AFlight was fast and crew was accomdating.

I did not like the fact that I was padded down not once but twice at the age of 69 almost 70. Really did not know I was a threat to the airlines. I'm staying with my daughter at Ft.Bragg.

We arrived very late due to the airline being run so poorly. Something about paperwork according to the pilot. Now the rental car company is closed so I have to sleep at the airport and wait till the budget opens again in the morning. Frontier should put me up in a hotel as their mismanagement caused the delay not the weather. But they just said too bad because the flight was less than 4hours late. Frontier - never again!!!- plus the seats are painful

The flight attendant was super awesome. She was personable and had a great attitude. I didnt get her name, but she was by far the best! Blonde lady, smelled wonderful, very refreshing and funny conversation...(Ua1412 to LaGuardia) yeah yeah! Amazing!

I wanted the salami and cheese crackers but the flight wasn’t given any, so I chose the veggie smash/pita bread/quinoa/almond thing. Not too bad, but definitely no match for salami and cheese crackers. You know?

It got us to London. My bags were quickly available.

The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future.

Seats were really tight on this flight and I felt like I was either in the way of the isle or into the seat next to me. Plus the person next to me was listening to their music so loud I could pretty much clearly make out each annoying song.

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,
