Pros: "Good aircraft. A 380"
Cons: "People carried a lot of hand luggage and the overhead bins were crammed"
Cons: "The food was not up to the mark - the menu choice and combinations needs to be re-looked at for non-veg passengers. The choice of spirits was limited and not there at times. The flight attendants overall disposition towards the passengers needs to improve. - at times they forgot what was asked of them."

Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "It was amazing."

Pros: "The staff, food, everything! Best flight and airline ever"
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Pros: "The new plane is nice, reasonably comfortable in economy with clean bathrooms."
Cons: "Frankly can't remember much about this leg of the trip because the next 14 hour leg was so overwhelmingly bad thanks to the highly disruptive fellow passengers and the lack of control from the flight crew."
Pros: "All went fine"
Pros: "Wow totally worth it. I'm now spoiled by how fantastic this airline is. Entertainment, service, food, and comfort. If emirates is flying to my destination I will for sure use them."

Cons: "Emirates Check in Person at Orlando International Airport is Rude and RACIST"
Cons: "Business class was beyond amazing"

Pros: "Seats, entertainment center, and service were incredible. Food was great too."
Cons: "Would have liked ability to watch live TV of some sort."
Pros: "The service and comfort of business class was best I have experienced."

Pros: "Emirates is my favourite airline. I find their service to be above and beyond other airliners I've used"
Pros: "3 Steps of Service. New my name"
Cons: "Some staff over zealous on seat belt enforcement when turbulence was not happening."
Pros: "Great food. Decent comfort but only because the plane was pretty empty. Crew was great but they kept disappearing. People need to sleep, sure, but I felt a little abandoned at times. Good selection for movies and tv."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport was a mess. There were at least 15 people working at the gate, fooling around. Meanwhile we were all sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting to board. It was a bit rude."
"the fly too late. delay"
Pros: "No Crew."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled, never went."
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "The free middle seat because the flight was not full."
Cons: "Bigger glass for wine"
Cons: "Call for stewards was not working and the temperature of the flight was miserable. Kept asking to reduce the cold and nothing. I had a window seat and there was no way to avoid the air/ac on my face the entire flight. MISERABLE!"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Crew cordiality"
Cons: "Luggage....it is allowed to charge but they shouldn’t charge. During on boarding they communicate that because the cabin was full of hand luggage the rest of the passengers needed to dispatch their hand luggage for free. This occurs only because they charge to dispatch luggage when buying the tickets. So nobody dispatch luggage and those who dis became frustrated because they payed. This unfortunately occurs on all companies."

Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Pros: "Good seat space, comfortable, on time arrival"
Cons: "The food was ok, not great. The plane was Very cold!!!"
Cons: "The flight was late"
Cons: "I paid U$100,00 to dispatch a piece of luggage and it did not arrived."
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: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
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: "Seats are fairly comfortable. Almost all planes have seats crammed too close together."
Cons: "More choices of TV shows to watch."
Cons: "With the red eye flight, there were limited food options. Probably what happens normally, but it was a third leg of a journey for us an we were hungry!"
Pros: "Nothing much, really."
Cons: "Baggage handling. They lost one of my baggages and are giving me a hard time to get a refund."
Pros: "Crew, on board entertainment..."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized. A lot of food options but only one dish, missed the salad or other options compared to other companies such as Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and etc.. Drinks were ok, lacked alcohol options compared to other companies."
Cons: "Only one gate agent was boarding passengers, which made the boarding process very slow. I was assigned a seat on the aisle in front of the exit row. For a midnight flight, I was really bummed to find out that my seat would not recline! My leg room on the A321 was lacking in comparison with GOL."
Cons: "TV at each seat"
Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"
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: "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."
Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"

Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"

Pros: "Boarding and Check in was really good"

Cons: "Muito triste minha bagagem nao apareceu na hora do desembarque viajei na classe executiva essa e a ultima vez"
Pros: "Nothing. Passenger name could not be changed due to a mistake by you and lastminuite.com so I lost the flight and was not refunded the full amount! Bad service."
Cons: "If the passenger name was changed as requested and I would not lose the money."
Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"
Pros: "The crew was excellent very very nice . The seats are ok ."
Cons: "Food is very"
Pros: "easy enough..."
Pros: "On board entertainment"
Pros: "I had few questions about emigration in São Paulo and they helped, the food was good and all were very kind!"

Mean was disgusting Seat was dirty, Could not understand ANY of the announcements Will definately try a different carrier when available"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Very tiny space No complementary food No complementary reserve seats in advance No complementary flight advance"
Cons: "Unless you have a super category in this airline, don’t even try to apply to an upgrade. Employees have more preference than you"
Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"
Pros: "The food was really good. The service was good as well. The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "Economy seats are really uncomfortable for long flights, my knees suffered."
Pros: "Nice crew, helpful and friendly"
Cons: "Late boarding, no television or personal entertainment options, food was not so good."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
