Tam is "ok". New planes have flatbed seats on business and service and food are ok, nothing sofisticated. It's a little worse than AA on the new planes and years away from what the Middle East airlines offer Tam lounge in São Paulo is spacious and nice with good food and drinks.

Latam has a app for entertainment which is great, specially if you have kids. Food is ok, could be better, but still better than Gol. Seats are uncomfortable for tall or overweight ppl.

They had two classes: Economy and Premium Business. So I flew in the Premium Business from Rio to Santiago, but it was more like Premium Economy. I rather enjoyed the trip, as the flight attendants were very friendly and helpful. We had a great view of snow-capped Andes Mountains. I had a complimentary access to the Pro Air Lounge in...

I only fly TAM because their flight times are usually the most convenient for me, since their service is not appealing. Flight attendants are not particularly helpful, food options run out quickly and you may get stuck with pasta as the only meal option.
