Good have been much better being informed of the delayed.

Pros: "Crew was fine. Seat average."
Cons: "At meal time 200 people take their masks off to eat. And that’s acceptable. But in the middle of the night you wake people up because their masks slipped down off their noses! Ridiculous."

Pros: "Everything was excellent accept the entertainment."
Cons: "Entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly crew and delicious snacks. Comfortable chairs."
Cons: "Gate was change and no announcement was made. Could have miss might flight if I didn’t ask someone 30 minutes before boarding. Also could do a little better with the entertainment part. All the channels were in Portuguese. I understand it’s a Brazilian airline but you need to consider your foreign customers. Have some English Channels."
Pros: "All flights take off on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Food! Communication between airports. They were not prepared in Belem for late travelers from Fortaleza who needed to catch the flight at the last minute to Fort Lauderdale. I.e. security had already left and they had to call them back."

Cons: "Organization for embarking was a little messy."
Cons: "The arrogant employees at Gov. Valadares didnt tell me they were sending me to another airport making me miss my conection flight in the process. This information was disclosed only after I asked if the flight was on time because I had a international flight to catch at my final destination Sao Paulo - GRU. Instead of helping and apologizing for the hassle, the attendant said that I had to pay for my carry-on (that was 10kg) because I had another hand bag with my laptop in it. I said that I would not pay, and that Azul should return me money first for not delivering the service I purchase - which was the flight from Governador Valadares, MG to Sao Paulo, SP (with a quick stop in Belo Horizonte, MG). Instead they were making me miss my international flight, and besides not taking any responsibility for it, this woman is telling me that I had to pay for a carry on?!? I was mesmirized by the lack of sense of this flight attendant. After telling me that I was going to get in Sao Paulo at 9pm instead of 5pm, and that I would have to run to get a bus to another terminal and hopefully make it to my international flight that was at 10:20pm, she insisted I’d pay. I told her that if she could get me to my destination at 5pm maybe I wouldn’t mind paying, but since that wasn’t the case, and I’d have to run to try to catch another flight because of Azul Airlines, that she should really think about it and let it go, and let me go with my bag as a carry on. She gave me the ticket, and as I grabbed my bag and went towards the bus, she threatened me, saying that in Ipatinga and in Belo Horizonte (my first conection flight) they would not allow me on the plane with the carry on. Since the non-sense continued I just took her as a mentally disable person, and ignored her threat. A full bus and 2 vans headed to Ipatinga (100km away in a dangerous highway), packing the flight there, really making me think that this non-sense was just a way Azul Airlines figured out to save money in fuel. The flight was completely full, the AC not working properly, and with the heat and humidity people were smelly. It was absolutely awful. The flight attendants in Ipatinga (way nicer than the ones in Gov. Valadares), distributed water to the passengers that looked like they were about to faint, the ones sweating profusely, the elderly and the kids. By the way, the carry on bag was not an issue at the other airports. Once in Belo Horizonte I noticed that my original Azul flight from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo at 3:30pm as 1 hour and 15 minutes LATE. I run to the gate and explained what happened and after crying out loud was able to convince the Azul attendants to let me in on that flight so I wouldn’t miss my international flight. They made me wait until last minute but I cried: this is the flight I had a ticket for. It’s only fair you let me in! So they did. And I made my other flight. But not before I got upset, had a headache, stomach ache and felt demoralized by Azul staff."
Pros: "Azui's customer service is simply the BEST. That's the most awesome airline EVER."
Cons: "All was just PERFECT."
Pros: "Attentive service, new equipment. Very similar to flying JetBlue in its early years in the US."

Pros: "service is excellent"
Pros: "The staff was sonfriendly and nice. The snacks on the flight were delicious. We had beautiful views of Ipanema and copacabana as we flew in. We flew around Sugarloaf! It was amazing!"
Pros: "Perfeito e repetirei na primeira chance"

Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "No"
Cons: "The time"
Pros: "Everything I liked"
Cons: "1. Crew space up front with bright lights most of flight 2. Seats did not lay down on a flat bed. Longest length to fly and worse seats. I was better off with four seats on economy to lay down with my son."
Pros: "crew was wonderful but we sat on the runway the whole day and then they cancelled the flight"
Pros: "Es impresionante lo que ha desmejorado Avianca en su clase ejecutiva. Un vuelo de más de 5 horas y la silla no reclina sino solo un poco y no hay donde apoyar los pies. La comida estuvo mala."
Cons: "Tienen que mejorar su servicio en ejecutiva y si les toca usar ese avión mejorar la comodidad de las sillas."
Pros: "For a several hours of flying the seat we’re fine"

Cons: "Lady at check in didn't provide proper "tag" for stroller. No consideration while traveling with kids, I was accepted to board with the last group."

Cons: "It was delayed."
Cons: "Food was bad. Over cooked"
Pros: "Excelent service, flight attendants are very professional"
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour at Dulles. When we arrived in Bogota, at 9:40 we had time to catch the connecting flight to Montevideo which was scheduled to leave at 10:20pm.... but instead we stayed in the tarmac without moving for over 45 minutes. There were over 30 passengers that were to take that connecting flight, so the airline had plenty of reasons to wait for us. Instead the airline, AVIANCA, chose to leave all of us stranded in Bogota for 24 hours. We will have all type of problems because of this we had hotel reservations as well as car rental reservations that may be lost because we didn't showed up. By the way according to one of the passengers whose husband travelled on the same flight the day before. The same thing happened to him 1 day earlier."
Pros: "Everything !!!!"
Cons: "Seats were pretty uncomfortable on both flights for such a duration... The layover/transfer in Bogota was chaotic, and rushed. My luggage did not make it to the final destination, so I am here with none of my belongings :("

Cons: "No dislikes"
Pros: "They gave me another boarding pass what made me fell protected and watched"
Cons: "The food in the plane was good but I think it was too little"
Pros: "Overall this is one of the best airlines I often travel with. Their cost is economic compared to the other airlines flying and their customer service attention is one of the best. 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: "Flight on time"

Pros: "The food"
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."
Pros: "The trip in general was great!"
Cons: "Getting the bags too way too long ; after a long flight, will be nice to get out of the airport faster."

Pros: "Airbus was nice"
Cons: "Delayed by over 1 1/2 hours"
Pros: "Efficient, cheerful crew"
Cons: "Stop making seats smaller! The added revenue from 10 squeezed seats is not worth the discomfort it causes."

Cons: "Hassel about getting a visa to Cambodia. Refused to give me a boarding pass for 2nd and 3 rf leg of trip. Korean Air had no problems giving me yhe passes. Otter people had Delta boarding passes shivh they traded for Korran Aiir passes but the got better seats. Food was very good"

Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Great service all around. As comfortable as you can get for a domestic flight."

Pros: "I had the opportunity to send my carry on to the final destination. The flight was overbooked and there was no place to put carry on on the top place."
Cons: "I did not have the chance to choose my seat. I traveled sandwiched by two overweighted guys. I was holding my arms and was literally compressed by the gentlemen. Horrible experience. If I had the chance to choose my seat I would pick the corridor, and had a little less embarrassment and sweating."
Cons: "Delta staff is not too friendly"
Pros: "Seating"
Cons: "The re route to MSP... Seven hour flight time for a two and half hour flight..."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and attentative."
Cons: "The amount of delays causing us to miss our connection and be stuck in another city for a night before getting to our destination the next day(hopefully)."
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "There was a threat in the airport which caused the closure of one terminal. It happened to be the one from which this flight was due to depart. The crew was calm and able to get everyone on board with a minimum delay, considering the circumstances. The flight crew made up some time in the air and we were able to land less than 30 minutes after our original ETA. Well done, Delta."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "People"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "I had to take a United flight last week for a short flight and once again I was reminded why I ALWAYS fly Delta if at all possible. United crew hid in the galley the whole trip wit lititle to no interaction with passengers. My flight today on Delta was great; food really excellent (Chicken Tika) and the crew was great as usual. Delta remains the best."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Friendly service."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."
Cons: "We couldn't hear the overhead announcements at all. Seated right next to the turbine intake on the wing made the amount of ambient noise especially high, so all the in-flight announcements were pretty much unintelligible."
Pros: "Good seat, easy on and off, everything went a little ahead of schedule and smooth"
Pros: "I was able to pick my own flight online easily."
Cons: "Lack of same day, 1 connection, first class seats. Had to fly out the next day because only middle seats left. Frustrating because I paid for first class and had no good choices for my departure day of choice."
Pros: "The crew were AMAZING and made the flight so much better. Boarding was easy. I also love that the pilot acknowledged the Service men and women on our flight."
Cons: "The older plan didn't have some of the perks that I expected from Comfort +... No conformed headrest, no USB plugs... I paid extra for Comfort + and expected some of these things."
Pros: "Great plane"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "Upgrading to First Class made it worthwhile."
Cons: "As a minority provider of service at BWI, the gate was the furthest from the entry. Gate security is almost always a source of delay here."
Pros: "After the extremely long wait to check bags which made us miss the flight, the date crew got us in another flight...it wasn't direct which is what I paid for, but they did get us out, but i missed an interview because of the lack of crew and a missing luggage."
Cons: "Checking a bag, delta did not have enough crew to get everyone thru to their flights. We waited for 80 minutes inline to check a bag. Then we ran to the gate inky to find the gate was closed less than 2 minutes before we arrived. At least 20 others also missed the plane because of the lack of crew and long lines checking bags. It was frustrating, irritating, uncaring crew checking in, and a bit rude. Then on of my checked luggage was lost enroute - which made getting off the flights even later which made me miss a meeting that I was scheduled to be at. All because you didn't have the crew needed to check in."
Pros: "...the fact that they got us on the plane and back to GRR even though the connecting flight from BWI was delayed and there was little time to make that last flight out of DTW..."
Pros: "I haven't traveled by air for a number of years, it had gotten to be so crazy at checkin. Well imagine my surprise when I was checked in within five minutes of arriving at the airport. KAYAK took care of everything. All the flights were on time, I received email updates along the way and I am so happy I'm planning my next trip already."
Cons: "Even the babies in the waiting area were quiet on the flight, which leaves nothing for me to complain about at all."

Cons: "A better movie and the check in was grueling. They did not have enough staff and one person spent 30 minutes helping someone repack at the check-in desk while we all waited. Pretty unacceptable."

Pros: "It was an old plane, no WiFi!!! There is was an hour and half delay which no one made it clear as to why ."
Cons: "the manager at the counter at IAD insisted make the connection in Panama City! Of course after landing in Panama City I missed the connection. Had to stay at a hotel and I purchased business class ticket but they don’t have business class seats available on the next flight and book me on economy"
Pros: "Súper crew!"
Cons: "Only one movie for a flight of 4.5 hours. The food tasted like frozen TV dinners."
Cons: "Wider seats and aisle"
Cons: "More options in movies"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "The crew was wonderfully attentive. My only complaint is the narrow ley room."
Pros: "Crew was not aware of the drunken state of the 2 passengers sitting next to me . The 2 passengers got on the flight each with 2 beers . They finished it even before the flight took off . They then requested more drinks from the crew which they were given. I personally told one of the crew not to ser"

Pros: "Comfort and staff on board"
Cons: "Overall good"
Cons: "Amazing"
Cons: "I had to call their reservation center three times in order to receive an electronic ticket. The last call at the checkin counter. I finally receive it 1 hr before ETD."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything, I'll never use them or recommend them to anyone, worst ever!!"
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: "New fleet, personal entertainment, food and drinks, carry on and one suitcase all included. Connection in Panama is smooth. Better than American, Delta and United for sure."
Cons: "The check in process at Washington Dulles was painfully slow. It seems that every passenger had special needs and none were checked in quickly."
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: "Excellent service"
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"
Pros: "Everything was great good service"
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"
Cons: "No explanation was given"
Cons: "Apparently is high season and therefore they refused to take my extra luggage that I was willing to pay. I was told to throw my luggage away. I don't live in the US, thankfully my niece does and she was able to take the luggage home. Now I don't know when I'll get my stuff"
Cons: "The movies were boring"
Pros: "everything was great :)"
Cons: "none,"
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."
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: "A great overall experience. I liked that there was a huge selection of entertainment that played on the back of each seat. The lasagna was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seat was not as comfortable as other airlines I've used!"
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: "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: "I needed to change my ticket and Kayak had another agency issue the ticket. Kayak does not change tickets and the third party and the airline said only Kayak could make the change. Having to purchase a whole new ticket from the airline, save the money and frustration and avoid Kayak and just book directly with the airline. The ticket would have and should have been changed with no fees. $325 lesson learned."
Pros: "No Crew."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, never went."
Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"
Pros: "Fast flight.. no hassles at all"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Easy access to entertainment via my phone"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "They always on time"
Cons: "suitcase came in torn, cut and did not want to compesate"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Everithing else"
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: "I missed my flight because a connecting flight I booked with you all got canceled would I be able to get a refund or claim back"
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: "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: "Comfortalble seats with entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"
Cons: "Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about."
Pros: "El vuelo salió a tiempo"
Cons: "Me cobraron por el equipaje pese a que en la página decía que era gratis 1 maleta. Apenas Un sandwich incomible para un vuelo internacional Nos tuvieron dentro el avión 35 minutos después de aterrizar en Santiago por que el bus que lleva a la manga no llegaba. Después tardaron 1.30 hrs en poner maletas en la banda. Total 2 horas para salir del aereopuerto."
Pros: "You made it possible to change my flight to one earlier"
Cons: "The food"
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."
Cons: "Apparently you need to be at the airport 2hrs before your flight leaves otherwise you cant print your ticket and have to wait in a 1-2hr line to have them tell you you have now missed your flight and charge you $30USD to change to another flight. When it only takes literally 3min to get through security and to the gates. not sure why they couldn't give us our tickets when we were then an hr early. Then they said we were at gate 5. We went and waited there. About 20min before departure we noticed the flight info had changed and wasnt ours. No announcement. Nothing. We had to run upstairs to our new gate and barely made that flight. Extremely dissatisfied with customer service and lack of communication. Basically a company looking to get money wherever they can at the expense of foreign travelers."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."
Cons: "The airport @ Madrid Barajas"
Pros: "the crew"
Cons: "seats are the worst I had in 40 years of flying. Very narrow, hard and uncomfortable seats. The leg space was fine, but the seats are terrible. I flew inside Peru with Latam and they were great. I doubt I will use Latam for another international flight."
Pros: "The comfort of the new Sears at economy-a class"
Pros: "The airline and travel agency never informed me that this flight was cancelled. I almost got stuck at JFK."
Cons: "Everything about the airline and the travel agency since they never took the time to inform me that it was cancelled."
Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."
Pros: "Boarding and ticketing staff were helpful in guiding us through the process of traveling with a dog."
Cons: "I appreciated that there were two meals but would have appreciated more water. And a gluten free option for breakfast would have been great."
Pros: "Courteous, gracious service; efficient and comfortable flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "Pretty much everything other than the fact we had to return to Santiago two hours into the flight for mechanical issues. On the upside, they had a plane and crew ready to go when we returned to Santiago"
Cons: "The turn around resulting Ina five hour delay"
Pros: "Great flight and friendly staff"
Pros: "The plane 787- 8 is new and realy comfortable"
Cons: "Too much bread at dinner The flight was delayed more than 15 minutes"
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: "The crew were very nice and friendly."
Cons: "It was a little slow to get on and get off the airplane."
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."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and confusing, no where to sit at gate."
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: "Lack of maintanance the pilot had to turn around in the runway because the plain had no sufficent gas. Maintanance should be constant not reqctive of the situation"
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very friendly and polite. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I don't like that you have to pay for a cup of coffee. I understand that for a sandwich or a muffin, but a coffee... come on dude."
Pros: "Punctual, clean, courteous , good entertainment, steel cutlery."
Pros: "Technology Leg room"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. We never made it to the last flight because they cancelled our flight home, stranding us (myself, husband and 2 small children) in Ecuador. I have traveled extensively for almost 20 years and have NEVER dealt with such a terrible company with such shady employees. It was unbelievable and we aren't the only ones. Just take a peek at their social media accounts. They don't allow reviews anymore but there is a community of people who have been stranded in South America by LATAM and the link is easily found. They seem to have a ploy to try and get people to buy extra tickets. Seriously a scam. Stay away!"
Pros: "I have bought a ticket from To Aeroparque Jorge Newvery; and they cancelled the flight and sent me to Ezeiza without prior inform, concent and without any compensation."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "They lost my bag, which I didn't get back until my return trip home. I planned a week long hiking expedition and LATAM lost my hiking pack. I had to then rent all my gear. I was very very disappointed in their ability to keep track of my checked bag. When I arrived at my destination they had no idea where my bag was. It took days for anyone to contact me about if my pack was found or not. I will be avoiding this airline from now on if possible."
Pros: "Helpful, friendly service from LATAM employees. On-time flights."
Pros: "The big windows of the plane and the black tinted glasses are great, the service was great and the food very tasty. The seats are a bit narrower than the other planes but they are comfortable"
Cons: "The seats are a bit narrow"
Pros: "Buena aerolínea salidas y llegadas en tiempo. Personal amable. Sin problema alguno."
Pros: "Service was prompt, smooth boarding and the aircraft was modern. there was an entertainment option if you had downloaded their app before the flight - I hadn't downloaded it, so can't comment on the entertainment. Other than that - all in all great service."
Cons: "Snacks were crackers and 2 sweet biscuits. Would have been nice to have had something a little more savoury, but this is realistically already more than I would expect from European carriers, so can't complain."
Pros: "The flight was great. In flight entertainment through idevice"
Cons: "To short connection"
Pros: "The ride was good, the view of the Andes was great"
Cons: "To my knowledge, the passengers were not told that the plane would be delayed for another 2 hours because they had to get a new plane - 30 mins after the flight was supposed to board. It was ridiculous, then it took 15 mins for us to be able to get out the plane after we landed in Santiago. Overall, boarding was very disorganized and ruined my general schedule after arrival into the country."
Pros: "It was amazinggg! Will travel again"
Cons: "Liked everything"
