Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
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."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
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: "Foot rest in coach"
Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Pros: "Good seat space, comfortable, on time arrival"
Cons: "The food was ok, not great. The plane was Very cold!!!"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. I was given the wrong seat number and they helped sort it out. They also did priority boarding for us when the queue was ridiculous"
Cons: "The check in process was a mess with people going from all queues and it took far too long. They also have me the wrong seat number for boarding causing lots of confusion"
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: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Almost all planes have seats crammed too close together."
Cons: "More choices of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."
Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."
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: "The time it took to open the door upon arrival"
Cons: "Great service, excellent food, very good quality, comfortable, thanks so much for everything. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
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."
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"
Pros: "no"
Cons: "everthing"
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: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Cons: "Flight attendants rude and lack of cleaning in the toilets."
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"
Cons: "My wife’s hand luggage was taken off her and put into the hold, against her wishes. When we arrived in São Paulo, the bag handle had been totally destroyed and the bag dented. During the flight we were only given water, the toilet had no paper or soap. Very poor"
Pros: "Boarding and Check in was really good"
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was too cold. A bit warmer would have been better."
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Cons: "Old aircraft Business seat narrow"
Pros: "Window seat & no one sat next to me"
Cons: "Customer service at baggage check in desk. Very very poor and slow"
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"
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "easy enough..."
Pros: "On board entertainment"
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"

Cons: "Original flight cancelled without any notice / auto check-in not available / delay / aleatory seat selection / poor food service"
Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."
Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Late boarding, no television or personal entertainment options, food was not so good."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight delayed one hour and the air conditioning wasn’t functioning"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Should have boarded 30 minutes earlier!"
Cons: "Gol changed our direct flyght departing 14h to a connected one departing 7h rriving 17h. This company is a shame, and brazilian Agency does not forbid that (Gol could simply return our money back)."

Cons: "Not remarkable at all. Terrible food."
Pros: "Cabin crew amazing"
Pros: "Check-in"
Pros: "Nothing."
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! ."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "The discomfort of the seats!"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "I did not like the delays. My flight to Rio was delayed almost 4 hours and my return flight was delayed 1 hour. I would not fly this airline again."
Cons: "Was charged 50 for my bag"
Pros: "- Comfortable seat and clean aircraft at a reasonable price & time - On-time"
Cons: "- Kayak displayed that 1 checked bag was included in fare when it was not"
Pros: "On time and great customer service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense. They were helping the domestic flight people first with less bags to check in and the international flights were backed up with people missing their connections. No common sense at all. Incompetent service."
Pros: "Better snack"
Cons: "Snack"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats for such a long flight 10 hrs"
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, the flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "As a wheelchair user I was treated well from the ticket agents, escorts, gate agents and flight crew."
Cons: "Not one thing."
Pros: "Quick boarding, smooth flight, and my checked bag was waiting for me at the carousel by the time I got down to baggage claim. All in all, a very easy flight"
Cons: "The carry-on bag policy is a bit unusual so I ended up checking the suitcase I’d typically bring as carry-on"
Pros: "Puntuality"
Cons: "Space on the seats, between the seats."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No kosher food"
Pros: "La tripulación y la atención muy buena. La distancia entre los asientos excelente"
Cons: "Lo que no me gusta es que una aerolínea que vuela entre Brasil y Argentina la tripulación no hable español, eso me parece pésimo"
Pros: "nice, clean plane; nice check-in experience"
Cons: "Crammed bus to the airplane"
Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Flight extremely delayed, people accompaning crew boarded first and took space in the overhead, i tried to change seats no no one at the gate was willing to work"
