Cons: "Maybe consider some upgrades when its possible"

Pros: "Crew was great. Seat was great."
Cons: "Food. I didnt eat anything else on this trip with the exception of LATAMs provided meal and by landing I was in the ER with a food borne disease. Fluids coming out both ends hooked up to an IV to rehydrate my body while they ran tests which confirmed the food... Everything else was great just don't eat the food."

Cons: "Space!!!!"

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The spaces"

Cons: "Delay by an hour"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "Quick check in online"
Cons: "Plane was 2 hours late taking off and we missed our connecting flight."

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: "Have the seats when I boughted the ticket. Couldn’t check in , there is no option for residents, only visa Viver"

Pros: "Confortable seats, flight on time"
Cons: "The flight attendant kept talking all night with two passengers. I could hear them even with ear plugs. When I finally was able to sleep, she didnt wake me up for breakfast even when I especifically asked to be awakened. And than replied that she wasnt able to wake me. Awful service for executive."

Pros: "Nothing"
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"

Cons: "seat, food, entertainment system and options"

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: "The flight crew were okay. They only offer water for free, if you want food, you need to look at the pricing in the catalog. a cup of coffee for example would cost you 3000 pesos which is free if you take Copa or Avianca airlines. The seats were not comfortable either, just the same as others."
Cons: "At least offer something to eat and drink on flight."

Pros: "Organized well"
Cons: "Seat crowded too much"

Cons: "The check in line had a three hour wait....it was a mad house. Then they told me the flight was boarding at 5:30 for a 6:33 departure, so I got stressed out to get to the gate. We did not board until 6:45 and left at 7:30????"

Pros: "Make you feel at home with the chilean way of beeing"
Cons: "The rates"

Pros: "Amazing service from every staff member I met! Super polite and professional! A shout to Adriana and Matheus for making me feel so welcome!! Thank you and the whole crew for a great experience!"
Cons: "It was great!"

Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "U have to pay for everythings"

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: "It was my first time flying with LATAM and I loved it! The planes are amazing, such a great taste for everything. Delicious food! Everyone was so nice and helpful! Very attentive and polite. Definitely will be looking forward to travel with then again!"

Pros: "It was my first time flying with LATAM and I loved it! The planes are amazing, such a great taste for everything. Delicious food! Everyone was so nice and helpful! Very attentive and polite. Definitely will be looking forward to travel with then again!"

Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."

Pros: "Plane was nice and relatively comfortable, crew was nice, even though their English could use a brush-up."
Cons: "I asked for an aisle seat at check-in and I got the feeling the attendant in charge felt I was wasting her time. Unfortunately, it is an important deal for me to know what seat I'm in."

Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."

Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."

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

Cons: "We were traveling with 2 children. Seats assigned: rows 15, 18, 32, and 38. Nobody in the crew (from the desk to the plane) was able to solve the problem. We solved it swapping seats with other passengers. We were 4 with 3 carry-on bags. The person who was in charge was very rude. They don't allow us to carry any of them in the cabin and 1 arrived broken. I had no problems like this before, With full flights like this is normal to have to send some luggage that you expect in the cabin to the hold, but in this case the crew was very unclear and rude. The food: it was a short flight and they give us our snack just seconds before the landing. Finally, they lost 1 of our bags. Waiting to see if it appears."

Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Timely and leg room ok."
Cons: "I’d rather have the option to buy good food than to get prepaid substandard food. No entertainment system available but these days everybody brings their own tablet anyway. Crew was polite and professional."

Cons: "vuelo terrible, los asientos totalmente incómodos, el pasaje no ha costado poco y suprimireron el snack, qué vuelo tan incómodo. ya no conectan la manga y la gente salio en todo el frío fue un choque muy brusco de corriente porque dentro del avión estaba muy caliente ya que creo que no funcionaba el aire acondionado y salir en todo el viento cualquiera se puede enfermar"

Pros: "customer service in Bogota"
Cons: "needs to download the app to watch movies if you do not have a I pad or smart phone????"

Cons: "I'm still in Miami airport having spent the night here. I understand I will need to spend the night tonight in Sdantiago airport prior to going to Córdoba tomorrow. Not one apology from the airline for this debacle. Despicable"

Pros: "Maybe, we'll have to see..."
Cons: "KAYAK sent me this email as i sit in a hotel provided by the airline in Lima. I will submit a complaint with KAYAK, for I believe I deserve compensation, especially when this email is sent to me impersonally before a solution to the problem has even been carried out."

Pros: "Very friendly staff. Specially crew leader Sandra"

Pros: "Enjoyed the large choice video possibilities."
Cons: "Too long of a layover in Lima. My screen kept popping back to restart during the video I was watching."

Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service and food in couch was amazingly the best I had in a long time. The entertainment was delightful. The telephone service for questions, while in Peru, was terrible. My flight reservation number was changed and I needed to talk to someone. I had to call the States help line instead of the local number which had a non working automated answering menu."

Pros: "Bosrdi g wss easy"
Cons: "Food Entertainment Leg space"

Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "The flight started boarding 30 minutes late."

Pros: "Service by the flight attendants."

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."

Pros: "The best business class seating we've encountered ... tons of leg room, side by side seating arrangements. I peeped into economy and that's not too bad neither. The seats were 3 sets of 3 seats per row. Most other planes would have at least 10 seats across."
Cons: "All passengers had to open their bags to be searched by hand ... didn't we got screened already by the airport? So it took forever to board the plane"

Pros: "Fast food service"
Cons: "Very narrow seats in coach. If you’re sitting next to a larger person expect to be crunched."

Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."

Pros: "It didn’t happen"
Cons: "It didn’t happen"

Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."

Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."

Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."

I was waiting forever behind the check-in desk in Vancouver. I then put my bags on my chair and used the chair like a walker! Still no help. When I asked for help I was told that I was early and I could wait. Not the right answer. I was told to be at the airport 2 1/2 hrs. early which I was. Until I got to the woman at the boarding desk at E84, I was treated terribly. Since we travel with our friends we had hoped to at least see them. No way.

Pros: "At least the seats had power outlets."
Cons: "Crew appeared to hate their jobs, only peanuts and water for a 2.5hr flight. Plane was good but united sucks."

Cons: "I don't like delays..."

Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."

They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours.

Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."

Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."

Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"

Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
