Daily cleaning, installation of cabin HEPA filters on flights from Kalamazoo to Santiago
Chile has reopened its airport, non-resident foreigners will be allowed to enter Chile through Santiago Airport.
From November 23, when Santiago Airport begins to allow foreign travelers to enter, all travelers (of all ages) will have to present three documents when boarding:
•A completed “Affidavit of Travelers” electronic form (available here and also known as a Sanitary Passport) prepared less than 48 hours before boarding;
•Proof of a negative result from a PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to departure; and
•Proof of a health insurance policy that provides coverage for COVID-19 and related health issues during the traveler’s stay in Chile.
Foreign residents of Chile and holders of diplomatic/official passports are exempt from the PCR and health insurance.
Non-resident foreigners entering Chile who were in a high-risk country at any time within 14 days prior to their travel to Chile will have to complete a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine upon entering Chile, even with a negative PCR test.
Travelers in quarantine who undertake PCR test and receive a negative result within 72 hours do not need to remain in quarantine.
After December 7, non-resident foreigners entering Chile with the three documents described above will no longer have to complete a 14-day quarantine. They will instead be subject to a 14-day “Period of Vigilance for Travelers.” During this period, travelers will have to report daily their location and health condition to the Health Ministry through a system that will be implemented for this purpose. (This platform will be launched in the coming days.)
There are currently 334 active cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in CL and 178 deaths as of Dec 2 2020

Pros: "Short and sweet no problem"
Pros: "Seats were roomier and more padding."
Cons: "Couldn’t find the electronics plug. THe flight attendant locked one of 2 restrooms allowed to be accessed by the ~180-200 coach passengers so the bathroom line was extremely long."

Cons: "too cold!!"
Pros: "On time. No damage done."
Cons: "Not allow carry-ons. Big stewardess constantly bumped me on every pass up and down the aisle. Hassle recieving carry-on from gate. Extra small plane equated bumpy ride and poor cabin pressure."
Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Pros: "I like the seats in the plane."
Cons: "When we were bording, we had 5 bags and one very small handbag. And then the bording the lady who works there told us that we couldn't have more then 5 bags, because we are five people. She count that small bag as one. In addition, I realized that because we have different race, she did let us go."
Pros: "The price was cheaper than the other airlines. The flight itself was pretty smooth with very little turbulence."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, and the coffee was way too strong, and there was no Splenda, only Equal, which contrary to the flight attendant's knowledge is NOT "the same thing." United provides only 1 cheap sugary snack for the whole 5 hour flight. Couldn't get my phone to connect to the internet b/c I didn't have my United Mileage plan number written down or recorded anywhere, and I didn't have the card with me. To top it off, there was a screaming toddler in the next aisle over."
Cons: "It was so freezing we had down jackets on None of the sound on the screens worked. Disaster"
Pros: "the United app"
Cons: "the bag of mix"
Pros: "The staff was nice and professional"
Cons: "Why should we have to pay extra to have a little extra leg room? Aren't fares high enough? Also, I had a credit for directv but was charged again."
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "There was a storm coming but they were able to get us out and landed before the storm hit so that we arrived on time. The flight attendants were also great."
Cons: "The pilot was a bit rude about overhead baggage. I was one of the passengers that had to check my bag before boarding which was fine, but it seemed like I walked onto a stressful plane situation where the pilot's tone sounded irritated with the passengers who put their smaller bags overhead instead of underneath. If it's that big of an issue, then I would suggest getting the flight attendants to suggest helping passengers to put smaller bags underneath and if they don't want to so be it. It just made me uncomfortable because the pilot had to come over the speaker and say something about it multiple times."
Cons: "Took off very late due to maintenance working on a seat"
Cons: "Wish they had radio stations / music alongwith the free tv shows. wud have liked to listen to music and doze off. Then again i assume most passengers bring their own music."
Cons: "Honestly just didn't like that I couldn't pick my seat ahead of time, seemed kind of silly. I'm a big guy and need to not be in the middle seat."
Cons: "The staff member in the boarding gate was very unorganised she was announcing incorrectly two times , which make the passengers confused. Leg room inside the flight was to tight."
Pros: "The pilot was great. The smoothest take off and landing on the San Fran to Pittsburgh flight"
Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Every flight was late. I flew from Nashville to lax and both of my flights were late there and back"
Cons: "It was too warm on the plane, lost a bag and sat on the runway after leaving gate for about 30 mins"
Pros: "I was insulted by your staff. From Tech support to Face to Face Tech."
Cons: "I confirmed my flight. I had a 3 hour delay in CHI. Having a 90 minute drive and an hour flight. I decided to skip my first flight and just head to the connecter in CHI. My whole flight was canceled as a result. The front desk guy was smug and extremly rude. The Tech support and this representative offered 2 different "Facts" on what could be done. As a result I was forced to pay for a hotel and miss a day of work. All because I wanted to spend extra time with my family. I have nothing possitive to say about your product and as a business owner Im embarrassed for you."

Pros: "Everything good.."

Cons: "Narrow seats. No free meals. No free entertainment."
Cons: "At EWR there were a lot of travelers but 1 agent until another one showed to help travelers at the kiosks. You ask for help and everybody asked can't do the kiosk, you have to wait. I have a lot patience but when it's a bunch of us and it take 20 minutes to get someone to help you, it's wrong."
Pros: "Nice CSR people in AZO"
Pros: "Overall it was a great trip. We left a little late a both connections, but arrived on time so that's good."
Cons: "The only thing two things I'd change would be our plane arriving back the Kalamazoo on time. It wasn't even in Kalamazoo very long. The other thing I'd change would be having the two people helping with boarding speak more clearly on the intercom. I seriously couldn't understand much of what they were saying. Also, there's not much select for pop in your store."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy.. crumbs on seats debris on floors. Dirty arm rest and seat backs"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and tried to help the best they could"
Cons: "We were stuck on the plane for an hour with no a/c. I had my grandmother with me who uses a wheel chair and is diabetic. I am also 17 weeks pregnant. The entire experience was terrible. One lady on the plane ended up needing a paramedic because of sitting in the heat so long. All we got was a sorry."
Pros: "It canceled"
