Top 5 airlines serving Santiago Arturo Merino Benitez to California
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was ok, the seats just needed to recline a bit more"
Cons: "The crew gave the passenger across from me at least 4 glasses of liquor and he got drunk. This was an evening flight, the passenger was loud and I couldn't close my eyes and sleep"
Cons: "Avianca overbooked the flight by 10 passengers. They would not board the flight until they got 10 volunteers to except only $240 voucher for delaying their flight by one day. It took them three hours to accomplish that. The hot food had been delivered on time to the plane, so that also sat for three hours. By the time it was served during the flight it had turned to rubber. This was all together a dreadful experience. We missed our connecting flight in Los Angeles and Avianca airlines provided no help on that. ."
Cons: "After one hour waiting to claim my bag, mine was the first to show up, but it was open. The airline staff broke the lock and took the jewels I had inside. Now, the airline is not assuming the responsibility for what they stole from me."
Pros: "Seemed to be more leg room than I'm used to."
Cons: "Food reminded me of bad airline food from the 80's. None of the entertainment was available in English."
Pros: "Nice plane."
Cons: "My son's entertainment center did not work and tje crew could not do something about it."
Pros: "Non stop flight, the plane, and i got a good price."
Cons: "Food very low quality, the crew's attitude is very far from the ideal, compared to my next fligth on EVA Air."
Cons: "Removed battery picks I had as presents when they had travelled OK with me from South America through the US..."
Pros: "Comfort Seats Service"
Pros: "Entertainment options. Not overly packed or overbooked like many American airlines. Tasty food and beverage options"
Cons: "Waited 15 minutes on boarding ramp. Small portions of food and drink. No intermittent services of liquids other than standard 2 meal services. No passenger control - people running wild."
Pros: "Las películas"
Pros: "Good selection of movies, free exit row seats and extremely cheap fare"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding with extra security measures before entering the plane (opening carry on and patting you down), we were about 30minutes late, crew couldn't control passengers with kids (kids were running around the plane), horrible food and stiff seats (barely any cushion)."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight from Santiago to Bogota so I had to travel for 15 more hours."
Cons: "The size of the seats no leg room."
Pros: "Before our flight, several people were called to the check-in desk. These were obviously frequent flyers because later we saw these individuals sitting in Executive Class. Felt a little jealous, because I'm not a frequent flyer, but it was nice to see how Avianca takes care of its regular customers. Everything about the flight was first class, even if I was sitting in coach. The staff were friendly and helpful, the plane was comfortable--a 787, everyone's favorite--and the food was actually very tasty: chicken breast with a delicious green curry/salsa, some rice, green salad. Water and juices were available in the aft galley in between the meal and light snack before arrival. The entertainment offerings were terrific. If I hadn't had such great traveling companions to chat with, I would have caught up on some new releases I had missed, or one of the classics--"Singing in the Rain," "Citizen Kane," and much more. I don't know how you could improve the customer experience. Great job, Avianca!"
Pros: "Food, seats, entertaiment, customer service"
Cons: "The baggage took almost half hour to come out, I missed my car in the rental because of that."
Pros: "Flight on time and nice attendants."
Cons: "That they would not allow me to choose a seat before 24 hours of departure because the "ticket was too cheap"."
Pros: "the whole crew."
Pros: "Service was spectacular and the plane was almost new."
Pros: "It's just ok"
Pros: "The food they served for dinner was enjoyable."
Cons: "After arriving in San Salvador from San Jose, another passenger informed us that there was a flight departing for LAX at around 3:30 PM. Considering that our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:25 PM, we decided to ask the customer representative at the Avianca information desk if there were any open seats available on our flight home to LAX. She informed us that there were open seats BUT we would have to pay an extra $200 to board that flight. I have been on other airlines before and they have offered me the option to get on an earlier flight - FREE OF CHARGE. Considering I had bought my complete, round trip ticket for $435, the idea of paying an extra $200 for one leg of my journey seemed ludicrous! So I stayed the 6+ hours in El Salvador. Fast forward 6 hours and the desk agent at our gate announces that our flight is completely booked and they are offering $300 for anyone who will give up their seats. I am PISSED. Avianca knew our flight was overbooked and had the opportunity to take two passengers off the list and free up seats for the next flight! Instead, they chose to make us wait and delayed our flight. I do not understand Avianca's customer service procedures. Why would you not put my friend and I on the next flight when you know the next flight is going to be overbooked and possibly delayed? I'll I know is that if I can avoid flying with Avianca in the future, I will do it."
Pros: "on time departure. great service on board"
Pros: "Worth the price. Service , comfort, food and entertainment better than most airlines out there."

Pros: "It was awesome that movies and checking bags were free for the flight! That was something i did not expect:)"
Cons: "I had an original seat that I paid for, but because the flight was overbooked and oversold, i moved three times to different sections towards the back of the plane, in the end where my seat did not have electricity, light, or the tv working. I moved because there was a family that wanted to sit together, and that I completely understand, but what I don't get is why I wasn't told or given a seat of equal value that I Paid for. it was an 8 hour flight without light to read, no tv to watch and no music."
Pros: "Good Flight, good Food and great Entertainment"
Cons: "They Oversold the airplane seats, and put me on stand by after me buying this airplane ticket about 3 months before. They had me stressed out for the boarding part hoping for someone to give their seat and take a later flight."
Pros: "On flight home I had seat 1 c on my ticket so I went to coach to find 1c. I soon found out that 1c was business class !! It was wonderful sitting up there. My friend booked the flight and even she didn't realize 1c was business class. I had a wonderful flight back to LAX in 1c. The crew was special as well. Nelson made me feel special as well as rest of crews."
Cons: "way overbooked and put on stand by for no reason."
Pros: "787 seemed new, nicely appointed, FA's attentive, excellent selection of movies, Very smooth flight, cannot remember a smoother one, good landing at LAX."
Cons: "Poor check-in process at Avianca counter BOG, very slow attendant who seemed to go through the motions. Flight number changed twice, seat selection which was confirmed twice, was dropped at the end, forcing me to reselect seats located in the back of the plane. This was very annoying as I had kept abreast of all airline emails regarding flight number changes, and yet at the end it was for naught as my traveling companion and I were placed in different sections. The dinner was worse than usual poor quality."

Pros: "Comfortable and clean plane, crew professional and nice."
Pros: "The cockpit crew waited to turn the plan off until the Footbal playoff game was finished. I thought that was very considerate of them."
Cons: "Seats were right but that I guess is to be expected these days."

Cons: "Rushing to board resulting in bad customer service during boarding"
Pros: "Perfectly fine first class trip"
Cons: "Breakfast meal was awful"
Pros: "Very friendly gate attendants helped us fix the problem that our frequent flyer number had not been entered on the boarding pass. This may have been because of the booking co., Just Fly."
Cons: "Would have liked more seat options, like when I book on Delta's website. Didn't have enough advance warning."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Staff is friendly."
Cons: "My wife's pre-check was not added to her ticket. Plane was extremely late taking off. No entertainment on the flight."

Pros: "Easy and quick"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I liked the check-in kiosk, but only because I had no bags to check. I liked being able to choose my own seat. I liked that the flight was uneventful. I liked the staff at all stages, they were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "They made me shove my purse into my knapsack to fit within their two bag policy. That's a first for me. My Delta flight did not do that."
Cons: "When I bought my ticket last Nov , I paid extra to select seats, only to discover no aisle seats available for the 15 hour flight from LAX to Guanghzou. I tried many times to call CSA LA office using toll free and regular number, but could never speak to a human. Last November 7 I missed my flight home due to the Thai King's motorcade causing the road I was on to be closed for more one hour. I arrived at the CNXairport nearly one hour before the scheduled departure time, only to find CSA check in counters already closed. CSA Bangkok made me pay for a one way ticket home on Nov 8 even though all 3 flights were not full. I arrived well I'm advance and checked in. CSA began boarding 30 minutes before the time shown on my boarding pass and closed the aircraft doors shortly aftethe boarding time listed. No wonder I missed my Nov 7 flight! I wrote CSA LA a letter including the receipt for the one way ticket and requested a refund or at least a reply or home call. I never received a reply. I have flown CSA/Delta from Detroit, MI to Chiang Mai, Thailand 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. It seems they don't care about customer loyalty. In the future CSA will not be my first choice and I will pay somewhat more to fly another airline."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Lots of water being offered. Lucky to have extra seat for comfort."
Cons: "It seemed longer than the estimated time. The food was bland. My husband's entertainment system worked, mine didn't. We had hit a lot of rough air during time over Pacific. Would have been nice if the pilot would have given more information."
Pros: "I like that if you're willing to gate check your bag, Delta allows you to check in with Zone 1 boarding. Seats did have plugs, which is a huge plus."
Cons: "Touch screens on the in-seat TV were not sensitive enough, technology on board was somewhat outdated."
Pros: "Typical flight, all went well. Special services picked me up at the plane."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with pleasant staff. I slept most of the way."
Cons: "I was satisfied with this flight and did not experience and discomfort during it"
Pros: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"
Pros: "Sitting in middle isle, just get elbowed a lot."
Pros: "The short flight was fine. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Because we arrived to LAX from SAN so late we had to run to the next gate and barely made the flight. The overhead bins were already very full so we had to stuff our stuff at our feet. Since we arrived so late it would have been better if they had allowed those with a tight connection to disembark first."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and pleasant. Cabin crew was very kind."
Cons: "I flew on a 15 year old plane. After my excellent flight to LAS with AA, flying DL was a notable downgrade. No drinks and nuts/pretzels."
Pros: "Delta flight attendants ultimately removing the passenger."
Cons: "The man that called the mother and her son a "F***** b****"."
Pros: "Got us home super fast"
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight I've ever had"
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Cons: "Delays and ground chaos nearly caused us to miss our international connection. Gate staff unable to provide assistance with booking on connecting partner airline. Gate staff unaware of new terminal 3 to TBIT airside shuttle nearly directed us to leave domestic and requeue for international security. Will like skip Delta connectors to long haul international flights and just fly direct from SFO."
Pros: "I had a great seat (exit row) with lots of legroom. They provided a free breakfast, and it was actually pretty good. A few hours later i was hungry and tried to buy some food but the cabin crew just gave my another breakfast item. The flight arrived on time, and the luggage was delivered a few minutes after I arrived at the baggage area."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a very good experience."
Pros: "Our stewardess in the economy cabin was probably one of the best we have ever encountered. She was very courteous and personable."
Cons: "The seat was not a flatbed. It was an old fashioned first class seat but with absolutely awful knee room---possibly as little as 28-30 inches. It was very difficult for the person next to the window to get out to the aisle, even when the person in the aisle seat was not sitting there. The biz class cabin was shared with economy comfort. The crew gave no explanation for the switch in aircraft, and no apology either."
Cons: "No free meals."
Pros: "The crew was professional and efficient. This includes the ground personnel that had to cope with a grossly overbooked flight. I was upgraded to comfort+ at the gate."
Cons: "Fed up with the .4 oz pretzels. The arrival in LAX was chaotic. We had left on-time and were told that we would arrive approx. 20 minutes early. Ha! First landing attempt had to be aborted, the landing not being cleared by the control tower. Then we cruised, circling over the Ocean, and the lights of the city again. Finally we landed. Taxiing on the tarmac was interrupted many times, and took overall 30 minutes. The pilot kept informing us. I was probably not the only passenger that had and urgent need to reach a bathroom... Of course, Delta should not be blamed"
Pros: "Very easy flight & process"
Pros: "On planes with seat back displays, it was especially easy to travel with a 4 year old. Definitely appreciate the entertainment provided."
Pros: "Crew's service"
Cons: "nothing to say"
Pros: "I liked being in a lie flat seat"
Cons: "The seat, tray table and storage pouches were filthy wiht crumbs,stains, debris on my seat. A substandard experience and shows disrespect to paying customers, for whom airlines exist!"
Pros: "Same as the previous flight! Very surprised to be a head of time"
Cons: "We were very cramped in the seats. No room to move! I could not use my laptop."
Pros: "free tequuila"
Cons: "norte americano gringo scum from hell usa terrorist pigs"
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and not helpful. The checkin counter at the Sydney airport is hidden. Better signage would be helpful in locating the area"
Pros: "Delta is one of the best airlines I've flown with. Staff is very helpful, and customer service and amenities are tip notch."
Cons: "For some reason , we we did not have seat until the day we left, they ended up placing us in the back. Not that I mind sitting in the back, it was just a scary thought that we didn't have assigned seat when I bought the tickets- I remember picking my seat"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not one complaint."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, fast & efficient."
Cons: "It should have been made clearer that we had to check in at Delta & not Virgin Australian . We waited 45 min. in a holiday line we didn't have to. It was also difficult to find Delta at the Sydney airport. It was hidden in the back. We shouldn't have to wait 30 minutes for customs to open at LAX at 6 AM. I didn't like having to pay $2400 for a ticket when you dropped the price after the Paris incident & I found the same ticket would have cost me only $869. I should be reimbursed the difference. I also don't understand why we had to wait till 10:15 to sit inside the gate area. Directions for boarding should have been clearer."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and friendly. In flight television helped. Spacious and comfortable."
Pros: "On time, and direct."
Cons: "The spacing between seats has gone too far. The man in front of me caused my knees great pain when reclining."

Cons: "Not very comfortable and food are not good"
Pros: "Service, food and very clean airplane."
Cons: "We like this airline"
Pros: "I loved the free entertainment - variety, newly released music and movies, and games. Leg room wasn't bad. Food served was a nice addition."
Cons: "Seats felt worn and sloped uncomfortably, the service left more to be desired from the stewards and I'm not talking 1st class style but just being simply courteous and SMILE. Boarding took so long, they made us all leave the waiting area and rescan everything and took our water bottles - even one I just bought not 10 minutes ago, seal not even broken. All of this even though we already went through main security scanning, etc. prior to arriving to the gate."
Pros: "Speedy and timely checking, tasty free meals, friendly staff"
Cons: "we had to endure a second security check at the boarding gate -never had to do that anywhere else in the world we've traveled from. The monitor for my seat was not functioning well."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "No coffee :("
Pros: "My infant son was very grouchy and crying a lot I really appreciated how the crew tried to cheer him and offer him snacks and talk to him when they would pass by to cheer him up, it helps a struggling mommy"
Pros: "Entertainment system was pretty good"
Cons: "2-hour check-in line in Santiago, with clueless employees Further 50-min delay of the arrival time for the flight"
Cons: "The cabin is very dirty and the ear phone ad touch screen doesn't work properly"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked had to stay an extra day and take a night flight. Very disappointed"
Pros: "Nothing. I was at the airport for 5 hours, they overbooked the flight by 20 pleople. I had to get a cap voucher and call COPA for 4 hours the next day to try and get another flight. They eventually put me on an American flight."
Cons: "Everything. Poor customer service, unprofessional, and I did not get on the flight, and it took hours to rebook with them. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "It was nice to receive meals on the flights, but I didn't know I could order a vegetarian meal, so had little to eat. The plane was a newer 737 and very comfortable. We were given blankets and earbuds for the entertainment. Nice and unexpected touches."
Cons: "We spent 20 minutes after reaching the gate in LAX for a jetway to deplane. There was not only a security checkpoint in PTY transferring from David to the LAX flight, but another security checkpoint AT THE GATE! Having just overpaid $3 for a bottle of water past the 1st checkpoint, I then had to pour it out at the gate checkpoint. Nothing to indicate that there was a 2nd checkpoint with the same liquid restrictions."
Pros: "Good entertainment, decent food, it was very good all around!"
Pros: "Food was good but the amount was small. They made an effort to accimodate passangers very comfotably. Timely and corteous."
Cons: "They could ofer pellows and blanckets."
Cons: "The staff at Copa are courteous, and they helped with accomodations overnight in Panama."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "We purchased our tickets back on August to travel on November, I selected my seats at the first opportunity. We were traveling with 2 kids. Once we got to the airport, our seats were given away to someone else. They placed us on row 17 an exit row!!!! Once we got to the gate they had to reassign us to another seats, they told me we cannot all sit together. I started complaining and final placed us on row 10. After takeoff we realized the seats on this row does not recline!!!!!! We had 6 1/2 hour flight with 2 kids with NON recline-able seats. It was trip from hell.... the staff at the check in were rude, unprofessional and lied. Next, time I would not fly with an airline that can not deliver 4 seats."
Pros: "There was enough space in each row for the inside passenger to get out without disturbing the others in the row. It was great to have two free meals served."
Cons: "The second meal was not very good."
Cons: "Unfriendly flight attendants. Entertainment didn't work. Purchased two tickets but were not able to sit next to one another although we had confirmed assigned seats next to each other. For long flights, these things make a difference."
Pros: "comfortable seats ,nice and roomy. staff attentive to my needs"
Pros: "Great inflight service"
Cons: "15 minutes waiting in line for boarding"
Pros: "Service ok and pty airport efficient"
Cons: "Little space in between the seats. Would like Wi-Fi on the plane. With headed to Los Angeles"
Cons: "The most unprofessional crew I have ever encountered."
Pros: "Great airline"
Cons: "Include gluten free meals for 5+ hour flights"
Pros: "The crew was hospitable, and were all men.. It was refreshing as opposed to women who seem to be more impatient. It was a good crew."
Cons: "It smelled like urine. Perhaps one of the seats were urined on, and it just reeked. I did not like that they ran out of the only thing i could eat. I do not recall ever being asked what food allergies I have. I was unfortunately seated in the back and did not have the luxury of choosing my meal. Also, my seat would not recline on one of my flights.. the port to connect my USB did not work either."
Pros: "The internal crew at the airplane."
Cons: "I bought a duty-free bag at the Colombian airport specifically for storing liquids (namely two bottles of alcohol) and was told this was standard procedure. The bag was not to be opened until my final destination (Los Angeles). Long story short, when I arrive at the Panama airport they insist that they are going to have to throw the alcohol away despite the fact that I bought it in a duty-free zone at another airport and had not left said zone in this airport. It was also obvious the alcohol had not been tampered with as the bag I purchased was sealed tightly (some sort of glue). I had to take my son's personal carry-on (a backpack), take all of his things out of it, and check the bag as checked-in luggage. The Panaminian airport staff claimed I would still have issues in Los Angeles. They were completely wrong - no officer made any sort of comment about it since the alcohol was still in the sealed bag with a notice that said it would not be opened until the final destination. Incredibly unprofessional behavior."
Pros: "The crew was attentive, professional, and efficient."
Pros: "Timely, good food, good staff, free alcohol"
Cons: "Seat cushion too thin"
Pros: "its was very, very good. all the personal was nice. Congratulations in the future a thing fligth with copa."
Pros: "The crew was very nice onboard. Good entertainment"
Cons: "The airline personnel doing security check-in in Panama made up a TSA rule that doesn't exist and confiscated an *empty* plastic bottle from me that I was purposely saving, kinda irritating. The bathrooms were once again completely disgusting, eww."
Cons: "I liked the food but I think the second meal should have vegetables"
Pros: "Great service. Good food and drinks. Very polite."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "the crew and the food"
Pros: "Good interteiment. U atención good."
Cons: "The plane was a little old and the phones was dirty"
Pros: "How nice not to be charged for every little thing!! The food was great and plentiful. The movies were current and various. Service was excellent!"
Pros: "Not much to brag about unfortunately. Best part was that the flight was quick."
Cons: "To start, the flight was overbooked and of course groups 4-5 had to check their luggage. So frustrating. One of the attendants scanning tickets told me I had to check my bag and it wouldn't fit the standard size anyways. So ridiculous because my bag absolutely fit and meets the checked baggage size for most all planes including United/copa. She was so rude in her delivery of the information which was uncalled for. Quick flight but drink and snack service didn't get started until very late. Last 5-6 rows didn't get served. Flight attendants seemed off their game. Not super friendly, snappy, and they were very rushed. Tons of turbulence and not a lot of context given from the captain on what was going on. Happy to get off the flight safely but quickly; I wasn't a fan."
Cons: "i would not have booked seats that do not recline, my partner is claustrophobic, all other seats were taken by the time we got onboard. Why were we not informed? My partner was in restrained panic mode and crying for 6 hrs. The crew were indiferent, worst flight, out of hundreds, ive ever taken... not impressed"
Pros: "The food was OK."
Cons: "Bad customer service. I asked the flight attendants for a blanket and none response to my request and gave me no explanation.. very disappointin. When checking in online I was assigned a different seat and it took forever to get confirm.. need to improve online check in service."
Pros: "Clean and efficient"
Cons: "Lack of customer service, food (as always) was not enough for everyone in regards to choices, entertainment very simple and not up to date"
Cons: "I bought a wine and it got lost"
Cons: "The seats are so unconfortable"
Pros: "There was a flight delay longer than what my next layover was going to be. Copa rebooked me with American Airlines and got to my final destination just 40 minutes later than originally planned."
Cons: "extremely long flight again with poor service with regard to being provided basic water or other refreshments. I could not wait to get off the plane. Food was horrible and last sandwich provided was inedible. Flight boarding was delayed and we were made to go through special security checks where we had to throw out our water (took 2-3 hours before we were provided refreshments on board afterward). Boarding pass checked while in waiting area 2-3 times before even the actual boarding."
Pros: "The food was terrible and drinks only served once"
Pros: "Flight staff, food, seating, Personnal space, restrooms were clean, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Checking in at the counter and boarding the aircraft can use some polishing. The boarding process is confusing due to lack of communication to customers and faulty speaker/PA systems at LATAM gates."
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."
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and did a fantastic job with all complaints"
Cons: "Fly was delayed with out any reasonable or respectable justification. Flying from Chile with connection in Lima every piece of carry on, including purses where check again at the bording desk, wasting time and being disrespectful to the need of passenger side. Use to love flying on the past with you guys. Unfortunately the quality of services of the company are DEPLORABLE."
Pros: "The plane itself was awesome!"
Cons: "The customer service I received on the plane however was probably the worst service I've ever had and I fly a lot. From a stewardess giving me grief for requesting coke and crackers to the overall customer experience was very much lacking!"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "clean and new plane"
Cons: "delayed flight made me lose a day. My luggage got lost"
Pros: "Helpful, friendly service from LATAM employees. On-time flights."
Pros: "Good service from the crew."
Cons: "I lost my luggage (bag). I had to wait about 1 hour. Airport staff advised me to go from gate 1 to gate 11 and back to gate 1. Then advised me to go to Latam counter where I lodged a claim."
Cons: "To short connection"
Pros: "My flight was great. The attendants were professional and efficient. My daughter's flight, 3 days later 2/ LATAM was horrible"
Cons: "The attendant was rude to my daughter. She was discriminated against. During the meal pass he gave everyone else a meal and gave my daughter water and said ' You will be fine with that.' At the Lima airport the restaurant refused to serve us. If you are traveling to the Olympics and you are an American I suggest you avoid Lima. The Peruvian airport personnel don't like us and they let you know it."
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "Comfortable space! Great entertainment ! Friendly staff"
Cons: "Not many food choices"
Pros: "Smooth ride no issues, I did not have anything bad to sat - the airport was lovely"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we left late but still got there on time"
Pros: "Crew Was nice"
Cons: "Not in time. No entertainment on flight"
Pros: "Good food and staff"
Cons: "Evething was good"
Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"
Cons: "It took forever to load the plane and they overbooked a few seats. The crew was clueless about how to handle seating a nice family whose seats were taken. 20 minutes later, the crew finally got it together. Also, the sandwich sucked. Some type of cream cheese on a lousy roll. Unbelievably bad and a calorie waste; tasted like wall paste."
Pros: "Boarding was made extremely easy for the tired, seniors, and people with children."
Cons: "The crudeness of some of the Air Hostesses was appalling. The food was unpalatable and no tolerance for people who were lactose intolerant. Narrow aisles, so going to the dirty toilets needed ingenuity!"
Cons: "My wife and I had a 3 hour, 15 minute delay because of a hydraulic issue. I understand that this needed to be repaired or checked out. However, it would have been helpful to have received periodic updates from the crew about what was happening. We went for over an hour without knowing what was going to happen while we sat on the plane."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "The stop in Lima"
Pros: "Service and attention was perfection at its best."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. 787-9 makes this journey a breeze."
Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."
Pros: "I am deaf, almost 68y. Old. They insisted to escort me to the gate, I was very happy to be escorted by a beautiful young girl. I would have been a little lost had I gone through the screening by myself. The indicated gate number was changed as well."
Cons: "LAN told us our bags were coming in the next 2hrs all day & they never arrived! They were clearly telling us lies the whole time."
Cons: "Baggage fee of $150 for one extra bag, under 50 LB limit. This was the worst experience I have ever encountered. I felt gouged."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "crew and cleanliness"
Cons: "Uncomfortable spacing of seats on short flights a nightmare on long hauls. Have to assume the distance between seat and seatback ahead is now a safety issue should an emergency evac. be necessary. Had to argue over an imposed seat change despite holding a 2 hour old agent issued boarding pass. Gate agent plainly lied in claiming an equipment change was making it necessary. At start of trip (1/14), not allowed to board connection and suffered an additional 5hr. layover delay due to baggage transfer problem. No compensation of any type graciously offered for any of the inconveniences."
Pros: "A business class upgrade, lay flat bed, very comfortable. Overall wonderful, made me want to take this flight every time I travel to Chile for business."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive compared to other business class flights I've been on, especially Delta. Seemed a little rushed, felt as if I wasn't able to enjoy the business class amenities."
Pros: "The airline was very clean. The attendants were very nice. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Because of the terminal staff, I did not make this connection and had to spend the night in Santiago, and then wait for a flight to Sao Paulo and then to JFK, which added another 18 hours to my trip. This caused much inconvenience for me as I could not get home when I was supposed to. At least some of the terminal staff should have a good command of English and supervisors should be more willing to step in and help. I will try very hard NOT to fly with LAN again."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable OLD plane !!"
Pros: "The plane was fine once they boarded us and got us off the ground"
Cons: "Third time in a row we got a delay in Santiago for no apparent reason. Will find a different flight next time."
Pros: "On time, good service, great new entertainment system"
Cons: "Small cramped seats"
Pros: "Always great to be able to make the journey from Chile to North America during the day with a power outlet and plenty of space to work on my laptop. There were also plenty of movie options, and friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Somehow the travel agent inform me of the revised departure time until 3 hours before the flight, but I don't know if that's the airline's fault. The only reasons I didn't rate the entertainment as excellent was that the system never played movies on the first try. I always had to do the sequence twice."
Pros: "Food was just OK; need to be improved considering that is an intrnational flight."
Cons: "The flight was substantially delayed without a good reason, and the land personnel was not friendly when asked for explanation. For such a long flight, individual screens are necessary."
Pros: "Took great care of us, food, drinks, and very nice crew."
Cons: "If I had 18 inches between me and the seat ahead of me I would say that was generous. The seat reclined all the way back so for 3 plus hours I had the person ahead of me in my lap"
Cons: "First the check in process at Santiago airport was two hours long. They were totally understaffed and I believe they were dealing with problems of overbooking flights. The last hour in line was spent while in the front of the line while people from the back were being called ahead to check in because they were on other flights even though those flights were hours away. Secondly I preichecked in online the day before, chose a window seat, and when I checked in at the airport I was assigned a seat that did not match what I had chosen, which was also next to my partner I was flying with. There was no explanation until the gate at which point they said they changed planes and randomly reshuffled everyone's seats, after a call to the airline the customer service representative could not explain why anyone would ever say they "randomly reshuffled." The plane was overbooked so they could not accommodate my request to sit next to my partner. Finally at no point was there a warning about bringing water bought in the airport onto the plane (after security) but only upon boarding did they take the water away, some notice would have been helpful and saved a bunch of waste and money."
Cons: "Our seats were assigned, then before boarding we were call by the front table and with out any explanation the lady at the desk give us new printing boarding pass with new different seats way in the back and separate our group leaving one of my child's by himself (5years old) Unacceptable."
Pros: "See Above. Same comment."
Cons: "Same comment as for the first leg of our flight."
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive to our needs. They provided sufficient refreshments and were very professional with their service."
Cons: "1. Broken air-conditioning - The 8.5 hour flight from Santiago, Chile to Dallas, TX was extremely uncomfortable due to hot, stuffy air. The fans only circulated the body odors of those on board, and did little to dry the pools of sweat we were marinating in. Needless to say, we got negligible shut eye on the red eye. 2. Disorganized boarding - AA downsized our plane and reassigned seats to everyone so families were separated & scattered (which meant more crying babies). They waited until the last minute to assign my seat and boarding group. We were not satisfied with the new seat assignments, but were given no option to select new seats. 3. Food was over-salted and over-cooked. 4. On-board "entertainment" was "Ricky and the Flash". Enough said."
Cons: "Flight Delayed; bags delivered only 1,5 day after; small aircraft; no entertainment sYSTEM"
Pros: "Once onboard the crew and entertainment was great. The food was even edible."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We were the first foully to be bumped. The boarding and checkin process is horrible! I think that LAN can and should do a lot better."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. It has been almost 3 days and I still haven't received it."
Cons: "The long delay on the tarmack and then in the airport was horrible."
Pros: "A tiempo, tripulación amable: con una sonrisa siempre y disposición de atención a los pasajeros."
Pros: "They are very punctual and the service is pretty good. There is not too much food offered, but it is a 1h 45 min flight so everything goes very fast."
Cons: "It was a small aircraft with not too much space to rest, but it is a 1h 45 min flight so everything goes very fast.."
Pros: "The crew was amazing really nice"
Cons: "the boarding was delay awful and to be even worse, was delay from Santiago to Rio then was delay again from Rio to Miami"
Cons: "Delay 5 hr made me stress, coz have conecting flight 6 hr..running in the diairport for check in LA - Korea"
Cons: "Hot inside the plane"
Pros: "Entertaining system was good but food and service was terrible"
Cons: "Food service seats were all terrible"
Pros: "They had good movies in the plane"
Cons: "There were two runways in Mexico City and one was under maintenance so it took a long time from the moment we landed to the time we were able to get out of the plane. Then, they took our check-in luggage from the plane and it went through an inspection (bag by bag), so this caused another hour delay. After that they gave us our check-in luggage for us to take it to another location (to another floor) within the airport to be checked-in again. They wanted to charge us $20.00 additional per check-in bag even though they were half of the weight limit. After we complained, they dropped this charge. Due to all the delays we lost our connection and we had to book another flight. Not a good experience. We will never make a stop in Mexico in the future."
Cons: "The fact that we are now charged for baggage and seats similar to the economy airlines. Service is also noticeably worse."
Pros: "Best seating I've ever had flying coach on a long (8hr) flight. Boeing 787, great airplane! with the exception of the awful food, great flight."
Cons: "bad, bad food. terrible chicken dinner, even worse pasta, no salt and pepper, a bun that tasted and looked dried and tasteless, no butter."
Pros: "The flight was not crowded so had plenty of room. Entertainment was just ok."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Pasta with nothing on it."
Pros: "Everything was good, I was really impressed with the service."
Cons: "Nothing, I wouldn't change a thing about it."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, food was adequate. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Flight from SCL to Mexico City I had an awful seat, it did not decline more than an inch and was right next to the bathroom. I tried to change seats right after I checked in but was not able to and customer service could not help since I was in the 24 hour window."
Pros: "Crew was polite and attentive."
Cons: "The worst airline I've ever flown. Had to go through customs in Mexico and check my luggage also.???? I was just connecting! I would NEVER EVER fly this airline again!!! EVER! Seats are so small and uncomfortable and the bathroom so small had to maneuver so uncomfortably. Just a terrible experience."
Pros: "I loved having free food and not having to pay for my checked bag. Definitely a plus that will have me flying with Aeromexico again. The crew and staff were very nice and accommodating, so no complaints there."
Cons: "The headphone earbuds were terrible -- painful, even, and I had some trouble finding any music or movies I was interested in. The worst thing was that the layover was so long and it would be very nice to have some direct flights to Acapulco. I might be moving there, and flying through Mexico City from LAX took 13 hours from door to door, then 11 hours to return home. Not to my liking."
Cons: "We never took this flight our flight from Toluca to Gualarajara was delayed from 11:40 to 4 pm. Areomexico to ensure that we made it home sent us from Toluca to Monterry to Mexico City to LAX. longest day ever."
Pros: "The customer service was excellent! There was a slight delay but nothing detrimental. The flight was very comfortable. There was plenty of leg room. There was entertainment with movies, music, etc. We were even able to track were our flight was on a map. The small meal was perfect to hold one over a 4 hr flight. The offered a good variety of beverages and coffee. They asked often if there was anything they could do or if we needed anything else. I am very happy I chose this airline."
Pros: "The plane itself was very comfortable, didn't feel crammed in the seat. The food was decent, it made up for wasting all my time in line and not eating."
Cons: "The crew seemed fairly new and a little uncoordinated, boarding the plane and checking in also took the longest time I've had to wait, it ended up taking off late."
Cons: "No urgency when boarding plane in Mexico so we were automatically 30 min delayed. Flight was overbooked and the flight attendants chose to deal with the issue right when the plane should have been boarding. No AIr conditioning on entire journey from GDL-LAX. Sat in Tarmac for about 10 min additional without air conditioning due to no gates available for our flight."
Pros: "The service and experience were phenomenal"
Pros: "Sandwich n breakfast is good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed out of lima so missed connecting flight. Waited anothr 3 hrz."
Pros: "Actually, I was upgraded to business. So that alone made it pleasant. But the fact that the plane was new was also nice and the flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "The US staff from Aeromexico was excellent."
Cons: "the customer service outside the US was bad. And to make it even worse the representatives and staff had NO idea of any airline rules and regulations. Especially when being a platinum member in the skyteam alliance, which aeromexico is part of - the airline should try to provide quality service and not be rude, unknowledgeable and show attitude"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan. Really enjoyed the meal that they served. Other airlines offer a drink and a small bag of pretzels or a cookie. It was very nice to have a small meal. Crew and plane were top notch."
Cons: "My luggage was over the limit 3 lbs and I was not allowed to take out some of my stuff. They said I had to get out of line and take it out then back in line. It's really sad because I had waited in line for about an hour, I had been in an accident and was hurting and still had to pay because I couldn't wait in line again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very observant and offered to assist passengers even before being asked."
Cons: "The boarding process could be made more efficient."
Cons: "Terrible rude service, nobody could help me when I had all the following problems: -I didn't get the seats that where chosen and confirmed on ANY of my FOUR flights. -In my connecting flight to LA in mexico they made me go out of the connections area and re-check back in (as if I was checking in from my flight in mexico, which I had already done in Peru) and get searched again just to drop off a fragile bag. -Connecting flight to LA in Mexico they wouldn't let me take my carry on as a carry on even though it was within the size and weight, which I had carried on flight in my other three flights already with no problems. OVERALL GARBAGE"
Pros: "The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "People started to line up at the gate an hour before the flight as instructed. This is inconvenience to as it would be more comfortable to be sitting for that time. Yet the boarding process was much slower than other carriers. The crew was professional but not so friendly. The food and drinks were not served until an hour and a half after take off, half way through the flight. Food was not very good a croissant with a small piece of meat and a small slice of cheese in it. Once service began, those of us seated in the middle of the plane could not get past the carts for at least 30 minutes to use the restrooms. Overall, I expected more from the country's principle carrier."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "What i did not like is my luggage got totally damaged. Both of my handles were torn of and I had nothing but the handle to roll the luggage on the top. I'm still trying to contact the airline. My luggage was new:("
Cons: "Left late and was dirty."
Cons: "Aeromexico tried to take each penny from you. They even tried to charge me for the second connection check-in luggage for a connection flight from South America (2 check in luggage allowed). Airport is a mess, service, food are poor, crews are not as professional compared to their US counter part."
Pros: "One flight attendant was very nice the others were snobby and rude."
Cons: "I didn't like how tiny the seats were. I didn't like the choice of food. I don't like how there was no room for my bags and my seat was close to the front of the plane. An I didn't like that things In my checked bagged were broken and spilled. My bag was packed tight and padded for the breakables."
Pros: "Me encanto visitar mi país de nuevo"
Cons: "La atención es verdaderamente buena"
Pros: "extremely impressed. just wow!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "They don't let me boarding because nobody told me that I need a transition visa and the result I was lost my flight and all my money it was a lot of money at least for me"
Pros: "It was just terrible ! I will never in my life flight with Aeromexico ever again."
Cons: "It was just terrible ! I will never in my life flight with Aeromexico ever again."
Pros: "Treated like a boss. I have never flown this airline before but I was upgraded to first class... maybe because I'm mexican? Viva Mexico!"
Pros: "I will never buy a flight with Aeromexico"
Pros: "a very kind crew"
Cons: "everything on time"
Cons: "The crew and supervisor at luggage check in were absolutely terrible. They were rude, would not answer our questions, and didn't want to give us the time of day."
Cons: "They don't list gates at Mexico DF airport and don't call it over the speaker either. Our plane was delayed and they gave us zero info- until the tenth time we asked customer service and they told us it was boarding."
Pros: "Friendly crew, offered snacks and alcoholic drinks at no charge"
Cons: "Other planes were roomier... This aircraft was cramped. Flight was late leaving and late arriving."
Pros: "It is nice that food is served. Fruit is a good choice."
Cons: "Boarding and entry are terrible. They don't make any effort to get people on in an orderly way."
Pros: "Good movies and entertainment"
Cons: "All our flights were delayed. Also our flight schedule changed multiple times costing me extra money for a hotel. Unacceptable. I would avoid flying with Aeromexico at all costs in the future."
Pros: "I've flown this airline many times. This was the best! Great service flight crew excellent service, very professional and helpful. Very nice plane, think it is new. In seat entertainment and smooth comfortable flight."
Pros: "The check-in process was quick and they did give free inflight food."
Cons: "Plane was very cramp even on a paid seat. Things on the 737 were visibly dirty and items were not repaired. Seats comfort was not good at all."
Pros: "Nice crew and staff on the ground."
Pros: "The help from bogota airport was incredible They help me to get on time on my flight"
Cons: "Mexico City airport is a disaster They change the flights gate every 10 minutes they don't even know where the flight is going to get transfer Guadalajara airport same situation flights got delay over 2 hrs. No reason or why this happens was told to the passengers Also they put a small quantity in the bus to get to the plain. They keep us inside for almost 40 minutes whit out any explanation I will never get a plain ticket whit Aeromexico Also plains are not in the best shape either seat doesn't work"
Pros: "Flight crew and stewards were attentive and kind. Seat space on Boeing from LA to Mexico City was good. Ride was fairly smooth from LA to Mexico City."
Cons: "Kayak listed the ticket price at one rate, then when redirected the fees go up by another 100+ dollars! When we purchased the tickets, we were redirected to purchase through airfare.Com -- most unprofessional group I have ever dealt with! Our itinerary changed multiple times with various threatening emails that we must respond and accept new flight arrangements or else we will not have any flights and we'll be charged exhorbanaent fees. I tried cling and got reps that spoke little to no English and we're incredibly rude. We wold respond to the emails and still get more and more threstening emails. We were very concerned that any of it was legit. Kayak wanted nothing to do with it past advertising one price only to support a group that charged more. Such a scam. We had problems with the boarding passes printed. The first flight the staff was prevented from printing our tickets. They never told us why. Then for the second flight they called us to the boarding counter and required our tickets be reprinted. It was a bit of a hassle, but not earth shattering."
Pros: "When shopping for an airline to travel Lima Peru try AeroMexico. If you do not mind a connection through Mexico City AeroMexico is the one for you and price is good. Tacha and avianca airlines are also great alternatives for traveling to Peru. If you don't mind connections. For a straight flight try LAN for flying to Lima Peru they are the best."
Pros: "THAT IT LANDED"
Cons: "CHANGING PLANES AND TIMES"
Pros: "Bags were delivered very timely. Professional staff and very organized."
Pros: "The airplanes are (the new planes) are comfortable, nice, clean, have entertainment which is great. the service was just OK- The food is terrible"
Cons: "Crew wasn't pleasant"
