You can eat a dick regarding your flight from Syd to NYC. Delta is bullshit and so is your service. The end

Had more then normal snacks.

High numbered srat assignments board fron back of plane. This requires you to climb down & up stairs with carry-on bags. Would be good to mention when making reservation & seat assignments.

Sat in a business class seat in the upper deck and has a window seat so the “storage compartments” near the window are huge and I love having all my carryon items so available to me at all tunes. Also like the storage of inflight items on top of the compartmants during the flight.

The upper deck 747 windows are a weird angle so looking out means you crane your neck.

I liked the empty seat beside me.

No complaints, really. Wish I hadn't slept through the midnight snack. But I was able to sleep! That's a hit!

Great service, comfortable seats, little to no turbulence, all around a great flight!

When seat in front of you is reclined it takes away a lot of your personal space and makes it impossible to get up to go to bathroom

I didn’t like the food. The pancakes I couldn’t eat at all, because they were too dry and tasteless. It’s so inconvenient that there are no printed menus. I couldn’t understand what they were saying through the system and I had to ask the crew member and they were obviously tired of answering the same question from passengers about food options.

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.
