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: "I had to pay for everything. only the water was for free. No, of course I had to pay for that on the ticket plane."

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"
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!!"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"
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."
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: "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: "Captain always give us information during the flight because weather condtions were rude"
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."
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: "Lost baggage. !!!!"
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."
Cons: "There was a huge delay for mopre than two hours"
Pros: "The flight was excellent"

Cons: "Waiting while we were boarding, the plane was about 35 degrees with no A/c everyone was melting"
Pros: "Very efficiently run"
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."
Cons: "Time - delayed twice - missed connection"
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."
Cons: "Their international flights are all supposed to be on the 737 Max, but since that aircraft is currently grounded, the international flight was on a 737 intended for use on shorter domestic flights."

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."

Pros: "Espaço entre assentos"
Cons: "Não tinha entretenimento"
Cons: "Gol decided to charge 35 Reals for each checked baggage. As a result most passengers do not check their bagagge and the crew has to do tetris during 20 minutes in order to accomodate all on-board items. This produces tension among passangers and the crew."

We went to the Etihad desk in São Paulo and they did nothing to help us except suggest we complain via the website. The worst flight experience of my life!"
