I was so pleased that United offered the flexibility to change my flight before the chicago snowstorm without incurring a change fee.

I paid for seats on my original flight. But ended up sitting separate from my traveling companion on the new flight.

Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight

Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English.

Price looked good at booking.

Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed.

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.

Smaller plane but ok for short flight

Crew was friendly.

My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time.

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,
