Pros: "Always organised"
Pros: "There was clear communication at the Gate Lounge as to why the plane was delayed, what was being done about it, and what to expect. The crew also tried quite hard to be helpful whilst on board the flight."
Cons: "The cabin seemed tired overall, not very comfortable and lacking in newer amenities such as USB outlet, charger, wifi. The food was terrible - barely edible I would say. I was not offered an alcoholic drink throughout the flight and when I requested a wine, it never arrived. The trolleys seemed to be piled high with rubbish."
Cons: "Not told that pretty much the only in flight entertainment required downloading the qantas app"
Pros: "boarding was quick and efficient"
Cons: "seats were incredibly tight"
Pros: "Boarding food choices actually got drinks and food with Ticket price. Didn't have to buy extra food or drink They actually serviced toilets on flight. Got headsets and you could choose your own entertainment at your seat"
Cons: "There is no room between seat if person in front of you Puts their seat back. You have zero leg room and you can't Get out of your seat to go to bathroom. If all seats are taken in coach you are quite screwed"
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Cons: "the plane was small, old, not comfortable and not remotely up to the standards that we expect from Qantas or the A380s we typically get from CA to SYD. If I book Qantas - I expect a certain level of service - otherwise, I would save the money and just go with the cheapest airline."
Pros: "As I stated previously, I am blind and found the special assistance Qantas offers invaluable. Every crew member I interacted with was polite, thoughtful, warm, attentive, and extremely helpful."

Pros: "The crew, the food"
Pros: "seat was comfortable"
Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"
Cons: "I could have been warned that you need to get a pass to go to Hanga Roa before you can board. I had checked because I had heard there was a fee but upon investigation, it was said that this requirement had been eliminated. Wrong!! You still need the pass but you don’t get charged a fee. The extra time required for this tedious meant we missed our chance to check bags and do incurred hundreds of dollars more to get on the same flight the next day. No Bueno!!! This should be highlighted up front!!"
Cons: "The food ."
Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"
Pros: "The crew wonderful"
Cons: "I got a middle seat. Any other seat would’ve been better."
Cons: "Try to avoid LATAM. Actually low cost competition is offering a better service. Latam grew too much and the service is bad. They are making too many mistakes such as not delivering basic information such as where to pick up luggage claim. Honest advice: look for alternatives and avoid big headaches"
Pros: "all except the food"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Flight staff, food, seating, Personnal space, restrooms were clean, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Checking in at the counter and boarding the aircraft can use some polishing. The boarding process is confusing due to lack of communication to customers and faulty speaker/PA systems at LATAM gates."
Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."
Cons: "Boarding was adjacent to C04 with the Aerolineas flight leaving 5 minutes before us. This congested the boarding but was well handled."
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."
Pros: "Organized well"
Cons: "Seat crowded too much"
Cons: "The check in line had a three hour wait....it was a mad house. Then they told me the flight was boarding at 5:30 for a 6:33 departure, so I got stressed out to get to the gate. We did not board until 6:45 and left at 7:30????"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Crew quite nice"
Cons: "The baggage check In closed an hour an a half before boarding, which led us to bring the bags through security, which resulted in loss of $60 worth of items!!!! Unacceptable!"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
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."
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "The plane itself was awesome!"
Cons: "The customer service I received on the plane however was probably the worst service I've ever had and I fly a lot. From a stewardess giving me grief for requesting coke and crackers to the overall customer experience was very much lacking!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "Not much. The quality of the service of lan after the merger with tam has decreased substantially"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and we missed the last flight. In the new flight they lost one bag. After 41 hours of traveling latam surely ruined our holiday memories"
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Cons: "Entertainment kept crashing so we had to keep going back to find where we were with our movies"
Cons: "Original flight cancelled without any notice / auto check-in not available / delay / aleatory seat selection / poor food service"
Pros: "Being on a plane!"
Cons: "Having our initial flight delayed by 8 hours for a vague technical problem and given no info."
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Pros: "The food, entertainment, boarding and comfortable seating. The check in was great, they changed my flight and I flew direct. It wa really good."
Cons: "The crew was really rude to me"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."
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: "The entertainment system is exceptional. The food, in my opinion, has always been good. I've flown Lan Airlines since before the merger for at least a decade. The crew was efficient, in particular given the size of the flight."
Cons: "Oddly, the seats were slightly less comfortable on this larger jet than on the LATAM flight from Santiago to Lima which was a smaller jet with one aisle and 3 seats per row."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Pros: "We had 3 high-school classes that traveled with us and the crew managed them extremely well (especially Luis) and made that trip unforgettable and most entertaining."
Cons: "Breakfast food was really bad; dinner food was between mediocre and ok."
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
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: "Plane on time performance"
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: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Staff on LATAM is among the best in my life."
Cons: "Long boarding times. It's ok though, nota deal breaker by any means. Food is delicious for airplane food."
Pros: "I have bought a ticket from To Aeroparque Jorge Newvery; and they cancelled the flight and sent me to Ezeiza without prior inform, concent and without any compensation."
Pros: "Crew was very nice, and I really appreciate the legroom on LATAM flights!"
Cons: "The entertainment app would not download, and we were unable to access movies or shows via our iPads and phones so we could not watch anything."
Pros: "The attention was good. The air attendants were quite nice. For booking my meals I had a problem with the Call center and they left me waiting for 15 minutes until I had to hang. But then I contacted the Facebook page and I received an immediate response so everything was Ok."
Cons: "The plane on the first flight was quite old and the entertainment console was obsolete. The plane for the return flight was a new one, vey nice but the seats were hard and very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Cons: "Latam could not link with American Airlines. It was like I had two separate tickets even though they had a code share with AA. I couldn't get a boarding pass across airlines and my seat assignments were a real problem."
Pros: "Despite having a high "Sapphire" status with this One World Partner and being promised "preferente" seats by the airline when I reserved seats months ago, I was unable to view the seats or check in online. Both their App and their online system were down and unavailable. We were never able to view our actual seats online. The "preferred seats" my group on 5 could not have been worse!! We were seated consistently in row 11 or the very last row of the aircraft immediately in front of the lavatory, where the seats do not recline at all and where you hear and smell the bathroom for the entire flight.. There was NO space to breathe in our seats. I have traveled on dozens of airlines and this experience and these seats were the WORST! After this happened once, I specifically asked to insure that it would not happen again and was told that seats on my next flights were good but they were the same horrible seats. Part of our itinerary was on LAN and part was on TAM, who have now combined into 1 airline, but still operate on separate systems. So LAN customer service could not see the seats for TAM flights and vice versa. Their online system reflected a changed time for our return flight from 145pm to 250pm from Rio. We verified it 3 times (even though we could not check in or view our seats because of "technical difficulties" we could see the new departure tie, and the change was confirmed by our Sheraton concierge, but when we arrived to the airport they informed us that we had arrived to late for our 145pm flight! We showed them the app that showed our flight was changed to 250pm and they could not explain the problem. We were delayed 4 hours and arrived too late for dinner in Santiago. The final 4 hour flight at 4am flight from Santiago to Lima was torture. The seat in front was literally 6 inches in front of my face when they reclined and I could not recline. It was absolute TORTURE! Avoid this airline! To add the agony, they have lost my bag and do not know where it is!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE seats with NO space and no Recline as a "preferred" clients. Impossible and inaccurate online App and check in process that was always unavailable. Unfriendly and poor customer service at check in, and inaccurate information (being told that we had good preferred seats, for example) Lost luggage still pending."
Cons: "When buying a flight price and the airline on which I fly are the two most important factors.... LAN transferred my flight to AVIANCA and the food was terrible and the flight attendants weren't very friendly in general. The experience was not very enjoyable"
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"
Pros: "Good service from the crew."
Cons: "I lost my luggage (bag). I had to wait about 1 hour. Airport staff advised me to go from gate 1 to gate 11 and back to gate 1. Then advised me to go to Latam counter where I lodged a claim."
