Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked one way business class ticket from EZE to GIG on June 25, 2024. I was notified that it was a code share with GOL airlines. I went to GOL airline business class check-in counter but was rudely not serviced. The check-in clerk, Irma Zacarias, which is on the picture, was racist and would not let us check in but allowed other people to check in first. 4 people were behind us at the check-in counter but Irma would not allow us to check-in but allowed the 4 people behind us to check in first. Then, when it was our turn, she was very rude and degraded us in servicing our ticket. When she found out that we were business class, she then became some what polite and asked if we wanted to send the bag,

Superb customer service in the GOL office in Rio at Uruguaino Metro Station - Souza was fantastic. Souza the customer service agent assisted me with my booking and ensured everything was absolutely perfect. Highly recommended! Thank you!

Sao Paulo - Fortaleza

I had a terrible experience with Gol when travelling with 2 pets (cats), I bought 2 special seats, they call "Gol Conforto" to have more space between the seats, so I could acommodate my cats better and during the checkin they said that the seats were confirmed, but when I was boarding, the attendant said that my seats were changed to common seats and I asked why and they didn't even care... They just changed without telling me, without refunding my money and even during the flight, the flight attendants treated my pets as if they were monsters, asking me and my friend to keep the container closed all the time, the cats couldn't even put the head out, 2 small cats in a 3 and a half hour flight and I wonder how flight attendants can be so horrible? To get my money back, I had to call Gol's customer service several times, when I got them to help me, I had to wait 40 minutes on the line and then the attendant told me that I would be refunded within 7 calendar days... After 10 days I had no response, I had to make a complaint on consumidor.gov and only then did they respond and refund my money, a company that is quick to make changes that harm the customer without even informing, but very slow to give back the money. So this is a warning for you that wants to travel with pets, DO NOT FLIGHT WITH GOL if you don't want to have a miserable experience.

They canceled the flight. They gave us a hotel to spend the night. The hotel was 2.5 hours away from the airport. By the time got there it was already time to come back to the airport. Why would they do such as stupid move when you many airports around the airport.

Orlando - Brasilia
International
My family chose this company because it offered a direct flight from Orlando to Brasilia (Brazil). We chose the Economy Plus because it allowed us to choose our seats (our family of three wanted to seat together). On the day of our departure we found out we were seated separately, my husband and my son were assigned aisle seats in different rows, and I was seated in the middle seat in yet another row. We bought our seats 3.5 months before!! The justification? “Sorry, that’s all we have left”. At the end, they placed us together in the last few aisles of the airplane. On that same day I insisted they would confirm our seats were still the same (seats 10 D, E and F) on our return flight, they said yes. Just to find out upon checking in that once again we were placed on aisle 27!! The justification? “Maybe they changed the aircraft, sorry, that’s all we have left”. Seats are cheap, no space for your legs, no Wi-Fi, no entertainment. A long flight to Brazil, and that’s how they treat their customers. Warning: they place all passengers with small children from aisles 28 to 33, so be prepared for the noise and kicks in your seats. Horrible experience, I would rather take three connections next time.

"Their app says you can track your flight in real time, but it needs internet to do so, which makes it useless since you can't use it on the plane"
