When purchasing tickets, it was not stated that luggage fees may apply, and when we checked the luggage we weren’t how much the baggage fees we’re until we went to another counter."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very attentive and helpful. Great service. The plain looked new. Food was very good compared to other airlines."

Cons: "Only came by once on a 3.5 hour flight for drinks service."
Pros: "All planes had nice Sky interiors. Pitch was better than LAN B789s. All flights arrived between 15 and 20 min. early. I had to check another bag between 2 flights (I had left one in a locker at 2nd airport) and it was no issue at all, personnel at Ezeiza were efficient and friendly."
Cons: "Although IFE was ok (large new screens, good brightness), the movie selection wasnt stellar, and there was no classical music to relax. But these are minor points. Food was regular airplane food, nothing special but not worse than anywhere else."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "After our first Uber driver decided he didn’t want to take us to the airport, we found another one 15 min later. We arrived at the airport exactly 1 hour before the flight but after we had to be sent to the international counter, we were only 51 minutes before the flight. They wouldn’t let us even try to make the flight. When we went to customer service they charged $600 to change the flights - 2 tickets. What extortion. I was very disappointed."

Pros: "Smooth and comfortable flight. We were upgraded to business class....nice."

Pros: "Smooth and on time flight. Food was lacking considering 6am departure."

Pros: "The paint color of the plane."
Cons: "International flight, no alcohol available for purchase or free. The food served was a sandwich, cookie & mint. I have Celiac Disease & could not eat any of it besides the mint. The sandwich was two slices of bread with a slice of meat & some sort of cheese in between - looked dry & awful. The landing was not pleasant, I thought we crashed. Entertainment was not provided nor a USB plug."
Pros: "First time first class. Not expected. Super comfortable."
Pros: "Quick flight and boarding process once we got going. Airport is new and small."
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly approximately three hours and the sign changed twice but little information given except to, "Ask an agent." It was explained once on board weather at the airporr was the hold up. No food or electronics on board to rate but the flight was only an hour so not a big deal to me but it's always nice to have a cell charger nearby. Flight crew was fine, didn't interact with them much due to short nature of the flight."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "flight took off on time."
Cons: "Flight staff is brusque and not very friendly or attentive to passengers."
Pros: "Delays, airport of destiny changed with no explanation"
Cons: "Some grumpy crew members that obviously did not appreciate being on the special schedule flight departing at 4am. Priority Boarding had only one security check personnel (as oppose to the six people at regular boarding). This made the boarding process very slow. The airline should allocate personal to the priority boarding first and then move them to the regular boarding once priority boarding is complete."
Cons: "It seems like there is no simple grasp of what priority luggage means. It means that it should be handled first and that it would come out first on the carousel. This did not happen and caused significant delay in our departure."
Pros: "It never happened, so nothing."
Cons: "Being informed of flight cancellation 12 hours before flight and being offered a flight 15 hours later. Wasted day hanging around Ushuaia."
Pros: "Old plane with tv channels, you can not choose your movie"
Pros: "On time, convenient. Newer planes and better than 10 years ago."
Cons: "My ticket was not in the system flight network had messed up the booking so I had to rebuy the ticket"
Cons: "Seats so close, I couldn't sit straight, knees against the sit in front of me. Had to sit almost sideways with knees sticking out into the aisle. I'm 6'1""
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was like 3 hours late"
Pros: "I liked the size of the plane. It made boarding quick and easy and there was lots of space for carry-on luggage. I also liked the amount of space I had for my feet. I was surprised we got a little snack and I thought the crackers, chocolate cookie, and lemon cookie were great."
Cons: "I wish I had had a pillow to sleep with. There was also some extremely rough turbulence when leaving Buenos Aires heading south and it made me really nervous, and I normally never get nervous on flights."
Pros: "Flights on time. Pleasant staff. Seats more comfortable than on many planes."
Cons: "Non-vegetarian food not available"
Pros: "Constantly changing flight time made travelling for myself and friends a nightmare. We will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."
Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
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 had christmas ware on."
Cons: "Food did not taste good. Better wine."
Cons: "Crazy early. Boarding pass says gate closes by 1205 (for scheduled 1220 departure). We TOOK OFF (in air) before 1200. We got yelled at because we arrived only 1 hour early — should be 3 hours early for an “international flight”. Luggage very difficult, Must rush, etc. But everything turned out great. Scl is crazy airport — 20 minute wait for gate ramp when we got there (still 20 minutes early, instead of 40! On a 60-minute scheduled flight!). Huge long walk to immigration. Pretty long wait for bags. But it all worked out fine."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seats"
Pros: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "The seat was ok."
Cons: "I have a delay for 24hs."
Pros: "We will actually travel tonight due to cancellations and route changes. Our seats were upgraded and we were put up in a nice hotel to rest before flight."
Cons: "Better communication about route change and code sharing to fix it."
Cons: "La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina."
Cons: "Luggage ruined grease all.over it Service said they could do nothing"
Cons: "Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade."
Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"
Cons: "Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about."
Pros: "Premium Economy DIRTY , Aircraft was not cleaned even in Prem. Economy. Seat sold as Business Class on Kayak but actually exact same seat as economy in the back. Mean was disgusting Seat was dirty, Could not understand ANY of the announcements Will definately try a different carrier when available"
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
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."
Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
Pros: "Good crew, excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable seats and on-time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking, so there was only an in-flight magazine to read with limited English language material"
Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."
Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"
Cons: "Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big."
Pros: "LA844 was cancelled the day before but luckily our day went off without a hitch. LA842 was delayed several hours to create LA1144, which was effectively the cancelled flight from the day before. Airport wasn't as chaotic as I might have expected. No issues at all with this flight."
Cons: "I'm still weary of LATAM after they left us in Lima for 15 hours after 2 cancelled flights. No issues this flight though (at least for us... poor sobs on the cancelled flight the day before were delayed about 15 hours themselves)."
Cons: "Flight cancelled twice, 15 hour delay, disorganized announcements and management. Truly awful"
Pros: "Comfortable and sufficient entertainment."
Cons: "The food wasn’t spectacular."
Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."
Pros: "Gate crew was very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hours inside the plane in JFK with no electricity (no AC or lights) before taking off. The crew said it was the airport employees that had caused the problem."
Pros: "Lancing was excellent. Good leg room, good leather sits"
Cons: "I thought service was good."
Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."
Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous! Competent and very helpful, even funny when serving food and drinks! I fly very frequently but this was one of the nicest crews I had in years!"
Cons: "Segunda vez en una semana que me mojan , me derramaron cafe el vuelo anterior y hoy jugo de naranja. El espacio es muy pequeño y chocan los brazos cuando ofrecen bebida ; o el de adelante se mueve y bota todo encima ... un desastre, cero comodidad , la silla más dura que nunca y el espacio para las piernas, o sea, yo mido 1.74 y voy justa, que será para el resto de la población.. no por incluir una fila más hagan que todos vayamos incómodos ; y de la tripulación, nada que decir, solo me pasaron servilletas y me desearon suerte .. me gustaría algún tipo de compensación, porque , para más remate, llegamos más tarde de lo estimado."
Pros: "Great short flight and they got us to Santiago early since everyone was at the gate"
Cons: "They changed my seat without notice nor great explanation."
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"
Cons: "No Movie Screen"
Cons: "I have to pay for the food with no actual discount or lower price ticket. and the sits are even more tight than before."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn't even offer water, this on a 3 1/2 hour flight, took too long to board, too long to get off...they sold food on the flight, they seemed to cater to whomever wanted to buy food, & like I said offer water to the rest of us. Just an overall horrible flight."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Specially crew leader Sandra"
Cons: "My original flight was supposed to land at 8:55pm but I was notified that it had been changed to land closer to midnight which was a problem because my hotel closed at midnight. After talking to the customer service agent at the airport he told me the reason my flight had changed was because my original airplane was flying out of another airport and the only way to make the flight that I had booked was to take a cab ride to the other airport. What he didn't explain was that its a 45+ minute drive between the two airports and I only had about 1.5 hours to get my bag, get on the taxi, check in at the other airport, clear security AND customs. Somehow by the grace of god it all came together but it was certainly a harrowing experience, not to mention the $45 I lost in cab fares. I cannot recommend LAN/LATAM."
Cons: "The agents are NOT CONSISTENT in knowledge or charging baggage fees."
Cons: "Staff not helpful, announcement's only in spanish despite many English speaking tourists."
Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."
Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."
Pros: "You should train your one world partners. After such a good trip with LAN you end up with American Airlines where crew treates you as you were a criminal!"
Cons: "You should train your one world partners. After such a good trip with LAN you end up with American Airlines where crew treates you as you were a criminal."
Pros: "Good section of movies! Tasty food!"
Cons: "My usb charger was not working, so I couldn't use my smartphone to play or listen to my songs, and it is quite small space for legs, disconfortable to a long flight!"
