My flight was canceled and I was informed about it when I was dropping off my luggage. They suggested to put me in a new flight with stops (even I had paid for a direct flight). After a said no, they found a direct flight, however I had to wait in the airport for 7 hours! It was terrible. They should comunicate the problem in the check in, not wait everyone to arrive in the airport for that.

Nothing about flying with them is good. If you have small children stir away, pay $500 more on another ticket and it will worth every penny. Not worth the headache, hassle, stress, and every other horrible emotion they will make you face. Just flew NYC - Sao Paolo and the customer service prior to the flight, and the workers at check in at the airport were useless. They are rude, inefficient, they have no idea what's going on, they will screw up everything about your flight and won't even say sorry. There were people on the preferential line and normal line crying, doing live videos on Facebook complaining about the wait and lack of professionalism, people screaming, older folks upset, all because they don't have enough staff to move things along and IF ANY PROBLEM arises at check in they won't help you and the line will stop for another half an hour. This happen on both airports and the airport workers who were trying to calm things down said it's a normal occurrence with TAM/ Latam and that's what you get for flying with them. Never , ever, ever again......

flight was over two hours late because of a late incoming plane. That may be for good reason, but we weren't told until less than one hour before takeoff. It doesn't make sense that the airline just found out one hour before takeoff that the flight was two hours behind. We should have been told sooner about the delay, while we had other choices of alternate flights.

The only positive thing to be said for the flight was that the seat was not uncomfortable.

Entertainment system did not work during entire flight; crew (stewards) lied to passengers on the ground that it would work after takeoff, only admitting after we were in the air that they had been told by the technicians it would not work at all. Crew did not respond to call lights when pressed (in First Class), nor did they know how to operate the power system.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
