Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost 6 hours, the crew was rude and the “comfort +” seats had very little leg room ."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "No AC for an hour before takeoff - very uncomfortable. Audio for tv did not work."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a bit due to a couple passenger booking/misc issues. 1st class didn’t get gate bevfood service. Oven was busted so my meal wasn’t available. Entertainment console had all channels functional except — not really an issue I just really wanted to have ESPN playing in the background"
Pros: "Son got wings, so was happy."

Cons: "It was delayed"
Cons: "Chinese Eastern did not try to help and solve my problem."
Pros: "There was a bit of a mixup in boarding the plane but otherwise the flight was good. There was no entertainment system on this short flight.

The premium seats were very comfortable ."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not willing to go above and beyond as he stated he would. My husband asked for a coke and the flight attendant told him he could only get water."
Pros: "It was a smooth boarding, flight and exit out of the plane."
Pros: "On time departure/arrival despite weather in Atlanta. Always a fan of free messaging and choice of snacks."
Cons: "Delta needs to invest in their gate area at ORD. Understand it’s not a hub but it’s a key business/leisure destination. The MD-80s are ok for a short hop but over 1 hour unless you’re in Comfort+, it’s tight."
Pros: "Snacks, cleanliness and crew"
Cons: "From the begging they changed the flights for something totally different. It was a 14 hour trip. Awful"

Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Too cold Not friendly boarding agent"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay for no apparent reason at first (supposed mechanical issues with plane) and then waited on plane at gate for a missing pilot who never got picked up from his airport and got stuck in Chicago traffic trying to get to O'Hare. Eventually had to take pilot from another flight before leaving at 8:45 when flight was scheduled for 6:00am."
Cons: "Had a death in the family and no one would help me get back home"
Cons: "Plane was sat broken at gate and needed part to be flown in. 150 minutes delayed. Not acceptable."
Pros: "I missed my flight for the first time and I was having a complete meltdown at the check in desk until the sweetest agent said "oh no worries sweetheart, let's find you another flight back home"... It seems so simple but with the morning I had, this simple act had me in tears! The kindness and patience she showed me was amazing and definitely the reason I will always fly Delta to any and every destination they are able to take me! <3"
Cons: "I am a 5'3" 125# woman who, unfortunately, had a middle seat assignment. The passenger to my right, on the aisle, weighed approximately 375# and took up 1/3 of my seat. The arm was not able to go down comfortably, and when it did it was not usable . The passenger on my left, window seat, was probably 6'7" and had to sit with a man spread in order to fit. I could not move and was extremely uncomfortable. The plane was overbooked so I was unable to move. Therefore, worst flight ever. Plus, I paid for a full seat and was only able to occupy half of it."
Pros: "The in-flight service was good."
Cons: "Poor hospitality by alaska airline staff, especially by MrPavel at gate H4, 01nov2016, prior boarding around 0730am"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Need more entertainment"
Pros: "No hiccups, great interactions with employees, and on time (actually early). Great experience with Delta."
Cons: "I will never fly Delta again. The Staff was Rude at check-in the flight desk AND on the plane. Only a quarter of the plane was served drinks because there "wasn't enough time" due to the fight attendants being to busy with their own conversations to be bothered with us. I've made the same flight with Southwest and they never have a problem serving everyone. Terrible, Terrible, Terrible."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and my seat was ripped. All of the seat stuffing was spilling out and got all over me."
Cons: "traveling with my wife.....checking in as soon as allowed and not being allowed pre assigned seats so we were split into center seat and last row..............I expect better as a customer"
Cons: "It was cancelled with little explanation from the airlines or airport. And with little help afterwards."
Pros: "They have most of the boxes checked, but none of it matters if your knees are getting crushed, and then the person in front of you puts the seat back and nearly breaks them."
Cons: "The first leg of the flight, from DC to Lima, was fine. But from Lima to Cuzco, I was in agony. My knees were already tightly pressed to the seat in front of me when I sat down, and as soon as the man in front of me put his chair back, it folded my legs down and to the side in an exceptionally painful way. I got to sit like that for hours. The man next to me was also tall, so he got to experience the same kind of pain when the woman in front of him put her chair back. I am going to skip that leg on the way back and just fly out of Lima."
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Pros: "everything so much better than air colombia"
Cons: "They flight got delayed by 2 hours, but not in advanced. After we arrived at the airport and checked in, they apparently had issues with the plane so they had to find a different one, and then we sat waiting in the new plane until they got approved to flight, which took a long time."
Cons: "Not enough ice for drinks."
Pros: "Nice Airbus A319 aircraft."
Cons: "The machines to check in weren't working, so we had to do a long line to check in, when we got to the counter (an hour before the flight) they had already sold our seats! Then they put us on a waiting list for two other flights and apparently each of those was full. After all this we were told that they could only put us on a waiting list for the following day, at this point we purchased a flight with another airline (Avianca) and left. The people on the LAN counter don't have the disposition to help and are quick to disregard and client issues. Will never flight with them again."
Pros: "Comfortable airplane, newer than many domestic flights in the U.S. Efficient boarding, friendly staff."
Cons: "Could have used more water on a flight to Cusco."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Had to switch planes, flight was delayed almost 3 hours"
Cons: "Terrible airline and airport system... the boarding system is a disaster... after waiting in line for so long they send you to different counters to pay for bags... on top of that they didn’t check in one of the 6 in my group by the attendant’s mistake and they closed the flight in us...there is a bussing system that “takes you to the plane” and when we finally made it to our gate the bus made their last of the 2 trips to the plane. So we lost our flight to Cusco and ruined our entire first day of touring in Cusco..... your system or multiple check in/ cashier/customer service counters is a disaster and it makes zero sense. I will NOT fly latam again."
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Pros: "The seats and plane were comfortable"
Cons: "Baggage options were not indicated properly on the travel agent ticket, nor during check-in"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Didn’t have any options for drinks for purchase. Had one beer for sale and it was room temp"
Cons: "The email we received with our reservation it included a personal belonging and carry on, however at the counter they said in their system it was not registered like that and even though we showed them the confirmation email, they charged us for the carry on."
Pros: "the good treatment of the staff"
Cons: "the flight schedule at dawn is usually a bit tired"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable and cramped."
Pros: "Crew were amazing and helpful."
Cons: "El vuelo se atrasó 1 hora y media no comunicaron y cuando llame me indican mal tiempo pero conforme que no había mal tiempo.. no estoy satisfecha con LATAM"
Cons: "I traveled with LATAM from USA to Lima however from Lim to Cusco was terrible. I was told st check in that there were no more seats left on the flight. I was told it’s legal for them to sell more tickets than seats and there is nothing they could do but place me in the next available in flight ~4hrs"
Pros: "Other legs of flight were worse."
Cons: "There was no free food."
Cons: "The Latam check in person charged me $30.00 USA,for my check in bag even though my reservation says 1 carry on and 1 check in. This is not right , you guys can check this information. Maybe I have to look for a different web site for service."
Pros: "On time, good crew"
Cons: "Plane was older than most"
Pros: "The plane has a huge leg room space, the chairs are very comfy."
Cons: "The check-in and the baggage drop process in the counter is absolutely slow, as well as the boarding process. I wasn't able to do the check in online."
Pros: "We did not crash"
Cons: "I was bumped from an earlier flight to a later flight with no notification"
Cons: "My luggage was delayed on the previous leg of trip, so I didn't have it on arrival in Cusco. Also, after booking I was unable to modify the reservation to add 1 checked bag, so I had to pay a large fee at the airport."
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was efficient. I’ve never been on a flight where they board window seats first, then middle, then aisle. I can see how that makes a lot of sense and makes the process better."
Cons: "I wasn’t sure why my small rolling luggage was being tagged and told to be left at the gate. Others had their rolling pieces brought onto the plane and there was enough room, so I was a little worried about if someone was going through it or if it would make it to the destination. It did show up."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No transfer ability between domestic connections, even on same airline."
Pros: "Comfortable and friendly crew"
Cons: "Lower price."
Cons: "In my last connection in Santiago airport I was asked to pickup my luggage and do check-in again and all of this in a 1 hour and 20 minutes connection, when I arrived to the check-in desk at first they said that I was late and needed to be there 2 hours ago, just after argueing they let my pass"
Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"
Cons: "Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about."
Pros: "All confortable"
Cons: "Turn down the light"
Pros: "Great crew and competent pilots! We arrived safe and on time - always a big plus"
Cons: "Seats, as in so many planes, were cramped and small for larger people."
Pros: "Low prices"
Cons: "Boarding process to chaotic and slow"
Pros: "Good entertainment and food. Cozy flight with quick boarding."
Cons: "Seats aren't very comfortable. That is the normal for pretty much every flight I have ever been on though."
Cons: "Was delay 2 hours and they tell us 3 hours before the dlight"
Pros: "everything was good"
Pros: "Muy amable la tripuñacion"
Cons: "El abordaje fue algo lento y desordenado."
Cons: "Delayed more than 4 hours and I couldn’t get to my next connections. And they didn’t give us a good solution and they gaved me wrong advice and at the end they wasn’t successful on assisting any request that you did"
Pros: "Servicio de entretenimiento"
Cons: "Un vuelo se demoro SIETE VECES mas tiempo, es una tortura estar encerrado siete horas perdiendo el tiempo en un avión PEOR si es que nos dicen que no se puede aterrizar por mal clima y otras aerolíneas si llegan al destino, la verdad ahora si prefiero viajar por LCPeru, Star, AVIANCA, Viva Air porque si no hay diferencia en el servicio pues pago algo menos, no vale la pena seguir trabajando con LATAM"
Pros: "Que sean transparentes y velen por los usuarios, tranquilamente pueden enviarnos en otro avión o enviarnos en otra aerolinea de otra empresa del grupo"
Cons: "La cancelación de mi vuelo"
Pros: "Flight attendants."
Cons: "To go through security again in Lima to Miami in spite that we just came from another plane."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "Having to download an app to have access to the entertainment was a big inconvenience."
Cons: "Llegue a tiempo, justo 1hora y media antes de la salida, y aun ya hecho el checking online, no me dejaron subir al avion. Cuando fui al counter de latam, esos rateros, me cobraron 30us para ponerme en el siguiente vuelo, el cual muy bonito, se retraso 3 HORAS sin dar una razon! Y adivinen que? Pues no me devolveran nada, ni mucho menos mi tiempo. Latam es una porqueria...."
Pros: "We arrived safely, there was no major problems and the crew was great."
Cons: "They changed my flight without previous notice to an earlier one, it was for around 20 min earlier but still they should send you a notice. Now they charge you for everything you eat, before they gave you a little snack. Also, there's traffic on both airports so that's something unpleasant too."
Pros: "Flight was on time; crew professional."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and this was very distressing to be in a foreign country without my belongings. I was without clothing and personal items for more than 24 hours. I find this unacceptable."
