Pros: "I liked the midnight flight out of LAX; got to sleep at a normal time and arrived in Japan in the morning ready to go"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "My seat was horrible. I'm sure it was like that for everyone in economy. The seat can't recline putting me in an awkward position for the entire flight. It was a red-eye so I didn't sleep much. Maybe it was the airplane since I flew with ANA last year but with the 787. The difference is almost night and day."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "After they told about change my flight to Asiana I finally agreed but I had to walk by myself to Asiana, ANA couldnt at least to make the changes to avoid me long time to stand in line by asiana airlines. I would never recomend ANA"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and the food was good."
Cons: "The place where we at, the aircon/ fan is not working, my husband and I tried but still not working, uncomfortable feeling for a long trip , prior to this we had a long walk to find our gate number because it's in the new building. Our plane delayed so we arrived late at Tokyo causing to missed our plane connection then the crew helped us( very accommodating) for our transfer from Narita international airport to Haneda International airport with Limo bus, 1 & 1/2 hour ride with our luggages and waited for 8 hrs to be on board in a different airline."

Pros: "The crew were very nice, kind and professional."

Pros: "Easy checking process. Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "I loved that the interior was completely darkened for about seven of the 12 hours of flight time."

Cons: "The seats didn't recline at all. I slept horribly even though I'm pretty good at sleeping on planes."

Pros: "Everything.. the crew was so gracious and kind even tho the delay was out their control. they even gave us 30,000 Yen or $260 approximately, which they didn’t have to do. i will start flyin ANA... not because of the money, but because of the delay... which no American carrier would have done and would’ve given excuse after excuse."

Cons: "None"

Cons: "More of an movie selection. Maybe up date movie ever 2-3 weeks as they become available for the company"

Pros: "The plane was new enough and clean, the food was modest but good, snacks were generous and tasty, but what sets ANA apart is the attentiveness, courtesy, and thoughtfulness of the crew. I used to fly Singapore Airlines often and felt this way about them, but in recent years I’ve noticed a fall off in service. ANA has maintained or even raised their standards of service."
Cons: "The food good but not great. But...it’s airplane food."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "It is a very long flight."

Cons: "The check-in at LAX. They form 2 different lines for Economy. The 1st line was lined with the people arriving first. Then the 2nd line started to fill later. But when the ANA agents came out, they have no clue and serve the line of the people arriving later. Should know what they are doing. Either just 1 line, or if 2 lines, should ask which line come first"

Pros: "People the staff was nice and tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Gates kept changing flight was delayed multiple times the flight had no air so I was sweating the whole time my nose began to bleed. I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa they sent me on a hour long shuttle to another airport to fly out the next day."

Cons: "The entertainment and food were very good. It’s a long flight, so more cushions in the seat would be great. I felt like my tailbone was getting bruised."

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, quick to respond to questions, and very helpful. I was able to switch seats even though the flight was full. The food was fine but the menu for the return flight looked better still."
Cons: "The flight was 100% full. I took a redeye flight hoping to sleep a bit on the plane but I ended up not sleeping much. I am happy to take ANA on my return flight, which is not redeye. Also I will be happy to fly ANA again, but I would not take a redeye flight on any airline unless I was in business or first class which I cannot reasonably afford at the moment."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew were great!"

Cons: "The boarding was inconvenient. LAX has just been updated. Gerri g a bus out to the tarmac is something I expect in Africa. Can Air NZ move to a different terminal?"

Cons: "Air New Zealand needs to get onto the TSA Precheck program and the agent at check-in (in the biz line) started scolding me for not meeting the economy baggage allowance (only 1 small 7kg carry on), but everything else was perfect. Best biz class flight I’ve ever had, mostly because of the cabin crew"

Pros: "The entertainment was excellent and so was the food."

Pros: "Crew very friendly, nice airplane, clean"

Cons: "Crew was so busy that they kept overlooking my husband and I when doing the rounds of everything, We felt like we were singled out to be ignored, even though we paid for Premium Economy. Our flight was delayed for more than an hour. Food was barely ok even though we had been on Air NZ Premium economy 4 times now, was sorely disappointed with the food provided."

Pros: "The crew was super courteous and nice."
Cons: "Nice newer aircraft and the crew goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable."

Pros: "I LOVED my flight to LA PERFECT The flight from LA to Auckland was not as good, seating fine, LOVED THE CHECK IN LOVED THE PHONE SERVICE when i called to increase my weight of luggage..."
Cons: "I could not hear the entertainment because engine too loud I did not experience this on my flight to LA , I found the crew were not as pleasant as the crew to LA, could be that they were tired, if i had to rate NZ Airline from my trip to LA.... I would be shouting my pleasrure and did while in LA coming back truly was a different experience however going was so good... I will gladly fly again"

Pros: "I never doubt Air NZ , overall Ok ."

Pros: "Window seat liked it"
Cons: "About baggage didnt liked it... And no food too we didnt came across these to book it while booking tickets .. And passport recognization in sydney troubled a lot us for re checking and identification of our faces to passport ...it was irritating as if we r some wrong we did ..passport photo was without usage or somehow it was like dat not clear picture of us... Maybe due to moist it was like dat...no one was listening to us and made us to wait for long time ."

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Vegetarian options were all very similar. Over a 32 hour flight time I was provided with beans for breakfast/lunch and dinner. I would have preferrred more variety. Also being seated between two others was quiet uncomfortable for a long journey flight."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Friendly team on board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excellent gluten free meal offered! I appreciate the extra effort with providing a gf bun and muffin with most meals!"

Pros: "Everything was excellent , no complaints at all. Staff friendly and efficient,food was pretty good , wine nice good flight ."
Cons: "Not enough good new release movie selection was very average/ poor. Your boarding from LAX could be improved. You have two signs about Premium and economy lines for boarding! These are not obvious . There needs to be a staff member or two checking people as they arrive in a line to check they're in the correct t line . Otherwise people don't trailer until they have been in the wrong line until the reach the top of the line . Leads to frustration even before the flight begins! Otherwise great job everyone ! Thank You !"

Pros: "The crew were uniformly wonderful! They had a bunch of kids from the NZ equivalent of make-a-wish on board so they all dressed up. Anything we needed they provided with a smile."
Cons: "The lay down seats are particularly hard and it is almost impossible to look out the window in business class"

Pros: "Air New Zealand check-in as well as counter personnel were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Booked through Kayak with what I thought was an equivalent Expedia ticket but was horrible surprised when I checked-in. Two other fellow travelers booked flight VA 7516 through Expedia for $218 (USD) one-way. I was able to open the same flight / departure time / price with Expedia but could not book. I then switched to Kayak and located this same flight (as I wanted to travel together with them), and it was for approximately same price. Upon check-in I was told it would cost $120 to check my luggage in (which I reluctantly paid). They indicated my ticket did not include this. I later discussed this with my two travelers and their check-in luggage plus a meal were included with their Expedia (Virgin Australia) ticket. Why was my Kayak (Virgin Australia) ticket so different from Expedia when our bookings were done about the same time? I no longer trust Kayak for future bookings."

Pros: "The service was very nice. The food was good. The entertainment choices were good as well."
Cons: "The seating was to crowded, you could tell that an extra seat was added in the middle section. What was once three seats was now four. Very disapointing. A deal breaker for long flights."

Pros: "Air New Zealand plane was newer and crew was helpful and gracious. Connection to Glasgow was a disaster mostly caused by our airline changing to British Airways to Glasgow. Because our LAX yo LHR flight arrived a bit late, we missed our flight to GLA and had to wait nine hours to get seats on another flight from LHR to GLA. No accomodations were made for us. We had to manage nine hours in LHR with a 4 year-old -- we had no other choice."
Cons: "Will never again fly Air New Zealand from LAX to GLA -- an annual route for us as we have family in Scotland."

Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."

Pros: "Everyone on the plane acted like they were doing you a favor by flying with them more than likely we won't use them again ... kinda of like Frontier airline"

Pros: "Flight had gluten free meals. Crew was professional"
Cons: "45 minutes late so missed connecting flight. While anz booked me on the next flight, international flights shouldn't be that late"

Pros: "The space sllocated is grossly inadequate security is overcrowed Dave not aware of poor image this gives thr city that of a rural enclave"
Cons: "Ovetcrowed no space"

Pros: "The flight crew was great. They keep teverything movies ng and were polite and happy throughout the flight we will definately fly them again!!"

Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Lots of leg room, quick and helpful boarding. Loved my first time on Air New Zealand."
Cons: "I should've asked for a vegetarian meal but I didn't think to. I will next time! I'd also love some more NZ movies...Whale rider, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, etc! That'd be great!"

Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."

Pros: "great flight attendants who really seem like they want to be flying. The economy seats are better than most other airlines. I will always check to see if Air NZ flys to the destination I'm going. They are classy."

Pros: "They put me on a flight to Auckland and then a flight to Wellington"
Cons: "Well I didn't even get on this flight because the plane haven't even left wellington when it was supposed to have been boarding in Sydney had to get two different flights"

Pros: "Smoothe flight"
Cons: "1/2 hour late to depart"

Cons: "Seats were more cramped than usual"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Boarding and replanting was smooth and efficient."
Cons: "Seats were tiny. Arm rests did not rise. Seats barely tilted back. You had to fight with the touch screen entertainment system to get it to do anything. Also it seemed like we sought out the most turbulent altitude possible."

Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The crew was friendly it was a smooth flight the food was good and I enjoyed the snacks also."
Cons: "There was't anything I didn't like I thought it was all good"

Pros: "Punctual"
Cons: "No beverage service"

Cons: "Food availability a minor challenge but crew handled it very nicely."

Pros: "Crew and flight comfort were fine until the flight got canceled after sitting on the plane for over an hour"
Cons: "Wasn’t happy with the accommodation after the flight cancellation, was told no other flights for 3 days so I ended up paying $250 more to get on a different airline that day to make the wedding I was going for."

Cons: "There is nothing to improve. I wish other airlines can learn from them."

Pros: "Wish there were more leg room"

Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Cramped hot flight. Paid white a bit more than other carriers, as I was under the impression that seating would be comfortable, the food great, and beverage service would be frequent"

Pros: "The size of seats , the food and the service"
Cons: "The entertainment system had few glitches but workable ( flickering banners of the channel or sound, volume"

Pros: "All the teem all the services"
Cons: "Non"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "No response when requested for help from flight attendants multiple times from SEA to DXB. Every time I have to walk to them for help."

Cons: "Leg space horrible. Wasn't even able to fold my legs just a bit, was stuck in one position resulting in severe neck pain."

Pros: "The crew and attempt to help with anything I needed"
Cons: "Limited leg room for a big guy like me. My cancelled flight from Boston to phx was too long of a layover"

Pros: "I didn’t die in a plane crash"
Cons: "We were offered no form of refund, miles, or anything after a 6 hour layover. We paid for a hotel for the night (we should have landed at 1am) and instead landed at 7am, so we had to completely skip our hotel and had no sleep for the wedding the next day. We’re out of $120 for the hotel we already paid for and the staff gave us no help in form of compensation."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Emirates was top in service, organization, personnel. Planes were clean, staff attentive and personable and wanting to help. Been a long time since service this good and on such long flights. Cabin personnel of multiple nationalities and languages only added to the flight. They even returned my phone mistakenly left on board. Would recommend them to all."
Cons: "Entertainment system on smaller planes not as responsive as newer models. They need to improve web info to share layover process for hotel vouchers and visa."

Cons: "My entertainment system was not working and the crew wasn’t very helpful about it."

Pros: "Overall top service."
Cons: "A little too directive, exemplified by ordering people to pull down their window shades, for my Americans can mentality. Otherwise great!"

Cons: "I like it"

Cons: "Emirates did not allow us to select the food preference as we had booked through a third party. They literally starved us for 14 hours as we r vegetarian and could not eat meat laden foods."

Pros: "Crew was bored, never smiled, obviously not Enjoying their jobs. Food was no better than any other airline, Which means it wasn’t very good. My small carry-on bag was 2 pounds overweight so they made me check it, they weigh every bag. We were looking forward to our flight because we had been told by several people that emirates Airline was special… It was not."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Crew was surly, never smiled. They all seemed very tired and intolerant of customers. Service was minimal. Food was tasteless and salty. Water was offered only once on a 14 hour flight. Aircraft was very cramped- no room to walk in the aisle without hitting the aisle seats. Overhead compartments were crammed full and it was very difficult to find space for a small bag."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They recently started charging unnecessary excess fees for overweight. I traveled from Seattle to Hyderabad via Dubai. I carried my cabin bag from Seattle with weight of 9kgs and purchased few duty free items of 2kgs(2 liquor bottles and1 dates box). They have asked me to pay $150 for excess weight. One passenger traveled from Houston with a bag of 11kgs. Items include 1 laptop documents and tablet. She didn't shop in Dubai. She was allowed in Houston but was charged $100 in Dubai for same weight."

Pros: "I liked the service but the problem is carry on bags"
Cons: "Carry on bags they're taking my small bags I don't like it they did to cargo"

Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "Tiny seats. No leg room. No storage under the seats."

Cons: "Booked an aisle seat in early April. Emirates reassigned me a middle seat, this on a 13.25 hour flight! Refused to rebook me back to original even though I showed them my original booking. Never Emirates again! Ever."

Pros: "Emirates is still the best option for travel from Seattle to South Asia. Flight time is convenient and boarding process is flawless as always,"
Cons: "In flight meal service and staff attention is not the same as a few years ago. The fees on advance seat selection is ridiculous. After spending close to two grand on a return ticket, Emirates wants me to spend another 40 bucks each way to heya seat of my choice ?"

Pros: "Crew were efficient and moved things through"
Cons: "Food could be improved as was movie selections"

Cons: "Better comfort with Airbus 380 but food remains a concern"

Pros: "Entertainment options, boarding process"
Cons: "Food quality is still good but slightly below previous experiences"

Pros: "Food is good"
Cons: "Need Indian tea"

Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Cons: "The planes still seem dated on the interior, but entertainment system is expansive."

Cons: "We couldn't take a flight for many reasons my wife she's pregnant and not allow to take a flight ,Your company didn't help us for changing our flight this moment so we lost our flight ,our trip,our money Thank you KAYAK"

Pros: "adequate leg space,to stretch and walk around"

Pros: "As comfortable as one could hope for a long haul economy seat."

Cons: "I was expecting a ve"

Pros: "The staff was amazing, not perfect, but still very good. Even on the long leg from Seattle to Dubai after 14 hours they we're smiling, helpful and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I could say was not up to par was the food on both flights. The long legs food got me sick, and yes I was the only one so could have just been me, and the second the "sandwich" it seems they were not even trying."

Pros: "All went fine"

Cons: "When you fly from Dubai boarding is a disaster and staff is rude"

Pros: "I made it to my final destination safely"
Cons: "Not much overhead space for your bags, so we have to keep them at the bottom of our feet....i was travelling with a senior on a wheelchair and the idea of her going up and down the stairs into and out of the airplane wasnt so pleasing...the cabin crew could be easily mistaken for any other passenger becase of dress code..."

Pros: "flight was empty so everyone had the chance to experience better treatment from flight attendants."
Cons: "no complaits"

Cons: "Be sure to take your own water bottle with you on this long 14 hour flight. Both directions it seemed that the company approach to beverages was to serve as little as possible, perhaps to keep people out of the bathrooms. But the cabin air was so dry I could barely swallow at times one way drinking only what was provided, but the other way I noticed that my jet lag was greatly reduced when I carried and consumed an extra liter or two above what was provided. At one gate the security crew asked me to dump my water, but I had a small empty bottle with me that I could fill up at the spigot near the bathroom on the plane as needed."

Cons: "Was required to check my small roll aboard because I had a backpack, while other passengers were allowed to carry on multiple large items."

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options on this flight. I appreciated that the flight crew asked all passengers to close the window drapes so we could all sleep. The chairs in economy seem to lay back further than other airlines which made it more comfortable."
Cons: "i would like to be upgraded I first class (for free)! :)"

Pros: "I loved the hospitality and the attention to detail throughout the flight."

Pros: "I was ready for a tortuous 14+ hour flight since I had a center seat in the very last row... But, I was pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed tracking the trip on the entertainment center and viewing outside on the cameras."
Cons: "Navigating the entertainment system was a bit complicated and the touch screen didn't respond well to my touch."

Pros: "Good overall experience."

Pros: "Great menus, get you all excited. Variety, interesting dishes. Generous with wine and drinks."
Cons: "It's... airline food. Doesn't live up to the promise of the menu. Cooked too long ago, reheated too much, ... I understand that they have constraints, that's what you get when you want to eat in the sky. But I have eaten better food in airplanes, in economy."

Pros: "Hospitality and vegetarian food Maintaining the timings"

Cons: "Food wasn't that great. They ran out of choices"

Cons: "Complimentary varieties can be increased"

Cons: "I pay for the airspace above my seat - I didn't get it! Flight attendant obese and not me twice. QF need to lock their cattle class seat backs - insufficient seat pitch to allow leaning."

Pros: "Crew did their best, but that wasn't great."
Cons: "We pre ordered vegetarian meals for my vegetarian daughter, and the flight attendant went out of her way to mention that there was nothing ordered. Original direct flight from LAX to Sydney was delayed by almost 12 hours for "maintenance", so we were rerouted via SFO and Brisbane. 15 hours took 24"

Cons: "Lost 2 of 3 bags. Still don’t have them. Some staff very helpful and empathetic. Some staff very rude and abrasive. Didn’t want to take ownership and work to correct the problem. Had a “not my problem” attitude"

Cons: "Ran out of fruit for breakfast"

Cons: "The flight was held up in Sydney airspace by traffic control causing a short but significant delay which was not recognised by Qantas even though they knew we were connecting to International."

Cons: "food wasn't good"

Pros: "Flight attendants where quality in their delivery of service Food was good (Chicken salad)"
Cons: "Staff that maned the gate clearly a novice or untrained. His coworker seemingly not bothered if the job was done correctly or not. Resulting in multiple bags being lost. And not just mine, at least 4 people had baggage lost due to lack of care and attention Absolutely dier."

Pros: "Arrived alive."
Cons: "Sketchy plane. Too many speed changes. Left late."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour. Gate change to a gate too small to accommodate people. Food was pretty ordinary. Seats very cramped."

Cons: "Use of 737 and lacklustre entertainment system compared to A330"

Pros: "Watched movies to pass the time. Trip uneventful but 2 hours late"
Cons: "The announcements by cabin crew on board were hard to understand as English not first language"

Pros: "Crew was great, friendly and accommodating. Food was good for airline food"
Cons: "Seat rows are so close together that you have to pay extra for a decent amount of leg room."

Pros: "Great, attentive staff. Good selection for entertainment."
Cons: "Food was great but service to middle row is awkward for a family of 4 when half get their food and the other half waits."

Pros: "Staff were friendly. Enjoyed getting a meal included in the ticket for everyone."
Cons: "Could be more of a range of movies to watch"

Pros: "Quality & service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Jean and Dave were excellent stewards"

Cons: "my wife and i were subjected to very harsh treatment at check in...we were harassed over being 100 grams overweight on a check in bag...100 grams... both flying on a paid business class ticket."

Pros: "The airline cares about every passenger from the departure terminal thru the flight and even at the destination terminal for a layover. You feel they care about you as a passenger, even tho we sat in economy,"
Cons: "Could not think of a single thing."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Overall experience was good.Food quality and snack was good."
Cons: "Would like to have more choice in Bollywood movies., and food."

Pros: "Liked service and entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of legroom"

Pros: "Qantas rarely disappoint! I have been flying with them for almost 35 years and I don't recall a bad flight"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"

Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."

Pros: "Qantas is my favorite airline. I will always fly with them given the choice."

Pros: "Checking in and bag drop process was the simplest and hassle free!"
Cons: "The flight cleanliness and food options could be improved. Some staff were super friendly while others not so much."

Cons: "They did not have vegetarian food in spite of my request."

Pros: "Impeccable service, food, and overall experience from the crew. It has always been a joy to fly Qantas, and I'm glad to see that is something that doesn't change."
Cons: "If you are going to travel with a little one, have the common decency to help your poor wife take care of them as well. You had three seats, the entire middle aisle, yet you decided to take the open seat next to me so they could lay down together. That was nice, I get it, sure. But if your baby is going to cry for hours (and hours, it was a 10.5 hour flight, that poor kid must have been exhausted), pause the movie for a minute, and maybe try to help. I don't mind being inconvenienced for the little ones, I'm a dad of 4 myself, I've traveled a lot and know how it goes. But jesus christ, she's your wife, that's your child, try taking care of them."

Pros: "They gave us loaner strollers to get the kids through the airport. So family friendly. Food was great too."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "2.5 hour flight - nothing too difficult they transferred our bags ok - nothing lost paid $C175 for my third bag - because we booked under QF code share. Wont do that again."
Cons: "ok flight"

Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "I couldn't request a vegan meal online for some reason & once i got to the airport it was too late so i went hungry"

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: "Bags got lost. Not enough time for connection at LAX ."

Cons: "Didn't bother to offer acting other than fruit juice, water and tea or coffee with the meal seemed in a hurry to get the meal service over"

Pros: "They went above and beyond"
Cons: "All was great"

Cons: "The reason for an OK overall is that I left a personal item on the flight. I contacted the airline an hour after my flight landed and they showed no urgency to recover my item that had a lot of value to me. If they could have pages the cleaning crew on the ground, I'm sure I would have recovered my notebook. Instead they told me to check 4 hours later. When i did check 4 hours later, they told me to check in 2-3 days. When i checked in 2-3 days they asked if I filed a report. Which I wanted to on the same day but was told not needed. Very disappointing ground services."

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 were cheery, helpful and professional."
Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"

Pros: "I liked that they accommodated my dietary restrictions"
Cons: "I didn't like the seating. It was really cramped"

Pros: "Very well organized. Crew is very friendly. Lots of little perks on the flight that many other companies don't provide."

Pros: "It was a Qantas flight not an Emirates flight for your correct information."
Cons: "I was hoping to be on board an Emirates plane notQantas msybe another time"

Pros: "Even though the delay caused me to miss my connecting flight to Perth Qantas booked me onto the next available one so my overall delay was reduced to one hour. Thanks for not screwing me over."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3.5 hours so we were stuck at LAX for a long long time, way passed the closing time of all the shops and restaurants at the international terminal :(. Otherwise a great flight w decent food and great service"

Cons: "food was probably the worst airline food that I have ever tried to eat. Wasn't even able or wanted to eat it."

Pros: "The design of the storage on the back of the seat in front is very clever and makes a huge difference - e.g. foot rest The entertainment system is very good Food was excellent for plane food"

Pros: "Fast self checkin"
Cons: "Entertainment screen doesn't work. Plane is freezing cold. Crew was very rude and ignores my requests. Never come when ask for service and completely ignores my first request of an extra blanket if possible. Never comeback to let me know if they have one or not and I was freezing to sick. I have to walk to the back of the plane to find someone to bring me a blanket. Yet he tries to cast me off by lying that he could not find one. When he realize that I really need one he said I can take one from empty seat if I can find any. But after me finding a blanket of another color on one of the empty seat he take it away rudely saying that it is "not for you". Come on I wouldn't take it if no one cares about me freezing and he finally bring me a blanket. And the crew was very unfriendly to me the entire time. When I tried to lay down a little, somehow it surprised the passenger who is behind me, the crew make such a scene that ask me outloud "be careful when moving your seat" well I did. Basically they make no efford to care about anything about me but are super nice to the people who's is behind me who are white and elder. Such obviously discrimination that I cannot tolerant. I have been having frequent international travel for the past 7 years and this is the first time I have such unpleasant experience. I do not recommend this company to anyone. be warned."

Cons: "Two suitcases were lost"

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: "Helpful crew"

Cons: "No complaints, good airline, good service, good staff"

Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."

Pros: "Good entertainment on board and the crew was fairly attentive, but not as attentive as on other airlines."
Cons: "Food was not great, but at least it was edible. Thought the crew could have also asked about refills more often."

Pros: "Had to pay extra for my luggage I was only allowed one when it was always two."
Cons: "Having more student deals."

Cons: "English speaking staff."

Pros: "Crew is friendly, plane is new and clean"
Cons: "they charge to choose seats before hand, shouldn't be a privilege to do so"

Pros: "the crew was realy great and everything was very good."

Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a little better and bathrooms bigger"

Pros: "Normal"
Cons: "Better food"

Cons: "This app is fraud"

Cons: "All is perfect"

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

Pros: "all except the food"
Cons: "the food"

Pros: "Amazing crew, very comfortable seat, delicious food."

Pros: "The crew really was amazing and very kind"
Cons: "The boarding was too slow and it delayed the departure"

Pros: "The people that work there were so kind! Very pleasant, I love the service! Everyone has a smile and make sure the customers were comfortable and save!"
Cons: "I like everything. No complain!"

Cons: "Disaster started at noon of the day of flight. Got notification flight delayed by 2 hours. That means I miss my coonection. Options for changes meant getting to destination 24 hours a later or with extra stop. I managed to buy a much better direct flight same day from different airline. And cheaper. I was so lucky. Getting refund for this disaster itinerary. But it worked out in the end."

Cons: "Delayed 5h, missed all connections, no help from crew"

Cons: "Lost my bags"

Pros: "Flight and especialy landing was top noch"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. There was no entertainment nor food, so I cannot rate it"

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Paid for an extra leg-room seat months before the flight. When I checked in days before, I find they have sold that seat to someone else. The schedule of the flight had changed and for that reason (?!?!) my reserved and paid for seat was not carried over!!"

Pros: "The fact that I made it to my destination and Home safetly."
Cons: "The service is terrible . They lose bags , the planes are dirty, you can still see head grease on the windows and old dried up food on the seat backs. We were delayed 40 minutes. No annoucement or notification . The staff are rude , and don’t care . Very unreliable airline - the food is disgusting."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact that Kayak never wrote down my email. So when they cancels my flights I never got notice until I was about to leave for the airport."

Pros: "I enjoyed Everything except the layover"
Cons: "My 3 Hour layover was extended to Nine hours. The Peruvian airport offered me a hotel room i turned down. Peruvian gentleman on the plane just prior to landing was telling me how dangerous it is in Peru in the area surrounding the airport. I was given four hours of wifi coupons and coupons to a breakfast and lunch at a restaurant by our gate, where i was waited on poorly. Next time i may look for a layover in Florida."

Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Average airline with poor customer service. The transit was too short and lost my luggage. Customer service was very poor and recovering my bags was an epic and expensive endeviour!!"

Cons: "We had 4 hours of delay, 3 of them waiting on the plane"

Pros: "Staff and service was great"

Pros: "It was not physically uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, moved, and when it finally took off it was re routed back to São Paulo with almost zero communication. We were herded around with attendants who had no idea why our flight was canceled mid air and we had to fend for ourselves for rebooking."

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."

Cons: "Too small seating space"

Pros: "I'm so glad that food was served with reusable metal utensils and that the blankets provided are reused, too."
Cons: "LATAM could do a lot for the environment by recycling bottles and cans from beverages served during the flight."

Pros: "The upgraded me to first class!!!!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Service was good... brought me a second meal after first dinner wasn't filling enough. Excellent entertainment system with tons of new hit movies I wanted to watch"
Cons: "Not super comfortable but that's typical for these flights. Waiting a while at baggage claim."

Pros: "The crew was nice, the food tasted great, and they had a variety of movies to watch!"
Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."

Cons: "Flightwas canceled and customer service was horrible through the entire experience."

Pros: "Every employee is super helpful and the airline is family friendly. Airplanes are always new and clean. The meals are always good as far as airplane food goes. They have a generous baggage policy and unlike other airlines the airport departure tax is included in the fare. They serve the customers unlike the domestic airlines."
Cons: "Overhead bins on the inside rows are a bit on the small side."

Pros: "Worst latam lost 4 loggages of my parents John f Kennedy New York to Trujillo - Peru 09-09-16 Flight B6212905- B6212906 Inga Inga Sanchez, Rita Rojas Malqui, victor Contact phone 7035658509"

Pros: "The plane was super clean comfortable and with good entertainment, food was good and the crew was great."

Cons: "Confort, sits to small"

Pros: "Collection of movies, and flight being ontime"
Cons: "Seats, food, flight attendants didn't enforce seats in upright positions while serving food."

Pros: "Brand new Dreamliner! Plenty of legroom in economy"

Pros: "New Airplane and a lot leg room"
Cons: "N/a"

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."

Pros: "I booked my flight in November for a March flight. I booked 2 seats together --window and aisle. I checked my reservation the day before we went to the airport, we foound out that these seats had been given to someone else. How could they give away reserved seats??"
