The flight was OK and in house snacks served in relatively short journey. But there was absolutely no safety briefing at the commencement of the flight. This is bad. Staff surly. Flight late departing and very speedy turn round which wad good as it was late in the day. But plane not well cleaned between journeys..

Low-cost service, although there is no low-cost company in Brazil. However, Gol generally offers the best prices.

First they stuff up the ticket and then force me to pay extra at the check in. My 31st flight this year and the worst experience. A pack of thieves

My luggage was delayed by 6 days. The costumer service at the airport claimed that it would arrive with the next flight, which led us to stay in the city one day longer. However, this was untrue and wasted us a valuable day and the money for the hotel. The personnel responsible for the luggage promised to keep us up...

My last trip I flew Gol on 5 domestic flights working Brazil. The planes are ok but older service was pretty good. All 5 flights were meaningfully delayed. It’s the Southwest of Brazil without the on/time record.

Although there are tight armchairs you can purchase a bigger one. The food is very expensive on the flight which I don't consider something bad for short distances. Often we have problem and the crew lack information and people responsible don't help at all. Unfortunatelly, for some destinations that's the only option

We arrived from EU with a flight from another ArilineNetwork. But everything has been perfect the same. The GOL's people on ground were very polite helping a lot, as well the people on board. The service more than OK, even considering it was a domestic flight, and we'got in Salvador perfect in time. If you get in Brasil, it's an...

Very warm stuff on ground as well on air. Check in very fast and organized. Planes in excellent shape, and always on time. If u have the chance don't miss Gol's lounge is really worthy.
