Pros: "Loved all the support and attention from the crew"

Pros: "I really love how friendly the crew was! The seats were also very comfortable for a plane. I couldn’t get over how there were cameras to look at outside of the plane for those who didn’t have window seats as it helped with some landing anxiety. The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."
Cons: "Unfortunately, boarding was a bit confusing as the crew members spoke a majority of Portuguese and translated only very few times. I had to ask a crew memeber when I would board."

Pros: "There's actually footrests that fold out like a lawn chair in economy and there's lots of leg room so you can actually put your legs up and sleep. First time I ACTUALLY slept on a long haul flight. Chairs seemed to be made of soft leather or some other super comfy material. Puts the older US-based planes to absolute shame. Super soft fluffy blankets, the flight attendants were amazing, courteous, hospitable, the food and drinks were awesome, loved the movies. 10/10 would fly again."

Pros: "Overall excellent trip"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "economy xtra seats were nice"

Cons: "The food is extremely unhealthy."

Cons: "The arrogant employees at Gov. Valadares didnt tell me they were sending me to another airport making me miss my conection flight in the process. This information was disclosed only after I asked if the flight was on time because I had a international flight to catch at my final destination Sao Paulo - GRU. Instead of helping and apologizing for the hassle, the attendant said that I had to pay for my carry-on (that was 10kg) because I had another hand bag with my laptop in it. I said that I would not pay, and that Azul should return me money first for not delivering the service I purchase - which was the flight from Governador Valadares, MG to Sao Paulo, SP (with a quick stop in Belo Horizonte, MG). Instead they were making me miss my international flight, and besides not taking any responsibility for it, this woman is telling me that I had to pay for a carry on?!? I was mesmirized by the lack of sense of this flight attendant. After telling me that I was going to get in Sao Paulo at 9pm instead of 5pm, and that I would have to run to get a bus to another terminal and hopefully make it to my international flight that was at 10:20pm, she insisted I’d pay. I told her that if she could get me to my destination at 5pm maybe I wouldn’t mind paying, but since that wasn’t the case, and I’d have to run to try to catch another flight because of Azul Airlines, that she should really think about it and let it go, and let me go with my bag as a carry on. She gave me the ticket, and as I grabbed my bag and went towards the bus, she threatened me, saying that in Ipatinga and in Belo Horizonte (my first conection flight) they would not allow me on the plane with the carry on. Since the non-sense continued I just took her as a mentally disable person, and ignored her threat. A full bus and 2 vans headed to Ipatinga (100km away in a dangerous highway), packing the flight there, really making me think that this non-sense was just a way Azul Airlines figured out to save money in fuel. The flight was completely full, the AC not working properly, and with the heat and humidity people were smelly. It was absolutely awful. The flight attendants in Ipatinga (way nicer than the ones in Gov. Valadares), distributed water to the passengers that looked like they were about to faint, the ones sweating profusely, the elderly and the kids. By the way, the carry on bag was not an issue at the other airports. Once in Belo Horizonte I noticed that my original Azul flight from Belo Horizonte to Sao Paulo at 3:30pm as 1 hour and 15 minutes LATE. I run to the gate and explained what happened and after crying out loud was able to convince the Azul attendants to let me in on that flight so I wouldn’t miss my international flight. They made me wait until last minute but I cried: this is the flight I had a ticket for. It’s only fair you let me in! So they did. And I made my other flight. But not before I got upset, had a headache, stomach ache and felt demoralized by Azul staff."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Azul had a mechanical problem with the plane. It took them 6h to fix it. They made us wait for 6h which made mmost of the people lose their connection flight but azul voided to help anyone! Said that they couldnt be responsible if you lost your connection because My connection flight wasnt with them! I had the worse6h of waiting and trying to have someone helping me. All of Azul’s staff are incompetent laZy workers!"

They proceeded to tell us that our only option was to stay the night and take another flight the next day. Us and 10 other people had to get into an argument with the staff in order for something to be done. After begging, they finally said they would put us on an earlier flight the following morning and they put us in a hotel. The staff did not care about us or our missed flight/wasted money that we paid for the hotel at our destination that night. It took 30 minutes for a manager to give us the time of day. Horrible experience. It's really shocking that this is how the company treats its customers."

The day of, there was a 2hr delay so we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok. Drink selection was mediocre. Very limited TV and movie selection. Probably should have stuck with my instincts to fly with a larger carrier."

Cons: "Unprofessional, poor customer service and everything else in between."

Cons: "THE FLY WAS CANCEL.."

Pros: "Not using Kayak, Avianca or Allianz ever again. There’s no accountability for anything."
Cons: "They managed to break my guitar case and leave me stranded in Colombia without a refund. Ended up having to buy a $800 return ticket with Jetblue."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seating, poor service. I asked for and extra cup of water and they said no! I mean it's a 6 hour flight and we took the red eye. I would expect to atleast have drinks. Overall staff was very rude. Service was very poor and slow. Plus the seating is extremely uncomfortable no leg room no offer to up sell first class. Terrible flight company would never use again or recommend ever! Stay away there are plenty of other ways to get to Colombia. One positive is they did have a decent movie selection honestly that's the only thing. Other then that this company does not even deserve one star I will make sure to tell all my friends family and social media to never use this company"

Cons: "I usually don't fly from JFK. The food court was expensive (18 dollars base price from a burger seems a high even for an airport. I don't fly from NY normally - so maybe I need to tune my expectation for the locale, and it may have NOTHING to do with the airline company."

Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."

Pros: "It's nice to be theoretically in zone 2"
Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No Internet connection at tocumen airport"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "For the price, it was an incredible deal. Not fancy but kind flight attendants, standard economy class (meaning, as bad as all the others for space, definitely not the worst Ive flown, much better than cheap european airlines), had an on time connection in Panama... I would definitely fly again. I speak Spanish but all Copa staff speak English, so it was really easy."

And the luggage took 45 minutes to arrive at the carousel"

Pros: "Short plane ride"
Cons: "Second plane from panama to Costa Rica, the crew embarressed me and my friend and I will never fly on that airline again if Sandie Machida ever works on it. She is the ruddiest and most unprofessional flight attendant and needs extra lessons on costumer service and how she hosts guests."

Cons: "when we got to the airport, we were told we had NO TICKET!!!"

Pros: "I loved the food and the flight attendants' customer service. It was awesome and they were very nice."
Cons: "That I almost was left without food because the flight attendant passed by me because I was sleeping . Although it my fault because it's not fair to wake a passages up. But for food I think it is fair."

Pros: "Wifi"

Pros: "they had a vegetarian meal for me :)"

Cons: "they don;t let her board they saying ticket is not confirm and we have itnerery with all confirmation and we lives in belize from belize to cancun in bus 8 hours .so overall very unconvinence"

Pros: "Utencils were metal, which means you guys are eco friendly. The unsuccesfull web check in made it faster for me to do the front fesk check in."
Cons: "The two times I try to do check in with COPA, NEVER allows me choose my seat. The reasult, bad seats where I really feel uncomfortable, next to the restrooms where all the smells and noise is. No blanquets for a 5 hour overnight, reasult a cold flight. Mmm not nice at all if your flight is at 2 AM."

Cons: "Two suitcases were lost"

Pros: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."

Cons: "No complaints, good airline, good service, good staff"

Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."

Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."
Cons: "Having more student deals."

Cons: "English speaking staff."

Pros: "the crew was not friendly on boarding, or during the trip. I like it when they great you and say welcome aboard."
Cons: "long long line at check in... long line at the TSA late getting to the gate. Flight left an hour late did not meet my connecting fight no help in SP no ground crew for directions. long long line at customs then long line to rebook flight had a 7 hour layover in SP before Rio."

Cons: "All is perfect"

Pros: "The fly time"
Cons: "The check in process, too slow ,we waist almost 2hrs in the process"

Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"

Cons: "I like everything. No complain!"

Cons: "Person behind my seat was kiking! Luggage took for ever to be deliver."

Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."

Cons: "Delayed 5h, missed all connections, no help from crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "In flight entertainment system was pretty good and boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "Latam needs to rethink seating in the airbus. I’m 5’2 and I felt completely cramped. Did not have room to bend down for under seat carryon, comfortable exit isle to use restrooms, and definitely could not sleep. Very long flight to be in such cramped conditions."

Pros: "The comfort of the new Sears at economy-a class"

Pros: "The airline and travel agency never informed me that this flight was cancelled. I almost got stuck at JFK."
Cons: "Everything about the airline and the travel agency since they never took the time to inform me that it was cancelled."

Cons: "Aeronave muito velha, parecia que ia desmontar no ar."

Pros: "Aircraft was superb."
Cons: "Communication arr as y was too busy. Too much going on around me."

Cons: "Lost my bags"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Paid for an extra leg-room seat months before the flight. When I checked in days before, I find they have sold that seat to someone else. The schedule of the flight had changed and for that reason (?!?!) my reserved and paid for seat was not carried over!!"

Pros: "The fact that I made it to my destination and Home safetly."
Cons: "The service is terrible . They lose bags , the planes are dirty, you can still see head grease on the windows and old dried up food on the seat backs. We were delayed 40 minutes. No annoucement or notification . The staff are rude , and don’t care . Very unreliable airline - the food is disgusting."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."

Pros: "I enjoyed Everything except the layover"
Cons: "My 3 Hour layover was extended to Nine hours. The Peruvian airport offered me a hotel room i turned down. Peruvian gentleman on the plane just prior to landing was telling me how dangerous it is in Peru in the area surrounding the airport. I was given four hours of wifi coupons and coupons to a breakfast and lunch at a restaurant by our gate, where i was waited on poorly. Next time i may look for a layover in Florida."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"

Pros: "Staff and service was great"

Pros: "It was not physically uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, moved, and when it finally took off it was re routed back to São Paulo with almost zero communication. We were herded around with attendants who had no idea why our flight was canceled mid air and we had to fend for ourselves for rebooking."

Pros: "All of your staff where very nice and kind."

Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."

Cons: "Too small seating space"

Pros: "The service on board is very good.when you have a business customer service is almost everything."

Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Service was good... brought me a second meal after first dinner wasn't filling enough. Excellent entertainment system with tons of new hit movies I wanted to watch"

Pros: "The customer service"
Cons: "Delays on boarding which resulted in 1hr delay at arrival"

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Boarding disorganized. Seats cramped. Food poor. I travel to Latin America often and Latam was a pleasure. Now they are money grubbing profiteers like all the others. What a shame."

Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."

Pros: "Every employee is super helpful and the airline is family friendly. Airplanes are always new and clean. The meals are always good as far as airplane food goes. They have a generous baggage policy and unlike other airlines the airport departure tax is included in the fare. They serve the customers unlike the domestic airlines."
Cons: "Overhead bins on the inside rows are a bit on the small side."

Pros: "Super-friendly staff. Thanks!"
Cons: "Crying baby next to me! (not the airlines fault though haha!)"

Pros: "Worst latam lost 4 loggages of my parents John f Kennedy New York to Trujillo - Peru 09-09-16 Flight B6212905- B6212906 Inga Inga Sanchez, Rita Rojas Malqui, victor Contact phone 7035658509"

Pros: "The inflight service and assistance provided by Teresita Torres"

Pros: "The plane was super clean comfortable and with good entertainment, food was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the plane wasn't there at time, those things happen and it's fine but they never told us what was happening. we had to wait in line for another hour, without any announcement."

Cons: "Confort, sits to small"

Pros: "Collection of movies, and flight being ontime"

Pros: "Brand new Dreamliner! Plenty of legroom in economy"

Pros: "Nothing stewardess mskstewardess"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "I flew LAN many years ago and remembered this flight to be a lot better than it was this time around. The seats barely recline and in Economy leg room is comparable to AA flights going to South America (which is pretty bad). Forget about sleeping. I had some hopes for the food but it disappointed too. Breakfast, for example, was essentially a warm sandwich with a paper thin layer of ham and cheese. They stuff you with bread. Had a much better experience flying sister company TAM."

Pros: "It was amazinggg! Will travel again"
Cons: "Liked everything"
