Cons: Viendo que no podrían acomodar tres adultos y dos bebés en una fila de tres asientos por falta de mascarillas de oxígeno, en lugar de reacomodar gente, nos hicieron descender del avión, no les importó mi bebé ni mi esposa que está embarazada, el peor episodio viajando, el supervisor fue descortés, poco profesional y de verdad tiró por los suelos la buena impresión que tenía de GOL

LIM
Excellent 10.0

Pros: My three LATAM flights were all on-time, well-piloted and efficiently run. They are not responsible for airport-related issues in Lima. Taking off at over 11.00 feet and landing at sea level must be like having most of the air leak out of your tires while driving, but these guys take that in stride.

Cons: Gate assignments in Lima tend to change and be posted late, but this is not under LATAM control.

Good 7.6

Pros: Crew was very helpful and polite. Seats are ok

Cons: Didn’t know that Mac users need to download app before the flight. My suitcase handle was ripped, filed a report. See what happens. I guess someone will contact me.

OK 4.3

Pros: The inflight crew was nice.

Cons: I hate checking in with LATAM! I swear they make up new bag rules for every person that walks up. There were people with 2 carry ones, purses, and shopping bags. But I couldn't bring 2 backpacks(school backpacks!) on. I had to check one. I HATE LATAM! Every time it is something different with them.

Excellent 8.5

Cons: Flight delayed 3+ hours due to Boeing issue. There needed to be some sort of assistance. We were offered access to the GOL lounge without asking, which was welcome, only to be refused when trying to enter. The attendant was not helpful, in fact rather negative and condescending. Not supportive.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
