Your experience Flying with TAM Airlines (now LATAM Brasil)?
i looking for a flight Sao Paulo-Dubai and i found a very good offer with TAM Airlines using my miles ( now LATAM Brasil). Never heard of this airline before. Have you fly with it before? How was your experience? It is a safe airlines for a transatlantic flight?
How is the in-flight experience for such a long flight?
Thanks a lot for your tips
LATAM is the result of the merge between LAN and TAM. Lucky flew LAN earlier this year though I don’t see any reports for flights on TAM. To find these reports, go to the OMAAT home page and look in the far right-hand column where there is a list of tags. Click on LAN and you can see the review of his MAD-FRA flight.
Hey there! I fly Tam to JFK-EZE yearly with layovers in Sao Paolo and Rio. Easily some of the best economy flying I have experienced. Food is good and staff is super friendly and accommodating. Free booze with meals (and free refills too! )
Rio and Sao Paolo airports are recently renovated with state of the art facilities cause of the recent Olympics.
One thing to know if you are not South American – Brazil requires a visa to enter the country. I’ve never gotten one, but this does make for complicated layovers. There’s often no direct path from arriving flights to international departures, so you need to find a security officer to escort you through the airport. It’s weird.
Have a great trip!
