Pros: "Polite and friendly crew. Comfortable seats, new plane."
Cons: "Definitely the food could be better. It was tasteless."

Cons: "They cheat on us about the place of the seats. Saying was a good place but giving us the worse seats in the plane - just after bathroom where it doesn’t recline and impossible to sleep due traffic"

Pros: "The flight attendants are terrific. A huge packed plane and all were well cared for. The food, while not thrilling, was actually hot."
Cons: "Not enough closed captioning in the onboard entertainment system."

Cons: "Very narrow seats"

Pros: "Crew was very good, one crew member took time to make me coffee as I entered the plane"
Cons: "The food could have been better, maybe a bit more legroom. But definitely would like better food. The spaghetti and meatballs were good dinner, but I did not like the vegatables. I did, however, like the pudim."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Coffee"

Pros: "I loved my trip the flight was amazing"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"

Pros: "Best airline in Brazi"

Pros: "I really love how friendly the crew was! The seats were also very comfortable for a plane. I couldn’t get over how there were cameras to look at outside of the plane for those who didn’t have window seats as it helped with some landing anxiety. The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding was a bit confusing as the crew members spoke a majority of Portuguese and translated only very few times. I had to ask a crew memeber when I would board."

Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Air conditioning in my seat was broken and my blood pressure went down"

Pros: "Everything was fine except the flight was delayed an hour. No biggie. My only question is that I had a trip that passed through Isa to 3rd country. At check in I was informed that bags would go all the way through without re-checking in. Turns out bags had to be re-checked in at first entry to usa. I wish the rules were consistent and that all personnel knew the rules. Also united baggage track app does not work."
Cons: "United baggage app does not work Personnel did not know baggage rules at Chck in."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Despite buying a seat with extra room, it's really complicated for you to open your laptop and get some work done during a 10h flight.

Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Pros: "Nice selection of in-flight media Ahead of time arrival"
Cons: "MSP baggage service was probably the longest delay I have ever experienced w Delta~40 minutes. (Overshadows the ahead of time arrival). Also, I had an oversize item-ski bag-which for some reason they did not deliver through the designated "oversize baggage" door but instead put out against the wall through a side door well down the terminal from the designated door. I might still be standing there except my traveling companion walked down that way and found it."

Pros: "Food was good, roomy seats"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June and when I went to check-in I was given a standby ticket and was told that the flight was overbooked, and that I should have done mobile check-in. I was very anxious that I did not have a seat, and that I would not be able to board the plane. They kept telling me at the gate that they would call me when they had a seat until I forced my way to the counter and handed them my boarding pass and said I need a seat now.

Cons: "Took a lot of time for takeoff"

Pros: "excelente servicio"

Pros: "I liked the food and the crew's service"

Pros: "Crew was very understanding of our frustration and di the best they could do within their range(which wasn't much to be honest)"

Entertainment on board was extremely limited."

Pros: "Short plane ride"

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."

Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."

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: "The fact that I made it to my destination and Home safetly."
Cons: "The service is terrible . They lose bags , the planes are dirty, you can still see head grease on the windows and old dried up food on the seat backs. We were delayed 40 minutes. No annoucement or notification . The staff are rude , and don’t care . Very unreliable airline - the food is disgusting."

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."

Cons: "Crying baby next to me! (not the airlines fault though haha!)"

Pros: "Worst latam lost 4 loggages of my parents John f Kennedy New York to Trujillo - Peru 09-09-16 Flight B6212905- B6212906 Inga Inga Sanchez, Rita Rojas Malqui, victor Contact phone 7035658509"

Pros: "This was American Airlines. So the quality of the flight was significantly better."

Cons: "I flew LAN many years ago and remembered this flight to be a lot better than it was this time around. The seats barely recline and in Economy leg room is comparable to AA flights going to South America (which is pretty bad). Forget about sleeping. I had some hopes for the food but it disappointed too. Breakfast, for example, was essentially a warm sandwich with a paper thin layer of ham and cheese. They stuff you with bread. Had a much better experience flying sister company TAM."

I told that I had bought the Gol + Confort that have exclusive compartment to the hand baggage and I had showed my receive of the seat but they sayd that this benefits do not exist and took my baggage of me to drop off. It was an absurd and the worse thigh was that when I arrived at my seat, the exclusive space for my baggage was there available for my baggage and I had to drop off because the employee of the Gol didn’t know about this benefit of Gol + Confort seat and didn’t check out if really wasn’t space to my baggage"

Pros: "time was OK"

Not supportive."

Cons: "More efficient check in. Waiting in line far too long at gate."
