Very reasonable price.

You literally have to pay for even the basic things, including for seats to recline. Cushion on seats thin and seats don't recline. 5hrs flight and No entertainment, no tv, no radio, no complimentary food...they offered a cup of water.

The crew was friendly and informative. They were very helpful. The

The seats were uncomfortable. They were hard and so narrow I had to sit crooked in the seat to keep from getting banged into by the service carts and every person going by to the bathrooms. I'm not tiny, but I'm not huge either, it was just overcrowded. It was also very hot in the airplane the entire way from Phoenix to Spokane. My husband, who is always cold, was even hot.

We have been on 6 flights over the last 8 days, all with Delta and we have already started telling people how wonderful the service was. Sherry on this last flight was amazing, working so hard all by herself as our flight attendant. We were very impressed. And the pilots all came out to say goodbye and thank you. All very nice...esp for me who needed some wheelchair assistance. We will certainly fly with you again in the future.

The crew was helpful and apologetic.

They purposefully understaffed the check in counter, which you have to use. They charge for every little thing, even carry on bags and snacks. The seats might as well be lawn chairs. They are so close together everyone onboard will die from head injuries if there's an accident. I'll fly Southwest from now on.

The gate agent and the crew were great to accommodate the barrage of flight changes. Once we were cleared for takeoff the flight was very smooth and the cabin crew as well as the pilots did a fantastic job to ensure timely arrival and that everyone is accommodated.

I received at least 3 emails that that the flight was delayed: by 30min, 12min and then by 1min. Of course the mobile app did not reflect this (in an effort to make things more confusing). Once we boarded it was very very hot inside and the pilot informed us that we'll get cooled as soon as they start the engines.

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,
