From checkin to in flight service. It was horrible. The 5 hours flight with nothing, no tv, movie, nor complimentary snacks or drink. Everything need to be purchased, even a small orange juice cup will cost about $4. The only free is a cup of ice water. When I asked for another water, they told me they only give 2 cups of 2 waters. If I need more, I need to purchase it. Omg! Really? I seriously think they hire those stewardesswith a minimum wage and they have to sale stuff for commission. Why would they need 5 stewardesses when they didn’t even serve.

Seats don’t recline which is nice for tall people who don’t like having their knees smashed

You have to pay extra for a carry on, but I was able to bring my backpack on full of stuff for free so that’s good.

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.
