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."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seats"
Pros: "When we arrived at airport to check in there was no internet and only people who had checked in much earlier on their phones could go to the boarding area. A large number of people had to wait for "somebody" to write (!) boarding passes. All of this was quite a mess and took a long time."
Cons: "Communication was lacking..."
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."
Cons: "Full hour to drop our bags at ticketing. Otherwise great."
Cons: "More room legs needed."
Cons: "They changed our boarding gate three times"
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: "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: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food please"
Cons: "Overall a good experience."
Pros: "Flight from LAX to Lima good enough. Flight from Lima to Buenos Aires very bad. Old plane food sucked and entertainment non existent."
Cons: "My baggage was lost"
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"
Cons: "food was terrible, I was traveling with my 3 year old son and I was never offered a meal for kids, if there's one. seats are always uncomfortable;/"
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."
Pros: "La tripulación muy atenta"
Cons: "La comida"
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."
Cons: "We were traveling with 2 children. Seats assigned: rows 15, 18, 32, and 38. Nobody in the crew (from the desk to the plane) was able to solve the problem. We solved it swapping seats with other passengers. We were 4 with 3 carry-on bags. The person who was in charge was very rude. They don't allow us to carry any of them in the cabin and 1 arrived broken. I had no problems like this before, With full flights like this is normal to have to send some luggage that you expect in the cabin to the hold, but in this case the crew was very unclear and rude. The food: it was a short flight and they give us our snack just seconds before the landing. Finally, they lost 1 of our bags. Waiting to see if it appears."
Pros: "Flight was on time, we left early and arrived early! Flight attendants were very kind."
Cons: "Seats very small. And I’m only size 33!"
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: "It was on time. The staff was efficient and courteous . Very hospitable."
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"
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: "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."
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: "Todo funcionó de acuerdo a lo planificado."
Pros: "What a nice surprise to be able to stretch out after a multi-leg international trip!"
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: "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: "Nice new 787 service was very good They don't make you stay in your seat. You can get up and walk around"
Pros: "Got a snack box and some drinks which was good, smooth ride back- nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Boarding took a minute to start, but it wasn't too bad"
Pros: "It was a new plane and the service was also good"
Pros: "Great flight, smooth, good snacks"
Cons: "Wish we didn't have to use a bus to deplane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed without explanation. We finally reached Salta and then returned due to weather and were kept waiting in a room for hours while LAN attendants stood around conferring. Got there 20 hours later...on a different airline!"
