The three flights were pretty good and the food was great, but there was a problem with my bag and Iberia was unable to retrieve it from Latam to send it to the final destination. It's been 3 days and no one responds my demands, saying its the other airline or the airport's fault. The bag is in Madrid still...

Only negative thing was having to collect checked in bag at Lima just to check it back in again even if the airline was the same. Oh, and short legroom. Other than that the flight was smooth and the service good.

Flight 603 on February 27th was my first time with LAN aka LATAM airlines. My wife and I both think that the service, attitude and overall performance an outstanding experience. When we changed planes in Santiago to flight 449 the service and attitude was equal. This left us with the belief that it is an airline that employees like to...

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...
