We especially selected a direct flight from Inhambane to Maputo which should take appr 1 hour. But "for technical reasons" an extra stop in Villankulos was added which made the flight last more as 2 hours. Those technical reasons appeared to be a half full plane in Inhambane and in Villankulus more passengers entered the plane. Inhambane has only a...

Read a lot online about how bad this airline was but we flew them from: Maputo to Beira, Beira to Pemba, and Pemba to Maputo without any problem. One of our flights times was changed 1.5 hours earlier to make a stopover, but we were sent a text message AND an email to notify us of the change. We still...

This airline is notoriously unreliable and incredibly expensive. It's absolutely terrible the amount the tickets cost and the bad unreliable service you receive. It's mostly late, with reschedules flights and then NOONE assists. Worst of all is that there's no other choice to inhambane as LAM don't allow other airlines land there so we are forced to use the bad...

The planes appear to be clean and well maintained. Flew on the Embraer to Pemba and returned on a 737-700 to Maputo. Second flight was rescheduled with 24hrs notice to depart 6hr later than originally planned. This meant arriving at Maputo shortly before 3am. In flight service was OK.

Terrible service! My luggage has been opened during my flight from Pemba to Johannesburg, with a connection in Maputo, on the July 26th. Several items got stolen and LAM didn't offer me any assistance or at least informations about the procedures of the company for stolen luggages. I don't recommend the service of LAM, the airline doesn't respect the clients...

Had a very great flight (on Bombardier Q400), took me back to the company old days when everything was very good from check in to check out. The Captain was "Super great" the flight was very relaxed and the touch downs were brilliant - 110% to Mr. Louro.

So...flighyng with this airline...is basically a lottery .... your flight might be on time or might be cancelled.... 50/50 chance... The air planes are old and noisy, service is not good at all and...im really sure they just dont care.... they gave us a juice that said: juice of "orange or/and apple or/and other fruits.." so im not really sure...
