Okay 4.0

Pros: Crew on flight was very nice. Plane has a lot of space for legs and comfortable seats. We got vouchers and a toothbrush with tooth paste (AT LEAST THAT) for our forced overnight stay.

Cons: Horrible experience. Plane had an engine issue and ended up being delayed for so many HOURS that we had to sleep in Houston. The organization was a big mess - so poor that we reached the hotel only at 130am while we had to wake up at 4ish am to be at the airport again by 5am.

Pros: I’m pretty positive everything would’ve been great however we called frontier Airline several times to tell them the connecting flight was delayed unfortunately making us eight minutes late and they departed without us so we were not able to be on the flight and now we contacted the office.

Cons: In this uncontrollable circumstances with proof possibly allow a credit or refund better because now we have to book another flight or make a red another arrangements to drive or salon and pay for rooms. Town that we flew out from did not have frontier. This is a family medical ER trip not pleasure

A lady from Lufthansa told me the flight had just closed and suggested that I call aeromexico’s phone number. I did that and the gentleman on the phone told me I should go to the check-in counters. I mentioned they were empty and he had no other suggestions. After an hour on the airport and on the phone with no progress I booked a trip with United and traveled home.

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.
