Pros: Heathrow is huge and our gate changed during the last hour with out announcement until 35 minutes before the flight. There was a 2nd flight flying at the same time from a different gate with the same flight # with simply an A added which was very confusing.

Cons: Absolutely no food and we were charged for a soda... seriously? It took the WIFI 5 minutes to process the 1.75 sale. Are you kidding BA? Flight attend were indifferent to passengers and actually held their chlorine with the foolish shopping cart when we tried to make it to the rest room. Unpleasant at best. Oh, and there was no entertainment at all on the 767 we had unless you count the magazine. Sorry BA, you have some work to do.

Pros: Short flight, no entertainment. They still offer free snacks on short flights, a plus, but it was an almost frozen cheese sandwich. A Little bag of pretzels would be better. The crew was very friendly.

Cons: Boarding is confusing. Bad lines, unorganized, and people pushing. They should probably come up with a better system.

Okay 4.5

Pros: no comments

Cons: it is better to mention in the ticket whether it is with or without baggage , it makes a lot of inconvenience when we see the boarding pass and then go to the counter to pay extra baggage . the passenger came with one baggage from Kharkov and on a return it is without baggage on round trip booking ?

Pros: The flight from Tel Aviv followed and I had to fly to Holland to continue to Beijing. I also ordered kosher food and had to pay € 30 when the site was available for free. But in the end I was not given a kosher meal from the Netherlands to Beijing.

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.
