The flight was late so my connecting flight I missed to Curitiba, they couldn’t hold the flight for five freaking minutes while I ran across the airport I’m 64 years old but that’s OK I made accommodations and got me on another flight six hours freaking later

I have some pictures to prove it , my flight from SP to Fort Lauderdale I could not sleep at all. Not only me but the passenger in front of me . The seat was broken, where you rest your head it was falling apart, I tried to put it back but kept falling. The flight attendant tried once and gave up . I asked to change seats and they did not let me do . I had to fly basically straight all night , I could not rest my head on the seat. Never again with this company

Cons: "I am 6'4" tall. I love/need leg room. On the flight from Orlando to Sao Paulo, I purchased an exit row seat. It has the best leg room. On my return flight from Sao Paulo to Orlando, I again purchased an exit row, at the desk with an Azul person. However, when I was onboard, sitting in my purchased exit row, one of the flight personnel began creating a stir with the other flight attendants about me sitting there. Their English-speaking ability was almost none. They asked for my passport, and I didn't understand why, because I had passed all of the official reviews with it, and at the desk when I purchased the exit row seat. There was a "heated" discussion amongst all the flight attendants looking at my passport. It was returned to me, without explanation, but then later, prior to the flight leaving, they sent another flight attendant, who had very limited English-speaking ability, to tell me I could not sit in an exit row, because I was too old. I am in my 60's, they said. I am in excellent shape and could easily perform any physical requirements called upon by someone sitting in any exit row. I tried to tell the flight attendant that I had purchased the exit row seat, but he insisted I move to another seat, so not wanting to create a regrettable incident, I moved to a cramped seat elsewhere on the plane. I will NEVER fly on Azul airlines again, and will tell everyone else about how they poorly deal with English-speaking, older customers. They never offered to refund what I had paid."

Pros: "The crew, and the service was great!"

When initially assigned my son, it said: "No one under 2 is allowed to seat in emergency seats" a bit misleading and inconvenient. Other than this we had a great experience."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "I don’t even know how and where to start.. Avianca has given me issues in the past and I have decided a few more times to give them a chance. Avianca has a culture of rude and “take advantage of people” culture. I went through hell on my last flight. Left us on our connection flight in Cali, Colombia made us (15 passengers) wait for our bus we all had to pickup and carry our luggage’s out to the streets rcause they don’t have enough money to pay for a cart when we were actually in that situation because for them. Next day we were transported (they show up 2 hours later from the promised time) we were transported to the airport to actually catch a flight to another different city to then arrive wait 4 more hours to catch a plane to our final destination... a 3 hours and 45 minutes flight from Miami turned into a 4 different city, hotel and nightmare, luggage’s were broke and everybody turned out to be rude rude rude rude!!!!!!... I am still waiting for my $200 promised Boucher. This is my last time flying with AVIANCA. I am a frequent flyer and have made the decision to fly AA from now On... Actually just purchased a ticket which was actually $100 more than Avianca... nothing like great service and respect towards your clients... I’m also making sure NOBODY flys with AVIANCA."

Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Good airplane and service"
Cons: "Avianca charged my account twice for the cost of the ticket, now the bank says I have to talk to Avianca and Avianca says I have to talk to the bank.

All staff very friendly and accommodating

Internet access was much better than non-existent American Airlines. Need higher speed, to watch entertainment on our phone would have been great!

After a delay, the flight departed and it was a smooth flight. Good service from the flight crew and we arrived home nearly on time.

Seats were surprisingly comfortable for an economy ticket. Leather, plush, with good cushioning. Decent leg room. Takeoff and landing were on time. Recommend.

Thank you.

Sprinting through the airport with all luggage only to be told I couldon't not board even though the flight did not leave for 5 more minutes"
Cons: "Everything was great"

I like that I have the whole line for me; didn’t have passengers seated next to me Could improve the service on board, like food could be served a little warm instead of a cold sandwich and offer more than a round of sotf drinks

Food was great

VERY inefficient check in process at MIA. As a preferred silver connect miles member, could not get into the preferred members line. When I finally got to the counter the clerk told he had to go to the gate and that I needed to get back to the line. Barely made the flight. Outrageous

I liked the attention at the counter and on board. Everything happened in an orderly manner. I flew with COPA in May. From Panama I flew on Thursday. I returned from Miami on a Sunday. The flight from Panama to Miami then was wonderful, but returning from Miami at the counter and boarding was a complete disaster. The operator at the counter was rude and apathetic. Because of the disorder to board we lost our spot to take off and we’re grounded for an hour. This time both ways were outstanding! I hope they continue to improve and show the same good service on weekends than the one during week days! Thank you!

Cons: "So, because I was 3 mins late to the gate, they made me spend another $320 for a fligh next day. I'm still in Panama city. Its unbelievable how the plane is still there, with the corridor that takes the passengers to the plane still attached to it, and they can look me straight in he face and tell me they cant reopen the door. While I'm stressfully paying an extra $320 and knowing I'm going to lose 1 whole day of my vacation in Rio because of one little detail that could be solved by opening the door and letting me in, I see the plane there sitting in the same spot for another 15-20 mins without moving.

Cons: "The airport personnel did not help me with adding my miles to my Cops Cinbect card, they said it was no value and that Cops Connect membership want Copa, Worse they broke my expensive Nautica luggage by losing a wheel and my luggage was not even 22 kilos"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Imformation spoken to fast and completely clear"
Pros: "la puntualidad y el buna atención."
Pros: "On time and did not lose my luggage"
Pros: "It was a good trip.. Thanks!!"
Cons: "I've flown Copa many times before and it's generally good for low-cost price but this time was horrible, probably because our first time with new baby. First, there was unexpected shock of having to pay $300 at gate for ticket for the baby, even though she is 4 months and sat on my lap the whole time. Never heard of charging for that and we had to pay % of roundtrip ticket cost right there and then. Second, they don't allow early boarding for families with small children. Third, and finally, on the trip back they also suddenly announced a "no checking boxes policy" which I had also never heard of. We had to take a baby swing out of its box, dismantle it, and carry on a large part of it. A total hassle and crew was not very understanding. Definitely think twice about flying Copa if you have kids."

1 hour or more delay

This was my first flight with LATAM, and I loved it! After not being able to reach my final destination on Spirit Airlines, I booked a ticket with LATAM. I unknowingly booked a first class ticket, but I was not disappointed! I had never been in first class, and I was so impressed with the flight attendant politeness and attentiveness, meal service, spaciousness, comfort, and window views. I would like to fly them again!

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, and the food was the best I've had on a plane trip."
Cons: "Everything!"
Cons: "Latam could be better if permit that customer can change the sit at check in."
Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew; very efficient and timely boarding; surprisingly good meals"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice."
Cons: "It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere."
Cons: "Nothing. All excelent"
Cons: "No food just a cookie"
Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"
Cons: "premium seats should be more comfortable as advertised. On line services (extremely poorly designed and disfunctional website)"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Good service and food though the items on the food tray were just the meal and a dessert snack. Other airlines have food trays with salad, fruit, the entree and a snack dessert. But as long as we get there safe and sound I am ok."
Cons: "Boarding process in Miami was chaotic. Started late as the crew reported late to the flight. Nobody knew what's going on until the gate agents made an announcement that the crew was reporting late. We departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "Entertainment and extra seats everywhere"
Pros: "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!"
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!"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight, made no effort to get me home and didn’t reimburse me for my hotel when I had to stay in Iquitos."
Pros: "it was a very nice and pleasant trip!"
Cons: "Impossibly short connection time to get across the whole airport"
Pros: "entertainment and flight attendant"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "I slept most of the flight."
Pros: "Great Staff. Beautiful plane"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving Miami and then some more arriving in Bogota. I understand this isnt the airline's fault"
Pros: "Food is good. Customer service is great."
Cons: "They didnt put movies."
Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"
Pros: "It was a new plane, the pilot waited for our bags to be put into the plane. Because we made it to the plane after they had loaded everyone. This was due to our late arrival From our Delayed connection from Washington."
Cons: "At our arrival a couple had taken our seats. The flight attendant told us to get on any other seat available. We had our family (the three of us ) spread out in the plane. I had to ask another attendant to please ask for our seats back. Finally after a while we got them back but it wasn't a Pleasant experience. They didn't have enough headphones to give everyone. My son and I had to share one headphone. The food was really bad for an international flight, Not even the wine was given without paying for it"
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "Had pillows and blankets"
Cons: "TV monitor did not work They asked if I would like something to drink I asked for a Coke and they said they didn't have any on the bevrage truck twenty minutes later I received the coke"
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Comida, al llegar a mi ya no habían opciones."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."
Pros: "In-air service was excellent. My international flight was very smooth, flight attendants were kind and attentive, food and drink was provided free of charge, and onboard entertainment was available for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "It helps to be flexible when booking with LATAM, as my return flight itinerary was changed several times before being finalized."
Pros: "nice space in business. Great airline !"
Cons: "the meal I chose was too small. I landed in Bogota hungry. But it was my fault"
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Cons: "We waited over an hour at the baggage claim carousel to collect our luggage. We received no communication or announcement about what was going on. Unnecessarily appalling customer service."
Cons: "They auto rescheduled my flight to Washington since we arrived in Miami late. They failed to emphasis that the flight that left 90 minutes later was going to a different Washington airport."
Pros: "The newer planes with full video made travelling nice"
Cons: "Legroom was a little tight"
Pros: "This was the last leg of a very long trip. It went great and the whole trip went as planned. Highly recommend LATAm and American."
Pros: "muy amables"
Cons: "tuve problemas para hacer el check in on line por problemas con el sistema y tuve que hacerlo por teléfono. No conseguí los asientos que hubiera querido. Los que están en tránsito deberían permitirles bajar del avión antes para poder llegar en hora al otro vuelo. Sugiero que la tripulación informe a los pasajeros en tránsito sobre dónde dirigirse según el vuelo siguiente"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"
Cons: "Waiting in long lines in Miami to check in, over an hour. And then they let other passengers who came late for their flight go in front of me. At that point I thought that would be the first and last time I travel Latam."
Cons: "1 hour delay....., without explanations-"
Pros: "The flight was fine, as far as being on time, more or less comfortable, etc."
Cons: "You have to pay for food. Being expensive, you go hungry. They gave free soda."
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Cons: "I have a very bad experience. The first flight was delayed, so many people including me missed the connecting flight. They kept us till 2AM at the airport and made us take out all our luggage before taking us to a hotel. Then, there was a Flight leaving the same day at noon, but instead of acommodating us there, they made us wait till 11:59 PM for the next flight. They told us that it was a direct flight as it was initially scheduled from Lima to La Paz, but that was not true as we had to stop in Santa Cruz first. To sum up, there was a 28-hour delay in total. I was supposed to get to La Paz on Jan. 28 and ended up arriving on the 29. No explanations were given, but it is clear that they oversold as all flights were full. Avoid this airline if you can."
Pros: "Having a vegetarian option"
Cons: "No salad?! Fruit or vegetable! Something was missing."
Pros: "Flight was on time and the crew was polite"
Cons: "I didnt understand the reason of serving food at 3am when the departure time is 1:05 am. And passengers already had dinner. The lights in the cabin were not turned off until after the meal was completed, around 4:30am. It would make a lot more sense to serve breakfast instead of dinner. By the time we landed at 6:10 am, nobody had time to sleep but one hour."
Pros: "The flight was excellent"
