Airline reviews

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Entertainment screen is too small, and touch panel reaction is so late."

Cons: "Airlines waste a lot of time and money preparing food that is mediocre at best. Just offering simple orange juice , tea coffee and a muffin to keep people going would be better as it's such a short flight."

Pros: "The crew and the flight was good. The comfort of the seats were not, especially for a 14.5 hr flight"
Cons: "Just a little more space between the seats! You have to lean to the side, on the passenger seating next to you to try to pick something up or gather your belongings."

Pros: "Great flight. Efficient and great service."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable.. glad it was only a few hours."

Pros: "Crew were great - happy & fun. Seats 19B & C"

Pros: "Crew was very good"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for a 6’2” tall person."

Pros: "Very smooth, on time boarding. Food quality"
Cons: "The food is served on a tiny tray that only has room for the hot dish. Other items are piled on top. Recipe for items being dropped, getting crumbs everywhere and generally less comfortable eating experirnce. And stop using plastic cutlery!"

Pros: "Professional service.."
Cons: "Non.."

Pros: "Crew was nice and ready to help"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable and the service is first rate. Best airline out of Virgin Australia, Air New Zealand, and Qantas based on my 3 trips to New Zealand"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses perfume was quite overwhelming."

Pros: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"
Cons: "Nothing, I pay for premium economy and can’t use the partnerships lounge—what’s the point!"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."

Pros: "I’ll lile it all"
Cons: "My foot rest didn’t extend all the way up, button was broken"

Pros: "check in easy at Adelaide airport"
Cons: "The plane had small drop down screens every 4 or 5 rows which are totally inadequate for watching anything. gives no choice and poor sound quality (lag between vision and sound) Pork meal was some sort of tasteless slop in a cardboard box with rice and a green veg. It seem as if short flights are getting a raw deal with old planes and sub standard food, systems to save costs. If they cannot maintain a consistent level of standard across all their products let another provider in who can."

Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."

Cons: "My family of 4 were not seated together even though all four tickets were purchased together in the same booking. After booking through KAYAK for flights, the on-line check-in process was a nightmare with the KAYAK booking number not matching the information required by QANTAS. As my children were all spread over the plane, and two son's look very similar, a hostess almost did not serve one of my son's a meal as she believed my son had already received a meal further forward in the plane. Thankfully, upon checking, the hostess realised that it was a case of mistaken identity."

Pros: "The service, helpful attendants the new Meze snack box"

Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; the section at the back of the plan with drinks and small snacks was also good music selection was also excellent"
Cons: "the meals were not great and spaced out a lot. no green tea, no eyemasks and socks provided"

Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"

Pros: "More legroom, bathrooms appeared to get serviced so they were not a mess, plenty of food and drinks available throughout the flight. Being able to order the meal ahead was a wonderful way to guarantee your choice. Well done!"

Pros: "Very friendly and attentive crew. Varied entertainment options, including a selection of Australian films. Good food!"
Cons: "Cramped seats. There is no need for air travel to be so miserable in terms of legroom."

Pros: "The food is excellent. The flying attendant is friendly"
Cons: "The plane was very late"

Cons: "Purchased seats at front of plane and parent with toddler travelled get alone. Assured seats not at back of plane. But once on plane was the very last seats and no recline."

Pros: "The food was good. They had this pizza on focaccia bread that was amazing!"
Cons: "Same type of staff as my inbound flight. Some of the same folks too. Pushy, rushed, grabby, unfriendly. There were a few good stewards, but most could give 2 sh*ts about you."

Pros: "The crew was pleasantly pleasent when passengers make mistakes but firm as need, thus getting what needed done as pleasantly as possible."
Cons: "Entertainment system was stuck and stay stuck on kids program and system had no way to get back to main entry point. Software programmers had either failed to put in a "home" icon / link on the Kids home page. Also, turning system off, and leaving it off for 3+ minutes did not do so either; this likely a failure of software designers to specific such or system itself not functioning per design."

Pros: "The new clear aircraft"
Cons: "The fruit was not ripe and not edible."

Cons: "My headphone jack did not work so i could not watch anything on the TV for the entire flight"

Pros: "Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Fast and reliable. Grand cup of tea too. Would recommend and would fly again. Different Safety demo got my attention."

Pros: "Worst food on flight m service"

Pros: "Our boarding & flight crew were excellent. They went above & beyond to help us through the delay that ocutred due to engine cover repairs."
Cons: "I was told LAX would have corrected flight/boarding info upon arrival. They did not. They made us wait & go through 2 lines that made us miss any connection home. The rep was inexperienced & slow. I had to spend the night in LA & had to pay someone $500 to work at my store in my stead. Ended up negative experience. ."

Cons: "Did not have any meal for the 2h45m flight"

Pros: "Plane crew all ok"
Cons: "The staff at the check in desk was really really rude and mean. I went there because I was desparate due to my flight delay. I kept asking things because I was confused but she treated me so awful. SHE EVEN SAID “NO MORE QUESTION” and threw me away. Really Disrespectful."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful and we were provided with breakfast even on this shorter flight."
Cons: "They didn't have as big of a selection of movies on their smaller plane."

Pros: "Staff were super accommodating and friendly. Best pillow I've had on a flight. Blankets were nice as well."
Cons: "Seats didn't accommodate my broad shoulders well. Seats seemed tighter than ones I've flow long distance on before ie. Iceland Air, New Zealand Air, and Emirates. Head phone jack is inside the seat arm rest which made it awkward when adjusting. No standard head phone jack but a converter is provided."

Pros: "I flew over NYE and liked the complimentary sparking wine provided so we didn't miss out on the celebrations. Also food, staff and service was really good!"
Cons: "My preference is to not sit towards the back, but I couldn't check in online and there wasn't anything else available at the counter"

Pros: "Friendly service."

Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."

Pros: "Great service, great food"

Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Taste & selection for vegetarian meals were very poor"

Cons: "The food was terrible. By the time the meal cart came to ou row, all the got meals was out and we have no choice and was served with the cold ham salad that looks like left overs, both my son and I lost our appetite looking at it. The crew didn't apologize and gave the impression that we either take it or too bad. Won't be recommending this airline."

Pros: "Friendly, helpful and professional crew which which always makes for a better overall experience."
Cons: "The crew seemed to have to spend much of their time as IT consultants assisting with iPads."

Pros: "Double seats in Economy"
Cons: "Complete lack of separation between seats - minimal room. When the passenger in front reclined. It knocked my very small Qantas bottle over. Non existant leg room. A most Uncomfortable flight back to Melbourne Qantas take a look at Jet Blue. ..this should be your benchmark in Economy Travel...."

Pros: "The seats are great in 380 compared to 777 - I'm 187cm and I can stretch out Food seems to be improving - breakfast wasn't soggy!"
Cons: "Crew service is slack as usual, and hasn't improved much - you have to ask for everything - breakfast they forgot the coffee - had to ask, second drink before evening meal - forget it they are just too busy - all 23 of them! On Cathay or Singapore or even United - they help as much as they can."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Crew were really good"
Cons: "Using an old plane for a cross country flight was ridiculous"

Pros: "Food, entertainment, comfy seats, quiet sleeping time"
Cons: "Some of the head phone connection did not work"

Pros: "We have travelled a few times by Qantas because we come from Australia. Their planes are safe. Our plane got delayed ( and this is not the first time we have had this with Qantas), and then we missed our connecting flight. The ground staff were not helpful at all. Our connecting flight was with LAn airlines and LAN were very cooperative and gave us another later flight though they were not obligated to do so. Qantas are generally too much by the book and things always go wrong. I still use them but it is a risk that I need to consider more next time. LAN/Latam helped us out because they are more customer oriented. Anyway, good luck"
Cons: "Qantas are too stingy and not customer focussed. We missed our flight due to their plane late by 6 hours and they did not offer assistance even though we missed our connecting flight. The other carrier helped us out, phew!"

Pros: "Seats comfortable and seats good and staff friendly"
Cons: "Nil entertainment if you didn't have an iPad or downloaded the entertainment app which you would expect more in business class."

Pros: "Crew was helpful, worked to make the passengers feel comfortable."
Cons: "The connection didn’t allow for enough time so I missed my connecting flight. LATAM doesn’t recognize PreCheck, even though US airports do offer that but without the printout boarding pass passengers can’t take advantage of the shorter lines. LATAM also charged for both flights to check baggage instead of charging once for the whole trip."

Pros: "Mediocre flight and service"
Cons: "Check-in was terrible, boarding also very disorganized. Crew on board was ok; very few flight attendants spoke English."

Pros: "New plane, nice crew, good entertainment, good food."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 1/2 hours and it was handled horribly. First, I had to wait at check-in for 1 hour despite having checked in online. Next, we were told hourly-wise to check-in at the gate to find out when our flight would leave. This was a hassle and caused me a lot of stress since I had to make new plans with a new itinerary for my arrival in Chile where I was supposed to meet my elderly parents. The staff kept telling me they didn't know when we'd leave asking me to check back four times before they were able to give me a definite time. Aweful experience that caused me a lot of stress and inconvenience."

Pros: "Crew had christmas ware on."
Cons: "Food did not taste good. Better wine."

Cons: "Crazy early. Boarding pass says gate closes by 1205 (for scheduled 1220 departure). We TOOK OFF (in air) before 1200. We got yelled at because we arrived only 1 hour early — should be 3 hours early for an “international flight”. Luggage very difficult, Must rush, etc. But everything turned out great. Scl is crazy airport — 20 minute wait for gate ramp when we got there (still 20 minutes early, instead of 40! On a 60-minute scheduled flight!). Huge long walk to immigration. Pretty long wait for bags. But it all worked out fine."

Pros: "Crew members were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Boarding, comfort of seats"

Pros: "Everything was ok"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Yes, they did"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."

Pros: "We will actually travel tonight due to cancellations and route changes. Our seats were upgraded and we were put up in a nice hotel to rest before flight."
Cons: "Better communication about route change and code sharing to fix it."

Pros: "The fly time"
Cons: "The check in process, too slow ,we waist almost 2hrs in the process"

Cons: "La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina."

Cons: "Luggage ruined grease all.over it Service said they could do nothing"

Cons: "Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade."

Pros: "The flight was on time & smooth"
Cons: "Lots of kids yelling & some crying. Not something the airline can do anything about."

Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."

Pros: "The food was really good. You can tell they have made an effort improving this subject. The plane is a beauty, silent, smooth, but when you flight in tight seat, with a minimal reclination, it all goes to the trash. Good entertainment service, modern, but the missed a few movies they should have."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat. It doesn't recline much, very small space between them."

Cons: "We flew Latam to go snowboarding in Argentina. The moment we arrived at the desk to check in, it was chaos. We waited in line for almost 2 hours to check in. When we got to Buenos Aires, our snowboard bags had not made it on the flight. Having to deal with Latam agents who hardly spoke English and were not helpful at all was intensity frustrating. Our bags finally got to our destination 2 days later. We had to drive to the airport to pick them up because they were not going to deliver them for another day, so we would have been 3 days without our snowboard gear. Latam did nothing to compensate us for the days lost no did they even seem to care. This is one of the most frustrating companies I have ever dealt with. I booked a return flight on Delta and lost $1000 just so I don’t have to deal with Latam again. Any money you save on a flight is not worth having to deal with this company. Stick with reliable American-based companies with customer service that is up to American standards."

Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"

Pros: "Good crew, excellent service, friendly staff, comfortable seats and on-time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment was lacking, so there was only an in-flight magazine to read with limited English language material"

Pros: "Lam take care very well my mother . She is handicap and the wheelchair was able to used at the counter. My mother will be happy to come back ,awhile she does not to walk to much by herself."
Cons: "nothing the trip was great."

Pros: "Aircraft was superb."
Cons: "Communication arr as y was too busy. Too much going on around me."

Cons: "2 hours late, the flight following us left first."

Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"
Cons: "Too many people have carry on baggage that is too big, no space left in the overhead bins for those boarding last. Seats are too narrow, even for a person that is not particularly big."

Pros: "LA844 was cancelled the day before but luckily our day went off without a hitch. LA842 was delayed several hours to create LA1144, which was effectively the cancelled flight from the day before. Airport wasn't as chaotic as I might have expected. No issues at all with this flight."
Cons: "I'm still weary of LATAM after they left us in Lima for 15 hours after 2 cancelled flights. No issues this flight though (at least for us... poor sobs on the cancelled flight the day before were delayed about 15 hours themselves)."

Cons: "Flight cancelled twice, 15 hour delay, disorganized announcements and management. Truly awful"

Pros: "Comfortable and sufficient entertainment."
Cons: "The food wasn’t spectacular."

Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."

Pros: "Gate crew was very nice and efficient"
Cons: "Had to wait 3 hours inside the plane in JFK with no electricity (no AC or lights) before taking off. The crew said it was the airport employees that had caused the problem."

Pros: "crew! just awesome"
Cons: "some people being to loud at sleep times."

Cons: "How do you contact kayak to cancel a flight? I will never book with you again. You make it impossible to reach someone."

Pros: "Left on time the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled after I had gone through security and was waiting to board. I received an e-mail from Kayak, but no notification from LATAM. No one was at the gate; waited a long time to speak with a representative. They booked me on the next morning flight from JFK, but sent me to a hotel in Long Island - 1 1/2 by bus that was jammed and overheated. Hotel was old, not kept up and food and service bad. Bus driver could not tell me for sure what time we were going to be picked up in the morning - maybe 6:30 AM? I was told. No one at the gate gave me this information either. I was ready at 6:15 AM and the bus was full. I waited for second bus. No breakfast at the hotel. Flight to Santiago was uneventful and crew during the flight were polite."

Pros: "The crew was fabulous! Competent and very helpful, even funny when serving food and drinks! I fly very frequently but this was one of the nicest crews I had in years!"

Cons: "Segunda vez en una semana que me mojan , me derramaron cafe el vuelo anterior y hoy jugo de naranja. El espacio es muy pequeño y chocan los brazos cuando ofrecen bebida ; o el de adelante se mueve y bota todo encima ... un desastre, cero comodidad , la silla más dura que nunca y el espacio para las piernas, o sea, yo mido 1.74 y voy justa, que será para el resto de la población.. no por incluir una fila más hagan que todos vayamos incómodos ; y de la tripulación, nada que decir, solo me pasaron servilletas y me desearon suerte .. me gustaría algún tipo de compensación, porque , para más remate, llegamos más tarde de lo estimado."

Pros: "Great short flight and they got us to Santiago early since everyone was at the gate"
Cons: "They changed my seat without notice nor great explanation."

Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."

Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"

Pros: "good flight. Good lounge in Santiago. Flight staff very good"
Cons: "Lounge food not as good as BA or Qantas. Only hot food was some sausage roll / vegetable rolls. Only sandwiches and filled rolls"

Cons: "No Movie Screen"

Cons: "I have to pay for the food with no actual discount or lower price ticket. and the sits are even more tight than before."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn't even offer water, this on a 3 1/2 hour flight, took too long to board, too long to get off...they sold food on the flight, they seemed to cater to whomever wanted to buy food, & like I said offer water to the rest of us. Just an overall horrible flight."

Cons: "My original flight was supposed to land at 8:55pm but I was notified that it had been changed to land closer to midnight which was a problem because my hotel closed at midnight. After talking to the customer service agent at the airport he told me the reason my flight had changed was because my original airplane was flying out of another airport and the only way to make the flight that I had booked was to take a cab ride to the other airport. What he didn't explain was that its a 45+ minute drive between the two airports and I only had about 1.5 hours to get my bag, get on the taxi, check in at the other airport, clear security AND customs. Somehow by the grace of god it all came together but it was certainly a harrowing experience, not to mention the $45 I lost in cab fares. I cannot recommend LAN/LATAM."

Cons: "Staff not helpful, announcement's only in spanish despite many English speaking tourists."

Cons: "The ground personne in Iguazul were terrific. Flight got cancelled after check in. We were in waiting area. Staff remembered who we were, found us, had us hurry bavk to check-in. Got our luggage, got it retagged, and got us on another flight leaving almost immediately. We got to BA with no problems as did our luggage. Yay for your smart, resourceful, thoughtful and efficient ground crew in Iguazu. They deserve a special thanks."

Cons: "Vuelo sobrevendido. Poco serios. Avión súper incómodo... su pitch es vergomzoso"

Cons: "Could not select my seat"

Pros: "The LATAN costumee service was very kind and professional."
Cons: "I went to Argentina to spend 4 days with my family, wich I didn't see for 2 years. I arrived to Mendoza. I wait until the last suitcase shows. Any of my suitcases arrived. I spent another hour making the complain. I had to come back to the airport in the evening and spent another hour for my baggages. Unfortunate i waist my first day in the airport and only spent 3 days with my family. Also the day that I had to return to USA the LATAN fly was late 1 and a half hour."

Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."

Pros: "You should train your one world partners. After such a good trip with LAN you end up with American Airlines where crew treates you as you were a criminal!"
Cons: "You should train your one world partners. After such a good trip with LAN you end up with American Airlines where crew treates you as you were a criminal."
