Easy transfer process, and super professional crew. There was plenty of leg space, and lots of TV and games options. I was pleasantly surprised to get decent and substantial food despite it being a short flight leg.

I couldn't check in online: it told me to select a seat even though they were all "taken". So I was forced to check in at the airport. I was surprised that the lunch main was spicy, maybe they should indicate that it's spicy.

No lift and no one offered assistance in business class to help at all.once on the plane service was outstanding.

It was nice to know that JetBlue and Asiana are connected. I did not need to claim and check my suitcase for the connecting flights anymore. The entertainment device was also nice.

I think JFK rather than Asiana was the issue. It was quite cold inside the boarding area, and the waiting area happened to be unpleasant because of a lack of seats and the noise. The announcements before boarding happened to be annoying. Lavatory happened to become quite messy at the end of the flight.

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,
