Pros: "Quickly moving through the airport."
Cons: "Take out old planes. It was really run down."
Pros: "Amazing crew and seating. Worth the upgrade to premium."
Cons: "Nothing my timing was a bit off it all worked out well"
Cons: "Delta put me on an aisle rather than window I am broad shouldered and got pummeled throughout the flight by passengers and crew passing by Gal next to me fell asleep on my shoulder It was ok. She was attractive. :-)"
Pros: "Seats were horrible, we all booked together and a bunch of my group got bumped to a different flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "More room and comfort than American Airlines."
Pros: "Everything went as planned!"
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "Aside from the issue where we had to deplane and wait for another plane, the flight and crew were great."
Cons: "The delay from the plane problem."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The very personal pilot"
Cons: "Haven't left yet!!!"
Cons: "In between Delta and Aeromexico changed my flight and made me travel more than 24 hours. In addition, I was traveling with a suitcase and nobody was able to pick it up for me. Layover time was 6 hours originally. Service from Aeromexico at JFK is the worst"
Pros: "The in flight movie and fast boarding"
Cons: "Couldn't get a receipt for baggage fee"
Pros: "My original flight from MSP to Grand Forks had the nicest pilot that went above and beyond his duties on and off aircraft."
Cons: "Switched planes 3 times, Gates 4 times and little communication on what to expect now, and moving forward. Ended up delayed on jetway 90 minutes before returning to gate to be switched on and off planes for 4 hours Also Delta broke my suitcase in 4 spots I will be contacting delta about this horrible experience!!!"
Cons: "4+ total hour delay"
Pros: "Makes all the difference to have Flight attendants and pilots all wonderful. Gratefully, ~Elana"
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, kind, confident and easy going flight attendants really made this flight stand out. The seats in economy were comfy and new; the touch screen Tvs were updated and functioned properly. The snacks were healthier. Way to go, Delta! Keep it up!"
Pros: "I had an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Bumpy flight"
Cons: "For a competitive price charged by almost any other airline for the same distance, there was no lunch on a midday international flight? That is terrible. To make things worse, the entertainment screen was broken. It did not respond to touches. More of an ordeal than entertainment. To top it all, the current flight info (e.g. time at departure & destination, flight duration) was all wrong. Not a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Fast and efficient boarding again! Most impressed!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for an hour. That left around less than 30 minutes to on-board. More than 20 people missed their connecting flight too. The staff was way too confused. After asking what are the options no one knows how to reschedule and all kept saying that can only happen once you land to calgary."
Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"
Cons: "It was so late I missed my connection to sun valley flight. There was not another flight for 8 hrs!!! I think the sun valley flight should have waited for us. It was a matter of 10-15 min. Crew did not try to board people quickly to get us out of San Diego. 5 more minutes might have made a difference."
Cons: "When they called for passengers with infants and those who needed more time they also called for anyone who wanted to check their luggage. So of course people cut right in front of me as I was about to scan my pass. What is the point of asking us to come up if they are just going to let people jump in front of me."
Pros: "Good for an economy flight"
Cons: "Too long"
Pros: "New Plane - super roomy great selections of movies to watch for free on the TV!"
Pros: "We flew first class for the first time. Now I don't think I'll fly any other way!"
Pros: "On time,smooth good servive"
Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "It's just a really small plane so the comfort isn't great but only a half hour flight"
Pros: "Just to clean the cabin a bit more and the folding table tops. thanks!"
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "The entertainment screen was good. The food was acceptable. The crew was very nice and friendly."
Cons: "The seating. Isn't that always the case. Buy a standard seat and be squished like you don't matter - just an afterthought - and if you wanted better, spend another $100 bucks or so. Add to that insult the fact that my wife and I couldn't even sit together because we couldn't choose seats until we arrived at the airport. Really."
Pros: "service. Thank you."
Cons: "comfort seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I drove 5 hours to get to the airport and unfortunately ended up delayed because of traffic and slow shuttles from parking. I arrived 1 hour before the flight, but security was so slow I didn't get to the gat until 10 minutes before arrival. There were no gate agents present and despite banging on the gateway door and other Delta agents at the adjacent gate, no one helped me. I can only surmise that they had already given away our seats, which were award tickets, GAINED BY BEING A LOYAL DELTA CUSTOMER. The gate agents were unapologetic and useless at rebooking, and I bought a ticket from Southwest instead. As i was trying to get to my sister's wedding, and repeatedly told the agents this, their behavior was particularly abominable. DELTA, YOU'VE LOST A LOYAL CUSTOMER."
Pros: "MAN-MUC & MUC-CPH via LH. Business class. LH Businesss class is middle seat of 3 is empty and larger amounts of baggage plus you have access to lounges. Both planes flew and arrived reasonably on time, which is what I look for.And I got all the Business Class extras."
Cons: "Security at Manchester was very slow - long enough make me ill from standing in one place too long. But then I was well looked after. The meals on both flights were identical; I don't think it can be a big problem to correct that. I took a long time to get accepted by the WiFi in the two lounges."
Cons: "Will never use Lufthansa again"
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The onboard entertainment were quite outdated selections. The seats are very small for such a long flight."
Cons: "The people sitting beside me was very loud and they didn’t stop talking the whole time."
Pros: "Very clean cabin, crew efficient and friendly"
Cons: "The sweet pastry is horrible, please bling back the cheese sandwich/ or similar."
Pros: "Crew were very good and helpful. Efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "It looks like Lufthansa has decided to make business class more like "Premium Economy" with lie flat seats. 1) Food was very average with very little selection. 2) Dessert was a joke - other airlines have ice cream sundaes 3) NO HANDICAP BATHROOM. Must be illegal. FAA require Disability access by Disabilities Act. 4) Amenities kit - worst I have seen in all the airlines I have traveled. 5) Snack bar - No selection, just small chocolate, water and orange juice. Even economy planes like Jet Blue have better selection. German people are getting used to mediocrity and I am surprised. World class airline with cheap customer side product. Don't cut costs on things that customers see, touch and eat. To add to that, my mother in law is handicapped. When transferring her to the gate, they took her in a bus and did not strap the wheel chairs next to her chair. All of them fell on her - YES! THEY ALL FELL FROM A HEIGHT ON A HANDICAPPED PERSON WHO HAS ARTHRITIS AND IN PAIN ALL THE TIME. Damaged her knee joints. This is why we travel business class - and they hurt her more than if we took her our selves."
Pros: "The flight was 1.5 hours late that almost caused us to miss our connecting flight to Tel Aviv. The service and plane was just OK."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was just fair. The plane was small and bathrooms options limited"
Pros: "Crew were excellent!!!"
Cons: "Se headline"
Pros: "Really good food and personal service. Made me feel like I was in a restaurant."
Cons: "I tried to get onto an earlier flight for my transfer. They were not accommodating. Next time I'll consider a flexible fare."
Cons: "(1) The captain collected headsets 30 minutes before landing, causing us to miss the last 15 minutes of a movie. Why? (2) Very long cues for toilet use. (3) The baggage took more than half hour to arrive. (4) The chair in front of me reclined very far (more than those on its sides), making it very hard to eat, get up, or read. Need better maintenance."
Pros: "Arrived/departed on time and didn’t lose luggage"
Cons: "Paid extra for reserved seat that was free a few years ago—a very uncomfortably cramped seat."
Pros: "Very good flight in business class. Comfortable seats and great service."
Pros: "It was overall a great flying experience."
Cons: "One of my connections was way too short. I almost missed my flight. I had to run!"
Pros: "Flight Delayed from EWR. But the connecting flight to mumbai was not allowed to boarded. Since the gate closed even though the flight was still there. On top of it, the flight that was provided as an alternative was again with a stopover, so now, we had two stop over and extra 14 hours of layover time. Did not offer hotel stay or transit visa. was stuck in airport. Very much disappointed with Lufthansa. Will never take this flight nor will allow my friends and family to take one ever again."
Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "If you want to improve you need more staff to service massive numbers of travellers."
Cons: "Most of it okay except add more toilets or arrange a proper way to deal with large numbers of travellers"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the service was excellent"
Pros: "The flight had plenty of leg room and a snack with drink was served free which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on first part of journey from Budapest to Munich"
Pros: "Crew members are very friendly."
Pros: "Boarding was done very quickly. Unlike the norm nowadays, people weren't cramming every single inch of space in the overhead. In addition, the flight wasn't full so my travel companion got to enjoy a full row to himself while I enjoyed an empty seat next to me to stretch out. The food was very good. The staff came by quite a few times to offer orange juice or water. The entertainment syren was excellent. I watched four full movies on the trip and have in mind at least a couple more for the return leg."
Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "I was sitting at the tale end. Seat was extremely uncomfortable. I was trying to rest yet flight attendants and several passengers were talking loud. Crews kept forgetting passengers orders/requests. A lady sitting besides me pushed a call bottom 3 times to get noticed. Flight attendants were too busy chatting with passengers to help other passengers. I have never seen that type of services before."
Pros: "I liked the food."
Pros: "The flight was right in time and the crew was good."
Cons: "I couldn't get my phone to connect to the wifi."
Pros: "They were waiting for us even we were running late from connecting flight, everybody was super nice"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "they did good job"
Cons: "security held me up due to venice security not stamping my passport,,,i was finally able to find the original ticket due to free wifi in airport and get it straightened out though it would have been awful if i had not been early early"
Pros: "The everything was excellent, easy. Very comfortable with nice professional staff around! Thank you!"
Cons: "Delayed taking off due to airport queue."
Pros: "Had really less than an hour to pass through immigration and catch a connecting flight to Rome. In particular I thought my bag would not make the connection, and as I was going on to Perugia that evening and it would have been a big mess. At check-in for the Rome flight, the LH lady was able to confirm my bag was already aboard which put me at ease. It came through very quickly in Rome and I arrived in Perugia on time and with my bag! Food from Bogota was tasty and there was a complimentary snack on flight to Rome."
Pros: "Everything went as smoothly as possible. Would definitely recommend."
Cons: "It was my bad luck to be near two children whose parents would not keep them quiet and who played games on their screen for nine hours straight, shrieking the entire time. Nor did any of the stewards help or say boo to the parents."
Pros: "So much continent flight with online check - in. I have to stayed over night at the hotel in Frankfurt and all my lagged come from Barcelona to the end of my destination. On my flight had one passenger got sick before boarding, the crew had responded very quick to support his life. And great entertainment."
Cons: "Very long flight. Try to get as much sleep as possible."
Cons: "The seats recline too much! The passenger in front of me almost immediately reclined her chair right into my face, making an irritable experience on a long flight for me. That is the only flaw in your service in my experience."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good! Pretty good selection of entertainment."
Cons: "Leg space was limited- even for a 5'4" person!"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "if i had booked that flight the overall experience would have been great. on time, good service, comfortable seats, good food and great entertainment."
Cons: "i booked a different flight, so we ended up adding significant travel time and cost to this trip which made the overall experience somewhat frustrating. — airlines also need to get better at keeping families seated close to each other if the kids are small. it adds to the overall travel anxiety and gets everyone in a bad mood."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "Paying for wifi"
Pros: "What a wonderful experience. My husband is a very tall man and he had commented on how much leg room there was in this plane. Everything was very comfortable, people were very polite. Wonderful experience. We also appreciated in the terminal in Munich the free coffee and newspaper stand when we left the plane. How refreshing it was to be able to get a free cup of coffee after a 6am flight. We will be looking into Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "I requested Kosher meal and first time did not get it. I was shocked when I was told that Lufthansa does not serve it on this flight. I am planning to write about it Lufthansa CEO. The airplane was old, one restroom did not function and it was closed. So, the economy class was served by only one restroom for the entire flight which led to long waiting line and discomfort for many passengers."
Pros: "Our connecting flight to Munich was late, but Lufthansa had a van waiting to collect us, usher us through passport control and get us to our flight to New York in time. That was a tremendous help and took a lot of stress off of the trip."
Pros: "On-time flights."
Cons: "Seems like Germans have perfected isolation of all passengers heading to the USA at the airport terminal. After passing 3 passport/boarding pass check points I attempted to buy some coffee in the shop near the gates. Again they demanded passport and boarding pass. I refused. I cannot resist a comment: "Welcome to modern-day Dachau experience!""
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants not pleasant or nice."
Pros: "After domestic US flights where even gingerale can cost $2, it was wonderful to be fed two meals and taken care of. Even in economy, the seats felt comfortable."
Pros: "Great entertainment options"
Cons: "Did they really have to collect headsets a full 30 minutes before we landed? I was right in the middle of a movie. Next time I'll just hide it."
Pros: "Late departure, full flight but good overall."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work part of the flight"
Cons: "I used to reserve seats without fees, but Lufthansa airlines requested a fee when I tried to reserve seats in advance."
Pros: "Food was good, staff friendly and efficient,"
Cons: "The sleep seats weren't very comfortable to lie on but at least I got to stretch out."
Cons: "Didn't end up on this flight!!!! :("
Pros: "Emergency exit seat row had so much room!"
Pros: "Premium seats were an amazing touch"
Pros: "Was a good flight. No troubles or delays"
Cons: "Baggage claim was down for a bit, had to wait about 29 min. Not the airlines fault"
Pros: "As always great service and flight"
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Always great people st Westjet! Flown with other airline providers, they dont give what Westjet does. Great service everytime!!"
Cons: "did not like having to go further west before heading back east wasted a lot of time. and no entertainment unless you pay for it, seriously?"

Pros: "it was on time"
Pros: "very nice."

Pros: "I’m very good"
Cons: "There was not enough room for my carryon for some reason and so I had to sit with my knees up and feet on my bag. Not the worst but there should be enough carry on space for everyone."
Pros: "Everyone was kind and helpful. Keep up the good work."
Cons: "Trip was too short."
Pros: "I had a 5 month old baby and the crew was super smiley and friendly. Also, the flight wasn't full so there was plenty of room. I really enjoyed my experience. Thank you Westjet!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "All flights boarded late, they ran out of food for purchase on long flights and the seats are uncomfortable."
Cons: "How there was no boarding call and we missed our flight."

Cons: "Seat space was too tight"
Pros: "The courtesy of the flight crew, and above all, the smooth flight conducted by the Captain.T"
Cons: "There were no specific "hiccups" or negativity pertaining to the flight."
Cons: "The long delay, 2 kids crying continuous, no place to smoke, no one explained to me that I had to pick up my luggage in Toronto! So now my suitcase is delayed! I was told that it would go straight through to destination. I will never use Delta again! And I will not fly through Detroit or Toronto again!!!"
Pros: "Really great attendants. Friendly and humorous."
Cons: "They took the tablets pretty early it felt. 45 minutes before we landed. But other than that, great experience!"
Pros: "Flights were on time"
Cons: "Bad landings"

Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Pleasant crew. Flight left & arrived on time."
Pros: "Food, attendants, comfort, entertainment"
Cons: "Manual boarding and missing one of my luggage"
Cons: "Flight delayed, crew didn't remove garbage before landing."
Pros: "Regular seating on this West Jet flight was great, very comfortable with ample room."
Pros: "Constant thanks from crew for the passenger patience with delays due to flight crew, and then weather delays - 2 hrs total Liked the captain came out to speak, clearly I might add, to explain the weather delays and provide updates..."
Cons: "Can't complain about what was beyond my control, but flight crew needing to come from another flight and then the other side of the airport to set up, resulting in hour delay - seems like alternative should have been available or system needs a process review to improve efficiency"
Pros: "We were delayed while in the plane. The steward decided to give drinks and snacks on the house which in the end lightened the atmosphere. It did make it late for the Oilers play-off game which was likely very important to many of the business men on the flight."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to get their entertainment app to work."
Cons: "cabin was too hot"
Cons: "Delayed 8 hours."
Pros: "We were given seats in the Plus section on the short leg to Calgary."
Cons: "The plane was about 1.5 hours late arriving. A person was sick or drunk and had to deplane. It took over an hour to find his luggage and reload all the luggage. We missed our connecting flight to Calgary as a result and had to stay overnight in a hotel in Edmonton."
Pros: "Friendly staff at check-in and on flight. It had arrived early and so we were boarded early and left."
Cons: "Our flight heading to PSP was a different story. We were 2 1/2 hours late getting away, including the necessary deicing."
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth,the crew was excellent, and a very smooth flight."
Cons: "we sat in row 17 which was the last row to be served refreshments, when they finally got to us there were no sandwiches left and very little else to purchase."
Cons: "Seats are tooo small. Plane too warm and air nozzle pressure too weak. Shape of window made seat even more narrow. Wow!"
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "LAX is not a user friendly airport. Staff do not know which terminals guests need to go to"
Pros: "It's a short flight. Crew was good."
Pros: "Liked the price and small airport in Abbotsford. No complaints."
Pros: "Flight staff, food, seating, Personnal space, restrooms were clean, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Checking in at the counter and boarding the aircraft can use some polishing. The boarding process is confusing due to lack of communication to customers and faulty speaker/PA systems at LATAM gates."
Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."
Cons: "Boarding was adjacent to C04 with the Aerolineas flight leaving 5 minutes before us. This congested the boarding but was well handled."
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very polite and did a fantastic job with all complaints"
Cons: "Fly was delayed with out any reasonable or respectable justification. Flying from Chile with connection in Lima every piece of carry on, including purses where check again at the bording desk, wasting time and being disrespectful to the need of passenger side. Use to love flying on the past with you guys. Unfortunately the quality of services of the company are DEPLORABLE."
Pros: "The plane itself was awesome!"
Cons: "The customer service I received on the plane however was probably the worst service I've ever had and I fly a lot. From a stewardess giving me grief for requesting coke and crackers to the overall customer experience was very much lacking!"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "clean and new plane"
Cons: "delayed flight made me lose a day. My luggage got lost"
Pros: "Helpful, friendly service from LATAM employees. On-time flights."
Pros: "Good service from the crew."
Cons: "I lost my luggage (bag). I had to wait about 1 hour. Airport staff advised me to go from gate 1 to gate 11 and back to gate 1. Then advised me to go to Latam counter where I lodged a claim."
Cons: "rhe seat was terribly unconfortable. Food very bad"
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Pros: "Latam accomadated my family when we missed our flight by 24 hours because of the computer malfunction of Delta Airlines so that was super awesome of them."
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "Smooth ride no issues, I did not have anything bad to sat - the airport was lovely"
Cons: "Boarding was late and we left late but still got there on time"
Pros: "Good food and staff"
Cons: "Evething was good"
Cons: "It took forever to load the plane and they overbooked a few seats. The crew was clueless about how to handle seating a nice family whose seats were taken. 20 minutes later, the crew finally got it together. Also, the sandwich sucked. Some type of cream cheese on a lousy roll. Unbelievably bad and a calorie waste; tasted like wall paste."
Pros: "Boarding was made extremely easy for the tired, seniors, and people with children."
Cons: "The crudeness of some of the Air Hostesses was appalling. The food was unpalatable and no tolerance for people who were lactose intolerant. Narrow aisles, so going to the dirty toilets needed ingenuity!"
Cons: "My wife and I had a 3 hour, 15 minute delay because of a hydraulic issue. I understand that this needed to be repaired or checked out. However, it would have been helpful to have received periodic updates from the crew about what was happening. We went for over an hour without knowing what was going to happen while we sat on the plane."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "The stop in Lima"
Pros: "Service and attention was perfection at its best."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. 787-9 makes this journey a breeze."
Pros: "Everything except the cramped, smallish seating and the narrow cramped aisles."
Cons: "The cramped, small, tiny seats and the narrow cramped aisles."
Pros: "I am deaf, almost 68y. Old. They insisted to escort me to the gate, I was very happy to be escorted by a beautiful young girl. I would have been a little lost had I gone through the screening by myself. The indicated gate number was changed as well."
Cons: "LAN told us our bags were coming in the next 2hrs all day & they never arrived! They were clearly telling us lies the whole time."
Cons: "Baggage fee of $150 for one extra bag, under 50 LB limit. This was the worst experience I have ever encountered. I felt gouged."
Cons: "Liked everything"
Pros: "crew and cleanliness"
Cons: "Uncomfortable spacing of seats on short flights a nightmare on long hauls. Have to assume the distance between seat and seatback ahead is now a safety issue should an emergency evac. be necessary. Had to argue over an imposed seat change despite holding a 2 hour old agent issued boarding pass. Gate agent plainly lied in claiming an equipment change was making it necessary. At start of trip (1/14), not allowed to board connection and suffered an additional 5hr. layover delay due to baggage transfer problem. No compensation of any type graciously offered for any of the inconveniences."
Pros: "A business class upgrade, lay flat bed, very comfortable. Overall wonderful, made me want to take this flight every time I travel to Chile for business."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very attentive compared to other business class flights I've been on, especially Delta. Seemed a little rushed, felt as if I wasn't able to enjoy the business class amenities."
Pros: "The airline was very clean. The attendants were very nice. The food was excellent."
Cons: "Because of the terminal staff, I did not make this connection and had to spend the night in Santiago, and then wait for a flight to Sao Paulo and then to JFK, which added another 18 hours to my trip. This caused much inconvenience for me as I could not get home when I was supposed to. At least some of the terminal staff should have a good command of English and supervisors should be more willing to step in and help. I will try very hard NOT to fly with LAN again."
Cons: "Tiny uncomfortable OLD plane !!"
Pros: "The plane was fine once they boarded us and got us off the ground"
Cons: "Third time in a row we got a delay in Santiago for no apparent reason. Will find a different flight next time."
Pros: "On time, good service, great new entertainment system"
Cons: "Small cramped seats"
Pros: "Always great to be able to make the journey from Chile to North America during the day with a power outlet and plenty of space to work on my laptop. There were also plenty of movie options, and friendly and helpful staff."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Somehow the travel agent inform me of the revised departure time until 3 hours before the flight, but I don't know if that's the airline's fault. The only reasons I didn't rate the entertainment as excellent was that the system never played movies on the first try. I always had to do the sequence twice."
Pros: "Food was just OK; need to be improved considering that is an intrnational flight."
Cons: "The flight was substantially delayed without a good reason, and the land personnel was not friendly when asked for explanation. For such a long flight, individual screens are necessary."
Pros: "Took great care of us, food, drinks, and very nice crew."
Cons: "If I had 18 inches between me and the seat ahead of me I would say that was generous. The seat reclined all the way back so for 3 plus hours I had the person ahead of me in my lap"
Cons: "First the check in process at Santiago airport was two hours long. They were totally understaffed and I believe they were dealing with problems of overbooking flights. The last hour in line was spent while in the front of the line while people from the back were being called ahead to check in because they were on other flights even though those flights were hours away. Secondly I preichecked in online the day before, chose a window seat, and when I checked in at the airport I was assigned a seat that did not match what I had chosen, which was also next to my partner I was flying with. There was no explanation until the gate at which point they said they changed planes and randomly reshuffled everyone's seats, after a call to the airline the customer service representative could not explain why anyone would ever say they "randomly reshuffled." The plane was overbooked so they could not accommodate my request to sit next to my partner. Finally at no point was there a warning about bringing water bought in the airport onto the plane (after security) but only upon boarding did they take the water away, some notice would have been helpful and saved a bunch of waste and money."
Cons: "Our seats were assigned, then before boarding we were call by the front table and with out any explanation the lady at the desk give us new printing boarding pass with new different seats way in the back and separate our group leaving one of my child's by himself (5years old) Unacceptable."
Pros: "See Above. Same comment."
Cons: "Same comment as for the first leg of our flight."
Pros: "The crew was kind and attentive to our needs. They provided sufficient refreshments and were very professional with their service."
Cons: "1. Broken air-conditioning - The 8.5 hour flight from Santiago, Chile to Dallas, TX was extremely uncomfortable due to hot, stuffy air. The fans only circulated the body odors of those on board, and did little to dry the pools of sweat we were marinating in. Needless to say, we got negligible shut eye on the red eye. 2. Disorganized boarding - AA downsized our plane and reassigned seats to everyone so families were separated & scattered (which meant more crying babies). They waited until the last minute to assign my seat and boarding group. We were not satisfied with the new seat assignments, but were given no option to select new seats. 3. Food was over-salted and over-cooked. 4. On-board "entertainment" was "Ricky and the Flash". Enough said."
Cons: "Flight Delayed; bags delivered only 1,5 day after; small aircraft; no entertainment sYSTEM"
Pros: "Once onboard the crew and entertainment was great. The food was even edible."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. We were the first foully to be bumped. The boarding and checkin process is horrible! I think that LAN can and should do a lot better."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. It has been almost 3 days and I still haven't received it."
Pros: "A tiempo, tripulación amable: con una sonrisa siempre y disposición de atención a los pasajeros."
Pros: "They are very punctual and the service is pretty good. There is not too much food offered, but it is a 1h 45 min flight so everything goes very fast."
Cons: "It was a small aircraft with not too much space to rest, but it is a 1h 45 min flight so everything goes very fast.."
Pros: "The crew was amazing really nice"
Cons: "the boarding was delay awful and to be even worse, was delay from Santiago to Rio then was delay again from Rio to Miami"
Pros: "The flight was much awesome"
Cons: "The Frodo add more food please"
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Cons: "Flight crew member crept giving alcohol to passenger in 7A, who was harassing passengers around him the more he got drunk"
Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Cons: "I love it"
Cons: "I am glad I am still alive"
Pros: "That I could watch movies"
Cons: "How complicated it was to watch movies. Look at Netflix, they know how to do it right."
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for whatever reason. Did not give us a reason why. Also boarding was very haphazard. They just boarded all groups at once to try to make up some time. Almost did not make it to our connecting flight in time"
Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "I could not even get the flight rebooked I never got on the plane Los Angeles and they acted like I was there and all was well. I never checked in.. emergency led to a reschedule but contact was never accommodated."
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."
Cons: "Lost our bags on our 6 hour layover in Bogota and when we arrived in Lima (our last stop cusco) they were not nice about it at all. So rude. We almost missed our flight to cusco because of it as well even though we had almost a 3 hour layover. Took more than 24 hours to get the bags"
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "....on time ..."
Cons: ".... all good..."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Cons: "American Airlines baggage check-in at Paris CDG was total chaos. It took 1 1/2 hours. They need a systems analyst to review their process; especially for customers using their ticket kiosks during check-in when the lines get long. There's never a problem when the lines are small (duh !!). The staff involved in baggage check did well considering the poor process flow they had to deal with. The entire flight crew was great. It is management that is falling down on the job."
Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Pros: "Everybody answers me any questions that I have. And treat me very Gental. I thought that I lost a Lounge but in my next fly from Bogota to Pereira apair in Pereira airport."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for the most part friendly crew, with one exception. Flight left right on time and landed with no extra time to taxi. That was a welcomed benefit."
Cons: "No wifi on plane and no individual tv's for movie selections. Also had to pay extra for an aisle seat. Could not select seat at time of purchase. Didn't know if I called Iberia or American to make seat selection. Confusing with two different flight numbers. One from Iberia and one from American. Passengers should be made aware of which airline they are flying on at time of purchase."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Love the direct flights from RDU to West Coast. Wish there were more cities on the list. The flight was delayed about 45 minutes after we boarded for take off. I hate sitting on planes idling. The seats are already uncomfortable, then add more time onto that to sit. But we made up the time in the air for an on time arrival. Hmmmm?"
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight at dinner time and then the 3 hour time change, the snacks provided are not enough. You just have to remember to bring food on the plane and then risk annoying your fellow passengers with the food/dinner dining space. More checks of drinks would be nice too. Cost cutting measures, but minimal considering a packed flight and pretty high ticket price."
Pros: "1. Heathrow - transit very professional 2. Heathrow - Philly - flight AA 734 was excellent. 3. I like the AA concept of making fliers pay for hard drinks."
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: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Boarding agent was unpleasant. Crew was incompetent. Asked for Woodford Reserve. She gave us Jack Daniels. Asked for Gingerale. She Made an inappropriate comment as to why she was depleted of Gingerale. She offered it to us only after we pointed it out to her on her cart. Man in seat next to me did not get served a drink at all. Did not offer headphones. No wifi for 3/4 of trip."
Pros: "The Crew was nice ."
Cons: "They displayed for three hours something on TV, but the entire plane had no sound. When asked the crew will tell you to listen on channel 13 or 14. I told them there was no sound. I was sitting in First Class and went to check with a friend that was way back in Economy, same thing. So i told the that to the crewmember who just told me, sorry nothing I can do about. Which I can understand. What I don't understand is why they continued displaying a mute TV set for three hours. Why not just shut it off? BTW, my daughter flew from LA to Boston that same day and exactly the same thing happened on her plane."
Pros: "Worst plane to travel 5 1/2 hours. Almost no legroom, very small seats."
Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"
Pros: "Their customer service sucks."
Cons: "Their customer service sucks."
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."
Pros: "I would like to include these miles to accumulate them. I flight with Latam to Río de Janeiro renta y. How can I get them?"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."
Pros: "Check in and boarding was quick"
Cons: "Paying extra for seats"
Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."
Pros: "Modern plane"
Cons: "Required to board bus for a half minute a ride to get on plane in front of "gate". Business class only 8 smallish seats. Economy have was as cramped as ever. Long restroom lines."
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
