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.
Pros: "professional service from employees..."
Cons: "A snack / water :)"
Pros: "Muito confortável. Boarding muito rápido. Muito bem atendido a bordo."
Cons: "Infelizmente o serviço de bordo não pode ser apreciado, mas entendo que é pela segurança dos passageiros."
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Cons: "It took 1.5 hours to leave the tarmac in NYC. We just sat there with little communication."
Cons: "I traveled with LATAM from USA to Lima however from Lim to Cusco was terrible. I was told st check in that there were no more seats left on the flight. I was told it’s legal for them to sell more tickets than seats and there is nothing they could do but place me in the next available in flight ~4hrs"
Pros: "Nice crew, easy on line and airport check in. Flight slightly delayed but arrived on time."
Cons: "The San Andrés airport was way too small for all the passengers. People sitting in the aisles, clogging up fire exits, Very unsafe. The AC was too low, locals were fanning themselves. Gate was changed, crowds pushing to line up. I’ve never wanted to get on a plane and OUT of the airport so much."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly! The seat was great!"
Cons: "English speaking staff."
Pros: "There was an empty seat next to mine and that made the trip bearable!"
Cons: "More comfortable seats and ample food selection (especially for snacks)."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a little better and bathrooms bigger"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "For the 2 hours flight, I had to endure some strong stench coming from fellow passengers. Extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time Free snacks and drinks"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was efficient. I’ve never been on a flight where they board window seats first, then middle, then aisle. I can see how that makes a lot of sense and makes the process better."
Cons: "I wasn’t sure why my small rolling luggage was being tagged and told to be left at the gate. Others had their rolling pieces brought onto the plane and there was enough room, so I was a little worried about if someone was going through it or if it would make it to the destination. It did show up."
Cons: "offering some free snacks and soda (3 hour flight, other than water, everything else is charged). An online entertainment system that actually works."
Pros: "Left on time"
Pros: "Price was reasonable as well as ease of booking"
Cons: "Fix their flipping seating algorithm so you that family members are seated together. I will only use Latam again as the very last resort."
Cons: "All the flight"
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: "Flight attendants were very polite and the personal entertainment screens were great!"
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."
Cons: "The airport @ Madrid Barajas"
Pros: "The airline and travel agency never informed me that this flight was cancelled. I almost got stuck at JFK."
Cons: "Everything about the airline and the travel agency since they never took the time to inform me that it was cancelled."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to my destination and Home safetly."
Cons: "The service is terrible . They lose bags , the planes are dirty, you can still see head grease on the windows and old dried up food on the seat backs. We were delayed 40 minutes. No annoucement or notification . The staff are rude , and don’t care . Very unreliable airline - the food is disgusting."
Pros: "Cheap flight, decent service, clean and safe plane overall"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about an hour but no communication from the airline as to why"
Pros: "Friendly crew Good entertainment options with the Latam Entertainment app"
Cons: "Boarding process not organized Seat pitch extremely tight Poor complimentary food options Flew Latam during a trip through South America and needed to change route for my wife, Latam told us we had no options and we’re forced to canceled remaining 3 flights of 2 week leg of the vacation. Terrible customer service will never fly Latam again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very good and so was the overall service."
Cons: "Seat rowa too close together, not enough legroom."
Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."
Pros: "I slept most of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "Service was good... brought me a second meal after first dinner wasn't filling enough. Excellent entertainment system with tons of new hit movies I wanted to watch"
Cons: "Not super comfortable but that's typical for these flights. Waiting a while at baggage claim."
Pros: "nice space in business. Great airline !"
Cons: "the meal I chose was too small. I landed in Bogota hungry. But it was my fault"
Cons: "Delay, boarding through shutter, unsafe shutter parking,"
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"
Cons: "My original flight was supposed to land at 8:55pm but I was notified that it had been changed to land closer to midnight which was a problem because my hotel closed at midnight. After talking to the customer service agent at the airport he told me the reason my flight had changed was because my original airplane was flying out of another airport and the only way to make the flight that I had booked was to take a cab ride to the other airport. What he didn't explain was that its a 45+ minute drive between the two airports and I only had about 1.5 hours to get my bag, get on the taxi, check in at the other airport, clear security AND customs. Somehow by the grace of god it all came together but it was certainly a harrowing experience, not to mention the $45 I lost in cab fares. I cannot recommend LAN/LATAM."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Pros: "Absolutely everything about the flight: on time, attentive and friendly flight attendant, clean bathrooms, fast luggage return."
Cons: "It took 40min to drop my bags off after having done web check in. There were only 4 people in front of me. Terribly system for check in and bag drop but everything else was great so I could overlook this in the future. Just plan for it."
Pros: "Avión silencioso"
Cons: "45 minutos de espera en tierra al aterrizar"
Pros: "The onboard crew was great."
Cons: "Computers offline in La Paz resulted in absurdly long wait to check in. In Santiago waited a ridiculous amount of time for buses to take passengers to the terminal."
Pros: "Super comfortable seats. First time i've ever been able to sleep on airplane seats because the seats go far enough back that you don't fall over sideways when you sleep. Food was great. The service was wonderful. The airplanes are new, with new technology"
Cons: "worst service ever"
Pros: "The inflight service and assistance provided by Teresita Torres"
Pros: "Entertainment, service, food"
Cons: "Waiting in long lines in Miami to check in, over an hour. And then they let other passengers who came late for their flight go in front of me. At that point I thought that would be the first and last time I travel Latam."
Pros: "While I had no problem on this flight, my dealings with Latam agents in phone and in person have been horrific. I had to purchase a new ticket and dealing with them was terrible - long hold times for simple questions, incorrect ticketing, lack of empathy or service attitude. Fly Aerolieas instead."
Pros: "Great flight to Peru from NYC on Latam. Comfortable, clean and service was great. I would fly again on this airline."
Cons: "Staff spoke limited English which was a bit of a surprise on a US flight."
Pros: "Good snack box and drink service. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The flight started boarding 30 minutes late."
Cons: "Overall a horrible experience. Would never choose American Airlines given other choices. This was the second time this year I was held at an airport over 24 hrs due to plane maintenance."
Pros: "I was arriving only 45 minutes prior to departure time. Not able to check in my luggage. AA ticketing agent allowed me to bring my garment bag through security and to be checked in at the gate. Thank you very much!"
Cons: "Nothing really. Very satisfied customer here."
Cons: "less expensive wifi. more confortable seats"
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 boarding was fast."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Pros: "Crew was kind and attentive"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 hours and sat on tarmac in nyc for 45 minutes"
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 crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
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: "Crew was amazing. FA's were great."
Cons: "On time performance."
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"
Cons: "Having to walk from concourse b to concourse e for my connecting flight in less than 15min before the doors were shut. Was literally in my seat for 5min and the door was shut. Most people (older or families) would have missed it. Shame on CLT or American Airlines"
Pros: "Flight attendant did not speak French"
Cons: "Wifi barely worked, not worth the money"
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "This flight had nice touch screens and a good selection of movies. The drinks were free and the food offered was decent."
Cons: "I don't like having to board a bus to get to the plane."
Pros: "Everything on time."
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."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient the flight left on time in spite of rain. Lots of air traffic departing JFK and we were delayed in the take off queue for an hour. The captain made up time and arrived Paris almost as scheduled. Food was very good for coach class and it was a hot meal."
Cons: "The coach seats even on this 6.5 hour flight were uncomfortable. The seat backs have no support. The aircraft was an older 767 and did not have entertainment screens on the seat backs. Thus there were no games or other interactive programs. It had the overhead monitors for movies. Hopefully they will modify that plane soon."
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
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."
Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes. 10 minutes to open the door. Had to walk .5 mile to get to customs. Had express pass because of connecting flight Still had to wait in line with express pass. Then had to transfer to new terminal. Trains out at ohare so buses. Waited another 30 minutes for a bus then 15 bus ride. Missed flight and had to set around for 4 hours for next. Totally unorganized. Not this way in Japan."
Pros: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "The on time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."

Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."

Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "I got an upgrade which was nice. The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Ran out of popcorn but really nothing"
Cons: "Had to cancel cruise but could not cancel flights without paying fees that were half the fare price. Would have been cheaper if we bought direct from the airline."
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "We got to watch movies for free, and we got to eat twice as well."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"

Cons: "crew could have been more professional, the signs for boarding were confusing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the crew was excellent. The boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "My center seat, which was assigned, put me in an extremely uncomfortable position physically for the entire 14 hour flight. My two seatmates extended physically into my space, and minimal legroom meant by knees were pressed against the seat in front. I was not happy at the lack of seat choice."
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Pros: "Liked the comfort of the plane, on time, and smooth touchdown"
Cons: "Food was dried out, crew was extremely slow to dispense beverages and food"
Pros: "Great plane B 787"
Cons: "Paid online for food and most choices gone Overpriced"
Cons: "No potable water on board meant no tea or coffee."
Cons: "Luggage took forever to get in Halifax"

Cons: "no movies, charge for food"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the flight. The flight had some nice"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food options, Air Canada used to have tasty food!"
Pros: "The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "The seat was kind of tight."
Cons: "Started off by being 40 mins delayed. Not bad, compared to the 4 hour delay I had going to Vancouver. Flight was super uncomfortable. Upon arrival to Toronto. The gate had ice on it. So we had to wait in the plane for over an hour before we could get to a gate and off the plane. And then the entire plane of people (300-400 people I believe?) had to wait for our bags to come out for TWO HOURS! Meanwhile flights from Vancouver that we’re supposed to leave after us , left before us, got there before us, and got their bags before us. Horrible trip. I could not believe how unprofessional and unprepared Air Canada and the Toronto airport was during the holidays!"
Cons: "Why did I have to pay to select my seat? Isn't that the point of purchasing a seat at all? Silly."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "Food was not as good time"
Pros: "Air Canada has one of the best buy on board menu's of any North American carrier. They even allow you to purchase Business Class meals (subject to availability of course). Flying on the older 767-300ER also has more shoulder and leg room than some of Air Canada's newer configurations for the 787 and 777."
Cons: "Air Canada's boarding process is a bit frustrating. On American Airlines and United Flight attendants make announcements over the PA to (a) step out of the aisle to let people pass, and (b) place larger suitcases in the overhead and smaller bags under the seat. That way they try to ensure there is enough bin space to accommodate everyone. Passengers on Air Canada stuff everything in to the overhead bin and nothing under their seat, leaving little for those boarding after and delaying the flight because flight attendants are looking for bin space. If they were more pro-active, it would speed things up."
Pros: "The flight was underbooked, so there was extra seat space. Our delay was cut from 90 min to just 30 min"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to fog in San Francisco"
Pros: "good to have 3 meals for this long haul flight"
Cons: "Flight delay more than 1 hour ! Took very very long to board Poor choice of movie. Too few, Too old"
Pros: "Customs and immigration happens in Canada, not US"
Cons: "Delays, computer malfunction during boarding"
Cons: "Didn't board as I missed the connection."
Pros: "Not much of anything"
Cons: "Lack of in-flight entertainment, uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Your customers are nicer than your staff."
Cons: "Firstly I will start with the lack of service we provided when trying to get seats together after checking in online. We rang and were told to try at the airport counter. Then at the airport counter we were told to try at the gate and then at the gate when I went to ask I was told to go get both tickets before they told us that there was no 2 seats together anyway rather than looking first. All whilst explaining this was our honeymoon and we would really like to sit together as husband and wife. Then once we boarded the guy sitting next to me was happy to swap seats with my wife as he had back problems and had asked for an aisle seat but was denied. Finally we are underway and I find that my entertainment touch screen doesn't work so even though it is one i can't select anything to watch. Plus to top it off the seat arm rest was broken. Obviously with a fairly full flight with no 2 seats together their wasn't much that could be done immediately but where is the maintenance and actual physical plane quality? Do your engineers or staff not check things? Overall dispite this being our national carrier I am ashamed to claim that. Many of our overseas visitors for the wedding from Australia and Europe also had similar complaints."
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "After a bad connection, it was nice to have a smooth flight."
Pros: "The crew was always as good as can be expected BUT THE DELAYS AND LACK OF COMMUNICATION WAS THE ACTUAL LOWEST LEVEL OF AIR FLIGHT WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. TIME AFTER TIME DELAY AFTER DELAY RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS BOTH WAYS!!!"
Cons: "PLEASE SEE WHAT WE DID LIKE HOWEVER AGAIN TO REPEAT THE NUMBER OF DELAYS RESULTING IN MISSED FLIGHTS WAS ABOVE AND BEYOND BELIEVABLE. NO COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GATE AGENTS AND INCORRECT INFO ON FLIGHTS AND DEPARTURE TIMES WAS TRULY BEYOND BELIEF"
Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "delayed by 4 hours - had to miss my onward flight & have only 1.5 hours instead of 8 hours"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized, one of the ladies was rude and I did not get window, even though I requested with enough time."
Cons: "dirt and stuff on floor between floor and wall, bad, never seen that before in a nearly new plane"
Pros: "I liked having Nexus get me through air Canada's malfunctioning Website to airport chaotic check-in otherwise may have missed my flight! Actual flight was smooth,quick and comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. Airplane interior open and bright. Bathrooms clean and well supplied."
Cons: "Customer's time is valuable too! Air Canada website check-in malfunctioning causes anger, frustration and chaos at home and continues through airport check-in. HUNDREDS of angry, frustrated customers paid for their tickets, tried to check-in online and arrived early all converged into one CHAOTIC crowd. ADDRESS these issues, FIX YOUR WEBSITE, TREAT YOUR HARDWORKING, PAYING CUSTOMERS with DIGNITY and RESPECT they DESERVE. Competing Airlines are waiting for your dissatisfied customers."
Pros: "Generally the flight was just fine."
Cons: "Nothing stood out as being a problem."
Pros: "We didnt crash"
Cons: "We didn't crash"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "I am not an especially large person and felt squeezed into my middle seat without any room to move without bumping into either of the people beside me, who were also small to normally sized. Very uncomfortable! I will avoid this airline again if possible, it was not a pleasant experience. I also didn't have enough room to put my backpack under the seat in front of me and was further confined."
Cons: "Airline oversold seats for my son's flight -- even though I bought my ticket back in April for a flight in November. This is absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Pros: "The crew were helpful & friendly. The flight arrived on time."
Cons: "The rows of seats were too close together for comfort."
Pros: "That there were no delays."
Cons: "TV was frozen, meaning nothing to do for 5 hours, no alternate option. flight was full, no room for overhead baggage. Spent entirely too much money for these conditions."
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Pros: "Entertainment/Media Options"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; snacks are charged; flight was rocky"
Pros: "Flight crew was great. Aircraft was great."
Cons: "Food could have been a little better."
Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed several times, and then they lost my baggage, when I landed in Chicago, no bag. A person from United Airlines called me at 7:00 AM the next morning and said that they had my bag. He directed it to GRB that day. Thanks to him I got my bag back!"
Cons: "Missed it due to our first flight being delayed- ended up with ANA air. SCORE!"

Pros: "Great flight crew, fairly comfortable seats. Made a 10-hour flight pretty bearable."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
