SLM has super nice serving staff, good pilots and nice food. The only thing they are very often delayed and do not inform the passengers most of the time.

Currently the only direct flight between Guayana and Miami, saving 3 to 4 hours on the alternatives. Older plane. A/C did not work before takeoff. making for quite a hot ambience. Friendly, helpful staff who speak Dutch and English. OK meals and soft drinks in tiny cups. Was a little late, a common practices. Easy check in. Comfortable seats.

I will never recommend this airline to anyone, they have terrible services, no information was given to customers,felt like you were begging for information, management sucks, was delayed for two days no answer, no explanation,I would like this airline to properly educate the employees and to reevaluate the company, customer service is very important and vital to a company.
