Very old airplane! Feels durty!
Pros: "I am loving the fact how the crew are disembarking and embarking passengers. So far better than many big companies out there in North America"
Cons: "It took 1.5 hours to leave the tarmac in NYC. We just sat there with little communication."
Pros: "Good entertainment on board and the crew was fairly attentive, but not as attentive as on other airlines."
Cons: "Food was not great, but at least it was edible. Thought the crew could have also asked about refills more often."
Pros: "Nothing much, really."
Cons: "Baggage handling. They lost one of my baggages and are giving me a hard time to get a refund."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Check in process was a nightmare. Staff was rude and unhelpful. Flight was delayed and staff mis-informed."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "No leg room even for the seats we paid extra"
Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Service and great crew"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "latam airlines only wants your money, if you miss your flight they will book your seat to someone else, you will be stranded, and they will not reschedule or refund. i now live in the airpot and I sold my car for this and I just want to die now"
Cons: "less ignorant/greedy management"
Pros: "Great crew and competent pilots! We arrived safe and on time - always a big plus"
Cons: "Seats, as in so many planes, were cramped and small for larger people."
Pros: "I LIKE EVERYTHING ON THE FLIGHT"

Cons: "It was nasty, disordered. Bad experience"
Pros: "crew, punctuality, comfort"
Cons: "no lounge. $20 coupon toward meal at mediocre airport restaurant does not cut it. very laborious boarding process very long wait for 'priority' baggage entertainment system not functional"
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"
Pros: "entertainment and flight attendant"
Pros: "Good seats and service"
Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "Seats very small. And I’m only size 33!"

Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "A crew member did her best to resolve my problem"
Cons: "My seats designation were changed several times."
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: "Great service and delicious meals"
Pros: "The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS WE LOST A $5000.00 VACATION PLANED MONTHS BEFORE, MY GIRLFRIEND WAS NOT ABLE TO FLY BECAUSE HER NAME WAS MISSPELLED ON THE TICKET, NOBODY DID ANYTHING AT YOUR COMPANY TO FIX IT NEITHER DID THE AIRLINES, YOU GUYS TOTALLY RUINED OUR SUMMER. NO ONE HAS CONTACTED ME TO MAKE RIGHT OR SOMEHOW FIX THE MESS YOU GUYS CREATED"
Cons: "They said , the are not responsable for my personal items, this is not acceptable"
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Seats aren't so comfortable"
Pros: "Loading the back of the plane first."
Cons: "Canceling a flight, and not telling passengers what gate the flight is at till 2 hours before and then still switching gates. At one point the gate switched 5 minutes before boarding to the other side of the airport."
Pros: "People at checkin and crew members are super friends and helpful. There where even beverages and snacks included on that relatively short flight. At Dutch Airlines this would be extra, even then Dutch fares are higher. Kudos for Latam."
Cons: "It took very long taxiing before takeoff"
Pros: "Worst latam lost 4 loggages of my parents John f Kennedy New York to Trujillo - Peru 09-09-16 Inga Inga Sanchez, Rita Rojas Malqui, victor Flight B6212905- B6212906 Contact phone 7035658509"
Pros: "Comfortable space! Great entertainment ! Friendly staff"
Cons: "Not many food choices"
Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Pros: "I was traveling by myself from southern Chile to California and not too confident in my Spanish skills or knowing how my 6 month pregnant body would do on the long flight. The women and men who were the flight attendants took such amazing care of me and they helped so much to make the flight as comfortable as possible."
Pros: "Staff were decent. Polite. Not as helpful as othe flights"
Cons: "Simple fligtj. Spacious."
Pros: "Staff was nice"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled, and we were put on a flight that landed at the same time our connection was scheduled to take off. We had to run last minute and beg to be put on an earlier flight that gave us a chance at making our connection. Our luggage did not make the transfer, and LAN has only exhibited further incompetence with finding and returning our baggage. Here we are two days later in a tropical location with no clothes or necessary gear."
Pros: "We knew that this sector was operated by AA and we did not have high expectations. No complains, just ok"
Pros: "Clean plane with attentive crew."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Gate agents were rude and disorganized."
Pros: "Once onboard the crew and entertainment was great. The food was even edible."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We were the first foully to be bumped. The boarding and checkin process is horrible! I think that LAN can and should do a lot better."
Pros: "The plane was new."
Cons: "The line to drop off our luggage was ridiculous Even though we had pre checked in. There was separate line just to drop off the bags. When we arrived at our final destination, our bags weren't there."
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Cons: "First class seat was uncomfortable and had very little padding. Meal service was not good. No drinks offered."
Pros: "The crew was great as was the check in crew."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat and leg space."
Cons: "Less people because of COVID"
Cons: "Fue de lo peor, viaje a Bos a SAL , haciendo escala en NJ , los vuelos súper mega retrasados, pero el más retrasado fue el NJ a SAL , supuestamente iban. A compensar con alimentos pero lo único que dieron fue una galleta vencidas, y una bebida no más mal servicio, no lo recomiendo viajar en UNITED"
Cons: "I paid $100 for an upgrade on a United which turned out to be the first row, and right beside the rest room (which was erroneously showing as occupied for the first 20 minutes). The traffic made it feel like I was sitting on a bench in Grand Central Station. I chose an aisle seat but ended up mysteriously in the middle seat. I had extra leg room but if I’d eaten the free 5 pretzels I wouldn’t have been able to fit it my seat any longer. The WiFi wasn’t working for the first hour of the flight. The flight attendant got really annoyed when we didn’t look up when he came by with beverages the first time. We all had headphones on and were looking at our personal screens. The activity by the rest room was constant so we didn’t notice it wasn’t just someone waiting for the loo. The luggage took so long to come out I thought my conference would be over before I got it. Overall, I thought it was bad and confirmed why I don’t fly United. Old, dingy planes, poor service. The pilot was pleasant and communicative so there was at least that..."
Cons: "Serving something substantial to eat would be nice."
Pros: "Great take off and landing. My ears were not even plugged up after landing. Great piloting skills by the crew."
Cons: "Still in Houston after spending the night. Flight from Boston to SFO WAS DELAYED SEVERAL TIMES and we would have missed our connection to HNL. So we were diverted to IAH, where we spent the night and will leave for HNL soon."
Pros: "Non stop . Wife and I were given side by side seats"
Cons: "Last row"
Pros: "Professional staff and clean seat with smooth pilot who was not constantly announcing things"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Good. Seating. Not too crowded"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice, and although our flight was delayed and hour and fifteen minutes and our layover was an hour and fifteen minutes, we were able to make our connection! Since our connection to Portland in Denver was the last flight of the night, they were able to hold it for us. This was wonderful because there weren’t many flights out that weren’t booked solid for the next day. The attendants on this flight were great about updating us with information for the connections and telling us when we would land in Denver."
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour for cleaning. It was frustrating to say the least."
Pros: "The flight was short and sweet. However, the customer service rep checking me in at Logan could have been much more friendly. I was bringing my parents lobster from Maine, and I ended up having to check my box of lobster. I have a United Explorer card and a Chase Sapphire Preferred card and I was juggling my luggage and had to sit my money clip wallet on the counter. Since I had cash in my wallet, the customer service rep abruptly told me, “we don’t accept cash.” I have been flying for most of my life and I know that you have to pay for baggage fees with a credit card. This interaction was disappointing to say the least."
Cons: "No beverage service."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "A very tall, male, flight attendant very wonderfully took me almost all the way from one end of the horseshoe to the other. I didn't catch his name but he was SO helpful."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a few minutes and by the time we got to San Francisco, boarding was almost done for my connecting flight. I had to literally run from one end of the United terminals to the other... the entire horse shoe."
Pros: "Entertainment free and plenty of choices"
Cons: "Not even any free snacks, seats do not recline much at all"
Pros: "New plane, great service."
Cons: "The hot meal was gross, but that's too be expected these days. It was nice to even get one, honestly. In flight wifi didn't work but the crew was great about helping us get in touch with customer service about it."
Cons: "Got re-seated into a non-recline, bulkhead exit row. For a tall guy like me that's a death sentence on a 6h flight that's delayed extra at the end of a day"
Pros: "Free movies on the plane, because of errors."
Cons: "4 hour delays both ways. We missed our connection flight due to delays on the way home. That connection was the last flight out of that airport home. We ended up having to sleep in the airport overnight, because United wouldn't pay to put us in a hotel even though the delay was because of a mechanical error on the plane. Our 5 hour flight turned into a big ordeal."
Cons: "Took 3 days to deliver my case. They have daily flights. Very poor."
Pros: "We boarded very quickly. Take off and landing were immediate. I wasn't interrupted as I slept."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Ordinarily, a little over an hour isn't bad, but we ended up landing at 1:30 in the morning, local time. I called United expressing concern about the arrival time when I was first notified of the delay and all I was told was "I'm sorry for the inconvenience." I learned later that there was an earlier flight I could have tried to get on."
Cons: "Rude crew, departed three hours late, and not permitted to bring carry-on luggage. Awful."
Cons: "Sat in the middle of two people who took up part of my seat too."
Pros: "I liked the comfort that the plane gave. I also enjoyed the fact that the crew was all very friendly and kind."
Cons: "There was no music or free tv to watch on flight. There were delays due to high traffic."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Pros: "Took off late but landed on time"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Hot on board."
Cons: "Our plane was constantly moved around prior to boarding and it was 2 hours late."
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "Flash for mac did not install"
Cons: "I felt like I was on my way to my death"
Pros: "I LOVED the WiFi entertainment that had many movies to choose to watch for free. Staff was very friendly and good."
Cons: "I hated that the movie entertainment wasn't available on every flight. We had 2 flights in one day and just a couple hours after using the movies the second flight didn't allow it, I was hugely disappointed because it really makes the flight go by fast. Seats werent very comfortable. Boarding could be better."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and security checking bag at gate"
Cons: "Check in kiosk couldn't scan phone was glad to unload my carry-on and check it for free. Should be encouraged to check 1 bag for free from start for smaller bags. Flight attendant was crabby when I tried to squeeze past into my seat. She kind of apologized by being nicer to me after that. They kind of yelled at passengers to take their seats to take off. I liked United. Too bad about the incident I read about. I was on a flight with no available seats to LA and thought someone had taken my seat. Turns out I was reading it wirong on my phone abd the last seat available was actually mine."
Cons: "Crabby flight attendants"
Cons: "Still at airport. 40 minute flight delayed 3.5 hours. Now I get home at 2 am."
Pros: "The flight was bumpy but otherwise pleasant"
Cons: "There was a rude passenger that yelled at me as I was exciting the flight suggesting that I cut her off as we were getting off the plane thinking that I took her bag. It was outrageous and completely ruined the flight for me. I realize this has nothing to do with the flight but it just made me feel so crumby and attached that I felt the need to share it. Also the leg room was a joke. We barely had any room to move. I probably won't fly coach on united again due to the bad taste it left in my mouth. Unfortunate because it's hub is in chicago."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and accommodating"
Cons: "There was some sort of mix up with seat assignments two guys had the same seat assignment. The very nice gentleman who was sitting in my seat due this stood and allowed me to have my seat as it was on the isle and I was in boarding group 5 and my seat was all the way at the end by the bathrooms and needed to be able to stretch my legs into the isle. There was absolutely no leg room what so ever. The dude next to me spent the entire trip jabbing me in the side with his elbow so that he could access what little space I did have. I was unable to move my legs because every two seconds the entire plane was trekking to the back to use the bathroom, because while there was a third bathroom on the plane towards the front, for whatever reason nobody seemed to be using it."
Cons: "Because United scheduled flights without regard to airport Construction in Boston my flight was changed 3 times and I still missed my connecting flight. After I missed my flight, they refused to schedule me on the next available flight even though people behind me were scheduled because they were preferred customers. They refused to pay for my hotel and the customer service was rude arrogant and dismissive. I will absolutely never fly United again. The crew on the Boston flight to Newark was lovely everything beyond that was absolutely abhorrent. We got to our connecting flight exactly as boarding closed and they refused to let 11 people board. And subsequently, United staff was rude to us saying it wasn't their fault."
Pros: "Once flight began it ran quite smooth"
Cons: "I chose seats when I booked the tickets. So... Not quite sure how both myself and my partner didn't end up seated together, and both ended up in a middle seat sandwiched between 2 overweight people... Are you little people profiling to break up the overwhelming number of big people? another couple with 2 kids were also broken up into distant areas on the plane. I know everyone complains about so many things, and this wasn't the end of the world, but still, it's not ideal. The seating/etc seemed more disorganized than usual for this flight."
Pros: "I was so impressed with the captain and flight attendants handling the engine problems we had that sent us back to the gate for maintenance at Boston. They were calm and professional and (as a fearful flyer) I felt confident the captain was absolutely making sure we were safe to progress."
Cons: "It was so hot on the plane!!! It would have been awesome if they would have passed out water."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Pros: "The flight attendants were kind and attentative"
Cons: "Nothing stood out, no one went above and beyond. When boarding, a flight attendant said there was no room in the overhead for my carry on and told me I had to check in my bag. When I finally boarded the flight, there were many empty spaces that could have fit my carry on"
Pros: "Except for the boarding process, the flight went smoothly, the crew was friendly and I had no problems."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. I was issued a boarding pass with "see agent" instead of a seat assignment listed. When I saw the United agent at the gate I was told "don't worry we'll find you a seat." I was confused because I felt that I was treated as if I was flying stand by when in reality I booked my ticket in advance. Everything worked out in the end--I was one of the last on the plane but I got a seat and had no issues with finding a place for my carry-on--however, I prefer having an assigned seat to avoid the anxiety of not knowing what is going on during the boarding process."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "Pleasant and attentive flight staff. Stewardess made a fresh pot of coffee and was back with a cup in less than five minutes. When a passenger got sick after take off the stewardesses handled the situation quickly and professionally."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."
Pros: "On time boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "No free food, not a lot of options of free drinks"
Pros: "The flight was fast and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The boarding took forever"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag both ways. Flight extremely delayed on way home causing me to miss connection; minimal communication from gate crew. A complimentary drink included a Dixie cup full of soda."
Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
Pros: "Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One of the attendants was pushy and rude."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and nice. Due to a 2+ hour delay we had free movies on the flight."
Cons: "The fact that our incoming flight was delayed more than 2 hours."
