Our yoga retreat was cancelled and besides not refunding is, they would not even let us change dates or locations. As a matter of fact they wouldn’t even talk to us and kept referring to the travel agent, who said they couldn’t change anything and it was up to the airline to do so. They passed the buck until it was too late to do anything about it. Avoid Latham and Budget Air for your travel plans.
Cons: "Terrible airline and airport system... the boarding system is a disaster... after waiting in line for so long they send you to different counters to pay for bags... on top of that they didn’t check in one of the 6 in my group by the attendant’s mistake and they closed the flight in us...there is a bussing system that “takes you to the plane” and when we finally made it to our gate the bus made their last of the 2 trips to the plane. So we lost our flight to Cusco and ruined our entire first day of touring in Cusco..... your system or multiple check in/ cashier/customer service counters is a disaster and it makes zero sense. I will NOT fly latam again."
Pros: "Plane was new"
Cons: "Airport is a disaster. It is a single gate, bamboo-walled open air space with about half the seating necessary for a flight. Latam charges almost $2 even for a cup of “coffee” that is really just hot water, powdered Nescafé and powdered milk! It hardly seems worth the effort and really slows down service."
Cons: "It took 1.5 hours to leave the tarmac in NYC. We just sat there with little communication."
Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."
Cons: "Having more student deals."
Pros: "Forced me to check my carry on even though it was perfectly legal"
Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."

Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Ground staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed"
Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"
Pros: "The crew was ok. They seemed really hectic between Heathrow to Rome."
Cons: "The seats were too tiny for business class. Nowhere to put anything. So close to next passenger. I would not fly business class again on BA Terrible entertainment. No interesting movies. I guess they tried to have movies only with British actors/actresses. Nothing current. That’s pretty bad for almost. 10 hours flt. He seats in business class between Heathrow to Rome were like regular seats except with the middle seat blocked off. Food was just ok."
Pros: "Not amazing...rather lack of attention."
Cons: "It was 20 of us in the cabin. Better attention? More alcohol?"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was awesome. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was cold and the flight was delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "Too many delays including leading the gate due to ground staff leaving equipment behind the plane .... really ?! On the upside - announcements from 1st officer was good"
Pros: "Crew nice and friendly. Handled a drunk passenger very professionally. On time arrival and easy boarding."
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable - TV attachment sticking into my leg all night! Food the worst I’ve had on BA, dry and tasteless."
Pros: "Plane changed to an A380"
Cons: "Waited over half an hour to get off at Heathrow owing to staff shortage so the air bridge took a while to happen!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Cons: "Connecting flight was missed. Too short of time to pass through security and line-up"
Pros: "Food ok and crew nice."
Cons: "The flight was bumpy for 5 hours from USA to England scary ride"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Infant ticketing was royally messed up on the was out and back. Ticket booking over phone took two hours. Ticketing at seat took nearly 45 minutes. Absurd waste of time."
Cons: "We were delayed because we were waiting on a crew member. It was kind of ridiculous"
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: "The crew was very nice. The seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "If I can avoid flying American I will... on my way to Rome, 4 hours delay due to technical issues. Same plane on our way back, 2 hours delay due to technical issues. I did not feel safe knowing that plane has so many technical issues. Had to wait almost an hour on the plane to get to our gate."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Better plane, better notice on delays, not only to weather"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
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: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
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: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"
Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."
Cons: "Saw many backpacks inefficiently stored overhead, yet I was told to check in my carry on even though I had paid to upgrade my seat. Staff extremely unhelpful and clueless."
Pros: "I am so disappointed of this trip and United airlines"
Cons: "The worst trip with United airlines specially from Huston to El Salvador"
Pros: "I LIKED THE WAY I WAS TREATED BY PERSONNEL AT FLIGHT DEPARTURE ZONES ESPECIALLY IN VANCOUVER AND CHICAGO. WHEN BOARDING THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE POLITE AND HELPFUL IN GETTING MY CARRY ON SUITCASE PROPERLY STOWED."
