Not sure why I paid extra when they were just going to chpose my seat anyways (DL 2222 on 11/6) Hoping my return flight this not have this happen..... Will be calling Delta when we get home.

Cons: my toddler found a used vomit bag that a previous passenger left in the pocket behind the seats. He put his hand in and made a mess, getting it on the floor and his fave blanket etc. and when i nicely told the stewardess about the mess on floor and the reason, we weren't offered anything for cleanup

Pros: I have always looked for a Delta flight as my first choice. JetBlue will be my go to from here out. Great staff, comfortable seating, the snack bar on the flight is the best. Keeps the cart out of the isle less often on long flights.

Pros: I was about to miss the last bus home due to weather delay. the crew made an announcement asking passengers to let me get off first. Everyone did. They were amazing in every way.

Cons: 1. when there are delays...and the gates get super congested, you should a person directing people. 2. the majority of people at the gate, on board, making announcements – put their energy into speed and musicality in their voice. It should be about clarity. I know, they say the same thing 10 times an hour...but I want to get what they are saying...particularly if it's about safety.

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,
