Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"

Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."

Pros: "The airline and crew were all excellent and a real pleasure to travel with them."
Cons: "Upon looking at the flights out of Peru we found that there were a lot more choices for returning to Tampa. We were looking at 37 hours of lay over between Lima and Miami. Upon finding the flights with less lay over time we changed our flights and were hammered with $400 change fees. Seemed a bit deceptive that all the flights were not listed when we originally booked. Will use a travel agent next time to make sure we do not run into this situation again."

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and confusing, no where to sit at gate."

Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Pros: "Service was prompt, smooth boarding and the aircraft was modern. there was an entertainment option if you had downloaded their app before the flight - I hadn't downloaded it, so can't comment on the entertainment. Other than that - all in all great service."
Cons: "Snacks were crackers and 2 sweet biscuits. Would have been nice to have had something a little more savoury, but this is realistically already more than I would expect from European carriers, so can't complain."
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Pros: "Check in and baggage drops were quite simple and effortless."
Cons: "The current process has people lining up well ahead of any scheduled boarding or departure time. I'd suggest waiting until just before boarding time to put signs out for boarding zones."
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Cons: "The boarding process how backwards they do it And make you check carry on items Anf don't offer online check in"
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."

Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good meal, friendly staff."
Pros: "There is nothing that I liked"
Cons: "Having flown with LAN multiple times the only time you receive good service is when you fly in Business Class. Recently I have been flying economy and from the moment checking in to leaving the plane is a terrible experience. I have had on numerous occasions when checking in at the airport that I was lied to regarding the seat I was in. Or there was more than one person with the same seat. Food and the wine is awful. I would not even eat it if I was starving. When flying the overnight/ morning flight they leave the cabin lights on pretty much the entire way, their excuse is that they need to serve dinner, but who serves dinner at 0500 in the morning anyways. My last flight I asked if I could borrow a pen, and they told me they do not give out pens to customers. I will never fly LAN again except for business class. On American Airlines they are a lot more friendlier. Also a shame that they do not have a way of recognising the people that fly with them frequently, I have flown with LAN 10 times in the last 12 months. They have a bad attitude."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Great crew and seats were very comfortable"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me was extra nervous which was a little un nerving"
Cons: "If the boarding time had remained unchanged and there was more legroom"
Cons: "Had to sprint it to get to our connecting flight. The crew was not helpful at all and had the gall to charge an outrageous bag fee."
Cons: "We were shocked to be charged $275 for two checked bags. At the point that you are checking in you are trapped and don't have a choice but to pay it. We were told that if we had paid in advance it would be cheaper, but we didn't know what the weight of our bags would be so I just figured I'd pay at the airport. They didn't say that they charge so much more at the airport - which is a total rip off. We were also harassed by not having the email that showed we purchased an Australian Visa which is digitally tied to our passport. If they need to verify our Visa, then they should have the electronic means to verify it. Also, we were traveling from Sydney to Auckland so since we were leaving the country I'm not sure why they had to see our Australian Visa in the first place. We were already in the country!"
Pros: "Good price, nice flight."
Cons: "Waited a very long time to get off the plane & be shuttled to the terminal - 20-30 minutes. Flight attendants shouldn't have to go all the way up front or to the back to bring me a cup of tap water. They could have a pitcher or bottle handy for those not purchasing drinks or food."
Pros: "The fact that we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1hour, then by another 20 min, then we sat and waited without any information as to what was going on for another 40 min before we finally boarded. Not good enough Jetstar!"
Cons: "Ridiculous to pay for water. It was a 3 and a half hour trip. Who doesn't provide water for such a long trip. And of course it wasn't cheap $5 a bottle."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Had to pay significant fees for checked bag even though it was an international flight"
Pros: "I like the crew. I think they make a very good job."
Cons: "I didn't like that you have a limit at 7 kg at cabine bag. I came from Europe with a 10 kg cabine bag with WizzAir., then I continued with Saudia. I observed that Jetstar has that limit and I was obligged to take a checked luggage"
Cons: "No service to customers who did not buy food or drink."
Cons: "Auckland free Wifi 45 min, wha ???"
Cons: "This is a budget Airlines. I had to call to assign seat and pay for seat. The phone representative was horrible. Also, at the airport they told us to check in baby stroller which we did and they gave us a tag for stroller. The stroller never arrived in Auckland. We had to buy a new stroller. The food we paid for in advance was not cheap at all but they gave us egg sandwich."
Cons: "RIDICULOUS baggage fees. Because I booked through Kayak I never received a confirmation from the airline. When we went to check In at the airport I was informed I would have to pay $160 PER BAG and $35 PER KILO over 15kg. The agent informed me that I needed to pay baggage fees based on weight at the time I booked. How in the hell am I supposed to know 2 months in advance how much my luggage weighs? The baggage fees were 4 times the price of the ticket! And then they weigh your carry on to try to collect even more fees if the total weight of your carry on exceeds 7kg. No food or water on board and VERY rude head flight attendant. NEVER AGAIN and I will think twice about booking through Kayak given I was never informed of these fees in advance."
Pros: "I loved our crew! Super friendly and willing to assist you in anything that was needed."
Cons: "The extra baggage fees, my bad, I thought I had paid for it. Luckily I stored most of it in Sydney, since I was only going to be in Auckland for a day. We left 45 minutes late without explanation...that was lame. I don't think I will fly with them again unless I just bring a backpack."
Pros: "I was rebooked to JQ7001 which is VERY disappointing as it leaves Sydney 6 hours later than JQ199, my original flight. Reason given by Jetstar: JQ199 has been closed. An outright lie as JQ199 departed Sydney as per schedule today. I"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The only time we saw the cabin crew was when they were selling something."
Cons: "That I had to pay another $60 for the cost of checking a bag."
Pros: "we were not offered in advance to buy luggage and where then told it would cost us $25 per kg, when we had 5 people and over 100 kg on us, at $2500, that would have been double what we paid for the flight for a paltry 20 kg per person, which is highway robbery. we declined the flight and booked again on qantas. stay away from this crooked airline."
Cons: "Horrific! My sister, mother and I paid 1000 Australian dollars for baggage. An outrageous amount because I apparently didn't specify that we would be checking our 3.bags. The crew was very nice but the plane was dirty and they gave you absolutely nothing. Awful."
Pros: "One must take extreme care to anticipate and include adequate baggage weight at booking or suffer significant (painful) cost penalties."
Cons: "It cost $120 per person for extra checked luggage. This was an unknown cost. Disappointed with this factor."
Pros: "I am still in denpasar"
Cons: "Oberstar nickels and dimes you. $4.00 coffee, you have to be kidding"
Pros: "Aircraft and crew"
Cons: "Over one hour at check in."
Pros: "Very smooth boarding and pleasant on board crew."
Cons: "I made a small gift purchase in Queenstown and they were going to charge me $70 to put it under the plane. They could have easily put it in a small box, put it under the plane, and charge me $25 at the most for it. Instead I had to give it to the clerk at the counter because I only paid $20 for the item. I didn't mind having to put it under the plane but for $70?"
Pros: "Flight was reasonably priced."
Cons: "Flight was not on time and boarding was not efficient."
Pros: "Jetstar, only because we had a wheelchair request was our experience okay"
Cons: "we felt like just a number otherwise"
Pros: "Efficient. Friendly. On time."
Cons: "Lack of leg room like all airlines"
Pros: "The flight was on time. There was much more leg room than TigerAir."
Cons: "After flying TigertAir, Jetstar was much easier with baggage options. There was still uncertainty about the carry-on weight. I ended up purchasing too much additional baggage weight."
Cons: "2h delay"
Pros: "Lot of seats were available . Flight timing was very suitable .Avoided the rush hour. Reached on time ."
Cons: "No free checked baggage especially for international travel ."
Cons: "Got charged 15$ per kilo for our bags even tho we couldn't check in online"
Pros: "Everyone was very polite, to compensate for ripping us off on the cost of our luggage... By the kilo!"
Cons: "No info when we purchased the ticket on Kayak that this airline does not charge by the bag, but by the kilo. No chance to buy kilos when we bought the ticket. Got ripped off at the airport. This airline is is for backpackers, NOT for the international traveler"
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Pros: "All was good from boarding to exiting"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full so we could spread out."
Cons: "The baggage charges were unbelievable. More than the flight."
Pros: "Plane ride smooth and the service for every part of trip was great. This exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "departing late (again)"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight with no warning, we had to scramble to find an alternative connection to our international flight. The voucher they gave to compensate was more of an insult than anything. They also have ridiculously low maximum weight limits for carry on and then charged absurd rates for checked luggage."
Pros: "plenty of room nice staff"
Pros: "Everything and everyone were quite efficient and on time."
Cons: "Food was non existent (that's the way this airlien operates. Water was not even offered but they supplied water when asked but not bottled water."
Cons: "I will never fly Jetstar again!! ONLY AFTER I BOOKED AND PAID, the system allowed me to book my baggage. Imagine my disgust when I was charged over $100 per bag!! If I had known the outrageous baggage charge, I would not have used this airline, and I never will again."
Cons: "Charge you for bags Rude staff"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The tight quarters, and the fact that I had to pay for a cup of tea. I also thought that the 160$ fee for a bag was completely ridiculous. I was traveling from another country and would not have known to pre buy baggage."
Cons: "No leg room at all..."
