The flight was on time. Nothing else was acceptable about the travel on this plane.

I was made to check in my carry on bag because United made this Economy Basic ticket where they fly the over head bins empty. They charge 25 for the checked bag and only allow a personal item on board. This idiotic arrangement wasn't even clear to me during booking. And i don't understand what sense it makes to create an entire class of passengers stripped of their luggage. It's definitely not customer-centric approach. The wifi was dead. It is ALWAYS dead. No entertainment was provided. I'd prefer the flights from the 90s where i could watch a film on a shared screen with headphones.

Friendly staff, quick to get on the plane after a long wait in the security line. TSA is very inefficient in SAN.

The cabin crew didn’t let us know we got free drinks on the premium seating area. Hey should invite us proactively to order our drinks. The menu does not contain info on what is included on the premium seating purchased. The seats are too narrow.

Behavior of Stewardess Barbara extremely rude. I had gone to the restroom at the back of the aircraft at the beginning of service. I went up and wanted to sit on my 7C seat but she refused to move the cart to accommodate me to pass and made me stand at the back of the flight for 2 hour of the 1 hr 45 mins flight time

Getting to where I needed to go

Stopping the plane to fuel at another airport understandable. But then you ran out of food for purchase on the first flight (I was sitting in the back). Then connecting at LAX was horrible. Everyone had connecting flights. Off the plane onto a bus. then through customs then shuffled outside with no guidance from employees. Finally I found someone to ask bc 15-20 people were around me in the same boat. Where the f do we go we wondered. The employee was insanely rude. I’m attentive and I listen. he was saying pay attention I told you go right blah blah blah. He was literally standing there with his arm out pointing right and never said a word to anyone. So once we figured out to go outside and right we had a stressful ten minute wal hoping we were going the right way. We were! We get to tsa and have to go through screening again. Which is insane bc we just got off a plane. The tsa agent told us this happens everyday with a smerk. On top of her attitude, her and the two other lazy ladies on her line were painfully slow. The other two lines went at least twice as fast(no exaggeration!) made it to gate 66 to find it was changed without notice to 63. Made the flight by two minutes or less sweating from running around!

Everyone was great! Food drinks are great. Issues are with "policies" maybe?

Getting "bumped, asked to relocate to lesser seats to help with weight. then no compensation. also to find out we didnt get logged as moved. in an emergency? Woulda been bad. Trying to get help/comp on phone was total run-around. Lastly, drink sales ends too soon before landing. And started way too late this last flight.

I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened.

The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta.

When I travel economy I have come to expect indifferent tolerance by the flight crew. I come as self contained as possible and lay low. This crew was honestly different! At check in I requested a emergency row or bulkhead seat. I wasn't entitled or hold status with United but it never hurts to ask. What was not surprising was that I was denied as the flight was full and there were FF status fliers in the wait list already. What did surprise me was the sincere courtesy with which the agent handled my request and delivered the "bad" news. Small thing, but I noticed. Once on the flight in the back of the plane the complementary food and beverage items were meager, as expected, but the flight attendants service we generous! I was offered a full can of diet coke because I said I was thirsty... a full can. Again small but noticed. I couldn't reach my ear phones and the attendant found a pair in upper class and brought it to me without attitude. Later in the flight when another customer asked for a headphone the flight crew announced on the speakers that if anyone had an extra pair, would the be kind enough to share. I had mine in the overheard and was able to "pay it forward" by returning the ones she had provided me earlier. the WiFi on the plane wasn't operating properly. The attendants tried sever times to trouble shoot it and then offered me information on a refund and another diet coke in apology. Not a million dollars, but it showed me I mattered as their customer and they cared about the airline. It was what flying was like "back in the day" a nice experience.

WiFi didn't work on either portion of my trip.

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.

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.
