Flight was delayed more than 5 hours. My all schedule had to be changed. I had to wait at Newark airport for 6 hours with my two little children. I want denied board compensation. Alaska has to fix it. I am very upset about this flight.

We were sitting in first class. My husband went to use the restroom in our cabin and the female flight attendant told him to go back behind the curtain and use the bathroom assigned to his cabinet. He is Colombian and she surely profiled him, as I saw two other passengers from coach use the first class bathroom with no concerns.

The festive yet relaxing lighting during boatding, the great in flight movies, the friendly helpful staff, our generous legroom, the comfier than usual seats, the food ordering system.

The food quality could be improved with some more organic options.

We missed our bus connection to NH due to the delay and since there were no rental cars or airport hotel rooms we sat for 9 hours waiting for the first bus. Exhausting.

When I arrived at JFK after 14 hours long flight on Emirates, the service counter was understaffed with 1 hour long lines! Un-acceptable! Especially, since all I needed is to re-print my boarding pass, because US TSA would not accept the boarding pass printed by Emirates in India. The kiosk would not recognize my name on reservation! The kiosk did not recognize my recently issued US passport! Bloody annoying! Only able to print the pass after keying reservation code - yet, again not acceptable! The other, earlier attempts should have recognized me and found my reservation! Very upset with quality of service on the ground!

The seat.

The delayed of this flight. No explanation was provided. After boarding they decided to “fix” two of the luggage cabinets. And they fix nothing, they juat put tape on it. This flight delayed was three hour of nothing. My entertainment (screen) was damaged.

Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations

The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes.

Departure and arrival were on schedule.

We booked a flight on ANA Airlines specifically for our trip to Japan. However, upon arriving at the airport to board our plane we discovered the flight was operated by another carrier. Out intent and desire was to fly on ANA.

Not a good wifi connection. Could not access wifi using my united mileage plus account. System wouldn't accept or recognize my account number and I was locked out of my own account. Also wanted to access both my laptop and cellphone email acct but was locked out. Very irritating. Unable to get the work done that I had scheduled.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
