Knowing that GOL is an LCC, I was not expecting much. However, after realizing that every seat had the legroom typical of a Extra Comfort seat on NA carriers, I soon became won over. Regular recline functionality (missing on some of the larger LCCs worldwide) and a free drink and snack (also missing on many LCCs), TOO was truly a relaxing flight. 10/10. Would definitely fly again.

I mean, there was no entertainment available (to my knowledge) but there was allegedly Wi-Fi (I didn't try).

Our first flight of the day on Aerolineas, from Salta to Buenos Aires was delayed an hour. We were supposed to have two hours in AEP (Buenos Aires), to connect with our international flight to Rio de Janeiro, but ended up with only 1 hour from landing to takeoff. Because the tickets were booked separately we had to collect our bags and recheck them. But the baggage claim area was packed with people and there were two flights before ours lined up for the belt. We knew it would be at least half an hour just to get the bags... it was too tight. So I went to the Aerolineas desk and a nice woman checked the status and referred me to the Customer Service desk. The man there made some calls and assured me that they would pull our bags and put them on our flight to Rio. He told us to go directly to the gate. We did, and needed every minute to go through customs and arrived just in time for boarding. Amazingly, our bags were there when we arrived in Rio, and we were very happy that we made it with our things!

I liked the service provided by the second steward because he was concerned about my wellbeing and brought me a veggie option. The entertainment was good.

I was given a seat between 2 men and it was most uncomfortable. I am not sure why seating is not done more sensitively for passengers. I requested an aisle seat but never got one. Also, there were no vegetarian options for those who didn't book a special meal in advance. I am a star alliance member with Qatar and love their service. I didn't think Emirates would be below that standard because I have heard a lot about the airline and decided to fly them for a change. I was told that if there was any vegetarian option left behind I would get one but the steward didn't even have the decency to come back to tell me there wasn't any left. For the breakfast the steward was much nicer and was able to provide me with a vegetarian option.
