Cons: "The food was really bad. I prebooked an AISLE seat and of course I was given the WINDOW!"

Pros: "Punctual modern aircraft."
Cons: "The onky bad thing was luggage collection. Belt 6 tucked away. The luggage was so quick coming off that there was no-one to collect it . The belt was soon full and no.more luggage could enter the belt until the luggage on the belt was claimed"

Pros: "Great staff and air flight attendants"

Pros: "The stewardesses were absolutely amazing, asking/ offering beverages in between main meals t/ out the whole flight! They were just doing their job above and beyond! Wonderful crew especially the girls in the section 30’s on the side FGJK, THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU WERE AMAZING!"

Pros: "Professional, friendly service in every respect."
Cons: "Economy is profoundly uncomfortable -- as with all its competitors."

Pros: "I was gratified to see that the 777 Boeing aircraft have now replaced the older Airbus aircraft..... This is my sixth time traveling to Switzerland from San Francisco on Swiss....Their service in my opinion remains excellent......The cabin crew was cheerful friendly yet remained very efficient at the same time... The food was very good, , The two meals that comes with one's Ticket still also comes with complimentary beverage service .... and even a warm moist towel is offered towards the end of the flight ... not bad for a seat in coach ...."
Cons: "I had no complaints except that there was a 40+ minute delay in receiving our checked baggage..... this could have been a problem With the airport ground crew at Zurich airport ....."

Pros: "There wasn't much that stood out as likable. The food was pretty good."
Cons: "The plane was too hot. I asked multiple times throughout the flight for the temperature to be reduced, and it was not. I was wearing light jeans and a short sleeve shirt, and I was sweating all flight. Each time I asked throughout the duration of the flight, I was told it take a while for the temperature to decline. It's one thing to be uncomfortably warm on a flight; it's another thing when the flight crew lies to you. Further, I was not the only one to request that the temperature be reduced. This made an 11 hour flight particularly miserable."

Cons: "We were scheduled for a 55 minute layover in Zurich which was not nearly enough time. Our plane was 10 minutes late in landing but our next flight was delayed 5 minutes. We had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, go through immigration with very long lines, take a tram to our departure terminal and then run to our gate which was at the end of a very long hallway. Luckily they held the plane but it was very stressful and exhausting getting to our plane."

Pros: "Safety"
Cons: "Small seats only 2 bathrooms,"

Cons: "I felt like a sardine."

Pros: "Stewards were friendly; snacks were good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Excelente"
Cons: "Excelente"

Pros: "The flight attendants qere very nice and friendly. Spoke great English. They came by often with drinks and snacks. All the food was actually good! The seats were fairly comfy and there was actually room! Even when the person in front of me leaned back, my legs still didn't touch the back of the seat (I'm 5-10 with long legs). Very happy with swiss!"

Pros: "good service, patient with passengers"
Cons: "For 9 hr flight the space between the seats in economy class was way too small. Im 1.75cm (medium) and I felt squeesed and very unconfitable not like in Lufthansa airplane flying from Newark to Dussldorf. (Flight only 6:15min) In addition, when front passenger moved his seat back on me I had a lot of difficulties with getting in and out of my seaat."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Ordered kosher and did not get it"

Pros: "Boarding was excellent, seats were comfy, food was delicious and crew was wonderful. Nice movie/tv selection."

Pros: "Good entertainment variety. Food was good, including snacks. Generous with drinks as well. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Letting us know about the delay prior to boarding could have allowed us to use our time better. Instead we sat at the gate and in the plane. Seats (economy) a bit closer to each other relative to other planes and the armrest does not fully go up which does not allow us to use space as much as possible."

Cons: "When I booked the flight I thought it was El Al so I did not order kosher food (as all El Al food is kosher). I only found out later that it was Swiss Air and I was unable to get a kosher meal."

Pros: "I enjoyed the entirety of the flight."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "The Crew was wonderful."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "My flight was pleasant"

Cons: "Swiss boarding is a Charlie Foxtrot"

Pros: "crew was attentive"
Cons: "having to take a bus from the terminal to board"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, always professional"
Cons: "Smaller, older plane"

Pros: "- direct flight"
Cons: "- terrible seats/entertainment - terrible food - terrible service in general and unfriendly with any requests"

Pros: "smooth ride ... long :( ... but smooth and clean ... thank you for having a flight directly into tampa ... female copilot? really? :) wow, great job!"

Pros: "The crew is excellent but the seats are not comfortable enough. There should be a way to balance money and comfort,not just placing people in seats they do not fit into"
Cons: "Nothing,just the seats. Cleanliness was perfect"

Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."

Cons: "The only complaint I had was that it was very warm on the flight (and I usually get cold on flights), and in the seats we had there weren't fans above the seats. A few rows up they had fans, so apparently you have to pay extra for air... This wouldn't be a big deal on a short domestic flight, but for an international flight it was a long time to be uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "Comfortable seat, great crew."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no USB port and no entertainment"

Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."

Pros: "Seats super comfy. Ended up with 3 seats to myself that formed a bed for the lap Uk to NZ. Very nice!"

Pros: "Very professional"
Cons: "Lost luggage"

Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "We were told they were holding our flight, we ran 3 terminals and they’d already left."

Cons: "Lost a single baggage item, a car seat. Critical for us to leave the airport, and delayed us for over an hour upon arrival. Gave us a loaner car seat that barely fit our child."

Pros: "Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants."
Cons: "The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!"

Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."

Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Pros: "Crew was excellent -kind nice and very attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "Shirt flight but well catered, boarding was efficient and quick."
Cons: "Not lots of legroom but adequate for an hour long hop. It was cold on board and also had to board via steps from outside"

Pros: "Great service"

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK."
Cons: "Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in."

Cons: "KLM staff in the Prague airport were some of the rudest humans I have ever met. So incredibly uncaring and outright mean."

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

Pros: "Good services!"

Pros: "Norhing"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"

Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Clean airplane, friendly crew, no rush, nice snacks for a short one hour flight. Just generally a positive experience."

Pros: "Crew good flight was fine apart from delay due to fog in Amsterdam but kept informed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather in Amsterdam area"

Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."

Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Cons: "suitcase didn't turn up, although connection was quite tight"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."

Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"

Cons: "Long stop over at Schiphol. Too Long!!!!"

Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight from Amsterdam was 2 hours late. Caused me to miss connection on train from London to Leeds which then cost me 124 pounds to rebook. No information was forthcoming at all at the airport and there were 3 different departure times given. Absolute chaos. The airline is a joke"

Pros: "Easy airport business"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."

Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."

Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"

Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Flight delayed, had to take two more flights and was a four hour trip turned into a 12 hour, 4 countries trip"

Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."

Pros: "The crew were very friendly and accomodating, plane was clean and boarding amd disembarking was efficiently handled."
Cons: "55 minute delay was not welcome."

Pros: "Overall very nice flight, even comes with free drink and snack"

Pros: "The crew was great"

Pros: "All good"
Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"

Cons: "The flight was delayed at the last minute"

Pros: "All the staff was great."
Cons: "I was trying to upgrade for business and the front desk told me Can only be done 24 hours. What diferentes it makes if I paid in front desk or by the phone?"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"

Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."

Pros: "Good seat space, comfortable, on time arrival"
Cons: "The food was ok, not great. The plane was Very cold!!!"

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.”"

Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."

Pros: "Yes, they did"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. The flight attendants were friendly and solicitous. The food was good on the long haul leg of my trip. The trip itself was nice."
Cons: "It seems LATAM changed the way they charge fees in July. The ticket for my return trip included no allowance for checked bags, and that detail wasn't obvious on my reservation information. Imagine my surprise when I check-in for an international flight and I'm told I can't check any luggage because it isn't included on my ticket. I ended up paying $210 to check two bags. Also expect to pay a bit more for decent seat assignments. My default seat assignment was at the very back of the plane, right against the rear bulkhead where seats often can't recline. So, another $60 to move elsewhere."

Pros: "Puntualidad"

Pros: "We like the plane,seats and crew was excellent."
Cons: "Not a Latam problem but Congonhas airport is terrible if you have to use the bus to get to your plane. Airport Of Uberlandia is just terrible, small and crowded!!!!!"

Pros: "Puntual"

Cons: "Fo"

Pros: "Everything was on time. Food was good and movie selection was good"

Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."

Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"

Pros: "I fly for a living sand I’m on airlines all over the world. This little flight was of the worst I have ever been on and I’ll never fly Latam again"
Cons: "From the time my ticket was scanned it to 37 mins to board the plan... standing still in line. Caos! A message announces at any time we a happy to serve you water I got up and asked for water and was told wait until the cart comes by my seat. The seats are VERY CLOSE together and my row 22"

Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"

Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"

Pros: "Quick flight from Medellin to Barranquilla. Easy checkin & boarding. Crew was helpful getting everyone onbard and ready to go. No issues."

Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."

Cons: "This connection was 1 hour and 20 minutes and I was asked to pickup my luggage and do check-in again, when I arrived to the desk they said that I needed to be there 2 hours ago and just after arguing my connection situation they let my pass"

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The gate people were indifferent, bordering on rude. A bag which I’ve used for hundreds of flights as a carry on “weighed too much” and suddenly required checkin with a charge despite it being a carry on for the first leg. No one could explain to me the difference of the weight in the overhead versus the belly of the plane. I will NEVER fly LATAM again and will make sure that I spend a lot more than $30 for all of my future travels in their region. Too bad that their rules are designed to steal from the customer. I won’t be fooled again."

Pros: "Excellent price and value. Great service both before and after travelling with an infant"
Cons: "Food quality could be better"

Pros: "I liked almost all!!!"
Cons: "The sandwich (cool meal)... The may improve it..."

Pros: "Great airline. New Boeing 787. Very courteous crew. Nice business cabin with reclining seats and seatback IFE. Light meal served with some very good Chilean wine. As they are part of One World I used the very spacious Iberia lounge which also made the whole trip extremely comfortable"
Cons: "No negatives"

Pros: "The seats are comfortable, the attention of the crew is great."
Cons: "1 hour delay with no email or other notification. Flight number changed with no notification until check in. Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."

Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."
Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."

Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "crew, punctuality, comfort"

Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"

Pros: "Boarding and ticketing staff were helpful in guiding us through the process of traveling with a dog."
Cons: "I appreciated that there were two meals but would have appreciated more water. And a gluten free option for breakfast would have been great."

Pros: "Courteous, gracious service; efficient and comfortable flight. Thank you!"

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: "All of your staff where very nice and kind."

Cons: "no customer serve no help"

Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"

Cons: "When I got to Miami they had changed my next flight until the next morning. They did not offer me a hotel or anything. I had to wait in line to try to get on a flight to RDU. Then I had to wait in the airport for 12 hours to get a seat."

Cons: "Para abordar tuvimos que caminar hasta la salida en la puerta 30 y después esperar en el bus más de veinte minutos, pesima organización de subir los pasajeros para que esperen tanto tiempo en el bus con un calor sofocante Mi asiento era el 1B y no tenia la mesita para la bandeja"

Pros: "Absolutely no customer service. Lost my full payment because Latam has no flexibility. They don't need to employ people in a "custom service department " because they don't offer any. Their options for rescheduling is zero. Their reply to all modifications is "no". Not even if you're standing at the boarding gate and they have empty seats. Use any other options for flight. Try Sky Airlines instead."

Pros: "Dreamliner was great for our 11 hour flight to santiago"

Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Worst customer service I have ever experienced!"

Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"

Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."

Pros: "Collection of movies, and flight being ontime"

Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The aircraft seemed new or renovated and it was fairly clean."
Cons: "The crew was talking with a passenger at the end of the corridor while laughing very loud. This caused many passengers to wake up from their sleep or just disturb them from their reading.
