All good

Access to entertainment on the phone would be great!

TsA was fast and efficient. Boarding was effortless, fast. Having a new and clean plane only amplified the experience

Crew was super helpful storing my bag, seating people, etc And now they’ve started thanking their Delta frequent flyer members !! Two crew came to find me and thanked me by name

Pros: "Crew was awesome!"
Cons: "The boarding did not go on time. An announcement about why would have been nice. Still made it on the flight on time."
Pros: "Same crew and great experiments again"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you! Very safe and controlled Covid procedures. Made me feel safe."
Pros: "Very controlled and safe Covid procedures. Outlets and screens at every seat."
Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"
Cons: "Not delayed"
Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The boarding process was rough and haphazard"
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "Taxied at ORD for 45 minutes waiting for a gate to vacate."
Cons: "Smooth on time flight"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Pros: "Clean plane, the seat felt roomy. Smooth ride and the captain communicated clearly."
Cons: "It felt super hot and I wish there was food included in such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Cons: "Customs officials are incredibly un-helpful and slow. I almost missed the next flight because of how slow was that part. I hope Delta can speak up for the passengers, because we cannot express that to these rude people."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "i liked that staff and crew were very communicative and pleasant."
Cons: "one crew member didn't show up and caused delayed flight."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Cons: "The delta studio didn't work with Android 8"
Pros: "Ease of flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, seats did not recline and seats way too close together."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"

Comida

The entertainment was a bit limited considering how long of a flight we had. The crew was excellent

Pros: "Crew were present"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, terrible food not very comfortable seats... older airplane."
Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."
Pros: "see previous comments"
Cons: "Good service"
Pros: "No like"
Cons: "the will of the counter attendant of the chekin, he did not help me at all"
Cons: "Nithing"
Pros: "Crew was great. A dinner meal and full beverage service is included ....remember when the Big airlines use to??"
Cons: "Boarding was a surprise to have a security check at gate, especially when they took every ones water that was purchased in the secure area just outside of the gates!!! At least some signage about No Water bottles!!"
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."
Cons: "4.5 hour delay so connecting passengers could make the flight. Unacceptable. Maybe the airline ways 30-60 minutes, but no, Copa as a third world airline decided to make everyone wait 4-5 hours. So, rather than arriving at 11pm, we arrived at 3:15 am. Unbelievable from a Star Alliance Partner."
Cons: "Seats very small"
Cons: "Seats very small."
Pros: "The breakfast was good, warm, fruits were fresh."
Pros: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Staff friendly"
Cons: "Again food"
Pros: "copa is always on time"
Cons: "food quality is low drinks are 'rationed'"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Cons: "This airline has no concept of service. We were treated poorly by the ground personell as well as the board crew. Also, the airport in Panama is very bad. It's expensive and the food and beverage offering is limited. Avoid!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, made up for lost time"
Cons: "Very unpleasant experience with crew generally. Very surprising, given previous experiences with Copa."
Pros: "The staff are very friendly"
Cons: "Be late to my next connection"
Pros: "Great overall experience. Hassle free."
Pros: "Glad I flew with this airline. Had my doubts at first but they were all erased with this very friendly and hassle free experience."
Cons: "Lo últimos grupos deberían pasar primero."
Pros: "Direct flight to Brazil"
Cons: "Very expensive for the kind of service"
Pros: "Crew are nice people."
Cons: "Food is not pleased and not very comfortable."
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"
Pros: "I understand that international flights to the USA have extra security, but this was a joke. Anyone with a little motivation could defeat this “security.” I had an Emergency Exit seat. Nobody told me they didn’t recline. I’d rather have a normal row and be able to recline."
Pros: "Food decent. Alcoholic drinks included. Good service."
Cons: "No TVs on headrests. Sometimes not even a movie on a 5h flight??"
Pros: "Great staff and quick flight"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "The flight attendants excellent customer services"
Cons: "An item stolen from my luggage"
Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"
Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Cons: "No outlets"
Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Pros: "Flight crew were polite and good. Flight was relatively good with excellent entertainment."
Cons: "Despite early check-in, +3hours, and we checked in together; my wife and I were assigned seats that were not together. The boarding staff didn’t even mention that fact or explain why the sitting arrangement was so. It looked like she was just trying to sneak it through. I understand that many people might have pre-selected their seats online and her choices were limited, but a notification would have been nice."
Pros: "Is there anything good with copa?"
Cons: "A business class that is worse than others economy plus, small planes, limited entertainment offering"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food."
Cons: "AC in the plane didn't work on the ground (during boarding and taking off). It had been extremely hot and sweaty before we took off. Cheap earphones provide very bad quality of sound. I barely could hear anything. I had to use my personal earphones."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Cons: "Muy mal el embarque y la entrega de maleta express pésimo servicio, al embarque me hicieron entrar como si estuviera abordando y luego me hicieron esperas como si estuviera afuera esperando el llamado de mi fila en zona de embarque"
Pros: "Yes ..... but you have to pay in order to fly confirtable , they dont give you alternative!"
Cons: "Not to pay for ítems that are bebefits with Workdmember credit CARD Santander I paíd luggage and they dont return money baca even if you made the mistake"
Pros: "The flight was canceled and Latam did nothing to help get me on a new flight."
Cons: "Latam has zero customer service skills I went around and around in circles trying to get a new flight."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Pros: "Nothing"
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."
Pros: "Price was reasonable as well as ease of booking"
Cons: "Fix their flipping seating algorithm so you that family members are seated together. I will only use Latam again as the very last resort."
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "I LIKE EVERYTHING ON THE FLIGHT"
Cons: "Couldn’t check in on line"
Pros: "smooth flight, attendants were very polite"
Cons: "did not offer a bottle of water, sodas were restricted at a small cup"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "Not much. The quality of the service of lan after the merger with tam has decreased substantially"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and we missed the last flight. In the new flight they lost one bag. After 41 hours of traveling latam surely ruined our holiday memories"
Pros: "the entertainment console's on the seat backs are modern and have a lot of content."
Cons: "LATAM made me pour out all the water at the gate that I purchased on the concourse after security. they also made me throw away my food. I am very displeased that I had to throw out $15+ dollars of food and drink and that I had zero water when getting on an 11 hour flight. that's outrageous."
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "Leg room was cramped"
Pros: "Good seats and service"
Pros: "Pretty much everything other than the fact we had to return to Santiago two hours into the flight for mechanical issues. On the upside, they had a plane and crew ready to go when we returned to Santiago"
Cons: "The turn around resulting Ina five hour delay"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and enjoyable."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "Friendly crew Good entertainment options with the Latam Entertainment app"
Cons: "Boarding process not organized Seat pitch extremely tight Poor complimentary food options Flew Latam during a trip through South America and needed to change route for my wife, Latam told us we had no options and we’re forced to canceled remaining 3 flights of 2 week leg of the vacation. Terrible customer service will never fly Latam again"
Pros: "Gate crew was very nice and efficient."
Pros: "We had 3 high-school classes that traveled with us and the crew managed them extremely well (especially Luis) and made that trip unforgettable and most entertaining."
Cons: "Breakfast food was really bad; dinner food was between mediocre and ok."
Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."
Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Cons: "The space"
Pros: "El avión era un 787-9 en excelente estado y muy cómodo La tripulación muy amable"
Cons: "El snack era un croissant jamón-queso que venía casi congelado, malisimo"
Cons: "I'm still in Miami airport having spent the night here. I understand I will need to spend the night tonight in Sdantiago airport prior to going to Córdoba tomorrow. Not one apology from the airline for this debacle. Despicable"
Cons: "Seat space,"
Pros: "I have bought a ticket from To Aeroparque Jorge Newvery; and they cancelled the flight and sent me to Ezeiza without prior inform, concent and without any compensation."
Pros: "Enjoyed the large choice video possibilities."
Cons: "Too long of a layover in Lima. My screen kept popping back to restart during the video I was watching."
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Pros: "I flew business on the new airplane the Dreamliner. The experience was overall good. Very comfy plane. Slept like a baby. The food was the only bad thing I skipped both meals as it tasted like airplane food or frozen food out of a box."
Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Pros: "Despite having a high "Sapphire" status with this One World Partner and being promised "preferente" seats by the airline when I reserved seats months ago, I was unable to view the seats or check in online. Both their App and their online system were down and unavailable. We were never able to view our actual seats online. The "preferred seats" my group on 5 could not have been worse!! We were seated consistently in row 11 or the very last row of the aircraft immediately in front of the lavatory, where the seats do not recline at all and where you hear and smell the bathroom for the entire flight.. There was NO space to breathe in our seats. I have traveled on dozens of airlines and this experience and these seats were the WORST! After this happened once, I specifically asked to insure that it would not happen again and was told that seats on my next flights were good but they were the same horrible seats. Part of our itinerary was on LAN and part was on TAM, who have now combined into 1 airline, but still operate on separate systems. So LAN customer service could not see the seats for TAM flights and vice versa. Their online system reflected a changed time for our return flight from 145pm to 250pm from Rio. We verified it 3 times (even though we could not check in or view our seats because of "technical difficulties" we could see the new departure tie, and the change was confirmed by our Sheraton concierge, but when we arrived to the airport they informed us that we had arrived to late for our 145pm flight! We showed them the app that showed our flight was changed to 250pm and they could not explain the problem. We were delayed 4 hours and arrived too late for dinner in Santiago. The final 4 hour flight at 4am flight from Santiago to Lima was torture. The seat in front was literally 6 inches in front of my face when they reclined and I could not recline. It was absolute TORTURE! Avoid this airline! To add the agony, they have lost my bag and do not know where it is!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE seats with NO space and no Recline as a "preferred" clients. Impossible and inaccurate online App and check in process that was always unavailable. Unfriendly and poor customer service at check in, and inaccurate information (being told that we had good preferred seats, for example) Lost luggage still pending."
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "todo muy bien"
Pros: "Friendly crew, flew on time."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously small. I had a more comfortable seat from Charlotte to Miami than the 8 hour flight to Santiago. There should be a law against someone sitting in that type of seat for 8 hours!"
Pros: "Loading the back of the plane first."
Cons: "Canceling a flight, and not telling passengers what gate the flight is at till 2 hours before and then still switching gates. At one point the gate switched 5 minutes before boarding to the other side of the airport."
Pros: "Cabin crew excellent!"
Cons: "A little miffed by having to deboard and reboard on the outbound leg because an air conditioning problem"
Pros: "The steward/ stewardesses always great."
Cons: "Tasteless food except for the desserts."
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Late boarding, no television or personal entertainment options, food was not so good."
Cons: "Friendly staff. Took great care of my grandma"
Pros: "Staff was nice but still in an airplane not moving"
Cons: "Waiting and no contact as no cell phone or internet conection to inform hotel you are not going to arrive in time to use their room"
Cons: "To short connection"
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!"
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"

Las aeromosas conversqron todo el vuelo wue era nocturno y yo en primera fila no me dejaban dormir. Abrian el compartimento se arriba mio a cada rato y yo estaba en el asiento 1A

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Nothing everybody treated us with respect"
Pros: "The crew was really nice."
Cons: "It's shocking and disappointing that the plane was completely full. Also, the boarding process was really complicated and confusing."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable; however, I have always had great luck with the Aeromexico crew."
Cons: "The boarding process was not well executed; I know this also involves the airport. They called the various groups to board and then we stood in the ramp, closely packed, for about 20 minutes before they started loading the plane. Also, for the flight, most every seat was filled. Given the concerns regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, the close placement of passengers was concerning."
Cons: ":)"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for an hour, Mexico city federal police was there and some other teams to ask quest about if someone had approached us to hide something or if they touched us without our permission...it's was weird but this delayed the whole trip."

Cons: "Price is OK"

Pros: "Efficient and respectful staff. Treat to have wine with the pasta dish that was served."
Cons: "I am only 5'2...a short woman so the seat does not fit me . My feet can not rest on the floor and the headrest does not adjust for me. It makes for a most uncomfortable 18 hours from Lima."
Pros: "I was pretty happy with the legroom, didn't feel too cramped. Good service and on time departure / arrival"
Cons: "Food was aweful not even edible"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "Flew from Mexico City to Chicago, the fight itself was fine, the problem was that my luggage was emptied! Everything I had was taken out of my luggage, this had to happen during check in the Mexico airport. I have tried contacting Aeromexico by phone multiple times and no one has been able to help, I finally spoke with a representative who advised to email amluggage@aeromexico.com and to wait 72 hrs, have done this twice with no response. This is going on two weeks now and have not been able to resolve my issue!"
Pros: "We weren’t sure made the right decision to fly on Aeromexico to Sout America (12 hrs of flying each way). The trip could not have been better! Their service far exceeds the quality of all but a few of US-based carriers. I wouldn’t hesitate to fly again with them. In fact, I will seek them out!"

Cons: "A staff on the check-in counter requested me to show eTA of Canada. I tried to log in my e-mail account that received the eTA before. But IP address was Peru. So the e-mail service provider didn't allow me to log in. I suffered from proving that I received eTA. I had to spend much time on collecting and showing all the itineraries related to Vancouver. So I could never visit the VIP Lounge for Business Class passengers because of insufficient time.I had to go to the gate directly to avoid my flight. It was very hard time."
Pros: "Dreamliner, fast boarding."
Cons: "Few food for such a long flight. Don’t manage kid bothering other passengers."
Cons: "mexicos airport was very unorganized. specially whdn picking up our luggage"
Cons: "Lost luggage. The Aeromexico Rep at the departures desk was mildly helpful. She told me the person I need to speak to was busy and that I should go downstairs and wait by McDonald's. She said i should sit, because it could take a long time. She didn't ask my name nor tell me who I should be waiting for. Just to wait. I had to ask for the persons name I should be waiting for and if she would be wearing a AM suit. I asked if there was a desk where she would be, and with an attitude the Rep, said "I already told, you just go wait by McDonald's". After waiting for an hour and asking every woman that walked by if they were Stephanie, I finally found her. She was walking by, clearly not looking for me. I had to follow her and stop her. If not she would have walked right by. Once we spoke, she was very helpful."
Pros: "Technical difficulties"
Cons: "Waited 7 hours"
Cons: "Was late by an hour in birding. Also, was charged for checked bag, when their webpage states that one was included."
Cons: "Was over an hour late boarding. Webpage stated that one checked bad was included, but was charged anyway."
Cons: "Because They Sold My Tickets. Now I'm In The Airport Waiting For 8:17pm Flight"
Pros: "Good service On-time Friendly Great movies"
Cons: "They made me check my carry-on due to lack of space"
Pros: "On time and comfortable."
Pros: "Delay"
Cons: "Unable to make flight due to unable to leave the country because they were not getting anyone leave the city and I called to explain situation and nobody could reschedule or give me a refund . The situation was critical and out of my hands. It's unfortunate that I lost the flight and 3 Almost $300. It so sad that no one could help me with this unexpected situation."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Very courteous crew. Great service. Food was excellent. Bilingual staff and no flight delays."
Pros: "Everything was excellent except for the treatment in Mexico with aeromexico when registering my luggage, poor customer service."
Cons: "Landing was rough but then it is Mexico City"
Pros: "There was no entertainment on the plane. It would ne nice if they had wi-fi"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to entire crew not being there. Unacceptable in 2017."
Cons: "We had items stolen from two luggages. The were cell phones and the accessories plus some jewelry. These could have only been know by means of the security scans of the luggage. One item disappeared for a day. None of the other four were tapered with. I have contacted Aeromexico twice by email while in Mexico. The first time I was told someone would contact me and no one did. The second time there was no reply. I asked that some call be on my cell and I have received nothing."
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Everything is provided free of charge; food, earphones, etc."
Pros: "For a 5.5 hour flight its ok, the seats have enough space, one meal is provided and a snack. Entertainment options were ok, a couple of new movies."
Cons: "Since we get to the airplane as soon as other passengers arrive in the same plane, it is not very clean, how much can they clean it up in 15min? Also, no pillows or blankets. This was not an economy or discount airline so I dont think its acceotable."

Stuff at the airport not polite

They lost my luggage on this last flight, so I'm still waiting for their updates two days after that.

I liked the sandwich. The new seat is not very comfortable

Smooth trip

Terrible airline. Completely disorganized and incompetent check-in process. 2+ hour flight delay and total lack of communication by their staff to the passengers. I missed my connecting flight as a result and was forced to reroute to Panama through Copa airlines in order to return to Bogotá, which took almost 10 extra hours. I would never fly GOL again.

I missed it because of the delay in the other flights. Attendants in the airport sent me from one side to the other many times due to poor information.

Pros: "It was a fluid flight"
Cons: "That it wasn't late"
Cons: "If I had at least boarded the flight I could have given feedback. But I didn't get in! I spent 6 hours at the airport waiting for my flight, with check in done and missed the flight. And on my ticket I didn't have the gate number or the terminal, the goalkeeper said he would let me know when the flight was leaving, the hours passed and I didn't hear him calling me. until near the departure time I went to ask the employee and he said that the flight had left a long time ago and that the entrance was on the opposite side of where I was and they did not warn me ... now I'm here at the airport with no place to sleep, waiting for my other flight with a connection to Brasilia that leaves 6 am where I will wait for almost 12 hours to be able to get home. remembering that my flight from São Paulo to Cuiabá was 3 hours long and I will have to wait for almost 24 hours. A goalkeeper was super arrogant with me, gave me no support and even told me that if I was in the United States I would be waiting for 3 days at the airport sleeping on the floor, so it was ok."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Pros: "Aircraft look new and very clean."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour late. It would be better if they kept the flights on time specially this time of the year. They had several flights daily from São Paulo to Rio, no reason to be late. It would be better if the employees knew the rules about their work. Everything very disorganized from the gate number to the carry on allowed in the plane. I will never fly with Gol again."
Pros: "Nice crew. Okay seats."
Cons: "4 hour delay with no information. Just horrible in this day and age."
Cons: "O check in em guarulhos é péssimo e mal organizado. Mais de 40 minutos na fila, mesmo na fila do passageiro frequente."
Pros: "All great n crew very helpful"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "time was OK"
Cons: "Starting by the fact that if the system was actually working we could’ve done check in in the machine, and cut the 2 and half hours of line for check in and luggage drop off. The check in crew was not efficient at all, they would take 10 to 20 min to every costumer, no organization and poor trainin."
Pros: "I always have a good experience with Gol, the Gol Confort Seats are great, attentive crew, puncntuality."
Pros: "Space"
Pros: "Seats very comfortable with plenty of room. Crew very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The little crackers they serve taste like cardboard."
Cons: "I have not had my flight GRU - SSA because I'm stuck in Buenos Aires in Aerolíneas Argentinas Hell"
Pros: "crew was smart. very standard"
Cons: "i had issue getting checked bag from kiosk. had to speak with attendant"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I wasn’t allowed to get on the plane and gol crew members were absolutely no help. Don’t recommend for anyone."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entreteiment"
Cons: "El vuelo despegó una hora tarde, nos hicieron cambiar de avión."
Cons: "More efficient check in. Long wait at gate."
Cons: "Horrible experience. With a CONFIRMED seat with GOL airlines- and checking in two hours before flight- I was told flight was oversold and they did not have ANY seats on the plane. REBOOKED on flight from different airport two hours away! Awful!!!!!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great. Appreciated the few small extras that came with our GOL premium upgrade purchase."
Cons: "Seriously, a sandwich and some indistinguishable "dessert". Honestly, I can't tell you what the 2nd item was on the try, even after trying it. I get that the flight was only 3 hours long, but a sandwich is not dinner. And, it tasted horrible. I took 3 bites and couldn't stomach the rest. It was laughable that they offered wine with it. Had I realized this was the option, I would have brought my own food. My husband, who eats literally everything, couldn't even eat it, and it was a cheese sandwich. How hard is it to make a bad cheese sandwich? Well, apparently, GOL knows how to do it."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Nice people once you get to an agent"
Cons: "Long lines of confused people trying to figure out which is the right one for them. Need more people giving orientation as people arrive to GRU airport."
Pros: "No horário... bagagens já estavam na esteira quando chegamos"
Pros: "Traveling from JFK TO GRU. Fight got delay by 2 hrs. Arrived at GRU 8:28. Got the luggage in 20-25 mins. Run like crazy to the check in 15 min. Got there by 9:15 only to find out it’s been closed for checking bags. I beg , implore and there’s nothing to be done. Pay extra for 2 extra bags, for what? Nothing. Lost about $75 altogether non refundable. SUCKS."
Cons: "What’s to like? Because of 30 they couldn’t added mire luggage. Begging imploring it didn’t matter. Ok I didn’t like loosing $75. Who’s gonna refund? Nobody. SUCKS"
Cons: "Awfull boarding process. They didn't have system!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "I’m time quick to board food and drinks free"
Pros: "On time departure, very nice n clean interior, fast luggage delivery at CWB"
Cons: "Hardly talk n understand English"
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Pros: "Puntuality"
Cons: "space on the seats, and between the seats"
Pros: "Didn’t have to pay more for the exit row!!!"
Cons: "Acentos muito apertados."

Cons: "El idioma, tienen que hablar también en español, ya que hablan portugués e inglés."
Pros: "First time on Gol! Awesome airline!"
Pros: "Delays without advice,desaster."
Pros: "Flight on time, nice crew."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
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"
Pros: "Plane itself was fine, fairly spacious and comfortable."
Cons: "Check in São Paulo was hectic and disorganized and my bag never made it on the flight after I checked it in- was not offered any vouchers or apology. I am left without any luggage in the jungle and will have to cancel my Amazon Jungle tour as I do not have my proper equipment needed."
Pros: "Crew members were helpful"
Cons: "Food was bad and didn't taste fresh. No tea to drink either. Boarding times were usually late but arrival times were as expected. There's no entertainment at all in the planes. No screens, no movies, no nothing."
Pros: "Got me there on time"
Cons: "Charged for coffee. No in-flight entertainment, crew was not all that friendly"
Pros: "No entertainment available. No monitors on seats..."
Cons: "Flight was diverted to Rio"
