They would not accomidate a flight change after I was delayed in an accident getting to the airport. One desk said there was a seat on the earlier flight and sent me out of the gate area to the front of the airport. When I got there a few minutes later they said no there is no seat. I was upset because I had to wait 6 hours now and go back through security again. I asked to speak to a supervisor. They pertended not to understand. I was persistant and then they siad oh here is a seat on the 1:00 flight. Then he goes do you want window or aisle. If there was no seats whey do I have a choice?

Boarding was delayed 30 min. The attendant who spoke to me, spoke in clear English. The one giving the announcement, her pronunciation was not completely clear. For a routine speech like that, it should be well-rehearsed and clear.

Everything about our flight went very well, and most were better than expected. The crew were very helpful. Our seats had plenty of room in economy. This were done very efficiently and with concern for value.

Our Vegan meals were rather tasteless and uninteresting. The only entertainment was what we brought with us and overhead monitors.

I didn’t like the limited choices for food. In addition I felt those that spoke Chinese were taken care of better. I sat towards the end of the plane and they ran out constantly of food. The food they did serve wasn’t very good.

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.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
