There was a problem getting on, they allowed premium members to board but when I got to the plane, I was scolded by the cleaning crew lady (maybe the Mgr) that they were not ready and that she had informed 'them' of that and that no one is allowed to board while they are cleaning."

Pros: "It got us to where we were going so we could have an awesome vacation."
Cons: "Don't forget to pick up your baggage in Buenos Aires and recheck it to your final destination if this is where you go through customs.

Also, we had to leave the international terminal and walk a pretty long distance to the terminal for Ushuaia which was originally difficult to figure out as there wasn't a lot of signage"
Cons: "I didn't get to fly aerolinas Argentina I was shunted to a different airline"

Cons: "Small point, I suppose, but when i’m On a “national champion” carrier like Aerolineas Argentinas, I expect them to put their coubtry’s Best foot forward. Having noticed in their in-flight magazine that the airline had improved its selection of Argentine wines, I asked which ones they had. The flight attendant said they had no wine on board because it was not an international flight. Since we were flying from Rio to Buenos Aires, I said “What?”, or words to that effect. I thought, “This will come as a surprise to both countries.” It reminded me of a TAP transatlantic flight I took last year, which had no Portuguese wines in board, not even Port. Why don’t airlines show more pride in their country’s food and drink?"
Pros: "Took of on time."
Cons: "No food snacks on board."

Cons: "Food was sub-par. No entertainment. Seat a little tight."

Pros: "The snacks were ok."
Cons: "The seats on this plane were not meant for tall people. At 6'4", I was miserable on the entire flight."

Pros: "Orderly, professional service"
Cons: "I get to the counter in Ushuaia and my tick t do not work! I was forced to buy a new ticket right there. And it wasn’t cheap of course. I bought it form Flight Network through your website. The charged my credit card for this ticket. I don’t know who is responsible here but I obviously want me money back. And I would suggest not linking to them ever again in the future. That was ridiculous."
Pros: "nos dieron dos sandwich nada mas! una vergueza"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and I could not do my trip"
Pros: "People were very nice"
Pros: "Everything went according to plan. Tough to beat that."
Pros: "Check in person was very nice"

Food is very mediocre. No leg room whatsoever... Also very noisy kid didn't help the impression on the flight"
Pros: "normal safe flight"
Cons: "my luggage was lost !!!! and we are still waiting for it to arrive ... it resulted in 2 days stuck in a hostel in Santa Cruz without any compensation from the airline"
Cons: "Old plane, delayed and the football team on the flight was celebrating in the asles the whole time so no one could sleep. The crew did not ask for them to be quiet or sit down. They literally were signing over safety announcements and during the whole flight!"

Cons: "Very tinny the space for a long trip"
Pros: "Service was great and accommodations"
Pros: "The airplane was a newer one that was very comfortable."
Cons: "Aerolineas staff was very rude during airline strike"
Cons: "The flight was delayed all day and then cancelled after hours of waiting. The airline did not give anyone information or make announcements for a long time both during the delays and after the subsequent cancellation, so we continued to wait at the airport without knowing anything. If they had clued us in to what was going on periodically it would have been helpful. They did finally get us to a hotel to spend the night after a long day in the terminal, but the service and rooms were also very poor there. The next day's flight was also delayed. Unreal. All in all a very disappointing experience. Would not fly them again but they have a monopoly on the particular flight we were on so wouldn't have a choice if we were to repeat again."
Pros: "Comfort of plane, entertainment available, on time arrival. I would never go on american, delta or latam if I have option on aerolíneas argentinas"

Pros: "This plane was roomier than the one I flew in on."
Cons: "Food is not very good but that's how it is on all airlines these days, though Delta is best at food. Also the headphones provided are horrible! I usually use my own but I had packed them away in my overhead carryon."
Pros: "Our first flight of the day on Aerolineas, from Salta to Buenos Aires was delayed an hour. We were supposed to have two hours in AEP (Buenos Aires), to connect with our international flight to Rio de Janeiro, but ended up with only 1 hour from landing to takeoff. Because the tickets were booked separately we had to collect our bags and recheck them. But the baggage claim area was packed with people and there were two flights before ours lined up for the belt. We knew it would be at least half an hour just to get the bags... it was too tight. So I went to the Aerolineas desk and a nice woman checked the status and referred me to the Customer Service desk. The man there made some calls and assured me that they would pull our bags and put them on our flight to Rio. He told us to go directly to the gate. We did, and needed every minute to go through customs and arrived just in time for boarding. Amazingly, our bags were there when we arrived in Rio, and we were very happy that we made it with our things!"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and on time. I got from point A to point B as planned, which is the most important thing."
Cons: "After going through airport security there was another check where they physically went through everyone's carry on bags at the gate right before boarding. It took forever, but I don't begrudge the airline for the stupid things the TSA makes them do. What *was* disappointing and quite disrespectful was that all liquids were confiscated at this check, even though they had all been purchased in the terminal after regular airport security. Water bottles from kiosks and unopened bottles of wine from shops. No warning about this beforehand so we could avoid wasting a bunch of money. Then to add insult to injury, the flight attendants never once responded to the call bell. I was trapped in the middle of the row behind a sleeping fat man desperate for water and without my water bottle. One little cup with each meal didn't cut it, so I came off my 11 hour flight nice and dehydrated and feeling ill."
Pros: "There food in good and the crews is very helpful."
Cons: "The seats are the worst. Very uncomfortable and without head support. No entertainment on board."
Cons: "staff can not speak english"

Cons: "At this time all worked perfect for me the way how it is."
Pros: "Easy check in, and kindly personnal"
Cons: "Maybe consider some upgrades when its possible"
Pros: "The pilots were polite and arrived early at destination."
Cons: "Could provide a menu card, like every other airline. Instead of listing every single option to everyone on the plane. And maybe use bigger cups that hold more than 3-4 ounces?? Especially when the airport takes away peoples liquids (see below). Ridiculous. Not necessarily with flight, more with Lima airport “security” - they took away ALL bottled liquids more than 3 oz. AT THE GATE. Even bottled water purchased 20 feet from the gate. And they couldn’t explain why. Just got a bunch of shrugs. Why take sealed water purchased at their own airport away before an international 8+ hour flight???"
Cons: "suitcase came in torn, cut and did not want to compesate"
Pros: "Quick comfortable trip."
Cons: "Some food or drinks"
Cons: "They lost my luggage"

Cons: "Venden asientos pero sus sistema de la aplicación es pésimo no me dejaba cargar el pago. Para el embarque de miami a lima no había buen orden"
Pros: "Smooth flight, arrived a bit early"
Cons: "There was one crew member who was VERY rude to me at the end of the flight"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"
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: "Good service and food. Though food tray was small. not very many choices. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process in Lima was chaotic. I was to continue on the same plane from Miami and Lima to Buenos Aires, however, nobody mentioned I could stay on the same aircraft, so they made me go off the plane out the arriving area hall, again through security, which was a hassle, almost forgot my wrist watch..... all that to end up in the same gate to board the same plane. a total waste of time and energy...."
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."
Pros: "Excellent boarding, something that all the airlines should do: starting boarding from the back of the plain. Boarding is much faster."

Pros: "Crew was nice, good food, nice aircraft, good entertainment options."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours Making us be late for our connection. We made it to the flight but it was a real hassle."

Pros: "Once I was aboard my flight in Lima LA 2514 the attendants were helpful."
Cons: "When I arrived to Jorge Chavez the ticket counter was down. I waited for 20 minutes and Brunella eventually gave me a boarding pass. The pass was hand written and missing information but she assured me it would be fine. When I attempted to go through security they informed me this wasn't a boarding pass and was missing information. They said I would have to go back downstairs to the desk again. have a visible disability that affects the way I walk, and typically I do not require a wheelchair. I give myself enough time to get to my destination, but thanks to Brunella I was running incredibly late. I finally arrived though my flight was then rerouted to Orlando due to weather conditions at Miami and never arrived in Miami. The pilot of this flight LA2514 decided he was done and wouldn't fly there at all. The passengers were informed they would take buses to Miami."

Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."
Pros: "This was my first time flying on LATAM and I will definitely use them again. Service and crew was very good."

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: "Las instalaciones en perfecto estado todo en funcionamiento"
Cons: "Los sobrecargo un poco antipáticos deberían de colocar más aeromozas"
Pros: "The crew was nice and professional"
Cons: "no entertainment. No leg room"
Pros: "Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try)."
Cons: "All ok"
Pros: "Didn’t have to pay more for the exit row!!!"
Pros: "In general is fine, but the same price of all the other airlines . I flew 3 hours and no tv! (and no meal) I'd fly Avianca next time: They all have your personal tv and gives you meal even for short flights."
Cons: "It was on time."
Cons: "Incluir español en la comunicación en el avion"
Cons: "Me gustaría que además de portugués e inglés, se hablara español, tener en cuenta que sale de Buenos Aires"
Cons: "They had only 4 people checking in the luggages and the lines was huge ... my wait in line was longer than my fight which I think it's absurd"
Pros: "The crew. They are very careful."
Cons: "They charge me by my baby stroller! They lost part of my bag. Never more I will travel by GOL."
Pros: "A equipe de bordo agradável, mas o check-in pessimo"
Pros: "legroom, boarding process."
Cons: "snacks were kinda sparce"
Pros: "On time and the flight wasn't cancled like their partner airline."
Pros: "Arrived earlier than scheduled"
Pros: "The crew was very professional. Pilots made the flight really smooth."
Cons: "WiFi didn't exist on board (even being that they advertised it on every place they could)"
Pros: "Second leg seats were roomy even though I was not in comfort rows, flight left on time on the second leg, flight attendants were curteous on both flights,check-in staff also curteous on both airports. The price was right."
Cons: "First leg flight was one hour late, seats were tight on the first leg even though I upgraded to comfort, and only water was served."
Pros: "Friendly staff and smooth boarding process."
Cons: "British Airways charge you for water. However the flight attendant did her best and brought me a glass of water. It is the first time that water is not courtesy form an airline."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, lots of options for movies and tv to watch on their screens, lots of leg room."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Leg room is laughable and charging $65 to check a bag is ridiculous."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very nice."
Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."
Cons: "Dear Sir or Madam: My two colleagues and I bought our tickets from BWI to Geneva, via London Heathrow, through Kayak as I have many times in the past. However, the Kiwi.com travel agency did not flag that the ticket from BWI to London Heathrow allowed for one piece of checked luggage, but the ticket from London Heathrow onwards to Geneva did not allow for any checked luggage. Also astonishingly, we had to pass through Customs, reclaim our checked suitcases from the baggage carousel, and check in again through Customs to board the onward flight, both coming and going through London Heathrow. In addition to the extraordinary inconvenience that we could neither transit at London Heathrow to our connecting flight without going through Customs twice and that we could not check our luggage through to our final destination, we also had to foot a higher baggage charge to allow for checking in our suitcases, now that we had arrived in London Heathrow only to discover this that our onward ticket did not cover one piece of checked luggage. Had we known that the seemingly better price posted by Kiwi.com on Kayak’s comparative offerings came at such a high price of inconvenience and additional expense for the luggage, we would have taken our business elsewhere. It was deceptive of Kiwi.com to engage in such practices, even if it disclosed these conditions in fine print (for no one would expect, nor have I ever seen previously in the hundreds of flights I have taken as a Million Miler on United), without flagging this. And similarly, it was irresponsible of Kayak.com to allow this “apples with oranges” comparison on its website. I’m making three more international trips in December, but I’m inclined not to use either Kayak.com and most certainly not Kiwi.com for future airline ticket purchases."
Cons: "British air wouldn’t let me carry on OR check my guitar, so I was forced to give it to a homeless man at the Madrid airport in order to make my flight. FlyUs was no help at all, neither were BA, AA, or Iberia. Worst travel experience of my life and I’ve traveled the globe with guitars. Luckily it was an inexpensive instrument."
Cons: "Flight was canceled forcing us to spend an extra night in Paris. British Airways was extremely unorganized in dealing with an 11 hour delay. I will not fly BA ever again."
Pros: "Because the flight was an hour late we missed our connection from London to Chicago. Was a day late getting home!"
Pros: "The A380"
Cons: "Two kids in front of us screamed throughout flight No sleep possible"
Pros: "Food was good. Decent movie choices"
Cons: "Plane was older and in poor repair. Our air vents and over head lights had been completely removed for our row - so we could not read or knit as others could. Seats are far to small and close together to allow for any real rest or sleep."
Cons: "Planes should have WiFi"
Pros: "British Airways is flying done right. They are a first class carrier, even when you're flying in coach!"
Cons: "not much room. cant explain the boarding. too complicated and required going down stairs."
Pros: "Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good"
Cons: "Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move"
Pros: "There was one female stewardess who was extremely kind and helpful"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the back of the plane Bathrooms were FILTHY! Flight delayed by an hour Lost our luggage and then gave us the run-around about how we can get it back, when we would receive it, and did not compensate us for anything; ruined our weekend plans Extremely rude steward who, when we were upset about not having food behaved as if we should be grateful just to be in his company This flight was the exact opposite of what I have come to expect and appreciate about BA... Not sure I would ever endorse flying with them again..."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "I had a flight from Atlanta to London with a connection flight to fly to Istanbul. The first flight was fine and smooth but the second was just terrible. Upon buying and resorting to British Airwaya, it wasn't mentioned anywhere that the second flight plans do not offer complimentary soft drinks or snacks for the three hour flight after a 6 hour layover. Assuming my flight was going to feed, I didn't eat a whole lot at the airport so I didn't have to spend too much money. I declined the cart the first go around and didn't seem any too interested or sure what some of the options were. I lasted as long as I could and gave in and pulled out my credit card (not accepting cash is another disappointment because my Turkish bank account was charged by pounds) but there was nothing but one choice left and it didn't sit well in my stomach."
Pros: "Nice flight, great service."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Comming back the seats were more comfortable"
Cons: "Going the seats were very very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "I like the friendliness of the crew. They were always pleasant and accommodating. The hot meals were good."
Cons: "I didn't like the cramped spaces, especially when the person in front of me would put their seat back. It was hard to get in and out if you needed to use the restrooms and to eat with your food on the tray table ."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "One crew member did not care for us at all. Did not bring the water and coffy we asked."
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."
Cons: "Plane departed late and stalled at landing- delay caused me to miss connection and set me back getting home by 7 hours at the end of it all."
Cons: "I told the ground crew that I would prefer an aisle seat when I checked in, and she acknowledged my need. Yet, it turned out that I was given a window seat while there are vacant aisle seats on the plane."
Pros: "It was a smooth landing."
Cons: "Do difference between business and coach except no one in the middle. Same seats, same everything. Save your money."
Cons: "We learned the connecting flight from BWI TO PHL was canceled when we tried to pull boarding passes.This started a five hour panic for our party of four which was a leisure travel nail biter. We lost a day, flew into JFK and had to make other arrangements to avoid canceling our trip."
Pros: "Everyone is so nice with British Airways. The food is always a delight too. I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Cons: "It seems the economy seats get smaller and smaller, but the trip was great overall."

Pros: "Everyone was very pleasant to deal with. And I even got upgraded"
Pros: "Very professional"
Pros: "The customer service representatives are very apologetic and helpful."
Cons: "Lack of punctuality. For any flight through British Airways, do not expect to be on time. Both flights were delayed; significantly so that the group I was with ended up missing the connecting flight (that shockingly left on time)"
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Embracardo plane is small."
Cons: "We checked in exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes before scheduled departure time, as previously instructed when we attempted check-in some three-and-a-half hours before departure. Thus we were, I'm fairly certain, the second couple to check in for the entire flight. I asked the agent if the fare we paid allowed us a checked piece of luggage. She said that, yes, we were entitled to one checked piece per passenger at no charge. That being the case, I asked the agent to issue a refund for the two Checked Baggage fees my wife had paid online. She insisted there was nothing she could do about it and it was totally out of her hands. I explained to her my understanding that such refund must be requested PRIOR TO CHECK-IN, but she reiterated there was nothing she could do, and offered no solution whatsoever. In addition, the agent insisted that we were not allowed to carry-on a cabin bag in addition to a personal item. When I asserted my rights (See Note 1), she had the temerity to say "You should know British Airlines' policy if you buy a ticket." Trying another tack, I asked who DID get to use the overhead lockers, since they were only allowing under-seat sized Personal Items to be brought on-board. She replied that the "no cabin baggage" policy applied "after the first 30 passengers boarded the plane." (Please recall that we were the second couple ON THE ENTIRE PLANE to check-in, and thus should make that artificial "cut-off." (Also, as a Million Mile flyer with your partner, American Airlines, I believe we're entitled to Priority Boarding.) Concerned about the valuable items in the cabin bag she was effectively commandeering, I inquired about the airlines Limits of Liability in case of Loss or Damage. She said she had no idea. I then asked to see a copy of the airline's Conditions of Carriage. But she was either unable or unwilling to provide same. I arrived very, very early to ensure these sorts of problems could be ironed-out before departure, and am frankly appalled by the lack of knowledge, professionalism and judgement the airline exhibited in this instance. Also: On-board service was so incredibly slow, the last two rows were not served until 15 minutes prior to landing. ("There you go, sir. Bottoms up... and be quick about it! ;-) Bill B. Los Angeles, CA USA"
Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "Extra luggage is 90 pounds!!!"
Cons: "Did not allow us on the flight one hour before scheduled time due to inability to check in."
Cons: "Seats on the flight London to Barcelona weren't as comfortable but it's not fair as it's just the model of airplane. Although modern seats just weren't that good to try catch some sleep."
Pros: "The service was excellent. Really liked the economy plus section and the little perks made a big difference."
Cons: "The steak was overcooked. The baggage return added an hour to my trip home (I know this is likely a JFK problem) They are still handing out landing cards and asking you to fill them out at JFK for US passports--stop!"
Cons: "Everyone was terrible"
Pros: "Crew was okay. Boarding was okay."
Cons: "Food was not great. Snack was a candy bar? No other options in back of the plane. Entertainment cut out and the system was difficult to operate and movie variety was not wonderful."
Cons: "5.5 hour delay...sat on plane for 3.5 hours due to several unrelated issues...none weather related...airline did nothing for customer satisfixation (no snacks, no entertainment) hen had to deboard for 2 hours until a new plane was secured and worst part was we had a 7 hour flight plan. This flight was not operated by British Air. It was operated by American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was good food good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2.5 hours as they were taking out luggage of passengers who did not make it. Yet my baggage from my connecting flight did not make it and suppose to come 1 day later."
Pros: "The care taken when I needed to be rebooked."
Pros: "When I first saw the thin wings and huge engines hanging off them I was curious how that works! But I soon grew to love these new planes! Wow they like to fly! and a faster transatlantic flight too. Plus new screens for entertainment with a great hand control option."
Cons: "No one get that excited about plane food - it is what it is so I don't have huge expectations and i do appreciate most meals. the only one I really disliked was the Pasta dish with the 'jerk crumble' on top."
Pros: "On time, Smooth ride, My fellow travelers were all good little cows and bulls.. Alright maybe 1 or 2 jack asses. but for the most part the herd pleasant."
Cons: "This was a AA Flight, Seat was broken. So I was told to put my seat back in the upright position times. Witch woke me up witch pissed me off! Or course the lady behind me was pissed also. Since my head was in her lap for 10 hours. Of course she did mind the first 10 minuets. :)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful and made the flight a happy place"
Cons: "There was no assistance for me at LHR even though I had less than 20 minutes to get off my plane, clear security, and get to a different terminal"
