LATAM flight 2422 to Lima was cancelled on 1/3/17 routed their passengers to Santiago. Very poor customer service in Cordoba and Santiago. In Cordoba LATAM personnel had 5 hours to re-book passengers and they only did half of the plane. We arrived to Santiago (not our destination) without knowing how we were going to get to Lima. Finally, someone at...

We've booked about 9 months ahead in Business class with a 75 pitch lie-flat seat on a 787-9 and were denied this paid reservation. They only offered a 31 pitch seat on a A319 instead. Neither per Email nor phone they were able to give at least a reason and denied our original booking.

The window for International check in was from 55-59 and the line was all the way pass information center, outside of check in hall. There was no bag drop area. I was told the...

I have flown with LAN/LATAM many many times, and everything is pretty nice, personnel is generally nice, the dreamliner airplane is amazing, even in economy, and baggage handling is appropriate. However, there's 2 black spots they need to sort out. 1.- When anything goes wrong, be it turbulence, delays, baggage problems, you name it, I really mean ANYTHING, this airplane...

I was booked on the last evening flight from Cuzco to Lima departing @ 7:15pm to make my international connection with Delta @ 00:50. After boarding and waiting almost 45 minutes on the plane an announcement was made in Spanish and I noticed all...

I fly LAN fairly regularly, and they're very helpful, especially traveling with my service dog. The flights are rarely off schedule (helps to have pretty constant, moderate weather conditions) The snack boxes on the short-hops are just about perfect, for killing time & having a little nibble. The attendants are always very gracious; never had a snarly one, like you...

We took several flights with LAN whilst travelling in South America. The planes were clean and comfortable. Average legroom and food. Check-in efficient. Unfortunately I was ill when travelling from La Paz to Quito via Lima. The staff onboard the flight from La Paz to Quito were extremely helpful and sat me in Business Class where I slept for the...
