I do not recommended to anyone , besides they change my flight time couple times notifying me only through email"
Cons: "More communication needed! I was randomly relocated and searched by airport security...fine, but at least some information should be provided to husbands or traveling companions. We are seniors, my husband is not going to leave me in a foreign country . My boarding pass was taken , after the search I was told to get on the plane. My husband was provided no information until it was his turn to board ,he was panicked... The airline should communicate with traveling companions the procedure ! I am an retired airline employee, we realize that airport security is not in your hands but communication would keep family members calm. We had a wonderful time in Columbia but this does nothing good for a Country that wants more Tourism."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "fly was very good the crew very professional and good service"
Cons: "In Medellin the check in is very bad you have to stay in the line with the the people flying domestic fly.. In Miami when I received my luggage was broken and in addition we have to wait for the personal the avianca because they were in lunch time and according with a "suppervisor" they were fighting My name is Rene Gutierrez my phone number 1-305-502-2111"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Slow boarding"
Pros: "Smooth flight with ample attention."
Cons: "Boarding time was delayed without reason."
Pros: "food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"
Cons: "Really packed together seats...more room. Crew spoke very loudly on plane...jarring"
Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My reservations were messed up and I had to wait for another flight to my final destination."

Cons: "The flight attendant did not want to be there."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Cons: "Todo excelente!!!gracias!!!"
Pros: "Nice to have more room in the premium economy section."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the crew and no help when asked. I don't expect Asian-style grace and class from an American airline, but I do expect good old-fashioned American friendliness, and there wasn't even that. Also hate the all-darkened cabin in the daytime."
Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Cons: "Our brand new stroller was damaged on our flight."
Pros: "Getting to my destination."
Cons: "Leg room, more room for carry on bags, coats, etc."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Cons: "Very cramped for overseas flight Coffee is never hot, never served in timely fashion"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was fine."
Pros: "Friendly greeting and goodbye.goog entertainment."
Cons: "Too hot, attendant did not know plane."
Pros: "Best part, no one sat in the seats next to me so I got to lay down and sleep. Staff was nice, food was fine."
Cons: "This flight was good"
Cons: "They ran out of overhead space we had to check a carry on bag. My video monitor didn't work so that was disappointing."
Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."
Pros: "good job over all"
Pros: "Great service. On time departure. Early arrival"
Pros: "The ticket agents and other airport personnel were tremendously understanding and helpful! As a matter of fact, a few said this happens more often than it should, which is sad and shocking! Had it not been for their help this would have been much worse!!!"
Cons: "Our original flight included a connection that overlapped and needed to be changed. I brought this to the attention of Kayak/Aeromexico and the flight appeared to changed for our entire party of six. When we arrived to depart from Akron-Canton there were MAJOR issues with Delta acknowledging the change on their end. We waited at check-in for an hour and half before this was resolved. This also happened when we left Cancun and almost missed our flight. Our daughter also had to put on stand-by in Atlanta due to this fiasco. We spent another two hours working with Delta customer service trying to get her a seat on our flight back to Akron-Canton. Had we not been to Cancun airport extra early AND had our flight delayed in Atlanta we would have missed both flights. This was without a doubt the worse experience we have ever had!! It should have been caught and resolved before I ever had to get involved. I am very disappointed and unhappy with the service offered for the tickets we purchased. This was extremely stressful for my wife and kids and tarnished our vacation. This was totally and completely avoidable!!! You can and should do better to service your customers!!"
Pros: "On time take off."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Cons: "If we're going to be early, have a gate ready."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "As usual"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough"
Pros: "My experience with Delta was excellent. Everything from checking in, boarding, flight, and landing was simple. Everyone I came into contact with was extremely helpful and courteous."
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Loud"
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "how short a flight it was!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "I liked that the plane was newer and the box snack was really good."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"

Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."

Pros: "Good service. Kind personnel."
Cons: "No entertainment onboard"
Pros: "Although the aircraft is dated, the seating was reasonably comfortable. We were fortunate in have a row of 3 seats for the two of us on the way home which made it feel significantly more spacious than outbound. The meals were appreciated and tasty."
Cons: "The entertainment system is dated due to the age of the aircraft. However, we brought our tablets which is more than adequate. We also had back up portable chargers since there is no onboard charging. Thus, going prepared prevented any issues or concerns."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was relatively easy and smooth. Seemed to be enough overhead storage."
Cons: "Seats are super small, as are meals. 2 bathrooms for 100 passengers. If you have an older aerobus be prepared for shared screens and tops 1 movie in a 4.5hr flight. Could use more beverages."
Pros: "The crew had an attitude problem."
Cons: "Copa, lost my luggage."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Air flight attendant was rude and Had an attitude with some passengers"
Pros: "In time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Entertainment options are limited."
Pros: "Crew was great seat was v comfortable but good choices were not good .and the entertainment system was v mediocre .make sure u download something to watch on your phone prior to the flight .also u can pre-order vegetarian meals"
Cons: "food choices and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Realmente contento con el servicio del crew de Copa.recomiendo"
Cons: "Recomiendo usar Copa para todos los viajes hacia sur America......gracias."
Pros: "I was in need of a wheelchair, but seems like nobody cares. I could not go to the restroom, because the disorganization of the wheelchairs transportation. Almost lost my connection!"
Cons: "They need to be more organized and be more efficient with our disable necessities."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The crew should be bilingual, not leaving an hour late and avoiding being the 6th plane to take off"
Cons: "I didn’t know I need an app downloaded ahead of the flight in order to watch movies. They did not have seatback screens on this flight"
Pros: "Very good ride,thank you.Good attention from staff"
Pros: "Quito check was best ever. Got an exit isle."

Cons: "The foot rest on the seat was pretty poor."
Pros: "Always is on time"
Pros: "-Nice breakfast snack after takeoff -More legroom than most coach seats -Efficient crew"
Cons: "De-planing could use some improvement. People who do pre- boarding due to disability or who have small children slow down the process of others trying to get off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "effortless!"
Pros: "Fast boarding and good food service."
Cons: "The 737NG series are very uncomfortable. Additionally no IFE entertainment system nor internet."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline but I managed to sleep the first hour anyway"

Pros: "got me out of South America!"
Cons: "everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! On a long flight (5+ hours), I would expect lay-flat seats. These seats just reclined and had an elevated footrest. Not very adjustable. I probably would have been just as uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "The flight have left on time and arrived on time"
Pros: "No stops"
Cons: "Food and that they didnt project any videos or offer airplugs to listen to music"
Cons: "Plane was late in starting barely made our connection to FLL"
Pros: "The food was great!"

Cons: "Entire row was skipped over for food service"
Pros: "several meals offered"
Cons: "seemed disorganized and crowded at times"
Pros: "I got the lowest price for the dates I wanted with Copa, 2 checked bags, short layovers, and full meals on almost every leg. We had in flight entertainment, a very friendly, welcoming and attentive bilingual crew on all legs, and... basically everything I would want in a flight. My 84 year old grandmother who flies almost yearly said this was one of her best airline experiences"
Pros: "everything went well"
Pros: "We sat in business class and the service was wonderful. The flight crew was polite and professional."
Pros: "I liked the quick processing, food, and entertainment"
Cons: "My Luggage was lost and sent to Medellin, Colombia, when u arrived to Quito, Ecuador."
Cons: "They took me to another city, Copa was suppose to pay for my transportation to my final destination and I have to pay 200 dollars from my pocket, traveling almost 24 hours"
Cons: "No organization and you should not sell more tickets than you can in an air plain. Just one persone attending the counters."
Pros: "The personal was constantly there to help you out with anything. Some of them could not be so serious all the time."
Cons: "There wasn't any type of entertainment, the magazine onboard could have a crosswords puzzles, sudoku, or any other type of game. One of the male flight attendant hit me while going thru the cabin and didn't apologize, in fact he didn't turn around to say sorry."
Pros: "Service was good. They could have better choice in food. The chicken sandwich was wet and cold. Maybe offer a salad with chicken. Copa has a good connection"
Cons: "Going in to Quito. The drink was pour. Only offer once after that it was closed. Same food was offered. Again bread was soak and wet and cold."
Pros: "They gave food."
Pros: "Customer service for COPA was marvelous. They even made sure our niece flying in from Texas sat with us and the boarding pass and luggage area were super people."
Pros: "Ver y good"
Pros: "The attention at the cointer ii was good."
Cons: "It needs to be more careful in checking the laggers when there are 2 passengers. My laggers were registed with my friend name and hers with my name. And my lagged was pick to be check but it has my friend's mane. So she went down for the chequing no problem,but be careful in the future"
Pros: "Everything regarding the flight was perfectly fine, apart from the food. I really liked being able to choose my seat."
Cons: "The food made me a little ill, although it tasted okay."
Pros: "Overnight flight, they don't think of giving you an bite to eat? Really? Also since it's a flight operated by united make sure you download their app before hand or brace yourself for a boring, entertainment free flight"
Pros: "Snack was better than average"
Cons: "Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "Flight on time, easy to select sit on web page"
Cons: "No individual screens"
Pros: "the woman at the recheck counter for united Joanne ...helped me to get on an earlier flight and saved me an 8 hour layover. The woman is an angel......."
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Cons: "The food ."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight"
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: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Organization, information and communication"
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
Pros: "Good food and drinks"
Cons: "Leg room was cramped"
Pros: "Good seats and service"
Cons: "Taste of new menu"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"
Pros: "My first flight on LATAM and very impressed. Fast boarding, lots of help for an English speaking passenger in Chile, newer plane, clean, and efficient flight attendants. I'll be back!"
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "Landing was perfect!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "The cabin has garbage and it was dirty."
Cons: "The space"
Cons: "I received a confirmation email and flight information but was unable to check into my flight upon arrival and was not in their system for the flight. Very upsetting and unreliable."
Pros: "Kindness of the crew"
Cons: "Seat space,"
Pros: "clean and new plane"
Cons: "delayed flight made me lose a day. My luggage got lost"
Pros: "todo muy bien"
Pros: "The steward/ stewardesses always great."
Cons: "Tasteless food except for the desserts."
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
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"
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: "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"

Stuff at the airport not polite

It was a small plane for a seven hour flight, so it was very cramped. There was no internet access available. The seats were hard.

My flight didn’t even fly. I want a FULL REFUND.

Cons: "I never got to fly !!! I was flying to Rio de Janeiro from USA and my flight got canceled, so I never made it to Rio therefore I wasn’t able to fly to São Paulo . I called you guys and the airline to see what you could do for me . Very bad customer service considering there’s a pandemic. I understand certain flights are non refundable but during the circumstances you could’ve gave a voucher to use later but instead you tried to charge me more money to make changes when I didn’t even know when I was able to fly. To all this I lost my money and my chance to fly later . Never again I will buy anything from Kayak . You just lost a customer!!!"
Cons: "Include the luggage into the price of the ticket, Brazilian airliners often charge luggage separately."
Pros: "Crew was nice and organized, easy check-in."
Cons: "Had the last seat, so could not recline - lady in front of me had a chair that went super far back and was practically in my lap, turbulence was crazy landing!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "To be denied my flight, and no refund."
Cons: "Landed 45 min ago (with a 45 min delay) and still no luggage."
Cons: "I've flown a lot and on a lot of different airlines budget or otherwise, and in my opinion this is the worst of the lot. Poor communication at the gate improper signage for departures, unprecedented delays with constantly shifting boarding times and gates. Little to no sympathy from staff just a complete plane wreck of an airline. Would never fly again."
Pros: "Nice new plane."
Cons: "Boarding process could be better"
Pros: "Everyone smiling Check in easy Though flight was crowded it was quick"
Cons: "I had payed for an seat Gol + Conforto and one of the benefits was that the hand baggage compartment supposed to be exclusive to the people that bought this seat, so when I was entrancing into the aircraft one of the people of the GOl crew said that I’ll have to drop my baggage because the flight was full. I told that I had bought the Gol + Confort that have exclusive compartment to the hand baggage and I had showed my receive of the seat but they sayd that this benefits do not exist and took my baggage of me to drop off. It was an absurd and the worse thigh was that when I arrived at my seat, the exclusive space for my baggage was there available for my baggage and I had to drop off because the employee of the Gol didn’t know about this benefit of Gol + Confort seat and didn’t check out if really wasn’t space to my baggage"
Pros: "Nice crew. Okay seats."
Cons: "4 hour delay with no information. Just horrible in this day and age."
Pros: "O lanche foi diferente do habitual e bom."
Pros: "Este lanche da Happy Hour é um bom diferencial. Muito bom."
Cons: "Houve atraso na partida devido a uma menina desacompanhada que teve que desembarcar e pelo jeito, não por culpa dela ou dos pais e sim da companhia. Lamentável."
Cons: "O lanchinho desta vez não foi Mãe Terra (graças a Deus, pois aquilo é muito ruim), mas só tinha doce (embora bom)."
Pros: "Crew and baggage people were very nice."
Cons: "Sao Paulo to Floripa flight, did not pay for baggage. Floriap to Sao Paulo, paid 60 Real. I bought ticket through Kayak. Am 100% sure that I picked 1 bag for baggage claim. I don't understand how GOL missed that!!! It did not say on Kayak receipt. Am very angry!! Want refund of 60 Real!!!!!"
Cons: "O check in em guarulhos é péssimo e mal organizado. Mais de 40 minutos na fila, mesmo na fila do passageiro frequente."

Cons: "I have no comments to add hear, because everything went fine."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense.

Incompetent service."
