Pros: "Business class is nice and comfortable with LATAM"
Cons: "More choices for the mains would be great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Look for alternatives. This airline used to be good, but they grew too much and now is really bad. Overall experience was very bad. Evaluate low cost competition. Today they are much better than LATAM"

Pros: "check in and boarding (mostly because it was empty). Flight attendants. timely flight"

Cons: "Food quality could be better"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."

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

Pros: "The plane left on time. My LATAM flight to Sydney on Wednesday 12 September was cancelled and I missed a meeting that day in Sydney as a result."

Cons: "Charger $190 for a second check in bag of 7kg. Extremely rude staff. Terrible food. Never fly with them again!"

Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"

Pros: "Overall I love the professionalism and customer service of LATAM. The interior lighting of the aircraft makes a big difference. The staff is always super polite and friendly. It's my favorite airline."
Cons: "On a 10 hour flight (LAX to Santiago Chile) they should offer more snacks and drinks for people to help themselves to in economy class. Other airlines have water and juice available I felt like I was bothering a crew member every time asked for a glass of water, when I could have just helped myself. Also, maybe have a few light snacks available. After a very light lunch, 8 and a half hours is a very long wait till breakfast!"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was top notch. Crew was wonderful and the plane itself was excellent."

Pros: "I flew business on the new airplane the Dreamliner. The experience was overall good. Very comfy plane. Slept like a baby. The food was the only bad thing I skipped both meals as it tasted like airplane food or frozen food out of a box."

Pros: "We left a pocketbook at our Apt that we did not realize until we arrived at the airport. We called LATAM Airlines to cancel our flight. Can we receive any refund? Thanks, Tom and Leigh King"

Cons: "5 HOUR DELAY ON A ONE HOUR FLIGHT. LA 990 MPN/PUQ 10 DEC"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed my first leg and then they canceled my return leg without telling me. I then had to pay for a new flight"

Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."

Cons: "Old airplane"

Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"

Pros: "Atencion del equipo"
Cons: "Ruidos inusual del avion al elevarse y descrnder. Check in horrible"

Cons: "The boarding process how backwards they do it And make you check carry on items Anf don't offer online check in"

Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."

Pros: "The food and entertainment"
Cons: "The seats were the smallest seats I've ever say in and I felt claustrophobic. Checking into this flight was a disaster and impossible. Tam would redirect me to Tam airlines and Lan would redirect me to Lan. The Lan customer service was unable to get into the Tam airlines flight so we emded up with the most awful chairs in the airline. I wish they would fix their website so checkin isn't as frustrating as it was for me. I understand the airlines merged but if each airline is unable to access eachothers flight then how exactly did you merge? ALSO when we got off the first flighy to connect in this one they gave us no explanation until 20min later to where we should commect to this flight. They MADE US WALK A 20min WALK TO ANOTHER TERMINAL WITH ALL OUR BAGS. It was awful. If your gonna need people to walk to another terminal the least you can do is supply a shuttle."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."

Pros: "Roomy seats, good meal, friendly staff."

Pros: "Nothing. They would not let me on the flight although I was at the gate an hour in advance with no checked luggage"
Cons: "I had called previously to verify that Qantas and Lan were partners and although I had purchased separate tickets (Qantas from LAX to SYD and LAN from SYD to CHC), that i would have no checked luggage and the informed to go straight to the gate. When I arrived in SYD i did and was there well in advance. They wouldn't let me on the flight and I have no idea why."

Cons: "Our flight was delayed more than three hours and we received minimal communication about what was going on. Initially it was only delayed 30 minutes, then we were told an hour, then one more hour, then one more hour. The entire time we sat in a pre-boarding area with no food, water, wifi, or electrical outlets. We ended up missing one of our tours in Buenos Aires (which we had already paid for) due to the delay. Extremely disappointing after having otherwise positive experiences with LAN."

Pros: "Excellent service. Short flight, arriving in time."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Terrible boarding experience. Plane was delayed 2 hours with no explaination. Plane was a bit dirty and old. Will not fly again if I can help it."

Pros: "One of the best flight I have ever experienced on LAN. Very friendly service from all of the crew members."

Pros: "The crew was amazing the flight went well."
Cons: "I payed extra to be in premium economy and ingot put next to free upgrade and the flight was empty behind me so I had no room and I payed more just an unfair and ridiculous waste of money if I have people all around me and none behind me I shouldn’t have to pay for something if there giving it to the people so I get less riom"

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

Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."

Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."

Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Perfect!"

Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"

Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."

Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."

Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."

Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"

Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."

Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."

Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."

Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"

Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."

Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."

Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."

Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."

Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."

Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."

Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."

Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."

Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."

Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."

Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."

Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"

Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."

Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."

Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."

Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."

Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"

Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"

Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."

Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"

Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"

Pros: "Liked the crew, the pillows/blankets and entertainment."
Cons: "Didn't like that they didn't have toothbushes in the bathroom like Quantas has. Food was eh. Wish there were more snacks avail throughout besides chips. Got really hungry."

Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"

Pros: "WiFi entertainment"
Cons: "Power outlets"

Pros: "Great crew. Excellent service."
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable. Could be more softer."

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"

Pros: "Updated us on cause of delay."
Cons: "Food was bare minimum for an international flight. Crew barely smiled and attitude was dry. Seats horrible for long flight."

Cons: "Air conditioning, I wanted an option for heat."

Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."

Pros: "Snacks and drinks. Good legroom"
Cons: "I chose our seats online upon booking about 5 months ago and when we got to check in we were told we weren’t even sitting together for a 3.5 hour flight. Not sure why we got leftover seats when we chose already And booked months ago"

Cons: "Seats to close together. Out of main food choices. Temperature too warm."

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Pros: "I'm so glad I got to sit next to my wife."
Cons: "I had to check in my carry-on when I got to the gate. I had my snacks and entertainment packed in my bag so I had to unpack my stuff for the flight. Once on the plane there was plenty of room for my bag to go in the overhead compartment. Not only did I deal with the discomfort of having to carry my stuff in my hand on to my next flight but I had to deal with a flight attendant that had no self awareness of his surrounding. The flight attendant ran into my shoulder more times than I can count. Such an irritating flight."

Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Stink in the plane"

Pros: "Flight attendant where very nice and courteous"
Cons: "Entertainment took a while to upload or kept freezing on screen"

Pros: "the crew on the virgin atlantic flight i got from heathrow to lagos becuse the lufthansa flight was delayed."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and because of that I missed my connecting flight. The airline staff didn't help much in making my journey hassle free. I had to wait over 2 hours at the frankfurt airport and another 8 hours at heathrow airport"

Pros: "On time, easy boarding. Good storage room for carry-on luggage. Clean, great new aircraft."
Cons: "Not enough beverages served during long flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy crew was pleasant. Shouldn't have to pay extra for tv, ticket prices are high enough as it is!!"
Cons: "No leg room which isn't good for circulation on a 4 hr flight!"

Cons: "I am at a loss for words. I was scheduled to depart from Tampa,Fl July 25th at 5pm. I was able to catch an earlier flight when another airline so I did. I still needed to fly back from my destination from Newark, Nj on Monday July 31. Due to me not taking my original flight United cancelled my ENTIRE reservation and they want me to pay $250 to rebook, which I do not have. I am currently stuck in New York with no money for a return flight, and will possibly lose my job. I am extremely shocked that they would do that. I will NEVER recommend or fly with them again."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"

Pros: "All good without delays. Great pilot."

Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."

Pros: "Comfortable.."
Cons: "The price. It was a little expensive"

Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."

Cons: "Ko"

Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."

Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."

Pros: "No positives"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3+ hours... In this order... • United system went down • when it came up instead of us next they let a later flight go next • then they moved our gates • then they changed planes so all luggage needed to be moved • then their flight crew timed out, so couldn't leave • I didn't want to end up at my desination at 4am in the morning or later so it would completely screw up my sleep/work schedule, so I left, ate the cost and the time and rebooked on another airline"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly!"

Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"

Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."
Cons: "Not quite.little bit noisy."

Cons: "The food was terrible"

Cons: "Delayed at arrival gate - Luggage did not make transfer to next flight"

Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."

Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "The departure gate was changed 3 times to terminals very far away. It was a bit tiring to dash to the different terminals in order to not miss the flight"

Pros: "It landed in Des Moines 30 minutes early."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Space is tight and a drink and 1 oz. of pretzels can hardly be called food."

Cons: "Paid for first class, didn't get offered dinner"

Cons: "My flight from IAH to LCH was delayed 5 TIMES while I was in the air from SEA. I ended up having to fly into Lafayette because otherwise I would have been stuck at the airport for 4 hours when my original layover was 1.5 hours."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."

Pros: "Needed to get to a hurting friend asap who's husband was dying. When I checked my luggage the delta employee gave me a heartfelt hug & words of encouragement Which meant more to me then anything. That's not in any training manual that's the heart of a great employee...."

Pros: "Seats fit for midgets"

Cons: "No TV"
