Okay 4.0

Cons: The plane was cramped and uncomfortable. I also don’t like all the additional baggage fees tacked on to the original ticket price. I didn’t expect that when i first bought the tickets.

Okay 4.8

Pros: 4 hour delay at Trenton airport

Cons: Customer service by Frontier at Trenton was horrendous. I never got a text or call or email about the delay. Wasted 5 hours of my day and took aaay one of the two nights my fiancé and I had to see it.

Good 6.0

Pros: The crew was amazing and cheerful considering the 2 hour delay and that is was so early in the morning

Cons: The communication was non existent. We started to board then suddenly the crew shut the door and everyone disappeared for 2 hours. We were left wondering what was going on and there was no one to ask!!! No updates on the apps just that our flight was boarding at a time well past

Good 7.0

Pros: The crew were pleasant and attentive. The seat was moderately comfortable. The food was decent and two services on a 5 hour flight was nice.

Cons: I’m getting so tired of flying American Internationally on old planes without modern norms. What international flight doesn’t have seat back entertainment or better cabin environment systems?!

LAX
LHR
Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Booked via JustFly.com and I guess I did not read the fine-print. What seemed like a great deal – $475 USD for an off-peak round trip, LAX-LON-LAX, booked two months in advance – was not much cheaper, once I paid seat assignments and, new one on me, +$100 to check one non-cabin-sized bag each way.

Cons: Please, don't bait and switch British Airways for American Airlines. I chose to fly BA for a reason, but outbound was AA. I know it's a tough job, tending to 300+ passengers on any trans-Atlantic flight, but AA comfort and courtesy were lacking. It was a different story flying home on my BA 747.

Mediocre 2.0

Pros: 2+ hours on the tarmac. Crew was clueless. Did not take care of passengers and shut down air to “save fuel”. Another 20+ minutes on tarmac at destination. Delay cost me a bit of money. TSA removed bubble wrap from fragile items and did not replace- every souvenir I bought was smashed.

Cons: Never fly United. Ever.

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.
