LATAM charge 100 dollars flat rate for ANY oversize baggage regardless of the weight. If you travel with a bike for example expect to pay 100 dollars US PER TRIP regardless of your baggage weight. Most airlines do not do this. As long as you do not exceed weight limit you pay no extra. Add 100 extra per flight for oversize with LATAM

Service is dead and done in South America. Having arrived at the Juliaca (think Lake Titicaca) airport two and a half hours before our flight to Lima (at 6.30am) – a domestic flight, we find that we are ‘bumped’ off the flight! 12 people were refused entry to the flight due to over booking. Avianca (the airline responsible) had no reason for the ‘bumping’ just that it was full. We had paid for the flight 5 months before in Australia and had confirmed too. So we sit and wait for 4 hrs to be put on the only other flight out of there at approx 12.00pm on a Latam flight. BUT this was only to Cuzco where we had to collect our luggage and run to just get on another airlines flight to Lima. Why the rush? Well we have a connecting flight to Havana Cuba leaving at 4.15pm. We arrived in Lima and the Latam counter 15 minutes before the connecting flight was to leave and guess what – we were a NO SHOW! No amount of talkig or pleading would get us on to that flight! OK we thought but NO AGAIN. The Latam flight the next morning was full. And that was it. No help, no offer of accommodation, no compassion just a blank stare from a young child sitting behind a computer. We argued all the way up the

Lets enumerate the items that classifies the inexperience of this airliner.
Punctuality: 0 always delayed, always causing problems to passenger that needs to connect in that backwards country;
Food: Disgusting, always cold, no options, no taste, no use;
Staff: Rude staff, English almost zero, I have to use my Spanish to communicate with those useless life-forms;
Baggage Handling: Careless dumb life-forms, luggage always come broken, or lost which is normal for them, sad;
Service: rubbish, 3rd world service, indeed it is adequate to the origin;

MAO-GRU-ASU: Well now they are fully merged and you can already tell the difference, the crew are much more impersonal and sometimes shabby, on board service is minimal, and soon they’ll be charging for food, planes on the positive note, new, clean and fresh, I was surprised they’re really taking punctuality to a new level, much more improved on that side. Well if the price is right, why not?

Just got the flight JJ 8056 from Rio(GIG) to Miami (MIA) on 03/29/16 and the aircraft was nasty and broken pieces that I took some pictures that can prove it , as the parts were fallen next to the Windows’s seat at 38 row, toilets are very old and was broken around the bottom to flush . I was pretty scared. The screen to watch movies was so scratchy and so blurry . Horrible audio/video so I could not watch any movie. Terrible 9 hours flight . Tam and Lan should not have this aircraft designated to international flight since it look like need to have all parts remodeled and replaced . Next trip will fly in a different company because of this discomfort and disappointed flight. I will not recommend this especific flight that depart around 9.30 pm.
