Cons: Flight was delayed, flight was overbooked, and WiFi wasn't working on the plane, so no entertainment at all, as the plane had no screens and we were supposed to use our own devices.

Okay 4.6

Pros: Honestly, Nothing!

Cons: Most terrible flying experience all around. I will never fly American airlines again.

SEA
CLT
Okay 5.6

Pros: The seats in first class. But far from adequate amenities for the price paid. There are no USB ports nor are there electric Outlets, yet you're expected to use your own tablet or phone to access their entertainment. When flying across the country that's a little ridiculous in this day and age.

Cons: . If you expect us to use our own devices you need to provide USB port or outlets. This was a coast to coast redeye,Iwas awake the whole flight. 20 min before landing announcement was made to not get up, We were not given time to use the restroom, brush teeth, have coffee before landing. Bad form.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: On time

Cons: Gate D60 is the gate from hell. I was told to go to a different number gate 3 times, and no direction board to reference. Worst airport ever. The staff are rude and could not understand most overhead announcements because their accents and talking super fast.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Comfortable and roomy seats.

Cons: The crew made me switch aisle seats (I specifically chose my spot) because the couple next to me had two babies on their laps. They told me to sit in the aisle seat which would then be in between the couple. So I had people reaching over me and crying babies were on both sides of me.

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,
