Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was could have been firmer and a little more space between the rows in economy would help greatly for comfort for all."

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Cons: "More refreshments"

Cons: "Qatar Airways are the best"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and welcoming and warm."
Cons: "The toilets was not clean and the boarding delayed without any explanation"

Pros: "The crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "The food was disgusting The plane is dirty The bags are treated badly"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The staff at Qatar Airways did everything they could to make this flight one of the most enjoyable of my entire life. The food was well prepared and exceeded my expectations. I also enjoyed that the food was served at times that minimized the impact of the time change."
Cons: "The movie and TV options were impressive; however, in-flight WiFi and power would have been convenient and improved the entertainment on board the flight."

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Food , good accommodation, friendly treat!"
Cons: "No thing really!"

Pros: "Crew, service, price"
Cons: "Seats are small"

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Best host staff"

Pros: "Never spending too long waiting for anything."
Cons: "More realistic options to upgrade. Example I can board a train in London and upgrade to first class for £20 to Edinburgh. If you have a coach class or business class empty. Have capacity to feed extra or not. Last minute upgrades can be both a revenue stream and another option to further satisfy some customers. Particularly older generations that can afford and would fund such a win win appealing."

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "Decent leg room nice food"
Cons: "No in flight wifi"

Cons: "One restroom was out of service"

Pros: "Great amenities and service - fed often throughout trip and great console with games, movies, etc."
Cons: "The neck rest was a bit tall and deep for a shorter person with a smaller neck - it caused me some discomfort while trying to rest."

Pros: "I liked how kind and attentive the staff were."
Cons: "The connection in Doha was a pain...one has to one end of the airport to the other...go through security and then come ALL THE WAY BACK! UGH!"

Pros: "Flight was on time. Excellent price. When comparing the flight from Manila to Doha and Doha to Philadelphia. The flight to Philadelphia was excellent,superior due to the crew and aircraft."
Cons: "Waiting area at the Manila gate was over crowed, needed to sit on the floor. The entertainment system on the 777 was hard to operate, slow to respond."

Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "Again, the crew were top notch"
Cons: "Comfort and available entertainment were so-so"

Pros: "Felt like a new plane, with great service!"

Pros: "the flight was comfortable"

Pros: "Everything else"
Cons: "Too much air condition... cold!!"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good, newer wide body aircraft. Good service. No hassles, really. Would fly again. Overall good experience."
Cons: "Newest seating arrangement in 777 300 ER just too crammed. Used to be better. Nothing special about this flight, was expecting a little more space, a little less crowded, a bit better service. But my flight was short hop from BKK to HAN, last leg of flight originating in Doha."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall - Flight was good."
Cons: "Food quality should be improved. Most of the staff were very courteous, except on two minor request. I guess the stewardess was a little stress due a very demanding passenger, but should not be reflected to other customers."

Cons: "Food is not up to the standard. They make announcements that there will be snacks like sandwiches and ice creams, but they don't offer that openly. You have to ask for snacks. Now we, US citizens don't like to ask for food just so you know. The crew should offer. if we don't need the food, we can always say no."

Pros: "Timing n service n crew r nice n friendly"
Cons: "Older airplane"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "everything were so bad and the service was awful ,"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and friendly. Qatar airlines also provided tons of food. Lastly the tv/games was a good source of entertainment."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Cons: "Worst customer service"

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Wifi in the plane is great"
Cons: "In the B10 gate of Doha airport are only 15 chairs and we were around 100 persons waiting to open the gate. It was uncomfortable In the flight Doha Phuket wi-fi did not work in the first economy sector. It was a big problem to us, it was necessary to go in the second part of the economy sector to stay over the wifi. The crew did not solve the issue."

Pros: "Attentive flight attendants, good entertainment selection, and yummy food."

Pros: "I like each part of service"

Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."
Cons: "Toilet out of order from beginning of very long flight. Food ordinary. Doha airport transfer awful."

Cons: "My bag was overweight so o checked online and it said that the charge would be $50, but when i got to the airport in Dubai the charge was $75 with no explanation about thr difference. When we arrived in LA we set on the tarmac foe about 45mins waiting for an open gate. Wasnt the best experience"

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the cabins were welll presented. Take off was on time."
Cons: "A very small glitch was the cabin service. The cabin announcements were read out too fast to follow! Also, the cabin crew seemed to be in a rush to move the food tray away even though I was still sipping my juice. Maybe this was the early morning energy ...Slow down, guys!"

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."

Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."

Cons: "The wheel on my bag was smashed..."

Cons: "Entertainment system on our section of the Qantas A330-200 had failed and was not operational for the entire trip. This meant no movies, no music, no safety video or announcements and no flight map for the entire journey of almost 8 hours. Crew were not very responsive to this and it seemed like a low priority vs everything else they were doing. After almost 2 hours and complaingpts from a number of the 24 passengers impacted, they did a "soft and hard reset" of the system which did nothing. Initially crew suggested they had an alternative (Tablets) but subsequently denied this. I felt they had already handed these out and did not hav enough. Having been the very first person to raise this issue (10 mins before the flight was to leave), I felt I should have been offered one, but clearly they did not do so. Altogether pretty disgusted with crew attitude and responsiveness. We also felt the food was of very poor quality too - it was too salty and what should have been crisp was soggy. We will NEVER fly Qantas again (even a code share)."

Pros: "The crew"

Cons: "On time, upgraded"

Cons: "If there is a delay don’t schedule new flight at midnight ,"

Pros: "Decent food on long-haul flight, and good entertainment."
Cons: "The flight crew was an hour late. Therefore our flight was delayed and we missed our connection. They then separated me and husband on our next flight and put us in the back of the plane. No one apologized once and the entire crew appeared quite indifferent and unfriendly."

Spent over 27 hours in airport before I finally began flying. WAS NOT COMPENSATED FOR MY HASSLE and lost money on hotels and lost wages."

Pros: "Flight was very late."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was switched. Seats given away. Were placed on other flights arriving to our destination 7 hours after we were suppose to. Horrible experience. We didn’t travel through city we were suppose to. Worse flying experience in years. Our seats had been confirmed upon booking which apparently means nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After one hour waiting to claim my bag, mine was the first to show up, but it was open. The airline staff broke the lock and took the jewels I had inside. Now, the airline is not assuming the responsibility for what they stole from me."

Pros: "Great crew, flight and, onboard service."

Pros: "Flat bed. New plane. Amenities such as a Tumi bag given out were good"
Cons: "We had seats in 6th row which was right behind the galley area where the flight attendants had their seats. One sat in left side of plane and one on right side. They talked talked talked to each other the entire flight. Not good. They we’re not next to each other so their voices were quite raised. This was th case on all our connecting flights"

Cons: "2 hours waiting at the check in with just two counters open fot most of the time. Poor English of the staff. A lot of people jumped the queue both at check in and while boatding. Total chaos and disorganization. Staff unhelpful, lax and passive."

Pros: "The price was much cheaper than other airlines so it was worth the hassle."
Cons: "Check-in at Lima was awful. The line was extremely long snaking back probably a few hundred feet. Stood in line for well over an hour. This resulted in a very rushed boarding process. Our breakfast tasted awful. I had called customer service ahead of time to check on luggage policies and everything they told me differed from what I actually experienced. The flight attendants were helpful though. Bags were handled fine."

Pros: "Copa Airlines had good food and acceptable leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "We we're rebooked on Copa Airlines from Avianca after a delay and would have to go to Panama first, then Cancun, and arrive around 10 pm instead of 11 am. Do not fly Avianca out of JFK!"

Pros: "Comfort Seats Service"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Perfecto"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay inside the airplane without air conditioning. This delay risked my next flights (connections). Everything inside the airplane is old and terribly maintained."

Pros: "Las películas"

Pros: "My flight had an unnecessary stop at Bogota, when the lady on the counter asked me where I was heading to and found out it was a place so close she asked me if I wouldn't mind going on a direct flight of 2 hours instead of waiting for a 19 hour flight. I love Avianca and I've never preferred another airline. Their customers attention is great."
Cons: "The only problem I had is that they were out of one of the meals when they got to my seat."

Pros: "great selection of movies...outstanding crew"
Cons: "Earphones were pretty bad, could hardly hear...good thing I had brought my own"

Cons: "The original flight was booked to dec 11th 2016 at 10:20am. On dex 9th at about 10pm i got a text message and email telling that my flight was rescheduled and asking me to call Avianca. So i did, and my new flight was booked to leave 2:18pm, arriving in Salvador at night. I asked for options, they offered me a flight at 6am and another at 8:30 am. I said that i would talk to my party and return the call, and we choose the 8:30 flight. When i called back, they said this flight had only 3 seats (we were a party of 6 adt, 1 chd and 2 inf). In the avianca site they were offering the flight for the whole party, but, of course, with a higher rate that i paid in june. The person said she coulndt book it for me, and i should call the SAC (client service) to try to solve the problem. I called the SAC and after 40min in the phone they were able to put everybody on the desired flight. I felt that they were trying to rebook us on a cheaper flight, letting the seats with highest fares to be sold to someone else. Since it was their fault the flight changing, i think it was a bad experience in my first flight with Avianca. Probably will avoid them in the future."

Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "Staff in Santiago deliberately lied regarding status of connecting flight in Bogota. When I asked for clarification the supervisor was dismissive. No update on flight delay provided at gate. In flight entertainment for our row did not work on a 5 hour flight! Flight crew made no effort to compensate for the huge inconvenience."

Pros: "Friendly and on time!"

Pros: "The flight departured and arrived on time"
Cons: "The food could be better."

Cons: "They overbooked the flight from Santiago to Bogota so I had to travel for 15 more hours."

Pros: "Clean and professional"
Cons: "Food was lacking."

Pros: "I would say the crew is nice and boarding process was easy."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours in Santiago while on the runway due to technical difficulties. This caused my missed connection in Lima, therefore I had to wait from 10:45am to 5:30pm in Lima airport for a flight to Bogota, then after that catch another flight to Miami. I lost a whole day I had planned in Miami, arrived at 2:30AM when nobody could pick me up. Avianca didn't give me a voucher for food or transportation or even access to VIP lounges in Lima. I will never fly Avianca."

Pros: "Loved it all. Thanks for helping me get home to Australia when other airlines couldn't."

Pros: "This was a redeye flight which are never the best. We upgraded to first class for a chance to sleep. The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling."

Pros: "Really nice crew"
Cons: "The flight could’ve been on time and not delayed 24 hours"

Cons: "Bathroom floors could be better."

Pros: "Good on flight entertainment"

Cons: "Delayed several times. switched to a later flight hoping that flight would not be delayed. That flight was delayed. I had to sit on the plane for over an hour before we took off. Didn’t make it to Chattanooga until almost12 am. hoping to fly delta for next trip to Dominican Rep. but now I’m unsure"

Cons: "The plane needs more bathrooms."

Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable, crew was great, overall a smooth flight"
Cons: "The fact that airlines are trying to charge for every little add-on is pretty annoying. 2 dollars for headphones? Don't even get me started with their snack boxes..."

Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at LAX and even though we made it to the gate to fly out on our connecting flight they had given our tickets away and booked us on a flight 5 hrs later. They told us our bags would be transferred. They werent and now both my daughter and i are starting out a dream vacation with no l"

Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."

Pros: "I asked twice for a second declaration form as I made a mistake on the first and both requests were ignored by cabin crew. 2 crew members said that they would accommodate me but neither delivered."
Cons: "Not enough searband leg room"

Pros: "Even though we were in the very back row, we did not experience a foul smell from the restrooms. This was a very nice relief. It is bad enough that the seats don't recline and there is no window in the very back row but prior experience with the added nausea of foul restroom order has been a serious insult to injury. In this case there was really minimal odor. Also since we are traveling as a family we are very happy that we were seated together. We have experienced the past that sometimes our seats will be fragmented and that creates major challenges when you are traveling with young children. However on this particular flight the ride was rough during both takeoff and landing, a lot of side to side shimmy. Also the cabin pressure varied quite a bit during landing causing all the kids to complain about some discomfort in their ears."

Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Flight attendants could have been a little more friendly and helpful."

Pros: "The food that was served was good. The crew was attentive and nice ."
Cons: "Comfort seats didn’t seem like much different than reg seats. Didn’t like the cattle call boarding process at lax ."

Pros: "my seat did not recline so i was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "I had a whole row to myself and was able to sleep"
Cons: "No movie selection, no blankets."

Cons: "Overall the flight was good. It would be nice to see if we are Lincoln and Wi-Fi and the greatest selection of movies to its offerings."

Pros: "spacious comfortable seats"
Cons: "I waited in line at Virgin Australia for 35 minutes only to be told that I was actually on a Delta flight even though my itinerary said Virgin Australia. good thing I was early to airport or I would of missed my flight because I had to go find Delta check in"

Cons: "Customs officials are incredibly un-helpful and slow. I almost missed the next flight because of how slow was that part. I hope Delta can speak up for the passengers, because we cannot express that to these rude people."

Pros: "After being redirected and behind on travel plans due to weather and missed flights this was a welcomed relief. Everything went as planned and staff was very helpful."

Pros: "Flight Attendant and great Boeing 737-800 was amazing"

Pros: "We traveled first class. Plane needs an update. Seats were not comfortable and did not work correctly. the crew had to continually pull the seat cushions up and reset the elec mechanism b"

Pros: "adjustable head rest is great - being given a pillow is great - the plane was not too cold to sleep either (as they often are)"

Pros: "My comfort zone seat"

Pros: "I liked the fact that I was able to watch a movie on my phone."
Cons: "The flight was very rough at times."

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"

Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."

Pros: "Nothing. Delta is the worst. Delta is awful. Don't fly Delta."
Cons: "I wouldn't know how our flight to Sioux Falls was. Delta left without us, after they made us late. We left DC late because of Delta's inefficient boarding process. We landed in Atlanta late. Our flight to Sioux Falls left early, without us. My pregnant wife and I made it to the gate 4 minutes before the scheduled departure and they told us the plane was already gone and there was no way for us to get on the plane. Our bags did make it to Sioux Falls, so my wife didn't have her prenatal vitamins, , we had no clean clothes and we were forced to spend the night in Atlanta. The saddest part of yet another terrible experience with Delta was that they offered us a "discounted" room at a terrible Howard Johnson for $72. I looked online and the same hotel was $65 to book on Kayak. So basically Delta was trying to scam us after they screwed us. Thanks Delta! Instead we paid $200+ to stay at an airport hotel. Every time I fly Delta I regret it, yet occasionally I get forced to take their awful airline to get somewhere I need to go. It never fails to add another bad Delta experience to my long list of failings from this SAD!!! airline."

Pros: "Requested a special meal over the phone when I checked in i.e. 24 hours before talk off, customer support confirmed my request but the crew told me that they had not received anything as such....crew didn't even bothered to offer any alternative. I was fine, didn't have any reservations but my wife and kid went starving all the way remember it was a 15 hour flight"
Cons: "Hospitality"

Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."

Pros: "Lincoln ground staff is top notch. Friendly Midwest people."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. No delays were encountered. Everyone behaved themselves.no"
Cons: "Only problem was I couldn't get connected to the wi-GI."

Pros: "Crew were lovely, boarding wasn't too painful."
Cons: "Payed extra for a seat that was the seat I selected. Totally disappointed"

Pros: "Food was OK, ice cream at mid-flight was my favorite thing. I liked the choice of movies. Drinks are also good but why not include pure cranberry juice? It goes great with vodka."
Cons: "Boarding is ridiculous. Everyone who is not some kind of VIP is asked to line up and is treated like cattle. 5-feet tall woman holds above her head a sign with the zone currently boarding. Nobody can hear or see anything. Why not use the big LCD displays at the gate??? In the plane they had to restart the computer system as some TVs were not working and it took longer than they said. Toilets were kind of stinky and I could smell them from my seat on row 26. Blankets are way too thin for the blasting AC."

Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"

Pros: "We travelled Economy comfort which has extra leg room & recline, which is great for a long flight such as this. Food was ok, crew were great & there was a lot of good entertainment to watch? A nice smooth ride down to Sydney."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great & coffee as with most Airlines is terrible."

Pros: "Flight itself was mostly fine. Adequate overhead space. Boarding process ok."
Cons: "Adequate legroom but seat space so tight could not even reach things dropped on the floor. Seats are HARD! Some USB sockets didn't work. Entertainment system is old and clunky, often didn't respond to touches. Crew was grudgingly OK, didn't seem to want to be there to help. Food was a disaster. Special meals were all wrong. Food brought was mostly terrible."

Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"

Cons: "Muy mal el embarque y la entrega de maleta express pésimo servicio, al embarque me hicieron entrar como si estuviera abordando y luego me hicieron esperas como si estuviera afuera esperando el llamado de mi fila en zona de embarque"

Pros: "Yes ..... but you have to pay in order to fly confirtable , they dont give you alternative!"
Cons: "Not to pay for ítems that are bebefits with Workdmember credit CARD Santander I paíd luggage and they dont return money baca even if you made the mistake"

Pros: "Everything on time. 30 minutes ahead of schudle"

Cons: "Space!!!!"

Pros: "The gate agent refused allow us to board..even though fully paid we were checked in and had boarding passes IN HAND..said there was a problem caused by kiwi sjd fid no honor our ticket. We missed 2 planes, had to find. A hotel in Mexico City and buy new tickets to get home. INSANE"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very attentive and friendly personnel; efficient and timely boarding: surprisingly good meals"

Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"

Cons: "We got off onto a shaky set of stairs that surely would have been a safety violation in the states."

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

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

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Organization, information and communication"

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

Pros: "Friendly employees"
Cons: "Seat pitch"

Cons: "Couldn’t check in on line"

Cons: "Delay meant I missed a meeting deadline."

Pros: "On time flight & very nice service."

Cons: "Rude staff"

Cons: "Taste of new menu"

Pros: "The aircraft room and comfort"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It actually was all good"

Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."

Pros: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."

Pros: "Dreamliners are absolutely awesome. I felt refreshed when I landed. Smooth flight, awesome crew."

Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"

Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"

Pros: "Landing was perfect!"

Pros: "Enjoyed my first trip on LATAM."

Cons: "The space"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, boarding through shutter, unsafe shutter parking,"

Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised to find more legroom, more storage and a great selection of entertainment.."

Pros: "Cumplimiento fe horarios"
Cons: "Cambiaron el aeronave y aeropuerto."

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"

Cons: "Seat space,"

Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"

Cons: "My checked bag never arrived at my destination. The only clothes I have are the clothes I'm wearing."

Cons: "Delays, poor English explanations, disorganized boarding"

Cons: "Boarding process was a mess. Not a smooth process at all."

Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"

Pros: "Todo funcionó de acuerdo a lo planificado."
