Children (3 within the age of 8-12)unattended left to pull on and kick the seat in front of them, loud arguing that was never addressed. My hair was pulled several times when they would grab the top of the seat to stand up or just harassing each other. I also witnessed them on cell phones that were not in airplane mode and never once did their parent reprimand them for their behavior. I had to do this from the seat in front of them. When the flight landed the entire family talked loudly about pushing their way off the plane to get to another flight, little did they know others had connecting flights to reach as well. Poor behavior & left to make others have a worse flight

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.

Eveything in the plane looked fantastic. But still a tight fit. Drinks and food were offered often and the employees retrieved the garbage prompty. Best thing was we left on time and were early getting to Seattle. Our baggage got to the baggage claim area at lightening speed. At least 4 times faster than with our return trip on Spirit.

economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight.

they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight.

First flight was delayed to wait for connecting passengers, connecting flight was not. Had to leave the terminal and wait in line with people checking bags to get another flight which made me I miss multiple alternative flights I could have caught if they had a desk inside the terminal. What was left was an 11 hour set of connecting flights the next morning instead of the original 4 hour direct flight. Speaking with the person rescheduling me, she admitted that no one had informed them that our flight was running late, which could have been to blame for why the connecting flight was not held a few minutes. Icing on the cake: my missed connecting flight landed 30 minutes early.

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.
