Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "No Crew."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, never went."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"
Cons: "Call for stewards was not working and the temperature of the flight was miserable. Kept asking to reduce the cold and nothing. I had a window seat and there was no way to avoid the air/ac on my face the entire flight. MISERABLE!"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Luggage....it is allowed to charge but they shouldn’t charge. During on boarding they communicate that because the cabin was full of hand luggage the rest of the passengers needed to dispatch their hand luggage for free. This occurs only because they charge to dispatch luggage when buying the tickets. So nobody dispatch luggage and those who dis became frustrated because they payed. This unfortunately occurs on all companies."
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Good seat space, comfortable, on time arrival"
Cons: "The food was ok, not great. The plane was Very cold!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late"
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: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
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: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Almost all planes have seats crammed too close together."
Cons: "More choices of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "With the red eye flight, there were limited food options. Probably what happens normally, but it was a third leg of a journey for us an we were hungry!"
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: "Crew, on board entertainment..."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized. A lot of food options but only one dish, missed the salad or other options compared to other companies such as Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and etc.. Drinks were ok, lacked alcohol options compared to other companies."
Cons: "Only one gate agent was boarding passengers, which made the boarding process very slow. I was assigned a seat on the aisle in front of the exit row. For a midnight flight, I was really bummed to find out that my seat would not recline! My leg room on the A321 was lacking in comparison with GOL."
Cons: "TV at each seat"
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"
Cons: "Try to avoid LATAM. Actually low cost competition is offering a better service. Latam grew too much and the service is bad. They are making too many mistakes such as not delivering basic information such as where to pick up luggage claim. Honest advice: look for alternatives and avoid big headaches"
Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."
Cons: "Boarding was adjacent to C04 with the Aerolineas flight leaving 5 minutes before us. This congested the boarding but was well handled."

Cons: "Muito triste minha bagagem nao apareceu na hora do desembarque viajei na classe executiva essa e a ultima vez"
Pros: "Nothing. Passenger name could not be changed due to a mistake by you and lastminuite.com so I lost the flight and was not refunded the full amount! Bad service."
Cons: "If the passenger name was changed as requested and I would not lose the money."
Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"

Cons: "Anyone who flies the route NVT-GRU knows two things. The departure and landing times are unreliable and they always....always over sell seats. Navegantes (NVT) is a very small airport but connects to so many international flights. The city and many of the neighboring towns have become vacation hotspots. I personally fly this route twice a month these days So many bad things happen because of their poor on-time results and overbooking. The worst of which is missing your connections. This was the third time in 2 months that I’ve missed my connection in São Paulo to NYC. This time I purposely took an earlier flight 6:40pm so I would have no chance to miss my 11pm flight to New York. Then a 2 hour and 20 minute delay! My God ...really? Another missed flight. GOL you CAN do BETTER! ."
