LAX
ATL
Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Everything was fine until the passenger for seat 1E boarded

Cons: I paid EXTRA for comfort. I paid $89 to select my seat (1F). A very, very LARGE lady boarded the plane shortly before the door was closed. She was assigned to seat 1E. After some difficulty and struggles she was able to fasten her seatbelt. The gentlemen who was in seat 1D disappeared. I was LITERALLY unable to sit back comfortably in my seat because of this lady's size. Her body spilled over my armrest. I could not get comfortable at all. From Los Angeles to Atlanta I was miserable. I firmly believe that if someone is of a certain size, they should be required to purchase two seats. Why should I have to suffer when I paid extra to have a comfortable flight? So unfair.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Able to take off, fly, and land the plane.

Cons: Poor customer service and bag policy, which was NOT posted prior to my purchase. The seats were akin to being on a bus..., fixed in place, the definition of pain, unless you are gifted with adipose in that geographic region. A terrible flying experience—never again.

Excellent 8.8

Pros: Because the flight wasn't full we passengers in the main cabin had the chance to spread out a bit more, which was great on such a long flight. Also the flight attendant let me have my scotch for free! Hooray!

Cons: Without power at each seat it's difficult to take advantage of the otherwise free entertainment that is only accessible through the app or on a laptop. There was a DC power outlet at my seat (not all of the seats in the main cabin even have that) but guess what--it required a cigarette-lighter-style adapter to plug in. I certainly don't travel around with one of those! And most of the other seats in the main cabin had no access to power at all. My battery wouldn't possibly last through a 7-hour-plus flight without supplementary power. Oh well, fortunately there are still books and magazines. Just like old times. Be more like United or any other international airline, American!

Pros: After all the waiting we got to watch content for free (which is accountable for only 6 dollars)

Cons: After waiting for more than 1hr they started to give some information about the issues, they moved us to another plane that already was planned to be at SF at 10:40 (original flight was for 9pm), it got late again and we got to SFO by 12:20 am. More than 4 hours late. Even after that it took me a while to get a shuttle I even got to insist and explain again to get a Shuttle back home.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: How we were all told after most were ay the gate it was changed to a different gate once there we were told that it would be ay least 2hr late for maintenance. I'm handicapped couldn't get around that was time I could have spent with my family and I was Hungary snf needed to use the restroom which couldn't use until boarding. Very unprofessional I wouldn't give a better grade than a d'- not sure if I would use this airline again. At least we could have comped a free soda and chips. Since the airline new that was happening ahead of time and we could have made choice our selves what to doyou people charge for or fee for anything we might want to change but it's ok for you to treat us poorly sincerely Eugenio Cortez

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.
