Flight was good and the snack (toasted ham and cheese) was OK. The entertainment selection was great. Would have liked a canned softdrink as a choice.

The crew was friendly. The food was good. I was charged 265 USD for two bags from Lima to Seattle. This seemed very extreme. But I had no choice because I had to get my luggage to Seattle.

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"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Pros: "The inflight crew was nice."
Cons: "I hate checking in with LATAM! I swear they make up new bag rules for every person that walks up. There were people with 2 carry ones, purses, and shopping bags. But I couldn't bring 2 backpacks(school backpacks!) on. I had to check one. I HATE LATAM! Every time it is something different with them."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, and movie system did not work"
Cons: "the process of boarding no annoucement of gate change"
Cons: "No choice in food and very little provided. Half a sandwich with stale bread for breakfast"
Pros: "the flight attendant were very kind"
Cons: "They should get more modern airplanes with personal TV."
Pros: "Nice friendly crew"
Cons: "Very cramped seating. My knees were jammed against seat in front of me. I am 6' 2""
Pros: "Staff were excellent, food was ok"
Cons: "Seats on this aircraft are terribly uncomfortable. Our three hour flight was awful. Narrow thin seat enable more passengers to be crammed in. Great for Latam’s profit but terrible for thief customers. I’d never fly on an A321 again if I could avoid i."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent Business class seating quite roomy"
Cons: "Food was ok but not to the standards of Qantas / Emirates or Etihad The cabin seating etc, looked a little tired & dated & the seats mechanical operation was clunky. Toiletries bag provided was quite limited, but was fit for purpose."
Cons: "Delay meant I missed a meeting deadline."
Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"
Pros: "We are an American Family. We traveled on LATAM Sydney to Auckland round trip. The plane was brand new Boeing Dreamliner 787-8 with all the bells and whistles. The attendants who are Spanish speakers but bilingual were delightful. We had one meal on each flight and 2 rounds of drinks. We had no issues with carry on or checked luggage. To summarize we had 2 perfect on-time flights with no fuss or drama. I couldn't recommend them more even if I tried.."
Pros: "On time flight & very nice service."
Pros: "."
Cons: "Boarding started 30’ late. Boarding itself was awful, two Lin’s of people where it was supposed to be one."
Pros: "Comfortable and sufficient entertainment."
Cons: "The food wasn’t spectacular."
Cons: "We were traveling with 2 children. Seats assigned: rows 15, 18, 32, and 38. Nobody in the crew (from the desk to the plane) was able to solve the problem. We solved it swapping seats with other passengers. We were 4 with 3 carry-on bags. The person who was in charge was very rude. They don't allow us to carry any of them in the cabin and 1 arrived broken. I had no problems like this before, With full flights like this is normal to have to send some luggage that you expect in the cabin to the hold, but in this case the crew was very unclear and rude. The food: it was a short flight and they give us our snack just seconds before the landing. Finally, they lost 1 of our bags. Waiting to see if it appears."
Pros: "Jet blue was late so I miss my connecting fly to Uruguay"
Cons: "They send me with avianca and that was a nightmare disaster 4 days later still waiting for my luggage"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "Dreamliners are absolutely awesome. I felt refreshed when I landed. Smooth flight, awesome crew."
Pros: "Everything was good. Cabin crew were very kind in serving."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like"
Pros: "The flight itself was great. No problems with with the actual process of boarding or landing. The flight was even ahead of schedule. The problem was with the transfer."
Cons: "Normally, international-domestic transfers are pretty difficult to coordinate. This particular one (Bogota>Miami, Miami>San Francisco) seemed particularly so. On top of being just enough time to wait for our bags, drop them off with the next airline, walk across the airport, enter security (which went exceedingly slowly), we had just enough time to get to the gate before boarding. This is why I gave a lower rating."
Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."
Pros: "The crew service is excellent: prompt, efficient, and friendly. The free streaming inflight entertainment to use on your smartphone, tablet or laptop is a very nice feature on a 3-hour plus flight. The food for sale onboard is tasty and fresh. In my experience most domestic flights operated by Latam are on time."
Cons: "Latam crams its single-aisle Airbus fleet with one or two rows of seats too many: the seat space is crammed. The exception are the first three rows and exit rows, for extra pay or free for elite passengers. The first three rows have power outlets -nice and useful to watch streaming movies without draining your smartphone battery."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and plenty of space. Very nice flight attendants. Decent food that we didn't have to pay extra for and free movies, tv or games."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, flight on time."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great."
Pros: "The standard domestic flight, not a lot of room but not as cramped as it could have been. Speedy from the time we boarded to disembarking."
Pros: "Enjoyed my first trip on LATAM."
Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised to find more legroom, more storage and a great selection of entertainment.."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Main leg of flight which was to take me to Lima from the United States in the first place, was cancelled. Refund should have occurred, yet still charged. Please issue refund."
Pros: "Ok food."
Cons: "I cant even fit my actual problem in his box but point it ill never travel with them ever again. Noone was able to help me when i needed to change my tickets noone knew what they were talking about and everyone you talk to gives you false/different information."
Cons: "When I check in, they don't find my booking information. And let me to find out the solution. It's so terrible airline."
Pros: "Excellent service and courteous staff very clean aircraft great choice of movies/TV and music. Tasty snack provided. Good value.."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service onboard is really excelent. No complaints at all."
Cons: "The online and telephone system is the worst. They never are able to confirm your seats or preferent seats . You can not use an american credit card if you are in south america. They give you a confirmation number to pay your flight ticket in "Plaza Vea" (Peru) and when you get there they told me that at only in a few "plaza veas" you can pay your ticket. I had to spend like 100 soles (30 dollars) to pay my upgrade seat. There is more Horrible experience to tell about it . Avoid LATAM"
Pros: "Flight on time,perfect schedule and mail info"
Cons: "Latam gives wrong information about connexions. The plane seats extremely uncomfortable. Attendant gave a tissue paper to client to clean her pulling table because it was dirty. They didn't apologized and asked traveler to clean the table instead. Miss connection with the flight from Miami to New York and no help from LATAM personnel at all. This is an airline that at one point it was the best and now is the worst. It is important to clarify with passenger about passing inmigration and aduana and the distance from international to national departures!!"
Cons: "The flight did not land, it returned to Lima"
Pros: "I liked the spaciousness and services of the 787 I liked the curteous and generous service of the crew I liked the boarding and deplaning I will consider using LATAM in my long-distance overseas travel"
Pros: "loved it"
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats wear decently comfortable, bathroom was clean"
Cons: "Boarding took longer than usual and was late to take off"
Pros: "the price"
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "New plane. good entertainment system"
Cons: "Staff not responding to requests no water available in common areas food listed in the menu not available for all passengers."
Cons: "I flew LAN many years ago and remembered this flight to be a lot better than it was this time around. The seats barely recline and in Economy leg room is comparable to AA flights going to South America (which is pretty bad). Forget about sleeping. I had some hopes for the food but it disappointed too. Breakfast, for example, was essentially a warm sandwich with a paper thin layer of ham and cheese. They stuff you with bread. Had a much better experience flying sister company TAM."

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Nothing gets you ready for a flight like 2 hour delay because of a broken seat then not completing the paperwork properly

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."
Cons: "Understanding the COVID situation but they can give more than a bottle of water (3oz) and a bag of pretzels 🥨 (50 grams) and yet they charge full fare prices and worse extra for any bags!!!!"
Pros: "This was a prompt, well organized flight. In-flight entertainment on AA is always decent."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."
Pros: "New aircraft was more comfortable"
Cons: "I think they did excellent"
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Cons: "I was not notified that I needed a visa as of October 1st, therefore missed my flights. You suck"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."

Pros: "Entertainment options were great! A huge selection of movies for all."
Cons: "The food was not great and they ran out of options when they got to the back of the plane."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."

Cons: "Going through LAX what a mess"
Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Crew was nice and gave my son Captain Wings"
Cons: "Left 50 minutes late, only provided sugar cookies as food"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "We left right on time. Plane was clean and had option to charge phone"
Cons: "You had to pay to check a bag and you had to pay for food. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."
Pros: "short"
Cons: "second security check at gate where they wouldn't allow me to bring water even though I was sick and bought it after 1st security also threw away my lotion that had gotten through first security"
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Cons: "Had a middle seat and didn't have the option to pick another seat without paying over 250 USD"
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable on American Airlines compared to Qantas"
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Cons: "Thought I would be flying on Quantas, not AA"
Pros: "Food was good, crew was efficient. Flight was fine"
Pros: "The crew were fast and friendly but maybe too fast. It felt a bit rushed."
Cons: "It felt a bit rushed."
Pros: "we paid $300 for more leg room on the 787...it was great....really comfortable seats."
Cons: "the volume on back seat screen....impossible to get right with the touch screen. GO BACK TO KNOBS PLEASE AS SOME AUTO COMPANIES ARE DOING."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "The check in computer crashed before it started. Only manual check in available and the staff wasn't trained to handle it. It delayed the flight over 2 hours and then the process screw up someone visas and they had to be removed with their luggage. But you know this already! You need to implement a better secondary system and have your employees be trained to use it."
Pros: "Having an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Seats a bit snug."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Food was awful"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Cons: "I am an AA member and usually fly them domestic. The seats are horribly uncomfortable for an international flight. The flight attendants woke you up for meals. There is no space between you and the seat in front of you and they didn't tell anyone to put their seat up while you were eating. It was really difficult to get comfortable. I find it easy to fall asleep on planes and I couldn't fall asleep on this one."
Cons: "Felt as though some American Airlines crew members were abrupt. I've never experienced that with Qantas or Jetstar."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."
Pros: "- The boarding process went very fast and smooth for such a packed plane."
Cons: "- food was HORRIBLE. I asked for the chicken dinner and it was COLD and disgusting. There should always be a pasta option on a flight. Also, they ran out of red wine before dinner. - the staff skipped over me TWICE when handing out beverages. I had to remind them that I existed twice and they didn't apologize for skipping over me."
Pros: "a fast paced cabin crew! superb!"
Cons: "economy seats had my knees jammed into the seat back ahead. Couldn't sleep a wink."
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."

3 hour delay

Pros: "Comodidad en el avión"
Cons: "Hay desorden en la coordinación de los vuelos, atrasos, yo tuve un atraso de 11 horas, otros perdieron conexión, y no es tampoco porque se paga barato, porque los pasajes están caros"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "For United to go out of business"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."
Cons: "they changed our flight without notifying us! they messed up our seats and asked my mother to deplane! when we were flying with twin babies! they also gave us grief about gate checking something on the trip home that we had no problems with on the way there. honestly i will never fly united again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen and the food was tasty"
Cons: "My seat...not being able to pick an aisle seat. Also the passenger behind me kept doing something with her seat pocket and I could feel that everytime. Need more padding there. And halfway through the flight the screen quit working."
Pros: "The Air NZ FLight from Aickland to San Francisco was operated by United Airlines. The seat had excellent leg room. The attendants were very pleasant and available throughout."
Cons: "When I first border the plane there was another passes egg in my allocated seat. The selection of movies available was only okay. their is only a minimal number of toilets for the number of passengers and one of them was out of paper when I went or use it. But they were always clean."
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
