We flew all our local flights on GOL while in Brazil. What we weren't used to is the flights are cheaper if you don't book in any luggage - so we didn't. All aircraft are new and the flight staff were very pleasant during the flights - they tried to speak English which we really appreciated contrary to some other...

Flights with Gol are pretty good. The boarding is easy and without much hassle and confusion (which in Brazil is not exactly common). The planes are all in good shape and the crew is very attentive. The prices are low, but are still a little big more expensive in comparison to Azul, which is just as good (but Gol has...

The is a 8-hours flight from Brazil to Orlando. It is a good option because it is a direct flight to the U.S. The meals available on board were free, and were very good (above average for airlines) which surprised me a bit. The flight was a bit noisy since there were some high school kids (about 50) traveling to...

Their website is NOT user-friendly. Tried to buy the tickets on their site, but it was too painful, so I bought the tickets on Expedia. On the day we were flying, there was bad weather at the destination - I understand this will lead to delays. But their information flow was terrible. - GOL flights to our destination, both earlier...

Since purchasing the tickets I was bit apprehensive give the long flight in a 737, experience at the airport was bit weird, nothing too stressful but bit disorganized. Onboard service was excellent, seat was a bit tight for me but I’m not tiny so was to be expected. Arrival in Brasilia is very efficient, much easier compared to Rio or...

This was a short flight , about one hour , and we still got food service ! The crew was really efficient . The plane was fairly new and the flight was smooth . Check in could have been more efficient and this was the only glitch to otherwise an excellent flight !

We experienced very poor customer service when flying with GOL on our recent trip to South America. The staff appeared disgruntled and disorganized throughout the entire experience. Not one smile, not one seemed willing to assist with instructions and all of the staff appeared unhappy. The actual flight offered nothing but crackers for a 4 hour flight, which is atypical...

improved a lot since our last trip. Now you can take 10 kilos on board which makes more sense as Brazilians never travel light. Impressed that on a short flight they still serve drinks and a snack, something long abandoned by their Lantam competitors. Prices are always competitive and reliability excellent. Cant think of anything negative. apart from their website...
