."

Cons: "Include the luggage into the price of the ticket, Brazilian airliners often charge luggage separately."

Pros: "The crew was realy nice"

Pros: "Did us a favor and made check in in the counter"
Cons: "Food was pretty basic....no entertainment whatsoever kids were desperate"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."

Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."

Pros: "Nice new plane."

Cons: "I had two USB chargers at my seat, but neither worked :("

Pros: "Great comfortable seats."

Pros: "The space between sits in the airplane"
Cons: "The timing"

Pros: "Poco"
Cons: "Me dieron la última fila, los asientos no se reclinaban y al lado una mujer con niños que gritaron todo el viaje, los auxiliares de vuelo no hicieron nada."

Cons: "The trip was awesome, Rio is a wonderful city, extremely hot but a beautiful city"

Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."

Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"

Pros: "Thanks"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "The check in and punctuality of boarding, take off and arrival was excellent. The flight was enjoyable. I would travel again."
Cons: "I didn’t like the snacks."

Pros: "Their boarding is more orderly than many Brazilian airlines."
Cons: "check in was difficult. Their app is terrible - check in was not allowed.. The website is worse - it couldn't link my locator number to my account. And the gate check in had an absurdly small number of kiosks and no one to help the confused passengers. Boarding was done on time and they kept the door open for 20 minutes after take off time with no announced reason for the delay."

Cons: "It was very hot on the plane. Very little air conditioning."

Cons: "Extremely cramped. They ran out of certain drinks. Confusing boarding."

Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"

Pros: "Equipe atenciosa Sistema de entreterimento funcionou bem. Comida boa."

Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bastante bien"
Cons: "casi perdemos el vuelo porque no nos podian despachar las valijas, nadie hablaba ingles o español para que nos podemos hacer entender y terminamos pagando el doble por despachar el equipaje"

Pros: "el vuelo estuvo bien"
Cons: "la atencion del personal en tierra me parecio deficiente"

Cons: "The width of the seats were too small."

Pros: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"

Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "All ok"

Pros: "Didn’t have to pay more for the exit row!!!"

Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."

Cons: "Incluir español en la comunicación en el avion"

Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"

Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"

Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."

Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"

Pros: "legroom, boarding process."

Pros: "On time and the flight wasn't cancled like their partner airline."

Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled"

Pros: "The crew was very professional. Pilots made the flight really smooth."
Cons: "WiFi didn't exist on board (even being that they advertised it on every place they could)"

Pros: "Second leg seats were roomy even though I was not in comfort rows, flight left on time on the second leg, flight attendants were curteous on both flights,check-in staff also curteous on both airports. The price was right."
