I liked the attention at the counter and on board. Everything happened in an orderly manner. I flew with COPA in May. From Panama I flew on Thursday. I returned from Miami on a Sunday. The flight from Panama to Miami then was wonderful, but returning from Miami at the counter and boarding was a complete disaster. The operator at the counter was rude and apathetic. Because of the disorder to board we lost our spot to take off and we’re grounded for an hour. This time both ways were outstanding! I hope they continue to improve and show the same good service on weekends than the one during week days! Thank you!

Pros: "The food they serve besides being a very small portion, is disgusting."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "So, because I was 3 mins late to the gate, they made me spend another $320 for a fligh next day. I'm still in Panama city. Its unbelievable how the plane is still there, with the corridor that takes the passengers to the plane still attached to it, and they can look me straight in he face and tell me they cant reopen the door. While I'm stressfully paying an extra $320 and knowing I'm going to lose 1 whole day of my vacation in Rio because of one little detail that could be solved by opening the door and letting me in, I see the plane there sitting in the same spot for another 15-20 mins without moving. Worst company service ever. Unbelievable. I will never fly with these people again."

Cons: "Very minor point on not having an entertainment system, but the flight was short at just over 1hr. It was hard to understand some announcements over the speakers because of the sound system plus the fast talking with heavy accents"
Pros: "But... when I purchased a tkt online. For some reason the name on last ticket I purchased was on the next COPA ticket. A 300.00 purchase. Because COPA does not change ticket holders names it was a total loss. I bought the ticket for a student in Cali to come and meet me in Panama City I couldn't afford to buy a second ticket so Victor stayed home. Every other Airline charges a minimal fee to make changes on a ticket so now there is a credit at Copa Airlines for a person that will never ever use it.... such a waste of time and money. Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"

When initially assigned my son, it said: "No one under 2 is allowed to seat in emergency seats" a bit misleading and inconvenient. Other than this we had a great experience."
Cons: "I was first on a direct flight to Medellin then they changed me to a connrcting flight to bogota then to Medellin. A direct flight that would have been one hour changed. Now it was a 3 hour flight. Well it ended up being like a 6 hour flight with so many delays. Ended up losing a whole day because of it. I was not happy about it."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I don’t even know how and where to start.. Avianca has given me issues in the past and I have decided a few more times to give them a chance. Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Cons: "I didn't get to fly aerolinas Argentina. I was shunted to a different airline"

If you are traveling to Salta and don’t want to wait long , the best connecting flight from Miami Is the one that leaves Miami at 6:45 which arrives at Ezeiza at 4:15 am and connect to Salta at 6:00 am. I went thru immigrations and rechecked my baggage in less than 40 min. It was a great experience with smooth travel experience."

Pros: "Excellente staff and crew willing to help. Entertainment system works beautifully and really helped pass a 9-hour flight."
Cons: "Carry-on luggage requirements are different than what I am used to and was expecting. If I had known ahead of time, I would have organised my things differently. Please clarify this when sending flight confirmation."
Pros: "Clean, efficient, friendly modern airline. Absolutely no complaints, especially given the rock bottom rate we paid!"
Cons: "No issues with the airplane or staff. Travelers to Argentina should know, however, that the airlines require proof of a ticket for leaving the country before boarding their flight. We had only booked one way so we had to book a bus ticket to Uruguay using our cell phones. It was very disconcerting. (Some very kind airline staff helped us with that). And even more so because no one at customs in Argentina asked for any return information! A last minute return flight booking at the gate was quoted at an outrageous sum."
Pros: "Plane was brand new. Got to the airport early, personnel at the gate asked out of their own initiative if I wanted a better seat on the emergency row. They serve the usual airplane drinks (coffee, coke, water, juice, etc.) and give you a bag of trail mix and a cereal bar - not as good as the alfajores from a few years ago but still way better than what you'd get in North America or Europe these days. They offered streaming to your own device for IFE but I didn't use it. It's a pleasure to see so much improvement to Aerolineas vs. a few years ago. The monitors had dozens of flights and they were all on-time, both ways."
Pros: "Wasn’t told before the flight that I needed a ticket out of Argentina by plane, bus or train. Damn near didn’t make the flight. Purchase a bus ticket to Uraguay"
Pros: "Everything worked out on time. Plane with renovated interior, large screen IFE, food just normal airplane food. Movie selection a bit mediocre. Received excellent service from staff in Buenos Aires (had to check in extra bag that my family had there, it was oversize and the agent took extra care, walked me to oversize bag check)."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great at all times."
Pros: "Check in person was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant kept speaking Spanish to me and got very irritated when I said that I don't speak Spanish. I was the only one she told to put my seat in upright position during the meal. Food is very mediocre. No leg room whatsoever... Also very noisy kid didn't help the impression on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was 3 hours delayed"
Pros: "They acomódate my self on emergency seat right away, because I'm very tall and I really appreciated that. Service on board, were very attended at all the time and they tried to do the best with what they have."
Cons: "Blue headphones were not only working improperly (only one was with sound) but also short on stock. Seat was very tight."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "I liked the excellent customer service, they are a professional team."
Cons: "For first class they had little service and seats were not comfortable. No wi-fi or charging abilities"
Cons: "not anywhere near enough leg room"
Cons: "We flew 4 Aerolineas Argentinas flights on our 2 week trip to Argentina. 1 was cancelled and the other 3 were delayed. The ticketing agents really couldn't have cared less. They were incredibly unhelpful in trying to rebook our cancelled flight. We ended up having to buy all new tickets online. It was a mess for our 4/4 flights."
Pros: "The evening staff at Miami international airport was great, very helpful and kind"
Cons: "My flight that was supposed to leave in the afternoon was delayer and nobody told us till we got to the airport, the staff in the afternoon was rude."
Pros: "Of the six flights we flew, all were on time. Also, the crew (pilots/flight attendants) were very professional and took their jobs seriously."
Cons: "I had no complaints. I had read other accounts of problems with the airline, but I didn't see that at all."
Pros: "un vuelo pobre para la tarifa que aplican . horrible los asientos , comida de poca calidad y tripulación totalmente en otra dimensión y sin calidad de servicio al pasajero."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Distance between seats (pitch) , Crewmembers testily, flight entertainment not work (IFE)"
Cons: "The plane was very old"
Pros: "Left on time, plane was comfortable and clean and the crew was very polite."
Cons: "Meal was a bit small"
Pros: "Everything ok"
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "We had a delay of o ver 1,30 your for departure and no one gave any explanation nor excuse."

1 hour or more delay

This was my first flight with LATAM, and I loved it! After not being able to reach my final destination on Spirit Airlines, I booked a ticket with LATAM. I unknowingly booked a first class ticket, but I was not disappointed! I had never been in first class, and I was so impressed with the flight attendant politeness and attentiveness, meal service, spaciousness, comfort, and window views. I would like to fly them again!

Cons: "Would not let us board with 25 minutes prior to departure Because they lock their doors 35 minutes prior"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and the food was the best I've had on a plane trip."
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice."
Cons: "It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere."
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Cons: "The check-in and boarding process was chaotic. Only one check-in station accepted credit cards to pay for check bags, creating a long delay when the printer broke."
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)"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Good service and food though the items on the food tray were just the meal and a dessert snack. Other airlines have food trays with salad, fruit, the entree and a snack dessert. But as long as we get there safe and sound I am ok."
Cons: "Boarding process in Miami was chaotic. Started late as the crew reported late to the flight. Nobody knew what's going on until the gate agents made an announcement that the crew was reporting late. We departed almost an hour late."
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: "Vegan food please!!!"
Cons: "Las time change my AirPort"
Pros: "Excellent boarding, something that all the airlines should do: starting boarding from the back of the plain. Boarding is much faster."
Pros: "Entertainment and extra seats everywhere"
Pros: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Pros: "I was a little worried because I hadn't flown them before but they were excellent. Plenty of leg room, the flight attendants were lovely, everything was clean, food was good (not gourmet but good) and no real turbulence. It was great."
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight, made no effort to get me home and didn’t reimburse me for my hotel when I had to stay in Iquitos."
Pros: "entertainment and flight attendant"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Timely and leg room ok."
Cons: "I’d rather have the option to buy good food than to get prepaid substandard food. No entertainment system available but these days everybody brings their own tablet anyway. Crew was polite and professional."
Pros: "Great Staff. Beautiful plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Miami and then some more arriving in Bogota. I understand this isnt the airline's fault"
Pros: "Food is good. Customer service is great."
Cons: "They didnt put movies."
Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"
Pros: "It was a new plane, the pilot waited for our bags to be put into the plane. Because we made it to the plane after they had loaded everyone. This was due to our late arrival From our Delayed connection from Washington."
Cons: "At our arrival a couple had taken our seats. The flight attendant told us to get on any other seat available. We had our family (the three of us ) spread out in the plane. I had to ask another attendant to please ask for our seats back. Finally after a while we got them back but it wasn't a Pleasant experience. They didn't have enough headphones to give everyone. My son and I had to share one headphone. The food was really bad for an international flight, Not even the wine was given without paying for it"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "Had pillows and blankets"
Cons: "TV monitor did not work They asked if I would like something to drink I asked for a Coke and they said they didn't have any on the bevrage truck twenty minutes later I received the coke"
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."
Pros: "In-air service was excellent. My international flight was very smooth, flight attendants were kind and attentive, food and drink was provided free of charge, and onboard entertainment was available for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "It helps to be flexible when booking with LATAM, as my return flight itinerary was changed several times before being finalized."
Cons: "No movies."
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Cons: "We waited over an hour at the baggage claim carousel to collect our luggage. We received no communication or announcement about what was going on. Unnecessarily appalling customer service."
Cons: "They auto rescheduled my flight to Washington since we arrived in Miami late. They failed to emphasis that the flight that left 90 minutes later was going to a different Washington airport."
Pros: "This was the last leg of a very long trip. It went great and the whole trip went as planned. Highly recommend LATAm and American."
Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido. Los que están en tránsito deberían permitirles bajar del avión antes para poder llegar en hora al otro vuelo. Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "Staff was nice despite the situation."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, we were reassigned to a Turkish Airlines flight that departed more than 6 hours later than our cancelled flight, we were given lunch but at a fast food restaurant even when we had to carry along all our luggage (super un-practical). And searching for info on twitter I found out this flight gets cancelled quite a lot."
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"
Cons: "Waiting in long lines in Miami to check in, over an hour. And then they let other passengers who came late for their flight go in front of me. At that point I thought that would be the first and last time I travel Latam."
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "1 hour delay....., without explanations-"
Cons: "It took forever to load the plane and they overbooked a few seats. The crew was clueless about how to handle seating a nice family whose seats were taken. 20 minutes later, the crew finally got it together. Also, the sandwich sucked. Some type of cream cheese on a lousy roll. Unbelievably bad and a calorie waste; tasted like wall paste."
Pros: "Boarding was handled very efficiently"
Cons: "The plane looked very dated. But otherwise it was a pleasant experience"
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
