I used to love flying on Virgin America. It had been a few years since I flew with them so I was excited for my flight to San Francisco. My touch monitor and remote were broken/barely working when I got on the flight. I paid $8 to watch a movie (I've never paid that much to watch a movie on a flight). Wi-if for the duration of the flight $40. 30 minutes of wi-fi cost $9. These prices are ridiculous and unusual. What used to be comfort and convenience is now way over priced. I will not be flying with Virgin America anymore.

The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines.

The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on.

Going through TSA was horrible!! Honolulu airport definitely needs more help to get people through the lines. We are both in our 70's and had to wait way to long of time to get through security!!!

The flight was good but when we landed at Sea-Tac airport, we had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes to get to our gate!!! It was 2 hours before we got off the plane. We missed our Sea-Tac shuttle to take us to Oak Harbor and had to reschedule. We just made the next one and it cost us to reschedule. Thank goodness they had room for us on the next shuttle!!! Not very happy!!! It was no fault of the Alaska pilots or crew but the management of the airlines!!

Seat was uncomfortable due to insufficient foot space. All (about 6) overhead bins in the rear of the aircraft were full because crew stored “essential equipment” in them. Crew was not professional. After takeoff they never came around to see if anyone needed anything and not even a glass of water was offered for the entire flight. They didn’t even ensure that everyone wore seatbelts on landing - woman next to me was stretched out hugging her companion while landing wilth unbuckled seatbelt. Entertainment screen did not wirk properly.

Loved the entertainment options. Lots of free movies and tv shows and video games for the kids really helped the flight go by faster.

A little surprised they didn;t have any snacks for a nearly 6 hour flight. Also, we were in the back of the plane near the bathroom. Often there were as many as 10 people needing to use the bathroom. The front bathroom should be opened up to the rest of the plane in cases like that. We had people standing in the isle next to us waiting to use the restroom nearly the entire trip. Perhaps the front bathroom could be used for the elderly or some other option when there are only two rows of first class seats they didn't need a bathroom to themselves when the rest of the plane stands in line 10 or more people deep.

The heat was way high on the plane, and the air vents were not blowing enough cool air!! Also the carry on bag issue is out of hand, every JetBlue flight we were on was asking for volunteers to check their bags and people are really taking advantage of the situation of bring over size bags and way too much!

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.
