I have arthritis (walk with a cane) and didn't have enough leg room....hated being in a middle seat....and due to that could not stand in flight to stretch legs. Also the crew on the way to New York made sure I had a wheelchair to cross the airport in Chicago and not so in New Orleans...had to make a visit to the emergency room after getting home and be off work for 5 days due to the condition of my leg after the walk across the airport.

Crew was polite and responsive.

Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up.

Took off on time, no issues. Flight was good - take offs and landings were great. There was lots of room for our carry ons and personal items because they charge for luggage!

I was worried about the baggage. We each took a backpack and then we checked some bags. We had no issues. I did not see anyone stopped for their "personal Item" being too large.

OTHER AIRLINES HAVE A 50# LIMIT. OUR BAG COST US ABOUT $30 TO BEGIN WITH. THEN THE COUNTER AGENT SAID OUR BAG WEIGHED 48#, WHICH COST US ANOTHER $38. THAT WAS AFTER I STUPIDLY SUBSCRIBED T THE $9 CLUB. KEEP THE MONEY. I WILL NEVER DARKEN YOUR GATE AGAIN.

I had the same exact thing happen on my return flight. Cancelled. No assistance with rebook. Had they been honest and straight forward I could have made proper accomdations for my return flight home. Instead a got the screw job TWICE. I understand that it is not in their control of the pilot strike. But good service would disclose that information as to not cause additional problems.

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.
