Mediocre 3.3

Was delayed by 40 minutes for weather (fine), but then they boarded and we sat in the plane while they refueled and waited...for another hour. Seats were very narrow, not clean, and charged extra for 1 checked bag.

Mediocre 2.0

I was told (via two notification emails) that the flight was delayed by 5 hours. Went to the airport, and then they told me the flight had gone on time. They also told me my fare had been “forfeited”. Last time I book with this airline.

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,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
